Jan 15 2016: Yackety Saxs

The link has not updated yet, but the comic did.

I cannot help but think of scooby doo and the gang running through random doors while playing this music.

i doubt this will happen but I am kind of imagining them filling it with yumyuck moss berrys whatever until they see a bottom or to see if it is like portals where it hits a "bottom" and goes back to the "top"

After quite a few pages I just couldn't get into (especially with Forgath-Idle stuff) I'm really happy that the plot seems to be getting back on track. This seems like a cool place to go.

EDIT: Something I just noticed: you can still see the cut from where Complains cut into Minmax's face when they fought on the bridge, across the purple part. So that's cool.

But what use is it if all doors lead back to the hall with the doors?
Or do you need to find the one door that lads elsewhere?

If they have to open the doors from the inside, it's a good thing they have a human-sized being with them. I don't think the goblins would be able to reach on their own.

What's the point of Freleng Door Gag/Scooby-Dooby Doors in a Portal Hub?

Most of the doors are still under the moss. If they are in an open space such as another room then opening them from the inside might be the only way to get into that room. Alternately they might each be in different rooms throughout the dungeon.

Or a door to lava, or something equally destructive.

We will know what the idea behind the doors is....

With that many doors, and since doors in the room they're in take up room, some of those doors would pretty much have to open to somewhere else (assuming they open and they are consistent), either in this dungeon or elsewhere. Some might just open out into hell, though (the doors seem almost infinite). Also, since they don't seem to be able to find another way out of the room they're in, the mystery doors seem like the most logical path to try.

maybe, they'll use Oblivious to hang onto, but Minmax has to say "gray" first.

I'm guessing MM will try taking a running jump and hang on to a door handle. Then Fumb- *pauses* a goblin that isn't Fumbles will climb up MM to reach another door.

Why? They can get to the handle to door next to theirs quite easily if they just use one of their swords or something. The others hold on to one person to make sure he doesn't fall. Reasonably safe way to check their hypothesis.
You might be right, but is it productive?

Because he's Minmax, and as he himself admits he likes doing stuff that needlessly risks his life (see "penis go boom"). Plus, even if he misses there's a ton of other doors to catch.

I'm betting that there is a goat behind one of the doors. And that Monty Hall will show them the goat and then ask them if they want to keep the door they originally chose or switch to one of the 500 other doors.

I see it as more a Laugh-In style joke wall.

I'm betting that there is a door leading out of the room, and that there is a goat behind all other doors. And that Monty Hall will show them 498 doors with a goat behind, then ask them if they want to keep the door they originally chose or switch to the one door left closed.

Because you have to respect the spirit of the Monty Hall problem.

I know it's a bit off-topic, but Big Ears should really be turning his armor back on about now. There's almost certainly danger ahead behind at least some of these doors.
