Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

On the Origin of PCs

The Order of the Stick

 Elan: Friends, Azurites, countrymen, lend me your ears. Not literally, because ewww. I mean, that would be disgusting.

And messy. And since you'd just be lending them, we'd have to figure out how to reattach them all, and that'd be a lot of work.

Today, we stand here on the wall, preparing to defend this city from the forces of evil. And probably chaos, too.

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers. And sisters. Definitely also sisters, they are part of the band too. I think they play drums.

A day may come when the courage of men (and women) fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day.

And if the battle lasts through tomorrow, it's not that day either.

It may or may not be the day after that, I'm not sure. Still too early to tell.

But in case it's not that day, or it is that day but the battle is already over so it doesn't matter, I want you to remember this:

No one ever won a war by dying for their country. They won by making the other guy die for his country. Which still applies even though hobgoblins don't live in countries.

They live in caves, I think. So make them die for their caves. Which, admittedly, sounds a lot less heroic than dying for your country.

But today will be the day when Azure City declared in one voice, "We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight!"

And the fact that it rhymes does not make it any less true!

We'll stand here together and tell our enemies that they may take our lives...

But they will never take our freedom!

 Tarquin: ... That's a can of tomato soup.

Gannji: I know, I was just trying to keep the theme going.
