And with that I end your first taste of the game of Rim-vau.

I had to get this page in here, but regular updates are still coming on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

OK, this is so far unbalanced.
But why do they make it so?
I mean if they want enjoyment then these are over soon and might as well rather make them kill each other.
If they want training then I am not sure the greens are going to train much...

Hahaha, I agree. This particular match is super unbalanced, but it's not the way the games usually are.
You'll see in the next few pages WHY this match was arranged.

Cool! I have my guess so...

I'd like to hear your guess.

OK, here goes: It is simply a demonstration of power. Specifically, ELITE power vs non-Infinity Strand "common foot soldier (CFS)" power. As in - 3 ELITES can take down 11 CFS without breaking a sweat or taking ANY damage whatsoever. This is a message to anyone wishing to rebel - you WILL be crushed.

One point on using a whip. You have drawn both Tyoe and Selena using their whips with their hands in a "pistol grip". The wrists should be pointed forward, so that the handle of the whip is in line with the forearm. Don't ask me how I know... lol

Unlike sigbrain here who prefers rudely giving away info, I prefer to say "I have my guess" and then wait and either confirm it or deny it. Tsk.
Or a PM if the author REALLY wants.

So... yeah. My guess is what sigbrain pretty much said in the comment PLUS that they want to test Selena as she is still new.
I mean, they went all those lengths to get her so I think they suspect her of something like a "special child" with maybe unique or rare skill sets.
And they want to see them during the battles.

Interesting theory. They do use another method to convey the "if you rebel, you WILL be crushed" thing though. ;-)

I think in my original version of this page their hands are in the right position. I had a bitch of a time with this because at first I drew the whip in Tyoe's left hand and had to go back to change it. I'll likely fix this little problem too.

Well, she sure made that look easy.

Much to Tyoe's embarrassment, I'm sure.

It's like a slap fight except with taser-whips... ouch.

Yeah, that's pretty much what a "Rim-vau Showdown" would be.
A full game of Rim-vau lasts 8 days and nights and requires more stamina than Tyoe's team would ever have though.

One last thing...

I think that Rd is giggling into her cornflakes over all of us thinking that the Mahjite are the "Evil Overlords" intent on enslaving the entire galaxy. What I HAVEN'T seen mentioned (I think is the possibility of an EXTERNAL threat to The Line. That may... put things into a different perspective, I think...

Oatmeal, and there are TONS of things out in the universe.
Who knows.

Then again, maybe there's only a bunch of other smucks, just like us, out there.
