June 21st, 2020 - Not a Very Good Guesser

Post by Nina » Sun Jun 21, 2020 12:34 am

Hi everybody! New comic! ..... 2020, June 21st.


https://www.goblinscomic.com/comic/page-8-2020


I thought that the talking skull fragment looked like a goblin, but this comic it does not. Killer curious about what species it is.

Hugs, Nina.

Hi Nena! Congrats on starting a thread! You can get the link to the current page by hitting the back arrow to view the previous page and then copy the link to the current page from the forward arrow. Please also add today's date to the thread topic. Let me know if you have trouble.

Looks like the GAP is under a time crunch.

Elli said she was adding a new character inspired by her journey as a trans woman. This might be the one.

I've no idea what is going on with the clocks, but I really don't like them. I think such things are bound to be painful trickery.

I do like the new character asking for a guess as to it's species and origin.

And, I wonder why its not in pain, whereas Chief was in pain/agony.

Chief was still bound to Kore, this Demon's soul is not (anymore).
plus, as a demon it may find that rather normal...

Hi Krulle,
I don't think so, I don't get the evil or chaotic vibe from this guy.

If you pull one of the gnome eggs down, will all the rest go up?

If it's not a Demon, maybe it's a goat?

Perhaps it's a faun, and it's not complaining of the pain because it's a satyr-masochist.

I could cite the same image to indicate horns.

I'm guessing demon too. Or ogre, or race of goblin(because I've never seen a winged goblin before) Perhaps even a horned human, because magic

Off topic: Am I blind or the "new topic" button is really hard to find? Seriously... I just wanna make that first post to say I'm not a robot and don't intend to do those things that people did that the forum doesn't allow but they did it anyway and I won't do

Nope, to create a "new topic", you need a certain post count.
I think it's 3 or five.

So a tad more, and you'll find it easily.

edit: it's in the forum rules:

In an effort to combat spammers, we have disabled certain features for brand new members (such as the ability to start new topics), there is a very easy way to get around these restrictions... make two posts. Seriously, that's all you have to do, and because you should be introducing yourself in that thread linked above it's really only one extra post.
Thus, the button should magically appear for you now when you look at a sub-forum.

Maybe I'm misremembering, but I think Ehuntonian demons don't have souls, so that might prevent Lore from keeping their souls from the afterlife.

They do look an awful lot like a demon, though.

Maybe some sort of dragonkin?

I can't remember that. It's also not mentioned in the explanatory filler page about demons.


Also the font and blue background seems to speak for Demons to me.

And regarding the new, unconventional character Elli's been promising us:
This may indeed be the one.
A character that's by origin a Demon, but decided to be "good", or something like that.
I wonder how much exposure we'll get.
The exposure that Big Ears is a gay character was in-comic also only very short.

Being trans isn't about "deciding" to be something else. It's about coming to terms with who you are, despite how you look on the outside.

Ears was always gay (she tweeted about it years before it came up in the comic), and the point of him being "outed" is that it's completely unimportant. Irrelevant to the story. And of no consequence to the GAP. It's just part of who he is, and his friends accept that without hesitation. His liking hair (which goblins generally don't have and aren't attracted to), now that, they'll tease him about.

As for our new friend... I'm guessing it's a gargoyle.

Demon? Ogre? Am I the only one here who follows Elli on twitter? She posted the full design, race and name of the new character a while back. Even its sexual orientation.

I'd vote for thielfing as well, but somekind of horned merfolk is a good guess as well. :D

Thanks for the link, WearsHats already linked it above too. So you're not the only one. I saw it back then too, but it slipped my mind in the meantime.

I'm not sure that everything Elli posts on twitter is also canon.

@Wears: I know it's not about "deciding". But even a Demon can be "good". And decided to follow this trait rather than the societal norm of "evil".


Also, I wonder in how far this character is the new character. It's dead, and just the soul remained caught on a face-like "skull-element".
It may well be the Goblins will use this character to find a way to free the souls from Kore.

Also, I find the study of "Socks" does not really fit the skull as shown in the current page.
Also, this character is not Socks, but Pawlush.

Maybe the name can give us a hint?
"Pawlush", could indicate fur, and of course paws, instead of feet and/or hands.
A horned cat?

It's not named Socks and don't look at all like Socks. So I 100% agree this is something else.

Pawlush sounds polish to me. And makes me think of someone who is ringing bells and feeding dogs.

Yeah right, I got confused between the two characters which have the same face shape, same circles over the eyes and horns. Completely different.

This is the gargoyle. Elli changed the name and the design, big deal.

When they manage to get it out of Kore's lump perhaps it will have a design more similar to Elli's sketch, remember that we are not seing the true face of the creature, but the distorted face melted with Kore's skin.

ET[huntonian demons.

Are we still calling this flavour of DnD "Thuntonian", what with Elli changing her name? I assumed that's what Kirktopode was referencing.

Elli said she's fine with it being the Thuntonian Universe. She used to hate the term because she was uncomfortable having it named after her. Now it isn't. Thunt is in no way her name, so Thuntonian is free to just be a fun term.
