Chapter 54 : page 93

Chapter 54 : page 93

Postby Kern » Mon Jul 23, 2018 6:31 am

A stab at her enemy's neck is all she got before being caught by the neck herself.
There isn't much she can do now. And if there is any doubt, there you go, the incoming legion see themselves as allies to the locals.

I can't tell, did she manage to get it deep enough to kill her before she was stopped or did she just manage a nick?

Even if it was a little more than a nick there likely are enough blood specialists about to seal it up. She might sound a little more like Marge's sisters after but eh.

Were the Nidras standing around doing nothing while their leader was killed? Why did a Sarghess have to save her, while being shot by her subordinates?

When did a last-ditch suicidal desperate charge ever achieve anything in this comic? Just a graze, obviously (although it's the kind of graze that should sting a little. I mean, stopping a sword thrust with your bare fingers? Ouch!)

Looks like Kel's plan officially went down the crapper, even after the owl sacrificed themselves to make it happen. Poor mimians.

I call bullcrap, more so, what the hell do they expect Ariel's group to do? Just lie down and take the slamming of their colony and not do ANYTHING about it? They got the airship, and then they get marked? What the heck type of sense does that even make. In this case the Nids were the ones that decided to toss the first stone, and Ariel's group is to blame? Yes, yes the attacking other Nid controlled colonies, but like seriously this was turn about fair play/a taste of own medicine. Seriously, I don't give a crap what anyone's reasons are. This is nonsensical.

Looked like they got knocked down/away by Chakri's air sorcery, then had Sarghress legionnaires in their face (who, as you can tell by looking at the bolt Roma's pulling out of her shoulder, weren't identified as friendly). The last page shows a dead/dying wolf at most 10 feet behind Adira. So combat's a bit snafu. Pacing is a bit rushed, but you have to remember Kite's health problems have slowed the pace of updates. This chapter's already dragged on because of that, and I think Kern's trying to move on to the climax of the chapter.

You invite debate with that rant, but then admit you won't give a crap what explanation is offered. A bit unfair.

Yes, this is nonsensical in terms of what is fair. But war and politics are never fair. The main Sarghs want Ariel and co out of power. This whole fiasco is a convenient excuse. We've all seen numerous examples of that in the real world, where a side takes some random nonsensical excuse to invade another country. It's BS, but the warmongers hardly care about that.




PS: This isn't calling anyone out in particular, but I'm going to note again that the attitude of the forums has gotten rather toxic, lately. Every thread I see has complaints in it, or people getting defensive over the complaints. It's not a "hater vs echo chamber" thing, it's a "negative and rude vs negative and rude" thing.

I am no moderator, and in fact am wholly unsuited for that. But we've not got enough active moderators on the forum to police things, unless it's major. There is an air of low-level hostility in the forum, not enough for anyone to really deserve a ban for any one thing, but just a general atmosphere. And it's a bit of a problem. We need to moderate ourselves, or it's going to get worse. A lot of people have already left the forums over it, regardless of their opinions of the comic itself.

It's like food poisoning vs a bad cold. The former is REALLY nasty, but you can throw up and feel better afterwards. The latter makes you feel nauseous and crappy, but it's not quite enough to make you throw up, and it lingers far longer.

I'm not inviting any debate, cause I have no interest in debating. I cannot state my feelings on the matter? It's not like I was toxic to the creators, I was merely speaking my feelings on this whole thing.

So before you go jumping down my throat, seems like you yourself are guilty of ranting a bit yourself. Being toxic is insulting others which was NEVER what I implied.

It just doesn't make sense that I became a catalyst for your point to take flight. From my perspective, they are bad guys, that have a personal agenda. And well anyone that are allies to Nids, well, get no sympathy from me. With all the Nids and Snad have done. Seriously nothing but suffering and misfortune for everyone.

What an entrance! It seems some Sarghs emaluate Quain, even as some Sang stays back.

I didn't expect Chakri to land a hit on Adira, tbh. It looks like this 'duel' went as well as the whole plan: some damage was done, but it was largely unsuccessful and will be healed with time.

It is however now obvious to Felde that Sarghress is less whole than just small heir follower group - that Quill participated in fighting despite wanting to stay out of politics means she was forced into it - by whoever Sarghress leadership is, I expect, though I won't completely discount Kel'noz having some really good blackmail, or it being effect of a third actor.

Though I must say, I find myself wistful that Ariel never got to use her shapeshifting for political intrigue. Now, the challenge is rather open.

As for Chakri? Rushing, but her head isn't off yet. There must be plans for her, then.

Quain

on a different note. I still don't know how the entire story can be wrapped up in this or the next chapter.

Well dude, but all dow are bad just as Nids. Quain, Sargs, Ariel and Co, Kyorls, Sullisisins, Jaal, Sharen, Vloz and all others - they are nothing but suffering and misfortune for everyone of their kind (and other races). o_O

Erm.... you do know that a majority of everything that has happened has it's roots connected to Nids? Like most everything is caused by Snad being Snad. So no, not all drow are as bad as Snad, who views everyone as pawns to use. Just look at how easily Snad casted aside Kalki her technically flesh and blood.

Emphasis in bold.I responded to you and another post, then as an afterthought brought up the issue I mentioned. You were hardly the catalyst. I'm sorry I was unclear, but I felt specifying the person in particular who did prompt me would only stir up trouble, so I was intentionally vague. Again, sorry. My intent wasn't to single anyone out, and certainly not you in particular.

I do stand by my point, though, to be clear. I do feel the forums have gotten heated and everyone seems to be on a hair-trigger of late. It's a nasty feedback loop.
