    Default Of Books and Barbarians


    An OotS-styled comic about a not-so standard orc and her adventures across a fantasy land that has many traits we fantasy fans may find familiar. Join us while we follow the adventures of Kagra as she is wrapped up in things that no amount of reading can truly prepare her for.

    This story is not written with any game-system in mind.

    Currently has a random and irregular update schedule.

    Very very nice. And you are able to pull of the high detail/high quality OotS art as well. Lots of detail drawn on your characters, with differing design choices, while still being able to tell what they are wearing.

    Keep this up.

    Thanks!

    I'm a few comics ahead at this point and one or two of them are not quite as good looking as I'd like, but hopefully I can come into my own with this. It's been a looooong time since I've used the OotS style seriously.

    I'm surprised to see you actually doing something in a Oots style, Bright. I don't normally read fan comics, but I suppose I'll have to keep an eye on this.

    You're handing over a book that should never be opened. To a librarian. Who has just finished admitting she wants to read it.

    Makes sense. That would explain why teddy bear had the 'x' as its eyes.

    Nice art, by the way. And oh, you elves. Ever the jerks.

    Lucky it wasn't bitten off, Kagra.

    ...Also, am I the first person who thought "Y'know, she should tape a wire into that and use it to power a reading light with clean green energy that's also necromantic purple energy?"
