Looks like Tock has figured something out – can you guess what it is? 🙂
(Shameless bonus promotion – those of you who are Patrons should be able to figure out some of what’s being said here with the Orcish Language Guide! There are quite a few new words in here, which will be updated in part 2 of the Guide soon.)
Thanks for your patience with updates, too – if the slow updates bother you, keep in mind that we’re getting closer to my first goal on Patreon, $50 monthly, which means I would guarantee a new page each month!! So if you’re not pledging me on Patreon yet, but enjoy reading Tock’s story, please do consider signing up!
Ta daaaaaaaa!!! Contains the first 24 pages of the existing comic, with three bonus written and illustrated scenes not available online!
Thank you for checking it out and your continued support.

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!
Well, someone’s had enough of this conversation she can’t understand.
Also – backgrounds, wooo! After so many pages of very little background, this was a challenge and I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. Between that and the rush of action in the first 4 panels (and those being so tightly packed together) I really wanted this page to snap us right back into the reality of what’s going on – i.e. the very real, potential danger for all three of our heroes. We’ve gotten to focus on just the mystery of Onna’s situation a bit for the last few pages, but there is a lot more going on than her reluctance and Tock’s curiosity.
Also also please, if you’re interested in me posting a translation guide for the Orcish, raise your hand!
