Unless these "Tolot Blisters" can put some serious hurt on the Umiak, it looks like Winter Tide's about to buy the farm.

I guess you could call it "command tension" between Stillstorm and Ashrain?


Your sure i said that? Buy the farm is an expression i didn't even know (and still don't know precisely what it mean other than a bad thing) Also there less orthographic / grammatical error than usual (was i drunk and if so, am better in english when am drunk?) i think it more of a missquote :P *watch your fir...eee quoting*


Yeap, you did just check out this http://www.well-of-souls.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=21

and I ran a spell check on the post, so their less errors . . . hope you don't mind

Its hard to estimate because the webcomic is composed of still pictures. But how long do the beams last (or pulse) for when fired? The lasers would tend to "flicker" on and off while shooting at different targets. The split beam seems to convey this. But the other beam weapons like the plasma focus and blasters are all depicted as solid beams. Additionally the pulse cannon sometimes has visible bulges along its beam. It easiest to see this when the Tempest is firing. Is this where the name came from?

I don't think that Arioch has ever explicitly stated what the etymology of the pulse cannon is.

The lasers pulse for a fraction of a second, but between the three barrels in one mount, the fire is nearly continuous.

The other beams will last for a few seconds at most.

The pulse cannon is so-named because it's a pulsed version of the plasma focus. It sends superheated plasma down a carrier beam, but in discrete pulses rather than in a continuous jet like the regular plasma focus.

Having rough 3D models to use for perspective reference doesn't hurt. ;)

Smug indeed. I can just imagine what kind of supercilious and condescending remark she's going to make. Maybe I'm wrong, though; maybe Ashrain is a perfectly wonderful CO.

ohh :o Nice, I must say your still draw amazing either way.
I also like the full pic of the characters in the WIP as you get more of the body language. too bad you can't have the full pic ( IE cutting and editing frames)

Also, nice views of the back of Umiak H-cruiser type

page 83 going to be another jaw dropper

I wonder if Loroi get attached to their ships, or if they are just vehicels to them. How much are they like us and how much are they not like us

Ah I apologize, the battle just got me thinking about it is all, I figured Beryl had friends on the Winter Tide, actually page 83 seems to have answerd my question of their similarity to humans personality wise.

hi hi

I have a feeling that the damage is much worse on the inside than it is on the outside, given plasma's tendency to expand. Hopefully there will still be some survivors that can be rescued before the ship needs to be scuttled. (At least thats what I am guessing will happen.)

I'm sure you're right, of course, considering how much Winter Tide was smoking on the last page.

edit* - And I withdraw my comment about Ashrain; it was without foundation or cause.

still not sure about that, as comment here or the page 82 or 81 topics (can't remember for the life of me) we haven't seen how a lorio ships can take hits nor how their Damage control SOP's work out.

for the looks of it, Winter Tide damage is

the main hull four hits: only lost is starboard side PD lasers, maybe the port side too.

the starboard engines are out, no word on the power status (but, using the tempest systems pic both main power bus might have been hit, since the turrets are in the same position when the tide was hit repeatedly )

shields are out ( if no very low)

as for the interior damage, icekatze might be right, but I'm sure the Loroi have a compartmentalization-like system on this ships.

One way or another, I have a feeling that Winter Tide's not going to be walking away from this one. Limping, maybe.

She looks...perturbed.

Maybe deciding fate of Winter Tide?

Doesn't she always look that way? :P

More seriously, she may be ordering them not to pursue the Umiak, for fear of running into the rest of the Umiak force.
