What’s a firebreathing dragon to do when he squares off against a Norse god of fire?

Aah… prismatic spells… always so much FUN. Especially in the hands of a half-fey dragon. I have a feeling that Sif (PUPPIES!) will be as “charming” as usual. I think the great GG would have appreciated the tribute.
nice fail on concentration check at the end there….
lol, looks like the pookah transformed into whatever animals the dragon and loki are suppoused to be.
Great comic strip
Do not feed or annoy the Pooka.
Great comic strip!
Thanks for the comments everyone! Yep, prismatic spells are fun. I originally wanted to make that a “Prismatic Underwear” spell (and I can’t remember why I decided to change it).
@d peek – It’s nice to see people picked up on the reference for that little gag there at the end.
The draconic fey…summoning ketchup.
I will start off noting that this might just be my favorite webcomic ever.
GAAH. You were doing so well not messing up!
Loki is not a fire god, it’s a mistake Wagner did in the Nibelungslied. He confused Logi(who was an illusion- actually just fire itself) with Loki. Easy mistake, but critical. In actual battle, Loki preferred weapons over anything- he wielded a spear at Ragnarok.
Read the Utgarda-Loki story.
Frey is the norse fire god. The only other beings in the pantheon with a strong tie to fire are the Fire Giants- of which only ONE ever did anything of importance- Surtr, their leader, who ended the world pretty much.
We know he’s not a god of fire… and he knows he’s not a god of fire. It doesn’t mean he isn’t above letting others believe he is something he’s not. It’s very much in his nature. Especially in this situation where it’s easy for him to lie and not get burnt to a crisp. I mean, how many times have you seen him use any fire powers throughout the series?
Aah. I just read this, thought back to that “mischief” panel were he had flames in the background, and assumed you/Loki were serious here.
Shame on me.
I’m kinda of a Loki maniac (I read virtually everything I can get my hands on with him in it).
Best so far is Loki from Valhalla(a danish comic).
He doesn’t shapeshift, he uses suits to transform, but otherwise, he’s basically the mythological one- except with several buckets of sarcasm and a knack for getting himself in trouble. He’s also very dramatic and uses wide gestures.
The comic is pretty awesome alround. If you get the chance to read it, do so.
Part of my irritation comes from the fact that he steals Frey’s fiery entrance in nearly every series thanks to that.
touch of the old Terry Pratchetts there… those spell names were right out of the Unseen University grimoire! Pratchett, I think, would love Brathalla – there’s such a gloripous Discworld feel to it!
Would Bigby’s backhanded compliment be a reference to the Fables comic series?
