The DM of the Rings

This is from "Twenty Sided" the new blog on my sidebar.

It's a comic, but the panel images are stills from Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings" movies, and the dialog is a sort of "what if this were an AD&D campaign?" thing. It's kind of disappointing to discover that my high school AD&D group wasn't as unique as we thought.

How very bizzare.

I have been having minor spasms all evening.

Not in a leg or arm.

Not a facial tic.

I have been having spasms in the tip of my nose.

Weird? You bet.

It's not a particularly unpleasant feeling. Kind of, well, crinkly is the only word I can think of that comes close.

I beat Reflections!

I solved level 25 of Reflections today. I still think level 23 was the hardest.

On that note: The attempted solution shown in an earlier post is way, way off.

A few levels seem to have multiple possible solutions, some of which don't require all the pieces you are given.
