This page, surprisingly enough, Killed my hand...

What we have this month for donators is:
- Anthro Dragon Drogan and Serid (M/M) for the donation pic.
- Kinar Magnet for Patreon 15 dollar tier.

Speaking of Patreon!
I would like to guys to check out The Webcomic Relief on Patreon. Its an awesome series of video's that review webcomics. It doesnt just sit there and bash them, there is honestly some really good advice on how to improve, or what could have been done differently. I suggest checking it out, its very entertaining. And if you can, support the creator as well. ^.^

I know she's married, but those two look like a cute couple. I take it that's just some of the victims she had as a DK that's come back to haunt her?
Dreamfox 13th Feb 2017, 1:30 AM edit delete reply
Or a message from upstairs. Something like: "I wellcome you back my Paladin, but you still have a lot to make up for. Just a reminder."
Guest 13th Feb 2017, 12:18 AM edit delete reply
Oh now this is interesting. Is she getting memories from him I wonder? From the blood they now share?
Amocin 13th Feb 2017, 12:28 AM edit delete reply
The blood would not give her shared memories, and if it had been, there would be a lot more alliance up there.
Rembrant 13th Feb 2017, 12:24 AM edit delete reply
It's understandable why this would fall into hand hell territory, tons of details. Also, that first panel is adorable. This may also be the kind of thing Shai would not appreciate witnessing if he were to walk in. XD

Well guess I was wrong about a sex scene lol but still never thought amo got nightmares
Shade 13th Feb 2017, 6:53 AM edit delete reply
I imagine as a DK she didn't sleep. So now that she's alive again her subconscious can manifest memories into nightmares as she sleeps.

I spy a LOT of hoard targets,maybe even as a death knight she slayed the hoard without mercy. lol seems she got a few kills under her belt.

Did she just realise the atrocities she committed as a DK
Scottishlass 13th Feb 2017, 3:12 AM edit delete reply
Do I spy Mordin at the top of all they orcs? Maybe a premonition of sorts? All I know for sure is that first panel is adorable.

Ooooh. Mysterious death knight at the top, wonder who it could be?

I see many horde races there, but if I'm not mistaken a few Alliance races too. Spectres of long dead foes perhaps? Either that or she has one wild imagination to form a nightmare like that.
Amocin 13th Feb 2017, 8:17 AM edit delete reply
The DK at the top is Amo, check the hair style.
Kitten 14th Feb 2017, 12:27 AM edit delete reply
Sorry Amo, could you clarify-- when you say the DK at the top, do you mean the top as in the first panel or the top of the second panel?

If that's Amo in the second panel and her army... that could be incredibly significant for the storyline.
Amocin 14th Feb 2017, 1:18 AM edit delete reply
There is only one person in this image that looks like a DK, with the glowing blue eyes. The rest of the faces are the people she has killed, while a DK.
TSL 14th Feb 2017, 5:43 PM edit delete reply
A powerful page.

I've read/heard accounts of soldiers seeing the faces of those they killed.

To quote a VA mental health services chief:
"I had one World War II veteran I remember -- to the day he died he could still describe the face of the man he was about to kill. He was that close, that personal, that he felt like he could read the man's entire life just in his eyes, and he was in a situation where he had no choice but to kill him. I hear this frequently."

To quote a friend of mine who was a former Marine:
"When I killed that man, a piece of me went with him, and if there is an afterlife, I know that wherever my spirit goes, I will have to answer for what I did."

I was in the US Army Infantry at a time when the Vietnam era veterans were retiring in mass, and I remember some recalled their horrific personal accounts. In the words of one SFC/E7: "Women and children died by my hands; I will never purge myself of that guilt."

It seems Amo is starting to reflect on her past.

If you look a little bit closer, you can see it is herself. I think thats all the faces she killed as a DK.
Kitten 14th Feb 2017, 12:31 AM edit delete reply
It has be wondering whether that's Amo and maybe her army.. coming into Gilneas? That is just speculation though.
Guest 13th Feb 2017, 5:38 AM edit delete reply
Mmmm I wonder why the Death Knight though at the top

Is it fine to just be a patreon for one month?

Love the comic and am glad I can throw a little money your way, even if it is only once.
Shade 13th Feb 2017, 7:01 AM edit delete reply
Would it be a far shot to say that his blood, because he is a red dragon a.k.a. A representative of life, Would be causing her to have slightly more vivid nightmares about her kills than normal?
dawndemonica 13th Feb 2017, 11:13 AM edit delete reply
I believe it's more the fact that she is now alive, has to sleep, and is back to being a paladin, that she is seeing the faces she has killed over the years in her nightmares. As a Death Knight she didn't need to sleep so the killing never caught up with her. Now that she is alive and needs her sleep to keep her energy up, her previous kills since becoming a Death Knight have started to show up in her dreams turning them into nightmares.

Hopefully, she will balance the killing with healing allies as a Paladin to soften the nightmares over time.
Kitten 13th Feb 2017, 11:38 AM edit delete reply
Looks like Amo is having a nightmare about the invasion of the Horde into Gilneas.

She seems so tough and bad-ass, but there's still trauma behind that tough exterior. Kind of similar to those who may struggle with PTSD in our society.

Drogan looks so tired. He's cute though, just resting and reading in bed. :3
Guest 13th Feb 2017, 2:15 PM edit delete reply
I thought that now she sees all of the enemies she killed

To fuck again. Seriously. We haven't had a fluid exchange scene since Fall. Of Twenty Fifteen.

Aetheos 13th Feb 2017, 8:33 PM edit delete reply
Sex without exposition or pauses between scenes is boring. When we get it again it will be worth the wait i am sure.
It's better than a comic where two furries come up to each other and the guy says "U want sum fuk?" and then sex, cheesy dialogue...like swiss cheesy, possible preggo, twist ending. End comic.
The comic is mature audiences, so lets be mature and wait c: The story doesn't go anywhere if people have to stop to have sex every 5-10 pages.
Guest 13th Feb 2017, 4:28 PM edit delete reply
Do I sense cofort sex between Amo and Drogan?
Guest 19th Feb 2017, 3:40 PM edit delete reply
No way. The last time she slept with him was out of desperation to be alive again. It was incredibly destructive for her marriage with Shai, and considering it only happened a couple days ago, they haven't even truly had time to work through the damage it brought on their relationship. Plus, Drogon knows she's married now and would never knowingly help someone commit adultery.

>_< It was a major plotline!

Hi Amocin,

What sort of art media do you use to make Druids?
Amocin 13th Feb 2017, 10:59 PM edit delete reply
Hardware: Wacom Intous Pro (med size)
Software: Paint Tool SAI, Photoshop CC 2015
TSL 14th Feb 2017, 4:51 PM edit delete reply
Thanks for the information.

I near the end of what was my enormous stash of old-school art media. When finally exhausted, I will leap into a more digital form of media. I'm now at that stage of speaking with other artists about what they use, and will hopefully soon find a retailer that has some demo models I can try.
Guest 13th Feb 2017, 7:07 PM edit delete reply
The page is great, Amo and Drogan look adorable together. Also, only 10 left to the magical 300 pages barrier. Keeping the comic up and running for so long is such a great achievement.

I wonder what the future holds. While your new universe, Skylords looks really promising and we get more and more informations every month, you also mentioned something about some sort of Druids spinoff. Could we get more details about it? It could help to fill the void that the end of the Druids may leave.

Nevertheless, I like the design of your new characters, they all look colorful and unique. It would be great if there was a crossover donation picture one day, of corse if it is possible. 
Last but not least, could donation picture sample be posted a little bit sooner? I know that you’re busy, but it definitely helps the people with limited funds.
Amocin 13th Feb 2017, 10:58 PM edit delete reply
What I have in mind for any spin off would actually be very short.. The story of Amo and Shai is not terribly interesting, or long for that matter, and I dont think throwing extra stuff to beef up a script would be true to them. It would likely only be about a 20 pager, at max, to show how Amo and Shai met, and got together.

Anything else that could be a 'spin off' would really just be small things that fill the gaps or show things people would like more of an explanation on.

Druids spin-off comics are a 'maybe' though. I dont want to get anybody's hopes up for something that I may not have time to do when it comes down to it.. I will try though, as there seems to be enough people who want it.

Cross over donation pics are not at all out of the question. The donation pics have always been non-canon, so I see no reason there couldnt be a cross over of the characters if thats what the fans would want.

The donation pic sample is posted when I finish the pic itself.. I know I need to get it out sooner, and I do try, but sometimes things dont always work out as planned and the pic isnt even completed until the week before it needs to go out.. So I am not actually holding back on showing it, its just that it isnt done... I release the sample when I have something to release. I am sorry, I will try to be better about getting it out sooner in the future.
Guest 14th Feb 2017, 2:22 PM edit delete reply
It would be great if you could, someday, create a collection of short comics from Druids’ universe. I think there are a lot of interesting topics that could be addressed besides Shai's and Amo’s story, namely:
-The story how Ghath switched sides, explaining things like Mordin’s rise to power and Drogan’s history.
-Serid’s story, his past relationships, life as a half-breed tauren and why he volunteered in Gilneas invasion.
-The story how Kinar obtained Anders’ egg.
-Kinar’s and Serid’s first year of acquaintanceship, in the main comic there was something like only one page about it.
-Life after Gilneas, explaining how Koutack and his family coped with their new bodies and the loss of friends and relatives.
-If you’re willing to do a little fan service, Shai’s only canon gay experience. Your M/M donation pictures are really premium quality, so I’m sure a lot of people would enjoy short M/M comic from you.

Only you know the full plot though, so I expect some of them will be explained in the main comic, still it would be great to know something more about the characters and one-page Ask the Cast format can be a little bit limiting, I think.

Speaking of cross over donation pictures, it would be great to see something featuring water dragon Rayne. You really did a fantastic job designing him, can’t wait to see him in action.

There is absolutely no rush in delivering donation picture sample, just it would be good to know something more about it, like the position, etc., even if it’s just a brief description.

Maybe, because of the fact that you’ve reached your Patreon goal, it would be possible to upload censored and cropped sketch first, and after you finish the picture, just to replace it with the intended version? With that method you could prepare the sketches beforehand and present the sample right after the results of the voting are known.

Awsome work, Amo! It looks so...dark. Reminder that there is not only fun and jokes. Wanted to ask - will Amo lose her paladin powers with time, cause in-game Worgens cannot be Paladins?
Amocin 14th Feb 2017, 2:20 PM edit delete reply
Worgen's in game can not be Paladin's because of game mechanic balancing factors. So the answer is, no.. Game mechanic BS doesnt always apply in comic.
Viverred 14th Feb 2017, 2:54 PM edit delete reply
i thank all the relative deities for that. it makes for a much more interesting story.
Phoenix AJ 14th Feb 2017, 6:21 PM edit delete reply
Possibly unrelated question and perhaps even unimportant... But what kind of book would Drogan read? I just felt suddenly curious ^.^
Amocin 14th Feb 2017, 7:02 PM edit delete reply
'Fantasy' novels. Stories of things that arent even possible in their world. Stories of a world without any magic or dragons or anything.. Things outside of the norm, he likes to indulge in other's imagination.

Okay quick question. Who are these dudes and what do they have to do with Amo? Also judging by the bloody background. I don't think this is a good thing.
Tab 16th Feb 2017, 7:29 AM edit delete reply
Amo has more or less been "reborn". Thanks to the blood of the Red Dragon, she is now able to see and feel her dark past of her Deathknightness(if thats a word, I'm half-awake). She is having a nightmare, and every face that you see is someone, or something that she has killed for either the sport of it, or in cold blood, because Deathknights thrive on that kind of stuff. Her being reborn into Paladin status again, this would cause quite a stir on her new conscious.

Back through the glen I rode again and my hear with grief was sore
For I parted with those valiant men whom I never shall see no more
But to and fro in my dreams I go and I'd kneel and pray for you,
For slavery fled, O glorious dead, When you fell in the foggy dew.
