I was going to call it Where is the Monster? because I'm so sick of the exclamation points.
The old name was Twocoo. The avatar is the scariest thing in Wizardry I, circa 1981.

No words. Just pure awesomeness.
Using her tail to distract Kore and lightning bolt him? omg!!!!!
But then, I'm still scared. Cuz she just...lightning bolted Kore.

Glad to see he broke one of his axes. Just hope Kin has her out planned, she's gotta be steps ahead.

I hadn't realized that the Psionic-based body parts were THAT strong. But, looking back at http://goblinscomic.com/comic/09172014, I now see that Kore first broke his axe on Forgath's beard. The Maze of Many was very good to Kin and Forgath.

Third level spell, so she's at least 5th. Depending on what she follows up with we should be able to narrow it down still further.

Hopefully she has a lot f combat experience under her belt. I see him pulling out that other axe or his crossbow and going for her body because doing anything to her tail is a no-go unless he has some sort of spell that would get rid of her tail.

The whole point of that feature to Psimax's gears was so that he would never lose the same body-part twice; and the Kins noticed right away that replaced tissue is near-indestructible.

Here I was trying to figure out all sorts of scenario's for her next move, and it shames me to admit that I never thought of using her tail as a diversion. And yet, it makes so much sense. With all that metal he carries, hopefully there's a stunning effect attached to that lightning bolt, and she can control the next round. If Kore manages to make a move early, it's gonna get ugly.

KinÔÇÖs a smart girl. I think she already has the next five moves planned out.

Just wondering... isn't Kore a dwarf? His hand appears to be bigger than Kin's entire head in this update. And in the last, he towered over her, looking to be about 8-9 feet tall.

Again nice work with the plot,the graphics, and the mechanics. We do know that Kore is a stupendously old and capable anti-paladin (*) with enormous experience in combat by him self. I would imaging that his damaged armor is pretty bad by his standards, and having smashed axes, that is meaning his available weaponry is getting degraded, Next we might see the arrows, and magic shield should fix that .. but we also have the prospect of a python like squeeze with an invulnerable tail. Very tasty update. Thanks Tarol!

I've just had a horrible thought. What if Kin actually manages to kill Kore, but acquires his curse as a result?

This is a very fine prediction of future story-line, and could fit with the interpretations of the prophesies (all the love-hate-serpents-prey palaver).
Now say it isn't so, I don't like it.

Yeah that has really been bugging me. Unless she was shrunk in the maze this will continue to bother me.

Well, Kore is unusually large for a dwarf. If you check his fight with Forgath, Kore is noticeably taller. And Kin is probably making herself seem extra short in order to hide her tail. But I agree that his size seems a little exaggerated in these pages in order to make him look more threatening.

I don't want Kin to die!!!!! I am so scared right now. Although she is a BA for attacking Kore like that.

I'm only surprised she didn't try telling him the honest fact that she really doesn't like being touched and that's why she passes on this traditional custom. It's not a lie.

Besides Kin hiding her tail (and remember she has to get it behind Kore without him noticing, so she'd be extra short), Kore's usually shown at a low angle looking up for this exact reason, to look bigger than he really is to look extra intimidating.
