|#2MortepierreJul 03, 2006 4:10:02||That, sir, is a mystery even the gods find impossible to solve. Witness..|
|#3mortellanJul 03, 2006 14:55:42||LOL classic. That's twice today my comic has been referenced for a thread (Kord is the other). I love it! |
p.s. it wouldn't surprise me if someday Cobb became a quasi-deity. Of what I have NO idea, maybe god of racial confusion.
|#4MortepierreJul 03, 2006 15:02:47||Well mort, your comic is just too good not to ;) |
As for Cobb, I rather see him taking Secrets from Vecna's portfolio :P
|#5zombiegleemaxJul 03, 2006 16:36:18||For what it's worth, in LG we deliberately (on pain of pain) decided never to even speculate about what/who he might be. |
If you're using him in your campaign, just assume there's more to him than meets the eye and that there's not a lot that escapes his attention. Everything else is irrelevant.
Some mysteries should always remain unsolved. ;)

LGG or OJ article, I believe.
|#7grodogJul 04, 2006 14:12:25||I've always thought he was a Dragon (since the 1983 boxed set, when the ruler for Irongate was actually given a name), though in my occassional-p/d/b dyslexic manner, I figured Cobb meant that he was a copper dragon :P|

It's not in the LGG, for sure.
And the OJ, though excellent, isn't Canon.
I think I know the article you're talking about though. It was a fan-piece entitled Dragons of Greyhawk (or something similar) and used to be on the Codex of Greyhawk site (it might have made it into the OJ after that). I never liked that it defined what Cobb Darg was.
|#9grodogJul 05, 2006 9:00:05||Looks like the Dragons of Aerdy article isn't included in the internet archive for the Codex. There was a section for Dragon NPCs, and Cobb was listed (that much is still archived, just not the actual text/contents).|

Nice! Knowing the love of anagrams in Greyhawk, Cobb Darg fairly screams copper dragon.
