    Thanks for the link! It occurs to me after reading it, if everyone avoided the Owl's fallacies in online discussions, 99.9% of online discussions would cease to exist.

    ok, i'm calling it:

    The nun isn't crossed.

    Not to say she isn't infected with something, but she pretty clearly does NOT have the plus face. She's an X if anything. Boxer is a character that's already been introduced. He's not GK ( that's bearded baldie who accompanies the nun. Ashoke maybe?

    @Scorinaldi- I was recently thinking the same thing about Ashoke, especially considering his brain damage from the Game Keeper strangling him. It's pretty much canonically established with Mathias from the Crossed Conquers All arc that brain damage inhibits the Crossed virus from manifesting in the normative symptoms, e.g. raping, killing, cannibalizing, etc. With this in mind, Sister Teresa's epilepsy becomes the likely cause for her behavior and capacity for forethought.

    The only qualm I have with Ashoke being the Garbage Bag Mummy is the differing body builds. The Garbage Bag Mummy is a large imposing figure, many people have mistaken the GBM for Jackson because of his/her size, strength and skills in combat. Ashoke is seems to be a leaner build more akin to Shaky. But who knows, maybe crossed Ashoke got hella ripped; or perhaps there are a lot more garbage bags wrapped around him than we(I) suspect.

    Greetings, all. Long time lurker, blah blah blechhh. Wanted to jump right into the deep end of the rampant speculation pool: is it at all possible that the big bad mama is NOT the nun at all? Sorry if this has been broached before; I haven't seen all the posts on the storyline. But do we really know what's going on in the area where that veil is stapled? What if someone cut the nun's face off, and stapled it over his/her own?

    Things that make you go ughhhhhhhhhmmmmmm. . .

    That's that then. There goes the last hope of any real improvement in Cava's dental hygiene. But there's bound to be a Dentist on the driftfleet, and this fact alone should swing any undecided Cava posse into deciding to leave Rab and Don's Caledonian Giggle Syndicate for a Pirates life on the ocean wave. (And regular six monthly check-ups, with optional scale and polish)

    Also finally, confirmation that Sister Tripod is crossed after all. And more intrigue as we are drip fed little tiny bits of information concerning BinBag. He's left handed, and uncrossed. That's why Sister Sloppy gave him the old toothpolisher to rape, before the Black Watch began their inventive meat tenderising process of gangrape,infection, and bayonets. Then ate her stringy old arse, no doubt with their own equivilent of a nice Chianti. And did I see the Emperor from Star Wars sitting on one of the stones in his black robes? If he's behind The Crossed, then Yoda might yet turn up with a Jedi contingent.

    In the Blue Corner, Scotland's Champion Sheepfucker, Darth "RamJam" Jackson, the Deathpiper Laird of the Western Isles! And in the Red Corner, Brother BinBag, Champion uncrossed rapecock of Sister Slashfaces Neo-Catholic Templars of the Black Watch. Untried contender, and keen to fight for his Lady's cause, it's as if Myra Hindley and Fred West had a secret lovechild, with the reincarnated spirit of Scotland's last Longpig Butcher of any note, Sawney Bhean. And the Prize? Whoever wins, gets to do a Manson Family carve up of Shaky's Strumpet, Tab and and her wombful of hope.. While Shaky hides somewhere, trembling in fear, making notes as he watches from safety somewhere with the chuckle brothers, Don2 D2, and Rab3PiO doing their Hinge and Bracket routine.

    So, we're calling him brother Binbag, I see.
    Or the Gameskeeper - who wants to lay odds?
    He's certainly someone the sister trusts to do a body grab.

    Faceless, all wrapped up to keep his dress on, and
    wearing boxing gloves so he won't do any nasty without
    Mommie's permission. Crossed or not, he now lives as a dog
    for the sister. Works for me.

    The sister herself is an epileptic. That detail could well mean she's
    is immune, or differently crossed, or what have you.
    Guess we'll all find at, at the Time And Place.

    I do believe that the faceless boxer is the Indian guy. I don't think its the game keeper, but then again, I could be wrong. But I do feel strongly that the faceless boxer is the Indian guy(forgot his name).

    it could be Ashook in the way the nun gave him a tender kiss before getting him to kill the unfortunate dental nurse. The uniform he wears seems 2 fold, as some form of protection but also some form of torture. After all, he can't indulge his Crossedness with boxing gloves on, or with his welders mask in place. (And already confirmed that he talks like a crossed so I would assume is actually crossed).
    Of course, could just be a giant McGuffin and the guy is someone we have never met.
    And the nun was crying when talking about Shaky so yes, this is one of those variant crossed we have seen elsewhere.
    I do think the mysterious bearded guy is the GK though.

    I noticed the hand of the faceless boxer, it seems to be brownish. Plus the Nun took care of Ashook, making sure Shaky didn't kill or leave him behind in the past. So yeah, the way she kiss's his forehead seems like they have some kind of connection. We still haven't seen what happened to Ashook or how the Nun turned crossed. Also, the bearded guy with the hood, that could be the game keeper. The game keeper was left alive, but wounded, so for all I know, he could be the bearded guy with the black hooded robe.

    Hi, it's my first post.

    @HappyDead
    >the bearded guy with the hood, that could be the game keeper.

    I don't know, does he look like the old man on page 8 to you?

    What interests me is the rather weird pose in which the boxer stood and walked on page 2. Was he excited, or could it, if your theories are correct, be the result of the brain damage? Edit: in support of it, during the sortie, he gave a laugh while picking up Shaky's note, IIRC. Ashoke used to laugh too.

    The boxer mummy is wearing fatigues under the bags?
