New Comics Every Weekday - Written by T Campbell & Phil Kahn - Illustrated by John & Jason Waltrip
I’m sensing some friggtion.
Scip’s cool tactics seem down right Friggid now.
I think she likes him or in her case hate-loves him, if I may be so koBOLD.
Aw Frigg, you were too blunt about the whole thing. It’s how he was able to undercut your victory so sharply.
So her new count is -941kobolds killed?
Frig how could you resurrect so many obnoxious Kobolds!
OVER 116 KOBOLDS MASSACRED IN A SINGLE DAY
REPORTS SUGGEST THEY WERE PROTESTING AT A FUNERAL FROM A PREVIOUS DEMONSTRATION
WHERE IS THE WORLD
D’awww, Frigg thought it was a competition, isn’t that just adowable~! x3
Silly Frigg, someday you’ll grow up and you’ll be a real tank too. :3
Meanwhile, the mage has slaughtered 120 kobolds on the other side of the field, showing up the tanks in damage output as always…
Using ancient techniques only known to those who spend years in meditation within the confines of their Mage Towers…
The Keyboard Face-roll. :3 ROLL FACE ON KEYS TO WIN! D:<
Someone forgot to close their angle brackets on the D drive.
Great, so Frigg has demonstrated the abilities of a Monk (Flurry of Blows, against multiple Kobolds.) and the abilities of a Barbarian (Rage) and some abilities of what could be considered an Inquisitor (Belief-based abilities (Glowy mace thing))
Posts like this make me wish the comic had a forum.
Holy shit I need to stop reading this blazed, I just realized theres a forum
I.. umm… where did you think…
Thanks you broke Valadrax. See people this is why you done type high! Typing high kills (other people’s brains).
I think that was Cleave for the multiple targets.
Cleave… With a mace.
Yep Improved Cleave let’s you attack again after a kill repeatedly (assuming that you keep killing) (the next one up lets you move 5 feet after each kill).
It could also be Whirlwind Strike(?) which lets you hit everything within five feet of you with one attack each.
I read the rules on that, it’s called Supreme Cleave, and it only allows you to take a 5-foot step once (or twice with a certain other ability) during your improved cleave. It does not allow you to take a 5-foot step after each swing ‘n drop (for obvious reasons).
The original Supreme Cleave feat was the third lvl of the Cleave feat and it didn’t put a restriction on how many five foot steps you could take. As long as you dropped the enemy in one strike, you could keep going. It was only available to the Samurai (and Knight Protector I think) prestige class. Had a player blow through a group of kobolds, just like these two did.
That was obviously Whirlwind attack.
It obviously was.
Its been said before Frigg is a Crusader, which explains the powerset pretty well. Tome of Battle for 3.5 Or if you’d rather, a 4E Paladin. Btw I think that one move was Whirlwind Attack
I can’t believe I’m saying this but I think Frigg is falling for the guy, why else would she care so damn much about one upping him.
Because she’s Frigg?
True, though the last time I recall Frigg getting any action she refered to it as a hate fuck beforehand (with great enthusiasm) so it’s quite possible that she isn’t sure if she’d prefer to smash Scipio’s skull or jump his bones. Condisering this is Frigg I’m not sure which possibility would pose a greater danger to his physical well being.
STOP BEING SECURE IN YOUR MANLINESS.
Thank you. Just…Thank you.
Pretty much sums up Frigg’s entire personality. (And why Scipio is the coolest. :-D)
The best part is that we still have no idea what he’s capable of if he ever generally tried to work for it.
The word is *genuinely*.
Yes. Yes it is. *sigh*
I blame the influence of other people on drugs.
And not my lazy reliance on a spellchecker to catch typos in the wake of cursor.
And here I thought you were alluding to our Scipio being akin to the *real* Scipio who was a Roman general during that Punic Wars. ;)
That just fried my synapses and no one even offered me a toke first!
(maggPi is now curled in foetal position on the floor weeping quietly whilst her cats lick away her tears in bewilderment. Computer is smirking smugly, earning cat scorn.)
He must have worked for it, he broke a sweat didn’t he?
Behold, the power of not giving a @$%#.
Scip’ is a honey badger?
What is a “honey badger”?
This guy is a honey badger?
Youtube Honey badger. Watch the one with way more views than the others. Then ye shall know.
Furthermore, you could look up the honey badger on that whole ‘Badass of the Week’ website. Entertaining read.
At least it’s not a dire honey badger. Or maybe this fellow is.
A honey badger is a professional shit-not-giver. Honey badgers are legitimately incapable of giving even a single shit. It’s sad, really.
Didn’t North Korea say that about Kim Jong Il? He never defecated?
I always thought that was a description of what he was full of…
I also heard that he was the largest single consumer of Hennessy in the world…
Nothing is quite as irritating as someone who refuses to be irritated.
Frigg used troll! It is not very effective.
Scip used honey-badger! It is SUPER effective.
After enjoying todays first frame’s layers, shadowing and x amount of kobold corpses strewn about, I can’t but admire at the many man-hours dedicated to detail in this webcomic. Thanks John!
According to the running score there are 117 dead kobolds littering the field, I don’t know if they’re all represented in the panel because I not gonna count up that whole mess of kobold.
WHO’S GONNA SKIN ALL OF THESE DEAD KOBOLDS?!
Sooo appropriate, your avatar. The berserker (or should I say former berserker?) *would* ask about skinning the dead kobalds!!
93-ish, plus a couple hidden behind Scipio.
Thank you, Chevalion.
There are no short-cuts around a “field of dead kobolds”.
God her facial expressions remind me sooooo much of helga pataki
Adell? And your avatar is a bearded gnome? Made me lol.
good god you’re right… makes me wonder who’s in the tube now
Frigg needs to stop being so adorable.
Poor kobolds just wanted some place to call their own.
So…why are kobolds even still a thing if this happens to them frequently?
Ever heard that thing about rabbits and multiplying? Kobolds are even worse.
Kobolds are nothing. If you can get them out into the open.
But once you go into the tunnels, you’re screwed. I have horror stories about fifteenth level groups ending up with a total party kill just because they wandered into a kobold tunnel system.
True, don’t mess with Kobolds and their warrens, they’re very protective of their tribes as a family, and are deceptively ingenious when it comes to traps… ever seen a trap where you fall into a loop of being teleported halfway up a pit you fell into about 20 times so you’re at terminal velocity, then the spell disappears and you’re goo on the bottom? Yeah, Kobolds are scary. D: That, and they’re descended from dragons! :3
I love kobolds. x3 I want a kobold plushie. ._.
With a 360 rotating neck!
Just wait until they start running into the venerable dragonwrought kobolds – that’s when shit gets real^^
And that’s before you run into PunPun.
Well, that and RPG ecologies make absolutely no sense whatsoever.
Well, I should have expected this…
And not a fuck was given that day.
Oh dear lord, the rage sex is going to be thermonuclear
if Frigg and Scippy knocked boots, would that take away her saint powers (supposing her religion has similar views of virgin purity)?
Highly doubtful, since she’d recently hate-fucked Best when her glowy-mace power first manifested (recently as in a few pages prior). Her original Order might’ve had vows of celibacy, but clearly Frigg doesn’t hold to those, and it seems clear that the gods of glowy maces don’t care.
It’s funny, but panel one is exactly how I imagine the area around my fortress looks after Goblin Christmas.
:| Did I hear someone mention fortresses? Does your fortress happen to contain vomit-covered dwarves?
I just had a flashback of me and my brother (both dwarves) ending a fight against stink-cloud slinging demons, my brother having puked all over his beard, walking up to me and just out of the blue, say: “I can’t tell which is worse, the stink cloud or my puke.”
Much beer was consumed that day.
They are only vomit-covered if you don’t edit the cave adaptation out of the raws. But man, if you leave it in … ugh … new meaning to the phrase “fields of green”.
Frigg’s rage meter isn’t OVER 9000?! I am disappoint 8C
But the Real winner that day…was kobold #118.
they’ve got his number.
While I love the idea of Frigg sleeping with anyone (absolutely ANYONE), I think one of her possible reasons for trying so hard at being impressive is because she’s a woman trying to prove she can fight just as well as any man. The fact that Scipio just doesn’t care and matches her so easily is what’s bothering her. But I could easily be wrong. :1
It’s because she’s insecure about her identity and is a man-hatin’ lib’ral feminist what’ll eat all our souls if’n we don’t buy more o’ them holy-wafers!
Why is no one discussing the sudden break in story-telling? The plot has almost come to a standstill, which should allow for all kinds of wild speculation. Is this just in-plot time passing fast (and, if so, why)? Have our beloved comic creators split up and John is running this thing alone, unable to produce dialog?
GA has a pretty varied style, it can be anything from dark and serious to over the top and silly, this is just the latest thing. The absence of dialogue is a large part of what makes these pages funny.
Yeah, taking a couple pages to establish a relationship/unilateral declaration of war is no big deal. Especially when it’s funny.
I’ve found it’s the things that go unsaid that usually have more meaning.
Plot doesn’t need to be a one way trip, 180mph down the highway, with no lunch or bathroom breaks.
Character development is as much a part of plot as bad villain monologues.
Consider this: The party faces down the Final Boss. The dashing swordsman of the group jacks the killing blow, as DPS has a tendency to do.
At the end he shouts “that was for my father you jerk!”
Now if nobody had ever gone out of their way to mention “Sword Guys father is deeead”, this would just be incredibly awkward and out of place.
It’s both entertaining and informative to see characters interacting with each other, fleshing out their personalities, attributes, and such. It gives us insight into the character so that when they DO something, nobody has to stop and think “but wait, why did they do that?”
Also, it’s amusing, and this is a webcomic.
Fear not, umm. Everyone is still here. It’s really not a break in story-telling, just a break in dialog. Although, there is still much being “said” in these panels. A picture is worth a thousand words, you know. Don’t worry. The word balloons will return on Friday page.
Yeah, guys. We were just trying something new.
I promise it’ll happen again.
Wait… this comic had words in the past? And here I’ve just been looking at the pretty pictures…
glad to hear, I think this style is perfect for pages that have Scipio in the forefront.
I really loved this. :)
Scipio is laconic and a paragon of tranquility. These wordless pages fit him well. Frigg needs no words, when she’s got her face. And middle fingers, let’s not forget those.
Oh silly Frigg. He in UNTAUNTABLE. When will you face reality?
No doubt about it. The Power of ‘Don’givashit’ is super effective against Frigg Smash.
-1000 into the rivalry zone. Isn’t this usually when they leave the party?
In “Dragon Age” it usually is, but in roleplaying groups this is just before the characters finally snaps and tries to kill each other. Depending on the players then one (or more) player will also leave the group. :)
