This is yet another example (much like most of the Deadmines, really..) of a case where I took a small sort of event that I figured I’d just sneak in as a few panes within another page and then thought about it and decided that I probably really should expand on it a little more than that. In this case I’d just planned to put the descent in the background as they were talking about something completely different and have it over with.. but as I was looking around the scene, I suddenly felt that the descent itself needed its own page somehow. And then, of course, I needed to come up with why it should take an entire page and.. yeah. Here we are.
I know I’ve said it many times before, but as far as character growth goes, I tend to find the interaction between Hani and Te’len some of the most interesting because of how different they are. Seeing them building a rapport when under normal circumstances they likely wouldn’t even have given eachother a second thought is something I rather enjoy.
