Frikkin irritating rabid savage tribals
GAZE UPON IT
I see what you did there.
Turns out Auraugu is actually part Drop Bear.
If he was a Drop Bear, they wouldn’t need Tectonicus.
Maybe also part Tigger and Jagular.
He can’t be part Tigger. The wonderful thing about Tigger is that he’s the only one!
and has had how many decades to start a family now? auragu is obviously his teenage son that got caught up in a youth rebellion movement.
Hit Aurau-dog with a distemper shot, Syr!
And I don’t mean the kind that PREVENTS distemper….
Drop Luchadors are the number one cause of death ins Australia.
The more you know *star*
Auraugu is teaching kids to eat their greens.
He’ll probably wish he had some ranch or thousand island
Snap into a Syr’ng! Oh hyess!
And wood elves are high fiber. Good for regularity.
Ah, yes… Well. I think “Aury-googoo” may have a li’l pro’lem see? He’s expectin’ “burger” an’ he’s gonna get “tofu.”
when i read “aury-googoo” i heard,
So Auraugu is one of the rudos, then. Gotcha.
Is it even really cannibalism at that point, or just full-contact veganism?
Whoops. Mis-click! That was meant for the post above.
maybe if you’d open your eyes, and, yknow, quit with the ‘zerking..
Gonna learn a basic rule here, i think: Do not pock with the berserk’s girlfriend.
Looking forward to the learning!
Why do I foresee Byron interrupting Auraugu’s hunger by removing his head?
He’s actually been in the tree for an hour just trying to think of a good one-liner. And his last words will be, “Fuck, wait, I just came up with a better one!”
This is totally canon. :D
I mean, even if he doesn’t die before then… just… yeah. XD
Also, great pouting Rachel avatar to go with those last words.
Woooohooooo GO AURAUGU Champion of the Fuzzy people.
it seems the woodelf is becoming a doggie snack…what a shame…i guess.
He’s going to … eat her ? Like in dismembering and feasting upon her flesh ?
Uuugh ! … that’s so gross.
Unless he speaks about “eating” her … which doesn’t make him any less gross, by the way.
No, dude! He has hunger for battle! It’s like Peggle Fever. The only cure is more battle!
You’re both wrong. He’s about to turn this into a musical number!
Don’t do it Auraugu! You’re not an herbivore! It’ll mess with your guts!
Last I checked hyenas (and likely by extension, gnolls) could eat just about anything and not give a damn. In fact, he probably munches on wood elves all the time when he has a bit of a stomachache, high in fiber and what.
Ok, this is the first time E-merl has looked properly badass.
It’s the squinty eyes, combined with the frown. But mostly the eyes.
I mean, consider Scipio. He’s verifiably badass, and how often do we ever see his eyes?
There was one time where we got to see his eyes open, and he was looking significantly less badass there.
Later on, we see him partially open the eyes, but with the support of an angrier-than-usual frown to counter-balance the badassedness. But right after? The eyes are open to the maximum, and the level of badass is at the minimum.
So yeah. Keep those eyes almost closed, and you too can look badass. Just don’t close them ALL the way, else you might trip over something. That’s not badass, that’s just clumsy.
I never thought of it before but this equals truth.
Basically, it’s hard to look awesome when you’re surprised or you have naturally big sweet baby eyes. Looking less innocent automatically makes you seem more dangerous and dangerous is badass aka awesome.
I was about to say! E-Merl is badass now! But he lost his hat …
His hat leads a secret life of it’s own, and is making a flanking attack on the landshark on the right.
Nah, the hat’s on his way to save Syr from Auraugu and become her new lover.
I freaking love Auraugu, he’s just so happy and competent. He’s everything a villain is not.
Kinda like the Joker.
Nah. The Joker wasn’t always happy. That’s how he remained so menacing. In the movies, in the cartoons, and in the comics, from what I remember anyway.
Auraugu isn’t actually menacing. He’s competent and creating a real threat but he’s definitely enjoying himself the entire time so, without directly facing him in a fight, it’s harder to be afraid of him. He reminds me of Coyote more than anything.
then where is ysengrin (and what side would he be on, tree-elf or ‘coyote’s?)
….I’d hazard a guess that Ysengrim would side with the elves. Until the last second. ‘Coz Coyote is the one with the power that gives him that body.
(Unless I’m mis-remembering?)
Dang it. Typo!
‘Tho he *is* a bit grim…
whenever I look at his eyes I keep thinking he’s smiling. Damn these villains are fun!
I’m pretty sure he is smiling. It’s kind of hard to make it definite with a muzzle, so I’m pretty sure that’s why they keep drawing his eyes like that.
Always teach your elite wrestlers how to sneak. This way, when they go berzerk from a lack of alcohol production, they can sneak up on the Hammerdwarf and knick him off for you.
I have to agree.. the beasts weren’t burning down the forest nearly effectively enough.
Okay, we still have the same Gravatar. Which one of us is the evil twin?
You are, for you are sneaking up from below for a devastating attack.
Perhaps I am merely striking evil where it least expects it.
For a moment I thought he had thrust a knife through Syr’nj’s neck, but then realized it’s just her ear.
Panel 2, bottom right… somebody’s got Athlete’s Foot. They make a cream for that, you know.
It seems the cat’s out the bag with Syr’s plan.
Even worse, Auraugu’s counter-plan was not a flop.
Okay one of two things will happen: One, she’s going to science him or two, we’re going to see someone flip out and skin a cat.
Again the art and composition of the second panel is outstanding. Bravo!
can we get it in a wallpaper?
I was reading through the comments to catch up, and it made me sad that it took this long for someone to mention this :) – Second panel is totally a winner.
whats the green glowy-ness behind syr in panel 3? is that part of the energy funneling into the summoning? energy radiating from the bough? something completely different?
It’s the latent energy caused by sudden conflict in the plot.
The proper chemistry term is “heat of confusion”.
Full Nelson is a bitch to get out of. Not calling Syr’nj a bitch. Just sayin’
Are you calling her a Nelson?
And not only that, but an ENTIRE Nelson? She is a dignified woman, have some respect.
so byron is just a nickname?
Byron Nelson….! If you think he’s deadly with axes, you should see him putt!
I hear that Talking is a Free Action these days. :D
WE GO TO CHUCK E CHEESES AND YOU SHALL FOOT THE BILL, HYESSSS!!!
I lol’d. Thanks!
MEET AURAUGHU, CHAMPION OF THE HUNGRY PEOPLES!
I’m thinking we’re about to see the limit to Syr’s anti-bezerker potion.
Syr, now is the time for your very high pitched whistle, it will drive him insane!
I thought it was a pelvic thrust that would do that.
Nah, she’d need her hands on his hips for that.
i love the champion of the fuzzy peoples he’s awesome, especially his face in panel four
once the woods lie in ruin, then I will allow you to die.
Faereksch’Nj has got the perfect “Stoic ’50′s Mom” thing going on.
I’m thinking more “Stoic ’30′s Dustbowl Mom.” Has our distinguished Mr. Waltrip been brushing up on the works of Dorothea Lange?
Her face as rendered in this chapter conveys so many things – sadness and suffering, yet strength and survival. The art in this comic is a win on so many levels.
Thank you. Thank you, all.
The Spanish Inquisition is old hat. Everyone knows to expect them these days. And thus, a new age was ushered in. Nobody expects the Elbow Drop from the Top Branch.
That’s a Top Branch Full Nelson Facebuster, held straight into a Full Nelson submission. (with impending threat of blatant biting)
Wrestler’s signature moves get names…
We have the one Bandit received:
The Savage People’s Leg Drop
The Fuzzy Femur
and this (flying/corner/ropes finisher):
Hidden Gnoll/Flying Facebuster
The Drop Gnoll? (Scarier than the Drop Bear!)
Stop, Drop, and Gnoll?
Stop, drop and gnoll is a wonderful joke.
Gold Star for all of this.
Yay! my second ever! … dang, now I’m gonna have to get a trophy case or somethin’… =)
>Syr’Nj’s Daily Notes on Science and To-Do List:
— Potion of Swiftness is very draining.
— Need to create Potion of Stamina. Test by slipping one to Byron before bed.>
– Potion of Stamina a success! However, friction remains a problem.
– Must create Potion of Astral Gliding.
Syr’Nj should be careful with that line of research. She might end up blinding Byron. With SCIENCE!
The risks are well worth it in the end.
Well it’s her end to risk,
TDR: I, uh, I don’t know how to articulate this well, but your username doesn’t really fit within the realm of acceptability around these parts.
170K words in English alone, and that’s the best combination he can think of as a alias for himself?
I’m not really smart.
