Your rage may have subsided, Glon, but it looks like Jone has plenty to share with you. I suspect that you're gong to come to feel that the burning has deserted you. Hope your plot armor is up to snuff!

If he can teach Jone to overcome the rage then she can switch sides and help them.

One of them will be dead before that happens.

Perhaps. But Glon seemed to be getting through to her before, they were friends before she went over the edge.

Which is why she went over the edge.

They were friends, but they had a falling-out.

Orcish style.

I forget though, when did Jone go from looking like a skeleton to looking normal?

At some point off panel. Maybe as a side effect from butchering her followers--she absorbed their souls and started healing (and other things--notice the lack of the 'mouthful of spikes' look).

Nice speech by Shaija. But the last two panels are magnificent. I know actors who can't convey that much emotion without a paragraph of dialogue.

And a lovely reminder that Shaija is an ORC not human and what that means. :-) :-)

Honestly, though, there's nothing uniquely orcish about that kind of sentiment, nor in there anything especially human about wanting to reason with Jone instead. There are plenty of humans who would do exactly what Shaija did and take exactly the same position on the topic of redeeming Jone.

Yeah, it's one of the problems with fantasy races. They're pretty much just rubber-forehead-humans, because whatever you have them do, humans also do.

The point of a fantasy race is to use them to explore or represent aspects of Humanity.

Science Fiction is the place to try to dream up things we'd never experienced (a logical impossibility, mind you, but that's the exercise). Fantasy races are incarnations of aspects of Humanity.

In my world: Orcs are (at least, idealogically) barbaric aggression and rage. The Goblinoids are War, Soldiers and the Martial way of life. Wood Elves are ecological obsession. Drow are backstabbing, cheating and self-serving system manipulation. Hobbits are the peaceful life, withdrawing from important matters. Dwarves are industry and corporation. Kobolds are confusion, an inability to comprehend and an unwillingness to try.

The joke/point/message -if there is indeed such a thing to take away from YAFGC- is that once you get to know them they're all just people.

At least, in format. For the sake of story, humour and punchlines I've strayed from such strictures, but that's how I see and approach fantasy.

Huh. I'm a Halfling/Kobold-hybrid a lot of the time, apparently. :p
