Ohh ... oh I see.
I honestly expected her to grab the golden duck thing.
Ohhhh i see now.
that golden bird on the jugde WAD a real one once.
but our "Midas" might have made a slightly change to it.
Items that give you badass magic? Damn, that's crazy :O
But can Ariara use it as well?
The judge is being too quiet, I'm guessing a certain Pirate is about to make a fatal error... Like wearing a magical artifact without knowing how it works.
At the very least if I was a super powerful Mage King I would have power granting items like that rigged up so they killed anyone who tried without permission.
Ultimate power for Ariara? Burk can still take her!
On a related note, this means Ariara now has access to all three forms of magic... and we can expect her to use all three regularly.
u got to give him credit his expression dosent change even being controled.
Are you pulling a fullmetal alchemist beginning here, Neo?
Probably not as I'm not sure what you're referencing.
Oh shit, I just realized something by going back to the page showcasing the 3 high priests of the Mage King: the other 2 ALSO have magic-giving amulets.
Damn, Neo, dat attention to detail.
So in your view, the Mage King is Father, and the Priests are like Homunculi? Otherwise I have no clue what you mean either.
Bravely bravely run away!
So, ball's in Moe's court now?
So, is someone telling Moe what's going on here? Because apparently he won't act without this knowledge.
Well, the tables sure turned quickly enough. But... I mean just like we said about him penning her in. "That can't be it, right?" Why would you give a person with no powers of their own a powerful amulet like that? Hmm..
@Tom: not only do the three high priests have an amulet ( http://www.neorice.com/hoh_525) but if you look at the Mage King's relatives (http://www.neorice.com/hoh_520) one of them, not Ludwig, has one as well. In fact, checking other Ludwig panels I don't see him with it anywhere. I wonder if he is a natural?
I find it hard to believe that someone as experienced and powerful as the judge wouldn't research a spell that could be used while paralyzed especially since he has all the resources of the mage king at his disposal
There's no guarantee she can use the amulet, of course. After all, she's no Priest. Maybe it requires a special connection.
We shall see.
I believe Esper is commenting on the opening sequence of both Fullmetal Alchemist series, in Leyore, where the priest has a "philosopher's stone" that gives him immense alchemical (read:magic) power but disintegrates when it's taken from him. He's subsequently entirely powerless, and the Elric brothers have no immediate boost.
