Friends in respectable stances team
I don’t E-Merl is capable of being respectable.
on the contrary, I think E-Merel accidentallied all over the pose.
*cue awesome pose music*
HOW COULD YOU MISS?! HE WAS THREE FEET IN FRONT OF YOU!
Sh*t just got real.
“Strike a pose!”
E-Merl knows what I’m talking about.
You just reminded me of Louis-Jose Houde, a comedian. x3 Talking about how his sister was really into Madonna when he was a kid, she’d always put her hand up and yell that. :3 Funneh.
Is that perchance a Deadpool quote?
argh, typed something wrong.. that didn’t work…
See now, that just reminds me of Roronoa Zoro from One Piece, mocking his equally trapped comrades because unlike him, they had failed to pick a cool pose to end up frozen in when the trap took hold.
Kon’kr is having a bad fur day.
Wait a minute, what exactly *is* E-Merl? Is he a sky-elf?
In any case, there’s only two actual humans in this bunch, and they can both kick your ass.
Oh, wait, Scipio and Rachel… Hey, they didn’t get to epicpose!
I request a wallpaper version of the fourth panel.
Ack, posted to the wrong spot, sorry.
I posit that Scipio swooned due to blood loss, and Rachel is busy holding him up.
Scipio ? Swooning because of the blood-loss from his wounded ear ?
You must be kidding.
No way, NO WAY a human tank like him would just swoon because a little scratch.
Yeah, it is unlikely, but it was the only thing I could think of.
Oh Rach and Scip went behind a tree for a quickie…
And yes, they too are EpicPosing right now.
I will leaf that to your imagination.
It takes 4 people to hold the spotlight for the Epic Halo. Budgets are tight so the crew was too short handed. To keep the resource costs to a minimum, and keep the members of the original team in the Epic Freeze Frame, the producers had Scipio, who counts as three men on his own, and Rachel hold up the spotlight. Initially they were going to use E-merl instead of Rachel, but they found that he would bring a whole heck of a lot to the scene..comic relief wise…
Read back one page; Syr tells Scip and Rach to stay with the Grand High Druid (sis).
Apparently, there’s a bit of distance between where they were talking to Fr’Nj and where ear-armor-guard intercepted the lynch-mob.
That might be why the approaching elves only now realize that the humans look different; they just now arrived to strike a pose of their own.
I was just wondering that myself. I don’t know why, but my brain seemed to block out his ears until just now. What a pose! Hoping he’s no a shit elf. :)
Shit elves have lost their magic, but E-merl is clearly a magic user. Winter elf maybe?
Has E-Merle used magic? I’m pretty sure he uses magical trinkets exclusively.
Periodically he does some form of independent prestidigitation. And Best (also a shit elf) had some basic magic that he could channel through his guitar. It looks like shit elves have some for mof lingering magic, but nothing like the hugely powerful arcana of sky elves, or the (as yet unidentified) nature magic of the wood elves.
See, I thought it was the guitar that was magic, not Best. No different from any warrior using a magic sword.
Looking back though it does seem to be indicated that E-merle knows at least a few minor cantrips.
It’s quite possible that Best was just using a magic guitar – I’m not sure if it’s ever fully explained what the limits/source of his Bardic magic are. I suppose it’s also possible that, just as humans can learn to do cool magical(?) tricks (see Frigg channeling her belief), shit elves could learn magic as well. That would explain why E-Merl has basic cantrips, even though shit elves are supposed to have lost their magic.
Cast page says he’s half-elf.
Doesn´t that actually make him a Shit-elf? Till now i thought all half-elves are called Shit-elves cause unlike Winter, Sky and Forest they got human blood mixed in their veins.
It might be that Shit Elf is the term for a Half Elf Asshole. In other words, you don’t say it about them or to their face unless you hate them because it’s just insulting slang. I know that Best used it earlier on (or it was used around his introduction, definitely) but I’m pretty sure that was applied because of the way he acts or ironically? I might be wrong. XD
No, Shit Elves are a race of elves that lost their elf-magic.
Payet Best is just described as “Elf” in the cast page where E-Merl’s entry says “Half-Elf”, so there’s a distinction there.
The only real question is what kind of elf he’s half-and-half.
You are all basically correct here.
Shit Elf is essentially a catchall term for any non pure-blooded Elf, someone who’s lost their “Elf-Magick” due to being mixed. The term can also apply to exiles.
“Lost their elf-magick” is meant to be more figurative than not. Like, they lost that thing that makes them truly a member of that elf faction: the purity. Something “magickal.”
So, does the yellow skin actually signify shit elf status, or do Best and E-merl simply originate from a yellow race of elves?
I think they just smoke too much…
I believe E-Merl is a Shit Elf, all the magic we’ve seen him do involves items.
Somebody pointed out on the cast page it says he’s a half-elf, so this is wrong unless it turns out he’s half-shit-elf, which would be a tragedy.
He has used magic on several occasions without items. Can’t remember the page but he definitely threw fireballs at the insurgents at the docks. I don’t think he has any ‘shit’ in his blood.
The fire is from his band of summer flames, I think. The independent magic is more like the muffins he spontaneously produced from his apparently mundane hat.
Ginyu Force! Assemble!
HOKUSEN KAI! HOKUSEN KAI! <:3
Its toku sentai, Ginyu Tokusentai
I think toku sentai means something like: special forces or maybe special fighting forces, something like that
also: free set of steak-knives :)
the sequence of history in each page is a little… strange… by the way E-merl u just enter in manhood after that pose. Congratz lol
Ah, the fateful glow of DM fiat!
And so, it commences…
So the new female elf in the last panel: Mom, Step-Mom, or Mistress?
Her name is apparently Kur’ik so not a direct relation to the ‘Nj family.
So… morning talk show host?
Sorry E-merl….You still look kinda out of place to me next to all these veterans.
Oh Byron you sister snatcher. Found yerself a sapling, eh?
The dwarf’s fly seems to be down as well :P
I know its been said before but:
Love very awesomely the leaf-vein pattern and dappled sunlight effects everywhere. That has to be a pain to ink.
It is very good. Love the attention to detail, even during humorous panels. Makes it all the more interesting to read.
Is it my imagination… or is Bandit wearing an annoyed pout for being called ‘human’?
Especially now that she lives in the main part of Gastonia rather than her birth-home of Gnometown, I’d say she gets mistaken for a human child often.
I misread one of his lines as ‘Felch them’. Which added a whole new layer to their display.
epic userpic/comment combo
Officially Requesting GA/Avengers Mashup Fanart.
“Use their bones for…
“.. for, uhm… attachment points for their powerful muscles, and structural support of their mighty bodies, which we will not, NOT be damaging today. Or any other day.
“That’s the way team Dai Gurren roles!”
Just who the hell do you think I am?
According to your avatar, you’re the one who just rewrote history…
This is where H.R.’s spell at the purple servers kicks in; without it the heroes’ reception would have continued like this, going from bad to worse to horrible.
In the end they’d have had to take the king hostage, most likely.
Now we’re back on the tic-tac-tectonius track, banquets and all.
Is Kon’kr named for the chestnut coz he’s bonkers (ha ha! Bon’kr!), or for victory coz he likes to conquer…?
(“…Conker’s bonkers, coz he wants ta conquer;
People’s steeples, make ‘em all fall down!
Humans, hoomins! Kill ‘em to make more room in
o-ur Fo-rest Towwwwnnnn..!”)
—sung somewhat to the tune of “Jeepers, Creepers.”
I think it’s because he’s an old conker.
use their bones for your grace? Only Byron has that honour.
WHAT YOU DID THERE,
I SEE IT
Frigg is like, “Bow before our awesomeness bitches!” face.
Most supremely “COME AT ME BRO” face of them all.
Looks like E-merl might be starting to channel Right Said Fred a little bit.
I’m sorry to make you feel old…but who?
Thank you. I have a couple RSF albums, and shall henceforth imagine E-Merl singing them.
as i said E-merl is just enter the manhood
Go team ‘NJ!
One of these poses is not like the others. One of these poses just doesn’t belong.
One of these poses is trying desperately to do just that.
The first panel needs translating.
“Byron, we have to go” really means “Byron, stop hitting on my sister.”
I think it may be more that Syr didn’t want Byron to (yet) spill the beans on what it is the sisters’ have in common. *coughhumanfevercough*
Also, Syr’Nj left Fr’Nj and Scipio a chaperone. Nooooooooooo…
I was wondering if people read that as “hitting on sister.” His smile seems tense, like “oh, god, meeting the family got-to-make-a-good-impression!” His words and over large smile seem to me like he’s nervous, not like he’s trying to pick up Fyr.
