Sorry for the delay! Also, please note there is no comic next week. I will be on vacation in Austin, TX, attending RTX.
Kithra hasn't really done much these last few... chapters. I've tossed around a couple different ideas for her, but honestly, she doesn't really have a lot of alone time to even plot an escape.
Also, I realized after drawing him several times, evil unnamed troll captor has no tusks. I even considered a little side comic where he was trying to release the god to hopefully get his wish granted of growing a pair (lol).
I had a lot of ideas for the troll village that no longer fit in the context of the comic. I kind of like how this page came out, though. Talk soon!
Have fun at rtx!
Great follow-up, Maiu! Have a great vacay!
Small, atmospheric little village...ette. This is making sense now: it's revange for a perceived act of aggression against these trolls. They're planning to offer her up as a sacrifice to either appease their god; or, going off that "last" amulet, maybe they're going after something bigger. Resurrect their lost loved ones? Nothing directly suggests that the Loa have the power (or even the inclination) to do that. In fact, in "Shadows of the Horde", the Loa are presented as pretty sadistic gods, who quite enjoy feasting on the souls of their followers. Still, interesting to speculate.
Have fun in Texas!
Enjoy your vacation.
