Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers! 
I apologize for this one being late, I was travelling to visit family and got some sad news about a dear friend, and didn’t have the energy to get it posted on time. Thank you for your patience – here it is now, short and (bitter)sweet, and and establishes something you might have already guessed…

Bonus sketch – Illegal (and progress update!)

Something bonusey for extra Sunday Gnomedays (drawn last night, but busy weekend means late posting!). My Wife and I are rewatching Veronica Mars in preparation for the new series, and as usual, Veronica and Wallace are giving me major Tock and Bumble feels.

(Don’t worry Bumble, I don’t think Tock would actually do that well in jail either 😅🎩💕)

As for current progress!

The Orcish tent redesign is going very well, slowly but surely. This week’s World Building Wednesday will feature the Chief’s-tent redesign and how/why that differs from their usual homes. The week after that, if all goes to plan, will feature the Great Hall’s redesign, and then I’m on to making page adjustments! Thank you for your patience, dear readers. I promise we will be back to forward story progress as soon as possible.

In the meantime, my daily “Tock Time” has gone to making progress on this month’s Ranger level bonus drawing (which will be a finished ink and subtle color piece this month instead of just a pencil illustration). WIPs on that are available for all Rogue level patrons, too, in lieu of the page progress WIPs I would usually be posting more regularly. Click here to check those out, too!

Thank you all, very much, for your patience again and for your enjoyment of Tock’s story always!

Time for another (usually) patrons-only world building post, dear readers!
For those of you visiting Patreon for the open house – each week there is a new exclusive world building post available for all patrons. I post the associated art for free as a promo, but the actual notes/story/etc. and any bonus visual notes are readable for patrons-only, at any dollar amount.
This week we’re looking at another very lost tale of the Wood Queen and the Stone Queen, characters of lore famous in the holiday stories of Peacenight-time. But though that legend ends well, it was not the final account of them:

Time for another patrons-only world building post, my dear readers!
Today we are looking at Arella’s parents – the Queen and King before she and her brother Archibald took the throne – and how Gnomish government could have worked in times of more realm-wide crisis.

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

Continuing our theme from last week, here’s a better portrait of the Gnomish royal family, as they are now. We will be looking a bit at what happened to Adamine after last week’s trauma, how this family formed, and where they are now.

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

img_20190116_174011_162

This week we’re talking about romance –  where that fits within some of the cultures Tock and Bumble have started to encounter, and what each culture intends for that to be.

Full post here.
