I’m already loving this!
Frigg + chess = Crazy Awesome
This cannot possibly go wrong.
For the readers.
For them, it’s a whole different game.
Frigg only pawn in game…. of life.
She’s queen of the board. Be certain to check out her moves.
If Best gets on board, she might be caught between a rook and a hard place.
I came here for the comic, but i stay here for the puns! ;) ^^
Agreed, the alt-text is full of win
…I don’t get it?
Goes way back to one of the redhead’s most memorable hijinx
(link might not work right, but try it anyway)
(and the forum entries are worth checking too!)
Think the Alt-text comes alittle late given where Frigg is getting on the board.
Did anyone render that image yet?
Peruse the comments to that strip, it was rendered several times
One of the renderings can be found in the forums, actually.
Too late! too late! she’s RIGHT. THERE!
At least she didn’t pawn off the responsibility. Now she just needs to rook alive. If she does, it’ll be a knight to remember. Here’s bishop-ing for a quick victory. Regardless, we’re all queen on knowing what’ll happen next. I, for one, king hardly wait.
…I just had to get that off my chess.
Check out the puns, mate.
I just thought I’d mention in passing that your comments really should be put in check. You seem very taken with your witticisms. While I’m sure you think it’s a clever gambit, in time you’ll find it only promotes sloppy wordplay, Mate.
Maybe I’ll just en passent this thread…
I’m sure they had something similar on Castle….
I’m sorry, did my many puns leave you in a Deep Blue funk? I didn’t mean to ex-Kasperov-ate you. I certainly wasn’t Bobby Fischering for compliments.
We square? :-)
Your Checkered post seems to hold a Monopoly of all possible chess puns. I can only hope you’ll Connect For another try at this because there’s still some Trouble out there that someone, I can’t Guess Who, might find a Clue to Reversi this situation to Go and trap you in a Mouse Trap.
Uno, I don’t think anyone can Articulate a better set of puns. Nice work.
Pretty sneaky sis.
It seems the time for Frigg to do questionable things to the queen has arrived.
Given Frigg does use a mace, the proper tool is at the ready.
This isn’t the time to pull a Best, Frigg!
It’s always the Best time!
So, uh, looks like she doesn’t remember she actually sucks at this. …unless she’s planning on bashing all the statues with her mace and calling it good.
When has that ever not been her plan?
Shade of Aran next?
Either that or sacrifice Ron to get to the potion riddle.
Computing hasn’t been the same since they taught that one to Deep Blue.
No Shade was before Chess event, Prince is next, crap they only have one ranged dps…this cant end well.
Wait… Frigg knows how to play CHESS? She really is the perfect woman…
Umm… not exactly. See chapter 7: pages 10, 15, 16, 21, 22.
She doesn’t know how to play chess as much as she knows how to break people that like chess.
Oh… oh, right. Forgot about that little episode.
*sigh* too good to be true.
Chess event? This is my favorite boss ever!
Frigg takes queen. Check-dat-ass-mate.
That is all.
It’s good to be the king.
Woot!!! White Queen ravishment in…in…damn, next week.
The dialogue in the second panel made me crack up.
“Ghost of Forethought cheats”
Huh. Friendly conversation between Best and Syr’nj, and even a little flirty. I never saw that happening after the way Best brained Byron.
wait wait wait..so many comments and not one mentioning H.Potter by now? well thats a nice surprise.
At least i know “this” chess event here will be alot more fun , Especially when Frigg is involved.
I had actually forgotten that Harry Potter had that chess event that one time. They didn’t exactly invent it, and I don’t know that Harry Potter is generally deeply associated with Chess in anyone’s mind. We should be good.
I always cheat in the chess event in Tales of the Sword Coast. Just kill them from across the board.
Was there a chess event in neverwinter or Baten Kaitos? I feel like those two games might have had a chess event.
iirc, there was a vaguely chess-ish event in Neverwinter. Prison District. “Secret” entrance to the prison via tunnel beneath the widow’s house.
Yeah, we’ve got mirrors and giant chess sets. Now all we need is a three headed dog, a devil’s snare, flying keys, and a logic puzzle involving bottles of poison, and if the gang gets through all that, they’ll finally find the Philosopher’s Stone.
Hm, wait. That’s not what they’re looking for, is it?
Frigg x W.Queen OTP
She BETTER start smashing all the pieces. That’d be kind of awesome. On an unrelated note, this entire excursion is starting to bring back memories of Karazhan.
Damn it creators… you have it don’t you?
Some time ago you admitted you guys basically made your own rule 34. Unsurprising, many artists do such things.
But now I’m convinced that you got more white-queen pictures then what the fans made.
This makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.
We’ll just go ahead and stick to our code of never confirming or denying anything. Especially on this point.
Naturally I will take this completely neutral answer as a detailed confession of affirmation and cite it as such wherever I go.
You know, it just occurs to me now that just about the entire party would rule 63 fantastically. Best and Frigg especially. Not quite sure what we’d do with Gravedust though…
I bet nobody realized Frigg would be the most excited about this.
Um… While the white queen does stand to the left of the king, she also stands on her own colour. Square A1 is normally black.
It’s the right way around in the mirror :)
It’s the King in drag. That kind of queen.
This ain’t your momma’s chess! This is Sky Elf chess!
Keep her away from the white queen ? Why ?
She has a history of… molesting the queen. And has threatened to do so again.
Now that you mention it, I remember that part. Frigg is really unscrupulously … unscrupulous.
Have to mention how great the strips look, John Waltrip’s artwork has really been outstanding.
a very nice compliment from the National Sarcasm Society.
Yeah, but if they do this with only 5/10 people, they won’t get Guild credit and the achievement! *grumble grumble*
Really enjoying the comic. Seeing an adventuring party do adventuring party stuff is where this comic really hits for me.
The art continues to be very good.
“But…there’s a walkway there, on the side…we could just, y’know, go around it…oh, never mind.”
Once, just once, I want to see the solution to the chess trap be “do not engage; go around it.”
…Very War Games, now that I think of it.
I just noticed that all the pieces are elves. (Not really surprising considering.) But the rooks are the stockiest elves I’ve ever seen.
And the queen’s the only one without a weapon yet she’s the meanest bitch on board.
Don’t worry, Frigg’ll fix that.
Best is looking to bed the other female party member, I see. He’s probably sad that he missed the boat with Bandit.
Considering I doubt he even understands the retort Syr’nj gave him, I doubt what he wants is the same as what he’ll get.
Perhaps he feels short changed.
*curls up in a ball in the corner*
I’m fine until they reach Anub’arak. “Rise, minions! DEVOUR!” *twitch* *twitch* *shudder*
I love this comic, but the queens are on the wrong color. Queens to their color at the start of a game.
Truth. Bringing attention to this.
OH, SURE, IF YOU GO BY *HUMAN* RULES. IGNORE THE FINE ELVEN TRADITION OF PUTTING THE QUEEN ON THE OPPOSITE COLOR. RACIST!
Racist ? Meh … whatever you say, pointy ears … :-P
*goes on a flipping off spree against elves* ^^
Someone call the Cape!
Apparently, I’m the only fan of cheesy b-rate television series here. (A series which, I might add, was cut dreadfully short.)
I’m expecting Wizard’s Chess to be happening right about…… Monday.
Too bad they don’t have a red headed freckle faced outcast kid to save their asses. Oh wait… does pink count as red in this ‘verse?
Interesting that although the knights and bishops are mirror images (even to having a left-hand lancer), the rooks are differently armed. Nice quirky set :D
Didn’t notice until you mentioned it, but yeah. That’s really odd. Especially because the rooks on opposite corners have the same armaments, so it looks like the symmetry is along the line A1 to G8, but the kings and queens are still opposite each other in the same files. Trippy.
Showing my age here…but this gave me fond memories of Battle Chess.
Ah if only there were someone in the party that came from a chess obsessed culture.
That was the lovely thing about Bandit. By the end of short tenure, she really was a character of many parts.
Archive dive complete. Announcing the latest Guilded Age addict: ME! *waves to everyone from P&A and Fans*
You made the reverse version of the journey I completed, I started with GA and ended up archive diving on P&A. XP
Welcome aboard, FyingFish. I’m kind of new here myself.
Welcome. Stay a while and li–
As I recall, in Durlag’s Tower, the strategy I used here was to strafe the entire chessboard with arrows of detonation, then I had Minsc rush in to claim the +3 great sword.
OWwww… come on!!! Plagiarizing Harry Poter 1??? Frigg Ron will play whom? Weasley???
Does anyone still have the link to frig having sex with the white queen chess piece?
thats wizard chess!
and no, DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES GET BETWEEN FRIGG AN THE QUEEN! then again it is just a stone one….
I’m not sure if I should be more worried for the adventurers or the game of Chess.
Will the White Queen please bend over!
