Well, we learn few interesting things here. Captain Archer probably has a weaker leadership bonus that Lady Sylvia Lazarus or else I don't know why it would be useful to stack him with her. If Wanda decrypt the dragon, she will be free but if not she will be free in the next turn when the corpse will depop. So there are no urgency to liberate for Wanda her. They are still under the attack of Jetstone's archers and Wanda is better to find a cover and decrypt whatever unit she may find. Parson is on his way and this stack can do damage without his warlock free. The dragon make a good cover so there are no real danger for them for the moment. Jetstone will probably stop to shoot on them when they will send troops to assault the Courtyard. This will probably be the perfect time to free Sylvia.

Elle peut restée coincer sous ce dragon jusqu'à demain.

S.P.P.

    As far as Sylvia's injuries, it seems likely that Wanda (a Master-class Croakamancer with the 'Pliers) can heal her without a scroll, whether or not she needs it to survive to the next turn. After all, a Dollamancer can heal cloth golems, per Ansom's comments on the bridge.

    Great update. It took me a few sentences to decide whether "Fud" was a reference to FUD (Fear Uncertainty and Doubt) or to Elmer Fudd. Clearly, it's the former. But a scwewy wabbit would not have gone amiss here, either. :mrgreen:

    Hmm... I think I'm reasonably immersed in geek culture, but I had never heard of Firesign Theater until I read this (and consulted wikipedia). Not everything from the late 60s-early 70s is going to survive the ravages of time. But I also think Python's place is quite safe.

    Don't forget that in Erf world time is not linear and is locally variant.
    If a side is not in your battlespace you don't even notice their turn.

    This probably works even in a mixed battle. The archers up top want to volley, volley, volley.
    However they must take turns with combat being resolved down below.
    So what might be volley, volley, volley on top of the tower could be several extended engagements and movement down below.

    I don't think we know how a single unit vs unit action is resolved relative to mass unit actions. And I don't think we should as it would limit the narrative to much.
    Although I suspect it is along the lines of a single resolution event for A vs B.
    But the Actions taken by A vs B could take some time to reach the conclusion suggested by the resolution event. And drama/time being what it is A vs B has all the time it needs to to meet the resolution before it encounters another event.

    Nope. Wanda didn't heal Ansom after he sparred with Ossomer, and left him behind to command the bridge stack because he was down a few hits. But certainly, she could free Sylvia by decrypting the dwagon.

    If Captain Archer is based heavily enough off of *that* Archer, then Sylvia has no need to worry about running out of arrows.
    Warlord / Dittomancer for the win!

    (Also, I gotta wonder what her battle poem is too and if it beats his.)

    That is not why Wanda left Ansom at the bridge. She left him there because she didn't want to bring him to Jillian, because of all the crap that would necessarily result from that. Of course, this ended up screwing Wanda over as it left Ansom open to capture by Jillian, but she really couldn't have known that at the time.

    Interestingly it says "never to be recited".

    Quote:
    I have done it again.
    One turn in ten or a hundred and ten
    I manage it----

    A sort of walking miracle, my skin
    Bright as a pink flower on bone,
    My right foot

    A battle trophy,
    My face a featureless, fine
    Doll's head.

    Peel off the crest
    O my enemy
    Do I terrify?----

    The nose, the eye pits, the full set of teeth?
    The sour brimstone
    Will vanish in a turn.

    Soon, soon the flesh
    The ’crypt ripped will be
    At home on me

    And I, a smiling woman.
    I am only Level Six
    And like my Mistress I have many times to croak.

    This is Number Three
    What a trash
    To annihilate each side.

    What a million filaments.
    The Carnymancy crowd
    Shoves in to see

    Them unveil me hand and foot----
    The big strip tease.
    Gentlemen, ladies,

    These are my hands,
    My knees.
    I may be skin and bone,

    Nevertheless, I am the same, identical woman.
    The first time it happened I was One.
    It was an accident.

    The second time I meant
    To last it out and not come back at all,
    I rocked shut

    As a scarlet seashell.
    They had to call and call
    And misname me to breathing again.

    Croaking
    Is an art, like everything else.
    I do it exceptionally well.

    I do it so it feels like hell.
    I do it so it feels real.
    I guess you could say I've a call.

    It's easy enough to do so in a spell.
    It's easy enough to do it and stay put.
    It's the theatrical

    Comeback in broad day
    To the same place, the same face, the same brute
    Amused shout:

    "A miracle!"
    That knocks me out.
    There is a charge

    For the eyeing of my scars, there is a charge
    For the hearing of my heart----
    It really goes.

    And there is a charge, a very large charge
    For a word or a touch
    Or a soft plush

    Or my face on a shirt.
    So, so, my Warlord
    So, my Enemy.

    I am your opus,
    I am your valuable,
    The pure heroine doll

    That melts to a shriek
    I turn and burn.
    Do not think I underestimate your great concern.

    Ash, Ash--
    You poke and stir.
    Flesh, bone, there is nothing there----

    A limp gray banner,
    A blank shield,
    A fallen crown.

    My Titans, my Fate,
    Beware
    Beware.

    Out of ash
    I rise with my red hair
    And I eat men like air.

    I think warlords can lead any other unit, save perhaps a CWL or other superior unit (Overlord/King, perhaps? They don't typically see combat, but Stanley is a notable exception to that rule). Only the best warlord bonus would apply, letting us know that Sylvia out-ranks Archer.

    I figured warlords could lead other warlords but I didn't know they'd get a bonus. I wonder if it combines, if you can have a warlord leading more warlords who are all leading even more warlords, for uber bonuses.

    And I remember that episode, hehe. At least that one made more sense, Federation guy thinks a culture could benefit from the positive aspects of an otherwise evil group. After all, if you could remove the racism, genocide, and all the evil etc from Nazis, you end up with a group of people who value science, education, and physical fitness. Just like if you could somehow extract the racism from the KKK, you'd be left with a bunch of guys who like to hang out with their friends and drink. Note that I am not saying these would be good ideas or are even possible, just that I understand how someone could come to that conclusion. (Spoiler: In that episode it turns out that the nationalistic aspects of nazi-ism gave rise to racism and genocide. Good and evil aren't boolean, they're a sliding value, and the "my country can do no wrong/my people are the chosen of god" attitudes are what cause the problems.)

    The time travelers from the Enterprise episode were trying to ally with the worst boops in human history to have a great big ol' galaxy-wide time-bending boop-athon.

    Edit: Not sure if the forum has auto-censoring or not, but I actually wrote "boop" there, not curse words. :D


    > Interestingly it says "never to be recited".

    Maybe that means "never to be recited aloud"

    Not '10 arrows'. 'More than 10 arrows'. Considering this Hobgobwin is not acquainted with the concept of 'zero', it's not unreasonable to suppose he also isn't aquainted with numbers such as 'twenty' or 'thirty' or 'seventeen thousand'.


    Hey, good point... that's more arrows than Fud has fingers... could be a thousand! Edit... upon a reread this sounds sarcastic... isn't trying to be... it is a good point!

    But still... two heavies fall from the sky... one croaks a couple and dies, one croaks a bunch and lives. The one that lives is the one we are impressed by... the supposedly badass one that dies?... definitely attributable to circumstance... yet again.

    Also, in the last comic, the dwagon utterly failed to notice Antium running up to kill Wanda... just rezzed? Aye, rough circumstances.

    Now, I'm sure dwagons are hard core, but it would be great to see them in a situation where their hard-core-itude wasn't more than trumped by overwhelming odds. I'm sure we will!

    The one that died was also the priority target. Archery was aiming at IT, not the rider. That's why it took >10 hits in the first place, right? Yes, it would be nice to see the dwagons shine again. Demolishing 40% of the siege was nice, but we could use a bit more.

    Nice update now I wonder if they will meet up with the casters and get some more bonuses? Note much really going on except telling a fan favorite background person survived.

    We're probably gonna see more dwagon badassery shortly. The garrison is a maze of choke points for maximum damage from AoEs. Chokepoints to be sealed with pink breath or cwap, buildings that will trap gas and smoke in. And shiny targets for the siege attacks. And what the yellows just did. They sent the whole Jetstone force running, large scale splash damage and siege, ect.

    Warlord bonuses Stack if you put 2 or more Warlords in the same stack they both increase the stack. So when Wanda and Ansom were in the same stack everyone got Ansom's bonus and Wanda's Croakmancer leadership bonus for being decrypted.

    But in that case, Wanda was giving a caster bonus and Ansom was giving a leadership bonus. We don't know for sure if warlord bonuses stack, since there hasn't been a single example in the comic yet.

    it looks like the arrows only change speed during a few seconds at the top of their curve, then fall towards the ground at a constant rate.... which is also the same constant rate that dead dragons fall.

    I wonder if arrows also RISE at a constant rate? either way, This is going to have wacky consequences for things like ballistic tables...


    Max falling speed is constant across all objects in our world, too, by the way. I think it would be more shocking to discover that it WASN'T like that in Erfworld.
