I’ll be one of the guests of honor at Midwest Furfest in Chicago this weekend! Sofawolf Press will be there selling copies of Digger–come out, grab a book, get ’em signed! Or just come out and say hi!

ETA: Okay, some of you may have noticed that Murai was missing her sling in the version of this uploaded earlier today. Mea culpa. Artist fail. She’s still in a sling.

    I have to say. Digger and Surka interactions are some of my favorites. Haha, that’s fantastic.

  2. Aria says:

    Has Jhalm been wading where he shouldn’t?

  3. Kayru says:

    Aw, wish I could be there.

    Gosh, I know Jhalm’s not necessarily a villain, at least not entirely, but man. I gotta admit I hate him. XD

  4. Ian says:

    Nice to see that Digger’s got her priorities sorted.

    And it should be… INTERESTING to see how the hyenas handle this. I’m aching for a Bone Mother-Jhalm chat.

  5. Coyoty says:

    Ooch. They pinch.

  6. Recka says:

    Grim Eyes looks like she’s missing a hand.

  7. DanielCoffey says:

    I see Murai’s arm is out of the sling after that long hike. Glad she is recovered, poor girl.

  8. Rhio2k says:

    Yes, Digger. Crawdads. Focus, woman!

  9. Cerulean says:

    I expect it can be a little stressful being in a country that leaves you no idea of what to take literally anymore.

  10. abb3w says:

    Or if not stressful, certainly confusing.

  11. Lindale says:

    Stessful and/or confusing, but never dull…

  12. Vik-Thor says:

    Have fun @ MFF! Wish I was gonna be there!

  13. Cheri says:

    I’m gonna be there!

  14. Marrock says:

    You don’t f**k with the tribe…

  15. Carapace says:

    Jhalm wears a mask? I don’t remember that. Masks have, so far, been on Very Dangerous People. Much worse than Jhalm.

  16. TekServer says:

    > You don’t f**k with the tribe…
    Yeah, but you don’t f*ck with the Veiled, either. This certainly wouldn’t be a one-sided contest either way.


  17. JewelWolf says:

    If my memory serves correctly, didn’t Jhalm kill that flying mouse once?

  18. Blob says:

    If MY memory serves, Jhalm took on TWO cold servants with only a blind acolyte to help him. If he’s an indication of how tough the Veiled are, that’s saying something, especially since the best a hyena war party could do was delay the cold servants.

  19. Exindiv says:

    Once again, Digger is struck by only the truly salient part of the conversation: arthropodic perversity. This is worse than gerbils jumping you in a dark alley or the IRS come to call for an extensive audit. This is crawdads in the trousers.

  20. Traxer says:

    Ah, the progression of priorities…can’t get more brilliant than this. Glad to see Digger’s still Digger after all this. ^^

  21. Kerrick says:

    On the upside, e’s got a start to a good gumbo.

  22. TekServer says:

    @Blob: well, in all fairness, we know that the Veiled have magic swords. If the hyenas have no such magical implements, and the Cold Servants require magical weapons to be hit, then they would not fare well. But against the Veiled, they would not be so handicapped (since the Veiled, despite their magical swords, are still merely human), and the fight would be much more even.


  23. Argent says:

    Whose side are the crawdads on?

  24. Prismcat says:

    Is anyone but me thinking that Digger’s oath to protect the tribe is going to suddenly become very inconvenient, here?

    I mean, I’m not saying she shouldn’t protect Grim Eyes and everyone. I’m just saying…


  25. wolfofsilver says:

    Oh bloody hell…. Seriously, Jhalm? Right now? Couldn’t this wait until AFTER the big bad Dead God/Demon is taken care of? Jhalm definitely doesn’t have his priorities straight.

    Not that I WANT him to go after the Hyenas–no sir. I like them alive, thank you. Just wondering what set THIS little twist into motion (aside from the crawdads).

  26. Tindi says:

    You have to remember the Veiled serve ALL gods. I don’t think Jhalm wants Digger to even kill a dead one. Also, Sweetgrass Voice’s power lies mostly in persuasion, and Jhalm seems a bit… easy to persuade in the direction of violence.

  27. Hunter says:

    Jhalm probably thinks that the hyenas are helping Digger evade him…

  28. AlpineBob says:

    OK, I know it was done in a hurry after the post was finished but I have issues with that sling.
    Mostly that at least part of it should go UP around the neck. Right now it is gonna tend to slide right, while Murai’s arm will tend to slide left – wich leaves a tendency of the two to part ways. Not exaactly ideal.
    Or is the sling going around the body and holding her arm braced against her torso? That would work.

    In any case, “…crawdads? Really?” cracks me up every time Digger says it. Awesomeness!

  29. mouse says:

    remember that the cold servants appear to be hyenas. jhalm may figure the local hyenas are in league with them in attacking the temple. so he might figure he’s doing the right thing.

    then again…not sure that incident with the winged rat was ever really explained….

  30. Kisune says:

    Jhalm always seemed a bit too dark for trusting, imo. I wonder if Sweetgrass Voice may have turned him…

  31. Lucius Appaloosius says:

    I dunno –

    Metaphorical crawdads don’t really have much flavor to ’em…. 7@=Q

  32. JewelWolf says:

    Wait… if Urusla changed the sling… maybe that means she actually reads all this… I LOVE YOU URSULA!!!!

  33. Rhio2k says:

    Didn’t Grim Eyes already pwn Jhalm once?

  34. Mark Antony says:

    @Kerrick: Just make sure you don’t leave the Okra on the vine for too long. They don’t have as much mass as the squash, but there’s enough of ’em to mob you to death if you’re not careful.

  35. KNO3 says:

    Vampire Okra?

  36. JewelWolf says:

    Aren’t we all glad that none of these vampire veggies sparkle?

  37. Rowanmdm says:

    @JewelWolf Such an appropriately timed comment…

  38. Areetsasaurus says:

    I get the idea that life’s about to get pretty rough for Jhalm shortly.

    And to whoever it was that was discussing ‘even chances’: magic swords or no, the Veiled don’t seem too difficult to sneak up on, judging by that comic I-can’t-remember-how-far-back.

  39. BunnyRock says:

    @ Argent ” Whose side are the crawdads on?”

    Well, given the trousers the veiled wear one would imagine he dresses to the right….

    Oh I’m sorry you said “whose”.

    Has he considered Turpentine? And, on a related note, what the hell are crawdads when the are at home? Or when they are at home in peoples trousers?

  40. Tindi says:

    BunnyRock, crawdads are what Americans (mostly of the southern persuasion, I believe) call crayfish: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crayfish
    Kind of a shrimpy lobstery swimmy thing that lives in rivers.

  41. jaynee says:

    Ah – that would be a “yabbie” to Digger, then. Thanks, Tindi.
