[ Heraldic Majesty ]

Title Text: glistening hunk of what?

Pfft, Bailey, put on your glasses; you're embarrassing yourself with that inability to tell when a man is of god-like build.

Well, at least we now know that Baily's actually getting dragged into this, so we can put the speculation to rest (and by rest, I mean: "to work on other things"). Of course, there's always the "it was just a dream" sequence, but I don't really feel we're going that way.

Ya know, screaming uncontrollably may be the best form of action here. At least in comparison to the option of listening to him...

Pete is just the most perfect character.

There is already a lot of tension here and we haven't even gotten far at all.

Again I must reiterate that waiting for updates with this one is probably going to hurt.

Yeah, no point in hiding the game. But will the full truth come out is the question. It seems that everyone has something to lose at the moment; King's relationship, Bailey's trust, and Pete's dignity (dude, don't try to make yourself sound better, you come off a little as a nerd).

I don't really know what to expect here, though I am sad to see the cosmic nerds go, if they are as has been said. Given some vocal people's displeasure about the theme, I had hoped that the most dramatic parts could be resolved with the ideas kept, even if more minor or sidelined. Either way I doubt the comic will disimprove, I'd just miss them some.

Since I'm up...

Alas, my love has seen the bird
He claims he's flashing... how absurd.
Since she has asked I'll meekly tell
about this creature's intended hell.
But there's a flaw in this nerd's plan.
See, I'm a dog...with the brain of man.
This poisoned mind in front of us
is such a broken, silly cuss.
For he couldn't understand
that true love's bond is Dragon's plan.
Since you love me and I love you
I'm switching sides
GET DOWN HERE YOU TWO!

*POOF!*
*Dragon and Kitsune appear*

Kitsune: What's this nonsense all about? Don't tell me you're going to pout.

King: Bailey, dearest, truth be told
I must tell...and be so bold...
I wasn't always in this form
But strange things 'round here seem the norm.
These three you see behind me standing
Are cosmic interlopers, and quite demanding.
The bird-brained one here changed me so,
from Man to Dog, to deal a blow
to the Dragon here, whom he has challenged
To a cosmic board game for the world to manage.
He sought to make me discontented,
but through him to you was I presented.
I doubt he could have predicted our love
But now a choice I must make, or else I'll be judged.

Because you see my time is short.
That watch you rescued is more than for sport.
The name that's inscribed on the back that I showed you
Is my birth name, even though
I abandoned it for you.

So now, my dear love
I have made partly plain
The things that are done
That I can explain.

So Bailey, my dear one
will you still accept me?
And keep me so close
Even though scarred I may be?

Bailey: What's with all the rhyming?
And the really weird timing?
Oh great, now I'm doing it!
But for you I'm still pining.

I realize you're broken
you're just cute that way.
As for your past I don't care.
I still love you anyway.

...and that's all my brain can do right now. I was going to put in a verse about Sasha figuring it out, but right now I can't seem to do it without sounding too insulting.

Nice one, TheOne. It may well be where the plot goes. If rick has decided and isn't one who changes the plot if someone guesses(!)

Waking up, not safe in her bed,
Bailey looked at Pete and said
“King, honey, I know this ain't in my head,
The stuffed Turkey fills me with dread.”
She peered, trying to work him out
without having to raise her voice and shout
“King, honey, I know you have a secret
you should tell me if I won't regret.”
She hauled the sheets to cover her modesty
and looks on Pete as the great monstrosity
“King, honey, do what the psychosis said
and join me in shivering, here in our bed.”
“Don't hate the messenger,” says Pete,
“your world is ruined if I admit defeat.
It all now relies on your reluctant King
and whether or not he loves that ring...”

This, is likely going to end in tears......

Did I mention that I don't really take any of the Cosmic Nerds' sides? I mean, what would happen at the end of the game? What happens to the loser's avatar if his/her job is done? Would the loser's avatar die?

Although I'm a bit late for this, does anyone have a dislike for some of the Milton Ferrets? I mean, they basically just throw stuff around and SOMEHOW they stick for them, and in a good way for them!

Well, I guess it was time for someone besides Tarot to know Joel/King's terrible secret. He tried to tell Fox, who just walked away.

My brother had a dog who was a glistening hunk. He sure got attention wherever he went (and loved every minute of it).

Sabrina knows as well. Too bad Pete didn't pick Joey and/ or his creepy friends, they'd eat this stuff up.


King: I don't want her to know!
Pete: Fine! (Waves his wing and Bailey disappears, along with King's wedding band.) She no longer exists.
King: Ack! That's not what I meant! Bring her back now!
Pete: Oh, you humans, can't you ever make up your puny little minds?

King: - Baley, I'm a human turned into a dog against my will by this demon in front of you, I used to hate dogs due to some tragic past, so much that I made myself a living by kidnaping then for Peta. I even kidnaped Fox! Tried to take him away forever from this street. That demon in front of you knew of my dark heart so he wanted to turn me into his dark knight to lead his evil rpg army. Which by the way has now the rich ferret Keene, followers of a religion from which Zach is the High Priest and some dark monsters as members. As a dog I was tortured by this demon, and I also almost lost my soul which is this clock who was stolen from heaven. So if something destroy it I will cease to exist. There is also the fact that there is a japanese dragon deity living in this same street. Who loves penaut. And they togheter alreand traveled to another dimensions. Including one where dogs walk on four paws. Do you belive in me?

All this speculation about King revealing the truth to Bailey caused this little sequence to pop into my head.

Bailey: Wait, you were human once and Pete turned you into a dog? How is that even possible?
Pete: You really want to know?
Bailey: Yes, I want to know!
King: NOOOO!
*POOF*
Humanized Bailey: WHAT THE HACK?!

I really wouldn't put it past Pete to do something just like that either.

Maybe the win condition is to destroy the enemy temple.

There are five itens in the Game, the Players, the Avatars, the Monsters, the Temples and the Followers.

The players cast spells based on Mana. But they can't act too much.
The avatars cast spells based on Mana.
The monsters are summoned by the players based on Mana.
Followers grant Mana.
And the temples are the Main Bases.

Their first act in the game was to summon their temples. So it's the main objective.

(Also, I think that fits well, Pete choosing Lex Keene Luthor as his Avatar. He could now hire Bino too for his side)

I love that, for once, my speculations are alongside the lines of what everyone else is thinking.

Bailey's GOING to find out, I think. How that happens is debatable. How she'll react is also up for debate.

Ugh. My heart hurts too much to handle all of Pete's evil.
