Especially cool was the set-up. We were told back when he first showed up that

the Cleric had prepared Remove Curse that day, and that he could use it to treat Belkar

. Rich really knows how to set his ducks in a row. :)

 

Can't wait to see what's next.

 

I especially liked the passcode for Remove Curse.

Open square braket, "SPOILER", close braket. Whatever you wanna say. Open square braket, "/SPOILER", close braket.

 

without the quotes, of course. ;)

Maybe Belkar will realize he doesn't have to be Evil to be a Sexy Shoeless God of War -- or to be the @ss he usually is.

 

"Hey, Sweeney Toddette..." :lol:

 

And I loved the passcode.

It doesn't have to be in uppercase -- lowercase works fine.

I didn't know that spell needed a passcode. I thought you just cast it and *poof* problem solved.

 

the Passcode if the control for the curse, not for the spell

According to the cleric back in OOTS # 602:

 

This particular curse requires a specific password to be spoken in order to be dispelled.

I don't see what all the Roy-less fuss is all about. It's pretty clear that his player is doing Reserve Duty in Iraq or something and the GM is just keeping his place warm.

 

Same as the whole Belkar Saga is the GM saying "The Curse was a Warning and stabbing the Oracle was the final straw." He's giving the player every chance to shape up or ship out.

 

Lots of OotS things make more sense when viewed through the meta-lens.

yea, but since i'm not playing in the game and only reading the story, all this sidetracking and the drawing out of an obviously inevitable event is getting really obnoxious. its the reason a good GM and a good writer are not always (or even often) the same person.

oh, i am glad he's sharing, and i have had LOADS of laughs from the strips. i think its about time for me to be jumping of the train if this is the direction he is going to continue in. i wouldn't want him to change directions, so much as i wish he would, if that makes sense. in other words, it would make me happy if he would start bringing everything back together now, but i won't demand it. i'll just appreciate what he's given me and go on.

 

i'm REALLY hoping it doesn't come down to that though. i really like so many of the characters, and i liked the story he was telling, back when was telling it. character development has been fun, but its time to get on with it.

I'd take the fact that even the characters are beginning to comment on the separation and heavy themes as a sign that this arc is wrapping up.

#611 is up.

 

 

Wait, did I say "path"? I mean a five-lane blacktop highway with a two-lane service road. And I'm packin' a fist full of tokens and a radar detector.

is glad people still are' date=' really. i'd hate to see the fan base dry up, really, it has had so much good stuff. we'll see.[/quote']I think with the last couple of episodes Rich Burlew is starting to put everyone back together again. I don't think it'll be too much longer before the OotS is reunited (after a few rescues and resurrections, of course). :)
