    Little Whiskers made my day. Thanks, Giant!

    edit: that's not true. The Whole strip is so full of win, that it all made my day.

    No, the tiger is not defective. It simply recognizes that Mr. Scruffly is the true king of all cats, as all cats should.

    Okay, enjoyed the tiger running from the cat. That was cutely entertaining.

    Wasn't there a list of surname given by Belkar? Here is another one ;)

    Blackwing wants to know if he'll play the lottery?
    Not if he'll win it?


    To Keltest: I'm more focused on Wrecan's head on this panel
    Is he an owlman now?

    Mr Scruffy appears to have vanished in panel 3, though I suppose he could just be behind the railing.

    I wonder if the fact that the tiger seems scared and nervous will at some point have plot relevance.

    Man, this is such a heartwarming, fun strip that now I'm doubly worried for Veldrina and Wrecan. And Little Whiskers.

    That tiger looks superb, by the way. I'm enjoying the art upgrade more with every strip. Just think what Little Whiskers would have looked like back around the time Miko showed up.

    I am starting to wonder where Bloodfeast the Extreme-inator (sp.) is, though. Did Durk Malackssen toss him overboard when nobody was looking?

    "I think I got a defective Tiger". That line coupled with that particular scene nearly made me spit juice all over my computer monitor. It did wake up my wife from my hysterical laughter though, she wasn't to happy.

    What is going on with Wrecan's shield in panel 3?

    Hmmm...On closer inspection, it appears that his head has done a complete 180 degree turn, based on comparisons of those hip plates between panels 2 and 3.

    Yes, it's true. I've seen a small dog with a commanding enough personality to set a big one quailing with a glance.

    Nice to see Belkar and Vaarsuvius back they have been absent a bit lately, (I quite enjoyed the joke about the NPC panel-filler I admit).

    Wrecan's shield in panel three seems to be on the wrong side of his body.

    Love the huge tiger being chased by tiny housecat. :)

    I'm sorry, Wrecan, but Elves are particularly resistant versus enchantments... Besides, even though they have an entry in the Monster Manual, I don't think they can be targeted by Animal Empathy...

    Youre right. Either that, or he twisted his neck and scarf around completely, in which case... OUCH!

    That actually does sound like a very efficient course of action... why am I thinking that's not how things will work out?

    He's probably a half-owl or something. If there's owlbears, why not owlmen.

    I've seen video of cats chasing bears away. So this isn't entirely out of line.

    Still, I hope she kept the receipt on that tiger.

    The tiger looked at the cat and saw a true killer. It immediately knew its place.

    Awesome strip.

    Nice strip, but I think the gold goes to Belkar about his NPC filler quip.

    Now I get to worry about how the secret meeting of clerics will go sideways when the OoTS shows up.
