One Response to “The Swordbearer”

    OK, everything looks to be working again. Won’t last long I am sure. Moving server as soon as the web monkey comes back from holiday. Then everyone will be happy happy!

    Oh AND!

    Tha dragon has rather frog-like legs. Is it actually a dragon at all? Is it, perhaps, a froggan?

    “Wedded to a woman, a legend, and a sword.” Must of been Mormon.

  4. Tat Wood Says:

    Who’s the ‘he’ in that tag-line? The person with the sword is clearly Sheila Hancock so, of the available candidates, the ‘legend’ is likely to be the imposing Siegfried-ish bloke in the armour, so ‘he’ is the Frog-Pterodactyl.

    “True you see mi inna pants and ting!”

    “Look out! There’s … some … Ting! …. BEHIND YOU!”

  7. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Sheila looks smug…are we sure that those are tights, and not (say) ass-less chaps? Note also the, ah, low-lying fog…

    The dragon is supposed to be able to fly with the rider positioned like that? Looks damned uncomfortable if not impossible. Like Gregor Clegane trying to ride a tricycle.

    He was wedded to a woman, a legend, and a sword.

  10. A.R.Yngve Says:

    That dark knight so needs a safety belt.

  11. Tom Noir Says:

    This cover has some ting for everyone!

  12. FeârofMüsic Says:

    And exactly how does one go about carrying around a sword which is longer than one is tall ? And why does the dragon only have two legs? And why.. oh never mind. It’s awful, but it’s a new covver. YAY!!!

  13. NCB Says:

    Mr Tight Crotch’s sword has more ting than Dragon Dude’s.

    Just sayin’. 🙂

  14. B. Chiclitz Says:

    The artist clearly has trouble with feet. Throws in a random clump of grass to cover sword-man’s foot issues, has the dragon standing there on stumps (must be painful, even for the notoriously high-pain threshold of a dragon), and gives the guy riding the dragon just a shapeless blob.

    On the other hand, the artist excels at giant artichokes.

    I used to go to a website years ago that started having near-constant server problems. Finally the owner operator asked for donations to move to a more modern server. He quickly got enough funds via PayPal/money orders etc.that he didn’t need to ask again for about three years.

    I’d certainly like to help out if funding is a problem.

    I’ve rarely if ever posted here, but it’s a site I very much enjoy visiting.

    The woman (guy?) in the foreground looks like she’s having severe constipation issues, and is desperately looking for a convenient bush.

    Sometimes I wonder when they put a tagline “author of…” on a book if it actually attracts readers or not. But then I remembered that I know some people who are so slavishly devoted to The Black Company books, that in this case, it probably did.
