Hey! Yeshka has very high standards I'll have you know! They have to be alive, they have to be of age...erm...there's probably other stuff...(what's that , Yeshka?)-Oh, erm-That's pretty much it. Plus she said the alive thing is not a hard rule (as some undead are, in her words 'hawt as long as they don't ruin it with all that angsty White Wolf bullshit'). ;P

New page! They have arrived at the catacombs to start their rescue mission at last. 'The best of what's left' as they say in 'Hot Shots 2' ;)

Although playing a Paladin like Judge Dredd can be a lot of fun XD

That's 'battle twerking' , Pibbles-It's an obscure yet highly effective form of unarmed combat that uses the sonic resonance created by the ass bouncing skills of a practitioner to tear foes appart! It's even more powerful if you have a bard on hand to sing the lively battle hyme 'Baby Got Back'.

New page! Our heroes travel ever deeper into the darkness and hear a bit about what they're going to be up against. Sexy (yet highly dangerous) bat ladies I guess? Welp-Not an enormous suprise I suppose ;) I wonder what other horrors the darkness may contain?...

That's a good one XD
I have read it and it was worth taking a look :) It does remind me of a couple of things I've done in the past. One was suggesting we all dress up as different classes to confuse the enemy. The wizard wears fake armour, the fighter wears robes and a pointy hat over his or her normal clothing etc... This was largely a gambit to confuse the enemy of course. None of my fellow players ever went for it though.

The other one was a slightly dodgy halfling wizard I ran that sold 'magic potions'. Actually just random stuff mixed with water. He met the rest of the party when the barbarian of the group bought a 'potion of battle prowess' from him. Not wanting to be brutally beaten, my wizard made sure that he cast a lot of spells that would help the barbarian out when he eventually drank the potion. So impressed was he that the barbarian demanded that my wizard make more potions for him and the rest of the group. Don't tell lies, kids. It never works out well-especially when Str20 rage prone warriors are involved.
Yes, Gee-pee is GP (or gold piece) :) Yup-Those three weeks went by WAY too fast :P I'll have to check that barbarian wizard thing out, JL :)
Yes-Sexy dungarees are in, 13Scorpions :)

Vascarl will try it on with almost anybody, Panther. It's been a long time since he had the equipment to enjoy that particular part of existence ;)
New page! For some reason I hear Vascarl speaking with the voice of Sterling Archer now :) I was away for the last two days. I went to Oxford on a rare holiday. Lots of interesting stuff to see and lots of good food-Though my feet are very sore. I need to get some more comfortable shoes next time I go on a holiday that involvbes walking 10+ miles per day ;) Ah well-Back to the comic. The next page is well underway so expect to see that on Wednesday :)

It's hare... ;)
It is not a rabbit dumpling (she's not that cruel ;)).
Last bit of filler-The regular pages begin again this Saturday :) Although this filler has taken some time away from making full pages I think it's been a success overall. It's good to get back to characters that I haven't had the chance to look in on in a while :)

Yes-It seems like whoever runs 'Smack Jeeves' has messed about with this page and stopped it from being viewable at full size :( Try this page- http://www.btbcomic.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/BTBPg398-399Word.jpg
See, Vaznev-He's not lonely. Because he said so ;)

Yeah-Vascarl is one of the stronger characters in the comic so far but was at a massive disadvantage vs the Lapan blade (which cuts through non-living material with ease). The Lapan IS very strong anyway but so is Vaznev. Vaznev is a more ruthless fighter as well. She tends to go for the kill quickly once battle is joined. I'm not certain. As things stand I think I'd give it the the bunny, but Vaznev has reserves that she has not tapped into so far that she might use if she really had to. She probably wouldn't though. She'd probably die first. She's one of those types of people :)
That rabbit's dynamite! Who would win? Tough to say-Vaznev went toe to toe with a god (although she lost that fight) while the bunny took down Vascarl (although he did have the perfect weapon to do it with). Vaznev took out a patrole of inquisition troopers in just a couple of rounds but the Lapan defeated an elite bee guard in one attack. The Lapan could destroy her armour but Vaznev is not overly reliant on armour and her weapon would be immune (plus she can fight unarmed anyway). Hmm... They're both pretty damned tough.

It's basically the same-The next one will be different :)

Yeah-Cliffhangers can be annoying but they are fun to make and a good way of capping a scene off (rather than it just cutting away all of a sudden). I just wish I could do a star-wipe. The star wipe is the king of all transitions and should be used in all media. Even in serious documentaries. Freezing the characters and then going into a pixel wipe is also pretty great-Especially if they hear something, turn to the camera and look horrified. Then freeze and pixel wipe! Every scene should end like that XD
Only a slight change here but the next part will have a little more going on :) I made this and two Patreon pinups plus I've written a big chunk of script, storyboarded the next comic page and started drawing that page-So progress is being made :) I also went back and read through the last gnoll scene to double check what had happened so far. I should really do this more often-Although making a web comic takes up so much time that I tend not to have time to do much reading-even of my own work ;D
