End of the plan.

Sounds legit.

OK, so you have Veda's guarantee... But is it in writing?

18167: Splodastic - Wednesday, August 29 2018 - 3:41 AM

Sure Noah's power is pretty cool but Bubblegum over there has been holding that bubble for one and a half comics straight.

18168: Cluedrew - Wednesday, August 29 2018 - 5:22 AM

That sounds... entirely too trusting. Both in general and from the empire in general.

There may be some "you had better be right, or else" subtext I'm missing. I think the last text box is heading that way.

Really you accepted 5? Why 5? I tried 4 and well I was disappointed. Even a rudimentary bot can determine that 4 can come after this sequence. 2^0,2^1,2^2,2^n and so on. Ooooh. Nevermind answered that question for myself. This is a prove you are human test. I forgot lol.

I'm left wondering: Has Cherri learned to sense other magic users as they approach the way Noah did?

@Splodastic: That is rather impressive now you mention it.

@Cluedrew: Noah might find himself in the position of having to use his power to wish someone into captivity...

@Entrope: I'd imagine that's because King Arthur always seems to make a specific mistake:

Wow the Empire is so thoughtful and of high morale Standards.
Where can i sign up? i mean really, who wouldn't want to work for These guys.

So...

1. Veda guarantees something will happen if they fund her project.
2. The Empire doesn't take kindly to people who waste its resources fruitlessly.
3. Being a magic user outside of Veda's project is so illegal in the Empire it's punishable by death.

So, if the hunt fails, then exeunt Veda, her project gets cancelled, and all the magic kids (plus Kimberly) become criminals destined to be executed.

No pressure, Noah.

@Cluedrew

I take the last sentence as more threatening to Lina Veda than to the kids. Possibly the whole mission is more important to her than to the pupils, and maybe it's intended as a test of her methods, and her usefulness for the empire.

18174: Guest - Wednesday, August 29 2018 - 2:13 PM

@Saiko
I would agree, except this whole speech comes off as manipulative, and Veda isn't there to hear this, and is unlikely to listen to the kids. This is a subtle but explicit offer to bestow horrific murder upon those who misrepresent themselves, even those who do so only through the implication provided by cooperating while under duress. I doubt that The Empire would even bother saying "You have failed me for the last time" before performing permanent punitive practices upon small but theoretically dangerous children.

The threat may seem aimed at Veda, but remember Guy's warning to Noah.

18176: Whispers of Sorrow - Thursday, August 30 2018 - 9:45 PM

Sounds to me that the blame for any failures here have been pre diverted to the magical children.

@Whispers of Sorrow

Thank you for that informative video's. Made me wake everyone at home through laughter in the wee hours of the morning.

I don't like wasting people's time, or people wasting my time either. That makes me worried. What if I do?
