The Wood Elf Wears Prada.
(Oh God I am so sorry)
Bag of Holding?
I’ve got a ‘ole in me pocket…
Portable Hole, the rogue’s best friend.
Sadly, this is no yellow submarine, Carl-E. :P
It’s got to be a Handy Haversack. P.H.s and BoHs both have the drawback of non-item-sorting. The Handy Haversack has included in it’s creation a spell that causes whatever the person reaching into it is looking for to automatically come to their hands, and it has several separate pockets allowing more than one item to be drawn in a single round. ( A Handy Haversack is also the only item that actually looks like a back pack…)
Woo, thank you! Saved me from posting nearly exactly these words. I agree :D
Also, that’s the BEST bag ever.
Definitely the best bag for a Magicky-type. The fact that it only weighs 5 lbs even when it has it’s entire 80 pound allotment full really helps low-STR chars.
I think the best bag ever is the one from this book called ‘Adventurers Wanted: Slathbogs Gold,’ simply because their bags start off with five rooms, and you can enter your bags, travel between rooms, and, the best part, upgrade them to hold more rooms. Plus, you can fit a friggin’ house in one room it’s so big.
in 3.5 it’s 120 pounds for more loot hauling for your spindly wizard. :)
I really liked using a quiver of Ehlonna for my mages. It sorts like the Haversack, with the limitation of needing to be a certain shape. It is a great way to keep scrolls, wands, and staves handy, which its three compartments fit well.
Short sword and rondel for the win!
Syr’Nj is not only awesome, but she looks fantastic here – i think it’s the goggles.
I think it’s the clothing mostly. It’s fencer-esque and androgynous. It allows her to continue to be feminine (arguably) while getting that desire for simple clothing that we all love, such as for Link and his tunic, fulfilled. There’s no huge shoulder-pads, no platemail. Just clothes that allow for the lean body’s curves to show without any sexual connotation.
The goggles don’t hurt, though.
(I think that this applies mostly to the last panel, though. Of course, that’s where I feel it really shines, with the abdomen and legs as they are.)
Frigg wants in on Syr’Nj’s bag.
No, I will not stop the innuendo.
Some people fear the warrior with the biggest sword, some the wizard with the biggest spell book. Myself? I’m keeping an eye out for the sonuvabitch who’s shoulder deep in some bag, cause ya NEVER know what they’re gonna pull out of there.
Fantasy art that knows what a buckler is and what it’s for…
My question is though.. why kidnap soft little rich kids when they can get better work out of the poor little urchins. All you have to do is give the urchins one good meal and I bet they’d be good to go. Or some middle class kid.. or something. Someone who’s used to working and won’t waste all their breath whinin’. Plus, rich kids attract adventurers… or was that the point? some villains are weird.
Nobody said that all the kids are rich.
Who knew Syr had it in her?
GIVE ME YOUR CHILDREN.
Yes, this is exactly what I want a metal encased stranger wielding a cudgel to yell at me. This will totally make my day better.
Ah, you must be a fan of girlswithcudgels.com then.
I’m honestly surprised that isn’t an actual website. Maybe it’ll be like wetriffs.com and come into being as a result of the laws of the internet. Like gravity, or dolphins.
Well Thank God I didn’t say guywithscabbards.org then. Wait. Oh Sh…
This may be my favourite strip so far.
Whoa now, let’s not get ahead of ourselves until Best dies.
TraderInTown, don’t ever change.
See, I’m conflicted on this sentiment. On one hand, belly shirt. On the other, that axe would just be wasted in the hands of anyone incapable of rocking out with it.
Excellent, now just crash the ship into the ground.
See, when your heroes, doing stupid suicide runs just increases your unseen Designated Hero Immortality bonus. As long as the plot demands, or it’s following the Rule of Cool, then you’ll get out of it fine.
i am loving Syrâ€™Nj so much right now
might have to revisit my own Nelf. suppose a Druid would be a good analog for a former field medic?
Syr’Nj’s mirrored eyes, straight face look reminds me of the scientist from that old game, The Chaos Engine. Friggin’ awesome!
I’m Guilded Age Co-Creator Phil Kahn, and I approve of this joke.
And in conclusion: whips are useless.
Well, they were pretty good at motivating slow workers.
And swinging from a tree bough or stalactite while wearing a fedora.
and whipping cream.
And for use as an impromptu limbo bar.
So long as the drinks have lashings of alcohol.
Don’t let Indiana Jones, Calamity Jane or Zoro hear you say that! Or Devo either… They’ll whip you good!
Depends on what you’re using them for, T-bat.
Heh heh heh…
Or any of the Belmonts, for that matter.
Bounding after head bashing, great stuff.
You know, I didn’t like Syr’Nj at all at first impression. But the more I see of the group in action the more WHOA AWESOME she busts out. A truly excellent example of the dark horse character. :)
Scary Shiny Goggles!
Syr makes me think of that troubled mad scientist/geek that ends up kicking butt in the movies ya know what I mean? Scaring the piss out of the jocks and stuff, all she needs is an annoying and/or un-nerving laugh right?
Is this now officially the closest Frigg has come to “girl talk”?
frigg… milady… your shield seems to be nothing more than a board…
ibeleive you would find an actual shield with more curvature would save your arms a little strain… you know, so you could do more bashing…
… I need a bag like that!
