Wow-I forgot I made these XD Well done, Mr Panther! :D
A regular mountain gnoll as a PC for Pathfinder might be +4 Str, +2 Con, 3 natural armour and dark vision 60ft. I was thinking about making them take a level of monsterous humanoid but the bonuses aren't really good enough to cost a whole character level. You could take 'Royal mountain gnoll' too which would have superior stats and lycanthropic abilities but would cost levels.
Ah yes-That's for a specific mountain gnoll enemy. Not stats for a PC (which is what JL was more interested in a believe :)
I don't think I've ever done stats for mountain gnoll. I'll try to remember to do that the next time I need filler. Or maybe as a vote incentive :)
New page! And end scene. Next I think it's time to go underground and see how the mountain gnolls have been getting on at spook central :) I need to start thinking about a vote pic for next month. We got to #2 for a little while last week which almost never happens-So thanks a lot and well done :D
I may do another 'sexy beam cannon' pic next month. Goret maybe? Next page will be Sat and then hopefully a couple of two page weeks after that :)

A big 'Thank you!' to all my existing Patrons-you make this possible :)
A Tanuki fueled warlock would be...interesting... :)
Well, he's at pretty low power at the moment. Maybe they'll get bigger as he gets his strength back :)
Yes-That's it. There's no hidden meaning in it. I used Kazu because I already had the design and she was the most prominent female character at the time :)
I don't know what you mean, Panther. It's just a hot-dog. A foot long pillar of glistening meat stuffed between two buns and dripping with sauce. How could anyone interpret that as anything rude or suggestive? ;D
Wow-Number 2 in the Top Web Comic charts right now. That doesn't happen very often. Thanks for all your votes! :D
I try to listen to my readers. Besides, I don't know if a word balloon would have done it that time. Balls boobs and butts are okay. That might have been a bit much XD
I don't plan on using the faries very much. Somebody said they missed them so I thought I'd give them an outing :)

The censor bar was required, Specter ;) I expect I'll put the uncut version on FA at some point.
Kazu avoids temptation and outwits the wily (and horny) god of theives! Will this prove a match made in heaven or the road to damnation? They do say the road to hell is paved with stolen underwear. Or do they? I don't know any more. It's very late where I am :P We're into the one page per week phase of the month, so the next page will be out on Saturday! If you want more pages (and more bonus content) then please back me on Patreon. More backing means more time to work on the comic.

If you already back me then thanks a lot! I'd probably have been forced to give up by now if not for you guys :) Or at the very least I wouldn't have been able to keep producing at the rate I have been. You have my thanks! :D

Also-Keep voting as there may be a special hidden version of the vote pic still to unlock ;)

It's complicated. I think it's okay to try to win another person over via charm and proving to them that you can be trusted and are worth their time BUT it's very important that nobody is ever pressured into something that they don't want to do.
Midweek page! Boom! Next page will be Sat. Tanuki tries to tempt the great Kazuzu. Will he succeed?! How else could they bond? Maybe a game of Scrabble. Or Monopoly? Nah-That game leads to the opposite of bonding.

I really liked 'Avatar' as well. It's become fashionable to bash that film ('What were we all thinking back then? Am I right?!' etc) but I think it's a great film. Maybe I should have made her blue? That might have just been more confusing XD Still, she looks quite good with that hair style :)
Late page! Blam! Will the great Kazuzu be tempted by promises of power, purpous and preposterous pants?! Probably. Next page should be out on Wednesday! I lowered the threshold to launch the sexy beam cannon on Vascarl too as the art is ready and I want to unleash it! Vote with all your might! :D

No-I don't think so. I can't really remember why I called him Rath. A lot of early BTB was very slap-dash as the comic was not originally made to be a long term thing. It started out as a comic about the D&D 3.5 rules set for a forum on that topic. I put very little time into designing the characters and the setting (hence the very generic fantasy setting-I would have made something a bit more out there if I'd spent longer on the world). A dozen or so pages in and I realised I liked the characters and wanted to see more of their exploits. From that the world grew into something more unique (an age of enlightenment era fantasy setting which will become more fleshed out as time goes by) and the characters developed.

Other projects I've done took whole sketchbooks of notes and designs before I drew a single page. BTB got two pages of scribbled character designs and notes and then went straight into production. Kazu, Rath and Zeen (or Zanza as I called him at first and maybe once by accident in the comic pages) have those names because they sounded right at the time. I think. If there was more meaning to them then I've forgotten what it was :)
Yeah-That thought occured to me as well. I'm sure it's a bit of that :)
Phew-That's a relief :D Thanks for letting me know :)
