One word, giggity
not a common GhostBuster reference. But I’m still surprised no one’s yet mentioned it
Well…that escalated quickly.
Took the words right outta my mouth.
yes they did, Mr. burgundy…yes they did.
If he does hunt her down…he’s fair game
Technically, Kibbles IS a threat to society.
that is probably the most original name
Was hoping to see her upgrade sword in use. Now have to wait!
Same here, I expect them to all die horribly or get over it.
ill make sure they due
You bastard, how dare you to hit little Kibbles. She’s just an apprentice, “and maybe just turn your brother into a pile o ashes”, but there was a lot of pressure on her that time.
How Dare he be Angry with her for Accidently Killing his Brother!
I’m glad someone else noticed she was pretty dang nervous, I think anyone would be a tad nervous when 3 guys in a bar surround you.
No, I think his brother was complimenting Kibbles on how beautiful and she got her spells mixed up
Relax man , your brother will probably respawn in 10 to 30 days tops!
Nope, while Evyr is Modelled on RPG Tropes, this Land does Not in Fact Exist in Video Game, so Gene is Very Much Dead Unless there’s a Spell to Fix that.
Going back to the beginning, his name was GenericBlueCatWarrior27 >.>
“Gene” for short. It was originally a joke meant to poke fun at MMO’s. However.. Everyone started thinking it was a video game world… and that is not the case. We wanted to establish that life and death in Evyr is finite.
So No Resurrection Spells for Gene? Then again, I ‘spose Garret would’ve Found Someone to Perform such a Spell If there were such a Thing…
Nope.. No resurrection spells unless you’re a necromancer.. but even then.. the revived body is just an empty hollow shell of it’s former self. A “zombie” if you’d like. Plus Gene is a pile of ashes… there’s be no way to revive THAT. And as far as healing goes.. it can only heal so much.. like minor wounds, and scratches.. you can’t regrow a limb if you lose one for instance.
-looks in cast profiles again-
nope, no necromancers around here
Not a one. There’s none at all.
If it’s not game thing then why is there -150hp on top of his ashes?
It was just a joke. Earlier in the comic we hadn’t a full story panned out until around page 15 or so. Yes, there is alot of little tropes and homages to games in the comic, but if someone dies then it’s a permanent thing. The story wouldn’t be very compelling if our heroes never faced any danger. If they got killed they just respawn in a couple of seconds or whatever. That is why this was a necessary part of the story.
I was joking by the way, I pretty much figured there was no respawn. But I guess it lead to more info about the comic itself so that’s good.
by the way. Was the number -150hp random or was it in reference to the Goblins webcomic?
Like Farron’s eye, for instance
-150 joke was just a random one – making fun of how general damage is shown in RPGS ala Final Fantasy. Farron’s missing eye however isn’t a direct reference to anything in particular.It gives Farron a unique look aswell as a sort of disability as he has poor depth perception being half blind and what not. 🙂
I think you read my two comments as one. Farron’s eye was a reference to “you can’t regenerate a limb” but the -150 was random? how random!
Ah, well yes. Farron can’t regenerate his eye.
So is Kibbles going to be Incarcerated for her Role in Gene’s Unfortunate End? I mean, I can See that’s she’s Torn up Over it, but Even If she Didn’t Mean to, she’s Still Guilty of Manslaughter at the Least, & I Can’t Really Consider Garret a “Bad Guy” for Wanting to Avenge his Brother.
manslaughter doesn’t exist in the ancient world
But this Isn’t the Ancient World, it’s Fantasy, the Difference being that in the Ancient World, Women would Not be Allowed Outside the Home, Let Alone Work as Adventurers, though I am Aware of Exceptions to this Rule.
Yes it does.
Only a coward strikes a woman!!
Can you Really Blame him for being a Bit Emotional about the Death of his Brother?
That still doesn’t make it right.
So striking sesame is for cowards?
Striking Kibbles who could burn you alive at a moments notice is being cowardly?
I’d love to see someone hit a guy who could do half the stuff that Sesame or Kibbles can do. Wait they wouldn’t because of crazy strong they both are. Yet it’s automatically wrong because of your preconceived idea that they are weaker than men. The only male we have seen in this world so far that is strong is Farron. Sure Mason is a blacksmith but we haven’t seen if he can fight let alone hit a fly.
He watched his brother get burnt alive infront of him but Kibbles. Someone who didnt even care from his persppective. This isn’t a world where women are subjugated, least from what we have seen. He has every right to want to get the person who killed his twin. Unless your saying its different if Kibbles was a guy in which case thats a fairly moronic form of equality.
the difference is sesame can actively defend herself and Kibbles did it by accident
Were this in our world kibbles would be in jail straight up for what she did.
Though trying to say Kibbles is defenceless is rather silly, she is the only character we have seen apart from faron and dante to actually kill something.
You’re taking it way overboard, its a WEBCOMIC, don’t relate it to the real world. She did it by accident, she had no intention of killing anyone or even casting said spell when it happened.
Yeah, I’m Sure you’d be Perfectly Fine If someone Killed a Member of Your Family by Accident.
Actually, I would be, it was an accident and was completely unintentional, there is no logical reason to be upset over something they had no control over like, a car tire blowing out and the car rolling onto the sidewalk we were on.
Alright, have you Ever Been in Garret’s Situation & Did you Respond to it with Method that you Say you Subscribe to?
Well if you count someone you knew in High School dying in a horrible car crash then yes. I didn’t hate the guy responsible I just considered him an idiot.
Again, quit trying to apply REAL LOGIC to a WEB COMIC, its for entertainment so doing so defeats the purpose.
But it Looks Like the Story’s about to Take a Turn for the Dramatic, & Drama Should have an Element of Reality to it.
Eh, I just wonder how this will go, I mean sure those three were taken away by a guard, but I’m thinking they’ll stalk them when they leave town.
Now you’re Trying to Change the Subject.
Well that little argument ended like, 5 hours ago so yeah, kind of just dropped it where it was and we all stopped trying to gut each other over our opinions. So yeah in all seriousness how do you think things will go with those 3?
They’re Going to Continue to Seek Revenge on Kimbles, but Ultimately Prove to be Ineffectual, Most Likely Thanks to Seasame, Meanwhile, Kimbles is Probably Going to Lose All of her Ditziness & Become rather Gloomy indeed.
and authorities would question the bartender acquit Kibbles of murder and arrest Garret for first degree assault
Aren’t you Forgetting that Manslaughter is Still a Crime? Even If Kibbles Didn’t Mean to Cast the Spell that Incinerated Gene, she’s Still Responsible for Gene’s Demise. If there are Magic Users in this World Like Kibbles, I’d Have to Hope there’s an Arcane Bar Association who could Disbar Potentially Dangerous Practitioners, Like Kibbles, from Using Offensive Magic at the Least.
they’d acquit her of manslaughter too
Well Shouldn’t she at Least be Banned from Using Magic due to the Threat she Presents to herself & the Community?!
she could be, that’s for the court to decide
Kibbles isn’t defenseless, she’s accidently dangerous and not intentionally dangerous
Even If she’s “Accidently” Dangerous, she’s Still Dangerous! How Many More People would she Have to “Accidentally” Kill Before you’d Think she’d Have to be Detained?
Uh, he didn’t see his brother get burned to death at all, he wasn’t there, and the other two told him later about it hence why they were pointing her out to him as he didn’t know what she looked like.
I didn’t say they were weaker. I’m just saying that despite the guy being upset it’s improper to hit a lady no matter what the reason.
really? didn’t sound that way.
You’re Suggesting that Kibbles should be Treated in a Different Fashion from Males Because she is Female, which is Unequal & therefore Unjust.
Oh NOW I see your point!
Ah! Someone else who feels the same! Though lets be honest if there was a woman trying to stab/shoot you, you’d hit them, but this situation hardly called for it.
Can this stop now? This is COMICS not REAL WORLD… If somebody want talk real world stuff go away, we rest want talk about comics, not the horrible stuff what will happen comics characters from what happens if they are in real world doing same that in comics.
Whether you Like it or Not, Most Fiction is Based on Reality to a Degree.
hey, fuckwit, you’re being an asshole, shut up and enjoy the comic, please exit through the gift shop, try our tri-force-shaped ice-cream bars
Says the One who Swears & Accuses me of Infringing on their Enjoyment of the Comic for Expressing an Opinion. And Where did you Get that Avatar? I Like it.
No, but I can blame him for hitting Kibbles who had no intention of casting that spell in the first place. Considering he heard the story from those two it’s probably a biased one.
and the fact that Kibbles has already apologized for the accident seems to go right over some peoples head
Would You Accept an Apology for the Death of a Family Member?
no actually I would jot forgive her but you can persive that her apology is completely real and that she didnt want to do it, why? well she is crying and she is disturbed for the fact that she killed some one thats not enough for me to forgive some one but at least its enought to spften my anger enought to not hit her
Your talking about a biased view point yet the majority seem to be biased towards letting kibbles walk around burning bars down and incinerating people. Each of us knows she did it. Yet it’s fine just to say sorry. Oh I’m sorry I just killed your brothers, sisters,mother and father. I’m sorry I didn’t mean to burn down that orphanage and all the children inside there can I go now. I can oh great now I can go be reckless and burn down more stuff.
Just because Kibbles is completely ditzy doesn’t make it any less that what she did. Quickly everyone go out and kill people then say sorry it was an accident. Wait that doesn’t work, ever. Not unless your the ones in charge.
Though hey its Kibbles, she’s cute and has big breasts so must everything is perfectly fine for her to do to people even killing them and burning down everything.
You clearly suffer some form of mental incapability to realize this is a WEB COMIC and not REAL LIFE.
You also keep insisting that she did it on purpose, when it was a complete mistake, she also did NOT burn down the bar, it just suffered some scorched boards. I also love how you threw burning an orphanage down in there, because that obviously relates to a single death that would, by real standards as you keep b*tching, be manslaughter, not homicide. Which is a lesser charge as there was no per-meditation nor intent to kill.
It is also hardly a biased viewpoint, it is a REASONABLE viewpoint, we, as the readers, know it was a mistake and she had no ill intent, /he/ as a character who was not there, probably was fed an incorrect story similar to the trash you keep spewing.
Stop ruining the fun of a web-comic and quit comparing it to reality, learn the difference.
Congratulations on now resorting to insults. Your just proving that your biased yourself.
Are we meant to expect that a world just allows people to go around killing others as an accident? It’s a webcomic but one with an actual story and what appears an actual world with its own background developing.
The fact is she killed him and you say its all perfectly fine to go around killing and say sorry after each time? You choose to say I have a mental problem yet by actually not going yeah its fine she killed a random innocent person all because its an accident, I’m the crazy one. Really you need to rethink your logic somewhere.
Glad you finally realized its a webcomic with its own world! That took quite the effort on your part, also NOBODY said it was okay to go around killing people, only YOU said that, not me, nor anyone else, just you, and I quote –
“Oh I’m sorry I just killed your brothers, sisters,mother and father. I’m
sorry I didn’t mean to burn down that orphanage and all the children
inside there can I go now. I can oh great now I can go be reckless and
burn down more stuff.”
– That was all your logic, not ours. No one said it was A-Okay just because she said sorry, we just know it wasn’t intentional which is why we don’t care, there’s a big difference between an intentional killing like you’re making it out to be, and an accidental one by a panicked girl surrounded by 3 guys in a bar like this was, It was an unfortunate accident and nothing else.
Your saying its completely wrong for the guy to hit kibbles for killing his family member. That he’s wrong for wanting revenge.
However it truly appears you can’t either read sarcasm or make links between things based upon your comments.
He has every right to be angry, he has every right to want revenge in any world. Yet this is one thing you keep defending that just because kibbles apologises and didn’t mean to he should be all happy and accept it from his brothers killer.
Once more go and think over things yourself before chucking insults at people or defending such a silly original stance now that your wrong.
Once again I’ll say, nobody said it was okay just because she apologized, you seem to have ignored that bit of my last comment. It’s also quite possible I missed sarcasm, I was up all night, good times.
Also I never said its wrong for him to be angry or want revenge, I am saying he was wrong to hit her, mainly because she was unaware anyone actually died. Also, who are you to claim that someone’s opinion on a matter is “wrong”? You feel it was right to strike an unarmed/unaware woman, I feel it was wrong, ’nuff said.
Why the fuck does whether they’re a man or a woman come into it? Kibbles is NOT unarmed (She’s more than capable of incinerating any threat to her, as she demonstrated on this guy’s twin – even if it was an accident).
Frankly the “GTFO, it’s just a webcomic” argument falls flat, because we’re expected to be invested in the world and characters. You can’t have that investment if you treat it as ‘just a webcomic’. And I’m NOT a fan of Protagonist-Centered Morality.
As for my own stance on what happened – one of my cousins was killed in a hunting accident (Mistaken for a groundhog due to her outfit and terrain she was in). However, the guy who killed her was a friend of the family and her employer. Personally – I believe that she should have to make amends with the surviving family.
I thought she needed her staff at least to cast but she might not so good point. I’m also not saying her gender matters, that was just the situation, if it was a man I’d still think it was wrong to strike them for something they were unaware of. As for making amends, I agree, but it will probably be impossible for a while to even attempt it, I’m expecting them to follow the MC-Group for a while only to end up getting into trouble and being saved by said MC-Group, what do you think will happen?
Your right don’t liston to him lol it’s a web comic based on Rpg so how can there not be deaths, I play RPGs and everyone goes about killing people and some by accident 😉
U are a dinlo
and this why authors disable comment sections
Yeah.. we don’t want to have to do this. If you can’t have a civil discussion, please refrain from commenting and not allow this to devolve into a insult-fest.
im trying to, but old habits die hard
no, a coward is afraid to. a superjerk punches innocent ladies.
Youch. Sure, Kibbles didn’t mean it, but she did kill his brother. Accident or not, it’s still death… Still, ouch.
To panel 3 I say this:……JJJJJJEEEEEEEEEESUS!!!!!
Good LORD this turned darker then I have expected. O_O
Looking back at the beginning I now remember that the third guy was indeed incinerated. But if that happened yesterday then what are these guys doing enjoying their time? Okay they have healing spells for those burns, but shouldn’t they be at least mourning their lost friend or something? And don’t give me the “everyone takes it differently” line cuz that doesn’t apply if it only happened half a day ago. 😛
They’re probably drunk now. And yes, people DO take it ‘differently’ even after less than a day – My cousin was killed in a hunting accident a few months ago (Has it been that long already? It feels like it was just yesterday…), and I was in the bar with my friends as normal throughout the week – I just had something else to talk about, but there wasn’t really a lot to say, and it wasn’t worth dwelling on anyway.
Can I just say I really like that there is a horse anthro here. Nobody ever attempts them. Good job on that, guys. Also, this turned dark indeed. Yes, a guy died, and that’s bad. We all know that Kibbles is going to takes a serious blow from this and beat herself up about it a LOT. It obviously didn’t turn out well for either Kibbles or Garret.
The InnKeep and Bouncer are both horses actually! :3
Oh, I was wondering about him! He seemed like a horse but I think the hair colour swayed me towards another animal. I really love how you draw them, though. No exaggerated features that differ from the other characters. :3
Check out Bara
I will rip his dick off.
I say we round up a posse and hang him by it
Dude Lost his Brother! Am I the Only One Showing Sympathy for this Poor Fellow’s Loss?
I DO have sympathy for his loss, his knowledge of what happened is clearly biased and striking Kibbles is just plain crossing the line
read my reply to jagmaster and see how you’re wrong.
that’s YOUR opinion
now thats a bit extreme. his brother got killed, and he doesn’t think it was an accident. he has a good reason to punch kibbles, if you’re seeing through his eyes.
well you see…………………………………………………………………. yeah cant argue with that. however,…… can i at least circumsize him?
Kibbles should change her profession to magician, cause she just made a guard appear
Actually, the hero I normally design is a Rogue class who has healing abilities. He is a mixture of Kibbles and Sesame in the sense that if he were to find out he did something like Kibbles did, he’d let them beat him up to a pulp, using his healing power to keep him from dying. And if he found out Kibbles did it, he’d offer himself in her stead.
So I can really relate to this comic. Well done.
I gotta admit, up to now I wasn’t sure what to think about your comic… But this… This part was brilliant!
Congrats Skidd! You got me hooked!
I went back to the third page to see if the guy actually died…And you can see him becoming a pile of ash…Man that was sad.
HE SAID IT! HE SAID IT!
Kibbles you’re a bitch! We love you! <3
I had to go to page 3 to check what happened to his brother. Now let’s hope he had phoenix genes or something similar
reminds me of tom and jerry somehow…
Why doesn’t it surprise me that the male herbivores are multiples in size to the carnivores, omnivores, and female herbivores?
Think about it. Mason is a gentle giant, but he is LARGE and an elk. This guard is of equine bent and he is LARGE. The madam was a rabbit and she was not LARGE, but she is female, while this guard and Mason are both male.
It is true we have a very small selection here, mostly chosen for their role (Mason=blacksmith and the guard=well, a guard), but we haven’t seen many herbivores and quite a few carnivores and omnivores.
The Innkeep is also a horse, the guard is modeled after the breed Clydesdale. However certain characters should be relatively smaller considering their species. Claire, a fennec fox is easily smaller IRL then your typical dog or even cat (but she towers over Sesame and Kibbles) the same can be said for Farron who is a rat but is quite a tall man himself — being second only to Mason in height. (Claire is 6’0″, Farron 6’4″ and Mason is 6’9″ but 7’0″ if you count his antlers)
if the bodyguard had a beard and gold chain he could be Mr.T
he hit Kibbles… *Grabs my sword* anyone comin’ with me?
I am, and to quote Joe Swanson “Let’s waste this dick.”
I am Afraid can Not Allow you to Slay a Man who is Clearly Suffering for the Loss of his Brother, so I Must Obstruct your Short-Sighted Quest for Vengeance. As they Say, you will Have to Go Through Me If you Wish to Harm Garret.
2 against 1? hmmm…..this outta be interesting
Thankfully, I Have Four Arms.
like I said, this outta be interesting
*stabs you then goes on my merry way to kill the mofo that hit kibbles*
Technically, I’m Unstab-able as I do Not Exist in Three Dimensions, but it Doesn’t even Matter Does it? You’re just Going to Defend Ms. Kibbles because she’s Adorable, & Not Consider what Poor Garret’s going Through, because Only the Protagonist Matter & Damn Everyone else…
Probably because he hit her for something she didn’t even mean to do, quit defending this fucking jackass, yes, his anger his understandable, but she did not deserve that punch, and this is coming from a kid with fucking aspergers, please, do us all a favor and keep your self-righteousness to your god-damn self
I’m Not being Self-Righteous, I’m being Fair, also Consider that you Think it’s Okay for Kibbles to Get Away with Murder because it was an Accident, but you Don’t seem to Realize that Garret Doesn’t Know it was an Accident, for All Garret Knows, Kibbles is a Coldblooded Killer.
Bye bye Garrett Force!– I mean, Guild Bros!
Don’t come back every other two towns visited! 😀
Ahhh, poor girl, its always sad the first time you realize you killed someone, especially when its by accident.
Sooooo….no phoenix downs in this world than?
NVM: Read further down, thanks for clarifying Skid….I need to read the comments more often
Now he’s going to have to leave them unsupervised again to go get more paint.
Of course he will ask Tina’s mom to tie up Tina and Yuki to make sure they don’t make more of a mess.
Still think these painting pages need some color
WE NEED MORE DAKKA!!!
Technically speaking, that big button is a combination of dark gray and black. It is in no color of the word red. Not even in the slightest sense. XD
No but in all due seriousness, I must say I got a kick over this entire page mostly due in part to the following three items:
1. I don’t know if it was intentional or not, but if you look at Yuki’s outfit and the missile opening in the robot, the chest clothing style kind of matches.
2. The fact Tina’s mom knows it’s a bad idea to leave those two alone is heighten with that water drop mark right below her right ear. And Ron’s naivety in all this only strengthens my opinion of what’s going to happen to him next. He’s going to get painted on.
3. The paint tornado at the end. Although, I’m trying to figure out if Tina is trying to help Yuki make a mess at this point or if she’s trying to hit her with all that paint.
They’re making a mess of things. Don’t leave cats alone with paint, bad things will happen.
Nice “Star Wars: A New Hope” reference in the first panel.
