*starts shopping for pitchfork-proof overalls, just in case*

Hmm. Shadowy figure, fabulous hat, creepy voice, cryptic statements? Monocle

...I'll allow it. *calls off the angry mob*

So. Unconscious nobles are more trouble than they are worth, but that doesn't stop them from being taken when necessary. I had a theory earlier that the remnants of Lucideus' power might give nobles immunity to possession, but seeing those unfortunate guardsmen laid out like that makes me wonder. We can't know for sure yet, but I think maybe not?

New theory: Unconscious nobles are missing nobles. Missing nobles lead to a more vigilant Watch. This shadowy fellow seems to want to avoid confrontation, so that's the last thing he needs. Not to mention, the Marshal seems to have some experience with this sort of thing. Best to tread very carefully--for now.

Whew.

*tucks anti-pitchfork gear back into the closet... but not too far back*

Especially when they're knocked out. Shocked

Since Spike is intelligent, it makes sense that he didn't kill Lockwood and Mrs. Biscuit; he is trying to do away with evidence, not leave more

Exactly! Spike probably could've toted them away, one under each arm... but that might have prompted inconvenient questions from the guards outside.

Points against and for your hypothesis, respectively. (Against because unconscious guards wouldn't cause more trouble when they go missing than would conscious guards.)

So the events at the guard station happened before the fight at the arena. Good to know.

I wonder whether Spike is okay. I hope not for the sake of the heroes, though he's a good character.

(To be fair, the "especially" may have been partly a joke reference that I couldn't resist.) Wink

Cool! (Wrong comic link, though.)

Hm. I guess Spike is usually the one who controlls (un)dead humans?

What about the crowbar gives Patches ideas?

D'oh! Thanks for telling me. Link should be fixed now. XD

(Patches saw the cloth tied onto the bar, and thought it might be good for some therapeutic polishing.)
