If You Say It…

The alternate title for today’s strip would be : The Author is A Sadist to Her Cast

And they may not be the only ones who were thrown off the boat. You never know. Or at least hope Wiglaf doesn’t notice or he’ll be required to make a detour and save them.

At that point Mordred just may hit his own limit and do something drastic. Maybe. If he can pull up the energy to do so. He’s still kinda’ apathetic about the entire thing and he’s in water that’s pretty darn cold.

Heh.

I could see Wiglaf trying to save the whole crew if they had all fallen off. And silly Mordred shouldn’t be complaing about how cold it is. it’s his fault they were on the ship to begin with.

Mordred looks kind of funny wet.

Now you see, that would be my luck. And if I were Mordred, I’d hit Wiglaf over the head for the jinxing he seems to love doing at the moment.

At least there are no sharks…right? Maybe? I wonder if they are gonna hit that iceberg…

I’ma sadist to my characters too. >> It’s to fun…being nice to your characters isn’t that fun. :)

What’s Mordred complaining about? He wanted to ride on a boat. Is he only now discovering its drawbacks?

That iceberg marks the latest in a string of bad-luck obstacles for them.

How does Wiglaf swim while wearing chainmail?

You know…now that I think of it…I would like to know that as well. 0_0

Make me the third person who’s wondering. Literally, my first thought was “how the FRACK is he not being dragged down by the weight of that chainmail AND haul Mordred around at the very same time? o.O”
I guess it’s that super strength?

Super Strength would be the winner. :D

Hurrah! Wiglaf is awesome.

Well, not to contradict anyone on the chain mail thing, but alot of divers now adays do actually swim in chain mail to guard aginst shark attacks i dont know if Wiglaf’s would be heavier than that.
Would it?

1. Divers who are wearing chainmaille are often “walking” divers, not “swimming” divers.
2. “Swimming” divers who wear chainmaille also use a BCD (buoyancy control device– usually in the form of a vest that contains bladders to be filled with air at the diver’s press of a button) that makes room for EXTRA air above and beyond that required to balance out the weights regular divers wear.
3. While divers will wear a steel link maille, their links are both smaller and lighter than the ones in Wiglaf’s shirt, so an entire suit of diver’s maille effectively weighs what his shirt does. That’s not counting the way divers’ maille is sometimes sealed against taking on water, which Wiglaf’s shirt is likely not.
4. Wiglaf is not wearing any sort of BCD, so his buoyancy is EXTREMELY negative, nowhere near the neutral buoyancy divers maintain.

*Snerk* How am I totally not surprised that Murphy’s law is kicking in on those two… Hehehe…

If their run of luck continues, they will:
1. Run into a flock of territorial penguins roosting on the iceberg, who will promptly set to pecking them.
2. Having managed to calve a tiny piece off of the iceberg to get away from the marauding penguins, they will quickly realize the thing is melting and shrinking.
3. Manage to swim from the miniscule remnants of their iceraft either to the Falkland Islands or to contested portions of Tierra del Fuego.
4. Having escaped a land war, they will begin hiking through the Pampas grasslands, Andes mountains (possibly across that massive icefield), and rainforest, wherein they will meet the cousins of their suburban cannibal friends.
5. Finally stagger to the geoglyphs only to find Azrael waiting.

Of course, that’s just my prediction based on the current trend. Liliy, I swear if anyone can make things for this pair worse, it’s you. :D I look forward to seeing what you do to them.

No, no, you got a detail wrong: 5: Finally stagger to the geoglyphs, only to find Gawain and Hagen cursing about how they can’t find it and in a combative mood from frustration at trying to find it–because Azrael is long gone with the prize.

Wiglaf seems a good bit more cheerful now that that boat is out of the picture. :P

I think it’s funny he’s afraid of boats hitting iceburgs and rogue waves, but doesn’t see a problem swimming around in chain mail carrying Mordred with the same dangers…:sly: Ah, the wonders of irrational fears! :$

Reply

I don’t think Mordred can really complain too much on this one…

The boat WAS his idea after all.

Reply

I don’t see what the problem would be with an iceberg… they could ride it the rest of the way to their destination! Assuming it didn’t melt first… and could be moved at greater than glacial speeds… XD

Reply

I’m sure if anyone could move an iceburg at faster than glacial speeds, it would be Wiglaf. Maybe he could paddle them to shore using that super strength of his :)
