Ok, ok, I’m back. Totally forgot about this and just got back to reading it… Last time I was here, the prologue hadn’t quite ended.
… Which is why I’m only just now commenting that the links are completely messed up. The most notable problem of these is that the end of the prologue doesn’t link to the start of the next chapter.

As anyone knows who’s ever played CLUE, no home is entirely free of murder implements.
It’s funny, I would have assumed that Alice’s bare hands would be perfectly serviceable murder implements 😉
That hook… brutal, inefficient, and probably going to get stuck a few times before you get the kill shot… so naturally, it’s the best choice
For some reason I was thinking of Leon Trotsky while drawing this page.

the REASON Philo became an inventor in the first place…

it also puts Alice’s attitude a little more in perspective…… 😉
Any deadly weapon will do. Unless Roderick has touched it. If he has, burn it.
Would you use it while it was on fire or burn it afterwards? Let me help:
Axe soon to be burned: serviceable
