That tail has a mind of its' own ;)
Yes, You're correct, Kronos106 :) Although the braces have magical properties, the glow effect comes partly from a chemical reaction. If deprived of magic for too long the glow will go out, but it won't go out straight away :)
Good question. Would a creature's flame resistance be nullified by an anti-magic field? I suppose it depends on the nature of that resistance :)
They may not be-But on the other hand, they are within the radius of the anti-magic zone created by the orb-So they can't be magical illusions :)
He might be able to throw her if he thinks of it, Panther (although that's a long way to throw a person, even for Goret) :)

That's true, Randomdude67-Best to look on the bright side in these situations :D
How the heck will they get out of this one?! Find out in the not too distant future! The next page returns to the heroic kobold Zeen and his efforts to free his fellow idiots/heroes for the clutches of the evil Witch Sniffer! That'll be up next Sat and then we'll be back to the two pages per week phase of the month again :) I decied to cut this scene in half as we hadn't been with the main cast for quite a while :)

Please back me on Patreon if you can. Just three bucks per month will get you uncut art from the comic (text free and steamier versions of the comic pages) and a bonus comic page every month-Plus you'll be giving me more time to work on the comic! :D

Also-I've started putting more BTB up at Tapastic which is a pretty good way of reading older pages. You can check out BTB over there by folling this link- https://tapas.io/series/ByTheBook

I've been streaming on Picarto. I should go to the doctors about that really. No! Shut it! Gotta stop with the dad jokes for long enough to tell you all that you can watch me draw on Picarto if you don't have anything better to do :) Check it out here- https://picarto.tv/SpaceGoblinProductions

A big 'Thank you!' to all my existing Patrons-you make this possible :)
Too true-Silly to go turbo now only to go into meltdown in December :) Steady does it ;)
I should have mentioned this in the main comment, but the next page will be out on Sat (we're in that phase of the month again I'm afraid). I actually have a page ready but I'll keep to the usual schedule I think and bank some breathing space as I expect December will be quite hectic :)
I did think about making Kislata's clothing be a glamoured micro bikini. 'Glamoured' means an item (usually clothing) can take on the appearance of another item. In this case she'd be wearing the bikini because it gave her really great buffs but she'd had a glamour placed on it to make it less embarrassing to wear. Ah well-I expect I can use that idea later on at some point :)
lol-He THINKS he is ;)
Sorry about that-I got the bits and pieces ready yesterday and set it on a delay which I then forgot about-So the page automatically updated before I was ready- All sorted now :)
I'm sure they'll think of something, Panther ;)
Well, fire and lightning hitting a person would usually destroy their clothes and the person. In the case of somebody with twenty times more HP and the ability to heal themselves, the clothes will be destroyed before the person is. It's a minor miracle that adventurers don't end up naked most of the time. In fact it's a lack of realism that I for one find lazy and that I find disapointing in other story tellers. Does it happen in my comic primarily because I enjoy drawing naked people and secondarily because I make my character's costumes too complicated and get fed up of drawing them clothed? No way! It's all down to my staunch dedication to gritty realism... ;)
Those are excellent ideas and would occur to anybody that-

A)-Was fully aware of Goret's great strength

or

B)Was not a total moron.

Sadly Kislata is not fully aware of Goret's great strength. And Goret? Well.... ;)
I'm running a monk in a 5th ed game of D&D and for flavour I've gone with gentleman adventurer and pugilist. I've renamed all his class abilities as a result (eg-'Flurry of blows' becomes 'A good sound thrashing'). He just gained an ability called 'Tanquility' which means enemies cannot attack him unless they pass a wisdom save. Tranquility didn't sound right for him. I decided it would more be about the enemies not daring to strike a person of such noble bearing and with such a fine moustache. The new name for the ability is a little long but I think it works. It's more a short Gilbert and Sullivan-esque verse than a traditional name-

'Despite their cruel ferocity
There shan't be an atrocity
It's plain for every brute to see
My superciliousity'

I made 'superciliousity' up-Based on the word 'spercilious' :) His other abilities are similarly titled (though the other appellations are generally more concise ;)).

Phew! Goret was able to catch Kislata in the nick of time! I mean, she'd have been okay if he hadn't, but she avoided 9D6 falling damage which is definitely a plus. Probably about 31HP better off as a result. Now all they have to do is find a way out. Without any magic. Piece of cake! I expect. Just hope nothing bad happens to them while they're down there...

lol-Good point XD He's got lots of other businesses though. Like that hotel he built on an old tribal burial ground ;) And the housing estate he also built on a burial ground. He fills a very specific niche in the business world.
The Lapan, Moroz (most of the time), Svengar (some of the time), Freya, Calicos (usually),Bork (he tries at least),Mambasa, Kislata, Domina, Daddlewater and his Valet -I could go on forever, baby! You are essentially correct though-There are a lot of very silly people in this world ;)
That's true! I think you can have sexy characters depicted as such without them being objectified. They can be sexy and you can show off their bodies without that being all there is to them. I make most of my characters sexy and I draw them in quite a revealing way a lot of the time but they also have personalities and goals and are potent and important agents within the story. I apply the same rules to both genders and hopefully in this way will not preclude anybody from reading my comic :)

Yes, I depict the women in an erotically charged way and show off their assets-but I treat the men in the same way.

I thought this was a better solution than just ripping all sexy stuff out of the comic and creating some beige mush that's designed to please everyone but in fact is of interest to nobody. That was my aim, anyway ;) I think it's worked to some extent as I know quite a few people (mostly men adimtedly) that enjoy my male characters. There are women readers however (I've met a few at cons).

I think a part of it also comes with the humour. There are lots of crazy funny male characters (at least I hope they're funny) but there are also plenty of female characters like that in the comic. The women are not always the sensible characters. I think that's important too. Both genders have the capacity to be funny and crazy and I try to let them be. That sort of thing is really down to the character rather than being decided by their gender :) Some of them are serious, some of them are silly-all of them can be either from time to time. Gender doesn't come into it. Gender matters of course, but it's one of many factors and does not (in my experience) preclude a personality type or role witnin a narrative. Or a sexy costume for that matter ;)
Yes-When thoughtful tactics and a sound plan are absent, charging forward into the teeth of danger will see you right! That's the Goret way! :D
