What is Parson HOLDING in that Picture?!

Postby haviel » Wed Mar 14, 2012 6:42 pm

Why is no one talking about this? I can't even tell what it is! I don't remember ever seeing that thing or having it mentioned. Any guesses what it is?

Spoiler: show
Is this the Fourth Arkentool? Has Rob revealed it at last? Does Parson weild... The Arkenbong?

:D

I was thinking that same thing exactly when I saw the picture..! It does tie in nicely with Janis' comment about him being a hippiemancer. Flower power and all. Peace on Erf Parson :D D

I think you just might be right. If so, way 'grats on the spot - I saw he was holding something but didn't think about it DOH.

Can't be a 'Tool. It's not CGI-rendered. All 'Tools are rendered, not drawn.

It looks to me like he's holding a hookah upside-down. Take note of the little thingy-on-a-hose in his right hand. He also has a rather odd expression on his face, so maybe he's used it already?

Could be a hookah, but I would expect to see the tubes..

Could also be a kind of staff, trumpet, or club. Or any combo of them.

It's a beer gun.

Attach the spray component of a spray bottle to a short hose, attache the hose to a beer bong. Spray people with beer. At their preference = in the mouth. Or at your preference = on their tits.
I don't talk on forums much, because I'll be a dick ;)

Ninja-ed.

Being a kickstarter contributor, I was going to drop a hint as to what that was, but not spell it out to not interfere with Rob's plans of dragging out the suspense but hey you did that for me so kudos.

That wallpaper is incomplete anyway.
The whole point of this is lost if you keep it a secret.

An accurate point, I didn't even think about that when I was putting that up.
I've got to stop posting things before I've woken up completely, now I've wrecked it. :oops:

Well, if you zoom in on the public image, you can definitely read 'booze'. Once you've read that, the rest flows naturally.

If you look at the picture closely, you can see it's a bong... which "flows naturally".

I thought it was a deliberate pun. I won't overestimate your abilities again :)

Oh wow. I feel like Harry vis a vis Dumbledore's supposed message, after the Azkaban prison break in Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality.

I think the real question is: Is that thing a magic item like the blaster that Ossomer had or the one Slately has, or is that a magic item like Sizemore has. Nothing surprising about the first case. Parson doesn't like killing and besides capturing units is a good option often. The only surprising thing is this didn't happen earlier. If its the second: PARSON IS A HIPPIEMANCER FOR REALZ!!! Since the second option gives a character I like cool powers I assume it must be the second choice. PARSON IS A HIPPIEMANCER FOR REALZ!!!
