    Default The Fifth Color

    .... Clearly, Banjo needs to become the Fifth Color. He fits the definitions; he has followers (Orcs, Ellen, Belkar at one point) and he was created without any help from other gods. He specifically rejects joining the other pantheons, despite Thor and Odin seeming to give it consideration. Additionally, as shown above, his hat is purple; the same color as the one Thor is looking for.

    He even has his own pantheon now!

    The bare minimum required to contribute to sealing the Rift is a 9th level-worth of divine power. Banjo hasn't enough to to be noticeable by a mid-level human Fighter.

    Also, he's a puppet.

    If even Demi-gods who used to be mortals haven't reached full-godhood yet, i doubt a inanimate puppet would reach full-on godhood in the span of a few weeks

    I’m really surprised nobody else thought of that.

    Maybe the Banjo idea could be seen as foreshadowing of the Dark One story line - that the ascension of new gods is crucial to the overall plot. In this sense the panels where Thor and Odin express interest are more than one-liners. They are open to the possibilities. However just because an appetizer consists of a ham and melon sculpture doesn't mean the whole meal will.
    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

    People have been positing this idea since the tie at the Godsmoot became a serious concern.

    Yes, I suppose I really should have seen through that one, shouldn't I.

    Really if Internet forums had mandatory sarcasm/joke headers, we'd be in a better condition all round.

    Seems a bit mean-spirited to blame the responder for there being absolutely nothing in the "joke" post to indicate that it wasn't serious. I checked, no hidden, white-font words, no emoji's, and no "/s"

    Apart from the fact that Dion was replying to hroŞila's own sarcastic post that was referencing a "solution" that was proposed so often that the comic itself adressed it.

    Also, Dion was the one posting.

    No, pretty sure you were the one I was replying to, as evidenced by the quote! :P

    Also, I said nothing in the post indicated that the post was not serious. You then... agreed with me... but you said "Apart from" which implies disagreement. I'm confused.

    You misunderstand me, I was saying that the fact that the post under discussion was posted by Dion, and the nature of the post that post was responding to were clear indicators that it was not serious.

    I do sometimes make serious posts, but...

    This is an internet discussion board about a webcomic, where we spend hours discussing Star Wars, Harry Potter, and whether or not an imaginary kobold called “The Oracle” violates the laws of quantum mechanics, as understood by Deepak Chopra.

    I’m not serious very often.
