MERSTORY - updated weekly | only on newtribez.net


 

 




So this their Legacy, huh?


 


Okay. So it's a box.


A metal box. 


I guess without fingers, they'd have a hard time


trying to use a key to open a lock.


 


 


Though they could try to use their teeth maybe?


 


I bring out the box from inside their sacred tent


and out into the sun.


Only to get tackled by an excited harpy girl.


 


("You strong! I like you!"9 she chirps out.


("What's in the box! Tell me! Show me!")


 


Squish.


 


Abruptly I am reminded that I had to invent *bras*


in this strange new world.


 


The HARPY PRINCE grabs her head 


with his batlike hooked finger-claws 


and pulls her up; 


harpies have great arm strength and strong necks.


 


 


She goes limp and docile like a kitten


and no less mischievous.


 


("I am sorry for my sister,") says the HARPY PRINCE


("You hold legacy, so you friend now to harpy tribe.


("Family,


("Your enemies our enemies.


("Your pain our pain,


("Your blood our blood.


 


("Ask and we help, we fight and kill children of sea.")


 


 


Thank you. That's all I really wanted. 


Air power is such a cheat.


 


He smirks at me again.


 


 


("Two-legs rule this land. We give to you,


("I rule sky, you rule land. But only this land.


("We have more.")


 


 


Fiiine. I don't care about no island-hopping campaign anyway.


 


 


("Great Father have more legacy!") the HARPY PRINCESS adds


("Get more! Open more! Climb mountain, meet shining-bird!")


 


("Later,") the HARPY PRINCE states, his rule now unchallenged.


 


 


("This island holy land, we worship and then we leave,


("We stay a while for you. 


("We fight, then we go temple.")


 


 


If that's what it will take, 


then I'm fine with doing that later too.


I just hope it's not a temple with traps 


that will need me to tomb raider through.

[/Array]Update Notes:[/Array]


After a hiatus, MerStory is back at a week update schedule. On Mondays, but at least now there's three images per post instead of just one; much more like a comic strip.


Also, MerStory has been accepted and is now listed at [/Array][/Array]The Webfiction Guide[/Array][/Array]! Please let us know what you think.

I'm doing a thing. Another weird thing.



Click on the image above or here to see how it goes. 


Old Plugs:



So, I made a NTZ Exclusive Game Review of This War of Mine, a very socially-relevant indie game that lets you play it from the POV of those who really suffer most in war: the civilians.


Please check it out [/Array][/Array]here[/Array][/Array].
