    Why, after the incident when Hailey lost her top, am I imagining the entire party gathering around with popcorn as those two duke it out on muddy ground in the last frame?

    when there is a huge haul of gold that is a problem for the story progression and ankward for the character development... and this gold ends up in an explosion, and the loss of the gold makes room for a new storyline, and the loss of the gold is funny

    the gold is lost

    Nah, the gold is still there. It's just melted down into one REALLY HUGE slag heap.

    Of course, it isn't pure anymore. It now has pieces of timber, chamber pots, nails, etc. melted into it.
    No, I didn't put my axe in your back on purpose. I was... Ummm... Under a spell. Yeah, that's it. A spell.

    In a real world, maybe.
    In a rpg with a "realistic feeling", sure
    In a comic strip? Nah.

    It was a screenplay explosion, so strong enough to delete the gold from the paper...
    ... or the pixels, that is

    I believe there was a comment elsewhere about the comics being routinely on-time, even early?

    I write this after Wednesday's being late and Friday's being MIA altogether.

    It hasn't been meeting the 9:00 am target very regularly, but it isn't officially "late" until midnight. So if Wednesday's comic is up sometime on Wednesday, it isn't late.

    Friday's is definitely late, though. Normally there are comments before now. I wonder if people are still digesting turkey?

    Assuming that Rich hasn't had another unfortunate mishap, then the lack of a comic on friday is not too much of a problem. ;)


    Happy Thanksgiving Rich.
    Real Life? - so what is that then?

    I have no issues with the comic being late, I was just wondering whether checking in periodically would be worth the effort.

    wasn't the gold in bags of holding which would cause the contents to be lost when the bags are destroyed (http://d20srd.org/srd/magicItems/won...m#bagofHolding)

    This has been addressed multiple times in multiple threads.
    NO.
    The gold was not in bags of holding. It was in ordinary bags. This is because the bags of holding are full of other treasure.

    Amazingly, the marketing gurus haven't really figured out how to make a buck off of this holiday in the US either. A little bit off of turkey and a few decorations is all. The day after, however, is another story all together. It's called Black Friday here and is considered the first shopping day for Christmas. It's the biggest sale day of the year. Almost every year we hear of someone getting trampled in the mad rush for the big sale item at a Wal-Mart or some such store. The funny thing is that, since they can't seem to market Thanksgiving very well, most stores are now resorting to putting out the Christmas stuff the day after Halloween.

    Edit. What the heck! What was I thinking when I linked to that quote and then came out with the above. Must have ingested too much turkey. Anyway, Looking forward to the 250.

    That pisses me off so much! We're loosing Halloween :'(because of this lack of visibility. I see less and less children passing it and even saw some of them do it in CAR!!! What's the point of it then? Candies? (please don't be so materialist). Where's the fun in car??

    Hey, don't sweat it. I like the way you make it sound like a stock market crash - Black Friday. Just about sums up Christmas for me. This year, we're buying a goat for an African family via a charity. No one else is getting any presents.
