#137 – “A Price Steak”

I’m going to go ahead and link you ahead to the WoW Webcomic Quest which recently included a cameo of a few characters that should be rather familiar by now; I’m told they’ll get a few spoken lines in the (at this time) next update, so I’m quite curious to see how they’re characterized – especially since it might suggest quite a few things about how other people see the characters. I’ll confess I haven’t read Quest on length otherwise – I actually don’t read much in the way of WoW webcomics at all. Now I know there’s some out there with stunning visuals, good/clever writing or funny remarks and quips (I do check back semiregularely on some of them just to see if they came up with something new and interesting) but very few of them actually draw in enough for more than that.

    Why does Tiny afraids so much of Hogger?It’s just an elite.It can be killed easy,especially Hani she has killed a bunch of murlocs easy in the past

      the dreaded hogger is no pathetic murloc. He is a gnoll, born for a sole purpose to destroy all life. Beware his cry on the wind. For once Hogger has your scent…there is no escape, save through death.

    I think it’s cuz Hani doesn’t like to cash in bounties…

    Just my two cents but the way tiny said that brings a picture to mind of an Hogger being told off by his former playmate, owner or friend Tiny…
    Big Gnoll, small but loud Tiny and allot of suprised looks from the group…
    Think oversized puppy :P

    Just for the comic effect…

    Tiny: “Hogger is… my father!” *dun duun duuuuuun*

    I do love how people talk about hogger there, he makes me think of a Gnoll/dire troll combo in appearance :P

    Hani wasent always so quiet was she? i remember she spoke quite bit before they left for stormwind.

      Well, like most dialogue in Beyond the Tree, it’s arguable that it’s just Te’len voicing an opinion or making a nudge since Hani is very much the distant sort that can be very sparse with words.

      She’ll speak when spoken to or when she feels there’s something she has to say; now with both Areen and Te’len around to reply to Tiny’s attempts at casual conversation, Hani isn’t ‘needed’ to speak as often.

      Of course, I also tend to think that the interesting (and challenging) thing with Hani’s dialogue is that a large chunk of it isn’t even spoken – she does a good deal of her communication with only glances, gestures and facial expressions.

        i guess. she still spoke more often before they met te’len though.

        Much because Tiny speaks a whole lot all the time, and back then there was only Hani to respond, so she was more prompted to speak. Now when there’s Te’len and Areen to pick up the dialogue, there’s less such

    Nice one! now as to Hogger,maybe he had something to do with Tiny’s since reduction!! altrough gnolls are’t known to be smart, unless its about torture….

    Anyway, let’s hope we get another epic fight soon again!!

    Hallo again Nhani,

      The shield is actually quite the kitbash – the model and the base textures used are in the game, but well.. the actual shield combines something like three different textures just to look like it does. The whole lot of the characters are very much like that, in fact – they can be approximated, but they’d be a bit harder to replicate! Still, you even photoshopped in Hani’s shoulder strap – I didn’t expect that!

      It was interesting to see how someone else characterize them – where the similarities and differences are! It’s fun too to see alternate takes sometimes, and I hope you found them interesting to wield!
