So when does the “killing Tammy” part begin?
The drider is obviously played by Martin’s player. So transparent there, Kevin.
I don’t know; who is that sitting next to Morty?
That would be the halfling/ogre.
Looks like an Elvis to me…
Or at least Elvish…you know, Elvish Prestley…he’s a bard…
Looks like a Fleece to me. But that does present an interesting question – where *is* the ogre mage?
I suspect he smelled the driders and hid…
That’s a Fleece. While I scripted it out, I apparently forgot to illustrate Nesfeq turning to mist the instant he spied the drow and saying goodbye. It’s a good catch, and I will probably go back and fix it.
Thanks for my first laugh of the morning, Orald!
Is it “a” or “the last” Fleece?
A. Tammy had hundreds of minions, a handful of sorcerers, and a pair of driders. The Fleece army was thousands of HOLE-level rogues. Tammi was lucky to have gotten out of there alive.
(BTW, “out of there” is a continent away.)
The horse clearly needs the advise of a [helmet] stylist. Bunker too.
Send in your sketches.
I didn’t say “the artist” 😉
Aha! Now we finally know who’s standing in for Kevin’s RL character! Kinda weird to play as a horse though.
Hail, hail, the gang’s all here.
Who you calling a putz, horse? Got any opposable thumbs? No? Then go sit in the corner.
In the evil corner, we have Erias in possession of Vecnus’ hand and eye, Rusty Razor, Overwhelmed and Suave… Looks like his plan can begin anytime he likes. Of course Tammi wants to betray him, so I’m guessing he plans to kill off all of the Underdark.
It’s a sticky wicket, for sure!
When I saw this, I immediately thought how bad an idea it is to have the enemy in the middle of your stronghold and lecture them. But then I thought, from the point of view of Erias, the enemy are the H.O.L.E., so they should be pretty safe.
“Erias in possession of Vecnus’ hand and eye, Rusty Razor, Overwhelmed and Suave”
Well, they are just sitting there, while nominally they are in his possession, they are in reach of anyone with opposable thumbs.
Thinking about it, now Bunker has his Paladinhood back, perhaps his steed will become loyal again? If that is the case, then there is at least one free agent on their side.
I’d imagine that’s what Bunker is hoping as well.
I’d advise him not to hold his breath, unless Arabax is an exceptionally good actor and has been ‘in character’ for such a long period of time that it defies belief.
Did anyone else see the final panel and just automatically expect the screen to go black with a strange echoing gunshot sound, and the word “LOST” to appear in big white capital letters?
As I somehow didn’t catch the TV show: no.
Now THAT was a missed opportunity!
Well, I took the opportunity to order “The Gamers” DVDs…
Actually, the Sopranos did the “Black screen, the end” bit first.
And really well, too.
And when you got “The End” in the Sopranos, you bloody KNEW it was the end! 🙂
Please tell me that’s because the mobsters all died. =_= *didn’t warm up to the Sopranos at all*
I believe it was also done in the 1980 film Fade to Black. I wouldn’t be surprised if there are earlier examples.
if you don’t notice Enkidu’s cigar, it looks like the horsey did a big steaming poo…
To be fair, the cigar came from hell. It’s SUPPOSED to smell that way.
… Nah. Horse manure doesn’t actually smell too bad, if the horse is healthy. Comes from them being herbivores and the hindbrain translating the scent of their dung as ‘prey spoor’, perhaps? 😉
Have you ever dried, rolled, and smoked it in a cigar?
If i could get the horse to feed in a field of weed, maybe….
You spent some time with native americans?
I don’t smoke, though I can think of one or two people who I might not mind springing that kind of surprise on. Not too much, anyway. :p
You must admit, Erias sets a nice table.
At least a big one.
If the table doesn’t have good food and good drink or books on it, it’s not set.
From Erias’ POV, there’s plenty of food at the table.
But is any of it good? As in, gourmet?
So, where are the drinks?
Don’t think Erias is the Sipping type – It could be worse I suppose…
He could write poetry Worse than a vogons and force them to listen to it.
(man I hate that Moderation filter…guess it hates posts with more than one link…
I could have sworn you and I talked about this a couple times before, but yes, multiple links sets it off.
Why were the first two panels dark anyway? Did Erias cast a darkness spell? Were those big heavy drapes closed, and the drider suddenly opened them? Or did we have a HERO POV of what it’s like to slowly come round where our ears wake up before our eyes?
The last one.
I hope that Bunker and company remember that The Cake Is A Lie – You just can’t trust those badguys…even at dinner parties.
Speaking of Portal…man, wouldn’t it be fun to have that Aperture Science portal gun in just about any RPG?
I mean come on…That thing kicks ass
I am hoping that the villain doesn’t mess things up by leaving them alive for a second longer than they have to. Or, wait… is that too late already? Stupid gloating-addicted villains, always defeating yourselves.
Maybe Erias needs ‘heroes’ as sacrifices for the ritual.
Because it all worked out so well last time. Then again, Bixer doesn’t seem to be around to screw things up anymore, so his chances of success have probably improved exponentially!
Everyone’s chances of everything improve without Bixer around.
And “everyone” includes Bixer…
lolz sucks to be you!!!!!
