I actually admire Syr’nj for this. Gut-reaction admire. Beautifully written, well done.
And, because I can’t let the geek in me stay silent about this, that’s one HELL of a Diplomacy score.
Felt the same, was going to say pretty much the same, so Ill just agree.
Diplomacy is great, but all the more awesome when following awesome motivation.
Now we just have to wait to see Frig’s reaction.
Oh boy. >_>
yeah. wasn’t expecting gratitude… but damn Syr! that i a major charisma stat you must’ve been hidin this whole time!
That right there is what happens when you roll a natural 20 on your Diplomacy.
I thought when you crit a social encounter you just fart in the other persons face.
I’m pretty sure that’s what you get for a 0…
Yeah, you gotta love that Diplomacy Score. Now here’s hoping she didn’t flub her Sense Motive.
Maybe Syr’nj or Byron should say something like, “We aren’t done paying YOU back, yet.”
geez erica’s good at emotions. that middle strip of panels is really human.
â™«The More You Knowâ™«
Knowledge checks are half the battle.
The other half is VIOLENCE.
That should totally be a shirt. “Knowledge checks are half the battle. The other half is violence”
I’m sure if Bandit stood on Dusty’s shoulders, they could work it out.
Inb4 Frigg brains her with the mace.
lawl at Syr’s natural 18 charisma
Also, BanditXGravedust time.
Yeah, Bandit seems to be all up in Gravy’s personal space. I get the impression they may be having the conversation on the down low and so closeness is necessary; but he looks old enough to be her grandfather. I wonder if he goosed her. It would explain the puckered expression… well that or the tense situation (but I’m leaning toward dwarf grabiness).
NICE – I love the last line…although in some cases it will be shoulder to kneecap. :)
Eye to eye, shoulder to shoulder…
Just to say what we’re all thinking, the natural progression for this moment is ‘Chest to chest.’
or in gravedust’s case- eye to chest. panel 2. you see it.
I’m sure Gravedust’s just happy to have someone around his own height. Or weight for that matter.
Back to back . . . belly to belly . . .
They really are the perfect party, aren’t they? Able to play off each other’s strengths so well…
Hooray for friendship?
“Don’t even fucking try to consider thinking you’re going to get out of here without joining the party.”
Diplomacy nothing, she maxed out her lesbian undertones skill and we all know it.
How do you think diplomacy works, silly?
It’s the reason why all the girls were sent to the sky elves, after all.
FRIENDSHIP SPEECHES *awesomeface*
Why is Bandit so chummy with all these guys already? It doesn’t feel like ‘Gnomish playfulness,’ I’ll tell ye.
And heh hee, Frigg… her every act belies her true opinions.
Lighting in the comic continues to astound. I don’t want to take it for granted, not ever.
So I’m not the only one thinking that “get in there” didn’t mean the discussion so much as it did the two hot chicks standing close together? The “observe” is pretty obvious IMO
I think Bandit’s all chummyquick ‘cuz she’s a total fangirl who’s been following them around from the beginning for entertainment value, and now that they’re hangin’ she’s all BFF an’ shiznit.
Retolling the bell for Erica’s brilliant lighting effects. Most comics’ version of a night scene would have them trying to slip away under cover of afternoon in the biggest wagon in the shire.
Awesomesauce. Syr’nj just became my new favorite elf.
Lesbian undertones? Dear god, man. Though I’m all for hot girl on girl undertones, Frigg’d be likely to beat you to near death with one of your own limbs and then set you on fire for that kind of thing. :<
Syr pulled child psych 101. Props. I did the same sort of stuff to my brother. He never got it.. wonder if Frigg will?
Gravedust saw it coming the whole times. His observe felt more like a “My girl’s got this.”
Plus, I don’t think it was the speech that got her. I think it was getting her mace back.
That is just awesome
That’s a pretty heavy and well spiked olive branch Syr is offering Frigg in the last panel. *sappy grin* Love the facial expressions throughout this comic.
You know, Byron may be the one calling out the orders during the battle…
But I consider Syrn’j to be just as much if not more the “leader” of the group. She’s the one seeing the bigger picture than Byron so far in my book.
Though Byron fills in as this too, the term coined by TVtropes (which I hesitate to bring up because I recall it not being well liked) is ‘Team Mom”. And seeing as Syr’nj’s goals are the reconciling of whole *species*, it does seem likely she’s looking at a bigger scale/picture than Byron.
It’s not that TVtropes is not well liked around here. It’s just that, personally, I don’t see the fun in trying to fit every detail of a story into pre-determined categories from a reader standpoint.
Isn’t it more fun to just take in the story as it is and form your own opinions?
It’s like being around that guy in the theater who shouts “DON’T GO IN THAT ROOM, THE KILLER’S IN THERE!” Of course he’s in there. It’s not about the surprise, it’s about the suspense.
Maybe that’s just me.
At the same time, though, sometimes it’s just fun enough to fill in wikis! So, we’re happy to be on there if that means you guys are having fun with it/us.
Some amazing wisdom from our wood elf, the apple has indeed fallen far from the tree.
Yep, Syr totally minmaxed her Diplomacy bonus. She’s just great -and look at the wise dwarf who already gets how it’ll all pan out. And the Aid Another from Byron. This party’s indeed made of win & awesome, dear sirs.
Is that a tear I see forming in the corner of Frigg’s eye?
Very nice – great job folks.
And, that, my friends, is the sound…
That’s the most awesome thing ever. Also, I think Frigg just got the best medicine for her wounded pride that she could possibly have had.
Syrâ€™nj, The Idealist, doing what she does best.
No, but seriously, good page today.
Kudos on managing to include a moral, and such a cliche moral at that, in a way that seems natural and believable. A great warm and fuzzy moment.
Just found the comic. Epic win! I can hardly wait for more.
OTP OTP OTP! Also les yay! I don’t care that my femme-slash goggles are on too tight XP
Rolled successful saving throw.
Syrâ€™nj, you made my week.
Love how GD and Bandit are huddled together. :3
“We don’t have to see eye to eye to stand shoulder to shoulder” is the perfect slogan for any kind of alliance, good and bad. And it’s yet another GA tshirt begging to happen.
