    Er, you do realize you've got two systems, two settings, and one that can be system, setting, or both, right?

    Bright already answered that, though we talked about using system jokes then, it seems relevant enough in this case:

    It's a prison for the worst evil of the BaBverse - Trespassers who ignore the don't-step-on-the-grass sign!

    *Dramatic lightning*

    Or an army of pixies with unpaid parking tickets. That's quite heinous as well.

    I have a sudden feeling this Highlord guy is incompetent.
    It's probably the crystal studded throne and apparent inability to sit up straight...

    Though I must say... I admire his choice of colour scheme.

    It's a bit difficult to tell, because these guys are all trying to be really mysterious and all, and the other ones were just being mean.

    So apart from them all being Elves and favouring the same kind of polearm, I can't see any other similarities...

    It's similar, but not the same. It's also very similar to the armour worn by those paladins.

    I could be wrong though.

    How about them dark elves from basically everywhere? More specifically from Warhammer though, due to a similar colour scheme.

    Somehow I doubt they're related to the other elves though. That choice in décor is up to no good.

    Also, Ditto on calling Facemask Guy The Mouth of Sauron.

    No, it's not an early comic, but I was working on some more strips for my buffer when I decided to make this:



    It uses my more standard templates rather than the OotSey ones I use for the comic, obviously. Just thought someone might get a kick out of it.

    For anyone in plots run by me, know that I always tailor solutions to those in the plot. The answer may not be obvious, but it's there, and doable by the displayed abilities of the present characters. If you need help or hints, I'll try to be available to provide them.

    Much easier to build a buffer with OotS stuff, yeah. I can make about two or three OotS comics in the time it takes to pump out a single one of my normal styled ones. I could do it, yeah, but I'd worry that the art would come at the cost of missing updates and such. Plus, last time I changed the art in one of my comics to something more detailed it was very much in a transitionary state, and people seemed kinda put off by it. So while I've gotten better in that regard, I'd still kinda worry people would be bothered by the change again.

    Oh well, it's still fun to make!

    She's a librarian. It's like a class ability or a template, or however you want to rationalize it.

    The point being, librarians always get a personality boost. It is trope law.
