Guest Author's Note: "For everything that magic has, there seems to be some level of 'You'll never get what you want.' There's always some amount of 'Be careful what you wish for,' or 'you don't really know what you want,' or 'you'll get what you need but not what you want.' It's not like magic-users are asking for much, just the ability to bend reality to their whim and conquer the incorporeal, and yet the universe always has to have a sense of irony about it. If the universe doesn't want wizards to put this parking lot on paradise, it shouldn't give them access to so many road rollers!

Ah well. At least there's always soup."

Or, to look at the sentiment in the AN from another perspective: As soon as you can do something, whether by might or magic, that just pushes back the boundary of what you *can’t* do. And just on the other side of that new ine will be that thing you always wanted to do but never thought to yearn for. Give a mouse a cookie…

Now I want to see a magic system that costs you head hair to cast spells. Does this make barbers the wizard assassins of the setting?

I find the way he's holding that rabbit almost above the cauldron of soup in the last panel a bit concerning...

Also, not having seen the original cartoon, I have no idea whether this guy is being visually coded as sinister or if that's a result of comic editing, or whether he's going to turn out to be good or bad, and it's all very interesting. I'm excited to see where this story goes.

In the previous panel, the rabbit is holding on to his arm for dear life.

In the original, the heroes were to know Venger by his white hare. They at first thought the DM meant "hair", and the wizard just revealed he was bald.

Of course, that is no guarantee of where this version will go.

This reminds me of a story a friend told about how the party was tasked to slay a "wight dragon" and they had prepared for the wrong kind of encounter.

That's a good one. Also terrifying when you consider the long list of things a draconic wight would be immune to.

I heard of a campaign that had a white dragon...with pink eyes. Turns out it was actually an albino red dragon

Well, since that's clearly a rabbit, not a hare, they should be fine. :) Thanks for the explanation!

Yeah a Soup would be good to recover any fatigue damage/points.
But it will be an rabbit stew?

Not something a rabbit wants to hear while standing next to a giant cauldron...
