Without Tarot’s help, what other secrets lay within that ancient temple? o.o
And what does Pete wins by giving Zach those dreams ?
Its possible he doesn’t want Zach to get these dreams it could be an accident (like Pete is doing it subconsciously and doesn’t know) or they are meant for King or someone else and Zach is just getting them by mistake.
Or it may have to do with Zach releasing Pete from his imprisonment 3 years ago. In doing so might have left behind some kind of psychic resonance on Zach’s body. That might explain his visions the dreams he’s having about Pete lately?
Or Pete is looking for another avatar since he can’t have King.
Or maybe Pete is just playing his cards for finally getting King as his avatar
He can’t use Zach due to the cat dog limitation.
He can’t have Zach as an avatar, but he might still be able to use him in other ways. Perhaps have him as a ‘follower’.
Remember, whoever released him was supposed to get a power boost as an avatar. Zach’s gotten the power boost, but he’s got no idea what it is, what it means, or what to do with it…
So its likely that when he got that power boost it would have unlocked what ever his Avatar/Class powers where meant to be. The dreams could be a result of his powers and nothing to really do with Pete at all.
Maybe its a vision of the future or something like that and not a dream.
Well, it *was* Pete’s mana pool he got it from.
Well what I mean by “Nothing to do with Pete” is that Pete isn’t directly causing the dreams; like giving them to Zach knowingly. I agree that it could be why hes dreaming of Pete however.
Oh, no, I’m sure Pete would be mortified to learn about it.
@Garrison Skunk: He couldn’t use Joel either, but that didn’t stop him
Pete merely has to get Zach’s permission to turn him into a dog or a cat, or even set up a situation where it’s in his own best interest, so it’s not impossible for Zach to end up as Pete’s avatar.
Maybe a fennec so he can keep the long ears.
i agree with King Pin
THIS IS SO CONFUSING!
i barely remember any of this!
I thought they altered the rules so Pete couldn’t get another avatar through transformation.
No, they said he couldn’t transform someone against their will again… but King was stuck because weird time junk to undo the transformation was off the table.
No, it wasn’t because of weird time junk it was because Kitsune wanted Pete to do it, (because remember Dragon offered to change him back) and Pete wouldn’t, so he decided to just have him wait to the end of the game.
But, what if … Zach´s just a pawn in this chess
Its D&D not chess.
Both games have a King.
i see what you did there
who knows does any one else here wonder how fido and sabrina became a couple
In my case, Im not sure; but I am 95% sure that Tarot had something to do with it
Seems to me like a case of the extremely popular couple getting together, like the head cheerleader and the captain of the football team of a high school becoming an item.
Zach’s just gonna keel over one of these days
Alt text: You have really neat handwriting.
he really does, maybe if he didn’t they wouldn’t be able to copy it again.
if they could’t thats what the scanner is for!
This will be awesome for us readers…but it can only end poorly for Zach.
Karishad has some serious infiltration skills.
Of course he does, he’s a fox! We foxes have natural thief-skillz BD
He is a true NINJA!
Wonder if he still has the finger trap on from his last appearence. Its impressive if he somehow managed to get his paws stuck together BEHIND his back somehow.
As per “Fantastic Mr. Fox”, a good thief is just as good at getting /into/ traps as he is getting out of them
That will be interesting then, once the raid starts.
So will Zack and the fox dude be in the raid? I can see the fox as a thief/assassin but what will Zach be? Wizard maybe?
yes he does
Does Zach know Kardishad didn’t come from the forest?
seeing as Karishad has no collar and has the ability to break into his room as easily as every other woodland creature i’d assume not.
Oh, god. Say he’s not a Ninja… o_o
He’s not a Ninja. Any other requests?
If he´s not a ninja …. Maybe a very good 007 ?
Comes and goes of a dark shadow like Batman?
He likes his rabbits shaken, not stirred?
You sir win a cookie.
Say he’s not a fox =3
He’s not a fox. He’s a Karishad. There can be only one.
It that like a Ponbon? Or is that more like all members of the Danroo species automatically being Ponbon?
No I think Karishad’s more like Rei from NGE: Nobody Dies. Crazy + Awesome
*POKeMON MUSIC *
dun dun dun
a wild Karishad appeared.
The wild Karishad used annoy.
*Karishad steals Wallet*
“One girl in all the world” ~Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Zach looks like he’s doing a Jerry Lewis impression.
Well, that doesn’t really seem like a boring outcome to me… But then I tend to make sure that every game of Civilization winds up with every unit settled and the happiness index up as high as can possibly be sustained.
And the chess pieces begin to fall into place. Everyone ready to play?
Bring it on !
Does this mean King will be…? *broom’d for repeating an old joke one too many times*
i thought the universal game was d&d?
Ahhh! He’s doing it again! The fourth wall must remain unbroken! Bad Rick*! See panel 2 for my reasoning.
(*not really, but still!)
Dont worry! I have CANNON!!!
*breaks 4th wall with crappy reference*
I didn’t notice that at first, but you’re right, the ‘bubble breaks the border’ thing is pretty obvious clue I should have noticed (note: the fox also has the power to break the borders <.<)
Pete’s not breaking the 4th wall, he’s just monologueing. Antagonists do this all the time; it’s just one of those things.
Ok at this point I’m becoming convinced, that this is going to eventually end with King, Keene, Zach, and Karishad (maybe not him or maybe more) becoming some kind of anti-cosmic nerd force.
That sounds like a Spot (superdog) plot.
It would be nice to see Spot punch Pete right in the beak.
I’d like to see that illustrated in the style of “The Magic Pudding”.
And I may be the only furry in this forum who can take the book off the shelf and know EXACTLY what you mean, Arge.
amen to that
I am fascinated by Pete´s angry/evil face in 3rd panel, it is so … good
Pete’s certainly gone the gamut from Magical Friend in Grape’s vision, to real jerk dealing with King, then slightly bufoonish nerd defending himself and the Game, and now this.
What do you consider “this?”
Gabe23’s description of angry/evil.
He’s not angry, he’s jaded.
Exactly…he certainly seems to be a rollercoaster of emotions. What happenend between the end of the trial when he was full of glee and evil laughter (you yourself called him the King of Cool) and now?
He’s a transcendant manic-depressive type, like Q.
I guess it’s a good thing he only plays U&U with mortals then, rather then playing with existential crises like Q does.
how much of a coincidence is it that i was just drawing an anthro-fox character and when i pulled up housepets the first thing i saw was Karishad XD
As a detective i’m not allowed to believe in coincidences
oh yay a mystery! I’ll be Watson!
Come, Watson! The Game is afoot!
Hey, let me go, that’s MY foot!
come on let the ferret go!
Are ferret feet lucky?
heck yeah! i’ll get the chainsaw :3
i don’t think Argent would like that at all!!!
Stop it, I’m not a rabbit, and the game is not a foot.
you know what? i don’t need luck as a reason, I WANT YOUR FOOT!
this time i’ll use a hacksaw because you’re being difficult >:)
why must you constantly try to remove the foot of Argent.
it is by now a lost cause towards everything
Poor zach, he has enough already being the opener of ways
Karishad is gona drive him (more?) crazy
And don’t forget his having to deal with Tiger on a daily basis.
Tiger is not bad is just a little weird.
but youre right, maybe will be too much for Zach
Heh heh, Khaishad is back.
Oddly enough, this reminds me of how I often sneak up on my friends, to similar results.
Its one of those predator skills I sometimes forget to turn off and unintentionally get the same reaction from people.
I have that issue, too. From different people, too. Never realized how silent I was.
how did he get in Zach’s room in the first place?
the window oh course!!
*Shouts Karishad from behind shorty shortstop*
So is Pete talking about King?
No, Zach (the rabbit) is writing about the title the woodland creatures gave him for figuring out how to open the temple and seems to be getting some of Pete’s thoughts as a dream.
he just pushed a button, but i push buttons all the time but im not the Opener of Ways
So…. he’s TV’s Zach to Karishad’s Torgo?
So? You’re not George Jetson, either, and that’s all he does!
King and Bailey’s first year anniversary date is close?
Not until next month.
Assuming the comic time passes in ‘real time’.
Don’t forget Pete’s evil laughter when Dragon mentioned her.
the first time king met bailey was one my birthday… i feel so special: the one thing, besides his friendship with fox, that would make King want to stay a dog
a.k.a the only thing giving Pete the chance of king being his full avatar…. now i don’t feel so special….
It’s funny. Every time Karashad shows up, I get this headache. XD
I wonder what class Zach will fall into when he inevitably gets sucked into the temple raiding party.
wizard perhaps? I mean he is the Opener Of Ways.
That reminds me, Karishad’s definitely a Carneymancer.
Whatever he is, I think we can rest assured that Karishad’s class name will somehow be a pun.
“Hey Petey, boy…we’re getting a little wide around the ol’ wingspand, huh?”
“That does it! Out of my temple! Get out! Out!”
“Sheesh, whatta grouch!”
I’m thinking cleric. He already has a religious following, after all. Don’t high level clerics tend to become prophets?
Of course, there’s no way Zach’s a high level anything, so… Skipping steps is he?
Well, Karishad is Obviously the the Thief/Assassin. Whiteknight for Zach?
So is Pete unhappy that the temple is being raided? Maybe that will mess with his mana pool, if I remember what he said about it correctly.
Wonder if Zach is always on edge now.
Wasn’t Zach always on edge?
he probably on the verge of either a heart attack, please don”t let that happen, and a serious mental break down.
On the plus side he DOES have two lucky rabbits feet.
Well, yeh, he’s a _rabbit_.
well they aren’t working very well
I was responding to Garrison.
same i just clicked the wrong reply button
Regardless the mortals get their happily ever afters….hmm in that case then peanut and grape do get together eventually and fox and kings friendly relationship becomes stronger and fox forgives king if he finds out his true past and form hmm but we have to wait to see how it really goes down *sigh*
Peanut and Grape get together, so do Peanut and Tarot, and Grape and Max. Don’t try to figure it out, it’s ineffable.
Im a little intrigued by the line “Regardless what happens the mortals get their happy-ever-afters” … So no matter who wins “The Game”, all the mortals are going to win ?
I thought that was Pete somewhat jealous of mortal’s statis. Mortals can have happily ever afters, but by definition immortals can’t have happily ever afters since they don’t have ‘ever afters’, the term requiring (or at least implying) an eventual ending.
Wow … really nice point of viewing
Why do I have the feeling that Karihad is a harbinger of Chaos? ewe
Because Karishad IS the harbinger of Chaos…
……I don’t get it.
i need more, i wana read a lot more….
someones “COPYING” his journal?? it possible that Zach is the reincarnation of Keene’s dad. The Thomas Milton??
No, hes talking about the forest animals the worship him taking his journal to read it as some kind of holy text.
This was shown at the end of the Water Balloon War arc. The raccoons borrow it and apparently return it the next day.
They don’t “borrow” it, you don’t just “borrow” a holy relic. Clearly they transcribe it into illuminated manuscript.
An illuminated manuscript, you mean like a Kindle Fire?
Only when the backlighting is on.
hey Garrison can you read the part where the Opener of ways is kidnapped by the forces of evil again@!!!
So… tell me if this is crazy… but is Karishad the Kitsune’s avatar?
Nah, he’s just a part of a complex metaphore created by mortals… He represents a personification of the forces of chaos.
Normally that would be an otter, but the zoo got them mixed up.
(BTW, shouldn’t this be arc titled “Legends of the Lost Temple”? XD)
I was thinking “Raiders of the Lost Temple”
or “Raiders of the Lost Arc”
“Lost Arc”… Does that mean we’ll finally find out what happened when Bino lost his collar?
um…. maybe do you think the sensor bar will be there!
after all “he is very macho behind that sensor bar.”
Who else but Karishad? *Shrugs while grinning*
Remember that the original avatar was to be a “DREAM SUNDERER”…
“So do they sunder using dreams, or do they sunder by means of dreams?”
I guess its possible that Zach is also a Dream Sunderer like Fido Grape and Peanut. That is kind of a lot of Dream Sunderers in one place though, kind of a massive coincidence. However its likely, if that is the case, Pete may have “summoned” them here some how.
I have the feeling that the list of classes is far to vast to fit into something as crude as a book, so the chances of there being two pets in the same class is rather slim. And let’s not even get into the matter of prestige classes….
that was Grape right?
Don’t read over his shoulder.
Ridiculously, Ultimately, yet Detrimentally Exciting?
Really Under-Developed Exposition.
Yay, Zach is back! Lol unintentional rhymes FTW! XD He really DOES have neat handwriting!
any one here think peanut and grape should become a couple?
Nobody ever thought of that before. Never.
i totally agree
I’m rooting for a Peanut/Sabrina coupling myself. That whole elevator scene during the “Snowed In” arc…..so much romantic tension!
But it got very awkward very fast!
Only for Sabrina. I don’t think Peanut even noticed.
i can see that but peanut would then have top deal with fido.
who else is excited about housepets thrid book coming out i love the cover so funny!
why do i feel like the only one who has no clue what dungeons and dragons classes are
your not alone… but thats what the internet is for!!!!
sometimes i feel i have to look up D&D stuff just to get headway around here :/
i feel the exact same thing
It makes me feel weird that i have to look up the game though
Oh that Kerishad
Not shure… but is Karishad an avatar to the Great Kitsune / is it the Great Kitsune?
Being a fox matches…
anyone think Pete is going to try to make Zach his avatar?
does anyone here right any fanfiction just curious?
i know some one who does.
Does that count?
