And with this page we finally have the last main character introduced! AND IT ONLY TOOK 3 CHAPTERS!! WHEW!
It’ll be nice to get away from all those pesky introductions and get on with the story!!! XD
XD oh i like him allready
Niiiice. I was hoping he’d go over well with the ladies.
So this is how an elvish trollface looks like.
you have a very good point there XD
Why, thank you. xD
BWAHA! XD If we ever make user icons for people I’m totally making that one of the options!
That’s some kick-ass armor. Good job!
I’m glad you can appreciate it! When designing it I was like “Alright, this is awesome!” Then when I drew it again and again I started to realize how detailed and time consuming it truly was and-OH GOD WHAT HAVE I GOT MYSELF INTO?!!
Ahem. Don’t make me bring out my Dwarf impression. He will lecture you for hours why this piece of “armor” is junk. lol
To a Dwarf, unless it’s Dwarven made, anything is junk. Even a Dwarven made trashcan would be better than anything a pretty little elf could make.
You got that right…
“What is that? Looks like a leaf strapped on your skinny body. My wife’s morning dress gives more protection than that!”
If I may intercede, *Dwarf*, elven armor is not meant to be totally protective, but able to afford them not to have a slashing blow glide straight through their girth, should they actually fail to dodge it.
As you can see, as little plate as possible is actually included on there, and what little is actually present is made to prevent incapacitation due to a direct blow to either the leg or wrist/forearm. An opponent’s blow could glance off one’s blade and slide down to their arm relatively easily, as they would likely be in range of a strike hitting only the parts of the elf touching or closest to the weapon. Likewise, the leg is protected due to the fact that the elf in question could undercompensate, or the swing could slightly alter course to be able to cut at them. Their tendons could be severed, if the bloodloss and stinging accompanying the loss of balance and support in that leg were not enough. There is also a chestplate which I had forgotten to mention, serving to prevent impalement of vital organs. The leather on the chest/torso is also angled away to deflect the blow, if possible.
That being said, true, it is not enough to endure a direct blow from a dwarf-forged hammer or axe, but they would not be in range of many of the blows, and the swing would be slower than with a sword, my fine fellow. If they were actually hit by one of those, no ammount of plating would be likely to prevent disabling of their bodies or at least being knocked back or down enough to allow for a death blow.
Heavy plate armor as you might prefer, along with encumbering chain mail would not be suitable to their style of fighting, and you know it. What they have is best for their swift and elegant mode of fighting, and would allow them to weave in and out of conflict and harm’s way with enough agility that their tactics would not be impaired, even though they are wearing armor that slightly slows them down.
Thank you for taking the time to read, if you happen to.
Yes. I enjoy arguing on seemingly pointless subjects. I am quite knowlegeable in many different subjects, and I can discuss many different things with informed conduct.
As some of you may have noticed, I am also quite insane, so that helps.
Then again, the “eccentric genius” trope is far too little recognised in real life… so many people that should be considered to be geniuses, but are not by many people do to the flaws in the “I.Q.” system for testing intellect.
Love her face in that last panel.
Awesome! I really loved how that panel came out. I think I enjoy drawing Tanna the most.
Well… i think she should stick with the flattery because he IS a high rank officer and she want to join , right ?
One more thung : Naarie do you have the whole story or at least the main idea ready or you create the a plot and them develop from there ?
Good point. It’s not that she doesn’t want to show respect, it’s all a matter of freaking out over whether she’d get in trouble or not. XD
I have the whole story planned out but not completely scripted (overall story is set up in plot points but I write dialogue a chapter at a time) and all of the lore is completely figured out and detailed. I PUT TOO MUCH THOUGHT INTO THIS. :O
It’s brain crack that she’s cutting as we speak.
You can never put too much thought into a story. The best authors spend tons more time on preparation and research than they do actually writing. The fact that you put so much thought into it just shows that you are prepared for awesomeness.
Prepared for awesomeness….
You so get me.
I love this whole story so far “new reader” loved thew entrence of the last charactor i can see this becoming interesting now
cani wait to see how this turns out but i can c that Leuro will be a big part of it
but tbh all i can think wheni see his enterence is that he must be like really close to her omg maybe crushing on her :O well find out soon hopefully lol plz update more soon just cant wait !!
oooo i like that theory
Ah, elven layered plate. Simply magnificent. I have always appreciated the beauty and grace of such a thing, especially when they *just so happen* to be quite useful as actual combat wear, as well.
On another, slightly less noteworthy tangent, it is nice to see who that fiery haired jerk actually is. I love his attitude, yet I hate it, as it both shows how spectacularly… smooth elves can be, with their elegant mannerisms of speach, and yet, it shows the dark, crass, despicable part of their culture, which greatly displeases me. I can see he’s apparently relatively young, both by his looks (which is no easy road for judging elven development, mind you) and by his attitude… The slights of one’s elders would be much more veiled and difficult for the casual observer to interperate as such. <.<
