Heh. Looks like someone let off a little steam. Was this before or after the battle between Ralph, McFly, and the robos? I’m guessing the Blue Circle guys were my boys Earl and Bubba.

I guess this happened before the battle.
Seeing Dixon “Fat Whitey” DuBois, was killed during the assault.

This is correct, right?

Have you read all of it? I’m pretty sure that DuBois was killed by the Sauconys so they could frame Ralph and Eugene. I think the attack came before, while Ralph, Eugene, and McFly were all at that hospital. Then the robos tracked McFly down and…well, you know the rest. Since most of them ended up dead afterward, and it’s pretty clear that there were a lot of them during the attack on the town. Shame about the sheriff, I kinda liked him.

id guess it goes after the battle, and the sauconys were just unlucky about it, since they killed dubois to frame ralph and eugene. presumably the robos were pissed about losing to mcfly, and totald the town just shortly after. cuz you know, right after ralph and eugene were framed, eugene was hospitalized and ralph went chasing off after mcfly. so timeline might be something like:
Ralph and eugene framed- eugene delivered to hospital/mcfly wakes up- ralph/mcfly/robo free for all -mfly and ralph Rehospitalized/ robotic rampage to releave stress of battle.
but thats just my guess.

Either way, whether the robo attack was after or before Ralph and McFly were carried to the BloodWood, it seems Earl can get all better in quick order, Eugene did slice him in two, seems that Chain is more than just a tool for battle; Buba, despite Ralph’s gift, seemed pretty much intact, and I do remember Earl’s “link-leech” from the old profiles…

haha. yes, but if they were sharing health, than neither of them would have survived after. its more than that.

Well, as I figure it Earl can “leech” health from Bubba, who’s got strength in spades. As long as Bubba’s alive, Earl is too, and Bubba doesn’t die so easy.

The two Blue Circle soldiers were clearly Bubba and Earl. The razing of Huck had to occur before their bout with Ralph and Eugene. It wouldn’t make sense for the Saucony brothers to return to the town after killing Dubois. Therefore, the timeline is as follows:

Ralph and Eugene con Huck/Earl and Bubba track them/McFly steals Orb from Robos > Earl and Bubba arrive in Huck/McFly is hospitalized for wounds sustained during heist > Robos attack Huck searching for McFly (hence few casualties but destroyed property) > Dubois killed by Robos or Saucony brothers > Saucony brothers locate and battle Ralph and Eugene > Eugene hospitalized/McFly skips out on bill > Ralph tracks McFly > Mcfly-Ralph-Robos threesome

I doubt it, Ralph and Eugene were damn close to Huck when they were met by the Saucony’s as Ralph just got the 30K, had robos been there they would of noticed something, plus it was probably convient the robos showed up as it covered the Saucony’s murder of DuBois…

Hmm, I think MechaMonkey is pretty close. It makes the most sense in my mind, although I think McFly’s theft of the orb came sometime before. Could be wrong, of course.

Either way, I love Muttro. It’d be my kind of magazine/newspaper. Pretty rad. Good work, daveryan-San. I’m looking forward to seeing how things work out from here.

A lot of you are close, but no one’s got it exactly. Keep in mind that there are more than just the red and blue robos.

When did McFly steal the orb? Prior to the series, or is that lucky coin the orb?

I love the Muttro. Especially the detail. “Senator Acts concerned?” “Slutty celebutant does something slutty?” It’s also pretty cool that Dave Ryan doesn’t make everything in it important to the main story. It makes the setting seem more real, that there are things happening that don’t affect the main characters or even the secondary characters.
