  1. Kevinbunny says:

    . . . why do I have a feeling they’ll either get lost, or wander into the middle of a certain Veiled’s birthday party..?

  2. Darius says:

    Apparently we suspect the author of being devilishly mean to his characters, because my first instinct was “…do you know the back of your paw, like, at all?”

  3. Andrea says:

    They’ll so get lost…

  4. TekServer says:

    I love Surka’s absolute confidence in their ability to take out the patrol …


  5. DanielCoffey says:

    What? No crawdads?

  6. Kisune says:

    So not going to go as well as planned xP

  7. SirEel says:

    Surka can call on trolls. I wouldn’t mess with her.

  8. jassius says:

    What? No troll riding?
    Well, that would speed the travel quite a bit

  9. Snowgods says:

    Yep Agree with Kevinbunny, A comment like that is bound to get them lost…

  10. Lanthir says:

    Oh, Surka! I love her.

  11. Barry says:

    Troll riding wouldn’t help much during the day. They’re pretty slow and groggy until it gets dark.

  12. Hawk says:

    *cue the “lost in the forest” music…!

  13. Vik-Thor says:

    A Tempt of Fate.

  14. WorkingVolition says:

    it’s gonna stink if captain Jhalm is only doing all this because he’s waiting for digger and company to return.

  15. JewelWolf says:

    “I know these woods like the back of my paw.”
    Famous last words.

  16. Chantal says:

    I know these woods like the back of my paw…..wait, that freckle wasn’t there before was it?

  17. duskDiamond says:

    What JewelWolf said….

  18. Skydancer says:

    Nah, Surka’s nothing if not competent. I think the problem will come in when she forgets that her charges are a lot -bigger- than she is, and tries to take shortcuts that they won’t fit through.

  19. Eugene says:

    When we were kids, my friends and I would sometimes challenge each other to see how well they *actually* knew the back of our hands. Everyone always did terribly.

    It’s probably the only saying that became ironic right at the moment of creation.

  20. Bartimaeus says:

    Having said that, they are almost guaranteed to run smack-bang into some horrible catastrophe.

  21. John the Wysard says:

    “I know these woods like the back of my paw” ranks right up there with “hey bubba, hold my beer and watch this” and “it’s easy, I’ve done it that way a million times…”

  22. aurickandrien says:

    I had absolute confidence in that shrew until she went and said those famous last words…

  23. JewelWolf says:

    I could not agree more with John the Wysard AND aurickandrien, but the Wysard forgot one more quote. “How hard could it be?”

  24. “I know these woods like the back of my paw.”
    *looks at paw*
    “Wait, what is that? Some kind of mole?”

  25. Rags says:

    ..keeping in mind that her paw is covered with fur.

  26. Calafalas says:

    I think the only phrase that would have been more ominous would be “What’s the worst that could happen?”

  27. Lurkie says:

    My favorite is, “What could possibly go wrong?” Whereupon the Universe makes a point of letting the poor fool who said it just what can go wrong.

  28. Lurkie says:

    Arrgh. “…who said it know just what can go wrong.” Okay, so I can’t type. Can’t edit my own comments, either, it seems.

  29. JewelWolf says:

    You can’t edit, delete, or anything except for post. It’s actually rather annoying.

  30. TekServer says:

    We have a saying where I work that has actually become a curse: “It’s a ten minute job.” We will actually use The Curse to get back at co-workers that tick us off. Because invariably, even if something ALWAYS only takes 10 minutes (like replacing a pair of speakers, or dropping off a repaired laptop and ensuring it works on-site), if you invoke The Curse it will take at least half a day, and a really good set of unanticipated complications can stretch it to as much as a week.


  31. TekServer says:

    Whoops! Apparently I forgot to turn off that stupid italics tag …


  32. wolfofsilver says:

    Nah to all of those. Murphy’s Law is in effect right now, ESPECIALLY since the “I know these woods like the back of my paw” line was dropped. Not only do the Veiled now know where they are, they’re descending upon them as we speak. On top of that, the Dark Hyenas are probably going to swirl in any second….And maybe SGV. Just maybe.

  33. Xyon says:

    Don’t forget the crawdads!

  34. the unclean one says:

    Well just finished off the archives (first time reader),

    now to suffer the horrible pain of waiting for a comic i love to update

  35. Fixer-Wolfie says:

    As far as the patrol goes, digger [i]did[/i] once scare off a patrol that had orders to bring her in, I believe she said something like: “You’re unarmed and have orders to bring me in alive, I, on the other hand (paw?) have a pickax and I really don’t much care what happens to you.” With that, she stormed off to visit Ed. Leaving the unsettled patrol group to come to the decision that “Captain Jhalm doesn’t really need to know about this right? Right.”

  36. BunnyRock says:

    “I thought you said you knew this forest like the back of your paw?”

    “I do! I know half a square inch of these forests REALLY well…”

    alternate joke…

    “I thought you said you knew this Forrest like the back of your paw?”

    “I used to captain a ship full of leaper pirates, do you know how often the topography of the backs of people hands changes in that line of work?”


    “We Lost?”


    “I thought you said…”

    “Look, I learnt my way abound these woods whilst I wash a dishwasher, between the piracy and the trolling. My paws were all swollen up and wrinkly and covered with suds at the time!”

  37. Tindi says:

    @Kevinbunny: Would Jhalm HAVE a birthday party?

  38. BoardEntity says:

    okay seriously one line in 30 pages. comeon ursala, I know the angsty hero isn’t that important but how can you blatantly ignore a character thats in a party of 4 or less constantly? D:
