Oh, my, they found a map somewhere? I don’t remember that. Does that mean that…
Noooo, that’s impossible! Just today would the RSS feed start to work, and I’d have missed several months of CC?
Come on, I… woops, that’s apparently exactly what happened. Ah well, looks like I’ve got some updating on my hands as a reader.
I feel the need to make clear that the previous message is not intended as criticism. OK, right, it IS criticism, but not intended in a mean way. I’ve known this comic for long enough to know that technology is your kryptonite, O (or maybe you’re kryptonite to technology, I’m not sure).
Keep up with the good work! At what you’re good at, that is. You’re plenty good at what you’re good at.
Heh, yeah, I know. But hey, with a little luck, things should work a whole lot better from now on (in regards to the whole technical aspect of the site, I mean). After all, I didn’t make it, so what could go wrong?
(cue dramatic cliffhanger music)
Maybe teleport spells are painful…I mean, sure, we love our mages and empaths, but do we consider their feelings? I mean, suppose a spell does for a wizard what a cigarette does for us. They say you moke one, you lose ten minutes off your life. Two, three pack a day smokers are losing months, years. So let’s say a heal moderate injury spell is like one smoke, and a full teleport is like lighting up five packs at a sitting. How many spells does a mage use in your average campaign? Oy, the stress! He’s liable to croak any minute!…
Perhaps Gandalf couldn’t cast teleport? http://www.therpgsite.com/showthread.php?t=7338
i always thought gandalf was a lame ass low level wizard. The highest level spell cast in that campaign was fireball! also, his barred school of magic might have been conjuration. did you ever see him summon anything? what about teleport anything?
My query was always why didn’t they use the fleet of giant eagles they had? I mean the beastie could’ve let them coast right over mordor and they could just drop it off. they wouldn’t even necessarily had to have even landed.
I thought about that for all of 5 minutes when I first read the books, I eventually decided that Sauron could hijack any magical transportation to bring the ring directly to him if anybody tried to teleport it or the like. Also, the eagles were actually assholes, they expected the whole thing to fail and refused to get anywhere near the ring.
Of course, the fact that Mordor’s walls were lined with orc and human archers had *nothing* to do with why a a frontal assault by the the eagles would never have worked. Sauron’s flock of flying demon reptiles wouldn’t have provided *any* resistance to a bunch of eagles. The fact that the moment one of those nazgul riders sensed which eagle was carrying the ring he could have killed or injured it sufficiently to allow him to capture the ring and deliver it *immediately* to Sauron would never have given the White Counsel a reason to decide on a stealthier course of action…
