The “Boy Pirate” doesn’t really look like he’s screaming. Maybe.
For his grand finale, Best lands the mothership. George Clinton would be proud.
So Payet did know what he was doing. I feel better now that he has confirmed that he is a douchebag, and not simply evil.
Too bad his strings were broken. If he’d landed back down on deck and busted out some riffs from “Stairway to Heaven” then I think his scene would’ve been complete!
Well, I didn’t think we were going to see dismembered children as some expected.
Ahh children … onehundred and one uses. But the production cost for an anchor rope/chain is way cheaper than for so many children …
The people safely on the boat seem to be having more bladder control issues than the children falling out of the sky on a chain.
Gotta hand it to the kids. They all rolled 20′s on their Permanently Scarring Fear checks.
So is that one of those rolls where success means your mind FAILS to process what’s just occurred rather than the other way around?
Probably. Like flipping up the skirt of the Mother of Demons.
Had a guy in a game decide to disbelieve something that wasn’t actually an illusion. He failed the check and then, on his own volition, proceeded to roleplay it properly.
He disbelieved reality, so he made up his own as the party went along.
Second panel. I like Syr’nj’s frowny face in the background.
I didn’t even see that the first time around! That’s great!!
Haha, that’s great
That squirrel’s going to be dining out on this story for years.
Maybe it’s one of those man-eating squirrels *insert sinister evil laugh here*
Okay who asked if there was any wandering Ents in the area?
That squirrel just looked at those kids shook its head and said,”There’s goes the neighbourhood!”
See? It worked!
This is what I’ll do in real life. Anchor and rope optional.
Without the anchor and rope, the thing goes flying about like … a punctured balloon.
And that’s how I’ll sabotage a flying pirate ship should I ever find myself on one.
Thats… Brilliant! Why didnt Gravedust try that before hopping on board?
Probably only had those two arrows… :(
When your packing two magical possessed arrows that can automatically track into people’s eyes and heart, having them cut the rope and circle back around to your quiver is small time.
Wait wait wait wait….did Best just SPARE the kids potential life-threatening risk by tossing them off the ship before the anchoring tree forced it to…well, not crash, but float into the ground?
…I agree with previous commenters, I can’t decide if his competence makes him more or less annoying.
OK, so Worst isn’t a complete idiot.
Best is the most problematic thing of all… a complete egomanical dick with a ridiculous attitude (who the audience lives to hate) that actually has the skills and force of will to back up some of his own self-propelled hot air, making him cool and badass in a way that makes the audience just a tad uncomfortable and conflicted.
I love it.
Haha, spot on! :)
That’s actually a pretty good point. In most stories, the boastful braggart is the character that’s being set up to fall flat on their face when they actually have to back up their talk. Pride goeth before a fall and all that. It’s interesting to read a story where the annoying pompous one may actually be as talented as he claims to be.
I can honestly say I doubt anyone really expected Best to be anything other than all talk and no action, but he seems to be a pretty good fighter and quick to improvise.
He’s like Russell Brand, except with talent!
Okay, that’s not a very good analogy. Jude Law maybe, but more of a dick?
Payet Best is exactly what he’s supposed to be. A great hero with a strong arm and keen mind. He’s used to being the center of attention, so having an ego makes sense. His last name is friggin’ BEST. Look at all the examples of actors and athletes that have great skills but noisome personalities. I think of Best in that mold.
Though sometimes i’d prefer to think of him covered in mold. Brown mold. Taking cold damage every round. Until frozen.
Squirrel: These humans are NUTS!
I hate to be the one to mention this, but Payet has a left hand on his right hand in panel two…
Ok, I’m at a loss. From a practical standpoint, how does chaining a bunch of kids to your anchor help, again?
