...Why would he think that she was limited to fears? She's literally never used fears against people since she's become involved with Tirin.

@Ganurath: see? Wasn't an AOE spell, simple Slorn-arrogance

@Guesticus: Just because the jammer didn't disrupt Dabny doesn't mean it's not AOE, it just means it doesn't work on Dabny. My current hypothesis is that psionics =/= magic.

@Ganurath: and question was: is Etrussedup inhibiting Dabs, and the answer, clearly, is No!, the reason is irrelevant (and redundant as it has now been dealt with)

@Guesticus: I'm not arguing that it didn't work. However, on this update you used the lack of inhibition regarding Dabney as evidence that the inhibitor's radio waves aren't an area effect, without considering alternates. For example, Dabney's mental shenanigans may work the same way as Shojin Uhura's neural network.

@Ganurath: what ever it was, Dabs was not affected by it, and that was the point (probably shouldn't have used 'AOE')

@Merceneiress: no worries about not replying to each an every comment, sometimes there are just too many to give individual replies, and sometimes giving a reply would come close to revealing spoilers

P.S. Love reading everyone's comments --- once again, bringing up excellent points and makes me rethink things a bit...

If I don't respond to your comments directly, don't think less of me --- I really do enjoy reading them. Keep 'em coming, please!

Let the mind games commence? Maybe even "adjust" his perception so that he sees them still captured while they are in fact free and ready to kick arse.
So many things can be done with mental powers.....looking forward to your take on them.

Hee, totally knew Dabs would play a big role in this :D

And... it wasn't just her fingers Mirby snapped :)

Great page!

My only gripe is a pet peeve. The phrase is "free rein". It's "rein" as in controlling a horse, not "reign" as in the period in which a monarch is in power.

Giving someone "free rein" comes from allowing a horse to use it's own perceptions to guide the ride. Horses, for example, can smell water at a greater distance than a human, so if you're in great need of a water source, you might give your horse "free rein" so it could take you to water.

Silly etymological thing, I know, but eggcorns like that really bug me.

@quarktime: Thank you - absolutely right. Corrected!

I can imagine tons of scientific publications on sexual dimorphism in slorn existing in the merceneiress universe. This is the first time we see a female slorn and they seem to be very different from the male specimen. Or maybe male slorn are xenophilic and attracted to different species? That could explain why they never seemed to have a sizeable population in the first place.

@ems: fairly sure Ull is not a Slorn

Seeing this beautiful female of a species unknown until now, explains a lot about why the Slorn are so into porn. This makes me think they are a dying race that uses time manipulation in order to hang on to what little life they have left.

..Hoping that Abby is thinking tactically and that 'snap' will take care of the mask of doom.
Guesticus (Guest) February 4th, 2018, 11:14 am
@Mysto: took care of more than just the mask...
