World Building Wednesday 12 – Brogh Battle Magic

20180919_122944.jpg

Time for another patrons-only world building post!

This week we’ll be looking a bit more at the Brogh – specifically how they use magic in battle, since they do have access to it.

Here’s a little preview:

“As I’ve implied before, the Brogh are more of a peaceful nature than not, but with the Orcs attacking them so often they do have to defend themselves. As such, they have developed several forms of defensive magic (a literal first line of defense, just trying to keep them out altogether) and enhancement magic, for themselves and their weapons, when the defensive measures fail….”

Full post available here (along with many many other patrons-only goodies!).

Sometimes progress is finishing a comic page or a grand, complicated commission.

Sometimes progress is a tiny ink drawing of your main character looking more hopeful than you expected.

Beauty and the Beast

~ A “Tock the Gnome” fairy tale, of the Brogh – the badger-folk. ~

Extra Happy and Grateful Seven Years of Tock, everyone!

I’m very excited to share this with you, and hope you enjoy it as much as I appreciate your readership.

Fairy tales are obviously a big part of the story, inspiring Tock herself to go on her quest – and the further we get, the more we’re going to see versions of certain fairy tales (that we humans are familiar with) pop up in Tock’s world.

So here’s the first, as a special treat! Hope you all look forward to more of these as much as I do (and as for how they’re going to pop up? Shhhh not telling!).

Thank you again, dear readers. Tock’s journey would not have gotten this far without you.

~ Beauty and the Beast ~

Long ago there lived a fair maiden, with her father and two sisters, in a sett much farther down the shoreline than here. Her mother had vanished before her babes were even walking, leaving their father to raise the girls alone. Still, they brightened his life, and he worked hard at trade with the neighboring setts and other nearby peoples – in order to provide for them a good and prosperous life.

(Everybody’s so pretty.)

Hope you enjoy the slight “upgrade” to the site’s look, and that you keep reading to see who all these strange folk are, and what’s to become of them! And thanks, always for your enjoyment of the comic and your support.

Empowered, that is, using the magic of her god. Half of an unfinished sketch showing her and a priest of another deity. For more on the religion of these Gnomes, see here.

And with the magic of a USB key, we have a new page, everyone 🙂

In which some shiny new foreshadowing and vague backstory begins! We’ll be back to Tock and Bumble and Onna in about 4 more pages.

Sketch – Orc with Magic

This is 1000% not canon! Just so you know.

Mostly this is what happens if I watch Magical Girl stuff in an Orcish mood.
