Originally I had written this scene with Kyri placing the Endstone on a random zombie to see if the stone had any effect. As I drew the scene, Kyri grabbed the baby and did this. I’m not sure if Kyri’s actions are right, but it seems authentic to the character.
It’s a gray area and I’ll let you decide.
Still having idiom trouble, I see…(lol)
Kyri rolled a 1 on her Diplomacy, it seems.
Yes she did, LOL. I think her base diplomacy rating is very low (hahaha). Jon is more the diplomat of the group. Kyri is gruff and to the point, both verbally and physically.
She’s proven to be able to apply some tough diplomacy occasionnaly, like when fighting off Cole as Banestone she was using feelings and lessons to soften her daughter. It failed, but it was an attempt. Here, she’s just bashing the problem. I say she rolled 100 in diplomacy, due to the complications she just created with the villagers…
Good point as always. 🙂
Rolling 100 on Diplomacy would require some ungodly modifiers, though. XD
Not really, on a 1-100 rolling dice as they are used in roleplay games, 100 is the worse critical failure score you can get (1 being the best critical success) 😉
Ah, I figured this out. We’re using different frames of reference. XD I’m using the d20 system (D&D 3rd edition and onwards), where a 1 is a critical failure and a 20 is a critical success.
Oh, lovely, Animate Dead has a duration of “Instantaneous.” Looks like Thunderhead should start learning to tolerate the Zombies’ existence, because they’re going to be around for awhile.
This is starting to look less like the animated past-dead, and more like a failed resurrection attempt. Or more likely, the reduced-effectiveness AoE side-effect of whatever it did to its INTENDED target(s).
Hmm, thought occurs. The Gravestone only temporarily restores the mind to a corpse, if these “Zombies” are indeed alive, would the brain be able to grab the “emulated” mind and maintain it? (Assuming it has any effect on them at all.) If that works, we may have discovered the Stoneverse equivalent of a “Raise Dead” spell. I’m sure Pablo and Lindy would be happy to see one another again.
…and another idle thought occurs: Does the Endstone disrupt Stonecraft itself, or just the energy used by Stonecraft? The end result would be the same, but now this is going to bother me for a few days.
End of Line
How would have you stonecraft disrupted by the Endstone, if not via stonecraft energy disruption ?
I love how Kyri jumps to conclusions, too. The food giving it energy, as if it were stonecraft, really ? It’s not like you’ve fought toadmen before, milady…
I can think of any number of things: force some kind of hereunto unmentioned “safety” setting, feed garbage data into the “control buffer” (for lack of a better description) of other Overstones, of even just messing with their targeting.
Though now that I think about it, it worked fine on Banestone energy blasts and the Megarek-boosted Toadstone aura, so yeah, energy disruption.
I have GOT to stop reading webcomics when sleepy.
Memo to self, “Do not click on a new Endstone comic e-mail’s link while sipping a drink as having to clean the screen after a spit take is a pain.”
That’s the reaction I’m looking for. 🙂
