Issue Four page 4


I’m guessing it’s a bit like trying to explain exactly what a particle accelerator Does, and what they’re using it for to, say, my Mum. There’s nothing more fun than trying to explain something complicated to someone who really doesn’t get it.

Particularly when you don’t fully understand it either. This sounds like someone who knows the basic uses of a computer trying to explain not only HOW a computer works, but WHY, and to someone that expects him to know everything just because he knows more than they do.

An ignorant person is someone who has just found out what you already know
– Will Rogers

And an expert is someone who already knew what you have just found out

Lol I bet this to prevent all the readers from asking these same questions.
I just go along with it like Jim does…

I agree…My imagination thinks that their clothing is stored in a magical closet floating somewhere in the universe…My imagination does not make sense…

Not all that far-fetched from a scientific standpoint.
Well, theoretical science notwithstanding, but it’s still theoretically possible!

Tim: “Look, all you have to know is that it isn’t a transformation; it’s just identical to one in every conceivable way to the point where there is no viable explanation for it being anything else. It’s just like what happens when the author of a story REALLY INSISTS on abusing terminology that is clearly improper for the topic because it evokes the emotional connotations she wants – it’s best to separate the data from the premise and move on.”

    This was my collection of medallions, until very recently… I noticed my keychain felt lighter than usual, and sure enough the fob that I kept them all on was gone. No luck finding it so far. I’m looking in your store and not seeing most of these, is there any way to replace them? Maybe even a secondary market, if you know of one?

    Oh no, that stinks, I’m sorry! I hope you can find them back!

    Unfortunately the all-copper medallions are out of print and I probably won’t remake them like that anymore. If they do get remade they’ll have color on them, like the others. Same story with the nixie medallion. I need to do inventory on the white stags to see if I have any left, but I will probably be reordering those because they are popular. And bugbears are always in stock at my store! Send me a message on Patreon and I can sell you a bandersnatch medallion for cheap, even though those aren’t in the store.
