The Gennesine River crosses the main continent of our setting; it is also known as the Black Ribbon, due to its meandering path and its dark waters. These names are also used by our thief, because the river is a massive smuggling thoroughfare; more illegal money goes through the Black Ribbon than anywhere else. Gennesine the thief leaves a piece of black ribbon in places that she has robbed…usually.
The city of Riverwalk is a location unique to Hunter Black…there is no homage here, or harkening to RPGs that we’ve played.
I love Iosephus the Trader. I hope you guys will too.
These last few pages, Will did something I wasn’t expecting, and now I find that I have something new to work with. We had initially decided not to include non-human races in our setting. Then Will designed these guys that Iosephus is talking to. They look way too cool to change for some arbitrarily decided upon rule. So now I have to find a way to use them somewhere down the line. This is what rules about collaboration.
What the hell kind of weapon is that on that dude’s back in Panel One? I can’t wait to see someone swing one of those nasty things.
