I believe the skit is from that, I've yet to have the chance to watch the movie itself despite owning a digital copy :/. I hear it is a great movie though so perhaps we'll both get a chance to watch it one day.

Yoda's 900+-He's bound to look a bit derpy. He trained Luke wrong as a joke after all. And made him wear squeaky shoes.
Is that 'manly men' thing from 'Men in Tights'? I've never seen that film all the way through. Is it any good? :)
Arg! Curse you comments! After coming back to this page to read the comments, for some reason the talk about smarmy men has had the "We're Manly Men" skit going through my head all day except they are saying smarmy instead of manly. As my revenge for that I leave you with not only the mental image with which I have been plagued, but in addition I leave the mental image of the Star Wars collectible plush I saw today. I can only describe it as a grinning, big headed, bug eyed derp Yoda. So enjoy those mental images for a while!
Two kinds
""" What kind of idiot uses toy bricks and little plastic men as caltrops ?! """

The kind of idiot knowing he'll catch dumbs not looking where they walks XD

Those little guys are lethal! Short and sturdy with a spiked helmet? It's a brutal combination ;)

The great race
I bet that Zeen will make these three zombie fleshed like dumbs run all around as mad during two strips ^_^
Now I'm imagining the little guy riding on the back of some ogre Master Blaster style. "Who runs Market Village? WHO RUN MARKET VILLAGE!?"

Indeed! :) Always be suspicious of goblin or kobold encounters if you think your party is too high level for that stuff. There WILL be traps ;)

'Smarmy men'...Hmm-I like that. I may store that one away for later ;)

"How dangerous can kobolds be?"
-Famous last words of the adventurers that entered the dungeon designed by the DM known as Tucker.

And it seems Zeen is willing to use weapons banned for causing undue suffering.
Perhaps I have underestimated the Lizard Wizard. Mayhaps he is wiser than he let on. Or he was rooting around in his storage, looking for a place to put his leftover pie and threw out some Pego© Bricks and Smarmy Men© in the process of making some room.

What's up with the screw/bolt in the middle of the acolyte's mask? Errr... Never mind. Guess it doesn't matter anymore since she broke her mask when she fell and it's no longer there.

New page! No Zeen? Don't worry-He'll be back next page-Which will be Saturday unfortunately. Back to one page per week for the next two weeks. Then hopefully two per week again. Six pages per month is not ideal but we've had no intermissions for a while-so that's not so bad :)
If you want more pages-then please back me on Patreon. Then I can quit my terrible job and draw lewd fantasy comics full time ;)
Thanks for voting by the way. Gnoll cop is doing well for the comic :) She looks a bit like Yeshka but she's not actually supposed to be her. A relation perhaps :)


If you can afford to, please back me on Patreon. Two pages every week and a new vote pic every month. That's the dream. More backing means more time to work on the comic ;)

A big 'Thank you!' to all my existing Patrons-you make this possible :)
Just noticed, in panel four, the sub-lackeys are also eating OM-pie :D
@Guesticus: You're not the only one, so don't feel bad. Had already read through the page and was on the last panel and saw her eyes and was like WTF? Wasn't her eyes covered a moment ago and had to reread to realize what happened.

Pie story
Hey , you dumb sister

Pies on the window have only a reason to exist : be stolen and eaten XD

If you don't understand it : die starved ......
Nice that you kept her eye-holes clear after they broke the blinds (most creators would have gone straight back to covered eyes) :D
Admittedly, took me a while to figure what happened in panel three :(
Just be glad the Lizard Wizard won't be playing with anyone's gizzard while lost in the Blizzard with Eddie Izzard :P

Almost forgot to mention: the pie Zeen is eating is an 'OM' pie, as seen in panel three around his mouth :D
