No, you're not. I couldn't care less about those two. I would much prefer Forgath dealing with the issues at hand (i. e. Kore's very real threat to kill everyone he knows and loves) instead of having, um, Idle banter.

according to the recent poll, about 80% readers don't like them, so, no.

Even though I couldn't respond, I did see how the poll was worded.

The results don't show that readers don't like the new characters -- only that they still like MinMax and the Goblins better. This is not surprising. MinMax and the Goblins have been around since the beginning of the comic. Everyone's got a lot more information about them, a lot more reasons to care. That group can coast on the past.

Despite his recent badass heroics, Forgath has always been more of a sidekick who can't carry a storyline all by himself. We've never known enough about what makes him tick. The new characters haven't gotten going yet, and for reasons I've articulated elsewhere, I don't expect their motivations to be very deep or involving for a while yet. Still, there's potential.

If Tarol runs the same poll a year from now, the results may be very different.

I agree, Sessine. We've only seen them for a handful of pages. It's hard to truly pick up an affinity for a character in what amounts to 2 minutes of screen time. :) I think Idle has the chance to rival Kin... eventually. I don't mean rival as in a cat fight, but rival as in 'be as great as in all our minds'.

Yeah, I agree, I just wanted to make a tongue-in-cheek response o:)

I like the GAP better than everyone, so it was hardly a fair poll, anyway. Maybe he should've put FBI up against MAP or Dies & Fox's group.

Thunt (again) wants to increase his vote incentives...

Any ideas for vote incentives?

Lore! And possible spoilers since it's a detail that hasn't been mentioned explicitly in the comic:

Now, that's an interesting snippet of information.
But it may well be, and it is likely, that the set of rules for G:AR differs from the rules of Thuntverse as portrayed in the comic.

I don't believe that class alignment is a game mechanic - if it is, Thunt's never mentioned it in his Tweets to my knowledge.

What on earth are those things under the vote button?

Also, I feel like I'm going to need a Thaco miniature, even though I have no idea what I'm going to do with it.

I've put them over at the G:AR thread, but I'll paste them here too, and for those who missed the first page, that one is available on twitter too:
