Eyyy, happy not-2017-anymore everyone! I'm back at my den again, and so is Wurr. Technically this was the last page finished in 2017, about two weeks ago, but I unfortunately didn't manage to finish before I left for my two week holiday at my parents' place. Sorry for the extra wait!
And Iralbe is back too! For realsies this time! (Imagine how awkward this page would have been if I hadn't caught that bloop two pages ago. Ha.) Also Surama is stubborn and water is wet, news at eleven.
(Fun little extra fact on that last panel: Copper smithing by-products include arsenic and heavy metals, which can cause deformities (which is why so many ancient smithing/fire gods are sometimes deformed, like Hephaestus) and are a big risk for fetal development. The dogs, having more animistic world view, believe that fire is/has spirits in it, and a forge fire is even more spirit-y thing considering the whole transforming and creating aspect of making and molding metal. But they can also be very temperamental -like spirits tend to be, and fire specially-, so a forge spirit gone rogue could get stuck in a forming puppy that doesn't yet have its own spirit and twist them causing deformities.)
