Backstory and denial!

Aaaaaaaaand:

That makes *3* new pages this month, including this milestone one!

I am so grateful to be telling Tock’s story, and to all of you for sticking around so long to read it. If you’re struggling with a project dear to your heart – from my own experience, I implore you not to give up. All progress, however small, is progress. And as Sam’s gaffer says, “It’s the job that never gets started that takes the longest to finish.” (“Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring,” JRR Tolkien)

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers! One that connects directly to the most recent page and provides one more piece of the puzzle that is Onna Kin-breaker.
As you can see on page 96, Onna is stricken by the scars on the Hogdragons she’s sheltering with. At first glance, this may imply that the Hogdragons are being badly treated, BUT all is not as it seems…..

This week, we have a story. A glimpse at what happened – what it felt like – when the Gnomes lost their magic.

This week, we have a short tale about the Gnomish afterlife – or that space between life and death.

Note: This is canon, but it certainly isn’t something Tock or Bumble or any other living Gnome is aware of. So, keep that in mind, and more on that as things progress….

This week, we’re looking at a little Orcish lore: how they used to treat the forest, what they believe about themselves and magic – and how they came to worship the sun instead.

Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!

This week we’re looking at the place legends and “fairy” tales hold in Tock’s world, especially in Gnomish culture – with a specific humanly-popular Fairy Tale as an example!
