Re: Comic for June the 20th, 2020

Life expectancy at birth was a brief 25 years during the Roman Empire, it reached 33 years by the Middle Ages and raised up to 55 years in the early 1900s A statistic that is very deceptive and not to be taken on face value. Infant mortality. In the 1850s in the US, life expectancy for newborn boys...

Re: Comic for June the 20th, 2020

I don't like the alleged short lifespan either, even though their childhood is (or was as of 2017 our time) significantly shorter than ours. https://images-wixmp-ed30a86b8c4ca887773594c2.wixmp.com/f/41444526-b6bc-4a30-a898-103b0674da0e/dbmn2h4-44ad1dfa-9090-4139-a7d7-5b96a7f87394.png?token=eyJ0eXAiO...

Possibly Saria took art lessons from Basil Hallward.

(Never heard of him? He's only known for one painting - a picture of Dorian Gray.)

Re: ERIC JUST KISS HER ALREADY

Under normal circumstances I would expect Eric to return to his hometown with Kat. However there is a war going on and it has been implied his hometown was razed in a wolf attack. And with the sinking of his shop he is basically destitute at this point despite not knowing it. So I am pretty sure he...

Re: Comic for June 13, 2020: Working Together

It's been a floating question for a while as to whether or not Raine's powers will become necessary for their escape, but the general consensus is "probably not". With the emphasis on "probably". The catch, of course, is that there may be more than one way for them to get out of this alive, and eve...

Re: ERIC JUST KISS HER ALREADY

You know, in real life everyone has their own story and some other people wander into it, play a part for a while, and quietly wander out again to continue their own stories elsewhere. No need for a dramatic death. Or even a dramatic exit. Maybe over the course of maybe five updates we see in the ba...

In the very-early days of the internet, before automated routing got figured out, any given machine only knew about routers and servers it was connected to. So if you wanted to send a message to someone that used a different server, you had to give the complete route from your server to theirs - in ...

Re: Comic for June 13, 2020: Working Together

Tom once said, in response to a similar question, the keidran languages (high keidran for nobility and such, and low keidran for everyone else) are made primarily of growl and grunt-type noises. How that would actually sound, I have no idea, but that's what I remember. I don't like it. Obviously ke...

Re: Comic for May 30, 2020: Dragon Damage

This is bringing to mind a song cycle that's been developing in the UK filk scene for the last <mumble> years. It's a fantasy epic, in which none of the characters have names, just descriptions. E.g. there's the Warlord, the (late) Watcher on the Tower, the Injured Prince, the Sergeant, etc. The mo...
