    My name is a handle I have ironically used for 2 years before finding this comic.

    Just read it all in one sitting, suprised to find a new strip go up this very night! Nice. I love the writing, it’s very whimsical, and yet down to earth. It’s like a fairytale or a truely ancient legend and I loved the interspersed mythologies combined with the annoyed agnosticism of the Wombats.

    Now we only require Dwarves.

    Recently found this comic and I have to say i have loved every single page of it. Im sad to the see the end of the archives. Now i have to find something else to do. Keep up the awesome work

    It never occurred to me that manifesting was a labor-intensive activity…

    Love the direction this is going.

  4. NeolithicE says:

    One would wonder who exactly fatigue would manifest in a … er, manifestation. I like how the two automatically offer up their tribes/bosses assistance. xD

  5. Wombat32 says:

    always practical, those ghost wombats…

    **snicker** Man, I can just hear them:

    Hegi: “That’s a LAY-line. The monastery lies along the path of a hghly powerful LAYLINE.”
    Helix: “Faultline, layline, whatever. Listen, so long as it doesn’t make the foundations structurally unsound–”
    Digger: “………………”

  7. Terry says:

    Fault or ley, I’m absolutely stunned Helix would be willing to be set up in some place over ANY kind of instability.

    I kind of <3 our head-shorn and hunter friends for trying to make the best of this.

  8. Wolf says:

    Helix doesn’t have to spend his after-life there, but even spending time in such a magic-filled place ‘prolly makes his fur itch.

  9. Hawk says:

    I just find it hilarious that the dead wombat is exhausted. Ghost or not, it still tickles my funny bone. Also the “youngsters” bit. Reminds me of my grandparents in a testy mood!

  10. Jassius says:

    Digger would better keep a distance in case of deicide by the hyena tribe.

    Killing a hyena ancessor god is likely to end up in a great milennary liver eating feast to honour him and give his name back or something. And given the size of that liver this could take a while too much for her o_O

    Heed the old and grumpy!

  12. Kayru says:

    I couldn’t imagine being dead could make a person tired. Didn’t think manifesting would take energy… didn’t know dead people had energy. Shows how much I don’t know.

  13. Tindi says:

    Right. Jhalm listening to someone. Love to see THAT happening.

  14. Lachesis says:

    truthfully, i think it’s yet again an example of the basic principle of wombat pragmatism. Helix may or may not tire from manifesting, but i’m sure he’s still aware enough to know that the still-living members of this little confab have had a long and trying day. as someone else mentioned, this is exactly what a wise grandparent would do – claim the fatigue of the younger generation as their own, and thus force the others to get the rest they so obviously need.

  15. Kelci says:

    Somehow, I don’t think Jhalm is going to listen to anything that even remotely involves wombats…or common sense, but the two seem to go hand in hand.

  16. Rags says:

    You know it’s been a long session when the ghost gets tired.

  17. TekServer says:

    We know the truth. It’s actually all that ethereal chanting that wears Helix out …

    Here begins the quest to kill the god who is dead

  19. lduke says:

    @Kisame that could be pulled right out of Lovecraft, the preface to the Necronomicon anyone?
