Hello! It’s Monday!! Natalie here again with the update description:

The idea for this scene is REALLY old- I think this dates back to when we were actually tabletop gaming, and wanted to try befriending a snake we met in a pit in a dungeon. I remember our friend who played Goro put a lot of points into animal handling or something similar (befriending animals??), which, looking back, is conceptually weird and funny in an animal-people world context. I forget if it worked or not, but Sara made a little comic strip about it and the bit has survived to this day. Making those little strips to reframe a fun gaming interaction as a narrative moment is what made us want to make a bigger story out of these character dynamics!

I think that’s it for now, I’ll see ya on Friday.
