Bandit’s channeling Curly. I love it!
“Potion of fwittneff”
â€œPotion of Å¿wiftneÅ¿Å¿â€, actually. Long s on altgr+s ftw.
I Think it’s swiftness. Also, dirty needles aren’t good. Does she want to get Aids? Or Tetanus?
Its all good, probably has a backup cure disease in there.
Cure disease! It heals what ails ya. Unless it’s poison, magic, or a curse.
Which begs the question–if you use a dirty needle to inject a cure disease potion, do they cancel each other out?
Previous to the 1900′s it was common in many scripts to have elongated s’s that resembled the modern “f”.
Also prior to the 1900′s doctors didn’t wash their hands since we didn’t have knowledge of itty bitty monsters that make people sick. Sterilization is a fairly modern concept.
It’s just struck me that I never really though about how potions are applied. The syringe is pretty much the only way to get them into the bloodstream quick enough. xP
I’m now tempted, next DnD-esque game I run, to make it so every potion taken has a chance of causing a blood-born disease of some kind unless sufficient precaution is taken. These diseases can, themselves, only be cured with a potion. Which, if they don’t learn from their mistakes, causes a different disease.
I may stop before the entire party is dead of blood poisoning. >.>
They’re never going to learn untill they’re all dead. It’s not your fault that they can’t follow simple rules.
They’re just going to get a cleric who takes nothing but “cure disease” each day
And peopkie were asking why she hid her ears!
Doctors didn’t wash their hands in SOME countries. But midwives did! More because dirt was clearly icky, I think.
But see, our wood elf knows about sanitation! her hands are clean– she’s wearing GLOVES!
And I thought the humans were in fear of wood elves? Because of the killing ecological threats, and such?
Fear takes many forms. Like making fun of someone’s big ears.
The “cops” should grab her arm or something. “Hay! You cant shoot up here! Go to the clean injection site down the road!”
Potions, in D&D, are simple magical tools. The water in it can be anything, really. It could be orange juice for all that are cared by rules. It is just magic stored in liquid form.
But Syr’Nj is not a wizard, sage or witch. She is a Field Medic. It is easier to apply magical concoctions when they do not require the individual to drink it (another topic of discussion).
It is GENIUS work. I would like to study it very much, if you were to share your secrets with me, Erica.
Someone get this one a Gold Star.
Bandit’s been watching too much Three Stooges….FROM THE FUTURE.
Of course, there’s always the point her name is “Syr’Nj”…
I don’t follow.
Sounds like Syringe
What are you talking about.
This is not the word play you’re looking for…
Okay guys clearly she has a cap on that syringe but she just removed it, just like the adrenaline shot in left 4 dead 2! I love the look on the guards faces as Thief runs by, hahahaha.
I would like to note though that yes, it’s a syringe and its handy for healing an unconsious (pardon any spelling errors si vous pretty please) persojs, but I mean… Is it really needed to have an injection form of a buff? Typically you arent going to bulls strength or swiftness someone who is down… Although I think I just realised its to apply many potions at once, or the quick and convenient application of said potion… Rendering my point moot. Although, drinking a potion from a flask is quicker than someone looking for the proper artery to apply said potion to, not to mention the little alchohol swabbie thinger (oh yeah, Im totally rocking an MD) that makes it safe… Maybe she really ought to consider that… Wouldnt want anyone to die of poor precautions?
Im going to stop now, I could go back and forth on this all damn night.
Overall? Me like pointy healy knife, it looks like her ears. “Who needs a doctor when you have my machines and their scary needles?” (I may have misquoted, meh)
holy crap that was a helluva rant… Im sorry ^.^;;;
I hope no one ever looks at me like that before reaching for a syringe
the f’s you see on the potion are actually what is called a “long s” while what we use now is an abbreviated s. Long S on Wikipedia
The whole quote is: “Who needs a real doctor when you’ve got my machines and their scary needles.” You got it almost spot on Banish.
I know it’s “swiftness,” I know about the long s, I was just kidding around. sheesh people! =p
Hafta agree with DCB here, if any doctor ever gets that look on their face whilst pulling out a syringe I’m exit, stage left-ing it as fast as I can.
I know this is late, but that looks more like an epipen than a regular needle. The rules for applying an epipen are also different. Which makes sense also if it’s “swiftness” for it to be more like an adrenaline shot. Also like epipens, some shots are put into muscle mass and not veins.
Well that would make alot more sense, I hadn’t even considered that. Nifty =p
The long s is misused though; it is only used at the beginning and in the middle of a word, â€˜sâ€™ is used at the end. Thus, â€œÅ¿wiftneÅ¿sâ€ is the correct spelling.
Anyone else hear Zoidberg because of Bandit?
Bandit – If you thought that thieves couldn’t get more awesome, think again! ;) ^^
