Hey, so here is the second and last part of the Battlefield arc; I hope you liked it. It's an obvious reference to the life points system used in many video games but also on Tabletop RPGs. It also was a necessary episode to demotivate Pepper to use her power for war or to help armies; a very important element into the larger big story I have in mind for Pepper&Carrot. Thanks to all your contributions and patronage; I'm continuously amazed by how the project is evolving. July will be a month for finishing the book project and then I hope I'll be back in September with a new Episode 34. Have all a good summer until this!

Hahaha, this was one of your best yet, David! That punchline was perfect. Absolutely love how much this webcomic has grown, and where it's going. Also, can I just say I really appreciate that you release on an episodic schedule, rather than releasing a page every week or so? It's so much more compelling to get a complete experience in one sitting.
All the best to you!

Oh my heart that was adorable. Doomed to fail but admirable.

Ah, je m'attendais à ce que Pepper réalise un sortilège qui défient les attentes et ne provoque aucun mort. Bien joué !

"Démotiver Pepper à utiliser ses pouvoirs pour la guerre, les armées ?"
Du fait de la nature légère du webcomic, on s'attend à ce que les thèmes 'matures' soit mis au derrière de la scène mais cette remarque me met le doute.

Il est clair que Pepper n'est pas du genre à apporter la souffrance parce que cela l'amuse. Du coup la démotivation dont tu parles. C'est par rapport à Pepper et sa magie ou le rapport entre Pepper et comment le monde voit les sorcières de Chaosa (j'espère que j'ai bien expliqué)

En tout cas c'est vraiment du super boulot, bon courage pour la suite et merci beaucoup !

I really liked this one. I was thinking that fighting in a war was very out of character for Pepper, and this conclusion was exactly the kind of thing I've come to expect from her.

Knew something would happen near the end. Very funny, and I was not surprised that Pepper would do something silly like this. Thanks.

This is a typical problem of not clearly formulated terms of reference. "Make me something cool" - "Done". So, who blame in this casus?


To me as an engineer, it is very familiar. )))

Super épisode comme toujours, je viens tout juste de le lire avec ma fille qui a adoré 😊
Mais je crois que ce qui m'a fait le plus rire, c'est pepper & carrot, avec leur masque, leur gel hydroalcoolique et surtout, leur rouleau de papier toilette 🤣

Is the "huUWOOOOOOOOOOO!" rendered as a bitmap? It looks like there are compression arifacts on the text.

If you look closely at the 'HD' version (https://peppercarrot.com/en/article466&hd=1 specifically https://peppercarrot.com/0_sources/ep33_Spell-of-War/hi-res/en_Pepper-and-Carrot_by-David-Revoy_E33P01.jpg) you can see that it's more brushstrokey than jaggey (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/jaggies) to better convey the earthshaking sound of the horn.

A production report blog entry (https://davidrevoy.com/article779 section 2C: Production, Lettering) discussed this a little; the nifty tools within SVG known as 'feature effects' (FE) are used (such as https://caniuse.com/#feat=mdn-api_svgfedisplacementmapelement for instance). These alter raster or vector data in an SVG file (such as the vector letters of a font here) on the fly, creating basically a raster result but at an arbitrary scale (so one doesn't end up with mismatched resolution problems).

Bugreport: The transcript and the HD buttons seem to be coupled. If I enable HD, it also enables the Transcript and if I disable transcript HD is disabled too. The only way to get HD without transcript is to edit the URL by hand.
Content: Even though I enjoy reading the current episode, can we please come back to children-friendly topics? The last three episodes where full of war, fights and IT references…

Remember Pepper was raised and educated at Chaosah. She was taught all means of being destructive. But throughout the series, all we've seen was her using these magic skills for constructive or fun purposes. Summoning monsters for tea and cookies (Ep8), having quite a powerful but cute defense system (Ep9). Actual physical violence seemed limited to smashing her magic book against a monster (Ep26). Fair enough the IT references won't hit home for everyone (me being one of them) but hey, he's catering to a varied audience.

Until now Pepper's learning path and development has been determined by her teachers. I think she's now reaching the point where she'll develop her own views and ideals. I can see her either leave Chaosah behind and return to Hippiah, choose to restructure Chaosah, attend all different Hereva schools or just all of the above. What should have become clear now is that Pepper is not one to make war or fight and soon enough, this will become clear to her just as well.

I wasn't surprised with the "no bloodshed and violence" part of the comics. I was surprised with the ending -- how both armies felt so humiliated that their war had been turned into a game that they both targeted Pepper instead. Still, Pepper is the wise one. Bloodshed is just so pointless.


Доброго дня,

Я уже долго наслаждаюсь Вашим творчеством, но в силу своей застенчивости, только сейчас решился написать Вам. Вы создали произведение наполненое ярким и искрометным юмором. Созданая вами вселенная прекрасна. Главная героиня влюбляет в себя своим озорством и непосредственностью. Каждая глава вашего комикса возращает меня в детство, оставляя приятный и добрый след в моём сердце. Желаю вам творческих успехов и с надеждой жду очередных приключений Пеппер.

С уважением и глубоким поклоном,

Love it! First found this webcomic in 2015 but forgot it soon after.. Found it again after getting a tablet as a gift then learning krita.. Small world :)
I adore her idea here though, naive as it was

That was good. I almost fallen from the bed, when saw results of the spell, and some time after also swollen the tea, when seen that repeating zeroes over Pepper's and Carrot's head.
