“I mean, we’d be like some stereotype-defying woman, wearing heavy armor and bludgeoning her way through…uh, I mean, we’d be like – like a guitar-playing shit elf, am I right? Guys?”
Stay out of the conversation, LIKE A BOSS!
Wearing plate armor in the sun, LIKE A BOSS!
Smoking an eternal cigar, LIKE A BOSS!
I like Red-Armored Enormous Guy. Or, as I’ll call him henceforth, RAEG.
Coming up with awesome nicknames, LIKE A BOSS!!! ;) ^^
So if he fights one of the mechanical fighters, would that be RAEG Against The Machine?
Looks like foppish elf can’t stand up against the mighty glare of the females.
And apparently he needs a new top hat. How he’s dressed like a dandy while having a ruined hat is beyond me.
Foppy Elf Dude. FED. Thanks, you helped me come up with a new nickname!
Your nicknames remind me of That 70′s Show. FES!
Actually, the torn top hat is my favorite part of his ensemble. He’s a dandy of the streets.
Makes complete sense, actually.
He’s come up in the world but he’s holding on to his roots.
His hair and outfit kind of remind of Voltaire… the singer, not the philosopher.
*looks at strip again*
Glad I’m not the only one who thought of that.
Didn’t help that all I could think of as a result was…
“What did I ever to do you / that you should treat me this way?”
“As you’ll answer it, take heed
This Slave commit no Violence upon
Himself. I’ve been deceiv’d. The Publick Safety
Requires he should be more confin’d; and none,
No not the Princes self, permitted to
Confer with him. I’ll quit you to the King.
Vile and ingrate! too late thou shalt repent
The base Injustice thou hast done my Love:
Yes, thou shalt know, spite of thy past Distress,
And all those Ills which thou so long hast mourn’d;
Heav’n has no Rage, like Love to Hatred turn’d,
Nor Hell a Fury, like a Woman scorn’d.”
With a Hey-nonny-nonny and a Ha-cha-cha.
Much as I like Syrn’j…seems too bossy.Untill I can cure you…just comes off as controling. Meh…why do I get bad vibes bout it?
Also love the nun lady. Silent but..just love her
Comes off more like “I don’t want to lose you” to me. But then again, I can be a hopeless romantic at times.
Oh, hey, I get the new guy? I like the new guy!
…Wait. I was Best before. Is this some kind of hint?
Huh. Many people have remarked on a continuity of gravatars. Did you delete cookies, perhaps?
She’s a commanding officer of a military operation during a war. If she’s not at least a little bossy and controlling, she’s not doing her job.
at least she hasn’t taken to chain smoking cigars and spouting abuse. you know, things like “run FASTER MAGGOTS!”
“im stuck with a bunch a bleedin NINNIES!!”
She’s not short enough to be MacArthur, don’t expect her to be MacArthur.
I’d expect such remarks from Frigg anyway. Well, similar but more colorful.
I’ve been in those relationships: “I love you…now change.”
Change in this instance doesn’t seem so bad when it keeps him from killing all of his teammates.
I’ve been in those relationships. “I love you…now stop killing your teammates.”
She’s gotten all of her methods out of an Elf-Help manual.
You know, I think I’m starting to see the reason they’re called Shit Elves.
It has surprisingly little to do with their lack of magic.
Just wait ’till you see him in a combat situation. For all we know this guy’s second best.
Indeed, I’m expecting a huge payet-off.
Excellent! We have hissing!
We’d Best continue if we want to achieve Boo’s. Then we might be able to get a drink.
Well, we wouldn’t want you to be thirsty. Booooooo!
Heh. I was just thinking “Shit Elves; not always blonde”.
No, but they always put their foot in it.
Byron the Belittled
Byron the Bitch-slapped
Byron the Pussy Whippedohwaithe’snotgettinganyishe?
God damn it just lean closer and kiss her already.
Humiliation doesn’t really set the mood like candles and sweet wind does..
No, but it does set the mood like candlewax and sweaty whips do.
is it just me or is frigg the most appropriate avatar you could have gotten for that comment?
Shit! That is just perfect!
A sweet jacket, some fly-ass cuffs, and now a scruffy TOP HAT?!
This guy… is now my favorite guy.
at least in terms of outfit… I concur!
Ditto, man. Ditto. (He actually reminds me, sartorially, of an old character of mine, so I’m inclined to like him.)
Agreed, this fellow is of the capital sort, my chap! Nevertheless, E-merl appears to be a fellow who has, through various misfortunes, come on some trying times. The patchwork on his distinguished trousers and the raggedness of his headpiece would indicate so. Even so, he is quite chipper despite his own keen intellect for putting ones foot in ones own mouth. I second your notion, good sir.
Byron the Berserker is sent to his room in panel 3.
To await the sweet embrace of Syrn’j …. *fangirl dreaming*
Like Jeans, Tophats are actually sold in that state. It’s cool if it looks worn.
eyes please, eyes! now that it was drawn to my attention, i can’t help but see when a character is supposed to be staring, but you can’t see their eyes!
Lol, gravedust needs an eyeball is panel 5.
In regards to the eyes
In today’s strip there are no missing faces or facial parts; Syr and Bandit are far enough away that we can’t see “the whites of their eyes” as it were; plus the artist is in this way placing more emphasis on TopHat MacFootinMouth’s reaction to them. Gravedust might be missing an eye, but maybe not, if he is still turning his face about to glower.
Now, last time, Syr had glower eyebrows & eye line (if not eyes per se) and Bandit was missing a FACE – no eye line, no mouth line, nuthin! That *was* a little disconcerting, but could be an oversight.
Or a disturbing clue about Bandit….
Elf Dandy is gonna be awesome as soon as he gets out of gray gear. At level 25 his class learns Mail, and he can quest for the purple Best Bracer to replace the cloth ones he’s got now.
I hear it’s out in the desert, next to the ruins of a sky elf temple.
I think we’ve got a new Best shit-elf.
They’re like pets. One dies, you go to the mall to pick a new one up.
Excellent. I always figured Gravy for a good harumpher.
Every one keeps complaining about the eyes, but I’m pretty sure that’s stylistic not corner cutting. seems to me every time a character has only lines for eyes, it’s because their annoyed or giving a wicked stare to some one. so, you know, squinting.
Also, RAEG (I’ve decided it’s pronounced Rage)? might be the best charicter ever, I kind of hope that he never talks… but we still se more of him.
yeah come on people! its stylistic! kinda like emotes, or maybe its a tad bit of influence from anime….
srsly is not a big deal…
I agree, I don’t mind the missing facial features.
Aw, Frigg. I made a post without making a pun. I’d Best find some way to fix this.
Indeed, that’s why I made up the nickname, because RAEG (pronounced “rage”) is the coolest name ever for the coolest character ever.
Look at him, though. He couldn’t give less of a shit. He’s the most nonchalant guy around, thus, the coolest.
Considering that Best may or may not have been named after Peter Best, I’m trying to come up with something fitting for our new Shit Elf.
All I’m coming up with is Norton I, Emperor of these United States and Protector of Mexico.
I think before we discuss what the name the Artful Dodger there, we should question why he hasn’t stolen a better hat yet.
For everyone trying to come up with names for the new characters, they already got one in http://guildedage.net/webcomic/chapter-11/chapter-11-page-23/:
Nun : Rachel
REG : Scipio (if I’m reading the balloons’ tails correctly
E-merl, huh? Best be a damned good cook, then.
I see sulky berserker. Don’t pat the sulky berserker…
That guy with the top hat might be my new second-favourite character. I wish everyone dressed like that in real life.
