Frigg, I love you. Marry me! (In case, y’know, you swing that way *w*)
Didn’t you read the last comic. She swings low and free, man.
Hmm, I think I see a reason for her to return to the main group appearing here… the question is still how.
Plot device, most likely. Could be a plot hole, but those don’t seem to be part of this series’ comic physics.
I… don’t see how this could be considered a plot hole. Like, at all.
Due to several years of “Lost”, people are more likely to assume that a yet unanswered question is going to lead to a plot hole rather than an actual answer.
But… this is a story about the formation of a group of adventurers which clearly includes Frigg in the future.
For an author to write those future stories, and then write a story in the past where Frigg leaves and never comes back… that would literally require some form of mental disability on the author’s part.
or some amazing fake-outs.
Weren’t you just arguing against it being a plot hole?
Now THAT’s a plot hole.
He’s arguing against the previously unmentioned idea that the writers of this rag are mentally disabled.
Which… I gotta tell ya… Not a safe bet.
That has to sting…
Don’t be such a wimple.
I don’t think many folks got the pun, but it certainly gave me a back-handing. :D
Whew, I was afraid Frigg would leave the party, but as mindsword said, this is a good reason for her to go back!
Swearing in front of nuns is indeed a bad habit. But swearing in front of priests gets you collared every time. ‘Tis a quandry, that.
Nun Puns!! nunnnnn punnnnnns!!!!!!!!!
I can’t help but think of this song…
â€œNo one suspects the Spanish Inquisition!â€
The way Frigg’s arm is bent as she punches that Sister right in the ol’ rosaries reminds me of this.
Yeahhhhh somebody just broke their hand.
I’m not sure if you were trying to make a pun or not on the fact that a nun’s uniform is called a habit.
Given the comic’s track record for having witty Alt-text commentary, I think it’s safe to assume that they were indeed attempting the pun.
Called it! Calleditcalleditcalleditcalleditcalleditcalleditcalleditcalleditcalledit for the last few comics.
Also, lolether. Most people wouldn’t get that joke. I do. So I know that no matter how much Frigg tries to fight, she’s not getting away.
Actually, with her likely absurd fort save, she could. loldice
Also, ether has an EXTREMELY high evaporation rate in open air. If she can avoid breathing in too many of the fumes as it does so, it should dissipate pretty quickly.
Post the 3,333rd comment!
I always hate the achievements that require you to play for a long time, but essentially require no other skill than patience.
Can we have achievements for more esoteric contributions? like “Mentioned the Franco-Prussian War in a comment.” “Drew a piece of fanart” or “Introduced a friend to the comic.”
“Ayo, could you spare some points?”
Look, you got it all wrong… it’s supposed to be baptism by fire
Here. Let me show you.
Ether and flames don’t mix…..
I’d personally say they mix incredibly well. Too well, really. That’s kind of the problem. =D
Bitchual may now be one of new words to use randomly in a sentence.
Is our paladin finally going get anointed?
she’s a crusader not a paladin! Sheesh!
Now this would be the perfect intro for Bandit with her witnessing this scene and fecthing help namely them!
Now how would she persuade them to believe her though?
Fetching help not fecthing!
Oh Frigg, how could you ever have forgotten to set the NUNS on fire before you left. That sort of oversight always comes back to haunt you. With ambush religious rituals. Always.
Omg, his stomach *crack*ed. :o
Wait a min, “her” stomach?
It’s a nun, so I guess it’s a woman.
Heheheeee. Bad “habit”.
Nobody leaves our lady of the perpetual bloodshot eyeball http://guildedage.net/webcomic/chapter-1/chapter-1-page-5/ (look at the symbol on the nun’s outfit in the last panel of today’s comic.)
Just when you think they’re out, they draw you back in!
Wish I had an edit option… That was supposed to be “Just when you think you’re out, they pull you back in”
Not an important difference, except that it’s a quote.
Holy water squirtguns! XD
Those dumbasses just waded into a shitstorm.
Other rituals include Confirmation by Morningstar, Sulphur Communion and Flaming Last Rites.
I was gonna say Marriage to an Iron Maiden, but then I realised, oh wait, that’s Frigg!
She’s no maiden.
That’s not proof! that’s just circumstantial!
What’s ether, then? Even if she kicked ass in this panel, I’m not so sure about the next! Hopefully she kicks their asses, or- if she doesnt- lets hope the others come and save her! Wooh!
Ether is an extremely flammable analgesic. Even if she does make a fortitude save against the ether (which would be kinda like making a fortitude save against getting run over by a truck) they can just toss a torch at her and let her burn. Even if she does make a save, though, it should still lower her strength and dex, and she should have to make a save with every breath she takes, sooo….eventually she is going down. Well played, sister, well played.
Come to think of it…Frigg is doomed. Her best bet is to stay calm and slow her breathing. The more excited she gets the faster she breathes, the higher her dose of ether.
this is a setting where magic exists, the laws of physics don’t apply, so the laws of biology probably don’t either – why assume they’re the same? :)
Just because there’s magic doesn’t mean basic rules of physics, biology, etc. don’t apply. I have yet to see a fantasy world where there’s no gravity or where people don’t generally die when stabbed for example.
Because of their reputation I think they’re probably wearing armor, not to mention the bad ass gauntlet the nun who is talking has. I think someone mentioned Frigg probably broke her hand and I agree, because punching someone in the stomach doesn’t make that sound.
Unless she broke that nun’s ribs…that does make a crack sound…
Frigg is so awesome…XD
Or if that’s the sound of armor being bent, dented, or broken.
The fastenings of armor can make quite an alarming sound when broken under great stress!
We can’t see much of the “victim” nun’s face, but what I can make out, she doesn’t look like she’s in pain. She looks as pissed off as Frigg.
And if these are the women that *trained* Frigg…how badass are THEY?
No. That’s clearly surprise. When you’re angry your eyes narrow. When you’re surprised, your eyes widen.
Didn’t Frigg beat up the lot of them, burn down their temple and run off cackling?
That was one versus an entire convent – this is Frigg (And Bandit too!) versus somewhere between six and twenty of them.
Been reading a while, decided to start posting. First off love the comic.
>.> and the free in the breeze makes sense if you think crazy nuns are chasing you.
