#281 – “The Horizon is Always out of Reach”

Though seeing how it’s now been established that Hani Foonmall should clearly be voiced by Jennifer Hale, perhaps it would’ve been more suitable for her to say “I should go.” instead. Hm. Anyway.

Picking an appropriate length for the journey between Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor is difficult – on one hand, it’s across a pretty large sea in a sailboat, meaning that it could well take quite some time. On the other, the game abstracts it down to about a minute across, and tactfully avoids suggesting just how long it actually would be. I ultimately settled for the relatively ambigous “days”, part because they might’ve made quite a bit of progress already, they still need to round Kalimdor so they’ll see it long before they reach harbor, and because knowing Hani that could easily mean a month’s worth of days or more.

Still deciding how many actual pages it’ll take, but I have a few rough ideas. We’ll simply have to see.

    Tiny lost for words due to Hani.

    Who would’ve guessed?

    Kinda unrelated to the comic at hand, but I was looking back through them yesterday, and it’s amazing how far the models have come since the comic began.

      I can barely look back, I admit. The models, the lighting… eugh. It’s all part of the natural growth of course, but yeah. Some of the old work is just horrendous.

    Add my vote for Jennifer Hale; she’s one of the best video game voice actors out there in my experience.

    When I played Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, I never managed to finish the game with a male Jaden. Jennifer Hale’s vocals made Phil Tanzini’s performance sound laughable.

    So, your people will talk to her people, and you guys will get that BtT movie going, right?

      Oh sure, we’ll get right on that once we’re done giving kittens wings and made puppies able to fart rainbows. It’ll be magical, just you wait.

    That’s the nice thing about doing a comic, not everything has to happen in real time ;D. Imagine having to keep the boat comics on for months!(that’s how long it takes to sail between continents in real life)
