Individual IME (Individual Magical Effect) as of Chapter 4

Postby skythorn on Fri Jan 21, 2011 8:44 pm

Right - which character has what IME ... I have no idea about the green colour revealed today, but I have some prospects in mind. In doing that research I lost hours looking at various pages and recording what seemed to have that similar colour. As a result, I've found a lot of IME's and other little things that seem to be important in the storyline. Perhaps someone has had a better look-around than me and can correct my moderate efforts. Please feel free to make corrections.

note 1 : every time a character caused a scream worth of color or an onomatopoeia, it was coloured through his IME. (Credit : Synapse, but color changed to colour just 'cos I'm Aussie)
note 2 : List of named colours here.

Objects should also have Shield of Wonder (destroyed)

What about the three drow trio, the female had a Blue IME I believe. also K'Seliss is most definitely Male, and its said that he is a lizardfolk, just a modified one. I think Grems IME is white because that is the color the Key shone with while he held it, he is also a goblin, not a hobgoblin.

Fumbles' IME is white, as we saw when he held Complains' sword and when he yelled out "Senor Vorpal Kick'asso" when attacking Kore.

Grem is a goblin, not a hobgoblin.

K'Seliss is male, and is probably a lizardfolk hybrid.

You have Dellyn and Saral Caine's names misspelled. And Forgath's.

Other than that, some of this info should be put in the Goblins Comic Wiki.
I was expecting something unexpected.

@ Wolfie21384 - Thanks - good links there. Appreciated. Updates made.
@ Bloogonis - Shield is worth placing on the objects - The 3 drow characters have been written out and replaced by the 3 humans who are not really part of the story right now. have been
@ Tinsoldier - Thanks on those updates (and multitude of misspellings) - Updated. (... and there's a goblins Wiki?)
@ Wolfie & Ageisia - Do you mean page 11232010-2 - he was not holding a sword, just leaping with bare fists ... I think there is another page when he hed Complain's Sword but I can't find it. There was the Big Ears page, but ... ah found it (thanks Wolfie21384) 03182006 clearly shows the sword being white.

Hmm - no-one spotted that I missed out the Axe of Prissan ... 08112007

Also - I noticed that the text of a character's action sound effects does not necessarrily represent the IME of that character. Some are coloured brown or green just because the contrast works well. Refer Thaco (IME Brown) and Chief (IME Blue) interacting with a [urlhttp://www.goblinscomic.com/04292006/]Green[/url] sound effect. Also Kore's text effects were black earlier and now either White/Lightblue or White. In my view it's just artist's licence and not always reflective of the IME.

I also don't see the connection between action sound effect and IME, while you might expect Kin to have a green IME there is no magic being used in the referred scene. I think the color is used because its the almost same as her hair, just to create a clear association between sound and actor.

Yep, I agree ... I think when I wake, I will change some references follow that of Saves-A-Fox and K'Seliss - like Unknown IME (Action text is yellow/white seen here : 01262010)

So far, every time a character caused a scream worth of color or an onomatopoeia, it was colored through his IME. See the fight between Dellyn and Minmax for example, or any big yell by the characters who showed their IME.

Any chance of this teleporting being done via "opening a portal" (like Nightcrawler - It's nigh instantaneous but is still a "extraplanar walk" complete with opening and closing doors and the characteristic "BAMF" from the open/close and infernal fumes from said plane) so it would explain the green IME?

Also, either they donned some freakish weaponry or Goblinslayer is still alive... sorta (IIRC, GS's plant IME part was green, and probably anything empowered by that weird wood would show green IME. Since it's a plant, it might still be alive unto itself)

I love this topic. And also, Savesafox's is just orange. I believe the orangewhite was because she was hitting the egg, which was white while it was cracking.

see: http://www.goblinscomic.com/01262010/

Looking through these archive links in the thread, I just realized that in earlier comics, the goblins' heads are rounded, but after a certain point their heads are almost FLAT from a side view. It's discombobulating seeing so little from a side view of their heads. x_x

Saves A Fox's IME is cream-colored. The orange/white color from the egg-room seems to have been a mistake, since her sound effects took on a cream color when fighting the stapler-remover monsters on the platform here: http://www.goblinscomic.com/07052010/

Additionally, when she used Klik as a weapon, the merging of the two was a cream/gray mix: http://www.goblinscomic.com/08022010/

I'd guess that it wasn't a mistake, the orange was the Egg itself, and hers was the cream on the bottom

This thread really should get a sticky or bumped when it disappears from first page, and of course, being transferred to the wiki.
Well, i don't know how serious it is, but if there's capacity then
a, i could help editing, too
b, The wiki really needs a proper index to see whats there and how those pages are connected
c, you should ask thunt to put it's link under the "Community" menuitem to get it promoted.


Other:
Do we include the evolution of their IMEs, or at least theories what will they become? (demon tail, clan armor, tower, etc ...)

It's updated whenever people think about it. And it's good for me to remind folks that it exists. (I didn't create it though.)

The "sound effect colour" in this update (about ███) certainly is not olive green (███).
From the colors named in the wikipedia page,
  • Light green ███,
  • Granny smith Apple ███
  • Mint green ███
  • Moss green ███
  • Pale green ███
  • Tea green ███
  • Turquoise green ███
fit most, for my eyes.

(You may want to use this technique I used in this post to show all the named colors. Use a color picker to get the color values in the comic.)

The color values are not unique there, though - even inside one letter the exact value of green varies (maybe due to JPEG compression).

Individual Individual Magic Effect heh.

Hint: If you want to tell the exact colors of IMEs, use an aiding software. Firefox's addon "Colorpick" is a good one. There's only so many named colors for the millions a hexadecimal code can bring.
