I’m finally posting the latest page! Sorry for the delay!
One of the ubiquitous things about the Richie Rich cartoon. No matter how bleak the situation, no matter where on earth, Cadbury always arrived at 2 o,clock with afternoon Tea…
Thorin, do you have and in-depth knowledge of all media references, or is it limited to a timeframe, etc.?
You know, I’m not really sure. Stuff just seems to stick in my head. Other stuff doesn’t. No one in my family will play Trivial Pursuit with me though…
I don’t understand. Why would you not bring the tea service?
I’m tempted to change Godfrey’s dialog to “Why would I NOT bring the tea service?”
Nah. The original dialog is funnier.
You might want to change “Godfrey, this is indentical to the ship’s tea set.”, though …
What should I change it to? I’m open to suggestions.
Something very, very similar. Almost identical, in fact.
Hey, Charlotte decided to wear her shoes after all, regardless of where the junior troll was carrying them!
Would you believe me if I said that was entirely accidental? As in: I drew the shoes without remembering she was barefoot.
Shhh! You’re not supposed to tell them that! You planned it all along. Charlie is independent, she can put her shoes back on any time she wants!
OK. Done and done. The shoes were entirely intentional all along!
Philo: How do you know you’re *not* in the tropics?
Charlie: Shame on you! Don’t you know you should never feed a troll?
I also suspect that sunlight is required for tea plant growth. Just a theory.
Well, that raises the question: where’s the light down here coming from?
In any underground adventure, bioluminescent fungus and moss is the go to explanation for underground visibility. Also, that massive fire there could have something to do with it.
I’m leaning toward millions of glowing crystals embedded in the rock.
Didn’t Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Hollow Earth have a mini sun inside? I know some rpgs have it so it is always “day” inside.
“Charlotte, no! Don’t feed the Troll Boy! Now he’s just going to follow us home.”
Good guess, HumalaDuck.
Good ol’ Godfrey, ever the gentleman’s gentleman. Hope we see the rest of the gang soon I miss Alice.
But will you still when she’s 10 feet tall?
Oooo, very good Yakumo, LOL when I read that. Hmm, wonder what Philo would do if he met a 10′ Alice. XD
I think you did, but did you catch the reference jsfury?
Jefferson Airplane, if I’m not mistaking.
I believe you’re correct. Sorry for the late response.
Alice returns in Chapter 4. Roddy returns in Chapter 6. Chapter 5 has someone new, though familiar.
Good, looking forward to the new pages as they come out. Are we still on chapter one?
Ouch. (Hangs head in shame)
With Charlie picking up the the feminist ball, I have to wonder, would Alice consider the troll women better or worse off in this deal? And yeah, Alice is not quite a feminist, but she would definitely have Views about the women of the tribe being sold off.
“If these menfolk would so undervalue their women that they would sell them for kitchenware, then those women *deserve* being owned by men who will appreciate them. Er…hang onnnn! That can’t be right. Does that sound right to anybody else?”
Perhaps the “owned” part is a little over the top.
Oh, all right then. I’m just going to flat out come out and say it, ‘identical’ is spelled wrong on this page, it’s written as ‘indentical’ instead.
Ooops! Reparations will be forthcoming.
… as well as some sort of award, I believe is standard practice in this sort of situation … ?
(I’d meant to replace the offending text altogether, and only now got around to doing it.)
Thank you! I’d been hanging out for one of these for ages. The dialogue is suspiciously dissimilar to what used to be there before, though …
