The beautiful part tho is Jonan isn't bluffing! XD He is both famous and potentially terrifying! Though I admit I don't remember where he keeps his runes, so I guess depending outright threats might be a bluff... GO Jonan go!

He -is- bluffing though: in the anti-magic field he can't cast because, well, no magic, and out of it his lips are sealed.

While it may be a bluff because he can't use his magic, Jonan does have Necropony as proof, and can still command Necropony. I'm curious to see if our pony friend has any useful talents that will come into play. :3

Other than prancing about and being cute? I am not sure if the pony has any abilities other than those - nor am I convinced it needs to. :D <3

(Kiri you are a blessing xD )
And YUP, he's significantly less threatening without his ACTUAL magic to back him up!

I appreciate so many faces here oh my gosh, thank you Jonan for (hopefully) saving this poor boy.

Despite no indication of it, I always feel like Jonan puts a lot of oomph and extra enunciation into Rs when speaking. Like a bit of extra roll or something.

omg, I kinda enjoy the idea of Jonan affecting an Impressive Voice to be as extra as possible

Aw yes to not putting prepositions at the end of a sentence! You go Jonan! Show 'em how to grammar!
On a more serious note, I am really interested and concerned to learn how witches are treated when discovered. Would they drive him out, or actually lynch him? I know this webcomic is mild enough that it wouldn't go there on paper, but is it something that might have happened outside a family friendly rating? Poor Xira. :( He's so scared. Jonan saving the day is great.

In general, it depends on the state -- some places just mark witches and treat their magic as a basic crime. Some places kill witches just for being witches.

This is really satisfying to watch Jonan finally get to talk his way through stuff, like the moment when the party member with higher stats in one specific area finally gets a chance to to roll in what they're good at.
*hopefully he doesn't roll a nat 1

I can't help but think "No... He hasn't heard of you, Jonan, cause he's a narrow minded yokel and just that clueless. Though he does look intimidating though! I love that lighting.
Also, the emotions on this page. Poor Xira being so scared, "Hurray!!" for Sev stepping in to stick up for him, and "AAA!!! LOOK! Now Jonan's trying to help Xira by intimidating narrow-minded townsfolk! Yay!"
And OMG, the vote incentive! That is so sad! But I'm giggling. Sad giggles.

I bet he hasn't. Still, nice Intimidation roll.

Aaaaah, poor Aember! :C
Also, Jonana, yuss, roll Intimidation with disadvantage!
posted at 10:52am on June 6th, 2017
Surprisingly, Jonan, though everyone tells tales of what awful things he does, seems to be the one least prone to reaching for his magic to resolve conflicts. (because I totally imagine Sev here trying to turn into a dragon, and we saw Xira try to cast)

It's more that he's very level-headed. He knows he can't cast, so he doesn't waste time attempting to. Remember that he originally got into this mess because he cast spells at a trespasser the moment he saw her, and she reflected them somehow.

I remember the trespasser actively robbing him, if I'm not mistaken. Probably pretended to need help to get inside the clinic.

Yep, he first told her to go, and only then cast the spell, however we were told he has overreacted in the past, like sealing someone's lips for something minor, and not realizing they would die of thirst if they didn't get help from other Runewriters (as he himself thought he'd just wait it out when it backfired on him).

Does Jonan ever go to wipe sweat off his face or something and cut his hand on those cheekbones?

WHY do I have the sudden thought that this racist kid in the straw hat is gonna provide some of Jonan's backstory by hugging him and crying "PAPA!"?

I don't think Jonan's old enough to be the father of someone with that degree of facial hair.
...I also can't see Jonan getting into a situation where he'd be the father of anyone TBH. He's always struck me more as the 'keep people at arms length or farther away' sort.
