That's hilarious.
That has got to be the biggest understatement in dwarven history.

Thanks, Splint, Reudh. :) Glad you liked it. Here's a bit more (bottom of post). (the frequency with which I post chapters may slow down a bit after this one, just so you guys know.)

@ Splint - the mastodon reminds me of this.
    Also... I, too, find the mentioned quote hilarious.

SHAAAAAME. SHAAAAAME.

A pair of FBs from Spearbreakers. i wanted to submit all four when they were done, but two now, two later is just as good. Ebra's taking more time than i was expecting.



Stozu, the coke quadruped with deadly spittle, with Ugeth making a cameo in the background.



Rufithi, the gas spewing pterosaur who just recently made himself known during The Master's reign.

Yeah, no kidding.

Yep. I wanted a twist, and that was Tames... everything followed logically from there - Tames was a powerful twist. I have the next portion written out... but I'm not sure I like it at all. The whole "Parasol Trench" arc went really smoothly because I had most of it planned and written out in advance. Now I'm hitting a "writer's block" wall. I think I'm going to have to make the transition from detailed narrative to condensed narrative, at least for a little while... otherwise the story will drag itself out to unbearable lengths. I considered skipping a large portion of everything by blasting Vanya halfway to kingdom come (so she could wake up a few days later), but it seems too contrived to me.

Splint - very awesome FB pics. :) I especially like the amount of detail in the top one... and I laughed at the "armpit vapors" coming from Rufithi. Maybe it wasn't what you intended, but some juvenile part of me found it funny all the same.

Huh, didn't notice that. There are holes in the ribs and tail where the vapor is coming out actually. And if you've hit a wall I might be able to help. I might not be able to do much with my bit but I can certainly help others out.

Ahhhh, didn't notice the tail. I suppose I could make another juvenile statement regarding that, but I won't. lol

Thanks for the offer. :) I sent you a rough draft (very rough) of the next chapter. If you want to write out the battle from a Parasol/Ballpoint soldier's point of view, and Draconik doesn't object, that's perfectly fine with me. Thanks to Vanya's first-person narration, the final clash won't get much attention from her. (there are major drawbacks to first-person narration. I tried to sidestep it by saying she was pasting some sort of combat report (spoilers) in with her regular entries, but... not sure how well I pulled it off.)

I'd say the doc's poetic flourish was a nice little detail. And I think I will, depending on how badly the fight went for which side.
