Webcomic / Chronicles of Loth
The Chronicles of Loth
is a fantasy webcomic created by Eric Flint and J.E. Flint.
The story is about Mirlinth Loth, a young half-dragon girl on a quest to save her people from extinction. Along the way she meets her traveling companions Ralidant Fisali (the Half-Elf love interest and mage), Kinuko Harada (the quiet monk), Cade (comic relief and halfling thief), Sevikira Feledon (Loth's childhood friend). They travel to destroy ancient pillars, all the while being chased by mad clerics, an evil prince and princess, and a mysterious baddie who wants them nixed.
It is a derivative mix of fantasy, humor, manga action, and clichés.

- Does Not Like Shoes: The Treori characters, such as Loth or Sevkira. That their claws seem to be made from the same material as their skin is strange (same color), but seeing as how their design was partially ripped off from Disney's Gargoyles, this is simply a repeat of that oddity.
