Not like Coal, apparently.
The first page of the new year! You might notice it’s a bit bigger than previous pages. Since there will be more dialogue in future pages I decided to increase the size a bit so the text is still legible. They may get bigger still, but we’ll wait and see.
Anyway, I hope you guys had a great holiday! For TWC this week you get sketches of ideas for Loki’s house. I still need to finagle the layout. It’s not 100% historically accurate, but pretty close. Loki actually lives in a fairly small house, though it’s big enough for his family. Vikings of old lived in longhouses with a central hearth right in the middle of the building. There were low benches along each wall where people sat and slept. Loki’s family is pretty lucky because they have their own bedrooms with actual beds. To have a bed at all was definitely a status symbol. Even though Loki’s hall isn’t as big as Odin’s hall (or even Coal’s old hall), all his possessions are top of the line.
Edit because Sarah’s a doof: “Einherji” is the singular form of “Einherjar,” the warriors of Valhalla that belong to Odin. At least I think it’s the singular form, I’ve only seen it this way once, and it may have been in a very old, possibly out-of-date book. If any Norse-lovers know better, please let me know!
Thanks you guys! See you next week! :D
