Friday 26 May

Here I am with today's Random Encounter update! Er... don't look at me, I'm as surprised as anyone that I've managed a whole week of updates so far. This is a nice change. Well... to be honest I've fallen a bit behind on other comics, but like... two Random Encounter updates in a week and they aren't late?? That's pretty zany

Anyway, hey! Had enough volumes around DHS and Mylenor lately, time to go afield!!

Thursday 25 May

Here's today's New Game+ update! R.I.P. that big jerk who nobody liked. I think I was going to write something else but I forgot. Zzzz still quite tired, but feeling much less sick so that is faaaaantastic

Oh!! Right. I revamped the Gods page because all the old pages were outrageously full of errors. And typos, so many typos... Remind me if I forget, at some point this year I really ought to add the creation triad (Gaea, Luna, Sola) in there.

Wednesday 24 May

Time for this week's Death's Door update! Tish is your primary concern right now really whether or not you can "kill" something undead?? Priorities, Tish.

PS. if you are undead, never attack the a death priestess that's just asking for trouble

Tuesday 23 May

Here's today's New Game+ update! Alastair: still 2spooky4bug

Monday 22 May

Finally got an on-time, proper Random Encounter update! Just regular weekend mornings. Definitely nothing exciting.

And I've also joined the Wool Wolf comic collective, it's just starting up. That's what that neat logo to the right is!

Sunday 21 May

Aaand time for today's The Breaking update! If Syrras wasn't such a terrible shapeshifter she probably could have finagled some way out of this. But she's a bit scared to get zapped, and possibly a little sleepyhungry.

Saturday 20 May

Time for Dhark's Hero Stories! Been a while, now Puyon's on term break and it's time for comics! And for tiny Mort :3

Friday 19 May

Sorry for the lengthy delay on this one, but here's a half-size Random Encounter update, to go with that other one! I'm still moving pretty slowly, but doing significantly better than I was so heyyy that's all good. Hopefully no more comic delays!! But realistically there may be some since I'm still moving slow. Well! I'll do my best!

Oh, and while I'm talking about comics... tomorrow Dhark's Hero Stories will be coming off hiatus! So there's that to look forward to!

Thursday 18 May

Oof! Alright!! Feeling a little better than I have been, so that is good! Hopefully this new trend continues!! And also, there is a New Game+ update! Comics and health, two trends that are welcome to continue. And Alastair throwing dirt in Ada's eyes, yeah they never expect powers to use mundane methods of attack...

Wednesday 17 May

Here's this week's Death's Door update! Featuring me not being nice enough to immediately show what's happening with Tish, mwaha.

I sure am sick of being sick though, ugggh. Finally mostly healed from surgery (well, still a few weeks before I can carry anything heavy) and right back into feeling the same sort of sick I was before surgery?? Nnnnot great. I may miss some more updates this week, but I'll see how it goes

Tuesday 16 May

I think today's update speaks for itself. Zzzzz

Also feeling quite ill still and that is noooo gooooood. Gotta get back to the doctor's again and be like "Hey I don't got a gall bladder no more, why come I still can't eat food". And then... feel better and draw more comics!! That's the plan

Monday 15 May

S-s-s-s-super sleepy after what this weekend turned into. So no update today. But... uh... hopefully the following week is nice and smooth, and then I should be able to get an extra update done on Saturday to make up for it, maybe?? And also not miss any more updates *is super hopeful*

Sunday 14 May

Here's this week's The Breaking update! Been a very rough few days, so just flats at the moment. I'll have to see how the next day goes, I may miss an update or two depending on what happens.

Edit: shading's up now. You may need to refresh to see it

Friday 12 May

Yesterday's New Game+ update is now coloured, and me I am still a bit green around the gills, so I couldn't get a proper page done today, but there is still some sort of Random Encounter update! Here is to feeling better over the weekend. Because otherwise it is back to the doctor with meeeee

Thursday 11 May

Here's today's New Game+ update! Well, no colour just yet, hoping I'll get that up tomorrow though... feeling sick again. ...still? Ugh, not totally sure but I am feeling awfully like I was prior to getting my gallbladder removed so I'm not super happy about that. Hrmmmm hopefully this feeling goes away soon, but two days of having trouble eating food again.... not great.

Wednesday 10 May

Time for this week's Death's Door update! Tish... bad idea.

Tuesday 9 May

Here's today's New Game+ update! Dude, I think I have a problem. I reaaaaally need to stop killing Ceraph Clanners, huh?

Monday 8 May

Continuing to move slowly! Since I knew I wouldn't have the energy to do a full page today, I've got a half-size Random Encounter update! Not the most auspicious start to a volume, but it's still a start!

I'm also still trying to prepare comics to post during the middle of the year while I'm on holiday. It's coming up fast though, I really doubt I'll be able to build up that buffer that I used up again. So I'm going to try to do a Random Encounter filler volume to post over that time! I've started it, slowly, and I'm tracking it at the bottom of my IOU list. AC: 1/12! I think I need 12 pages to cover my holiday, but uhhh we'll see what I come up with.

Sunday 7 May

Here's today's The Breaking update! Featuring Syrras and her many wings, since that was the consensus on the forums! I am super glad it is the weekend, now I can lie on the couch most of the day again, much less painful than sitting up in front of a computer yes.

I also finished colouring Friday's Random Encounter update finally!

Saturday 6 May

Well! Ended up being another sore day, so I haven't gotten yesterday's page coloured quite yet, but I have gotten the title page for the next Random Encounter volume done! Now I sleep, zzz

Friday 5 May

Ended up being a bit of a rougher day today than I would have liked. Very sore, needed a while to recover once I got home from work, so I didn't quite get tonight's page finished... but I did get it inked, anyway! So here's today's Random Encounter update, it will be coloured tomorrow and I plan to also post the title page for the next volume then as well! Fingers crossed that everything goes a little more smoothly tomorrow than it did today. Dang abdominal surgery, why you gotta take so long to heal (still so glad it was done though, man I am sooo much better than I was before)

Thursday 4 May

Hooray, got some comic work done! Here's today's New Game+ update! What's that time? Time for things to go wrong again.

Got Monday's Random Encounter pages done too, so hopefully if I can continue on this little productive streak I can get that volume finished toorrow, and start the next one! We'll see what happens, naturally.

Wednesday 3 May

Here's this week's Death's Door update! Lion vs vampire. Not a thing I ever expected to draw

Tomorrow's New Game+ update is likely to be delayed, on account of I haven't drawn it yet and I got a lot of other things to do. But we'll seeeee. Friday's update I don't want to miss, but we'll seeeeee about that too since I still need to colour the last two pages.

Tuesday 2 May

Here's today's New Game+ update! The previous page is now fully coloured, too.

Back at work this week, and it's a bit rough to sit upright for an entire work day, oof. Means I'm especially tired and makes it a bit hard to get comics done, but I'll keep getting done what I can get done! I don't want to miss updates, but we'll see what happens. There's a good chance the next New Game+ update will be a bit delayed. I hate to miss updates, though! I really want to get New Game+ finished up this year, but it's going to take quite a bit of doing, there's still tons of pages left.

My main goal for this week is to get up to the next volume of Random Encounter! That might also take a lot of doing. I've been slowly writing a proper outline for the next volume today, it's a story that I first came up with quite some time ago (well, a good chunk of the volumes are), and one that I've tried to line up to start a few times already... but I've only just built up the confidence to try and tackle it. So! Hopefully that goes well. It's gonna be a Danni story. And a Loki story. And a dragon story. Assuming that I don't change my mind between now and then, haha. I do have a track record of changing what volume I decide to draw at the absolute last-minute. We'll seeee

Monday 1 May

Well! A little bit of catch-up, a little bit of fall-behind. I've got a double Random Encounter update up! ...Only it's not shaded just yet. I've got a lot of colouring to catch up on this week! Might miss an update or so this week too, still slowly recovering. But I'll continue to do my best!

Sunday 30 April

Slowwly working on Random Encounter. Been a bit of a rough day, I think I may have overdone it a bit. Looks like I might not be able to make up for a missed update just yet, but with any luck I won't be missing Monday's update! At any rate, I do have today's The Breaking update! And... actually I haven't yet written the next page of that, so as for that last panel, yeah if you've any particular preference for where the focus shifts next, feel free to post about it on the forums!

Saturday 29 April

Still working my hardest! But it's just all happening at a lower level since I'm healing. I hope to have a Random Encounter page done tomorrow! ...though, not sure if that will happen. It'll be done by Monday! I'd really like two RE pages done by then, but uh, we'll see. Either way, I'll certainly endeavour to have The Breaking done tomorrow! Got lots to do

Friday 28 April

No matter how much I want to draw one, I know I'm too tired and sore tonight to draw a Random Encounter page... so I decided instead to tackle something from the IOU bucket, so here's an extra Death's Door update! I've also coloured the previous page of that one. Still haven't gotten New Game+ coloured though, working quite slowly!

I'm extremely hopeful I'll be able to draw a Random Encounter page tomorrow, but uh... we'll see how I go.

Thursday 27 April

Still very sore! Ughhh heal faster guts. But there is a New Game+ update today! Uhhh, still haven't been able to do any colour though, sorry! I might try to catch up on colouring the past two day's updates tomorrow instead of posting a Random Encounter update, depends on how things are going.

Wednesday 26 April

Still sore and tired, so it's just inks for today's Death's Door update. But it feels like it's been a very long time since I drew one, so I figure lines are better than nothing!

Chances are pretty good I'll miss more updates in the latter half of this week, got lots to do still and really still feeling knocked out. Really this should be my second week of bed rest, but... endless things to do

Tuesday 25 April

Here's today's New Game+ update! Alastair is the only one here who is kind of having a good day

Monday 24 April

Oof, I can't believe it took more than an entire week to get today's Random Encounter update up and it's only just inked and a little bit of colour... I'll get it fully coloured a little later... still moving extremely extremely slowwwwww agh dang guts heal already!!

Edit: comic's fully coloured now, you might need to refresh if you can't see it. Thanks for sticking with me while I heal up!

Sunday 23 April

Here's today's The Breaking update! Time for a new volume, I guess! I was going to put three more pages in this volume but I ended up scrapping them, they didn't really add very much soooo they get cut!! Unfortunately I only decided on that halfway through inking what was originally going to be 137, so that was kind of a waste of time :V Oh well!

My guts are still pretty sore! I'm still not able to move around very much, which is a bit disappointing. Really want to return to full speed this week! ...but I'm not sure that's possible. Pain still makes things quite slow, oh well. I'll do my best.

...Oh yeah! I also updated The Breaking archives page a little bit while I was in hospital. I updated a few random scripts around the site, but most of them the changes are pretty small. I made some major changes to the Fall archives page, but hrmm I still need to like, start that comic properly. Once I get some of these other comics finished!!

Saturday 22 April

Dhark's Hero Stories is going on a hiatus so Puyon can focus on studies (way more important). I'm working on getting some comics done, but things are still going very slowly my end. Halfway through inking the next Random Encounter page, but unfortunately looks like that won't be completed until Monday, so no extra updates today. Hopefully tomorrow is good and I can get The Breaking done for Sunday!

Friday 21 April

Well, it should be a Random Encounter update I suppose, but I'm still slowly healing and not really able to get one of those done just yet, so here's a New Game+ update!

Gonna be a little bit longer until I'm back to full steam, I think. I've put up a tracker for the updates I've missed so I can eventually catch up though

Tuesday 18 April

Here's the last of my buffer, with today's New Game+ update! Claw to the.... rescue?

I'm very slowly on the mend. I'm definitely feeling a lot better than I was before I got the gallbladder removed, so that's good! Well, that's digestion-wise, anyway. With my guts having all been cut up I'm still feeling pretty poorly around that, but every day I'm seeing noticeable improvements in mobility and the pain is slowly going down. At the moment I'm quite bedbound, I can have a little hobble around the house, but I gotta spend most of my time lying down. I can't really spend much time at the moment even just sitting up, so I can't quite get back into drawing comics just yet. But I'm hoping it won't be much longer until I can sit up and draw!

For now I'm finding it relaxing doing some little marker drawings, which I've been posting on twitter because it's a bit tough to get on my laptop to post things properly at the moment. Also posting lots of pictures of my housemate's cat because he loves when I'm stuck on the couch.

Anyway, ummmm! I'm hoping I'll be able to draw *something* new for the site before Friday. I'm meant to take two weeks off sick I think but ehhhhh that sounds extremely boring, hopefully it is less than one week and then I'm back up and about.

Saturday 15 April

We don't have any proper updates prepared for today, but here's a great filler that Puyon and Tapewolf made for me. Thanks, guys!

So like... life updates, huh? I had been sick for the past uh... pretty much entire month. But I really didn't think about it too much, there were a lot of worse things going on over the past month (that seem to be mostly better or on the way to being better, so that's good). I probably shoulda gotten off my butt and got things checked out sooner, but to be fair it was a pretty long wait to get ultrasounds and stuff... well anyway I'm sort of rambling. SO WHAT IS UP? I just got my gallbladder removed! I'm out of hospital now so that's a bonus, but I'm in a lot of pain and will be for a little while until I recover more. So I'm going to have to take a break from comics until I can sit upright without being in a lot of pain. Not sure when that will be, but I'll seeee youuuu thennnn.

Until then, I'll be on a brief hiatus. Well, I think I have one more New Game+ update in the buffer, so I'll put that up Tuesday.

Thursday 13 April

Extra-early update - y'alls are lucky I got some filler left - because I'm currently sitting in hospital waiting for surgery. I'll be here a few days so there is not going to be any more comic updates until I get out.

Here's that New Game+ update, and I will be back... eventually...

Wednesday 12 April

We've changed the update schedule some, now Death's Door will update on Wednesdays, and Dhark's Hero Stories will go up on Saturdays! So! That being said, here's today's Death's Door update!

Tuesday 11 April

Here's today's New Game+ update. Oh yeah. That guy.

Monday 10 April

Here's today's Random Encounter update! Just lines for now, colour will follow later in the week... Still very ill. 4 weeks and counting :V I'm thinking of starting a betting pool for if I end up in hospital again or not

Sunday 9 April

Here's today's The Breaking update! Don't screw this up, guys.

Saturday 8 April

Trying to get back into the swing of normal updates, here's a Death's Door update! That whole "vampires can't cross running water thing" is like my favourite vampire schtick but how the heck. Would that even work. So goofy.

Friday 7 April

And so ends the first week in April, and so let's get things back to normal...ish. Here's the last of that junk, and tomorrow maybe a Death's Door update? Umm. I guess I'll see how I'm feeling.

Thanks to Puyon and Tapewolf for helping me out with writing some tracts this year!

Thursday 6 April

Phew! Last trick tract of the year is here! This one was written by Puyon! We both actually wrote 6-page fey-themed trick tracts today so that is a weird coincidence. I'll save mine for the next set of tracts another year though.

So as that's the last trick tract... tomorrow will be a little something extra to round out the fools' week updates, then I will try to return to normal updates. Still very sick, life is still a butt, but hey comics are nice to work on.

Wednesday 5 April

Here's another Trick Tract! There's just one more left for this year's batch, then back to some sort of normal updates I think. Not totally sure what tomorrow's trick tract will be but we'll see. Always do these things last-minute, eyyy

Tuesday 4 April

More than halfway through now! Here's today's Trick Tract! This one was written by Tapewolf! And I really should have started drawing this one early instead of spending time cooking fancy dinner for like, lots of reasons. But at the moment mostly because it's 1am so zzzz

Monday 3 April

Time for yet another Trick Tract! Light and dark powers can use other magic than their goddess's, they just don't often tend to bother to.

I'm still pretty sick (3 weeks now, woo) and things are still weird here, but I think I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things so hopefully I'll be able to get a full rollout of tracts done this week and then return to normal updates. We'll see what happens.

Sunday 2 April

Another day, another Trick Tract! A lot of this might be rubbish, but you can make illusions from flower petals. Starring Delly and Keleth! Keleth's a cameo of a friend, and they're both usually seen around HH. Delly is usually seen with a floral crown so that seems appropriate.
