[[caption-width:321:Shogun has no need for personal space!]][[http://www.harkovast.com Harkovast]] is a traditionally drawn fantasy webcomic which has been hosted on DrunkDuck since the 16th October, 2008.
The races of Harkovast are embroiled in a bloody and bitter battle against The Nameless, a force made of literally {{faceless goons}} intent on destroying the rest of the world. While the races struggle to overcome deeply entrenched hatred of one another, a lone group set off in search of the Shogun, who may be the only hope they have.

Also, it's a {{Furry comic}}!

!!Other tropes associated with Harkovast-
* ActionGirl: Chen-Chen can hold her own in a fight. Very well.
* AllThereInTheManual: A VERY hefty amount of backstory for the world, characters and cultures is posted by the author on the webcomic's forums, and is yet to be mentioned in the story proper.
* BadassBoast: Shogun:
-->"Fight me or flee; it makes no difference now. All of you are going to die."
* CompellingVoice: The Speaker can make people drown themselves by ''asking them nicely''.
* TheChessmaster: Quinn-Tain, and probably all other Wizards -- with practically no resources of their own except for knowledge, they resort to employing other races to fight the West, and aren't afraid to make sacrifices or morally questionable alliances.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Sir Muir, the mildly senile Darsai Knight, can kick ass like the best of them when he remembers to.
* FacelessGoons: The Nameless have no personality, will, or even basic instincts.
* FantasticRacism: Every race is even a different species and generally mistrust the other races. Sometimes they can have children between them, and the "half-caste" offspring are left with the [[http://www.drunkduck.com/Harkovast/index.php?p=531094 dilemma]] of following one side or the other's culture, where they might not be accepted in either.
* FantasyCounterpartCulture: All of the races seen so far, though it's subverted at times -- it's usually very easy to tell which of the real world cultures a given nation mimics visually, but their actual beliefs and customs may be warped or mixed with a different culture.
* FeetOfClay: A weird case with Shogun, who as far as anyone knows did commit all the heroic deeds he's renown for, but when enlisted by the heroes to help with a relatively unimportant rebellion, he turns out to be all but useless. This didn't go unnoticed by other characters.
* FlamingSword: The Darsai summon energy weapons created by the power of their faith.
* ForeignQueasine: When Shogun offers Sir Muir Tsung-Dao food. And vice versa, when Chen-Chen explains Darsai food to the Tsung-Dao.
* FurriesAreEasierToDraw: Implied by the author that thats why the various races are anthropomorphic animals.
* FurryComic: Open and shut. See also FunnyAnimal.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: Apparently, Sir Muir was forced to battle a serpent using a toasting fork, although as it was one of his rambles it may be in part to him being a {{Cloudcuckoolander}}.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: Shogun's "hidden fang" sword is a katana.
* LittleKnownFacts: Sir Muir with his very strange stories.
* LizardFolk: The Tsung-dao and Brorg-dao.
* NakedOnRevival: Ki, in the first scene he appears.
* NonhumanHumanoidHybrid: Most races can crossbreed; what exactly the offspring will be like is governed by a [[FunctionalMagic magical system]] that seems to run on RuleOfDrama.
* NonMammalMammaries: Actually [[HandWave explained]] as [[AWizardDidIt caused by the same magic]] that enables wildly different races to crossbreed. It's notable, that races which can't crossbreed with others do not have those.
* OlderThanTheyLook: [[spoiler:Scatterpod]], due to the nature of Ano-Chee magic used to resurrect her, turned up physically younger than her adult son.
* PsychoForHire: As Ki explains in his own words;
--> "I'm not here to make friends. I show up to kill people...and look good while I do it."
