    Ok guys, are you up for another tricky one? Find a single strip that has all three of:
    • blue horizontal lines in the air indicating that a character is running fast or dashing, like in #233 sixth panel,
    • blue vertical lines in the air indicating that a character is falling, like in #219 fifth panel, and
    • blue curved lines in the air indicating that a character is jumping off a platform, like in #238 sixth panel.


    Incidentally, for occasions like this, should we adjust the rules to give a bit more time for questions asked on a weekend, when there are fewer forum visitors?

    Does this one count?

    Meh, let's keep the rules simple. There's no punishment for providing a hint or the answer a bit later on weekends anyway.

    No, because it doesn't have vertical lines indicating a character falling. There's vertical lines indicating a tower of the castle falling, but the tower isn't a character. It's a nice find though. Keep searching.

    I'm glad I could find a hard question. Last week I felt so out of ideas that I almost asked “find a person with their hand missing and replaced by a weapon”, which is effectively a repeat of a previous question except that the previous question specified what weapon.

    See, you can't quite tell but one of the lines in the tower falling panel actually represents a falling Hobgob, so technically...

    A character dashes with blue lines, then falls with blue lines. They fall on a disposable mook and proceed to grab the weapon of that mook. They are thus holding two weapons at a time, which is unusual for this character, because they aren't like Belkar or Yukyuk who wield two weapons all the time.

    For this chart: all titles are prefixed with "Order of the Stick Trivia XX: ". Exceptions are noted with parenthesis, and deviate after the "Order of the Stick Trivia". So the title "Order of the Stick Trivia Twenty—Critical Role" would be noted in the table as "(Twenty—) Critical Role".

    So the question isn't wasted: the tuna sandwich is the one Elan gets from the bandits.

    My question still stands:

    Find me a person substituting their weapon for their hand.

    This does not include anyone attacking with magic, magical weapons, or having no weapons and instead attacking with their fists (like O-Chul during the escape segment, or V using the hand spells) because otherwise almost every mage or monk character in the comic would count.

    On the other hand, I don't support titles that reference d20 rolls, because they're very generic. Any thread in this subforum could choose them into the title, and some of them even have a better reason. The XX eyes aren't that much better either, but at least the non-magical feign death is a trivia FAQ.

    There's four in On the Origin of the PCs page 20 and 21, but we don't allow the extra books in this thread. I've no idea where we can find five. I don't even know three in the online comics. #224 shows two places to sleep close to each other.

    Wait, maybe you don't mean inns and taverns, but ordinary private houses. #568 eighth panel shows six huts in a row on the left, does that count? Or how about the five houses in #40 sixth panel? OQ if so.

    Meant #558, where Elan talks to "Banjo" on the orc island. It's edited now.

    And no, I'm looking for places where anyone can sleep, not just the person owning the place

    Interesting. It's not among Haley's wands, not in the discount bin, not the wand of dismissal that the Oracle uses, and not the wand of sending that Uncle Geoff uses. I don't recall any other wands that have appeared in the online strips. There's also Zz'dtri's wands. In #910 they're too small to tell for sure whether the nib of top one is star shaped, but it might be. I wonder, should I be looking for another strip showing that same wand? I also missed Nale's wand of enervation, the fruit pie sorcerer, Captain Julio Scoundrél's wand of sending, Miron's wand of cold, Hilgya's wand of protection from law, and Blackwing's wand, but those are the wrong shape or color.

    I didn't really see Zz'dtri wand, one could argue that its cap is star-shaped, but the cap of the one I want - on the online strip, yep - is clearly and unmistakeably in the shape of a star, and it's red

    EDIT: on the other hand, Zz'dtri has a wand with a GREEN star-shaped cap, and the two caps, the red and the green, seem to be not quite the same.

    Yes, but there's more than one shape of star-shaped wand nib, as you can see in #970.

    Ah, hm, you're right.

    Mmmmh, I could say that I'd like to get a 5-point start-shaped red nib, but I think I should have specified it in the main question, I was too generic. If you want, you could get it as a solved question.

    Good point, I meant to say "477" but never noticed I had make the mistake. It's supposed to be 497-20=477, I accidentally typed 477. Hope that makes it work better.

    Caerulea, if you could update this please?
