It was only when actually putting this page together, that I realized how political this and the next few pages might sound. I can assure you, sweet readers, that was no my intention at all. I don't mean to include any real-world politics or ideologies or whatnot. This all pretty much just stemmed from an idea I had, "What if I write a story about a village of monsters, but they're the 'good guys' of the story?" And from there, everything just started falling together, with no intent to include boring real-world stuff. So no, this is not an allegory for anything, nor do I intend for it to be such.

EDIT: You know... looking back at this page, I can see that I haven't quite the level of expressiveness in Deryn's face that she needs. I may have to retopo her again, fixing the loops in her face and adding more vertices and whatnot.

But this is how it works in the real world! That's the whole point! And that is what makes speculative fiction a precious thing.

Yeah, there's a lot you can do with spec-fic which is why it's so much fun. Definitely more than just ray guns or elves prancing around, lots of room for serious discussion. Fun times, heh. Still, it does have to be done right though, as too often spec-fic turns into some sort of author tract, and I have no intention of becoming Jack Chick :P

"What if he (or she) worships their god by sacrificing other one's babies?" :P

More seriously, Orcs are scary because ...? Possibly not because they are huge and strong and tattooed, I bet there is some history about them. I'd assume that if only half of all orcs were like Sardar, Joakim would not had run away from him, he could see the others being at peace with him. Same with the other monsters.

Orcs are scary because... reasons that will become better-explained later on. I will say though, it's related to Hartwig ;)
