  1. “Your family line ends HERE!”

  2. Oh shit! :-S

  3. Yeah, he felt that one

  4. If Arrogand lost his sword coming down he has bought time for himself, if he didn’t lose it, Pontagar is in serious trouble.

  5. My meat n 2 veg just retracted in sympathy…

    Eli…

  6. THE GRANDKIDS! You fool, what about your grandkids!? He hasn’t given you any yet!

  7. Apparently, “Dirty” is the only way Arrogond knows how to fight. Pontagar had better put that sword straight into his chest, or he may never stand a chance of recovery. He still has it over his head, so he just has to point it down.

  8. Y’all, that hit him in the ass and back. Look at where pontagar is standing over arrogond. The angle of arrogonds kick wouldnt bit the jewels.

    1. I’m with Icekat001 and Ladyofthemasque on that one. Definitively a hit but not a crit. I would submit Pontagar will complain about pain at about the middle of his spine though, as while not specifically pointed the boot is still directing force to one point, ergo much pain!

  9. Exactly what Icekat001 says. It’s not a hit to Pontigar’s family jewels, because there is literally no way that Arrogond could turn to get into position without running afoul of Ponty’s legs. Admittedly, Arrogond ain’t got pointy knee armor on or even pointy ridged metal shin guards (from what we can tell), though those boots might be ridged enough with scales for all I know to do some damage…but I doubt it, since it just looks like a good stiff boot leather with a wool padding. But it can still hurt, and knock a person off-balance if you strike them at just the right/wrong moment.

    …Honestly, Pontigar’s greatest mistake has already happened. He’s challenging his father in private, and if anyone comes in, especially if Ponty gets incapacitated, his father can lie (why not? he’s already proposed crawling back to lick Shuach’s fecal expeller) and proclaim Pontigar is the traitor. He should have made this confrontation much more public, because it’s clear Arrogond isn’t a true Erogenian anymore, and WILL lie, cheat, and even murder his own son.

    1. Admittedly Arrogond could have lied anyway and proclaimed his SON was lying, and it’d be a case of he-said-no-he-said…but at least there’d be DOUBTS in the minds of the Fire Tribe with a public declaration of dishonor. I’m genuinely worried that if Daddy-Shuach-est here wins, it’ll take the Fire Tribe totally in the wrong direction, and nobody else will be strong enough to take him down one-on-one…and Erogenians don’t exactly strike me as the “we must ALL cut him down” types, even in moments of direst cultural emergency.

  10. I find it hard to believe that somebody that highly skilled in one-on-one combat would leave themselves that exposed.

    1. Not so sure, the fire tribe are famously arrogant; and while the old man may be a hair past his prime, he defiantly no slouch.

  11. Well, I’d say that even if Arrogond does kill Pontagar, he isn’t out of it yet. I mean, just the day before he celebrated the hero’s return, and now he’s killed the hero? I fail to see how he could spin that to make it look like he’s innocent. (But then, it wouldn’t be the first time JED pulls something that I never saw coming.)

    Also, going back to make sure there was indeed a hero’s welcome, I noticed I had forgotten that there was someone else here the day before ( http://barbarianprincess.com/comic/a-wise-father-page-1193/ – I don’t remember how to make hyperlinks in these comments, sorry ), someone so secretive they don’t even have a tag. Maybe that person can help Arrogond explain the situation to the tribe. Maybe they can’t, or wouldn’t. If they still are around and see commotion, I guess they won’t be staying. The one thing I’m worried with, come to think of it, would be for Pontagar to best the king, not yet kill him, only to be stabbed in the back by whoever.)

  12. Damn it Pontagar, we just started liking you! Which, I think, means the odds are against him.

  13. Cultural emergency? This is national emergency, for all of Erogenia.

  14. @Shyster
    How come? The odds are not particularly favourable to his father than to himself.
    Both are really experienced fighters, eager and willing, well muscled, resilient.

  15. @Reservist: You’re entirely right as far as in-world logic is concerned, but I think Shyster was using narrative logic: a secondary character who goes from hateful to likable is more likely to meet his demise.

This year we are once again participating in a sexy web comics promotion.  We have a nice little pinup most of you would enjoy, and links there for a lot of other folks’ comics and sexy art:

HELP AUSTRALIA NOW

My people, this is a global ecological emergency.  *All* of us need to pitch in as best we can.

So if it helps you get motivated,  then Zona, Mentl and all their friends are willing to bare it all for you to get the resources where they’re needed.  Send me an email with a forwarded receipt or screen grab of an Australian 10 dollar (or above) donation and we’ll send you a nice sexy pic of the “Challenges of Zona” character of your choice.

I chose these two organizations as being the ones that will help the wildlife and the people, but I am willing to accept any proof of (recent) donation to any accredited relief organization dedicated to assisting with the fight against these horrific bush fires Down Under.  


I’m a Californian, and I have seen my share of nasty wildfires, even more and worse in recent years. The Australian fires make anything I had to be evacuated from seem like a grease fire in my kitchen.  If you think you are safe from the effects of this disaster because you live on the other side of the world, think again.  This is worse than any fantasy world-beater my imagination could come up with.  I have given and will give again.  

For those of you who just like to click: 

WWF: 

https://www.wwf.org.au/#gs.razbkt

Red Cross: 

https://fundraise.redcross.org.au/drr



I’ve given and will give again next paycheck.  How about you?

Warmest regards,

JED

Zona G8 Mk2

Just at the moment, we’re temporarily stalled on the animation project. So we’ve taken advantage of the lull to revisit the Gen 8 model of Zona, and I think this time, even more than last, we’ve hit it on the head. So Brian came up with a couple of pinups of her of which this is a closeup. If you want to see more (much more) become a Patreon patron at https://www.patreon.com/JEDraft

Warm regards, all!

R.I.P – P-Chan

My heart is heavy tonight. We had to say goodbye to my dear constant companion and the inspiration for all the black cats in “Challenges Of Zona”, my beloved friend, P-Chan.
He was very old and finally was very confused and in great pain. So we eased him into Summerland Thursday evening.
Nonetheless, he’s still there in the past and in my memories, and in Inky and in Incus and in the one-eyed winged cat from the Otherwhen. (Yes, long-time readers will remember when he lost his eye to an abcess, years ago.)

He was a very very very good boy.

Warm regards,
JED

RIP, Peter Tork.

When the world and I were young, just yesterday
Life was such a simple game a child could play

It was easy then to tell right from wrong
Easy then to tell weak from strong
When a man should stand and fight
Or just go along

But today, there is no day or night
Today, there is no dark or light
Today, there is no black or white
Only shades of gray

I remember when the answer seemed so clear
We had never lived with doubt, or tasted fear

It was easy then to tell truth from lies
Selling out from compromise
Who to love and who to hate
The foolish from the wise

But today, there is no day or night
Today, there is no dark or light
Today, there is no black or white
Only shades of gray

It was easy then to know what was fair
When to keep and when to share
How much to protect your heart
And how much to care

But today, there is no day or night
Today, there is no dark or light
Today, there is no black or white
Only shades of gray
Only shades of gray…

Valentine’s Day Sex Drive 2019

I was approached by some of my fellow Webcomic creators about a Valentine’s Day cross-promotion where we create sexy images of our characters and put them out there along with everyone else’s for Valentine’s Day.

“Sexy stuff!?” I cried, aghast, “With Zona? Heaven forfend!”

But after a little persuasion, I decided to go ahead and put one out there. Follow the links and see mine and everyone else’s.

Happy V-Day all!

Warm regards,

JED

GRAND ANNOUNCEMENT- ZONA ANIMATED

Over the past year, my Patreon patrons have been generously giving me money to pursue my vision of an animated web series based on The Challenges Of Zona.  In return they get early updates, desktops and other fun stuff.   But all of it has had one goal.  And we have just passed the first milestone on the way to that goal. I have just made the first payment to a talented young animator who is contracted to produce a 61-second fully animated trailer for The Challenges Of Zona. We’re both really enthusiastic and I have high confidence that, within the next month or two we will have something to show folks that we’re serious about bringing a new fantasy phenomenon to the web. I needed all of you, patrons and fans alike to support me in this and you have not disappointed.  Eventually everyone will see the end product, but Zona’s patrons will be in on all the latest updates, new character models, tests, renders and everything as it happens, plus any other extras we can give in humble gratitude. So be not shy.  And, if you can, buy into the future of fantasy entertainment.  one dollar, five dollars -ten or whatever you can afford.   You won’t be sorry!  This is happening! We’re doing it.  We’re moving forward.  We’re bringing Zona to life. In the word of the great Stan Lee: EXCELSIOR!! Watch this space! Warmest regards, JED   https://www.patreon.com/JEDraft

Patreon: Sexy Sunday Update

You remember when our intrepid adventurers were stranded in Hollywood, California for awhile and the bored Zona would spend her time in the pool?  Well sometimes she would forego the bathing suit.  And your faithful storyteller did record the event. My generous patrons at Patreon can see the whole thing in a high resolution desktop. Do subscribe if you can, not just for the boobs and fun stuff, but to help Zona get to our goal and make an animated demo which, naturally, my patrons will be the first to see!   Warmest regards,   JED
