New October donation wallpaper, Loth and Sev relaxing at a spa. Next month's, I don't want to give to much away, but lets just say it starts with "L" and ends with "oth breathing fire". After last week, I don't really know what to say. I will say in most books/movies/comics/video games I'm drawn to the villains. My favorite villain, of all time, is of course Count Tyrone Rugen. I'm not saying Galian is anything like Count Rugen, but Galians face in panel 5, I've never been happier. I'm a little sad he won't be around for much longer, but oh well.

Also, we've changed it so you have to log in to leave a comment. I don't like when a website makes me do it but until we can come up with a better solution, that's the way it has to be for a bit.

woot! first.

eflint, i will be downloading it probably saturday, and you my good man will be $3 richer.

also: love cades face in first panel, cant wait to see ral vs galian, even tho loth or sevi will probably step in, and it looks like ral is about to get his murder on.

also, nice to see loth actually caring about the party.

"But for me it was...Tuesday." SEE: "Street Fighter: The Movie" (the one with Raul Julia & Jean-Claude Van Damme, remember?), and also "TV Tropes and Idioms".

Yay update. Turned out things got resolved (with bare hands and broken teeth).
Hehehe, "Just another Tuesday for me" must be the new oneliner of the day :D

""Also, we've changed it so you have to log in to leave a comment. I don't like when a website makes me do it but until we can come up with a better solution, that's the way it has to be for a bit. ""

Better off that way, dude :).
Agreed, it puts a small hurdle for those who are lazy and would comment with ease.

But the process of registering is easy and standard. Just grab a name and a simple password.

I don't think those are teeth. His mouth is closed, so there's not much chance it's anything that came out of his mouth.

The bandit's his father I believe... a little confusing because he says "what have you done to me sister" last page, but this page the last thing he says is "you bastard that's my mother"

well as it turns out the crest came from rals mom not rals sister as ral originally believed. so the cats out of the bag on this one and i believe ral will reveal this is his father to the party in the next 3 comics if they havent figured it out already. also, THANK YOU EFLINT FOR THE PROMISE OF LOTH BURNINATING THE BANDITS. also, sorry, but i cant hit the bank til monday, so i'll have to buy the wallpaper then.

Crzymnky is correct, this is Ralidant's Mother's Crest. His mother's name is Teiria. It's one thing to find a man whose willing to do unspeakable evil, it's another who is happy about doing said evil to your mother.
That was what we were trying to show here with Ralidant's Father and Ral himself.
And The artist wants me to promise that there shall be firebreath in the November Wall Paper. But also don't forget it's October, and we have our Halloween Wallpaper coming up.

@Talos, you are correct. No one can use the same username that is exactly like yours. Now if someone signs up and is like Talos666 or something like that, well... we can't exactly stop that.

I suppose I'm missing what you consider heavy handed.

It's not heavy handed persay, a lot of media use the same design to have their parents look the same. Wolverine and his "son" draken look fairly similar. Cyclops and his father are fairly similar in build and facial structure.
It's simply genetics that your going to at some level look like your parent. It may skip a generation due to genetics but it might now. That's simply how it goes with nature. And one thing that both the artist and I strive for is a certain sense of realism in the comic. Granted we have a mage, a halfing and two obvious non humans who can breath fire... but some liberities can be applied with a fantasy comic.

What I consider heavy handed is having a character, who isn't designed to do this, break it down for us what's going on. It becomes like a guy giving the play by play, fine if it's confusing, but if it's fairly straightforward not needed.

Perhaps we have two entirely different methods of story telling. But I always look forward to helpful critiques. Things like that make me a better writer.

Sorry, I didn't mean to make them look so similar, I thought the fact that Galian had pronounced cheekbones, a massive jaw, and a wide flat nose to Ral's thin elfin features would make them different enough, I'll try harder in the future.

Not for me to decide :) but I would say leave it as it is for the next pages. I don't know how Daddy-o will progress in the upcoming pages, but I'd say change his looks if he does happen to disappear and show up later (where you would change his appearance a bit).
But if you figured a way to make him look different and it is fitting, by all means, change it :>. "You the man, dawg!" ;D

Yet I still don't get why it is such a problem for others. I'm just confused since one might just as well say that it is foolish that Ral has elven-pointy ears although he is half-human -- so the hair thing and other facial resemblences can't be that bad. Or am I seeing things wrong? ^^

I think Talos is the type of guy we call a troll. He's gonna complain about the stupidest stuff that no one else has a problem with just to do it.
He's politer than most, but he's still trollin'

eh, lay off of talos guys. talos, i am assuming for the remainder of this post that you are male, please forgive me if you are not.

so far talos has pointed out the weak point in this comic and for the most part i agree with him. jumping down his throat for saying it will not make these things go away. in fact, eflint and mirlinth have asked repeatedly for our feedback so as to make the comic better, and talos is doing a magnificent job of critiqueing. yes, he's a bit blunt, but who cares? he's offering criticism which if taken to heart can concievably make the comic even better.

i dont think talos is a troll, quite the opposite in fact. every bit of criticism he has offered has been helpful, and well reasoned. what we are seeing folks is another fan that wants to see this comic succeed, and is doing it his own way.

cheers guys

omg, I am going to post a very stupid question. I had to do this before on FA regarding somebody else's name.

But...
Is Loth phonetically pronounced
"LAW-th" (rhymes with moth)

or

"LOW-th" (rhymes with both)

groove, i believe its the first one, or at least that's how i've been saying it since i've started reading.

yw talos, and i agree with sevi looking skinnier than usual. i have a list somewhere of my favorite loth poses, but i dont think that one made the top ten best.

the way sevi handles that halberd, her arms need to be bigger than rals at least. Eflint, you keep trying to make them look thin and wiry, but they are warriors. kinuko has trained for years in unarmed combat, loth swings that huge sword as if it was a toy, and again, sevi has her halberd. give a try at making them look like they do that crap on a daily basis rather than being anorexic please.

and yes, i realize how hard you work at this, and believe you me, i sure as hell appreciate it, but yes, less skinny in the future please.

cheers all

I suppose it is not easy to squeeze things in, even when downsizing the whole thing. But it is true, her arms really are skinny. I think he just has to add more muscle mass - unless Sevikira was supposed to be like this.

@nameless, great man. I'm a person of my word. I'll go ahead and link you on your Links Page.

@everyone, I can simply say this according to my thought process Loth herself can lift without grunting nearly 500lbs do to her supernatural strength. Sevikira slightly less say about 400 or so. Now coming at this logistically, even though I know the artist and mistakes happen, realistically if you can lift that much weight and you don't continue to exert that much your muscles will eventually atrophy and shrink to what is needed. But that has little to do with this arugement.
I could link everyone to a picture of a realistic power girl with giant muscles if you prefer so you can compare the differences.

Also I pronouce the character namess like this
Mir Lin Nth Lawth
Ral I Dent Fiz ali
Kade High Gallow
KenUko Hrada
Sev Eh Kir ah Fell done
Not that the way I pronounce them makes any like of difference. I've always been bad with pronouncing things. Which is why these names are hard to say so that I can hear what everyone else says it.

@Nameless, We've put it up on our links page.

There you are Mate. Hopefully your comic becomes a big success. If you want if you can give us an image/banner and we'll use that instead of Just the words "Borded to Death"

@Nameless, ultimately that's your call. But take it from us. You want it to look stylish and easy to navigate. We never did get the roll over javascript to work for the next and previous arrows and had to change the way they look.
Your layout is going to depend on what you like most. Frankly I like Tables and frames even though there are probably a dozen better ways to do it. It's all taste. As long as you stay away from clashing colors and the like you should be good.
You probably won't need a forum, I realized shortly after making this site how little use it is with the fans commenting directly here at the page.
And comic fury makes adding pages easy, but I'm not sure our wiki is the best one out there. It is free though so that helps.
The artist might have more helpful suggestions since all I basically do is handle the PR and Writing. He does all the hard work.
