Did I mention a few weeks back that the comic was about to get really dark for a while? Well, between this and what’s going on across the battlefield we are there. Don’t worry, the comic will one day return to jokes and jaunty adventures. There just might be a death or two between now and then.
If you’re curious, Ophelia’s request is in relation to something she and Grandpa talked about a few pages ago/two years back.
In cheerier news, work continues rapidly on Clockworks the RPG setting book! The book is over 1/3 of the way written! You can now make characters and know the special rules to play them. You just can’t build weird science devices yet or use the full rules for magic, and I haven’t fully detailed the world or given you adventures to run yet, but we’re on our way!
Once the manuscript is done, expect the Kickstarter to pay editors and more artists and compile the whole thing and print it and sell it and whatnot. I’m shooting for around the new year.
See you next week. Sorry again for maiming and possibly killing Ophelia. I’m a bad person.
