Dave, Selkie‘s creator, is going to be joining us for the local SNAFU Con! It’s a fun little convention here in Reno and I’d encourage any to come by our table and say hi to the both of us, and ask for commissions and merch! Yeah! Lots of that! I’m not sure what Dave will be bringing yet but I will be having a brand new item just right for all those fans of Halloween so come on over to the Artist Alley and find us! We are at table number 32. Here we are! See you all there!

For those interested, here is the link that’ll give the big picture;) Pay close attention to the BBW in the middle three panels when Alice is trying to time stop him, and that the “ka-chink” in the last panel is his fist dropping down to reveal a weapon’s barrel at his wrist.
For a refresher, please note that, despite Alice calling it a “time stop”, the watch merely speeds her up. The BBW appears to have similar tech as he is seen keeping up with her just fine.
As you can see above, we have instead of the usual strip a pic of the BBW in all his full-blown glory. I am actually on vacation. There will also be a Fourth of July strip on the 3rd in lieu of the normal storyline but the usual strips should be back starting around 7/11. If there are any delays, I’ll keep ya’ll posted. More exciting things to come so stick with us for a grand show!
Things are going very well. We did not roleplay the session last week which has given me a little more time to ensure that everything is set up. We will be re-doing one of the first adventures I did with the shards characters. Its not one that we’ve put in the comic, but I’m going to reset the characters to their original power level and see how my “leveling” system works after the adventure.
So I won’t get to do the adventure I really want to do, BUT I will get to see how things are turning out. Most of the characters are finished, but I’m dreading making Dorothy, she’s always been so complex :). I’m especially excited about this version of Cinderella. I’ve always felt that she had flavor, but was never on the same power level as the other characters.
So things are going well. I don’t have the content ready for the site yet but I’m VERY excited about this whole thing. The Numenara system seems absolutely perfect and I’ve had to make only the slightest tweaks to make it all fit in. So if you’re interested in this type of thing keep a watch out :).
So life has been interesting for me lately with being moved to a Swing shift and a few other things at work. It has cut into my time considerably. On the plus side though Shards RP will be coming back with a vengeance.
A system called “Numenara” released by Monte Cook has caught my attention and I have started to convert the characters over into the Numenara system. So far Velveteen is done and it was actually quite easy with a few minor modifications. We should be running a private session on Saturday to see how this system holds up for fun and roleplay.
If the roleplay is successful I will post the character sheets of all the characters used during the session. I may also record the session for audio only since Jade will not be present and wants to hear what is going on :).
There is no strip this week:( Now that Valentine’s Day is over… I am now in charge of the store for the next ten days while my boss goes on vacation!, I have an aunt coming to stay with me so I have to prep my house, and I have a cold or allergies or some nonsense which makes me just wanna go to bed early which sucks because I’d rather be drawing or writing — or both! Sorry and see ya next week!
Aaaaand… After working all week long, I get Christmas day off only to be sick. Again, the strip is delayed! Argh! But at least I did a nice xmas poster in advance… Hope it helps chase the doldrums away, and hope no one else gets this icky bug I keep picking up…
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
This week’s strip is delayed due to RL + working a holiday schedule at a flower shop + the Dark Crystal author quest submission being due this month + I am actually making some xmas presents this year and I am behind on everything! Ack! Look for a sketch this week and the finished one on the day after Xmas. I still plan on doing an xmas color picture plus I contributed to Seros Senric’s yearly holiday game/card thing. I will provide a link when it is available. Sorry for the delay in the story! New content aside from comic strips starts after xmas/on the start of the new year!
I wanted to pause and say thanks for reading. I really appreciate the support and sticking with the comic through these dry spells. The comic story is in no way under threat of stopping. We have SO much more content to go into the strips! So thanks for stickin’ with it!
