That it was far removed was apart of why I was, at risk of exaggeration, bothered; but you make a fair point.

Not only was it blue, it was also magic and therefore impossible to cut without a magic blade. But the real clincher is even if they used the Kinslayer or Oblivious, it's allegedly an explosive as well and the blast radius is probably the only lie there. Even without knowing to look for this particular page, you could just search through the archive to see how commonly appearing things look(ed). That's kind of what it's for.

Just Karen, as the one to reference the term to begin with, maybe I don't need the entire life story of it? Red Feather was just making a reference too obscure to work is all, and now I'm wondering if there's any truth to Generic's confusing suggestion.
:lol: You know there's more people on here than just the three of you, right? I found the explanation illuminating - I wasn't aware of the term. It seems irrelevant to the comic, but there you go I guess. :roll:
I suspect that he's angry over the explanation because a transphobic term being explained in a calm, factual manner prevents him from attacking the explainer as an "oversensitive SJW".
That's uncalled for. Cut it out.

Far be it from me to presume that somebody is speaking to the person they quoted; I guess that makes me "alt-right" too, right? *Rude advise deleted; thank you, Generic.*

No anger at all. I was making a very tiny joke, which wasn't very funny in the first place, and which clearly failed in the execution. More than happy to drop it.

Not sure why I just noticed that Mixmax has different gloves on his hands after all this time. Is there a reason his fingers are sticking out on his left one or is it just for fashion?

I just took it as Thunt loving asymmetry, although it could allow Minmax to lose a finger(s) in the future.

For some reason I thought it was for a bow. I know that's ridiculous, as he hasn't got a bow, but that's just what stuck in my mind.

When worn by a left-handed person, the exposed fingers would be the ones to grasp the arrow's tail. I can say from my experience with gloves, they always get in the way of feeling things. So you could be onto something, and maybe a part of the armor's magic allows the gloves to be switched somehow.

So unsure if anyone else noticed or if it will even matter, but am I right in noticing that the tumbleblade has one of its light ups lit? Just curious is all.

You're correct, and we can see that Complains was forced into a tumble when Minmax pushed him.

Yeah but i thought that it was only on a successful check and to me it looks like he fell so i was surprised i suppose.

Correct again, but this WAS a successful check, after being pushed. Complains capitalized on his loss of balance by tumbling, probably for the bonus to better threaten Minmax on the next page.

There is something that is green and stringy that has significant importance between the two of them.

Correction. There never was anything green and stringy with any importance between the two.

The string portion of the KEN necklace is shown to be green and stringy.

You know, the thing the same necklace that was dropped into oblivion.

And could explain why she is now coming after him if she recovered it and the memories.

Kin exposited when she first got here that she doesn't know the significance of the letters in her I.M.E., which is a clear indication that the necklace remains forgotten. She doesn't need memories of the gift, only of their shared pain as proof of true-sight.

Also, I distinctly remember we were all speculating what magic-using class she has taken up AFTER that page, which is an embarrassing lack of reading comprehension for all of us.

The necklace is also a darker shade of green, and we can tell from Minmax & Complains' I.M.E.s consistently being slightly different shades of purple that Thunt is a stickler for that.

Yes. The necklace was green and stringy. This is a strand of hair though.

If she recovers the necklace and or her memories thereof, she has resolved and nullified everything that happened in the mace of many apart from people getting some loot/indestructable body parts. Off screen.

Well then either I don't remember you correcting the multiple people who were apart of the speculation, or you weren't even there. Either way, it's safe to say there's a flaw in my wording.

I've been looking over the threads regarding the fog-room and with three to go before Kore is made a chump, I see no such misconception yet on myself or anyone else. That's what I get for entering the Twilight Zone!
