Like ringing the dinner bell.
Somehow I get the feeling Ariara is too self-centered to just send a message saying "YO PIRATES HEROLAND IS ACTUALLY WEAK." Rather, I think she might have been planning to attract the oceanic cartel and then blow them all up for the heck of it and make herself the only major pirate left (That or declare herself Pirate Queen.) Naturally this would probably catapult her up a rank or two on the "Most Wanted Criminals" list.
Simple but serious, I guess.
They are not going to take his Shackles off?
I guess making a seperate sprite without shackes is hard work? :P
Alternatively its hard work to remove a shackle if the key to it is fused with a gold statue.
And safer to wait for someone to bring a good saw, than to risk the Judge breaking both wrists if they let Burk punch the shackle.
Since he's no longer the Iron Judge, he had to find another gimmick. Now he's the wrists-stuck-in-block judge. Quite a downgrade but better than nothing.
So evil triumphs? How sad. :(
Exposiition exposiition, rush this out A.S.A.P
In all seriousness, excellent storytelling here : )
UH WHO CARES? AN HOUR? != at least an hour
