Is he retreating? Already?
Well, at least we will get to see how he made the toadmen…
Am I right? He did create the toads, didnt he?
In fact, like Tony just said, his toads are not real toads, but rather stonecrafted ones, using his Toadstone. If you follow the story since the beginning, you’ll see that the Toadstone has played a large role during Jon’s “Time Killer” days.
Additionally, we’ve learned from the “Jon & Kyri & Herrik VS Cole” fight that stonecraft drains a lot more of energy that one may think. Being an experienced stoner, Jon will not risk himself if he knows he’s out of juice, and after his fight against Kyri he’s in no condition to create another army.
Finally, consider that the power of Kyri’s Endstone allows her to dissipate any stonecraft power, even that of the mighty Banestone, Jon knows he can’t fight her without his toads.
That said, it leads me to one speculation about how the Toadstone works. While ceating the toads is still stonecraft, thus can be canceled by the Endstone, i think the toads themselves, once created, are fully alive and sentient beings. That must be why Kyri could never repel them with the Endstone. Not in that forest battle, neither in the Second Pillar battle. (The first being against Drakhyl Dragonstone).
Exactly right, Darth Killer. The Endstone can disrupt the creation of the toad-men, but once they are made, they cannot be undone. It takes no power to maintain the toad-men.
However, the dragon can be disrupted by the Endstone since the stoner rocking the dragon-stone must use power to maintain the dragon form.
Jon was looking for escape the minute Kyri was revived. 🙂
As far as the toads go, yes, Jon did create them. As for how he made the toadmen… he used the toad-stone. The process will be revealed towards the end of this issue. And come to think of it, I probably should have drawn some dead toads on the ground. Oh well, I might put some in later. It’s sometimes difficult getting things perfect when grinding out pages week after week over several years. 🙂
Very smart of John, this battle was always even odds at best. If Kari could have gotten close enough to him before he made enough Toads, she wins.
If Kari gets close to the dragon, she wins.
I’m surprised he got away this easy. Kari must be thinking about her daughter instead of the battle. Given how John finally gets the Endstone, that was clearly a mistake.
Yes. I think Kyri is tied down to keeping Colindra safe, but being able to fly helps Jon stay out of range of the Endstone so there’s not much Kyri can do.
The battle did go quickly but this scene has been going on a little too long so I thought it best to wrap it up. There are some epic battles planned for the climax so stay tuned. 🙂
