K Well, this is a pretty % we've got ourselves into. Izchak's been murdered, and our only witness is blind.

K Sir, I was looking through the Shop's tax receipts over the past 1000000 turns, and look. 500000 turns ago, in a different game, he sold 4 lamps for 50 zm apiece.

K They must have been magic! But why was he murdered now? Nothing was taken, and there were no magical items. Was the murderer stunned? Was Izchak witness to another crime? Or was Izchak involved in something shady?

Why did the colors change from panel 2 to panel 3?

#2 Sorceror Mon, 14 Nov 2011 23:31:57
Because LAZY.

#3 tahujdt Thu, 17 Nov 2011 21:12:52
The colors changed because the % sign is the mimic.

#4 anther Sat, 19 Nov 2011 06:51:21
I could believe that if that were the only color that had changed...

#5 xCheckPoint Mon, 28 Nov 2011 07:19:26
I could ignore that if only the comic would change...

#6 anther Mon, 28 Nov 2011 10:23:50
True that. I do rather like this little storylet so far.

#7 XandersolTehEpic Mon, 28 Nov 2011 23:00:16
Does anyone know what is going on with the other site? I can only reach it through the wiki, and it's been like that for almost two months.

#8 Slandor Tue, 29 Nov 2011 15:55:46
I can get to the other site fine.

#9 Anonymous Wed, 30 Nov 2011 18:28:20
Yeah, other site works fine.

#10 XandersolTehEpic Wed, 30 Nov 2011 23:04:58
Huh. Then never mind.

P.S:"Holy q"? How do baluchitheria factor into this?

Xandersol: That's a cow.

"The colors changed because the % sign is the mimic."

Since when do mimics change object when not disturbed?

#13 anther Mon, 5 Dec 2011 23:29:34
Theoretically, mimics could change object any time they want. We just never see this because they don't want to draw attention to themselves.

However, since everyone there knows that's a mimic already (or at least I would assume they do), there's nothing to stop it from changing form if it so desires.

Which it probably should, if it's mimicking a donut amongst a bunch of Kops.

#14 XandersolTehEpic Tue, 6 Dec 2011 22:52:41
Maybe the other objects are mimic hit men, trying to kill the witness.

#15 tahujdt Thu, 8 Dec 2011 12:23:25
Thanks, XTE, that's a good idea.

#16 tahujdt Thu, 8 Dec 2011 12:26:02
Sorry for not posting yet. A combination of Thanksgiving, school, stomach flu, and a terminal addiction to Dwarf Fortress(think YASD times 50) have kept me from posting.

#17 anther Sat, 10 Dec 2011 01:56:57
Xandersol: And the doppelgangers are in on it too? (Green @, white @)

#18 tahujdt Sun, 11 Dec 2011 11:22:26
The @s haven't changed color, just moved.

#19 tahujdt Sun, 18 Dec 2011 21:06:24
Sorry if this arc isn't too funny, I just wanted to do a detective story.

Oops, I pulled a Xandersol

#22 XandersolTehEpic Wed, 21 Dec 2011 17:20:50
Wait, by that do you mean you made a double post, or that you put a lot of posts on your own strip? 'Cause I do both. Often.

#23 tahujdt Wed, 21 Dec 2011 23:25:53
The double post.

By the way, I have posted my next strip, it just isn't up yet. (The villain gets revealed.)
