Re: Last Man Posting

The general definition of "weird", as it pertains to social interaction, from my experience, is loosely defined as, "Somebody whose actions do not make logical or rational sense to others nearby," or possibly, "Somebody that behaves in a manner which does not befit a member ...

Re: Last Man Posting

"Normal" is a setting on a washing machine. I prefer "passably sane", or at least, "not completely crazy". Derp.

Re: Comic for June 19, 2021: Kathrin in trouble pt6

By far the most practical way for the collars to constantly resupply the collar with mana would be to simulate how human mana cores work, that requires the least maintenance out of all of the possible solutions. Using the Keidran's natural magic supply would require a constant supply of crystals. I...

Re: Comic for June 19, 2021: Kathrin in trouble pt6

snip I don't think it works that way. I assume conservation of matter still applies to mana, so you would need to continuously supply the collar with mana as it's continuously burning mana to keep it powered. The target of the spell wouldn't affect that. Okay then, if conservation of energy applies...

Re: Comic for June 19, 2021: Kathrin in trouble pt6

If I remember correctly didn't Mike or evals once sai that they were not being controlled because the collars ran out of magic and since Eric was frolicking around the Basitins isle he forgot to re-enchant them? In short, no, not really. The magic on the island was kinda "broken" after th...

Re: Comic for June 19, 2021: Kathrin in trouble pt6

Then how do slave collars work? They are used on crystal-less Keidrans. They don't seem to get it from the owner because Keidrans would need to constantly use crystals I assume. My guess is they use ambient mana in the air, or they are powered by the runes themselves (I dislike this idea because th...

Re: Last Man Posting

I'm weird. I've always known this. I have abnormal habits, I do strange things, and all of my coworkers are accustomed to it. But apparently I've reached a whole new level, by rolling my pant legs up a couple inches because it's hot. Not sure if it's just me, or if everyone else has suddenly forgott...

Re: Comic for June 19, 2021: Kathrin in trouble pt6

Given that Eric also used normal shackles, even if they did not even chaffed, on his slaves, maybe magic powered slave collars are very expensive and only large slavers can afford it? Per Roderick, back at Eric's house: It is illegal, per the Templar, to own any slave not bound by a control spell. ...

Re: Comic for June 19, 2021: Kathrin in trouble pt6

Using ambient mana would make sense, but so would using mana inadvertently supplied by the wearer. Also, we know what Clovis is like. I highly doubt that a human's voice would in any way carry more weight than one of his goons, owner or not. It might even be programmed specifically to ignore human o...

Also, I have a feeling that Zen has feeling for Kat, more than Eric has for her it seems. Well, it has been hinted at just a few times over the years that they might become a thing at some point before everything's settled. In the side art, anyway. ...this took forever...

Re: Comic for June 19, 2021: Kathrin in trouble pt6

It would actually be a good idea to design a mind control device to fail if following an order required extreme actions outside of the direct order. Imagine you order a slave to go outside, but the guards stop her, so that the slave believes the only immediate way to get through that door is to kil...

Re: Comic for June 19, 2021: Kathrin in trouble pt6

I'd wager the order still stands. It's not the caster keeping the spell up, nor is it the caster's will, so I bet that the shackle going dead is unrelated to Rom's death.
