– I meant to write “hands and arms”. Sigh.
– Nick and I will be at Sakuracon next week running games of Yeld in the tabletop gaming room (room 613). Our schedule is listed below. If you plan on being at the show please come and join us on Friday from 3-8pm room, Saturday from 11-4pm or Saturday 5-10pm!
– The Yeld Bundle of Holding is still available until Sunday evening. this bundle includes digital versions of The Yeld game (and expansions), the first 3 Seasons of Modest Medusa and 5 other games by myself, Nick and Matt Schlotte. plus some extra material. All for about $13! This is amazing deal, and most of the money is split between a great charity and nick, Matt and myself! My part is going to help pay for my new computer!
– Speaking of which, thanks to the generous support of several of my readers I’ll be able to afford a brand new computer! I’m very excited about this, since I’ve been struggling with the same ancient computer since before I started Modest Medusa. Depending on how well the Yeld Bundle of Holding does I may also be able to purchase a new Cintiq (the tool I use for digital art). If I don’t end up with quite enough money this month I’ll be putting what I have aside so I can save to purchase a new cintiq in a month or two. In the meantime, I’m extremely excited to be getting a new computer! Special thanks to Nathanel Cole who put together a computer that I’ve been using for the last week (and probably for the next week or two while I’m waiting for my computer components to arrive and assemble themselves).
Would the Rabbit Sword even work in our world?
But could she use the Rabbit Sword if she went snakey and lost her arms? – could the little snakes hold the sword in their mouth?
These are questions that only fish science can answer.
Hmm true … wait … fish science?? “gnrrrg uses confusion, it’s super effective”
I think she would work wonderfully with Charles. He has all those adventures on boats and underwater.
Question — Yeld has mer-people running around on land. Does it support folks hanging out underwater. Maybe a SCUBA certified hydra isn’t that exciting.
Also, what does the Rabbit Sword do besides be a nice sword with a fun hilt?
I don’t think the Rabbit Sword does anything special.
Yeah, it’s really hard to say what happens in the other world (non-Yeld…is there a name beyond “Earth”?). In Yeld, though, maybe there is magic? It didn’t work out for the Medusa girls’ mom, but maybe it could work for them (or at least Shut Up). If not? Self acceptance is a beautiful thing.
Why does an adventurer need to be hand shaped huh? Snakes can adventure too!
Wait she has legs?? 😛
Auntie has spell books but no hands or snakes. It’s possible that she uses psychokinesis to manipulate the pages, so why not build up her mental muscles and become The Unforgettable Shutup and the Flying Rabbit Sword of Doom!
Now my question is: does magic works in second world? Would she be able to summon copyright infringement lucky bunnies on Earth?
We see Jenny use magic in our world.
This brings round an old fantasy setting question: if Jenny and Modest can use magic in our world, and Marah can learn it in Yeld, why aren’t people using it here?
There may be some people who are. But also it probably doesn’t work well. Jenny noted that her Mermaid Magic ran out really fast. There also a very limited number of entry points to Yeld, so magic (from Yeld at least) is probably pretty rare in our world.
The way Ecksbocks holds her smaller snakes makes me think they they can still use their snakes as “hands”, at least until they wither when the hydra reaches adulthood. Getting used to using mouths as hands is going to take a while, though…
Of course, once she’s fully grown she’ll probably have a bunch of ways to fight and go adventuring without hands, either through magic or just brute force from her larger size.
ECKSBOCKS talked a little about how she could use her snakes kind of like hands, but its limited.
