Uh-oh super sword. Anyway TWC image Rin-Lin in ropes, keeping with the current theme. So this Friday is V-Day and normally We don't let holidays (or as I call them, "holidays") interrupter a new page but I set the donation story dead line as V-Day in my head, and I'm two pages away. I'm 85% sure I can bust my ass and get it done by Friday... but that would mean I'll have to bitch out and just have the V-Day strip. So the fight will continue Tuesday and for all the fine people that donated to Jason's dog just hang in there! I'm working as hard/fast as I can. And I should also mention when I say V-Day I mean we're doing the Sex Drive again this year. So come back Friday for some scantily clad dragon girls.

Is that... a _smirk_ on Loth's face in the insert?

Loth probably knows that it is not Tylan's Blade, because it used to hang on the wall in her bedroom

Maybe she also saw the "Made In Taiwan" label on the hilt.

E-Gads and Gadzooks! Methinks Loth's opponent is...overcompensating for something.

Why not? It would seem to be a perfectly cromulent epithet, appropriate for the setting of the action.

Now this is proof it isn't god's sword or there wouldn't be anything left of Loth's

Yeah, even defending

One might expect the Treori to make weapons of significantly greater durability than even a high quality human weapon. Hers may already be magically enhanced or the work of a master Treori craftsman with centuries of experience and the secrets of dragon forging or blah blah whatever, and so a blow from the supersword that would shatter a normal weapon merely damages it.

As a reenactor, fights like this make me cringe, a sword WAY too large to ever be effective or usable, with a lot of chat, and "master" fighters who fight like they've never seen a lick of training or combat (look at how open the guy is in that last panel, a good quick slash and Loth could slice him down the stomach, and essentially end it there unless he has some healing power). I'm not criticizing the comic of course, real fights are quick and uninteresting. This is definitely more exciting!

That might be so, in our universe, which has no magic, but since this is (supposedly) a very powerful magical sword, it's entirely possible that the magical energy alters the sword's perceived mass, or weight, or inertia, or supplements the wielder's strength or speed or reflexes, or all of the above. An eight foot sword with the heft and quickness of a small dagger might be quite useful, particularly since your opponent would not be expecting it to move so quickly. In the panel you mention, Loth has stepped back far enough to avoid the enormous reach of his sword, and so is not close enough to gut him, and in the time it took her to close the distance, his superfast magic sword could be brought back down to parry. Or something like that. The point is: magical world=different rules apply.
