    Seriously, even with the Advantage system as it was pre-East, one of our group still died. Thornwatch is not a cakewalk.

    What a superstar has foreign politics lost in Gabe, he would be a (se)real killer in that job.

    Strongly considering a new avatar after that last panel.

    What with her suicide after reading his "notes", and the look of abject fear teased but laregly unseen in this strip (profile), me thinks Jamie might actually be afraid of Mike, and his only outlet for the subtle clues he gets is illustrative.

    For the record, I went to Hollywood Upstairs Psychology Academy.

    I hate every ape I see, from chimpan-a to chimpanzee.

    After reading the comic my mind replaced Gabe with The Joker. Gives it a few more levels of crazy.

    Nah, at least he is a man of his word and quite sane. Gabe is a man of his ever changing madness, he really needs that inflatable spider man.

    If the news post doesn't refer to the Zoe Quinn debacle that's been going on for the past couple days, I will be authentically surprised.

    I expect that the woman *did* pick up on hesitance/reluctance from the crew.

    Unlike the woman, however, I don't see it as 'fear of Gabe' but 'fear of hurting Gabe'.

    Gabe has created a game over many hours as a matter of laborious work; it's a baby. The others may be right, BUT, they should be nervous about telling Gabe that they don't like aspects of his game. That's etiquette 101.

    I may be 'right' in an objective sense, but I need to consider the feelings of the person most invested; in this case, that's Gabe, the creator. I think that what the woman was really seeing was politeness, patience, and caution on the parts of Jamie/Kiko/etc, and that is exactly what she should be seeing.

    I don't know, man. I think we've all come to realize the best way to honor Mike's baby is to fight to the death over it.

    If that is so, then this is very simple. Creator is the creator and others are just bystanders, watchers and commenters. No reason to snap'n' bite.

    But it really seems here that they all have their seed in this baby. Thats when one could expect the bitings and knives to fly as so vividly described.

    Jamie: I was just imagining though that you were all being... cautious, perhaps, in expressing yourselves, out of a sense of politeness towards your delicate and sensitive overlord, although I may have been incorrect ;-)

    Jamie, blink twice if you're being held against your will. :)

    I'm off to pirate more music, steal software, and knock down little old ladies, then later I'm going to cover my self in Yak's blood, and lay in a pentagram, while reading some Marxist literature and praying to a heathen god.

    Nonsense!

    I think Corgi is a pretty cool gal. Seh does prootcol and doesnt afraid of anything.

    Can someone explain the 'Advantage' system mentioned in the comic? I've been trying to keep up with Thornwatch, but I'm not really sure what it actually is...

    Also, any idea whether Thornwatch will be coming to PAX Australia?
