When they said a little off the top don't think they meant that much.

Turnabout is fair play? Eye for an eye?

In this case, I could agree with that sentiment. Lennare is more than a little insane/homicidal and I never did like her. Though, she is experienced and extremely well trained. I doubt Sellah will get the jump on her. Even so, when it comes to such, all it takes is one slip-up or one stroke of (bad/good) luck.

Besides, as they say, "Every dog has his (her) day."

Edit: I am impressed how Minkie, Kurra, Dalai, and Mag Leung can mount and ride a horse with such narrow stirrups. Is the bottom of the stirrup a rod? That should be hard on a paw-like foot, even with sandals. There's little surface area to rest a paw on or give leverage.

Lennare, as well trained as she is, can still be brought down by a skilled archer before she knows what hit her. She who lives by the sword...gets shot by she who don't?

Those stirrups were pissing me off. They're not adjustable at all for length, in fact, no model I found was. You're right though, they should be a different shape. I'm going to fix them before the next time you see them.

In the last panel, is that an ax handle that looks like it is becoming invisible?

No, that's Mirrame's hair. Her head is in that bag.

Well, from Sellah's point of view it probably wasn't the countess' bodyguard that decided her husband had to die, but the countess herself. Also, it is unlikely she could take revenge on a trained bodyguard and assasin like Lennare; the countess, on the other hand, has now lost both bodyguards...

As per Biblical History, or Ancient Martial History, a stone or rock thrown from cover or from a small distance over rough ground, can and will disable something your own size.
Then it's simply a case of follow-up with bigger rocks, stones, then a club, as required.
 
Dirty fighting, Yes.
Effective and safe, Yes.
 
As for large residences that may contain multiple guards and your enemy, Fire is one solution, telling tales out of turn is another.
Both are effective in their own way.
 
I would point out that assassins, by their nature, aren't good warriors.
Assassins tend to strike from the shadows, or when your disarmed, unaware, or when you least expect it.

"...a stone or rock thrown from cover or from a small distance over rough ground, can and will disable something your own size."

Good point. Though, it may not be very effective if the enemy is wearing armor.

Not sure what you mean by "telling tales out of turn". Perhaps using deceit to either get the person out of the house or set them up so someone else does the deed?

"I would point out that assassins, by their nature, aren't good warriors.

True enough. The average assassin wouldn't stand a chance against a trained warrior in a fair fight (close quarters). But what about fighting dirty? And what about highly trained assassins? Historical ninjas were taught some martial arts. Even Army Ranger snipers are given some hand-to-hand combat training.

The Vang Gaer are more than just assassins though. They're more like mercenaries. They're sent to eliminate problems when the king doesn't want the political implications of involving his army. They can operate as a single unit or all the way up to platoon size (15-30).

Vang Gaer do sound rather like the shinobi of feudal Japan.

King Stollo would have been smarter to employ a few of is Vang Gaer to kill the Mag Leung king using stealth and deceit, instead of relying on Witch Broqa. Yes, Witch Broqa got the job done. But not without suspicion brought to King Stollo and not without bringing trade to a halt and creating a huge mess. (Not to mention losing Witch Broqa, who was a well-trained spellcaster, Spirit Well seer, and his personal adviser. Broqa should be worth half a dozen Vang Gaer.)
