SOoooo, goldy there desired Maxus' job did he?
Centcomm 15th Sep 2015, 10:47 PM edit delete reply

That he did.
Sheela 17th Sep 2015, 5:15 AM edit delete reply

Was he aware of the danger of the job ?

And by danger, I mean Decimus.
Haegan2005 15th Sep 2015, 9:04 PM edit delete reply

So glad I am not the new Lord General.
Centcomm 15th Sep 2015, 10:48 PM edit delete reply

Yeah .. he is NOT Maxus
Fairportfan 15th Sep 2015, 9:10 PM edit delete reply

Yah.

You, sir, deserve some scotch and a cigar for that awesome line.

i second sumdude.
Melody_Whyte 16th Sep 2015, 11:23 PM edit delete reply

Use the line! That'd be HILARIOUS, seeing Douchimus' face when he realizes it's Maxus. xD
Sheela 17th Sep 2015, 5:14 AM edit delete reply

Ha ha, yeah it would be pretty funny. :)

For Heavens sake, Noctis, and for your own, do NOT mention the Cyberpath where Decimus can here it...
Sheela 17th Sep 2015, 5:17 AM edit delete reply

I dunno man, I would like to see what it looks like when Decimua have an aneurysm. :D
The Old Scribe 15th Sep 2015, 9:23 PM edit delete reply

Hokay, Prince Douchebag has officially gone totally batshit! I mean, gas the whole palace, my Liege? Cah'mon now! At least Adventus there has some sense when it comes to Nuclear Options. The Cassians aren't worried though, they don't breathe.

Also, Douchebag still thinks it's the peasants rioting. What a fool.

Do we know for a fact that Cassians don't breath? Yes, they're androids (gynoids). But we know that androids in New Troy have organic, synth brains and, often, other organic parts. Many eat food of some sort for nutrients for their organic parts, if not for energy. And burning food for fuel suggests they need to breath oxygen.

Luna is known for medical androids with positronic brains, but that's Luna.

Aside from the Cassians, I'm wondering if Ceci and Dolly would be okay. Ceci, at least, is a Black Angel. But Dolly's new body is designed to be as human as possible. (Heck, Dolly got drunk off her ass in that bar. So we know that alcohol can make her pass out.) And let's not forget Teedee and Ada.

BTW: If they can flood the vents with a deadly gas, then they should just as easily be able to flood the vents with an incapacitating agent. Though, in real life, knockout gas does not work the way it does in cartoons or on shows. It's illegal stuff and one reason is because there's a chance it could be fatal (i.e., overdose).
Centcomm 15th Sep 2015, 10:50 PM edit delete reply

Cassians have built in filters and protective layers they can ignore nerve gas. As can Ceci. Dolly carry's a breather. as do Teedee and Ada. Also all of them have Bio sensors that would alert them the second gas weapons were used.

Ahhh check out the <alt> Text for why one of Maxus' troops would be trying to usurp him.

Dragonrider 15th Sep 2015, 9:55 PM edit delete reply

Sorry wasn't one of Maxus troops, he was one of Douche-asses bully-boys.
anonymous coward 16th Sep 2015, 1:38 AM edit delete reply
He's exactly the subordinate that Decimus deserves: A slow-thinking sycophant high on paint fumes. We can only hope his proximity slows down the self-destructive tendencies amongst the leadership.
Tokyo Rose 16th Sep 2015, 1:33 AM edit delete reply

The spray-paint line is a joke, but yeah, that's the head of Decimus's personal guard, now wearing pimped-out Lord General armor. :D
Lukkai 16th Sep 2015, 5:36 PM edit delete reply

Though he actually seems to be using that head of his. Probably one of the capable ones out of the lot.
Sheela 17th Sep 2015, 5:21 AM edit delete reply

I'm thinking that Maxus' actual gold star troops won't apprechiate him wearing "stolen plumage", so-to-speak.

He's basically putting on airs, that he doesn't deserve.
Ah well, I think he will eventually be schooled by Maxus himself.
Dragonrider 15th Sep 2015, 9:52 PM edit delete reply

Dammit that wasn't Maxus. Way to go Douche-ass, seems the blood flowing out of his head and into his ass has caused him to forget that the poison gas will also kill Acantha and Lynn Taylor. This jerk-wad general wanna be seems to have at least a half-wit he talked Douche-ass out of gassing the palace, and probably save the lives of everyone in Nova Roma. Fairly sure that neither Cally, Grandmother, Aeneas nor Dolly would have stopped until everyone was dead in the City if Lynn and Acantha were dead.

Not necessarily. Kali said that Acantha (& Taylor) were in the lower levels and descending. His Wackiness may have realized that they would be out of the area of effect.
Centcomm 15th Sep 2015, 10:51 PM edit delete reply

Aventus is basically refusing to use gas weapons. Hes just saying it in a round about way.
Timotheus 15th Sep 2015, 11:34 PM edit delete reply

After all, what is a general without an army to order around? Sort of defeats the whole purpose of the title.
wright1 16th Sep 2015, 11:43 AM edit delete reply
Yeah, while I have little sympathy for him, I don't envy him either. He and Kali are walking a very fine line: to directly defy Emperor Crazypants is both against clear directives and suicide.

But following his current orders only exhausts their resources while likely not inflicting much harm on the enemy. I can't remember if it's been revealed Kali has the option to see that Dek gets a "much needed nap" (cough, cough) when he starts issuing orders that will clearly bring down *everything*. Given his paranoia, I doubt he would leave himself vulnerable that way...
Sheela 17th Sep 2015, 5:23 AM edit delete reply

yeah, they are definitly trying to steer Decimus in a more productive direction.
That one guy 17th Sep 2015, 6:44 PM edit delete reply
He said "the outer vents". That suggests that it's not the whole palace. My first read was it was mainly near the entrances and even perhaps entirely outside.
mjkj 15th Sep 2015, 11:55 PM edit delete reply

Oh, now he wants to kill Acantha and Lynn??? O_O'
Stormwind13 17th Sep 2015, 5:27 PM edit delete reply

I think he has just FORGOTTEN about them, mjkj. He is so lost in his frightened fantasy, not thinking about anything but protecting his precious skin. And punishing those that are threatening it. :-P
StellarJay 16th Sep 2015, 12:23 AM edit delete reply

When I saw the private conversation between Noctis and Kali, I was amused that their communication included a digitized sigh.
Sheela 17th Sep 2015, 5:24 AM edit delete reply

Maybe it takes ultra high technology to convey human emotions in a precise manner ?

Or in this case, android emotions.
Matt Knab 16th Sep 2015, 2:57 AM edit delete reply

"I'm sorry, sir, I can't kill them all. You just said you had to do everything yourself, and I can't disobey your orders..." :P
Hornet 16th Sep 2015, 7:36 AM edit delete reply
Hell given the sound of this last page no ones going to have to kill this douche-kazoo. He's going to die of either a grande mal heart-attack or cerebral hemorrhage.
Deoxy 16th Sep 2015, 9:06 AM edit delete reply
No danger of cerebral hemorrhage - he doesn't use his brain NEARLY enough for that to happen (or matter if it did).
madned 16th Sep 2015, 11:51 AM edit delete reply
this presupposes natural causes.
Tokyo Rose 17th Sep 2015, 7:14 PM edit delete reply

My god I love that "douche-kazoo"

Oh god, Rose has started taking notes from the commenteers. >_<
chk 16th Sep 2015, 8:34 AM edit delete reply

Conscript more men and have them trained, outfitted and ready for battle NOW!!

No sweat. After all, I'm Lord General. I won't fail you like Maxus. I have five minutes experience, after all.
Phil_ 16th Sep 2015, 9:33 AM edit delete reply
Nox: Tell me that you have some good news

Noctis: The good news is .. I look Totally HOT in my battle gear! Win!
Cal 16th Sep 2015, 10:30 AM edit delete reply
I think the new boss really oughta hope he never meets the old boss. They are most definitely NOT the same.

Could be a short career.
Sheela 17th Sep 2015, 5:34 AM edit delete reply

Short, brutal and bloody.
Timotheus 16th Sep 2015, 1:10 PM edit delete reply

I wonder If Maxus would accept, "I was only following orders." as an excuse to let him live.
Hornet 16th Sep 2015, 1:38 PM edit delete reply
I'd wager they have a long and conflicted past, Now all we need is to find out that Adventus is actually Maxus's brother.
That one guy 17th Sep 2015, 6:47 PM edit delete reply
Or a close relative of the guy who attacked Maxus' lover (Irene, if I recall correctly).
revzet 16th Sep 2015, 3:24 PM edit delete reply

I like how the Cassians are silently insulting Decimus. Makes me wonder if they do this on a day to day basis with each other lol
Lukkai 16th Sep 2015, 5:38 PM edit delete reply

Gotta let out steam somehow!
Sheela 17th Sep 2015, 5:35 AM edit delete reply

I would say .. most likely.

Heck, Malati has probably insulted him to his face a few times.
Ofcourse, she's dead now, but I'm sure she was the go-to gal, if something nasty needed saying.
Rashala 16th Sep 2015, 3:26 PM edit delete reply

yep the craps hitting the fan

also pc down AGAIN.
*walks to teedee. "gotta borrow this be right back" borrows her ppc and turn half
of uptown nova roma into a burning wasteland then hands it back
"thanks I feel much better now" and gives teedee a beer
CptKerion 17th Sep 2015, 8:06 PM edit delete reply
I hope you get your PC working again soon man.
kitty 16th Sep 2015, 4:23 PM edit delete reply

Lukkai 16th Sep 2015, 5:39 PM edit delete reply

What do you mean "in"?

More like "since"!
CptKerion 17th Sep 2015, 8:06 PM edit delete reply
No no, he's about to get worse.
Or dead.
This can only go two ways really.
cattservant 16th Sep 2015, 5:59 PM edit delete reply

Not good news at all.
Sheela 17th Sep 2015, 5:37 AM edit delete reply

Yeah, TeeDee would love to break the news to him.
... in pieces.
... with jagged edges.
... pushed up into his rectum.
That one guy 17th Sep 2015, 6:51 PM edit delete reply
I wonder how many selfies TeeDee has with people who she's just done that to.

"Wince or scream for the camera...Thanks! Great face there. Just for that, if you want, I'll kill you now, instead of letting you suffer as you bleed out. I hate to do it, but that one's going up on the wall, so I feel kinda' generous."

Though realistically, TeeDee would have a lot more profanity for a statement that long.
Spelledeg 17th Sep 2015, 7:24 AM edit delete reply

o_o Hot dang. I'm all caught up again. Centy these last several pages of fighting and oh my goshhh have been gorgeous and so much plot.

This is a really bad day to be a Cassian though, as Prince-jerkface is in full crazy mode.
CptKerion 17th Sep 2015, 8:07 PM edit delete reply
This is a bad day to be anyone within ICBM range of Nova Roman.
Wolfsbane 17th Sep 2015, 2:02 PM edit delete reply

I am the very model of a modern new Lord General,
I've information vegetable, animal, and mineral,
I know rulers of New Rome, and I quote the fights historical
From the Palace Gate to Murder-turds in order categorical...

etc. :P
That one guy 17th Sep 2015, 6:53 PM edit delete reply
You've gotta' give him credit for not overlooking the attitude of enormous nuclear fireballs that are light years away. Not many rulers are comprehensive enough to try to keep the stars from getting too uppity.
CptKerion 17th Sep 2015, 7:58 PM edit delete reply
Hey, hey. That technopath could readily turn into good news by removing that near absolute loyalty thing.

I gotta wonder what originally tips Decimus into insanity, what it that they made the lime skittles into green apple? (I say as I sit here with a bag of skittle lamenting the loss of the lime flavor


aaannndd I just realized something absurdly creepy. I look a lot like a blond Decimus with a left side part...

and while flipping up to get a good look at his face while also being able to see the mirror I just read the rollover text.
My god, I love that so much.


SOMETHING JUST CLICKED!
Dr. Silver is the answer to all the problems! She's a technopath, she can neutralize the 'switch' of sorts Decks has going.
She can free the Cassians, convert the bots, turn off the autoguns, disable the various self-destructs...


[since this is mostly just the stream of consciousness coming as I carefully observe the page]
Noctis has a drawn weapon and this look in her eyes... what if she were already freed and is presently using that lack of good news as a smokescreen to hide that she has been 'compromised' and is about to act on my above theory, preferrably by offing the evil overlord of incompetence.

Of course I bet I am overestimating everything at the moment.
But still...
Sheela 18th Sep 2015, 3:53 AM edit delete reply

Decimus have more than just the Cassians to keep a poor Cuberpath busy.
And he relies mostly on manpower to begin with.
So even if she wrecked every technical installation, he would still be dangerous.
Still, she can certainly add more gravel into the gears, than most can ... and then .. TeeDee breaks the rest. :)
