Ever the subtle one, Frigg.
Well, it’s working, isn’t it?
She should have left the bluffing to Scipio. No one can detect the true motives of someone with a squint like that.
to be fair, in that panel Frigg doesn’t even have EYES.
I really want a scene with Scipio playing poker now.
Only to be defeated by Brock.
Scipio versus Gravedust: the ultimate showdown.
You have the perfect gravatar for that comment.
She’s going to get the measure of those gnomes.
Keyne eyes like her’s? Gnothing’ll get past her.
That’s gno joke!
I think she gnome well,
Never change, Frigg.
They… they can’t not know. What did she tell them she had an ironic nickname or something?
They’re lying. Lying like rugs. Like cheap, cheap rugs glued to the head of a bald man.
So kind of hanging then?
Depends how much glue, really. Some toupees seem able to defy gravity.
Frigg is subtle with a capital B.
Well, it’s working, isn’t it? ;-)
WAIT WHAT IS THIS GNOME PERSON YOU ARE SPEAKING OF
I THOUGHT ALL BANDITS WERE MALE HUMANS OR MONSTERS
Or the pet dog of Jonny Quest.
Frig should threaten to play chess at them. That’ll … probably piss them of more. Never mind.
Is anyone else getting a batman vibe from the last panel?
I am. Heh, Bandit is practically a fantasy version of Batgirl.
Smooth as screws, our dear Frigg.
Okay, she’s a bad liar, but hopefully it went over their heads.
I dunno, I think she was pitching that lie a bit low, even for the gnomes.
Well it’s not like it would be a good idea to swing the mace and go for distance on one of their hats right now. She plainly doesn’t see eye to eye with them and what else has she got to work with?
True anything else would seem a bit underhanded, and that’s on the level that they apparently see Bandit at. Wouldn’t want to lower themselves any further in the eyes of the gnomes. I wonder why the gnomes always seem to look down on other races though. It’s like they’re compensating for something.
It’s not about the lie. She’s shouting to ensure both the crowd’s attention and to make so much noise nobody see’s Bandit. Look at panel 4: Bandit is within earshot and clearly visible from the crowd. But as long as all eyes and ears are on this loud stupid and obviously lying human, nobody is actually watching the aforementioned and apparently well known in this area Bandit Keens. That dude is getting such a great stealth bonus right now.
Timelost had the perfect avatar for that statement but I think Kagato is absolutely correct (though I didn’t guess before reading thir comment.) Well played, Frigg! Well played. She’ll be a chess master yet.
The gnomes have a point. Cardiac arrest is very much the kind of thing the feds would do to them.
Or possibly just Ardaic Arrest.
So many hats stolen.
Panel 5: Keynespotted
That was so horrible, I don’t know whether to applaud you or lock you in the stocks.
Frigg has a proven effectiveness on gnomes!
Huh. Wait. This just popped in my head.
Is that name based on John Maynard Keynes? The guy who created Keynesian economics?
I wonder if her father was Milton Keynes, no relation to the English City?
my first thought was of Liet-Kynes from Dune.
I’ve been wondering that for a while, but I can’t find a connection.
Economists will steal your hat?
I guess we know the tall and the short of it.
Looks like our group of adventurers is in trouble folks… but wait… what’s this?
Random Frigg goodness from nowhere, once again we’re saved by Caps Lock.
Just play chess at’em, Frigg!
It’s the truth, from a certain point of view.
Apparently she told them her name was “Bandit Jones”.
I just realized who Scipio reminds me of: Columbo. I think it’s the Cigar of Badassery.
Oddly true. It increases his aura of total unflappability and calm confidence in his own abilities, even if others doubt him.
Oh, I see her! Bandit is in the backround of panel four, sneaking into the sewer! Now the whole loudly shouting to distract them makes more sense.
You know, if a fight breaks out I think they can take the gnomes. Unless those are all +4 pushbrooms of awesomeness or something.
One, gnomish devices/casters can seriously level the playing field.
Two, we know any outburst of actual violence will be seen by Ardaic and his fellow authorities as a serious cock-up. In times of war allies can’t afford to be literally at each other’s throats.
Also, small size modifiers can be a real pain.
Gravedust has had some pretty awesome expressions, but the fourth panel is probably my favorite, given the situation.
Well what other profession are you going to go into when your name is Bandit?
Nominative determinism, people.
Bandit Keynes: “In Gastonia!”
Scipio = Captain Awesome. Chuck fans will understand.
