#337 Top Hat Rises

December 2, 2022
That’s a big talking tree you got there!


Tuple and Smugastut the guards standing in confusion. Tuple points towards the sky with an alarmed expression, while Smugastut looks up in bewilderment. A tree trunk has appeared in-between the two guards.
Tuple: “Up there? But we’re still down here!”
Smugastut: “How’re we supposed to beat Team 1?!”
Tree: “Leave that to me!”

Same shot continues. Tuple and Smugastut look frantically around for the source of the voice.
Tuple: “Umm? Who said that?”

View lowers down to the guard's feet, revealing a pair of black eyes just under the base of the tree. Tuple and Smugastut notice the eyes as well.

A giant owl person is actually wearing the tree as a hat! She rises from the ground with a single step. She is bare-footed, but wears a utility belt around the waist and digging claws on both of her hands.

Stygian Lord says:

And so, the spies of the Royal Ears of Disk enter the scene.

I might feel intimidated, if I hadn’t calculated all of this beforehand.
