Whoa, they are still using vacuum tube tvs in that last one.  It is like being transported back in time to the middle ages.  And is that a VCR on top?  Holy cow!!!  that is vintage stuff there.

That one's still pretty skimpy. Look at her: openings EVERYWHERE you'd hit with an attack from a sword like the one she's holding.

Head: Naked
Collarbone: Cloth
Sides: Cloth
Hips: Cloth
Forearms(outside where you'd hit): Cloth
Joints: Cloth
Hands: Cloth

Only her shoulders, heart, and quads are protected from anything.

Wait, I made a mistake. That's not cloth it's a plate strapped on the back there. Okay, Slightly more protection on the arms.

I came in here to complain about the grammar in the comic (its for the possessive, gorrammit!), but I got distracted by all the wonderful ta-tas.

Thank you!

Ancient (male) warriors in Northern Europe went into battle naked. Often.

Yeah, but at least she wouldn't be chilly.

Anyway, this thread needs a link to Women Fighters in Reasonable Armor.

Isn't this a little too high up for a uterus? Stomach, maybe, but uterus?

Looks like she's getting ready for a meeting more than combat.  Most of that can be fixed mostly by putting on a helmet and strapping on a shield.  As for the collarbone, for a real armor set there would be chain under the cloth as well.  Armor has always been something of a competition between protection, weight, and heat management.

In short: not perfect by any means, but a much better try than most.

You're expecting logic for this?

You have seen a pregnant woman before, right? The uterus is up there, that's where the fetus goes. Also, I've seen my roommate once told me about this porn where you could see the guy's dick poking the inside of the stomach.

You know, i personally prefer fantasy chicks fully armoured like that instead of the 2 square inches of scalemail they usually get.

I dunno, something about going through the motions ripping all that armour off of her makes me drool....

doglover: FirstNationalBastard: It's the only way to get fanboys to buy anything with a female character, and make a publisher money.

What are you talking about? It's not like every female character has to walk around almost naked just to make a show popular. Just look at the success of MLP.


all they wear is a tattoo on their ass, or is that the joke?

Well, the uterus does serve as the factory for the most dangerous creature in the known universe.

Despite the eye-candy, it actually does a really good job of conveying the truth about how functioning BDSM relationships work.

Great.  Wonderful.  Now I'm reading Sunstone AGAIN!

It's very good :)

When women's romance novels and manga stop featuring scantily-clad males on the cover, they can resume complaining about skimpy costumes in comics and video games.

Until then, kindly shut up. We all like some skin, and no gender gets left behind.

I just finished Half-Life 2 & the two chapters.  Dammit, I want to finish the last chapter, but THEY DIDN'T PUT IT OUT!  Worst cliff-hanger EVER.

\Also, HL2 crashed on me every 5 minutes or so.  Still finished it.
\\Lost Coast should have been longer.
