Our friendly magpie was back today, foraging for worms and bugs in the backyard, with a new friend, a Pied Currawong.

Hey nerds! A lot of made-up fantasy worlds use ideas generated from real history, etymology, and philosophy. For instance, 'paladins' come from the concept of royal guardians of the ancient Roman 'Palatine Hill'... which were then molded into the stories of Knights of Charlemagne during the 12th century... and eventually found their way into every high fantasy setting, ever.

What are your favorite fantasy tropes that you'd like to see researched and explained in comic form?

I can tell my cat Lamy missed me because we just had a very long cuddle session. She especially enjoyed the gentle ear rub i always give, which i forgot to tell my sis about haha.
But yeah big protip; a lot of cats love it when you gently stroke the inside of their ears w your thumb. Its very relaxing for a lot of cats!
