"Confiscated" means you won't get your stuff back. This TSA-approach doesn't make much sense in a world where there's just too many fauna and flora trying to kill you. I'd insist on getting everything back on leaving, regardless of what it is. And enough weaponry to survive in the meantime. These cutthroat "guards" wouldn't fill me with confidence for my own safety.

Yeah, ‘confiscated’ usually means ‘forfeited without return’. On the other hand, I can see why it might get a bit touchy to tell a Danrir their goods will be ... ‘impounded’. ^_^

I think the weapons handed over voluntarily will be returned when they leave, but anything they find on the body searches will be taken. (like for instance, Nemi's hidden needles).

They should have asked for a check on the weapons though to make sure they get them back.

@DLK: Regarding how you're viewing the weapon prohibition - you are correct. Kylie most certainly won't want to lose that Stiles Original!

@Gil: Dangit XD lolol, though you know, microchipping your gear (and your wallet) sounds like a pretty great idea to me!

Continued amazing work, @Rufiangel. I very much enjoy each new update whenever it comes. Thank you.

@A.Moose: Hopefully they'll get their stuff back! Lol. The party is mostly just trying to play by the rules of Caelune at the moment for Nemi's sake. :')

You gotta do all the checks. Remove shoes and socks, declare any personal meds, take your laptop out of its bag, don’t put Cain on the x-ray conveyor belt... and of course they’re EXTRA suspicious of everything on Mikey.

I hope they don’t confiscate Kylie’s charm, though :( We’ve lost it one too many times already.

The mental image of Cain setting off the metal detector just has me face palming and laughing XD poor Cain! An X-Ray would definitely confuse a LOT of people...

Let's just say that the checks aren't so rigorous, so Kylie should be fine~ it's just the one guy that's going to get a pretty thorough check... >~<

I hope they don't evn think on touching Mike's necklace. They have just arrived the city, it's too early to things go horrible wrong

To be technical about it, they're not even in the city yet XD it would be a little *too* early for things to go wrong, right...?

;)

Geez, dude. Calm the heck down. You lose someone to a Danririn or something?

Guess it was good timing Lyn joined up with them given everyone will be weaponless but him, since he's got his FISTS! XD

The Danrir have reserved a special place in their heart~ :')

Lyn's definitely the one you want on your party when weapons are prohibited :D

I bet the tourism industry around these parts is booming.

Caelune doesn't have much tourism XD the next strip will sort of touch upon why, besides the stellar welcome lol

Oh no
I think that they're about to take his necklace.
rufiangel 14th Oct 2020, 12:02 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
That would certainly cause complications >.>a though there's always the option for Mike to just not enter Caelune...

Uh-oh... poor Mikey...

Well, I would not agree to that - I would suggest storing it all... (oh, a Stiles original - confiscated)... =S
rufiangel 14th Oct 2020, 12:03 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Some negotiating might have gone some way to be sure, though the party probably believes they don't have anything "dangerous" on hand... >_>

And don't worry, weapons aren't being confiscated here XD; otherwise Kylie wouldn't agree to it. That's her precious gift from the Defender after all!

This particular Kijinni makes Jinn look positively tolerant in comparison! Also, I think I need to stop watching prison movies... My first reaction to the frisking of Mikey was cavity search!

(going back to my corner now where I belong)

Every time I go to the dentist I get a cavity search.

@DLK: Starsky believes he's just doing his job :')

Also, I'll be honest - writing this scene had me considering all the possibilities. :'D But this is a PG-13 comic (lol) XD

I get the bad feeling they are going to take Mike’s necklaces. :/

It would certainly put Michael is a sticky pickle if they did >-<!!

I would say Kylie should definitely be concerned about the eventual and timely return of her Stiles! She might not want to tell them about its origin, but she doesn't want to lose it either, I would think. The others' possessions would also be important to them. I'm very concerned the group didn't question this further.

All in all they're not being treated very well. Is that just because of Mikey, or are all strangers viewed with this amount of mistrust?

Being busy might help stave off the madness that is 2020. Stay safe, Happy Friday!

rufiangel
The next page should show how equal (or not) their treatment is of Mikey compared to the other party members :'D

As for the madness that is 2020, I am just thankful you guys are still here and reading in the midst of it ;v;* thank you!

Who wants to bet they'll be willingly handed over when things really start heating up?

I certainly hope they have the weapon storage on speed dial if things go to hell in Caelune for whatever reason XD

Hehe Mikey should go one further and blind them with the power of ABS.
rufiangel 16th Oct 2020, 6:10 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
I have to admit I spent some time wondering what ABS stood for. Took me way too long 'cause I'm a dunderhead XD

That said... Mikey must be careful with the power of ABS. With much power comes much responsibility.
