Mina's Adventure, and other illustrated stories

This starts out as something i did all the work on, a story on the side of the Word Mastermind game. Here i'll reproduce it, adding illustrations - one short episode at a time. Later on, this thread might host other such stories, or even collaborations - with the other authors' permission.

Mina's Adventure was built around or against some words proposed by bananabadger, ElderOblex, GodRosen, and JaDeX105. You can follow the story's progress at this link.

Mina, the little Dwarf, plays out having found the King's lost gem and being bestowed a noble title as the reward.

Out of sapphire blue (the floor was packed with them) popped Monse - the mole, her brother's pet, steed, and pranks partner. "Shoo, shoo!" Mina shouted, waving her arms - but to no avail.

With impunity, the beast knocked her and her rock puppets down, then hopped out into the caves' darkness - clapping its hind legs as it did, to mock her.

Picking herself up, barely containing anger, the little Dwarf bowed before the only puppets still standing and vowed: "Your Majesties, this Outrage will not go unpunished!"

She filled her pockets with pebbles, grabbed her little pickaxe, and guided by bio-, chemo-, and other kinds of luminescence only Dwarves know about, ventured forth - on the tracks of the villain.

But there were dark places too in the caves, too dark even for Darkvision, and many paths, and pits, and pitt-a-patts to confuse you, so eventually she got lost...

Now she stands at a crossroads, wondering which way is what:

Atop an entrance read "piddling", which sounds like pudding. Monse would have went that way if hungry... Another, labeled "un-known", was very dark, and... it gave Mina a funny feeling. The label too looked like a letter had been erased - on purpose!

And there was a third tunnel: "pohskrow". That looked like something her older brother would come up with! But - Mina thought with a smirk - he di-dn't-know she was old enough now to spell backwards...

Something's not right... thought Mina, frowning at the wall scratches. She had been following that tunnel for a loong time - in a straight line! - and it was now the second time she encountered them... They looked like something her brother had scribbled, but made no sense.

Knock... knock, knock! - A few pickaxe hits and something like... plaster fell off. Behind was... (she approached to see better -) a rune! Which she didn't know how to read... But it must have meant something, something magical! Of course, why someone would bother to place such a potent symbol at child height never crossed her mind.

So she touched it - not with the pickaxe. And what do you know!? The rock wall began to shake - pebbles and dust fell - Mina covered her eyes, seeing nothing for a while - and then... She peeked, and there stood a door open.

She stepped past its threshold, made another step, and - her third never reaching floor - she suddenly felt cannon-balled back to the tunnel. THAT HURT!

Something kept pushing her, struggling to free itself. What, it was a... little pig? with two feet in her pockets. "Thief!" came out of her - when she realized, and she grabbed the porkling, and they wrestled, and...
