Hey look! Its those guys! "Who guys" I hear you say? These guys on page 9 of chapter 1! They're back to inadvertently help the protagonist and... oh wait... they're kinda jerks now. Looks like a robe and good intentions can only get you so far as a kobold!

Also, there I go again doing foreshortening. WIDE ANGLE LENS ACTIVATE! It seems so appropriate for viewing from Skirmish's perspective. Always looking up, always being looked down upon.

Next Update will be around Sunday! Thanks for reading!

Aw thanks, Draginbeard! I would love to see how far S.S Alignment could go out in yonder waters. I've been thinking of redo'ing the website and starting to advertise it more.

With Jolly's somewhat confused look, I had to show the truth of his hidden genius! XD

Poor Skirmish....things seem to go from bad to worse for him every like 20 seconds.

He must have a terrible luck stat.

That Re-Bubble in particular was one of my favorites!

Being small and a monster in this place doesn't give much advantage to poor Skirmish!

As weird as it might be, they aren't evil! But that's not to say they are entirely good either! Adventurers and Monsters have a bad history, since those born from the Player's Handbook are innately good, where as monsters from the Monster Manual are innately evil. A natural good vs. evil conflict emerged from this and its been going strong ever since. One CAN change their alignment over time, but this good mankind vs. evil monster rule of thumb generally dictates how the alignments function.

There's a lot more to the history of Alignment, some of which I'm not sure whether to post on an extra page or wait til the time where I have it expositioned (which is quite awhile away), but for right now to kill Skirmish wouldn't be an evil act for these two adventurers, since all monsters are naturally evil in this world. Skirmish may not be entirely evil, but he was born evil, and that's all the adventurers need to know to make their decision. Though now a days, these adventurers do it more for experience than righteousness...

Thanks, Centcomm! That means the world to me! Especially since I'm going to art college this fall and this comic's focus was to prepare me for it! Of course now my focus will be continuing it through college! :D

The Re-Bubbles are a very nice touch. And gosh this D&D world is so racist.

To be fair...it's rare to find a comic based off of D&D which doesn't have extreme racism. :P Seriously, it's, like, a fundamental part of all D&D comics. :P

JRChace

And the Re-Bubbles are so quick to do! They are extra fun when there are cameos in the panels too!

As for the racism, it ties along with my reply to Dodom's comment above. I feel like I should shed more light soon on some history, but basically mankind is born innately good and monsters are born innately evil. Its less about race and more about alignment, which would make it... uh... alignmentism? These adventurers attack Skirmish because its the natural conflict between them. Also, exp points!

Though, I don't avoid racism entirely. I can say there ARE half-breeds between man and monster in this comic, thus half-orcs and such, which you will see more of later in this chapter. You can imagine what problems that makes in this conflict between man and monster.

Well I kinda guessed it wasn't going to be them (I know I said it was going to be them, but I noticed later the warrior had a helmet which the previous warrior didn't have). Oh well.


Poor Skirmish man, recognized again.

It was a good guess anyway! I do have a habit of bringing back things. The adventurer trio are very likely...

Skirmish is the needle in the haystack. They extremely shiny, LED lit, EXP filled needle.

A flimsy figther and a out of shape archer, they sure fit with their class perfectly. But the warrior has a strong finger in his possession. And the ranger has a thing for gnomes, wonder what the cause for such hatred is.

Actually its not gnomes, since he implies that he knows Skirmish is a kobold thus his favored enemy being as such. I had an itching feeling this page may have been too vague with showing how the ranger knew Skirmish was a monster during his conversation with him.

Snifflesmore

Well, it wasn't to vague. Just me having a small wish that the ranger hated gnomes instead of kobolts.
