*************   

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.)

That's an awesome bit of smithing history and lore! (and here I thought the dogs just had their own version of pah-wraiths... :D)

Deformities on pup that are all ready half mutant xD I'm sure that would cause a lot of noticeable damage

I absolutely love the amount of world-building and thought you put into not just Wurr, but every project I've seen you creating! <3 (Loved reading your explanation of the fire-spirits!)

Excellent expressions and interactions among the characters as always, and the blending of the fun fact regarding smithing by-products with the fire spirits is perfect!  Stay safe Niavel!

Good call. Considering who the father is, you wouldn't want a deforming spirit adding fuel to that fire.

Fire spirits. It's actually kind of adorable how they think it happens vs how it really happens.

Yay another page :D. Happy New year to you, too!
I love how BakBak nods in the last panel - nice detail about the fire spirits. I didn't know that it could led to deformitoes.
I guess the hounds never thought about that, as their pups have mutations anyway.

I really like how you add culture elements like that to the comic; the way you do it is just super natural and feels like it fits.

Hope you had good hollidays ^^ I'm very happy to see Wurr again!
I really like the idea of fire spirit, with the related deformities and superstition things, it fit the background very well ^^

The stuff about the copper smithing is pretty interesting to know, and it's cool that you incorporated it into your world-building! It figures that the hounds wouldn't have noticed the connection when all of their pups are born mutated anyway. (Of course, it might be too late for Niavel's pups, being half hound themselves, but why risk making things worse?) I find the last panel weirdly amusing, with Morri's nonplussed look and Bakbak's solemn nodding.

Oh, that's clever building of their beliefs. I wonder if they also think spirits have to do with why the hounds look the way they do?
