At least we know *you’ll* never sack your artist.
Wouldn’t be the first time a solo author sacked themselves as the artist
Not sure where this came from. Are you suggesting I be fired from YAFGC?
I’m going to take a guess that another webcomic @Nick H follows has run into delays because the author and artist parted ways, and he is saying that he’s happy that can’t happen here since you are both entities in one.
Ohhh, okay! I’ll take that. Yeah, when I have a disagreement with myself I usually just sit down and talk it over with myself over drinks.
I generally sort it out.
To be fair, Erfworld’s the sort of property to bounce back, and I daresay the next right-brainer is very likely to be a far better fit.
Let me guess: EastGate is on the other side of the Barony (or is it a Duchy? can’t remember if Luke is a Duke or a Baron o_O)
And… now hearing those blackbird’s from "Danger Mouse" whenever they address the evil Baron
Greyfort is a Duchy in the Kingdom of Elegrost. It used to be a Barony, but after some supremely helpful deeds including the hosting of a tourney to find a new King and fighting against the evil Hobgoblin King Karrak, the lands were extended and Lucas promoted.
Greyfort is located East of center and along the southern end of the Kingdom, very close to the Northern edge of Wyldwood Forest, where the Satyrs, WoodElves, fairies and so on live.
It’s a short ride from there to the High Elf city of Elwood.
EastGate is a fortified city located at the extreme East of Elegrost bordering the rival Kingdom of Lanley. It hasn’t been seen in the comic yet, but there’s a similar -if much MORE fortified city called NorthGate which borders with the Goblin Lands. That’s where Sir Catianus rules with his girlfriend Adwen the Cruel.
Someone needs to find her a new wyvern
Maybe when they liberate Charlie, Duhr could find (or make) her one
Is there a map of all this? I’m a visual person; It’d be _so_ much easier for me to keep these locations straight if I could see their relative locations for myself.
I have an old map that’s available in one of the books. Volume 2, I think. And I expanded it in a later book to include some of the Eastern continent. But a detailed one of Elegrost and the surrounding areas is a good idea. I’ll work on that.
I’d like to see a map too!
It might make it easier to share it with us, if you remember that very accurate maps are usually produced by societies much more organized and scientific than the Lands-within-Sight-of-the-Black-Mountain seem to be. I, for one, promise not to complain about "changes to the canon map" if whatever character draws it turns out to have been mistaken about the actual layout; or some random magical upheaval shifts things around, off-stage, without anyone noticing; or magic like the stuff hiding Elwood confuses the mapmaker; or anything.
(Oh, and congratulations on your latest milestone, Mr. Morris; I didn’t feel like signing up for the Chat, and sometimes go most of a year between binges on this excellent comic…but it brings me joy even more constantly, as I have a couple old strips that are always funny where I notice them every couple of weeks, and I will keep coming back here, forever.)
I’d like to see a map as well. Nothing fancy, just enough to give me a feel for where places are in relation to each other. Hope you have a chance to get one up.
I love Cadugan saying "You know I hate people" like he’s tired of having to remind him. "You know I hate broccoli."
I hope you don’t mind me likening this to a sitcom. You and I grew up on the same television, and some of the tropes are still highly entertaining. For example, the phrase "a few weeks." As if.
No, I don’t mind at all! YAFGC pretty much *is* a sitcom, really, though I hadn’t considered comparing it to primtime 70’s/80’s television before.
I like to think it’s more "M*A*S*H" and less "Full House" though.
Yup, totally early "M*A*S*H"
Later M*A*S*H – when you got serious drama mixed in with the comedy.
Okay, this makes me happy.
I almost want to see a map or two of all the kingdoms, I’m loving how no group just… Dissappears
You can almost hear Cad’s tone.
is it me or is lucas the ‘wife’ in the relationship.
How do you mean? They’re both guys…?
just the mannerisme.
What are you saying, Lucas is effeminate?
I’d say submissive. Emotional. Maybe impulsive.
Gay men playing the female role also tend to be more flamboyant, more of what you would associate with "flaming gay". Under normal circumstances – if sexual orientation doesn’t come up -, you couldn’t tell a dominant gay man from a straight one.
It’s similar with women, too. The dominant partner in a lesbian couple is often what less sensible people would discribe as "dyke".
That’s all with a lot of generalization, though, and might not apply to every LGBT couple.
One that that bothers me about the title of this page: Luke doesn’t have a sore spot, _Cad_ is the one who has a sore spot
Unless you mean because Luke doesn’t have a family (whatever happened to Smitharm? after Glon went ‘home’ that time and found his ‘dad’ had a new much younger bride, we haven’t seen him at all, you would think Luke would acknowledge his real dad, wouldn’t you? o_O)
Well Smitharm is only his biological dad, Lucas never had any connection with him as a parent. That is like saying that an adopted kid has to meet his "real" parents. It is insulting to both the kid and the parents that raised him. His real dad is the one that he grew up calling dad.
Except, Glon recognized _both_ fathers, but then again, Luke was brought up to be pretty much a typical royal snob (just remember how he acted around Glon, including how he got petulant after Glon died)
But, saying all that, Luke _has_ grown up to be a decent guy, that’s why wondered why he hadn’t had any contact with Smitharm, even just to make sure he is okay or maybe make him the Royal Smith
Lucas never had a mother growing up. Yeah, he likes Glon’s mother, and considers her family, but he can’t see them very often. I think, seeing Cadugan’s mother, he had a sudden deep yearning to have a mother. And she is his mother-in-law, so he wants to get to know her, form a connection he has been missing.
This is Lucas’ only memory of his biological father.
Oh right, forgot about that, nevermind then
Hm, for a second there I thought Cadugan was annoyed because elves prefer to sleep in the forest without roof etc., so I thought Lucas’ offer was impolite on a cultural level.
His mother is human
