I think he's using the highly controversial "Whores-Hunting" :D Go to Comment

By the way, using the name "Whore-Hunter" for a stave's name (as well as /the/ Whore-Hunter!) is well, wow, I'm blown away!

Horse head- you just made Francis Ford Coppola wince.

Vivid piece! Nice Wulf! Go to Comment

This is an incredibly vivid piece for me. Quite powerful. Salem witchtrials meets Inquisition, meets Something Wicked This Way Comes, meets Judge Holden of Blood Meridien, meets Kane, meets Evil Reverend, meets sinister rural justice and superstition. Gorgeous. Go to Comment

Wow. An excellent, if disturbing, submission. Reminds me in passing of Kane the Puritan, but no where near as much honor.

Nicely done! Go to Comment

The villian's name is Modest. "Goodman" is an honorific suitable for a yeoman landowner, chosen for its ironic significance. Go to Comment

Murometz is right, drums and orc go together like peanut butter and jelly. This is an nice interpretation and explanation of this aspect of Orc culture. Insert a little tribal politicing and it might explain why a tribe will do "unexplicable" things (as viewed by the humans) jsut before/ during/ after a battle. Go to Comment

I'm a sucker for drums of war. The opening sequence had me dead on, from there I read it right trough. Great submission. Go to Comment

What do I think? Whats not to like, really. Drums and Orcs go together like hotdogs and donuts. Loved the hurdy gurdy description. I had to stop reading and visualize said instrument and the orcs playing it!

the opening monologue is great. I see the punchline coming, but its still a pleasant jolt.

There is a manfred scroll out there somewhere on "spirits" and all that they entail. I believe this sub might be a welcome attachment. I shall seek it out. There is also a musical instrument scroll, where these will fit quite nicely.

I am happy to inspire you with my faulty Norwegian. Orken Drommer indeed!! Go to Comment

ahhh...you've never been to Tajikistan then.

There exists an awful noise, such that drowns out screaming children. Fill thine ears with wax when thee cometh upon it..

Thank you for the response.

The "Thunder Caller" was inspired by a recording of Tibetan "Throat Singers" that I heard once. Few musical experiences are more nauseating. Go to Comment

Updated: I've added some suggested "Orc" articles that may mesh with this and added an "Orcs" freetext. Go to Comment

Wulfhere's comment on 2007-10-30 12:12 PM
The greatest musicians are often found among the tribes' great warriors for two reasons:

First, the instruments require a great deal of strength and endurance to play them properly. The drums must be struck powerfully to give the spirit within the energy to communicate its wisdom; the flywheel of the thunder-caller must be kept turning against the resistance of the strings.

Secondly, the spirits of the instruments are often seen as warlike beings which disdain to be touched by those of unproven mettle. The shamans won't risk angering these mysterious presences by allowing their greatest instruments to be played by unworthy members of the tribe. Go to Comment

I really think that a simple great warrior would be unable to play such an instrument. I believe that part of the orc culture would recognize a true drummer (bard-like) and they would carry on a long tradition, much like that of a witch doctor in other societies. Go to Comment

This has some excellent points though. A nice bit of dramatic hooks, good descriptions, and clear writing.

Undead vulturoid... who would of thought? The vulture god might be an adjunct to The Raven of the Aviontix Gods. The bird gods are an interesting concept. Go to Comment
