Ah, Telepathic Bond, or as I like to call it, the free metagaming spell!
You never have to worry about justifying table talk ever again!
If Caleb ever picks up that spell in Critical Role, they should rename it Widowgast’s Metagaming Pigeon.
In today’s D&D game, our artificer just picked up a dead warforged as a long term project.
You collect some strange stuff after a long enough adventure.
That seems important, actually.
Or maybe the runes deal necrotic damage and the lich just laughed it off. That’s a pretty big gamble to take.
You can tell tht this is set in 3.5 and not 5E because all of the tension of the scene is based around which team has the more effective Ranger.
You make a fair point.
yeah, I’m with Elan on this one, this is all way too sudden.
There are still so many more opprotunities to ratchet up the tension by geting us closer to the end of the world!
Sometimes the only way to make a good plan is by process of elimination.
Order of the Stick has been pretty good at having a villain who wants equality, yet managing to make it not condemn such efforts (though nowadays I would suggest not doing it in the first place, this is a long running series.), and definitely not going to just drop the topic without resolution at the end given what the writer has to say about the issue.
But the point is this: a goblin can be killed for just being “evil” while an evil human can be treated as a valued member of a freaking lawful good society.
But just because his cause is just doesn’t mean it excuses a plan to hold the world hostage or working with a sadistic lich.
Redcloak is a weaselly liar to himself, who being haunted by guilt, sunk cost fallacy and and a need to “win”.
Its not him being “mad” or “overemotional”. He’s making choices, bad ones but they are concious choices, not a frothing maniac.
And some of those choices I can’t blame him for except for his earlier actions that put him in that position where its the best choice with the information he has.
Nobody ever sends me asks so thank you for taking the time to send one. I'mm glad you liked it :) It’s sort of fun to be behind on a webcomic. Getting a lot of content at once is very different from getting a little content always.
Know know what? It is really funny that my url is the name of a webcomic character with a red and purple color scheme and my profile picture is of a completely different webcomic character with a red and purple color scheme. It’s not my fault so few of you have read both webcomics. (It’s not your fault either, unless you are @rose-icosahedron. You have failed, and you shall pay)
Apropos that Caleb Widogast and Varsuvius have very similar self-image.
will say the only reason i keep this blog online is that every few months one or two people go through and mass like every vaarsuvius post ive ever made and that warms my heart so have some sketches
Thoughts on Strip 1218
Ahhhh so many questions!!!
Are we gonna get to finally see behind one of the doors?
Will the Order and/or Team Evil find monsters behind their chosen door?
Are we really going to get the OotS vs TE battle so soon?
Will the IFCC decide to step in and claim V’s soul?
Where is the Monster in the Dark and will he play a role in the fight? Assuming there even is one??
I don’t know! But just generally: much squee! Very excite!
And I concur with Minrah - it’s nice to see the Order communicating well and working together. A somewhat ironic statement of course, but nevertheless true, and all the more powerful for it. It feels like they’ve really earned it.
Plus I liked V’s quizzical eyebrow raise when Roy turned to Elan for input. That was a nice background detail.
I literally think about Belkar’s character arc all the time like holy shit this guy went from an INCREDIBLY one-dimensional joke-generator to a chad I love him
