    frown OOTS #958 - The Discussion Thread

    New comic is up.

    (I just noticed that I misnumbered it; should be fixed in a moment.)

    This comic clearly does not do what its title promises! ;)

    I was slightly confused when I logged on and the title on the left said "957 This sucks". Thought you suddenly disliked the choice to have Belkar go overboard. :D

    Ponies not only make ME want to be a better person than I was before they entered my life, they make me want to HELP OTHERS be better people too.

    And that is a GOOD thing by any definition.

    We'll that's an interesting use of relax-O-vision. I guess Durkon can't bear to look? Though does it also imply that he now thinks of the Order as being almost like his family?

    Also you'd think the vampire's eagerness would alert Roy, now that he's seeing it. I mean, if it really were Durkon in there he'd be a lot more careful and try harder to make it less painful. He'd probably apologize a lot too.

    I like how everyone is so nonchalant about Belkar falling overboard. Like its not even a thing they're all that concerned about, they just know he is going to survive the fall because DnD falling rules.

    and yeah, Vampire the Requiem/Masquerade reference again. Apparently other RPG's are fictional in their universe too.

    I don't get it.

    What was the purpose of this strip ?

    And what was the panel where we see Durkon family ??

    It shows that the song is one Durkon remembers, maybe.

    Man, Belkar really is unlucky...

    So, I guess the Giant is not referencing True Blood with the "erotic subtext" because... well, it's not exactly subtext there. Aren't vampires supposed to get an increase in Charisma? Doesn't really work for Durkon so far... (Though, maybe fake Durkon just had abysmal charisma to begin with)

    Most likely Rich was referring to the rules for Vampire: The Masquerade, where drinking from vampires creates Ghouls (mortals temporarily empowered by vampiric blood) and the Blood Bond (creating a fanatical sense of semi-romantic loyalty to the vamp in question).

    Elan is being way too meta here. I can't even grasp the layers of "we must follow story tropes" in the sane comic that distinguishes real and fictional vampires.

    "This is like when he tried to get Miko to kill him, just to get her in trouble."

    And of course, there was no possible actual justification for him doing that at all.

    Oh wait *facepalm*

    Poor Elan, all his fun crushed by the reality of vampirism. I like how the comic puts it in perspective.

    He'll probably assume Belkar is concocting an elaborate scheme to try and get Durkon staked.

    I assume this is what's meant: Freyja

    Uncle Squeaky is also called Thirden, some Joke I dont get? Third Squeaky Wheel?
    Probably just his name and no joke intended. Perhaps acquired the nickname when first learning to play and was producing more noise than good music.
    I'm still waiting for YwkYwk, a Welsh bard kobold. She plays a crwth and lives in a cwm. It's lonely in that cwm, so I'm sure she'd like a cwtch.

    Huh. My first impression was that Elan was getting a glimpse of Durkon's memory.

    I always appreciate when someone mocks modern vampire lore, so it's only natural that Elan does so!

    I wonder what the flashback portends. The Giant wouldn't throw that in there unless it is going to play a greater role moving forward. I guess that we are going to see a lot more of Durkon's family, since this book appears to focus on Durkon being a vampire. Should be good stuff...

    I wonder if all these memories will come up when and or if they return Durkon back to life.
