A most palpable hit!

... you palpate your hits ?

There is life in the wastes. Seemingly this must be after the DataChasers main story.

The dappled lighting on and from the foliage is well done, as is the shadow from the rim of the depression in the last panel.

Could be. Or could be long before?
Sheela 22nd Jun 2017, 11:34 PM edit delete reply

Different areas, may have been hit less hard.

You both could well be right. I get my impression from seeing the city so close, in ruin, then I see such abundant life returning all around, while in the main story, there are only small pockets of flora seen, some of which must be well-tended in order to thrive. There seems to be a resurgence of fauna; enough to hunt. It gives me the overall impression that the war is long over, and that Nature is finally gaining the upper hand out here. I could well be wrong though.

"It's in the days of our Grandfather's Grandfathers."

I assumed it was after the war and before the re-build. These may be the remains of the cities that were not Troy, Sparta or Rome.

That could be from 150 to 200 years (I don't know what a life span really is). That would be plenty of time for the flora to take over an abandoned city but probably not enough time to completely tear it down.

Actually, after having re-read the first few pages, I see no reason to think this story isn't concurrent with the Data Chasers main story. I believe both tales are taking place about two centuries after the war.

Besides, some species of plant life may even have adapted to the new environment.

Like .. Kudzu !

I can't be sure when this is; it was just the impression I got. In reality, it's probably purposely vague. That leaves a lot of storytelling room, without impinging on the main story. "Our grandfathers' grandfathers" says it's a few generations since the destruction, so it could indeed be concurrent with the main story.

Kudzu, yeah . . . no. While some of those panoramas have an aesthetic appeal, in the US, it's an invasive. Nothing else (native species) can grow, because it takes over. A person needs a brush mower and a flamethrower.

Kudzu: it's already here, it's mega-invasive, that makes it the perfect "take over after everything else is dead" kind of species.

Watch Out! It's a trap! (Or a old foot print)
mjkj 22nd Jun 2017, 10:31 PM edit delete reply

You sure about the old?
Timotheus 23rd Jun 2017, 3:03 AM edit delete reply

The plants on the bottom aren't flattened.
mjkj 22nd Jun 2017, 10:30 PM edit delete reply

Wow, beautiful...

...and that footprint... =O up on DataChasers: The Attack of the Murderturds...

chk 23rd Jun 2017, 7:17 AM edit delete reply

I don't see a foot print. I just see a depression.
Stormwind13 23rd Jun 2017, 7:47 AM edit delete reply

I see a sinkhole. :-D

Honestly I don't know what started the hole, but I can't see it as a footprint! Might have been a wallow before subsidence set in.
DizzasterJuice 23rd Jun 2017, 9:17 AM edit delete reply

Yup, it's a cave/sinkhole...
But it could be a cave full of murderturds!
guest 23rd Jun 2017, 9:35 AM edit delete reply
sink hole / cave.. im a gussin here,, an old park fountain that collapsed ,, cuz roots head toward water, all the rocks lining the hole an big rocks in center - - the fountain stopped pumping , ground eroded , it collapsed , statue wore away..
Ictuan 25th Jun 2017, 7:04 PM edit delete reply
Or the cave/sinkhole could lead to where the Minkie Kits managed to get themselves imprisoned.
chk 23rd Jun 2017, 9:27 AM edit delete reply

Looks like there could be cave entrances at the top-right and bottom-left. Perhaps it was part of a cave, or under ground river, system that collapsed. At any rate, if they are caves, I wonder what's living there.

I should learn to refresh the screen before I comment. Diz already answered.

"But it could be a cave full of murderturds!"

That means either she climbs down there and drama ensues, or she watches helplessly as a murder turd drags her deer away! (or both) :D

Dialogue for last frame.

Well crap!

Nice foliage :-)

How do you model these kinds of things?...
