Darksoul has the best tech! ...When it works :P
New page! We're into the one page per week phase again now, so the next page will be released on Saturday! I need to set it all up and automate it to release on the day as I'll be up at 'Warhammer World' doing poorly in the 40k doubles. I don't take time off very often but it's healthy to take a short breather every now and then. 1000 points of Imperial guard allied with my partner's 1000 points of Dark Angels. I really don't deserve to do all that well given the amount of practice I've had, but I'll try my best to uphold the honour of the comic and all of it's readers! Wish me luck! :D

Well spotted-It is the same. Maybe Moroz noticed that Nero stood that way and started copying him subconsciously? ;)
That's true. I don't really worry about that sort of thing-It was just a gag ;)
That's true. The comic actually started out as a feature on a forum about 3.5. I made it quite quickly as a disposable thing that was mostly just about the rules of D&D but I found myself enjoying the characters too much to stop. That was 9 years ago... <:D
Ah-Must have been some other Randomdude (there are at least 66 others ;)).
Well, Randomdude67-It's a comic about a dice based tabletop game that was popular towards the end of the 20th century and may or may not continue to be a thing. I'd like to think it will but you never know. One day VR may become so good that playing a dice based RPG is a thing of the past. So being dated is not too big of a concern :)

Do you follow the Yogscast by the way? I listen to a lot of their stuff (along with Game Grumps and Super Best Friends) while I work (since I don't have much time to actually play games myself these days) and they mentioned a Randomdude. Maybe a different one? Dunno :)

Yes-You were just about spot on, Panther :)
New page! Next page shoild be Saturday :) The vote pic will be updated as soon as possible. Tomorrow I'd imagine. Worth the wait I hope you'll agree :)

The charm is not of anyone in particular-It just happens to be a wolf's head design. It adds 2D6 ice damage to her weapon-which already does D6 ice damage-So that's an extra 3D6! The down side is that the wielder suffers D6 ice damage with each successful hit. Luckily Moroz has Res 5 vs cold, so she's okay most of the time :) 1 HP damage every 6 hits is worth it for 3D6 extra damage against her enemies :)
Phew-Made it! This page was a toughie. I've got to start designing less elaborate costumes :) Next page will be Wednesday (hopefully) :)

Maybe Domina didn't have the spell prepared? Maybe it's something else...
Could be a bit of a 'White Adder' situation for him, Panther :) WICKED CHILD! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pmaK0d03RGE
Oh boy-They have to pick teams. I was often last to be picked at school. I wasn't particularly terrible at sports but the others didn't pick me because they were scared of my cousin Dudley. Oh no-Actually that was Harry Potter. They didn't pick me because they said I'd probably go on to create lewd fantasy web comics. 'I'll show ye'-I said. And I did. Sweet fantasy booty that is! Suck it, prudish early 90s kids that somehow knew about web comics! Next page is this Sat! I wonder who'll be last to be picked? My money is on...Goret. Hmm-Shows what I know.

Thanks for voting and for the info, Sumguy :) The link seems to work okay for me. I've re-done the link anyway so hopefully that's ironed out the problem. Anybody else having an issue with that?

I expect she keeps her sword in a special magic pocket most of the time. There's actually a company that specialises in such devices (mostly sold to adventurers). 'Hammer Space Inc'. They do a roaring trade ;) It's like the helmet Damaramu has in 'Dragon Half' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVWLUiHMdVY 19:31

A great (if short) anime and a really great manga by the way. Just recently released in English :) 'Dragon Half' was definitely one of my insperations :)

There's nothing to fear but fear itself, Goret! Seriously. Low level undead are usually pretty pathetic when it comes to combat power. Of course, there's some rather nasty stuff down here, so his fear is actually pretty well placed ;)

New page! Next page is supposed to be Wednesday but it may be a bit late because I am a mere man of flesh and blood! And rum. So much rum. Too much rum, really. Not problem levels but I should still probably cut back a bit if just for the calories. Or I could work it off. Lift weights while drinking rum pints(tm). Sounds like a solid plan. Actually I should do some work instead of that. Spooky vote pick is up and will become more fully formed as the votometer fills up :)

Wow-You're so close in your 2nd try, Panther XD I tried to balance power at least a bit. As Ratta and Topo are both quite weak compared to the rest of the 'heroes' I put them with somebody strong. Power level wise Vascarl is top by quite a large margin with Goret 2nd (also by a fair chunk-although his power is diminished due to his tendency to be an idiot). After that there's a big wad of characters that are all roughly equal (give or take a level or two). Finally we have Yarost hovering just below the pack and Topo and Ratta a fair way below him :)

Of course, power isn't the only factor. I also took into account which personalities I'd like to see interacting , romance options and the skill sets of the characters involved (each group has a spell caster for example-although that's not too difficult as most of them can do magic to some extent).

She's in stride :)

Ooh-Nice team composition. It took me a while to figure out how to split them all up. Lots of scribbling things out on a scrap piece of paper. I suppose they SHOULD be protecting Goret but he's actually pretty strong, so he should be okay as long as he doesn't do anything too stupid ;) So he won't be okay then... ;P
