Poor Roarik. Doesn't know he's actually got heartburn.
DOWN WITH ARCH!
Did...did they just steal each other's opinions in the space of a few seconds?
I feel like this is an episode of "Rabbit season! Duck season!"
Oh look, it's Syncophant Central.
Nooo! Come back, Sir Boots!
I don't think that word means what you think it means.
Nah, you're on ferrying duty as far as I'm concerned. If that.
Zach starts us off with a bad level.
You want a mage-killer, Ben? THIS is a mage-killer!
Karina rescue-drops Cia into enemy territory and gets out of the way...except that asshole has a longbow. And someone has seen fit to get rid of our only Delphi Shield, for the time being.
Oh well, she can take it.
Kevin, too, wishes to become a mage-killer.
Cia sees Zach's shitty level and one-ups him.
Oddly enough, the longbow archer went for him instead of Karina.
I was not expecting to have to do this, Cia!
Well, they're important stats. You pass, for now.
Good. Give Cia more experience.
Much better, you two.
Yay! Inanna and some useless scrub that stole our energy ring in Shon Mode are back.
Good-bye, annoying longbow guy!
Just a reminder of Inanna's stats. Looking pretty damn good under Wan's tender care.
Strength! You need strength, you abomination!
Yeah, you've got the right idea!
Ok, sure. Best staffbot.
Inanna visits the only house on the map and meets the only woman in Solum that doesn't understand "Location, location, location".
I put you on a forest for a reason. The reason was not to get struck by lightn-...oh. Right. Ooops.
Not for you, there ain't. But I'll take the emblem weapons off of your hands!
No! Cia's first level was not a good example!
Risk it? Of course! What could go wrong?
I'll even top him off so there's absolutely no risk of him dying.
That is a very dodgy Anakin...with not much else.
Uh...I forgot to look at this guy's weapons...
NO RISK OF HIM DYING WHATSOEVER, NO SIRREE.
Speed is good.
ONLY speed is...not very good.
Yes, this was in the same turn. No, I did not RNG abuse. Yes, I am good at this game.
Zach even gets a nice level from his near-death experience on the next turn.
I risk it, and he hits. Nothing major happened afterwards.
Not sure I like these odds. But hey, I can chip the guy down while I get supports.
Zach chips a knight, and...ok.
"Nightmare fuel!" (Tamiko x Cia C support)
Zach's actually going to chip at Roarik, with Anakin's motivation and Tamiko's staves nearby, just in case.
Dude, you need some serious magic.
Ok, and ew.
Kelik-Anakin C support.
Zach finishes off Roarik and goes out with a whimper. Cia helped, otherwise I'd still be there probably.
We could have taken her prisoner or something, ya know. Turn her over to Alexia's military and pick her up once we were done. But Edgelord Supreme doesn't consider any alternatives.
On the other hand, Roarik's got his own load of WTF-baggage.
Say, it's Sameface McGee!
Voila! No more zeros. Only ones.
Why the hell would you have a gang of assassins under your employ if you can't give them orders?
...WHY THE HELL DID YOU NEED TO KILL THAT GUY? HE HAD A FAMILY!
Well...there have been some casualties. No one you'd know about.
Come with us, Sir Boots!
Anakin asking the tough questions.
Ooh, that's cold.
IT'S RENAULT! HI RENAULT! Llove what you did with your hair!
But Sir Boots could take you on, no problem.
Kelik sheds a single, manly tear.
SUDDENLY, VOICE ACTING!
Actually, only Kelik has a fire affinity. Anakin has...light?
Actually, it, uh, kind of is.
But it seems our merry band of heroes lives to fight another day. Hooray!
