Y’wanna know how I still have sticky fingers?
Cause I think y’know how I got these scars.
@alt text: “well, I’ve felt sort of torn since the Harki thing. Part of me feels a bit cut up about Byron, but…”
She was a little shorthanded there for a while.
to be fair, he did treat her rather sharply
Well I’m sure they’ll be able to cut through the awkward tension given enough time. But it’ll come down to how the two of them feel about it anyway you slice it.
Way to make a long story short, after making a short person shorter.
Bandit: A small grain of hope in a tall mug of unstrained mead.
I’m sure they can cut to the chase over the trifurcation.
“Split, even. I had a lot on my shoulders back then.”
“The Harki incident left me beside myself.”
“No bard feelings, though.”
“However, I would like to axe Byron why he lashed out at me.”
“It definitely caused a split in the party.
Still a chance they can bury the hatchet
Preferably somewhere other than Bandit this time.
“It’s my fault, really. I should have been keeping a sharp eye on the berserker.”
I love this community so much! ^^
This exchange, the way Bandit is walking, suggests to me the character of the assistant… What was her name again?
Carol. Been calling it for along time now.
Carol! Yes, that was it. Thanks.
That’s a very good observation… now I see it, too.
When Bandit turns out to be Skynet, won’t you all be surprised?
Bandit’s a thief, right? She probably mugs their enemies to fund the operation.
Points for the inadvertant pun… being that Bandit is playing with a mug….
Are you positive it was inadvertent?
She wants to merge guildes! Get free guild perks!
So? SO?! SOOOOOOO?! D:
why does the good general hate beef and pork, anyway. jeez.
They’re women. Of course they’re into sewing.
funny you should mention “a needle pulling thread”…
Great lighting in this :w
A note to preceed ‘la’
If a Payet Best falls in the forest, will a Bandit materialise behind the next tree?
They’re playing an MMO. Bandits materialize; that’s how it works.
Your forgetting we fist saw Bandit picking pockets during one of Best’s little shows at a tavern. So they can be in the same room at once, it’s not like one is a spare ;)
Okay – Bandit’s gotta be either a ringer, an AI-controlled NPC, or a second character played by whoever plays Best.
Except that, as people have linked to, Bandit and Best have been seen in the same strips, so tat‘s probably out.
Looking here, there are five figures floating in bottles – two female, three male.
And, beginning here, we see interviews with five shadowy figures – again, two female, three male, who appear to match to Byron, Frigg, Gravedust, Sy’rnj and Best.
Bandit appears to be the odd one out of the party – the one who doesn’t seem to be solidly-linked to a “real world” controller immersed in the game.
yes, but Bandits main colour of purple matched the tie that Dedalus wears, which is how most of the other characters were also matched to the tubes. Most thought that she was a “plant” played by Dedalus.
She’s not wearing purple now.
Also, the cultists wore a lot of purple.
She was when she showed up.
Syr’nj isn’t wearing green right now.
I think we’ll see everyone in different sets of clothes that don’t match their known color scheme. You can only wear the same clothes for so many weeks in a row before they start to stink a bit.
Syr’nj IS green.
Considering the looming specter of their relatively recent unpleasant deaths it’s quite natural for their social interactions to be a bit stiff.
But once they talk out these grave matters I’m confident they’ll be able to bury all this tension and resurrect their easy camaraderie.
Their Esprit De Corpse if you will.
You shouldn’t have made such a dead giveaway for what is still to come in the story.
Now, the scenario writer(s) is (are) in a dead-end.
And thus was an internets won.
Still trying to figure out how she isn’t dead.
They’re trapped inside of an MMO right? How long have You ever stayed dead in one of those?
Well, when I managed to get my corpse wedged between Teldrassil and Bloodmyst Isle I was dead for a good long time.
Oh. Wait. Yeah. Carry on.
Self-rez came in two patches ago.
She took longer to walk to her corpse.
Only because her legs were detached from each other.
Now there’s a gruesome image: left and right side hopping all out-of-kilter, while they hold the bleeding middle…
I think I just creeped myself out.
Is the mug tip an Inception-style reality test? Just checking how things work in the game world?
Someone might have left a coin under there.
LOVE the fork and knife crest above the entrance to the dinner hall in panel 3.
That boar must’ve been bigger than the moose! Get me a rasher off that guy.
First the so’ing, then the scissoring
BAM – Fan service and we take this strip in an awkward direction for all concerned
Bandit’s face in the last panel does leave very little room to imagine anything else. Either that, or it leaves way too much room.
You be the judge.
Possibilities for where this scene is headed:
Bandit is trying to figure out how to politely ask Syr to buy a hat so she can steal it.
Syr’nj has recognized that the real Bandit – the one they just re-met in the bar – has been replaced by a non-purple-wearing doppelganger and they’re both about to pull weapons.
Sound of Music soundtrack.
Bandit is about to show Syr’nj to the lab featured on the title page, where she intends to have her make all the guild’s meals.
gnome jodhpurs?? I’m not sure how i feel about that.
I like how her first request was “Give me a tour of the place” instead of “Whoa, before we go anywhere, how are you still alive?”
Have you ever asked the question “Oh by the way, you were dead. What the hell?” Probably a little more awkward to broach that topic than one would think.
Indeed. There are some things you just don’t bring up in polite conversation. Though I can’t fathom how she escaped the pub area without Frigg blurting out the question.
Did Syr feel a need to be polite with Bandit?
This does explain why the nun had such a fangasm over Frigg, though. If Bandit’s been recruiting for the Guild, she probably exaggerated their deeds a bit.
.. Frigg still pretty awesome
To be fair… Frigg DID get the Holy Smite. And THAT was awesome. Exaggerated? Maybe not. Maaaaybeee noooot…. -scrutinizing glare-
Bandit never saw the Holy Bash… no one did.
Stealth. Bandit saw everything.
Bandit has been a massive frigg fangirl all along.
Arkerra, where most herding herbivores are larger than bears.
You mean the mega-fauna isn’t real? LIES!
Well, there’s got to be *something* for lv. 5 noobs to fight near their hometown.
