Anyone out there know of a decent book about Twentieth Century Art Movements?
I'm also less than sure about the infantry company that Zarkov is delaying, but I'm fairly sure the first squad were operating under Boone's orders.Seeing as he specifically ordered them to shoot us and we hadn't yet done anything except talk to the station master, I'm going to say that "fairly sure" is a bit of an understatement.
even assuming that Farungo doesn't recognise the Wardens' authority per se, the soldiers (or officers) might at least know that they're Messiger law enforcement.Wardens are "the ultimate lawmen on Levongard, each is a representative of the Governor and by extension the Administratum".
Would this involve Zarkov or not?Somewhat to Alyx's regret, it'd be a lot better if it did.
I'llThen I will PM you a question regarding the particularly vital details sometime later on.
fudgemake a map of the station layout during the holidays, as well as a transport map of Farungo.
she's not sure the Guard are shooting at us because Boone told them toI'm also less than sure about the infantry company that Zarkov is delaying, but I'm fairly sure the first squad were operating under Boone's orders.
Making an assumption of at least marginal intelligence on his part, he knew where we were going to be for (or at least "in") a few hours.This is what makes me wonder whether Boone and the infantry company knew about one another, seeing as how Boone was quite happy to go up against us with just those twelve guys. And given how stupid it is not to wait for that company given that we weren't going anywhere for several hours, I'm guessing Boone was either very impatient or unaware that the Guard would get their act together and assemble a company that quickly.
Trying to attack six well-equipped Inquisition operatives (and a Warden) with twelve musketeers is pretty stupid.
Doing it when you know you'll have a hundred more musketeers in two minutes... that's very stupid.
So her best guess is that the other soldiers aren't acting on Boone's orders, they're shooting at the crazy off-worlders who just incinerated their squad mates with witchcraft - and either don't believe or don't care that we're Wardens.That's exactly what Pelagius is thinking, minus the bit about the Wardens -- even assuming that Farungo doesn't recognise the Wardens' authority per se, the soldiers (or officers) might at least know that they're Messiger law enforcement. So if Pelagius-as-Fake-Warden-Boone comes up to them and tells them that the "witch" has been terminated, that's got to mean more than some random civilian saying so.
Also, if they are working for Boone, there is always the possibility that they know what he looks like.I wasn't assuming the infantry company were working for Boone. On the contrary, if he's made himself known to the entire company-and-a-bit, and still gone ahead with just twelve only to receive an explosion to the face, then as you said, that would be a truly stupid move -- and I'm currently working on the assumption that Boone was only mostly stupid.
Alyx's current thoughts are to disarm all of the King's Guard simultaneously, then formally request that they go home with their tails between their legs.Would this involve Zarkov or not?
Step one of her plan depends on a few assumptions about the layout of the terrain, but it's at least feasible. Particularly if we play either the A-Team or the Eleventh Doctor's theme in the background when we do it.
