Frigg’s Me Gusta face. Pallies are OP
PALADIN UPGRADE! Go Frigg! Oh wait… you didn’t LIKE that Order you ‘joined’, did you? Welp, sucks to be you, huh.
I would like to venture the idea that Frigg is not a paladin of her Order.
Frigg is clearly a Paladin of Bandit.
Paladins don’t have to be part of a cult/order/sect/church to have a paladin’s powers. :3 Just look at Kore from the comic Goblins! Maybe it’s a god reaching out to her and she doesn’t even know it?
One should never cross a shieldmaiden.
Wait, wait, did I miss something important? ‘Cuz from here it looks like Frigg just went paladin without backstory. O.o
Not to pick nits, but isn’t paladin a subclass of crusader? Or perhaps it’s the other way ’round? In either case, seems to me the two are similar enough as to warrant Frigg’s critical smite there.
Heck, seems as though the golem didn’t notice her, so if she has any ranks in stealth, wouldn’t she also get some kind of sneak attack bonus?
Crusader=Paladin only less lay-on-hand and more upside-your-head!
Frigg turned pally when she started makin’ them “oath” things.
She’s had plenty of backstory to be a paladin, in my eyes. Paladins don’t necessarily have to worship a god, nor do they have to be chaste, nor do they have to be boring.
They just have to BELIEVE.
wait wait wait, so Mal Reynolds is a Paladin?
universe makes more sense at last!
Why yes. Yes, he is.
A rather battered one, but absolutely a paladin, especially in the pre-D&D sense.
Has gun. Will travel.
I’m not sure if Mal has business cards.
and just like mal, frigg aims to misbehave
BELIEVE, PANCHO, BELIEVE!
For those with backstory concerns:
Gravedust’s comments; Ch2 Pg21, Ch7 Pg2
Hearing ‘scripture’; Ch10 Pg2 & 4
Frigg’s been a paladin since the first page.
Besides growing up in a religious order and playing a major tank class of some sort?
Sure, her mace may have grown three sizes that day…
…but she still has all the tender sweetness of a seasick crocodile.
Don’t try to hit her with a 39-and-a-half foot pole, either. The end result will not be pretty.
Aww, I was hoping she’d shove it in the golem’s ear, like a giant Q-tip.
You’re not supposed to do that with Q-tips!
“Not supposed to” and “Frigg” are incompatible terms. :-)
Or extremely compatible, depending on how you look at it.
Holy cow! Frigg’s a Pally? I’m cracking up over here!
Frigg leveled up!
+3 to strength!
+1 to stamina!
+∞ to BAMFness!
Where was that mojo earier, like.. you know… when they all where getting killed ;)
She hadn’t been DEAD before.
she just said the magic words.
Interestingly, ‘Fuck it. FINE.’ is also how she re-affirmed her oath to protect everyone on Page 5. Maybe she just entered service, as it were.
‘I Believe you’
or as she was saying earlier:
“Oh Gog, Oh Gog, Oh Gog, Oh Gog, Oh Gog, Yeeeeeeeeeeaaaassssss!”
Knowing Frigg, I doubt it’s “Smite Evil”. Probably more like “Smite Douchebags”. Best had better watch himself.
Thus, in effect, it is far better than the smite evil of the standard-issue shit-paladins.
RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE!!1
Well played, Captain.
Glad to see she got something useful from that crazy convent.
*giggle* Giant Rock Mans. I’ll be thinking about that for the rest of the night.
Who is this irresistible creature who has an insatiable love for the dead?
living dead girl……
(cmon’ folks. lets see how many of the lyrics we can write before we get tired of the pun)
RAGE IN THE CAGE
AND PISS ON THE STAGE
THERE’S ONLY ONE SURE WAY
TO BRING THE GIANT DOWN
(hint: It’s a holy hammer)
DEFUNCT THE STRINGS
OF CEMETARY THINGS
WITH ONE FLAT FOOT
ON THE DEVIL’S WING
Crawl on me
Sink into me
Die for me
Living Dead Girl
RAPING THE GEEK (hint: Best)
AND HUSTLING THE FREAK
LIKE A HUNCHBACH JUICE
ON A SENTIMENTAL NOOSE
Paladins: OP no matter where they are.
Just throwing this out to all the “wtf?pally!” Peeps were commenting she was a paladin back when Gravedust was making doodles of her having an inner light. Not to mention her backstory being entirely about a convent, I wouldn’t be surprised if I missed the speculations back then.
Took me awhile to figure out which page you were talking about. In hindsight, some definite foreshadowing there.
there was definitely speculation early on. As early as chapter 1, page 4. http://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Aguildedage.net%2Fwebcomic+paladin+frigg
What voice? What is she talking about? Did I miss something?
Laughing at Best in the background.
And God said, “Let there be pwnage”; and he saw that it was good.
And Frig beget a big glowing hammer thing, and the big glowing hammer thing beget head smashing, and head smashing beget awesome, and everyone begot while the begetting was good.
You know, I could appreciate a God that chooses Frig to be its holy champion.
Frig is like Joan of Arc with less French and more pwnage.
She´s Pwn of Arc.
Wouldn’t it be Pwn of Ark(erra)?
Ok, it is established: the plural of man from now on is “mans”. Opponents of irregular plurals rejoice.
Yay paladin tank! My day is complete.
/I play a paladin tank and sometimes talk in leetspeak. Sadly my avatar does not share Frigg’s gender.
You have a new Quest now, to remedy that.
woot, paladin powers!
go frig, you have officially become more awesome than before.
It’s sad that every time I see a close up of these guys I think of MODOK.
My first thoughts on seeing Frigg with an internal monologue: “Frigg, you’re back from the dead now! Are you okay?” “It depends, do I still think in those little grey boxes?” [Do I still think in those little grey boxes?] “I’m good.” [Oooh, I missed you little grey boxes! What fun we shall have together!]
FRIGG PAWN NOOB!!!
MACE IN THE FACE
Ah, so she finally took some time to go back to her class trainer and maybe dropped a few spec points, eh?
I love how surprised she looks.
Holy Shit, Frigg just Exalted!
PALLYPOWER Awesome! :D
You’re not really a hero until you die and live to tell about it.
Its an odd place for this to happen, but except for the last panel I don’t remeber Frigg ever looking that much like a girl before.
Heh. I think she looked her best in panel 4.
Giant Rock Mans? What about the giant Elec Mans?
It’d be hilarious if they were Giant Bubble Mans.
That is exactly how I found religion, too.
While bludgeoning someone in the head with a heavy metal object?
… Come to think of it, me too, actually. Huh. Strange.
Church of Kratos
I thought Kratos was an atheist. Huh, oh well.
Quaver before the might of Holy Word: Fuck It.
Fuckin’ A, I love Frigg.
Does this mean she is the true champion of the Bloodshot Eye? Or, as she comes to know His true name, Lord Stink Eye.
Now that she is a Paladin, I cant wait to see her lay hands on Byron. Think Best will get jealous?
I thought she already had laid hands on him, or at least laid mace.
Hah!Now Frigg officially resembles my curren’t DnD character(or the other way around) in 100% :D “Yeah,yeah,I believe,now let me SMITE THEM IN THE FACE!” :3
In spite of what the alt text says, that mace is not equivalent to her heart. It’s equivalent to another hard knob of her anatomy. And that one’s also huge.
You know I’m actually glad its not the madness thats been whispering in Frigg’s ear. That’s Byron’s thing. It’s kind of cool to see Frigg may have her own thing to deal with.
Being blessed by some strange god with unimaginable awesomeness is now a problem that needs to be dealt with?
It is if the god isn’t really an awesome one. Could be one that demands chastity.
Ooh, God-blocked. Not so good.
When you said blessed I just imagined Frigg’s new God just being a giant haed of Brian Blessed ‘Oh Just Kill HIM My Loyal FRIGG!”
Behold the face of God: http://i.thisislondon.co.uk/i/pix/2010/03/31-blessed-415.jpg
That actually fits Frigg pretty well. Though, I bet he didn’t realize that she had been resurrected. Her sudden usage of “Smite Evil” was probably triggered by Blessed realizing that “Gordon’s Frigg’s ALIVE?!”
It turns out that the head was just decorative and in no way a critical part of the golem’s body.
Mace, meet Evil! EVIL, MEET MACE!!!
i just love Frigg…
So far this voice has told Frigg that she is unstoppable, and to show no mercy, because she will receive none. Not the most… compassionate of deities, if indeed that’s what is going on here. Have to say, love the look John gave that panel. That’s the kind of things holy warriors in fantasy stuff should do to set them apart from regular fighters.
GIANT ROCK MANS should be a t-shirt
she could be a cleric.
Brian Blessed as a patron deity?!!
My god how will the rest of the pantheon, sorry pantheons cope with the sheer enormity of it all!
Wat Tyler? Why yes, he did lead a peasant revolt in England in the 1300s. But you really should focus on the task at hand, Frigg.
