    Default Cursed of Course II: The Second Thread

    CURSED, OF COURSE
    A Fantasy Comic by Shoreward


    Pellan wants to be a warrior, with all the rescuing, fighting, and celebrating that implies. Unfortunately, there's a slight problem…

    This comic follows in Pellan's journey to cure a curse, and all the people who come to help – or hinder – that effort.

    The Update Schedule:
    I try to update once a week, but schedule slip due to other projects and obligations often causes me to miss a week. I'll never skip two in a row without a better reason. But hey, at least I'm honest about it, right?

    The first thread hit page fifty, so here's the new one. I still can't believe I've been doing this long enough to need it. Has it really been years?

    Almost didn't notice this thread went up, since it dropped off the front page before I had a chance to make a new comic! Either way -- woah, second thread!

    Not safe?

    Well, that's relative, isn't it?
    On the upside there aren't people trying to poke you with pointy sticks.
    The weather's not so hot, but at least there's shelter.
    The mountain allegedly being haunted might be a problem though.
    So... Should have stuck with the guard, I guess.

    I mean, it makes sense.
    Pellan needs a stabby thing to do stabby things.
    So giving him one for this mission is pure self interest.
    Indulging Cat's curiosity however is pure annoyance, so avoiding her makes sense.

    I wonder what Cat even did. I wonder why her presence was even necessary, though I'm sure we'll find out soon enough. A storm-touched witness?

    Looks like this is not exactly what poor Isan signed up for. (But hey, with Cat present, at least we'll probably get to learn what he and Tavi are (i.e. she'll either know or nag it out of him).)

    I assumed shock.

    Like "what the hell did I sign up for?"

    These people are about to go into a deadly frozen wasteland and they're having an argument over whether they need armor and clothes.

    To be honest, Bortha never seemed to be a bad man. Can't say I'm surprised.
