Well Kin... that's not quite what I expected you to write... but I guess even you can overlook some things. X.X

Seeing as how she normally gets extremely wordy when she's nervous, I kind of expected a more egregiously lengthy note. Perhaps with her still forgetting to write her name.

That said, I really thought Kin's expressions on this page are adorable.

Perhaps she is less nervous and moreso simply excited. Its going to be interesting to see how this play out.

Kin! Look to your right! Just turn around and look! It looks like a sewed shut mouth. Is that rope there? Cut that goddamn rope!!!

If she had a proper cutting tool, she probably would have tried that already.

As for Kin's tick, that only applies to speech, which I believe is handled by a different section of the brain from writing.

I don't know if that's funny, or heartbreaking.
Hey, I'm writing something. Check it out.

Well, here's hoping MinMax (or the at least one of the goblins) is curious enough to find out the 'who' to try and get through the wall...

Also, it's lovely to see Fumbles still fumbling, when he tries to catch the bit of paper. :)

At least it makes for much better writing than if she had throught to include her name.
For her point it is all about finding Minmax. So of course she was not thinking much about it all.

And forgot that he may not expect to be searched for by herself.


And if the Paperdragon is pooping paper stating "I am Kin", I am sure Minmax will mistake Parchment for an enchanted Kin, and start a quest to re-transform her into a Serpentfolk (instead of hacking at the crack in the wall).

I'd say it's heartbreakingly funny.

Really, IMO, it's neither. This update, and the "forgot my name" thing, was severely disappointing.

Also, can anyone explain to me how she can see and hear that much through such a tiny crack that is that high up?

She would have said "It's I." She would never say "It's me."
The old name was Twocoo. The avatar is the scariest thing in Wizardry I, circa 1981.

Krulle, Thaco already corrected him about where the paper came from.

When has Kin ever spoken...like that?

The room seems to be made of sandstone, which I think echos well enough; I don't think she sees much, probably just enough to identify Minmax's faaabulous armor/bald head and that he's surrounded by similarly colorful shorties.

Ha, ha, ha. She has trouble verbilizing when she can't hear herself talk. Also, she addressed the note to MinMax, whom she knows can't read. And it's hilarious that the goblins can. It would have been even more hilarious if none of them could read. (Serioulsy, goblins don't strike me as having much use for writing.)

Are we going to get a very delayed character reaction to Chief's death once Kin gets down to the goblins?

Actually, yeah, it's been ages in real life but in the comic Chief's death is still pretty recent. Once the group settles down or clears the dungeon, I'd like to see some follow up on that. They never really had a proper moment to mourn him.

I think that counts for two critical fumbles, within the party, what does that mean?

They might think it's Kore, who perhaps can't lie, and thus wouldn't write a name but try to get them to release him.

But Kin smacking her head with a metal arm is bound to hurt Minmax too, so maybe they can figure it out from that.

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.

People do stupid things when they are in love. :) And in a hurry. Though I don't understand why she only started to write when Parchment brought them back to the slit, I mean she could have started to compose a message right after she sent him after MM and the GAP.

She's smart, but I don't think being smart exempts her from making mistakes. Mistakes are just that, something you don't intend to do but you do it anyways.
