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 😍 ).

Brogh Gaelic Time, 1

broghgaelictime01_tockthegnome
I’ve been working a bit on the Orc language lately (which I may or may not be sharing on Patreon with translations…), but that’s got me thinking about the other languages we’ll be coming across soon, particularly these lovely badger folk.
This time of year, leading up to March, always gets me thinking about my own roots too. I’m Irish, and love being so, and there’s a lot about Celtic culture that’s going to be reflected in Brogh culture (in the same way my Orcs are very very Viking).
In interest of honoring that, and not driving myself crazy having to come up with multiple fantasy languages, I have elected to have my badgers speak Gaelic. Which I am now also learning myself 😀
So have some Eunan speaking of himself!
Pronunication: iss farr may.
Translation: “I am a man.”
(Yeeeeah, very binary-centric, as the first few lessons irritatingly were, BUT interesting and important that he is saying so.)
