    Nice gnome saving, shame about the dismount. Proper heroics there.

    Haley's only hope: Do golems monologue?

    Wow, what a change from Crystal! I thought the gnome-town thing would be relatively quick like Sandsedge, but I like this new direction. I just hope Haley makes it out okay........

    I wonder, is this saying golems always feel pain, or just something specific to Crystal herself? Or just to sentient golems?

    Okay as much as I dislike Crystal and want Haley to get out of this okay, that last sentence was a kick in the gut, confirming what this did to her. She may be a ass, but she didn't deserve this.

    What i want to know is if crystal also (partially) blames bozzok for her pain, or if she's still blindly loyal to Bozzok. It can't be a picnic to know that your boss decided to animate you as a golem instead of resurrecting you, especially since he got grubwiggler resurrected just to make her.

    I wonder if she'll lash out at bozzok at some point. Or if this is a side-event for Haley only.

    So on the discussion of whether Crystal's soul went to the afterlife...

    I think this tips the scale to "no."

    That's, um, wow. Scary.

    I guess that most flesh golems feel pain but aren't really conscious to express it. Crystal's a self-aware abomination, a true Frankenstein's monster.

    Makes sense to me. It may have interesting implications for some past scenes, as well.

    Also, I think this answers the question raised in the last thread about whether Crystal was hasted and/or charged up by the lightning or not.

    I was going to say this exactly. That's a terrible fate. I need to know more.

    Also, that capacitor coil looks beautiful.

    Can they be said to feel pain if they lack consciousness, though? The other flesh golems weren't self aware... I feel like this might be unique to her.

    Oddly enough, I think I feel more sorry for Crystal than Haley in this comic.

    They increase the Creep Factor to eleven when you create Flesh Golems from different bodies and you can hear the disembodied screams of the victims every time you come near it.

    Bozzok (and Grubwiggler) probably have an override. Remember what Bozz was saying about her never getting distracted/etc a few strips back.

    Yes, that is pretty grim. I didn't think I'd end up feeling sympathy for Crystal, of all people.

    So the song runs on, with shift and change,
    Through the years that have no name,
    And the late notes soar to a higher range,
    But the theme is still the same.

    A gruesome fate for a gruesome person and yet I have to agree; I don't think anyone no matter how gruesome deserves it.
