Are you a half-man or a half-mouse?!

When last we left our intrepid Lone Wolf, he had carved a bloody path through undead nasties on the deck of a massive dreadnaught, and was deciding whether to storm the ship tower (whence came devastating sorceries) or to jump overboard in a daring attempt to see whether or not you can swim while burdened with armor and weapons. Sadly for science, we chose to hope for good luck storming the castle:

Sweet, we just cleaved through two zombies without even having to tap our dice chart! Why couldn’t we do that every time?

According to our notes, we did at one time have a Crystal Pendant. Which got stolen by the pirates. However, our helpful narrator has said we can use it even if we ain’t got it, which is a relief. Thus:

Yowza! An incredibly powerful master of the dark arts, and us without our wand or lightning bolt scar. Also, if i minotaur is half-man, half-bull, and a centaur is a half-man, half-horse, should we assume a Vonotar is only half a man as well? Because that would make our decision a lot easier. If he were a Vinotar and thus half-man, half-Vin Diesel, we’d have to tread carefully.

So what’ll it be, fellow adventures? Boldly charge into the face of potential death, or leap into the waters in a quest to finally answer our earlier scientific conundrum?

  1. I say kill the wizard. You keep what you kill.

  2. Fight! Fight! Fight!

  3. And another thing, has anyone ever noticed that centaurs and the Minotaur both have “taur” in their name, even though a centaur is part horse? “Minotaur” comes from the Greek “Minos” and “Taurus”, and it means roughly “Bull of Minos”. But centaurs are traditionally horse-human composites, so why do they have the word for “bull” in their name? Wikipedia says that an alternate word is “hippocentaur”, where “hippo” is Greek for “horse”. And apparently, “centaur” is derived from “kentaur”, which is derived from “kentauros” which means “A member of a savage race from Thessaly”. So why do they both have “taur” in the name if one race has nothing to do with bulls?

  4. Vonotaur’s powerful, but so’s Lone Wolf. But which is better? There’s only one way to find out!
    FIGHT!

    Why not? At least if we get killed (which we probably will) it’ll be spectacular (hopefully).

  5. Alright! This seems like the climactic moment of the adventure. Of course we should go kill the wizard! Lone Wolf, abandon your ways of running away from the fight, and harness your inner Conan!

  6. We also have this magic sword that will let us bat away magic like a lightsaber bats away blaster bolts.

    And when we chop of this silly mage’s head (since he can’t repel firepower of this magnitude), we shall shout “THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE!!!!”

  7. Wulf: You’ve andswered your own question. Centaur is derived from Kentauros, NOT Taurus. The Thessalonians were horse-archers, and were rarely encountered by the Greeks when they were on foot, hence they were “half horse.”

  8. There be some learnin goin on!

  9. FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! ARRRRR! Any wimpy landlubber dog that votes otherwise should stop voting!!!

    On a side note it seems Jeff has left the “hidden voting results” option on… I can’t see where we are on the voting…

  10. Yeah, I noticed that too, Worf.

  11. Speaking from the stand point that this guy stand between us and success I say down with the mage.

  12. The Lone Wolf is out for BLOOD!!! Stabbity stab that smelly carcass of indecent person!!1!1!!1!!!11!1one

  13. @Brad: Stabbity stab?????

  14. He can’t be all that great as a wizard or he’d have figured out how to straighten his back. Worst that can happen is we get crispy-fried, and I love fried stuff.
