LOL here we all thought Tarot and Bailey were in danger. So essentially they have to wait for their "master" to decide a move, then excecute it then wait for the next command. LOL!

Least it seems theyre okay!

You know, I got to a point to where I felt like that in a lot of my games. Take Persona 3, for example;

Mission Control:"It's the Reaper!"
Me: (casts Armageddon)
9999 damage to Reaper.
Me: "Okay, move along."

Somewhere else now, deep in space
Pete''s desire to see Tarot as evil
is shown in Dragon glory on her face
and Bailey's now her true equal.
The intrigue of attack, defend and toss
keeps from her a truth odd and tragic.
She's facing Tarot, the green sides' boss,
why is the Baileyborg not facing magic?
Spells that blast and thoughts set on fire
the mind of little Tarot's her big gun
Why's Tarot texting and not showing ire?
Is the battle Pomeranian just having fun?

I have to admit that Tarot looks really cool. Even though I knew what this would be like, I'm still slightly disappointed that I was right about what this whole thing would add up to.

Neither of them is a dream sunderer.

That's Tarot's battle form. She doesn't have an avatar.

Wait, if Dragon loses (assuming Bailey is right), that means she has to join the cast on Earth! Return of her teenager form, anyone?

I like Tarot's battle appearance, especially with all the neon green patterns on her. I like how she's so used to turn based battles that she just sends texts mid-throw.

I wonder what her text messages look like: "Hey Peanut, crntly being thrwn atm. Shud b free after battle. Lv u! XOXOXO"

Actually, I would have to disagree with you. She would keep her normal form, most likely.

Nope. X3

Love how Tarot was drawn in the first panel. More because it's unexpected, but a characteristic I like to see I was figuring she would go all "pew pew", but instead she behaves more like a Druid.

Sooo... does this mean Tarot can transform into a bear? X3

I hope we get to see some interesting sub dialogue between peanut and tarot, that'd be funny ^^ This is shaping up to be an interesting outcome..

I understand that Dragon felt a bit jaded after Peanut unintentionally hurt her feelings. But ive been wondering if maybe at this point she has forgiven him. I wonder if she as well as Tarot are buying time to allow King and Fox to find them as a last effortto prove her love for Peanut. Just a thought. I imagine its really her caring for the mortals on eart as shes seemed relunctant to the duel from the start.

Im just glad that for the most part, Baily and Tarot seem to be unhurt. AND it seems Bailey got her bandanna.

Tarot is a mage. Therefore she can cast spells that affect herself and Bailey. I like the glowing furtoos as she goes back to normal. :)
There is always a mystical adventure awaiting you. You just have to find it and take the first step into epicness.
