Oooh. That bit in the next-to-last panel where her knees are sinking into the floor...very spooky.

I think the last panel, with the dripping drowned-looking face at kissing-distance, is even creepier-looking!

I'm not sure their drowning thing will be as effective on land

Okay, there's the cyanotic fingers around Tia's neck. And the creepy last two frames.

Can somebody please explain again why we prefer drowny ghosts to horny ghosts??

Because Venne doesn't like people chained up ?

Yeah, sex slavery is practically never good.
A Whole lotta splashing is about to happen, I'd guess.
On a side not, I've never been able to shout 'N' very loudly... VENNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!

Yeah, that Magus is in trouble.
Though he might be plenty powerful to handle that.

… unless all of his spirit was drained by spirit hookers … that would be a shame.

None of that explains how drowny ghosts are preferable to horny ghosts.

Just a little bit longer for the ghost reprogramming to be permanent. Did it occur to none of you that a volunteer could be employed till the task was finished? Surely somebody could be found who'd be happy to finish the job. Perhaps Guin might enjoy that? Or Tia.

She could get all civic minded and shit. Like sacrifice a week or two "for the sake of the good people of this land." And have a whole lot of fun doing it. 😏

Yeah, but you wouldn't chain up a volunteer.

I get what ShoShone is saying, it would be real neat if you could re-program the spirit into a horny one on a permanent basis.
I'm just not sure it is doable, if it was he wouldn't need to chain up the focus lady in the first place .. right ?

That's an assumption. And I didn't see any chains on her. But, compulsory or voluntary, some confinement seems to be necessary due to the situation of being constantly hopped up on tattergold/paraphasma. It is an ordeal.

No. Consider other possibilities as well. It could be he didn't want to be bothered with seeking out a volunteer. Or seeking out a civic minded volunteer would put the place too much into the public eye and would get into politics. Some notice is needed but he might want to keep it more to being on the down low. Or he just finds it distasteful getting involved in the local politics. Or he doesn't want his privacy compromised. Also, we don't really know the magus didn't have some sort of agreement with the focus lady and compensation given. The plank across her door seems to indicate involuntary confinement and is most likely the author's intent. But not necessarily so. It could be terms of an agreement due to circumstances. (Albeit, view hasn't corrected anybody on the sex slave presumption.)

But this is all speculative.

They enslaved the drowny spirits. Sewed the pool, and now they'll reap the whirlpool. Go drowny spirits!

That would be appropriate, if such spirits could discern or discriminate. But, as the author has prior informed us, they do not think at all. Tia didn't deserve icy fingers to go around her neck.

I love how Tia once again demonstrates that ignorance is bliss. To quote the late Neil Innes, "How sweet to be an idiot."

That is a sweet, sweet song, though.
