So Ophelia was kind of right about the extra distant post. Nova Ilium is a pretty good distance from Nova Roma.

1700+ pages to get Feelie and TeeDee in the same room, reaching critical mass and detonating an F-bomb that could be seen three galaxies over...
I can just see Rose bouncing up and down in a chair, giggling like a madwoman while scripting it...
Ebonbolt 19th Sep 2020, 1:10 PM edit delete reply

In addition, gladiatorial arenas tend to "weed out" idiots. Lethally, in many cases. Do remember his history...
Sheela 21st Sep 2020, 5:02 AM edit delete reply

Rose, TeeDee and Ophelia walks into a bar ...

... the bar explodes, and a new grimoire of swearwords appears on the black market !
megados 21st Sep 2020, 6:29 AM edit delete reply

And fake copies of the grimoire appear on eBay
Sheela 23rd Sep 2020, 4:04 PM edit delete reply

Not to mention compilations of all the grimoires!

Why, you might even call it an encyclopedia !
Now we just need some encyclopedia salesmen. 😁
mjkj 16th Sep 2020, 12:56 AM edit delete reply

Well, good outlook - I hope she will have fun there...

@alt text: true =)

Huh. I never figured Max to like Dex enough to keep a picture of him on the wall...
megados 16th Sep 2020, 4:51 AM edit delete reply

Interesting choice of artwork.

The painting of douchey is on the opposite wall...throwing darts keeps the hand-eye coordination in shape.

aack! you said it before I could. lol
Centcomm 21st Sep 2020, 5:06 PM edit delete reply

See, _this_ is why we need a :troll: icon. :D
Romfire 16th Sep 2020, 2:01 AM edit delete reply
TeeDee and Ophie BBF :)
Oldarmourer 16th Sep 2020, 10:00 AM edit delete reply
They can compare old bodies :)
Gilrandir 17th Sep 2020, 9:54 AM edit delete reply
Let's take it a step further ... as an important part of building better relationships between Nova Roma and New Ilium, and to foster a cultural exchange, Ophelia and TeeDee can swap bodies, like World Cup Soccer players exchange jerseys. ^_^

Cultural exchange, technology exchange, vocabulary exchange and shared experiences all in one.
megados 17th Sep 2020, 10:03 AM edit delete reply

What could possibly go wrong?
Oldarmourer 17th Sep 2020, 11:22 AM edit delete reply
There's only one way to really find out...*looks reverently upward at the gleaming thrones of the creatrixes*...Ladies ?
Centcomm 21st Sep 2020, 5:07 PM edit delete reply

Oldarmourer 17th Sep 2020, 3:58 PM edit delete reply
Doc Silver could retire in luxury if she put raw video of TeeDee waking up in Feelie's old Pauline body on pay-per-view.
knuut 18th Sep 2020, 4:51 AM edit delete reply
Somehow I think TeeDee might make that a VERY short retirement.
Oldarmourer 18th Sep 2020, 4:32 PM edit delete reply
TeeDee could retire too and probably finance Ada's retirement as well...
Just from selling the viewing rights to Nova Roma's Gladiator Academy as a training film.
Sheela 21st Sep 2020, 5:04 AM edit delete reply

The training video would be banned in all civil states.
HiFranc 16th Sep 2020, 2:46 AM edit delete reply

If she’s going to go on such a mission, they would need to coordinate with Centcomm. I wonder how much she will tell them and how would she feel about it?
Oldarmourer 17th Sep 2020, 3:55 PM edit delete reply
And how much of it she'll report to Agamemnon as she agreed to...
We couldn't see her fingers though, she might have had them crossed ;)
HiFranc 17th Sep 2020, 4:30 PM edit delete reply

She has to be monitored rather than just report.

However, I suspect that, in this case, she would be willing to share. If those things are drones, she would not want their hard won peace to be lost. Furthermore, if she was tempted to keep it secret, she would calculate that there are too many ways it could blow up in her face if no warning is given.
Tom 16th Sep 2020, 4:18 AM edit delete reply
... Does she want to be sent to the gladiator barracks? Where did that come from? Is she so used to worst case scenarios?
Oldarmourer 16th Sep 2020, 7:54 AM edit delete reply
That image would be 'April' in the DC calendar...
Oldarmourer 16th Sep 2020, 10:02 AM edit delete reply
I wonder what would have happened if when Feelie said:
"Send me off to the gladiator's barracks in that stupid sex-bot body ?"
Maxus had just answered:
"Would you go ?"
Oldarmourer 16th Sep 2020, 10:03 AM edit delete reply
Maxus seems to be skilled in calling people's bluffs ;)
sigpig 16th Sep 2020, 11:59 AM edit delete reply

It makes me wonder how much a BFF she was for Malati.

Also, I can see Malati having some SERIOUS thoughts of being transferred into a Commander Pauline chassis...
Oldarmourer 16th Sep 2020, 2:23 PM edit delete reply
I'm pretty sure it was mentioned somewhere that Feelie and Malati did go to the gladiators together but I forget where..
Oldarmourer 16th Sep 2020, 8:09 PM edit delete reply
According to CentActual in the comments here:

Centcomm 4th Jun 2015, 9:17 PM edit delete reply

The grey was Malati .. :D and she does like orgys .. :D
robnot 21st Sep 2020, 10:23 AM edit delete reply
ah ha,, found it page 1092... is where Malati sed she was going to fling panties.. also where she sed she had the "fun" park..
megados 16th Sep 2020, 4:50 AM edit delete reply

Consult in NT? That suggests they have had similar incidents there.

Re: alt text, Imagination de-escalation. Ophelia certainly had assembled quite the assortment of worst-case scenarios!
HiFranc 17th Sep 2020, 4:17 PM edit delete reply

I think it’s that the event happened closer to New Troy than New Rome.
Oldarmourer 17th Sep 2020, 6:16 PM edit delete reply
The one with Feelie happened sort of closer to Nova Roma, looks to maybe be in the general vicinity of Wash/NY ?
The one with Cyana at the water depot is a lot closer to New Troy, a great distance apart...
The question is, will Logrin's report hit Centcomm's virtual 'desk' at the same time as Maxus's overtures ?
Sheela 21st Sep 2020, 5:06 AM edit delete reply

Possibly sooner, Logrin did not seem like the sort that just sits around doing nothing - And Mister Sutherland might pay good money for the information.
robnot 21st Sep 2020, 10:43 AM edit delete reply
yes two separate incidents..
one was outside New Rome (figurately)
an other was central Wyoming near Thermopolis or Boysen lake Res.
so about 2500 miles (4k) apart..
Centcomm 21st Sep 2020, 5:08 PM edit delete reply

Deoxy 16th Sep 2020, 7:19 AM edit delete reply
She's not only completely correct about her diplomatic skills, she demonstrates the truth of it while she says it. Very impressive.
Centcomm 21st Sep 2020, 5:08 PM edit delete reply

she likes being honest
Gilrandir 16th Sep 2020, 8:52 AM edit delete reply
I want to know if that is a landscape of Wrothgar in the fourth panel. Or possibly Anequina.
Oldarmourer 16th Sep 2020, 4:58 PM edit delete reply
It's from another comic/artist but I forget where it was talked about, maybe during another scene in Maxus' quarters.
Gilrandir 16th Sep 2020, 10:53 PM edit delete reply
Are you talking about the clown portrait (panel 3)? Because I was referring to the waterfall in panel 4. I agree (after going back to look, because I would never have spotted it otherwise) that the clown portrait appears to be the same one we saw in Maxus quarters.
Oldarmourer 17th Sep 2020, 11:24 AM edit delete reply
To be honest, the waterfall didn't catch my eye...
DLKmusic 17th Sep 2020, 6:26 PM edit delete reply

I had to look at it pretty closely, but I think you're right, that looks like the Waterfall just northeast of Orsinium in Wrothgar.

(I'm not sure if I should be proud or embarrassed that I play the game enough to recognize it!)
Centcomm 21st Sep 2020, 5:08 PM edit delete reply

as far as i know it was royalty free art on the web
Gilrandir 21st Sep 2020, 5:16 PM edit delete reply
Thank you, @Centcomm.

Peripherally related question: Does a water clock go ‘Aquatick-tock’? ^_^
Oldarmourer 16th Sep 2020, 11:34 AM edit delete reply
Interesting shot for the incentive :)
megados 16th Sep 2020, 12:28 PM edit delete reply

Looks good! 😂 I like her whimsical head angle.
Centcomm 21st Sep 2020, 5:09 PM edit delete reply

ok maybe she is bending her head a little.. toooooo much
Oldarmourer 21st Sep 2020, 9:27 PM edit delete reply
or maybe that's why Dolly took lessons from her ;)
KarToon12 16th Sep 2020, 11:53 AM edit delete reply

Hey, sometimes the best way to learn is to just dive right in and try your best. No one is ever truly "ready", so you might as well just put yourself out there.

Beautiful -
But I still miss ADA and Dolly.
Sheela 21st Sep 2020, 5:08 AM edit delete reply

They will return, I'm sure.
They may not be main actors in this story arc, but I'm sure they will be part of it.
Besides, kittens still need to be saved!
From themselves if nothing else.
Centcomm 21st Sep 2020, 5:09 PM edit delete reply

Dolly is taking a vacation..
StLOrca 16th Sep 2020, 1:24 PM edit delete reply

I keep saying this, but the way you write Opehlia's dialog is HILARIOUS.
Centcomm 21st Sep 2020, 5:10 PM edit delete reply

thats all on Rose.. i just said.. make her aussy. and rose glared at me.
StLOrca 21st Sep 2020, 8:38 PM edit delete reply

That makes it even funnier because now I’m “hearing” her dialogue in an Aussie accent.
Oldarmourer 16th Sep 2020, 4:58 PM edit delete reply
Rashala 16th Sep 2020, 11:15 PM edit delete reply

Do I see her and a surely nova illium rescue worker meeting and hitting it off as drinking budies?

robnot 17th Sep 2020, 8:23 AM edit delete reply
nice Minx.!
Centcomm 21st Sep 2020, 5:10 PM edit delete reply

and she has a bathing suit!
Oldarmourer 22nd Sep 2020, 5:52 AM edit delete reply
She doesn't need it, must be hard to render shiny cloth like that so if you need to save time on the next one...
Oldarmourer 17th Sep 2020, 12:55 PM edit delete reply
SO begins another week of sitting in suspense, waiting to see what happens next with our Audacious Aussiebot...

This might kill a little time...a few of the characters would fit right into the DC world too
Oldarmourer 17th Sep 2020, 1:59 PM edit delete reply
And if you like a little touch of surrealism in your life..or afterlife...

Not sure if you read these two in conjunction with each other, one before the other or even which one...

I started the library first, it seems to work well that way... for me anyway, your experience may vary
Oldarmourer 17th Sep 2020, 2:02 PM edit delete reply
the first few pages of both are quite similar but the stories diverge very sharply after a little bit.
mjkj 20th Sep 2020, 3:42 AM edit delete reply

Thank you for the new vote incentive 😀
Centcomm 21st Sep 2020, 5:10 PM edit delete reply

robnot 22nd Sep 2020, 9:24 AM edit delete reply
S&S finally dun it.. made it to #1 by spamming..
they just added 1k (or so) more vote bots a day..
i guess TWC don't look at "X amount" of spam, as spam.!
megados 22nd Sep 2020, 10:00 AM edit delete reply

Yeah, they started to sink down, so it was time for the bots again :/
Oldarmourer 22nd Sep 2020, 4:48 PM edit delete reply
I'm beginning to think that topweb considers even bots as counting toward 'page views' for ads and probably encourages it
