Asanthai says:

hehe... yay AngloSaxon runes!

Do not open gates for:
-salesdwarves
-missionaries
-vampires
-invading armies

:-)

hkmaly says:

Are there really any vampires on World That Is or is it only myth ?

Osk says:

it's got pixies and unicorns and furies, so why not a vampire

Pulsy says:

Feiht forgot she could just open the gate herself again :D Also i love the sea horse, you can just see it thinking "wtf?" XD

Jeremiah says:

Is Feiht going to obey the rules? She shouldn't. Rules are boring.

Nebra Reppalk says:

Well, when you have an army of clones, not everyone gets hurt. Just the few of us that happen to be Jedi...

lylia123 says:

well some of the clones get hurt. depending on what movie it is you're watching.

Ladyfox7oaks says:

I love the map on the back of the door....

*Skittles* says:

Aww, what's wrong with vampires? ;)

hkmaly says:

Osk: Next question will be "can elf be turned into vampire ?" - many authors are trying to avoid this question.

hkmaly says:

*Skittles*: Vampires sucks. Literally :-).

Inbetween says:

Wait, nebra, are you a jedi/dwarf/royal...or are you hiding somthing more from us...

Nebra Reppalk says:

Inbetween: Well, it's a little complicated

Nebra Reppalk is just one of many identities I assume. The Reppalk clan is the clan of clerics/rulers that lead the clans of the Iron Wall. The fact that this king has the name Nebra is a happy coincidence...sort of...I think...

Meanwhile, there are a variety of other things that I do, including being a Jedi. Well, sort of. There is the dark lord "Darth Regens" identity that I assume from time to time, but people who know me say there's no way I could be evil.

Essentially, the individual behind Nebra is behind several other identities as well. I'm a busy man.

junebug says:

Stupid rules.
Feiht is right about the clone thing, though.

Chariset says:

I like how the lighting shows that the door isn't quite closed.

Skreyola says:

It looks like Ayne might have been / be leaving a trail of blood. It will be interesting to see how that plays out.

Dark Dragon says:

What about if you're talking about the Star Wars books? The last panel goes on the list of things to be made into posters. :)

LDSKid says:

I take offense at the no missionary bit. We're much better than the other 3 included there. The ranking it should be for badness is salesdwarfs, invading armies, vampires, then missionaries.

Narian Goldword says:

Ooh, vampires!
On the answer to: "Can elves be turned into vampires?" question, you will soon find out! (I think.) I'm writing something where this elf lady is captured by vampires and eventually becomes one of them. Willingly.
I like rooting for villains! It's fun!!!!!!

Narian Goldword says:

Oh, btw, Ayne's skin is looking bluer every panel. Yay for blue!
Hands up who roots for villains too!

hkmaly says:

Are you suggesting all vampires are villians ? That's discrimination !

Narian Goldword says:

They suck blood.
From living people.
Um, unless you're homicidal, yeah. The only book in which they aren't is the Cirque du Freak books-which were extremely good, but a definite minority.

Osk says:

dark jewels, by anne Bishop, though the vampires are called guardians. The high lord of hell is a guardian there. called Seatan Deamon SaDiablo. nice man actualy. got an anger problem though

Jynx says:

LDSKid: Yo, fellow LDS person. Just remember--though OUR missionaries aren't usually that bad, others can be. After all, there are missionary jokes for a reason :-)

Nebra Reppalk says:

And those of us who aren't big on the whole God thing are a little fearful of missionaries.

Another problem I have to deal with: I think I'm allergic to garlic. Of course, everyone assumes that I'm a vampire because of that, but to be perfectly honest I'd probably be more likely to be a lycanthrope.

Morg-Fire says:

missionary jokes lol. doesn't matter what religion your from.. they are all hilarious

Dark Dragon says:

Nebra, why do you think you might really be a lichen? (Please don't throw anything sharp at me!) Besides, all fantasy-type humanoids are nifty!

Narian Goldword says:

Oh, and the Twilight-New Moon-Eclipse vampire series has a family of good vampires, although the overall majority are bad.
But for anyone who asks, I prefer lycanthropes (whee! it's fun to use big words!) over vampires.

Nebra Reppalk says:

Dark Dragon: Well, it's more on a personal level. I just feel more like I lycanthrope than a vampire. I just feel like I'd be more likely to be someone that can turn into a bear or something than a bloodsucker.

hkmaly says:

Narian Goldword: In Sapkowski's Saga, vampires don't need to suck blood. In Pratchett's Discworld, vampires don't need to suck blood. In Rice's Interview with the Vampire, vampires don't need to suck human blood. In Blade, there is a chemical which can allow vampires to not need blood. And so on and so on ... also, there are vampires who only suck villians (like gangsters), so they can be the good ones too ...

Also, there is another posibility besides beeing homicidal to not care about vampires killing peoples: not be human :-)

hkmaly says:

Also, even vampires which must drink human blood don't need to kill anyone. There are blood banks, for example.

Nebra Reppalk says:

Like Alucard from Hellsing who drinks medical blood.

Well, maybe he's a bad example considering he goes psycho later on...

Jynx says:

There are tons of vampires that don't go along with the hyped-up Hollywood version. After all, the whole sun-burns-us! thing can be traced back to a German movie made in the beginning of the century. (I forgot the title, if anyone really cares I can look it up). However, the more traditional vampires have always been rather...moral-less? What's the word?

Jynx says:

...And sorry to get all Biology on you people, but I'm not sure normal human-blood drinking vampires would be able to suck animal blood. Animal blood is different from human blood, and so I think that you'd have to stick with one or the other, ne?

hkmaly says:

Nebra: "later on" ? Alucard is under some sort of spell ("control art restriction system", controlled by Sir Integral Fairbrook Wingates Hellsing). I think the "psycho" is his normal behaviour, but the spell is keeping him more "normal".

Jynx: the film was "Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror" (1922). And humans are just one of animals, from biological point of view - I never heard of any special difference between human and for example chimpanzee blood (of course, it would not be compatible group for transfusions, but I never saw vampire doing this sort of test :-)).

Nebra Reppalk says:

hkmaly: I'm referring to how in the first volume he seems relatively sane, whereas by the third volume he's gone on at least two berserker rampages.

Narian Goldword says:

hkmaly: Really? Ooh! But I still prefer werewolves... just 'cause I can. I'm weird like that. (whee!)
Also, in Discworld, vampires can quit blood, true-but they have to replace it with some other obsession or addiction. Two examples are coffee and photography.
Okay, so those aren't too destructive. Except coffee. And sugar! Sugar sugar sugar sugar! Yaay!

Chariset says:

What I love about Feiht is that even when she's talking nonsense, it sorta does make sense from a warped, off-center pixie point of view

Dark Dragon says:

Wait...so there could be a vampire addicted to caffiene???? SIGN ME UP PLEASE!

hkmaly says:

Nebra: "Volume" ? Ok, you know him better.

Narian: Actually, on Discworld the reality is so thin almost anything is possible ...

Narian Goldword says:

hkmaly: yep! I think Discworld exists mainly for the purpose of making fun of people, so pretty much anything can be added, in Ankh-Morpork or Lancre or whatever. YAAAY! LANCRE!!!
Dark Dragon: Yep!!! Which means they're relatively normal until they run out of coffee, at which point they have hallucinations and begin to crave blood again. However, the thing about Discworldian vampires is that they project their hallucinations on others, which can lead an entire town to believe that Bob is stalking them. (Not a real example, but close to what happened in Monstrous Regiment.

Osk says:

yup
"charly is tracking us"
who is charly?
üh, i dont know"

and yes, discworld only exists to poke fun at what we think of as the real world

hkmaly says:

Still, discworld is making much more sense that many books which are supposed to be serious.

? says:

I

? says:

I love how she says, "An entire army! Hurry!" And in comes a single, tiny pixie on a tiny, floating seahorse!!! XD =P

Elkian says:

Are you sure it's not:
'Neither rain nor snow nor gloom of night will stay these messengers about their duty. Please do not ask about...(I forget this bit) Mrs.Cake,
or armies of pixie puppets'
? ^^

no one says:

Watch out for robbers and any magic creature
