Orctober 2021 day 31 (and Sunday Gnomedays!)

Last day last daaaaaaaaay, ya maggots!!! Today’s from Qd, “Spirits.” With a nod to my intended theme of Stones, too.

πŸ’«πŸ§šβ€β™€οΈ Blessed Samhain as well to all my witchy kin celebrating this day of remembrance, otherworldliness, and magic πŸ§™β€β™€οΈπŸ’«

(And of course, Blessed Beltane to all celebrating in the southern hemisphere!)

Considering the prompt, and the similarity of these hats to certain pointed others, I couldn’t resist another Onna and Tock moment to wrap up this challenge! Thanks so much once again to Qdnox and Hitorikart for the prompt lists, I had a wonderful time. Everybody please check out their work, links to their pages are below!

Aaaaaaand of course, stay tuned tomorrow as we slide right into the next faerie-lovely challenge! Hope you all like what I posted this month, and look forward to what’s to come.

Orctober 2021 day 30

Today’s from Qd’s prompt for yesterday, “…a pumpkin?”

The Orcs of “Tock the Gnome” are hunter/gatherers, living in a climate that is temperate, with a full range of seasons. Pumpkins seem to have originated in tropical/subtropical climates here on Earth, so I think that any Orc stumbling upon one as they forage would be quite surprised!

Tock’s realm is of Faerie though, so you never know what could bleed through where it’s not “supposed” to! πŸŽƒ

Orctober 2021 day 29 (and Fanart Friday with comic review – “Orcs!”)

Today’s prompt from Hitorik! “Embassy (of the Horde).”

So, bending the rules again to fit the idea of embassy in general, specifically “a deputation or mission sent by one ruler or state to another.” Considering how Orcs are treated in a lot of fantasy media, still, I think that any Orc-positive work that any of us do is in the spirit of embassy to the less-Orc-positive parts of fandom and genre!

And on that note…

For Fanart Friday, above is Arn and Bog, from Christine Larsen’s “Orcs!”

And here (finally!) is my review of that delightful series:

Orctober 2021 day 28

Today’s from Qd, “Coffee break!”

So, though we’re faaaaaaar from this in canon, there IS coffee in “Tock the Gnome.” Actia has access to it already, Bumble will be introduced to it eventually, and then of course so will everyone else.

…..Tock doesn’t need any, though, so it looks like Onna gets a coffee break on her own!

(And of course, Actia and Bumble getting coffee first is no accident, thanks and props to my coffee-loving Wife πŸ’œ)

Orctober 2021 day 27 (and World Building Wednesday!)

Today’s from both Qd and Hitorik’s prompts of “Warlords/Strategies” and “Orgrimmar Orphanage” – which means, with a pivot to Tock’s realm, for “Tock the Gnome” World Building Wednesday we’re taking a look at what happens when an Orcish Chieftain is cut down before their heir is of age.

Orctober 2021 day 25

Bumble: “Onna? ONNA!!”

(No response.)

Tock, get her down from there!”

Tock: “Absolutely not! Look what fun she’s having!”

Today’s from Hitorik, “Flying an Airship!” Considering the method-of-travel of the heroes of my comic, how could I resist?

Orctober 2021 day 24

Today’s from both Qd and Hitorik again, but day 12’s prompts – “Gathering” and “Homeland/Place of…the Heart” πŸ’œ

This is “Tock the Gnome” canon in a vagueish way. BUT can’t say why without spoilers!

(And on that note, no Sunday Gnomedays this week, to focus on this! Regular Gnomish posting – and then some – will resume on the 31st.)
