Dhur and Jaine accept their first bona fide quest and explore more of Ardris in the process.
I really like how this first panel came out ðŸ™‚

Geez, sometimes I wonder what kinds of ads Google will come up with for my site based off of the keywords on each page. On this one, we’re got “scratching himself”, which I hope will only show retailers for backscratchers. I bring it on myself, I know. As I write this, I am prepping for […]
Phew! After over 1300 miles of driving, I am now happy to report that I have arrived in North Texas, where I will be spending my Christmas Vacation with my extended Texas family. If I haven’t said so lately (and I don’t believe I have) Nate Piekos’ font site Blambot is a cartoonist’s best friend, […]
I have yet to figure out how to draw a spit take effectively. Still working that one out. Just FYI, on Friday there will be no update on account of the Christmas holiday. Hope it’s a great day for you all and I’ll see you all next Monday! Take care, and God bless us, every- […]
Hope you all had a good Christmas or whatever winter holiday you celebrate. Me and mine did, amid many relations from across Texas, some of whom hadn’t been in the same room in over 10 years or more. Now I have a Christmas present for you, albeit a little late: on January 13, 2010, MeatShield […]
Barely competent mages do, that’s who. Sorry this was a little late, folks – had a slip-up in scheduling my posts. By the way, there won’t be a cartoon on Friday (1/1/10) on account of its a holiday and I will be spending it with my family… in a minivan driving across the American Southwest […]
This is a not-too-subtle reference to this strip. You ever try to write one of those end-of-the-year/holiday letters and try to encapsulate your entire year in 4 paragraphs or so? Yeah, that’s what I’m dealing with in this blog post. ðŸ™‚ So, I’ll try to make this brief, as I am the King of Rambling […]
During my sojourn to foreign lands this recent holiday season (i.e. I went to Texas), the wife and I drove down to Dallas to meet up with the awesome Shanna, whose website link is right over yonder to the left there. Had a great lunch with her and we caught up a bit, she telling […]
I was reminded of Mos Def explaining to his partners in crime why he doesn’t go up against dogs in The Italian Job when I wrote this headline. I loved that movie - good brain twinkies, there. Although I actually launched it yesterday, today you can now find The Facebook Super Neat-o Page in the […]
Welcome to the very first all color MeatShield! As I had said in a previous post, I figured that it took just as much effort to choose the various greytones I was using as it would to go full color, so here we are! I hope you like it! On an unrelated note, yesterday my […]
Big boy words (not to be confused with Bob’s Big Boy, a restaurant chain fading into blessed memory.) For anyone who doesn’t have kids, you find yourself using a phrase similar to “use your big boy/girl words,” when dealing with a small child who would rather rely on the babytalk that got them through the […]
Here’s a look behind the scenes of MeatShield: I drew the first 40 strips on Bristol board paper with pen and ink, with one exception. I then scanned them in, lettered them on the computer (because years of practice have not yielded any improvement in my hand lettering) and that was that, ready to go. […]
Today, Dhur and Jaine interview potential party members. Here’s a fun little tidbit: I have no idea what the gender of the character in the last panel is. No clue. Is it a man in drag? Is it a dwarven woman? Is it a really really masculine woman? I drew it and I still have […]
Sometimes when I write, I hear the character’s voices in my head. Not in a crazy way (well, not entirely), but in a “gee, I wonder who would do the voice for this if it were animated?” kind of way. I wrote about this a while ago, but I just thought I’d let you know […]
I had a little too much fun with Carl’s “religion.” I kept making up things that he would spout off and dig himself even deeper into a hole, things like, “With the Second Coming of Jared, Master of Subs and Morrie’s right hand, we shall dine forever upon the grinder of goodness and… ummm… Yeah. […]
As I write this both I and one of my five-year old daughters are suffering from a nasty cold. I have blown my nose so many times, my sides hurt from the exertion. I’m gonna go get some hot tea and see to my young’uns. Take care, everybody!
Gee, looks like Carl’s not a cleric.
They say that the first year of a webcomic is like the first six months in the life of a restaurant, where you work all the kinks out and learn the rhythm of it al. When I put this particular strip together, I feel like I levelled up as a colorist, and I think it […]
There’s a vague reference for you. As I type this, it is a beautiful day in Southern California and my kids are playing outside. Life’s good. Hopefully, this week I can build my strip buffer back up again, as right now I only have 3 strips in the can and I had 40 at one […]
I know I usually have something funny or pithy to say in the attendant blog post to each comic, but today? I got nothin’. Sorry, folks. I’ll try to do better on Friday. I’ve been experimenting more with Photoshop for the strip, though, so I’m happy about that. ðŸ™‚ Oh, and by the way, just […]
As I’ve established in past posts, I’m the father of 5-year old twins, which means that I see roughly about 2 – 3 movies in an actual movie theater per year. So, I’ve been seeing the ads for that new film, The Lightning Thief, and thought “well, I might as well read the book since […]
Ahh, the man chair, I know it well. For those not familiar with the term, the “Man Chair” is the comfy chair near the changing rooms in clothing stores, where those who aren’t trying on 17 different outfits can be comfortable while they wait for those who are. Most of the time, the seats are […]
Welcome to all my new readers by way of Reddit, all 341 of you! I’m still learning about how to run a website and whatnot, so I’m a little late to the game with sites like Reddit and Digg, but… man! I posted my site at about 11:00am yesterday and two hours later over 255 […]
… Which is nowhere near as impressive as The Keep on the Borderlands, but there ya go. Over on the Meatshield Facebook Fan Page, I’ve posted a little article in the Discussions section on how I write MeatShield. Go check it out! ~Rob
We’ve all had these conversations – you suddenly meet someone you used to know that you’ve lost touch with (former co-worker, really distant relative, etc.) and then engage in idle chitchat, wondering how long you should let the conversation go on and still be polite. I’m usually really bad at this, letting it go on […]
Hey, B.A. Barracus didn’t fly, Dhur doesn’t sail. Here in the Chambers household, we are dealing with viruses aplenty, which is just tons of fun. Really, you should try it. Just take one child, send them to school with a bunch of infected children who like to hug a lot, and watch the fun! It’s […]
Ahhh, the 80s’. You can always be counted on for blog post titles. Next week, we learn a bit about Dhur and his family and how a good half-orc boy could have gone so.. well, not wrong, really, just slightly misguided. See you on Monday! ~Rob UPDATE: 2:54PM, PST – I just signed up for […]
Sorry for the brief hiatus, folks, but, man, did I need that. I feel a lot better now. I don’t know why it is, but the colds and flu that my kids bring home from school are nastier than anything I had as a kid. Dang.
Annnnnnd that’s cartoon #60. Thanks for sticking with me folks, I really appreciate it. I know I should have something pithy to say, but I think I’ll hold onto that until strip #100. Until then, folks, stay tuned! ~Rob
For those of you who have written me to ask about the site, yes, there is some sort of glitch in the navigation menu that prevents the “next” button from appearing on any posts after February 17th. I have no idea why. I’ve written to Micheal Sisk, the guy who created the WordPress plugin I […]
Separated at birth: Dhur and Bluto (John Belushi) from Animal House. I rest my case.
Still not sure why the navigation buttons aren’t working, but I have zero cash to pay anyone to fix it for me, so I’m kinda of out of luck. It’s weird, though – sometimes the “next” button will work, and sometimes it won’t. It’s not a case of something silly, like me not remembering to […]
I showed this strip to my wife before I scanned it in and started lettering and whatnot, and her response was “that’s typical Dhur: clueless.” I’d have to say that’s a fair assessment of everyone’s favorite half-orc. It’s not that Dhur doesn’t care about people or anything, he just kind of stumbles along through life, […]
As part of a continuing public service, we now bring you an entry from the Encyclopedia Ardrisia: The Imperial Protectorate of Gahl-Nabar Long ago, The Great Empire of Kunac ruled a vast continent across the Banir Ocean. The Empire kept expanding and expanding, eventually discovering the continent of Ardris. It was then that they established […]
Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everybody! As one of those lucky few to have more than a smattering of Irish blood in him, I plan to spend tonight drinking Guiness and playing D&D. What does D&D have to do with St. Patrick’s Day, you ask? Not a thing, I’m just a geek, that’s all. Beannachtam na […]
Better late than never, folks. Sorry about the lateness of this comic, but this is truthfully the first self-imposed deadline I’ve missed since last September. I’m not telling you all this as justification or anything, it’s more for me to give myself a little slack. See you next week! ~Rob
OK, I have a question for anyone out there that has a Twitter account: am I the only one that keeps getting these notices that say “FredSoAndSo1234″ is now following you on Twitter!” and the account in question has no one following them, has one tweet, and is following over 800 people? Oh, and they’ve […]
Mona knows something we don’t know. MWA HA HA HA!!! That’s it. Nothing pithy today, folks. See you on Friday! ~Rob
There is nothing so frightening, so nerve-wracking, so unnerving as 7 year-olds hopped up on about 3 pounds of sugar. Anyone who is a parent can back me up on this.
This past weekend, PAX East opened for the first time. This weekend I also nearly had to be taken to the emergency room due to extreme jealousy of every webcartoonist that went to this thing. People on their Twitter accounts talking about hanging out with Jonathan Coulton and Wil Wheaton, playing new video games and […]
Sorry this got posted so late, folks. If you’ve been following my Twitter feed, you know that my twin girls have been throwing up and just generally not feeling good. However, this morning? Man! Like night and day. “Daddy, we’re hungry!” Gobbled down everything I gave them and kept it down. Go figure. For those […]
Oh yeah, wasn’t there some sort of quest thing going on? Right. Let’s get back on track with that. Thanks for standing by while I took last week off and built up my buffer of prepared comics. As of today, I have four comics in the buffer, not counting today’s comic. I’ve been asked a […]
Behind every dim-witted barbarian warrior is his mom, keeping his ego in check and making him peanut butter sandwiches..
OK, this is a bit of an inside joke, so here’s a little peek inside the life of Rob Chambers, Gentleman Cartoonist and Father of Twins: When we give our daughters their weekly bath, whether they need it or not, we let them play with these soft, foam rubber-like letters in the tub until it’s […]
I am flying sort of solo for most of this week – Kathy is off to San Francisco today for a conference for 3 days and I’m not sure how to feel about it. On the one hand, it’ll be nice to spread across the bed and go to sleep whenever I want to, but […]
I have a tiny favor to ask of you guys. I’d like MeatShield to be seen by a whole mess o’ people. I’ve read that the best way to do that is by word of mouth, so I’d like to ask you all to take a moment out of your day and post to one […]
No, Dhur, this isn’t where they steer the boat. Speaking of which, I really like how the boat came out in panel 1. No, that guy isn’t Avatar: The Last Airbender, although I couldn’t fault you for thinking that, given his stature and color scheme. Tune in Monday to find out more! ~Rob
There’s acupressure and then there’s ACUPRESSURE. I wonder how something like this would play out in Dungeons & Dragons – some sort of weird skill challenge involving the Heal skill, maybe? Man, am I a dork. ðŸ™‚
Yes, his name is Ch’p (pronounced CHIP). He’s a monk. My daughter Emma named him ðŸ™‚ More about the W’shaa Monastery in an Encyclopedia Ardrisia entry sometime next week. If you’re a fan of webcomics, you’d do well to download and listen to the Tall Tale Radio podcast. Host Tom Racine interviews all manner of […]
I love Pandora. Not the planet from Avatar, but the website. Pandora is an offshoot of the Music Genome Project and matches you up with music determined by your tastes. If you like, say, Barenaked Ladies or Wilco, you can have Pandora program a channel for you with music that shares traits in common with […]
OK, I need some help. I have no clue what to call that critter that just climbed aboard The Marilith’s Tear. In D&D, I’d call him some form of kuo-toa, but the word “kuo-toa” is intellectual property of Wizards of the Coast, and I don’t feel like getting sued. Sooooo…. what should I call it? […]
OK, back to normalcy, or at least as close to it as I get. My mom is home and resting comfortably after having had an weird asthma/diabetic attack while en route to meet friends in South Carolina. Their bags made it all the way to South Carolina, though – their luggage had a better trip […]
UPDATE: the cartoon for Wednesday, May 12 will be delayed until this afternoon, as I had to deal with a broken Wacom tablet pen. I hope to have the new strip up by 3:00 PM, PST. Sorry for the delay folks – technical difficulties and all that. ~Rob You know, I think this is the […]
Got it online a little late, but here you go, strip #85! After 85 strips, we now have a trio – Dhur, Jaine and Ch’p. We’ll learn more as we go on about Ch’p and maybe a little about Jaine too. If you hadn’t read my Twitter feed (It’s right there to the left of […]
Wow, pushed this one to the last minute, but here we are, a new MeatShield for your viewing pleasure. I like how the harbor cobras came out. Not much going on. Hope you all have a great weekend! ~Rob
Phew! Thank you all so much for your patience with me and my various family issues. To all you kids out there wanting to make a webcomic, this last week of mine illustrates the usefulness of having a buffer of comics at the ready. OK, back to business as usual – see you on Friday!
And now, in a continuing service, we present an entry from the Encyclopedia Ardrisia… The W’Shaa In the remote mountains of Westhame lies a hidden monastery where enlightenment is sought. Enlightenment and really kickin’ cookie recipes. The Order of the W’Shaa make it their sacred quest to bring the light of knowledge, the healing power […]
That would be the Adventurer’s Association of Ardris, thank you very much. ðŸ˜‰ The updates may be a tad erratic this week and part of next as I and my family are in the process of moving to a new apartment. I’ll try to keep everyone updated in case of lateness, and I apologize in […]
The Great Migration of 2010 continues apace, and I should be at least 85% moved over to the new apartment by Monday. Speaking of which, I am going to be taking Monday off for Memorial Day. Think I’ll take a veteran out to lunch or something. Dad, you busy? So, no cartoon next Monday. Okie […]
UPDATE – 6/1/10 Moving to the new apartment has totally kicked my butt, messed up my back, and thrown my update schedule off beyond belief. Wednesday’s strip will be posted late – not sure exactly when. Stay tuned! Thanks, ~Rob Jaine’s question is almost verbatim one I had used in a Planescape game a VERY […]
If, like Ch’p, you’re wondering who “Carl” is, start here and finish here and you’ll get the gist of it. Right now, my new apartment is filled with boxes, which my wife and I (OK, mostly my wife) are slowing unpacking. The other day, she compared it to a weird sort of Christmas, where you […]
You ever wonder what kind of dentistry a world like Ardris or Midkemia or Middle-Earth would have? I imagine it would involve twigs, lye soap and lots of “mouthwash” (read: liquor). It’s thinking about weird things like this that kept me out of the really good schools. ðŸ˜‰ See you on Monday! ~Rob
Whew! Better late than never!
Wondering what Jaine’s talking about in the last panel? Go check this strip out. No witty comments today, folks! See you on Friday! ~Rob
And now, in a continuing service, an entry from the Encyclopedia Ardrisia. Vedris Located at the mouth of the Fiarna River, Vedris is a city where information is currency, knowledge has power, and being called a sidewinder is actually a compliment. The capitol of the nation of Mikiltuum, Vedris has a well deserved reputation as […]
One quick note about the scheduling of MeatShield: My daughters are now out of school for the summer, having finished up kindergarten. I want to keep MeatShield updated on M-W-F as usual, but the updates themselves will probably be later in the day (roughly 3:00PM or so, Pacific Time.) There is the possibility of having […]
Kidnapped by snake cultists. Y’know, just a typical day for these guys, right? In other news, my mom is doing better and is resting comfortably at home. For a while, they thought she was having mini-strokes, also known as Transient Ischemic Attacks, but it turns out that they think she’s having seizures of some sort. […]
At roughly 2:30 this morning, six years ago, I made a mad dash down I-35E to downtown Dallas as my wife was giving birth (she had already been hospitalized about a week previous) and met two of the most important people in my life. Today, my twin girls are turning six years old. Tomorrow will […]
Sorry for the missed cartoon on Monday, folks – My wife and I both had the summer cold from hell. Feeling much better now. By the way, THIS IS THE 100th MEATSHIELD CARTOON! Thanks for sticking with me, folks! ~Rob
Inside the Cartoonist’s Studio… When I first started drawing cartoons, I didn’t want to do comic strips. I wanted to draw comic books, and I had sketchbooks full of guys flying through the air with clenched fists or power blasts emanating from their hands. What I didn’t have at all were pictures of women. Like […]
Grr. Arrgh. There is one thing about doing a webcomic that just gives me fits, and that’s the actual website management part of it. The last time I made a webpage on my own, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), a key component of almost all webpages today, hadn’t been invented yet. Today, I upgraded my Content […]
Just a quick reminder – MeatShield is still updating on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, but the update time has been pushed back to 3:00PM Pacific time. I may get the comic posted earlier than that, but that is the deadline I’ve set for myself. See you on Friday afternoon! ~Rob
I don’t think Wolverine ever screamed like a little girl when Colossus hurled him at the bad guys in X-Men. Probably would have ruined the mood of the book. Will he make across the lake of fire? Come back on Monday to find out! DUN DUN DUNNNN! (cue 1950’s era organ cliffhanger music) ~Rob
The Uvula. An often overlooked body part. Also known as “that hangy-down part in your throat.” This science moment was brought to you by the Letter “Y” and the Number “Hella“. ~Rob
Just some random stuff from my life: D&D: Been running my D&D group through the Scales of War adventure path series of adventures, modified for the world of Eberron. Last night was the closest I’ve ever come to a TPK (Total Party Kill). A good time was had by all, and I felt like I […]
UPDATE: There will be no cartoon for Wednesday, June 14, as it has been an amazingly weird and hectic day for me. I will get the new cartoon up as soon as possible on Thursday and get the Friday one out on time as well. I hate doing this because this is the first time […]
Back in September of ’09, I decided that MeatShield would be a SFW strip – that is,” Safe For Work”, where if your boss saw you reading it or they combed your web usage logs at work, you wouldn’t have any uncomfortable questions to answer. Not necessarily a “family friendly” strip, but I decided that […]
Remember a week or so ago I was talking about how I seemed to have dodged the extreme heat bullet in Southern California while the rest of the country was cooking? Well, forget that noise – Today’s high is supposed to be 107 degrees F. Yikes. In two weeks, I have two things to look […]
Hey, who says the gods can’t go to Maui? —- A window into my world… My Daughter: “Hey, Daddy, why did the nose run?” Me, sensing a 6-year old’s attempt at joke-writing: “I don’t know, why did the nose run?” Daughter:”‘Cause he wanted to run into and go there! Isn’t that silly?!” Me: “Ummm. I […]
This weekend is the San Diego Comic Con, which I have been to a grand total of once, back in 1987. The only thing I remember from that weekend was that freaky outdoors shopping center near the convention, getting told by Cat Yronwode that my work sucked (I got the last laugh in that – […]
Yes, that is the FaceTime app that Vasra is using. See, in a fantasy world, the iPhone 4 works. *cough* Just kidding, anyone reading this in Cupertino! Speaking of Apple, in six days I will be XX years old. Not really expecting it, but if there’s anyone out there that wants to send me a […]
Just in case you might have forgotten, the punchline in this strip refers to this incident. I feel sorry for the poor guy – wonder if he still has a job at Apple?
Just in case anyone was feeling generous, my birthday is tomorrow. I’ve been told by family members that I’m hard to shop for, so here is a link to my Amazon Wish List. I am not saying that I’m so wonderful, go buy me stuff – I’m just throwing this out there, just in case. […]
Whew! Better late than never, folks! Here’s Monday’s cartoon, only 1 1/2 hours late. Sorry about that. See you on Wednesday!
“Glowy Stick.” Gotta love Dhur and his command of language. ðŸ™‚
Ahhh, it’s almost over, folks. By that, I mean, summer vacation is almost over and my twin girls start first grade next Thursday! Yay! You know that ad for Office Depot, where the dad is dancing in the aisles, buying school supplies for his two kids, who’re just shuffling their feet, while that Christmas song […]
Happy Monday to you all! I’m looking at revamping this site a bit, as with more readers come more people that, as wonderful as they are, don’t have the time to go back through 114 or so comics – Heck, I plead guilty to that at times. Don’t know when this will be done, so […]
I had mentioned it in an earlier blog post (at least I think I did) but I want to change the look of the website and organize it a lot better. It’s not fair to expect anyone to slog through 120 cartoons just to figure out what I’m talking about. I want to make it […]
I barely survived the first day of school for my daughters. They were both entering first grade and I figured, “hey, great, I’ll have time to myself in the mornings again!” I forgot one little detail: The energy levels of two over-excited 6 year olds going back to school. Whatever time I got to myself […]
Yes, all this time, Dhur has had no idea that Jaine has elven blood in her. Yes, I also often wonder how he survived to adulthood. See you on Wednesday with a bonus: a new entry from the Encyclopedia Ardrisia! ~Rob
And now, in a continuing service, an entry from the Encyclopedia Ardrisia. Val’Dhar The elves of Val’Dhar maintain that theirs was the first truly civilized land on Ardris, preceding the human barbarians and vicious dwarves and others. The fact that historical records show that there were already well developed societies on the west coast of […]
Just a quick note about the site: over this weekend I will (hopefully) be switching over to using Comicpress for my website instead of Webcomic + Inkblot, as noted waaaaay at the very bottom of the page. My primary motivator for this is the developer deciding to go on indefinite hiatus from working on it […]
What do you guys think of the reworked logo? See you all on Wednesday! ~Rob
Well, according to the emails I’ve received, the archive problem is persisting. Apparently, I need to replace the theme I’m using with the most up-to-date version of Inkblot, version #3. This means, that over the next week or so, you may find the site in disarray. I apologize for this ahead of time. Wish me […]
I just realized with today’s post that, in the world of Ardris, the Elvish language likes to use -issa and -lassa in their words. Didn’t realize that when I came up with Jaine’s title. Huh. See you all on Monday! ~Rob
Ah! Blessed relief! The heatwave in Southern California is over! For now, anyways. OK. There’s this event that I want to go to called The New England Webcomics Weekend in western Massachusetts. It’s a two-day kind of seminar/workshop/networking thing for cartoonists that publish their work solely on the web. The very first one was last […]
My exile is almost over. My wife is on her way home today from a 4-night business trip. Mind you, I’m a stay-at-home dad, so me watching the kids all day and night is just basically like working overtime, so it’s no problem. However, it’s working overtime at a job where you get to watch […]
Just a quick reminder: there will be no new comic strip on Monday, September 6th, on account of Labor Day and I want to spend it with my family and my visiting relatives from Texas. See you on Wednesday and have a Happy Labor Day! ~Rob
Not sure what the big deal is? Well, then, here is an encore excerpt from the Encyclopedia Ardrisia… The W’Shaa In the remote mountains of Westhame lies a hidden monastery where enlightenment is sought. Enlightenment and really kickin’ cookie recipes. The Order of the W’Shaa make it their sacred quest to bring the light of […]
Although this post is a day late (darn that calendar!), let me make the following announcement: MEATSHIELD IS NOW ONE YEAR OLD! On September 9th, 2009, I staggered my way into the webcomics scene with a big dumb half-orc who took up swinging an axe instead of welding and it’s been a great ride since. […]
I should be getting the archive problem fixed shortly, folks. Hang in there. ðŸ™‚ Take care, ~Rob
Experimenting with a new color palette for the strip. Thought Jaine looked a little washed-out. INSIDE THE CARTOONIST’S STUDIO… Last month, I started doing “warm-up” sketches before sitting down to draw a strip. It’s kind of like an athlete stretching before competition. Anyway, two sketches I did somewhat recently came out pretty good, if I […]
C’mon, you guys didn’t think getting rid of Jonus was going to be that easy, did you? ðŸ˜‰ See you on Monday! ~Rob P.S. A fix to the archiving problem is in sight! Stay tuned… or whatever the rough internet equivalent for that outdated saying is. You know what I mean.
Man, I pushed the deadline today – just made it. For new readers, I have a self-imposed deadline of 3:30PM PST. It’s 3:24 as I write this. Yay me! See you on Wednesday! ~Rob UPDATE: Just found out that the strip did not post, for some reason. Not sure why. I have re-published it to […]
Still working out the kinks on the site – so far, the archiving looks good, it’s just that the blog posts are being shunted down here. Not sure how to fix it. Stay tuned. UPDATE: OK, the archiving still seems to be buggy. Dang it! EVEN FURTHER UPDATE: There! That fixed it! Thanks, Amanda! Hopefully, […]
I’m sorry for the lateness of today’s strip – I really really really really want a new computer. One that doesn’t feel like it has a gerbil on a wheel providing computing power. I tried doing today’s strip completely on the computer and it took FOREVER! Whew. OK, I’m out of here. Have a great […]
Whew! Just made it to deadline today! Yay me!
Enter King Franz of Westhame. Ta-dah! ON FRIDAY: a new entry from the Encyclopedia Ardrisia: Westhame! See you Friday! ~Rob
And now, in a continuing service, an entry from the Encyclopedia Ardrisia. Westhame Westhame is one of the largest and most ethnically diverse countries on the continent of Ardris. Westhame was discovered over 450 years ago by a ragtag band of explorers and adventurers from the area that would later become the Imperial Protectorate of […]
Yep. You don’t mess with the King. He’ll sic Red and the rest of the Memphis Mafia on you and… whoops. Wait. Wrong King. Same fashion sense,though ðŸ˜‰ I really like how this came out, especially the close-up on King Franz.
OK, that’ll be the first and only time I’ll use the LOLCat “I can haz…” line. Just seemed to work for today’s strip. Promise and cross my heart. Hmm, I wonder what this new development will mean for our heroes? No, seriously, I wonder. I really need to write farther ahead…. ðŸ˜‰ Just kidding, it’s […]
Each time I write Jaine translating for Dhur, I think of that bit in Airplane!: “Oh, Stewardess? I speak Jive.” Even though a lot of that film’s jokes are now dated, that one more or less stands up today. I am really pleased with how the Inn of the Moaning Lungfish came out. Why Moaning […]
