I am seriously loving Frigg’s expresion in that last panel :D
I’m a bit partial to Dusty’s, myself.
I liked Gravies better…
Elves and Mead…just seem to go together.
Sweeeeeeet. (After all, mead is made from honey.)
Syrâ€™Nj is easily my favorite, so far.
Haha I agree, Syr’Nj is definitely my favorite character.
And here I was worried she had the second least in personality, after Gravedust.
Now both characters have drive, personality, and quirks. this makes simon HAPPY
I’m inclined to agree with you.
Byron seems quite pleased with himself.
A good leader knows how to raise morale and ease tension.
“Whats a Irish Car Bomb?”
Oh man… I’m going to kill my cousins. They used Bailey’s in that concoction. I couldn’t chug it fast enough; the foam seized up.
No, an Irish Car bomb is a shot that is half whiskey and half Bailey’s, dropped into Guinness.
If you leave out the Bailey’s, it’s just a Boilermaker.
YES thank you, too many pubs in my area will leave out either the Bailey’s or the whiskey. Although for me it has to be Jameson. My favorite drink to end the night with, the would be chocolate cake to the alchohol meal.
I did not see that last frame/reference coming. Brought a smile to my face.
Disney’s Pocahontas music video thingie.
It’s cute :3
So what does Syr’Nj do, pour it on her feet? I mean roots?
Syrâ€™Nj just keeps getting more and more adorable
Just so long as the drink doesn’t make her go all Mafia on us. It’d be like going from “We’re the diplomats from Gastonia, Ka-Peace!” to “Nows we don’t wantsh any troubble here, Kapish?”
Ummm… why does the Major’s office have a sign that says, “TAILOR” hanging out front?
Is it a front?
And really, who doesn’t like mead?
The only way to get into the secret meeting room is to go to the tailor and tell him you’re there to see your uncle.
…Doesn’t work if you go back fifteen years later, though.
it might explain why Syr’nj has changed her clothes.
It seems she is wearing chain. I’m not sure, but a Tailor isn’t the first person I think’d be making and selling chain.
I just assumed they’d all gone to the Tailor for some new clothes, as befitting their new..uh..well to get new clothes anyway.
I was going to say they’re respectable, but Frigg hasn’t had a complete personality shift :P
(edit) Byron at least is wearing different clothes: that’s a newer, cleaner, and more attractive shirt/tunic he has on…
Syr looks like she changed clothes too, before the last panel. That, or she’s losing layers of clothing as she gets drunker.
I love the look on Gravedust’s face, it’s so funny! Also what my hubby looks like when *I* start singing in public…!
Frigg Pleased. Mommy Like.
Oh god. Just as long as she doesn’t find some ridiculous raccoon companion.
Those things can really fuck you up.
And they tend to be rabid.
I should know.
When I come back from a mighty quest
I have no need for sleep or rest
I head to a tavern for a drink
And get so drunk I cannot think
A wench by my side and a jug of mead
These are the things that I most need
So I sit back and sing this song
And drink and party all night long!
alestorm for the win :D
Trip to Gastonia : 50 ralds
4 tankards of mead : 20 ralds
the pleasure to see Syr’nj completely pie-eyed : Priceless. ^^
Certain things can’t be bought.
For all the others, there’s Gastonia Master-Card.
Accepted wherever you need it.
She won’t be very happy in the morning. Mead causes the worst hangovers in this world, and probably also the one these characters live in :P.
I only get hangovers from red wine. Mead is wonderful.
That’s really a sensitivity to the sulphur compounds found in red wine, and not a proper hangover. I’ve never had a hangover myself, knowing the two biggest preventatives: drinking water before going to bed and not drinking way too much alchohol the night before.
The preservative sulfates put in commercially-produced red wine, actually. Home-made wine lacks them, as do I would expect any wines made by civilizations such as those in the story.
I get hangovers from home-made red wine too.
Oh god. I actually, perhaps for the first time ever, LOL’d. A legitimate LOL.
She is actually singing honest-to-god Pocahontas. YESSSsss.
so long as she doesn’t develop a Need for Mead.
I…see. So that’s what fermented honey does to Wood Elves.
Why is it all the best nights start with the words “Whats Mead?”
I like the night time lighting. Nice way of showing the not-quite darkness in a suburban area
Mead…it’s a good thing.
Mead: It’s what’s for dinner.
I love mead.
Here in Indiana we have our own Meadery, called Camelot Wines. They make a Strawberry Mead that tastes like fresh picked strawberries. Freaking awesome.
Is it safe to assume that someone saw Robin Hood?
Frigg is quite the philosophical conversationalist.
e…eeeeeeieiieiiiiiiiIIIIIIIIIIImmanuel Kant was a real pissant
Who was very rarely stable
Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy beggar
Who could think you under the table
David Hume could out consume
Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel!
And Wittgenstein was a beery swine
who was just as sloshed as Schlegel!
There’s nothing Nietzsche couldn’t teach ya
’bout the raising of the wrist.
Socrates himself was
One of the best strips imho. I just about fell out of the chair w/laughter on that last panel.
For every person, there is a drink waiting to be discovered.
Oh boy, just realized I haven’t checked the mouse-over text yet (:
The colors in the first 3 panels are really too dark, imho. They make the characters’ expressions hard to get, and don’t do justice to Erica’s excellent line work! :-/
I don’t know. I think it is all good. Erica was drawing people in the dark and I think she did a more than excellent job or depicting it and keeping the lighting. They can’t see every last detail in the dark. Why would we?
I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love the last panel. I mean, I could go on about every last one of their expressions, but in the end… the most profound thing I think I can say for this is:
1) Great comic, one more good thing to look forward to;
2) Great characters, love them all (yeah, even Best)
3) Yay mead
4) I bet Syrn’j can carry a nice tune… even if the lyrics are a bit slurred
…wait a minute… she’s a wood elf… with actual ROOTS!
…and she’s complaining about beer tasting like mud?
You know what’s great? I was seriously listening to Colors of the Wind when I read this page.
That last line had me looking up Disney songs for over an hour.
I miss my childhood :/
…somehow my brain immediately concluded that Frigg was wondering if she should hit on Syr’nj. She probably checked out while the Wood Elf was protesting that she’s female, and she evidently likes guys with pointy ears.
