#175 – “We’re With Stupid”

Be careful, he is a big.

Edit: Right. Where’s the update. To be honest, I have no idea. I’ve been staring blankly at an empty page off and on for like an hour or two and I have all these ideas, all these thoughts and everything.. and they just won’t line up in my head. Too much bouncing around at once, maybe. Just been one of those periods lately. I’ll have it sorted by sunday, I just need to find my focus somehow.

    As long he doesn’t turn green and bigger Hani should be fine.

    Paladins = Fine.
    Sneaking paladins = fair enough.
    Sneaking paladins wearing full plate = what the nelly?

      There was a big commotion, and she’s little and only had to avoid the ogres notice. But more importantly, I think it worked well dramatically :)

    Wonderful page, like the 174 other ones! I simply would love to see the Lookouts’ faces when they saw the little paladin step into plain view. xD

    Nice pages! have’t checked up for a while couse of some RL things making me misrable,(got hit hard by a car for 1 thing) but i do love how it has come along!

    And Nhani, if u need some inspiration for dialogue, just go play an RPG that has totally nothing to do with WoW,(i suggest Mass effect 2), it should help u get your head clear and get some new ideas.

    For the rest, keep it up!!

      I’ve actually been playing Mass Effect 2 at any free moment since I got it up until last night when I finally completed it, actually; which with the delay on the Collector’s Edition in certain countries meaning I’ve been playing it since late thursday night (and no, that’s not why the comic was put on hold)

      To a point it had the slight opposite effect in short term because I spent making this particular page while grumbling how I’d much rather play the game, and even now after completing it it’ll still take me a few days to process through the experience and get the characters worked over, decisions made on what I might do different next time and then have it all stashed away until I play it again so I have room for other characters.

      It’s still good to refuel on narrative, though; there’s only so far I can go on my own concoctions, so getting to field off into other characters and settings is important. It was definitely a good journey to make, and while I’m happy to have gone through it, part of me regrets it being over; waiting for the third and final piece of the trilogy is going to be bothersome.

      All that said, I think the main obstacle for writing I’ve been having recently is distraction – I’ve had other things, other problems, other characters and other narratives in mind than the Beyond the Tree cast in mind a fair bit lately, which means less time working on improvising the characters.

    Havnt commented for a while, but this, as always is oozing awesomesauce and pure epicness.

    That reminds me… I need to make some macros for my taunt so that my character actually insults the target. “Hey ugly! Over here!” “Did you see (target)s face? I’ve seen Ogres with nicer looking…” :P I need to actually do this sometime…

      I’ve actually played with the macros myself once, used the taunt I got from watching too many mortar shots from the dwarves.

      “Hey you! Catch!”

      Works well either with a throwing weapon or a good ol’ boomstick. I think it’s better with a gun though – seems less of a chance to catch a bullet. Except in the chest.

    Super job…perfect illustration of an Ogre’s intelligence. :)

    Haha, nice reference to “Backstroke of the West” there.
    Looking forward to the next scenes =D

      Backstroke of the West amuses; I remember seeing a Men in Black II DVD with the same kind of pirate subtitling as well that also was something of a riot – I found the subtitling was more fun than the movie itself, actually.

      It contained such gems as “The headquarters have been destroyed, baby!” and “There is a BARGE in the electrical system!”.

    Sad thing he doesn’t have two heads – that’d make for some awesome dialogue. ;P
