Previous TBFGK 55 Next TBFGK 57 [edit]


Panel 1

A scene of a bat flying over the trees, as the head of a yellow dwagon pops up toward it (resembling the iconic image from Jaws[1] of the shark swimming upward toward a doomed swimmer). At the sides, a pink dwagon and a purple can be seen still nestled in the tree cover.[edit]
Vinny Doombats: Yep, lost it. [edit]

Panel 2

Vinny faces toward Ansom. One eye is scrunched almost closed, suggesting a wince at witnessing the loss of his bat.[edit]

Vinny Doombats: That's six. It's a full circle.

Prince Ansom: Sorry, Count. But we had to know.

Vinny Doombats: Oh I agree, yer Honor.
[edit]

Panel 3

A map is seen from overhead, consisting of a grid of variously colored hexes. Through the middle is a long line of tan hexes, containing miscellaneous colored markers -- evidently the tan hexes are the main road, and the markers represent the units of the allied column. To the sides of the tan pathway are hexes in various shades of green, generally darker with increasing distance from the column. There are a few markers in the light-green hexes near the column, but most of the green hexes are empty. However, a clump of dark green hexes contains a ring of counters -- the "full circle" described by Vinny. The hexes at a distance from the column and the center hex of the ring are cloudy white... unexplored territory.[edit]
Vinny Doombats: That far hex was weak, though. Stack had only three dwagons, a yellow, a purple, and a pink. [edit]

Panel 4

Ansom stands near the map. In the background, Vinny's coffin can be seen standing in front of one of the tents of Ansom's encampment.[edit]

Prince Ansom: That is sensible.

He has tilted his strength to the side of the formation which faces us.

The easiest side for us to attack.
[edit]

Panel 5

The Unaroyal Warlord from Ansom's inner circle comments.[edit]

Unaroyal Warlord: Should we attack?

Can we not just push on toward the city?
[edit]

Panel 6

Ansom leans over the map, pointing at the circle, as several of his inner circle look on.[edit]

Prince Ansom: *sigh*

We surmise that the wounded dwagons Stanley withdrew had low remaining move.

They needed a safe hiding place.

Hence, this fort formation.

Three warlords, and as many as two dozen heavily wounded dwagons are lurking in that base hex.
[edit]

Panel 7

The Hobbittm Warlord from Ansom's inner circle crosses her arms, looking distinctly displeased.[edit]

Prince Ansom: If we allow those dwagons to heal at dawn, they will again hit the column with the same tactic. With more than twice the force.

Hobbittm Warlord: We lost more than 40 percent of our siege.
[edit]

Panel 8

Ansom is just visible at the left edge of the panel, as he talks to the headband-wearing man from his inner circle.[edit]

Prince Ansom: We could lose the rest.

This turn's losses will look small, if we do nothing.

Sofa King Warlord: Air cover?

Vinny Doombats: Not a lotta that can reach.
[edit]

Panel 9

A scene of Jillian seated, or more precisely slumped, on the back of a grounded gwiffon. She practically radiates boredom and frustration.[edit]

Prince Ansom: Commander Zamussels is requesting to return to the column, but only she and five top gwiffons, plus Charlie's Archons, have the move to reach the center of that hex.

I will hold her in reserve.
[edit]

Panel 10

Vinny is leaning forward with his arms down, presumably braced on the map table.[edit]

Prince Ansom: Our forest units will attack. We'll swing around behind, and punch through the weak hex.

Vinny Doombats: Uhhhh...

That'll eat up about all or our move, boss.
[edit]

Panel 11

Ansom, the Unaroyal Warlord, and Vinny continue discussing the plan.[edit]

Prince Ansom: It will.

But we must conserve our limited forces, to take on the base hex.

Unaroyal Warlord: Will we have enough?

Against a score of dwagons, and three warlords?

Vinny Doombats: Dwagons with just a few hits left.
[edit]

Panel 12

Ansom holds the Arkenpliers in front of him, a slight grin on his face.[edit]

Prince Ansom: Indeed.

And three uncroaked warlords.
[edit]
