    No, she does not hurt her.

    Madeline is so badass it would almost be insufferable if she wasn't so sweet about it.
    Note to future baddies: When the Lady closes her eyes, don't attack, don't monologue, don't make presumptuous statements liable to tempt fate.

    Mike, I got the email from you about the Kickstarter thing. Any news? I live in the same city as WotC, want me to go down there and make mean faces at their lawyers?

    They sent a letter, but Mike sent out an email that basically says right in the WotC website it says that a rust monster is not IP. It sounds like a scare tactic with no grounds, but I'm not lawyer enough to understand fully, nor would I comment here if I were.

    Hey, maybe WotC/Hasbro will like it enough that they will buy the rights to make this little guy from Mike for millions of dollars and he can retire from any day job and write Rusty comics for a living.

    He can't talk about it yet. I am betting it has something to do with WOTC and the claim that the plush doll is infringing on their intellectual property.

    Interesting fact: Nerds and geeks (the main consumers of role-playing games and trading card games) seem to correlate fairly strongly with people who object to that sort of thing. If that sort of thing is what happened, and it keeps happening, a certain company may end up losing a substantially larger portion of their market share than they counted on...

    Well, if that is what's happening here then that's a bunch of people who are made aware of it, and can make other people aware of it, and so on. And of course the more it's used the more people are aware of it.

    Hopefully the company in question is smarter than that and will just make reasonable demands when necessary (e.g. statements that no challenge to any rights are taking place, not using intellectual property to compete with the holder of said property, etc.), but if they aren't, then it could lead to a gradual loss of market share (accelerating as more people become aware and notice a pattern).

    Exclamation Re: The Monstrous Misadventures of Rusty & Co.

    Attention fellow fans of Rusty&Co:

    I don't pretend to know exactly what's happened here, but I smell another case of "corporate oaf sicked his lawyers on some Joe who offended his Ebenezer-Scrooge sensibilities".

    Anyhow: last month, I discovered this comic and thought it so hilarious I went on an archive trawl and saved not only the comics themselves, but the entire webpages they were on. So if push comes to shove, I have the complete web pages for every comic up to Level 6 #44. They're all in a nice neat ZIP file on multiple computers - in case one suddenly dies, unlikely as that is - and I'll gladly post the archive on any free and reputable filesharing site.

    Unfortunately that's all I have, because by the time I finished trawling it was very late at night. The "Arcade", "About", and "Loot" tabs I didn't even click on once. Full disclosure and all that jazz.

    But just FYI - if the absolute worst is true - I can and will help.

    You know, if this is what some suspect, that could be bad news for this site, Goblins, and any other D&D based webcomic out there.

    I am just scared, since most of what I read are D&D webcomics and I have used them to interest my friends in D&D (get them hooked on the comics and then introduce them to the game so they understand more). And things like YAFGC use things that are the intellectual property of WOTC (beholders and the like) and they sell books/make money.

    Say, if the site really did get nuked preemptively due to the plushies, the guy who runs YAFGC is usually willing to spread the word.

    We're just engaging in paranoid speculation, fueled by the fact that the actual site owner/creator 'can't talk about the issue', which indicates it is directly tied to the plushie dispute and isn't simply a hosting failure. Beyond that we have no idea.

    I can certainly think of other possibilities. Given the small amount of data, it feels like a more likely theory than any of the other four theories I have, but besides Mike, who really knows? For all we know it could be something referenced, like Kraken Rogers or Cloaker Cola. (Theory #2 of 5. I will not state the other three.)

    I just don't want to see my friend fail, especially when his endeavor is my favorite webcomic. I remember, at work, years back, him showing me the first 3 comics in response to a comment I made about how it'd be fun to play a gelatinous adventurer (I've never been a fan of anything too normal). I believe my example was a half-gelatinous elf (They'd have the shape of an elf, the look/consistency of gelatin, and be able to wear clothes/speak/etc).

    Back then, he only had three comics drawn and no intention to post them online or continue the series, despite me & a few other coworkers suggesting he do so. It was a few years before he finally decided to, to keep his drawing skills sharp by drawing once a week. (Judging by how great the comic looked, I believe he was quite successful in this endeavor.)

    This stuff just comes so naturally to him too. When he wants to, he can just spout off pun after pun in casual conversation. Not crappy ones either. As a DM, his only notes would be monster stats and rarely a general map, if there was a particularly complex multi-room puzzle he wanted to pull off. He can pretty much make up everything as he's going and really make the stories immersive for his players.

    My avatar here is of a character he was the DM for. We were an overpowered bunch, but he managed to keep us challenged despite this, and was even able to use the 4e skill challenge system in a nice way. He was the best DM I've had. Combining his DM storytelling skills and his great use of the difficult-to-master art of puns into a webcomic was genius.

    Unfortunately, we're on different shores now, so no more games with him, but I've always looked forward to seeing his next comic.
