Chapter 26: Fly, You Fowls!

See, they want to fly! It’s not animal abuse! 😛
(Nobody tell them they just end up in the graveyard right down the hill…)

Words of the Stripper:
I originally planned to upload this in time for Hobnanigans, but ended up being stuck for two weeks… much apologies!
At least it’s still the Month of the Chicken, so bok bok bakawk!

Chapter 25: Pipe-weed Smoke-off

What is your favourite pipe-weed?
Gotta love fancy ones like Sweet Galenas (sailing ship that Gandalf floated in the movie), but my usual go-to pipe-weed is Old Toby! ♡

Featured pipe-weed in the order of appearance:

  • Longbottom Leaf (single ring)
  • Old Toby (heart ring)
  • Roper’s Twist (spiraling line)
  • Shire Sweet-leaf (butterflies)
  • Dragon’s Breath (flying dragon breathing fire)

If anybody needs any pipe-weed, please let Carica know and she’ll grab you a barrel or two from Saruman’s stash! 😉

Words of the Stripper:
I accidentally deleted part of the comic & overwrote, so had to redraw a lot of it! >_<
Gotta remember to save often!

Also, excessive smoking can be bad for your health in real life.
Please be nice to your and your loved ones’ lungs!

Chapter 24: Vendor Waste Not

Some of you may find this familiar as I’ve actually told this horror story at Ales & Tales last year or so. I already had the idea for this comic then too, but it was taking so long that I just ended up telling it first.

Now, like the Hornblower story, this is just a conjecture. It may or may not be the truth. Though it does make me wonder if this is why the travelling rations really got discontinued… 😛

Words of the Stripper:
The bulletin board may look the same as chapter 21, but it’s actually updated with some of the older papers ripped, which unfortunately doesn’t show under the poster for the upcoming Weatherstock because it’s too big… darnit. It looked very natural too! There’s also an inquiry for the Secret Pie Vault, and the Aegthil wanted poster has been vandalized. (I wonder who drew a moustache and wrote ‘Fool’ on it… XD)

Chapter 23: Firework Misdirection

This actually happened once during the Anniversary Festival.
Well, the fireworks announcer wasn’t exactly THAT elaborate, but he gave instructions for the same colour several times in a row that I actually grew complacent and almost messed it up when he finally switched!
Gotta pay attention!

Chapter 22: Do Not Follow the Signs

Have you been wondering just what kind of confusing signs you’ve been posting in the hedge maze? Now you can finally read them!

It is not recommended to follow the directions.
It’s always the OTHER left, isn’t it?!

Words of the Stripper:
Did you catch the references for Time Warp from Rocky Horror Picture Show & Monopoly Jail card? 😉

Chapter 21: Looting for Tasks

Have you imagined what cutting up various animal parts, collecting broken gears and scooping up those filthy oozy gooey stuff would be like in real life?

Thank Eru for auto-loot!

If you want a clear view of whatever is written on the task bulletin board, check here.
If you don’t remember what happened with the Hornblower pies, check here.

No actual animals were harmed during making of this comic.
That brigand deserved it though.
