I know it’s late – I could blame anything from my schedule utterly kersploding yesterday to a meeting today going from an expected half hour to two and a half hours to a presently pounding headache. In my defence, it’s still sunday, and I never explicitly said update times are at mornings, it’s just the time I’ve been trying to aim for.
So back on the road and familiar travel dialogue. It took me quite awhile to figure out what exactly to put here – I knew I wanted a lighthearted tone to weigh up for the heavier drama, but it still needs to be character moments. In the end I settled for the question of why the duo lacks a mount, which’s a fair question – as is Tiny’s suggested reason for it.
I kept the lighting setup from #62 – I thought it turned out great, so I decided to keep with it. I might very well keep running it over for a fair bit of the Ashenvale journey remaining so far, which is still a fair bit of course. Still, we’re making progress on where everything is headed, which’s a good thing. I’ve got scripts running up to #68 and rough plans as far as #74. At this rate, we should hit chapter four sometime at the start of 2009.
