Panel 2

[edit]

(Eyebook) LordHamster: So is that your offer? Full reimbursement for our lost cities and troops if we let her go?

(Eyebook) CharlsNChrg: That's an offer. How much is it, exactly?

(Eyebook) LordHamster: Bracer says $221,540 if we get our remaining prisoners back.

(Eyebook) CharlsNChrg: I can't make deals for Faq, but I'll make sure she lets your people go.

(Eyebook) LordHamster: And the figure doesn't bother you.

(Eyebook) CharlsNChrg: It's steep, but I can pay it.

(Eyebook) LordHamster: Okay, "my people" are saying nfw.

(Eyebook) LordHamster: And I'm thinking no, too. Just because this is something you want. :P

(Eyebook) CharlsNChrg: *sigh*

(Eyebook) CharlsNChrg: Parson... I want her for reasons that don't have anything to do with you.

(Eyebook) CharlsNChrg: If that offer doesn't interest you, then name something that does.

(Eyebook) LordHamster: How bout you give you up the calculations I owe you[1]? All of them.

(Eyebook) CharlsNChrg: Done.

(Eyebook) LordHamster: And tell me what Jojo's spell[2] does.

(Eyebook) CharlsNChrg: I already have. It sends you home.

(Eyebook) LordHamster: No, I want a full technical explanation.

(Eyebook) LordHamster: Who created it, why, and what are its specifications? It's "underpinnings."

(Eyebook) CharlsNChrg: Done. What else?

(Eyebook) LordHamster: Get us our Archon prisoner back from Jetstone.

(Eyebook) CharlsNChrg: I said I can't make deals for other sides. Jetstone won't even talk to me. Name something else.

(Eyebook) LordHamster: Tell me why you want the Queen so bad.

(Eyebook) LordHamster: I mean, you're not even saying "take her prisoner and hand her over," you still want her to be running her side. Why?

(Eyebook) CharlsNChrg: To fulfill another contractual obligation that doesn't concern you.

(Eyebook) LordHamster: It does concern me. Faq is an enemy side.

(Eyebook) LordHamster: I mean, the alternative is we eliminate Faq this turn and make up our losses by razing their cities. Right?

(Eyebook) LordHamster: That sounds a lot more strategically solid, actually.

Panel 3

[edit]

(Eyebook) CharlsNChrg: Let me tell you why it's not.

(Eyebook) CharlsNChrg: I've got a bunch of carrots to offer you. But you're not interested. So fine, let's talk about sticks.

(Eyebook) CharlsNChrg: Your Overlord is alone in the field right now. In the air.

(Eyebook) CharlsNChrg: How's your air power looking these days?

(Eyebook) LordHamster: He can get home.

(Eyebook) CharlsNChrg: Are you ready to bet your side on that?

(Eyebook) CharlsNChrg: Who are you talking to right now?

(Eyebook) CharlsNChrg: Who am I? What do I do for a living?

(Eyebook) LordHamster: lookout.jpg[3]

(Eyebook) LordHamster: Charlie, if you really thought you could kill Stanley, you'd just do it. You would end my side. Win.

(Eyebook) LordHamster: You wouldn't be pitching me a deal at all, let alone this "name your own price at Priceline" crap.

(Eyebook) CharlsNChrg: All you can infer from that is that I have higher priorities than my war with you.

(Eyebook) CharlsNChrg: But if you mess those up for me, then you'll jump to the top of my list.

(Eyebook) CharlsNChrg: You don't ever want to be at the top of my list, Parson.

(Eyebook) CharlsNChrg: If you make peace with me, then Stanley can go home. Or to Spacerock, or wherever else he feels like.

(Eyebook) CharlsNChrg: If not? Then I promise he will die, Gobwin Knob will fall, and I will take the Arkenhammer.
