The creator of the website Remember Comics Lying In Bed Mon (usually shortened simply to "Lying") is the online persona of Tim Maughan. Primarily known for his online webcomic inspired by The Order of the Stick, Lying also runs several Let's Play series, plays/runs Role Playing Games with The Dragon Hat, and is a friend to members of the Yogscast. Tim's work is characterised by his love of long reaching storylines, and his varying characterisation depending on which series he is recording. Thanks to an ongoing multiverse plotline, Lying's personality can vary dramatically between videos.
Following through to the Yogscast Complete server from the Chaosville Server, wherein his series theme was the recreation of classic Horror Movie settings, specifically the Well in the Woods, Lying's recent Minecraft series on the Yogscast Complete pack is The Witch in the Woods. This series takes his previous theme up a rather disturbing notch by focusing on the recreation of a horror antagonist... via his own Minecraft character.
Lying has another Minecraft series running on the Resonant Rise 3 modpack called Yokai Temple, in which he plays a priest who (initially) aims to protect the inhabitants of the server from the monsters and angry spirits in their world. After a while, this Lying begins to dabble in magic that he shouldn't, a practice encouraged by a brain in a jar.
The third and final Minecraft series on Lyings channel uses the Absque Sole subpack of Resonant Rise 3. Knight of Fangs follows the adventures of Sir Lying of Baedmahn and his squire Fuzz. Later in the series, the Band of the Fox, a group of mercenaries, appears to join the two. Sir Lying and Squire Fuzz (and, later, the Band) are werewolves, and the series details the Bands mercenary adventures along with Lying and Fuzz' quest to master and ultimately rid themselves of their lycanthropy.
Lying maintains a complete list of all Lyings here.
Lyinginbedmon provides examples of the following tropes.
- Alternate Timeline: The main theme behind his gradual development into a monster. In the most nightmarish way possible. Lying is basically cannibalising their other-selves from alternate realities, killing themselves across a thousand realities and stealing their life-force to stay alive. This is the origin of Kyofushin, who is basically the ghost of every other version of Lying ever killed.
- Ambiguous Gender: Part of the fanon (possibly Ascended Fanon) for Lying's character is that the character in question is gender neutral.
- A Million Is a Statistic: We have no idea who most of the Lying's the Witch killed only a few like possibly Atlantis!Lying, but we sure know it is a lot!
- Cute and Psycho: His Minecraft Persona has massive shades of this. One can't really blame him after being trapped in a well for decades.
- Don't Go in the Woods: For thats where the Witch resides.
- Driven to Madness: Averted. His Minecraft character was already crazy period to his quest to become a horror villain.
- Friendly Rivalry: With Kirin Dave, although there may very well be more to it than currently meets the eye given what Kirin did to him on the Chaosville server...
- Hidden Agenda Villain
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Designed a Well that only opened during certain times during his stint on the Chaosville server. he was trapped in his own well by Kirin Dave with whom his character had a friendly rivalry. As of his arrival on the Yogscast complete pack Lying has apparently been trapped down there for years.
- Immortality Seeker: Part of his goal at recreating himself as a horror antagonist is to make himself impossible to kill.
- Older Than They Look: Presumably, since he was seemingly in that well for debates without dying or aging... even he doesn't understand why.
- Ominous Music Box Tune: His Witch in the Woods series and his Chaosville series both include a rather disturbing musical box opening complete with the occasional off-putting Freeze-Frame Bonus
- Sealed Evil in a Can
- Sealed Room in the Middle of Nowhere: The way Lying was left at the end of his series on Chaosville, trapped in the bottom of his own recreated horror scene.
- Shut Up, Kirk!: After Kyofushin points out all the monstrous things that Lying has done, Lying is quick to point out that if the positions were reversed, it would have done the exact same thing.
- Tears of Blood: Almost. Lying has a red line above his eyelids, somewhat resembling eye shadow which is in fact intended to be blood.
- Then Let Me Be Evil: The more Lying interacts with characters throughout the series the more obvious it becomes that he's developed from Friendly Rivalry with other characters and a mild taste for horror to somebody actually seeking vengeance for his mistreatment.
- Through the Eyes of Madness: This has defintiely begun happening to Lying's character more and more during his quest to obtain immortality, including this rather creepy sequence from Witch in the Woods.
- What an Idiot!: At the end of episode 24, Kyofushin appears again. As Lying blatantly lies about being sorry for how he's treated the ghost, the thing walks into the ritual circle... That is then used to seal Kyofushin into a spectral stone.Lying: I cannot believe that worked.
- Brain in a Jar: Kegare
- Big Badass Battle Sequence: The ambush of Kirin, well as big and badass as you can get with Minecraft.
- Corrupt the Cutie: As a consequence of talking to Kegare, Lying, the almost saintly priest who initially had only the utmost respect for gods, has slowly become bitter towards them, and has started to practice magics that may get him into trouble.
- Did You Just Punch Out Cthulu: Basically no one watching was expecting Priest Lying to be able to beat the Witch thanks to there intense power and basic immortality, but the Priest made it look like child's play
- God Is Flawed: Lying has begun to think this, since his prayers asking the gods for information about other universes remain unanswered.
- I Just Want to Be Normal: Lying after he realizes what he's done at the end of the series, giving up the power of his god and going back to taking care of his people, and spending his days hoping its enough to redeem himself to the same god
- O.O.C. Is Serious Business: After seeing the fiery ruins of Kirin Dave's house, Lying spends the first minute of Episode 19 panicking, telling himself that everything is fine.
- A Father to His Men: Sir Lying is quite protective of his group, he is also literally a more father like figure to them thanks to him transforming them into Werewolves
- Fur Against Fang: After a confrontation with a vampiric Kirin, the series becomes about the fight between the Knights and Kirin.
- Good Is Not Nice: Sir Lying can be quite cruel especially about his prejudices, believing in a genocide of the vampires being necessary, despite most of them really just wanting to be left alone and not cause trouble.
- Noble Demon: Kirin, though not very good, is actually all things considering was actually quite kind to the Knights during his ambush, only driving them into there cave and even offering them a chance to join up with them and become vampires. Which Garion who had been looking for Kirin, quickly took up.
- Noble Wolf: When it's not about Vampires, Sir Lying is very noble and incredibly intelligent.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Sir Lying
- Wolf Man: The secondary form of the Werewolves
- But for Me, It Was Tuesday: Knight waltzes right into the TARDIS without requiring much in the way of explanation. Nether is pleased.
