Woo ... something is about to hit something .. and I'm not talking about a fan! :D

What is a DAS treshold btw ?
I'm guessing it would be something akin to a humans pain threshold ?
Centcomm 21st Apr 2013, 8:00 PM edit delete reply

the DAS or Damage assesment system is like our pain feedback system - in this case Ceci's has been set to WAY above superhuman she could punch a tank and not even feel it. although she might shatter every bone in her hand and they are made of carbon nanofiber so they dont break easy.

This won't end well...for hat/jacket/face scarf guy >:D

It's Dr. Peyton Westlake aka. DarkMan. :P
ranger_brianna_new 21st Apr 2013, 8:09 PM edit delete reply

This seems like the perfect place to quote Jesse Wales. :P
Centcomm 21st Apr 2013, 8:52 PM edit delete reply

awww you left out the quote...
SpaceMonkey 23rd Apr 2013, 10:19 PM edit delete reply

Well.... I think this one suits the situation well enough:

Josey Wales: Buzzards gotta eat too.
Draginbeard 21st Apr 2013, 8:33 PM edit delete reply

This might not even take a whole page to resolve. Hell, if either Dolly or Ce had been wearing a flea collar, this fight would be over already!
Centcomm 21st Apr 2013, 8:53 PM edit delete reply

so very true,. collars kill parasiytes
cattservant 21st Apr 2013, 9:19 PM edit delete reply

You slipped one in on me!
Thank you!
Centcomm 21st Apr 2013, 9:31 PM edit delete reply

why your very welcome :D
cattservant 21st Apr 2013, 9:44 PM edit delete reply

Is the guy with the handgun in panel 2 a mutant?
Centcomm 21st Apr 2013, 9:45 PM edit delete reply

why do you ask? hes actually wearing Mesh armor similar to the gutters at the beginning of the comic.
cattservant 21st Apr 2013, 9:52 PM edit delete reply

No doubt it's just back ground, but it looks like* he has extra fingers.

[It would be a good idea for CeCi to have a pistol.]

*(To me.)
Sheela 21st Apr 2013, 10:31 PM edit delete reply

I doubt New Rome would allow a sentient android with a Gun.
cattservant 21st Apr 2013, 10:37 PM edit delete reply

By the time they do get to Nova Roma, their reputation is going to proceed them...
Sheela 22nd Apr 2013, 9:47 AM edit delete reply

Not if they kill the bearer of news first. :)
velvetsanity 22nd Apr 2013, 2:25 PM edit delete reply

The shadows (and the design of the gun) are playing tricks on your eyes, catt
cattservant 22nd Apr 2013, 4:16 PM edit delete reply

Well they are old and easy to fool!
sigpig 16th Jul 2015, 9:01 AM edit delete reply

That's. What. She. Said...
Mayyday 21st Apr 2013, 10:30 PM edit delete reply

This is why Ceci needs a gun.
Centcomm 22nd Apr 2013, 7:40 AM edit delete reply

yes she does..although shes not totally unarmed >_<
Sheela 22nd Apr 2013, 10:09 AM edit delete reply

Not only is she armed, she's dualwielding !!
One arm attached to each shoulder socket ! :)
cattservant 22nd Apr 2013, 10:31 AM edit delete reply

She will get her kicks too!
CyberSkull 22nd Apr 2013, 1:03 AM edit delete reply

Remember kids, it's good wasteland etiquette to loot the bodies that you kill. To do otherwise would be wasteful!
Centcomm 22nd Apr 2013, 7:41 AM edit delete reply

ouch.. bad pun is bad ... :D but good advice
rfaramir 22nd Apr 2013, 11:30 AM edit delete reply
Makes me wonder if these guys have identifiable loot from Lynn's father still on them?
Maybe not if they got away with their lives but had no time to loot him.
CyberSkull 22nd Apr 2013, 2:56 PM edit delete reply

I don't think these are the same guys.
Centcomm 22nd Apr 2013, 6:26 PM edit delete reply

Remember this is 15 years later...
LooeyQ 22nd Apr 2013, 5:01 AM edit delete reply

Im clenching my toes in anticipation! I think next page someones getting a blast to the face!
Centcomm 22nd Apr 2013, 7:41 AM edit delete reply

yes we are actually going to have a actual fight !
KarToon12 22nd Apr 2013, 7:09 AM edit delete reply

This is NOT going to end well...for those loud mouths that is...XDXD
Centcomm 22nd Apr 2013, 7:42 AM edit delete reply

oh I think they picked the wrong pair to try and shake down...
cattservant 22nd Apr 2013, 8:23 AM edit delete reply

Didn't their remote ancestors work in Lunar air locks?
Centcomm 22nd Apr 2013, 9:36 AM edit delete reply

they proably did >_<
Sheela 22nd Apr 2013, 10:10 AM edit delete reply

Some of them did, others were just .. contemplating space while drifting off .. into space after engaging a malfunctioning air-lock. :D
Dragonrider 22nd Apr 2013, 8:44 AM edit delete reply

Back--kinda still using office komputer PLEASE warn if next NSFW..looks like it goes down just like we thought. Wham-Bam good-bye ma'am.
Centcomm 22nd Apr 2013, 9:12 AM edit delete reply

do you mean nudity or voilence because tomrrow will be voilent... :D
Sheela 22nd Apr 2013, 10:11 AM edit delete reply

Wouldn't both be NSFW ?
cattservant 22nd Apr 2013, 10:21 AM edit delete reply

Are you old enough to remember when sex was taboo and violence was glorified?
Sheela 22nd Apr 2013, 6:04 PM edit delete reply

Erh .. don't they still do that in US media ?
cattservant 22nd Apr 2013, 8:09 PM edit delete reply

They are generally moving toward escalating equilibration.
Dragonrider 23rd Apr 2013, 5:59 AM edit delete reply

Nuditiy, violence is a day to day thing
Centcomm 23rd Apr 2013, 11:19 AM edit delete reply

no nudity planned .. unless you count internal organs as nude >_<
Sheela 23rd Apr 2013, 9:24 PM edit delete reply

Ew ... internal organs are not sexy out in the open. :(
Rashala 22nd Apr 2013, 1:45 PM edit delete reply

*predicts.......Loudmouth with gun up Shot first....through face...... then guy to his left......then right..... while Ceci Pounds hat boy inot a pink puddle
Centcomm 22nd Apr 2013, 1:46 PM edit delete reply

what made you choose that piticular order?
TimeStop 22nd Apr 2013, 2:38 PM edit delete reply
I thought that was the common order of things, shoot the guy with the gun raised first then follow up with the other two by annoyance again while Ceci pounds the guy with the hat into paste
Rashala 22nd Apr 2013, 6:25 PM edit delete reply

Simple logic.

in combat you ALWAYS take out the A-hole with the weapon most ready to fire. then the next two armed targets... THEN....whoever has not had a gun up your partner usually engages in hand to hand to prevent them from going for a gun and then pound into a paste.
Antonious 22nd Apr 2013, 7:49 PM edit delete reply
Simple threat assessment prioritizing. Start with the highest threat and move on. By the time you move on, the next lower threat usually has increased their threat level close to what you have already eliminated. Very, very, seldom do threats show a level of self preservation that causes them to reduce their threat level.

Dragonrider 23rd Apr 2013, 9:56 AM edit delete reply

Only one disagreement here not a head shot, reflex would still pull trigger and the head shot would not drop the body enough to avoid "Blue Dolly" damage. Double tap through center of upper torso, still fatal and the double tap throws the body backwards so the reflex trigger pull goes up and high without injuring "Mommy" or Daughter.
Sheela 23rd Apr 2013, 10:59 AM edit delete reply

The idea that a high velocity bullet throws a body anywhere is silly.

Besides, being an andriod, she may be precise enough to just shoot the gun to begin with, that would be better.
Rashala 23rd Apr 2013, 4:12 PM edit delete reply

no targeting hud... she has to eyeball it....and dragons got a point Center of mass would throw him off reflexive shot....and The next two would need to be eye shots given the level of armor on the two with rifles.

Funny No one is argueing with Ceci's Beating the duster in the coat into a bloddy puddle part Just who gets shot first ;)
antrik 14th May 2017, 4:44 PM edit delete reply
@Sheela assuming that body armour is worth anything, I'd actually expect quite significant transfer of impulse...
JGibs_Evil_Twin 22nd Apr 2013, 9:46 PM edit delete reply

Great page!!
Fairportfan 23rd Apr 2013, 2:12 AM edit delete reply

Not to be overly picky, but isn't Ceci in a position where she might block Dolly's shot? (At least her arm appears to be.)
cattservant 23rd Apr 2013, 2:26 AM edit delete reply

I bet she's quite somewhere else before the trigger is pulled!
Centcomm 23rd Apr 2013, 5:12 AM edit delete reply

this is the split second before Ceci is gone like a shot.. :D
Rashala 23rd Apr 2013, 4:13 PM edit delete reply

This is one of many reasons I love Ceci..

I'd list them but I doubt anyone wants to know the top 10
Centcomm 23rd Apr 2013, 4:28 PM edit delete reply

oh feel free im curious :D
Rashala 23rd Apr 2013, 8:17 PM edit delete reply

#1 her Smile *And her smile is Unique to her....even if centcomm took over her body and made it smile it would nto be the same

#2 Her personality that almost childlike innocence and sunny ness.

#10 Her Physical form/ and the grace and ease with which it moves.
Quieteyes 22nd Jan 2014, 5:09 AM edit delete reply
Seeing Ceci's internal conversation makes me think she's going to suddenly open her eyes and say, "I know Kung Fu." :-)
antrik 14th May 2017, 4:46 PM edit delete reply
"Violence Incarnate", that should totally be a band name or something :-)
