  1. Story Wednesday March 21, 2018

    I don't know, in most of the JRPGs I've played the bosses are usually big and imposing. Admittedly that was sometimes obviously artistic license (I don't think Garland or the Pirates were really twice the size of the heroes in the original Final Fantasy) but my point was as Sirleck is drawn here (particularly in the final panel) he doesn't really look like boss material.
  2. Story, Monday March 19, 2018

    Hmm... That might also explain how Sirleck is able to spend most of his time on another plane without being constantly attacked by Immortals: his plane is one that few if any Immortals use. Though that does raise the question of how Magus was able to find him so easily - as well as how Magus was able to interact with both Panrora and Helen & Demetrius. If Magus had the ability to shift between different planes (but not the physical one for some reason) I would have expected that ability to come up.
  3. Story Wednesday March 21, 2018

    It's confirmed, Ellen was able to fight back because she's just that awesome. Er, I mean because she was born from magic. (And yes technically it's just speculation in-comic, but the commentary implies she's right about the "born from magic" idea.) Meanwhile, Sirleck looks even more creepy than usual in the last two panels, but a lot less imposing. Seen from that angle, he looks like the sort of JRPG monster you can beat in two or three turns at most if you're the proper level for the area. ...Which is rather appropriate since I expect Magus is about to trounce him.
  4. Story, Monday March 19, 2018

    When Ellen zapped the Goo it merely stunned it, and I'm pretty sure it was said somewhere that the same thing would happen with anything not humanoid enough. I suspect that Sirleck's form is too inhuman, and the beam would just stun him. Even if he was transformed, the FV5 beam does not alter base forms, it just temporarily enchants humans (Vladia didn't turn back because she's a Seyunolu), so I would assume he'd still be an aberration, he'd just temporarily look human. (At least I hope he would look human; if it just gave him arms, legs, and the FV5 hair and proportions, he would probably look even more disturbing than he does in his normal state.)
  5. Questions for Q&A 8

    While it would be nice, last names are not required to be an EGS main character. After all, it was many years before we learned Sarah's last name.

    That depends on if it has fur on it.
  7. NP Monday Mar 19, 2018

    So I wasn't entirely convinced that the wand could cause any transformation from the game, but there's a poll up now on Patreon about the upcoming strip(s), and in the description Dan says outright, "If a form was possible in the game, she can now make it happen using that wand." I guess that answers the last of my questions about this strip (other than "How exactly did Hanma manage to get so confused about human culture?", but that's more of a rhetorical question).
  8. NP Monday Mar 19, 2018

    That is the impression I had immediately after reading the comic, but then in the Patreon commentary Dan was talking about clothing with Charisma boosts, and I started to wonder if maybe the crown gave the wearer a magical charisma boost without being so powerful as to interfere with free will. One of these days I have to start following EGS on Reddit.

    http://www.egscomics.com/egsnp.php?id=746 This comic raises more questions than it answers. Like, does Catalina have access to the entire deck, or just certain cards (and if so which ones)? And does the crown actually have some sort of magical affect on others (probably making people more likely to obey Catalina without forcing them to), or is Hanma just that confused about crowns and royalty? I mean, you've got it almost backwards, Hanma. Royalty don't wear crowns because the power crowns give them, Royalty wear crowns because the power of being royal means no one is going to tell them not to wear their fancy jeweled headgear. ...Meanwhile, the question of how long the others are stuck with the lifeguard forms is put off for another day.
  10. Story, Monday March 19, 2018

    Wild theory: Body snatching monsters (not necessarily Aberrations) are a common enough danger in the Second Life universe that children are taught some sort of mental discipline that allows them to fight back. The jacket is the same shape as far as I can tell. The shades of gray are a bit different, but I think different lighting in the mental battlefield and/or artistic license could account for that. (As an argument for artistic license, note that SirleckEllen's jacket is yet another shade of gray.) Back in Squirrel Prophet, Disco Wizard speaking on behalf of Will of Magic that "Species with magic woven into their very nature, such as Uryuoms, aren't at risk of suddenly not being able to change forms." Granted this was in reference to the full Magic Change rather than the minimal one we got, but I don't see why the minimal change would have more of an effect on Uryuoms and Seyunolus than the full change. I thought there was a more definitive statement somewhere that Uryuoms wouldn't be affected period, but I can't find it, so I could have just been mis-remembering Disco Wizard's statement. At any rate, I guess Immortals (and possibly transforming Aberrations, depending on how much magic is a part of them) will still be able to transform, but whether magic works exactly the same for them is still up in the air. Finally, unless it was stated somewhere outright that human magical potential cannot be passed down through part-Uryuom lines, I would assume they would be (even without the change in magic). After all, while the Q&A7 said that it would be hard for Grace to learn magic, it also said it was possible.

    While I love the fact that Ellen is fighting back, I hope Dan has a good explanation for why she is able to when none of Sirleck's previous hosts apparently could. The most likely possibilities in my mind are that it has to do with either her status as a Dewitchery Duplicate, or the change in magic. Another possibility is she has some spell not covered in the Ellen Demo which could help. Edit: Actually, given what we know about the change in magic it seems unlikely it would have an effect on Ellen or Sirleck, unless maybe Sirleck was somehow using his own magic defenses to subdue his victims. I'm not going to totally abandon the idea until we know for sure, but it seems a lot less likely than I initially thought. The jacket looks the same to me. The "taller" and "no sign of breasts" might be due to Ellen's mental image / astral form not matching her physical form, but more likely it's just the camera angle and the way they're "standing" (their arms and SirleckEllen's torso are in the way of most of the area where we could see signs of her breasts, and the hold Ellen has on Sirleck would seem to be responsible for SirleckEllen's head being slightly lower than Ellen's; also both SpiritEllen and SirleckEllen are larger than the image on the right of Ellen's body, so we can't judge height by comparing them to Ellen's body). It's been stated before that the change in magic wouldn't affect Uryuoms. I don't remember if the way it was stated would rule out changes for Seyunolus or Immortals; at the very least I doubt the change would affect how Seyunolus use Uryuom "magic".
  12. Pandora's Aberration Apocalypse

    1. The attack was on the physical plane, Sirleck was not. 2. Several miles from each Immortal. Apparently there are a lot of Immortals, spread out across much of the world.
  13. Story Friday March 16, 2018

    You forgot Arthur J Arthur. Also, I thought I remembered one of the Aberrations being a wizard, but I don't remember which one and I don't have time to look it up right now.

    http://www.egscomics.com/egsnp.php?id=745 So much for my idea they'd all keep their forms. At least this implies the final form will last more than a few moments - but how long? I'm still thinking somewhere between an hour and a day. As for the crown and scepter, my current best guess is (as others have suggested) that they allows Catalina to change the others (and maybe herself) to different forms from the game (perhaps as a precaution in case the winner wasn't happy with having the final form applied to all).
  15. Story Friday March 16, 2018

    In my scenario where the only curse the Diamond is "aware of" is Elliot's changed hair color, Magus would gain the ability to shoot a TF beam that turns the subject's hair blonde. (Or, if somehow missed the alterations Magus made to Ellen's TF beam, it might give him his own FV5 beam.)
