Nwain: The Knight Who Wandered Dream is a long-form animated webcomic about Nwain, a Knight Errant, and her travels in the world of Dream. She is accompanied by her trusty steed, Shade, a wolf-antelope.
The comic started in 2013, and is created by Terrana Cliff, rillani.
Tropes present in this work:
- Adventure Towns: A new chapter, a new location (so far).
- Big Beautiful Woman: The Margravine.
- Cool Mask: Nwain's signature owlish mask.
- Dark and Troubled Past: With hints of Failure Knight.
- Fish out of Temporal Water: Nwain is displaced 200 years forward in time.
- Lady of War: Nwain tries to be this, although she sometimes loses her cool.
- Mechanical Lifeforms: They populate the town of Far Listener.
- Medieval Stasis: The only significant advance over 200 years is Nwain's favorite chess gambit being declared illegal.
- Robot Wizard: The Wizard is quite literally this, and looks like a mechanical version of a stereotypical "Arabian Nights" Days sorceror. Heavy emphasis on the "robot" part-it doesn't even have a gender.
- Tournament Arc: Consisting of martial arts, chess, and, of all things, go-carting.
