Ah Chu, writing an entire comic populated by Pikalite characters has to be one of the easiest ways to make comedy one can do I think.

If you don’t get the last joke, you should probably check the Setting page, but the short end is that Pikalites born during Arcania times have a permanent Tongues effect so that the humans can understand them.

Every once in a while, it’s good to write a comic entirely devoted to comedy. Here we have cannibalism references, Phantom of the Opera references, and if we count stasis, even SciFi references.

And of course, what kind of writer would I be if I actually revealed what they look likeTongue

Eulogies are quite interesting to write, especially if it’s for a character based on someone you actually know.


I had to come up with a quick few facets of Steph’s background and then fit them tenderly into a nice little sentimental speech by Igon.


For those wondering, the last frame isn’t a flashforward, so to speak. It’s an artistic bit to emphasise a point, like in page 2.


That’s all for now, I’ll see you again on Monday!

The easiest jokes to make always seem to involve potentially fatal injury.

Luckily Igon is immune to poison-ivy’s urushiol, as the recounting of Oscar’s first encounter with him in the Cast pages will tell.

Now, I’m not entirely sure if it would be lethal, but it causes swelling and in the throat that can’t be a good thing. Apparently if you burn the stuff you get a cloud of death from the vaporised urushiol, so it would make sense.

Ah campfires, they make everything seem very cosey for some reason.

I think it’s probably pretty obvious between Oscar and Rain’s lack of nature knowledge and Igon’s struggling that this is going to end rather badly.

Guess we’ll see next update.

Let this ever be known as one of the Missing Pages.

Why, you ask? Because the file I made it in has corrupted and I’ve essentially lost it, so I can’t make a duplicate without Cntrl+C and I certainly can’t edit it. Essentially, it’s missing from my Ink files.

Which also means I can’t fix the characters on that blown off door…darn.

Oh well, at least I got in those b-e-a-utiful light beams, they really make that last frame look wonderful.

Jokes aside, that’s really got to hurt.

I don’t care whether or not Rain qualifies as size Zero or otherwise, a human female and a male dwarf landing on top of a spellcaster cannot be pleasant for their Hit Points.

A beautiful story arc ended with the capture, release, and re-employment of arguably the biggest traitor yet discovered.

Ladies and Gentlemen, presenting her supremely royal highness, the Dragon Queen of the Moon Elf Empire herself, Queen Sildyu Ruithfel, accompanied by charming (And oddly uncoerced) dragon mount, Incendulus.

I can only imagine that a lot of the splendour of the admittedly-tarnished Namel Wall is lost on Sildyu.

I’ve honestly lost track of how many people have died in this comic so far, but this is definitely the first time we’ve actually seen Nameless show up to start reaping.

And of course, it’s the first time we’ve ever seen Tarka Dol. Immortal chickens make Death very annoyed.
