So, Mr. Big Shot, have you not noticed the floating cart back there?

And the ominous clouds in the background ?

Also, I think he actually did notice it in panel two,
The question is - Did Tia notice it ?

Typo? “It’ll won’t cost much”

I do like how off guard the bandit keeps being by our heroes. It’s not what he’s used to I’ll bet.

Considering the "you on you on your way" as well, and the massive scar on his noggin, I just assumed he's not 'the brains' of the bunch.

It could also be View being not all there. You never know! Maybe this is all in our heads and when we look again tomorrow it won't be there.

I think it's vastly more likely that the bandit is just stupid.

Ah well, he's about to be in SO MUCH trouble, once our heroes starts to wind up.

I think that is a novel twist on an historical fact: Giving letters of Marque to bandits?

"A letter of marque and reprisal (French: lettre de marque; lettre de course) was a government license in the Age of Sail that authorized a private person, known as a privateer or corsair, to attack and capture vessels of a nation at war with the issuer. Once captured, the privateer could then bring the case of that prize before their own admiralty court for condemnation and transfer of ownership to the privateer. A letter of marque and reprisal would include permission to cross an international border to effect a reprisal (take some action against an attack or injury) and was authorized by an issuing jurisdiction to conduct reprisal operations outside its borders."

So this wolf knight is at war with everybody else on the road?

I think View just made an assumption regarding Privateers, that they were legally allowed to attack any ship they came across - which was not so, they are onlyallowed to attack ships flying the flag of a country the government that issued the letter of Marque is at war with... However, if you issue a formal warrant to your bandits authorising them to collect a "road tariff" from every traveller, then technically they cease being bandits and become customs agents!

An officially licensed bandit who insists that his prices are reasonable? Gives off kind of a Discworld vibe here!

There are reasons why this kind of approach is more common around here.

Hmmmmmm ...

Also, Guinevere is not to be seen in any frame of this page. (Nobody else not{ic}ed this?) I suppose she's manouevered to a vantage point to take action from at the right moment?



@Guest (Guest) :

Maybe he is the "brains" of the bunch as it were. Maybe they're overall far and away from being a brainy bunch? Or maybe their best choice for a front man isn't their head man.

Yeah, Guinevere is probably up to something.
Heck, I'm just happy that Tia put the cart down,
I was half expecting her to hit that guy with it.
So was he in panel two, I think. 😁

Knowing Guin, she's probably seducing the two female members of the bandit group...

As far as I am looking at it, Venne & Company need a new cart or chariot … and I think those "wolves" are about to loose one. 😁

At first I thought the mage levitated it but it seems more like she lifted the whole thing up from where she's gripping and quite frankly the strength of that wood is astonishing, if it was steel I'd expect it to bend under that sort of leverage.
