Should be “Bandit : Harky’s ankles :: Week after Christmas : Prices at Walmart”.
When you’re right, you’re right. Fixed that.
For those of us who came late, what was it before?
I only just loaded it and I’m seeing “Bandit : the week after Christmas :: Harky’s ankles : prices at Wal-Mart,” which I presume is the original.
There’s a joke here about a yellow smiley face and leather strap blisters, but I can’t quite find it.
What is Everything is halved?
Cut below the Ankles (supposedly).
Good use of distraction, Bandit. I just hope that the Achilles heel is as much of a weakness on him as it is on humans.
Seems to be. If it is, he’s about to fall over on his face
Ow! Dude…..OW! DUDE…..OW!
at first i wondered why she didn’t go for the hamstrings just behind the knee, but then it occurred to me..
can she swing that high?
i don’t think we’ve ever seen him in proper proportion compared to, say, byron.
Considering she can jump over Syrn’j, I’m gonna go with, “Yes.” Ankles are just easier, I guess.
I used to think that hamstrings were at the ankles. Until now.
Somehow or another I’m having a flashback to my SAT’s.
Wellp, this fight is over.
Don’t count your bosses before they’re ganked.
Hey Harki, the Christmas cake is ready. Would you care for a “slice”?!
I’m sensing regeneration properties in the ruby- which’ll be used to heal gravedust after they pry it from his cold, dead bellybutton.
Pretty much. Next thing we’ll see that Harky wasn’t even fazed by his wound.
That’s one way to cut someone down to size.
It’s about time he was brought to heel.
She’s such a cute little anklebiter.
You all have a terrible tendon-cy to pun.
And so do I!
id say not!
like harky, you haven’t got a leg to stand on.
Bandit was never very good at hanky panky, but cutting this guys legs off is close…
Don’t trolls have regeneration or something though?
I suppose they do. But it surely takes some time before becoming effective.
The Achilles Tendon, one of nature’s flashing weakspots.
Brought to you by the same forces responsible for the Solar Plexus, Male External Reproductive Organs, and that perennial favorite, The Throat.
Hey, Don’t be down on nature, man. To be fair these are pretty easy places to protect. I mean, the alternative was being a turtle.
The throat groin of the head.
Goddamn. Yeeouch. That ought to end the fight right there, unless he has superhuman powers, which is entirely possible.
Oh hey look at Bandit being all efficient!
And if this doesnt work: aim for the Head. Cutting of the Head is never wrong, am i right Highlander?
And: a big YAY for Science!!! *wave Pompoms*
What about Hydras?
if we go for pure biology (not necessarily a good mix with mythology, mind you), it should have worked with hydra too, albeit not being efficient. cut them off constantly for a while and the hydra’s heart should have so many head to keep supplied with blood that it’s bound to give up at some point, resulting in a heart attack. you’ll likely get eaten 30 times before that, tho.
Or just the GitP approach of making a hydra meat stand after the heads are too heavy for the hydra to stand upright.
SNEAK ATTACK!!! Bandit’s not a
thief for nothing. (sorry for the double post)
That’s not science-ish, that’s Counter-Strike-ish!
You think flash grenades just grow on trees?
Maybe where Syr is from they do
I do believe Syr’ng qualifies as a “flash”er now, though. Kinda wish she’d flash more often, though.
1st panel looks and sounds so much like Real World Warfare …
I like. :-)
okay let’s see. I’m guessing, Frigg had to take a move to stand back up, another move to get her shield back up and running. A GM discretionary call. Syr’nj throws a flash powder equivalent. Byron moves to flanking position, and then Bandit circled to flank as well.
The troll engaged on his initiative so he’s not flat footed, so this all works out all nice and proper.
if he wasn’t flat footed before he will be soon.
Like i always say, it’s the players’ responsibility to surprise the gm. Case in point.
But I thought that Hamstring was a Warrior ability. Arms tree, right? Been awhile.
Hamstring is a Warrior ability in WoW. This isn’t WoW. While it is a fantasy setting with party type roles that are similar to D&D or WoW, it is neither. So, instead of saying “That’s not real! They can’t have that ability!”, just remember that if you give anyone a blade, they can cut out someone’s Achilles tendon without much training there, hoss.
*gasp* He’s parried my Japes! Saving throw!
‘S not Hamstring, ‘s goin’ after the Chili Heel. Classic Rogue/Villain attack. Hamstrings are higher up.
That looks so incredibly painful.
I’m wondering if that EGH is low pitched and rumbly, or high pitched and girly. I can’t get the latter out my head heeee
I just keep hearing it in my head as “Egg.”
OH GOD, SHE HAMSTRINGED HIM!!!
It was Super Effective!
Well let’s hope trolls can’t regenerate like in most mythologies.
That’s not the hamstrings, that’s the Achilles tendon. As in the same Achilles that died from being shot in much the same place (supposedly). The hamstrings are on the back of the thigh.
I am loving this comic and the base humour of the posters. My question is, are those gargantuan doors below Harki’s viewing platform going to open soon?
“gargantuan doors” below his “viewing platform,” hehheh heh
I have no idea. I haven’t read that far.
Really? Nobody? Guess I’ll have to do it.
She blinded me… with SCIENCE!!
Copycat. I said that on the last page…
And THAT my friends, is why you never ever piss off the Rogue.
Backstab + Sneak Attack + Flanking + Level X = OWIE 4 Harki
+ Successful Called Shot/Critical Strike to Major Wounding Area
I take back everything I said about “the new guy.” That page is the most dynamic, amazing sequence I have ever seen in a webcomic. It’s better than most print comics.
Thank you, Frosty.
a work of art becomes Art when it communicates exactly the emotion the Artist intended.
that last panel is Art. because OWOWOWOWOWOW!!!
I wanted to come up with a good pun, but I can never do that unless it’s unin-tendon-ed.
