    I don't know looks gray to me. It's the one with the full helmet, back right, not the scull cap.

    The one on the left is brown, the one on the right is grey/black.

    Yeah, that one I recognized.

    Each one of us, alone, is but a drop in the sea
    Our powers pale compared with the great heroes
    Our battles donít hit theheadlines or shake the earth
    But they are few, canít be everywhere, and we, many
    So, when the world or universe needs saving, they come
    But when people needs saving, we are the ones to appear
    We're underdogs, but we rise up to the challenge to be heroes.

    Apologies if this is the wrong place to ask, but I was curious: is there a place where other things the characters have done are counted?

    Specifically, I was wondering if anyone has a tally for how often each character has broken the 4th wall. Thought it would be interesting to see the numbers

    We used to have a place where we counted how many times Belkar invented nicknames, but then we got bored counting so it fell past the thread necromancy limit.

    The magic thread indexes all of the uses of magic in the comic. This is in the process of being cross-indexed with the wiki Categories pages, which also keep track of spell use, e.g. Category:Uses Fireball. Other things like bardic music, sneak attacks, and halfing rage leaping attacks are similarly categorized. Breaking the fourth wall is not currently a category in the wiki, but it could be if you want it to!

    Is it time to consider a new thread curator? Martianmister said she'd be back to update the thread by the end of August, and it's now well into November.

    Her profile says "Last Activity 2019-08-26 12:19 PM ".

    I instigated the last attempt to find a new curator. She turned up at the last moment just in time to keep control. So I shall say no more. I hope her research and life is going well.
    Ever wondered how many games are mentioned in the comic? I have listed them all in a geeklist: https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/2...es-order-stick

    I do think there's got to be some limit after which we're forced to find a new curator. My personal feeling is to give her a little more time. Has anyone DM'd her to ask?

    As the guy who was going to be the new curator after the last attempt (and who would still be interested in the job if it opened up again), I agree that we don't want to go through that again.

    I think we should wait at least until the end of the year before deciding to select a new curator. Given the likely hiatus after Utterly Dwarfed is completed, I don't think that should be an issue.

    Yeah, given that this book is about to end, I think the thread can get away without having a curator for a while yet.

    Speaking of unupdated threads, I'm seeing close to half of the character portraits on page 1 (where appearances are listed) as broken-graphic blotches, while the rest look just fine. Is this just my computer being fussy, or is anyone else seeing this too?

    Most of the smilies are being hosted by photo bucket, which currently blurs out images appearing on other sites such as this one, so thats why they're blurred out (imgur has also blocked us I believe but several browsers just ignore this, which is why more than just the 13 forum smilies we have here work).
