The fact that it is funny is surprising? Yeah, I suppose so. A webcomic built on stick figures doesn't seem like it'd be entertaining for very long.

I theorize that it's been successful because it's easier to draw, so he can update it more often that other comics, and have an actual consistent story line that people sort of remember.

Am I thinking about this too much? :x-eyed:

BigRedRod

The art style didn't put me off. The subject matter did. I quite like his art for some reason.

It is just very rare to read something related to roleplaying that actually makes me laugh rather than cringe.

The art has grown on me, but I didn't like it at first. His sense of humor seems to be almost universally enjoyed, however. Even my wife (who can't tell a d8 from a d12, much less anything else about RPGs) occasionally reads over my shoulder and giggles.

I love OotS as well, and the fact that he can seriously/comedically intersperse RPG references among a serious discussion in the comic is what I love. Story, funny vector stick figure art that makes it a breeze to update, and characters with dynamic personalities... ahhhhhh. ^^

http://j00.be/oh.snap.gif indeed!

LotR was just poorly written in my opinion, I wish Tolkien had hired a writer as the story was pretty influential and it is a shame that so many people punish themselves by reading the whole thing just so they can say they have (like I did).

Gralhruk
19th of April, 2006, 02:30
Forgetting about writing style for a moment, I think one of the best things about LotR is the depth of the setting. When I read it, I find myself believing that Middle Earth is a real place rather than just something fictional.

treehouse
19th of April, 2006, 02:30
BRR: I actually agree with you, much to the chagrin of many of my geeky friends. LotR reads like a dry history book, not a novel (which it supposedly is). I'm more interested in its positive influence on fantasy as a serious genre than as something that'd I'd ever actually pick up and read again.

The Alcotroll
19th of April, 2006, 03:04

Hmm... if I'm just reading it because I feel like it, and not because "Oh, sure, I've read LotR!", and take the time to understand what he's saying, then I like it.

For the same reason I like Lovecraft, or Hawthorne.

Semi-archaic, "boring" writing styles are sort of fun, if I have the time to really get into them.


Although, man that thing was boring when I was trying to "get through it" during HS.

I honestly found LotR rather dry as well. I have yet to actually finish past the second book of The Two Towers, despite ownership of it for years. And strange thing is, I can typically enjoy reading dry history.

Man, this is like a Geeky Dislikers of LotR Anonymous.

Levii
19th of April, 2006, 14:06
I'm in aggreement with all of you guys. LOTR is a very dry read and kind of involves a period of real motivation and solitude to enjoy it. Tolkin was great when it came to creating a believable world as well as being a true historian. Problem is, many historians, (an scientists) know absolutely nothing about writing an enjoyable piece. Be it a novel or an article, they tend to lack in the realm of holding the interest of people that don't think like themselves. Not to say there aren't exceptions, Tolkin's just not one of them.
But, I'm rambling... it's the anthropology student as well as the suppressed writer in me wanting to burst forth. ;)

DreamingAloud212: Hi. I realise this is pretty random, but for some reason I have you on my contact list. You're in a category that identifies you as someone I know from the Jade / Exalted chat, but your screen name doesn't ring any bells. I was just wondering who you are, if you don't mind telling me - it's been bugging me for ages!
itches: Well that's strange

DreamingAloud212: Really? None at all? That's weird.

There is no perfect one out there for you. That's the bad news. The good news is that there is no perfect one out there for you.

Everyone will have personality clashes, every relationship has conflicts. There are people out there who you will be able to connect with on a deep level, deeper the most people. You may even find a one who you form a connection to that is deeper and more satisfying then others, but even this connection won't be perfect. That's also the good news; it's the parts where you're not well suited for each other that make you appreciate the things that you do mesh well with.

Also there is no 'one' perfect person out there for you. If that was how the system worked, imagine what would happen if that perfect one for you got hit by a bus before the pair of you hooked up. As there is no single person out there the chances of you finding someone who you can connect with and be acceptably happy with are much greater. Hell, the chances of you finding someone who will make you ecstatically happy for the rest of your life are also much greater.

There is no perfect one out there for you. Make sense?

If a government wants to prevent something it is well within their reach.

i.e. Something like 2500 years ago a great marketplace in China (I believe) was being plagued with muggings. Shoppers were scared and trade started to suffer. The emporer decided he'd had enough and iss the following decree.

Any person caught by the guards that is supected of a mugging will be beheaded on the spot, no trial, no jury, finito...

There hasn't been a single mugging since then...

Now imagine how many people could be saved each year if that was the penalty for Driving While Intoxicated for instance. I think the government makes too much money by allowing such behavior to continue.

However, I think the "that is supected of a mugging" part is a little... extreme.

"Oh yeah. He beat me up every day."

Itches: but this one sucks
Itches: sucks is being too kind
Simon: right
Itches: i'm thinking about burning the books so no one need suffer from reading them again
Simon: hmmm, sounds good
Itches: the basic plot of the trilogy
Itches: The first book is fairly normal, political shit, armies, some fighting and a threat that will end the world!
Itches: then the world ends
Simon: of course
Itches: the second book is a post apocalyptic world where everyone is dieing and people are fucking animals and the animals can apparently talk now
Itches: i'm not making any of this up
Simon: riiiight
Itches: but the third book, oh the third book is where things really fall apart
Simon: uhuh
Itches: the third book is where they reveal the incest!
Itches: but it gets worse
Simon: uh
Itches: turns out the world wasn't actually destroyed after all, and the evil things which could destroy people by farting now loose fist fights!
Simon: whuh---what!?
Itches: yes, they loose fist fights to giant polar bears
Simon: of...of course
Itches: then we end up with some fucked up version of Eddings fantasy, where there are two sides equally matched and formal to each other and destined to "compete to decide who was the winner"
Itches: Eddings does it well, this book doesn't and IT CAME FROM NOWHERE!
Itches: last book the world was destroyed!
Simon: ......yeah...i'm good with the burning
Itches: but wait, i havn't gotten to the best part yet!
Simon: ok
Itches: after all of this crap, the world being destroyed, incest, bestiality, the eddings crap
Itches: Jesus comes along and saves the day
Simon: wait.....*head melts*
Itches: that's how the book ends, Jesus comes and takes everyone to heaven
Simon: oh, so its a rapture story
Itches: no
Itches: The jesus thing comes out of no where
Simon: oh,
Itches: it's a fucking fantasy novel
Itches: there are gods!
Itches: the previous book dealt with them
Simon: yes, yes
Itches: oh, and incest is apparently alright in heaven
Itches: it's the twist to end all twists!
Simon: oh, yeah, burning
Itches: can you feel the brain fire from just hearing me tell you about it?
Itches: I read the bloody thing!
Simon: yes, lets get you a nice warm room to escape it all

A first-grade teacher, Ms Neelam (Age 28) was having trouble with one of her students the teacher asked, "Boy, what is your problem?"

Boy answered, "I'm too smart for the first-grade. My sister is in the third-grade and I'm smarter than she is! I think I should be in the third-grade too!"

Ms Neelam had enough. She took Boy to the principal's office.

While Boy waited in the outer office, the teacher explained to the principal what the situation was. The principal told Ms Neelam he would give the boy a test and if he failed to answer any of his questions he was to go back to the first-grade and behave. She agreed.

Boy was brought in and the conditions were explained to him and he agreed to take the test.

Principal: "What is 3 x 3?"

Boy.: "9!”

Principal: "What is 6 x 6?"

Boy.: "36!”

And so it went with every question the principal thought a third-grade should know. The principal looks at Ms Neelam and tells her, "I think Boy. can go to the third-grade."

Ms Neelam says to the principal, "I have some of my own questions. Can I ask him?" The principal and boy both agree.

Ms Neelam asks, "What does a cow have four of that I have only two of?

Boy.: after a moment "Legs."

Ms Nee lam: "What is in your pants that you have but I do not have?"

Boy.: "Pockets."

Ms Neelam: What starts with a C and ends with a T; is hairy, oval, delicious, and contains thin whitish liquid?

Boy.: Coconut

Ms Neelam: What goes in hard and pink then comes out soft and sticky?

The principal's eyes open really wide and before he could stop the answer, Boy was taking charge.

Boy.: Bubblegum

Ms Neelam: What does a man do standing up, a woman does sitting down and a dog does on three leg s? The principal's eyes open really wide and before he could stop the answer!

Boy.: Shake hands

Ms Neelam: Now I will ask some "Who am I" sort of questions, okay?

Boy.: Yep.

Ms Neelam: You stick your poles inside me. You tie me down to get me up. I get wet before you do.

Boy.: Tent

Ms Neelam: A finger goes in me. You fiddle with me when you're bored. The best man always has me first. The Principal was looking restless, a bit tense and took one large Patiala Vodka peg.

Boy.: Wedding Ring

Ms Neelam: I come in many sizes. When I'm not well, I drip. When you blow me, you feel good.

Boy.: Nose

Ms Neelam: I have a stiff shaft. My tip penetrates. I come with a quiver.

Boy.: Arrow

Ms Neelam: What word starts with an 'F' and ends in 'K' that means lot of heat and excitement?

Boy.: Firetruck

Ms Neelam: What word starts with an 'F' and ends in 'K' & if u don't get it u have to use your hand.

Boy.: Fork

Ms Neelam: What is it that all men have one of it's longer on some men than on others, the pope doesn't use his and a man gives it to his wife after they're married?

Boy.: SURNAME

Ms Neelam: What part of the man has no bone but has muscles, has lots of veins, like pumping, & is responsible for making love?

Boy.: HEART.

The principal breathed a sigh of relief and said to the teacher, "Send this Boy to College, I got the last ten questions wrong myself!"

A long, long time ago
I can still remember
how that cookin' used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my chance
that I could make those scorpion pies
and maybe, people'd, be happy for a while

But february made me shiver
With every poison vial I'd deliver.
Bad news on the desert wind;
I couldnt take one more sin.
I cant remember if I cried
When I burned about his scorpion hide,
But something torched it deep inside
The day the krenshar died.

So Bye, bye Miss Scorpion Pie
drove my horde to the ford but the ford was dry
an them good ol' boys were eaten camel and cat
singin this will be the day that I die,
this will be the day that I die.

Did you write the book of allips,
and do you have faith in ships ashore,
If the emporer tells you so?
Do you believe in fighting trolls,
Can clerics save your mortal soul,
And can we beat them on the whole?

Well I know that you're on a mission
cuz we're all playing the 3.5 edition
We all are in this jungle,
and hope the villagers aren't fungal.
I was a lonely elven wizard
With a spellbook and little cat,
At least we aren't in a blizzard,
The day the krenshar died.

I started singin,
So Bye, bye Miss Scorpion Pie
drove my horde to the ford but the ford was dry
an them good ol' boys were eaten camel and cat
singin this will be the day that I die,
this will be the day that I die.

Now for several months we were at sea
And my ship sank but I'm still walkin' free
And that's just how it's supposed to be
When the Druid got lost in the wild,
With someone who is quite riled,
And with a half orc who was quite mild.

Oh, and when a party saw a ravine,
Some insects came out who were quite obscene
The dwarf lost all his wisdom,
But not in his own kingdom.
And while Orestes wrote his book of knowledge
Uthnaruil planned his magic college
And Caelkenmah could not acknowledge
The day the krenshar died.

We were singing,
So Bye, bye Miss Scorpion Pie
drove my horde to the ford but the ford was dry
an them good ol' boys were eaten camel and cat
singin this will be the day that I die,
this will be the day that I die.

Helter skelter in a jungle swelter.
The birds flew off from an undead scorcher,
30' feet away and flyin' fast.
It left us foul out of the graveyard.
The players forgot to get a bard,
With the DM on the sidelines laughing hard.

Now the rest time air was sweet perfume
While the wizards prepared some arcane spells.
We all got up to journey,
Oh, but we want to have a tourney!
`cause the players tried to take the land;
The colonist leader took a stand.
Do you know what was planned
The day the krenshar died?

We started singing,
So Bye, bye Miss Scorpion Pie
drove my horde to the ford but the ford was dry
an them good ol' boys were eaten camel and cat
singin this will be the day that I die,
this will be the day that I die.

Oh, and there we were all in one world,
A generation that unfurled
With no time left to start again.
So come on: Ginger be nimble, Ginger be quick!
Ginger prepared to kill the wizard
'Cause nudity is her only friend.

Oh, and as Rudanam watched her on the tree
My hands were cupped around my lips.
No angel born in heaven
Could save me from that knife.
And as the rain came down into the night
To ring with certain delight,
Uthnaruil decided to take flight
The day the krenshar died

He was singing,
So Bye, bye Miss Scorpion Pie
drove my horde to the ford but the ford was dry
an them good ol' boys were eaten camel and cat
singin this will be the day that I die,
this will be the day that I die.

I met a dwarf who yelled alot,
And I asked him to take it down a notch,
But he just growled and turned away.
We went down to the giant volcano
Where we saw fumes coming up before,
But the whole land tried to prevent us.

And in the night: the creatures screamed,
The spirits cried, and the animals dreamed.
But not a word was spoken;
The characters hearts all were broken.
And the three men we admired most:
Robert, the Emporer, and Jean Ferland,
They were of no help at all
The day the krenshar died.

And they were singing,
So Bye, bye Miss Scorpion Pie
drove my horde to the ford but the ford was dry
an them good ol' boys were eaten camel and cat
singin this will be the day that I die,
this will be the day that I die.

They were singing,
So Bye, bye Miss Scorpion Pie
drove my horde to the ford but the ford was dry
an them good ol' boys were eaten camel and cat
singin this will be the day that I die,
this will be the day that I die.

Hmm... that could very easily work for WoW as well, given some adjustments.

But yes... amusing! though I think I would need to know the game better to get it.

Yes, that one made it's way to my real life adventures as well. I still don't understand why people find it funny.

----

A man boarded an airplane and took his seat. As he settled in, he glanced up and saw an unusually beautiful woman boarding the plane. He soon realized she was heading straight toward his seat. Lo and behold, she took the seat right beside his.

Eager to strike up a conversation, he blurted out, "Business trip or vacation?"

She turned, smiled and said, "Business, The Annual Sexual Education Convention in Chicago."

He swallowed hard. Here was the most gorgeous woman he had ever seen, sitting next to him, and she was going to a meeting for sex education!

Struggling to maintain his composure, he calmly asked, "What's your business role at this convention?"

"Lecturer," she responded. "I use my experience to debunk some of the popular myths about sexuality."

"Really," he said. "What myths are those?"

"Well," she explained. "One popular myth is that African American men are the best endowed, when in fact, it's the Native American Indian who is most likely to possess that trait. Another popular myth is that French men are the best lovers, when actually it is the men of Jewish descent. We have, however, found that the best potential lover in all categories is the Southern Redneck."

Suddenly, the woman became a little uncomfortable and blushed. "I'm sorry," she said. "I shouldn't really be discussing this with you. I don't even know your name."

"Tonto," the man said. "Tonto Goldstein. But my friends call me Bubba."

Hans Grapje was raised in a Catholic school in The Hague and, as a young man, aspired to become a priest, but was drafted into the Army during WWII and spent two years co-piloting B17s until his aircraft was shot down in 1943 and he lost his left arm. Captain Grapje spent the rest of the war as a chaplain, giving spiritual aid to soldiers, both Allied and enemy.
After the war, he became a priest, serving as a missionary in Africa, piloting his own plane (in spite of his handicap) to villages across the continent. In 1997, Father Grapje was serving in Zimbabwe when an explosion in a silver mine caused a cave-in. Archbishop Grapje went down into the mine to administer last rights to those too severely injured to move. Another shaft collapsed, and he was buried for three days, suffering multiple injuries, including the loss of his right eye. The high silver content in the mine's air gave him purpura, a life-long condition characterized by purplish skin blotches.
Although Cardinal Grapje devoted his life to the service of God as a scholar, mentor, and holy man, church leaders agree: he will never ascend to the Papacy. No one wants a one-eyed, one-armed, flying purple Papal leader.

The video comes to a pretty definite end with credits and everything. And I see you caved in and got the album then. Seeing that video has helped me enjoy the music (I hadn't really picked up on the vaguely cowboy theem that Knights of Cydonia had until seeing that, it's a bit like Darkshines in that respect), but I'm still not wholly on board.
