We didn’t see that coming at alllll! Awesome!
Oh well, that clears that little uprising out
Well, that went as well as expected…
Yeah, this could get nasty.
Usually it’s the MORE followers you have, the more powerful you become. Makes me a bit curious how this will play out. Maybe, for Jone, the more followers who are in the Afterlife, the more powerful she becomes ..?
I’m still looking for the final clue that definitely tells us if Jone is a free agent unto herself or if she’s a tool of Ranna … because it’s beginning to look like Jone is the weapon that will either take Ranna out or otherwise ‘distract’ her enough to be taken out. If it’s the latter, then Jone will be a goddess unto herself when the dust becomes blood-soaked enough to settle., somewhat.
Well, Jone is better as goddess of chaos than Ranna…
Also Jone is all of the inherent capability for violence in the Orc species stuffed into a physical (kind of human) package. She doesn’t *need* followers.
And since she was already attacking gods and getting away with it *without* a worship=power advantage….oh dear, that’s a prospect isn’t it?
Don’t short change the lady…she has all the capacity for violence of BOTH of the two most successful war-like species cramed into her svelte frame … and only what she needs to exist in all other capacities….
Everything that is in her is for war, save for the bare minimum needed to be a living mortal (not clear if she is one again, or is…something else)…at least that was the purpose the late, lamented, He-Who-Watches thought he had succeeded in, with her. Ol’ One-Eye’s special projects were all Human, as well as Ork.
Don’t forget an entire half of her heritage!
(Who is to say if she got any boost from the crowd following her, or not, before…The Twin Goddesses apparently had bodies and large crowds of worshipers the last time they were walking around…)
Reminds me of playing Call of Cthulhu games… the cultists are always first on the menu when the big guy wakes up. You have to be a very special kind of stupid to be a cultist of apocalyptic beings…
Perhaps this mockery of a Chick Tract will help
I prefer this one: http://foo.ca/wp/chick-tract-satire/darkseid/
…. uh oh.
…there goes the neighborhood. (Or cave dwelling Jone cultists.)
I am going to miss Dame Gilda.
Yeah… 2nd best Kobold char… Rest in Pieces, Gilda.
Hope she is n’t related to good old Fang…. or Jone can say her prayers.
Jone vs Fang–the mind boggles!
Oh, that would be a truly exciting confrontatiin. But knowing Richard a little bit we may be sure that _everything_ will be exciting)))
Drat. I wanted to see it. Still, I can gleefully imagine it.
As always, the facial expressions on the silent characters are brilliant. Panel Two – that’s where they would have known, had they been paying attention. In fact, this strip works with no word balloons at all.
When presenting a weapon to Jone, throw it at her feet, run and hide before she picks it up and uses it on you.
That will work? Jone has such a "monster under the bed" quality about her that I’d almost think if I hid, she’d already be in my hiding spot, give me the toothy Jone grin and then chop my head off.
So… They are dead? lol
Well, having been separated from her Holy Blade for so long, it needed to be rededicated for its purpose. So Jone had to perform the baptism in blood again…
"How Jone Got her Sword Back."
Jone of Orc… You may thank my darling spouse for this bad joke, assuming it has not been used before.
Alas, not a chance. Most likely she was *named* for that pun.
I just got the volume 5 book yesterday and yup, she was named for that pun. Also, originally inspired by Heather Dale’s Joan song which is neat.
Yup: "Jone Half-Orc" is similar sounding as "Jone of Arc (or Orc)"
Literally, has been the running gag for Jone since (at least) 13 January 2010. So, yeah. Somewhat in use for six full years now. Was probably the entire concept behind her character before she even appeared in the Bloodfire arc, 2009.
I was so wrapped up in her arc the first time around that this didn’t cross my mind. So Jone has the Orc-ish wargift and human adaptability and the limiters in her brain don’t work. Okay. Now she has mortal limits. We’re all Doomed-deshi! Doomed!Welp at least she’ll take Ranna with us.
Jone the Revenant is on the mission all she needs is her weapon. Followers are for the weak.
Yeah, definitely Death Knight.
Wow. Blood dripping from the *ceiling* all the way to just outside the entrance of the cave? That must be one hell of a crime scene.
Obviously a lot more than just the four we saw in panel the first
Yeah, this kind of scenes is a "trademark" of <strikethrough> good </strikethrough> EVIL old YAFGC)))
Well, suprise, surprise.
That’s trouble. Big trouble.
And here we see a case of Retarded Evil, the most common of evils it is able to be confused for Chaotic Evil most of the time, the way that it is not- is that Chaotic Evil will often times prefer a cult over murdering everything. Just a friendly PSA, be chaotic, not retarded!
From your Friendly Neighborhood Necrodancer
Well you need to understand: Jone never started that cult, Gilda formed that cult formed using her name and used her as the figurehead
If I remember correctly, Jone was kinda embarrassed that a Cult had sprung up around her in the beginning.
And now she is ending the cult, the only way she enjoys
Ok, that was way more satisfying than I expected that it would be.
I don’t think her cult was evil (at least in the more "D&D" kind of evil) but more of misguided and obliviously blind to the obvious evil that Jone was, to the point that even if Jone ate the head of a orphan in front of them, they would still think of her as a being good, and it’s pretty clear that even Gilda herself believed every part of it too.
No, don’t believe the cult nor Jone herself were ‘evil': the girls (minus Gilda) believed in ‘freeing women’, and Jone just wanted to be left alone and be a blacksmith
And of course Gilda believed every part of it, she was the one who basically started it all. Makes me wonder if she even ever had real psychic abilities, or was simply a kobold like Fang (ie, a raving nutter)
Jone is not evil wicked yes but not evil.
She was made into a weapon of her god. He might have been a orc but he was not dumb.
I think he seen Ranna destroying him and Jone is his revenge.
Now Ranna has a mouthful of s##t, I suppose. But wait, everyone does have it as well. Oh s## 0_0
