Oh yeah, those guys.

"...But let's take our time, have a drink first, and declare our plans to the world so that any chance we have of surprising our target is taken away!"

...Well, I suppose someone's gotta show that Madoc is a competent tracker compared to most, and these guys have drawn the short straw in doing so. :P

In fairness... really, what are the odds that Locke'd be right there?

29th Mar 2013, 6:06 AM

From a storytelling perspective? 9 to 1, Locke being there versus him not being there.

From a in-story perspective? They think he's in the town, so that's at worst 1 to 5; the chances of him having a sympathizer listening increase it to be AT BEST 1 to 2.

Soyeah, they're being idiots. :P

Unless they want him to know they are after him. It is actually a legitimate strategy. Them talking about him might get him to panic and try to escape, falling straight into a trap they set.

Their table is the closest to the door, so they are watching that direction. The could have a(n) accomplice(s) outside watching windows and such.

Getting your target to reveal themselves is a lot easier than trying to pick them out of the haystack. Still, if that isn't their plan, and they are just casually talking about their what they're doing because they want to, they aren't being very careful.

Still, you should consider that they don't think he could have gotten this far (he left on foot, and he supposedly didn't have help). They're pretty much just there to make sure he didn't slip through their search party's perimeter.

Most stories are basically made up of coincidences of some kind. Too bad these guys didn't get that memo.

The chances of a sympathizer? Zerooo. Pff, who would help a guy with a bajillion-gold bounty? They'd have to be ridiculous to pass that up. D8

Quin's last paragraph sums up my feelings on this. They're going to search around, but I don't think they're expecting to find anything. Because of that, they've eased and are just having a casual conversation. Not shouting their plans to the heavens or anything, just talking, and Locke happens to be in close vicinity.

I still agree that they're being stupid/careless, but Locke's not the most careful either for sitting down there. >_>

They are just looking to give somebody a hug. They might not even want anything to do with Locke. Though they'd probably hug Locke anyways, cause they seem like nice people.

29th Mar 2013, 2:39 AM

That would be the best thing. :'D Locke needs hugs~

2nd Apr 2013, 7:54 AM

Im sure madoc will be along to murder the competition again soon.

29th Mar 2013, 7:37 AM

Awww. Madoc. Ruining everyone's fun. :C

2nd Apr 2013, 7:54 AM

Oh noooooo.
Locke still hasn't got the money he owes them D:

29th Mar 2013, 7:49 AM

He can still pay!

With his life.

2nd Apr 2013, 7:55 AM

29th Mar 2013, 8:06 AM

But then they'll be suspicious!

2nd Apr 2013, 7:55 AM

He should punch them out

29th Mar 2013, 8:48 AM

He.. totally should!

2nd Apr 2013, 7:56 AM

Locke, I know that you're a nice guy... but please... DON'T GIVE YOURSELF AWAY! THINK OF THE CHILDREN!

29th Mar 2013, 9:54 AM

He's not trying to give himself away! D:

2nd Apr 2013, 7:56 AM

As long as they don't do a "thorough" look just a few inches to the left. XD

29th Mar 2013, 10:20 AM

Yeah.... >_> Keep that hood up, Locke.

2nd Apr 2013, 7:57 AM

No Locke! Don't kill those people and ruin Oralee's childhood! She's too cute to grow up!

29th Mar 2013, 10:41 AM

I don't remember who these guys are... XD

29th Mar 2013, 7:38 PM

Understandable! They were only very briefly mentioned. o~o

2nd Apr 2013, 7:58 AM

Locke better get to work and start growing that beard. There's just too many people after him.

29th Mar 2013, 9:59 PM

... Hmm, I'm not even sure if it's possible for Locke to grow a full beard. 8I

2nd Apr 2013, 8:00 AM

31st Mar 2013, 9:22 AM

It's a good idea! I did something like that for the Chapter 1 Q&A~

2nd Apr 2013, 8:02 AM

oh yeah

3rd Apr 2013, 3:27 PM

.... It might not be Locke they're looking for though... hmmmm. Idk. XD Ha ha!!

1st Apr 2013, 11:48 PM

That's true! Although they mention Amanton and someone running...

2nd Apr 2013, 8:03 AM

Just want to point out that in panel three it says "-his far" when it should say "-this far". I'm not trying to be a troll or anything, just saying.

18th Jan 2014, 9:49 PM

Ah, thank you for pointing that out! I'll fix it next chance I get~
