Zeen is immune as he is constantly in that state anyway ;)
Nobody expects the Magic Mussel!His chief weapon is weird! Weird and a sexy sea-horse lady! His two weapons are-Weird, a sexy sea-horse lady and ragtimes tunes! His THREE weapons are-
(and so on :)).

Suprise is an important factor with this spell. Although it seems pretty useless and is more of a party piece, it can be quite useful for distracting or confusing enemies.
What can I say? The scrolls you get in a box of Dungeon Crunch could be almost anything ;) In this case it was a vaudeville mussel man and his acompanying pianist (who happens to be a sexy sea-horse lady).

I may write rules for that spell. A lv1 conjuration spell. Duration-1 round per level. All creatures within a 10ft radius must pass a will save or be unable to act as they remain fascinated by the performance. Range 10ft (so the caster must also pass the save-the flaw in the spell which might otherwise be a bit too good). Victims get another save each time it is their turn to act and any new creatures entering the area of effect must also save.
Whew-Made it! Wasn't sure if I would as I fell behind a bit during the week. Went to see 'The Incredibles 2' last night. Very good! Go see it if you can :)
Zeen has finally deployed one of the earth shatteringly powerful Dungeon Crunch scrolls! Those cultists are for it now! ;)

Trying to supress her impure thoughts XD
Oh yes-All perfectly legible. I just like your art and would like to see a slightly larger version. You should post it at the size you want to of course. It's your comic after all :) Looking forward to seeing more of it :D
Wednesday page, baby! Mostly Zeen based beef but such things have been requested many times and it seemed like a good opportunity to at least partially redress the balance of wall to wall female nudity that makes up the majority of this comic ;) Those cult ladies are saucier than I'd initially expected... For once it's Zeen that's trying to get things back on track ;) He has a partner though? He never mentioned that before. His jewelery was designed with that in mind though-It's kind of the kobold version of an engagement ring :)

Phew-Made it! That was a toughie. Next page should be on Wednesday with any luck. I might even manage another vote pic...See you then :)

Great work! My only complaint would be that the art is quite small. If you could boost the size by about 50-100% that'd be cool :) Not that you have to or anything (just my opinion of course). Keep up the great work! :D
Very sensible! :D
I see a lot of potentual here :)
The scroll, I assume ;)
A lot of people have been very positive about Zeen's bits playing a larger role in proceedings and I have listened to their feedback and acted accordingly :)
New page! I had hoped to make the next page in time for Wednesday but I don't think I'll be able to now. I went outside and socialised a bit. That's where I went wrong. Never again! Not to worry-I'll still get 6 pages done in August-I'll just have to use weeks 2 and 3 for the double page weeks :)

Ah yes-The magus. A very powerful class (so many actions!). That might work. It'd annoy Rath if Zeen took a powerful class like that ;)
Thanks for the advice, JL :) I haven't played 3.5 for ages and never really played a warrior mage when I did, so I was struggling to remember which classes there were :)
Yes, Panther-They did hire the villagers to do this but they didn't have time to eat all of it before the cultists arrived :)

Zeen is indeed looking buff these days. He may have moved some of his stats around. I'm actually thinking about multi-classing him towards a fighter mage prestiege class of some sort-so next time he levels up he might take a level of fighter or something other than wizard.
Zeen's just not as well endowed I suppose :) I tend not to make such details quite as explicit in the comic :)

4th panel Zeen is thinking Zeen. He needs a smoking jacket and a pipe really ;)
New page! Next page will be on Saturday. After that HOPEFULLY a couple of two page weeks :) That weekend is pretty busy as I'm playing some 40k and D&D plus I have a bunch of overtime at my day job so that might push the Wednesday page back-Though I will do my best :)

Practicing for a doubles tournament at Warhammer world. I may not get tickets to go but I need to prepare in case I do. My half of the army is 1000 points of Imperial Guard (or Astra Millitarum). IG are my favourite army but most of the models I have are proxies and kit bashes. One army using a lot of WW1 themed models and the newer one using a lot of Napoleonic miniatures. As this one is at Warhammer world I have to use the official GW models. I like their stuff a lot but the IG models are not their best work.
I've already got a bunch of Catachans that I've had for ages (23 years?). I've stripped them, added some of the plastic figures to bring up the numbers and have green stuffed berets onto them (because berets are cool). They should look okay once they're done. I'm going for a Commando/Parashute Regiment vibe with the berets :)

The D&D should be fun too. 5th ed rules. I'm going to be running a monk. The theme behind him will be 'gentleman adventurer'. A fist fighting explorer with impeccable manners and an excellent taste in sharp suits.

That one was not as obvious as more of her costume was still intact :)
