Good guy, bad guy, Randulf is the one with the ax.
Also love the worried klopius look in the last panel.

The range of expressions on the cyclops is very good.

Randulph is showing up is badass side, experienced dungeon delver who apparently learned how to speak to monsters (at least I suspect he learned multiple languages in his quest to find whatever he is looking for) and Colleen is missing ALL of it! I bet she wouldn't believe if someone told her afterwards.

Randulph might be a Dwarven Tank of an adventurer, a strong and quite competent fighter to boot but what surprise me every time is his range of knowledge! Monsters languages, general monsters knowledge being able to recognize some at a glance, survivalist knowledge, botany (that time he identified Square Leaves and knew about their healing properties), some magic item identification, etc.

It's really a shame he is a drunken mess 95% of the time.

Humm... does Colleen has a spell to detoxify him of all alcohol in his system? What spell she can cast are awarded to her for acts of faith isn't it? Well enduring Randulph mood and alcoholism might award her something to clear it up!

Huh... just realized, Colleen can restore and mend broken objects right? There are probably some loots she could restore to boost the reselling value on her off days. Something to think about.

Like this comment. Sometime knowing too much is worse then not knowing anything.

Also, if I was raiding dungeon like all the adventure we have seen, I would take everything that isn't nailed down and sell it. Having a merchant partner would also be a good idea. "Why are we taking this table its not worth much and it's not magical." "Yes but even if we sell it for a couple of coppers its all profit."

It's all about carrying capacity I'm afraid. No matter how many pouches, extra bags, ropes, belts or collapsible sled you bring, you are only so strong. And it’s just Colleen and Randulph right now. Do you really see them bring back that heavy magic metal anvil up those stairs? First you need to secure the Dungeon floor of it’s dangers, then you need to make sure that your path back to the stairs is good/stable/wide enough to bring back those voluminous loot (seriously, passing some stuff through doors or corners is an adventure by itself) and afterwards you need to climb ALL the stairs to the surface carrying whatever you found that wasn't nailed down?! Remember, with this dungeon you can't make two trips!!

Have you ever tried to bring a (magic) fridge up some huge ass stairs like those with only two people who have radically different heights and levels of strength?!

The town around the Marblegates has been there for a long time now, so I wouldn’t be surprised you need to pass by the right merchants to sell your stuff. The Magic Academies buys all the magic stuff, there is probably someone who is in charge of scrap metals and reselling weapons and armors, another for materials, one for plants, a bank to exchange gold and trinkets for appropriate kingdom mints, etc. I am sure there is probably someone interested is buying dungeon furniture somewhere so there is probably a merchant who know such people... harder than it looks, not many would want to buy something this voluminous as a table.

I have been ranting but man would I now love to see Randulph and Colleen try to bring back something bigger than usual out of the Dungeon because they need a payday and all they got is very big heavy and ornate piece of furniture. 🤣 Life as a dungeon explorer is not always fights, Monsters and traps, sometimes it's trying to figure out how the fuck you are going to steal that Mahogany Desk because you wanna eat a warm meal tonight.

I remember reading an old d@d style fantasy adventure where a mage gets a party of adventurers to go raid a dungeon. Long story short they find a man sized statue of rare magic metal and bring it back to town then for the rest of the story they have to deal with all the trouble that this statue has caused in the town all because they brought back from the dungeon. (Also, it was this book that taught me how to loot a dungeon.)
Name of the book was "Another Day, Another Dungeon" by GREG COSTIKYAN

This is why they make the various kinds of 'bags (or steamer trunks) of holding' and 'scrolls of recall' where you just sit on the treasure and it goes home with you ;)

The problem with beating information out of people is that sometimes they have no information that you want. Also, he just single-handedly beat everyone in the room. Your hunting party may not fair any better. Also, I really like the klopius looks in the first panel. I also know what he said and it has nothing to do with flowers.
Darkening 9th Aug 2021, 12:22 AM edit delete reply
When he first started after these folks he specifically commented that Klopius have a tendency to scout out the area and learn everything about their floor of the dungeon, so it's unlikely the have no information.

Never hit a man when he is down. It’s much easier to kick him. Old Jäger proverb.
