The Unoffically Official Morgan LeFlay Appreciation Thread

So yeah.

I'm not going to lie. I am a massive fan of this addition to the the Monkeyverse.

So I'm starting up the Morgan LeFlay Appreciation thread for those of us that are of like mind.

I love the dynamic she brings to the game, and the possibilites.

Was The 'Brush joking when he asked her to sail away with him to pillage and plunder? Who knows? all I know is I think it's going to bug a LOT of people for a month!

I also really dub her character design, something a little more overtly sexual about it, that would usually give her the upper hand over most pirates, but it doesn't faze our favorite mighty Pirate.

though am I the only one that noticed in the opening swordfight that Guybrush made NO offensive strikes, instead only parrying and swatting away morgans incoming attacks.. something I thought was pretty chivalrous.

anyway.. let the discussion begin!

  • @Rather Dashing said: I honestly think that she, in most respects, is far more competent than Guybrush himself.

    Yeah, well unfortunately, the way it works out is that Guybrush has the luck of Homer Simpson, so that would probably mean that LeFlay is going to bite the big one a la this guy:

  • It's youth and stamina(Morgan) versus old age and treachery. (Guybrush)

    "I've been hearing stories about you all my life"

    "Aren't you tired yet?"

    Yes. Morgan has the advantage for most of the fight. Mainly foe two reasons which is more important I leave to you Guybrush is off his game with Elaine seeming to like LeChuck and worried about Winslow. "Head in the fight!" and Morgan started on her terms, (A plain swordfight) but Morgan forgot Guybrush's gift for altering the enviroment. Her sudden realisation is marvellous to behold.

    Morgan also is somewhat tempting. Remember when Guybrush met Elaine. If you played SOMI:SE Elaine was just as enthusiastic as Morgan is.

  • @Jake said: I wasn't around for the design of that scene, but my read on it since playing it was more that Guybrush was always on the defense because Morgan was simply better with a sword than Guybrush, but Guybrush could gain the upper hand because, while he's competent enough, he'd for some reason end up combining a bucket of fish with tipping a boat with a seagull with a plank and win that way.

    I replayed Spinner last night, and I watched the animations again.
    Watch the 'Brush. His face doesn't change it remains cool, calm and Netrual, as if he had done this a million times. His body isn't twisting in the manner of someone who is fighting for his life, he's parrying and diverting everything that morgan can throw at him AND he's thinking how to alter the environment at the same time. His movements and attitude are those of someone who has barely got to think about his opponent, so that he can concentrate on the "tasks" at hand. I mean Take the "Mast" Dialouge tree, He has time to talk about the mast 3 or 4 times while the person he is fighting is throwing her best moves at him, and he's talking as if it's a stroll in the park.

    It might just be that this stuff wasn't worked into the animation, but as it stands it's very much how it looks to me.

  • Ironically Morgan misses an oppurtunity to deal with Guybrush because she thinks it's a ploy. (when you jump onto the mizzen and taunt). The mast is if you listen to the dialog repeatedly is how he gets round the no insult sword fighting. Morgan had the advantage. A subtle one. (She got overconfident and annoyed though). But generally parrying takes less effort than attacking.If Guybrush was attacking I reckon Morgan could parry and talk as well.

    But it really isn't how he gets around it.
    She really doesn't get hyper pissed about it until like 4 or five inspections.
    if it was his way "Around" it it would have happened the first time you inspected the mast.

    She's mildly annoyed after the first mention. though. Okay most people will miss it, but I think that's what makes most in story sense. Not that it's necessary to progress. But back to Morgan.

    Oh man, that whole "That's the mast!" stuff had me in stitches! Morgan getting more and more annoyed. Brilliantly done XD

  • You guys have probably seen this in the Fan Art Thread but I wanted to put it here, since this was the thread that inspired me to do it.
    It's still pen and ink and yes it's an old scanner

    @Duate said: i think it's less guybrush trying to show her the magic, and more that that's just the way he is. he'd not really the type to attack a woman, even if she is trying to gut him.

    guybrush is a good man.

    The idea was the Morgan was the one coming after him, so thus Morgan is initiating all the attacks. He's not being chivalrous, he just didn't really want to fight her.

    And she was better than him. If you watch, one time he completely misses his parry and she almost gets him. The whole reason he's tries to catapult her away is because he can't beat her in a straight sword fight.

  • Excluding Guybrush and after Murray, Morgan is probably my favorite MI character now.

    I'm hoping the story arcs so that she ends up with Guybrush. I just don't care about Elaine anymore, LeChuck can have her. She clearly doesn't appreciate Guybrush, despite his faithful devotion (so far). Sure their one-sided marriage makes for some great jokes for the viewer, but It's getting old fast I think.

    Anyway, I can't wait for the next episode. ToMI is excelent so far IMO. :)
