    Yep! I always kind of wonder what will happen if Elan ever runs into him again. That would be an interesting conversation, especially if other Order members are around...

    Not so much "never noticed" as "never realized", but:

    Roy's plan to have Julia act as a medium wouldn't have worked, since the school has pretty good wards against that sort of thing.

    Only on Meadwarts weekends . . . If a guardian has signed off on it.

    Didn't you read the books?
    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.

    Words have meanings. You can't just change meanings to suit yourself. Otherwise born carbon fligaments Xyeon palar.

    Nale's build is a bad duplication of a bard. But only because Nale can't take any bard levels, since he is lawful.

    He wouldn't take them even if he could--remember when he said that bards were underpowered back in strip #50?

    I never noticed the colours of the stars on the Goblin flag, here, had a precise meaning.

    As a side note, I wonder if we'll ever see Bugbears in this comic...

    Julios ship is named the Mechane. A mechane was the mechanism used to place actors (usually playing gods) on the stage from above in greek plays, and the origin of the latin phrase "deus ex machina".

    A great reference and acknowledgement of the fact that Julios sudden appearance in the strip is indeed a deus ex machina to both make Elan semi-competent and get him to azure city quickly.

    I don't think it means that his devoted fanbase has literally made Julio into a god, though

    Taking the Star Wars metaphors a bit further... look at this scene. The scene parallels a similar scene in Return of the Jedi, and not just because of the themal detonator bit either.

    That is,

    Malack is an albino, like Bib Fortuna.
    Tarquin wears a T-shaped helm, like Boba Fett.
    And the Empress is monstrously fat, like Jabba the Hutt.

    Somehow I didn't catch this before, but I have now.

    How...how did you not notice that? That's the whole point of the statement. The entire crux of the entire scream.

    This is "Things I Never Noticed." The point is to come here, feeling silly that you didn't notice something, and admit "I can't believe I never noticed that."

    Thou shalt not judge those brave enough to do so, for that is the entire point of the thread.

    And while it is the entire point of the scream its not the only possible point of the scream. It could've been the much simpler "Thog's pissed". Its much deeper than that however. So

    Also on this one: Elan gets a lantern over his head instead of a light bulb.

    EDIT: Got another one.
    http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0727.html
    The title is "And It Will Never Work Again" -- as in, Elan's not going to coincidentally "trip over the main plot" again.

    But he already did pretty much that once, after getting a level in Dashing Swordsman:
    http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0392.html

    Cue speculation: is this an actual DS ability?

    How did he trip over the main plot there? He was specifically heading to Azure City to get Nale before he could hurt any of the Order of the Stick. And that's exactly what he got. No accidents were involved.
