    Nothing like a horde of ninjas kicking your spouse in the face to bring about the pregnant mood swing in all it's incomprehensible horror. Even Cthulhu &#*$s himself at the thought.

    "If you're pregnant, or think you may become pregnant, please consult your physician or cleric before taking Heroism Potions(R)."

    ...'cause if Kazumi thought the baby could kick before, just wait till that potion crosses the placental barrier. Ow!

    Guess Diago just sucks falling into the 'men married to pregnant wives are useless' trope, huh?

    Still, g
    Gotta say that is one badass pregnant mother. Moral of the story for all you Mooks out there? You do not put the life of a child in mortal danger within proximity of the mother - and, by extension, the life of the mother if she is pregnant. She will go berserk.

    Edit: Screw the criticism. This scene would be impossible without Diago getting KO'ed.

    The Class and Level people are gonna love this one. Or be really frustrated.. Ok. 8 ninja were visible in the previous comic. If they're all coming in, Kazumi has 4 more to go before Conservation of Ninjitsu really kicks in.

    Another awesome comic, if I may say so.

    Who else is thinking Kill Bill here?

    But I can definitely say that the Belkster is gonna be plenty irked by his lack of participation in the bloodbath to follow.

    I don't know that the next few strips will be appropriate for under-aged viewers.

    Haha "baby-making, life-taking..."

    I wonder if potions affect the baby. What if the kid got a little super-strength effect like Obelix? Expectant mothers should be more wary of what special mystical potions they imbibe.

    I'm sure we'll see this as an example of Mama Bear or/and Crowning Moment of Awesome on TVTropes.org. In roughly 2-3 days, top.

    Can we all agree that this is a Crowning Moment of Awesome? And does this make her an Action Mom, or a Mama Bear, or both?

    Either way, Giant, keep up the good work.

    I'm still trying to figure out how you can knock someone out with one kick in 3e. In 4e, it's easy (Level 9 Rogue Daily, "Knockout"), but I don't know a way to do it in 3e without either magic or an impractical amount of subdual damage. Maybe there's something in the ToB that I'm not remembering. Either way, that's one high level ninja. (Of course, it's hard to tell whether he's still alive or Kazumi's killed him--he's not the first one she kills, I think, but they do all look alike.)

    In hindsight, Action Mom fits better. She was able to kick ass before, and Mama Bear is for meek characters who become kickass when their child is threatened.

    Two days? I'm working on it now.
    Yeah, s' why I said two days tops.

    An unarmed attack, that is also a Sneak Attack, that does more nonlethal damage than the target has hit points. What's so complicated about that?
    Congratulations, you can link to TV Tropes. This does not mean you have special insight into the storytelling process, much less the author's mind. Stories don't need to fit into neat boxes, you know.

    Her hubby got defeated way too easily though. Is it because he was caught flat-footed (pun intended)?

    Good. Kazumi will finally be able to catch up with all the XP Daigo has been gaining while fighting orcs and giant devils. It's a sad thing when someone in a couple gets higher than the other in level. It makes adventuring together that much more difficult, and that's just the start of a dysfunctional family.

    I wonder what was in that potion. Rage, maybe?

    Biggest problem? A character with enough levels to have sufficiently high Sneak Attack/Sudden Strike to do that will also be tough enough that there should be no way for Kazumi to one-shot him back. Like I said, the Class and Level Geekery people are either going to love this one or be massively frustrated by it.
