I find it hilarious her first thoughts are about how she insulted Frigg and not why she’s on a tree branch. Maybe that’s where she sleeps at home, but still…
And that there’s a family of birds nesting on her rump…
The birds are all Erica and made me laugh out loud.
Sorry, I’m having trouble following your oddly prolonged mode of speech. Do you mean to say you lol’d? :P
Why is it that whenever I read what Jean-Luc posts, I hear the voice of Patric Stuart?
she is a wood elf, why WOULDN’T she sleep on a tree?
Lol – why “wood-ent” she sleep on a tree…. XD
Lol- Why “Wood-ent” she sleep on a tree. XD
I’m surprised she remembers that moment.
So Wood Elf blood/sap is similarly red. Interesting. Are they, perhaps, descended from dragons?
Who’s praying? It’s hard to tell.
i find it pretty interesting that frigg got her ass beat by a bunch of nuns… rulers and all…
Dude where do you think she LEARNED HER SKITTLEZ
Not really. They’re quite tough for nuns. Also it’s a toss-up whether Frigg was trained by them for any length of time or not. Her age isn’t clear in the graffiti comic.
Syr’nj is branching out.
And Frigg is washed up. Srsly, can she not put up a fight because she got drunk earlier? I expected Frigg to hand them their own butts.
Have you ever had ether sprayed in your eyes while drunk and then been kicked in the face a lot?
Only the once….I think.
Do pepper spray and/or cheap vodka count?
That’s worse, so long as you were kicked in the face.
Those nuns later went on to establish the LAPD.
bad elf bad elf… watcha gonna do… watcha gonna do when they come for you… bad elf
Oh god… I’m so sorry I just could NOT resist!!
That last name sounds awfully nordic to me! I like it (I’m from Sweden!). Now the question is, and I don’t think this is 100% clear in the comic- does Syrnj know that Frigg is in trouble having seen the nuns in a dream of sort, or is she just waking up, remembering last night and being sorry for calling her a Knothole?
And for those that didn’t notice earlier: the name Frigg is also about as Scandinavian as it gets, seeing as she’s a Norse goddess (the wife of Odin, in fact).
it’s also a synonym for a swearword :)
She’s freaked out by the idea that she insulted a friend
She’s actually freaked out because she knows that using the word “knothole” actually invokes ancient wood elf curses.
and i understand about Ether being some kinda chemical that does something negative to your body…but I wikipediad it and its such a broad term….can someone help us out?
You know in movies about kidnapping, how they put a white rag over the victim’s face… they drench said rag in the stuff. Puts you out pretty fast.
Also was used as an anesthetic before safer chemicals were found. There was a chance of not waking up if they used too much ether….
But these may be mis-remembered facts.
ether’s a chemical group that can be a part of amny different molecules – while the rest of the molecule might determine some of it’s properties, all ethers will share some properties as well (one of which is being quite reactive, I believe.)
In a fantasy setting, Ether can well be the fifth element as well, after water, and a bad rock band.
The fantasy element would be Aether, not ether.
Once upon a time candy was dandy and liquer was quicker, but ether will fuck her up! Ether (in real life) will render you unable to control your body very well. Its like being drunk but only your body is drunk not your mind so much. The amounts poured on frigg would kill any ordinary human outright in real life, but it could be as Ahdok said, a fifth element type thingy in fantasy land. Like Mana is in Warcrack.
ether will knock you out. before the advent of modern anesthesia, surgeons would use ether-soaked rags or sponges to knock patients out. So getting doused with a few gallons of the stuff should be enough to at least slow Frigg down. And those nuns are one of the most violent orders I’ve seen. Go back and look at Frigg’s origin story page.
Of course the draw back to useing it in surgery was the difficulty in gauging a proper dose lethal in many cases. We had a jar break in a lab setting once, lab went to lockdown (sealed airtight until safetied by an outside observer), about 6 onces knocked out 5 people, but killed 3 monkeys and a butt load of mice. Dangerous stuff, but just awsome fun to set on fire makes a really cool tweet sound like hydrogen gas. :D
In this case ether is probably referring to Diethyl ether: A common low boiling solvent (b.p. 34.6Â°C), and an early anaesthetic. (C2H5)O(C2H5)
This substance revolutionised medicine (esp surgery) in the mid 1800s similar to chloroform.
So that would boil pretty fast off of Frigg when she’s angry, ensuring a thick plume of gas.
Still not sure this is necessarily a bad thing for Frigg though, unwanted is a given for sure.
Sorry Miss Akerfeldt, sludge happens.
The badassery of those nuns has pretty much been established so one shouldn’t wonder much at their pious kickassery.
Or should I say facekickery.
And so Syr goes looking for Frigg to apologize…
And finds what?
‘Statistics tell us that 90% of Nuns who beat their acolytes still profess love for them. 20% claim it was the acolytes that “made” them commit these violent acts. In nearly 65% of all cases, the Nuns will deny any wrongdoing in the beginning, claiming the injury was a result of running into a doorknob. If you are a victim, perpetrator or know of a similar case, please call our tariff free hotline: 1800-FALSEXORCISM. Aggressors Anunymous: “We’re here to actually help.” ‘
Now I have to wonder if they picked a Nordic name at random, or if one of the authors is a closet Opeth fan…
Aaaaaaaand my predictions have come true. Now how about that?
I suspect now is time for Frigg to come face to face with Priestlord Gigundus, and he’s going to be tiny-helmet man.
Is she related to the only real member of the band known as Opeth?
Or am I creating connections where there are none?
Fuck, just looked up two comments and realised I am not such a genius.
Is there a joke in Frigg’s name?
Is waking up on a strange limb the elven equivalent of waking up next to a strange person after a night of drinking?
Sista said knock you out!
With the last four panels, I cannot help thinking of something that happened to my character in a game of D&D. She also woke up in a tree with no idea of how she got there. However, she had not been drinking. She just… lost a few days… and got a lot of strange looks when she tried to explain this to people… especially when she mentioned that her tent (and horse, IN the tent) nearly fell on her.
Still… there was no alcohol involved, no matter what the random NPCs thought.
… you probably had to be there.
Awww Syrâ€™nj =) She cares about people’s feelings. Ironic that she’s worrying about Frigg, who has no feelings.
Oh, that’s not true. In fact, I’d say she’s concentrated emotion. ;) And besides, anger is a feeling.
I really like the bird’s nest. So funny. ^^
Frigg has… Urges.
I like many others wonder about Friggs name Ã…kerfeldt? did you just pick it randomly or was there some pun intended?
In translation Ã…kerfeldt would be something like “Fieldplower”. There’s also an Egyptian god Aker whose name translates into “he who bends or just bender”. :P
“Farmland” would be a better translation…
Does he happen to resemble a coffee thermos with a drinking habit? Just askin,
Thermos would be an awesome name for a fantasy-setting god.
Everyone going on about the chemical Ether… has it occured to you that in fantasy settings, the ether is also a term for that ethereal stuff that sometimes gets used in magic?
I have no doubt at all that these nuns have mastered the use of an ether blast of some sort.
That said, I’m very surprised that even a drunk Frigg hasn’t put a serious bit of pain on more than one. Even if she loses, they should remember for a long time that they were in a fight.
knowing how much the creators of this comic hate normal letters, they’d have spelt that Ã¦ther. :)
I’d like to thank you both for copying my post without any additional commentary of any kind.
Now can I ask why?
Note the websites they have linked in their names.
A bot comes along, grabs a random post to assure “relevance,” and copies it with the address to which it wants to spam links.
“Frigg Åkerfeldt”? Huh, i didn’t expect to find a swedish (well, semi-swedish.. or something) name in this comic! :D
Also i like that Syr’nj is basicly like me when i wake up, always the little things i think of before i start to think of the big things. Real life example:
I noticed that my glass of water was empty BEFORE i noticed that a ram (the male sheep kind of ram) was standing right next to my bed bleating at the top of his lungs! :D True story! ^^
(I live at a farm and the ram had escaped from the pen and went in through the open front door which is close to my room, trust me i always close my bedroom door from now on! ^^)
so… how ezzactly do you explain frigg getting pwned by nuns when A. shes aredy beaten them and B. she took on a whole slew of pirates pretty much by herself and won?
