Chapter 13: Chickening Around – Part 2

Aaaand here’s the exciting conclusion of Chickening Around, where Carica’s suffering continues! Oh, the perils of a defenseless chicken!
Save the chicken. Eat pigs instead. (Wait, what?)
Play this video for the added dramatic flair on the last panel. XD

The resemblance of the cook on the 4th panel to a certain chef in Forochel region is completely intentional coincidental.

Chapter 12: Chickening Around – Part 1

The chicken instance quests at Sandson’s Farm are surreal! I have no idea what kind of funny magic Billina is using to turn me into a chicken. She must be some sort of chicken wizard- er, gizzard…?

Words of the Stripper:
Fun fact: Birds in general has a more advanced colour receptor than humans, and they can see RGB plus UV! Thus the simulated UV-enhanced view on panel 6 and 7.
That’s right, we don’t just chicken around. We are also educational!

Also, yes, this is a 2-part story. Look out for part 2 in two weeks! 😉

Chapter 10: Hornblower’s Secret

(In case it was not clear: She’s simply scraping the bad berries off the old pie and filling it back with new berries, reusing the pie crust.)

Disclaimer: This is only a speculation. She may as well be supplying them to the bounders as a bio weapon against the Dourhands for all I know.

Seriously though, WHY does she insist that we deliver all of them back to her? It can’t be to save her reputation, because I already tell them “Holly gave you a death pie, so please return it” before picking them up anyway.

Chapter 9: Hungry Hungry Hobbit

I did try to warn him, y’know…
What was in Hornblower’s pies? They must’ve been really bad berries!
Just when you thought delivering those pies and mail separately was a nuisance…
Here comes hardcore difficulty: Delivering pies by mail!

Words of the Stripper:
Appropriate Sound effect for the 2nd panel!

All the hobbit clothes are pretty accurate as seen in-game. In fact, I spent way too much time getting the details down. It was fun getting to know them though.
I still want their clothes for myself. Why do they get to dress better than me?!

Hobbit Carica

Hello everyone! Today is not a comic update day, but since there were so much traffic coming in thanks to Chickening Around being featured on this week’s LOTRO Beacon: Issue 62, I wanted to draw something to welcome the new readers.
So, here is a sort-of portrait of hobbit Carica.

She ended up looking a little different from how she looks in game because of the eye & nose shape but otherwise it’s pretty much how I imagine her to be. Hehe

Gotta love the feeling of homeliness in the Shire!
