After a long journey into the woods to track down the legendary Green Knight, Jodoque will at last confront him in the first of a series of climactic scenes in the epic, year-long Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan storyline the Rite of Serfdom! With this confrontation, the series’ overarching Ã¼berstory will come full circle, for it was at the castle of the Green Knight that the Rogues originally gained their gang’s fifth member, the half-elven witch Kel, eleven years ago, and it is Kel who depends on the Knight’s testimony to get out of a jail in the Gnomian empire now!
The story so far:
Kel and Jodoque have traveled to the Gnomian Republic to return the Ancestor’s Bone, a relic that was stolen from there fifty years ago. Instead of a hero’s welcome, they get no end of trouble: Kel and her faerie half-sister Kangra are even arrested for complicity in the theft! It is up to Jodoque and Kel’s other half-sister Norla to summon the key witnesses whose testimony can get Kel and Kangra off the hook: the faerie Ottar and the legendary Green Knight.
About Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan:
Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan is an online fantasy comic. The main characters are a bunch of
no-goodniks living out in the sticks of the kingdom of Clwyd-Rhan around the year 1000, particularly the beer-swigging bandit Tamlin and the half-elven witch Kel. In their orbit, faeries, gnomes, witches, dragons, ravens and politicians often appear, and real magic sometimes rears its unruly head. However, Kel and her friends have so far resisted any offers to save the world with magical swords, and only reluctantly embark on quests, usually for beer, money or other tangible goodies.
The comic was started as a series of black and white small-press books as long ago as 1991, and one early adventure of Tamlin’s gang was published online at a long-lost University webserver between 1994 and 1996. A new online run started on July 1, 2000, and that is considered the official birthdate of ROCR.net. Some 700 installments of varying sizes and formats are in the archives at Modern Tales, the leading subscription site for professional webcomics.
