Strips about Grub's birthday are probably the most robust subcategory of Penny Arcade content, just edging out the occasional ostrich or giraffe. There are lots and lots. And now we have offered up another one, which Gabriel has embroidered with something akin to birthday lore - we can see the traditional Czech garb for Gabrílstrana, the customary trout holstered and at the ready. Happy Birthday, man. As a present, you can paint any really big, setpiece miniature of mine that you want up to the "Parade ready" standard. It's my treat! Oh, and thanks for my whole career and stuff. I genuinely appreciate it.
Oh! As soon as I'm done writing the strip, I'm gonna head over to Dabe's and wrap up Metal: Hellsinger on stream. We have maybe two levels left, but there's a bunch of challenges that offer novel buffs - I mean, uh, "Sigils" - that it probably wouldn't hurt to have dialed in before we close it out. But! I asked for a grip of codes for the game, and Funcom PR came through with five. That means we can give the full game away more than once an hour! I'm invigorated by the prospect. You should come hang out because the game is cool and fun, and especially good as a stream game in my opinion, but even if you watch the stream for purely mercenary, code-related reasons you are still welcome. Starting as close to 10am PST as we can on the channel!
