Before you click through to the actual legible comic you may want some context!
SO WE’RE TRYING TO FIX THE SHRINE TO MIND MAGIC. It’s been vandalised/corrupted by some vandals who are trying to make our lives difficult. But being the shrine of mind, it is full of tricks and puzzles.
There was one locked door we hit where there were four platforms beside it, and an inscription above them that read:
He who has on earth, has not in heaven
He who dances on earth, dances not in heaven
He who sings on earth, sings not in heaven
But he who offers prays on earth to the Lord shall be blessed now and forever onward.
idk why there is a typo in this inscription on a wall
BUT ANYWAY after much pondering we finally figured out we had to stand on these platforms, correlating to each line of the inscription — Asher stood on the first, Fuu on the second (‘cause she used to dance), Lord Thaydin was reluctantly talked into standing on the third (“I can’t sing.” “Stand there anyway. It doesn’t say sing well.”) and Yin obviously took the praying one at the end. We ended up all being compelled (oh, shrine of MIND MAGIC, right) to fulfill the various things and then had them taken from us - Asher’s stuff disappeared, Lord Thaydin lost his voice, and Fuu couldn’t move, BUT YIN WAS DANDY since he was the praying dude. He was able to unlock the door, and his touch was able to fix each of our new problems.
He decided to do this by gently touching Fuu’s head, grabbing my necromancer by the throat, and giving Asher a high-five. Lord Thaydin was understandably alarmed by his methods.
Zim and I imagined the the party discussing this afterwards, and then I had to make a comic about it, which we have both decided is 100% what actually happened while walking to the next room.
Neither one of our characters slept last night and I think it shows.
