Making people doing Highland activities is actually a pretty fun thing for this art style.

Rain’s basis is definitely loving her drunken escapades in that last frame.

Now, I’m departing from the traditional D&D rules with the whole “Access Spell Matrix” shtick. It’s basically a way of making a slightly modified spell really quickly, at the cost of having it only last a few rounds. It probably won’t be showing up much if at all after this comic.

What is Igon seeing? Well that’s another question for the forums.

Ah, a new location, a new cast, and a totally new way to add comedy!

Yes, with Arcania presently behind us, and no new disasters looming on the horizon, I’m going to try and put more comedy in. Hopefully this is a good start.

On this strip, my favourite parts are the Guarding Soldier, and the panoramic from Bedelia (Oscar’s mother) to the entrance.

The friend I based Rain’s design on massively enjoys the “Motherly Squee” frame. I really can’t say I blame her.

Ah yes, ye olde monster in a boxe. Obviously I’m not giving any spoilers on what precisely is in there for a good while however.

Astute readers will recognise the three soldiers at the bottom there, they may become a running joke.

And now I’d like to direct your attention to the Goods button below, wonderfully adorned by our very own marketing devil, Kilzu. Because I seriously need the cash.

It’s always interesting when someone fails a caster level check.

“Oh no! The Ogre is only lightly singed!”


“Oh no! The demon is unleashed”

And in this case, “Oh no! I can’t see my own kitchen!”

Given his recent trials, Igon has probably every right to be worried about what the Empire has done to Arcania. If someone was secretly violating Brittania behind my back, I’d want to know about it.

Oscar on the other hand is probably just excited to want to get home, since he hasn’t seen his family in decades.

And no, I have no idea why the page won’t fit the comic. I’m no Dreamweaver expert afterall.

Oh Nemes, when will you ever get a break.

Okay, so now we know that the Empire is breaking at least one part of the Geneva Convention: Don’t experiment on prisoners of war.

I’m not sure if by depicting it in graphic form I am actually breaking the law though…

Speculate as you wish on who the prisoner is in the last frame.

Ah, fanservice for the female readers. Always good.

So if there are any people still thinking Lex isn’t an absolute turncoat, I imagine you should keep quiet about now.

I don’t think I can name many people that would stand still for someone they don’t follow willingly as they shot Disintegrate rays around their feet.

Phew. That monument took an unbelievably long time to actually draw.

I figured I’d slip in the semi-humourous little box frames of our protagonists to put a slightly lighter spin on things, but I think it just made it all more poignant.

The inscription on the memorial is, I must say, one of the most melancholy and well-done pieces I’ve probably ever written.

Farewell Steph.

Writing Sildyu is very interesting, I get to look deep into my most sadistic side and then add humour, what could be more fun? Biggrin

Now, of course, you’ve seen this guy in blue before, and I’m still saying nothing about him.
