Um, I foresee very bad things happening to very dull people.
I hope the floor is made of marble, so they can hose the blood off…
Oh, and I love the way Bandit is looking up at Syr’nj, just waiting for her cue…
I sense a great disturbance in the force. As if a million voices cried out, and were suddenly hit with a mace.
Hush, you’ll interrupt her palping.
Good point. Nothing’s worse than a ruined palp.
Her palping may become pulping in very short order!
Hush, i really want to hear the “CRUNCH!” of a skull getting smashed that i hope is coming up! :D
Somehow methinks Representative Frigg might make a bit more enthusiastic use than normal of the ceremonial gavel. On some heads. And a table or two.
A room full of breakable things and people, meet counselor Frigg and her Gavel of Happiness +2. Every time she smacks someone with it who really needs to shut the hell up, she becomes happier. Hopefully she eventually achieves “blissful nirvana’ and keels over asleep…as opposed to ‘homicidal glee’, at which point they’ll need a lot of water to hose down the marble afterwards.
There aren’t actually that many breakable items. It helps get the strip out on time.
You could draw random objects on scraps of paper whenever you have a minute while you’re doing something else, then just drop the same objects into the backgrounds over and over on a separate RANDOM OBJECTS layer and see how long it takes people to notice.
Erica is way, WAY too good to use the same designs for Sky Elf environment as for Gastonian high command or a bar. I can’t see that working.
Besides, when it’s Frigg, the definition of “breakable” changes.
Can we break it? Yes, we CAN!!
This is about to get eight kinds of awesome.
I think the question “attack US? HOW?” is about to be answered!
BTW, I still get the “Internal Server Error” whenever I post. Everytime. I run IE7 in Windows XP (lousy choices, I know, but it ain’t my machine)…
This issue should hopefully be resolved soon when we switch servers.
That’s okay Carl-E. I get exactly the same error when I post, and I’m running OSX 10.5.1 and firefox.
It’s not you :)
They’re not laughing with him, they’re laughing at his silly nose, which he’s pointing at.
Oh! Switching servers! Fun! I get the error, too, but when I go back, my comment is there, so good enough for me. The female sky elf speaking in panel one is so very pretty.
You can name her Clair if you like.
As long as it’s not Barbara, even though Frigg is probably about to be coming to get her.
( 10 Geek points for anyone who gets that reference WITHOUT having to use a search engine.)
“They’re coming to get you barbara…”
you gained 10 geek points in my book just for making me think of it.
Well I suppose we can rest assured, whatever Frigg has to say will be short, sweet, and to the heavy blunt object.
My first thought was “Oh. no.”
This is going to be awesome.
Oh yes, this is going to be awesome.
I like Frigg! She’s my kind of gal!
He’s sort of right, though (albeit not for the right reasons). Steam-powered coal fuel engines are unlikely to generate the power-to-weight realistically required to achieve flight, especially without all the other composite materials that require much more advanced technology to make.
Perhaps magic can fuel the gap – can a human conjuring fire heat a boiler long enough to power flight? – but who knows about magic?
But as far as war goes, their opponents don’t need to fly; they just need a way to lob heavy objects in their general direction fast enough, whilst being mobile enough to keep a safe distance. Sufficiently powerful artillery will suffice. If humans have explosives, as they apparently already do, a hail of rockets like these will likely dent their target.
While the humans might not make flying machines, and you’re correct about the likelihood of their making artillery sufficient to make the elves very unhappy, I think the magic angle is also a very likely avenue for the humans to use, should retributive action be needed. And combat wouldn’t even be necessary to kill the flying city.
All the humans really need is to research intensively on the methods to block the elves’ conjurations. Voila, thefts are stopped – and if the elves continue with their present attitude, they will starve hundreds of their own people before attempting to open trade with the “worthless ” nations. And if things progressed in that manner, those nations on the ground from whom the elves were stealing would probably be unwilling to aid the elves.
But I think Frigg may get things going in a more constructive direction…or a more directly destructive one.
Either way, we the readers win!
A helium-filled dirigible with a coal-fired steam engine will work perfectly fine as a flying machine.
For some reason, Syr passing the proceedings to Frigg made me think of that scene in Payback whence the hooker is asking Porter what he would do if his interrogators “asked him hard”.
5 bucks says she’s snoring.
Ugh. Pompous arseholes, just like every other elf. Especially Best.
Frigg! She may look rough but she’s (apparently) very good at diplomacy as well!
Oh come on, mister Magick guy, we all know that “Food is the first of the five Principal Exceptions to Gamp’s Law of Elemental Transfiguration”
