CSI: High Fantasy
“Syrâ€™Nj, you just woke up with a birds nest on your tuchus, do you really think you can solve this mystery?”
“I really do believe it’s a matter of…”
*puts on goggles*
You, sir, get an internet, and a cookie. (::)
It’s cookiethulhu brand: insanely delicious. :D
…..Marry me dude, marry me…. ;) ^^
This was all I could think of when I saw the last frame.
Something’s about to hit the fan. Can’t wait to see what.
I’m hoping what hits the fan is bundle of mint.
…and that fateful scene from Lord of the Rings II returns to haunt us once more. Will Syr’Nj astonish us with ‘uncanny’ ranger skills as well?
Keep up the fine work with this WComic!
“There was a battle here. Orcs took some hobbits to the woods… nah, Ill keep looking for Frigg”
“Syr,Nj what do your elf eyes see?”
It’s over nine thousand.
I can feel it, the Dark Side of the Sap. It calls to me, especially in this place of pain and misery, with its gooey, sticky power. I must go to find where they have taken the Master.
Actually, since Syr is a wood Elf it makes sense that she is sensitive to damage to flora in her vicinity.
About the same as a Dwarf being able to discern things dealing with stone…
I love the close-up on her eyes. So much for the happy go lucky fa-la-la type Sylvan Elves.
My Oregon grand’pa showed me stuff like this. A decent tracker, w/o a hangover, could spot that.
Man, if these nuns managed to beat up Frig just thing what they’re going to do to Byron. I kid! Kind of.
Well more than likely it will involve a blow to the head
Uh, think, not thing. Obviously. Don’t post at 2 am after a 10 hour work day kids.
Ooh ooh next do an impression of Byron!
And after that, do a Frigg! Be all like, “Beech, please.”
“That’s a pretty good Gravedust impression there”
Ooh ooh ooh- Erica, is the underlayer texture in this one an actual gravestone? Looks kinda lichenous stoneworkish.
Closeups of flat masonry and granite make for brilliant textures; you should totally use photos of the backsides of monuments for the underlayer whenever Gravedust is on-panel, just to be able to toss in some good/creepy commentary for the next print collection.
Oh, yeah, we need some commentary for the next print collection. All the cool webcomics kids are doin’ it these days.
Let’s see. I see some moss, a broken twig, and a patch of dirt.
Oh my gods! the sky elves are committing genocide!
Looks like someone serious’d the Frigg up.
Ancient mysterious elf senses go!
Looks like some Nuns are about to get their rituals wrecked. Although Byron doesnt kill humans….maybe Syr will take care of it herself.
Why does everyone assume she’s worried about Frigg, eh? Eh? She’s probably just RAGING that someone broke a twig!
Spot check, Spot check, Spot check, Spot check, Spot check, Spot check, Spot check, Spot check.
diddle eye po.
Actually, I think that’s two Spot checks, and one Track check….I could be wrong.
There was a mighty duel — it ranged all over. They were both masters.
Who won? How did it end?
“The loser fell unconscious. The winners dragged her off making these footprints.”
and another Internet handed out for the more subtle reference…we’re running out of internets…
If this is a reference to the dual between Raistlin and Finstandantilus in War of the Twins, I approve. If not, I feel silly.
Err…..duel. Not dual.
Feel silly. It’s a reference to Princess Bride. :P
That word. You keep using it, but I do not think it means what you think it means.
I do not think that means what you think it means.
last frame… “Hello…my name is Inego Montoya…”
i’m so sorry…i’ll stop now….LOL!
Granted we saw her in custody already (though I’ld image she could have easily escaped), I wonder if Bandit is going end up tied to this whole mess and if so, to what end?
I’m willing to bet you my internet that Bandit joins the group in this chapter.
So someone spilt what smells like soapy water over someone and then had a fight, several people against one lone target who put up a fight and given she has smelled Frigg before has probably sussed someone’s kidnapped her former comrade…
Okay why do I keep hearing the theme tune for CSI New York here?!
Ether smells like soapy water?!?
Here I thought it stank like grain alcohol.
Ether evaporates quickly enough that there would have been no odor left behind this many hours after the attack…
( Figuring of course that Syr had to be passed out for at least 8 full hours, to sleep off the Mead, since the attack occurred immediately after Frigg left the tavern.)
This has been another episode of PSI ( Pween Scene Investigations).
LMAO, god bless Flintlocke =P
I would be really happy is Syr’Nj put her hands in front of her face, surveyed the scene, and then said “Here’s what happened….”
HEY! Major props on the art, man! In the past couple entries it’s definitely started to shine again as it did! Awesome work.
Erica, are you using some sort of clever photoshop filter to apply the grainy texture to your artwork?
If so, what is it? I want it.
Looks like we have a really knotty situation here.
I guess Syr has twigged to what happened then.
Time for her to get to the root of the problem.
She can’t just leaf this be.
All these puns are sapling my strength.
I’ll admit it; after you got past tree puns, I started to laugh.
are you saying we’re branching out?
I’m just saying we must have a budding sense of humor.
it’s really blossoming.
This situation could bloom at any moment. :D
Now that one was out on a limb.
Well it was about time for the story to branch out.
Weeeeelll lookie here. Syr’nj is about to bust some ass.
I have this problem all the time. You promise yourself you won’t get emotionally involved or pass judgement in an incident. You get emotionally involved or pass judgement in said incident. You end up on a massive guilt trip and beat yourself up for it. I can empathise here.
There’s an app for that.
The real question is, will Syrâ€™nj try to save Frigg, or just be really pissed as to the callous treatment of nature.
I’m wondering if she is pulling a Darkwing Duck moment, spotting all of these tiny plant related clues that tell her that Frigg was kidnapped, and missing the trashed tent, Frigg’s mace where she dropped it, and the big sign saying “This naughty girl has been repossessed by Our Lady of the Perpetual Bloodshot Eyeball.”
Oh god I hope she invented a gas gun that’d be so awesome.
Hangovers, tested and proven to make you a better crime scene investigator.
Natural 20 on a Spot check, I believe. Or Perception check, if you’re into that sort of thing. Either way, she’s pretty much contractually allowed to read the DM’s session notes now.
…THERE WAS A FIREFIGHT!
Six nuns! WITH BOOTS!
And a dog marking territ- No, wait. That was last week. The nuns, though; they were most DEFINITELY last night!
The bear, however, may or may not have been during the incident. The tracks aren’t so clear on that.
Bear Cavalry: It’s more likely than you think.
Y’know. It’s actually quite easy to spot these details when they’ve got big glowing circles around them.
Rookie error on the part of the nuns really.
But Syrâ€™Nj is a wood elf! There’s no way that the town guards are going to believe her. She’s going to have to knock Best out with a dart, and prop him up in a chair, then hide behind it to close the case.
…No bow tie…
