Goblin etiquette explained, and a surprise
Panel 1.
At the Goblin party. Throbmeat talks to Neive, Krikkit and Andy. At the top of each panel, the goblin Yawzha is talking.
Yawzha: So on goblin etiquette: we respect the helmet and sacred utensils. Get your hands on some at once.
Throbmeat: And look at you! All restored to your former status.
Neive: Yeah. Bargecock gave us a tonne of shit, but it was worth it.

Panel 2.
Throbmeat beckons one of the bartenders for beer while Neive picks up his penis to put it in her lap.
Yawzha: Once you’re in, touch people! Anywhere but especially on our fun parts. Goblin soldiers can’t use them for actual sex, so they use them to bond.
Throbmeat: Three beers for my friends!
Neive: Lemme help you keep that off the floor.

Panel 3.
A bartender uses his prehensile penis to deliver beer to the group, while everyone talks.
Yawzha: And don’t forget to let them touch you! they will respect it if you don’t, but they’ll notice something’s not right. goblin friends touch and fondle each other all the time.
Neive: Thanks, that’s sweet of you when you’ve only just met us and we weren’t exactly at our best!
Throbmeat: Hey, I just had a good feeling about you, you know?

Panel 4.
Yawzha: I can’t stress this enough: goblins are a danger to other species but safe to their goblin kin!
Throbmeat: Hey, can I talk to you somewhere private?

Panel 5.
Yawzha: In fact, once you’ve won a goblin’s trust, they will take you into their confidence quickly.
Throbmeat: Thank you for agreeing with me on this.
Neive: Not a problem!

Panel 6.
Yawzha: I think that’s all you need... Oh, just one more thing...
Throbmeat: Yeah, this should be private enough.
Neive: So what do you want to tell me?

Panel 7.
Throbmeat unexpectedly pushes Neive to the wall of the tent and pins her down.
Yawzha: Goblins are very observant.
Throbmeat: I know what you are.
Neive: Eep!

The Spun Off Artist
Woo! First update in two and a half years! The reason this is finally getting done is that last week was Goblin Week, so I started drawing goblins for a bit. Then I looked at my comic that had goblins in it and realized that the talking heads on top of each panel had been taken from art done during last year's Goblin week. So I thought "this is ridiculous, I'm just going to finish this page."
The creation process for this page was dragged out for over two years while I was working on other comics, especially Greyfriar's Isle. When that happens, it doesn't benefit the resulting art; spending a lot of time on a page can be good, but dragging the process out causes continuity errors and other errors resulting from forgetting half of what you were doing. So I try to avoid it. But this page was going to take a long time regardless, because it has so many moving parts. Hopefully the next one will be simpler.

Speaking of forgetting things: the goblin explaining goblin etiquette is called Yawzha and last appeared in the comic in 2018 and first debuted back on January 1, 2013. 10 years ago! Of course, in comic time, it's the second day of the story.

Damn! Talk about prehensile peckers that function similarly to elephant trunks & looks like the jig is up for her
