Rikard December 25, 2019 at 3:42 am 3 years ago Rule number X about magic geegaws and doohickeys: Use it or lose it. Meran December 25, 2019 at 3:58 am 3 years ago ROTFLMAO Aitana, you are in a Spacetrawler comic; going back to books and games, a nice quiet life, is ~gone, honey chile! Garth Hill December 25, 2019 at 1:12 pm 3 years ago by now she can talk to the onboard Coyote — and really what better life is there after that? she’s got her own pack! Scorpinac December 25, 2019 at 4:43 am 3 years ago And what books does she read exactly? Cause I don’t think I’m familiar with them. Also, Merry Christmas. Muzhik December 25, 2019 at 9:28 am 3 years ago I think I now have a new tagline; and if I can find a way to legally put her statement on a t-shirt … SHA-ZAYAM! (to quote Gomer Pyle…) Mel_Vixen December 25, 2019 at 7:53 pm 3 years ago Worse, the synth can create other stuff too like clothes and gadgets … maybe she DOES create a magic (advanced technology) wand. Muzhik December 25, 2019 at 9:56 am 3 years ago Oh, crud… It just struck me … “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” She has now been transported “magically” to a world of danger, with talking coyotes, where she can give a command with a magic word (“FOOD SYNTH, give me a bowl of Sugar-Coated Chocolate Bombs with cow milk!” or “MEDIBOT! Fix my glasses!”) and she is tasked with fighting off an invasion of evil puppy-dog people and freeing the King and Queen! (I notice Ailita’s glasses aren’t cracked anymore.) FORESOOTH! Is this … Could it possibly be … Foreshadowing? Naaa… Gregg Eshelman December 30, 2019 at 6:56 am 3 years ago “MEDIBOT! Fix my eyes so I don’t need glasses!” Pete Rogan December 25, 2019 at 6:25 pm 3 years ago Hm. It would seem Strider has just put his hand on the shards of Narsil for the first time. Adventure and rectitude will follow. Bet on it. Owen Smith December 25, 2019 at 7:39 pm 3 years ago Narsil has already been re-forged, that’s her glasses. TB December 25, 2019 at 8:27 pm 3 years ago There’s a guy who’s seen some hard times. It took him one panel to eat three chicken legs. Taking bets on how long it will take for Aitana to end up as Apex Speaker. ronald December 26, 2019 at 1:18 am 3 years ago She offers kind of the same line of thinking that prompted her parents to take the Puppy People’s offer in the first place so it’s not from books alone. 🙂 (of course, it might be the Puppy People would not have accepted “no, thanks” as a viable response, anyway…) Leave a Reply to Gregg Eshelman Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
