He had to go pretty far to get to the point where Ralla's asking questions. But it's kinda good to see her questioning, even something so obvious.
In regard to the skeletons, it was just something I've always thought about in fantasy when you have skeleton warriors…they have to be the most complex creations ever as far as magic is concerned, because the spell needs to hold them together, make them move (which in itself is complicated to do all the various motions required by just walking), add force to their movements because there wouldn't be any without muscles, make them aware of where enemies are as they have no senses, ect, ect, ect…it just always seemed to me to be something that was far too complex to be very useful…unless you just intend them to scare someone.
Incidentally, all these arguments become moot in my head if they have a soul inside them, because then arguably, the soul could be handling all that stuff and the magic could be much simpler.
…why do I think so much about this stuff?

I can't remember if I like the art or not and I don't feel like opening the image again (though I think I dislike the last panel).

If you're interested in finding a new webcomic read and need some recommendations, my top ten are here.

Thanks for reading! See you next week!
