Yes, sorry Guesticus-Though maybe they can use that other song as one of their attack names. :)
Although the Tanuki god doesn't always use that ability-That's his most powerful attack. Sometimes he just steals clothes. Other times his aura increases the chance of random accidental nudity occuring :) It's possible that Kazu wearing the armour has woken him up and weakened his bonds-Causing his godly aura to begin to spread across the world...
Mystery Men is one of my fave films and that song in Anastasia is one of the best bad guy songs out there :)
Where the bloody hells have you been?!!! (I shout in the mirror). Sorry for the late update. I fell behind and this page took way longer to make than I thought it would. Back to one pagers for the next two weeks so hopefully I can use that to put production back on schedule (though I have lots of bits and pieces to make for Patreon and I'll need a new vote pic soon...). Eh-I'm sure I'll manage :D

The three Ra's have appeared! The fighters are all here! Three fully restored mummies, a flesh golem and a lich vs our three intrepid adventurers-A gnoll prince, a prodigy warrior mage and a stern inquisitor of the Nemean legions. I'm not sure which side I'd bet on-But one way or the other it's sure to be a brawl to watch! :D

I ain't dead! I'm just running behind schedule. We'll be on to one page a week again after this one though (so hopefully I can get things back on track :)).
Thanks, Jakarnilson XD There is a reference to another Boney M reference in Boneyem's character design but it's not very easy to see. If you can , observe his shoes (I think you can see them very small on the last page).

That's certainly an earworm, Randomdude67. Even evil lions love that song :D https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vifVEg7NepI
He may find it tough to stomach...
Wednesday page! Blammo! The fight has hardly begun and things have already started to unravel into the depths of bathos. No matter! Perhaps these 'instant warriors' will restore a small amount of gravitas to the proceedings ;)

They sort of are. Those bolts are a part of her body and her pants are designed to fasten to them with oversized button holes :)
Oh! They are quite similar. I hadn't seen that movie tho :) These balls do more than stab you...
I don't remember that bit in DBZ. You mean energy balls? :)
Phew-Made it (just about). That room panel too so long to draw :P Next page will be out on Wednesday! :D

I was thinking that about the fuse. I wasn't planning on having the bomb go off but maybe I'll do that in an alt version of the piece after the vote pic has run its course ;)
Indeed, Randomdude67 :) No dragons just yet, Mr Panther -But I think you'll be happy with our intrepid trio's adversaries :)
They do seem to be the big ego party :) Vascarl talks about being very powerful but that isn't really boasting in his case ;)
Although I suppose there's a case to be made for stopping a war when it becomes clear just how much it's going to cost you. You thought it'd be easier than it's turned out to be. Now you have to decide whether to go all in or back out.

Going all in so that the lives that have already been spent are not wasted is a thing, but by doing so you may not win and it will definitely lead to more lives lost. A lot of wars in history have gone on longer than they needed to because the leaders of one faction or another didn't have the courage to admit defeat sooner. Sometimes ending a war in defeat is the most courageous thing to do ;)
To quote George Orwell-'The quickest way of ending a war is to lose it'.

Then again, if some factions are not satisfied or feel like they were robbed of their victory that may lead to more wars later on. It's complicated ;)
New page! I'm running a bit behind as I had a 40k doubles event on Sunday. As a result, Sats page will be out on Sunday (hopefully) and the vote pic is not quite done yet (but it will be soon :)). I've been slogging my guts out for the last three days but it hasn't been enough :( Not to worry-I'll catch up on myself. I was tempted to make this a one page week (which would have been more sensible) but I wanted to get some pages down, damn it! :D

For anyone that cares, the doubles was great fun but my team did pretty badly (we won one game out of three). All three games were very close though, which was nice. A close game that I lose is better than winning a game by miles. Game two was less fun as my big giant tank got blown up before it got to do anything, but it was still entertaining trying to win with the pathetic handfull of survivors I had left.
The big tank (a Shadowsword) is not really an optimal choice but it's a lot of fun. I even managed to run a bunch of orks over with it in one game. It's hard not to have a smile on your face when you can run orks over in a giant tank :)

They should be -That's definitely true ;) I run my games in a fair way (I hope). I make things tough for the PCs but I try to design encounters that let the players strut their stuff. A lot of DMs seem to view their role in a more adversarial way unfortunately.

They are useful (Paladins) and I like the class, but having played fighters that get taken out of action almost every combat by Will save based attacks I stopped playing them(Fighters) in 3.5 and Pathfinder. I think it might have something to do with the sort of DMs I have. I don't like being at their mercy or trusting that they will run blanced encounters and it's not much fun when your main contribution to the party is fighting (as a Fighter) but you get mind controlled or have 'Fear' cast on you at the start of every combat :P

The Fighters in 5th ed are a lot better and there are far fewer status effects that take you completely out of the action like there were in 3.5 and Pathfinder. In those editions I tended to play Clerics if I wanted a warrior type of character. Clerics with maxed out Str that concentrated on buffing and healing rather than offensive magic. I liked monks too. Less killy than some classes but also less vulnerable to magic and the like. Although my Str36 minotaur monk could do some decent damage...;) Str36+ power attack + 9 odd attacks will make a mess.
