Hey y’all, I got great news! I’m going to be at PAX PRIME!

The fine folks at Kickstarter invited me to their PAX Prime table to hang out with some other talented folks who funded their games with Kickstarter! How exciting! I’ve never been to PAX before, so I’m really excited!

So if you’re going to be at PAX stop by the Kickstarter booth and maybe pick up a copy of Borogove? That would be cool. :) :)


Wait… She’s mad because Lily continuously visits her store without buying anything, but when she finally does decide to buy something, she refuses to sell it to her?

So, how does the plot develop from here? It’s not the sort of display case where she could reach in and snatch the talisman if Madame U opened it to, say, sell her that competitively-priced geode. Maybe, with Madame U’s mercenary nature, she’s just waiting for a suitable offer…

– “I’ll give you five hundred, then.”
– “Done! Just don’t say I didn’t warn you.”

Or maybe she’ll go for the old stratagem…

– “Hey, Ike! If I give you 250 quid, will you go into Prester John’s and buy that bugbear talisman that’s in the counter cabinet for me?”

That’s like… $400. Lily has money to burn.

Or, alternatively, the reason she has money to spend is because she comes into Madame U’s shop all the time and sees all the stuff she wants to buy, sets money aside, and forgets about it.

Is it me, or in the second to last panel does Madame U look like Captain Picard?

Her face seems to hover somewhere between Captain Picard and Magneto (aka Patrick Stewart and Ian McClellan)through the whole comic.

Aaand now all of her lines are being read with Patrick Stewart’s voice In my head. :)

August 3, 2017 bing search says 250.00 British pounds sterling equals 328.28 USA dollars. Maybe the exchange rate changed in five years (since diTaykan’s comment), or Gorgon lady changes prices if she dislikes a customer. I’m still not clear on the morals of Kory’s beast people.
