Kind of a big plot hole since EMI... fix telltale?

What ever happened to LeChuck's demonic Army of the Damned? I mean the two pirates from CMI (with the "big boned" one), Murray, and Bob are all some of the funniest MI characters. Could we at least get a "Meanwhile... Under Monkey Island..." and have them all on the ship wondering where LeChuck is and why he hasn't come back?

I miss those guys...

  • Seriously I don't know what you guys are talking about, is that a fan game or something?

    *crazy eyes* I LOVE how TMI takes place right after Guybrush and Elaine's 10 year honeymoon following CMI. I hope they make a 5th game after this, TMI, the 4th one.

    Ahem.

  • So you are a member of the undead. What happens when your hellspawned flame-bearded boss is destroyed by a skinny blonde guy?

    a) The Grim Reaper Theory - You quetly turn into a small pile of bones as your soul is sent to rest. Since Murray is still around, I guess not.
    b) The Average Joe Theory - Umm, try to live a normal life and blend with the rest of the Carribean population.
    c) The Jolly Roger Theory - You do what pirates do when their captain kicks the bell - choose a new captain, steal the nearest ship and sail wherever the wind takes you.
    d) Something else?

  • LOL would be funny to see some undead pirates trying to live a normaly life. maybe now since le chuck is human his crew are too

    sounds very pirates of the carribbean like...

    maybe they just...died?! (pure sarkasm)

    i mean they were pretty dumb, maybe without a leader they just spread throughout the carribbean and vanished through different reasons.

  • I never realised you could kill Bob, I much prefer watching Herman's rather amicable conversation with him as if they've always been mates.

    I was never keen on the skeleton army in Curse of Monkey Island. In the first game LeChuck is a more traditional ghost pirate with a ship, and a ship needs a crew. They were mostly played for laughs. LeChuck's Revenge did away with them, and it's no coincidence that this game has the most effective portrayal of him. No motley crew of gangly skeletons, just a long-suffering henchman, a voodoo priest, and one evil rotting bastard with a massive grudge. I particularly liked how he didn't even care about Elaine in that game (from Curse onwards, his infatuation with her gave him what tvtropes would call "Badass Decay". He seems to be regaining an edge a bit in Tales though).

  • The skeleton army of the undead in CMI was awesome.

    But I'm guessing something happened in the never made MI4, because at the start of TOMI, they're gone.

  • thats what i like to hear about MI4 Fury

    And just because we dont see them doesnt mean they are gone, we never did see LeChuck's ship

    Good point. Maybe they showed up in Mi4 and Guybrush defeated them. Who knows?!?

    Heck, they may even appear in a later instalment of TOMI.

  • Guys, you are forgetting that we are missing a Monkey Island adventure. The beginning of chapter 1 implies that there was pretty much a whole adventure going on between EMI and ToMI.
    I´d call Tales of Monkey Island Monkey Island 6, with the 5th part actually missing; as a gag by the developers, and possibly meant to explain plotholes like these.

    Everything unexplainable must have its reason in Guybrush´s quest to get the ingredients to turn that cutlass into an anti-LeChuck weapon.

    lol I think that's a well established fact. They said that in the interviews.

    We know this. We're just speculating how that happened.
