Well, this might be a tough fight if she doesn't get a bit of help.

Nope. Can't do giant bugs. The legs are so damn VIVID!

Really? And here I thought it didn't look insecty enough!

There's a fair amount of insects in this chapter.

I'm a little surprised by her bending over like that to get her staff in a possible emergency. I'd like to think one of the basic magic-user spells is a "Jedi style" come-to-me spell specifically keyed to their staff.

Riverfolk magicians don't have any real power or mana in and of themselves. They need inscribed metal rings and, sometimes, mana stones.

Is there any particular reason she doesn't wear for example rings and bracelets suitable for stuff like that then?
Mister Flames edit delete reply
I figure it's because she was just trying to sleep, and jewelry isn't comfortable. She was wearing her spell circles at the party, IIRC.

She's not really worried about being ambushed, especially not in a city. In the wild, she uses a warding circle that'd give her enough time to pick up her staff, so... she just isn't that worried.

Turns out she should have been a bit more worried, because someone is playing Ants in the backyard. :D

Giant cockroach a-la Men In Black!

Where are the rest of the knights and guards? Presumably fighting the other bugs?

Thinking about it, my guess that it was the river trolls wasn't actually that far off...!

OK, you got the flame for the melted butter. Who has the lemon slice the size of a Volvo?

I'm thinking that "FireBall" won't do a whole lot against a giant Fire Ant, so we might get to see a new spell, eh ?

Guinevere sure hopes so. :)

Heh, you definitely know how I think.

Plus, spells such as ice-spells look cool ! :)
