And my avatar is highly appropriate.
I don’t see why Syr wouldn’t understand the Archmage. Like him, she knows this alliance thing is a temporary pretense at best, she must after overhearing those councilors.
Unless she naively believes she can turn the humans around (with support from the more liberal elements of humanity) in which case the sky elf is probably right to scold her.
I think she understands, but thinks that Kur’ik isn’t ready for this information.
Remember my dear Captain that we have a lot more background on what is going on here that Syr’nj.
No offence to liberalism, but in reality liberlism in politics often involves: “Talk left, cash right”
You’d be amazed how corrupt “liberals” are nowadays..
I believe Jean-Luc means “liberal” as in more progressive and amenable to change, not necessarily in the sense of political parties.
Agreed Schneidend, liberal here probably stands for the people who are not traditionalists. Those who stand by traditions are normally referred to as conservatives and those who try to change things with new ideas are commonly referred to as liberal. This is not just in the United States but all over the world. As for corruption Nielspeterdejong thats not a party thing of liberal vs. conservative that is a politician thing as lets be honest they all do it pretty much all over the world.
I’d just like to point out how silly your definitions make my government look.
Yes, that’s what I meant.
And the same goes for ‘conservatives’ naturally, preaching the wonders of the free market while holding their hand out for government cash anytime it’s available.
What a pity that the majority of politicians of all stripes are corrupt. No wonder we’re surprised (and disbelieving) when the occasional honest one shows up.
” Like him, she knows this alliance thing is a temporary pretense at best”
What do you mean ? Do you think archmage Caneghem and Syr’Nj are considering switching sides when the Savage threat will be quelled, and becoming enemies of the Humans ?
“I suspect he has a small branch.”
and shriveled berries
It works best after letting the pasta soften in a dark featureless room under a solitary ceiling light. Then get to work with the interrogation. Ask simple questions at first; a friendly introduction to uncle Tony and his delightful grip, and then bring up the heat. Sharp questions. Probe harder; repeat your questions as long as it fails to answer how you want it. Let that pasta cook in your words, and then throw it against the wall. Once everything sticks, it is done. After grilling, it should be pliable in your cold grasp. Recipe serves six. If you need to feed a mob, go after its accomplices.
“Linguini Guantanamo” – loosely translated: “We’ll loosen your tongue.”
Very shortly, I suspect, by our hovering friend at the back there.
You grill pasta the same way you grill everything else. With grit and gusto! The art of Backdoor BBQ is a long and storied profession. The sheer manliness of it forged nations, alongside Superbowl Sunday.
Or you could deep fry it first, and then grill it.
Objection! — Superbowl Sunday forged at most one nation. Even Canadians don’t seem to have much stomach for it. But your point about outdoor BBQ remains good.
I believe what Zero meant was that BBQ caused Superbowl Sunday AND forged nations, not that Superbowl Sunday helped it forge nations.
After the grilled pasta buffet, have a slice of macaroni pie.
Don’t turn around Syr! Ardaic is about to be an Ar-dick.
I don’t know how to grill pasta, but I know how to copy pasta!
Did…did I miss something? Why is the alt-text talking about grilling pasta…?
I have no idea. :|
I suspect it is a reference I simply do not recognize.
Because in the first panel he mentioned “Foodtaster Fieri”. Guy Fieri is an American cooking show host who plays up the whole “manly” food thing. And somehow manages to grill a lot of things including pasta.
That’s pretty much exactly the reception I was expecting from him…
With this blue background, i bet they are in the Castle’s Velvet Room. Sorry Syr’Nj, but i guess you gonna miss some social links in this playthrought.
Also, Ardaic is making his best Tom Selleck impersonation.
Where’s the RSS feed?
Oh hey, we didn’t include that in our site redesign. And that’s pretty important. Thanks for speaking up!
There’s a button up top now, but you can use this link, too:
So, expect assassins soon.
Woe to the assassins who go after main characters; methinks they will end up kindling under Byron’s axes.
There’s nothing more deadly than two donkeys, not out.
Food taster Fieri? Really? Fieri? Well, I guess he is pretty gnomish.
The alliteration made me do it!
Beware the Alliterati!
Meh, the Allitterati are just jealous of the Babysitteriterati.
They can’t read?
No, No, that’s the Illiterati and you dont’ really have to fear them here cuz they wouldn’t know it’s here anyways unless you read it to them…
Oooh! Phil! Could there possibly be a Gold Star page showcasing the Gold Stars given to commentators in the past? Or maybe a link page or something like it? I think they are rather hilarious and they have become one of the reasons I go through the comments just to see the wit and ensuing hilarity of said comments. I dunno something to ponder? maybe? dont call me…
I mean think of the immortality this could bring! Guilders’ trumping one another in a mad attempt to be upon the Phil Kahn “Wall of Goldiness”! To showcase ones ability in Punning or Mocking or Monning(Pucking!?)! To be able to show our grandchildren that (if we made it) we were once part of something AWESOME! I see it know: (gravelly old voice “Come heeere sonny and let Grampy show you how he once lit the Internetz with his wild and wooly wit and received the PHILKAHNGOLDSTAR of Immortality!” Danganaabit now where did they put the Google cached page?” What do you mean you never heard of Google? Who the heck are you? You aren’t Steve! Aw fer cryin out loud how do you work this Mind Link Commicative Tool for the Aged and Decrepit!?”
As entertained as I am by this, I think I’m going to stick with the system I’ve been using since we started. Thanks for your input, though, I’m glad they’re as meaningful as I wish them to be.
I’m not in this game for the stars, I’m in it for the lols :)
The last panel!
“I had no lines or face, so I shall stand here and creep.”
Maybe he’s slowly materialising? :) I was wondering where’d he hid himself on the last page.
Unfortunately, the Archmage is too set in his ways, like the sky elves we’ve met before. The sky elves were so reluctant to change and get involved in foreign concerns, and the Archmage assumes everything will work the same in Gastonia. Either he got sick of trying after the human councilors repeatedly stonewalled him, or he never really tried to begin with.
…where did the room go. O.O
I don’t think the archmage could have been more blunt given the surroundings. Gastonians as they proved with that little brat, will always side with gastonians if anything ‘happens’ to a non-gastonian. so they are not ‘safe’ there, even if she has the backing of others in the House of Houses, from those two she blatantly insulted. she’s not a queen talking to advisors. and yes, he and she should both know that right now they are ‘accepted’ against the rebellion..but the second Harky gets put down, the Gastonians are coming for thier resources. the Wood, and the sky elves magics, respectively. and thinking that she can sway them not to is a foolish idea…or that any friendships she forges will prevent it is also foolish.
Well, he’s right and he’s wrong. And she’s–well, I can’t really figure out what’s going on in her head right now. He’s right because the elves that are in Gastonia aren’t safe…but in a way they are. Although they may be in this complicated political situation and basically viewed as fuel for the war machine, rather than the usual kind of ally (which now that I type that, I realize that even the friendly sort of usual ally are still basically more fuel for a war machine, but whatever), they are still safer where they are than out alone facing off against Harky and hoping for the best. If she’s hoping for a long-term arrangement, that’s rather stupid because she’s already gotten a taste of their abilities to be jerks, and I don’t see that changing any time soon. So I think he’s wrong that she’s got these delusions of grandeur about skipping in from the forest and making everything all right because she said so; I think she’s talking like that because it’s the political thing to do and she’s got hope that things will change. I mean, if they don’t change, then all the elves are screwed and that’s nothing fun to think about. The difference between the two of them is that he’s given up on trying to make any changes for the better for his people because the politics of it all have made him jaded, and she’s actually seen how people of different races can work together in a working (battlefield) environment and hopes that such teamwork can be carried over into the civilian world. Nothing wrong with that, it’s just difficult to achieve, much less achieve it quickly.
This is at the very best an extremely short-term situation and should not be viewed as anything more than that. Frankly, I’m of the opinion that all the elves everywhere (yes, even the shit elves) need to form an alliance because those are really the only people they can count on to do anything beneficial for them. The humans (at least the Gastonian ones) have it in their heads to bring the entire world under their foot, it seems, and I don’t see it ending well for the elves after this war is over.
Also, I’m loving my new avatar more than my previous one. =)
“The humans (at least the Gastonian ones)”
MAybe just part of the Gastonian leaders. I mean, Pardo and the Miner Guy seem to be pretty good willing.
Annunziata seems to be more annoyed by the fact that Syr’Nj is a female playing in HIS courtyard.
Jarvis seems to be neutral, and Ardaic more like neutral/ally.
