"No Don Krieg?"

What?! I was really looking forward to how you do the fight between Luffy and Don Krieg! Ok it was pretty funny, but still please tell Krieg's not really dead yet. It's my favorite pre-Grand Line fight.
P.S. I love your comic. Found it through Friendship is Dragons, and have been following since.
P.S.S. First!(First time too.(hopefully))

If I remember right, then the Don Krieg-Luffy fight happens after the Zoro-Mihawk one. We get to see Zoro nearly cut in half, Sanji and Gin bond a little, Nami dick the entire party over for a while, and Usopp... not really do much of anything before Luffy takes on Krieg.

Thanks for the reminder. I just had a small panic moment. But after a second look, I realized GM said he was "defeated" and not "killed". Though with the kind of history this group has, those words tend to overlap. Oh well.

I also found this through Friendship is Dragons.

That said, I wasn't a regular reader until DT moved from that pain in the ass site drunksuck, here to comicfury.

No, it's not out of character for me to hate drunksuck(autocorrect sucks, but I'm keeping it this way because it fits.) because that site, after I signed up, redirected me to a page that crashed my browser and apparently corrupted my pristine google chrome, resulting in me spending three weeks looking for the last little piece of data in my registry that kept screwing up chrome when I tried to reinstall it.

Story time is about having your transportation stolen.

Also, I was thinking they had ditched Johnny and Yosaku by this point. Huh.

Johnny and Yosaku stay around through Arlong Park (although they don't do anything)

Actually, they do arguably one of the most important things in the Arlong arc - they stop the townspeople from rushing into Arlong Park and killing themselves.

Ah. Since nobody has posted a storytime, I guess I should start off. Raxon Dunwich made a spaceship. Basically, he bought a few thousand used shipping containers, welded them together, and installed the magical equivalent of Christmas lights all over. He then cut the corners off, turned them around at weird angles, and welded them back on, then furnished the insides.

So he decides the maiden voyage should be memorable. He starts it at Jupiter, and approaches Earth, making certain he's seen coming from a long ways away. He lands in Washington DC, to a large crowd all around. There is a military presence, news stations, lots of national and international coverage.

So, a ramp descends, and down the plank walks Raxon, in Fae form. Clack clack clack go his boots as he walks down to the ground. He reaches the ground, and raises his hand. He takes a deep breath... and begins to hyperventilate. After almost a minute of gasping, he collapses. Two other fae rush out, grab him, and hurriedly drag him back onto the ship. The ramp retracts, and the airlock closes.

Half an hour passes, and then an irate voice is heard. "What the hell is wrong with you!? Why is there so much poison in your air? Are you so primitive that you can't even control the nitrogen in your air? I was told you breathe oxygen! Why is it tainted with so much nitrogen pollution!? Well, no matter. I will be out shortly to try again."

Ten minutes later, Raxon, in fae form, exits his ship once more, this time wearing a pressurized suit. "People of earth! I wish to speak with the leader of this nation. I am in need of a photo op." After a few hours, the area is considered secure enough for the president to go there.

The president approaches boldly, all smiles. "Hello there. Welcome to Earth." He holds out his hand to shake. Raxon taps the president's nose. "Beep!" He runs back onto the ship, giggling, and it takes off. Laughter can be heard from the ship as it takes off.

Two weeks later, Raxon issues a giggle filled apology for his childish misconduct. He offers the US the ship as an apology. After he lands it, some kid runs by, steals the keys out of his hand, and takes off with the ship. Raxon rigged the flight controls to a PS2 controller. Within seconds, some twelve year old boy is joyriding through the skies in a corrugated starship, calling obscenities and trolling people over the speakers.

Raxon wasn't even trying to create an international incident this time. Seriously. Some kid just took the keys and stole the dang thing, just as he was about to present them to someone.

He has this condition that attracts abnormal events to him. I call it protagonist syndrome.

Forgot to mention, I don't actually have a story for my ride stolen in any of the groups I've been in. We have jacked a few rides ourselves however! Trust me, you have no idea how crazy it is to try and talk a human-alien hybrid through hotwiring a car over the phone.

"I Think I've Heard Of It Before..."

"He has this condition that attracts abnormal events to him. I call it protagonist syndrome."

Given who and what Raxon is... it almost sounds like the GURPS Disadvantage "Weirdness Magnet". The main difference being Raxon sounds kind of like the being a normal person would attract with it, so instead he just gets more mundane situations that are still weird for him (like said kid stealing the car keys).

Let's put it this way. Raxon draws strange things to himself. Heck, he has two of the three gorgon sisters living in his home, and he tricked the Olympians into giving him permission to remove their curse. So it's not all bad stuff. But when you factor in how the fates like to mess with him, he is constantly in need of downtime to effect repairs.

Kinda like how he was trying to summon his best friend from back home, and some jerk namee Ray Palmer spoke in the middle of the ritual. It was a really freaking powerful summoning ritual, too. Instead, he got a general from the planet of the furries, and two shapeshifting succubi assassins in the middle of trying to kill said general. And failing miserably, so they can't be very good assassins.

The fact that she's a wizard and a soldier, and she's older than Raxon by a full magnitude and some change does not mean.. . Huh. I guess it does excuse them a little.

One of them tried to seduce Raxon. For reference, Raxon is an ascetic monk who abandoned his carnal desires. Guess how well that went.

That said, he also gets an eight legged kitten who likes to hide on the ceiling and pounce on your head as a game, so I guess that evens out. The internet adores Flopsy, the eight legged, roughly one pound kitten, who can quickly and easily kill eight pound rats, and has done so without getting a scratch.

So yeah, weirdness magnet, except many of the weird stuff he's used to. Monsters, madmen, supervillains, all regular stuff. Some kid jacks his ride? "Oh no! What do I do? Do I handle it, or let the cops take care of it? Can we talk him down? Can I get away with shooting it down? Oh no what do I do?!"

Is nitrogen a racial weakness to Raxon, or was he playing it as a joke?

22nd Apr 2014, 3:17 AM

As a joke. Technically, Raxon no longer counts as human, due to his... extensive modifications. The closest thing I can think of for him off hand would be akin to a demilich flesh golem. Except for the whole lightning healing. He fries like everything else.

Three hearts, two pairs of lungs, a second brain, carbon laced reinforced bone structure, venom sacs and high end blood filtration, several detrimental hardwired human instincts removed, "wetlungs" capable of pulling oxygen from water, artery constriction and compartmentalization system put in place, redundant blood supply systems, gullet distillation organ, ink sac, severe joint modifications to allow for double and triple jointed movement, optional wings capable of flight speeds of 30-45 mph, additional redundant nerve nodes and pathways, and strategically placed detachable bone weapons, capable of being torn out with minimal structural damage, and requiring only semisuperficial skin lacerations to access them.

Yeah. The fact he has built in touniquets, multiple redundant critical systems, qnd basically redesigned his organs like a good engineering student designs his ultimate dream car.

So no, no weakness to nitrogen. Though since he shifted to one of the high seelie fae, he would not be recognizable as himself, though still bearing humanoid enough appearance not to cause a xenophobic knee jerk reaction in the public. But they don't have a nitrogen weakness, either. All a joke. I was considering having him give the president a book with the words "HOW TO SERVE MAN" emblazoned on the front, but they would shut that down before he could have a photo op of him handing the book to the president.

The secret service is a little too genre savvy for a joke like that to work.

Forget about punching out Cthulhu you could probably be in a serious committed relationship.

Without being committed.

And then when you punched him it would just be an abusive relationship.

You must realize that Raxon is a mad scientist of the aetheral arts, and one of his hobbies back home was stealing genetic code from monsters, and taking their forms and powers for himself.

Yeah, kinda like Megaman. That said, he reached a point where that became obsolete, but he still collects them. He has a couple thousand forms, mostly the humanoid beast hybrids that wizards used to use as servants. In the DC universe, an ogre really isn't such a serious threat. Even with their extraordinary regeneration, do you have any idea how easy it is to kill one with an MP5? A dragon is, indeed, a dangerous and formidable foe... until a dude who can swing a wrecking ball with one hand comes along. And all of Raxon's dragons are young, so despite being Colossal+ size each, they don't know the powerful magic that would make them truly dangerous.

In short, all of Raxon's super awesome powers and abilities are underpowered, and all this mundane spells are ridiculously effective.

I'm not kidding. He has one preferred attack spell. Kinetic Lance. Think magic missile, but dealing piercing damage. His wormhole portals can be opened in front of a moving object, then severed, resulting in flawless portal cuts. He can teleport people anywhere.

Heck, all those inhuman body mods, plus his +5 damage reduction from being an epic level monk bring him up to above average human durability. The only real physical superhuman ability he has is physical stamina, which just means he won't tire if he has to run.

Seriously, dude. Considering Raxon has drone bodies that are separate but physically connected, I would say Raxon has achieved eldritch abomination levels. At least on par with Cthulhu.

Remember, though. Cthulhu is a bit player among elder gods. By their standards, he's small and weak. Without his magic, Raxon Dunwich is just a human. Granted, he is a very tricky, dangerous human with knowledge of things man was not meant to know, but still just a man... Whose punches can ignore armor, and who can fire short to medium range low power ki attacks.

"Stolen Transports"

Well, no one ever seems to keep a horse for long in the games I've played. Whether we're stealing guards', bandits are stealing ours, druids are liberating them from inns, or some other whacked-out mishap (don't get me started on the centaurs)... oh, and monsters eat them. Yeah, I wouldn't want to be a horse in a fantasy 'verse.

Well, I can understand now why you hate Drunkduck (I stopped reading stuff on there cause I lost interest), but I found this back when it was still on Drunkduck. I started reading it back when DT was still working on the Buggy arc. It was the first Campaign comic I read and lead me to all the others. Of course I don't usually sign up for stuff like this, when I can do stuff without signing up, so I didn't register or whatever so I didn't get whatever virus it looks like you got. Also, while there is a computer in the house, I tend use the Wii, which can't viruses on account of how it works.

"It's not like I'm pushing him to optimize his character or anything like that." - I'm not sure what's scarier. That such a thing is being said, full stop, or that such a thing is being said to CORY, or that anything Cory has made is considered unoptimized by someone else... Or all of the above. At once. Because ye gods.

Well there's a point on the optimization curve where anything that's not Psionic Artificer, Spell to power Erudite or Planar Shepard is concidered a waste of space, where a melee build capable of infinite attacks per round would be laughed at as ineffective and suboptimal and where the wish spell is not a important plot element but the basic unit of economic activity.

Technically Cory would be using Multi-Weapon Fighting rather than Two-Weapon fighting.
Which has less support feats and such but isn't as bad.

Of course it still lacks any sort of flight and ranged attacks so gets screwed late game.


Hence Zoro eventually learning the 108 pound cannon :D

After double checking Multiweapon fighting, turns out you need at least 3 hands, so unless Cory found a way around that prereq, I guess he really is using Two-Weapon fighting...

Although I'm pretty sure he was part fishman for a bite attack, and made his white sword a mouthpick weapon, so he could wield it in his mouth.

Although he'd also need the feat Exotic Weapon Proficiency: Bastard Sword, to use Katana without taking a penalty.

I would think that, in setting, Katanas are probably considered a martial weapon.
