New Comics Every Weekday - Written by T Campbell & Phil Kahn - Illustrated by John & Jason Waltrip
It’s the start of a new chapter, and you know what that means:
NEW WALLPAPERS AND AVATARS FOR ALL!
And of course, it’s time to SPIN THE WHEEL OF RANDOM COMMENT AVATARS! Who’s going to be your face for the next two months?
This situation calls for some Cash: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=It7107ELQvY
I thought that song was about a severe hemorrhoid problem.
Also thought his “Boy Named Sue” was about a young man destined to be a plaintiffs’ attorney.
You obviously don’t Understand Your Man.
as a bootian, i thought you were going somewhere very different with that…
It’s all right.
He knows not our booty ways.
But soon, soon he will be a bootician
At least everybody in that scene ought to be toasty warm, and the flames of inspiration should be burning bright. I bet the warmth of camaraderie will see everybody through the events of this chapter no worse for wear either.
Time for Smores!
Oh dear, looks like incompetent forest management techniques to me. Some selective clear-cutting by humans could have prevented this.
Yeah, if you are going to build everything out of nothing more than tinder, you might want to have a clear zone for firefighting around the place and some water to put out the occasional brush fire.
I have to wonder how good the elves’ magic in this world IS if a forest fire is a significant problem for even one mage to handle- magic bat or no magic baseball bat, fires have to be common in a forest that heavy. They haven’t seen a thousand fires caused by lightning, etc. in all the time they have been living in trees?
Haul some water up there!
If only they had a magic bear named Smoky to prevent such problems.
Yeah, Smokey Bear would have helped. But in today’s tough economy the elves could only spring for Yogi, and BooBoo can only fix so many of his fuck-ups.
Smoky wouldn’t do any good. Only you can prevent forest fires.
Only YOU can cause forest fires.
Burning down the house!
Turn off the lights,
and close your eyes.
Feel the energy inside,
So…. Is Jareth behind all this? Here I thought it was H.R. all along.
Burn baby, burn! Forest inferno!
disco elf will hustle solemnly
What? Still old man face? But I’ve had this one for like ever! Usually get it in fact. :(
Dudes… I’m a girl. (scowls)
Well THAT isn’t any better!
It’s ok Soirbleu, no need to be blue, sista.
You can have one of my rerolls.
As if I’d need rerolls.
Said with a Best avatar. Perfect.
Yay! It’s fall and the leaves are turning!
I bet those bright orange lights in the corner are unrelated and totally under control.
…I rolled the same avatar as last chapter.
Is this a sign?
I was out too late at the karaoke bar. The shit’s updated now.
If it’s any consolation, I absolutely killed it with Come On Eileen, Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto, and Love Shack.
I have pictographic evidence for those who think I am making up excuses.
You have a MOHAWK??!!!
Ah, yes. Reminds me of that old, childish jest: What’s better than Grease on Olivia Newton-John?
Hahahaha… I had to google this one.
No “Umi No Toriton”?: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ci4yDT9j98
It’s an American-style karaoke bar. Otherwise there would’ve been some Yatta up in that bitch.
Turaluraluray, Kilroy. Tin roof, rusted.
I dare ya to do “Tainted Love” next time!
youtube it or it did not happen!
You are saved by the greatness of the setlist.
The one where shit hits some sort of rotating series of blades.
Fire bad. Tree pretty. …Fiery tree? *brain shutdown* (This post may or may not be a blatant attempt to check out my new avatar.)
>Implying there exists “legitimate” reasons to post comments.
Test away, bud.
Buffy Reference FTW =)
Better queue some more buckets in the workshops and assign some dwarves to the corkscrew pumps…and for Armok’s sake, PUT THE ALE SOMEPLACE SAFE.
No, no, the MAGMA PUMPS, you clods! Magma puts EVERYTHING out!
Isn’t that akin to “putting out the fire with gasoline?”
Sorry. I wasn’t expecting an avatar to somewhat resemble me (as in; “are you two sisters? Except maggPi’s the ugly one, haha–OW!”
This avatar’s much prettier than your last, maggPi. I halfway thought you responded to this because “magma” is close to your name. Does maggPi produce magma? And does she even use magma pumps?
OK… dropping the subject now
Why, thank you, biggmac (two “g’s”? Are we related?).
Hmmm… I do have a high tolerance to heat, but I don’t believe I have ever produced magma (pronounced the way Dr Evil does). Not even when provoked to extreme anger. I *have* been likened to an ogre, though. Ask my daughter.
Bad news, Urist just ran into the ale storage while on fire.
We’re out of ale now.
Oh Urist is dead too
A true dwarf sees nothing wrong with the picture above.
Except for a lack of magma.
The whole village tends to come out to watch a single house burn. What happens when the whole village burns at once?
Shit’s on fire, yo.
Umm.. wwlaos’ avatar looks more like a “muttonchop” sandwich.
Aw, I just love Autumn, when the leaves turn all golden and… oh.
Quick! Cover all the birds in wet clay! Um, yes, it will protect them from the flames.
And if any don’t make it, just leave them with me, I want to handle the burial personally.
-Signed A Wood Elf who absolute loves to never eat anything but leaves and bark.
I’m wandering if this game can be loaded from a previous save?
Hmm, wonder who my new avvie is.
Pray Graya (or whatever Her name is) that Gnoll O’Hairy Luchador is dispatched soon enough before the dung hits the ventilator …
What pretty stars. =)
Aww, nutters. I really thought that somebody would intercept him…
Where’s the marshmallows?
Inside the tree houses.
Over in the marshes.
So, how about this Wednesday, huh? Isn’t it Wednes-ley?
(Testing my luck that I can, indeed, talk about off-topic things here. Let’s see if this breaks the internet.)
Are you talking about Wesley? Aren’t we done talking about Wesley? Like, 20 years ago? I think Mr Wheaton deserves to live that guy down, now.
Tsk. Loki. Always the shit-disturber. If you don’t let things lie, you’ll never be allowed into Valhalla…
Yup. Seems to be working. Sorry.
Yeah. The only thing that seems to be broken around here is my NECK! ha HA! (too soon?)
Loki of all trolls should know… it’s Wotansday.
Wodensday, Odin’s day. To-may-to, po-tah-to.
I’ll bet this doesn’t happen to Brick Elves.
On the other hand, it drove Gas Elves to extinction.
To be scatological, the Bean Elves had a minor flare up with it.
oh no…life is stolen? not Bandit again!
YOU BLEW IT UP! YOU MANIACS!
Wait, huh? Multiple people with the same gravatar?
It’s random, after all.
Oh that’s rather beautiful… putting aside the being roasted alive and all.
Guys! Guys! We’ve started this bitchin’ bonfire, break out the kegs!
All joking aside: A beautiful chapter page. And heart-breaking. Just scrolling down the page and gradually noticing the flames… Please, please, PLEASE save the Grove! I know it’s imaginary, and the flames are imaginary… But I hate the even just the idea of something beautiful built with love being destroyed… It’s happened too often in our own history, and isn’t likely to end soon.
(I heard a news clip recently about ancient Muslim temples being destroyed by radicals… Didn’t get to hear the whole thing, as I was interrupted.)
And everything burns.
The true fate of Endor
Somewhere, George Lucas read this and repeated his claim that everyone was JUST FINE afterwards.
I’m in agreement with MaggPi – I knew something was wrong when I saw the color of the canopy, and it was confirmed as I slowly scrolled down, watching the flames emerge…. (Great page, by the way, in case that wasn’t clear from how I was describing my reaction!)
And now, one I can’t believe hasn’t been used yet:
The roof! The roof! The roof is on fire! We don’t need no druids, let the Frigg and Bandit burn! Burn, Frigg and Bandit, BURN!
(Not that I actually want that, mind you, but dammit it scanned!)
Oh man. This is going to get pinned on all the wrong people.
You’re the Best
And no one’s ever gonna let you down.
Payet forward, dude. Payet forward.
If elves didn’t make pretty things to be destroyed, I don’t know who would.
The roof the roof the roof is on fire
The roof the roof the roof is on fire
The roof the roof the roof is on fire
We don’t need no water let the motherf****r burn
Burn motherf****r burn
That was my thought. Smokey would be crying.
No whammies, no whammies…
By the way, do you still have that World of Warcraft guild on SWC?
Birdman, I classify this as a win.
Short answer, No. We’ve essentially discontinued it because as it turns out: WoW is still a terrible, terrible game.
Time to step up and spin the wheel. New avatar test, GO!
First time I’ve commented here.
This comic is made of pure win with a side of awesome plot. Thanks y’all!
BUT HOW CAN YOU READ IT
IF YOU ARE BLIND
(Thanks for the kind words!)
My computer broke down and I’m just now really back, for reals…
AND YOU’RE ROASTING THE ELVES!
Gee, you missed me this much? :P
And don’t look at us, you were the one on firewatch detail!
HOW COULD YOU LET THIS HAPPEN
Broken comp = no fire watchin’ yo
Deforestation to the max.
Deforest Gump: “Burning is who burning does.”
Deforest Kelly: “Dammit, Jim, I’m a doctor, not a firefighter”!
It is the end of Soaring Woodhelven
i miss best…
A cover page getting >100 comments. I’m oppressed. -Depressed….. Suppressed……Hard pressed….
Horrible :(, but the art is beautiful
I see trees of red, forest elves in fright, the sacred bough is gone, and the forest is alight. And I think to myself, “What a wonderful world.”
Ahhh, yes… But the original is far superior to the choral arrangement. I also had to suffer through the choirmistress’s decision to make us sing “Imagine there’s no Greiya. …It’s easy if you try.” No shit, Sherlock! The damn forest’s on fire. There IS no Greiya! No Bough, no Limb, no Tendril! THAT IS WHY THE FOREST IS ON FIRE YOU SCHMUCK.
This, does not bode well…
Well… *that* didn’t take long.
don’t me I’m just testing.
Trying again doncha know
“The one where life is stolen.” Who’s stealing life from who, I wonder?
