Order of the Stick has updated!

You may now breathe again.

Moe Lane

PS: Basically, OOTS is one of the greatest webcomics ever made, and its artist/writer seriously hurt his drawing hand several months ago. I mean, really, REALLY hurt his hand. We were very worried…

Hey! Got my Order of the Stick poster!

Most nifty:

…OK, how do people take pictures of things under glass without also taking a picture of their reflection? Do you have to use a telephoto lens?

Ohhhhhhhhh…

CRAP.

I mean, damn, Rich Burlew.

Just… damn.

Sweet monkey Jeebus: OOTS hits 1 million on Kickstarter.

Burlew, of course, celebrates it in the only appropriate way possible.

Seriously, at this stage of the game signing up for a pledge is a bargain, if you like the Order of the Stick webcomic: you end up with a LOT of original PDFs and goodies even at $10 or $25. Plus, the entire freaking book line has a guaranteed print line. It’s almost alarming.

PS: Rich. Buy yourself a new computer. You can even buy one that supports Skyrim. Your readers won’t mind.

LAWFUL GOOD REPRESENTS, N00BZ.

That’s how you do it.

Mind you, it took forever for the latest OOTS to come out, but given the payoff – and the last line, which frankly thrilled my soul – I suppose that we’ll just have to let Burlew get away with it.

Noooooooooo.

Stay bad, Belkar!  Stay bad!

What?  It’s just a webcomic, for crying out loud.  I’m allowed to like the psychotic Chaotic Evil halfling ranger just fine the way he is.

For the record…

this is cheating.  More accurately: it violates the unspoken rule in worlds of this type that Evil be required to do some quite deliberately dumb things in exchange for not being immediately ganged up on by Good and Neutral.

Everybody have a good Christmas?

I’m pleased with mine, particularly dinner. We had a roast, and a surprisingly appropriate pinot noir. Plus, Order of the Stick compilations that I didn’t have! All in all: low-key, but nice.

‘Mind Flayers.’

‘Why did it have to be mind flayers?’ See also here, here, and here. On the other hand, it was always nice to see one in Nethack; once you killed it, eating it would raise your Intelligence score a point. Of course, hopefully you had on a helmet that would keep it from eating your brain down to Intelligence 3 first.

Why, yes, that link does lead to a download that will likewise eat your brain through the wonders of text-based nostalgia. You want that to happen again? No? Then hit the tip jar for the travel fund, and maybe it won’t.

Moo hoo bwah hah.

…and the horse you rode in on, Xykon.

The best part of this?

Third level spellNo saving throw for the item.

Boom.

Order of the Stick #639.

Yipe.

Moe Lane

PS: This is why you don’t make deals with shadowy, evil-aligned figures in robes.  Particularly when they tell you over and over again that the power that they give you is totally and unambiguously under your control.

PPS: You really should own this series.

See, this is why I read Order of the Stick.

It isn’t because of the D&D jokes, although those are fun.  It’s because it’s clever.

And because Rich Burlew actually takes moral questions seriously.

Moe Lane

PS: I’d also like to note for the record that this is exceptionally self-referential:

…but it sounds really cool.
