It follows the adventures of a prim and proper witch, Syrynth Sapsorrow, and her timid familiar bat, Ilemauzer, living in an undisclosed location in medieval Germany. As the comic opens, Syryth has her life turned upside down when the devil and his entourage -- consisting of his crotchety grandmother and his spoiled granddaughter -- crash her cottage and decide to take up permanent residence.˛˛Oh yeah, and it's also NotSafeForWork.˛˛----˛!!This webcomic provides examples of:˛˛* AbortedArc: What happened with Ilemauzer and the cap she gets while she's in Hell?˛* AlliterativeName: Syrynth Sapsorrow.˛* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParent: Old Scratch is this to his granddaughter Kitty.˛* AxCrazy: Feathertop Crystalclitoris, a crazed semi-feral wild woman living alone in the Gruselwald woods, and Babi Rusa, a cannibal hag.˛* BatOutOfHell: Averted with Ilemauzer, though she does end up in Hell.
