#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.

“Hello. Did you know you can be an official citizen of Buffet?”

Tell me more!

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.
