    Yes and no. Yes, she could deduce a lot of it on her own. But not all of it, and some of it -- specifically that all sorts of magical devices are coming to life, old and new -- may well be important for her to know in maybe only minutes from now. The distinction might not seem to matter but to Magus at least it could be an indication that big trouble is on its way.

    Technically, yes, but I don't think Dan would use this excuse. ... to us. Not that useful to Ashley, especially in her current situation. The previous systems are not completely independent and wandmaker is type of wizard who can use spell by imprinting them to wands. Apparently it IS possible for current wandmaker to put non-working spell into wand in way the wand starts working when the spell starts working. Also, it's possible Kevin is using mix of previous system magic and new system magic. Yes. Again, ability to view auras may not be limited to system, but auras from older system would be unrecognizable. Old magic artifact still giving auras could actually help attract thieves to the facility, although it's possible they only started giving auras after reset. (Magus's comment can be taken either way, it's not like he saw the place before) Well Ashley DID thrown Kevin on him ... but yes, I think her action wasn't as threatening as the magpie's, and also it's possible the golem would give more chances to human than to artifact obviously too stupid to negotiate with.

    We knew Pandora was hundreds of years old, and that the last system change happened before her last willing reset. That would place the reset anywhere between 150 to 350 years before she met Blaike (giving the chance of the system change happening in the first year of her previous self's life as well as the last year, and of course assuming her previous self went exactly 200 years) Could still say the last change was 999 years ago. It might be debatable that 1299 could still be considered hundreds because there aren't multiple thousands yet, though what about 1999? At what point does hundreds change to thousands? Kevin being an experimental wand that never worked before now is odd, the theory of him being created using an outdated system after the change doesn't make sense because how would that even be accomplished if someone had lost the ability to cast spells from an older system. I could understand if Kevin was created moments before the system change so that it wasn't that he never worked at all, but never had the chance to work. But then his knowledge seems recent since he apparently knows what robots are to be able to refer to the magpie as a bird-bot. and the golems aura being unrecognizable suggests Kevin is seeing older magic at work, although maybe we'll find that it is an Uryuom based golem after all and it's aura looks like Grace's. Maybe this is still indicative of influence from the diamond being shattered, I dunno. Also, the golem could still be friendly, that bird bot did attack it first and the golem reacted accordingly, as long as Ashley doesn't act threatening, she should be fine.

    Technically she kicked the soccer ball at the griffin, but yes.

    I am starting to feel just a little more liking for that wand. At least it is giving out useful information now. You are never going to let them forget the time they were caught playing spin-the-bottle with one of your canopic jars, are you.
  8. Main Wed April 25 2018

    Thousands of something is just ten times more than hundreds of something. So depending on the observer's point of view and position on the Hyperbole-Understatement scale, "hundreds" or "thousands" may be referring to the same number. This is one of those times when you really need Grandma to show up and explain to the kiddies exactly what it is they have been using as toys in the attic.

    However, the ones from current system are unlikely to cause troubles. As shown on the magpie, which definitely was not causing any trouble to the golem, being easily crunchable. And if the magpie wouldn't be so stupid, it would already notice LAST PAGE that the golem is too big to fit inside her AND too heavy to carry. As I noted on last page comments. Apparently. The creator likely had no idea that they are blocked by Will of Magic ... ... ... ... vast wisdom. Right. Not sure why Jarvis, but note that it was the golem which weight was commented on. EDIT: Wait, did Dan said hundreds? It's not thousands? YAY new info!
  10. Main Wed April 25 2018

    Dragging Ellen is a chore. I would still question Jarvis about artifact weight, unless, ASHLEY IS NOT AN ARTIFACT, dummy.

    http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2490 Spoiler space. Huh, so artifacts from the previous system are in the minority. And the wand is built during the current system, it just didn't work before tonight. I'm assuming that it's because the creator thought the rules from a previous system applied.

    And cats looks cute and elegant and beautiful ... even the big ones which can and will eat you. And bright color in nature usually indicate poison.

    And you could be right, but the golem is big and not exactly cuddly-looking. On the other hand, cuddly-looking does not guarantee harmlessness.
  14. This Day In History

    April 24 in EGS History: 2003 - Susan reveals that she dyes her hair, and that her full name is Tiffany Susan Pompoms. After looking at the fold-out pinup in an issue of Cat Chicks Magazine, Tedd decides he needs to get some yarn. 2012 - A timer rings signaling that Tedd has been in Grace's form for fifteen hours. 2013 - Sarah refuses to consider the possibility that Elliot felt like a sister to her when in female form. 2014 - While Tedd describes the mechanics of werewolf cards, we're treated to a fantasy sequence of the two of them turning into naked-save-fur anthro werewolves, then back to (now naked) humans. I choose to believe that they both pictured it.

    Ashley threw Kevin at the golem while yelling "Get away from her!". Voltaire thought it was stupid for Ashley to try to save Elliot, but Ashley did save Elliot and she might have just saved Ellen because the golem was distracted long enough for Magpie to go to work. I meant that what the MAGPIE did was stupid. Ashley, well ... I think she's very lucky with her throwing things distraction skills. Although personally I don't think the golem wanted to hurt Ellen.

    It's like throwing things at over powered magical things is her skill.

    I think it might be more that Kevin thought that Ashley must be "too dumb to live" and that thus she was about to get herself killed by having antagonized the golem. After all, she has yet to say anything intelligent to Kevin since he first addressed her. Technically, yes, she didn't say anything intelligent ... she barely said anything ... because Kevin is talking nonstop without break so she CANT say anything without talking over him. That won't change that trying to hit the golem as it obviously did afterwards is stupid move. There is also the matter that official policy was to limit the number of active mages as much as possible, so a tool for aiding potential wizards in Awakening would have been counter to their goals. If left in open, obviously. However, DGB needs trained agents and it may be easier to hire someone with right non-magic skills, motivation and loyalty and awaken him than to hire someone awakened and try to motivate him, teach him other skills and make him loyal. On the other hand, people who really fit working in DGB might really not fit teaching tool like Kevin. ... also good point
  20. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    I guess I'll be getting that. I went to see a weight loss specialist, and one of the things they routinely worry about is sleep apnea. Saw the sleep specialist, and even though I answered No to all of the screening questions except that I snore enough for my sister to notice if we're in the same room, and I occasionally wake up with a dry mouth when my nose is stuffy from allergies....they still want to do a sleep study. So, I get to spend a night with wires and various other stuff and with someone monitoring and possibly watching me. Part of that is an EEG. Time to prove whether it's there and functioning!

    I just had an increase in the rent on my apartment. It comes out to about 75 cents a month. Clearly I am facing utter financial ruin.
  22. Patreon April 21, 2018: Strechies!

    On the one hand, I love the idea, the catly abandon with which Catalina stretches, and the fact that Susan is completely herself, from her appearance to her being turned on by watching. On the other hand, that tail is coming out the wrong place! The tail is a continuation of the spine; if it came out where it's pictured, Catalina's pelvis would have nothing to attach to! I know it can be hard to figure out how to combine clothing with tails, but completely breaking the anatomy just totally ruins any suspension of disbelief. Better to have it emerge from the shorts in the right place with no explanation, or give it its own little "leg", or have it emerge from one of the normal legs of the shorts, or anything else that's actually possible.

    In the case of aforesaid parliamentary members, their work would be sufficient evidence to prove that an EEG from them would be registering a false positive.

    If there were a lot of wands like Kevin, I think it would help limit the number of wizards.

After all, she has yet to say anything intelligent to Kevin since he first addressed her. As for the magpie, "Acquiring" might also mean "acquiring as a target" (i.e. locking onto it with targeting sensors). There is also the matter that official policy was to limit the number of active mages as much as possible, so a tool for aiding potential wizards in Awakening would have been counter to their goals.

    I would still need an EEG to prove that it's functioning,
  27. Story Monday 4-23-2018

    Maybe something like this? No. THOSE were definitely dangerous. I'm thinking Ashley being surrounded by artifacts which mostly wouldn't be dangerous but might look that way, especially if they are all around you and you don't know which one you should pay attention to. Also, half of them would be talking, but given they will be talking over each other it would be impossible to understand them even if they were speaking english.

    It is the only crime that is still punishable by being drawn and quartered. That is, after first being made to watch both aforesaid movies. By the time the execution itself rolls around, most offenders are begging for death. The European Convention of Human Rights keeps squawking about it. But we all know what to say to that.
