#141 – “A Bridge Too West”

Welcome to Westfall indeed. I rather like having at least one sort of introductory page for each new area, as such – one with a large pane just for the sake of. Westfall has a rather visually distinct aesthetic, so I’m hoping it’ll set an interesting tone for the while we’re there.

    I had a flashback to when the worgen with red glowing eyes in Ashenvale were sort of, at the side, glaring at them.. Although they havn’t noticed this time…

    I see someone getting a metal claw at them, indeed!

    Tiny’s opinion about those scarecrows is about to change, very rapidly. Wonder what she will say after, since Hani will probably not say much at all, just her well known glances and looks, which work just fine!

    Keep it up!

    If by a unique tone and visual esthetic, you mean brown, boring and grindy, sure :p

    I’m kidding, Excellent job on the comic, started reading this when you got linked over at WoW.com the other week, and I got hooked (As well as getting my friends hooked too)

      I actually have part a fondness for Westfall in terms of visual look and feel – it’s very “autumny”; the same way I like Azshara (same reason), Darkshore (mist, rain, etc) and Zangarmarsh (night); of course, all four of those are zones I generally also can’t wait to get out of once I’m almost done questing through them..

      Anyhow, it’s always good to hear people enjoy it, and that it has the opportunity to find more of its target audience! I have quite a lengthy narrative planned out too really, so I hope it’ll remain interesting throughout the whole journey!

    Makes me wonder who on Azeroth would even go trough the proccess of thinking
    “HEY! my crow’s need a REAL scare, lets build an army of mechanical weed harvesters.. AN OH! lets also make them look like scarecrows… AND! lets give them…ehm.. RED eyes! to scare people… and.. OH! Tall, and strong!”

    Im certain it was a gnome…

    and here come the big question.
    why couldn’t engineer skin them before 3.2.0
    any way any one more then me that think that westfall have an other dialect then Stormwind and elvynn forest plus maybe redrick?
    that just something that i have been thinking about an bit from time to time.
    second question whit westfall out of order how did stormwind get its food?
    and as always wounderfull page.

    It’s the Strawinator! O.O

    Ain’t got more to say about this page really, except the fact that Westfall do look like a mixture of The Barrens and Azshara: dull and desolate but with a autumn feeling to it, which makes it a more interesting place to quest on – not only that, you won’t have to drag with the Barrens chat kiddos the Horde does provide. ;)

    I tend to think of Westfall’s color palette as being not merely autumnal, but *harvest*.

    As for the harvest golems, they’re probably some goblin’s idea. And he decided that he’d make them look like scarecrows so that they’d serve two purposes at once.

    The harvest golems where indeed the idea of one of the goblins employed by the Defias, but they did their job to good, since they drove off or killed the farmers instead of just scaring them in submission. for more info go read WOW RPG Dark Factions and the Monster Guide. both are nice reads even if u don’t do the tabletop.
