And, I should add.. how exactly does Tramennis expect to talk to Hamster this turn anyway? Does Jetstone even have a thinkamancer that we've seen?


I expect they'd raise a flag and get an Archon to cast a thinkagram.

In other cases where there are no Archons/Thinkamancers, I guess the highest ranking unit gets the right to parley on behalf of their side - note Ansom signalled Jillian to parley face to face even though he equally could have summoned Maggie to open a few thinkagrams.

Also note that Sammy accepted Charlie's "agreement" without consulting his Ruler.

So if it wasn't for the fact that Jetstone really want to talk to Parson in particular, they would probably just talk to Wanda.

    So, Balder's not struck by lightning. Good.
    He should come here, we don't have lightning much, a nice juicy 5.0 aftershock, but not lightning

    Good catch, but looking back the the archives, Parson has been pupil-less since... at least when he decided to uncroak the volcano. Pinpointing the exact comic will have to come at a time that isn't 1am, though.

    Can Parson actually use the staff? 'Cause when Wanda had a similar one it could bounce Archon blasts. It appears those eager elves dropped some items.

    I'm kinda worried for Parson.

    His (apparent) target is A) moving and B) assisted by a high level warlord.
    I think that stabbing even a couple units and letting the side they belonged to find them will pretty much get Jetstone and Haggar attacking each other. Ditto on simply setting of a dirtamancy bomb somewhere.
    Anyway Parson is a heavy+warlord+magically equiped. A warlord can't really even stand up to a shot from a normal heavy that isn't using magic equitment. One good stab from Parson and its over.

    Poor Slately has to use a hook on a pole to retrieve his finery from the coat rack. I bet that isn't demeaning at all.

    Edit: The clasp on Parson's cloak is a power button. It probably indicates the magical nature of the cloak.

    Because nobody seemed to notice, the sword rack in the back is actualy from the game Puzzle Pirates. That is the Mac Power button (on/off) on his cloak. What is his cloak made out of, a ramwinnerdog? Zelda/TMNT for the rest.

    Except for his actual sword and staff. I do not know what games they are iconic in. That staff is so generic skull on top that i can think of at least 3 different anime/games it could be out of.

    Parson is about to smack around the one warlord with whom he has perhaps the most in common.

    I guess that proves the coat rack is not a magic item :P

    Come one, no one has tried to name every item on the tables yet?
    Panel 2:
    Bomb(Zelda), Piece of Heart Necklace, Arrow of Light(?), Bracelet of Power(? Zelda, not sure), Shredders Bracer, and I am pretty sure that is Skelletor's Staff. I do not know what cape that is, thou I recognize it, and the spear and rod are too generic for me to guess at. I feel like a moron for not being able to name that Sword.

    Panel 4:
    Hyrule Shield, The Rest of Shredders Armor, Master Sword(on the rack in the background), I can not name the other two swords.

    Panel 7:
    Power Ring button clasp.

    lol. I hope you are right, it is better than my mundane interpretation - I had assumed he was making a red flag to signal that they wanted to talk first and then kill them (like the real Jolly Roger, when you annoy pirates enough that they raise the red-backed flag rather than the black to show that its a fight to the death. keeps happening to me, when will they learn ;) well, never. obviously) rather than the white flag of parley and surrender.

    I think on balance that Glory of Arioch has it though as a) the hook is there already waiting and b) Cubbins or Ace could easily conjure or make an appropriate flag

    As to the rest. Bring it!!

    That sword, my friend, is none other than Glamdring, the Foe-Hammer. Otherwise known as Gandalf's sword.

    He gets sent back until his task is done. ;)
    But just saying, that would be an epic way to cripple GK for Book 3. Not gonna make anymore parallels, cause it'd be too easy to go too far.

    Interesting. Combined with the staff, does that mean that Parson is going to pretend to be a caster in battle gear? Seems unlikely that the Magic Kingdom would fall for it.

    That Wanda's staff? Looks familiar. Or he could just be using it as a mace.

    Might be helped along with some foolamancy or thinkamancy. The closer Parson looks to what he's trying to pass as, the easier it is for a spell to do the rest of the work.
