Comicer's Block So it's Wednesday night and I have no idea what the next page looks like. I'm 'writing' this kind of on the fly off the top of my head. I've got a real comic to work on, and an art trade and lots and lots of books I'd like to be reading.

So I'm skipping this week. I may end up skipping the page I think needs to be here and moving on to the page after if I don't know what this page looks like by about Monday next. This may turn out to be wise narratively as well as practically.

For today you are treated to a picture and a brief thing on how Sokath works.

Sokath is a magical construct (if you haven't picked up on this yet, that's okay, I haven't mentioned it yet). But he's constructed along basically biological lines and functions in much the same way as a living being.

He has to eat occasionally, though due to oddities of his original nature it is a very occasional thing. Usually he has a meal about once a week or as he decides he is interested in food. His body will suck basically anything organic out of the consumed matter, along with any minerals he might be low on and use them to power and repair him. The remaining material is compacted into a little sphere.

Sokath doesn't exactly have guts so when he's done digesting he just hacks whatever he didn't use back out the way it went in. It's less than dignified and he does it in private.

When he's injured, or concerned he might run into a food shortage, he will hunt down, kill and devour whole a large animal of some kind. This sort of gorging results in a bigger pellet and one comprised generously of bone matter.

Generally when in the desert his odd capabilities will allow him to go entirely without food or water, but in the case that he is injured or out in the wastes for a very extended period he can eat sand and glean sustenance from the small amounts of organic material present. The results are little glass balls, basically marbles.
