Gosh, I hope the next place is safe enough though... sure sounds good!

Yes, they realize there's no gain in guilt tripping, and Alph feels terribly bad about this as it is already anyway D:

The new place may be safe ...for a while? ;)

No battle plan survives contact with the enemy. As for surviving contact with Kobolt...

Kobolt: I can see all your memories, including your childhood and upbringing. So attempts to pass messages based on shared experiences that nobody else can understand will not be successful!

Now, are they able to do things like demolish the tunnel after they have passed through it? Or destroy the secret base that they just abandoned?

Waypoint commander: Everyone through? Then get this blast door shut and secured! *accesses control panel* Quickly! I'm arming the demolition charges!

Eriksen: He's going to demolish the tunnel and the base behind us. That'll stop those Groolars from following us! *grim smile*

Conner: *runs back into base* Okay, assholes, time for round two... *runs down stairs* *steps through fallen Groolars* They've run for it! But they've left their bolthole open, stupid fuckers... *dives through access, sprints down tunnel* Kobolt won't have any complaints when I give her- whu- *is momentarily disoriented by shockwave from demolition charges, then crushed by hundreds of tons of falling rock*

Meanwhile...

Kobolt: The super-secret base is here, so this is where we will begin searching for secret entrances. Forget about this base here - they'll have abandoned it and demolished the tunnel they used.

And so, a long, long time later...

Alph Colla Borsoi Weller: ...so, after the war, it was decided that there wasn't any point in trying to reinstate the demolished base and tunnels, and so the whole thing was declared a grave, sealed over, and dedicated with a memorial to our fallen there. The remains have been undisturbed since... well - the first day of the Invasion. So, no secret chambers or anything interesting - just rubble. Of course, there are similar bases that you can visit, if you're interested...

Cnut Colla Borsoi Weller: No thanks, dad. I've seen the VR tour. And they never found the traitor Conner?

Alph Colla Borsoi Weller: I'm sure he got what he deserved, son.

Crushed, entombed Conner: ... *still alive enough to be conscious* D-..

"including your childhood and upbringing"-
L-let's h-h-h-hope Kobolt isn't able to see all that stuff.. D:


Conner-

xD

Oh dear, poor Conner. Poor poor poor Conner indeed! Someone once said, there are things worse than death.. But yes, Conner, that is what you get for jumping right into situations without thinking, twice o.O

Cnut Colla Borsoi Weller and his older brother Pete Colla Borsoi Weller have played the VR game as well, the "Bury by Blasting" level one of their favorite parts.

Oh dear... I wasn't even thinking in terms of the childhood horrors it might give Kobolt access to...

Groolar looting specialist: They don't really do this sort of thing in your size, Great Leader... but these should be just about big enough. *hands over pile of clothes*

Kobolt: *pulls on gym shorts* *puts on tennis shoes* *pulls on singlet vest* *hangs whistle on chain around neck* ...Good enough. *stands, blows whistle* Alright, students, my name is Miss Anvil, and I will be taking you for physical education. I see a lot of you are rather fat and out of condition, but I will change that. Today. Whatever it takes.

Crowd of couch potato Kordinars: D-:

and...

Groolar squad: Prisoner delivery! You ordered this one special!

Kobolt: Yes, Bent Windahl, the journalist, always writing insulting editorials about me and my warrior elite- *mindscan* -thinking we would never meet. But I know what to do to you. Squad, follow... *picks up Bent, hangs him upside-down from coat rack by his underpants* *starts prodding him* (playground chant) ♪Spotty bum! Spotty bum! Bendy's got a spotty bum!♪

Groolar squad: Har har har! *dance around Bent, laughing, pointing and prodding* (playground chant) ♫Spotty bum! Spotty bum! Bendy's got a spotty bum! ...♫

Bent: ;_;

Kobolt: I was going to hog-tie you with your own entrails and then eat your face, but this lasts longer.

and...

Local politician: *stares at the chair he's tied to, then at the sheet of paper on the school desk in front of him* Do you want me to write a confession?

Groolar technocrat: *frees his writing hand* No, I want you to write down the simultaneous equations y=3x+4 and y=5x-8, and see if you can find values of x and y before the bomb in the desk goes off. *checks watch*

Local politician: *whimper* C-can I do it graphically? On my commpad's calculator app?

Groolar technocrat: Only if you want to have it force-fed to you.

and...

Groolar captain: This backlog is getting stupid! Where is the Great Leader finding all these people to get the "hairwash" treatment? If we can't make these toilet cisterns fill faster, we're gonna have to get another squad and commandeer another school toilet block!

And that's before Kobolt starts organising citywide dodgeball bombardments... >:=)>

Oh dear..
Oh dear dear dear those poor guys D:


"No, I want you to write down the simultaneous equations y=3x+4 and y=5x-8, and see if you can find values of x and y before the bomb in the desk goes off. "

So maybe they did get the President, and this is what happened to him.............. ?


Well, in just very few pages from now on we're going to see what will happen to Knut. Probably not really nicer than any of this ;)

If they had captured Reed, a former space station commander ought to be able to handle a little linear algebra. Maybe they think he will be handicapped by his injuries...

Reed Colla Borsoi Weller: Do I need to show workings for this...? My hand's a bit unsteady, and these pain meds are messing with my head...

Groolar technocrat: The answer to all those is "I don't care".

Reed Colla Borsoi Weller: Fine... so y = 3x+4 = 5x-8... add 8 to each side to give 3x+12 = 5x ... subtract 3x from each side to give 12 = 2x ... divide by 2 gives x = 6 ... so... that means the first equation comes out as 3x6 +4 = 22, and double check with the second equation: 5x6 -8 = 22. So, x=6 and y=22.

Groolar technocrat: *sigh* *opens desk* *disarms bomb* Huh, I thought you might be the wrong guy to try this on. You were in charge of the space station... back when the time traveller arrived, weren't you? ...What REALLY happened? You can never rely on the official stuff, especially on Groolar...

Yes, the President of Kordinar doesn't let himself get killed that easily

..?

What really happened. Kobolt should know, after all the ship also went to Groolar... ;)

"You can never rely on-"
Hopefully just a trick question. Or he's tired of life D:

Welcome back!
I'm good at going to undisclosed hidden locations that I don't even know where I am going on my bike. Just pack a lot of water and bring money, if you ride with me, you don't know how far your going or where you will wind up.

Aw, Alph is still harboring all that guilt. Well, yeah, I guess the time really was not that long. Sometimes we forget that they are humans with similar emotions. :)

Yes, in-comic it's just one hour or so. Reading webcomics page by page as they update can mess up our time perception pretty bad, hours feel like weeks, months or sometimes even years, happens to me all the time ;D
