Oz as a king?! He did say he left his crown in his other ectoplasm. I just don’t see it – his lack of punctuality, responsibility, attention to detail, liking for training, management skills, etc. would seem to make a poor king. Of course, that may be why he is a dead king. I hope the gray elf is the actual power behind the throne.
He is propably the wizard king of a land named after himself. The Wizard of Oz.
Who said Oz was to be king? Only says he had a kingdom to build – perhaps he just had to reinstate the rightful ruler?
Yes but as Unmaker & Christopher said, Oz told him “sorry I left my crown in my other ectoplasm” and he didn’t look like a “regretful king” there.
To be fair he is a descent fighter and can handle crazy situations pretty well. In the fantasy era becoming a king is just pulling a sword out of a rock or slaying something/someone. That kind of fits his skill set.
From there just splash a bit of unified knowledge (HOW TO MAKE GUNS!) and then slap down what ever bits you remembered from previous history/building. Like aqueducts, indoor plumbing, and airplanes!
Then it doesn’t sound that far fetched.
Oz would be no worse as a King than say… Conan.
Oh, come on! “Oz” wakes up in a strange alternate place “Over the Rainbow” as it were, and the first person who talks to him is a green-skinned witch?
And you still have to SPECULATE about who she is? Are you just not paying attention, or what?!
What if we just really really hope this is not the 98576335th webcomic to insert itself into LF Baum’s world?
Then you’re pretty safe. She looks nothing like either incarnation of the Wicked Witch of the West, and Aaron is generally more creative than to rip off a long-dead author.
“Either incarnation?” What the hell are you talking about? As far as public-domain material (ie LFB’s books) were concerned, she only ever had one incarnation. I know there was a movie a while ago where she wasn’t green at the start and turned green, and there was a broadway thing where she had a first name derived from the author’s initials. But both of those things are SPECIFICALLY NOT canon to anybody taking advantage of the public-domain nature of the work. Those embellishments are copyrighted and would get an author sued if he reused them.
Hey Aaron, this might be a good time for another guest appearance from the Nodwick crew…just sayin’.
>implying there’s a bad time for a guest appearance from Nodwick and Co.
Perhaps I should say there are good times and better times, throwing the Nodwick cast in haphazardly would be fun, but it’s better If you can actually work them into the story like he did in the PS238 strip where they showed up and that’s what I meant, this looks like a prime opportunity.
A rose covered dragon statue holding a box ? Or a dragon turned to stone that was holding a chest.
Or a dragon that has really good camouflage or a weeping angel dragon.
