That first post sort of made it seem like there was only one of them, but I actually made a few of them. The second one I made is up.

I would recommend putting all your comics into the original post.

And...Is that the Dancing Fox Inn? From The Freeform Roleplaying Games Section?

That takes me back. I remember roleplaying there constantly a while back. I don't think I was very good at it, though, since nobody liked the stories I was a part of. Or my characters. I think I left because people were getting too mean. I don't know what it's like nowadays...

Very interesting comic. I will continue to read more.

Mmmmm....promising comic. Has solid artwork, no immediate textual errors (aside from "Drink" being capitalised in the first strip) and most importantly a slightly saracastic and wry sense of humour. Will add to watch list.

I'm still trying to figure out a good size to make everything because Photobucket shrinks these when they run long, and the tend to run long.

Good, very good. Go on. :smallamused:

Two ideas for your photobucket problem:
- Cut longer strips into several pages to be released at once
- Check your setting, you can raise the maximum file and pixel size considerably if you haven't already

What do you mean "Five days since an update"?
I'll have none of this heresy in my thread!
Fifth Comic is up.

Nevitan
2010-07-16, 06:37 AM
Not one reply?
Well let the record show that it was because of all the other posters of the playground that I was forced to make a double post to tell everyone that the new comic is up.
So any infractions should be sent to all the other posters, as opposed to me.

Comments galore!
Well, three of them at least. And... and... is that a discussion I see? :smallbiggrin:
As a thank you, I'll release the seventh comic only two days after the sixth! Almost like how a real schedule should work!
Oh, and I've added Titles!
Ha ha, I got you to re-read my comics to see how he titles pertain!

Heh heh. Mean trick, paladin. Good is not always nice...

By the way, in panel 5, is the elf fixing her hair for the alignment test?
"'Cause mostly I'm good-aligned, but split ends are evil!"

Yet another comic in the arts craft section I'll be stalking

that paladin does seem to have a veeery loose opinion on alignment. I mean they're bandits, not demons, why does he want to kill all of them?

Is Joel casting something on Will?

Anyway, great comic yet again.

We don't know how powerful these bandits are. They could be a pretty large number, or part of an organization. And the paladin will probably give most of them the chance to repent, like he did with the Orc.

Probably Misdirection. It fools divinations, and Detect Evil is a divination spell.

I didn't think he killed the orc either, even after she refused the chance to surrender. Unlike the guy who Will stabbed, the orc didn't have x'ed-out eyes when last seen, just a "Hey, that hurt, you bastard!" expression.

She's posing, after all she is an elf.

He has an energetic personality and kill is a strong word to use. He isn't bound to what says though.

In other news I have it on good author-ity that the Eight comic is ready to be read.

Nevitan, Strip #8 was a good comic -- it revealed more of the personalities of both the characters involved, it cleared up a question from the previous strip, and it established a sense of scale for the cave they're exploring -- there just wasn't all that much that needed saying afterwards, though. Comics that raise mystery spawn lots of speculation, while comics that settle mysteries leave the audience saying, "Ah, so that's how it is."

Both kinds are good, but they won't provoke the same numbers of comments. :smallsmile:

Ladies and Gentlemen I present the person who was supposed to be writing this comic. Also the person who I stole the title from.

It's actually just some song-like sounds that I've found people tend to make. It's not any particular song.

mucat
2010-08-06, 08:38 PM
I like the scat-singing bard. It must drive her friends nuts that she gets to lounge around and play music while they fight, but they can't even chew her out for it because she's actually being perfectly effective at helping them... :smallsmile:

Good for Joel. I was feeling sorry for that cleric already last strip...I think it was the way she had never even for one panel stopped making the (oo) expression. Didn't seem like her heart was in the fight.

You know, spoils of war is actualy how mercenary were paid for a long time, so actualy he'd be pretty much in his right here.

How is the key-word here.

He is obviously being paid by other means (the employer's own income) and as such he do not have the rights to claim anything but that.

The fact that mercenaries are only bound by honour and in some regions, laws is worth considering, though.

But what does it matter? He gets money and the others get to save people, everybody is happy! :smallbiggrin:

mucat
2010-08-19, 05:31 PM
Layala's puzzled/annoyed expression in the last frame is the first time I've ever seen her look surprised by anything. Usually (including the beginning of this strip) she's three moves ahead of Will, and calmly tolerates his greed because she's anticipated his actions and figured out how to make them work in her favor...

But he could be even happier if he took more money while the others would still have the same nice warm glow of knowing people are safe*, wich is priceless, hence woth much more than any money the rogue could take.** Hence why he's getting burned in the deal and feels rightfully outraged.
See, it's mathematical, you can't argue with that logic !
(Unless you are a paladin, that is. A paladin with a big scary hammer.)

*Albeit a litle poorer but what does it matter ? They just had not to be robbed in the first place, anyway.

Apparently Layala thought everything through, she must really have every little problem - involving the party sticking around indefinitely - covered, huh?

@^^ as for 3.5 school specialization, a specialist Wizard(Joel the Necromancer in this case,) can pick almost any 2 schools of magic he wanted back at lvl1.\
EXCEPT Divination, that's a rule for all wizards.
so, as far as we're concerned, he may have picked anything else,
let's see:
Abjr:uncertain; Cnjr:NO; Div: no; Ench:uncertain; ILsn: NO, obviouly; Tran:NO(Spider climb (http://i337.photobucket.com/albums/n365/b_nebb/comics/Unbelievable010.png) row 4); Evoc:debatable(lightning bolt here (http://i337.photobucket.com/albums/n365/b_nebb/comics/Unbelievable010.png) is from which caster?)

1. don't worry about a few days late... 90(+-)% of the time it's worth it.

2. you have many "best ones yet" (in chronological order,first page, even if one or two don't count), it's a good one, but I have a good feeling that the next few, as well as the last one are/will be better.

The cameo of master thief Diablo Deathbringer is hilarious, and could not go by unappreciated.

Also, I feel as if your attention to what's important in illustration is growing more keen (although not necessarily with vorpal or icy burst qualities).

Was the second to last panel inspired by inception?
