A monster doesn't belong to the Players Handbook, thus no record is found in the RMV and suspicion is abound!

Friday update on Saturday?! I'm bad. I thought I could squeeze the update out yesterday and have my friend proof-read it (cause he was hanging out over my place) but I didn't finish til real late. Welp, I guess if I'm late once this week I might as well go all the way! *dives headfirst into lateness*

I really like the last panel. It had potential for cameos but then I thought, "Who would want to harm little Skirmish"? Before some of you start raising your hands, it turned into a silhouette shadowy thing which wouldn't do a cameo justice. I also like the lighting on Sir Vice's helm in panel 2. And his face.

But the monster manual has a section on using monsters as PCs! I SAW IT!!! D:

I don't recall seeing kobolds in there though. Only the cool kids like orcs and goblins. And they all picked on poor little kobold at monster school, but who's flipping burgers now?? HUH???

Kobolds are actually playable in Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd edition.
I know this because I HAVE 2nd edition, and I HAVE a kobold specifically for that edition...
...I refuse to play any other edition. :I

In this comic, I've based the books loosely on the real tabletop RPG books, namely that of 4th edition D&D. One change is that adventuring is exclusive to those born from the Players Handbook. Monsters born from the Monster Manual would never dream of ever being an adventurer... but that doesn't stop some from trying (or being forced to try) anyway!

DB GASP!!
I can't bare to see this... poor little Skirmish is going to be subjected to all kinds of speciest generalizations and prejudice! How can he possibly stand up to the narrow-minded intolerance of the 'good' alignment??? ;_;

I'm sure they don't WANT to hurt him. They just want the 100 exp divided by the amount of adventurers who got to him first.

Thanks! I spend a lot more time now at the thumbnailing stage (sometimes to the point of frustration) and I'm glad its paying off! And believe me, I'm hanging on only slightly to my current updating schedule. I can't keep up myself! xD

If only Sir Vice could see past his lawful good doctrine of duties and find that the true adventurer spirit is in our hearts, not our nature.

But who'd in a room full of adventurers would pass up free exp?

Oh yeah, that last panel is really excellent.

Oh Skirmish, The poor kid is in as much trouble as a cat in a room full of rocking chairs!

He needs a certain heroic Dark Elf to come to his rescue!

Thanks! That last panel was fun to play around with.

Skirmish might have to settle for a certain non-heroic somewhat evil Dungeon Master instead. Welp, he's doomed

Skirmish, claim you're with Gordy.

Wait, that won't help then Gordy will be in trouble also.

Skirmish, claim you've been captured by Gordy!

Of course! And when they ask why Gordy is doing such a bad job at keeping Skirmish captured, its already obvious Gordy is inept at most everything!

Bluff check time. :P

Claim to have had some sort of accident in childhood to have left you mangled, and/or claim to be cursed by some evil being to look like a monster without being one, or something like that. YOU CAN DO IT, LIL' GUY!

So many possibilities! I find it interesting to see what you guys come up with, cause it feels almost like a D&D game in the comments here seeing what you'd do if you were Skirmish!

I'd probably go with that curse idea, Sir Vice doesn't seem like the sharpest blade in the barracks. But Skirmish isn't the most vocal person... hmm
