Tensaided's a sweetie, really, but he's also a competitive, trash-talking beast of card playing.
And Rich is telling the truth! He didn't even hit on Sarah once! Or so I'm claiming, death of the author, yadda yadda yadda.
I had wanted to include something about him having learned it was against tournament rules to hit on people during games, as that actually would convince Rich to not do that even if he disagreed with it, but it just didn't work to include it.
Obligatory reminder that there was a "during the tournament" narration box a couple comics back when Grace was clarifying an issue with the plot--I mean, having an internal moral debate.
It's a detail I imagine will be easy to notice and recall on later reading, but on an as-it-goes basis, I've noticed those bits of narration can get forgotten rather easily.
