    Just how much did it cost to have the temple imported to the states?

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      If you have to ask you can’t afford it.

      • Silly Zealot

        Uhh… over $9000?

        • jamie johnson

          ah-ha! I see what you did there :3

    • Z24

      more than a chocolate-covered Egyptian mummy, but less than a washing machine for washing machines.

      • Anubis

        I’ll have you know that covering a mummy in chocolate isn’t exactly easy.

    • cheetahwolf

      it dint cost a thing, pete put it there 1,000 of years ago. or something like that.

    • redwolfmatt

      i feel that this is a question fit for the xanatos corporation to answer.

      • Whiskers

        +awesome points for Gargoyles reference

  2. Xane

    Roll the dice to see if I’m drinking Ferretone!

    • Salenstormwing

      Mmmm, Ferretone. The Mountain Dew for Ferrets.

  3. GarrisonSkunk

    Yea Sabrina!

    • cheetahwolf

      she’s a witch!!! well, she already have the black cat. ;)

      • i like your hat

        i don’t believe in black cat bad luck. :D

  4. IceKitsune

    lol I love the get up XD

  5. Zaitsev

    Keene needs to get into it if he wants the help.

    • ben'e

      i know right, i mean have you ever played a game of D&D without a bard? it aint easy!

  6. Cristian100n

    Wait am i the only one here who doesn’t know what a “Bard” is?

    • Zaitsev

      It’s a musician, also a class in Dungeons And Dragons.

    • GameCobra

      Tellah’s greatest enemy. The Spoony Bard.

      But in all seriousness, they play music. Usually giving passive benefits or negative ones.

    • IceKitsune

      A class the specializes in Music based magic, basically.

      • Perrin

        i know very little of D&D, but i do know of Bards.
        a character i used to love in a book i read was a bard.
        ^3^

    • D-Rock

      Don’t worry, you weren’t alone.

    • Keldor

      Shakespeare is known as “The Bard”.

    • Keeshah

      A Bard tells the story of your exploits, usually in song..

      In midevil times, they were like the newspapers of the day.
      They would go around telling of what happened in distant places, how the crusades were going, what towns were effected by plague and so on.
      Again in song to keep the attention of the people, news and entertainment in one package.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        “Brave brave Sir Robin, he bravely ran away, away! When danger reared it’s ugly head, he bravely turned his tail and fled…”

        • silverfang16

          That’s why you never ticked off the bards.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            In the frozen land of Nador they were forced to eat Robin’s minstrels. And there was much rejoicing.

          • silverfang16

            Yaaay.

          • ToaSoul

            and thank god for that

          • Ryu

            Sweet! Xd

  7. Billy MT

    Keene as a bard? That’s just spoony

    • Keldor

      Bards are known for their charming personality… Hmm, Keene’s much too loud and prickly for that…
      They are known for their musical ability… I doubt Keene plays any instrument or can sing…
      Bards are also great story tellers… There’s no way Keene has enough patience for anything like that…
      Bards also… Hrmm… Ok, you’ve got me.

      • SecretAgent000

        Bards are physically weak-Keene has that much!

  8. Verp

    I am curious if Pete’s temple has defenses against raiders working for the dragon.

    • LupisLight

      Wait, I was under the impression that this might be the dragon’s temple. Pete’s temple is the one in the woods he got released from a while back, right?

      • Keldor

        Given that this is the Milton estate we’re talking about, “out in the woods” could very easily be on the property.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        This is Pete’s temple, Dragon’s is “the one left behind”.

  9. GarrisonSkunk

    Keene answers the door himself? Where’s Jeeves?

    • Frank

      I’m guessing it’s like when someone else answers the phone, then says “it’s for you”

      • GarrisonSkunk

        I thought Keene would be the kind of Millionaire that would have Jeeves say “Sur will see you in the study, walk this way…”

  10. Gabe23

    Ooohhhh Keene, you dont wanna make Sabrina mad, you better be the bard

  11. The Maverick Man

    Nobody ever picks the bard, EVER

    • Argent Stonecutter

      The ferret _has_ to be the thief.

      • Salenstormwing

        That’s profiling. And stereotyping. And as a ferret and a thief, I find it sad that people stereotype me, when I’m perfectly able to stereotype myself.

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Hey, I’m entitled to stereotype ferrets too.

          I preferred thief-mage split-class, myself.

          • Salenstormwing

            You know, I find fighter-thief split-class to be better if you don’t want to worry so much about the lack of real armor and the ability to specialize in stabbing folks. Also, you can get a bonus to using natural weapons like teeth.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            So you’re more Fafhrd than the Grey Mouser. Not very ferrety, that.

      • Frank

        With that kind of money? What’s his motivation? He should be the merchant at least!

    • silverfang16

      I like being the bard. :/

  12. Erikuto

    Flourentine Courtesan just says ‘bard’ for some reason (alt text)

    I like Sabrina’s hat :3

    • Erikuto

      Wait what’s a Bard supposed to do?

      • Oren Otter

        Well, he can swashbuckle, provided he has a steady supply of puns. Sometimes he also has a hand puppet with minor godlike powers.

        • Keldor

          …Clearly Karishad must be the bard then.

          • Rick Griffin

            Oh you don’t want to know what Karishad is going to be

          • GameCobra

            My guess is a Jester. He could also be a Merchant though.

          • Shuma Jindivi

            Karishad……a trapfinding rogue? …….who find traps by walking direct to them……wait that should be a barbarian?

            Anyway, I’m sure Rick has a surprise in store for us.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            “Because Nature has not burdened you with a sense of self-preservation.”

            “I get that a lot.”

        • Raska

          somebody reads OotS :P

      • Keeshah

        A bard tells the story of your exploits.

      • Salenstormwing

        What’s a Paladin?

        • Frank

          “any one of the 12 legendary knightly champions in attendance on Charlemagne.” –Random House Dictionary

          Wait, it wasn’t a serious question?

        • Dragongal

          In games, they’re usually holy knights, fighters of the undead. They specialize in light /holy attacks, and are excellent healers.

      • silverfang16

        Historically they spread news and artful stories/music. They were invited into courts to perform and often bribed to make certain people look much better than they really were. Game wise it varies.

        They usually have passive benefit or weakness abilities that are applied as long as they sing or play their instrument. Beyond that it varies greatly. Some games have them as really excellent swordsmen, some give them the ability to use illusion magic through their songs, and others give them the power to do things like call spirits through legendary stories or call on deity powers through songs worshiping them.

        I am not a nerd! >:(

      • Billy MT

        Cast Inspiration and double the allied unit’s overall efficiency for the next turn. Or also give them an extra act!

        [/RPG_nerd]

      • ManiacalMonotroopa

        Well if he’s the Bard of Rage…he kills all his friends

    • holmebrian

      sabrinas face in the 3rd panel is cute

      why does she remind me of peanut?

    • RJ

      ACII reference i believe b/c of the renaissance hat :)

  13. D-Rock

    So Tarot can’t defend a temple herself? Of course, that’s assuming it’s Dragon’s temple they’re talking about. Or Pete’s? That would make more sense.

    • Silly Zealot

      They are going to raid the griphon temple, but apparently she is too great to do it herself, so she sent Sabrina (not to be confused with the teenage witch) instead.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Plus, not only would it be cheating, it would be cheating.

  14. Marco

    Sabrina you look dazzling in that pointy hat! I love this comic so much! XD

  15. GameCobra

    Hmmm… A Black Cat with a Black Hat on. Tapping into the superstition side of magic, Sabrina? =3

    • GarrisonSkunk

      Or at least the stylish side. Black goes with anything.

  16. Keldor

    You can tell they’re the real deal since they’re wearing hats that aren’t made of paper.

  17. Shuma Jindivi

    Now they only need a paladin and a barbarian……I suggest Fido and Kevin. And a bag of dices.

    • silverfang16

      Meh, Fido can be the healer.

      • ToaSoul

        okay then who would be the paladin… Max maybe, King, no wait that would be cheating, not sure it could be Bino

        • silverfang16

          King was suppose to be a fallen paladin.

      • Shuma Jindivi

        ……I think paladins can do some healing?

        • silverfang16

          Not to the same degree.

    • Xane

      Sergeant Ralph would be the paladin, overly serious no-nonsense type. Fido would be the fighter and Kevin would be the tacklearian.

      • ToaSoul

        when you said Tacklearian i though of left 4 dead 2 and saw Kevin as the Charger

  18. darkgloomie

    What do you need LARPing for, when you got REAL temples to raid and adventurers to recruit?

  19. RedDwarfIV

    I wonder if Keene would rather do his adventuring wearing body armour and a Kevlar helmet.

    Plus sunglasses. Would not want to forget those.

  20. Corey

    I remember a DND adventure where we used a Bard as a trap detector. Thief checks for traps, looks safe, send in the Bard. Trap activated. Course, he survived everything we subjected him to, and eventually he was turned into a demi-god by a rune-circle. So the joke was on us, until he died shortly thereafter. In DND, wasn’t the bard an offset of the thief class? I can’t remember.

    • darkgloomie

      First edition bards were an odd class that required several levels in 3 different classes before you could begin taking levels in bard

      Don’t ask me more because that’s the extent of my knowledge…

      • Baxtrr

        Yeah, Bards in first edition D&D could be amazingly kick-butt characters, so much so that they got powered down a lot in subsequent editions. That’s also why they eliminated doubleclassing (as opposed to multiclassing).

        God I’m old.

    • Rick Griffin

      They were a sub-class of the thief in 2nd edition, but I think that was the only one that had sub-classes to the “main” four classes.

  21. GarrisonSkunk

    We’ll see if Keene’s willing to get this done bard none.

  22. GarrisonSkunk

    Contest suggestion for Rick: Offering an autographed copy of “Housepets! Can Be Real Ladykillers” to the person who comes closest to guessing the number of times the word “bard” is used in the comments section by the time it is finalized about a week from now. :)

    • ToaSoul

      guessing…..
      * rubs temples*
      * insert Rimshot*
      *add Laughter*
      ……2,397!!!

    • Dead Men Walk

      628 times (trying to be realistic)

    • Raska

      629 times (The Price Is RIght XD)

      • silverfang16

        630, have fun now. :P

  23. DanTwelve3

    Sabrina looks good in that hat.
    How many hats fit in a box ‘o strange hats?

  24. Dreziehn

    just to screw up the contest bard bard bard bird bard bard bard bird….brain teaser anyone?

  25. T-Squared

    Oh good, It’s time for King’s Quest! :D DD

  26. Sonic Fox

    Now you need a tank-er-paladin. :3

  27. FerreTrip

    *literally LOLs* Come on! Ferrets are NATURAL entertainers!

    • Keldor

      I doubt Keene would be happy to hear this.

  28. Argent Stonecutter

    Keene needs to be scratched behind the ears, that’ll settle him down.

    • Frank

      ‘might be hard to do with a hat like that on

      • ToaSoul

        well he would probably take it off anyways, so it would be easy to scratch him behind the ears!

      • Argent Stonecutter

        He’s not wearing it!

        • ToaSoul

          if he doesn’t want i will i looks like a very nice hat!

  29. FFail

    I posit that it says “bard” to you because of the influence of the Assassin’s Creed series of games.

    • ToaSoul

      i always kill those people… sorry Keene! your still awesome

      • RJ

        i just throw money and walk away angrily.

        • ToaSoul

          when im angry in assassins creed i go on a guard killing frenzy, its the easiest way for me

          • RJ

            hmm, good idea…

  30. Cheetah Kid

    I just throw gold to the bards cuz they look like they need it… ya punk :3 PS: BARD BARD BARD BARD BARD BARD BARD BARD BAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRD!… i’m done

  31. Thalateya

    Oooh, is this going to be a dungeons & dragons inspired arc?

    • Cheetah Kid

      mabey, but it could just be a reference…

  32. gameangel147

    Housepets has now become an RPG.

    • Keldor

      But will ther just end up larping?

    • Argent Stonecutter

      If there was an RPG with cel-shaded Housepets-style avatars, I’d be all over it… even if I couldn’t get past the intro stage.

  33. Dead Men Walk

    Wait is it just me or dose Sabrina kinda look like a dog in this strip?

    • Gypsyraccoon

      Fido must be rubbing off on her.

      • RJ

        Oh my GOD genetic mutation everybody RUN!!

        • ToaSoul

          in that case if Fido is rubbing off on her what about Spo considering he is constantly with Fido………. OH GOD !!!!!!!!!!!

          • GarrisonSkunk

            They say humans tend to look like their pets…maybe pets start to take on characteristics of other pets they regularly hang out with.

          • ToaSoul

            in that case… no wonder the animals are walking and talking like people!!!!

  34. DJ Nightfire

    Heck yea i would totally be Sabrina’s bard. Not only it a sweet job, but also easy XP. :)

  35. Tar Snowpaw

    I just found housepets yesterday, caught up and Excited to see more!!! I hope Keene plays nice so Sabrina don’t turn him into a toad.

    • Soren

      I found it to days ago, so with my average of four hours of homework, it took me until just now to read through everything. Best comic EVER! … Well maybe Calvin and Hobbes is better… Now of they could have Peanut READ Calvin and Hobbes…

      • GarrisonSkunk

        Welcome to the pack :) There was a Calvin and Hobbes dedication arc early on….http://www.housepetscomic.com/category/comic/thematic-arc-of-questionable-quality/

        • Tar Snowpaw

          Thank you for the welcome, I am so gonna read these as they come out . I love to keep up with awesome comics

  36. Stray Cat

    No one ever wants to be the bard “Can I actually do something now?” “KEEP SINGING, WORM!”
    Keene’s favored class as a ferret is rogue, but maybe he can start his role as cleric of Pete since he believe in Pete’s “vision” for man/animal reconciliation…which would complicate things when he realized Sabrina is actually on the other side. Karishad would of course be a wild mage, but since I doubt he knows magic he’d have to settle for the next most chaotic class, the world’s wussiest barbarian.
    Of course, I’m sure Fido will show up as a paladin in the right moment when it seems like all is lost for Sabrina’s party.

  37. IceKitsune

    I was just wondering something here, is Keene a Bard because Sabrina wants him to be for fun or is he a Bard because that’s what he would be if he was an avatar in the U&U game?

    • IceKitsune

      Also I’m guessing Sabrina is a Witch class because we can’t go without that pun. (also assuming psychic powers are generic in this world and can be used by anyone)

  38. FADFRANKIE

    I think Sabrina is soooooo cute with her pretty collar

  39. Frederick

    I really have absolutely no idea what is happening.

  40. Grip Moonwolf

    And Sabrina bravely ran away. Brave, brave Sabrina…

    • ToaSoul

      she would never do such a thing… now zack heck yah!!!
