That Sea Witch is Guinevere; you may recognize her from the background of a few of the Sea Witch scenes. Next week I'll be at the TsukinoCon convention, so my colours may appear earlier or later than expected. I'll be there as a Cosplay guest, judging the cosplay contest, and running a workshop on Worldbuilding if anyone is in the Victoria area.

Now we return to some of the details of the first couple of chapters and their bonus materials. Fausto is no fool, and yet...? What was he doing at Garrison Bay, which is well outside The Revenge's territory? And how would he let himself be captured by a Sea Witch? There are many mysteries here, and not enough time to solve them with the Sea Witches rousing their captain.

Shield is taking charge of the situation, and being First Mate, he'll be best suited for getting to the bottom of this and protecting Fausto from the Sea Witches' wrath.

Back on the DeHavilland! And the First Mate, Shield, has a nose for trouble. Can he hold off a whole ship of angry Sea Witches all on his own? Does it count as theft if the item in question is Gun's half-brother and he's still alive?

Freya & Angrboda, and Nimue and Kali in hot pursuit...
But the Pyrate's Accord means no pirates in the schools are allowed to harm each other during the yearly meeting. What's a Sea Witch to do?

Freya and Angrboda are twins from Latolia, where Sights comes from. Freya can transform herself into a cat, and Angrboda steals strength from men (though she can only hold it for a little while, and it makes her this haggard, discoloured monster while she uses her powers).
Well, now the chase is on! They'd better run.

@Mitani: I'm glad you like her! I hope no one reading has a phobia of snakes <3
@Captain Apricot: Yup! Magic strong! Bound familiars have heightened abilities, among the pagan faiths of Uvatspere.
@Captain Apricot: Thank you so much! T u T
It's my favourite part to draw.
Too bad they weren't trying to make a breakout under cover of darkness... but by then, the Pyrate's Accord would be over, and the Lady Bristol would have set sail for their own seas. Nope, if Gun's going to save Fausto from Siren's clutches, he's got to get him out now!

Hello and Happy New Year!

I hope you all have fun plans for the New Year and have plotted out your aspirations and goals for 2019. I've got a lot of things planned, mostly writing related, but I've also finished penning the rest of the script for Weaponry, Chapter 7. This Chapter will be 34 pages long, and this bonus origin comic will be Blade's. You can see some of the preview things in the Patreon paid tiers.

I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday! I've been busy working on some last-minute things in preparation for the end of year. I have many plans for 2019. I hope you all have good things on the horizon.

@justw894: Nope, Bullet was with Gun in the very first chapter. Bullet had eaten a goat and had to stay behind on the De Havilland, so when Gun went out with the crew on the Ballista, he didn't have his snake with him. Now that they're back on the DeHavilland, they're reunited!
Hello friends! It's been a crazy few weeks, but I'm hoping to have lots of good news to report come the new year. In the meantime, I have been working hard on a few projects that have been soaking up all my time.
I hope you have fun plans for the end of year celebrations, and that you all get some time off to relax and gear up for 2019.

In case you don't remember or in case you haven't read the bonus material from chapter 1, Gun is rather skilled in the mystic arts. If he has a bad feeling, it's best to take heed! Bullet is also highly tuned to magic, and as Gun's familiar, they can amplify each other's senses.

NaNo is now complete! My final tally: 101,180 words (my all-time highest output in a month). More importantly, I finished my first draft of Briar & Thorn, my queer romance fantasy novel. I'm about half-way through my read-through now, after which I'll be sending it off to Beta Readers. If you're interested in Beta Reading for me, please let me know!

I've missed drawing/colouring Blade. He's so ridiculous(ly pretty)!

In an update on my NaNoWriMo: I've written 98,000 words this month so far, and I have only 5 days left to finish off the last two chapters. I don't want to jinx things, but I'm pretty sure I'll be able to completely finish the manuscript this month! This has already been my best ever NaNo attempt, so whatever happens it's a win for me. Next up, I'll be giving it a quick clean-up and then sending it off to my Beta Readers for feedback.

@Captain Apricot: Thanks so much!! I had a blast, and it turned out I was the "Mysterious Host" which was hilarious.
@Ronan: ....Both. Definitely both! It doesn't help that what's he's smoking is like a cross between hashish and opium, so...he's also a bit high.
