Sword Troubles…

This is episode 33 of The Middle Age. You can read the story from the beginning here.

Melvwyn was very close to speaking fluent narwhal or leopardish. I went with Duckish for all my webfooted readers.

Shop talk: I based the name for the invisible color aorat on the Greek work for invisible: a?ratos. I read a quote of Leonardo DaVinci’s where he suggested that to draw a realistic fantasy creature, you should base the design on real animals. I think the same argument could be made for creating realistic fantasy words by basing them on real words.

Thanks for reading and sharing!
