Heartaches 16: Obnoxious Audiophiles

it’s my first time reading through, and I really really like your character designs!

So that is the half-manticore?
… What is the other half? Lion? Manticores were yet another creature supposed to have a human face. Stands to reason his other half couldn’t be human or the like, could it?

After reading Kill them with Kindness it’s kinda scary to imagine that he had to shed his paws in order to get human hands, just for dexterity.

… I realized that this is major spoilers. I don’t mind if this is removed — in fact, I want it to be — and I’ll move the comment/discussion to the reddit. =]

He doesn’t shed everything. Just the outer layers. Fur, teeth, hooves, claws, maybe some skin, that sort of thing.

I like how his teeth are actually sinking into the screwdriver handle even though he’s just holding it. I guess manticores really can eat anything.

    This was my collection of medallions, until very recently… I noticed my keychain felt lighter than usual, and sure enough the fob that I kept them all on was gone. No luck finding it so far. I’m looking in your store and not seeing most of these, is there any way to replace them? Maybe even a secondary market, if you know of one?

    Oh no, that stinks, I’m sorry! I hope you can find them back!

    Unfortunately the all-copper medallions are out of print and I probably won’t remake them like that anymore. If they do get remade they’ll have color on them, like the others. Same story with the nixie medallion. I need to do inventory on the white stags to see if I have any left, but I will probably be reordering those because they are popular. And bugbears are always in stock at my store! Send me a message on Patreon and I can sell you a bandersnatch medallion for cheap, even though those aren’t in the store.
