So this morning I was staring at the screenshot of him in Noble's and I noticed something. The front of the tunic has a big cat's face on it! I never saw that before!
(Forgive my poor tracing, it's hard to do with a mouse.) The image is small here, but click on the screenshot above to see how big the face is on the tunic.
Now that I've seen that, I can't un-see it.
There are tigers on mage-tummies!
Edit: *cackles* Today's Level Up comic is rather fitting. Love that comic, love Fellowship NPC humor. :D
