    "of of" typo?

    Second Frame, Tycho's second Line; "What percentage of a living body is comprised of OF liquid?" May want to be touched up for a repost.

    That minor caveat aside.....

    Fantastic as always guys.

    The ability only works on "unattended" liquids. It has no direct effect on adventurers.

    I'll forgive you because you're new to Pathfinder.

    :P

    Magical liquids, such as potions get a save as per the rules. I assume they are exaggerating here for comedic effect. (I chuckled).

    No it doesn't.

    What does unattended liquids mean? I have never actively attended any percentage of liquids in my body, with the possible exception of using the restroom.

    Maybe you can resist the power's effect by thinking "I am made of liquid I am made of liquid I am made of liquid" really hard? Of course, that would make it's game mechanic a Will save or die.

    Desert Thirst (Su)

    A blue dragon can cast create water at will (CL equals its HD). Alternatively, it can destroy an equal amount of liquid in a 10-foot burst. Unattended liquids are instantly reduced to sand. Liquid-based magic items (such as potions) and items in a creature's possession must succeed on a Will save. The save DC is Charisma-based.

    See that is the great thing about Pathfinder. The ENTIRE game is free online. And legally so.

    This comic (and the discussion which followed the last one) are kind of making me glad I don't play D&D.

    Isn't that predicated under the assumption that liquid based magic items use water as the solvent?

    This. This is a good comic.

    Gabe's facial expression in the last panel is perfect. And the whispered comments from Tycho in the first.

    Kind of sick of these tablegame comics. Color me not interested.

    Also, it's the morning and I need coffee. Rawr.

    P.S. I love you

    It could be argued that a character's body is an item in his/her possession. Could, and I believe should.

    Hehe. I'd argue that. However, I wonder if he would consider an Alchemist of high level to be a "Potion". LOL

    Figured since we're on the topic of Pathfinder I'd bring up the newest news from Paizo.

    Pathfinder Online was just announced to be starting dev. a couple of weeks ago: https://goblinworks.com/

    The company so far is composed of Paizo staff as well as some programmers/staff from EVE Online and a couple of other A list MMOs.

    I'll bite the troll that feeds me. Why not?

    I think it says "liquid" because if it were just "water" or "water-based-liquids", then that would be an enormous pain in the neck to adjudicate. You'd have to keep track of every liquid in existence and know its properties. It's best to just say "it works because it's magic" and be done with it, especially to maintain the general usefulness of the ability.

    Yeah, I think your body-liquid would need to pass a Will save, using that description.

    Relax. I perfectly understand that the power is worded that way because otherwise it would be an untenable mess. I was wondering more what would happen if you the power worked exactly how it would. Think of the possibilities:
    200 Proof Alcohol
    Dehydrated Potion-Just add water
    Dehydrated Food-Just add water
    Clothes Dryers
