And here is Heartleaf. I have mentioned the city quite a bit in this tale and now we arrive. A quiet little town and a place to call home.


The dude with the stash… who is he? Well if you read back through the comic, you will get an idea of who he is and what is his role among the goblins. Yet I haven’t named him, yet. There wasn’t a need, yet there are a lot of people interested in him so lets have a little fun.  I’ll let readers figure out a name. Throw out a few ideas of a for our cloaked human. Give me a good reason as well… I think it will fun to see what people come up with… Oh and bob is already taken.

on the note of what to name Mr. Mustache, i say "Gorm" – say that to yourself deep in your chest with a British accent, and it'd be about right. or at least a name starting with "G" – he looks like he'd have such a name.

The town is lovely, reminds me of a little one in Oregon I used to visit.

As for a name, you need something civilized but sinister for this "gent", I would venture Maluk. I believe it means King or ruler in Aramaic.

I’m hoping the phrase ‘don’t a judge a book/town by it’s cover/appearance’ is going to apply painfully for Heston here. 😛

And yes, I’m calling him Heston, because he looks gruff/cynical but with an air of old-fashioned (albeit, still corrupted) principles about him.

BigNose — I like the idea of using a "Viking" name, but I would suggest Yngvi. I suggest it in part because it just sounds mean, and in part because of a reference to classic science-fiction/fantasy. "Yngvi is a louse."

I say call him Gyorg–but don't ask me why!

What a beautifully balanced townscape…I love your black and white art. The colored panels were great while they lasted, but I like that your lines are always sharp and the effect is never muddy. Regarding the Nameless Mustache Man, I suggest "Ivar", or perhaps "Thorvald". Both of those are names of Viking chieftains who history shows us could be pretty ruthless. And the "V's" match the names of some of your other humans.

    i am so glad mercy- i really enjoy your comments and I like Both names suggested…:) I think it is time for a big big map:)

I doubt that it is unaware. We saw Fencer outpacing the Goblins (If you check the panels just past you can see him pulling ahead. I'm also pretty sure that Siv will have made it as well.

I do wonder who "Big Nose" is. I'll have to go back and check the archives…

    🙂 Though if i remember right Siv went another direction other than heartleaf.

    As for the "big nose" with the stash… I have opened up to suggestion on a name:)

      Ah… I thought the Inn was in Heartleaf. My error.

        Trav the bean » 28 Jun 2011 » Reply

        no worries- the inn actually is about a day and half out of heartleaf by wagon

Oh, this does not look good.

Gorgeous! I love little towns like that (of course, I’m used to the modern kind, which are usually a little bigger).
