    Someone tweeted Dan asking if he used the plot of Pirates of the Caribbean 2, Dan said he'd seen it the movie, but didn't recall that part. I guess he subconsciously used that thinking he thought up something original.

    So a couple of kids can think up a better story than what the big studios actually produce? Is anyone surprised?
  4. Story Fridayday November 16, 2018

    I don't think there is SINGLE movie like that, however it reminds me Lara Croft and her navigation orb, the Golden Compass and also Jack Sparrow had compass like that ... also, yes, major movies are rarely as good as what can people like Sarah (or Dan) plan ... pity Dan can't turn EGS into series with budget somewhere around Game of Thrones one ...
  5. http://egscomics.com/comic/tsos-03 Almost as good a source of things to talk about on a first date as a good movie. I've learned to trust Dan to make "uneventful" setup comics worthwhile later, so I'll suspend judgement.

    This is a symptom of Nanase's recent geckofication. Geckos are effectively red-blue colour blind. So the frequently red-haired Nanase used the wrong dye without realizing it. Wait ... red-blue? HOW? I though they are red-green colorblind, but I now see it said red-blue in the NP strip as well ... (Searching internet, I'm not sure they are colorblind at all. Although there may not be definitive answer due to lack of research ...)

    ... did we already knew trainer!Nanase has blue hair? ... HAD she blue hair before choosing water or did she changed her hair color to match?
  10. Story Wednesday November 14, 2018

    Maybe some of the extra curricular classes Adrian gave Edward and Noriko involved the history of Noriko's family, and that's what made her become obsessed with continuing the family busness, which included ensuring the bloodline remains strong. Yeah, I'm assuming that Adrian would know about Noriko's family, he's probably lived long enough to have heard of some of their exploits as they happened, or there was written works about them and other similar families that he read like he had learned about Abraham. While possible, I would be very surprised if Noriko didn't knew her family history before Adrian's classes. Sure, Nanase didn't know it until recently, but her mother was actively hiding it from her ...
  11. http://egscomics.com/sketchbook/2018-039 I really like the colors here. Even the simple backgrounds are enhanced by color. Speaking of which, yay for starburst backgrounds in panels one and three, and yay for simple gradient background in panel two!
  12. This Day In History

    On November 15 in History: 459 - Mayan king of Palenque, B'utz Aj Sak Chiik, is born. He is also known as Manik, so I'm going to go ahead and call him that. 565 - Justin II succeeds as Byzantine Emperor his uncle Justinian I, who had succeeded his own uncle Justin I, this perpetuating the eternal monarchical tradition of being completely unimaginative when it comes to names. 655 - Oswiu of Northumbria defeats Penda of Mercia at the Battle of the Winwæd, putting an end to pagan kingdoms in the British Isles for good. "You don't say," remark the vikings. 1532 - Incan emperor Atahualpa is met by some weird-looking foreign guy named Hernando de Soto outside the city of Cajamarca. They arrange a more formal meeting with de Soto's boss, Pizarro, in the city plaza for the following day. If he plays his cards right, there's a lot he and his empire can gain from this. 1533 - Francisco Pizarro - why does that name ring a bell? - shows up in the Incan capital, Cuzco. Wonder what he wants. 1777 - The Continental Congress approves the Articles of Confederation, the most flawless and foolproof method for governing a burgeoning republic ever devised. 1864 - William Tecumseh Sherman sets out for the beach with 60,000 of his friends. 1882 - Future U.S. Supreme Court justice and co-founder of the ACLU Felix Frankfurter is born. Upon hearing he has a son, his excited father exclaims, "Hot dog!" 1889 - Brazil's Emperor Pedro II is replaced with what will become the country's most preferred form of government, the military coup. 1920 - The first assembly of the League of Nations takes place in Geneva on the same day that the Free City of Danzig is established. They're both going to be around for a really long time, so we want to make sure we do things right. 1979 - A package from Ted Kaczynski begins smoking on a flight from Chicago to D.C., forcing it to land. Wait for it... 1983 - The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus declares itself independent. Only Turkey agrees. Weird. 1985 - A package from Ted Kaczynski explodes and injures a research assistant at the University of Michigan, allowing the FBI to add "un" to his coded designation upgrading it from the otherwise unimaginative "A bomber". 1990 - The People's Republic of Bulgaria is replaced by the Actual Republic of Bulgaria. 2012 - Winnie the Pooh becomes General Secretary of China's Communist Party.

    I should have mentioned that I chose the no boobs option as well, I think Nanase still looks sexy there as well, and we're not really a minority since at the moment the minority seems to be the "same size boobs" option and though interestingly enough, the higher percentage is for "smaller boobs" rather than larger. I dunno if that means they think Nanase looks weird flat chested, or they just think that anthro female lizards should still have some sort of noticeable chest to identify them as female.
  15. NP, Wednesday November 14, 2018

    Red and green are very close in spectrum. Humans are optimized to distinguish between them because blood is red and leaves are green, but for Geckos the UV is apparently more important. So yes, I would conclude that the pattern on walls is red-green and likely deliberately use shades which make it invisible for people under Gecko transformation. Question is: does she still see Sarah's blue clothes as being blue? Dan's got a poll going that might change things. I suppose the fact that I consider logical correctness of lizards not having mammalian glands to be more important than how sexy Nanase looks as lizard likely also puts me in minority. (Also, yes, she still looks sexy to me.)
  16. Story Wednesday November 14, 2018

    I'm not sure how long that's been a thing, but I've definitely noticed it before. (Incidentally, I checked her earliest appearances; we see her fangs a couple of times during dramatic situations, but otherwise we usually don't see her teeth - or anyone else's - at all back then.) I would say that not seeing her teeth is most likely reason to not seeing if her fangs are extended. Raven blames himself for Noriko choosing her career over her family, but I believe he is overestimating his role in the matter. I have a hard time envisioning a scenario true to what we know of his character where Raven's influence over her was so powerful that the choice to abandon her family wasn't ultimately hers. Furthermore, we know Noriko and Mrs. Kitsune are part of a long line of monster hunters, and that she was severely disappointed in Tedd's seeming lack of magic; given these facts I can't help but think a large part of her motivation for divorcing Edward was a desire to have a child she could pass the tradition on to. ... also good point. While both Edward and Raven blames Raven for it, it's definitely possible it would happen even without him. (On the other hand, note that Noriko was disappointed in Tedd's seeming lack of magic AFTER Raven was teaching her.)

    And now she sells insurance Forgot to mention that while geckos do have very good vision overall, especially in low light, they are effectively red-blue colour blind. In humans, red-green colour blindness is not unknown. More common in males than females. Could the walls now be coloured red with only subtle changes in shade and texture creating the patterns Sarah mentioned? If so, Nanase would be effectively colour blind using her Lizard eyes. Still, it has been a long time since Amanda announced that "Lizards are Cool". We are long overdue for conformation.
  19. NP, Wednesday November 14, 2018

    I find it rather impressive how this form manages to look feminine while having a flat chest. I expect I'm in the minority, but I think it's a good look. (In fact, personally I like this form better than FV5 or any of the other big-breasted transformations Dan's drawn in the past.)
  20. NP, Wednesday November 14, 2018

    Geckos, by the way, have much better color vision than ours - but not the same as ours. In our retinas we have rods for black-and-white vision, including in very dim light, and cones for color vision but only in reasonably good light. Gecko retinas have only cones, but their cones are more than twice as light-sensitive as our rods (which are about 100 times as sensitive as our cones). And instead of having r-g-b cones, they have uv-g-b cones. So, Dan is definitely correct that Nanase losing color vision is something HE added.

    Well, lizards shouldn't have mammalian glands, obviously ... Definitely. And most importantly, it keeps the "two are needed to solve the challenges" theme running. BTW, note that WE are effectively color blind too, with the comics in grayscale ...
  23. Story Wednesday November 14, 2018

    Soooo, how often Grace pretended she didn't meant to tear her clothes? I mean, it's fun fantasy, but I suspect she never did it because she doesn't want to damage them ... now, slipping out of clothes, maybe ... And "no idea"? ... Does it mean they didn't realized it happened to all chimeras and uryuoms? I mean, that wouldn't exactly explain it, but it seems like something worth mentioning ... and it might help them realize it's because older magic systems started to work. Grace saw Sarah's reaction when Tedd told her about Pandora being reset (and that she successfully refreshed and thus would remember Sarah). Exactly. And it's not like she would have anything new to talk about, so not reminding it makes sense. Did she? I mean, what is the time frame here? Maybe it didn't happened yet ... (Note that Sarah had Adrian's phone from Grace, so it can't be that much surprise). I think Edward is professional enough to directly say "I don't like him, but he's good and it's safe to talk with him". Assuming they ask him, of course. Because it seems more likely they keep it secret ... ... he might not even object to THAT, as long as it's not specifically Tedd (or Grace) who is being taught ... like, he might warn them to be sure if they really want that or something, but it's not like if Adrian teaching led to dark side, it's just that specifically in case of Edward and Noriko it cost them their relationship. Not sure now is best time for that, but eventually yes. And Sarah is likely going to mention either Tedd or Grace in her conversation to explain where she got his number ...
  24. http://egscomics.com/egsnp/nanasecraft-14 And Sarah becomes the largest breasted girl in the room. Anyway, Nanase being colorblind is a challenge, obvious solution is Sarah needs to guide where Nanase puts her hands and feet. Will it be easier said than done though?

    Grace saw Sarah's reaction when Tedd told her about Pandora being reset (and that she successfully refreshed and thus would remember Sarah). What Grace probably doesn't know yet, is that Sarah met with Adrian about it. I'd be curious if Tedd would object to Sarah doing that though, I mean, he knows Adrian and Edward aren't on good terms, but I don't think Edward is very concerned by the fact that Adrian is teaching the MSHS side of the main eight (as long as Adrian doesn't try teaching them like he did with Edward and Noriko that is). Tedd might want to meet Adrian after finding out Adrian's his godfather. I do hope that Sarah had mentioned Tedd to Adrian during their conversation though.
  27. Story Wednesday November 14, 2018

    Gee, Grace is worried about telling Sarah about Pandora. That's interesting, since Sarah actually knows Pandora, whereas Grace has never met her.
  28. Story Wednesday November 14, 2018

    http://egscomics.com/comic/tsos-02 Grace: So how was your "Not Date"? Sarah: My...Oh! It was good! And thus ends the Secret of Sam. Grace, Sarah has already talked to Adrian Raven about Pandora. She will need to talk about PCR with you and the rest of the usual suspects soon enough. And Sarah is resilient and insightful. You don't need to treat her as if she is carrying raw eggs in a crystal basket. Nearly forgot to ask. Has Grace always kept her fangs extended in Squirrel-Girl form? This seems new.
