360 no scope
Welcome back Readers, When we last left our band of brave warriors, they had just gnarfled the garthok and were amassing their ships to conquer earth….. *loud bangs and crashes*
Really? Come on!
What? Oh right, that’s Coneheads… my bad sorry… It’s been a long month..
When we last left our intrepid band of explorers they were pinned down by a sniper. Ceres had just kept Ophi from becoming a bit more holy than anyone but Bleu and the Sniper would want. Meanwhile underneath our newly acquired fort, the brave Mushies continued to explore the deep dark caves.
As Wendy arrives at the Fort, from deep down in the depths of the caves word has come back that our brave Mushies and their leafling escorts have managed to find something interesting, I do wonder what it could be?
The Mushies have reported that a creature, albeit not aggressive towards them, stands firm in it’s defence of this new discovery, what sort of creature I wonder?
Wendy is led by the mushies to the chamber that they discovered containing the mysterious object and creature. Could our top heavy druid be in for more than she’s prepared for? Time for some druidic investigation! That you’ll see …. NEXT TIME On Dragon ball z…. wait no… Either way.. next time.
So… maybe you can allow us to use this space
Yes! we got the results of our spy shroom name poll!
And here it is!
… mush? mush?
Oooh, so you don’t like “Steve”?
What if we give you the title of the second most voted name?
Mush ! Muuuush! *happy fungal noises*
Ok, so Steve the Ghost cap it is!
Meanwhile on the trip to the smugglers den.
Yes well the readers decided for a Brothel instead of a forge to make weapons, so that sort of shuts that down.
Oh right… I’m not even in the group…. damn it… MAKE INFORMED DECISIONS readers.. Not just TnA!
Guess it’s time to use all that skill Ophi cultivated as a tavern owner , maybe put those big bunny bewbs to good use.
Right, well I guess it’s worth a shot…
Probably the wrong time to use that terminology
Hey Sniper! How about we talk this out? First rounds on me. second and third rounds on the old man!
Maybe some “Alone” time? A nice back massage? A Cookie?”
Ok, that didn’t work!
That has to be the loudest arrow I’ve ever heard, seriously, what archer makes this much commotion
Yeah silly, those aren’t arrows, they’re bullets, you know… From a gun?
Gun? What is this gun you speak of?
Well old man it’s been around a few hundred years. They came up with an explosive powder, and then someone else came up with an idea to put it in a tube and stuff a projectile down it, and a bunch of other technical jargon I’m not privy to,
but over the last few centuries people have made guns that can shoot VERY far, and VERY accurately, and someone RIGHT NOW is using one to try and kill us!
We must research these new weapons, add them to our arsenal.
Not really much to research, we can just BUY them.. They’re pretty well researched.
Yes, well to buy anything requires gold, and we’re a little short on that, and in any case.
THAT WON’T HELP US NOW!
Jeeze, they didn’t have all this stuff in our time, just magic and mayhem
if it’s such an Elite weapon, then why aren’t we hit yet.
Well you deflected the last few bullets, and we’re sort of cowering behind rocks.
Come on team no need to discuss this now, we need a new plan!
That really isn’t all that helpful, probably a little to extreme, and yeah we’re not in the business of killing in this comic
Ahh famous last words
Oh boy a railgun!
Yeah we don’t have that.. or, in fact, ANY Mushies either. And no I’m not shooting Mushies at a sniper!
Finally an idea I can get behind!
Better behind than in front, but…
we dont have any troops with us!
That’s a good plan, we just need to get a whole lot closer to the sniper to pull that off!
Also yes.. It’s part of the armor. A very useful part of it…
That’s a little…ewww…
but it’s still a good idea.
Sadly each of these spells is sort of a one shot and done, if you cast diamond on someone with invisibility they become visible, but diamond skinned, they don’t really stack.
And we’re nowhere near close enough to use the paralyzer spell. We’d need to get much closer.
We… We need a distraction. Something that’ll let us get closer and flank the sniper.
Coming right up!
IN a flash our good girl blinks the puppy out of sigh!
Wait don’t I have a say in……
No time for discussion, Away you go!
No time like the present
Just like with our transparent pup, our busty bunny is gone in a flash using her invisibility spell!
In what is most likely the most organized plan they’ve managed to come up with since this all started, an invisible pup is flung towards the sniper!
Ready as I’ll ever be!
Guessing none of you had Flying Doggo as an answer, jackpot to the house! With all her strength Ceres launches Mordred towards the sniper. Not unlike tossing the giant rocks of the icy land she grew up in!
Ok I’m going!
So am I!
Like hell you’re not you’re a sitting duck with as large a target as you are, stay here and protect Sapphire!
I’ll cover you all as best I can!
Using her bunny speed, festooned with the old man Ophi makes a break toward the direction of the shots, will she make it in time?
Our pup lands right on target thanks to Ceres’s accuracy. She quickly makes her way to the snipers last known position
Oh boy , a new mouse toy to play with!
As Mordred approaches the position she’s confused by the sniper’s decoy, her confusion also makes her invisibility fail.
IT’S A TRAP!
She’s firing RUNE BULLETS Mordred be car….
With a burst of bunny speed Ophi races towards Mordred, quickly trying to assess her condition. Her mind racing, she also loses her invisibility.
Oh my god, Mordred!
She shot me…
She shot me right in the boob! That mousey bitch!
Puppers, are you hurt bad?
No Bunny butt, I’m okay , sure felt like something helped though
You have a kind of… Death knight necrotic aura for defense. Sort of like a personal shield..
But it sure wasn’t meant for these… Bullets. We need to retreat!
Our brave team of adventurers retreats into any cover they can find.
Oh gosh doggo, are you okay?
Very brave Mordred , I’m proud of you, glad you’re okay!
It was a trap, she left a fake set of ears!
This sniper… She’s using magic to aim the bullets, that’s cheating!!
She lured us there.
Stay on guard, she can be anywhere, and now she’s shooting around things!
The team holds it’s position, time passes but nothing else happens, the attack has ceased.
We can’t move out yet, none of us have the mana to use the spells we’d need to protect ourselves, Invisibility takes time!
Oh that’s the last thing we need, A sniper AND a Ninja!
This isn’t an ambush, she’s trying to test out skills, see what we’re able to do.
She’s got her information, now it’s time to make it useless, we need to prepare better, we need to learn new skills!
Right! Lets make our way down, but stay alert!
I can’t believe we fell for it, gah, I’m so angry right now
Calm down, we’ll get more on our side, they’ve only seen so much.
Well what they’ve seen is still a lot.. They know we can go invisible, they know we can’t fight back at range, they know WAY too much!
Yes, and now we can’t use ANY of it to enter the city, we’re back to square one.
Lets rest, we can take cover in the small forest on the way to my contact, it’ll be very hard for a sniper to maintain operational efficiency there.
That’s a big word Boobs Bunny
Not now old man… Speaking of boobs.
I’ll be okay , I just can’t believe that rodent shot me in the boob!
As the team prepares to leave the cover of the forest, one last check before darting toward the direction of the smuggler’s den.
We’re getting really close to the smuggler’s den, I’m picking up all sorts of smells I had hoped I’d never smell again.
The hideout is inside a canyon. It opens up towards the edge of the island to keep them in cover.
As the team uses a mostly hidden passage in the middle of the canyon a huge shape appears. Coming into view the sheer mass of the merchant ship can be felt as the team nears it! It’s mooring nearly invisible to the naked eye.
There it is!
