Watch it, Cain! He's trying to steal your spot as the team whiny guy! ;-)

That he may :D
rufiangel 30th Jan 2015, 10:55 PM edit delete reply
Hahaha, Cain objects to this - that's HIS role! :P As well as being the cleric, of course.

Hmm, let us hope the best... I wonder who his guide was...
rufiangel 30th Jan 2015, 10:56 PM edit delete reply
... a map? XD;;
mjkj 31st Jan 2015, 1:42 AM edit delete reply
Ah, sorry meant that bodyguard... :D
Lukkai 31st Jan 2015, 1:57 PM edit delete reply
And would another female forward fighter around them be a danger to Kylie's alpha b status? ;)

Also been meaning to mention but missed the right moment in previous comments: I don't know where in Germany you live, but if it's too far from the border for a quick choco-run, yet you go to things like the Anime-Marathon or the Connichi, I'd be able to fix you up with a delivery there. ;)
Gotta say though that Königslutter, where the Marathon is at again this year, has a confectioner in the old town with amazing drinking chocolate.

Well, I do live in Nuremberg which is too far to conveniently go to Switzerland just for shopping - especially without a car...

Thank you for the offer though I do not think I will be visiting either Anime-Marathon nor the Connichi.

... No. No, I do not want to believe that this cutiepie here is Madou... even after I've compared their faces side-by-side and they look TOO much alike... ;^;
rufiangel 30th Jan 2015, 10:57 PM edit delete reply
LOL! XD My main takeaway from your comment is that you compared them side-by-side! XD;;; That, and you think Renault's a cutiepie :D <3

They do look alike, huh? >_>a
prayformercy 30th Jan 2015, 10:59 PM edit delete reply
i did the same thing using 2 monitors, brought up page 175 and this one and compared them.
rufiangel 30th Jan 2015, 11:09 PM edit delete reply
Ridiculously, after you said this I pulled up 175 myself ('Which one was that one again?') and compared, too. XD;; Yeah, do I really draw this comic?*

*Don't listen to the elves, they just want more choco.

Dawwwww Renault. That IS a rough day. :c
rufiangel 30th Jan 2015, 10:58 PM edit delete reply
Yesh XD; and... meeting this group is probably the worst turn of the day so far. XD;;;;
prayformercy 30th Jan 2015, 11:50 PM edit delete reply
he gets to meet nemi for (possibly, as im still running on the madou theory) the first time, how can that be a bad thing?
Headgamer 30th Jan 2015, 9:33 PM edit delete reply
Madou... I didn't think of that, but the hair color is the same. I don't see the scruffy chin hair, but then I can't see his chin well. He is kind of acting like Madou minus the >:D \o/ :$ <3 action. It's not like we've ever seen Madou's face so who knows.

Either way I think he's a lier.
rufiangel 30th Jan 2015, 10:59 PM edit delete reply
To be fair, Abel also has purple hair. XD;; (Actually I could've sworn someone put up some crack theory before that Madou was Abel just because of that! XDD)

Meanwhile at the bottom of said cliff a whole family of Cocos now has silk bedding.
rufiangel 30th Jan 2015, 11:00 PM edit delete reply
Gosh, that's high-quality bedding right there XD

C'mon bud, mob training is illegal.:D

Renault, huh. That's a really cool name!
Aw, his face in that 5th panel! I love him already!
...Still getting Madou vibes!
(That alt, haha. He looks adorable in that last panel indeed!)
rufiangel 30th Jan 2015, 11:12 PM edit delete reply
Oh, is that what it's called in English! XD;

Yeah, that's pretty much it eh? Though we need to take his word for it that it wasn't intentional... :P

And yay, glad you like his name! :) I'll explain the significance (if there is any) later~! XD;;

Everyone's getting Madou vibes, I guess they really do look alike ._.a

Aaand yay :D I was actually a little tempted to have Kylie look at Michael and imagine a little sad puppy in a thought bubble, but thought it was too distracting to pull off. XD;;
Alicia 31st Jan 2015, 12:14 AM edit delete reply
Awww! I love his T^T face so much! (Can we keep him? XD)
rufiangel 31st Jan 2015, 7:14 PM edit delete reply
XD Ahahaha! Well, you have to make sure he's well fed and taken on walks every so often...

Someone knows how to make friends.
rufiangel 31st Jan 2015, 7:22 PM edit delete reply
XD; Easy~ just drop your supplies off a cliff and run around getting chased by monsters? XD
HeSerpenty 31st Jan 2015, 1:41 PM edit delete reply
Renault is sweet....TOO SWEET lolol

I HOPE it's not a trap cuz I really really like him! It sounds like he's been through the ringer tho D:
but still..I have this suspicion that maybe he's working with Abel somehow >__>
rufiangel 31st Jan 2015, 7:25 PM edit delete reply
Ahahaha, Renault's an interesting character. XD; I'll let the chapter speak for him but I am very happy to see people speculate! That's always fun to read XD;; <3
Lukkai 31st Jan 2015, 1:50 PM edit delete reply
Wasn't sure what to make of Renault at first. Is he an honest guy? Is he not? If not, what's his angle? Why does he have a car name? (scnr ;) )

But generally did not place him all to high on the "danger to the group" scale.

Then I read the comments. Started thinking that Nah, that's not very li.. when suddenly a voice started whispering in the back of my head "xellossss..."

That would fit.

Well, at least it wouldn't necessarily spell demise for the group.
rufiangel 31st Jan 2015, 7:27 PM edit delete reply
I know, he has a car name. XD

I'll explain this one day later~! I mean, just how his name came about. :P

Oh, and it took me several minutes to figure out what '5h#7' meant. XDD;;; I kept looking at it way too literally and even Googled it (with useless results). It took a moment away from the screen and then reading it again for me to realise what it was. I feel like such a dunce, LOL.
Lukkai 1st Feb 2015, 1:42 PM edit delete reply
Yeah, I wondered if I may have obscured it a little too much. XD

His bodyguard just ditched him??? D: Not a very good bodyguard! Poor guy. I'm curious if a merchant would join the party?
rufiangel 2nd Feb 2015, 3:06 AM edit delete reply
Since Renault says he dropped all the supplies he was supposed to sell in Clandest off a cliff, it would seem he no longer has the means to pay for a pricey escort. XD; Oops.

Actually, Michael is a merchant. In Archaeia, smiths (like armoursmiths, weaponsmiths and sealsmiths) are all merchants by default with skill branches that stem out of that towards more specialised smithing skills. :) So actually the party already has a merchant!

That said, 'pure' merchants (without any smithing skills and more people skills, I suppose) do exist as NPC types and may not be much of a fighter on the battlefield but a beast in the market when it comes to haggling, discounting and discerning the monetary worth of an item, but it remains to be seen what Renault is. :)

"Pricey escort"? That could have been worded better.
