A furry webcomic by Jonathan Sario, it can be found here. Was originally about six children training to be adventurers, but after #431 it was revised so that they were fairly ordinary (for anthro's in a somewhat futuristic world). Then it jumped forward two years, then a sub-comic about Fox's older brother and his group of friends was added.
Includes examples of:
- Adventure-Friendly World: Pre-revision, the kids were adventurers in training after all.
- Attention Deficit Ooh Shiny: Blue
- Bond Creatures: Bikits.
- Carnivore Confusion: Averted, mostly because the comic not only takes place on another planet the different species all have different homeworlds. Though pre-revision it was stated that the Instinctuals used to prey on other sapient species, as well as steal their planet's resources.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Blue.
- Disproportionate Retribution: What Fox plans in this strip.
- Expy: Most of the second group (the seventh graders) are "streamlined" versions of the original cast: Ixiah=Fox, Ace=Maegan, Q=Blue, Lambert=Rex, Mahr combines aspects of Maxi and Shiva.
- Fantasy Character Classes: Before the reversion the characters had the following classes: Fox=ninja, Maegan=magic-user though dependent on her Bikit for powers, Hero=Light warrior, Maxi=spirit warrior (spellblade), Blue=scout (with ranger-like skills), Rex=gadgeteer, Ixiah=psychic.
- Four-Fingered Hands: Averted, but referenced in this strip
- Gadgeteer Genius: Rex Wizard
- G-Rated Drug: Menthol soda, a specialty of the local pizza spot, has been described as "like gin for kids", it gives you brain freeze that feels like a hangover and makes you act pretty stupid.
- Interspecies Romance: Pre-revision it was explicitly stated that being attracted to another species was their society's equivalent of homosexuality. It's unclear if that's changed but different species are still genetically incompatible. Aunt Kat and Uncle Doug are the only really official interspecies couple but it is very easy to pair up the kids.
- Shout-Out: Several, but one particularly notable one post-revision is when Ix buys a used video game cheap that is rumored to curse the player when the hardest course is beaten with a secret puppet version of the main character.
- Species Surname: Fox Kitsunei
- Techno Wizard: Also Rex Wizard
- Teleporters and Transporters: They require exact change, also a common invention of Rex's.
- Time Skip: skipped forward two years in December 2003, less than two years after the reversion.
- Toy Ship: Fox/Meg, Hero/Maxi, Rex/Blue, Mono/Shiva, take your pick.
