Previous LIAB Text 31 Next LIAB 42 [edit]


Panel 1

A close view from the front and slightly above Prince Tramennis standing in a spotlight. He smiles in a disarming manner as rainbow lights play across his armor.[edit]

Prince Tramennis: I wasn't actually calling to "do business," Charlie.

Prince Tramennis: All else aside, we couldn't afford you at the moment.
[edit]

Panel 2

Charlie, represented by a multicolored presentation of his name,[1] floats against a black background.[edit]

Charlie: Oh now!

Charlie: My arrangements are always personalized to the client's needs, on a case-by-case basis.

Charlie: You'd be surprised how much flexibility I'd be willing to show, to win back a lost customer like Jetstone.

Charlie: Besides, you've already earned 5000 Schmuckers in credit this turn.
[edit]

Panel 3

An amused Prince Tramennis with one eyebrow raised smirks at the icon image of Charlie, which has assumed the form of a stylized apple in rainbow stripes.[2][edit]

Prince Tramennis: Have we.

Charlie: Oh yes. I've decided to offer a bounty on each Decrypted Archon.

Charlie: 5000 for each one you destroy.

Charlie: And let's say...a 25k bonus if you can capture at least one and return it to me breathing.
[edit]

Panel 4

Prince Tramennis scratches his chin thoughtfully as Charlie's icon becomes a smiley-face made of rainbow dots.[3][edit]

Prince Tramennis: Interesting

Charlie: Yes, I thought you'd be intrigued, Highness.
[edit]

Panel 5

Tramennis narrows his eyes, tilts his head, and gestures expansively with one hand as his epaulets begin to assume multicolored hues.[edit]

Prince Tramennis: No.

Prince Tramennis: Interesting that you'd say "it."

Prince Tramennis: So you are of the opinion of the opinion that Decrypted are more Uncroaked than alive?
[edit]

Panel 6

A side view of Tramennis, now simply serious, as he stares up at Charlie's icon, which has assumed the form of a rainbow-colored disco ball. Tramennis's epaulets have shifted completely to rainbow hues.[edit]

Charlie: I'm... Hm.

Prince Tramennis: Because Queen Jillian told me she intends to turn Ansom.

Prince Tramennis: And if that is possible, then it changes things.

Prince Tramennis: Wouldn't you say?
[edit]

Panel 7

Charlie has now shifted to the form of a pink bear, with a white chest and muzzle; his nose is shaped like a heart, and his arms are crossed over the stylized rainbow on his chest.[4] Tramennis, seen from behind, is still looking up at Charlie.[edit]

Charlie: I'd say...answering that question definitively would be one benefit of having at least one of my former units returned to me.

Charlie: So please do try to collect the full bounty.

Charlie: It, um, would be enough to designate you heir, you know.

Prince Tramennis: Yes, I can multiply, thank you.
[edit]

Panel 8

An annoyed Tramennis glares at Charlie, who now resembles a hand reaching out of a cloud with a rainbow in its grasp.[5] The Jetstone radish livery on Tramennis's armor begins to swirl into a new shape.[edit]

Charlie: I have prepared a suggested order of battle for you, which I'm offering at a discount...

Prince Tramennis: Right. So you don't know.

Prince Tramennis: I'll have to find out on my own.
[edit]

Panel 9

Tramennis's whole raiment is swirling into a new rainbow-colored form as he speaks to Charlie's icon, a cube-like object covered in a pastel checkerboard pattern, with a large question mark on the side facing Tramennis.[6][edit]

Charlie: How would you do that?

Prince Tramennis: Talk to Ossomer, to start.

Prince Tramennis: If it's possible to get my brothers back, I'd like that very much.
[edit]

Panel 10

Tramennis glares over the sunglasses that have appeared on his face at Charlie's new form, a stylized flower in rainbow colors. Tramennis's raiment has taken on the appearance of a rainbow-swirl shirt.[edit]

Charlie: Um, yes. I'd... really advise against parley, Highness. In the strongest possible terms.

Prince Tramennis: Oh, and why is that, Charlie? I'm actually quite losing patience here.

Charlie: Your Highness...
[edit]

Panel 11

Tramennis looks up at Charlie's color wheel icon.[edit]

Charlie: All right, you called to find out why I am in this fight.

Charlie: I don't like giving away valuable information, but you need this. Desperately.

Prince Tramennis: If you say so.
[edit]

Panel 12

Charlie, in the form of three overlapping circles in red, blue, and green[7], projects a white light containing a Thinkagram-style image of Parson Gotti holding an Eyebook.[edit]

Charlie: Here...

Charlie: See.

Charlie: You were not the only man promoted to Chief Warlord this turn, Prince Tramennis.
[edit]

Panel 13

The projected image of Parson glares over the open Eyebook at something unseen.[edit]

Charlie: Your new counterpart, Parson Gotti, Lord Hamster of Gobwin Knob.

Charlie: The more-than-perfect-warlord. He is the most dangerous being in Erfworld.
[edit]

Panel 14

Tramennis, now clad in a tie-dye t-shirt and sunglasses,[8] rubs his chin thoughtfully as he examines the image of Parson in front of him.[edit]

Prince Tramennis: What, behind the potato[9]?

Charlie: I'll send you a dossier.
[edit]
