8 o’clock Central European time… NaV time! Nothing…? REFRESH! Ah there it is :).

Mr. Smug saves the day!(?) And has a slave trade hobby…?
Too bad Danny, you lost a chance to score some points there.

Pashmina

Whoa, bandid is going to play the evil dude? 😮 (lol, the evil dude.. krrrhrhrhr)

Neon5162

So 2 votes evil 2 votes good and it’s up to the dude to decide good or evil

Chikai

We’re doomed.

Richelle

Wow! 2 people on the team aren’t looking very heroic right now. This is looking a little bit like a villain team.

Beautiful work as always, Aneeka ^_^

bobby

it could be implied that the group is goin to be neutrally both good and evil

Tre

Only Jane and Bandit are looking villainish. we haven’t even seen Dude, Kleya was picking weeds last we saw and poor Danni is moving slightly faster in the mist than the speed of smell. So the rest of them we have no idea what they are gonna go for in alignment.

Chad

Oh, you tricky tricky author you. I wonder what kind of skills the kid has.

Lukkai

Now did he really ask for the kid in exchange or did we cut to one of the other group members in the last panel? (Which would have to be the Dude finally getting into motion or Kat, considering Danni hasn’t reached the island yet and we already know Jane’s ‘solution’.) With no real idea as to what kind of statement we just caught the end of.

Strange

It would be funny if the dude didn’t get any alignment and the group ended up somewhere in the middle. That would also make them more interesting because everyone will be watching to see what they do

Feartheswans

I’m waiting for the dude to wipe on the level 1 fiendi.

Rosebud

It took me several reads to realize the second panel is the Bandit, not Danni. And that it means we actually will see more Danni.

DeColuvj

He’s going to eat the kid!

Tre

yummy! young and tender long pork!

Marscaleb

Well, I’ll be in the area, so I’ll come by and say hi.

Cherry14

So I’m guessing that when each one of them enter the island, it starts itself over so you have the same choices. Question: why did thebandit/ jane both go for the kid?

Aslandus

It’s probably his awesome hat

Silver

Point taken

Tre

Obviously the kid does/has something that makes having him useful.

Silver

C’mon is the kid worth money or somthing?

istolethisname

there in different game worlds. they are all in the same game but in different scenarios of the game. that’s why the NPC lady is still alive where bandit is. i believe there being “tested” to see what they would do as individuals. as if the game itself is “alive” & finding out what there true character is.

Feartheswans

I will name him George, and I will hug him and pet him and squeeze him… and pat him and pet him and… and rub him and caress him and…

Tre

Not be creepy at all?

Elizabeth

Ok, color me confused. I thought Bandit would at least make an attempt at looking like a good guy… I’m just imagining the expression on Sandra’s face right now. “Great. I’ve got a cheat code expert, a crazy axe murderess, a slowpoke who can’t figure out how to navigate, a child slaver, and a lazy do-nothing. Just how am I supposed to sell advertising for this crew???” (Hint to Sandra– pitch them as a sitcom.)

Lukkai

Actually that would be a great group to sell. There would certainly be no dull minute with those characters piled upon each other.

As for how successful they would be in terms of solved quests… That’s a wholly different kettle of fish!

Horatio Von Becker

Yes. Yes it would. Be very fun, that is. My first thought was that Bandit is joking, though.

Tre

Doubtful. I really think the kid has some value we will learn later. Its how you approach getting him that gives you a jump to alignment in that part of the tutorial.
Assuming you do get him. I have doubts about Danni. She will likely do something random.

Cereal

Whoa. Pedo alert

Hanna

Annnnd once more I don’t like Bandit. Not so much for demanding the kid as payment, rather than demanding a payment at all.

Remember what Kleya whispered to Danni when the tutorial was about to start, of how helping the villagers got you some help back. Maybe the kid is the helper you can gain for the rest of the tutorial.

Tre

Or you can just con/steal him, but if you wanna be a good person you should help the villagers.

Adon

Bandit is definitely one of the most ambiguous characters in the comic, that’s for sure. He seems to teeter-totter between ‘oh, he’s not that bad’ and ‘complete douchebag’. He definitely seems to be in jerka** mode right now.

Elizabeth
On reflection, about the only way I can think of Bandit’s actions being “good” is if the island is about to blow up anyway, and he can only take one person away. But he still comes off pretty badly in this scene. I know Aneeka is very good at character twists, so I’m waiting to see how this is really going to resolve… Bandit and Jane are both very well aware that “the world is watching,” so whatever they’re doing, it’s playing to the crowd, somehow. And Bandit, in particular, is playing a new character (as mentioned earlier by Dr.… Read more »
