Well that's a thing 8V

I survived the convention :'D And hopefully without con plague but we'll see on that. Either way, I've got a fair amount of prints and stickers still so if any of you guys are interested I've posted them here: http://store.synestories.com/
I'm probably not going to do another convention for a while--they take a lot of time away from everything else and I've got a lot of catching up to do.

Thanks for reading and see you next week! :D
This was sort of a last minute announcement last week, but announcing for REAL this time, Ink Drop is holding an art contest for drawing our lil squiddy mascot :D https://inkdropcafe.com/contest2018
One of the prizes will be the physical copy of chapters 1-3 which got printed in a short run for the convention on Saturday (If there's any left after the convention, those will go online next week).

Speaking of the convention, that is this Saturday and Sunday so if you're in the tidewater area come say hi!!

IT IS DONE D:<

Thank you again for your patience ;w; I'm working on putting together stuff for the convention next weekend now and after that I'm hoping things will be more manageable xD If you happen to be anywhere near Virginia Beach, that's where the convention is taking place! Come say hi :D

Thanks for reading and see you next week! (For real this time lol)

Edit: Also hey surprise this just went live :D https://inkdropcafe.com/contest2018

Greetings from Denver! Out of town for a couple of weeks for work, but still comicking while I'm out here xD If I accidentally make the update go up at the wrong time....I blame jet lag. Time is an illusion.

Gonna mention this now because this chapter's getting pretty close to over (I think), but I'm considering making the end of this chapter a two week break for the sake of catching up a bit. The end of this chapter is the end of what I consider to be volume one, so seems like a good time. Yeah. We still have several pages before then. ANYWAY thanks for reading and see you next week!

There's a major issue with telling time in a tidally-locked world with no visible celestial bodies for most of the day: you need a reliable, untampered-with watch.

Thanks for reading and see you next week!

I want you all to know that this page birthed the nickname "Saltiria" for the ocean.

Page 100 woo! :'D

I'm still working on catching up a bit, but once I'm a bit more caught up I may do something special to celebrate. We shall see.

Either way, thanks for reading, thanks for all the fantastic comments last week (I was cackling for days), and see you all next week!

Footnote: armory stones are essentially bags of holding, except the "holding" area is somewhere else on the same plane, not hammerspace.

Since we're sort of a couple weeks past one of the big reveals, spoiler warning page is going away again for a bit to return again someday in the future 8)

Speaking of spoilers, since most the basic details about the Obligation have been revealed (at least, how Noblemen and Magicians factor in to it), I wrote a post with some history and extra details! I'll be transitioning this post over to the about page when I get a free moment (Note: Probably avoid the comments on this page if you're avoiding spoilers, because the comments here discuss this post as well whoops).

Thanks for reading and see you next week!

Hey guys, sorry for the WIP x.x Unfortunately the convention had me more wiped than I anticipated and I wasn't able to devote as much time to comicking as I would have liked. But hey, it was a fantastic learning experience and I'm excited for the next one! Next one will be in May and hopefully I'll be a bit better prepared by then. Fortunately that one's also local, saving me a long drive :')

ANYWAY I pushed to get at least the flats done to keep story momentum going. The page will be finished for real ASAP! (possibly tonight.)

Thanks for reading and see you next week :D

He's baaaaaaaaaaaaaack~

As a reminder, Kabocha, the creator of Linked and another admin of Ink Drop Cafe, and I will be tabling at Galactic Con this weekend on 2/24! If you happen to be in the area, feel free to stop by! :D

Thanks for reading and see you next week!

TWO YEARS, GUYS. TWO YEARS (almost). I've been sitting on this info for so long and I can finally start talking about it *crying*

For real though, I'm probably going to start writing up a blog post on some of the details of the Obligation, as the magic system is called. Din and Altiria's explanation is a little simplified, but mostly--against all belief--the truth.

Incidentally, I'm going to be tabling with Kabocha, the creator of Linked and another admin of Ink Drop Cafe, at Galactic Con on 2/24! If you happen to be in the ballpark of Northern Delaware, feel free to stop by, say hi, and grab some stickers :D

Thanks for reading and see you next week!

FUUU[*tableflips curry in surprise*]

On the previous page I was guessing it was the fair from Chris's childhood but NOPE OKAY. No mud on his face. No wonder we didn't recognize him.
