this is a gave situation
I hate my keyboard. Oh for an edit button!
Cheer up Ahdok, at least now Frigg can take his name! :D
P.S I know yer pain, my last keyboard was a god damn nightmare. Everytime i pressed one of the keys from 9-´ i got an extra “Å” in my sentence -.-’
Nooooo! Poor Gravedust!
Keheh, I love that button.
Thank you ever so much for showing me this.
i agree with abcus
That was just Grave-y.
Epic. The color scheme really helps bring out the dramaticness of Gravedust’s blood. And the expressions convey the immediate shock rather well. Oh, and Frigg’s line is priceless.
Incidentally, my brother-in-law’s name is Ayo.
Now you done it, you just pissed off the Frigg!
*shortest reign of terror ever*
Bugger, good cc like Gravedust is hard to come by! I bet he had trap launcher macros that actually worked…
Gravedust himself is off the global cooldown (double entendre? maybe?)
Oh, for a battle rez
well syr’nj is an elf… and since there are no worgen allies around, she’s the closest things to a druid you’re gonna get.
So totally a paladin.
1. Blood. From his eyes. Yeah, Gravey’s dead all right.
2. Finally we see what the cutouts on Byron’s hatchets are for. Restraints.
Hunders of House M.D. episodes have taught us all that people can bleed out from every hole (eyes included) and still stay alive.
Stary blank eyes are freaky though.
Bah, like webcomics follow medicinal drama logic.
Bleeding from the eyes in webcomics means you’re DEAD
When a sandal unfastens and just sort of helplessly, pathetically slides and rolls off a guy’s foot you know…he’s dead Jim.
stay in character… no ST crossover. Understandable though, since Dr. Crusher never got the sweet @$$ lines Bones got.
Is your mature language filter on?
nah, but my immaturity filter is broken… what you gonna do?
Just be happy I’m sticking to the good stuff rather than pulling a “Janeway/Archer”. Cheese! Cheese for my dog!
You forgot Sesko.
I know it’s down to personal taste but I don’t really hate/dislike Sisko. I’m annoyed at what a hypocrite he is but Avery Brooks’s done a good job imo.
I’m a DS9 fan myself, I just think it’s funny that NG fans keep dissing him for not being Jean-Luc. Back on topic,
He IS dead Jim ;)
@ alt-text: wouldn’t that be a chastity belt? Or possibly the genital cuff from Dirty Rotten Scoundrels? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dX3ePAOUK7U
NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! ;A; NOT GRAVEDUST!!!
Gravedust is a mystic. Kill him now, and he will become more powerful than you could possibly imagine. I think there is more story to him yet.
not just any mystic, the LAST mystic.
No chance the universe is going to let that go without some kind of fight.
Gravedust is going to be played by Tom Cruise in the GA inspired movie “The Last Mystic”.
No, he’s not. Because that would SUCK.
They’re going to cast SAMUEL L JACKSON as Gravedust.
Edward James Olmos, IMO.
[racism]But GD’s “white”! He needs to be played by a white guy. Come to think of it all dwarves are white ’cause they’re based on Norse myths. White dwarf power![/racism]
Which is why it always amazes me that everyone goes for the faux scottish accent for dwarves. No one has ever done the the obvious and made them talk like the Swedish Chef or something.
Gold Star for ruining the voice of my own damned character for me forever.
Does he Say, “BORK BORK BORK,” when he starts firing?
That’s actually a more accurate translation of “Baruk Khazad”
Tom cruise would fit the height requirement…
I’m guessing that “I can help him” implies that he’s not dead.
I think it implies desperation.
Byron seems to agree… though he may just be temporarily supporting her delusion to keep her focused.
Ahhhhhhhgh! Grave, nooooooo!!! Harki gonna die now!
John, this is an absolutely fantastic first panel. Much in the way of kudos.
Thank you very much, ahdok.
hats off to you sir, I now recognize your importance.
I’m guessing it’s going to turn bad for Frigg when it turns out that gem in Harki’s belly grants him the kind of power that let him nearly block Dusty’s attempts to talk to the ghosts of his victims.
Why do gems always have to grant mystic power? Maybe Harki just likes to look nice.
gems are often just worth lots. It’s rocks with holes in that you’ve got to be wary of.
Or music with rocks in.
Oh it’s on, like some technologically primitive version of Donkey Kong.
I was thinking more like have a trained gorilla throw barrels at people.
On hindthought, it seems that Gravedust’s Junior Archer’s Kit was supplied with his corpse. Why not, dunno … shoot that rat bastard a few times?
I’m dying to see Bandit prying that gem out of him.
Because it’s a “Mystic-Enabled” Junior Archer’s Kit. It’s only a bow when he wants it to be.
His corpse ? We aren’t even assured that he’s really dead.
Story wise it would be really stupid if he wasn’t, at least without permanent consequences.
“You only gave him how much poison! You idiot! That’s the dose for humans, not dwarves! You should know this, you’re a dwarf!” I don’t see them using a poison that might not work, either. I think the real life equivalent would be cyanide: flavorless, odorless, dead in ten seconds. You know it worked because they stopped breathing.
Well, they could have wanted him to suffer in the pit of death. Perhaps just a cripplingly painful poison so that the savages can make an example of him with the others.
Oh god, that picture of Gravedust lying there in the 2nd panel is slightly terrifying.
The greatest tragedy here is that they spilled all his ink!
I hope the ink didn’t get all over his pretty drawings. That would be unforgivable.
Oh no they di’int!
Now, it’s *personal*!
it’s a whole new definition of personal baggage.
They’ve spilled his ink on the ground… Savages!
This calls for Science! Quick, Syr’Nj, time to cackle madly and chuck some dynamite at the bastard!
Using dynamite should make her a contender for some Nobel prize.
I third the “oh noes the ink.”
Syr can probably science him back to life, but first…
./cheer for Frigg
Even though we all saw it coming, this page is suitable horrifying. Bravo, and I sort of wish you hadn’t, at the same time.
Very interested to see how this pans out. If Gravedust is indeed dead, his betrayer has ruled out employing another of his kind to contact him..
Shit just got real.
For some reason, I feel like I should photoshop panel 1 into Voltron.
Doe’s Voltron still work if one of them gets dead?
Shits getting real but what is keeping Syr’nj from Gravedust? I mean I can see that Byron is holding her back but… why?
We don’t know what sort of artillery-however medieval- is being trained on the combatants (our heroes). They may also be ordered to kill any medics first. Our heroes are stuck in a Ring of Death with unknown rules. Irrational Emotional Responses(Like what Syr’nj is portraying) are just what your enemies want you to do to allow them to divide and conquer.
Byron’s being a smart leader in this situation
1. Phil, you were right, no disappointment from Byron’s nose. 2. NOOOOOOO!
3. GD can’t be dead because we’ve seen him in the future, right? RIGHT?!?!
I THINK all the flash-forwards are now in the past, but if Syrn’j says she can heal him, he’s probably alive.
It’s neccessary for Frigg to handle buisiness now…It’s finally hit the fan.
Harki’s a troll with a gem in his bellybutton.
Am I the only one that though, for a split second, that Byron cut one of Syr’s arms off?
Also, ten bucks says that he’s not dead, just beaten to all hell.
*Thought*. Damn typos.
Now THOSE are some appropriate, in-character expressions. Good job, New Art Guy! (Can I keep calling you that? I already know two Johns.)
Well now you know three.
Sure, you can keep calling me that.
As long as it’s capitalized.
Oh, goody. Since we know each other now, will you draw me an avatar that looks like me, except cooler than I usually look, and with my hair less frizzy, and my glasses not reflecting a ton of glare, and not making a stupid face, and with superpowers, and and and…you know what, I’ll just do it myself.
…Later. For now, I’ll cheat and use a program.
Hey, why am I being moderated? Is there something WRONG with having long, off-topic conversations with myself?!
Praying the old fellow survives, so he can learn that diplomacy ain’t shit.
Diplomacy works best when conducted with your spear point in your enemy’s throat.
Quick, use Phoenix Doww..oh, wait.. sorry, wrong game.
Somebody haul his ass off to a temple and force Bandit to empty her pockets to pay the exorbitant fee for True Resurrection!!!
Maybe they should tell this Harki fellow that none of them are actually Gastonians?
I’m not sure about Frigg, though. Is Bandit a Gastonian halfling?
No, we’re agents … from Guilder! Yeah! That’s the ticket.
At best she’s half a Gastonian.
WHAAAT?!? No, Gravedust cant be dead. Hes a goddamn dwarf, dwarfs dont die from poison! They die in epic battles, 1 dwarf against 200 enemies and still beating the shit out of the lot of em when pierced by dozens of arrows and blades!!!
Besides: GO FRIGG, GO FRIGG! Kick some bellybutton-jewelery-weraing-trollass!!! But it would be really, i mean REALLY stupid from Harki to accept the challenge. Stylish and honorable but stupid.
…really? I was expecting Frigg to stare through walls and turn ascetic.
I mean, it is her name now.
Brilliantly done. The gravity of the situation and the flow of the first half of the comic is truly world class.
John the New Artist Guy, I tip my hat to you sir.
PS Frig’s line? Amazing.
