I was going to give her normal eyes but when I checked the flashback of her having her armour fitted I realised she had glowy eyes. Makes sense I guess-Since the Nemeans are part Celestial-And her eyes were glowy when she still had her helmet on :)
New page! We're into the one per week phase again, so next page will be Sat :) Will Rath's new found power be enough to win out or will he be crushed into rabbit pâté? It's a pretty potent debuff ability-or it would be in the hands of a competent warrior ;)

The battle seems to be on a tipping point. Kazu and Leth were doing well against Vitae, Alice was holding her ground against Mortem and the Witch Sniffer's bodyguards. Perhaps this confrontation will be the turning point-One way or the other ;)

Yup-Who knows what might happen to 'the fridge' if it took a hit...
TheJester may be on to something....
Rath vs the Nemean! Lion vs rabbit! Angel vs goblin! Hero vs idiot! I think we all know how this is going to turn out...

He is the chosen one-His pervy powers are the stuff of legend...
They are currently level 3 (other than Alice who's level 7). They probably won't level up after this fight as although it's a big one, they haven't done anything else adventurous since the fight at the tower of the Vermin queen. They will be a good chunk of the way towards Level 4 though (especially since their opponents are pretty strong-The cultists are about CR1 each, the warrior nuns are about CR7 each and the Witch Sniffer's bodyguards are about CR3 each plus the Nemean... ;)

They keep getting into tough battles! Pity Vaznev isn't here.

Yes-going by DBZ tradition, purple energy indicates that Rath is a bad guy-So maybe he's already turned to the dark side :)
That'a down to my lack of attention-The votes shot up so fast that I had to remove two bubbles in one go! :D
Don't worry-We'll get back to it :) Fights tend to take a lot of pages with little story progression. It's just the way it is :( I want to get this fight to a certain point and then go back to the mountain gnolls for a bit as what they are doing may well have a big effect on the whole world of Geopia...

I could skimp on the fights and resolve them more quickly but one of the pillars of this comic is its battles so I don't really want to just gloss over them. The group our heroes are fighting right now is also quite important to future events and to some larger events going on out in the wider world. More will become apparent when I bring this encounter to a close :)
New page! Now Alice faces off against two warrior monks and the unfettered might of the shadowy priestess Mortem! And Rath must stand alone against a Nemean legionnaire! Will he win?! My money is on 'no'-But it'll be fun to watch at least ;P Next update will be Wednesday! :D

Correct! :D
It's a very useful breastplate! XD
New page! Would have been up sooner but my computer decided to update itself to a new version so that everything would run in a faster and more efficient way! :D Once I'd removed the updates everything started functioning again and I was able to do my work ;)
Next page will be Saturday (if my computer doesn't go mental again).

The two neophite warrior nuns charge into battle! They're lower level than Mortem and Vitae and combine cleric and monk levels to create holy martial artists. I'm pretty sure there was a prestiege class in 3rd ed for that. No doubt they are working towards that (or a more modern equivalent). Did I give them names? I can't remember now. May have to look back at some previous pages.

You'll find out in a few days :)
New page! Alice avoids a deadly blow via the cunning expedient of being in the nip. Turns out being nude is actually quite a good defensive strat. Maybe the ancient Celts were on to something...

Next page will be Wednesday! So be there AND be square!

New page! Next page will be Sat as I have a lot of nonsense coming up this week. I'll make my two pagers the two central weeks for April-weeks two and three-To avoid going mental and running amok with a pair of NHS safety scissors (as is the fate for all webcomic creators that snap). So-New page next Sat and then the Wednesday afterwards. Two pages the week after that and then a one page week to round out the month :)

Here two opposing ideals clash-and soon this war of words gives way to a clash of steel! Discipline and inflexible virtue vs tolerance and freedom of expression! Angry goth nun vs naked ginger half elf! This may well be the battle of the century-Or at the very least the week...assuming there's not much on this week...

Happy Easter all!

Subtlety is a type of drink, right?
She is-But that's cool :)
Gnoll have pretty good hearing anyway and the suit enhances it (along with scent) but the range is far from infinite and lots of factors can effect it, so she does sometimes need to get closer :)
She prefers' Adventurer in the realms of experimental recreational chemistry' ;)
