But Forgath, you have such a bad image of your buddy... This time, he hasn't done anything.

You dont know for sure, he might have, lookit all them strange floating rifts ... reality is tearing slowly.

I wonder if it's a feature of the Axe of Prissan being sundered?

Yes, it's exactly that.

Well, Minmax was one of the reasons why they fought themselves, damaging the Axe of Prissan to a degree that all hell is breaking loose.

It's scary how well he knows Minmax.

I thought the Axe was damaged because it went through Kore's face. Which is tainted with demonic magic. Which is the Axe's weakness. And then it broke when it came into contact with Complains, who is part demon.

Well, Forgath chose to fight Kore, that is true, but Minmax did not help him, against his own judgement.

Well, it's all coming together.....


Anyway, just saw this on twitter and wanted to add to that, so copying:
@[color=red]Thunt[/color]_Goblins wrote:I'm really hoping that no one mistakes Idle's description of how she deals with death as me advocating suicide. That is absolutely not my intent.
And do not forget, Idle had a lot of practice to hit the right spot to let go.
If you're doing this only once, you won't hit the sweet spot, and either feel "lonely and scary", or your "soul feels a kind of horrible agony".
So, do not "do it", as that ain't a solution for anyone.
Least for yourself.

I'd like to thank Thunt for released this blessed art, albeit unknowingly, on my birthday. Really perked me up.

I really hope (despite my last post) that Idle and Forgath end up happily ever after. That dwarf needs a win, and I get the feeling that rabbit-elf does as well.

It was weakened, but them wantonly attacking themselves, goodly creatures, is what broke it.

That last panel is a wonderful example of Tarol's talent. It looks just like the tortured landscape of a dimension slowly dying, and the dimension they call hell devouring their reality. An amazing example of conceptual art.

Totally agree, Matney. Both are great characters!

What is Idle really talking about though? About letting the world end? Or is she breaking the 4th wall? Is she talking about the comic?

I'd like to add that THunt made a post about suicide prevention to go along with the page, on top of what he posted on Twitter.
You might be right, but is it productive?

Yeah:
Idle's death curse and what it doesn't mean.

My original post I put here is one of the posts that was jinxed and disappeared...

THunt is good people.

Idle is, IMO, going to end up being one of those characters that I'm going to love to watch.

It broke when it hit Fumbles who is without a doubt the most innocent and good aligned character in the comic. With the possible exception of young children.

Most innocent, yes, but I would argue that he ties with Big Ears for most goodly.
