    (Header to new viewers: the main goal of the GwaH [guy with a Halberd] group is to lobby for his return at a later strip in the comic)

    wow, when I first posted this idea I was practically lambasted for even mentioning it. I'm really glad now that it is actually seeing support. .

    At this point. It is up to each individual person to decide which way they want to spread it. Any funny or wacky signatures furthers the goal of this grassroots organization (WWGwtH was pretty good). Not to mention posting a note in your signature is the easiest to do.

    Trazoi has been generous enough to post an avatar and smiley of the GwtH(Guy.With.the.Halberd) for use as well (it can be found in this thread).

    Also, my signature has a link to a strip that actually shows GwtH talking for several frames.


    Couple things need to be decided:
    • Should we have a formal ranking system? Or would you rather have it as a "choose your own rank" system? Or should we not have one at all?
    • we need to brainstorm a few ideas on how to spread the word (My only two at the moment are "post wacky sig" and "Letter ninja the Giant").


    If you have thought of a really good slogan or any such thing like that don't be afraid to post it in here.

    Also, I advise you to put a link back to this thread if you are using your signature so others can have a connection to the information it gives.

    I will be contributing my own stuff as well.

    Here are the pictures and their ready useable links for easy posting

    Smiley GwaH

    I would love to see That Guy With The Halberd make a big comeback. At the time of that strip my life was a wreck. But seeing him standing there with that big halberd made me realize there was light at the end of the tunnel! Thank you Halberd Guy, for everything!

    I was the same way. At that point in my life I was really heavy into huffing arcane nether dust. I spent most of my life looking for "just one more extra dimensional fix"

    Then GwtH Halberd came up to me and brought me out of that magic induced coma. It would be a crime to not see him reappear in the Strip!

    Maybe someone could make a comic detailing the backstory of TGWAH, why exactly DOES he use a halberd? Why not a spear or some other polearm?

    As for slogans all I got are pretty stupid such as Guy with a halbard, he's a mans man and a ladies man (in my head I imagine him concentrating until he has a beard, this would also make a cool song now that I think about in the style of th Shaft opening or http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPn2rJyyTcw)

    I guess I'm stuck on the wording you used in the OP. Do you really think that it's OK to "force" the Giant to do something with his strip? "Encourage" him to bring the guy back, or "lobby for his return," but "force" smacks of arrogance and a lack of... something important in social interactions.

    I hope don't think that's what you meant to imply, but....

    You're absolutely right (I thought I had already changed it). I'll edit right now.

    With the banner. I suggest putting a link to this page on it if you know how (otherwise, some people would just stare at it wondering what it is about).

    here is a few I made (varying in quality):

    In Halberd we Trust.

    tGwaH Club: kiss our 10ft reach.

    tGwaH '08: Why choose the lesser attack reach?

    tGwaH: Reach out and touch someone.

    The best one:
    You know what I heard? You need guy with a Halberd!

    (Or a variant)

    Don't take my word! check out guy with a Halberd!

    Just as the Joker says:

    as for the smiley. How did you use it?
    (those are direct links, they should work if you put them in [IMG] brackets)
    I may be able to point out an error if there is one.

    oh ye of little faith. You and all of your ilk will rue the day you ever crossed paths with tGwaH's 10ft reach!

    Besides, though it was implied by many that tGwaH is in the Azure city resistance, the truth was never shown. For all we know he could be on Hinjo's Junk.

    Sorry to be pessimistic, but I think the most you're likely to get is a marked grave for him when azure city is liberated...

    It doesn't matter particularly whether he stayed in Azure city or boarded Hinjo's junk, both groups have undergone a good few encounters without sufficient resurrection capabilities (because Durkon doesn't have the material components required, or if he does, he's saving them for Roy), so I think it's just a matter of attrition...

    So, IMO, best case is a marked grave- possibly a sarcophagus with a stone effigy if you're really lucky, but only if every other dead Paladin gets one.
