#173 – “Moving On..”

And thus the conclusion of this particular vignette.. I chose to skip directly showing the fate of the miner and instead go on to talk about it because it felt like it’d actually.. well.. say more. A bit of a well duh way of putting it perhaps, but while showing them just walking away would’ve made for a good narrative beat in the previous page (had there been space), it seemed like it’d just intrude at this point. I did feel it was a decision that was important to have them talk about, though.

    First of all im very happy that they spared the poor miners life. I dont think i wanted to Hani go in that direction and kill maybe not so innocent but unarmed and actually not a fighter miners.

    Not sure if it is intended or not but in square one Lightspark really looks like she can take care of herself and the group, and why not Deadmines with all it has to offer (maybe its just me).

    And another sidenote havnt Hani seem to be a bit more angry lately. Maybe it is the surroundings? The abdominations? Or does she think their mission is more important than she first thought?

      Sorry, but Gnomes NEVER look like they can take care of themselves in melee, that’s what makes it so funny watching one butcher a Tauren. It’s like watching a demented Chihauha going for a Rotwieler, and killing it, lol

      Technically a gnome could put down a Tauren if they got it right and moved fast. What would be needed is for the gnome or Areen in this case is to hamstring the said Tauren on the legs and once they collapsed they need to finish them off with a cut throat or a blade in the stomach. The latter one being an agonising way to go it’s possible Areen could take on one of them down if she’s got the speed,strength and reflexes to do it!

    I love the way Hani is learning “restraint” from Areen. It is so in character that Areen should have a strict chivialrous code of conduct. And it is also a way one knows Hani is really good in intention that when she does come across someone who behaves like that, she responds and also acts thus.

    Tiny never sees beyond the end of Hani’s ear, though! The balance and contrast in the different characters continously make extremely interesting (and often extremely funny) both the situations that they get into and the way those situations affect both individual character development and the way the group works together.

    Thanks very much for making this comic – I have been following it for a long time and it is wonderful! :D
