Sword and Bored special edition birthday comic: ‘Anniversary gifts’

Happy Anniversary, Massively OP! It’s been a busy year for us, and a great year to launch a website centering around MMOs. Through reader support, we were able to kick things off with a bang. And one of the items that we promised in our Kickstarter campaign was a year of the comic strip based around the MOP mascot, Mo.

We thought it would be fun to bring the strip back for the anniversary of the site. The strip has always been a tongue-in-cheek take at MMO tropes, so where better to comment about some of the silly anniversary gifts you get in MMORPGs.

Welcome Mo back in this week’s special edition comic…

Happi anni MOP crew! I bet you those panties are OP as heck– especially if Mo wore them; insta-kills all day long just from the sight of him. What a leet gift indeed.

So glad to still be able to open up the first tab of chrome and have Massively there.  Pretty much read this throughout the day! Congrats to everyone! Also kudos on the Mo avatar in the featured :D

Based on the reactions from the recent SotA article, I think we need Mo’s expressionism from this old one here…..

Happy Anniversary and here’s to many more!
And hey, if things go bad, at least you’ll know that it was you who ran it into the ground and not some nameless corporate wanker.
(please don’t run it into the ground, I love you all and read you every day)

breetoplay paragonlostinspace Yep, good to see Mo even occasionally.. Though I think Schlag’s just one the Mo internet for the week with his picture. That’s just soo awesome, I can’t get over it.

paragonlostinspace I don’t think it’ll be a weekly thing again for now, but it’s a good tool to bring out for special occasions and moments when you really NEED Mo’s expression to say what we’re all thinking imo. :D

schlag had a 105 avatars he tried to use individually from the ones he was aware of or remembered from what he said above. I suspect a few got missed. :(

Edit/PS: With the further risk of bombing my pink ego here…it’s amazing how you used my image for the white and grayscale values. It’s very effective when pulled back in combination with the other avatars. o.O

Please, what have you got to apologize for? The scope of what you did to begin with is beyond, and it goes to show how awesome this site’s commentariat can be. Honored to be counted amongst it, regardless of my icon not being in this image.
