Quit breaking the fourth wall, wombat!

Wombat is sorry.

To be fair, both the wombat AND the elf are equally at fault here (and that's probably the first time THAT sentence has ever been used in human history.)

MAJOR props on the faces, too. I can instantly tell that that's our elf in the last panel, based SOLELY on the face. No ears, no hair, nothing. That is clearly HER face, and no one else's. Wow.

Thanks! Actually, some of the faces came out a little long, I think. I always tell people to be sure to loosely draw the whole structure even if only a part of it is visible in the panel. I am guilty of not taking my own advise.

And yes, the elf actually breaks the 4th wall even more by saying "this comic" and so forth.

In human history yes, but in elvish history, it's depressingly common. :c

Somehow, I don't think Hrodger is cut out for meting out wrathful justice. Maybe he should consider moving into administration, while he still has the chance.

I sense a messy divorce in the future, with lingering anger over the property settlement and one ex shooting at the other.

We have a domestic disturbance call involving a crossbow. Better put on your breastplate.

Why you no give ah da sword to Luigi, eh?

Is running around allowed in dueling? Because it looks like they're wearing totally different weights of armour. I know it's just a personal preference, but I'd rather face that big guy after he's winded himself.

funny you should ask this, because i have been listening to book 1 (on tape...errr...itunes) for Game of Thrones and today's session happened to cover just such an instance in which a lightly armored person WHOMPS a heavily armored person in one on one combat...

I think running circles around your opponent is perfectly fine, especially if you do it in a way that is entertaining to the onlookers. If you do it in a dull and cowardly style, no one in the crowd would be blamed should they accidently tripped or pushed you.

light armor+high dex+dagger=plate+two handed sword. I prefer fireballs+lightning bolts though...

My personal favorite is: freeze the sucka with Cone of Frost, casually walk around them and backstab or slit throat for x4 damage.

Sword-slut Kneeflayer gets in everybody's scabbard, eventually.
Songgu Kwon 30th Mar 2013, 9:55 PM edit delete reply
Songgu Kwon
Yup, that Kneeflayer gets around. One could write a long biography about his life and adventures.

Not to mention the lives and adventures of the smith's other famous creations, Kneebiter and Anklebiter.

You're a fucking genius

Nope. Not actually a genius but I think I share some of the bad habits of some geniuses. I think.
