rolled 3, 6, 4 = 13

Scarred, Dreamwalker. I'll be real here. You are acting out in fear again, and thus lashing out in anger. And because of that, you are even ignoring all logic... just like you always do in these situations, and I have grown far beyond tired of your attitudes. I even said "Checkmate" as a response to if Essence sacrifices herself as I see the logic you aren't seeing, as your fear and anger is clouding your vision once again, as it has done so so so many times, and I said "checkmate" in hopes it would keep you both calm and collected even if you don't see the logic...

But it seems my best attempts at trying to keep your courage stable is a failed effort, and honestly, I don't see the point in trying to keep you both level headed as I never see any improvement, and I am considering it is impossible. I guess it is a fact that in this world, people never change no matter the circumstances.

I guess for the sake of my teammates' attitude I'll have to explain the third reason as to why Essence sacrificing herself is a terrible idea for her. I wanted to keep it a secret, but I guess I can never keep a secret no matter how hard I try, can I?

the third reason is this: the battle is won if either Laura, or Essence dies. If Essence sacrifices herself to have someone else control her body, the battle is immediately won with the victor being Laura, as Essence would have died from suicide. Even if the person Essence is threatening to summon were to control Essence's dead body, it would not be Essence, it would be someone else. Essence would be dead.

That is the logic I have to explain to you two that I was supposed to keep a secret from Essence, but you ruined it through your fear and anger having Essence skip her turn.

At this point, because of your temper tantrums, I do not care what happens whether you slay or spare Essence, and I do not care what happens to us anymore. At the very least your temper tantrums have given me an opportunity to heal Laura again.

I'll leave it to your decision whether or not you want to kill her.

In closing, stop letting Essence scare you. That is how she controls you into doing what she wants. That said, I'll leave the decision to killing Essence or not to you since you both were the ones lashing out.

I think what Scarred is trying to say is, please don't think that violence is the ONLY solution to EVERY problem. That is how you make people hate you, and want revenge, like Rosalia for what we did to her sister, or Anubis for what we accidentally did to her world.

Case and point, don't you dare forget that we have accomplished so much in this battle without having to resort to violence. We manage to survive this far with negotiation, and our wits alone, and I am really impressed by what you accomplished doing that, Laura...

but... you should also dare not think that violence should not be a solution either. It is unfortunate, but sometimes we just don't have a choice in the matter, and have to kill. It really depends on the situation, and if all other possibilities have dried out.

In any case, I should state the battle is not yet over. I healed us all back to full health just in case in my turn, and Scarred attacked in her turn. It is now your turn, Laura.

And there were a few instances I can think of where we believe we have won a battle when something swoops in in the last second to make our victory all for nothing... I'm thinking of when we thought we won in protecting absolution of this universe from the cult only to fail, and when we thought we've defeated Spirit Parasite only to have her give us a final surprise attack out of nowhere and made us lose Felafaf, and when flint made a sneak attack on Ana when we thought we won

So, with those in mind, I really, really hate to ask this of you, Laura, but to make absolutely sure Essence is dead, I think for your turn, you have to deliver one final blow with your dream sword into head, where her brain is, as Scarred already got her in the heart.

I'm sorry to ask of this to Laura, Dreamwalker, but I have experienced so many last minute attacks from our enemies where we think we have won, let our guard down, and fail because of it.

I suppose it will have to depend on what that plan is. I trust Dervan about as far as I can throw him.

Hey Scarred are you okay?

*Looks down at Essence picks up the knife she had, looks at it for a moment, then uses it to cut off Essene's horn. Looks at the knife again, then throws it away like so much trash. Cradles the horn close to her. Still not saying a word*
No. 924003 ID: e51896

My plan has always been from the start to rescue Ana by helping her escape. Ana herself said that is what she wanted when Dervan gave her that option. I have deeply considered leaning towards that option, and honestly, I feel like not tying ourselves down to this small universe anymore and go on a adventure out in the multiverse to make our own happiness. We are responsible for our happiness and safety after all.

Plus, we will also be rescuing Absolution Junior from the cult, and from Absolution prime, and anybody else who wants his power by hiding him far away from this universe. That way, even when Ana and her friends' life reaches their end, he can carry on and grow.

The thing is though, I do not think it is going to be as easy as Dervan is making it out to be. Everything comes with a price... I'm sure Ana escaping this dimension with Dervan's help will have risks of their own just as trying to save this world has its own risks.

Mainly I am wondering about some people like Triumphant's vague warning about not having Ana leave, and I wonder if whether or not the curtain wielder would come after Ana for dimensional hopping without his approval... and not to mention, just because we take this exit off this universe does not mean we are safe from our enemies. people who want revenge against us such as Rosalia, and Anubis might still chase after Ana. But in any case, we can at least show that an attempt was made to leave... We will just have to be prepared for that too when we choose that option.

But the way I see it, the risks I am thinking of in escaping is just like how in history, there have been people who try to escape a dictatorship in their country and seek refuge in a safer country, escaping spies who are hired to try to kidnap the refugees back to the country they are escaping from as prisoners. or even slaves in the US trying to escape the south and head up north. Taking Dervan's offer will also have its challenges. But as long as we are with Ana, I'm sure we can succeed in what gets thrown at us.

Sorry, I'm just rambling at this point. My question to you, Laura and Dreamwalker... would you like to come escape with us? we are allowed I think about 10 friends to accompany us in this escape, and so far we have Ana, AJ, maybe wildcat, Scarred, and myself.
No. 924004 ID: e51896

In any case, we should be focusing on the present. The battle is not over. Scarred, I don't think you can use the knife on Essence, or do anything more to her as you already took your turn. It is Laura's turn to make an action before the battle ends.

And if Essence is truly dead, I think the only thing I would want Laura in her turn is to take all the items in Essence's inventory that we can get, such as get my totem back, and/or any of those cursed papers and items she uses (like the paper with the trumpets on it) or perhaps her diary she was writing in.

And since the battle is over, I wonder what happens now, or what kind of reward we may get...

Understood. So you're planning to stay Laura. *looks at Dreamwalker I suggest you stay with Laura then. you were told that it is the most important thing for both of you to do right now. that means, NO MORE TRAVELING TO OTHER DIMENSIONS TO TALK TO OTHERS WHILE LINKED WITH LAURA like you have been doing with Triumphant for example. Also, no more dream hopping unless you absolutely need to. That is how she got trapped here in the first place. Just stay with Laura, and pretend you are human for the time being. Protect her.

*looks back at Laura* As for what to do on your turn, what is done is done. Essence needs to die, not just for our sake, but for hers as well. Right now, I suggest only two options:
First option, you skip your turn and let Essence's life end naturally during her turn. Her body will be left here and that could risk someone like one of her allies coming in and taking it away to revive her after the battle ends for later... but at least you won't be seen as the one who murdered her.
Second option, you can make one final attack on Essence with a Fantasy Beam to obliterate her body, the same move you used on her when you first met her and saved Ana but stopped mid-way. This should ensure that nobody takes her body and revives her just like what was done with Flint, and Clarence after they died and has her coming after us again... but you will have her allies come attack you for revenge, especially Anubis.

I'm leaning towards option 2... but I want to hear what option Dreamwalker and Scarred chooses first. I know you don't like the idea of ending another's life after all.

Reviving Essence is not an option. At this point, she is far too gone, and far too dangerous for our health to be kept alive, and... I just want this nightmare of a battle to end. I'm exhausted.

*looks at items she retrieved*
*thinking to herself*: But in the end of the day, I'm just glad I FINALLY got my totem back. It felt like a part of me was missing for so very long until I got it back. I'll have be careful not to lose it again, and consider giving it to Triumphant for evidence against Essence and Happy especially since Robbit already gave the two dark totems, and Scarred's damaged totem to Melkior the incubus as evidence for the Dimensional Tribunal. For now, I'll keep it close to me. Nobody will take this away from me.

*thinking to herself*: as for the knife... eehhhh... I... feel very uncomfortable holding it... but at the same time... I feel a sense of great power over me. It's like the one ring to rule them all, but with Pandora's box properties.
This could be a very dangerous item in the wrong hands. I do not know what Scarred was planning to do with it, but if she were to use it on Essence in any way, that would be bad news. Thus, necessary actions will be to find a way to quarantine this knife. But for now, I'll keep it close to me. Nobody will take this away from me.

It almost looks like a spirit parasite... 

If I had to guess, that thing probably wasn't directly controlling Essence, rather, I think it was only influencing her actions... 
Kind of like... how we influence Ana's actions with our suggestions. That would probably explain Meat Monster and inspector crowcawski... she was actually talking with this thing, not them. That said, Essence would most likely still be the same cruel person if she were to be revived even with this parasite not in her... 

But I think this explains one thing I have been wondering: I was told that if Essence were to die, Scarred, I, and all the other voices would die too, kind of like a hive mind thing... and yet, we seem to still be alive despite Essence being dead. It made no sense until this branch Parasite showed up. Scarred, I assume we might be linked in some way to this thing, not Essence... and I am pretty worried what this implies about you and I, Scarred. But in any case, if we kill this thing, we might risk going down with it if what I am thinking is true...
No. 924992 ID: 8b660e


Sorry Fortune, I'm out of patience for that.

Kill it Laura, if it does escape it could bring another Essence in here or make someone just as bad as she was. We can't risk that happening. We were told that even if we did kill Essence we would lose our connection to Ana, and that's not been the case.

finish it off.

I... wait Laura.. you...

...I don't like this at all. But at this point, It's impossible to stop you, isn't it Laura? You already took your turn and made your offer to it after all. Scarred and Dreamwalker and I can't stop you since we all took our turns already, it's left to that parasite to make its turn...

*sigh* and I'm way too mentally exhausted and confused anyway. With all the drama I'm continuously going through, I give up. I just quit. It is too much. So I Might as well just let this happen at this point and hope for a miracle that maybe this is actually a good idea.

Just know that I might not be able to rescue you and Dreamwalker any longer if something bad happens to you, nor will we be held responsible for this now that you've taken this route, Laura.

so I guess, all I have to say to you Laura is: que sera sera.

I don’t even know what the tribunal wants for themselves, or even what they are like. If it came down to it I would want to find a way out of here with their help, maybe get a new contract for us. I don’t know.

To be honest Laura I’m disappointed in you. You probably don’t even care anymore. I’m not disappointed that you aren’t like me, but that you did this to yourself to even try to be like me. I wanted you to learn and be your own person, it’s the same thing I want for Ana.

Hopefully, it’s not too late.
No. 925134 ID: e51896

Scarred, it wasn't cool that you pulled my arm away from Laura when I tried to hand the knife over to her. Despite everything, I know Laura is still our friend, maybe even our best friend.
But I don't think I should fault you too much, Scarred. After all, you did find out that Absolution, one of your closest allies, and someone you might have worshiped in you timeline, betrayed you for his own personal gain. After finding that out, I can understand why you would be weary.
That in mind, I think it is required to try to learn how to trust others again especially in such dangerous times.

I still see Laura as herself. I am not disappointed in her at all, In fact... I think I might be proud of her.
I don't think her goal was to be like you in every way Scarred as you think she was. It was that she wanted to have the courage to take certain required actions like you do. I think she was also heavily inspired to take her action by a certain someone else that isn't you or I. That said, don't be disappointed in Laura. Ok Scarred?

For the knife: Yeah. keep that knife safe until we know for sure what are goals will be, Laura. Personally I honestly don't think any of us voices, or Ana for that matter, will ever find peace because of us being linked to this cycle. It will be such a unique goal for us to stay and fix the cycle (in such a way that won't cause any apocalyptic events of course).
it will probably be more trickier than escaping like I wanted, or even more difficult than trying to stop the fog like Scarred wanted, but if we want to truly find peace at the end, we'll need to fix the cycle.

For the totem: I already had an idea from the start who to give the totem to. Specifically, I think it makes the most sense to give it to Triumphant. The reason is because Melkior has the other 3 totems, which I believe he said he was going to give them to the Tribunal's organization. I wonder if we contact Dervan, if he can put Triumphant on the line as well. we'll just have to ask him I guess.

Lastly... After all the trials you went through Laura, and becoming a newer person from it, would you like a codename/nickname? Dreamwalker and I talked about giving you a codename before, and I think now is a good time.

OH! But before we decide on the nicknames, or call Dervan with his card... Perhaps we should cremate Essence's corpse over there in some way? This idea came to mind because there have been times where people whom we think are dead tend to come back to life, like Flint for example. Disposing the body might prevent her from coming back by someone with nefarious intentions.

*looks at the riddle ghost* Oh, so were you announcing the battle this whole time? Neat. It's probably just me, but you seem a lot less colorful than I remember. In any case, thanks for those tools that you gave us earlier *is referring to the tools that looks like curators*. I don't think we ever got your name. Most people that tell ghost stories you are in tend to refer to you as a "strange creature".

*looks at Laura* I understand. No codenames. And don't worry, no offense was taken. You know the phrase: us getting into trouble? Well for us, it is more like, trouble gets into us...in Soviet Russia...heh heh I wouldn't want to be around myself and Scarred if I was someone else... no offense to you Scarred.
We will stay far away from you, the Branch Parasite, and Dreamwalker. I'll respect your wishes as It is for the best.

Make Absolution Prime really angry you say? something tells me that will inevitably probably happen even if we try our best to avoid that outcome. *remembers how She, Scarred, and Logan lied about not knowing Absolution Junior* The seeds for that step may have been planted. It depends on how well we tend to its growth. For now, we'll have to devise a defensive strategy before we get the opportunity to anger him

Laura is right. Take her warning seriously, Scarred. be careful with what you say to others.

*looks at totem for a while contemplating her actions with the totem until finally comes to a decision*

Scarred, from now on, decisions like this has to be a joint decision. I don't want to leave you left out of a decision like I did with sacrificing Felafaf to kill a spirit parasite, and I don't want to be left out of a decision either like when you attacked Anubis thinking it was Essence.

That said, Do I have your permission to pick up the card and call Dervan? I personally want to give Dervan a call, and discuss things moving forward. After all, he heard and saw everything that took place through the card, and I think it is required to speak with him right now. OK?

The goal was to prevent Laura from and Dreamwalker from dying. we accomplished that goal. so to answer your question: yes.

Now if you're asking whether we are happy or not, not really, because we were not able to save everyone's life in this battle (Felafaf, Flint, some of those ghosts, etc). Not only we couldn't save them, we were even forced to hurt them, making me wonder if we did more harm than good. I just wish I could have figured out some better way through that conflict.

But at this point, It's alright. I don't think we are expecting any kind of happiness from our journey anymore. But whatever.

Now then, This battle left things unanswered (such as what this battlefield really was, who those two invisible people were which were with Karikatura Fortune Ana (>>878836) and other sort of secrets we could have missed.)
That said, I would like to use the mirror curator totem to see what important hidden things we may have missed during the battle, please. Besides, we used the shrimp mother totem a couple of time, so it is time to give the mirror totem a shot in the spotlight.

oh, but first, we won't be able to bring Dervan's business card with us, so perhaps you should keep it for yourself. It's probably what Dervan would want anyway. *hands the business card over to the spirit*

after a week of thinking about it, I think I decided to unfortunately not continue Strange Abnormalities, and just continue the quest with Ana. I really want to continue Strange Abnormalities, but there is just too many factors that is preventing me from wanting to continue. Sorry

Ana, no offense to Laura but we’ve spent a whole year on her.
No. 928226 ID: e51896

Ana. She is our main responsibility, and like I said, I think we should make some progress with her before things really get crazy while the cult is distracted with other things to not bother us too much.

I see. Well I can't stop you. But just know that as Dervan said, we didn't really mean what we said about you imitating human emotions. We only wanted you to get off that throne. Really, it was either us or Essence, a kill or be killed situation.
No. 928599 ID: 8b660e

shut the hell up. You swore to kill off the spirit parasites and now you're bargaining with one?

Why the hell would anyone want to be human anyway?

Most humans i've seen around here are only in it for themselves. You took some random man's fingers, I don't even know how you lost them in the first place. I somehow get the feeling it was your own fault though.

So congratulations, you've failed at even trying not show how human you are by doing a human action.

You're angry? Good, so am I. I am angry that your sister was too dumb to know when to stop. I'm angry that we couldn't agree on anything. I'm angry that you're imitating her because she's all you've ever known. I'm angry that you're making the same mistakes she did and that I did. That blood leads to more blood, and murder leads to more murder.

And we're all to fucking human to stop.

he could put his feet on the chair so his legs are not dangling like that, then drop the grenade under the chair so that the chair works as a crude makeshift barrier between him and the explosion after he drops it. It most likely won't free him from all injuries, and the loud sound of the explosion might leave him deaf, but at least it might raise his chance of survival. Worth a shot.

Either that, since his legs are free, he could kind of sort of stand and bend forward a little, taking the chair up with him on his back and attempt to move towards you and kamikaze himself at you I guess (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UEajhyHhqSU)

I think I'll let Scarred choose between those two options unless she has a better idea.

That said, I wonder if he has any family members or best friends who might want "justice" or "vengeance" against you for his kidnapping, torture, and possible death against your blinding anger?
No. 928772 ID: a88088

Personally i prefer the first choice of using the chair as a barricade, but lets see what my partner says.
No. 928808 ID: 30f295

Yeah that would be the first one would be the best option.


I have a suspicion this is all a bluff. The average grenade actually has less material than a standard stick of TNT, only about 2oz of material, but it is capable of more explosive power. Plus there’s the issue of shrapnel, and depending on what that chair is made of, the hostage will probably end up losing their hands and their legs if they don’t immediately die. But the part I can’t wrap my head around, is why is she sticking around? She’s already stated that the blast could kill her if he just drops it, and the confirmed kill radius for a grenade is 5 meters, and with the casualty radius being around 15 and she is more than close enough for it to do the job, she’s not getting away unscathed. Boy, wouldn’t it just be so ironic to start to run only to have your new fingers blown away by shrapnel?

So she is either bluffing to be cruel for whatever reason, I wouldn’t put it past her. Or, she really is stupid enough to have created a death trap for herself. I may not be good when it comes to social things, but on the topic of weapons and killing, I know more than my fair share.

So she can either realize that she’s made a very large error and put the pin back in the grenade, because once he lets go of the lock that will trigger the detonation, both of them have about 3 seconds.
No. 928817 ID: e51896

interesting. In any case, I still choose option 1 because if it isn't a bluff, that would be the only action I can think of that can give him even a tiny chance of survival.
Also, the blast might not effect Spirit contaminator as I think she can regenerate. She did say she tried to tear off the spirit parasite part of her head, only for them to grow back.
But then again, she is weak against fire sooo...

I also wonder, didn't Essence say that Happy specifically told her not to kill anybody that isn't immortal or something? I wonder if that order applies to Blizulia as well. But it might not matter if Spirit Contaminator is suicidal, or if this man is immortal in some way to give her the okay to kill him. I think I remember explosions is one of the few ways to kill someone who became immortal through the ash tree?

ehhhh, I'm rambling and wasting time. You already know my choice, Blizulia.

So you’re not stupid, you’re just suicidal.

I have a question for you. What kind of place is the world that your sister told you about?
No. 928900 ID: e51896

Hummm... No. I'm not going to give him advice anymore because I don't think he is going to listen to a single word we'll say... only because we are not directly communicating with him, but instead you are the one relaying the messages we say to him. You did mention that he is unaware of everything that is happening around him after all, so he might think you are still a cosplayer, but with mental health issues who hears dumb voices that don't exist in her head trying to talk to him (no offense to you or us), while he does not realize us voices do in fact exist trying to speak to him.

That said unless we can directly communicate with him, he isn't going to listen to a single advice we say if you're the one relaying what we say to him. Perhaps if we had my totem, I can speak directly to him, but I don't want to rely too much on magic anymore to solve all our problems. We've been getting by pretty far on our wits alone without using strange powers as a handicap, much like the long fight we just had

No, I think if we want to save him at this point, we'll have to take a different approach and attempt to instead persuade you to let him go instead through negotiating.

Scarred, I'm not going to jump to conclusions on what she is (like being suicidal). nobody can really truly 100% comprehend the perspective of another person, really.

ok, Blizulia. I'll start by asking this: you say that you are doing these horrible things to this gardener to show you never want to be like us, nor want to be. But don't you find it a little ironic that with you relaying our advice we are trying to give to him, wouldn't that mean in a way, you are in a sense, posing as us giving advice to him as a voice like us? Just something for you to think about.

But that's beside the point though, what I really wanted to ask is, is this true anger you are feeling, or is the anger you are feeling actually hiding how you really feel with your anger acting as a mask.
I'm not accusing that you are imitating emotions again, I'm just saying that people, like Scarred (big example here) tend to hide their weaknesses, sadness, misery, or fear with intense anger to cope with the reality of the situation they are dealt with. a lot of times, we don't even realize we use anger as a mask to hide our emotions. I'm sure you sensed it when Scarred was screaming at you.
(Sidenote, letting out your true emotions instead of hiding it under a masked emotion is sometimes stronger)

I only ask if what you are feeling is true anger because if you were truly angry at us, I would think that you would of kidnapped someone who we actually knew first hand in this timeline, like a true friend or ally to torture, just to stick it to us as revenge and prove a point... but instead, you chose an innocent bystander who was just minding his own business, probably just trying to get by in the miserable hellhole our world has become. I wonder why you chose him?

Also, I'm not going to assume you are depressed, and hiding your depression with anger, but the way you are laying there, waiting for the bomb to explode in some fashion if he drops it... it reminds me of Ana when we were defusing a bomb, when she was laying right next to 1993 when she felt so defeated after boxhead, one of her only friends at the time, betrayed and left her... just awaiting for the bomb to explode and for the release of death. Seeing you do that makes me sad in some way. But.. I wonder, how will Happy feel if you die from this explosion? Doesn't he see you as one of his daughters? he just lost Essence, and now he's going to lose you too? I know you said you don't care about what happens to yourself, but doesn't Happy and your other friends care about you? More importantly, do you care about them?
No. 928901 ID: 2e9fd7

Precisely why I asked her what the world is.

According to people like Essence, the world is a cruel place and you must be cruel to survive in it. In my experience the world, and by extension people, are like a sewer, what you put into it is exactly what you’ll get out of it.

It’s a humorous analogy, but it’s true. The world is only as cruel as you let it be, if you put cruelty into the world you will get it back in trumps. It’s why in the end I had more pity for Essence. She never saw her own logical fallacies, if you are cruel and viscous thst will just continue the cycle and the world can never heal because cruel people won’t let it heal. She claims we didn’t have what it took to survive in the world, and in a way she was true, but people don’t want to survive, people want to live. People who reject the mentality of kill or be killed are the stronger ones because they have the courage to reject the way the status quo.

So how strong are you?

Does he truly need help from us, or is that you need help from us? Because you are now looking desperate to see how we do stuff.

In any case, enough fooling around. I realize the gloves he is wearing looks to be too big for him and are pretty loose. Depending on how tight you tied the bomb on his glove on his arm, and if he is very careful, he should be able to sort of slip his hand out of the glove while holding the bomb and glove at the same time, and then just throw the bomb and glove away, at least as far as he is allowed to throw it with his wrist tied to the chair. His glove looks loose enough to slip his hand out of without using his other arm to remove it.

This again depends on how tight the bomb is tied to his glove and wrist to even remove his glove, and this also depends if he is willing to listen to a single word you say, Blizulia. Like I said, after the way you treated him, he will most likely not listen to any advice you give him... Unless you probably say something like "Oh crap, I hope you don't realize the gloves you are wearing are loose enough to remove without using your other arm for help, and just throw the glove with the bomb away from you. I totally forgot your gloves are too big for you to slip out of. Shit." or something similar.

And what made you think I'm being driven mad? I'm just throwing out ideas to see what works.
No. 929047 ID: eb97d8

You honestly think so highly of us? I’ll chose to take all of that as a compliment.

And as for the whole thing about doing the impossible, we just do our best with what we’re given. Personally, I consider how we ended that fight a failure to do what I really wanted, which was keep her from Essence from hurting herself or others, but I didn’t want to kill her, the same way I don’t want you to die either.

With this scenario you’ve given us, you have all the power here and you know it. All we can do it talk with you, because your life does have value and if Essence was the sister you considered her as, she would... well honestly she would think it’s hilarious at first and then find some way stop you, probably while also calling you stupid for trying.

You’re the only one who can put the grenade away, I’m trying to convince you to stop this because that’s how we all win. In fact fuck it, I don’t care about winning what I care about is doing the right thing, because believe it or not Blizulia, I loved your sister, and I don’t want you to die too.

We’ll do what we can, but you’re the one who can fix this better than we can.

That would work but aren’t his arms also tied to the chair? Actually if he can slip out of the glove on his right hand he can work on getting his other hand out and he can throw the other glove that has the grenade attached to it.

The tragedy of this whole situation is somewhat underwhelming given the almost comedic stance in which our hostage is left.

No. 929113 ID: 0c2d4a

That grednade is taking quite a while to explode. Is it a dud?

Since his legs are free, perhaps he can walk out that exit behind him taking the chair with him on his back and find a solution to this dilemma outside?

I know what the hell was that? And who was that other voice we just heard? Where did the hell did that come from?

And yeah, I guess he can just get up on his own? He can't hear us, or if he can... I don't know. Hey Mr. Hostage, give us a signal if you can hear us? Nod your head or something?
No. 929118 ID: 8b660e

And grenades won't explode until you let the trigger go, pulling the pin is like flipping the safety on a gun but instead of keeping the trigger from being pulled the pin keeps it in place from setting off the detonation. if he lets it go, then comes the ka-boom.
