New Comics Every Weekday - Written by T Campbell & Phil Kahn - Illustrated by John & Jason Waltrip
“Well, I am banging the wood elf queen, so yes. I do think I’m special.”
Plus, there was the whole “Dead and buried, and now I’m back again” thing. So, basically, no more special than anyone else who’s died and then risen a few days later.
Braggadocio:”Well my name has the word brag in it and i got thrown off a cliff and [i]LIVED[/i].”
Haha, nice! I so want to hear a metal band called Berserk Messiah, one of these days.
It’s okay Byron. I think you’re special.
he’s also responsibly handling his Berzerkism, that’s worth commendation, too!
Well, there’s a slight difference between “Army grunt” and “Mercenary guys who also carry out diplomatic missions and act as PR for us.”
Loud, noisy bar; hearing-impaired Bragg shouldn’t be able to hear a thing Byron’s saying at normal volume.
Byr: “Hey, buddy! Are you following your doctor’s orders?”
Brag: “Oh yeah, to the letter. Told me to get myself a hot momma and be cheerful!”
Byr: “Bragg … he said you’ve got yourself a heart murmur, and to be careful.”
This is funny, but I’m going to address it seriously anyway:
It’s not reflected in the font size, since we don’t want to overload the art, but I would say Byron knows Bragga well enough to speak at the right volume.
I’m calling it, Angry Blonde Dude in the upper left corner is the next party member.
Looking at the last comic too, I think he’s just angry because his head is on backwards.
Random Wizard Smoking Pipe in upper right also looks ready for adventure.
You mean Gandalf
The one in the green cloak next to him must be Aragorn.
I hope this doesn’t escalate into a fight. I actually like Brag.
Also, I smell opportunity for recruiting more adventurer’s. They’re going to need them since Harky started his own recruitment drive among the Savage Races.
So, maybe Bragg was one of the few people to have lived through Byron going berserk once or a few times? He certainly seems to have the HP for it…
I don’t understand. Why is there always such an antipathy towards national, official armed forces ?
:-/ That comic trope is … well … the same as it is in our world, I guess. *sighs and shrugs*
P.S.: On a side note, that’s the one and only point to sting me a bit since I began to read the comic. SO no biggie.
It does make a kinda sense that in a world where “adventurer” is a valid career choice that said adventurers might hold some antipathy for army life. They’re pretty much opposites in terms of structure and obligations.
Well … yeah, I guess. Except that, as Braggadoccio says, adventuring means you don’t know if you’ll hold a job or get paid well enough to eat well – which, in Bragga’s case, must means a great quantity ^^.
P.S.: I remember you somewhere in there put a link about your current avatar. Could you remind me what was the comic’s name, if you please ?
Thank you, ahdok ;-)
I think you could safely say that our Armed Forces today are much better treated than those that existed in medieval times. Additionally, consider the context that the military was used in those times. It was probably just as likely to see them being used to quiet the populace as protect them. Plus, they tended to rape and pillage a lot more back then.
Hm hm. That’s pretty much like that, indeed.
Meager Meals™ sounds quite good actually. For when you’re not hungry enough to eat a horse, but rather a large goat or pony.
You think there’s actually meat in a Meager Meal? The free “prizes” inside include rickets, beriberi, scurvy, goiter, and pellagra. Collect them all! I’m not sure which has more zeroes in a row, the nutritional information panel on the box, or the Gastonian armed forces budget request.
Do you think the alt-text is talking about Byron himself?
Or if you’re in Europe, it’s made from of pony instead of horse. Hmm…does IKEA count as Europe?
Byron you twat.
Btw Phil, what’s going on with the Kickstarter? Are you guys simply too busy to make any headway with it?
Our time window will be open soon. We’re almost done adjusting to the new schedule, it’s taking a lot more out of us than we thought… especialyl with vague plans for the Kickstarter to launch yet another update per week.
A few weeks (or months) of meager meals might not be such a bad thing for you, Bragg…
So, why oesn’t Byron talk to Bandit about extending Brag an invite to the Peacesmasherskeepers?
That part’s easy.
Getting a man out of the army once he’s in it… that’s the hard part.
I have a relative that left the army. It took him 4 months of paperwork and meetings to exit.
There wasn’t much of emotional bonds that he had to break, though. :P
RED vs BLUE
I sense a good bar fight coming!
The answer to the predicament is thus: “I am no more special than you my friend, but the group I am in has special orders.”
One wonders… is that a real live mermaid up on the wall? Or is she taxidermied?
Knowing Gastonia? Taxidermied.
Clearly it’s a Taxidermaid.
I am so disappointed in you both.
Someone took her to the king and said she was a mermaid, and the king said “get stuffed”
Do gnolls age in dog years?
Taxidermaid is bit of a wallflower, isn’t she?
It’s only a model.
Nothing like fights between different army divisions.
Even worse though–enlisted wife vs officer wife.
“Even worse though–enlisted wife vs officer wife. ”
Hmm … I sense you’ve seen some of that happening. Right ? ;-)
Never bewfriend someone who’s too wide to hug.
You were right, I was wrong, etc. Of course Byron and Braggadocio go way back. Ah well.
Continuity Error Nitpick: The background of panel 3 implies that Byron and Brag have moved about 12 feet to the right while hugging. If Brag merely stood up, it should be the Taxidermaid’s hips(?) in the background.
I didn’t even notice that the first time I read this page. My theory is it’s so Gandalf could be in the background again.
Brag’s eyes are missing in the first panel, this is fine in and of itself because this is standard for that range of scope for the artwork, however…I can see his nostrils, and to me…they look like little eyes, right over his mustache.
