What will those gnomes think of next?
What I meant to say was.
“A thermascope!? Who gnomes what they will think up next?”
And I still say that one gnome looks like Charlton Heston.
Charles Heston does not sweat.
And if he did, the sweat would cure Chuck Norris.
Yeah, don’t try to stop them or anything guys.
Wouldn’t have to stop them if it was a clever facsimile and not the actual horn.
Or if it does not matter. After all, it is all a diversion.
The horn is a tactical loss for a strategic goal.
Yeah, that was uncharacteristically stupid of them. Either they had a copy or they were looking for an excuse to trash shit.
If they could build a convincing copy then so could anyone and then the Gnomes wouldn’t need to destroy the horn, just say someone made it to look Gnomish.
In the end, the high command has already seen the horn and know it’s Gnomish. It’s still stupid to hand the Horn over but even more stupid for the two professors to destroy it right in front of the team and then tell them to ‘get the hell out.’
Not sure how this was suppose to through off any suppression unless the Gnomes are counting on team to hand ‘em more stuff to burn.
Those gnomes sure know how to turn up the heat.
wow, Scipio is much larger than Frigg!
Frigg has never appeared to be particularly large to me (neither has Byron for that matter), she’s just meaner and tougher than most of her opponents. :)
As they burned it hurt because I was so happy for you.
Are you suggesting that this was a triumph?
I think I saw a note stating ‘HUGE SUCCESS’…
It’s hard to overstate the gnome’s satisfaction right now.
Well, the Thermascope was a lie!
How does Scipio manage to always be cool? Is it a medical condition?
He doesn’t look so cool in the last panel. He looks PISSED.
He reminds me of Bruce Willis.
My instincts say to pick them up by their ankles and dangle them over the ‘thermascope’ until they cry like little girls. Littler girls.
Well that might be true for innocent MEN Scipio, but these fine inventors are clearly innocent GNOMES.
If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the thermascope.
Just say NOPE to Thermascope!
Welp, that’s great.
The incriminating evidence is now molten slag metal, and on top of that, our merry band seems to be no closer to finding out who those illegal weapon traders are.
Then again, you know what they say…. ‘The one who smelt it, dealt it.’
ah, we need a gold star over here.
Concur…slipdance deserves a gold star of double entendre-ness
I think you’ll find his reach rather greater than yours, old boy. One of the advantages of height, y’know.
While it has been a faithful companion, your Companion Cube cannot accompany you through the rest of the test. If it could talk – and the Enrichment Center takes this opportunity to remind you that it cannot – it would tell you to go on without it, because it would rather die in a fire than become a burden to you.
I love you.
I imagine Scipio here sounds like the narrator from “Bastion”.
That man has a voice as smooth as a glass bottle. But with an edge to it, like what you might find inside that bottle.
…a tiny ship?
I wouldn’t really recommend drinking ships in bottles.
Not to say it hasn’t been done before:
Oh boy. We all know how reserved and unflappable Scipio is, even during the stress of combat. He looks pissed. I don’t what he’s going to do now that he’s pissed. Dangling one of them treacherous gnomes over the fire comes to mind, though…
Dangling them over the fire would put them inside the thermascope, and if you try holding your hand above a lit candle, you’ll find out that heat from a flame projects quite a bit upwards. Heat from an oven, trapped in a vertical pipe? Well, I’m pretty sure you’d quickly have a dead gnome in your hands, and then a pair of empty hands as the scorching heat makes you drop whatever you’re holding to quickly retract those hands.
(Though I suppose that fantasy physics might say that fire burns, and “above fire” is just warm.)
And the downside of the above would be… ?
Frigg: “Those blueprints look rather complex. Mind if I make some adjustments with my mace?”
…. Nah … to subtle.
I’m glad the gnomes still take time for tea in their workshops.
I hope nobody has a meltdown over this. :(
“You say our investigation’s been destroyed, as though we’re bound by any legal authority. We’re a GUILD, son. We do what the fuck we want.”
Besides, real evidence is being gathered by Bandit. They just need to keep Brainy McPlotscheme talking.
The irony of gnomes talking about reach to a man holding a very large sword is staggering.
Is it “Thermascope” or “Thermoscope”? There seems to be some difference of opinion.
Thermoscalp. They removed it from some hothead.
Love the details and the changes of perspective, well done!
How did that line of talk slip past the heroes? First they say “It came from here in our lab.” Then they say, “Let’s put it in this oven-like device to see where it came from.”
You just said you already knew where it came from.
“You will find the arm of the law is in fact very long, professor,” says Bandit, walking into the room dragging the body of Boy Pirate McDoucheypants.
Yeah, it’s a bit of a plot hole. Should’ve said that this device was based on the stolen prototype.
“That’s amazing! It discerns divine origins, you say? You know, I’ve always wondered… What are the divine origins of a gnome?”
This has got to be the most adorable steampunky trap I have ever seen.
Frigg never, ever, insinuates.
She just might incinerate though.
Gotta give it to him though, it takes balls to call someone “son” that it three times as large and ten times as heavy as you, and who is also casually smoking a cigar.
Well, he does have Scipio out-bearded.
That horn is fine, street mage is using an illusion on them or something :3
