    Looks like someone needs to send Scrab to mimic obedience school. Great job on his looks and I have a feeling Farron and Scarb will have a few more great adventures under their belts in the future.

    • Thunder

      You can’t expect him to jump straight into the action without having a little snack first. Who knows how long it’s been since Farron last let him out to stretch.

      • Regulos14

        Well Farron should carry treats or something with him, less collateral damage that way.

        • Thunder

          Does Farron look like the kind of rat to carry treats around with him? Or particularly care about collateral damage?

  • Gravedigger

    at least he’s scary and not just completely useless

  • So, are those moth eared tapirs or are the ears/antenna plant or feather based. I guess feathers would make more sense since the hind parts are more scaly… and, I must say,the mimic is an absolutely adorable gremlin like creature.

    • Phuufy

      Traygens (kind of horse equivalents in this world) are indeed anteater-tapir esque inspired.. but the “feathers” on their heads are meant to be antennae.. they are kind of inspired by moths too ^_^; Similar to how the Staggles are like ox-stag-beetle things.

      Scrab went through MANY designs.. originally just a mere hell-hound.. but took some more cat-dragon-wolf like design.

      • Gotch

        Looks like a gryphon without wings honestly.

      • Majinkoba

        Well I think he turned out great, just the right mix of scary and cute

      • somebodywhoknowsthings

        those noses remind me of the Shoopuff

  • Heh, should there be a manual with these critters? =^^=

  • Jack Mcslay

    he’s kinda cute

  • Majinkoba

    Awwww he likes Sesame

    • Alex Smith

      Who wouldn’t?

    • Stephen Gilberg

      I’m not sure if he’s petting her in panel 1 or just has his paw near her head. Either way, I understand her cute tail straightening.

      • Borderwolf

        I think he is petting her and saying “Hi cutie!”

      • Valkeiper2012

        and I thought it was the male who gets the stiffened appendage.

  • Alex Smith

    List of things I want (for myself, in real life) from this comic has increased (in no particular order):
    1. An Uber
    2. A mimic named Scrab
    3. A little assistant robot named Proto
    4. One of the female lead characters (I’m not picky)

    • Valkeiper2012

      Well, I know what you mean.
      I wouldn’t mind meeting Proto and discussing certain ‘upgrades’.
      As for the females…
      I’d also like to be with each of them, but for different reasons according to which one we speak of.

  • Alex Smith

    Farron: “Attack those bastards behind us.”
    Scrab: I’ll do what I want *gets shot with arrows and hit with magic*
    Scrab: I want to attack those bastards behind us.

  • Gotch

    Farron doesn’t have enough gym badges for Scrab to listen to him. Plain and simple.

  • Synigma

    OMG, that’s seriously one of the best ideas I’ve seen in a while… my next D&D game has to have a bag of holding that is also a mimic that guards itself from anyone but the owner. Obedience issues optional, but that would certainly add a level of fun to it…

    • Valkeiper2012

      You do DnD, I’ll do Pathfinder.

      I’ll also see about getting it into Traveller5

      • Valkeiper2012

        Damn.
        Traveller5 was damn difficult.
        Like decrypting a master-class code.

  • SgtBash96

    *Steam whistle* Okay, lunch time! X3

  • Shadowkey392

    RUN AWAY!!!!

    • Victor Masi

      then again, perhaps if we were to build a large wooden badger….

      • shamdon

        Ok someone get some wood nails and assorted tools and lets do this.

  • Shinigami65

    Guys, call me crazy but everytime I see this mimic, his design kinda reminds me of Toothless from How to Train Your Dragon.
    It’s crazy I know.

    • Stephen Gilberg

      I get that impression in some panels. In others, the face shape changes.

  • cr1ms0n t1ger

    Is it just me, or is the scary bag-monster-dragon-thingy aka Scrab cine of cute? And those mean guards attacking it for looking scary. Those bastards!

    • Valkeiper2012

      actually, the guards went from ‘scary’ to ‘scared’

  • GES280

    you have made an….. unwise decision.

  • Victor Masi

    I like the design of the creature. it looks a lot like the way i envision a monster known as the Tailypo…..people familiar with the ghost story that features said beastie will probably know what I’m talking about

  • Majinkoba

    I wonder what kind of yard sale Farron had to go to to get such a nice….scrab bag? eh eh

  • CinnamonSalve

    Well, now we know that Merchant-class adventurers gain a Mimic Familiar, hopefully the quest isn’t too hard.

  • I. M. Albert

    If it is a Mimic, it has probably been imprinted with some of Farron’s mannerisms. In this case, womanizing and slothfulness (no offense to sloths).

  • BluPhoenix

    Love the way Sasame looks! Great job on the page

  • Cory Tenorio

    They say pets take on certain personalities of their masters.

  • robert袋蟻食skitch

    What the heck do they feed mimics in UQland?

  • Mrstealth1993

    Oh its a mimic.

  • Borderwolf

    I think those guys are wanting some clean underwear to change into to. 😉

  • Welsh Rat

    I love how Mason reacts when Scarab starts eating the caravan in the middle frame.

  • Xaviour

    the mimic doesn’t look in raged to me. More like in heat. giving them guards a sultry look

  • David Bence

    awww the mimic bane of many an adventurer

  • Anomaly

    Oh, it’s a mimic. And a hungry one at that. I thought those things were mainly disguised as chests.

  • natchu96

    Normally, you run across treasure, try to open it, and get attacked by the mimic chest instead.

    You don’t just go out LOOKING for the mimic chest and take the thing home for self-defense purposes!

  • HUNRonin

    My god that Mimic is adorable.

  • Lunith

    I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before… Farron is a Packrat… :3

    • Phuufy

      Yep! That’s where we got the idea to make him a rat XD originally he was gonna be a dog.

      • Welsh Rat

        You’ve done us Rats proud, Ma’am.

  • somebodywhoknowsthings

    Aha! so it is a mimic. Funny thing is, I mentioned it might be a mimic several pages ago

    • Welsh Rat

      You mean everyone who’s said it since has been mimicking you? Even if they never saw your post?

  • Patrick Rosenheim

    Hey, found your comic this monday, and let me just say that, I love it! Can’t wait for more updates!

    • Phuufy

      Thanks! I’m so glad you like it – we are working hard on the next page as I type 😀

  • Dakota Miyamoto

    So Skidd, from what I can tell you seem to be the only author on the Katbox to converse with Riiser at length… I can’t really think of a question to ask about that
