Based on the hair in the silhouette, I’m guessing our mysterious mercenary is Zoe from Sluggy Freelance.
Every time heroes eavesdrop on the villains, I tend to assume that the villains know the heroes are listening, until proven otherwise.
Agreed. Faye is playing a dangerous game.
Indeed. I’ll say this, “Faye, veil spell scroll. Marketplace. Backup. That is all.”
I’d like to think that’s her attitude right now. After hearing all that, the sooner her mission is done, the better off everyone will be.
If I were the hero/heroine, that would be MY automatic assumption, unless it were MY hero and equipped with a Cloak of Shadow which would put our present hero team’s magical powers, put together, to utter shame.
And even then, I would assume “if anything can go wrong, it will”. :)
No. Way. FELIX was behind Accel’s death sentence? He’s the reason that shit happened? I knew he was a low-grade, scum-licking bastard, but never did I imagine him to be on such a high level of assholeness!
I wouldn’t exactly say Felix is behind it, but he knows how to take advantage of
But the king is involved, by Felix’s own admission – is he not? In fact it appears as if the king is motivating the whole scheme. Or is Felix implying something else entirely? (You see how your remark modifies my thoughts below about what is really going on.)
Actually, I’m not the slightest bit surprised now that it’s out in the open. We got set up good – SOME motive had to lie behind the king skewering and tormenting his own son. Well, now we have an adequate explanation.
Sigh. And I wonder why little shocks me and nothing surprises me anymore. Experience has taught me to look for adequate causes for improbable effects – something which, in the real world, too many people seem to be forgetting how to do.
Sneak… sneak… sneak
Could be literal. Frank gets some poor sap’s heart and stabs Accel deep enough to get the right amount of his blood to fool any magical scans on it. Thus protecting his son.
Keeping Accel hanging around under guard as a backup policy Deep in the catacombs fits too.
Alternatives: heart as magical item (one of the dreamed ones most likely), some jewel Frank has, or Accel’s sister Ellessa.
Who would ever suspect kingly secrets to be discussed in an unguarded back alley?
Haven’t you heard? Clandestine meetings are only allowed to happen in back alleys, dimly lit rooms/hallways, and sewers that inexplicably don’t seem to smell.
Metal Gear Amya. :D
Careful Faye…you don’t want a “!” condition…
Just read the entire webcomic so far, and I wanted to say that its beautiful and I am so happy I found it. Thank you for sharing your talents on the web! <3
Getting the heck out of town and back to the others is a damn good idea right now Faye. Get to it while you can.
