Sometimes it's instant, you walk in, and are immediately dead. Sometimes you get SOO CLOSE to overcoming it, only to then be wiped out. No matter what you do, you can NOT beat this obstacle. you can NOT continue the game. you've tried looking for ways around it, another path or an item that you missed, but there isn't any. it's either beat this encounter, or stop playing.

    So what do you do?

    You stop playing, at least for a little while. Maybe pick up something else instead to help you cool off. Maybe you'll come back with a clear head, maybe you won't come back at all. either way, you're getting out of a stressful situation because it's actively hurting you.
    If other people were actively being hurt because I started playing that game? Then I guess I'd suck it up and power through no matter how bad it sucked. Being a good person isn't about doing what's best for yourself if other people get hurt as a result. El's not some innocent bystander. She's complicit in helping create a situation where other people are dying. She helped the Toaster gather power and resources, and she also walked away when she could have helped Ardon stop him. Now she's still running from the situation and whining that she might have to deal with it one day.
    That's her right to do...but it's not the right thing to do.

    if you look ahead a few pages though, Odie was also knocked out/back during that encounter, and then taken away. Terry wasn't confirmed dead until a page or two later. i should read the page more.

    the lightning was bright though and Odie was probably focusing more on Krakaboom then the barkeep. so he might not have noticed.

    Or he just figured that Terry coming back back to life in a world with resurrection magic isn't that crazy.

    Or maybe he thinks they're talking about a different person named Terry.

    Or someone pretending to be Terry, hence the air quotes.

    Really, there are quite a few explanations Odi could have come up with, so his lack of confusion is not unbelievable.

    I mean...the first explanation doesn't work because Ell never implied it was crazy. She just said that Terry left town after he got raised and Odie was surprised to learn that Terry died. Which I think also means it doesn't really make sense that he thought she was talking about a different person. I suppose it makes sense that he just didn't realize that Terry died in Dire's attack.

    We know he's not good at counting the skull ghosts. I guess he just missed it.

    Given the fact that everyone stopped posting I'm going to assume that I'm not the only one who feels like the comic desperately misses Ardon, and probably 45 as well. As nice as it is to have Odie back, he's just not entertaining enough to carry a comic the way Ardon was.

    Likewise. This was never a particularly active thread to begin with (it started in 2015 and we're only on page 40).
    NB: While I never mean to offend anybody, sometimes the unfortunate combination of Aspergersism and the inherent difficulty of reading a situation through uninflected text over the internet get in the way of that goal. Please feel free to point out any social faux pas, inappropriate joke timing, etc.

    While some of the OotS page threads can hit 40+ REALLY quickly.

    But few actually do, last I checked. But when they go through the roof, they do so quickly.

    While still following the comic, I don't see much that needs urgent analysis and immediate nerdy discussion.
    It's a nice development because there are less "OMG, why did Ardon do that, when will he finally bite the dust???" moments. He is dead now, good for him. I really hope that the apparition Odie had recently was just a figment of Odies' own imagination. I for one can live with a loooooong Ardon-free time.

    So they found more constructs (warforged? toasters?) dressed as animals and red-robed guys with nefarious plans. And Peanut went to the King of Whiteness who is a detached fool, apparently, to blab about Southern Crossing. Sure, why not. I'm okay with a story arc that slowly unfolds.
