#115 – “They Hunger..”

I know people have seen it already, but last week’s voter image is available here, now along with wallpaper sizes that I conveniently forgot earlier. For this week we have a really simple image with Hani, Raene and Dagri. Not much special, but there wasn’t all that much time to figure something out.

So this update. Technically I’m already into monday, but you’ll have to live with the delay. Between heat and other deadlines, it simply took until now before I could get it done. I’m hoping to have the thursday update done in a little more timely fasion, but no promises – start of the coming week might end up being fairly hectic.

Edit: No update this thursday (the 4’th), see this comment. Sorry about that. Should be back to normal on sunday.

    Damn.. Stormwind is crowded if you place it in an RP-fashion O.O

    and why does Rei keeps stabbing at Delgren? the paly only did his Job ;p

    Hani looks so distracted, is she planning what to do or is it just the fatigue that cause her to be so distracted.

    but bigger question: How come that Rei knows that there used to be a good tavern near the park? did she snuck out at night and took a joyride to SW? :-)


    Midnite messai xD

    not able to sleep sux, folks

      My guess is that Hani’s an introvert and gets exhausted by being around people. Many introverts don’t need to actually interact with others to get drained. Just being surrounded by people is enough to shut them off and make them hyper-focus on finding the nearest solution to getting the heck out of dodge.

      And there’s plenty of back story on Rei that we aren’t aware of. She’s made several hints of being familiar with SW so far.

    How on Earth will Areen be introduced when there’s so many ‘tall’ people? Its like finding a needle in a haystack except that needle is tiny, what, will she glomp Hani and just sit on her head?

      My guess is that Hani will trip over her. ;p

      Nah, my guess is that Tee will get separated from the group and Areen will have to save her from getting trampled in the masses.

      As to the comic itself, I wonder if we’ll ever see Te’len transform into anything? I for one don’t like that in WoW you have to have a form regardless of what spec you choose. It’d be nice if there was a viable way to play a druid without having to turn into some beast or a tree. Still, it’d be entertaining Te to transform into a bear and out eat even the burliest dwarf in a tavern. ;p

        If I recall, Malfurion never once shapeshifted into anything. (Though he did grow antlers.. but still!)

    antlers can be grown from birth like the golden eyes

    He grew antlers? Aha, the first steps into developing the “Deer shape”! On a whim, I googled for “deer” and found… “Deer butt art!”. And somehow, I can actually vividly imagine Malfurion’s private quarters (no pun intended) to be decorated by art made of the rear sides of deer! *exits while ranting*

      I always thought the antlers were just a piece of epic head gear. ;p

      Still, I think a number of the druid gear sets look cool. It would be nice if there were viable play options for druids that didn’t involve shifting.

      Te’len has the Feral Heart set, right? That’s a nice looking set.

    malfurion sure never shapeshifted but i bet he can transform into whatever pleases him :)

    Rei’s being familiar with stomrwind thou? if she is that she sure complained alot about the travel on the ship. it would mean she has traveled forth ‘n’ back from there atleast once so she should know the trip

    Well, you’ve got a point there, Elveswarrior. She’d know the trip then. Yet I have to give her this; I myself complain regularly about things I’m already familiar with, so she could too. Especially seeing her complaining doesn’t seem to be “to simply express her feelings” as much as “a way to conduct herself”. I.e. she seems to be assuming a verbally strong demeaneor, allowing her to pose as self-confident.

    Weeeee! I see an Ishbell!! :D :D :D Mucho <3 Nhan.

    I really love the crowdedness of Stormwind; just how it should be. No naked dancing nelfs on postboxes, etc. Then again, if they're heading to a tavern maybe I've spoken too soon…

    Oh no! Don’t you go tempt Nhani now, Ish! ;)

    if we need to portrait the ingame Stormwind then we’ll need a handful of goldsellers. some beggers and a few naked bank chars running around ;P

    and btw before i forget loved the ccrwll sound *stomach am hungry feed me sound* in the 7 panel.
    just something one dont see every day… ah now i need to find that deviant art picture whit an night elf priest that gets hungry and finds an cute murlock.

    Well, first, nice to be back again(i went to pinkpop for 3 days, very cool!)

    And nice to see another cool update!
    this might become a nice begin for another fight, couse if they go find a tavern, let’s hope they choose the blue recluse, couse if they end up in the slaughtered lamb, it might become quite interesting! since that place has warlocks in spades!!(witch is what they are looking right?)
    Also, i agree with some of the ppl here, Te’len needs to toughen up, couse she’s so damn naieve! and that is’t a good thing when in lands unknown…

    Hmm, I wouldn’t call it naive, per se. But it’s interesting to see how she is slowly confronted by the scale of her task. The target is known, but she cannot yet fathom the means to that end. It’s not always difficult to accept that one will have to just dive right into the deep and trust that things will work out. Faith, luck and a bit of brute force.

    but she seems to have no knowledge of people att all, the fact that she did’t even think that the guy would disguise himself did’t even occur to her! she’s been so isolated by her calling i think that she barely has any idea how to proceed.

    Right, just randomly For Your Information(tm) there won’t be an update today (thursday, 4’th). #116 requires some pre-work to be assembled, and I’ve had a pretty crazy start of a week, so I’ve simply not had the time. Things should calm down after today (I sincerely hope) so unless there’s any further unforseen obstacles, there should be an update on sunday as regular.

    Sorry about the added wait.

    No prob Nhani, hope life lets ya relax a bit.

    Malfurions antlers came when he used druid-ic magic a lot, but some druids are born with them.
    Mostly it means the person who’s born with em is going to fullfill sometihng of greatness.
