Pewfell is a semi-autobiographical, epic fantasy, situation-comedy, webcomic series. It is set on the post-apocalyptic, medieval world of Urf in the far distant future. It stars irresponsible and mostly-useless wizard Pewfell, his incredible warrior wife, and the annoying little gnome who squats in their sideboard. Pewfell’s a bit of a slacker who eeks out a living selling potions and doing all he can to avoid going on adventures. Some of my inspirations for Pewfell include the comic strip work of E.C. Segar, Goscinny & Uderzo , Gilbert Shelton and the books of the, apparently not in-fact, immortal Terry Pratchett.
The hero of these tales is an extremely useless wizard who never officially graduated from sorcery school.
2. Tina the Warrior Princess
Pure of heart and valiant of spirit, Pewfell’s wife was raised to hold her own among the rough and unwashed Nordic warriors of her father’s clan.
This small, blue pest squats in Pewfell’s basement and does all in her power to make him miserable.
Pewfell’s college roommate was partially turned into a toad in his magical resistivety finals. Lillypad now works as restaurant critic for the Spirekassle Gazette.
5. Podrick and Pankratz
As infants, Pewfell and Tina’s twin boys were accidentally placed inside a powerful magical artifact known as the ‘Thrones of Chaos’. The wizards at the university say they should be fine as long as they keep taking their pills.
Tina’s steed and household pet is an affectionate vegan wyvern.
7. Bish Bathenwell
Cyborg cleric devoted the goddess Hornbag, an obscure deity that no-one else has ever heard of. Though Hornbag appears to be a product of Bish’s deranged mechanical mind, his faith and it’s accompanying vow of chastity remain unshakable.
8. Pedwyn, Alias: “The Jackal”
Pedwyn is a free spirit who loves life and loathes only boredom. Though he believes himself to be of good moral character, he often finds that crime is the most efficient way to earn a living.
9. Fug the Barbarian
Fug’s easy-going and peaceful nature is somewhat hampered by massively destructive fits of berserker rage that warp his body into a twisted and uncontrollable killing machine.
10. Kolin Kook
Bish’s loyal but hopelessly vacant acolyte.
Landlord of Pewfell’s local, the Hog’s Nuts Sports Bar and Grille.
12. Petronio Politicus
Behind his foppish exterior, Pewfell’s attorney is devious, deadly, and completely untrustworthy.
13. Captain Radula
Long-suffering chief of the Spirekassle City Sewer Patrol.
14. Brother Bardy
A clerical cousin of Pewfell’s who serves as an acolyte in the Black Church of Baphommet, Devil Lord of the Twelve and a Half Hells and as bassist in a popular punk rock band.
15. Cuthpert Codpeace
