Webcomic description

For centuries the people of Aydon have lived in peace thanks to a world order established by kings, warlords, and priests--all backed up by the might of the sword. But now a new weapon more powerful than the sword has appeared, and it will shake the world to its very foundations. Who will live and who will die, when thunder comes from a cloudless sky? *Warning: this story contains high levels of violence and blood. It also has frontal nudity and sexual situations.*


I'm D.H. Wood, a storyteller using 3dmodeling, digital imagining, and the comic form to tell stories. My stories explore themes often dealing with the dynamics of human nature, society, and my perspectives on them. Most of my stories fall under the genre of soft science fiction and fantasy. My stories can also contain high levels of violence and nudity, so they may not be suitable for younger or more sensitive readers. Viewer discretion is advised.

My family came out to visit and stay with me for the holiday, so I haven't had a chance to update the comic or work on making new assets for a few days. But, now they're gone and it's back to work.

I hope all my fellow American artists had a nice holiday weekend as well. This was a particularly challenging holiday this year, but I hope everyone got a chance to pay their respects in their own ways.

Friends asked me if I based Narabell's mother on real-life female leaders. Some thought maybe Cathrine the Great of Russia, or Elizabeth I of England. But actually, Rockna is based on Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States. Rockna will have her own story eventually, and you will see what I mean.

I love the specks of gold dust you added to the cave entrance. That is a really nice touch!
That's a good concept, but my dwarves worship their ancestors. They believe the dead have divine powers and constantly seek their guidance and counsel. They talk to them through special dwarf women spiritualist. It's one of the few fantastic elements in the whole story. They would want to have a splendid room for their dead.

This was just a case of me having too much to do at the time I made the comic and just kind of threw it away. lol
that, or Dwarves hold the living rock to be more powerful than any paint or gilding and other than carvings that can still wear away, they prefer the silent stone ?
