Ah balls. More characters (And now possibly an entire freaking colony) And this Joe’s sister conspiracy is getting silly. Now there are two girls with unknown older brothers. I bet Annika will vanish from the colony before Joe gets back (Or some other crazy reason for them not meeting) My bet is on series of coincidences meaning they never see each other.

Finally, evil (or atleast dickish) humans. I’m gunna ignore the possibility of Karen being Joe’s sister until more prove is given. For all we know she could be the sister of that nightstalker guy. Whatever his name is.

@Mzilla, nightstalker aaron already has a little sister, Nina…I, personally, am already attached to Annika and want her to be Joe’s sister! If she isn’t, that’s gotta be the craziest red herring EVER! Joe, I’m so glad chapter 8 is finally here! Great scene, I know this chapter will rock! I’ll definitely vote every day, and have my friends vote too!

I think Karen might be joes sister for plot while Anika is just a plot twist.

It never occurred to me that Anika could be Joe’s sister because I never assumed she could be due to her apparent background. Karen almost immediately gave me the impression of being his sister though, so I’m thinking she probably is. After all, she DID mention having a missing brother, whereas Anika said nothing of the sort and acts like she doesn’t even have a brother other than Jeremy or whatever that kid’s name was. XD It could also be that Karen is wearing a greenish outfit, which could be some sort of symbolism, and she has a bit of a similar face. Only a bit, but a bit is enough. XD

@Joe I read your reply to my comment on the previous episode, and I wanted to say that I am glad it is in progress! I think I voted for you but my keyboard is having issues and other such stuff is happening so I’m not sure if my vote was counted or not. Perhaps I somehow didn’t complete the process or something. Anyway, do you think you could hint at whether or not I am right in my guesses as to Karen’s relationship with Joe? I like to have a sense of whether or not I’m right because it puts me in a deducing mood that I find to be incredibly fun! In fact, I will make another guess right now. Tell me if I am right or not. Greybane and/or one or more of the other characters will end up having some kind of issue with this new colony and their military in the future, and New Hammerston will probably end up forming relations or something and that colony will end up in a better situation due to no longer needing rations. How right am I?

For a split second I thought Greybane clean took that dude’s head off, due to how the sprite looked.

I’m trying to see if I can get anyone from my forum to vote for this. Hopefully they’ll at least look into it. As to the scene, I’m really curious about what this new colony makes you do. I’m also curious if they’re the people that Nick ran into way back when he was going to Machine City with Scrufflebeck. Since they seem to be so close, it would certainly seem so.

Getting a feeling those Dragoons are just total bastards. Their leader may be trying to protect folks, but it seems like the rest of them are worse. Of course, their leader could be just as bad, just smarter than some.

If they’re as bad as it is starting to feel already, I’d not be surprised if women are harassed or worse, and men forcibly recruited or put to work just to earn a living, probably not a very good living either.

Suddenly, I’m thinking they should make contact with some really angry protagonists from the other colony coming to liberate those enslaved by these dragoons.

And at this point, I figure I’m assuming way too much already, making wild guesses, and probably missing the mark, by a mile. Still, going to look forward to the next part again, and hoping they’ve not hurt this particular young woman already, other than this unnecessary death (since that’s undeniable already). Just saying hope they’ve not put her through abuse.

@Winterfeline: not that difficult to imagine what healthy women of child-bearing age would be forced into. Perhaps Joe is riffing off “The Handmaid’s Tale” a bit…

I’m pretty sure they both said they had 2 other siblings, Annika being the youngest and Joe being the oldest… I cant remember if the middle one was a guy or a girl though…
