Previous TBFGK 28 Next TBFGK 30 [edit]

Panel 1

A line of gobwins stand at attention.[edit]

Stanley the Tool: The Second Gobwin Infantry. Very fierce.

Big bonuses for tunnel fighting.

Parson Gotti: Also very cute.

Stanley the Tool: Stop saying that.

Parson Gotti: Hee!

Stanley the Tool: What?

Panel 2

Parson is striking a pose with one arm extended and the other bent at the elbow and raised. Stanley stares at him, looking bemused.[edit]
Parson Gotti: Nothing, you just sounded like whatsisname from Princess Bride.[1] "Stop saying that!" [edit]

Panel 3

Stanley marches determinedly between lines of his infantry units, waving a hand at Parson, who is behind him, still partially striking the pose.[edit]

Stanley the Tool: Hamster, get on track.

This is serious.

Parson Gotti: Arright, sorry.

It's a little difficult for me.

Panel 4

Parson is grinning and shrugging. Stanley is in front of him, facing away from him and looking irritated.[edit]

Parson Gotti: I mean you actually have war in turns.

And nobody fights at night?

Everything's so polite and ...precious.

Stanley the Tool: Why, how do you do it?

Panel 5

Stanley leads Parson past a large formation of uncroaked units. Stanley's posture suggests a disciplined marching step; Parson's is more relaxed.[edit]

Parson Gotti: Well, I do it this way in games a lot.

But on Earth, our wars are realtime.

Stanley the Tool: And "realtime" would mean...?

Panel 6

Stanley waves his arms and shouts at Parson.[edit]

Parson Gotti: It's everyone's turn, all at once. All the time. Day and night.

Stanley the Tool: What? When do you make plans?

When do your units heal and disband?

Panel 7

Stanley throws up his hands and cries out.[edit]

Parson Gotti: In realtime.

Stanley the Tool: Inconceivable![2]

Parson Gotti: *SNRK!*

Panel 8

Parson laughs hysterically.[edit]

Parson Gotti: Woohoohoohahah!

Stanley the Tool: What!!

Panel 9

Parson is seen from the chest down, one hand on his belly. Stanley stares at him with an uncertain expression.[edit]

Parson Gotti: Nothing. That was funny. For... Oh, man. For reasons I'd find hard to explain, Your Toolship.


Parson Gotti: Am I allowed to laugh when I feel like it?

Stanley the Tool: You're very strange.

Panel 10

A view from overhead showing a multitude of units lined up in neat squares. Stanley and Parson are just visible in the path between the formations. Something is kicking up the dirt on the path.[edit]

Panel 11

Bogroll is standing and saluting.[edit]

Bogroll: My Lords!

I am reporting as Lackey retainer to Lord Hamster, by the order of my Lady Firebaugh.

Panel 12

The same overhead view of the review formations from two panels back. Now, Stanley, Parson, and Bogroll are standing in the path between the formations.[edit]
Sound: *wink* *blink* *blink* [edit]

Panel 13

Stanley points over his shoulder at Bogroll, who is still standing and saluting in the background.[edit]

Stanley the Tool: Uh yeah, Hamster, go ahead and indulge your weird sense of humor.

It's got nothing on Wanda's.
