So, Glyph went off to get his scouter?

Will he find out that Danzig's power level is...

No, never mind.

The anti-magic sword doesn't work.  >:( Boo! Crest says the exact thing I've been saying for a month and a half now. :D Yay! Predictably, Moss adds nothing constructive.  >:( Boo! Maytag is smart enough to realize a good idea when she sees it.  :D Yay!

Too late, already stuck in my head. It's funny how Moss calls crest stupid but respects May. Telling.

I really like the first panel and how Bern looks in the third, btw!

I hope that Maytag knows what she is talking about.  Regardless, the execution of her plan will likely be fun to watch  ;D.

Its easy to figure out what May is thinking.  She will do a faint to the North then do a quick flank march and attack from the south while getting the rest to build a wooden badger.  8)
What good is dreaming it if you don't actually do it?.

I'm betting on a combined dreadclaw drop pod and terminator assault with preliminary orbital bombardment.   :-X

Don't tell me the sword won't work cause it needs to be used with it's double(...)

I guessed right, but it's a bit anticlimatic, so her father too couldn't use his sword at all as anti-magical weapon since the time he gave his 2nd sword to Bern?
Or it's just May guessing and sword abilities are sealed by other mean or stick is not magical.
I like the cover for this chapter where Bern shows big X (no) sign with her swords to Glyph and Danzig :D

I can't remember a panel where Bern would not look good...

He has experience with Maytag, and KNOWS she can out think him. Crest is a "newbie" and by default has to be insulted (for the stupid idiot he is) until he proves otherwise, or Maytag tells Moss off.

I also think the "rush him" idea is just PART of the strategy.

What they should do is make Fata Morgana clone herself six or seven times. Then nobody gets killed and they get loads of free people-pillars.
Hi.
I've been out for two years, so warn me if I act like I missed something obvious. ^^;

...oh, and to anyone who missed me, I'm open to hugs, kisses, and intense tearful cuddles.

Well... I'm siding with Moss and Fata. Their group isn't really built for Maytag's strategy. I don't think they can take the abuse needed to be 'shields' of any sort. And even so, couldn't Danzig just send them flying straight into Bern? They're not real pillars.

yeah I don't really see moss ever agreeing to be beaten by a stick willingly. ::) it's a nice idea though. Go May! ^_^ i don't think Bern would agree to it even if they all agreed to it though. looking forward to see what happens next as always ^_^

hey Brion I found you in my car today and put you someplace safe and sis said hello. but i looked out the window like "where?" untill I turned and saw she meant you. :D :-*
Just loving it! :-*
let's sit and chat a while and see if I don't make you smile .;)

"Wow what a great strategy"?
Well gee, so much for mr emo-boy being super genius strategist.
I wonder when they'll think of, well, letting more than 1 person actually attack.
You know, more targets are harder to focus on, men being bad at multitasking and stuff.
Why does emo-boy have no sword anyway?

But yeah, the plot clearly centers around scouter power levels though so strategizing won't go too far before the plot-convenient solution comes walking right through the door I guess.

I think Moss may have killed that guy. We didn't exactly see what his LVL 2 Sorcery test was. Maytag's strategy IS a good one though. Bern needs "blockers" so she can get close enough to Danzig to use her swords.

Bern is too noble for such plan to use others...

So either she will think about something which will work or Glyph will come to the rescue.

Don't forget to check out his smile in the fourth panel here: http://www.flipsidecomics.com/comic/book0/fs20pg09.html

*lol* Ahh, I know what you mean though.  But in almost every manga you rarely hear of someone who isn't bad for a reason. Hitler was beaten by his father and Moss was beaten by others yet I still wish I could throw them both in a mental hospital with forced counciling.

Doesn't make a lot of sense that Grant would take one magick sword and leave the other behind considering it renders both of them as little more than light swords.  But maybe he had some further reason or motives that we're yet to be aware of.

I'm not sure what to make of the plan.  I guess they could enact it with just Maytag on one side and Crest on the other side of Bern, if she was willing.  Crest actually appears to have some kind of very light armor or padding, but Maytag looks very vulnerable so I'm actually quite worried about them possibly getting killed by a blow.  Still... Maytag could use the magick sword since it's still lighter than a normal sword (so she should be fine, even one handed) and Crest could used Bern's bag as a shield.

The other problem I see with the plan is that Danzig doesn't need to simply swing his stick back and forth. He can come in from the top and pin Bern then retract and extend the stick rapidly like he did the last time before either pulling the same on the others or simply batting them away with side blows.

Well, that's kind of a moot point now, anyway, since Danzig has overheard the plan.  Too bad  :(.  I vote for a surprise uppercut to the jaw while he's mouthing off  ;D.

I don't think it would matter that much if he did overhear the plan, he'd just have a little more time to think through what he might do but I can only imagine that he'd simply try his best to blow back the main competent melee fighters and then face the weaklings in close range and knock them down quickly.  Bern was injured badly by those blows and she's trained to take a hit and roll with it so there's minimal damage.  The others could easily be killed by such a blow.

*meh* I still think we're going to find that Glyph has been preparing himself or something and he'll simply come in to save the day.

...Beyond that I still hope to see Crest with a shield sometime in the future.

I'm pretty sure Grant said that they never used the sword, and thus he would probably be unaware that it is useless without its partner. On the other hand, there is no concrete evidence presented that the sword only works with its partner. We are all assuming that the staff/stick is magical, which may not be the case.

I wonder about Glyph's visor (we know he can see with it through people clothes which may be just a pervert option) if it has more advanced purpose, maybe he would notice with it that the stick is mechanical and will see it's weak points and with proper instructions Bern could make it useless when hit in some joint spots...

When the manipulative, deranged psycho who is your enemy tells you it's a good plan, scrapping it seems like a good idea to me.

Besides, the stick can come from above and the front as well as attack from the sides, it would have taken many "pillars" to be effective. Even Crest, Maytag, and Suspira would not have been enough.

Question though, we've seen Suspira's dress move on its own. (It takes some of her essence to do this) Does that count as sorcery? If not, Suspira CAN use it to disable the "power staff" if at least temporarily, which MIGHT just give Bern the ability to close in and take that smug smirk of Danzig's face. I can't blame her for being unable to be a "pillar." Her endurance and stamina is very low. She just never could take a hit. In addition, we STILL don't know what Melter did to her.

That's for Glyph to know and you to find out!  ;)

It's good that Glyph came back. Methinks this turn will cement him as an actual member of the party rather then just dead-weight-butler-pervert-guy. I thought maybe that would happen but I wasn't sure.
