    Sabine's bracelet simply disappears between #142 and 252.

    EDIT: And she has it in #725's flashback.

    I just noticed that even Xykon's TeeVo is drawn on the poster! Also, Jones and Rodriguez are actually split up, with Jones being on the (mostly) evil side. I'm sure there's a lot more stuff I haven't noticed on that poster too, of course..

    Presumably, Nale is not the only one that can grow his goatees back after shaving them.

    Interesting to note that the Oracle is on the "evil" side there, although I suppose that's actually where you'd expect to find a Tiamat-worshipping kobold!

    I never realized that Belkar was reading Dune here (panel 4), and rooting for Baron Harkonan! (I always thought he was complaining that Varsuvius was holding him too close to the purple worm's maw!)

    Here's something I noticed as being absent, but I didn't think it warranted its own thread.

    That is: where is Roy's grandmother? We didn't see her (nor was she mentioned) in the afterlife.

    I don't know why this random thought came to me but it did.

    Thing I noticed:
    Spoiler
    Show
    In OtOoPCs, Eugene lived from 1102-1180. WaXPs' cast page lists him as 81. Since WaXPs takes place in early 1184, this makes sense.

    However, what I'm getting at is that this, in addition to Roy turning 29 while in Celestia, proves that OOTS characters would probably insta-age when resurrected. Thus, this is another reason as to why Redcloak hasn't resurrected any of his family members--with the possible exception of his sister, they'd probably be too old.

    But it also raises an interesting question: Say Eric does accept a resurrection. Does he instantly age to 21~ish, yet still have the mind of a child?

    Perhaps they don't insta-age or otherwise displays effects of aging, but their ages are counted in terms of total elapsed time since birth, whether alive or dead.

    Either that or his max age would be cut short tremendously and would have a max age of around 30-40 (Not quite sure on the timeline)

    Or his evil twin Drarig switched places with him.

    Actually (given how central Elan's family troubles are to what's been happening on the Western continent) I wouldn't be too surprised if Girard's life did turn out to have some parallels to Elan's.

    I never noticed Elan's different hair styles in the first and sixth/seventh panels. Also:

    Really? This is what you want to spend your time discussing, how I drew the characters within the first 20 strips before I settled on how they would look?
    I mean his hair in the first, sixth and seventh panels. They are different from the rest "first 20 strips" and just look random.

    It is something the Giant, the artist said.
    Deus Ex Machina - refers to the ending of Greek plays where an actor playing a Greek God is lowered onto the stage and solves all of the problems. It is not a problem solved by a Chekov's Gun, Skill, or Armory. It is not an @$$ pull or whatever solved the plot in all those twilight novels. it is not characters acting out of character, or a twist you don't like.
