Author Trivia #2: Colors
Thought this was going to be purely black and white due to manga influence, right? Well, let's say colors are really important in this... They're just simple paint tool fills, but we're sure you can figure out a pattern.
Mondain Trivia #13: Bloodlines III / Convention season!
Most of the rulers of the Lux Alliance's cities are the children of Old King de Lux, with Le Monde being ruled by Princess Lumière. Some of Old King de Lux's siblings had children at prolific rates, creating households like the de Nuits and la Haines. Although they are not considered part of the Royal Household, they still possess their blood, overflowing with magic, garnering respect on that basis.

/ This page was meant to be aired a week before FanimeCon - when we would've taken a one-week hiatus - thus the "to be continued." We're posting the story at a slightly faster pace, so looks like we'll move the hiatus to the week after. I'll be attending Fanime on that Monday, and will likely be tuckered-out.
Author Trivia #1: CGI I
The tableware and finery in this was created with SketchUp. It's a great program for people that want clean looking furnishings and buildings!

Mondain Trivia #12: Bloodlines II
The system of nobility in Le Monde was partially inspired by the vassal family from Japan's feudal era, thus there are nobles who serve others of their kind despite allegedly being above such activities. Most work in service to a social better tends to be secretarial or military in nature, and the power of magic tends to make swallowing such a pill easier. Of course, there is always the issue of pride.

Mondain Trivia #11: Bloodlines I
As nobility descend from mighty heroes of old, blood lineage is considered extraordinarily important. Not only does it determine what type of magic a noble may be capable of manifesting, it also determines what political alliances one is born into.

Mondain Trivia #10: Fashion II
Often, clothes are gifted to the people of Le Monde by various religious organizations that like to incorporate flairs derived from their mythologies. The Church of the Morning Star likes to attach sheets of silk to rudimentary armor plates on their fashion for nobles because it reminds people of their stories of winged warriors called "angels." Meanwhile, the Observatory likes to use fleece hoodies for both their teachers and students - many of whom are peasants - due to the idea that their heads should be covered from Heaven's sight, and also because they're cheap.

Mondain Trivia #9: Trade I
Because of Le Monde's location at a crossroads of multiple metropolises and loci of magical power, the city has developed an unrivaled economy. The city's also rather close to the sea, with artificial canals being dug to facilitate business with passing sailors.

Fumble #1
That portrait in the last panel was supposed to feature An Angel Leading a Soul into Hell by Hieronymus Bosch. We forgot to add it. Our bad!

Mondain Trivia #8: Fashion I
The setting was inspired by the Thirty Years' War, but the attire of the characters is from all over the place. The noble class tend to be dressed in outfits from the Baroque era, but some are outright Medieval, and may even incorporate armored plates sewn into their linings. Commoners' clothes look particularly modern, complete with hoodies and ankle boots. This is largely because the writer is a fan of K-pop and is a terrible person.

Mondain Trivia #7: Seals I
Many of the more magically gifted members of the nobility throughout the world craft magical ley lines and loci into their homesteads to amplify their power. These seals allow nobles to perform incredible feats within their homes with little fear of exhaustion. This idea for the setting was inspired by the concept of lair actions from Dungeons & Dragons' fifth edition.

Mondain Trivia #6: the Proving
Knighthood in Le Monde is only granted to gentlemen and ladies of noble birth who can pass a trial called the Proving, a test of martial and magical skill that involves slaying an uncontrolled undead in the city's dilapidated north. Because destroying weaker undead like zombies is sufficient, it is generally considered an easy test - although because of the sheer number of applicants, nearly all the easy marks have been culled, leaving only truly dangerous monsters. The Proving does not recognize this - indeed, some nobles prefer things this way, so as to weed-out any future rivals.

Mondain Trivia #5
Le Monde is an ancient city, its foundations being laid along the river Acheron long before the Lux Alliance was formed back in 1 AR.

Mondain Trivia #4
Although it's specifically the demonym for those from le Monde, people from le Rêve and ill-fated le Cauchemar refer to themselves as "Mondains" as well due to a shared culture and history.

Mondain Trivia #3
The templars and even the prince-electors of the Ketzer Empire have been entertaining rumors that Le Monde is a mad place, carved out of the corpse of the god Bacchus, who thirstily drinks the blood of its citizens in an effort to resurrect himself, using the nobles as his avatars. Indeed, this was the main reason the Godslayers had chosen to crusade against Le Monde.

Don and I based Le Monde's architecture and general layout on Paris, Bordeaux, and Saint-Émilion: Paris for its tight alleys and monuments, Bordeaux for its wider areas, and Saint-Émilion for some of the larger buildings.

Mondain Trivia #1
The city of Le Monde is ruled by a hereditary aristocracy called "la Noblesse." Comprising only 1% of the city's populace and possessing legal powers and privileges that horrify other lands in their excess, they alone dictate the lives of over 2 million souls.

Hi, everyone! This is Seven, author of the comic. My partner, Don, handles the art. This is our first full-length comic, and as such, we're experimenting with lots of different styles and techniques. One of our major influences is Korean manwha, where the shadows are sometimes more important than the light of the image. We also drop lots of references to roleplaying and video games, because why not?
Seven here. This opening crawl was inspired by the RPG Regime Diabolique, from which I got many ideas concerning noble pastimes. The first panel was originally pitched by Don as being a torture room scene, but I figured we go with charred corpses for the opportunity to try cool effects.
