Thanks, guys! I added some stars to the night skies in the previous page. They definitely make the scene look more convincing.

Recursive story telling. Flashbacks that require further flashbacks in explanation. For instance, why did the anonymous party member have to go to his colleague's wedding in drag?

Heh heh... who knows? I see 3 possible explanations:

1. He's wearing a most cunning disguise since there's a bounty on his head in the town.

2. He lost a bet.

3. He'd realized that he's happier living as a woman.

The people you design all have similar, yet distinct looks that reflect a sort of once upon a time, in the dark ages, appeal.

The scruffy humans, the costumes, weapons, landscape, even the other-worldly eyes of the elves, and of course the mighty Wombat... its just a great blend of treasured historical and fantasy elements.

Thanks, Draginbeard! I'm definitely a fan of the Dark Ages styles and most of the look of this comic is inspired from that period. I do have some late middle ages and early renaissance looking stuff mixed in there partly because I dig the Dutch masters' paintings.

5. He was transformed into a woman -- with no upgrade to CHA -- by a cunning wizard he made the mistake of crossing.

Durgo, the Byronic Hero?

Ha ha! I considered that option as well. Durgo definitely has many of the qualities of a Byronic hero. He also qualifies as a Tragic Hero Antagonist.

Sometimes your pages don't make sense, and then you post a new page, and I go back and re-read the earlier stuff, and I'm like, "Damn." And it's awesome.

Now that I'm coming to expect that "recursive story telling," I enjoy the confusing-at-first pages much more.

What a great web of story you are weaving, without overwhelming us with detail and backstory! (a la Robert Jordan... eff that guy.)

Also, it was pretty great to see your page about Blatboy, as I know J. Walter- I'm a trombonist who used to live in NYC.

Thank you for your thoughtful compliment. Given the slow 1 page/week schedule, I can see how some of these flashbacks might get a bit confusing sometimes. It's funny how the writing process IS actually kind of like weaving. It's been great fun so far.

It's very cool that you know Walter and that you are a fellow trombonist... or tromboner, as Walter might say! ;)

The question is whether Durgo will be an antagonist or (anti-)hero going forward. He was on Blackfeather's side during the civil war, but once the cause was lost, apparently lost his sense of purpose. This reunion seems to have rekindled some of his youthful idealism. I'm still hopeful we will see a merger of Blackfeather's party and what's left of Durgo & Sons. A stronger party should translate to more challenging adventures. Alternately, if Durgo won't forgive Blackfeather for killing his son, Durgo & Sons could become an ongoing nemesis for Blackfeather's party.

That look on the last panel says a thousand words! Great page!
Guesticus 2nd Dec 2013, 11:37 AM edit delete reply
Durgo isn't giving Blackfeather a dirty look, but a sad one: at least 2 prophecies have come true, and he knows there is nothing he can do to stop his one

Yeah, most would be angry, but Durgo justs seems sad/resigned to the fate that will one day befall his first born son (and his 2nd, and his 3rd)
