Some pages I just have to play by ear. I knew pretty much what needed to happen, but with the majority of the page centered around events rather than dialogue, there was a fair bit of trial and error involved. There was also a few things that didn’t work – I’d planned for Te’len to do another attempt at utilizing roots, but.. there wasn’t really any good locations with dirt allowing for it. Tiny did get to finally use the compact Harvest Reaper she’s had hanging around in the background since the smelter, in the least.
Ultimately, I needed the entirety of the ship population to be (or in the least seem to be) more than the group could handle – if it hadn’t been, then they could’ve just stormed it from the getgo, which I didn’t really want. It likely would’ve been a whole lot faster, but I don’t think it would’ve been as interesting.
