don’t let a little slip-up deter you from having the BEST NIGHT EVER!

You’re not planning on it.

Honestly, you’re not even that scared anymore. And it feels great, like you’ve done something impossible. Like you’ve taken a step in the right direction. Like maybe, for the first time in your life, you’re finally living up to the name Katia Managan. Other than a regrettable, drunken one-night stand with a diseased necromancer, this is shaping up to be the best day of your life. You’re having dinner with a real, live Countess and enjoying it.

I mean sure, she’s completely flipping her shit over there and ruining a perfectly good knife, but something about that just makes her all the more human. It also gives you a warm reminder that if she tries to kill you, these plates will work as shields.

Seeing as how everyone is sorta ignoring the Countass‘s outbreak, just lean over to Quill-Weave and ask her discretely, as in without the Countass noticing.

You are pretty curious why she got so mad, though. You swear she almost looked happy when you told her you were robbed. That was really weird and everyone just seems to be ignoring it. You better ask Quill-Weave about this before you mess up again. Of course, there’s no way you can whisper in her ear without the Countess noticing.

Luckily, you know an old trick (supposedly) created by Khajiiti slaves in Morrowind. Let’s see if Quill-Weave knows it too…

That must be the Imperial Legion soldier you were advised not to bring up. Quill-Weave lets go of your tail before you can ask why the Countess hates this guy so much.

Katia: Would the razor accident make an entertaining story? Because although it kind of sucks for you, a dose of schadenfreude might be just what Umbranox needs right now.

You’re not going to talk about the razor accident.

It’s not appropriate table conversation and you don’t even remember most of it.

  • Suraru

    ๐Ÿ˜€ is that Morse code ๐Ÿ˜€ (with the tails)

    • Kazerad

      Who is this Morse of which you speak? There is no Mr. Morse in Tamriel!

      Seriously though, yeah, it is. If you actually take the trouble to translate the movements, the animations are only showing the first few letters or so.

      • Thornclaw

        how do you know? you a Morse fan or something cool?

        • Lochcelious

          No, they are the CREATOR of the comic.

          • As such, a somewhat reliable source for behind-the-scenes info.

          • C

            Only if you believe in “Word of God” and not “Death of the Author”.

    • creeperbro

      I thought it was something… not so nice… 0_o

  • A

    I’m just pointing out a little typo : “for he first time in your life” line three . ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Kazerad

      Oh no, thousands of people have seen me misspell “the”. D=

      Typo fixed. Thanks!

  • Sormund

    New reader here, loving it so far! I just dropped by on the comments at last to let you know a little detail on this page:

    “Quill-Weave lets go of your tail before you can why ask the Countess hates this guy so much.”

    I suppose that “can” was supposed to be after the “why”, not before? Unless I’m reading this wrong, which might be the case as I’m not a native english speaker. Anyway, that’s pretty irrelevant after all.

    • Kazerad

      Fixed, thank you! I’ve recently been learning (via comments) that there is a shocking amount of typos like that in these older pages. Hopefully I’ve gotten them all now.

  • FoaL

    Shaved Katia reminds me of Mew o.o

    • creeperbro

      Reminds me of Pink Panther >.>

    • JET73L

      …Reminds me of Dobby. *shame*

    • dtlux14

      Mew? I guess I can sort of see how…

  • Zerp

    ALL her fur? SOME accident! wow

  • refinder

    A one night stand with Freaky Fred?

    “Katia, your haaaaaaaaiiiiiirrrr…”

    • refinder

      Upon thinking a bit more on it, I came up with this:

      It was on one summer’s eve
      when a drunken khajiit I did see.
      She looked it me with fur a plenty
      in braids I dare say numbered twenty.
      And with slurred speech as she swayed
      she did ask if she could stay.
      So I figured “what the hey?”

      During the night, I must confess, I got a little… naaauughty.

      • Tenka

        You, Refinder, are very talented.

      • My God.
        Someone give this user a premium internet, NOW.

      • dtlux14

        Love it.

    • Lostillusion

      Heh, that was my thought as well.

    • Coolio Beanios

      That’s exactly what I was thinking when I saw it. With that… toothy grin… and those children singing in the background…

      Laaaa la laaaa la laaaaa la laaaaaa…

      • I think Katia should stick with “Giggle at the Ghosties”, if she wants to keep her composure at all.

        • dtlux14

          No. How about she may have done with a unicorn though? ๐Ÿ˜›

  • brofist

    “as in without the Countass noticing.”
    still not sure if this is on purpose or not, but thought I’d point it out

    • Link

      It’s obviously a remnant from the conversation with Capital S =P
      “When heโ€™s not on the road he just likes to hang around in the throne room. You know, sit and stare at that capital piece of countass. All day long.”

      • lugosh

        Where is your avatar from?

        It is the same art-style as the music videos for “The Riddle” and “Bla Bla Bla” by Gigi D’Agostino, which I enjoy muchly! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Vorlice

    I ship this now

  • Alvklez

    I hope to God people know that these guys are just basing this entire comic off of a game. The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion to be exact. They didn’t create Tamriel, Cyrodiil, Hammerfell, Anvil (the town they’re in), The Stranger, CountESS Umbranox, The Redguard Blacksmith, Quill-Weave or anything, although they did create Katia and all her back story. But this comic is badass ๐Ÿ˜€ I just hate seeing people who’ve never experienced the true lore of The Elder Scrolls comment on here…

  • The Dragonborne

    Heh Shaved pussy ;).. have to admit she looks pretty hot without her furr * blushes* first time reader, and avid player of both oblivion and skyrim.. I wonder what would be Katia’s reaction if she were the dragonborn

    • Tristan

      She couldn’t be the dragonborn, Skyrim takes place about 200 years after Oblivion did and I believe the only dragonborns at this period was the Septim line.

  • Michael

    The tail-speaking was somehow a tad adorable. ^^

    Also, Quill-Weave pulling up her frills was a funny little thing to throw in there.

  • Edmond Dantรฉs

    A slave trick you say, that’s a neat trick. I really love all the things you add to the TES world regardless of being canon or not.
    Also shaved Katia looks like a fun trauma to go back too, eventually.

  • Lineo

    this morse thing was really cool.

  • Hiccup

    Luckily, you know an old trick (supposedly) created by Khajiiti slaves in Morrowind. Letโ€™s see if Quill-Weave knows it tooโ€ฆ

    >created by Khajiiti slaves
    >Khajiiti slaves

    I think you mean Khajiit

    • Kazerad

      It’s an adjective form!

      Thanks for keeping a typo eye out though.

  • PersonPerson

    Great page. The first panel had an interesting art style and the stealth morse code was an unexpected but interesting concept.

    Side note: Barber, Goblin, Necromancer.

  • dtlux14

    I love the code and last panel ๐Ÿ˜€
