1) Sorry about panel 4. I'm still working on making good background art but sometimes things like that happen.
2) Peonio did leave saying that fat fairies could easily be sacrificed to bribe the trolls into staying. It was as evil an idea then than now!
3) For a fairy, that's pretty fat. For a human these would have a rather acceptable body, but humans don't have to use their own muscle power to fly.
4) A tannin pit is a rather simple but effectie method for tanning leather. Bark is left to rot in a hole to release tannin for the skins to soak in. They can have furs ready for winter with that method.
Aww they look so upset. :<
I don't think this whole sacrifice idea is going to work the way Peonio is thinking.
True! He had evidence twice that the trolls didn't think like his own people (at the very least culturally) but he never accepted it might be important. Now he might be doing something stupid...
