hmmm...what was that about "a maiden's first kiss" ?
David Argall 26th Oct 2019, 2:25 AM edit delete reply
I'd advise a good "lawyer", but she can probably win an argument that this was just a friendly kiss with no sexual nature to it, just an expression of gratitude. And so she properly speaking is still unkissed.]
Now I am more worried about that letter[bomb?] which is to be delivered to the man whose death might benefit any of a very large number of very powerful people [not to mention some other types], and she is to be within range of the blast effect?[eliminating? the only witness that can testify about the satyr? [Could the reason for the kiss being to distract her from thinking too much about this message? Sounds way too devious, but..]

I think an easy way to make it not count would be to give goat-boy a kick between the legs so hard that he won't be able to walk straight for hours... or days.

Can't a girl just walk around town without being asked for favors?
GoldMoon 25th Oct 2019, 3:42 PM edit delete reply
Probably not
Rocktopus 25th Oct 2019, 4:13 PM edit delete reply
It's a fantasy world based on RPGs
Obviously EVERYONE has a quest to give :P

Be careful boy. That could be consider sexual assault. It get you at least a good slap.

I wonder what the etiquette is for fey creatures who run around without clothes?
DanMan 25th Oct 2019, 4:42 PM edit delete reply
Exactly- this is a Satyr - those guys are like the non-evil equivalent of a succubus. That was probably the same as a high-five for him.

Good thing she didn't get the request from a succubus! I imagine a succubus 'thank you' would have left her with a public indecency citation and a need for therapy.
Guest 25th Oct 2019, 5:09 PM edit delete reply
And a negative level or two.

Also, not trusting the veneer of innocence this goat-boy is putting on...
Misroi 25th Oct 2019, 10:59 PM edit delete reply
Exactly my thought. The very idea of a "non-evil" Satyr is directly opposed to the Great God Pan.
Andrew_C 26th Oct 2019, 12:34 PM edit delete reply
IMO Pan, like other trickster gods, is chaotic, not evil. If we are using old fashioned AD&D alignments, Chaotic Neutral

So if these two slept together, would that be classed as fawnication? :D
Thracecius 25th Oct 2019, 5:39 PM edit delete reply
"Ack! Pthbbtt! Eww! Gross!"

Or at least I hope that's her reaction. We don't need any fawnifaction in this comic. ;D

If he lied about having to deliver another letter, does it mean it was some faun-fiction?
Sensei Le Roof 29th Oct 2019, 2:46 PM edit delete reply
Aw, but it looks like he's faun'd of her!

*Smacks him*

*Throws the letter back at him*

Of course, that's rule #1
pkrankow 25th Oct 2019, 6:18 PM edit delete reply
For some reason I read the satyr as having a Scot or Galic accent...
Gabrielli 25th Oct 2019, 6:20 PM edit delete reply
Yeah, that doesn't seem AT ALL suspicious.

I love his pocket watch!

They must have some way to tell such precise time in this world :)
BornOnTheNinth 25th Oct 2019, 9:33 PM edit delete reply
It looks like the satyr was feeling a little "horny".
BornOnTheNinth 26th Oct 2019, 6:51 AM edit delete reply
Get it? It's a pun. Because he has horns ...
Guest 26th Oct 2019, 9:55 AM edit delete reply
That was a Pan-ful pun. I cannot help but bahhh at it.
Patrick-Leigh 26th Oct 2019, 1:52 AM edit delete reply
Knowing her luck, not only did he kiss her without warning (or permission) he also had REALLY bad breath...

...Side quest found: The mysterious letter... The mafia wants that letter and makes her an offer, she can't refuse...!
...yeah, that's how adventures work...! ;-)

I like how he stipulates that it would be an affront for Colleen to not deliver it personally... while he's failing to deliver it personally.

This is a world where long-range communications are done with smart fauns.

You sir win an award! You now have access to the world wide fen with your new smart faun!

Just binged Marblegate and I absolutely love it. It's funny and engaging and I love the way you weave in Christian themes and imagery. The angelic beings give me goosebumps!
