Previous LIAB 99a Next LIAB 101 [edit]

Panel 1

Banks of hazy grey smoke are filling the Jetstone throne room's ceiling. King Slately and three Jetstone Infantry units run up the stairs to his throne, one of whom remains at the foot of the stairs and faces back to guard the rear. There is a torn doll in the recesses of a passage.[edit]
No text. [edit]

Panel 2

Smoke billows around the throne as King Slately sits on it, holding his temple with his right hand as he tries to contact Charlie via Thinkamancy. Two Jetstone Infantry stand on either side of his throne and look around with concern.[edit]
Slately: Charlescomm...

Panel 3

Slately lowers his arm and screams angrily towards the ceiling. His expression is a combination of anger and desperation.[edit]
Slately: Charlie! Answer me, now!
I am ready!
I sit upon the throne!

Panel 4

A thinkagram of a cross legged Archon appears before Slately, she speaks with polite detachment. One of the Jetstone Infantry reacts in surprise.[edit]
Charlie's Archon: Charlie is monitoring the situation, Your Majesty, and your call is important to us.
Please hold.

Panel 5

Slately leans forward on his throne in shocked surprise, the thinkagram of the Archon disappears in a poof. The Jetstone Infantrywoman remains at attention, unsurprised and giving Slately a sideways look.[edit]

Slately: Why-


Panel 6

The angle of the scene shows the hall from the foot of the stairs: Slately slowches on his throne, dejected, as it fills with more and more smoke. The two infantrymen continue to gaze out at the empty throne room.[edit]
No text. [edit]

Panel 7

Parson, Jack and Antium talk in the Jetsone portal room, illuminated by the portal's blue light. There are uncroaked infantry in the background.[edit]

Parson Gotti: They set their own capital on fire?

Antium: I would say it was our doing.

Jack Snipe: Lady Sylvia, in the Atrium, with the dwagons.

Panel 8

Parson looks down at Antium, who holds up a hand as he answers a question, and Jack, who loops up at Parson guiltily. There is a row of uncroaked infantry lining the wall and looking forward.[edit]

Parson Gotti: I didn't order that.
Why would she do that?

Antium: To smoke out the hidden enemy units in the garrison. Or perhaps to counter an enemy rush.

Jack Snipe: Or to see the pretty flames?

Panel 9

Parson starts pacing and gesturing as he talks, while Antium and Jack listen. The uncroaked infantry gaze on.[edit]

Parson Gotti: Arright then.
Difficulty Level: Shit's On Fire.
When a city is burning, you either put it out or you get out, before it reaches inferno level.
And if it's uncontrolled, then you can't put it out, unless you control the city.

Jack Snipe: Mm.

Panel 10

Parson turns back to Antium and Jack, and hold up a thumb to gesture at himself. Jack folds in an arm and gestures with the other, Antium is holding up a hand ready to say something. The portal is in the background and glowing strongly, with a vertical wave shaped distortion.[edit]

Jack Snipe: "Get out" is no option.
It's not our turn.
Nothing here has any move.

Parson Gotti: Well. It's an option for you and me.
We can go right back through that portal if we have to.

Panel 11

Parson, Antium and Jack all turn to look at the portal, which flickers out with a vertical line in the shape of a flatlining EKG. They're all briefly speechless.[edit]
SFX: WASS [edit]

Panel 12

Devoid of the portal's pale blue backlight, Parson looks at the empty portal and deadpans. Antium frowns in concern and looks up at Parson. Jack looks over his shoulder at Parson with a slight frown.[edit]
Parson Gotti: "Coss it's a trap." [edit]
