Large open space. Treasure in sight.
Should have known it was a boss room.

Of course!

Check over the door?

Gonna be more of a fight if they must stay on the path.
Lurker 21st Dec 2018, 8:55 PM edit delete reply
Scary thought: what if there are traps in the floor outside the path? While they are busy fighting this giant centipede, they might inadvertently step off the path and trigger a trap.

Hehe who knows?

I thought you said that cave centipedes were harmless.
pkrankow 22nd Dec 2018, 12:09 AM edit delete reply
This one looks a little ... infected.
Rocktopus 22nd Dec 2018, 2:05 AM edit delete reply
and bigger

Cave centipedes are harmless. However, this is not cave centipede. It's dungeon millipede, which diet consists primarily of dungeon-delvers.

I just found your comic last month and I have to say the story and artwork are both amazing and so compelling. I always look forward to the next page and I'm always wowed. Keep up the awesome work!
Rocktopus 22nd Dec 2018, 2:06 AM edit delete reply
Awesome! Thanks so much for saying so! I'm glad to have you on board!

I wonder if Colleen is going to harden her heart here and smash that centipede to chitinous chunks... "I'll rest in peace when you rest in pieces!"

One can only hope

That thing needs a bath. Like, now.

Any volunteers?

mushrooms are so amazing. i'm already wondering if this insect has picked up "blink drive" capabilities through the galactic mycelium network.
Rocktopus 22nd Dec 2018, 2:07 AM edit delete reply
Is there anything they CAN'T do? :)

The biggest mystery in Marblegate is way hardly anyone supports it on Patreon.
It's a bit ironic to point it out now but It's bugging me.
Rocktopus 22nd Dec 2018, 2:09 AM edit delete reply
Yeah, money's always tight.
Artists and comic makers don't generally make nearly as much money on Patreon as video games and youtubers (unless they make porn).
I'm very happy and appreciative of the people who do support me, though.

Is that a carrion crawler?
Rocktopus 22nd Dec 2018, 6:37 AM edit delete reply
Nope, but you're close!

As long as it's not secretly a Deathweb, we'll be ~fine~
padanew 22nd Dec 2018, 8:32 AM edit delete reply
It was not a trap. No traps here not a one. It is an ambush! Not a bush by the road. Not an Amway dealing waiting for you. Just an attack nothing to see here please move along.

2. Rule to Marblegate treasures: Guards and traps are not exclusive - if you found one don't stop looking!
Rocktopus 23rd Dec 2018, 10:58 PM edit delete reply
I thought that was rule #1
black salami 23rd Dec 2018, 3:23 PM edit delete reply
this shit is so good i gotta see more
Rocktopus 23rd Dec 2018, 10:59 PM edit delete reply
More on the way!
Commander Dulton 24th Dec 2018, 5:08 AM edit delete reply
Monsterous Centipede. Looks... Huge? Gargantuan? I'm going to say Huge to be conservative but those are only CR 2 so it either has a gimmick(likely given the mushrooms) or that's a gargantuan one and the "DM" hates them mightily.

Good luck you two, your going to be making lots of saves this fight!
Rocktopus 26th Dec 2018, 5:47 AM edit delete reply
Well there are a few nasty ones in Pathfinder that are a little tougher than the D&D 5th edition ;)

The adder "in this situation" makes the proliferation of rule #1s more understandable. What the dwarf is saying is that there are not only many rules, but that they are context dependent and do not have a permanent numerical ranking. Rather, it's important to understand which rule is more relevant in any given situation and thus should be elevated to Rule #1.

He is bad at explaining things.
Rocktopus 26th Dec 2018, 7:32 PM edit delete reply
Correct on all fronts!

I believe this moment deserves a Hellboy, "Oh crap". :D

This beast is unwholesome.

Well, the straight up confrontation is definitely simpler.
Although to mention yet another rule 1 of dugeoneering, simpler doesn't mean easier.
