Golden Hair

The Complete Peanuts, Vol. 12

The Complete Peanuts, Vol. 12: 1973-1974 by Charles M. Schulz

A lot of gag-a-day comics. Peppermint Patty does badly at school, and has a sequence about ice-skating. Snoopy is a Beagle Scout and gets lost in the woods; writes and submits stories; and does literature as puppet shows. Woodstock accidentally gets a bike for Christmas. Sally talks to the school. Rerun rides on his mother's bicycle. Charlie Brown goes to camp with a sack over his head and does very well.

Sally talks to the school -- the school later falls down -- Charlie Brown has to share a desk with Peppermint Patty with complications. Spike appears and Lucy feeds him up -- later he invites Snoopy to Thanksgiving with the coyotes and misadventures ensue. Snoopy and Linus meet Truffles at her grandfather's farm, but it goes better for Snoopy. Baseball and Lucy chasing Schroeder. Snoopy and Woodstock worry about the tale of the Three Little Pigs. Charlie Brown tries to get hired for odd jobs. Snoopy breaks his leg. Marcie hates sports but wants a baseball cap.

plot, plot, plot. . .

So the characters on the dungeon crawl stop to draw a deep breath and think. And the author stops in the outline to think.

At which point she realizes that actually the tactics are clear. Our heroine did point out that their objective is not to clear out the dungeon but to get to the prisoner in it (because it really is a dungeon), but all attempts to sneak past problems have gone badly. Their only prudent plan now is to wade through every trap and monster and put them out of commission.
