For example, I’m fascinated by the mysterious goblin, elf, orc, and dwarf with the white and yellow masks. They seem to have some connection to the Demon Swords, but I’m left wondering what. I have so many questions. Is there a masked Human, Halfling, or Lionman? What is their purpose? Is it hard to eat with the mask on?
So I’m curious. What characters do you want to see developed?

There was a lizardman in comic CCCXXVII. I’m always an advocate for lizardfolk, and these ones seem to understand Japanese :thinking:

I’d like to see the paladin kingdom that the King of Drakness needs all the exotic, edgy swords for war against. Maybe Sickle can look for a new job there to first introduce them.

I’m never sad to see more Sharp Sharply! :sharpyes:

He’s got that mysterious backstory with Chad’s Dad.

The Mysterious Goblin is also known as the Travel Goblin, who first appears in Swords IV.
The Mysterious Dwarf appears in Swords CCXXXVIII (where he attempts to replace the two-eyed Demon Sword)
The Mysterious Elf first appears in Swords CCVI (he/she pulls the four-eyed Demon Sword out of The Whitesmith)
The Mysterious Troll appears in Swords CCXCIX (who greets the Stroller after he shipwrecks on Demon Island, which seems to be the home of the five-eyed Demon Sword, who is possessing some sort of Minotaur-like creature (see Swords CLVI))
Hope this helped @EndyStar!

I had never realised thise were masks! I always thought they were just a stylistic choice of creature that had part of their skull sticking out! Clearly I havent been paying close enough attention. It’s interesting though, there are misinterpretations of how many eyes Karhob has, but these masks show that they have a pretty good idea of what Baltad looks like.

Oh, sorry. I suspect that they are masks, but they could very well be augmented skulls or something else entirely. I don’t think it’s been confirmed what they are.

Just something I noticed about the Kargob-eyes thing. Has anyone noticed that the skulls on Kris the Necromancer’s shoulders only have six eyes (see Swords CXLIV), while the popular belief throughout the rest of Hiltshire is that Kargob has eight eyes (see Swords L)?

I mean, the 6 eyes vs 8 eyes has been a debate since the beginning of time. Swords L just shows that it’s a very debatable topic. I suspect everyone has their own belief of it.

I kinda wanna see more of some characters that have only really appeared once, like the Squid Cultist, Guss, and The Cave Litch!

I’m surprised Xiphos hasn’t said anything about that yet, having been at the head of a war over the subject. :sadxiphos:

But what I really want to hear more about is shields! They have no blade on them anywhere. Which heretic invented them? Was it Greg? Is that why no one talks about him?

I’m sorry user @Not_An_Eavesdropper but I’m going to have to report you. This is a Swords forum, shields have nothing to do with it, unless the sheild is made of swords or the sword is made of sheilds.

Edit: Do note I am not actually going to report you, that would be unreasonable.

Out of all of the demon swords, I think that the Sword of Absolute Fury could have some more love than its vain three-eyed brother!

I would love to see more of the squid cultists or about Argok, the God of Wind.

That’s interesting. Argok’s Edge was the first sword consumed by the Demon King. Is he/she inside the Demon King with Kargob, Bograk, and Xiphos?
