Big enough to scare everybody away :mrgreen:
Maybe this cat is the reason for the deserted landscape we have seen ?

One does wonder how the raptorcat learned that stickhumans were viable prey. From what I know about keyboards, they are unlikely to attack people unprovoked.

We have not seen a lot of larger molpies that would provide adequate prey, for such a larger predator. And I still think it was going after Cueball's bag, not him. I wonder, though, how long was it following them?

Since the cairn at the start of the plateau, newpix 2188 showed the nose of the raptorcat. It appeared in the bushes around newpix 2215. So at least 27 newpix of stalkery.

Thanks. I needed that, I've still got 60 pages to go (NP836).
Speaking of that page:
Spoiler:
Neil_Boekend, your signature had me legitimately worried for what I'd find on NP836, and I was half-dreading the possibility that you might have actually died. Perhaps you could place the word deceased in quotes? It took me a long time to catch the connection to your location, listed as "The Great Beyond."

You don't really have to, though. I have a habit of reading too much into things.

My case is that I had the ONG for something like five minutes. I was waiting for Kieryn to remove his. then this happened. He had a post immediately after mine for a considerable time with the newpic.

I also got unsatisfactory, even patronizing responses from some of you also.

It was fun until it wasn't. Yes, it is a small thing, but I thought I had earned some respect.

I wasn't around to see what happened live, so all I saw was two posts the same second. I am quite sure that no regular posters can rearrange posts, so the computer glitch explanation makes sense. But, by all means, when something done for fun stops being fun, stop doing the thing. Might be preferable if you didn't suck the fun out for other people on your way out though.

Angelastic wrote:Before I got to the latest newpix, I hypothesised that the lack of bleeding would cause them to discover that they are stick figures in a cartoon and don't have room for any blood. Then they would break through the fourth wall and ask the GLR why the sea was rising, and he'll say it was a plot device to get them away from the beach so that he could tease us with LaPetite and keep us watching the comic in the hope of finding out who she was. Then they'd ask GLR who LaPetite is and he'd say that she is a plot device to tease us and keep us watching Cuegan. Then they'll ask GLR who they are, and he'll start wondering who anyone really is, when it comes down to it, and they'll be forced to squirt him with their remaining dilgunnerang, which, it turns out, is actually a Super Soaker.

I simultaneously love this theory, and hope that it is wrong. If that makes any sense... (Bit coma-deprived.)

Megan is telling Cueball that that was their family pet named Lucky., which they set free when it started growing too big and they realised it wasn't a housecat. Cueball is expressing concern that she might have hurt Lucky.

Gah! Yes, reading that as "timey-odie, schmimey-odie" completely mustards your double dactyl. Image

mscha: Excellent work on the animation. I love how clear and sharp it is!

cellocgw wrote:Just goes to show what a horrible misunderstanding this all has been. The reality is: after wandering the land for 20 <years>, Cueball returns to his native land and his faithful catdog Argmolpos jumps on him with joy. Megan, not knowing of this, whacks the poor critter upside the head. Feeling totally betrayed, Argmolpos runs off to form a zombie army.

Now that is an Odyssey movie I want to see.

Goodness, I need to give up comaing! I've missed the attack of the meowply, the attack on the meowply, and the heated departure of almost literally the last person I would expect.

Thank goodness I didn't miss the End of the OTC or the OTT, that would have been a blow.


I don't think this has been tossed forward:

nsub1 wrote:hey has ne1 noticed the weird javascritp ???!???




But really, I have been lurking since the OTT pagecount was in the single digits. The reason I delurked (and registered!)? Because when I saw NP 2228 (with raptorcattack) I actually yelled "WAAH!" out loud.

And super-sadly now I must coma, and I'll be at a reunion this whole wip! Bah!

I'm fairly sure there's at least one other firstpost that needed bumping, but I couldn't identify it.

It's rather big for a pet.

(Unless, of course, it's a savannah.)

Which leaves me to Serval, an African cat.

I've heard that they're sometimes kept as pets in Africa. Or at least, as trained hunting cats. Though it boggles the mind that any cat could be trained to hand over its prey.

All this time, I've been careful to do only straight pixel magnification without any fancy filters, since those can only remove information, not add it, right? Wrong! Image
When I saw your blown-up molpycat yesterday, I realized that a fancy resize does in fact at least create the appearance of more detail. (The legs and ears came out beautifully and recognizable, and in mine they were just blown-up pixels.) So now I've changed my molpy zooming strategy, and indeed, looks a lot better.

I see a lot of care (love?) in the way that these two reacted to this attack. Cueball pulls Meagan out of the Raptorcat's path to his own peril, then Meagan instantly tries to draw the Raptorcat's attention back to herself, and as soon as the threat is running she throws down her weapon to focus on her stick-man.

Try to make him hiss
Take too long to hit him and
Cueball gets a kiss

Cueball:
Because Megan-raptor swings the meanest ninja-stick around
If I got on her raptor-list, I'd get out of town

Megan: I wish my cohort weren't so dumb
Cueball: I'm not the dumb one
Megan: You're no fun

Both: Stick-thwap the Sandy Claws
Cueball: Smash him into bits, girl
Megan: Save my partner's life and we
Both: Disappoint the BlitzGirl!

Both:
Stick-thwap the Sandy Claws
Chase him off your bag
Knock him on the castle and
Stab him with our flag!

Brilliant! :D

Okay, one final version of the luckyattacknimation... The dialogue in this last newpix is perfect to end with...
I also added some more frames at the beginning, and some more pixels at the left hand side, so you can see Lucky creeping closer. It's an eve 24 frames, now.

I suppose "Yeah, before we escaped the compound the guards always used to try and scare me about Panthera pardus suahelica, but I kind of figured that the virus had wiped them out along with almost all other mammalian species" was too much to hope for...

Coma time for me - as usual, I was holding out for one last informational tidbit, and got a return to monosyllabism instead. All is well and normal once more in Cueganland :D

On my way out, let me spread some praise and adulation for Blitzgirl, for the whirlwind of hilarious images; jjjdavidson for the fabulous OTTification; Angelastic, cellocgw and other for the theories (I always love to hear a theory); and mscha for the can't-look-away animation (my post-mustard diatribe about detail earlier on was really a tribute to the compelling clarity of mscha's GIF-ifying prowess). The explosion of creative geekery in this forum is a wonder to behold.

Dodge him when he springs
Grab our secret ninja-stick
Drive him to the wings

I say use a giraffmolpy
Bring it in from just offscreen
Wave the bait and when he charges
Stomp him into smithereens!

Megan:
You're so stupid, keep the mustard
In the jars and on the shelves
Let a giraffmolpy join and
Both: We can't beat him up ourselves!

@kenmelken: That is an awesome Epic of Pricklymolp entry! You are really pulling out all the stops in your careful and thoughtful documentation. Pretty soon we'll have to give you a PhD for your thesis!

in the heading, BlitzGirl wrote:I have developed psychic tendencies from all this otting
I read that at first as I have developed psychotic tendencies... and catching your glee at seeing the rowrmolpy attack Cueball, thought to myself "yep...so she has!". I'm becoming scared of your molpy army!

So much else to reply to, but I think I'll leave it at that.
