does this mean the old-timey voice is for show and not because of the swear filter?
I think he’s currently a bizarre fusion of Baron Mistycorn(tm) and Baron Mysticorn the sapient automaton.
I’m “hearing” the “Cool World” superhero voice- not classy enough for Powdered Toast Man. Uh, for Whimsy reasons, not Shaenon ones, of course.
They’re not the only ones…
Eh, his followers clearly aren’t D&D players. My annoyance is that she didn’t think to pack a shield. They obviously are hoping to get by on stealth so I won’t gripe too much over the fact she’s not using anything better then leather. It might not have been a bad idea if she and Nick had thought about crossbows as well either 😛
They didn’t get to pick their gear, otherwise Nick would have less hands and more rotors.
You seriously underestimate cured leather. Both its weight, and its ability to stop crossbow bolts at point blank distance.
Native American buffalo hide shields could often deflect bullets, at least before the explosion in Slaughter Tech from the Civil war onward.
Get better followers, Mistycorn. Lovelace’s outfit is awesome.
(I, uh, maybe have a thing for ladies with melee weapons.)
His followers would be happy if she wore nothing at all.
Sadly, men don’t make passes at women in cuirasses.
Maybe YOU don’t. I sure as hell would.
Meh. Live dangerously, or not at all.
Jeanne d’Arc had loads of followers.
Most of them weren’t following her to get into her cuirass.
Contemporary accounts seem to disagree.
I do and have.
You ain’t the only one, Mr. Campbell.
Why not whack Trexie and turn him/her into a love monster?
I wish people would stop asking me that…
I predict a Shrek manoeuvre – Baron probably fully expects to be amicably discussing the minutiae of Ironman’s various suits or something with Rex by the time they get back…
Is it just me, or is Baron Mistycorn’s mane becoming increasingly fabulous as the quest proceeds?
Maybe he’s coded with it; maybe it’s Manebelline.
Okay, I’ll acknowledge the pun (though the groan won’t be posted).
The way that T is positioned in the third panel makes it look like “doth” is underlined.
I’d be disappointed if that wasn’t on purpose.
How could Nick swear to reach the Tower if his swear filter is working?
Hold ‘em at bay, and swear you’ll reach the tower,
I’ll hold ‘em at bay and then you’ll think I’m brave, too.
I’ll listen to you moralize.
Pick on someone your size,
And lead him astray.
Hold ‘em at bay, my channel goes bananas.
I’ll hold ‘em at bay, but not to treat them cruelly.
Things will be fine
If we stick to the line
That we’re making our cases and being pugnacious to slay till they go away.
—from “Sit on Your Face,” which was funnier in their version…

By the way, it took me two passes through to decide how “hinders” was pronounced by Nick.
What did you decide on in the end? I have to admit that Nick’s word choice slightly impeded my attempt to understand the strip.
Then I got distracted by wondering where Lovelace’s new friend has gone.
It certainly hinders proper understanding.
Middle Ages English speakers were given to complaining about the strange and hard to follow Middle Age English used by their peers. Those discussions tended to follow the pattern of Bert and Ernie’s discussion of bananas in ears.
“I can’t hear you! Those bells are getting louder!”
“Well, you do sound just like the guy inside my head.”
It certainly didn’t help that they pronounced things differently in the neighbouring shire.
And that the grammairians were for a significant part irish…
