Enter Korsova, the human empire’s “Jewel of the North”! I wouldn’t exactly call it a choice vacation destination spot. Maybe more like Flea Bottom meets The Purge in the shadow of a sorcerous terrorist hellbent on revenge against human beings.

So, still a party!

    Hah, you got me with that one… I suspected Vanion all the way, not a festival. I will say, I did react to their “masks” from the previous page, but though this was part of some illusion.

      I’m glad the little twist worked for you. I really wanted to make our first real look at Korsova show just how influential the fear of Vanion is to the humans living there. To them, he’s half boogie-man, half elvish terrorist living up in the mountains.

        He absolutely becomes more influential with each issue of the comics. From the first issue, I perceived him more as a form av “presence” in the world, maybe even more myth-like. But this whole thing puts his role in a very different light.

    Ah! I finally caught up and circled back around to say that this festival has me fascinated and horrified. You’ve built a dark little world and the characters all seem very at home in it…but it’s still disquieting.

      Thanks, Adam! Disquiet is good. The Festival’s just a set piece, but it’s one that I’m fond of. I could imagine using it for a D&D session or the like very easily.

      Otherwise … I like to think that we live in a dark little world ourselves, and we’ve just normalized the most horrifying and mundane parts of it to the point of being numb. If anything, the world’s so dark that we don’t have any other choice if we’d like to cope; that’s how I imagine it is for both the humans and the elves of Alvaheim.
