That weapon bracelet has been around for a while, hasn't it?

Working on bringing updates back up to a once a week schedule. Also reviving the communication stuff that had gone dead during the long hiatus. There will be some lovely fanart popping up soon that is overdue for sharing!

replies:

re Eva Emaria: Footwork is so important though. All the bladework in the world won't do you any good is you aren't where you need to be (plus its pretty decent exercise for us modern folks)

re pfmoi: its a big old world outside of that little village.

re man in black: Time for drill sergeant mode!

re Imola: Being a jerk is an asset when doing drills.

re Arrikanez: hopefully she'll learn enough to use the sword safely, but she won't be battling vampires anytime soon.

re StellaFrost: Hey Stella, Sorry but I can't find the forum pm. Could you try again (Smackjeeves PM or hurrucksfardel@gmail.com)? I'm still getting things like that up and running after the long hiatus. Opportunities for Sierra to pop up will be soon!

re Xylas_Incarnum: It is pretty foundational training at this point :) Drake touched on it a bit, but even with years of training she wouldn't stand much of a chance against Solifidians with any superhuman physical traits. A lot of this is to get her out of the "danger to herself and others" category with such a potentially dangerous blade. She won't be having and dramatic battles anytime soon, but there may be some clever uses in the future.


re WinterGold: I've got a tumblr (Daidaishar there too) but I mostly use it to repost random things I find funny so I can find them again. You can feel free to contact me there if you like. I've also got an email set up for this comic: hurrocksfardel@gmail.com I've been neglecting it a bit during the long hiatus, so I've got a few fanarts that need to share from there too. I'll probably be posting those soon too.

I think the effort really paid off. It feels like a real lived-in space.
How dare he interrupt the poor dear's drink!
Hang in there Mr. Fluffs! Don't give up!
Another slightly self-indulgent fencing page. The next page will be more story oriented.

Footwork is murder on the legs. Lots of moving around in a partial crouch. Poor Joan.

Replies:

re pfmoi: I think most folks are so used to playing with toy swords and not actually hitting that switching to really trying to hit is a tough change.

re man in black: Yes, Drake's still not used to not having nice armored scales anymore


re Imola: Agreed about Drake. There was some twisting in the pose that went wonky, but at the point I noticed how off it looked, if was too late for an easy fix. ah well.

re StellaFrost: I can't spend all this time building it up and then do nothing, cant I :)

re Eva Emaria: Bats would be such a cheap move! Imagine focusing on an opponent when they suddenly explode into bats in your face.

re doom Bubbles: can't stab them all!

re Arrikanez: here's another update for you!

tRickityHouses: Glad you're still reading and enjoying!
The markings on the god's hands are gorgeous!
Starbucks is probably best for everyone involved. I doubt she'd punch a human barista, no matter how much she's craving coffee.

Poor fellow. His audience doesn't seem to have enjoyed the story as much as we did.
So that's why they keep their hair so long!
From what I've heard about the treatment of the Emishi, invoking the emperor was probably a bad idea.
Superhero stress has got to be murder on all sorts of delicate modern appliances. How many coffee makers has she gone through?
Zilck is everything a fratricidal prince could want in a subject, of course he can do no wrong.

@Maro-King: Let him hear, I fear no bun buns! (that is a blatant lie, Watership Down is the only movie I remember giving me nightmares when I was little)

bun bun it is! (his serious face only makes him cuter)
Putting in the effort to give them all distinctive face shapes really paid off!
I love the slime monster's expression in the last panel.
Love the scratchy insanity wolves!
We humans are pretty skilled at entertaining absurdities.

Stealing badly is bad. They should only do it if they won't get caught :)
Sorry it took me so long to reply! I sometimes like to wait to read a bunch of pages in a batch. The scratchier style works well for the subject matter, and the deliberate use of color can help clarify panels that otherwise could be muddled.
