[Comic for Friday, December 3, 2010]


I wonder who might want to keep you away from school...
I bet I know... What was THAT?!

That's a data ghost. An Avatar left behind by a former student or teacher. The school is full of them. They're projected by virtual reality units all over campus.

Legend has it that a great hacker built the VR system before going mad and murdering someone. It's the most impressive VR ever built. Now he rots away in Angband prison, his genius wasted.

Most of the ghosts are friendly and helpful, though, like Nearly Nadless Norm here.
"Nearly Na--"?
