    Default Oh my gods!! (Spoiler warning?)

    So first, I don't usually frequent this forum, so I apologize if this has been brought up before...

    Second, I was reading through the comic again, when I came across this little gem:
    http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0137.html

    Spoiler: Eh... I'll put it in here just to be safe

    BANJO WAS ALMOST PART OF THE ASGARD PANTHEON!!! Do you realize how much this could have changed the Godsmoot?!?


    ...Okay, I'm going back to lurking now.

    Additionally, Odin probably wasn't quite all there, mentally when he was considering admitting a puppet to the Northern Pantheon.

    Not a whit, Fyraltari, if the cost of the spread of knowledge is repetition, the ideal man' life should be an endless pattern! We are playgrounders, Fyraltari, we are the torchbearers of knowledge, an ever spreading fire lighting up the shadows of ignorance, a fire that shall never burn out, until everyone on this earth draws there final breath. No one shall dare apologize for their attempts to gain knowledge, nor for any ignorance on their part.

    We defy augury, Fyraltari, there is a special providence in the fall of a sparrow.

    I like how that comic foreshadows The Dark One not being accounted for in any existing deific protocols.

    Giggles has an entire island of orcs on Banjo, so I think he has a leg up.

    That said, Giggles and Banjo are both believed in by about the same number of people (like 200) so that's doing alright. Though there are probably only 10 or so active Banjo worshippers aside from prayers at special events.

    Now you listen, you ungrateful wench, the mystic order of the pen15 will rise from the ashes of our dead playground. They will slaughter those who disagree with them and burn their corpses, even now they are all around their spies are always watching, always waiting to kill and replace us. When they return, they will cut off Rich's head and declare sovereignty of the playground. They will not be just rulers. If you speak out in the night, you will be brought to the gallows and your family meant to watch as they torture you to death. They have millions of soildiers just waiting to pillage this playground, don't you see? Don't you see! DON'T YOU SEE!

    I find the very idea of fate repulsive, because if everything is predetermined then, what's the point?

    We still get to enjoy the ride. It's like a big cosmic roller coaster.

    As the powerful play goes on, does it really matter if we're contributing the verse, or just acting it out? Could we even tell the difference in the first place?
