Aaaaaaaaaaaand we’re back!!

Thank you very much for your patience, dear readers, during the Orcish Tent Correction. I am very, very relieved to be back to forward story motion and grateful to anyone who’s stuck around despite the delay!

Updates to the existing pages that needed edits will be happening asap – as I’ve mentioned on Patreon, the artwork for that is all finished, but the updated panels still need to be pasted into place. My photoshop skills are not the best, so that’s gonna take some time, but in the meantime I’ll be moving forward with new page production. Once edited, the scans of the updated panels will be available on Patreon, even before they’re put in their proper page places ❤

Thanks for your patience with updates in general, too -if the slow updates bother you, keep in mind that we’re getting closer to my first goal on Patreon, $50 monthly, which means I would guarantee a new page each month!! So if you’re not pledging yet but enjoy reading Tock’s story, please do consider signing up!

Holding hands 😀 And finally, some movement!

Catchup posting for the last two Sunday Gnomedays, booth photos from the last two events I did, and this and last month’s Ranger level bonus drawings will be up soon, buuuuuuuuuut I wanted to get this up first ❤

And here we have it. But is that better, or worse, for poor Onna?

A note about design changes:

As they appear on some previous pages, the Orcs’ dwellings were at first completely culturally appropriated from Mongolian culture. I was not as socially aware when I started this part of the story as I am now, and I am truly sorry for having done this. I have since redesigned the Orcs’ tents and will be reposting these pages with updated panels as soon as possible.

In the meantime, the artwork for those updated panels is viewable here.

Design process for the new tents is viewable here, here and here.

Looks like Tock has figured something out – can you guess what it is? 🙂

(Shameless bonus promotion – those of you who are Patrons should be able to figure out some of what’s being said here with the Orcish Language Guide! There are quite a few new words in here, which will be updated in part 2 of the Guide soon.)

So much hurt, on both sides :/

(Shameless bonus promotion – those of you who are Patrons should be able to figure out most of what’s being said here with the Orcish Language Guide! There are some new words in here, which will be updated in part 2 of the Guide when there’s enough of them. But if you’re curious, most of this page and all the pages before it is/are decipherable through the first part!)

Thanks for your patience with this page too -if the slow updates bother you, keep in mind that we’re getting closer to my first goal here on Patreon, $50 monthly, which means I would guarantee a new page each month!! So if you’re not pledging yet but enjoy reading Tock’s story, please do consider signing up! Especially if the waiting is a bother ^^;

In the meantime, I hope you’ve been enjoying Gnomevember and look forward to the holiday bonus drawing! (Patrons will be getting a little something extra special this year, btw ❤ )

And don’t forget about my Shop Small Sale going on, now through Cyber Monday! Patrons-only bonus discount available here.

NOTE: There are some errors in the text of panel 5, from scanning, that I didn’t catch before. I will have those fixed up later today.

UPDATE: Panel 5 is fixed!

Almost to a resolution ~ but, then!

Thank you for your patience in waiting for this page, I know it’s been a couple months ^^; That said – we’re very close to my first goal on Patreon, $50 monthly, for which I would guarantee a new page each month!! So if you’re not pledging yet but enjoy reading Tock’s story, please do consider signing up!

And as far as this page goes, I am very pleased with it myself, especially that first panel. Lots of little storytelling details in where everyone is looking 😉

And and, as I mentioned last page, The Orcish Language Guide is finally available! Click here to check it out. (Some of the words on today’s page are new, but they will be added as soon as possible.)

Lastly – Happy Orctober, too!!! I will be participating in that, even though I’m having a bit of a late start. More about that on my Instagram.
