I guess the Dudley mimicking mimic dropped a spellbook of wizard lock, right?

#2 STL Tue, 2 Mar 2010 03:01:03
Or it started mimicking a door.

#3 Quint Tue, 2 Mar 2010 04:53:19
I hereby decree that spellbooks of wizard lock should always have the same color as closed doors.

"You now prefer mimicking a human again."

Who does what now?

Sorceror: that is the message given after you eat a mimic corpse and you change back into your true form. In this case, a human.

Whoops. Double post. Curse the back button.

BreathOfSorrows, well aware of that; but is the comic from the perspective of Mimicley or who or what or where or when or why or how or watermelon?

Oh, never mind, I see what's going on. For some reason I didn't notice the pile of Dudleygold before (but I'll leave the watermelon train of thought above because it's AWESOME). I'm not so sure that Mimicley wouldn't be upset about Dudley eating one of his kin though ...

Sorceror, your watermelon train of thought comment gets an E. It made me chuckle.

#10 Sorceror Tue, 2 Mar 2010 23:36:45
Glad I could help.

The appearance of Asidonhopo in the hall made me laugh. G.

I like to think of him as Acid Don Ho...Po. And imagine him playing distorted electric uke.
