– Sorry for the late post. I took a sick day. Hope you all have a nice weekend! If you’re interested in some original art I have a bunch of new stuff for sale on the Modest Medusa store. Please check it out!
Also, I’m super excited t announce the next project for The Magical Land of Yeld RPG. The Kickstarter will launch next month, and you can check out the details here!
Aw, yeah! You go, Jenny!
But does that make her an Oath Breaker?
Oathbreakers seem to be pretty cool in Yeld. Uusually they’re asshats, but this trend in Yeld seems to work out pretty well.
Here’s hoping her friend will follow her, but sadly by the look on her face she’s been turned against her friend.
So, she can promote cardiovascular & digestive health?
No, wait, I’m thinking of an Oat Quaker.
Only the fish deal in absolutes.
It just sounds strange to us humans, but I’m sure, “Damn you to the deep with hooks and nets,” is a pretty big insult to mermaids.
It would probably be the equivalent something along the lines of ‘the pits of Hell with torture and imprisonment.’
It doesn’t, it’s clearly a fishing joke relevant to us humans.
adjective Scot. and North England.
(of a cow) not giving milk, from being in calf or from age.
Was this intentional?
Nope. I have zero memory of where the name came from, but I like short names that start with Y, so it probably popped into my head randomly.
“We’re fine the way we were made” says the one who left the cold wet nothing. I always love how villainous characters are always hypocrites.
Super hypocrites. She’s being extremely disingenuous here.
So much for mermaids being pure and honest.
nah, a SUPER hypocrite has the amazing skill to contradict themselves within the same sentence.
So she knew about the prince’s plan. Hey Jake, I haven’t played the game but why are mermaid hunters a thing? Are mermaids generally considered evil in this world? Of course that’s probably obvious, but maybe there’s more to it than that.
Not really. But Mermaids have a long history as the soldiers of the Deep, and have invaded Yeld several times. So a lot of people in Yeld see them a untrustworthy and hostile. Mermaids also tend to be kind of violent and short tempered, since they were created to be soldiers. But a lot of Mermaids live in Yeld and have for generations, and are part of communities.
The mermaids in Mermaid Hunters are specifically a gang of criminals, and the local town sent out a request for specialists to help deal with them. They’d do the same for a gang of vampires or werewolves.
Nevermind, I just realized that I missed a page, apparently there’s a different princess of Yeld that they might be talking about. Say, about those deeps and darkness, I’d assume that they lived in relative peace until those tentacled beasts invaded their waters (I suspect Prince Dragula himself summoned them so he could use the mermaids) but it almost sounds like something along the lines of “they were part of the coils, a single sentient mass or inky black nothingness but they broke free to live independently.” Obviously needs some explaining. Lastly why do they need the prince’s protection? Are they discriminated against? Maybe people try to kidnap and sell them as exotic slave girls?
The Deep created the Mermaids specifically to fight its wars with the Prince and his Hunters. The coils and tentacles may just be a metaphor for the Deep. The Mermaids who decided to live on land and abandon the Deep are all terrified of it. They live in Yeld with Dragul’s blessing and under his protection, and rely on the Prince and his Hunters to keep the Deep at bay.
As we’ve seen mermaids often seem to be jerks. They’re way more likely to be the ones doing the kidnapping and selling.
New Oathbreaker? I hear Modest is gonna need some kickass fighters to defend her in the future. Where do I apply?
This one made me feel very Yay! And then Oh no! Because who knows what the head mermaid lady will do too her. :/
There’s a town in Washington called Yelm. Perhaps yousulimated the exit signs…
Maybe! It doesn’t look like its too far away.
Something just hit me:
Is Jenny’s name a reference to Jenny Diver?
I wish it was! No, I think Jenny and Deb’s names were suggested by my brother Will. I did a live reading of the first season of MM years ago and Will did the voice of Jenny. I don’t think they had names before that.
