Yeah boiiii! Demos is so badass!

Anyway, I'm still looking for photos of readers in their LARP garb to draw in as extras in the backgrounds. And, after a few comments from my non-LARP readers (who I totally forgot to mention in the previous post D:) I'd like to extend the invitation for you non-LARPers to draw a picture of yourself in LARP gear. Or maybe send me a photo of yourself and your two favorite colors at the very least. I really do want all of you guys to be in the comic, because you're the ones I'm drawing it for! I mean, I put enough of myself in it, why shouldn't you be in it, too? Plus my crowd scene drawing will go by so much faster if I don't actually have to think, and I can just look at pictures haha!

If you want more info, check the comments on the previous page. As before, send photos to josh.m.lees@gmail.com

NUBES!!! (in my opinion) the archer still has an arrow to gut da gobas (the goblins) with and red-head let him self get distracted instead of picking up his sword and turning to find goblins to gut.
and please don't ask about my name, (this next part is meant to be informative) and why have I yet to see any long sword((four foot long), maces, battle axes, glaves, staffs or any weapons other than daggers, short swords(about 2 foot long) and bows (magic doesn't count as a weapon and if it did the list would be at least three times bigger)? because I know how to make most of those.

PS: I don't have Larp clothes but I do have 2 sets of short swords and a long sword and I only play a few times a year with my boy scout troop and that's about it.

@dark eldar pyro: Haha! Yeah, Demos (the redhead) is a teenager who has a crush on Nabi (I'm not ruining that for anyone, am I?), which causes him to act a little irrationally here. Spoiler spoiler (watch out) he gets his reward for turning his back on the goblins on the next page. I'm not sure how arrows work in other games but in Amtgard (the only LARP I've played so my knowledge is a little bit limited), arrows have to be fired from a bow or crossbow in order for them to deal damage. In this case, she wasn't able to nock the arrow in time before she was being chased by Broseidon (the goblin). At least, when I'm being chased, it's pretty difficult for me to get my arrow ready haha!

As for weapon variation: Long swords aren't anywhere in my comic because they looked awkward when I drew them in sketches. There are some axes on page 88 http://bellofortis.smackjeeves.com/comics/1579791/thursday-05/ and you'll be seeing a glave and some more varied weapons in the next battle scene (in two or three more pages). As for this battle, the goblins are all using daggers because they are supposed to symbolize claws or fists, which is why they are the same color as the ears that the goblin characters are wearing. The main reason for my lack of weapon variation, is simply that, even though this comic is centralized around LARPing, there really hasn't been much fighting in the story yet haha! At last, the reason there has been a limited amount of magic is extremely simple: if I make it so that the readers (most of which are not into roleplaying) have to learn too much about the game, then the story gets muddied up with explanations, and I can't just tell a story about people. And while I love getting LARPers excited about Bello Fortis, I'd rather tell a story that anyone can enjoy.

But aside from me and my characters being nubes, I hope you're enjoying the story! Thank you so much for the comment, I'll definitely be adding more fun weapons into later pages now that I know it's something readers are looking for!

the storie has been good so far if you where to extend the length of short sword by half its length than you'd have atliest diffident sizes and they should modify the rule (I just read the rules) so that an arrow can be used as a jabbing melee weapon that dosn't affect armor because that would work in reality
