I don't have the slightest idea of what's going on, but I like it.

I'm clearly in the wrong place too.

#3 DrSunglass Mon, 23 Mar 2009 05:05:14
I will reserve judgment pending an explanation.

#4 TobyBartels Mon, 23 Mar 2009 07:25:43
Google ‘Executus’ to get an idea. But it's not my thing, so I can't tell you more.

#5 ctaboir Mon, 23 Mar 2009 08:21:03
And even traps are wrong on 1

#6 Thvor Mon, 23 Mar 2009 13:39:28
I'm firmly in the wtf category as well...googling executus simply tells me that there's a WoW server by that name, but not much else.

If you're going to make a (semi?)obscure reference as the pun of your comic, can we please get a hint in a footnote?

#7 anther Mon, 23 Mar 2009 16:00:07
You pour a potion of acid all over the comic!

Edit: Well, I guess that's a little uncharitable. I mean, evidently it makes sense once you know what it's about... sort of.

I still don't really understand it, though.

Google also tells me that it's the name of some monster or something that you (I guess) fight.

http://www.wowhead.com/?npc=12018

So my guess is that this is a NetHack representation of the part of WoW leading up to that scene.

Yeah, footnotes help. Like, if my link above is a good one (and maybe it's not), then you could put that in the footnote.

Maybe like the final scene of Doom 2. (The hero has cleard earth from the bastards and leaves the last level by teleporting into their moon base. He dies pretty quickly.)

This is supposed to be a World of Warcraft reference - stumbles into another game. (A 40-man raid trying to kill a boss.) I tried to find the most recognizable moment from WoW, but still didn't quite make it.

It's also my first try. Next one will be better.

#11 blackened Thu, 26 Mar 2009 19:43:19
I have read all the comments and I still don't get it... But never mind, good luck next time!

#12 anther Tue, 31 Mar 2009 04:54:23
The most recognizable moment from WoW would probably be the corrupted blood incident. (I mean, I know what that is, and I won't touch WoW with a ten-foot pole.)

#13 Anonymous Thu, 28 Jan 2010 15:05:53
It's first episode of first Doom, not Doom 2!

P for having no idea what the joke is.
