i’m guessing a beast net would let her capture it.. and maybe tame it?

Correct, I figured most people could figure that out on their own, and it doesn’t make sense for her to think “Oh i should have brought a beast net! That item would have allowed me to possible capture and tame the creature!” it would be like me thinking “Well I finally finished this comic. A comic is a collection of images and text to tell a story!” I just have to hope people think “Is that like a pokeball type item or something? Sounds like it’s a pokeball like item…” XD

I was thinking she’d just drag it back to show him, it never occurred to me that it was a “Pokéball-type item”. Then again, I’ve never played a pen-and-paper RPG before, and I don’t remember throwing nets to tame things during my brief time with WoW.

In real DnD (and Pathfinder), taming is typically reserved for specific classes. Actually, Its just Rangers who take Beast Mastery(think WoW) as their Archtype(specialization) at 3rd level. http://engl393-dnd5th.wikia.com/wiki/Ranger
You can also cross class to get this as well.
Druids get more nature based familiars like living brambles.
Fun Fact, I cross classed as a beastmastery ranger/ druid and ended up, thanks to my DM, with a housecat sized and shaped mess of brambles. It liked to sit on peoples laps at a campfire(and did damage while doing so).
Anyway, to end this rather long-winded reply, It typically requires a specific class/skill combination unless you take a spirit bond mechanic into effect, so the net is probably enchanted.
To Lorde Sage, I apologize for this. My inner nerd was triggered to start thinking once more, and I enjoyed it far too much.

She is evil. Also pretty she you need a specialty saddle for a wolf. So its lvl 50 and was she actually a little worried? Whats the games lvl cap ie whats her lvl?

It looks like she is worried that the creature is completely outside of it’s habitat encounter tables.

Yeah, it’s a little disturbing to find a creature that is made for arctic encounters… in a forest. There can be reasons for it. The reason it’s way out on the edge and is a level 50 is disturbing for figuring out what kinda creatures are in the center that have somehow displaced a creature like that. Since wolves don’t often give up territory unless there is an overwhelming need to. Either food is too scarce or it’s dangerous to be there. We’ll find out eventually.

Man, that’d be hilarious. (That last panel.)

Also, wolf is mildly gorgeous. (And not mildly huge….is it a mount, too?!)

All of this and yet I still think the most curious bit is the “we” in the first panel. (I’m….weird, obviously….)

The “we” is from how Kevin would have talked about Kaylin as a separate person, it’s a carry over from how he would talk in the past being a streamer and thinking of Kaylin as a character, not as himself.

Exactly. Everybody knows that Animal Empathy is only there so you can convince a shark to let you ride it and jump over your ship.

In Soviet DnD, shark jumps you!

I had quite a fun time playing a totemist in a pirate-themed game; sadly didn’t get to do that, since the campaign finished shortly after I gained the class, and the DM flaked out on running a small-scale followup to help playtest a PrC he had made (which was the entire reason I HAD totemist… grumble grumble…)
