Happy Monday! :)

Sorry for the week-long lapse in updates. My hand is pretty much okay now, I think! :D Appreciate everyone's patience and understanding <3

Another huge shout-out for my senpai Morgenstern's KS:

There's less than a week left to get in on supporting a really amazing dude, and being part of a really amazing work! Please consider pitching in, or please pass the word along to fellow nerds who might appreciate a fantastic horror-flavoured anime RP :D

I hope you enjoy the update, and I'll catch you guys on Thursday with the next one~ thanks for reading!

I'm happy you find the tiny Nemi cute, lol XD I mean, she's small to begin with so I guess when she's even smaller... XDD

Don't worry, it's not his first raid and he's used to a hard knock (or two) ;D

XDDD I read that alt-text in the most deadpan-but-trying-to-hint-at-least-a-sliver-of-optimism voice I know and it is wonderful <3

I suppose it was too much to hope for things going smoothly... you can still do this, guys!

I can hear that voice in my head now so if this ever was an animation, I'd need that voice to be perfect XD <3

As for things going smoothly, well, we'll seeeee XD

So when we next see Gareth will he be thinner or shorter? ;-)

You guys are terrible. But yes, probably both. :P

For those who play Collectible Card Games (CCGs), such as Magic: the Gathering, this puts me in mind of my favorite bit of flavor-text from the BattleTech CCG. The card in question is "Move to Partial Cover", and the text is: "So, there I was, between a rock and a hard place. And I said to myself, 'What am I doing on this side of the rock?'"

LOL That's amazing, Gil XDD

Preeeetty much, though to be fair... he didn't have much space to move XD

At least temporarily~ that's what clerics are for ;D

Uh oh, someone took a direct hit. :(

It's alright, at least it didn't obliterate him ;D if you're still breathing (somewhat), a cleric can revive you no worries! <3

Crap! Gareth! That looks bad :(

Cleric!
rufiangel 30th Nov 2017, 5:29 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Yep, that's what the clerics on standby are for! -v-*)7 (Provided they're paying attention lol)

Let us take a moment to paws and appreciate the rough life and hard trials of Gareth.

*Headstone reads "Died trying to teach Behemo the 'shake' trick."*

Gareth: ... Hey. I'm not dead yet.

Ohhh, that looks painful... D:

Juuust a wee bit. But no worries, he's a tough boy. ;)

Macheman7
Well, he can't be... TOO dead. I mean.
That rock wall looks pretty brittle.
Behemoth totally shattered it. It actually looks a little like the Behemoth's hand took the brunt of the blow? So Gareth might only be at Critical HP!

oh man save him save him now

On a separate note- Another great comic, Rufi, and worth the wait! Glad your hand's alright again! :3
rufiangel 30th Nov 2017, 5:33 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
XD Ahahaha, 'TOO' dead - to be fair I think in fantasy worlds you do kind of have varying degrees of 'dead'. :P Like, *how* dead? How many death rolls have you failed so far? XD

And thank you very much for your kind words <3 I'm kind of behind on comments, I do apologise, but I appreciate it muchly :D

Glad your hand is better!

I think this party is gonna lose first strike benefits if they don't act soon D:
rufiangel 30th Nov 2017, 5:34 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
First strike benefits are definitely a good thing, it'd be a shame to waste it! :') Though technically they could always set things up again to regain that pre-emptive strike... provided all things can be set back up to what it was before... ;P

Re: alt text-- nah that's way too long of a sentence for Gareth to ever say all at once xD

(ok but in all seriousness IS HE GONNA BE OKAY??)

And yay! So glad your hand is good now! :D

((Eeeeeeee...))

Gareth certainly thinks a lot more than he says out loud XD

The World Guild peeps are very tough folk and can take a solid punch or three, no worries. ;) (Let's just hope they don't get stamped to the ground too much.)

I have no walls of text to write to describe how much I like this, Rufi!

Congratulations! You found a way to shut me up!

rufiangel
You are far too kind DLK! <3 Thank you very much, I'm glad you've been enjoying this sequence so far! ;v;* It's been a bit hard on me XD;; so it's always great to know it's worth the trouble <3 ;v;***
