Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Anybody want to speculate on whether he'd actually have let either one live if they'd gone along? He might even have paid them before displosing of them... Also, it pleases me far too much that 0.31578947368421052631578947368421 is in fact the value of 18 over 57. Such a simple thing, yet far too of...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I like the image of a future society in which a lowered wrist is recognized as a sign of agression,a nd a raised wrist is friendly or welcome, like shaking hands today (the intent of which was to show yourself to be unarmed). I'm amused by the way Mensk keeps referring to them "murdering" his relati...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

About the "b" - with some exception from Wisper's side , they tend to be on morality side. Meh... Morality is a two-way street. OK, so Sarah's lost control of the gravity net. I wonder what other entertaining systems she can play with. Selective venting the atmosphere, perhaps? :twisted: Dunno abou...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

At the end of page 396, Bob is put to sleep/rendered unconscious/something. That said, it's almost too bad if he *isn't* able to see this - walking and talking proof that the military has been lying to him and he's been kept in the dark about things on the station he controls - about the woman he re...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Love the new page, both using the gravity plating as a disabling technique and the artistic rendering of what happens to the hapless guard. The fire tones on the room (and the shadow he casts against the ceiling) are great as well. Minor nitpick though: 9.8 m/(s^2), not 9.8G. The latter would be... ...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

I'm trying to remember if we've ever seen marines bleed before. I recall the JAK that slipped aboard on Kari's fighter had orange "blood" (circulatory fluid of some sort, at least). The dead marines found on the theatre ship were JAKs, but I don't remember if we saw blood from them or not. This mari...

Nah, that first carbine was a perfect Chekhov's Gun (though I do wonder where the body went...)

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

There's the answer: Whisper let the guard take her biological arm so that the other (more powerful) one would be available to disarm the marine. Painful as that must be, it's probably the only thing that gives them a chance of winning this little fight. Of course, even if she and Kari subdue this en...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

And the plot thickens... Suddenly the Cirin Alliance does not look any better than the republic. I am guessing Novosi is going to get in the way again, and where is Whisper when you need her, I am sure she can hack any system she wants to :D. That was largely my thought too. We've already seen evid...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

Bear in mind that an efficient solar panel *would* be pitch black, or as close as they could get. Light reflecting off a panel is energy wasted. Not to say those are solar panels, but it would be logical for them to have a very low albedo. So awesome to see the start of the new chapter, and twice a ...
