Guest Author's Note: "Tell us of a time when the weather mattered, particularly if it was at all under the control of the Pcs. I'll go first: 'It was a dark and stormy night, but we all had night vision and we were counting on the rain to put the fires out, not to mention wash the dust out of the air.'"

Newbiespud's Note: Though they have individual titles, this last set of guest comics is a four-page series!

Digo Dragon
During a particularly difficult battle with a red dragon, two spellcasters decided to summon some fierce storms with their magic. One created a Windstorm to keep the dragon grounded, the other used Call Lightning to zap the dragon. They had some pretty bad results however...

A windstorm strong enough to ground a large dragon is also strong enough to throw human-sized PCs across the battlefield. So the party is now all prone to the dragon's melee attacks. Secondly, despite the disadvantage of the dragon's large size, the druid's tiger was struck with the random lightning bolts. Every. Single. Lightning. BOLT.

The dice apparently demanded a sacrifice that night, and they had a taste for feline. O.o

Well if all of the characters (minus the dragon) were being thrown all over the place by the wind then technically the Lightning never struck the same place twice as the tiger was most likely in a different place each time it got struck. :3

FID is getting into more and more episodes that I never thought would lend themselves to FID.

The magic of "out of context". Anything can be taken out of context to be anything else.

"Out of Context" is especially magical when applied to RP quotes.

I took it as a personal challenge to do an episode that wouldn't normally work. (Because it's material that won't conflict with NS's work, and thus won't inconvenience him.)

It's just 4 strips, as opposed to how much he can mine out of an episode. Had I known he only had 8 guest strips, I would have made more...but as it happens, I did half of the break, so perhaps that's well enough.

(BTW, I noticed he was complaining about quality from some authors, but apparently I've worked out a way to make strips of sufficient quality. Anyone who would like to learn my method, for the next hiatus or for your own purposes, contact me on FIMFiction.)

What is the one thing no one should ever say in front of your character, and what happened when someone said it last?
Me:When someone calls him blind in the bad way, and the last person to said that, let's just say his chance of making babies went up in flames.
