Auto-update, as I'm on a short vacation trip right now. But I'll be back in just few days, later this week.

I like a lot the fight scene in this page!

The expressions and the depiction of the moments made by the characters are quite stylish :D

That pair who are betting each other a beer on the outcome of the fight... are they the pair who had the "WELCOME KOBOLT" placard at the arrival of Kobolt and her fleet and, prior to that, at the arrival of Jally Sirken and his friends? If so, they've moved, well, somewhere in the world, possibly up or down...

I have read Lord of the Flies and also The Coral Island by RM Ballantyne, which was cited by William Golding as inspiring Lord of the Flies (in a "no WAY could a bunch of boys stay that nice to each other - let me jot down a more plausible scenario" sense). Of course, Golding deliberately avoided including any girls in his scenario, stating that it would have complicated things and probably deprived his book of its Armageddon-type ending. I did wonder how things could have turned out if his scenario had included both sexes, and it seems I was not the only one. In fact, I think someone based a whole television drama series on it: juvenile-only society (adults having been taken by a disease pandemic in this case), rival/warring tribes identified by face painting, terrible acting and dialogue... does anyone remember The Tribe?

Heading back to the original subject, what are the odds that Knut will end up with his head displayed on a stake? Or indeed, that one of the combatants will be pushed onto Kobolt's sword point or Ferros's metal fingers?

well observed! Yes, it's indeed those two, and they show up in a whole lot of other places as well. Eventually, at some point, they will be introduced with names, who they actually are.

On LotF- Yes, I heard that he didn't add girls and also kept all the boys prepubescent for simplification, to keep the story focused on the essential thing, our violent and tribal nature which is still there, beneath our civilized surface.

But what would have happened if there were girls? I fear, in essence, probably not very different, girls tend to be less physically violent on average, but they can still be quite as mean.

Yes, the 'back to the roots' theme is a loved one, what are we like when all the civilization stuff is suddenly gone? I haven't watched 'The Tribe' though, so I cannot form any opinion on that one.

Pushed on the sword or metal fingers.. oh yes that would be a "nice" twist, after all, any dirty trick is allowed. As for Knut.. soon we'll know.

The Lord of the Flies reference, to which you allude, was a double entendre for Piggy (the lovable, plump main character) and the ACTUAL boar, which the boys always knew as a monster. :)

I feel like that is what both of our fans say when reading our stuff, "WE WANT BLOOD!" Always cool to see your emotions and expressions reign through!

...and now also Knut, or Finn o.O

And thanks :D
Do the fans want blood? Maybe. For sure they want suspense, the fear that things could go terribly wrong ;)
