The set of upper frames slowly advancing Rana’s story is reminding me of early Thimble Theater, which featured one storyline above the title and one below it. Since Rana’s activity is high in the air relative to the rest of the action, it makes a sort of spatial sense.

We had to cap Magda’s powers somewhere, though I get the impression her endurance was greater in the next battle she participates in after this one. It’s possible that her powers increased with practice and as Tectonicus grew familiar with her.

Believe it or not, Phil and I were both so focused on Fr’Nj’s outrage at Auraugu attacking a place of healing that we almost missed the obvious: the fact that he’s going after her beloved sister, combined with the above, is what means all bets are off.
