Chapter 10: Page 14 – Incoming Blasts

Posted by / in Comic / 29 comments

Let’s see, what else is new along with this page…

We got a couple new reviews recently, as well as an interview I did. The Discord chatroom server is still up and available for people who want to chat with me and other readers.  The Forums still exist for people who prefer to communicate not in real-time (as does the lovely comment section below).

Hmm, what else… that’ll do for now. I have to get in to work. I have a mighty review article to finish!

  • Unwary

    “Jane, that was the right move, but please… half a seconds more warning and I could have turned around and looked dramatically away from the explosion, up out of the page.”
    “Tenzin, I think you’re concussed.”

    • Jane doesn’t understand the importance of looking awesome for the camera. XD

      • Unwary

        What’s the point of building AI that smart then? Speed, accuracy, all those are easy. Predictive algorithm… then you get a little harder. But we conquered them, in our quest to finally render, in cold calculation, the impossible.
        We taught them war, and now we must teach them… Style.

          Great, now I have a mental image of an OGRE cybertank with pimped out rims, oversized stereo, and fuzzy dice cruising the neighborhood.
          This is horrible.
          ;-)

          • Unwary

            I said Style, not Fashion. What kind of a maniac do you take me for?

          • Matt [in Middletown]

            Our kind.
            :-)

            /me subsides, muttering about how stating the obvious shouldn’t be such an effective defence.

  • Gart Shwey

    “Are you insane?”
    Yes. And very, very angry.

  • Honza Prchal

    http://www.badgehistory.com/files/PDC_Overview.pdf … perforating depth control, projectile destructive concussors …
    Was izt PDC?

    • Heh, you’ll see very very shortly. I shan’t ruin the surprise XD

      • Matt [in Middletown]

        Probably Death Clown, launches an evil Bozo the clown at the target for 2d6 psyche damage

    • Gart Shwey

      Parachute-Deployed Cats

      • Obviously. Not even deathbots can resist kitties.

      • Honza Prchal

        Of course! How could I have missed that? I am such a fool.
        My daughter’s home invasion escape plan has long involved throwing a cat at the assailant’s face if the opportunity presents itself. If the situation is desperate enough, it isn’t a bad plan.

  • Matt [in Middletown]

    “why aren’t we running away?”
    Because we can’t.
    They’re faster, and between us and the highly obvious car.

  • Kaiden
    • Fyrebrand

      Miracle of sound. Awesome.

  • Kaiden

    Portable Deathbot Countermeasures

    Parsley, Dill, and Cilantro. Tenzin is gonna grill up some Deathbots.

  • Matt [in Middletown]

    “Tenzin! Use your Burning Buddha Palm attack!” -Suddenly, they are in a sidescrolling brawler fighting game

    • We still do need to code one of those.

      • Matt [in Middletown]

        For some reason, the music from Final Fight popped to mind.
        (..showing my age there..)

  • Ian Brown

    not much point in trying to run when they have rockets and mlrs.

    • Kaiden

      To the contrary. A moving target is harder to hit, as long as he’s not running in a straight line.

      • Fyrebrand

        If only Rickon learned that.

        • NickDA

          to soon… to soon ;(

          • Fyrebrand

            He watches over the north now.

  • The answer to your questions, Jane, are: “Yes” and “Because I’m insane”.
