Ohhh! That wasn't Blackfeather.
How sad!

The back 3q view of her in the previous page was a dead ringer, no? I suspect the plot might get a bit confusing here and there. Hopefully, it'll all make more sense later.

Oh no ... nonono. Don't kill the player character!

For some reason I wonder now whether Durgo will also make a medieval reappearance. :)

Durgo will probably pop up again somewhere down the dusty road.

Oh these guys are smooth! If I were Feingor I'd be insisting they each be dunked in the village pond to check the veracity of their testimony; if they drown, then they were of course telling the truth. It's in the King's Codex, check it if you don't believe me!

I'm also thinking, wait, two 3x3 plots side by side, you could build a house on that size of ground, a house with a door and a window and everything. A spinster magnet, for sure.

Good fun, I look forward to Thursdays coming around each week.

The ordeal by water, in most cases, exonerated the subject if he/she floated. In cases of witchcraft, it was the opposite: guilty if floated, innocent if sunk. The science of the law is mysterious, no?

Two 3x3 plots in NYC are worth mad money, yo.

Mad mad money. You could rent it out for quite a good profit, I bet.

Young Pieter's had a pretty rough time of it. Much of his current angst and twitchiness come from this.

Against my better judgment I started wondering how the girl ended up in the well and got a glimpse of a bleak, bleak world. That is some great writing.

Songgu Kwon
Thanks. What happened to the girl is a mystery that will most likely never be solved... just like so many cases in our own bleak world.

Whoa. This opens up the possibility that this whole comic could have been a product inside Pieter's mind!

Indeed! The interesting question is, if that was the case, would that make the characters and stories feel less "real" to some readers? And if so, to what degree? Half as real? 15% less real? 100% less real?

What if all of reality is just a product of your mind?

"I think, therefor, I am; but I can not prove that the rest of the world is not a figment of my imagination."

Very few remember that second part of the quote.

Good point. I also can find no proof. In that sense, we're all living in our own small sensory pods.

I started reading this comic for the whimsy and beautiful art, but the depth of the story keeps me coming back time after time. Tragic stories, even in the lives of the wretched serfs toiling in indignity, love and casual death, injustice and endurance.

When I first started the comic, the plan was to keep things light and whimsical... but I naturally tend to gravitate toward darker themes so... here we are! ;)

Insanely good storytelling. Bravo Songgu, job well done. Every thing about this piece was brilliant.

Thanks dude! This is one of the more word balloon heavy pages so I thought it might be rather dull but it came out ok. :)

Not dull at all, man. Top notch!

Evoking a feeling or emotion can be as exciting as any action sequence, sometimes even more so. On top of being a damn good artist, you're becoming a damn good writer too.

This entire sequence is a pretty big departure for fantasy stories...but it is pretty interesting and unique! Elf never fails to amaze me.

Thanks fellas! This story is fast approaching the end. Some of the mysteries will be solved. Some will not. Thanks for sticking with it so far!

Worry not for the dullnes you percieve. Most "wordy" comics/webcomics get bad rap because they are wordy in each post/page, and since most have typed words they seem cheap. This a really nice way to do it brah.

Thanks, brah!
