MSTed - How About A Break?

"Light globes don't exist in D&D. Thank the gods for oil lanterns, or I'd have to draw a candle." First, you don't draw this comic, because you are not the Author. Second, candles are *easier* to draw than lanterns. Third, no more MSTing for approximately a long time. Woo!

Author Notes:

Yep, I'm taking my two-year-old decision to heart once again. Even if technically there's no real point in doing so. Apart from the fact that it makes for a convenient, if whimsical link to the next chapter.

Well, actually it's two years, two months and twenty-two days since I scheduled that hiatus. That's a lot of twos. Two is a good number.

Incidentally, this comic had the most painful text-bubbling work since this chapter's started. It was terrible.

The original version of this comic is here.

What does MSTing mean?

MST stands for Mystery Science Theater, the show that this chapter has been parodying. Over time MST has been an acronym for reviewing other's work in a snarky, voiceover-type style.

Nope. I'm not taking a hiatus. Doctor Forrester is, however.

Ooh, ominous!

The main character from War Of The Worlds is taking a hiatus? That's really ominous, especially if the Martians aren't taking one and continue destroying the world in the meantime.

...Oh, right. Sorry.

as usual I have no idea what's going on but am revelling in its obscure yummy goodness



Narrator: Twenty-seven minutes later...
Jane: Oh no! I'm out of Reduce and Enlarge spells!

Fred: You had *twenty-seven* minutes worth of Reduce and Enlarge spells?!
Jane: Hey, Bob's even smaller than he was twenty-seven minutes ago. Apparently my Reduce spells are much, much more powerful than my Enlarge spells...


Joel: When Thomas Edison had the idea to invent the light globe, what do you think appeared above his head?
Jane: Joseph Wilson Swan invented the light globe.
Joel: Okay, when Joseph Swan had the idea-
Trope-tan: Actually, the light globe evolved in parallel from approximately 22 separate inventors.
Joel: Okay, when *22 separate inventors* all had the idea to invent-
Jane: Joke's getting tired. Enough.

Dispel Magic!

Jane: See? What did I say last week? Dispel Magic was always the right choice.
Fred: Wait. Dispel Magic is a *third-level* spell. Where did you get third-level spell slots from?
Jane: Do you want me to tell you and spoil the mystery, or would you prefer to speculate upon these strange occurrences further?
Fred: Right, don't tell me.

Bob: Hey, everyone. This would be a perfect time to say "A-
All: No.
Bob: Say, I'm pretty angry in this comic. I could be angry again. And you wouldn't like me when I'm angry.
Crow: When you're angry, we *ignore you*.

Bob: Alright, I am now officially more angry than anybody else in this stupid world!

Joel: Officially, huh?
Tom: Do you have an angry license?
Crow: It's not official unless you have an angry license.
Fred: These are the rules. The rules that I just made up.

Bob: Not only did I spend FOUR (or was it five?) comics not being the right size, every single one has had a lame punchline!

Crow: They had *punchlines*?!
Trope-tan: It was five, incidentally.
Jane: ... you actually kept track of how many comics Bob was resized in?
Trope-tan: He was incredibly creepy. It made an impression.

Bob: And, for a D&D comic, there hasn't been a SINGLE D&D joke! Maybe whoever's writing this thing should take some time off and think up some GOOD jokes.

Fred: Hey, don't be so harsh. I made a D&D joke earlier. Possibly.
Joel: Otherwise, you're pretty much spot-on. Well done with that.
Tom: How convenient that the author's written this panel specifically so that he gets time off.

Author: Bob's right. I should take some time off. The Way of the Metagamer returns 27th April.

Jane: The 27th of April?
Trope-tan: Today's the 12th of June...
Crow: So we get... 289 days before this thing continues? *Good*.
