Questing and Queers

by NyphlyNonsense
Welcome to Questing and Queers, a D&D-themed webcomic with a mix of In-Character and Out-of-Character shenanigans. My motivation with this comic was simply to write a D&D story where the background radiation of the universe was queer rather than cis/het. It will be going up Saturdays. I didn't start posting these until I had a solid buffer, both for my sanity and to make sure I enjoyed it, so this won't be going five comics in and then vanishing. Every one of the players is queer, although I don't expect that to come up immediately. This is a D&D comic that's passively queer, not a queer comic that's passively D&D.

You can also find the comic on tumblr and facebook, just search for Questing and Queers.

I Really, REALLY Don't Like The Holidays
One month hiatus, like it says on the tin. I have the entire next DUNGEON mapped OUT, I have storylines, and then December comes in after laughing and telling November to hold its drink and I don't finish a single panel all month. Winter is just fine for me, so I will be posting again the first Saturday of February, the 2nd.
Good GMing Right Here
This page is very important to me personally. I feel like if we want to change our culture of bad communication and poor emotional intelligence, we need to model healthy communication. It also lets me do character development, and quash any accumulating cringe. Theoretically there was some discussion between Hailey and Lucia, and some commentary from David, a pause between panels 3 and 4, but I did want to just do 1 comic before returning to the action, where people check in.
More Dramatic Expressions, and a lovely picture of Lucia performing a rite to her goddess of the Moon, Keeper of the Sea of Souls, Luna.
Then Again, She Had Fun Last Time...
“The bad place” as Lucia’s term for prison was improvised and I’m happy with it. I feel like I may have overdone the expressions on the page, but hey it was FUN.
I Mean, You Either Know It's A Monodrone or That Means Nothing to You
Drama incoming! But there shouldn’t be any cringe. I hate cringe.

And here we see the effect that fewer work balloons to juggle is having on my art. I’m experimenting more with look and angle.

I forgot the stool the orb should be sitting on, but so far I’ve only referenced it in commentaries and who reads THOSE?!
Not A TON To Say
Okay, first things first, I’m really really happy with that inkwell.

Amanda here is demonstrating the problem with combining dice rolls and roleplaying. Heh.
Rrrrrrun, Brisby! RUN!
I'm told I shouldn't critique my own work. So... yay! New comic, and an animated one at that! And I found a new trick with my stacking and layers that makes it easier to make those.

I'm not actually being lazy with the orb's expression, it is just so inured to indignity and annoyance that this is small change. Yes, including the days and days sat upon a stool.
Baronet Ermine
A friend of mine has been an avid fan since I started this. Always reacts or comments, the little things that help a project keep going. So, I told him he could put a character in. Baronet Ermine is that character. More than that I'll save for later.

She's My New Favorite
That wagon, which I hope we see more of, took for-freaking-ever.

The guard captain is the first and most obvious sign of Diesel's promise to beef up the guards, although she IS the captain. It's not legions of ogres, yet. Her helmet (which, because text, you can't see yet - ONE MORE COMIC) is a little wonky, but I'm gonna say she made it herself.

I also really like Sentiment in formal disciple wear. It looks good on him.
References
So... they're referencing Star Wars, Princess Bride, and Runescape. Which... I mean, of COURSE that's what Amanda plays or played. Hell, she probably just wandered around cooking and burying bones.

More of a Bardbarian, Really
This is the point where I realized how much my art was suffering from the amount of text. I really, REALLY wanted a close-up of the handoff between Sentiment and the NPC guard. I get better about it really soon.
Dang Recommends: I disbelieve the air
ROUS stands for Rodents of Unusual Size, if you’re one of those people who hasn’t seen Princess Bride or just didn’t find it memorable. Diesel once cosplayed as Inigo Montoya, with a muppet-style Vizzini on his hand.

This page is actually the first one I got done after the schedule change.

Comment title is a reference to Another Gaming Comic again.

@NyphlyNonsense: oh cool
@That1Geek: That limitation doesn't exist in 3.5, which is what I'm running this off. They speak Common and Kenku by default.

@NyphlyNonsense: I like that the kenku actually has dialogue besides random noises. The limiting factor o the kenku's voice is really weird. I dont know why it exists.
@That1Geek: Congrats on being the first to comment. I'm glad you're enjoying it so far!

Look at this wall of text
This is so accurate
Insta-follow cuz dnd stories are great
My Apologies
Due to declining health, Questing and Queers will only be updating on Saturdays for the foreseeable future. While I love this comic and I have a lot of ideas for it, I am unable to put in the time necessary to post twice a week.

Comics will continue to be posted Saturdays, including this coming Saturday.
David, Stop That
That WAS kinda dickish on Diesel's part. Especially since ostensibly he wants the party to NOT split.

Also, as we see here, Amanda IS paying attention, she's just hyper.

David tried really hard not to optimize. Like, Sentiment is tweaked for Aid Another and Leadership, as a mob boss should be. But he really hates losing, and so rather than "cool and collected leader" Sentiment is coming off like "psycho munchkin."

I am aware there is too much text. This continues through comic forty-one, and then forty-two onward has a more reasonable amount of text. So far.

Not Even One Hit, Somehow
Imagine a butterfly where Alex is looking. Ideally with a poorly-Photoshopped D&D manual over it.

Klefan is, in fact, a pacifist. At least for now. More than that would be spoilers.
