Oh yeah, better to just have separate profiles. :)

Cherry: my crossbows are still sorted by machete-osity

Weapon menus, like Star Wars, is best viewed in machete order.

I'm actually very interested, now, to catalogue Star Wars in machete order

Let's settle this in Discord

But did he change the password on the menu bar!?

He did but it's just password2

My first thoughts upon seeing the title and that first text box was that we'd be getting a joke about a level of detail setting to remove the extra plants. (Side thought just now... What if there was a detail slider for exposition!!! )

After the full comic though, I'm intrigued by the idea of having a separate organization strategy for each party member. - There's some potential there for some interesting strategy/optimization/speed tech, if that was possible. One person specializes in gadgets, another for thrown weapons, a third for healing items, and a 4th who swaps their elemental/status weapon frequently.
It would be interesting to try it, maybe even making it a key selling point if it plays well. On the other hand, I'm wondering if it would ever be worth the coding effort for a proof of concept for how well that played. ... It's also likely that a setup like that could be a pain to babysit that menu for each character separately.

To the men I-pause pun, (You vs I) I see it and raised you an O pause pun in discord: version with restricted use for older females. ... Let's see if I can do one better, with a full set of vowels:

A is the freeware version. 'Anyone' can get to those, often collected by opponents after you are unconscious.
E is the standard version, having some security, but 'Experts' can access it, with those being the items for stealing.
I is for personal use only: no sharing, password protected, and if you are gone, all that was in it is lost to the void.
O is an upgrade to I, allowing for designation of specific Others who can access the items if you don't access it within a given time. This is priced in a way that typically only retired people are willing to use it.
U is a standard group access account. Anyone in the group can add and remove items. (But you never know when something is removed... Was it actually someone in the group who removed it? Or does the service provider occasionally take their cut manually?)
Y is for yield: a premium account where what you put in it remains active, potentially allowing for automated production. You are fighting a boss that never runs out of a specific item? They likely have this version.

Does that last frame indicate that Cherry doesn't like the picture selected for her account? If so, she might try to change it, unless that's an owner only feature.

You mentioned in discord that this is the first we've seen Hero and Cherry conscious since the end of the Skuuban arc. As for guesses on their current location, from the image... I'm going to say A: an airship observation deck, B: a lighthouse, or C: the S.S. Annie.

I'm upset that lowering the detail slider to remove dense foliage is a way, way better joke and more on brand for RPGW than what I did

Howard's wielding a sword? Wait wait wait, 'Adaptability' didn't apply to just Reka, everybody can equip swords now?! Look out, Hero, the fight for optimum equipment begins! Better hope your commands are up to snuff in disc 6 or you're going to get menu bar'd!

He actually doesn't have it equipped. It does nothing in battle. For him, it's just a tool.

Hey Doom, just wanted to say thank you for this amazing revival! I was feeling nostalgic for RPGW the other night and found out about this while searching. So, I'm late to the game, but I've really enjoyed reading your strips. IMO true to the source material while being new and fresh. You've taken a comic I loved so much and brought it to a new level. Thanks so much!

Also shoutout to Atari for the art, voluptuous renditions indeed... =)
I hope ya'll can continue to work together, this is a great comic.
