    Also, I forgot we were adding the dates and "latest strips" for each entry. Does someone want to catch us back up on that? Or link to whatever threads were being used for that purpose and I'll eventually get around to it? Thanks.

    I'm adding this to the Index for easy access, since this question seems to be coming up a lot lately on the forum. This quote has a limited shelf life but I will remove it when it is no longer needed (that's why it is also being kept separate at the top of the page...)

    It is tough to dig through the Kickstarter announcements to find this info, so that's why I think this quickie link is helpful:

    For Those Who Missed Out on Kickstarter: The swag, sans patches, will be very likely available again at some point.

    Whoa. I just found out we have [post] and [thread] tags as well as the [url] tags from a post made by Rawhide. I clicked quote on the first post to check; since they use the [url] tag, would it be a good idea to switch the ones that link directly to giantitp posts to [post] tags? It would save some room, so in time we could fit in a few more comments.

    It's not necessarily a good idea, though. It appears that it sends you to the page on the same tab instead of opening a new one. Plus it sends you right to the thread instead of to a page with nothing but the post. That's a little annoying compared to the [url] tags, but I'm not sure how much it would bug people.

    Thanks for that, Whiffet. I think last I checked we're only about 1/2 to 2/3rds of the way to the letter-count-limit, so it probably isn't imminently necessary... what I may do is each time I update the Index I'll change five or six of the url tags to post tags, since changing all of them at once sounds time consuming.

    Given that this is a bit of a slow spell for the Index I may also take some time in a week or two to move some things around and reorganize - I've already noticed a few places that could use some improvement. So that may be an up and coming update as well.

    Yes, that was my initial plan. I'd have reserved more posts for this one if I'd had any idea the index would grow so rapidly... we had quite a long run of Rich forum activity there for awhile.

    This may not be what you want in this index, but I thought it was funny. And hey, a discussion about it is a possibility.

    If the OotS were dice, Belkar would be a d4, Vaarsuvius a d6 and Durkon a d12.

    I'm not sure if that statement is necessary. Isn't it rather obvious from the strip itself that they are mummies? I mean, they are called mummies by the LG.

    That is funny. But one of the problems with including tweets in the Index is that I'm pretty sure Twitter only archives tweets for a limited amount of time, meaning that eventually the tweets will disappear. Though I suppose I could just include it and then remove the link when it one day fails?

    The question has been raised on these forums several times since that comic went up, I think it is useful to add.

    That's true.

    I'm having difficulties figuring out which subsection to put it under. "Art and Magic" since the mummies are the result of a spell, and the question is about their appearance? Any suggestions?

    "Art and Magic" works, but I think it should probably go under "D&D Rules and Explanations", given that stuff like Durkons diamond dust falls under that section.

    Yeah, that sounds good. I'll put it there, at least until I get around to some sort of reorganization.

    To be honest, I don't think it's worth including at all. There's several direct statements in the comic that they are mummies. It's not a question that's likely to be asked again, and if it is, we can point to the comic, rather than The Giant's comments.

    I felt the same way, but I thought I was in the minority on this. If there's enough people who feel that it shouldn't be in the Index I'll gladly remove it. Otherwise it stays for now, I guess.

    Also, @WowWeird, thanks for pointing out that typo. I'll fix it in the next update.

    Yeah, I agree with Kish. It seems obvious to me that they're real mummies, but enough people have thought otherwise that I think it's worth keeping The Giant's statement. If the confusion arises again at some later date, this way we'll at least be prepared for it.
