This week, inspired by Mariatus circumstances, we’re looking at the Elven religious structure, specifically their temples and one thing that can happen there.

World Building Wednesday 36 – Selkie

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

This week, inspired by the nature in which I celebrate St. Paddy’s Day, here’s a look at the Selkie folk of Tock’s world, and how their closest neighbors – the Elves – tend to view them.

Promo – World Building Wednesday 34

Prompted by my participation in Fairy Fae Week over on Instagram (….whaaaat? This one’s only 7 days, not 30 😅). Today’s prompt was Light or Dark, and I went with both. Previous/following prompts will be posted here sometime later this week.

As I’ve mentioned before, the Elves of Tock’s world see morality very differently than other races. They are very aware of the balance necessary between Light and Dark, comfort and sorrow, peace and pain….

World Building Wednesday 13 – the Magicked Folk

20180926_121417.jpg

Time for another Patrons-only world building post! This week we’re looking at magic again – specifically, the cultures that have it, and why that is so.

Preview:

As has been implied, the Gnomes of Tock’s world do not have magic. Magical forces show up in some of their legends, and they hear stories of it existing in other cultures – especially in the Lowlands – but it has been a long, LONG time since any such force was present in their own kind. And as we’ve seen, the Orcs don’t appear to have magic, either.

So, if magic exists, where is it and why do its keepers still have it, if the Orcs and Gnomes don’t?

World Building Wednesday 7 – Elven Queensguard

20180815_192921.jpg

Belatedly, that is, BUT that and Throwback Thursday all in one, as a result!

This week at Patreon we’re talking about the Elven Queensguard and government, as it was in the time of Misu and Mariatu 🌊💗🌊

This drawing features Reina, the Elven Queen from that time – who is one of the few characters from my pre-Tock work that has survived intact! (She’s on the left, btw.)

Here she is, in older incarnations:

(She looks pretty much the same, as you can see, except that now she gets to be happier! Yay! ……sorry Arella.)

(Also, shoutout to @photos_by_trinityhawk in the last older drawing, since it belongs to him 👍👍 and to my amazing Wife for fixing the ring in the picture and getting me into the show that inspired this drawing in the first place 😍 ).

Happy MerMay! (and patreon peek)

mermay2018_misuandmariatu

Happy beginning of MerMay everyone!

(This is also a “Tock the Gnome” patreon bonus – that Elven lady in the middle of an intense Mermaid hug is Mariatu. Surrounding her is her Wife, Misu. They are an important part of the backstory of Tock’s world and there are many bonus pieces relating to them and mermaid/elf culture there. See more here.)

This is also especially dedicated to my own Mer-Llady Wife 🐚💗🦈

Good luck to all of us participating!
