Elzear’bith was tortured by professionals girls.. Break her convert her? Good luck with that… Be like trying to beat a black pudding to Death.. She to broken to break.
If only they were _WORTHY_ Dark Mistresses. They would have realized earlier on to break out the warm luxury bath and comfey chair.
The missing thought balloon in panel #2: "So, she’s evil and powerful … and we’re not worshiping her … Why?"
Answer back would be been there done that, Religions a nuisance. Waiting for the Good Guys to get rid of theirs!
They dealt with evil and powerful. They don’t want her back. To many restrictions on them.
Get..THE COMFY CHAIR!
HAHAHAHA! Ah, love how Elzear’bith just shrugs it all off.
Thanks for the strip!
Apparently, none of the converted Mistresses are anywhere near as clever as Jais…
Elzear’bith have get de-throned, humiliated and fleeced alive. Noting the dark mistress can do can be worse than she already experienced….
Like V for Vendetta then you have experiences your worst fear there are noting more to fear….
Question to Rich: Arachne speak about Elzear’bith to Maula. Is it known that the jester is the real ex-drow queen, or only that the a jester who calling herself Elzear’bith (for comic effect)
Fairly sure everyone who needs to know, knows, you know?
It was only the regular Orcs who thought she was doing a great act
Guesticus is right, though it’s not actually a secret. Elzear’bith flip-flops between enjoying life as a popular entertainer and a political shit disturber, and demanding her old life as queen back.
Most of the people are so taken with Nephilia as the Drow Queen that they’ve sort of forgotten what the old riegn was like, so the’ve similarly forgotten that Elzear’bith was Queen and don’t believe the crazy fool when she claims to be her.
Those who are politically active like Queen Maula, Glon, Lewie and so on, who actually had to deal with her in person, remember who and what she was.
Is there a reason they are not letting Queen Neph know just how bad things are?
At some point between the creation of the "Order of the Spider" and YAFGC present it became a sort of semi-legendary secret society (like the Illuminati or the Masons) and Arachne has been happy to cultivate the mystique. How or why the idea of Arachne can intimidate Wolf into betraying Mahr’i is not clear yet but she still does things in secret.
Maula also knows something about what Arachne is and does, but how much she knows is not clear. (See "Coup D’Drow" for another example of this).
Wasn’t actually meaning about the "OotS" (well, the _other_ "OotS" ), but about not letting the new Queen know about Ranna
But Nephilia DOES know that the splinter Mistress group are worshipping Ranna and that it’s a bad thing. Arachne went to her first.
But, does she know how bad Ranna is? It just seemed to me that Arachne and Queen Mrs B are keeping _that_ part from her
Not questioning your plans or anything, just attempting to understand
Guesticus — I think you might be over-thinking this from the wrong angle. A bit.
Nephilia seems pretty up to speed, but she doesn’t seem to care very much. Perhaps as a (semi)immortal herself and having been through what she’s seen & been through in her long, evil life … Ranna’s evil might seem a bit abstract and passing. Gods come and go in the lifetime of a Drow.
It’s Maula that is still getting up to speed on just how serious it is and could be; that’s why she’s leaning on a trusted adviser. She is THE Queen now. Nephilia has the luxury of walking away and letting it rest on the Queen’s head … and Maula is looking a bit weary, the crown a bit heavy. Orcs don’t generally live so long, and she’s been through a lot. Not entirely sure she’s at the top of her game, and now Ranna is dumped in her lap.
Glon might be inheriting the crown a little sooner than expected. Maula’s legendary reputation and stunning feats, I think, are obscuring the reality to many around her that she is an aging grandmother. She herself might not have fully brought that to the surface of her consciousness.
Anyway. Those would be my speculations and analysis. I’m gonna hold some of the more exotic possibilities closer to the vest for a bit yet.
Probably am overthinking things, just seemed that Arachne waited until Queen Neph left in panel five before she started talking about it further
Just wondering how long it is before someone let’s it slip where Lewie could learn about it
…exactly "why" would it be bad, if Elzear’bith (?) gets converted?
She’s only a jester now…
She was the drow queen, and she’s known Arachne since they were children. So my guess is that she knows too many of Arachne’s secrets, and perhaps even some things about the Order of the Spider. If converted she might give Ranna clues about her most dangerous enemies, or for where to look for her body, which would be really bad. (Although maybe inevitable, plotwise.)
Or, just maybe, Arachne cares about Lizard Breath
What? You don’t believe Arachne could actually care about her? You saw how she was when she found out Lizzie had gone missing
Weapons Magic ,secret Artifacts fact is as the former Drow Queen Way dangerous..And she could be used as a legitimate heir to unite enemies.. Yes she was a moron but memories are short look at are world people are thinking Jeb Bush is a good idea….
You know it was once common for royalty to dress as court Jesters and Amuse the peasants Guesticus ? No if she was killed there could of been problems making her a happy clown was really smart since Arachne would never know when she might need those secrets , but in someone else’s hands? Yes I be worried if I was her.. Imagine if Isis captured Former President Bush…
She was cracked once by tickling. So it’s possible.
