I blew this page up as big as I could, and it still looks like the zombie pony is saying "...graains...."
which I suppose is only reasonable...

I'm pretty sure it's "groo" or "grao," but I like your version better. :)

I laughed out loud at Sev's last two lines there. Aaaaa, best adventure, coming up!

Jordan is in no position to relay what Severant is saying to her, unless he knows sign language.

Sure he can, she can read lips. ^^ That's why Sev asked her why she was asking him questions when she 'couldn't see him'. She can't see his mouth when she's on top of his head.

Which might be more helpful if Jonan could use his lips!

Oh, DUH! I feel dense. XD IIII guess he could write things down for her...?

If nothing else, it's going to be an interesting trip. Particularly in terms of communication.

So are they gonna meet a blind person next or is sev gonna go blind? seriously I'm getting a "Hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil" vibe from this comic.
posted at 11:28am on December 11th, 2012
Ahahahahahaha oh man you're right!
instead I guess it's "hear no evil, speak no evil, touch no evil"
which is probably still a good rule to abide by, let's be honest

Okay, between this page and the vote incentive, this is probably one of the funniest things you've written so far (or rather, shared with us so far; only you know all of what you've written). Just... Sev and Jonan somehow carrying out a dialogue when only one can talk, and the other is reduced to muffled grunts and meaningful silences.
Also Jonan secretly being actually kind of nice. At times. Sort of. Or at least feeling obligated to nice gestures.

Ahahahaha thanks! xD I am always way too entertained by these two trying to hold a conversation of any kind.

Yaaaaay! I KNEW Jonan wasn't such a bad guy. ^^ He's just a completely and total grouch, it's totally not the same thing. And I love that he just proved how special that pony is to him by bringing it along when he totally didn't need to and it probably won't even be helpful (except, of course, it will, because the funny/adorable animal companion always gets a chance to save the lives of the entire party at SOME point). The conversation in the vote incentive is possibly my favorite yet, except that's hard to say for sure because your vote incentives are usually hilarious. =Dd Ugh, poor Sev, though; he's gonna be half dead when they get to where they're going, flying the entire night with three beings on his back after getting no sleep.
And you just KNOW that last ellipse of Jonan's is him thinking, "What have I gotten myself into."
Haha I just realized Kirby is carrying his stuff. Loveable loyal undead packpony ftw!

Ahahaha, thank you!
Of course the zombie pony will be helpful; it's carrying his stuff! Seriously, look at Jonan. Do you think he can carry anything lighter than like..... a large book for any length of time? xD
Hahahaha, your translation of Jonan's last ellipsis is probably not far off.
posted at 8:38pm on December 12th, 2012
....Point. XD; Jonan does not radiate an aura of incredible physical aptitude. But you know it's just an excuse so he can keep his loveable pet pony with him. You KNOW.

Oh my goodness is the zombie pony legit named "Kirby"? Because of the D&D necromancer with the zombie horse named "Kerberos" and following shenanigans?!
Because that would be awesome.
And obviously, I am a fan of Shazzbaa's other stuff.

If the pony has a name, no one in the comic has mentioned it yet! To be fair, though, the only person who would know if it has a name or not can't really say.
But the necromancer I play in my current D&D game was actually originally inspired by Jonan! I thought he would be fun to turn into a D&D character back when I was still developing this story (which is why they look so darn similar).

Tareth's expression in panel five is FANTASTIC. I would almost certainly make the same face in that situation. But less adorably. Because I'm not Tareth.
I was seriously laughing at the vote incentive. The pony totally thinks it's a good idea, Jonan! What could possibly go wrong?
posted at 2:55pm on December 11th, 2012
Oh gosh, thank you! It is admittedly difficult to be as adorable as Tareth. I don't think I could manage.

kek, Sev goes from "I am not carrying your weird dead pony" to deciding that "groo?" means it agrees with his idea within a couple hours XD
posted at 7:37pm on December 12th, 2012
The pony is clearly quite the charmer.

Just occurred to me how convenient and lucky it is that Sev still has wings in dragon form and not tentacles. It's good that the miscast only applies to one pair of limbs.
posted at 5:25am on December 17th, 2012
That would be pretty weird unless he had messed up wings when he originally miscast! It didn't give him tentacle legs, after all. xD
(Fun fact: In the first drafts of his design, Sev had messed up wings as well! I dropped them because they were super annoying to draw. )

I'm practically holding my breath for the inevitable "A deaf girl, a mute, and a guy with tentacle-hands walk into a bar" moment.
