It might be a bit too early to decide this particular church inquisitor is a jerk.

Still... It's interesting that she has this strong of a reaction, and that it's ok to express such a reaction towards an inquisitor...

I'm guessing knights have a problem with inquisitors. Or has Guin pissed them off somehow?

Inquisitors are rarely popular with anyone except their superiors. And even they might not actually like them much.

It's the age old question of who makes custard for the custard makers! (Quis custodiet ipsos custodes - Who watches the watchmen?)

Is their cart being pulled by...giant sloths?

I wager walking would probably be faster

Yes, those are giant sloths. Past pages established them as fairly normal draft animals. From the looks of it, what they lack in speed, they make up in their ability to haul heavy loads.

Mind you, its the job of the main characters to travel about to fix and maintain large magic disks that are used to keep monsters out of villages. Those disks are fairly heavy.

So long as you have nothing you need to take along. If I've a cartload of Stuff and Things that I require, sloths it is. And I can sleep in the back when someone else is driving.

Walking is also about as fast as horse-drawn carriage rides at typical speed. The main advantage is that ... you don't have to walk.

Anyway, sloths are faster than snails and need less water in these climates.

(incidentally, there actually were elephant-sized sloths back in prehistoric days so it's not even as crazy as this looks ^^)

Walking is faster than driving in most cities these days, but people still drive. In fact, it's because everyone drives that walking is actually faster!

The advantage to riding in any sort of transportation, be it sloth, horse or petrol-powered, is that regardless of how quickly you get there, you do eventually get there, and are not totally exhausted.

As a side note, is that a riding sloth tied to the cart?

I'm just giggling to myself at the mental image of a sloth cavalry charge!!!

Although... Previously there was only one. What if it didn't survive, but was replaced by a few other ones?
