Nah, seems more purple.

Blue-gray? (Or purple-gray?) That background mountain on the far left is definitely in color on my browser.

My browser to. Iodine gass purple.
My current theory is that waveney is trying to trick us by saying that it should have been grey and it will kill all Beanies.

Pagepope.
Decree: come up with strange and weird theories where the Beanie story is going. Bonis points for death and dismemberment.

I hope it's not the volcano. Volcanoes are scary enough when stationary.

I have some vague memory from my childhood about an island volcano that was actually an awesome moving hideout. The characters may or may not have been molpies. I may or may not have made this up.

Aha: It was Noah's Island.

And it's as awesome as I remember, and more than a little RELATED.

ETA for pope: it's totally Noah's island. Since the animals are there to escape humans, and include bearmolpies and rhinolpies, death and dismemberment are inevitable.

There's nothing wrong with using the Hotdog for non Hotdog purposes, just stay away from newpixbots if you want to avoid complications.

O wowterful for blank white skies,
And pix from waveney's brain,
For purple mountain majesties...

And waveney good then understood

I just discovered that I've reached a point in the Hotdog such that I don't need any glass ceilings at all for infinite sand rate, which means all sorts of good things for crates and tool production... :D

It shouldn't be but I believe you. I blame paint.

Future Beany ONG chapters will be produced in GIMP - I downloaded it a couple of days ago and I am slowly getting the hang of it. I only know the start of chapter 3 and have no idea where to take it yet.

Don't worry - just remember, even Time had mustard :o
I'm sure nobody will mind waiting for you to learn how to GIMP :D

I haven't done proper ketchup yet, but I've been thinking of a page like this for a while, something like "OTT Resources" (or some other name) where we can put things like the panoramas, sea-level graphs, molpy-hunting gifs, height analyses, etc. that aren't really manips but rather resources that help(ed) OTTers gain a deeper understanding of Time.

Okay, I finally made this page (mostly because I wasn't sure where to put my raptorcat comparison). It's still getting filled: OTT Resources

I've gathered images from the first 300 newpages of the OTT so far. Sadly, some old OTT resources are missing. The earliest sea-rise images by mscha were saved to Dropbox instead of the OTT, and the links no longer work. :(

If you know of any images that fit the category, please feel free to add them!

Nah, seems more purple. Might it be a iodine gas cloud? That means the temp is above 184°C (363°F) and thus not a good place to be in. The cloud will probably roll over Isle d'If and kill all Beanies. Thus end the Beanies.

Good to see old Neil back.

Thanks, it felt good to predict horrible death to our heroes again. I think I'll make it daily again for the duration of the Beanies frames.

I know there are machines, and hired chirpsters, but it wasn't actually the song, right? (I can't remember the backing track - was it the same as the copyrighted one?) Should the machines have been able to have flagged it? Oh well. Sad.

Yeah, that's the thing, the backing track wasn't made by me, I just found it. And while I don't know whether or not it was official, it was super accurate to the original. And since my vocal parts followed the same tune as the original as well, it would probably be similar enough for a machine to pick it up.

Ah, fair enough then.
Glad I heard it when I did.
..and downloaded. A good thing about slow internet is the requirement to download for listening/watching later. I should have it here somewhere...

P.S. Stupid Disney. They wouldn't have many characters without "borrowing", especially including Pooh. *shakes head* *tisks*

Well, of course I have it somewhere... so I've dropbox'd it for anyone who wants it.

Sorry, Outside is attacking me. Big deadline at work, so of course my boss approved training for half the team. Really not in the mood to be yelled at for not doing what I don't know needs done. Even better, I got yelled at because someone else didn't do what I reminded him to do two weeks ago, and he said he didn't need it done. Turns out he was wrong, but somehow it is me that is in trouble.

Bacon magically transforms everything it touches into edible foodstuffs, so that would probably work.

I don't remember seeing the newest OtherComic being ottified, so here's my take on it:

I think they steered around it.

Some are OTTifying, some are Hotdogging, others are Blitzing, many are doing a combination.

Speaking of Hotdog matters,

Code: Select all

## 2.898
- ONG performance increase - less looping on destruction
- Prevent fractional glass chips/blocks in storage, and prevent fractional size upgrades
- Larger upgrade increments for Sand Refinery and Glass Chiller (finally!)
- Glass Extruder was missing punctuation
- Buffed TFLL a little
- BG buffed a little also (it's not meant to be particularly powerful)

That should be the last of the 2.89s, now on to 2.9 :D :D

The Dark Lord

Chapter 1 - 2 - 3 - 4

Gurrin, loyal Molpy of the Dark Lord, opened his eyes to see the Sea¹ in front of him, and beyond it the sky, black and filled with stars.

As he slowly came out of his comatose state, he became aware of the sound of soft crying somewhere nearby.

"So, you're awake," said a gruff voice to his left.

He turned his head that way, and immediately regretted doing so, as pain shot through his skull.

Another Molpy stood there, crouched low in the sand, staring hard at Gurrin.

"Just so you know," said the other Molpy, "I'd bite you in the throat right now if it were my choice, but LaPetite says we don't kill unless we have no other choice."

Spoiler:
Gurrin tried to stand up and found that his back right leg would not move. Pain also filled his head again. He collapsed back onto the sand.

"You won't be getting away, though," said the other Molpy. "Turazal and I are making sure of that."

Gurrin grunted.

"Turazal, watch him while I go tell LaPetite he's awake," said the Molpy. He turned and marched away from Gurrin. Gurrin followed him with his eyes as he walked over to a small human figure kneeling in the sand. She was the one weeping, holding her beret in her hands and twisting it back and forth.

"She's crying over the grave of the Molpy killed in the battle," said a voice behind him -- Turazal. "Antlem, my comrade... killed by one of your comrades."

The other Molpy was speaking quietly to LaPetite. The girl didn't look up, but said softly, "Take him into the castle."

The Molpy began walking back to Gurrin. "Segla!" he called. "We need some help."

Another Molpy, a female, joined him and Turazal.

"LaPetite says to move him inside," said the Molpy. "We'll have to carry him. He can't walk."

The three Molpies lifted Gurrin up from the sand and carried him through the Sandcastle gate.

They laid him down in a corner.

"Makarga?" called LaPetite.

"Yes, milady?" the first Molpy called back.

"Figure out what's wrong with his leg."

Makarga moved to Gurrin's backside and lifted his body again.

"Well, that's easy," he said to the other Molpies. "It's broken." He raised his voice and called to LaPetite, "It's broken!"

"Fix it," she called back.

Makarga grunted. "If it were up to me I'd break the other three," he muttered. "Alright, you two help me set the bone."

The three Molpies were not very careful as they maneuvered Gurrin's leg bone back into place. He gave a yelp. The process was completed quickly, leaving Gurrin moaning in pain.

Segla went away and returned with a strip of cloth. She tied it tightly around Gurrin's leg.

"Okay, that's done," said Makarga. "Turazal and I will keep watching him."

Segla began walking away.

"Segla!" Makarga called after her. "See if you can get LaPetite to come inside and sleep. She needs it."

Segla nodded and left the castle.

The other two settled on either side of Gurrin to keep watch... as if there was any chance of him escaping.

"I'm worried about the rising Sea¹," said Makarga.

"Yeah, LaPetite can't keep building farther up forever," said Turazal.

"Hey, you," Makarga nudged Gurrin. "Your Dark Lord wouldn't have anything to do with the Sea¹ rising, would he?"

"I might have heard something about it," Gurrin muttered.

"I think LaPetite is planning something with that platform," said Makarga, pointing upward. Gurrin lifted his head -- it was getting less painful -- and saw that, though the Sandcastle had no roof, there was something blocking his view of the sky.

"What could she do, turn it into a raft?" said Turazal.

"Maybe," said Makarga.

"But would that be a good idea?" said Turazal. "It might just float out to Sea -- with her on it!"

"Yes," said Makarga. "We'll have to be there to keep that from happening."

They fell silent for a long while. Gurrin was starting to fall asleep when Turazal spoke again. "What do we do about... him?"

"Don't know," said Makarga. "Can't let him go back to his master -- we're outnumbered already. I'd kill him if LaPetite would let me."

"Hmm," said Turazal.

"It'll be a lot harder to guard him once his leg heals."

"Could we build a cage of some sort?"

"Maybe."

There was silence again.

"Really," said Makarga, "the best thing would be for LaPetite to go back to her people. The Sea is no place for a girl her age when the Dark Lord is stirring."

"Remember the tales of ancient times -- when a Halfling went alone into the land of the second Dark Lord to save the world back then?" said Turazal.

"He was just small, not a young child," said Makarga.

"Yeah."

The two fell silent again, and Gurrin drifted off to sleep.

They should now all be fixed. (Here, most on page 1, and a few on pages 2 and 3. Look for ETfix image URL.)

Yay! Thanks, mscha! :) I hadn't realized how many of these you made - they were a major part of the OTT analysis in the early dips!
