I have moved the character portraits and bios from the xmas 2013 advent calendar here.
Credits: I wish to extend my most sincere thanks to the North Korean official press agency, on whose website I found the prose samples read by Borin in this episode. Aside from the mention of dwarves, they are taken verbatim from the excellent bulletins of the Korea News Service.
I also wish to express my deep gratitude to Euro nerd techno supremo Basshunter, for providing inspiration for the last panel of this strip with his video Dota. I feel you, man.
