  1. Story, Monday November 20, 2017

    Well, I do care about tabletop RPGs, but finding time has been problematic. I started with D&D (yes, I am that old), mostly played AD&D and some Star Frontiers (TSR's odd foray in sci-fi) and a few odd games here and there. I also occasionally ran a rules free anything goes game (it ran like a combo of X-Files and Scooby Doo). Oddly enough, I have four kids, and sometimes, (when screen time is over) they will sit around and roleplay in a rules free mode (one kid guides the story and determines what is allowed and what isn't). It's cool to watch. That would be hilarious. He avoids the Universe Difference Issue (magics works differently here) by carrying his preset spells, but thinks he just has "to do that thing" to relearn them, like AD&D clerics praying for spells (and I am assuming since he hasn't panicked, relearning doesn't require access to a spellbook like AD&D mages), then "Uh oh, why can't I relearn my spells?!" All this time claiming to be a much stronger mage and laid low by landing in a universe with a different rule set. Honestly, I do hope he is limited in some way by being in a different universe, otherwise I could envision Invasions from Alternate Universes Where Magic Is More Bad-Ass. Since Elliot's universe seems to be more of a Mana Meter, perhaps Magus will find it harder to replenish his Mana, or that the level of effects he expect require more Mana.
  2. Story, Monday November 20, 2017

    No, I wasn't saying it doesn't make sense. For example, it just occurs to me that there may be other conditions for reset in Magus' universe such that a seer is required to rediscover the rules. Perhaps if the usage of Magic becomes too unbalanced in some other way? Well, what if their dialog wasn't just for dramatic effect. What if Magus believes that Terra's potential is being wasted. Perhaps in Magus' universe, the equivalent of Seers have different set of abilities that let them do the same thing, relearn magic. Seers might be just as rare or effectively rare (hard to find) as in our universe. Maybe Seers in Magus' universe can get spells, making their seer abilities easy to overlook.
  3. Story, Monday November 20, 2017

    Interesting thought. I presume that Magus' universe might have Immortals, but they might be constrained by their set of non-interference rules. Still, Voltaire or AU-Voltaire could have manipulated an enemy of Magus to commit the sabotage. Still, if Terra were like Tedd and was a seer, then removing Magus might traumatize Terra, but to what purpose? In Elliot's universe, Magic wants to be scarce and is threatening to reset. Voltaire wants Tedd unable to perform some function of being a seer so he impose his own rules.

    My wife and I, years ago, were driving through our neighborhood, which I would have considered urban and not the suburbs, when I stopped for a raccoon that was crossing the road. It stopped, looked at us, and I swear it looked like it nodded at us, then walked on, not hurrying at all. Sitting on it's haunches, it looked as tall as our truck's tires. Nope, wasn't going to run over Mr. Grampa Badass Raccoon.
  5. Story, Friday November 17, 2017

    I suppose it is the case that for anything requiring his host to interact physically with something, Sirleck must use the host's physical skills and associated learned reactions, otherwise the movements wouldn't be natural. I guess this also means that he gets access to Ellen's martial arts as well. Still, makes me wonder if in certain situations, Ellen might actually fight against Sirleck's control. If I were Sirleck, I wouldn't bet on winning a fight against Nanase in Ellen's body.

    Trés bien, merci beaucoup! (And that is about all I remember from College French)
  7. Story, Wednesday November 8, 2017

    You want Tedd to unravel the basic tenets behind reality? And he has wand making ability? "Now this I call my Kingmaker Wand."
  8. Story, Wednesday November 8, 2017

    I worried that this might what is happening; do we know of any long-term consequences for Sirleck possession? I was worried that Sirleck possessing you was equivalent to being killed (I have read of Body Jumpers in other media that worked this way), but that seems a little dark for this comic. I suppose since this is happening now, that Sirleck's plan to keep the Immortals otherwise occupied by going after Raven is and causing Chaos and Destruction is happening as we speak? I was also trying to come up with a plausible scenario for why Ellen would suddenly zap Elliot, and I considered someone capturing and threatening Nanase, but that doesn't seem like something Ellen would just go along with.
  9. Story Friday August 18, 2017

    I don't think she knows; suspects, though, or reasoned out it would be very likely using that keen Immortal mind (as you said)? I think so. Pandora is aware of Sirleck, and Magus has few options. I suppose from that, she might suspect that the Moperville Scoobies would intersect with Sirleck/Magus at some point without being aware of the Gathering Storm of Aberrations. Voltaire she knows as an Immortal enemy in the general sense without knowing who he is and what he wants. I wonder how much of his plan she could deduce by investigating the events that happened if she were in Near-Psychic/NonEmpathy mode versus the way she is now? Though her current mindset is preferable in so many ways, it hinders her ability to fight her family's enemies. Also, sheesh, she is very scary right now.
  10. Story Monday August 14, 2017

    Oh my gosh. Okay, thank you. I was searching and trying to make sense of it and came up with some crazy results , like a fisherman in Murmansk posting pictures of demonic fish and non-euclidean geometry being equated to evil in The Brothers Karamazov (odd that Russian connection). And of course I never even noticed the spelling mistake which would have made the joke more obvious. Thankfully I can laugh at myself over and learning interesting if odd things. Thanks again!
  11. Story Monday August 14, 2017

    Okay, I've searched, but I am getting nowhere (at least conclusively). Please explain your reference to Demon fishermen and the geometry of evil. Then I can stop thinking about it. Obsessive? Who's obsessive.
  12. Story Wednesday August 16th, 2017

    I wonder if she will warn anyone about her reset or the nature of it. Part of me thinks, Yes, obviously so, but another wonders if maybe she wouldn't or wouldn't let anyone know that she is attempting something new, so that they wouldn't worry about her or try to talk her out of it. Hmmm....
  13. Story Wednesday August 16th, 2017

    So now you have me imagining the existence of an Immortal who has meticulously passed along nested, linked, indexed and fulltext searchable Memory Palace of ALL his/her previous incarnations. This Immortal also has a love of technology and has created an artifact that will exist across incarnations and is able to store an Immortals memories as a backup in case of a botched reset. This Immortal goes by the name of Knuth.
  14. Story Wednesday August 16th, 2017

    Perhaps one of the reasons Pandora has not reset is because of Blaike's influence on her. Perhaps she fears if she resets she will lose that influence; she would lose touch with her empathy and humanity.
  15. Story Wednesday August 16th, 2017

    Ooh, this is getting exciting though. Can't see Pandora resetting before tonight; too much to do, including talk to Adrian, teach him how to defuse the dam, mentor Sara (or would she arrange a different mentor, like Adrian, so she can reset before too long), as well as figuring out the actual reset process. But in the midst of that, trying to stay focused on this new goal when a battle breaks out threatening Adrian and the rest of the Scoobies. Hoo boy, who's going to blow up tonight? Pandora? Lord Protector Tedd? Elliot and Ellen in a Wonder Twin Powers moment? Break out the popcorn!
