EDIT: I made a few dialogue changes to improve clarity.
Note on Judeccan Speech:
The Judeccans do not speak the same language as the Equestrians (English). How could they?
Their cultures developed entirely independently from one another. My original plan was to write out the phonetic sound of Judeccan speech, however I do not want to abandon the audience's ability to understand what the Judeccans are saying. And I'd rather not place subtitles under every Judeccan speech bubble.
So here's how I'm thinking it's going to work:
See that strangely jagged font that the characters on this page are speaking in? Let that suggest that they are speaking Judeccan. While the other font that has been used throughout this comic will continue to represent English dialogue.
Now, I will only use this method when  the Judeccans are alone. If a Judeccan speaks in the presence of an Equestrian, then we will hear what their language sounds like to a foreigner.
After all, language barriers have always been an unfortunate source of conflict.

Is that other seat on side of Judicator ? Does that mean there were more of them ?

You noticed! =) There are indeed three seats present.
But only one is filled.
The other two are cracked, and neglected.

it took me this long to figure it out but i believe the two thrones are for a Unicorn and a Pegasus, ones whom were cast out or killed when Judecca became soley anearthpony race

I just realized Judeccan ponies have cutie marks?  We never really get a good look at Eschar's, if he has one, and they seem to wear a lot of cloaks and stuff to hide their bodies, so that doesn't help things either.  Are all the Judeccans blank flanks?

You know... Every time I read that coughing blood guy speaking I hear Jellal from fairy Tail. I wonder if they'll act the same later. Hmmm. Maybe it's a coincidence.

Ohhh dear. dude is in sorry shape. when blood runs from your mouth after coughing, you are in over your head in shit creek. (when i was coughing up blood it was either mostly congealed or a fine mist.)

Assuming it comes from the lungs anyway, maybe he just bit his tongue?

Oh hi king of Xerxes. How have you been holding up?

Hmm . . . my gut tells me that, Doylistly speaking, that writing all over the walls and around the circle does not mean anything. (As opposed to the common practice of using a substitution cipher of English.) But my heart kind of hopes that it is meaningful and the walls are covered with meticulously translated lorem ipsum.

Don't tell me if I'm right or wrong. That would take all the fun out of it.

Judicator, I'm pretty sure you're dying.

As the heretics do? My ... he already sounds like a huge arse-cavity.

...Wait. Is the Judeccan emperor basically Emperor Palpatine, then?
TheDracoJayProduct's avatar

Well he's not a Sith lord .-. So how do you mean?
Jarkes's avatar
...Yeah, now all of a sudden, even I'm not sure how I made that comparison.

I get where you're coming from. Sketchy, hooded, corrupt emperor leader guy.

So the Judeccans reason to attack Equestria is the same reason the Covenant had to attack Earth in Halo? They see them as heretics?
By the way, I get kind of a "Denethor" feeling with (the) Judicator, except that he's evil and, not just mad (I think)
TheDracoJayProduct's avatar

Not necessarily the same reason. I'm not too familiar with all the Halo lore, but didn't the Covenant just want to activate the Halo ring(s)?
The only reason they called the humans heretics was because they were getting in the way of their cause and their religion.

The Judeccans as a whole have no intention of destroying the planet or the universe (nothing like a halo ring journey).

The Covenant saw humans as heretics because humanity's ancestors fought a war with the creators of the Halo array, the Forerunners, which the Covenant sees as gods (or deity's, whatever).
The Covenant didn't intend to obliterating all sentient life in the milky way, but they thought the Halo Array would send them on "The great journey", and save them from the flood parasite. They didn't know that the Halo array would kill all hosts for the flood
