Well, the artist actually did two follow up pictures-different outcome scenarios. I won't spoil-take a look at his art if you want to see ;)

He's SO metal that he can carry the flute off. Not many performers could do that ;) Nothing against flutes of course-they're just not the first instrument I think of as far a 'METAL!!!' is concerned :)

Flutes are also cool, but I want something a bit more 'metal' for this chick. In BTB mythos there is an ancient form of legendary dwarf music known as 'heavy metal' that has not been practiced since the dwarf empire was shattered and the people scattered during the war of the dragons 900 years ago. An alliance of dragons and elves attacked the empire when it was exhausted, having held back a great host of gnoll and orc for almost a century. The elves were uneasy at the strength of the dwarf empire, whilst the dragons coveted the mineral wealth of the realm. It is said that the orc and gnoll attacks were encouraged by the draconic/elf alliance as a prelude to their own attack-although this has always been staunchly denied by both parties.

Good stuff :) Yeah, I don't normally fret too much over doing things other people have done (pretty much everything's been done at this stage) but that particular item already exists to the point where it's not worth having-it's a bit played out.

I guess it kind of makes sense, since she's a dwarf, but on the other hand dwarfs tend to be the sort of people to call a spade a spade. They wouldn't re purpose and axe, unless they were some sort of rebellious punk dwarf...damn, now I'm conflicted. Maybe I will give her an axe. Marceline has one as does 'Van Halen, Norse God of Heavy Metal' from 'Dexter's Lab' I'm sure there are other examples too. Not a big deal anyway. I'll make up my mind when I get her design finalised :)

A Bard is planned. Not sure how soon she'll be in it (at the moment she's a rebellious goth/punk dwarf girl with a magic runic lute (was going to make it an axe, but Adventure Time and others beat me to it). She has an ongoing feud with her father (who wants her to become a fighter like a 'real' dwarf) and a bunch of other bards-who she often duels with-think dueling banjos but if the players had magical musical powers(as bards do). She lives in Balgenberg-which is where our heroes are headed on the way to the capitol of the Grand Empire of Austolar. We'll get there one day :)

Yup-it's good for you :) The problem with being a page ahead is that I have to post 2 pages on that first update-which really doesn't do my reserve any good. I currently have 2 new pages finished and a 3rd page drawn and being scanned in right now, so production's going pretty well :)

I wouldn't say it's JUST that-there're jokes and there's story and culture too (who got the 'Dutchess of Malfi' line in this page?). It's possible to have sexy as well as those things. That's all some people see-the skimpy outfits and sexy monster babes, although I try to make things a bit deeper than that-if you have the patience and open mindedness to see the other aspects. If not, there's always the T&A (and if that is all you see that's fine too-I'm not going to tell people how they should read my work-I just hope they have a good time ;) ).

Yup-I decided to skip that so I could bring the two sites back inline with one another :)

Welcome to the intermission! Normal service will be resumed on Saturday August the 30th. In the meantime I'll be posting fan art, sketches, previews and anything else I can get my hands on-so if you have a BTB fan piece in your head, get it in asap!

This piece is by the talented Mr an-kang. Check his stuff out here-
