Grouping For Looks is a page-by-page retelling of the Looking For Group saga through the lens of a mirror universe where Cale is a goateed tyrant and Richard is a holy soul trying to set him on a good path.
EXT. FOREST – DAY
A squad of trolls tosses a ragdoll Cale, stripped of its armour and weapons and a bit sticky, to Tim’s feet.
I believe you were challenging me to a duel to the death for leadership of our tribes.
The battered elf quivers as he tries to lift himself off the ground.
The trolls form circles around the two combatants.
Benny leans over to Richard, Krunch on her shoulder.
The idiots got in fireball formation.
Get ready to fire it up.
Richard bows his cowled head.
There will be no fwoosh.
Your loyalty to the elf is-
Misplaced. Think of the lives you can save by sacrificing that one.
First of all, wow.
Second of all, the troll answered a challenge to a duel. It would be dishonourable to interfere.
Benny scowls at him. Over her shoulder, Tim holds up Cale’s limp body.
Styx, bring this one to the shamans. Take the casters to the Pit of Despair. Bring the rest to meet the Lord.
As the victorious trolls close in on, Krunch and Benny scowl at Richard.
Third of all, dismissing the stakes of the duel would also be dishonourable. We’re the trolls’ now.
