Another good point, Sieggy. Let's hope that's a gigantic sandwich he's eating.

Man, I cannot WAIT for the Klog to pop today.
Fort Knox can't prepare for teleporters, sure. But they can prepare for quick snatch and grabs, say by high tech ninjas with directional limpet mines, compact plasma torches, sensor blinding gadgets, and so forth. Hence, without asking how, they can conceive of an intruder who somehow makes it to the stacks without being detected.

I really have nothing to add about the story, i'm just waiting for the next update.

Seperate from anything else, the contined temperature of the discussion gives me two observatons

1. Web Monkey Death Match has now moved to the top of my ifiwinthelottery list.

2. I read a lot of webcomics. For most of them, the discussion of a single episode rarely makes more than one page and when more than a week passes between updates, discussion usually peters out. The fact that things are diiferent here is a sign of creative genius-- in spite of ourselves we are made to care deeply about everything that goes on in Rob's head.

I believe I'm reading a lot of webcomics too, from the big popular stuff to more obscure/indie things.
My observation brings about the same conclusion. Erfworld sparks intense interest in it's reader base on about every page. The only webcomic (I hesitate on "webcomic" to describe it tough) I follow that sparks more discussion/debates/thories than Erfworld - that I know of- is Homestuck/MS Paint Adventures but the difference in scale of both the works and the readership is too immense to compare them but proportionally.

Sign of a job well done to me! 8-)
Well, OOTS has a ton of comments and wacky theories, too... but it's also one of the juggernauts out there, in terms of readership.

Is there a (semi-statistical, as opposed to users clicking for popularity) list of most popular webcomics out there?

I'm glad. I was really just teasing the hell out of you. :lol:

Tram believes Jetstone is screwed in long term, but Parson himself said that they're screwed if Wanda dies.


The point of negotiation is that the outcomes "Jetstone screwed" and "GK screwed" are not mutually exclusive.

Tram figured that they'll be dropping crap, so WHY THE HELL did he order all infantry BELOW yellow dwagons? That's a moment of blue screen, no logical explanation putting troops below yellow dwagons known to drop acidic crap. And they know about decryption too...


Someone else already offered a logical explanation: Jetstone can't pay their upkeep and it would hurt morale to disband them. Here's another: the Dungeon probably can't hold all the units that were in the Atrium, and units sent down there would have complained about being kept out of the action (see Duke Lacrosse and original Wrigley).
Cheers, Oberon. :) I think this is the first time in several discussions that we have been able to reach some semblance of mutual understanding, so I will rate that as progress. ;)

This is a job for XKCD!

Or maybe Language Log.
Sorry if this has been asked before, but in the second panel the hobgoblin says "Target unled infantry!"... Aren't they making the attack intentional and thus impossible to make? I'm probably missing something obvious here, so help me out if you can :)

Evidently, yellow dwagons CAN take "potshots" at units below them in other zones. As Tram belatedly worried after he had walked under them earlier. Perhaps thus potshotting under normal circumstances has no accuracy. Hence why Wanda didn't take the opportunity to take out the enemy CW directly under her, and why Tram wasn't too worried about being able to evacuate the Atrium before suffering heavy casualties.
