    Hint: The Gollum-like word usage occurs in the course of a character telling a story (or perhaps a joke... what's going on in this scene is not perfectly clear to me).

    I don't know, but I think you've got one in your pocketses!

    If that's correct, then:

    Find Haley's bow with the string broken.

    With respect to the current question, how angry are we talking? Blackwing has angry eyebrows in the current strip (panel 7). Are you looking for something angrier than that?

    How about this one?

    The panel where he's chasing Mr. Scruffy around. He looks pretty angry in that one.

    Frankly i was trying to ask a question about the current comic without being blatantly obvoius about it. So yes, both answers you provided are valid.

    Oh! There isn't a new question yet, is there? Okay then...

    Show me visual evidence of a critical hit.

    I'd make a case for Malack's Harm spell used on an unhurt Nale.

Other instances of touch-spells from characters with black spell auras, even very powerful ones, show only a single shade of black when the spell hits. This could indeed be visual evidence of that 'extra d6', as it were. And, as with any good critical hit, the recipient show a measure of surprise when he actually survives it...

    So, if you agree... Find three real-world product placements—parodies like Sanguine Ave and quirky misspellings like Teevo don’t count. (Apologies if something like this has been asked recently -- I've been away from the boards for a while!)

    I invite people to try and answer your question, as it seems to be a good one, but no. In the example that I'm thinking of, something specific happens that only happens on a critical hit, and at no other time. You know for sure it's a crit without having to bring in any other evidence.

    ...although now that I think about it, my question requires some reasonably specific knowledge of DnD rules on the part of those trying to answer it. Is that beyond the purview of the quiz game?

    ...okay, we have too many questions going at once right now. Fortunately, this one I can do.

    Magic on. Magic off.

    Not OQ. Answer some of the other ones.

    Well, here's Diet Coke. So that's one.

    Here are the 4th edition DnD books. So that's two. I won't count Redcloak's 3rd edition books, since "Real-world DnD books" can probably count as just one thing.

    How about the Visa and Mastercard logos? Do those count as products?

    Do titles of posts count, or does it have to actually appear or be mentioned in panel?

    I'd only count products that appear in panel, even when they're not discussed specifically (like the credit card logos). All those are good, though only one was one I was thinking of! Now, clue me in (again, coming back after a while) -- the rules are still that anything that answers the question satisfactorily is fine, even if it's not the specific instance that the asker has in mind? In any case, these are all legit. If anyone's looking for bonus points, there are at least two more... if not, carry on!

    Yup, those are pretty much the rules! I'll keep looking for things, but I'd like to repost my original question, so people don't have to scroll back up to find it:

    Show me visual evidence of a critical hit. It is not in any way ambiguous that a crit has occurred, but it does require knowing a little something about how a certain magic item works, in-game.

    ...you know, I could swear there was a post here with a link to Monopoly just a second ago. Maybe it's the boards updating. Maybe I'm losing my mind.

    Vorpal Sword severs heads on a critical hit, right?

    Edit - I deleted the Monopoly answer, cause it was so out of date and ninja'd.
    Didn't know anyone had seen it. Never mind.

    Either way: Show me visual evidence of a critical hit that is not caused by a vorpal sword.

    I'd say yes, honestly. We've long since passed the point where everyone who reads OOTS knows anything about D&D.

    Okay. That seems fair. Consider it an open question, then.

    If I had a few more ranks in Knowledge (Religion), I'd be a lot more worried about this.

    As for the current question, could you clarify that, please?

    I'm afraid no. I'm looking for a more "stereotypical" protrait of a hippie's philosophy.

    Haley's Icy Burst Longbow. The arrows are always icy, but the "BURST!" effect only happens on a successful crit. Whenever it happens in the comic, the person she crits is encased in ice and and we have a neat little "BURST!" sound effect.
