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?
[edit]

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.
[edit]

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?
[edit]

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...?
[edit]

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?
[edit]

Panel 7

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

Parson Gotti: In realtime.

Stanley the Tool: Inconceivable![2]

Parson Gotti: *SNRK!*
[edit]

Panel 8

Parson laughs hysterically.[edit]

Parson Gotti: Woohoohoohahah!

Stanley the Tool: What!!
[edit]

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.

Sound: THUB THUB THUB THUB

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

Stanley the Tool: You're very strange.
[edit]

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]
Sound: THUB THUB THUB THUB SCREEECH [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.
[edit]

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.
[edit]

Notes

  1. ^ Specifically, Stanley sounds like Vizzini from The Princess Bride.
  2. ^ Stanley unwittingly quotes what may be Vizzini's best-known line, much to Parson's amusement.
