Rendering babies insufficently delicious to eat is pretty easy for any spellcaster. They just need to apply a decent Prestidigitation spell.

Author Notes:

SRD references (Oh, that's right! This comic sometimes has Dungeons and Dragons in it!): Prestidigitation

TV Tropes references: Dead Baby Comedy | Theory Of Narrative Causality | Unsound Effect

This comic references the mechanics of narrativium, mentioned in the previous comic's notes.

It seems like you've basically turned your comic into one big effort to get on as many pages of TvTropes as possible...

In my defense,

two of the three tropes invoked in this comic have already been invoked, and thus don't earn me extra pages.

Really, if everyone listed all the tropes in their comics too, it'd look like they're trying to get on every page as well.

Although yes, I am going for Trope Overdosed. :P

You have a point, it just seems like you are letting the tropes write the story, instead of the story happen to use tropes..

nice concept but how about YOU don't out the Trope references and see if your readers can identify them? that would be sorta fun



Jane: What just happened? Trope-tan?
Trope-tan: Jane? Is that you?
Jane: Yes. Indeed.

Jane: Explain why I'm apparently invisible. Now.

Trope-tan: I would surmise that it's because you're not important enough.
Jane: Gee, thanks.

Trope-tan: Apparently, that plot hole sucked out practically all the narrativium in the comic.
Jane: So?
Trope-tan: Since you're not sufficiently important to the plot, you don't appear on-screen.

Trope-tan: But if we can increase your plot-relevance somehow...
Jane: Stop talking and do something!
Trope-tan: Okay, let's try this.

Trope-tan (imitating narrator): Oh no! It seems the orphanage is on fire! Only Jane can save the innocent orphans!

Jane: Burning orphanage was the best you could come up with?

Trope-tan: Hey, it was either that or "The Dark Lord Azeroth is eating babies! Only Jane can render the babies insufficently delicious to eat!"
Jane: Fantastic.
