First encountering OOTS is a huge timesink.   :D

Erfworld is the other strip on the OOTS site. It's a strip about wargaming; coincidentally, it is slower and more serious than OOTS.  Erfworld also has an edge to it that makes it a bit racier than OOTS.

Thanks for that - I finally caught up with OOTS and now I have to start Erfworld :roll:

OOTS is a simple read.  A single episode of OOTS makes sense and is humorous.  Characters and motives are easily identified.  OOTS rules.   :D

Erfworld is almost a complete mystery for the first 13 episodes.  Reading Erfworld is frustrating/confusing because the whole environment is new. Everything began making sense to me after 17 episodes.  Now that 60-some pages are up, the story is progressing slowly but fully.  It's closer to text fiction than a webcomic.

Agreed ... Erfworld does take some time to get into.  Once you do it is fun.  However, I love the wit and references to popular culture in OotS.

Having Paladins use pokeballs to summon their mounts is a classic.  :lol:

I know its not the best... and I apologize to everyone.

`Twas Badmike, and the Acaeum crew
 Did gyrate and rumble and rant and rave:
At Acaeum where they secretly knew,
 That Killjoy's wrath would send to the grave

"Beware the Giant Shrew, my son!
 The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the unknown rare, and shun
 The famous Daystar Ravenloft!"

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
 Long time the woodgrain box he sought --
So rested he under the auction tree,
 And stood awhile in thought.

And, as in oafish thought he stood,
 The Shrew, with eyes of flame,
Came silently through the Tegel wood,
 And pranced as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
 The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He turned quite dead, a hit to his own head
 A penalty attack across the back.

"And, has thou slain the Giant Shrew?
 Come to my arms, my dreaming boy!
O fabulous day! Callooh! Callay!'
 He chortled in his joy.

`Twas Badmike, and the Acaeum crew
 Did gyrate and rumble and rant and rave:
At Acaeum where they secretly knew,
 That Killjoy's wrath would send to the grave


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.

The story, the images, the photos, and now the Carrollesque homage . . .

Who will be the first to make a Cafe Press coffee mug or T-Shirt with Mike and Spunky on it?   :D

Anyone know how to kick out a bidder after they've bid on an item?
I have what I think is a bs bidder on one item -- I've blocked him from further bids but want to kick him out of the auction entirely.

Giant Shrews are probably like tigers and always go for the back of the neck.

So we still some extra chain mail for the head/neck area.

As a side note the chainmail (as shown in the picture of the office worker on the geek site) will protect you from ever going on a date with the hot chick in your office.  :wink:
