Important announcement today!
“Ka-PEACE!” made me :-D.
Cutest Syrâ€™Nj EVER!
Not just that…
Cutest thing EVAR!
*peeks* Did the Wotch turn up somewhere around here? I thought I heard someone getting ka-girled.
HHMM wonder where Bandit made off to???
She’s in here. Seriously.
It’s like “Where’s Waldo”, without the identifying outfit.
Yep! that was the idea!
It’s actually for “Lightning Made of Owls” – but since I was drawing 172 characters, I figured I’d include Bandit in there.
She’s probably still right where she was sitting, in that blank spot, just stealthed. The group must have failed their spot check. I know I did.
She’s under the Ka-PEACE!
In panel 2 here:
She’s sitting rightin front of the plank. In this update the plank is plainly visible.
Bandit isn’t sitting there anymore – she was next to bald-n-sideburns in that panel, and now there’s a space where she was… is this where she joins the party?
OK, so now we know why the Fab Three were hob-nobbing with the Sky-Elves….
As for demonstrations of strength, you are talking to a Dwarf ( all those hours at a forge finally count for something!) and a slut who walks around in her daily life wearing full Plate Armor. I think we got that covered.
On a sidenote…Ka-twitch? Is this because Frigg suddenly has a paying J.O.B., or did she recognize the Preistlord’s name? Considering how medieval Preistlords used to act, I see some interesting back-story potential.
Gigundus was the priestlord who her former sisterhood followed… so yeah, she’s probably a little worried about the big man recognizing her name from the ‘renegade’ list or some such, and smiting her.
That, or she’s just back under his thumb. Probably a reason she ran like hell from that cloistered life, ya know?
I thought it was because she was bored and that convent turned out to be much more flammable than expected. Seriously, who knew? The thing was made out of rocks.
I’ve been re-looking this over…The continuing look of shock in Frigg-em-all’s face in panel two, and the interesting grim smile in panel 4 lead me to believe that Frigg has a history here….
That’s not a grim smile in panel 4, it’s just grim…
She is a crusader, meaning religious background. And wasn’t she raised (in part) in a nunnery? She probably does indeed know who this Priestlord Gigundus is.
Follow-up post: She did. This act of self-correction has led to me re-reading the entire archive. NOTE – this is recommended reading
You guys are waaay far off, it’s not at all as deep as all that…
Quite simply, Frigg =/= peacekeeper
Peace = No Fighting
No they’re right, the twitch is timed on the words Priestlord Gigundus, and he was so the priestlord of the covenant Frigg ran away from.
Agree with ahdok. Besides, peacemaking often enough involves murder. What’s more peaceful than a pile of dead foes? Hells, even think about the old Colt Peacemaker. Granted, not the official name, but folks called it that for a reason.
Everyone’s talking about their grand plans and aspirations, while Byron’s off to the side thinking..”I have money! I can buy ale! Mmmmm…..ale…..one in EACH hand!!”
Well, at least we now know who the tiny-headed guy speaking Cyrillic was. I should think the reason for Frigg’s reaction is at least somewhat obvious. My bet, though, is that he turns out to be her father. Or a relative of some sort.
Also, Syr’s face in panel 2 made me laugh.
Also also, Byron is happy to finally have a steady cashflow.
Also also also, I now realize that Byron’s blade-y pauldron’s are modeled after tiny-head’s.
Also also also also, ka-*STFU’d*
Gravedust’s too cool to get in on the “ka-*” bandwagon.
I guess it’s also time for Bandit to get de-pu-tiiiized.
Why did I get a bad feeling about their so-called peace initiative?
Oh, I think you know why …
Oo-Rah! Syr’nj gets paid in peace!
“Ka-Peace” is by far the best onomatopoeia I’ve ever seen.
isn’t it an unsound effect?
Unonomatopoeia. say that even once, i dare you.
Although I think all three “ka” effects could be said to be onomatopoetic, because if this were an animated dealie, there’d be sound effects for each of those.
I imagine Frigg’s “ka-twitch” would be a sharp intake of breath (gasp of horror, hiss of breath between the teeth like an audible wince, pick your choice).
Byron’s would obviously have the cash register sound effect.
And Syr’s would be either some kind of happy noise (a hum perhaps, a glad sounding sigh maybe?); or if they just wanted to go over the top, “All You Need Is Love” would start playing.
…I think about this too much. I came back here in the middle of the weekend to re-read comments and post more…
You’d never catch me doing that!
ahdok, I like you! you’re as silly as I am :D
I love how her “Ka-Peace” has flowers and pink and happiness! I also love that smile!!
Best Syr’nj expression to date.
Ah! Now it all makes sense.
I would seriously enjoy making Ka-Peace my icon…. if I knew how to frickin use this thingie.
alta lemur, I made a Gravatar account just so I could see what all was involved and clipped a Syr’nj avatar for you… erm, might want to check with the comic creators that it’s ok to use it. Anyways, go to this link: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v133/BowenTheKotoc/unalteredSyrnjicon.jpg Right-click the picture, save as a file on your computer. Go through the Gravatar sign up process and it’ll give you the option to upload a file directly from the computer to use as your avatar. Not sure if it’ll let you use alta lemur as a username on Gravatar, though… it says no punctuation marks, I’m assuming that includes spaces, dunno. Anywho, hope that helps.
Nice turn of events.
Frigg shouldn’t be so down about the ‘peace’ keeping, I’ve done most of my peace keeping in Battletech via Gauss Rifle to the face.
that’s piece keeping.
I did keep peices
Anything to the face pretty much ensures peace, in pieces. And bits. And also dribbly stuff on your armor…
Justice. It’s messy.
peace piece, tomato tomatoe… semantics are directly proportional to which end you’re on lol
That wasn’t semantics, that was a pun :D
As a recovering catholic and former catholic school girl ( yes, I had to wear the uniform), I know exactly that ka-twitch frigg does at the sound of Gigundus. I still twitch when I hear sister Christine Ann’s name mentioned. Yay for the mitant orders of religous institutions! They turn out very dedicated, bloodthirsty fighters :D
Militant orders…. ~grumble~ stupid fat fingers hitting the wrong keys….
Fat fingers? So YOUR responsible for that stock crash a while ago! :p
And yeah, it’s pretty clear that Frigg is reacting to Gigundus, makes me wonder if that will make her more or less inclined to be involved.
I actually read “militant” and was wondering what were you grumbling at. That’s language redundancy for ya…
Me too. I didn’t see the typo until you pointed it out.
Then again, I also live with people who “spaek typonese” as we say. I have learned much about reading between the characters.
I still like the Ka-Ching face, ha Byron ever the business man
First Panel: Is it just me, or does that look like what Frigg’s ‘Bedroom Aerobics’ face could look like…?
Hey… OI, I can’t help it if I like chicks who can swear like troopers, carry around an M1 turret glacis for a shield and has God’s Holy Whack-Bonk to use as a meat tenderiser… SO STOP LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT!!! ;p
