    Default Things You Never Noticed III: The Search for Spot

    I just realized that when Eugene tried to lecture the diva in 487 on whether Roy could go to Heaven, and she very angrily informed him that he had no authority to be involved in the decision-making process, she was probably specifically remembering the time he impersonated a being of pure Law and Good, by hijacking a summoning, in order to tamper with a trial.

    Just noticed panel 6 in 509, where therkla kills the valedictorian ninja.

    Oh, and in the first panel here (http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0517.html), the Wight In Thanh's Shoes has a little smile on his face, probably from getting his shoes.

    Reviewing recent strips for the express purpose of coming up with something to post here (and demonstrate how easy it is to find such things in an extremely detailed work like this), I have noticed that in 858 Tarquin alludes to having personal experience with Sabine's most useful skillset (and no points for guessing what that is).

    Aside from the obvoius gag, this indicates several things previously only vaguely implied regarding the situation of Tarquin's group prior to the Empire of Blood's most recent revolution: chiefly, that Sabine was involved with the situation prior to the events depicted in the flashback panel of 725. Prior to this, I would have thought it believable that Sabine had (for instance) been sent by the IFCC or perhaps some other Tanar'ri figure with the authority to dispatch a Succubus on a long-term mission specifically to interfere with the machinations of the western continent's shadow rulers.

    So THAT'S how she met Nale!

    Who looks exactly like his brother and their father. Whoa. Somebody mentioned that Elan was probably able to distract Sabine so easily by kissing her because he looked exactly like Nale, so was Sabine attracted to Nale because he looked like a younger (and more importantly, less subtle) version of his father?

    Ooooh, remember in #46 when she was surprised that Nale was trying subtlety?

    You're good.

    I didn't "just" notice this, but I missed it on my first read, and only saw it on subsequent reads, probably because there was so much time between the two strips.

    In 758, when Tarquin is describing how he and his cohort rule through puppets, the King of Tears is shown being told that he needs a new port city.

    http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0758.html

    Guess what? Exactly 60 strips earlier, when we get to see the map of the western continent, the Free City of Doom (which the Weepies are besieging) is located next to an ocean harbor.

    I have just noticed how Durkon is naturally confused when he sees Celia at the trial, with others greeting her merrily... those two had never met before.

    In the second panel of this strip (http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0517.html), you can see that the box next to the one Haley is hiding in is labeled "Gouda: Product of Cliffport".

    That second part is especially weird because Cliffport doesn't open trade routes with Gobbotopia until here:(http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0702.html), almost 200 strips later. How did that get there?

    And it's also really cute how in comic 200 (http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0200.html) you can see Elan trying to play bardsong with his kazoo. How totally Elan.

    I'm presuming it's a product of the old trade route between Azure City and Cliffport. The box isn't necessarily filled with anything, so it could be this years-old box left around with the other boxes. Cliffport sends Azure City a box, Azure City takes the cheese and eats it, Azure City leaves the box around, Cliffport cuts off ties when goblins take over Azure City.

    However, gouda is a specific fondness of goblins, is it not? Dunno. Which reminds me, those slaves the Resistance liberated in their introduction were carrying food, was that from a raid, or salvage, or what?

    I just noticed that in #759, the giany, flaming "Elan" is spelled with burning escaped slaves. Immediately after Haley and V help some slaves escape, but Haley and V only helped 23 escape, but ELAN had 30 little burning dot. I'm not surprised Tarquin would round up 7 more slaves from somewhere else, but it was interesting.

    Gobbotopia's territory includes some excellent farmland. Enough time had passed that the farms could be beginning to start up again.

    I never noticed that while julia didn't think about the fact that Durkon could look up her skirt if she climbed down a ladder after him, it must have occurred to her at some point since she seems to be trying to hold her dress closed while doing so.

    I suspect it's more that Haley's Self-Loathing looks like Haley as a teenager, a design that originated well before any of the other personalities appeared (and did so back when the Giant was more prone to straight recolors, to boot).

    On the subject of the thread, though, I hadn't previously noticed that Haley's Self-Reliance doesn't have that loose hair.

    I just got the joke here.

    It's needlessly complicated because a fighter/rogue/sorcerer gives essentially the same abilities as a pure bard. It's also a neat tie in to how Nale enjoys his pointlessly overly complex plans.

    H-uh. That explains some things. I'm not as well-versed in D&D as some here, so I never made the connection.

    Also, I'd be remiss if I didn't post a little revelation made in the Goblins thread:

The Monster is in the Darkness, and therefore, by the rules, blind, even if everything around him is lit.
    Obviously the monster can see, but still. Adds a new layer to the jokes, which I found neat.

    If you look closely, you can see Haley's Self-Reliance's strand of hair. It's hard see because it's yellow.

    I don't know if this really counts, but until a few minutes ago I never really considered the link between the dragons and the Draketooth clan being that they were presumably sorcerers. The common explanation for sorcerers is having dragonblood once be a part of their family line. Might have just been my own mis-sight but I found it interesting.

    I just realized that in #811, Nale doesn't seem overly perturbed by the presence of Malack, and seems to casually ask Malack how the family is. Earlier there was the misunderstanding regarding who killed Tarquin's previous wife. Maybe the same thing is going on with Malack's kids. Also, Malack is a high level Cleric of a God of Death, he may have survived in a weakened state the exact same thing that killed his kids.
