Dun dun duuuun! That'll be the surprise then you mentioned! Why do folk in that family not stay dead? :D

Nicely done, I would suggest breaking the flow of pics up just a little so the order in which to read is as clear as can be, but other than that, great stuff!

Yeah, joining the slides is a complete nightmare, still haven't figured out how to put everything together without it resizing and going boom. I added 1-column versions of the two latest, both the order and some fonts should be clearer now :D

Very good! :D Loving these comics. Devilish Dara!

One thing though. Night elves bleed purple, not red :3

Where do you take that from? I've seen several different sources saying different things, and I'd really like to know (was going nuts writing an event where nelf blood was involved, and instead head to use the non-descpritive "blood" :D )

I have heard those arguments from fans but I find them hardly convincing or even worth consideration. ...like analyzing the scar tissue color of night elf characters...

I have seen official artwork with red blood, so for me it's red. Unless you have a quote of Bliz/lore themselves stating its purple, Thon? You got me curious.



Also, nice work as usual on those comics Dara. I just keep wondering everytime how you manage to make those :)

The blood of the night elf units in WC3 is shown as purple, and Illidan's blood is shown as purple in cutscenes. Here is words from a GM on the colour!

That's the argument I've seen as well for pro-purple. The things going against it is that the blood is red in World of Warcraft, and that there seems to be no other description of what colour the blood is (even the books seem to shy away from saying what colour the blood is), so I feel like we need Blizz to come out and give us the what's-what on kaldorei blood.

Blizz will never do that, because Blizz is lazy. All player blood is red in gamegraphics, even when quests say a race have different colour. Like the blue of Draenei, green of Forsaken and dark dark red of the orcs.

I personally RP it as purple.

:lol: I know, but one can hope that Blizz one day irons out some of the lore things...

And a new one be out.


Concerning the blood; to each his own imo. I'm personally sticking to red blood for all races - except Forsaken. :D
