AN ODE TO “SECOND-RATE, HAS-BEEN” LOSERS AND STRONG DENTURE ADHESIVE CREAMS
9 August 2014
Greetings again, most honored reader, to another transmission of the Saga of the Terrific Trio!
You’ve got to hand it to that G.A.: not only did he get his shot off using just his teeth, he also got a pretty long speech in there too. Good thing he uses Sir Gallap’s No-Slip Denture Paste, guaranteed to hold up whether you’re chomping on apples, corn cobs, or pulling back 100-lb-tension longbows. I swear by it myself and recommend it highly! (sold in all local apothecary and wizard shops).
Now I think you can understand why I took such pains (HERE ) to steer the kids towards the Grey Archer. He may be ready for his pension (if they offered them on the Wyrld), but he took down a two-bit punk like the Terminator whose true task for the Countess is probably more for what he does for her at night than for any prowess with the crossbow. While Nikki hangs above a river of lava, Seth battles the effects of an Encharrn Spell as well as the shock of sand in the eye from the Terminator’s sand-bolt, and Bryan relaxes on the ground, G.A. has the toughness, grit, and guts to strike back. If he can effect a come back for the kids against the Countess, they may yet live to see their may out of this.
It’s a race to the finish as the Countess has her hands (at long last!) on the Vanguard-Z armor. If she can figure out how to activate it, the kids are finished. Basically, she is holding an artifact of vast power. The armor gives its wearer the strength of giants, allows him or her to fire mystical bolts of energy, intense heat, cold, light, and various other beams of power. Lastly, among these other powers, the armor basically makes its wearer invulnerable to all harm. If the Countess succeeds in donning it.. well, then the Saga of the Terrific Trio will be quite a short one indeed.
Let’s check in next week for our stunning conclu-sion, shall we, dear reader?
Until that time,
