#304 Status ReportApril 15, 2022
A crudely drawn map, with a tall tower in the middle and a wall surrounding it. Text on the ground reads: City of Buffet. A stick is drawing some holes on the wall.
Tuple: “The wall is broken and hobos are rampaging!”
Sharpie: “Not anymore. And the walls are being fixed.”
Same map as before. The stick is adding a mean-looking ball-shaped bird.
Tuple: “Oh, umm..."
Tuple: “Chicky is rampaging!”
Sharpie: “Yes, I saw that. What else?”
Same map again. The stick is drawing a couple of flags to the left of the tower.
Tuple: “The glup establishments were taken over!”
Sharpie: “Taken over? By whom? Why?”
Three owl characters. From left to right: Tuple the guard kneeling and shivering on the ground, Smugastut the guard standing angrily, Sharpie the undercover detective standing cross-handed.
Smugastut: “It was some stupid group! Some revolution whatever!”
Tuple: “Our regulatory glup time! CANCELED!”
Stygian Lord says:
And here are your culprits from the previous comic:
Harvain used to be an adventurer who happened to be come by some very convenient wealth. That wealth has been sitting away, awaiting for a day like this, to be deployed as a weapon of mass charming against the hobos.
Dollar is just one of the many hobos earning their pay with daily card games. She got somewhat infamous a time ago for forging her cards by writing different numbers onto them with a writing stick.
The Mystery Horse himself. He and his troupe are some of the people who retain an unauthorized dual-citizenship between the Outer City and Slums.
And finally, the head honcho. Sharpie is a cookie-loving detective who walked out of the DLEP office to fulfill his one long-time mission: to prevent any and all hobo insurrections by infiltrating the Slums.
There are quite a few other people working with him. We’ll be seeing some of them eventually.
