Despite what it looks like that kick did in fact land above the belt.

(this comic is a few hours late because I have poor time management skills)

"It's just one guy. We can take him!" Famous last words of the Hammer Station FP finale.

"It's just one guy." meaning adds or a fight mechanic is just around the corner...

On a side note: I don't know if this has already been answered on an earlier page and I don't really want to dig through comments, do you RP everything that happens in this comic in-game or does it just come to you?

Salih and Mendiloquence are characters that belong to myself and my significant other respectively. When we play through content together we do sort of RP and some times I take note of some of the comments we make. I then forget most all that when I'm writing out the script.

Basically we play through with our alts (as Salih and Mendiloquence are already played through this content a LONG time ago) and screen shot the hell out of everything. Like I have so many screen shots saved on my computer you don't even know. When I am ready to start writing a chapter I sit down and read all the screen shots for that planet/flash point several times so I can get a good feel for the story. Then I go in and start working out how much story I can fit on one page and how I can make it funny. After I'm done I go back and re-work the script so it's better and keep doing that right up until I post the comic.

For example, I added the "I'm Ok" last night when I was finishing up on this comic because I realized the last panel needed something.

Hope that answers your question. :)

Is that how it goes?

Mendiloquence

Translation: She follows me around and takes rigorous note of all the awesome things I do. She then conveys my awesomeness to you.

She does take a few creative liberties, though. For instance, by this point in the game I was dancing shirtless at every opportunity. In between fights, on top of her starship terminal while she was trying to use it, with random strangers, etc. This has for some reason been omitted from the comic thus far.

Yes it truly is shocking that somehow I didn't find your bare undulating torso essential to the plot.

Hmmm now I kinda want to see a page of him dancing shirtless with random strangers on the fleet.....

I'm not sure if we should be encouraging him like that...

OOC: I do recall Ilayas mentioning that any and all outfit changes will be part of the plot. If Mendy's shirtlessness isn't part of the plot, then it won't be shown.

What?! Of course it is most very essential to the plot! Shirtless Mendiloquence dancing is THE ONLY REASON THE INTERNET WAS INVENTED!!
Now you have made the Internet sad, it no longer has any purpose, poor Internet. :(

speaking of shirtless...

Rorhi Tarnation

When my Chiss Operative was running Black Talon, a guy with a racist toon name thried to have my toon booted from the group for not wearing a shirt. But he sure looked sexy in his covert energy chest and Calo Nord boots, belt and pants. I think the guy was jealous, or he just couldn't handle the sexy. Taritzal wears clothes mostly now, he was a very young agent then.

Question for Ilayas

16th Feb 2016, 6:33 AM

Karpinsky

So if Mendiloquence is now interacting with the readership, does that mean we can get Salih interacting as well?

Also, I thought you didn't know her name...

Well he's about as real as I am. As for Salih she's quite happy to remain behind the 4th wall.

Which is a shame, since I feel like I could actually have an intellectual conversation with her, as opposed to what passes for conversation with Mendiloquence...

Ooc here for a moment because I feel there is some confusion. I have no desire to sock puppet an an account for Salih. I am not Mendiloquence and Mendiloquence is not technically my character. He is used with permission from his owner. The person posting as Mendiloquence is the one person that has more right to speak in his name than me.

I've elected to ignore it.

Mendiloquence

1. I am very real. I'm the realest person you're ever gonna meet.

2. You just allowed me to quote Nick Fury in relation to myself. So, thanks for that.

3. I'm not supposed to know Darth Vader, Count Dooku or Nick Fury's names either, but here we are.

Nick Fury only says stuff because he hopes one day to be quoted by Mendiloquence.
Nick Fury is happy today! :D

Those last 5 frames... That knockback. I know that feeling.

With my guild the last line in this strip would be "I guess we're in" and I'd start healing like a crazy sith.
