New Comics Every Weekday - Written by T Campbell & Phil Kahn - Illustrated by John & Jason Waltrip
Hotttt. And, First! (?)
Hey..! Your new avatar is looking quite emotional over this lovely little scene. Shucks, I know how you feel!
Congrats, have some yaoi.
Gotta say, I did NOT see that coming.
And then it will turn out that in his culture, this is the traditional response when someone saves your life, and it doesn’t actually mean much (other than the computer is a ‘shipper… *Blink*
Holy %^&$ The computer is reacting as if a PC is present. Is Frig still around? Unless that earlier interaction forced this issue…ooooo O-O
I think that scipio is a player character and 80% sure that the elf whos name I can’t actively remember is too. But you are right, they seem to be going into depths that they normally only hit when one of “the 5″ are around.
Let’s just hope Scipio doesn’t pop her varryn. Flawed though he may be Syr’d dad has had enough stress. His sap pressure must be tree high.
R u sayin’ they’re acorn to pollinate? Pining to bark together at the moon? Wood elves are smokin’ hot, and Scipio’s big torso could use some lumber support.
I think this actually counts as cross-pollination.
Looks like the royal family’s in for some new hybrids! Bigger, stronger saplings, less prone to rust or thrips. Hardier in a wider range of zones, drought-resistant. Rosier fruit…
How could Poppa think this is a bad thing?
Well, less efficient/prevalent chloroplasts/root systems would probably be an issue – plus the whole abandonment issue (humans have comparative problems putting down roots).
Can I get a chorus of “D’awwwwwwwwws”?
No, but if somebody will put on the Barry White album, I’ll get some popcorn.
*cues “Never Gonna Give You Up”*
Scipio, you’ve got red on you.
and some green.
It’s christmas all over again.
Scipio is as economical in his romantic statements as he is with everything else he says.
I was going to say, “That was fast,” but you’re sharper in your analysis and summation.
He is both a man of few words and a man of action. Now and always.
Actions speak louder…
I think Scipio will be loud enough here shortly.
Talk about your slippery slope.
Ah, the others must have known, and that’s why they did nothing. Heal Scippy, and he will sex you up!
He will rock your boat
Beat me to it! I was gonna say “So this is why his squad didn’t fuckin heal him…”
Whaaat – a second daughter falling for a hated human? Without the aid of a matchmaker? Syr’Ng’s dad will start to feel like Tevye from “Fiddler”.
So much for “Tradition!”
But on the other hand…
There is no other hand!
Don’t you mean “On the other leaf…”
We’d turn over another leaf…
But the leaf his daughters seem determined to turn over is not safe for mixed company…
Shipping wars now open. Is scipp a player? Does he actually love bandit behind the scenes?
…the physics alone boggles the mind.
certainly would boggle somethin else..
Two of my better friends back in my WoW days roleplayed a Male Draenei/Female Gnome couple.
They made it work somehow.
Shrink Pots. Enlarge spells. A lot of Butter. Patience. Practice.
Take your pick of the mix.
It happens out here in reality pretty regularly without nearly as much “magical” assistance, that’s for sure. Anyone seen Shaq’s girlfriend?
and somehow, the humor in the comments THERE reminds me of HERE….
What the shit???
Don’t trust it! It’s the brain-vines, I tell you! She’s got him in her weedy tendrils now!
That would be the short and curly weedy tendrils, right?
…maybe more fibrous? Like how some leaves are fuzzy?
Oh God! What the..? Am I actually contemplating this?? I gotta go bleach my brain, now.
Perhaps…petals? Shape and placement optional.
Paging Georgia O’Keefe!
at least he’s not a lumberjack.
No, he’s a plumber, and about to lay some pipe.
No, he’s a clam diver, and he’s about to find a pink pearl.
Oh, gawd! I had successfully forgotten that from highschool, and now you’ve gone and dredged it up again. Thanks. Ever so much. 50/50 yuck and lol.
Would you prefer we say he’s a dire bear, and he’s going after some honey?
He’s a sailor, and he’s going to park his yaht in the Hair Harbor.
Hey, learn something new every day! Scipio is “on for one’s greens”!
I always figured that dinghy worked better in place of yacht, as in “berth my dinghy in Hair Harbor”.
Oh come on.
He’s going to beat his sword into her plowshare, and having gone agrarian, he will plow the furrow, and all of the plot!

Hmmm…. Good point; dire honey *might* actually work better. After all, she doesn’t look very pink, anyway. And dire honey can be any colour we wanna imagine it to be!
And… Could you please link Mr Carlin’s List? I’ve seen it before, but I’m sure some others might like to as well.
Seeing all your posts while I type slowly… Hee hee hee!
I guess it’s hard to type fast with only one hand!
The site layout makes it hard to make replies when the comments get too deep – I can’t see what I’m typing on the right half.
AN INCOMPLETE LIST OF IMPOLITE WORDS:
2,443 FILTHY WORDS AND PHRASES
AN EDUCATION FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

Well, I’d better try to get to sleep, as my alarm goes off in a few hours. Thanks again for the link! I look forward to reading people’s reactions!
Byron might be a lumberjack, but he’s okay.
well that was quick.
Rachel’s a voyeur. Who knew?
it’s always the chaste ones
Those who will, do.
Those who won’t… watch?
Her face in the final panel is the best bit.
I’m guessing he hear her speculation of “beautiful dire bear” and figured no one would ever top THAT line! Scip took it as a compliment, and is now giving in turn!
Actually, all goofiness aside; that really is one of the simplest, sweetest, most honest bit of romance I have ever come across, real or written. Sigh.
Dang it! Now I’m weepy.
Ah, I am too, now! ‘Cept as you already noticed, my avatar is above… :D
Y’know, I realize humans live for a paltry amount of time compared to elf lives, but still…
You don’t have to move THAT fast! Heehee.
Technically, she’s a child molester.
Technically he may be one too. That’s the problem different time scales.
Wasting no time.
Hmm. Ginger kids with green skin. They should have noooooo problems at all with peer pressure in school.
A little bit of selective breeding, and they’ll be on their way to making Nac Mac Feegles.
Oh man, I just finished reading The Wee Free Men. The concept alone excited and terrifies me.
Time to conjure me up a lawyer.
I’m not sure if I should say yes or no.
If they inherit Scipio’s build though, they’ll have no problems at all.
Poison Ivy’s true origin revealed!
This pairing is cute and all, but I really think Scip is under the influence of something, intentional or not. This is kind of coming out of nowwhere….
He’s under the influence of “Someone healed me!”
I don’t think Scip gives a wizard’s bony behind about politics.
Exactly! Even if he’s not looking for a commitment, he’s definitely grateful and she’s cute. Besides, unless he’s aiming for a three-way or Rachel is kind enough to leave them alone, I doubt it’s going farther than a kiss right now.
I don’t think Scip gives a kobold’s scaly arse if Rachel watches or not.
Fyr’nj might though…has she learned “summon Canopy Wall?”
If I recall when E-Merle asked for a consultation Scipio said he wasn’t experienced with talking to women. Outside of the talking part, who knows? This could be pretty regular behavior for him. For all we know he’s leaves a satisfied woman in every town he passes through wondering what his name is. Silent doesn’t necessarily mean celibate.
“Out of nowhere?” Maybe, but the *one* emotion (if you can even call it that?) that we’ve heard Scipio express is “it only hurts when my team doesn’t fucking heal me.” So someone came along and took up the slack, and as Dove said, “he’s grateful and she’s cute.” And he probably wasn’t injured enough to have not heard any of the things she’s been saying about him. So he had a clue it wouldn’t be unwelcome…
I think he’s under the influence of “cute girl is flagrantly into me.”
What do you bet that Daedalus’ spell got Scrunched, all the effects of “feted, well-fed, distracted” for the whole crew, laid on Scipio (the tank contained the aggro!)
Or… maybe the effects were distributed: Byron is distracted (you saw him), Syr is well-fed, and Scipio is about to be feted.
heh. Feeted. whatever gets the waterworks going..
Is that a comment on length?
Wonder if he’ll get a fete fetish?
Wouldn’t that be a root fetish?
@ Andreas: HA! :D
I am just rendered incoherent from the d’awwwww.
Isn’t it obvious? He’s gotta hook her, so she’ll join the team. That way he can have a REAL healer. And he’s pretty sure he’s got the right bait to hook her deep.
That’s not a bad idea. Especially if he gets some Fr’nj benefits out of it. B)
Thank you. Some one had to say it.
Hooray for Scipio!
You know, this was something to expect from him. I mean, he never speak too much, does him? So, what better than a “thank you” and a kiss to express his gratitude?
Of course, I don’t know what would have happened with the healer being a guy… maybe just a “thnx…”
It would have made the comic that much more interesting if it had been a guy and they kissed. Now that would have been one that noone would have expected.
Just which Internet are you surfing? Can’t be the same one I’m on.
Now that you’ve jinxed it, we can expect a deluge of brain-searing gay porn of Scipio. I will have no choice but to reinforce my webfilter, turn off my computer, and hide in my bomb bunker until the planet has recovered enough to support life.
That was sudden.
Man of Few Words.
Scipio. Conservative with just about everything, including the smoochings, consider yourself lucky Fr’Nj.
The father is going to have to deal his daughters infatuations. Nip it in the bud.
Goddamn humans, stealing our flowers!
Please, pointy ears … ;-3
You’re just two flowers down so far. Not a big deal, is it ?
That’s what they always say when colonists move in on the natives.
We all know flowers bear the best forbidden fruit
Less than 10 hrs since the strip came out and 75 comments already. Who would’ve known people would be so interested in physical intimacy.
Still, the Return of Best should top that easily.
Oh, how I do await that day
How do you know she isn’t Best?
Because that would be like Arnold Rimmer in Kochanski’s body – just wrong.
Given that the computer seems to be reacting as if a PC is present, and I don’t think Frig hung around, you might, in fact, be looking at the return of Best…
Oh man, da’s going to pop a vein.
The hills are aliiiiiiiive with the sound of WOKKA CHIKKA WOKKA CHIKKA WOKKA CHIKKA WOKKA CHIKKA BOW-CHIKKA-WOW-WOW.
I am imaging George Takei for some reason.
Oh MY! ^.^
i’m glad i’m not the only one.
long time reader, first time poster.
couldnt hide any longer. i had to say that i am consistently and frequently impressed by this comic and its ability to communicate honest emotion.
I guess the taste of burnt tobacco is an aphrodisiac to some species?
Oh, it’s not to yours? ;)
Not really. My third tongue shrivels up into a hard lump against my rear incisors. If it’s really bad, I ask my human girlfriends if they want a drink, which helps loosen both of us up.
That was his favorite ear. He is VERY grateful.
Also, he was likely conscious and overheard most of that.
Oh wow, that comment is hilarious with the shell-shocked Gravedust avatar.
That should shut her up ;)
I guess Scipio is finally claiming his adventurer’s Fr’Nj benefits.
Where did Rachel’s eyes go in the bottom left panel?
Never, ever trust your women around human fighters. We get extra feats AND skill points. Lots and lots of extra feats and skill points.
For that matter, never trust your men around human fighters – great cleave-age from level 1 if you choose the right feats.
It’d be interesting to see Thunt do a female MinMax, that’s for certain.
I’m sure there is one somewhere in the Maze of Many.
This is lovely! :)
I think, when Fr’Nj was first introduced, there were actually comments along these lines, predicting that attraction to humans runs in the family. Admittedly, most such comments seemed to ship Fr’Nj and Byron, predicting sisterly conflict, but even so, it appears they called it.
Wuv, twue wuv
I’m just waiting for the following exchange:
“So let me get this straight…you masticate plants, roll their hacked pieces in more plants, then set them on fire and suck on their charred corpses over the course of an hour or more?”
“Well, sometimes I just use a hookah”
He’s a lover AND a fighter.
Hey, if this leads to us getting a look at what’s under various portions of Scipio’s armor, I’m all for it!
–Dave, don’t judge meeeee
Scopio… you are a man of few words, but daaaaaaaaaamn… you actions speak for themselves!
