Ingress Adventuring Company is a fantasy adventure webcomic written by Kay Rossbach. The comic is about a wizard professor named Toivo Kissa, who runs a one-man adventuring party. He is joined by a rotating cast of characters, including his irritable daughter, Rosemary, and the intimidating secretary, Jessica. Each chapter is episodic and follows a monster of the week format.

  • Non-Indicative Name: One of Toivo's customers is a little surprised that despite it being described as a "company", implying multiple people, Toivo is the only person who actually seems to be hired.
  • Our Elves Are Better: Toivo is an elf, and his youthful looks and affinity with magic may be related to this.
  • Pointy Ears: Toivo and Rosemary have elvish pointy ears.
  • Psycho Ex-Girlfriend: The spirit that Toivo, Aidan and Rosemary find in Chapter 3 appears to be malevolent in a way that the other ghosts are not, indicating they did not part on good terms
  • Robe and Wizard Hat: Toivo's adventuring gear consists of a traditional robe and wizard hat.
  • Role-Playing Game Verse: Elves, Dwarves, magic, and adventuring parties.
  • Sassy Secretary: Jessica is Toivo's deadpan secretary, and seems more devoted to keeping people out of Toivo's business than letting people see him.
  • Serial Romeo: According to Rosemary, her father has a tendency to fall for people rather easily, along with a bad sense of judging their character. Apparently, he falls in love so easily that he's got an entire room full of the literal ghosts of those relationships that he unconsciously conjured up as a means of not dealing with the pain of rejection.

After fighting it off, Toivo Kissa shatters the emerald irrecoverably with a magic bolt, making the whole quest moot and forcing Robert into a career as a janitor to pay off his family's bad investments in reusable toilet paper.
