Indeed! Though that line is kind of a joke. A nod to- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqaCEPwWGtc
That's true! :) I would say 'they don't see themselves as evil' but they totally do and enjoy it-Although they're more like Saturday morning villains than real bad guys in terms of 'the universal evilness chart of evil'(tm) ;)
Oh right_yeah, I see your point, Kronos106. Yes-Her behaviour is not correct by any means (though having all characters behave well at all times tends to make for very dull stories). My point was, while that sort of thing is very bad, going too far in the opposite direction can be far worse. Going too far in either direction can be terrible of course. Gotta strike a balance :) But yes, in case anybody was confused-Do not behave like these characters. Hathoraz is far from evil but I have tried to portray her as quite an irresponsible person which I thought would be more amusing-especially as she's supposed to be their mentor :)
Well-You can take anything too far. Still, trying to convince people to be a bit less buttoned up and admit what they feel is still not as bad as murdering people for loving in the 'wrong' way (such as how homosexuals have been treated throughout history)-Which is made even worse when a lot of the people doing the persecution have their own urges which they hide from the world but indulge in in secret. Things that really are not acceptable to anyone. As long as it passes the Harkness/Venom test (Venom has the same rules and when I wrote that bit of the comic I didn't know about the Harkness test ;) ) it's all good. If not then don't do it! Also don't do it and at the same time 'punish sinners' for their 'wicked perversity'.The hypocracy makes it even the worse. That's the point I was making (without going into real world specifics-of which there are many examples ;)).
Nobody should be forced into situations that make them uncomfortable of course-But Hath doesn't intend to do that. She just wants to get Skorost and Kruger to a point where they can admit how they (obviously) feel. She won't force them into anything :)
Rath and Venom really need to get together some time. Rath could finally get his end away ;)
Everyone's a super pervert really. Some people are just more open about it than others. As a rule of thumb, the ones that are really uptight about it (and that try to supress the sexual desires of others) tend to be the biggest perverts of all. It's not people like Hathoraz and Venom and Vascarl that you need to worry about. It's the people preaching the need to 'be pure' and going around telling everyone that they are wicked for their desires... ;)

With Vascarl you are right (hence the smoking and drinking). He's less reserved than he might otherwise be-Although a lot of mountain gnoll (or gnoll in general) tend to be pretty fast and loose with regard to erotic adventuring. They see humans as being a bit uptight. They see GOBLINS as being a bit uptight so what chance to the rest of us stand? ;P
New page! Yarost uses his new techniques! I'm sure Hthoraz has a perfectly reasonable explanation for all this. I don't include Skorost because I don't think she was to blame. Mind you, armour busting is quite a handy ability-Especially if you're going up against steam knights some day...
Next page will be out on Saturday :)


I plan on posting more stuff on Twitter. There's a link below if you want to follow me there :)

Doh! I'm glad of corrections really :) I make a lot of mistakes when I write.
New page! Are you a moron for pronouncing those words incorrectly? That seems a little harsh. I often fail to say certain words in the correct manner. Which re-enforces the moron argument really, but it still seems harsh. Is correcting people wrong? I'd say it's fine in certain situations. If I make mistakes here (which I often do) I appreciate being told. If somebody makes in error while speaking it's usually best to stay silent :) To cut a long story short, that's why I was beaten up by that Girl Guide. I guess I shouldn't have called her a moron.

Yarost taps into his special power-The ability to transform! Will it be enough to ensure victory or will the Undead Poet Society prove too much for him?! Find out soon in BTB!!!

Yeah-He's not a coward but he's a bit lacking in the warrior spirit that most gnoll have in spades. That might not be such a bad thing :)


It's more like an extreme thong than being tied to anything, Guesticus. Not ideal, but resources are scarce in the dungeon. Gotta wear what you can find ;)

I probably could find more quotes but I don't know if I want to. I had them say things other than quotes before though (when they were talking about Vascarl), so I don't think it's a problem :)
New page! It was pretty much done last night but I was very tired so I decided to post it the next day so I could check over the dialogue with a fresh set of eyes and (hopefully) catch any mistakes. The quotes are from the Romantic poet Shelley in case you were wondering :) I might call it quits on the poetry quoting now and just have these ladies speak in an affected way (feels like cheating when I just slap other people's dialogue into my comic-even if I do put a bit of effort into finding a good line).

The D&D went pretty well. My gentleman adventurer (5th edition lv7 monk-A very proper Victorian style gentleman that proves his prowess by fighting various rascals bare handed) did well in the jungle ruins of an ancient city and my female bounty hunter (5th ed Lv5 rogue/Lv5 fighter that uses a hand crossbow) did well in the other game vs a LOT of giants. The encounters in that game were perhaps a bit too tough but I had a blast. I like the sort of fights where you're up against a big horde of monsters (though we did have to run away a lot in that session-which was a challenge in itself).

Next page will be out on Wednesday. Will Yarost be able to vanquish these voluptuous verbose vamps?! Find out soon in BTB!

Thanks, Kronos106-Fixed it :)
Wednesday page! I've got some D&D on Friday evening and Sat morning/afternoon so the next page might be a bit late but I'll do my best to get it out on time. Worst case scenario will be a Sunday release :)

Poor little Yarost gets some combat experience. I think this is the first time we've seen him fighting (other than in giant wolf mode). Moroz is primarily a caster and tactician (though she can fight well too) while Goret is largely a brawler that uses a bit of magic (mostly fire) to boost his power. I wonder how Yarost will fight? His main strength seems to be in a very powerful transformation ability-albeit one that he has trouble controlling. He's the Hulk of the team I suppose :)

Our antagonists are quoting Lord Byron and Shakespeare of course. I thought I'd point that out just in case :)

She meant the demo is in 30 minutes. I usually try to avoid that type of confusion but there was only so much space and you don't have to be as strict with dialogue (in my opinion) as it's more about how people actually speak vs a written article :)

I slept in until 10.30 so I'm okay to get going again now. Skipping sleep is always a false economy and I'm quite lucky that I never (very rarely) have any trouble getting to sleep (I know some people do and I can understand how terrible that would be from the few times when it's happened to me).
New page! Getting that one done was a struggle. Let me know if I made any typos (it's currently 3:08 so I'm not at my best :P). Next we'll be going back to see how Yarost is getting on with the 'Undead Poet Society'-That'll be on Wednesday :)

She was going to be called 'Death Cow' but I decided that was a bit much XD Her actual name is a bit silly mind you. 'Mort' meaning 'death' of course and 'Ubera' meaning 'large breasts' in Latin XD
Phew! New page! And new vote pic! Next page will be Sat. After that I'll be doing two double pages weeks :) The control centre of the keep of sorrows is on red alert (even if it means changing the bulb). I wonder if this will translate into any actual aid for our two spies? They're not exactly helpless but they're a bit outclassed by the other people down there (not to mention the denizens of the depths). Maybe Darksoul will send some heavy hitters to help out? When he finds out about it that is. If he finds out. If is good ;)

That's okay-Thanks for pointing it out, OriginalGriff-I'll fix it :)
Nah-He (or she) just has apotty skin :)
New page! Will our intrepid agents actually get their news through to somebody who's not a total idiot? Bao has many great qualities (being able to keep her 'Super Justice Rangers' under control, not wearing pants...um...and other stuff...) but she's not the best person to have on the other end of a phone :) http://bythebook.smackjeeves.com/comics/2416830/page92/
