Yeah, Varam will definitely be here to stay! He was one of a set of four characters I vaguely sketched out just as I was making comic #1, of whom we've now met three :)

I'm glad you guys liked this one - I really struggled with it because I basically worked out the next one then realised it barely features Varam, and he'd just arrived so I had to invent a strip in the middle to showcase the character a bit more. Starting with "show off this character" turned out to be quite a hard ask as a basis for a strip though, so I'm glad it went OK in the end :)

I have no clue how that could become plot relevant, but then I only know the plot ahead in very, very loose detail, so you never know!

Fun fact, I talked to a friend of mine today who used the exact same sentence as above, verbatim, with his voice drenched in sarcasm, while talking about our dnd campaign, and now this phrasing has me VERY suspicious... ;D

Yes, I think it's fair to say that the characters are rather more surprised than the readers by this turn of events :P

I hope the joke in the last panel isn't too obscure - or at least makes sense when you look it up :)

I've not started on #11 yet, but I have the next six or seven strips planned in my head at least.

I got it. :)

Looking forward to more. Really enjoying what we've seen of the setting too.

Yeah, a lot of the setting is just a re-cut dump of medieval Georgian stuff I'm reading - lots of references to medieval epics from the period, and also there'll be quite a bit of stuff about more recent folklore in there as well :) It's a nice alternative way to process all the information I'm dumping into my brain via my work.
