Your… trade skills? You always get a little uncomfortable when the T-word pops into your head.

Suffice to say, your childhood was not full of encouragement, your adolescence was not full of employment, and your adulthood has not been full of success. Each one sort of led into the next, which is to say “nowhere”. It’s one of the things you’re hoping to fix in your new life. Someday, you’ll be good at something. Or even just adequate at it. It would make you so happy.

But for the time being you’re pretty much worthless. I mean, you know a pretty interesting party trick involving a yoyo and a pineapple, but… it’s not appropriate for most parties.

You think it’s supposed to be a bag of swords, but you’re not sure. It’s pretty much the worst sign you’ve ever seen. You can barely read it.

If you need some quick cash later maybe you can offer to redesign it.

Right now, however, your best bet for steady employment seems to be the restaurant. And hey, you’re Cyrodiillian now, may as well get to know the locals.

You head in. This place is pretty nice, you guess. Sort of homey.

The proprietor is some kind of elf. There’s like a billion kinds of elves, you can never keep them straight. He welcomes you to The Flowing Bowl and asks if you would like to see a menu.

      oh god even with my compulsive proofreading that typo has apparently gone unnoticed for four months. I am FILLED WITH SHAME.

      It’s gone now.

  • Benjii

    Say “no thanks” and instead ask if he knows any good jobs.

  • who149

    I just realized that this is the first time she mentions the Pineapple and the yo-yo.

    Why hasn’t someone put glasses over Katia in that first image yet?

      Hmmm… if it works after 10 clicks, then it probably doesn’t have anything to do with the actual website coding. It’s been running really slow in general lately, so I’m guessing it’s a problem with the hosting company.

      I’ll look into it, thanks. If it doesn’t clear up in a couple hours then I’ll start calling up the company and whining.

      • Jadav

        Doesn’t seem to have the problem anymore, and I’m guessing it was due to the influx of new viewers after the Elder Scrolls facebook page linked your comic. P.S, keep up the good work, I love the comic 🙂

  • Bobanook

    Never get to know elves…

    …unless it’s a High Elf. They like to party.

    So many elves. Let’s see, we can start with the Godly elves, aka the Aedra who are the ancestors of the elves.
    From them we get Aldmer, aka the First Ones from which all other elves derive. Whether they asked, “Who are you?” or, “What do you want?” has, sadly, been lost to history. Cladistically all elves are Aldmeri.
    Many of the elven races derive directly from the Aldmer.
    There’s the unlabeled elves, called Ayleids. They are the only elves who don’t assert their elven nature by including mer/elf in their name.
    There’s the dwarfy elves, called the Dwemer. Best known for building underground fortresses and that one mega project, perhaps spurred on by a fell mood, that disappeared, or killed, all but one of them.
    There’s the seamen sea elves, called Maormer. They tend to be shy and have only recently been seen, back in the second era.
    Next we come to the pretentious elves, called the Altmer. This means cultured elf and not, as might be suspected, alternate elf.
    Then the tree-hugging cannibalistic elves, called the Bosmer. They live in Valenwood, which shares a border with Elsweyr. They sometimes come into conflict with the Khajiit over where exactly this border is; this makes them the worst elves, scientifically speaking.
    Next are the Volcanological elves, called the Dunmer. They live at the foot of giant magical volcano. The ash from this volcano enriches the soil that the beast slaves Dunmeri work; as such, living there is the best idea and could not possibly backfire.
    Then the are-you-sure-those-are-elves elves, called Orsimer. I’d say something snarky about them, but they scare me.
    Next is Knight-Paladin Gelebor, the Snow Elf. He is very lonely, but does not cry because the cold of Skyrim would only freeze the tears to his face.
    Last are the unlucky elves, called the Falmer. Enslaved to the Dwemer they still inhabit their ruins and, presumably, piss on their graves.

    Honorable mention goes to three more races.
    The Bretons are the result of interbreeding between a race of men from Skyrim and Mer in High Rock. Presumably the elves were not as worried about racial purity as, say, the Altmer are. This allowed for peaceful coexistence, it also means that the elven race seems to have disappeared into the faster breeding human population.
    There was a race of rather sinister elves that lived on Yokuda, called the left-handed elves. Since they are not called the amphibious elves they most likely all died when Yokuda sank.
    Last are the Cantemiric Velothi. They used to live in Black Marsh, until they didn’t; at least they don’t have to live in a swamp anymore.

    Sometimes a Bosmer just wants to sing about their establishment. Why? Because.

    Flowing Bowl bar has food on it’s menu
    Flowing Bowl bar has booze… Yeaaaaaaaah

    Flowing Bowl Inn has beds for a small fee
    Flowing Bowl Inn is clean… Yeaaaaah

    Flowing Bowl, service to
    Flowing Bowl, all for you

    But see the cat is broke, it makes her cry
    But see the cat can’t buy… Nooooooo
