I received my first private message here from a reader of Princess Quest, asking when the next chapter will come out. Of course I couldn't disappoint a "fan", so here it is!

In this fifth chapter you can see how the troupes journey across the Tiamat Badlands goes with the Nomad Elf Hawke as their guide. Princess Beatrix even gets to test her new sword Victoria in battle, although it won't be what you might expect...

If you haven't read the previous chapters, you can access them quickly right here:
Chapter I: Chivalry
Chapter II: Legends & Legacies
Chapter III: Fellowship
Chapter IV: Passings

And now onto the next chapter!

As you might notice, this chapter is somewhat shorter than the previous ones, and it didn't feature Fabuland as promised. The thing is, I meant to add a few more scenes that I haven't shot yet, but then I realized it would make this chapter overly long, so I decided to save them for the next part.

Also in the next part, the princess and her friends get to hear just what exactly are these Four Jewels they're searching for. Until then, keep those comments coming! I read each and every one of them, and so far I've gotten many great tips on how to improve this comic! So thanks for those! :wub:

I believe it is meant to emulate Final Fantasy more than anything else.  :wink:

That's pretty funny. Seems like Hawke's made quite an influence, no? The Final Fantasy portion was pretty funny, too. Keep up the awesome work and I'll keep up the awesome reading.  :tongue:

I don't think I've commented on this since your first or second chapter, but I am really liking this comic. This chapter was funny as usual, and the photography is even better than before! I'm looking forward to the next installment!  :laugh:

Gah! Where'd all these new chapters come from? Man, I sure was way behind in the story....  :wacko:  :tongue:

Man, this comic is REALLY good. You've managed to balance character development, action, legend, and humor so well - and the scenes and picture quality is just as good. Hehe, I love the battle in the latest one.  :laugh:

Can't wait to see more!  :wink:

I loved the battle scene. Can't wait for the next issue.

I'm not sure about using Native Americans as elves, though.
Just returned from a 3 or so year dark age, so just getting back into the swing of things. :)

Another good chapter :classic:

A nicely balanced mix of character development, plot progression and humour. The battle scene is hilarious, even though I'm not a fan of Final Fantasy, well done! :thumbup:

And I think the Native Americans works quite well as elves. So now I'm anticipating the next chapter, guess you can call me a fan too :blush:

If we were talking about the traditional wood-dwelling type of elves, I'd agree with Norrington, but these are a tribe of nomadic elves living in a wasteland, so a bunch of green-clad Robin Hoods would really be out of place there. The Native American figs were the closest I had for nomads, anyway.

But worry not, there are also wood elves living in the world of Princess Quest. You'll learn more about the difference of the tribes probably in the next chapter. :wink:

Oh yes, and the battle was definitely a Final Fantasy mock-up. I don't think I'll use it in the upcoming chapters, though, as all the little blue windows were really time-consuming to make. :tongue:

Awesome Comic so far, (I just found them  :blush: )

Love the battle scene, reminds me of my younger years. Stupid Aging...  :angry:  :laugh: (if not for the fact I'm 23  :laugh:  :laugh: )

As for the Native American figs as Elves, as long as you keep away from the Native American heads for Elves, they look un-lego-ish (because of the noses)

Love the story so far, my favorite character being Sir Brickheart.

Also your Cargo horse is  :wub: I'm gonna have to steal that one  :devil:  :laugh:

Look forward to the rest!  :thumbup:

Heheh, Britney Twospears. :laugh: Another wonderful chapter, Sandy! I love the scenery here, those cliffs are neat and the bones lying around make it looks so much better, so much more evil, or rather, hostile... :devil: Really looking forward to Part VI!
Oh yes, and that battle scene was great! :laugh:

Nice addition, Sandy. I like the FF battle, very funny (although I've never played the games). I really like where the development of the characters and story is going, as well as the comedy, great job!
