I love doing the lighting for panels in the Knobby Knight Inn; the colors are so warm and fun to make.

Why not magic lamps in the hallway that hurl judgemental statements at you as you go to your room. (bought for cheap from the judgemental magic item shop).

It's always the first room on the Right. or the left...

You did the past chapters well showing a new low level priest and an experienced character together and how they deal with things.

Hmmm. Interesting. I do think that I'll bookmark this. It's pretty funny despite that weirdass gap in Coleen's teeth. Like, it wouldn't bother if It went all the way down and her front teeth were separated but instead they somehow curve out and then in again. Ah well. c'est la vie

The teeth design was a stylistic choice. If the art style was more realistic, the gap would have been all the way down her upper teeth. I tried it like that and I wasn't happy with how it looked; it made her look like she had hick teeth rather than a dorky overbite.

Thanks for the feedback!

I bet she has room mates she didn't know about

It would cut the rent, tho I suspect they will not be her preferred choice[s].

And how indecent would that be for a priestess to share a bed with another person :P

prestidigitation kill/removes bugs most inns will have anti-bug spells cast regularly.

But does it keep out the giant magical vermin that infest fantasy worlds?
Lurker 29th Sep 2017, 8:39 PM edit delete reply
Y'know, I've always wondered. Why is it that, in spite of the existence of deadly, magical, high-level, spellcasting and spell-resistant bugs of unusual size, are villages in fantasy worlds still not too much different from medieval villages in real life?

You'd think that things would look a lot different if the village had to deal with magical 6-foot-wide giant spiders from the nearby forest and giant 2-foot-diameter giant worms from the nearby swamp on a regular basis. You'd build your houses on stilts or something, or have giant stone walls to keep the giant vermin out. Townsfolk would be wearing full-body armor and armed with wicked enchanted sabres for self-defence. Or hire elite, high-level guards who can blast said vermin to smithereens on sight. Which then begs the question, if such guards exist, why the need for heroes at all? :P

Or if the village can't afford to hire such guards, the village wouldn't even exist at all, since it'd get overrun by horrific creatures within a couple o' months at the most.

Smaller villages probably form a torch and pitchfork mob once a month as a community service and go torching nearby monster nests in the woods. Or if the monsters are too tough send a note to the local adventurer's guild offering some reward for a bunch of heros bringing back x-number of spider livers for some anti poison potions there local witch/alchemist brews up for cheap.

And the local lord/nobles may take up hunting as a duty more than as a hobby (or form of harvest), with more challenging game than boars bears and wolves.
Poacher may be punished even harder though, nothing more dangerous than an enraged monster which injured itself in some illegally set trap - now that could decimate the whole popultion of an area and not just a single village.

Bed bugs, Kissing bugs yes, Giant bugs no but if it got out that the inn had Giant bugs it would be bad for business.

do they pay rent or not?
Rocktopus 30th Sep 2017, 7:32 PM edit delete reply
Yep, they have to pay for every day they spend in it.
Worstcase 30th Sep 2017, 9:59 AM edit delete reply
That room is pretty close to the stairs. Did it vacate recently? Gruesome death in the dungeon comes to mind as the most likely reason ^^' The tavern probably has a policy that they can sell the items of deceased adventurer left behind after a week/month they went missing.
If so the 'late' owner may have left something behind the cleaning staff didn't find - hidden diary or something the like.

People come and go from Marblegate all the time; most adventureres go in once or twice and that's all they can handle.
