This sort of thing really should have happened right after Tabitha arrived on the ship, but in an explanation that works both in universe AND in real life, there was already too much stuff going on. By this point, I think things have calmed down enough that the Cap'n can take at least a short break from his captainly duties to be overprotective. Because I don't think we get to see nearly enough of these two interacting.

So, that last panel kind of annoys me, because I had to move everybody's heads around a lot to fit all the characters and word balloons around each other. As a result, Tabitha looks a god bit shorter than Cap'n Crosby, even though it's been established elsewhere that they're just about the same height. I dunno, I'm probably just feeling grumpy over the fact that I came up with a neat new shirt design for Tabitha to wear, and for two pages in a row now we've only seen her from the shoulders up. How am I supposed to hype T-shirt designs no one will ever actually buy THAT way?

Anyway, I've once again posted an update a good twelve hours late. Gee, could that mean that today's Voting Incentive once again involved me getting carried away experimenting with lighting and shading tricks? YOU BET IT DOES!

The Cap'n can be pretty cool :)

They are obviously in the middle of a chain of fetch quests.
A very long chain of fetch quests...

I hope they get enough EXP at the end to level up.

@ Comic: I have to admit, I like this because we haven't actually gotten to see the Captain being overprotective of Avatar yet.

@ Incentive: Unfortunately, this chain quest is more like a Zelda chain quest. At best, it'll get you something necessary for finishing the main quest, and thus is a required chain quest. At worst, it gives out a useful bauble, making it a side chain quest.

As for the "Ghost Leaving Blinky", he's telling them where to take the Wigged-Fish and Bomb Plaque now that they've "freed him from the horrors that was the maw of Blinky. Blinky, by the way, being an antique decorative hologram projector that didn't actually need to be broken to allow these two to see the hologram. Oh well.

@Darius Drake
That is exactly what I was thinking.

Worse, it's one started by some random NPC they met asking for a random item from another NPC, that then asked them for something else first, etcetera etcetera so much that they've probably forgotten what the original request was.
I hope they have a quest log of some kind.

@ Seros Senric: If they would have forgotten their original "quest" due to it being a mere 20 to 50 trades back, they wouldn't be qualified to become Nitpickers. I believe that they would remember each and every one of them.

Seros Senric (Guest), April 27th, 2017, 6:57 pm

@Darius Drake
But they are still children at this point, and probably getting rather bored.
Also, I'm betting the number of trades so far is at least over 300.

Darius Drake (Guest), April 27th, 2017, 8:24 pm

@ Seros Senric: If it's that high, then it's likely the main quest. Specifically, a training quest given to them by their Nitpicking Teachers.

Seros Senric (Guest), April 27th, 2017, 9:15 pm

@Darius Drake

I don't know... They might just be unlucky.

...Actually, I bet this started with them going to the neighbour's and asking to borrow something simple, like salt.
They're too far into the quest chain to simply give up and go to the store to buy some.

Darius Drake (Guest), April 28th, 2017, 12:07 am

@ Seros Senric: Or they are on a planet that actively doesn't use a money system, instead utilizing trades, and were asked to trade for groceries for dinner.
