Only time will tell (all good guesses though).
Yeah, all Moroz really did was point out the situation-she just did it in a particularly evil way. I wonder if she took lessons on evil exposition or if it just comes natural ;)

New page!

Moroz steals Meg's hat! Actually that event was kind of ad-libbed. The panel where Moroz leans in to talk to Meg didn't work with the hat in the way-so I had Moroz lift it from Megs' head. It only seemed natural for Moroz to put it on after that. Turns out she has a thing for hats. She's been bursting to wear that one since she saw it ;)

Please keep voting (we made no2 for a while there-well done and thanks! XD) and back me on Patreon if you can-

Thanks for reading! :D

Ah-I see-I should have added in a few other leaf shapes I guess. I often just paint grass in-this is a rare occasion of foreground vegetation being drawn into the original pen and ink drawing :)

Yes, Brad-'swift' is what I meant. Yeah-they're very handy -one of the things that made Duskblades such a cool, flexible class-not super powerful but with a lot of neat ticks that made them work very well as a class.

Guesticus -Yes, I know-I was just trolling Mortal Combat' fans ;)

Yar is chomping because there's a thing in front of him that needs a good chomp-he's in murder death kill mode right now.

The tuft is a patch of hardy grass-the sort that grows on the windswept plains of the area-the soil is quite poor and the air is very salty + the sun doesn't shine very often so this sort of plant is pretty tough-not quite a pioneer plant of course, but still not at the height of the succession process (although maybe it is as things won't get much better in this area now-without the introduction of outside effects such as the manure and magic that the Gnome settlement employs in farming-not a problem for them as they often grow crops underground-gloomy is not a problem for them ;)).

Yes-the shard in panel 4 plotted for many months before moving to thwart the hopes and dreams of many. That shard is kind of a dick.

Yup-the double is a nude version. She still hasn't gotten the hang of adding items ;)

Indeed-Meg may want to heed her warning. I guess she's not so keen to take advise from an adversary-especially one as cunning as Moroz ('what's she planning?').

Moroz has been living with Goret's mouth for the best part of 20 years. Her patience has long gone at this stage-being replaced with a grim acceptance of Goret and Yarosts' bullshit ;)

Moroz uses some cunning and a little magic to get out of a jam. ‘Quick Invisibility’ is a spell that renders the user invisible (as one might expect) but only for one round per level. One of the big advantages is that it can be cast as a ‘quick action’ -meaning the user can cast another spell (or attack) , move and cast this spell all in one round. I like quick spells a lot-I’d like to see more of them in Pathfinder (as long as they’re not too powerful).

Goret’s lucky that only the dwarf is chasing him. I guess everyone else is too busy watching the giant rage wolf that’s currently marauding about the place ;) Dwarfs are implacable, but also rather slow.

May need to start working on a Halloween pic soon as Autumn seems to have just about run it’s course. I’m open to suggestions :)

That's an idea :) Unfortunately Goret would be unlikely to do it because-
a)-He wouldn't think of that and b)-He'd want the glory of destroying the ship for himself (he's that kind of guy) so he'd rather keep working on his own solution than consider letting somebody else to the deed.

Moroz might think of using Yarost in such a capacity but she tends to be pretty cautious-there's no way to be sure that Yarost would behave as expected in such a venture-better to keep going with plan 'a' and save Yarost for a weapon of last resort. An illusion that makes the battle ship look like a juicy steak might work, but neither Moroz or Goret practice that type of magic :)

Yes, Goret is still a world leader in some areas ;)

The stickiest situation since sticky the stick insect got stuck to a sticky bun! Will Moroz escape, or is she doomed to be ripped asunder (or at least dribbled on a bit)!? Find out next time, in BTB!!!
