#161 – “Ghould Rush”

Yes, I know it’s a tad late. It took a whole lot longer to make than I expected it to, especially with all the ghouls everywhere. There was a whole lot of custom tweaking just to get some of the poses I wanted, and some scenes that changed entirely because the perspective or idea I first had didn’t actually work. I’ll admit, the main reason the last pane is so large is that I wanted it to be mostly top down.. except that I didn’t actually have any top-down backdrops from the mines to speak of, much because you can’t exactly walk on the roof. Still. Ghouls being slain. Huzzah.

    Crack! Glargh! Krkk! Rrrr-! Raa-Ack! Graah! Rack!

    … reminds me of good old batman movies ^^ shame to see that our dear druid still havent really gotten into the whole casting spells thing, yet i find that a personal touch of hers, which is quite charming considering that everyone and their grandmother in Azeroth is running around with item level 245 stuff these days… so i say “GO pacifism!”

      I figure one of these days, Te’len will find herself seperated from the more capable fighters in the group, or perhaps they will be incapicated somehow, abd she’ll be forcet to face them with her Druid abilities, or otherwise overcome what’s holding her back. The little quote from Bearwalker inn her image on the cast page could be hinting at some “defining” moment like this, and we all know how Nhani likes to drop hints…

      CVourse, I could be getting this all wrong..

            Lol, my roommate bought a pair of handcuffs, and I took the opportunity to teach myself how to escape from them. I wrote that comment while taking a break from my efforts.

            It took me a while, but now I can get myself out of a pair of handcuffs in just a few seconds with a fork or paper clip or whatever other miscellaneous item is lying around that is stiff enough to trip the interior mechanism.

              lol good thing your lockpicking skill was high enough, though i’m not sure if i want to know why your roommate bought a pair of handcuffs in the first place

              Handcuffs are absurdly easy to open, especially if you can see what you’re doing, as they are a very simple ratchet and pawl mechanism. Disengage the pawl, they open right up. I’ve never done it, but because I know exactly what happens inside, I have no doubt I could without too much trouble.

    And in order: Shield Block – Revenge – Cleave – Intimidating Shout – Intervene – Cheat Death – Skull Crack – EXP gain.

    Sorry. Didn’t know what else to say, and didn’t want to be cliché and say it’s another great page – I think we all already know that just by looking at it. :D

      I think the right thing should be: Shield Block – Revenge – Heroic Strike – Demoralizing Shout – Cleave – Cheat Death – Execute
