Here’s some bits that got cut out of the upcoming Orc Stain trade. About 10 pages in and the end still nowhere near in sight, there was no way I could fit it in/finish it in time.
The story plan started out as a simple orc scavenger idea, then quickly turned into a sweeping western-ish revenge adventure where the main orc gets his body taken over by a rogue ‘marg’ (the fuzzy hat creatures, like what Zazu is). Basically, it gives me the means to expand on what the Nymphs are all about, which I’ve only just glossed over in the main series. I think I’ll eventually turn it into an oversized one-shot at some point… but, y’know, time is a motherbitch.
