#576 - Dwarven Mines
... First comment?
I'm really REALLY hoping that Leaf doesn't get a chance to repurpose that cart. So far, most, if not all, of his ideas have nearly resulted in death.
i hope there is an Indiana johns moment here
Perhaps there should be a vote :)
Love the snow here! Looks very realistic, even the faint sun in the snowy landscapes looks great, as well as Aynes expression in the fourth panel. Too bad about the cart though, a bunch of elves in a cart in an abandonned mine, propelled by a dragon breathing fire from the back would look awesome! :D
It's about time. This quest has been quite boring until now -.-
I really like the snowy landscape !
Leaf just won't pass an opportunity for adventure... not without some "persuading", that is.
So these are the Mines of Moira, we expecting Leaf to fall thousands of feet straight down while battling a Balrog :)
Would that also mean Ayne would be stabbed by a huge spear but survive sue to elven armour? Oops, wrong fantasy worlds :p
Oh, but he has to use the cart!
Wait. I was just looking around with the magnifier and I was both Feiht and a little devilish thing hiding in the outlines.
no one says:
Umm...Why would someone try to stop them?
While a pixie, I don't think it's Feiht. No idea what the devilish thing is, cept it seems to be eating the panel with sharp teeth.
Hee--even the Furies don't want to mess with an Annoyed Ayne.. ;-)
great alt text :) also, wernt these the mines of mario? or moria? or maori?
They'll walk, and some monster will hurtle past them in the cart and smash against a wall. Leaf will get a "we told you so" in stereo.
They should make a drawing of Pulsy's idea for a donation incentive. I bet a lot of folks would pay to see that.
You people who like to translate runes - what does the sign say?
Perhaps the dwarves in their greed dug too deep and unleashed...BUNNIES!
Darius Drake says:
Leaf seems to have played a Donkey Kong game. Yay for cart levels.
The runes mean: 'Beware the cart-riding Elves!' They were put there by a fortune-teller.
Anyone tried translating the runes? They're a bit faded, but I think the top sign is "GOLD"
The runes say "orar" and "annars", I think.
Even a Balrog would be afraid of one of Leaf's ideas. Even the simplest ones. So, maybe, using his idea would cause less problems, rather than more? They may just not know if, had they chosen differently, they would be in more or less trouble. For all they know, some of Leaf's inventions/plans may have gotten them out of trouble on an occasion. Or maybe two. (or maybe not)
I get "Eror" and, um, "Lnsapf?" for the second one in the runes.
I'm with Leaf. Ayne being "annoyed" is a scary premise.
Dungeon&Dragons NERD says:
Is it just me or has leaf been getting taller recently, oh and this sounds bad, big dark potentially deserted mine, I smell a goblin.
Woah! I'm up to date! Time to start over! ;P
Lovely so far! Love the alt text for this one!

...I think I found an easter egg in the zoom-in. Check the bottom of panel 3.

Or between 4 and 5
Pulsy: "propelled"? From the angle the tracks go down, I don't think they need propulsion. More like brakes. And, you know ... the reason why you SHOULDN'T use carts in abandoned mines is that brakes are usually the part of cart most damaged by staying there abandoned on a weather ...
Magic Rocket (a less well known variant of Magic Missile)-powered mine cart? Please?
