Title: New story comic strip : Fierce
Post by: light wolf on February 10, 2018, 01:40:20 PM
Nice job for this new story. I hope we will really enjoy it.

Especially as Shiala is my favorite among all the ITE game secondary characters.

So, Wrah is back too for this story !

When I finished ITE game (years ago), I was wondering what this wolf has become
(perhaps not just recovering after being punched by Okk in a Bud Spencer style !)

An interesting start to this story.  The she-wolf seems to be the Alpha female though I'm not sure where she stands in her tribe.  Is Gar in her tribe or a competing one?  That might have been clarified in the game.  Wrah's status is also ambiguous at this point.  He seems to be the tribal bad boy and a thorn in Shiala's side.

Again, something our writers have forgotten.  Not everyone played the game.  The writer's assume we know the backstory and that is an error.  I'm hoping they will enlighten us without cryptic clues that requires knowledge of the game.

Unless the comic strip will explain what those on the quest did in the game to Gar, the authors have made an error.  Never assume all your readers are familiar with the game.  Sometimes you need to give additional background information.

Have always wondered if anyone outside those on the quest knew the fate of the Orb of Storms.  Our wolf might not know, but today's strip does hint that some suspect.  Still wonder when the High Priestess will have her tail put through the ringer for blackmailing all the tribal leaders.

Hopefully by the end of the story enough background information will be filled-in to make the story understandable (and enjoyable) without completely spoiling the last part of the game.

I'm curious to know what a hydroelectric power plant can do in a feudal setting.  There doesn't seem to be any electrical devices and the batteries seem to hold their power with no degeneration. 

Might be more of an irrigation system and flood control.  With the drought, wonder if the water has receded enough to cease generation.  The drought does have one benefit for the dam.  Lower water levels give those running the dam a chance to remove the debris that has built up over the years.

Seems to me there is just a little mistake...
The Orb of Storm is blue. Purple is for the Orb of Hands, isn'it ?

Hum. You might be right there. I may have given the artist the wrong image from ITE:QTFO to work with. Let me see about fixing that if it's wrong.

Ah the bane of any series writer, continuety.  Saw the note about the strip of 5/17/18.  There are observant readers and they do call you out on such things.

Didn't I say that sooner or later the secret regarding the orb's fate would become known?  Will now wait to see the repercussions. 

Will our two wolves spread the secret beyond North Island?
Would our high priestess be willing to kill to maintain the illusion that she has the orb?
Will somebody try to recover the orb?
Will any of the morph leaders seek vengeance for the extortion paid to the priestess?

Regarding the strip of 7/11/18

Looks like our guy just got shot down.  Bad enough she said no, but than to laugh at him.  Can you say humiliation?  Quick exit stage left.
