Rock Ness Mess part 2

So I decided I wanted to do a little run with a more elusive, roguish character and Roger seemed the perfect candidate. I also wanted to do some underground cavernous backgrounds. During our trip to Mexico last year my wife and I swam around some flooded underground caves. It looked pretty awesome – much awesomer than I draw it. It was the first time I had explored the underdark like that and I guess it inspired me to visit the sorts of places my Dungeons and Dragons characters have been taken with a Princess Planet character. I hope you enjoy this little series of subterranean silliness. Any spelunkers in the house?

    Got a D&D vibe, definitely. Not just of the Underdark. As soon as I saw the strip, I thought “Oh great, — piercers.” 😉

    No spelunking for me! I get claustrophobic. I’m much more of an outdoor ‘Ranger’-type guy.

    mdf – Yeah, but they’re FOOT piercers. I never saw those in D&D. 🙂

    Hoppy – I hope your life’s DM doesn’t railroad you into the underground.

    My Life DM is pretty darn cool about that. He’s made the whole world into one of those ‘open-sandbox’ dungeons. I can go anywhere, do anything, and he’ll just show me what I see. His riddles get pretty tough, tho… like his “Meaning of Life” riddle… took me decades to figure that one out! 😀

    Hoppy – Awesome! Let’s hope the chimera, sphinx and other cats don’t soil the sandbox. 😛

    Underground caves? Too obvious.

    Tamfang – You’re right! D’oh! I should have made cloud caves! I’ll save that for another strip.

    I like the stalagmite/lagtime almost-anagram. Make it complete with “sat” or something…

    Also, Stalagmite could be Marmite eaten (or made) by residents of a Stalag.

    Lars – it mite be!
