Ch. 2, Page 24

For Tenser, there was nothing scarier than being without a spell.  He ate, slept, and lived each day with the confidence that came from knowing that, at a moment's notice, he could let loose with any of his prepared spells to defend himself.  A life of adventure meant that he had to cast his spells more often than the average magic-user, but the trick of it was to make sure he had at least one in reserve for the trip back home, where his spellbook awaited him.  Then, after a few hours of preparation, spent perusing that magic tome and its well-worn pages, Tenser would feel safe, confident, and himself again.

It was in times like this, when he was most vulnerable, that Tenser was glad to know that Robilar and Terik had his back.

But then Tenser heard the clang of metal striking metal reverberating through the ruins...and knew that something scary was happening.

Which, coincidentally, was similar to the last thought one of the bandit archers had just before Robilar's arrow struck him in the chest.

  1. Exactly what does "git the other one" mean?


  2. Oh dear, I was hoping that was obvious enough not to have to dwell on. Robilar is distracted from entering the battle with Drake right away because he has to take out those two bandit archers we saw on the previous page.

  3. Maybe add that to the exposition?

  4. Doh: short term memory loss. I think it's clear reading back from the previous ep to this one, Scott, especially with Terik reinforcing that the was going to get the little bastards ;)


  5. Never let it be said that Mort and I are resistant to tinkering. I added a line about Robilar's archery targets and like it better now myself.
