It sucks to be the halfling.

Haha cool melee. Missed opportunity to stick her spear up the chimera's backside (they don't like that), but I admit the biting and butting was much more fun.

Ha ha, I noticed the missed opportunity too. A successful "hole in one" strike would've been too effective. I wanted either a miss or a very feeble hit for that panel.

Looks like the hearties could use some reinforcements.

Why yes. Yes they could. ;)

Wow , Ive seen fights like this !! >_< they are screwed.. that one guy is a goner for sure ( Im sure he failed his save vs poison! )

More than anything, this kind of fight brings back some great moments watching those classic Willis O' Brien/Ray Harryhausen movie monsters attack!

This is a really solid page. I got a big smile out of this fight!

Yup. Failed save vs. poison. It's hard to see at this size but he has X's for eyes in the long panel.

Ahhh! Look out for that monster prop held by that special effects stagehand who is just off camera!

This week's monster has been brought to you at the suggestion of Agent0Gecko. I suck at drawing animals so this was a good exercise. :)

Damn! My halfling died in the first round of combat and now I have to sit through the rest of the session bringing drinks to the other players...

Ha ha. Hey, as long as your character's dead, would you mind making a beer run? Oh, and get a pack of smokes... and some potato chips.

Some times that's just life. A lion has your head in it's mouth while a snake bites your nose.

Life. What a major bummer. That's why it's good to escape to a world of fantasy and adventure now and then. But then the chance of getting your head bitten by two different animals simultaneously, thereby causing your death, does go up quite a bit. Wait, you went over this already. Never mind.

Now I wanna play Dragon's Dogma again.

I just watched the IGN video review of Dragon's Dogma. It looks like a good game. It even has the traditional Greek mythology style chimera like the one above, as opposed to the Dungeons & Dragon version. Nice!

It's great, but you can beat it pretty quickly, as there isn't much in the way of sidequests or dungeons to distract you from the main story. Still a really fun game though! I'd recommend it.

And yeah, the Chimera design is what reminded me of it. And the party of 4, though that's in a lot of things.

Pirate looks like he should have chucked the sword and used two bucklers his whole life.
Songgu Kwon 23rd Oct 2012, 6:43 AM edit delete reply
Songgu Kwon
Parry, parry, punch, parry, duck, punch, parry, double punch... yeah, that could work. The only problem is a buckler would only do 1-2 points of damage at most instead of the 2-7 (vs. L) with a broad sword. :P
pharphacide 23rd Oct 2012, 10:46 PM edit delete reply
All that extra damage hasn't saved his right eye or right leg. I'm guessing his right arm is next and he'll be Lospsided Lefty, swinging that broad sword in his teeth.
Songgu Kwon 25th Oct 2012, 3:23 AM edit delete reply
Songgu Kwon
And then he could lose hearing in his right ear. Poor lefty. yaargh... sniff.

Epic sound effects. :)

Songgu Kwon
Ah yes, the ol' expositional sound effect style. I noticed it put to funny use in an excellent webcomic called "God Hates Astronauts".

Thank goodness for HP! A bit to the head is not immediately fatal if you have a few points left.

May not have been effective, but at least the girl landed a hit :P
