Yeah, That's a Pool on Top of the Tower


The evil wizard Chernobog's Tower must be quite an eyesore for his neighbors.  It's primarily designed to keep his teenage daughter Yazbella locked up and out of trouble.  It's way too high for even Rapunzel.  However, Yazbella did discover the concept of rope at a young age, so the poor evil wizard never had a chance.

I actually finished the strip on time again.  I owe it to the greatly shortened format - only three panels.  The top bit has undergone a change - the indicia, masthead, whatever the right word for it is.  Nicer font, I think, and not as obtrusive - but there if you need it.  Of course, my style continues to - morph?  Evolve?  Mutate?  Something.  Change.  That's the word.

And in case you missed it - I'm keeping Chartreuse in the strip.  I was bummed when she died in the D&D game, but I think I can go on with her alternate reality adventures in bizarro comic world.  After all, it appears she has fans, and we can't let the fans down, can we? :)

    1. @Lead - Imagine if all of the rope-makers in a fantasy world were suddenly turned into frogs. Hemp fields would lie fallow, sailing ships would become useless, and there would be an upsurge of frog's legs available at tavern menus everywhere.

  2. I think the best thing about characters that die in the actually game is that it makes it ok to kill them in the comic.

    Also, nuke that spammer.

    2. Damn you real-world OSR pool liner spam nukers!

      In the fields of spamdexing and OSR blogging, spam deletion is a process that consists of constant comment monitoring or assembling a loyal group of vigilant commenters. Far from being a single activity, large scale spam deletion is a feat of human multitasking...
