Why, yes. Scripting this was, in fact, incredibly satisfying.

i could've sworn he didn't have that much blood before it got thrown around like that.
Centcomm 9th Jan 2015, 3:21 PM edit delete reply

youu would be surprised at how much blood there is ...
Dragonrider 8th Jan 2015, 9:13 PM edit delete reply

Refer to Monday's Comment, plus couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. Unfortunately there are innocent and semi innocent observers.
Stormwind13 9th Jan 2015, 2:56 PM edit delete reply

Very true Dragonrider. There are the guards, the combat team, the custom's agent and Connie. Then there is Mr. Black, who is NEITHER innocent or semi-innocent! He!! there are places that passed laws just BECAUSE of Mr. Black!

HAAA! A fitting end for the asshole!
Now I sooo want a murder-turd-scythe-lizard as a pet... either that or I want eyes like one.
Centcomm 9th Jan 2015, 3:22 PM edit delete reply

they are sooo.. uh cute? no .. cuddly? nope .. and well they dont make good pets they are born psychotic :D
Sheela 11th Jan 2015, 4:30 PM edit delete reply

They make awesome combat mounts !
CptKerion 11th Jan 2015, 10:06 PM edit delete reply
remove the mount from that and I'd believe you.
You see, I'd just load them into cryostasis tubes and shoot them into enemy positions after thawing them out. A lovely bit of havok.
Stormwind13 8th Jan 2015, 9:19 PM edit delete reply

Well, Rash called it. VERY reminiscent of that scene from Terra Nova - though it was Carnotaurus, not a T-Rex. :-D Not that anyone would care WHICH it was if it was coming at you.
Tokyo Rose 8th Jan 2015, 10:31 PM edit delete reply

Random Bystander: "OH FUCK, A T-REX!"
Pedantic Archaeologist: "Actually, it's a Carnotaurus sastrei."
Random Bystander: *is gone*
Pedantic Archaeologist: *gets eaten*
Pirtnac 9th Jan 2015, 9:33 AM edit delete reply
Wait wait, that's not what the movies taught me!

Pedantic Archaeologist wouldn't get eaten as he's not moving! Random Bystander is the one the big guy is going after. Pedantic Archaeologist is getting *stepped on!*

*Pirtnac gets eaten too as a murderturd is not a dinosaur*

yep you did :D
velvetsanity 8th Jan 2015, 9:38 PM edit delete reply

The jackass got what he had coming. Good. However, this leaves our intrepid heroes with possibly a bigger problem. There's a murder-turd loose in the customs inspection area!
Sheela 9th Jan 2015, 12:57 AM edit delete reply

Well yeah, where else would you have it at, TeeDee would be most upset if it wasn't there.
It's her steed, you see - She'd get grumpy if she couldn't ride her steed into Nova Roma! :D

She calls him Mr Popolopolis, becasuse Ada vetoed Mr PooPooHead.
Centcomm 9th Jan 2015, 3:22 PM edit delete reply

yep :D
Sheela 9th Jan 2015, 3:53 PM edit delete reply

It's now canon, the murderturds name is Mr Popolopolis ! :D

somoene is happy :D
Melody 9th Jan 2015, 4:08 PM edit delete reply
Happy is an understatement, and i'm not being mean to the Neanderthals. I'm being mean to THAT neanderthal.

I do agree, though, can it get loose in Prince Douchebag's room and eat him, too? Please? Pretty please? D:
Draginbeard 8th Jan 2015, 10:19 PM edit delete reply

Well, I guess its too late for him to chew over an attitude adjustment. All he had to do was sit down and maul over the idea of being a little nicer to people. Its the little things, once you've had time to digest them, a slight change on your outlook is less crushing than you might have expected.

Just saying.
Tokyo Rose 8th Jan 2015, 10:33 PM edit delete reply

I don't know whether to laugh or groan. I will compromise by making noises like a regurgitating sea lion in your honor.

An angry, hungry, red dwarf even.

smirks :D
Sheela 9th Jan 2015, 3:55 PM edit delete reply

That would be totally unfair to the poor murderturd !
Besides, it's mother told it not to hang out with the wrong crowd!
And Prince Douchebag is definately the wrong crowd.
Stormwind13 9th Jan 2015, 4:18 PM edit delete reply

LOL. Too true, Sheela. Even the murder-turd has standards... Douchebag doesn't meet them. :-D
CptKerion 10th Jan 2015, 9:03 PM edit delete reply
Are you sure a murder-turd has standards?
Stormwind13 10th Jan 2015, 9:31 PM edit delete reply

Welcome to go up to it and ask, Cpt. Of course insulting one (by implying it DOESN'T have standards) might not be your healthiest option, but... feel free to go there. :-D
CptKerion 11th Jan 2015, 11:55 AM edit delete reply
alright, to do this I'll need a main battle tank and a megaphone... and a milk jug, a long piece of twine, about 15 feet of PVC piping, a hack saw, four elbow joints for the piping, 17 12 penny nails, and a rubber chicken.
Centcomm 11th Jan 2015, 12:31 PM edit delete reply

And that guys leg...
Sheela 11th Jan 2015, 4:17 PM edit delete reply

I dunno man, I would probably substitute that rubber chicken for a real one.

Nothing like the real deal, to make things go right.
Unless it runs away ofcourse.

Good. Got what he needed.
Stormwind13 11th Jan 2015, 1:18 PM edit delete reply

I think he would disagree that he needed that in ANY way, plymmayer. :-D Now, he got exactly what he DESERVED, in my opinion.

Coroner's Report:

Occupation: Guard
Rank: Centurion
Cause of Death: Stupidity

I wonder if this would count as having died in the service of the crown...

i totally agree with both statements :D
CptKerion 10th Jan 2015, 9:04 PM edit delete reply
Reason For Posthumus Commendation of Centurion Optio Clauderius: Uuhhhhh...
Timotheus 9th Jan 2015, 12:54 AM edit delete reply

"Glomph" is such a wonderfully descriptive sound effect.
I will hazard a guess that the shipper/transporter (Mr. Black) has a shock collar or other handling device on yon over sized horny toad and can stop its rampage with the flick of a switch. Hence his lack of panic at the imminent opening of said pet carrier. By the way, shouldn't it have a "Live Animal" placard on it somewhere?
xpacetrue 9th Jan 2015, 1:29 AM edit delete reply

The operative word here being, "somewhere". If the idiot actually inspected that crate before opening it, or even read the manifest like Mr. Black suggested, he would have known. But he was confident he'd find an excuse to haul poor Ms. android away. The outside of the crate or even the manifest could be lying, so he ignored them, to his own peril.

Anyway, even if the front doors of the crate were clearly marked "Live Animal" or similar, I doubt it would have registered on Mr. Idiot. Obviously, Lamod was his first language. So it may not even register without trying to read it. And while he speaks Spenglish, he may not be able to read it.

On the plus side: His subordinate has learned a valuable lesson or two. :)

BTW: Was it just me, or did it seem like Mr. Black was very subtly trying to bait him into opening the crate? At the least, it can be said that Mr. Black tried to warn him, so they're all in the clear.
Fairportfan 9th Jan 2015, 2:47 AM edit delete reply

I'd say his first language was Classical Stupidity.
Mister Black 9th Jan 2015, 6:06 PM edit delete reply

Are you implying that I, as an honorable and upstanding licensed merchant in the glorious city that is Nova Roma, would do something so dastardly, underhanded, and generally disreputable as to intentionally manipulate the mentally sub-standard into doing something terminal? I am *shocked*...*shocked* I say at this implied defamation of my good character! *innocent look*
Haegan2005 9th Jan 2015, 6:46 PM edit delete reply

yeahhhh.... Though doth protest too much!
Reiko 9th Jan 2015, 7:04 PM edit delete reply

Oh, please, Mr. Black. Someone like you, involved in a cluster of an op like this, and you expect anyone to believe your protests of innocence? Pull the other one :D
Fairportfan 11th Jan 2015, 10:19 PM edit delete reply

Has it got bells on?
Centcomm 9th Jan 2015, 3:23 PM edit delete reply

it really is .. so os nom noom nom :D
Sheela 11th Jan 2015, 4:18 PM edit delete reply

Ah, but he already pulled the first one ... into the mouth of an angry murderturd!

Do you *really* want to be the other one ?
Reiko 12th Jan 2015, 6:29 PM edit delete reply

Actually, in the situation, I'd consider the bastard on the throne to be 'the other one'.

There really isn't any other way this could have played out to this point, since the bloody fool wouldn't allow it to go any other way. If Black could be seen as having goaded him into causing it to open, then he did so to give his team a chance to survive in the only way he could.

What I'm truly curious to know, is how did they catch the thing live?
Rashala 9th Jan 2015, 1:12 AM edit delete reply


that poor creature......Havint to eat That guy,,probally be sick for a week
Sheela 9th Jan 2015, 3:56 PM edit delete reply

Nah, it gets to poop him out on the seat of Prince Douchebags throne. :)
Stormwind13 9th Jan 2015, 4:20 PM edit delete reply

LOL Rash. Yeah, that was one of my thoughts too. That poor thing probably will spit him back out. That guard is probably THAT slimy that even a murder-turd won't eat him. :-D
mjkj 9th Jan 2015, 5:28 AM edit delete reply


Scythe lizard...

...what a pity that it happened so fast - he should have been frozen in shock while realizing his demise for at least a few more seconds...

Now let us hope they can contain the lizard before it attacks somebody else.

*hugs Connie* I hope she will be all right.

Wonder if it will ask for a refill? :D
Stormwind13 10th Jan 2015, 11:46 AM edit delete reply

Somehow, I get the feeling it doesn't ASK, Haegan. Just goes and gets it instead. :-)
Haegan2005 10th Jan 2015, 3:13 PM edit delete reply

Assertive monsters can always be relied upon to proactively reduce the local population! This could be good, or bad of course.

"More puleese!"
Stormwind13 10th Jan 2015, 5:16 PM edit delete reply

Just had a weird thought, Haegan.

Someone standing on top the container and using ventriloquism or some kind of voice-casting technology. "More puleese!"

Some of the people would probably get munched just from the sheer shock of (seemingly) being addressed by a murder-turd! }:-D~>

We don't know HOW murder-turds arose, I think. Someone was screwing around with SOMETHING though to get a critter that looks like that.

I find it interesting that I called him a red shirt so many pages ago.

I don't know how the authors managed to not say anything more then they did. That is real self control people!

And voilá, one firstclass distraction is now in action.
Time to smuggle Lynn out while they are distracted.
Stormwind13 9th Jan 2015, 4:17 PM edit delete reply

One problem with that is that they don't know where Lynn is. And as much trouble as that girl has been she would be DIRECTLY in the Scythe Lizard's path...

Everything tastes like chicken to a Scythe Lizard. That is why it eats EVERYTHING in its path that it can sink its teeth into.

Morituri 11th Jan 2015, 11:29 AM edit delete reply

Okay, I knew they were coming to make trouble of a couple sorts, but ... seriously, I thought they were trying to be sneaky about it, and they have ... a hungry four-ton lizard.

Did they really manage to find someone (Leaedus, according to the previous page) stupid enough to give them a legitimate commission to deliver one'a those? Like maybe for some weird gladatorial game or something?

And did they really write "hungry four-ton lizard" on the manifest Mr Black was telling the idiot to look at last page?

Or was this just a surprise present to the city and the opening move in a far less sneaky infiltration than I thought they were trying to do?
Stormwind13 11th Jan 2015, 11:35 AM edit delete reply

Yes, Morituri. :-D
