Is it just me or does this not... fit with her character? Yuan-ti are exceptionally intelligent. There's no way she would have forgotten to do that. I'm not going to say a change in personality due to multiple Maze of Many runs would be responsible for this oversight.

That grin of hers in panel 6 is slightly unsettling.
I'm clever. Like really, really, clever. That means I'm right about 90% of the time, but when I'm wrong, or make a mistake, good gods, you wonder how I managed to survive childhood. This strikes me as one of those things, with Kin. 90% of the time, Kin is the smartest person in the room, but when she goofs, she really poops the bed.

Case in point: Suggesting there can be any overlap between "the greater good" and "murder children" is, I dare say, a nastier first impression than my sour moods. If someone were to start reading from the moment she peered through the crack, they'd take her for the adorkable klutz girl from every mediocre romantic comedy. While there's some truth to that, it's not a contradiction with her genius status because nobody is perfect.

I might be stupid for asking this, but does Kin know that Minmax can't read? She wasn't around when I remember it being discussed, very early in the comic, and after the necklace was obliviated, she might not even remember that he can't spell.

Kin, Forgath, and Minmax must have spent much longer together than what is shown in the comic, and she seems well aware of his lack of language skills (Go Boom!). So my guess is yes. They walked to the Maze of Many from Brassmoon. These are on the map but I'm not sure of the map scale. I would guess it's less than a day, but they didn't leave Brassmoon and head for the maze, they just got away as fast as possible, and if they went the opposite direction they would have to circle well past Brassmoon to go back. They walked to where ever they made camp and spent at least one night together (Kin's birthday). It's not clear how long it takes to walk the Maze of Many but I think it was less than one day. You might expect them to get some sort of supplies before they his the maze. And finally, there were quite a few things written in the maze, so it may have come up when we didn't see it.

I am always struck whenever someone makes a back reference or links to an old page, by how incredibly slow this comic progresses. That page is from 5 years ago.

Thank you, Forgets.

I suppose that means she assumed his company has someone who can read. It doesn't seem like she's deduced that he isn't with Forgath, (or at least, if she has she hasn't reacted to it) but how likely is it that she recognizes any of the GAP's voices?

Somewhere else in the comic it says that the default for their edition (3.5?) is for everyone to read. Minmax traded it for...I forget. There are so many things Minmax can't do.

My guess is "+1 to hit". Along with the ability to rhyme on purpose, or something like that.

You're right the first time. I forget what he traded away his rhyming for.

Winking.
About that page, is it only for me or is there a few (incomplete) lines of pixel messed up?

Unfortunately @Bapuvitttssf I think it's time for you to replace your monitor. But you say it only happens on that one screen?

Thanks for your replies.
Strange... I tried with other browsers and they don't display the error.
Only with Firefox can I see this glitch (and yes, it appears only on this page AFAIK).
Well, if it is only on my end, no need to speak more of that.

Somewhere in the depths of Firefox there is an option to turn hardware acceleration on and off. Try toggling that.

The next question would be whether the problem is something to do with hardware or Firefox. If the problem goes away you probably just have to watch for similar problems.

If her tail is resistant to crossbow bolts, would it crack a thin bit of rock. Doubt it.

That seems to be related indeed, thanks. I'll be sure to check for more problems.
Well, enough with the off-topic, I guess.
