A properly trained Corpsman is a badass indeed. Not only do they fix the guys that get hit, they are combat trained as well, because sometimes they have to fight their way to a patient.
Can I join the G.L.S? Sound like my kinda guys.
Our favorite foulmouthed paladin suddenly has Respect for the wood-elf? Will wonders never cease.
Seriously… I hope to see more of that. Being a medic takes SERIOUS guts. And the really good ones, don’t talk about it much. But tales from her service, used sparingly, could be invaluable for bonding with the others.
I wonder why she quit the squad…
you….think Frigg’s a paladin?
She WAS raised in a church…
And left it. IN FLAMES. Yeah, she’s as much a paladin as I am a flying penguin.
maybe a crusader?
Looked like Frigg was starting to like the Girl… well, untill the part about ‘not fighting’ anyway.
Frigg as a paladin? I guess she could be a paladin of the Most Righteous Order of Badass, Yo. Somehow I get the impression that she’s been excommunicated from the sight of Our Lady of the Perpetual Bloodshot Eyeball.
I can’t really see Frigg being a paladin. A warrior-nun, maybe, but not a paladin. XD
Nuns do not complain about being boxblocked. Or intentionally burn down convents. Or raise funds by streetfighting random passing warriors and (presumably) rifling through their pockets for loose change. I’m pretty sure they don’t fight pirates either, but I really hope they do so we can make a tv show out of it.
Most nuns don’t murder entire families to prevent the spread of unicorn flu. So I think it’s safe to assume that nuns of Our Lady of the Perpetual Bloodshot Eyeball don’t follow the same rules as Catholic nuns.
I’m pretty sure that was a pile of unicorn corpses. In chapter 1. Or maybe a bunch of skinned ponies with horns glued to their heads. Either way, clearly equine corpses.
Check out the skull a little to the right of the middle of the last panel, though. The teeth, eye sockets, and nose are a lot more sapien. And the corpse in the bottom left corner of the same panel looks like it might be wearing tattered clothes. I think that the unicorn flu turns people into unicorns, so their corpses would look significantly equine.
I’ll agree that skull seems off, but I’m pretty sure that’s just skin on that one corpse. It fits late stage decomposition pretty well, where the skin has split after stretching, and dried out a little. It’s right about now when we could use Phil to clarify things, or more likely say something like “Will you guys please stop analyzing that one panel with the dead unicorns in it you’re creeping me out”.
I can’t believe you guys are so preoccupied with this in the face of the looming Bicorn threat.
also nuns dont shag Peayet Best
don’t be silly – the evidence strongly indicates that everybody (and I mean everybody) shags Payet Best.
And he has a reputation to uphold.
Actually, I seem to remember reading somewhere here that Frigg is a Crusader. As in a fighter/warrior in the employ of or dedicated to a religious order. They don’t normally have access to magic abilities, but they also don’t have the strict requirements that paladins have. Crusaders are the ones you send in when you just need to smash something with a hammer instead of cutting it out with a scalpel (paladins) or healing it with magic (clerics).
Frigg’s a crusader.
It says so on the cast page.
It fits if you were going to stat them out, too. Crusaders have a damage sink, they like to break things and they can get teamwork bonuses. What’s more, their maneuvers are random.
GASTONIAN LEISURE SQUAD, FORM UUUUUUP!!
MAN YOUR COUCHES!
Where “At ease” is actually an active command
And “and give me twenty!” is removed from the order “Drop”
Funny how Syr N’j's attitude mirrors Gravedusts, but with opposite results – she’s going to do something about it, rather then just let the interracial hatred fester.
“Wilt my father’s leaves” – been there, done that…
I’m noticing that every character is getting their time to shine, can’t wait for our friendly neighborhood berserker to do some berserking…
I think if bandit does any shining, then she’s not doing her job properly :)
“Hot diggity damn girl… youre a vet?”
“Well, Humans really are disgusting animals, so that’s technically accurate.”
“Yes and no. I didn’t do much fighting. I was a field medic”
“You don’t look much like a veteran… you look a bit… weedy.”
I love how Frigg looks disappointed in the fourth panel
Agreed. I’d like to think that she was ready to haul off and buy a pint out of “respect for her service” or some such. “Whaddaya mean yer just some sissy medic?! Hits or GTFO!”
I often spend time marveling at the awesome expressions in this comic, but now I’ve been super-spoilt on them by one of the ones only appearing in the print book. (4th-to-last-panel in the book)
Field medics are cool. Even if your patient gets an arrow through the head right after anyway.
Yeah that was a little Saving Private Ryan right there. Or maybe that was in Band of Brothers, I can’t remember.
If you mean the taking off the helmet bit, that was Saving Private Ryan.
Also getting shot after stabilized. Earlier in the beach scene, a medic rejoices that a man is saved, then a sniper shoots the saved man in the head.
The medic doesn’t react all that well.
Grave Dust is being uncharacteristically verbose.
Anyway, a wood elf can dream though, a wood elf can dream…
Syr’nj’s focal point is the idealistic future she strives for. The conceivable future where, she knows, if we all just try, just hope, we could end these pointless, endless wars. We could end all the fighting and then realise in hindsight how pointless it all was, and laugh at our own folly.
Well, that and the spotlight that came out of nowhere.
I find it awesome and wonderful that the “vet” is the person mostly looking for the path to peace.
I too like the “wilt my father’s leaves” comment. That’s just a fun thing to say!
She only did it to uproot her family’s barking traditions.
And plant the seed of acceptance, in hope that peace should bloom.
a very flowery description… I like it!
Leaf it to us to put together a nice turnip phrase.
I wish to observe that panel 3 is the absolute most adorable Frigg has been this entire comic. Look at her, she’s got the sparkly wide-eyed-little-girl eyes going on.
Noooo, that’s her “OMIGOD She’s got COMBAT DRUGS in her stash!” look ^_^
Syr’nj really looks quite beautiful in that top panel, I must say.
