    Default Crowning Moment of [X]

    I've searched through the three pages of topics and I couldn't find anything like this, so hopefully this isn't repeating another (recent) thread. If it's against the rules for some other reason, sorry .

    This is a thread to discuss what you think have been some of the pivotal, most awesome, funny, badass, cool, significant, moving, suprising, etc, etc, moments of the comic so far.

    And yes, the name is stolen from TVTropes (I've never dedicated the many, many hours that would be needed to read through TVTropes' lists of crowning OotS moments, so any repetition is as unintentional as it is irrelevant).

    For example, I've always thought the second-last box in this strip is a wonderfully understated crowning moment of romance, and the tenth box here is one of the entire comic's best crowning moments of badass .

    So... discuss!

    And apparently, this awesome expression of romantic badass is

    Never mind, while typing that bad joke I saw the romance, but I think you meant a different strip for the badass (Unless Durkon walking off with his darkvision on is badass)

    I am now off to find this strip where the tenth panel is full of badass.

    Oh, and I think we'll need a full compilation for all of the crowning moments of paladinery that Hinjo, O-Chul, Thanh, and Lien have.

    I'll save you all some time.

    Crowning moment of awesome begun at the first panel of this comic and has not yet ended.
    I know what you're thinking. "Did he prepare six Explosive Runes this morning or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is the 3rd level spell Explosive Runes, the most powerful Abjuration in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

    Yeah, it was amazing.

    Crowning moment of badassness.

    I'd say, alternatively, his crowning moment of growing a spine.

    well, last strip definitely counts as a crowning moment of awesome for redcloak
    In memory of Evisceratus: he dreamed of a better world, but he lacked the class levels to make the dream come true.

    Looks like Redcloak is in a surge of Crowning Moments of Awesome.

    If he keeps up at this pace, he'll be destroying Xykon five strips from now.

    Also, seeing Xykon horrified is a crowning moment of something all by itself .

    That is pretty amazing. I wish I could donate more but things are looking pretty horrible money-wise at the moment .

    Crowning moment of brutality


    As brutal as Darth V is, and as horrible a punishment as he gave Mama Black Dragon in the end, that actual 'shrlrrfkprsh' moment is awesome.



    EDIT: Sorry, didn't quite get the purpose of the thread. Link changed accordingly.

    Is a Crowning Moment different from an Epic Moment, or is this just a parallel thread?

    Whatever.

    Gotta have the Crowning Moments of Belkar!
