It's always time to quote Princess Bride XD
Is Zeen a bit buffer these days? I think somebody's been moving his stats around. Don't do it, Zeen! Pure mage is one of the strongest classes in the long run. I guess he's got the low level magic user blues and a yearning for some combat prowess beyond spell slinging ;) Magic boosted warrior Zeen might be quite cool though... Magus or Spellblade or something along those lines.

Captain Meg is a gnome :)
There's one on the very first page (though she could be a gnome) and Sir Thomas Daddlewater's a halfling. One the the Silver Blades is also a halfling http://bythebook.smackjeeves.com/comics/1192732/pg-49/ :)
Correct :) Raven is a famed hero but not a Steam Knight. I'm sure the steam knights would help if they knew what was going on, but the nearest member of their order is Romulas Volk-currently about 100 miles away and moving further by the second ;)
I was bred and born in a briar patch! Said brer Rath. Except it was a dungeon. And he wasn't-he was taken to the dungeon later. He IS a rabbit right now but otherwise the whole reference falls appart. I have things planned out but I suddenly thought 'maybe it would be cool to have them taken to the fortress?' Nah-Not right now. That'd drag the current scenario out even longer. But maybe a possibility in the future :)
Next page should be Wednesday.

It's difficult to use but not impossible. I'm sure a resourcful party could find a way to use it ;) Maybe summon a monster that can read (a fiendish ape perhaps), instruct it to approach the enemy and read the joke to them and then have the party wizard cast 'silence' around the party with a ready action? Summoned ape and enemies all drop dead-Wizard ends silence spell and party retrieves scroll :)
He's one of the boss monsters :) If you do manage to fight your way through you get the worlds deadliest joke as a treasure item. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ienp4J3pW7U
'You see yourself out but find that you have entered another room-A limbo between realities where people that make terrible jokes are imprisoned. The author of the comic is already there. He is writing in a book and chuckling to himself at his own 'wit'. Roll for initiative!'

This is the flavour text at the start of a dungeon crawl I'm working on. 'The purgatorial halls of really stupid jokes'. :)
The Witch Sniffer is a man-He's just not in the Goret realm of manhood ;)
New page! So now they know who has the stone. I'm not sure how much good it'll do them. Unless they have some very powerful friends... I don't really rate this lot's chances vs Vaznev. The Nemean might do okay but even she would have a hard time. It'd be fun to watch though ;)

I'm looking forward to seeing these guys try to get the stone from Vaznev ;D
Although he does have 'devil bunny' form ;) http://bythebook.smackjeeves.com/comics/2287570/page19/
'Twisted Sisters'-I like it XD

Yeah-Rath loves the ladies but sexy energy disrupts his 'Incredible sulk' super edgelord form. If only he had a form that drew its energy from dirty thoughts...
Being unable to use your super form when nearly naked warrior babes are nearby is a really big weakness in this setting ;)
She's feminine-She just hides it well under that bluff, buff warrior extrerior ;)
New page! Back into the two page weeks so the next update should be on Wednesday with any luck :) New festive vote pic is up! Please vote as often as you can :) Alice drops a little crumb of info about the world. Hmm...No resurrection, huh? And the 'true gods' are all gone? I wonder what that could mean?

Yup-She's keeping her name a secret on purpose (this mission may be off the books-at least with certain factions within the legion :)).
Sean put the Bean in Jacobean tragedy ;)

Cow death! I don't think that scene is supposed to be funny but it always cracks me up. Obviously an actual cow or sheep (or Bean) being killed via cliff fall is not funny. And yet this scene is. I guess it's the slow-mo post Bean livestock that follows him down. Just makes me giggle XD
lol-Good stuff :D Lots of deaths were in vogue during the Elizabethan/Jacobean period. They even had their own genre- 'The revenge play'

Basically bad people do bad stuff and thus must be brutally punished by the hero/heroes. Then the heroes must also die, because what they did was also a crime. It's a combination of the classical Greek tragedies and good old fashioned Christian guilt/morality. A heady (and bloody) combination ;)

The modern master of character death in terms of actors must surely be Sean Bean. How can you top death by cliff cows? ;P https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zEhtsgu6bJg
