This page made me sad. Poor Lapha.

If you’re wondering how she went from flame thing hovering in a circular thing to guttersnipe, well, eventually someone went to check on her parents and found her. She was given a children’s starter body (Aetholiths don’t mentally start as infants, but it depends on how their parents’ initialize their starting configuration.) And then she was put in “the system,” with which she had mixed experiences, like a lot of kids. From there it’s the usual story, in and out of homes, time spent scrounging on her own, eventually tracked down by a relative of one of the parents who ultimately resented Lapha for the death of said parent, tries to get grabby with teenage her in some twisted “no free lunches” lesson, she fends him off with a pipe-wrench, winds up on the run with a record, blah blah blah, gets a job on a spaceship, travels the galaxy, learns all about smuggling contraband and altering inventory records, gets away with minor larceny 4 times out of 5, on the run again, falls in as the chef and assistant quartermaster for some mercenaries, etc.

The new vote incentive is up! This is a bit of a weird one as it’s a character that hasn’t appeared in the comic.

It’s my Ifrit Pathfinder 1e monk, Fray! Ifrits don’t really make great monks in Pathfinder, as player characters they get a +2 to Dex and Cha, but -2 to Wis. For monks, Dex is good, Cha is largely irrelevant, but Wis is important as it can add to your AC and also has something to do with Ki points I think. But I didn’t care. I wanted a character with dark blue/gray skin and glowing orange hair, so that’s what I picked. (I don’t think Ifrit even really have dark skin, so maybe she’s 1/4 Drow? Don’t care. I think she looks cool.) Will she show up in the comic? I mean… maybe? Probably in a Dabbler flashback, but who knows?

As usual, Patreon has her in delicto flagrante.
