And I'm back in action!

2-2: Duty Bound

Abrecan is so devoted to his role as knight, that he'd even endure Alaron's bullshit if his King ordered it. But that doesn't mean he wants to.

2-3: Curses!

I don't know what Alaron meant in that panel where Rheda calls him a nuisance. I think he misunderstood her insult, but I have no idea what he thought she said. :s

2-4: A Friendly Interlude

No time to talk! Guess he'll have to visit Brenna again later...

2-5: Fight Another Day

Was that a dirty joke, Sheridan? In an N64 game, no less?

We'll get that fight out of you someday...

2-6: The Old Weapons Master

And here's the only new character we're meeting this chapter. His name's been dropped a few times already, but he's really not that important. He knows a bit of Gwernian history, though. Can we just acknowledge what a cool name Griktikal is?

2-7: Momentary Meeting

And here's the game's first reference to Aspect. Let me break this down real easy for you: Aspect is determined by the time of day you were born. If day, you're solar, if not, you're lunar. Aspect affects your ability to function normally; solars perform better during the day, while lunars are more affected by the phase of the moon.

In-game, all this means is you shouldn't battle at night because all your actions will probably fail.

2-8: Banter with Bowden

Bowden, row 6, panels 2&3: me talking about my hobbies to literally anyone.

Circumstance penalty for being the bard.

Super not suspicious at all how worried everyone in the castle is about Alaron talking to Oriana.

Not even slightly. She's definitely just a crazy old forest hag and not relevant for any other reason.

2-9: Godric Could Go

Well, there's one willing participant. The better question is, should Godric go?

2-10: Mysterious Mirari Magic

When Gechina says Mirari magic is "all one," she means her people don't follow the concept of the four schools. That's a human distinction. Not that it helps Alaron's trouble at all.

2-11: The Last Candidate

As you can see, this adventure is off to the best possible start.

I like how this conversation shows the other side of something Abrecan mentioned earlier. I think that was a nice touch on the part of the writers. Alaron's reaction to it is completely different, too.

2-12: More Fascinating Lectures

Of course the only character who wants to go is the only one who can't. It's just great like that. Have a heap of lore while you're at it.
