Harki! Who goes there?
Don move a muscle, Iver got my eyes on you!
Harki really needs to get down off his high saur. With Don’s ears, he needs all the lug-xuries he can get.
Makbe if they had a Don’s ears party, they wouldn’t be such gluttons.
*lucrative. great comic.
I’m glad I decided to start monitoring for our crack squad of stealth proofers before hitting the sack. Thanks for the catch. Fixed.
that means there’s going to be retribution then, right? Are we finally going to see a PHILKAHN PUNCH!
Unfortunately, I swore to master Lei Kung that I would never use it unless the whole world was on the line.
Thanks for the additional typo spot. Fixed.
Old boss, same as the new boss, eh? XD
Little slow, someone beat you to it by 7 minutes!
Harki in da dino-HOUSE!
Fake finger grafts.
Bandages across the chest.
For those who were thinking it possible that “Harki’s Blood” was good enough to heal the wounds Byronzerker inflicted on Bandit, you have your answer.
His eartip is still missing too. Naughty, naughty lying Bandit.
It’s like the random avatar choose knows what people write. Spooky.
Man, your right. This thing is on immolating fire today.
Say what you will, but Harki isn’t a man who’d engage in hypocritical finger pointing. He’ll leap on your when he disagrees, but his burning intensity can be seen in all his other actions. This is a hole man.
True, but his holey crusade seems to be going just fine without the chateau generals.
Oh, and a general who stands on the front lines with his troops is a moron. Alexander the Great got away with it by being the luckiest bastard (seriously, even his mother admitted it) ever born. Genghis stayed back. Attila mostly stayed back. Patton stayed back. Napoleon stayed back. And Custer died horribly.
True, but Harki’s still seen as “great war chief” more than “general” by his own people, which calls for certain behavior. And unless Byron’s crazy has somehow left him unable to regenerate, he can get away with playing the part – at least until they hit mages.
Indeed. I was refering to his sarcastic insistance that the others, who are clearly more of the modern major general mould, and lack his ubiquitous regeneration.
Woah man, why you gotta all rain on our parade. Can’t you see we’re drinkin’ blood all up in this joint?
Harki is channeling his inner Dr. McNinja. Allez-oop!
They’re hedonistic despots with a thirst for power.
He’s a tyrannical zealot out for blood.
What can one Hawk-Person who’s getting too old for this nonsense do to keep it from all coming apart?
Find out next on Conquering Gastonia!
Get the season pass!
Harky’s a troll of the people, he knows what’s up.
The orc butler is really funny.
I think it’s a goblin.
Guilded Age has large goblins. (and I think they might object to the thought of orcs touching their food, that’s just a vibe I get from them.)
Yeah, I forgot they’re goblins. :/ Years of orcish indoctrination will do that.
That’s why I like Harki. He may be “the enemy,” but he’s very straightforward about things. No mere pigs replacing the farmer for him.
Harki might be more zealous now, but a few years after victory, I doubt he will pass on all hedonism. Even the craziest rulers gave in a little on Earth, so why not in fiction. Still, at least he does not start out as the total bastard his peers are and will probably be in better shape if they win and need to be cautious in regards to insurgents.
It happens in just about every revolution. The firebrands and true believers in the cause are kind enough to get themselves killed on the front lines, thereby leaving room for the politicos who are only in it for the power.
Not always, though. Brutus (the first Brutus – with the Tarquins) stayed a firebrand. He even had his own son executed for attempting to restore the monarchy. The problem is always the children. Ungrateful whelps! They have no notion of the sacrifices their parents made! Just because their parents insist on living austere, ascetic lives when everyone else is rolling loot, the children accuse them of being “stuck in the past” and “unreasonable”.
Agreed. Goblin Butler has that exact butler’s turn-of-the-mouth that says dignity and attentiveness before all else.
Due to last strips dairy-themed comments, I first read that as ‘orc butter‘.
Well, the humans seem to think of orcs as similar to cattle, so it’s not completely impossible…
Freakin’ typical. I go out, I rally all of the “lesser” races, I organize the troops, I get the army all the slaves it needs, so would it KILL them to help me ravage one. freaking. VILLAGE!?!??!!
(SP)Hawk is not impressed.
He’s not being sarcastic.
He genuinely is happy.
Nice to see you back Harki.
So, when Harki’s hand gripped the bannister, did the rather-butch-looking avian turn his head to look at the hand, or at the beaurocrats? Seemingly an insignificant detail, but the background implications could be enormous! Especially seeing how the avian steps aside, but maintains a deferent pose relative to Harki. I imagine much seething hostility in the mighty warlord’s voice, just now.
The avian guard looks terribly imposing, like some kind of Birdorian. In any case I think he knows who’s boss.
I don’t think he’s a guard. I think he’s the Avian boss/general/representative.
He seems awfully quiet for a non-guard. :P
I’m going with general too. Why would he join in the shallow conversation? It might not interest him. Maybe he’s thinking deep thoughts. Maybe he’s actually paying attention to the battle outside, unlike Sirs Gobblemunch and Gluttonpants.
In panel 2, at first thought that was a goblin head on the platter.
Hmmm… Bandages on his chest, huh? I wonder how long it’s been?
Looking at his old outfit again, it’s possible the original stab wound has healed. In this light, we don’t know whether those are bandages or the regular straps for his armor; see here for reference to his old armor.
Maybe with troll blood existing wounds close but things chopped off don’t regrow and can’t be reattached?
Oddly, that brings back the possibility of Bandit’s excuse for being alive being true.
I think those are the straps of his shoulder armor, which we have seen before in ch. 8. Also, we did see the wound in his chest closing up within a minute of Byron ramming the spear through him: http://guildedage.net/webcomic/chapter-8/chapter-8-page-22/
Yep, nothing quite says luxury like lounging around in plate armor.
Don takes “having everything served on a silver plate” to the next level.
There’s a difference between fast healing and regeneration. He quickly “healed” his achilles tendons when bandit sliced them because nothing was removed. He did not “heal” his fingers because they were gone. I’m guessing trolls can heal and can’t regenerate.
I read that “how’s the war?” comment said in the same way one would say “how’s the steak?”.
“It’s a bit overdone. I mean, the killing, the raping, sure, but do we really need all these butter churns?”
Hawk dude could give a flying fuck.
Someday, Harki, someday, young troll stoners will wear your face on a shirt as a symbol of fighting “the Man”, man.
In all the universes I’ve been fortunate enough to play in….trolls regen, but it takes time to rebuild a finger for example :) but they always grow back, except for acid or fire or beheading. just my 2 cents.
