Time for another patrons-only world building post, dear readers!
Today, continuing with Orcish celebration, we are looking at how the Orcs use their written language – what is not recorded that way vs. what is.
Thanks for your patience, everybody, while I was away at my brother’s wedding!
(These are not in numerical order, but follow my notes in the order the images are posted above, and it will all make sense.)
So, numbers 14, 12 and 15, first – all three of those being Tock-verse-framed BUT 14 and 15 being non-exactly-canon, as the Orcs are not exactly aware of broader Faerie (…yet) and don’t have magic (…at the moment).
And lastly, number 13/Sunday Gnomedays 10-13-19 – a non-Tock entry (gasp!) featuring Orc and Gnome of “Orc and Gnome’s Mild Aventures!” If you haven’t checked out their comic yet, DO! It is veryvery fun, and another adventure-based Orc/Gnome romance. Delicious ❤
Stayed tuned for more “Tock the Gnome” Orctober later today with World Building Wednesday!
Also, this will be the last one for a couple of days – I’ll be travelling out of town for my brother’s wedding! I’ll try to keep up on my Instagram, but I won’t be around a computer to keep up with cross-posting. So, see you next week for another batch of Orcish catchup!
About one third there! 🙌
I feel like this Orc is newly married, and having received a flower from their beloved, feels very loved and blessed.
Also, a bird, because I needed one today 🍃
In this week’s patrons-only world building post, we’re looking at the other side of Orcish warfare – war creates wounds, both psychological and physical, and that means intense healing!
Aaaaand as for the catchup:
The 6th / Sunday Gnomedays 10-6-19 – Tock and Onna Tock and Onna Tock and Onna ❤
The 7th – Just needed a quick self-care Orc with butterflies.
The 8th – Not sure where this one came from, but I feel like it has a story – perhaps this Orcish maiden may have been considering taking this Dragon’s egg home for a meal, but the butterfly landing on her finger gave her pause? 🦋 (Dragons are absolutely friends, not food, in Tock’s world btw, and the Orcs and all the other races – except the Gnomes – would be familiar with them from a distance. More on that in the future…)
Fallen a bit behind with cross-posting If you mind terribly, remember to keep an eye on my Instagram for more timely updates!
I had a different plan for this one, but needed to do something simpler than that yesterday, so here we are.
Had a rough moment earlier and this is what came out of it. So much for staying soft 😅
Welcome to another patrons-only world building post, dear readers – and once again,
h a p p y O r c t o b e r !!! ❤
As the above sprig of lavender may imply, we’re looking a little bit more at an aspect of Orcish life that I’ve mentioned before – hunting and gathering.
