Re: 1190: "Time"

Sad today. Went on a long hike. It was baggish. Saw lots of molpies: beesnakes, fluttermolpies, chirpies, squirpies, bunnimolps, some pet wolpies, and plenty of other adventurers (more than 40). No meowlpies. I wonder when I'll stop thinking of the local wildlife in terms of "molpy" or its...

Re: 1190: "Time"

This is THE climax, not A climax. My gut feeling is that there's a good deal more story to come. Or maybe it's just a hope, because I've been enjoying the comic and the thread so far. I hope the GLR feels that it's worthwhile to continue. GLR here is engaged in world-building. There's a level of im...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I'm disinclined to think that the OTC is made up on the fly. Plus, we've got the Edfel map, which was pieced together as we went along from what information otters were able to glean from the OTC. And it happens to fit nicely with the western Mediterranean basin. I don't see that working out as an ...

So I know it's kind of a long shot, but maybe the Beanies are not building a castle. Maybe they're dismantling one. Old castles make a nice supply of readily-available cut stone. A castle may not be all that practical any more in their society, why not use the stone to build houses and walls and gar...
