What became of the Green Knight? (1 of 3)

Reinderdijkhuis on Aug. 30, 2012

We'll be answering some reader questions in the next few episodes. The formatting features on Drunk Duck don't lend themselves to this as well as the functionality on the main website, so please feel free to visit the main ROCR site, where this was posted on February 28, 2005.
Today's questions come from Adam Cuerden, who asks: “How did the Green Knight get home? I mean, he's a head in a jar, and he's ging to have a hard time opening that jar even if they do take him home properly. Presuming that he hasn't been kidnapped by Rásdondr, of course.”
and from reader Michel Prior, who asks: “Will the other half-elf (the one who's 300 years old) turn up in this storyline, eventually? (I hope so!)”
The answer to those questions comes in three parts. Also: The idea that Messing With Causality Results In Tentacles can probably be traced back to Lovecraft's Chthulhu Mythos (which I haven't read), but was popularized and made into a humorous fantasy trope by Terry Pratchett. By now it's probably part of modern folklore in the same way that hobbits and D&D dwarves are, so I felt only a slight twinge of guilt at referring to it here.
Any story – even a short one such as this – involving cute naked sorceresses, putrescent corpses and Messing with Causality should really be drawn in the style of the webcomic Flick, but there's no way I'd be able to teach myself to do that, or even come close, in less than a month. It's too far removed, stylistically, from what I do. So I'm doing this one in my own style, but in a simplified, smaller format.
