#32 – “Bravedwarf”


Exposition with a twist, flavoured by character moments.

Morridune actually did exist in World of Warcraft once but he didn’t spawn anymore the times I was by to collect background screenshots for the bout through Blackfathom Deeps. I actually rewrote a significant part of his dialogue after one of my two voices of correction managed to find what his actual dialogue was like, I’d forgotten it. Naturally, I Altered It Slightly to fit the present context better.

Pages like this where an NPC has a major acting role are always tricky. Due to lacking the added vertices and other tweaks I make use of for facial expressions, as well as the whole morph system to handle it easilly, there’s a significant lack of emotive quality compared to the meshes actually converted to poseable status. Still, one does as one must.

On a sidenote, the game had Morridune as a Dark Iron Dwarf. Managing to somehow miss where to get those textures the first time around, I made him a somewhat suspect-looking regular dwarf. I’ve since found out however so the next time situation calls for a Dark Iron Dwarf there’ll be an actual Dark Iron Dwarf!

    No longer in the game? Huh that’s funny. He was there the last time I killed akuma-something,something-whatever his name is. It wasn’t that long ago that I killed him, when was he taken out?

    Seeing the last few times I went by there, it seems that he is, in fact, still there – but he doesn’t seem to spawn when you only bring characters of too high level for some reason. Which would explain why I missed him the time I ran by to gather backdrops.

    I just found this comic just about an hour ago, and so far, I am liking it a lot. I did “cheat” a bit and I see that you are adding even now, it seems by the date listed, so I was curious if you were going to follow Hani and Tiny all the way to level 80 and some of the “WotLK” dungeons.

    Tiny on a cold-weather flying mount, now that should be interesting.

    I, too, just discovered this site today and have started reading, and find it VERY good. As for the dork, you have to click on the orb at the back of the cave and he will appear.
