crow scouts

You know, we always think about the poor recruits interrupting Cullen and Quizzie - Jim, the fandom is looking at you.
BUT
What about Leliana’s scouts? Can you imagine their faces when they discover that their dark boss has a bunch of nugs, and one of them is called Schmooples II? And then Charter starts to reflect, and understands that Sister Nightingale is the one who has brought the nugs on the surface from Orzammar? And when they have to name their crows and the scouts all pick names as “Darkstorm”, “Silverwings”, “Nightfeathers”, “Frank”, and Leliana comes with “Baron Plucky”?
I think we need to think more about what’s going on in that tower.

The Black Ravens as things my Girl Scout troop has said

I’m going to be making comics for at least most of these, by the way, so look forward to getting some context for Badger’s quote

Native American Participants in the Battle of Little Bighorn

One hundred and forty years ago, from the evening of June 25 to dusk on the 26th, 1876, Lt. Colonel George Armstrong Custer and his troops engaged in battle with the Sioux and Cheyenne at the Battle of Little Bighorn, Montana.

As was often the case from the Colonial Era through Expansion, Native Americans aligned on both sides of the battle, although in this case, only a few Army Scouts were involved with Custer.

Sioux & Cheyenne Leaders at the battle include Gall (Sioux) and Dull Knife (Northern Cheyenne). U.S. Army Scouts include Curley (Crow) and Bloody Knife (Sioux & Ree).

See the first report of Custer’s defeat, telegraphed by his commanding officer, Gen. Alfred H. Terry:

“…it is my painfull duty to report that day before yesterday the twenty fifth inst a great disaster overtook Gen Custer + The troops under his Command…”

Small Friend

Marcel was lucky that he had been lurking around the battlefield of the current mercenary teams when the world had suddenly become so much bigger and scarier. Magic had shrunken him down until he was no taller than 7 inches, measured from head to the tips of his tentacles.
Out in his forest lake he’d most likely have to deal with some animal trying to eat him, but here so close to the bases it was much more likely to end up squised under someone’s boot or killed by a random explosion.
It was not easy and took quite a while but he made it into the BLU base and went on to look for Crow. Surely the Scout could help him survive this madness.
