    Wee Jas Favoritism

    Hi all -
    COMPLAINT TIME......did you see the WoG Comic main page? The icon section leading to the latest comic is of Wee Jas, that little tart. So this is some conspiracy - putting her sexy little tartness on the front page so that people will subconsciously vote for her. Well NO. I won't stand for this non-sense. Mort either puts Pholtus on the cover page or he does something else - but I will not stand (or sit at the desk and rant with my keyboard) for this crap.
    I didn't notice this in my last post or else I would have ranted in that post - but if this isn't changed, then I'm going to use my very delusional Theocratic powers on the WoG comic Web site and then you'll all be sorry. And trust me...we don't want that - because if we want Mort to go back 300 episodes, he needs all the support we can give him - but that won't be necessary if I don't get my way.

    Be Well. Be Well Pholtused.
    Theocrat Issak

    So? Sixteen picks, eh? A "winner" from each? Ok . . .

    Wee Jas, Kord, Norebo, Lendor, Zilchus, Heironeous, Fharlanghn, Oldamara, Zagyg, Mayaheine, Obad-hai, Pelor, Rao, Boccob (duh) and for my friend, the all powerful Theocrat -- Pholtus! Evil Grin

    The sixteenth pair is a coin toss, but I'll go with Wastri, since he seems to like humans. rolleyes

    Theocrat: Whoops! Hey other media don't get chided when they show their marquee talents. Would the PGA not show Tiger Woods for the Masters? Unthinkable! Well okay, thats a bad comparison but you get my drift.

    Mystic: Thanks for the entry. Good to see Theocrat has someone on his side. ;)

    Quick question here, Mort: Are we supposed to vote for our favorite deities, or which ones we honestly think would win?

    Also, you're mean for pitting Fharlanghn and Delleb against each other. I like them both, plus, they're buds!....ish.

    I voted for my favorites, Talin, if that helps any. Wink

    But that's just me . . . I root for my favorite "team." Evil Grin

    Talin: What Mystic said. There is no good way to gauge it. For example if Theocrat wants to start a drive to get Pholtus to win his bracket, more power to him. We know which are more popular in fandom, but online polls/contests can sometimes surprise ya.

    Starting a Drive

    Hi all -
    Oh, I'm not starting a drive for Pholtus to win...I'm pushing some threats here...Lets get that right, right now. I don't want no hussy tart winning when she shows some leg and Cleveland (yeah, that's what I call it so I don't get busted when looking at that sweet spot between the boo...oops).
    If you don't vote for Pholtus to win the whole damn tournament...there's going to be some damage done. Let Me Tell You. I'm not just ranting my delusional rants here....Pholtus will win, or you will all be damned...

    Be Well. Be Well in Cleveland!

    Alrighty...

    Wee Jas vs. Bralm: Wee Jas (Bralm? Seriously?)

    Kord vs. Vatun: Kord. Chaotic Good is more awesome than CN. Also, not trapped in some undisclosed location.

    Norebo vs. Syrul: Norebo. Fortune favors the bold...

    Lendor vs. Pyremius: Enh, I'll say Lendor, cuz he fathered a number of other deities for whom I'm casting my vote. But he's not really a riot at parties, I'd wager.

    Tharizdun vs. Olidammara: Olidamarra! Gee, do I cast vote for the being that will end EVERYTHING, or the charming cutie who just bought a round of drinks for everyone? This is a tough one.

    Incabulous vs. Boccob: Boccob. Boccob may not care, but that means he also doesn't care enough to go out of his way to spread disease and misery. This is a plus in my book. Also, I dig the art for him in Deities & Demigods.

    Zagyg vs. St. Cuthbert: Zagyg. Zagyg is a loon, but Cuthbert's hats are silly.

    Wastri vs. Raxivort: Heehee, okay, this is probably the fairest matchup so far. I'll say Wastri, because the phrase "The Hopping Prophet" cracks me up just about every time.

    Hextor vs. Zilchus: Hextor. LE villains are often the most interesting, IMHO, and since they, too, are interested in preserving order, this can lead to one of those "teaming up with your enemies against a greater threat" plotlines. That said, if we could keep Hextor in his pale, dark-haired bishonen form, rather than his, er, less esthetically pleasing "war form," that would make me all the happier.

    Pholtus vs. Celestian: Celestian. Sorry, Theocrat. I have enough confidence in your rallying abilities that I realize Celestian may not stand a chance, but I must vote with my heart.

    Heironeous vs. Erythnul: Heironeous. His followers can get a bit smite-happy at times, but a true embodiment of justice has to trump mindless carnage.

    Fharlanghn vs. Delleb: They are both so awesome I seriously don't know which one to choose. I'll abstain for the time being.

    Iuz vs. Mayaheine: Mayaheine. Cute ascended hero-goddess FTW. Iuz gets tricked and trapped so often that he'd be the Distressed Damsel of the gods, if anyone liked him enough to rescue him, that is. ;)

    Obad-Hai vs. Beory: Wha? No Ehlonna? Blasphemy. Anyway, I'll vote Beory, since she seems like slightly less of an uncaring d-bag than Obad-hai.

    Nerull vs. Pelor: Pelor. Pelor brings light, hope, and the possibility of redemption. Nerull may win out in the end, but Pelor shows us that life can at least temporarily triumph over death.

    Vecna vs. Rao: I want to vote Rao because of what he represents, but Vecna just brings so many interesting aspects to the world. Vecna then. Subtle corruption based on finding the "seed of evil" in all beings is creepy and cool. He serves as a reminder of the truly destructive power of lies and secrets.

    Phew! That was a heckuva lot of gods!

    Well played Talin. I will only comment that Ehlonna wasn't added because she is comsidered a 'common' deity on the lists not Flan. I could've had her go up against Wastri sure, demihuman vs amphibian-man, but in the end I couldn't resist using Raxivort either. Tough choices for 32. Imagine Theocrat's ire if Pholtus had been omitted!

    Bralm over Wee Jas - Just because "Wee Jas" is such a baaaaad name.
    Vatun over Kord - 'Cuz I've never really liked jocks.
    Norebo over Syrul - Because 'Syrul' always makes me think of the FR for some weird reason.
    Lendor over Pyremius - Because I never get tired of those old Lendore Isles mods.
    Zilchus over Hextor - Because I'm soooo tired of hearing about Hextor. He sucks.
    Pholtus over Celestian - Because Pholtus gets a bad rap due to the heretics in the Pale. He's actually a great guy.
    Hieroneous over Erythnul - Because he deserves to win. SOMEBODY needs to stand up for what's right and good on Oerth.
    Fharlanghn over Delleb - In spite of the fact that LG overused him.
    Tharizdun over Olidammara - Because I don't like drunken pretty-boys, either.
    Boccob over Incabulos - Though this one is pretty close.
    Zagyg over Cuthbert - Out of respect for Gary, and because I dig Zagyg's hat collection.
    Wastri over Raxivort - Because I'm always pulling for the short fat guy.
    Iuz over Mayaheine - Because I hope to kill him myself someday.
    Obad-Hai over Beory - Because I'm always pulling for the henpecked, underappreciated outdoorsy type, too.
    Pelor over Nerull - (see Hieroneous above)
    Rao over Vecna - Because he's the closest analog to my own deity (and see Hieroneous above)

    It's been a slow but decent enough turnout to work with. I am looking into a new method of voting for round 2 where the stakes are greater.

    Thanks for the entry bubba. Any more takers? Keep em coming.

    Pholtus has a Movie Career

    Hi all -
    OK, since I can't just vote Pholtus on all boards...although it is by a wide margin a no contest, I'll add a bit more.

    Bralm over Wee Jas - hot tartness with firey red hair with massive attitude or Bralm 2.0 called Calistra in WoG 2.0 in which she is a hooker? Easy...always take the easy girls. Wee Jas would make you take her to a nice resturant, dinner and a movie and still won't put out on the drive home. If she did, though, I think she'd be hot in the back seat.

    Kord over Vatun - I like how Mort draws Kord and I repainted the WotC Aspect of Kord miniature. Plus isn't Vatun made up by Iuz anyway.

    Norebo over Syrul - I like that Norbebo hooks up with many goddess - Quantity over Quality

    Lendor over Pyremius - Lendor runs a Pathfinder game and allowed Pholtus to take over Heironeus's character Iomedae's and begin the schism and inquisition in Mendev that begins to take place. Besides, I don't see a Pyremius picture.

    Olidammara over Tharizdum - because Oly is mentioned in the D&D movie. Plus who wants a dark, creepy guy to win?

    Incabulous over Boccob - mainly because it's cooler to say Incabulous over Bobcob (which I always do), besides Boccob is likely reviewing his own March Madness chart after all the upsets this weekend to even notice that he was also in a contest.

    Zagyg over st. cuthbert - He's not even a real god, he's just some churches saint. Besides, look in the rules from 2e to 3e - he frickin' outright stole Tritheron's folder. Same with that hussie Wee Jas stealing stuff, and cuthie is supposed to be a good guy? They walk around knocking on people's heads - just minding their own business (I know your counter argument - the Pholtine's go around throwing people on the fire - yes, but they are HERETICS, convert or die). Plus who doesn't like the old crazy coot uncle that stands up at the Thanksgiving Dinner and says "I gotta pee" and he attempts to climb on the table?

    Raxivort over Wastri - A human that thinks he's a toad? Come on, Man! Plus Raxi is cool, a little blue rodent looking thing. Besides, it looks like Wastri is mostly naked and only wears pants because Wee Jas threatened him with John Wayne Bobett syndrome.

    Zilchus over Hextor - Zilly would just say something like "By rule number 16, subsection A13, testament 4a you must give me a head start on initiative by three times the number of fingers on your left arms and four times the number of fingers on your right arms divided by the total number of arms you have on both sides plus the number of toes that are on your right foot multiplied by the number of toes on your left foot - and you must also include any and all Aspects that also have your powers. While I realize that this may take some time, I will permit you to take all the time you need to figure this out. Plus don't forget to roll your d20 and subtract your weapon speed on each weapon." [Zilchus would most likely mix 1st and 3rd edition rules on initiative, himself rolling a d10 and going for the lower number]

    Pholtus for the WIN. Plus remember that choose your own adventure DVD movie? It has a priest of Pholtus. What's Celestian got? Besides, a whole nation of 'heretics' really isn't hereitical anymore when there are more LN followers than there are of the other churches. Besides, only Pholtus allows clerics of LG, LN and LE to get spells - not even the "greater gods" can match that. So Suck It.

    Erythnul over Heironeous - I always spell Heronenous wrong. Plus Erythunul's WoG saying is Covet Thy Neighbor...which if he has a hawt wife/girlfriend/dog/short sword/whatever I say go for it.

    Delleb over Fharlanghn - Dellb should have gone against Boccob as both are book lovers. Although, I should say that Delleb would most likely also be checking his references to see if UNI would really beat Kansas in a statistical battle and would likely not even notice that he'd gone on to the next level. However, Fharly would likely have walked away from the court after Delleb started with "By Rule number 16, subsection A13......."

    Mayaheine over Iuz - remember when CanonFire didn't exist and we all used GreyTALK e-mail? Well back in the mid-90's we all called her Myhinnie because she was cute. Sure she's only cute on Rao, but she's still a looker. Downside is that in the WoG comic she looks like Joan of Arc. But then that movie was OK and she was hawt.

    Obad-hai over Beory - Beory is in the kitchen makin' me some Pie. Obad-Hai was elevated to Greater God of all Nations in Dungeons and Dragons the movie and Dungeons & Dragons Wrath of the Dragon King. Him and Jublilex were mentioned like every other word. You even had to burn the Obad-Hai journal/bible/Mage's book. I mean Mage's were worshiping this dude. Must be the tree's - because there were a lot of tree's back in the day, unlike now.

    Nerull over Pelor - Well like in Legend of the Seeker, the Keeper gets everybody in the end...which really makes no sense. You worship and work towards a goal of the Maker, but the only way to really support the Maker is to have babies, which will end up dying thus giving the Keeper more people. Plus you keep killing people, which seems counter to the overall goal of the Maker and only furthers the Keeper's powers. Pelor can shine his light right on down to the Keeper's cottage.

    Vecna over Rao - Vecna For the Win, Hands Down! Pun! Remember the Graphic Novel about Pholtus and Vecna? I only remember bits of it and I'm not going to go out and dig it out. But who else has hand their own graphic novel published by some foreign company?

    Be Well. Be Well Bracketed.

    "Scourge of Worlds," "Dungeons and Dragons" and "Dungeons and Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God" -- good stuff! Evil Grin

    I really liked the interactive "Scourge of Worlds," only one path led to a winning scenario. And the fighter/warrior Regdar -- from the T.H. Lain novels Embarassed -- was trained by the Pholtan warrior cleric. Wink

    And I can attest that Bubbagump really does get along well with short fat people! Evil Grin Laughing Laughing Laughing

    Pholtus Is a Movie Star...helps his Theocrat

    Hi all -
    As Pholtus is a Movie Star, he hooked me up with the movie quotes.

    'you're going to need a bigger gun' - is a spoof of the line ''you're going to need a bigger boat'. Bigger Gun is used by Roy in the movie Jaws.

    'I'm terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought' - Dr. Egon says this to Peter Venkman in Ghostbusters.

    Because of this, Pholtus gets 2 extra votes for him. But he should be able to earn some extra votes for next week's battle - one of the twins will be on the chopping block next.

    As The Greyspace Sphere is 16 Billion miles across - with Oerth squarely in the middle, it's a quesstimate that Ginsel is the planet that is about 3 Billion miles away. Besides, it has a giant hamster sized bite taken out of it.

    Be Well. Be Well Quoted.

    Theocrat: Your connections with Pholtus never cease to amaze me. ;)

    Mystic: It was a hard first round matchup sorry to say. Good is not ascendant in Greyhawk evidently, St. Cuthbert lost as well.

    Yeah, saw the St. Cuthbert loss, but I favored Zygyg for the obvious reasons. Wink

    Regarding the God-Off....
    Wow!! I think I missed only ONE in that last competition! Since I'm feeling so prescient (comes with the territory, ya know, I mean with me having the Codex and all), let me make some predictions about the next competition that show a spooky pattern. Its gonna be...
    The Tart vs. the Father Figure
    Brother vs. Brother
    The Master vs. the Student
    The New Evil vs. the New Good (as far as the ages of the gods go)

    Cool.

    But what's SUPER-cool, is that mort finally pulled off my suggestion months ago for the cultists/Gods-in-Space crossover! As I pitched it to him last year... what could ever be cooler than Tharizdun, the Codex, and Spelljammer all in the same comic. A Perfect Storm!!!! Bwaahahahahaa!!!!

    Maldin: I'm glad I could pull off that improable crossover. It only gets stranger next episode.

    As for your predictions, Maldin, well you may be onto something there...but as of this posting it is Wednesday morning and a few of the matches are still knotted up-close. Anyone who hasn't voted go to the last comic and check it out. The gods of GH need you!

    Nice, Mort. Really nice. Cool

    I see that the Holy Father -- err, I mean the Holy "Theocrat" -- is trying to upset the process . . . again! Reminds me of the Spanish Inquisition's Tomás de Torquemada. Razz Evil Grin

    I bookmarked the Ull page you provided, I'll return to it often. Thanks! Cool Happy
