    After an exhaustive study of n- dimensional calculus and some freshman bull sessions over beer and other toxic substances I can definitively prove that the concept of perpendicularity is not possible in realspace which is always curved, and therefore the whole argument in favor of its existence is a chimera. Named Trigak.

    However, with more beer and other toxic substances I am prepared to support the idea that n-dimensional calculus is unreal, and that everything is inherently perpendicular to everything else.

    We had a team working on that, but then had a huge setback when we needed to explain to the bunch of 5th graders what "perpendicular" means. Then we realized we needed to explain it to their manager.

    How did it take until page three for "One saving throw at a time" to come up. That line is insanely badass, and probably my single favourite line in the entire comic.

    O-Chul has a monopoly on the first dozen or so badass lines, imo. Nobody else can match him.

    In terms of cool quotes in battles, I don't think neither O Chul nor Sigdi can hold a candle to Elan (to a bard/dashing swordsman these things come as a class feature :-) )

    Good thing I'm not wearing armour.

    You were her captain. Now you're going down with her ship.



    Awesome, Elan at his best.

    While elan certainly has a lot of good punchlines, they always lack the certain OOMPH! of taking a disintegrate to the face and just smiting evil!

    O-Chul is the stoic quiet type. This means, of course, that when he opens his mouth to speak it'll almost always be awesome or at least worthwhile to listen to.

    Oh, he is more than ok, but I don't hype him as much as some people :-D


    Good catch with V, though. He has some awesome lines when he is not busy being a mass murderer or repentant mass murderer.

    But for the lawful badass fighter archetype, I think I like Roy waaaaay more than both Sigdi and O-Chul, but that's just my taste :-)

    I really liked this one from the most recent comic:

    "Nothing left ta bind ye means nothin' left ta hide behind."

    Directly applicable to the current situation, but also a great way of looking at responsibility and how we trade obligation for power.

    A good number of truly epic quotes have been mentioned already. Let me add one that's more on the subtle side, but I find it every bit as epic as is it hilarious:

    Guess what spell I cast before giving this to the bird.

    Expeditious Retreat?

    ...wait, what happens when you give someone an item that you've cast Expeditious Retreat on?

    If an epic quote is one by a heroic, victorious warrior who just showed more fighting ability than he ever had before, and then taking charge of the situation with more commitment and initiative than he ever had before, then we need to consider this one, from strip #400:

    : Wanna make out?

    Nothing, because you can't cast expeditious retreat on an item, or indeed anything that isn't yourself.

    Um, maybe if you had somehow channeled Expeditious Retreat into an item instead of yourself? Or if you assume that Expeditious Retreat technically includes your outfit, and then give your shoes to someone while it's still in effect.

    I'm certain there is a feat somewhere that let's you cast a personal range spell on someone else.

    5e has Distant Spell metamagic, which lets you cast a spell with the range of Touch to a range of 30 ft. Nothing about personal, though. I don't recall 3.5 even having that much.

    Reach Spell feat lets you convert a touch spell to a ray with a 30-foot range. Or you could always take the ability from Archmage or Hierophant levels....

    As for Personal...I rather doubt there's an official feat (to the extent I can doubt an official feat doesn't exist in a game system where "must have defeated a hippopotamus in single combat" appears as a feat prereq in a first-party book). The whole reason for the game to have a range of personal (instead of using the range of "touch") is so it can't be applied to just anyone (hence why potions, which can be used by anyone, can't contain personal-range spells).
