Eldritch: Lessons 002

Yeah, I know there’s a lot of wonkyness going on here… and the same will probably happen next week if I make it.  But, I didn’t want to miss an update if I could avoid it. 

Anyway… well, there’s not a whole lot going on, save for finding out Todd has a wolf form and no human form.  Now, I know Todd says there are wolves who can become human, but not him.  Unfortunately, he’s not Seamus and doesn’t spell everything out… But, well, when we think of shapeshifters, we usually think of a human becoming an animal or something else. Surely, such a trait would have, like venom, evolved separately multiple times in the eldritch animal kingdom.  And, naturally, there are a plethora of animal shapeshifters in myth (especially in Native American stories and such but I won’t bore you guys with that ramble again)

But, we’re slowly getting the ball rolling.

However, the important thing I really wish to say here is: Happy Holidays, folks.  To those of you who celebrate Christmas, Merry Christmas.  To those who observe the equinox, Happy Solstice.  To those who celebrate it, Happy (C)Hanukkah.  To those of the Pagan persuasion, Blessed Yule.    I hope that those who celebrate Kwanzaa have a fantastic one.  To those whom it concerns, have a great Pancha Ganapati, or perhaps, Night of the Radishes, and to the folks who celebrate any of the many holidays I’ve missed, I wish you the best.  

And of course Happy Life Day, Starlight Celebration, and Hogswatch.


  1. Awesome! You made the update. I love how Todd prances off in the last panel, really shows a different angle of his character. No pun intended.

    As a furry I'm a werewolf much in the same way as Todd, no human form. Which as I understand it only works with werewolves who decide to, let's say summon the stork (in reference to Piers Anthony's Xanth series) on a full moon when the power is in effect. Thus eliminating the human form for the offspring.

    Anyway, great work on the page as usual. I'm sure with the holidays coming in full force next week there won't be an update but that's fine. Enjoy yourself for a few days without having to work.


  2. Pun intended or not, it made me smile regardless. X3

    I don't intend Todd to be a werewolf per se, but rather a fairytale animal (Though Bzou is used to indicate werewolf or demonwolf as well as fairytale wolf) But I get what you mean, cool stuff.

    I need to get sme time to read the Xanth books sometime. My father reads them, but I get so caught up making things and researching that I seem to lose time for novels. I ought to change that.

    Thank you so very much, that's kind of ya to say. I'm giving it my all to get something presentable finished in time for the update, so who knows, I may get lucky.

    Thanks again~

  3. Hmmm, no human form. That puts an interesting spin on things
