Like this comic? Why not comment on it?


Wow, just when I was about to go to bed!




Yay! Brilliant!


Whoa new page!

Soooo, geting the only wizard they know to help was not so bright idea? I will be very surprised if Ayne actually did the right think taking the pixies with her ...

On the other hand, last we saw Leaf he wasn't in SO bad position. Perhaps it will be better to not interrupt now ...






Dark, scary realm with scary monsters...

Lee of the Rogue Star:

Welcome back! I especially like the malevolent face in frame 2 and the tentacle between the first and fourth frame.


SQUEEE!!! NEW COMIC!!!!! I hope that means things are calming down a bit for you and your family Mithandir. Hugs!


Careful with those gestures lest a void monster be given lunch...


haha I LOVE Malv's approach here.


Um. Yeah. Maybe I'm stating the obvious here, but plottwist/charactertwist combined with the timing after such an absence.. I'm going to assume for at least a day that this isn't the actual dialogue for this episode.

Either way, welcome back :)


They know you are here.


Glad to see you back!! Yeaaaah!!! Hope everything is going better. Love the colors, especially the face in panel 2! Great work.


Very glad to see a new comic. I do hope it's an indication that your lives are becoming less stressful and more relaxed, more - fun.
and WOW! fantastic use of the magnifier. The look on Ayne's face in the last panel, is worth the wait. Do carry on.


Wow! And I thought this was a good week when it was just Order of the Stick starting up again!

Lee's back and he's staying:

Hooray! Now if only there were some way to download the magnifier version! (Actually, there is a slightly involved way to... or am I saying too much...?)


NEWWWW COMIC!!!!!!!!!!!!


This is one of the best webcomics I have ever read, and you should make it into a book. It would help you (more income = more drawing time) and I would be happy to buy even with the free web version. Keep up the amazing work.


Guys look through the magnifying glass. It is pretty different.


Welcome back!!!


Use the Magnifier, check out Panel 2 right where the Wizard's voice bubble is. Very sinister.


Only just discovered the magnifier - very cool!


Yay, you're back! :) And with some preeetty creepy eldritch monster creatures too...

Lee's back and he's staying:

Oh, look out, more gibberish messages with spam links...


How did Ayne get her hand behind her shoulder with her elbow down?


Oh no! the elder fiends are breaking the fourth wall!

By the way, welcome back! We all were getting worried.


Here's hoping you guys are feeling well and everyone's happy and enjoying themselves! Really glad to see you back, hope to have an update on how life is treating you folks soon :)


accused you falsely / falsely accused you
It's a matter of preference.
Also - Yay! NEW PAGE

I think the glowy eyes in the second panel are definately scary


Update, yay!! Great use of the magnifier version, and i love the small tower in the back that is upside down xD I forgot how much fun it was spotting all the detail in these little pieces of art. So happy you guys are back! :D


Well this was plot twist and a half :D

Hope everything's going ok for you guys!


Ah, finally!


Is everything ok?


Looks like the weird cross posts are creeping back in. I've noticed these get cleaned out/up after a bit. I take that as a very strong indication that Mithandir and company are doing Ok. Just real busy and probably over scheduled, like the rest of us. I'll wait how ever long it takes for the next installment. This story is way too good to let it go.


I'm still checking in every once in a while!


I hope they are ok. I check back in hopes of an update. Even if it is them making a post saying how life is.


Not sure about "subscribing" it, but the RSS is currently empty, which may be problem for whatever you are trying to subscribe it with.


hk, if you mouse over their names you'll see a wide variety of url/addresses. I suspect most of them are bogus and the result of some spam'd cross posting from some other compromised site.


Beautifully drawn, but last news update was apparently almost a year ago? Is this comic "dead?"

Red Shadow:

No way of knowing. It's come back from long, long pauses in the past, so I keep checking in the hope that Alien and Mithrandir will surprise me again. But I don't think it's ever been a full year before.


Nah, it can't be dead, it's just little cryogenically preserved ... :) And remember that while last news update was almost year ago, last COMIC update was first April, so only four months ago. It's surprising: one would expect that posting news with some explanation is simpler that posting new comics.


What's up, the whole thing is going nicely here and ofcourse every one is sharing information, that's genuinely good,
keep up writing.


I know this website presents quality based articles and additional stuff, is there any other webb page which ofers uch

Excellent web site. Plenty of useful information here. I am
sending it to several buddies ans additionally sharing
in delicious. And naturally, thank you on your effort!


I know this website presents quality dependent articles or reviews and additional
material, is there any other web page which provides such things in quality?


Link exchange is nothing else but it is simply placing
the other person's web site link on your page at proper place and other person will
also do same in support of you.


Thanks for the good writeup. It in truth was once a amusement account it.
Glance complicated to more brought agreeable from you! However,
how can we keep in touch?


Hello, this weekend iss gookd for me,as this point in tume i am reading this
grat informative pzragraph here at my house.


Below are just a few examples of where cost segregation generates meaningful tax deductions.
Contribute the maximum you can to 401(k) or other tax saving plans so that
you get maximum tax exemption before the financial year ends.
Head of House hold is preferable over filing as single.


Great, here come de spam scum.


The middle note follows and that usually is made up a heavier or stronger small which may be
spicy or citrus and stays for an hour. As a variation, ask each person to bring someone else who is alone or single.
Make a list of friends you haven't contacted in months and years and send them a

It's very easy to find out any matter on net as compared to textbooks, as
I found this post at this website.


Notspam, yes it's a shame we can't figure out what site this junk is coming from and get them to clean up their act.


We're a group of volunteers and opening a new scheme in our
community. Your site offered us with valuable information to work on. You have done a formidable job and our entire community will
be thankful to you.


Thanks, I've recently been searching for information approximately this topic for a while and yours is the best I've
found out till now. However, what in regards to the conclusion? Are you positive in regards
to the source?


It's genuinely very difficult in this full of activity life to
listen news on Television, thus I only use world wide web for that purpose, and obtain the latest information.


There are literally hundreds of thousands of so-called SEO
gurus and service providers to ensure a high score for your
website in just a few months. You can also comment
on other related pages using an @ symbol and then the name of your page, and perhaps even ask or pay people
to share or like your page from theirs. Sadly this is not the
case and in actual fact can work against you.


Iceea: Why do you think knowing where the spam comes from would help us get rid of it?


hkmaly, just a hunch, they - the interlopers, seem to be having a, somewhat, coherent conversation which would indicate it comes from one site. Although I must admit the conversations seems to be on different topics so perhaps it's from multiple different sites. Some times sites are unaware they've been hacked and bringing it to their attention will remedy the problem. Sometimes not, alas. Or for the conspiracy theory this is the work one one individual or group who wish to disrupt this site for some reason or some kind of personal attack on our hosts. It would be a shame if that were the case. I sincerely hope that Mithandir's and Alien's and Rune's life is doing well and they will find the space to continue the story. I'll be here until the site goes away.


I am really delighted tto glance at this website posts
which carries tons of valuable data, thanks for providing such data.


Iceea: ... what coherent conversation?

Also, no. They don't need to come from one site to pretend coherent conversation. And they may easily come from botnet. I don't think this is directed attack.


hk, well the current bunch does seem to be unrelated but there was a bunch some time back when they were all talking about music stuff. But I suppose even those could have been unrelated. Bot net, hmm, a directed attack, hmm, I suppose it could also just be random trolling for sites with security holes in them. The stuff does get cleaned out every now and then. Whether that's our storytellers doing or people at the hosting service is unknown.


I hope they come back soon. I have left messages on their facebook, but alas, thus far, no replys. I know last time I did that, to tell them that I couldn't post because of their spam filter, they responded within the week. I don't want to keep dropping messages, I don't want to spam them, but I would like a hello, life is crazy, Rune is older, and the comic will be on hiatus for x time, or something to that effect.

Not that they owe it to me or anything, because they don't. Just common curtsy I suppose.


Woops, forgot to add my name to above post. That was not spam, that was made by me :)


IrishDrinker: Even "hello, life is crazy, Rune is older, and we have no idea when we will be able to return to the comic" would be good. Also, it's obviously not spam. It doesn't link to any site.


Can I just say what a relief to find someone that really understands
what they are talking about on the net. You certainly know how to
bring a problem to light and make it important.
A lot more people ought to read this and understand this side of the story.
I was surprised you aren't more popular since you
surely have the gift.


Howdy, There's no doubt that your web site could possibly be having
browser compatibility issues. When I look at your web site in Safari, it looks
fine however when opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues.
I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Other than that, wonderful site!


Very good post! We will be linking to this great article on our site.

Thus, when the HCG diet info was released today, I once more sharpened my pencil to take notes.
But first, here is a list of a few of the similarities:.
However, dieting with the use of the oil from coconuts definitely works because it provides you with nutrition.


Hi just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren't loading properly.
I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it
in two different browsers and both show the same results.


Speaking of spam...

Anyway, I am really worried. Does anyone have any idea as to what is going on? Falling completely out of contact for so long is never a good sign.


But I will keep coming back. Just in case.


Hurrah, that's what I was exploring for, what a stuff!
present here at this webpage, thanks admin of this web page.

nice day. Bye


The best part is you do not have to deny your sweet tooth using these quick
weight loss diets. When the time comes to purchase HCG the very first time, making the effort to look, to check, and also to research prices and shipping costs is needed.
Tacoma HCG weight loss has become the first choice
of many Physicians and individuals seeking permanent weight reduction.

Will there be a part 2?


Hello, after reading this remarkable article i am as well delighted to share my familiarity here with friends.


Awesome post.


I visited many web sites except the audio feature for audio songs present at
this website is really marvelous.


Interesting, the spam has changed slightly. Instead of names with bogus web address's we now have anonymous names with no web address. I wonder if that's an indication that who/whomever is doing this has read this site and noted the comments about where the spam could be coming from and has taken measures to further obfuscate their involvement. Hmm...

Rune sick so comic delayed

Rune suddenly got quite sick yesterday, with 39.6°C fevers (103.3°F) even after anti-fever medication and a lot of pain to one of his ears. We suspect the poor little boy has an ear infection but doctor will be able to tell for sure tomorrow. Either way, it means comic is delayed a bit, sorry.

Hey all,

Tomorrow (saturday), Alien, Rune and I will be at the Elf Fantasy Fair in Arcen.

Monday ... we should have a new comic up (I say should, because Rune was a bit ill today).

Update: Will be monday afternoon, with taking Rune to school, it's tricky to do updates in the morning.
