I hope you don’t mind me posting a day early. Have a great Thanksgiving week to my American (US) readers, and have a great week to everyone else too. See you Monday.
Now *that* looks like it was very satisfying.
Though, seriously, whose idea was it to put the Banestone on an easily removed necklace and not, say, a collar or armband or bracelet or something?
Colindra Montaine to be exact.
Then we might have Cole’s fashion sense to thank for saving the world.
Well that’s a good start to rekindle witht the Saint Louis Royal family
So the Knight in Shining armor get’s saved by the maid in Firebreathing Dragon form.
I wonder if all the “Knight in shining armor saves maid from firebreathing Dragon” were already used up in the last 5000 Year.
Now the question is….was that Kyri in dragon form, or Cole in dragon form? Kyri had the stone, but Cole was awake and both know how to use it.
Kyri’s dragon looks different. Green and no horns.
DK – I think you’re right. But we’ll see how that relationship plays out.
Christopher – Yes! I was going for a twist of that trope.
Jonathan B – Great question. It will become clear on the next page.
I hadn’t noticed before this page but Simon still has pens! Good ‘ole 21’st century tech.
Now that you mention it, those pens could be weapons in the hands of someone with super-strength.
Assuming, of course, that Simon’s invulnerability extends to the pens. Though given what Colindra’s dress has stood up to, it likely would…
Well, they do say the pen is mightier than the sword. In this case it might even be literal.

Firstly, and I know it’s been said a million times already, this is truly an amazing and original world you have here Tony! Keep up the good work (preferably indefinitely, please?). Heck, I’d even go so far as to file it under “cannot parody/even reference without the author’s permission,” and that’s definitely a first for something I’ve read/seen.
Second, I figured that I would post my theory for the inevitable third battle at the Eternity Spire that seems to be implied here.
When the dark matter lattice was shattered, it caused the Eternity Spire’s computer to Kernel Panic (UNIX equivalent of the BSoD, though I seriously doubt that anything capable of altering reality would be running Windows, so it must be either UNIX or a custom OS).
GATES therefore has to re-boot the entire SPIRE before he can use it, which gives the protagonists time to catch up after he inexplicably looses them somehow.
Well, either that or the SPIRE automatically reboots…. I can hope though, right?
@Neomoricus Also, I’m fairly certain that the invulnerability would indeed extend to what the Banestone rocker had on their immediate person. If it does indeed use a sort of field of light and space to generate it (as has been implied), then it would make sense for it to extend to clothing and handheld objects. Though obviously this does not extend to damage from [i]inside[/i] the invulnerability field, as proven when the past Banestone rockers used the Dragonstone. Though Thunderhead being able to break Cole’s shoe waaaaay back in Issue 1 would sort of undermine this theory….
Though a) this is a webcomic, who cares how it works? and b) Tony himself has said in the past that we sometimes tend to think the overstone powers through more than he himself does (though I’d guess that this has lessened in the past few years as he develops the Endstone world).
Yeah, I’d better stop typing now before his comment reaches novel-size.
End of Line

Thanks for “de-lurking” DarthNSupreme. You have some great ideas as to where the plot is heading. We’ll see how it plays out.
Arrgh I can’t believe I’m all caught up! No more instant gratification for me :'( ah well hood things come to those who wait!
