    “The gods do not doubt your courage, and they do not require your death.” Wow. Man, Ursula, how do you do it?

  2. Ravyn says:

    So few words. So well chosen. Excellent as always.

  3. Aria says:

    Now that’s a god I could respect.

  4. Atre says:

    Ursula’s style and drama with gods and the supernatural is fantastic, if she ever writes her own universe & mythology a la tolkien I’ll be the first to buy it.

  5. Mordecai says:

    The Statue’s dialogue really floored me, especially that last phrase. I mean, I’m used to him being surprisingly wise, for lack of a more specific word, but this is amazing.

  6. Barry says:

    No. 1: Vote from Atre’s link.

    No. 2: Isn’t this the first time we’ve ever seen something happen that Digger wasn’t around for? We’ve always seen action where she is, and not where she isn’t.

  7. Hunter says:

    I wonder how long Murai will be able to last. She only has the use of one arm, remember.

  8. Sarah says:

    Barry — no, we’ve seen one or two other shots like that, such as the cold servants coming out of the tunnel for the first time.

    And that last line…wow.

  9. JewelWolf says:

    I’m getting ready for an amazing inspiring fight scene betwen Murai and Jhalm.

  10. Marie says:

    There is amazing pathos in Murai’s pose in the first scene. So simple, but it says so much.

  11. Mani says:

    Also, who was it saying “It is time, Murai” in the previous page? That wasn’t the statue’s textbox style. Jhalm there already?

  12. Lanthir says:

    The Gods and anyone else would be fools to doubt Murai’s courage. She may be a bit of a crazy-bucket, but what she lacks in sanity she more than makes up for in bravery. I really hope nothing bad happens to that kid.

  13. Hawk says:

    I love that line too…

    I wonder if those of us that are gamers begged hard enough, would Ursula allow the creation (or better yet help create!) an RPG based in Digger’s world??

    I want to fight vampire squash and ride trolls!!

  14. brushtail says:

    got that kid? god said don’t get killed.

  15. wombat32 says:

    why did I suddenly have a Monty Python flashback?

    “For if you do doubt your courage, come no further, for DEATH awaits you all with nasty sharp pointy teeth.”

  16. Emma says:

    OMG i see a cool fight in the near future

  17. Tindi says:

    Hopefully, Murai manages to do SOMETHING to change Jhalm’s mind. I can’t shake the feeling that he’d be a powerful ally if someone could convince him to listen for a change. And, as we found out waaaaay back when Murai was fairly new to us, Jhalm is capable of regret, especially as it applies to Murai. I’m ambling through the archives yet again, so I was reminded of this.

  18. Tindi says:

    Oh (sorry for the double comment), and Digger is back up to 32! Keep voting!

  19. Trogdog says:

    Broken arm or no, she’ll go for as long as she needs to once she hits psychopath dark mother mode.

  20. @Barry. I seem to remember at one point, Digger had been ranting at Ganesh about the chance to go home or stay and help Murai. Ganesh affirmed that it was within Digger’s right to go home. Of course Our brave, Wombat decided the harder of the two roads, to stay and help Murai. Right after Digger stalked out, we got a one frame shot of Ganesh saying “Heh.” Almost a, “Got ya sucker.” As an aside I’m sure it would not go amiss if a certain statue was to turn a little more God and a little less statue for the moment. Wait where’d the shrew go again?

  21. Lunar-Music says:

    Murai looks really young in that second panel. I mean, she is young, but she’s usually so incredibly poised and enigmatic enough that it’s hard to put any concrete age on her.

  22. Otookee says:

    The shrew went to fetch the hyenas. Which could turn very bloody. I hope not – I would like Grim Eyes and Boneclaw Mother to survive…

  23. If Ed is to receive redemption it will have something to do with Grim Eyes I’m pretty sure. Don’t forget to vote.

  24. JewelWolf says:

    I’d like to make an announcement. The social networking and forums-based website, gaiaonline, has released a wombat item for members’ avatars! If any other Digger readers are gaians, get that item.

  25. Ellie says:

    @Atre It’s called Gearworld, and it’s on LiveJournal for free.

  26. Dee says:

    I don’t remember.. who’s Jhalm again?

  27. BunnyRock says:

    @Hawk, considering Murai started her Life in a MUD, an RPG should not be too far for her. Besides… squash vs trolls? Better call in some flying-rat cavalry and ocular slugs to help you out!
