The sudden giant head thing is a manga convention that I really like. When someone explodes on you, that's kind of how they look for a second. I initially envisioned a very serious scene when Durgo gets mad at his sons but this way works better, I think.

You can't kill her!

She's...
She's your mother.

Ooh, that would be quite a shocker. If the boys had slightly pointier ears, that would seem more like a possibility.

Maybe pointy ears are a recessive trait.

I remember in the days of yore when my father would take me and my brothers out pillaging. It always ended with him yelling at us like that. Good times my friend...good times.

All right, if you three don't knock it off back there, I'm turning this longboat around!!

Mr. McGee, don't make him angry. You wouldn't be able to take him hat shopping when he's angry!

Snorri Sturluson was the author, or transcriber, or the Prose Edda. So these are Vikings. It takes a village to raise a child, but it takes a Viking to raze a village. Or in this case, three children, and one parent Viking.

Whoever the mother is, is probably towheaded, judging from the middle brother. That's pretty common in Scandinavia, and Russia. There is a resemblance in the face, but there's no guarantee they're all full brothers.

By the way, there's an armed figure in armor standing behind the four family members in panel 1. A henchman? If he's a vllager, he must be working with Durgo now. He's not making any effort to conceal himself. Or maybe it was an especially long civil war, and this is a remnant of the army Blackfeather and Durgo once fought in together.

The two big guys are full brothers. The smaller one comes from a different mother so he's their half brother.

The 5th figure is part of the mercenary group that Durgo (seemingly) leads.

Viking names are cool. I'm also a fan of Viking jewelry. They make cool gifts. :)

Link to a good Viking jewelry store that I've bought from:

One of the most enjoyable parts of making a comic is coming up with the non-word sounds for characters...eep! Good work.

Thanks! I agree. I like making up sound effects as well.

Those Urweg necklaces are amazing. Vikings had more of a flair for bling that they are normally given credit for. According to the archeologists, Vikings dressed more like Hollywood pirates than Hollywood Vikings. (http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/02/080225101117.htm)

I'm guessing the young people are probably unfamiliar with that old TV show. Thanks for the link!

Head Enlarging Rage (Ex)

A barbarian can fly into a head enlarging rage a certain number of times per day equal to his daily barbarian rage allotment. In a head enlarging rage, a barbarian temporarily gains all the normal benefits of rage, and in addition, a +4 competence bonus to intimidate, perform (oriental visual comedy), an additional -2 penalty to armor class, a size template one above her normal without the reach and ability benefits usually attributed, and an once per round at-will use of the spell "shout". At level 15, the barbarian gains access to the once per round at-will use of the spell "greater shout".

Thanks for the detailed specs! -2 AC penalty. Ouch.

It's funny how people get used to the word "fire" use when arrows are shot even when is out of context.
