Yay! Ophelia’s not a magic fueled undead monstrosity bent on destruction! Whew!
I’d say I’m sorry for the massive fake out in this page, but I’m not. (I did warn you that I’m a bad person.)
This isn’t quite how Ophelia’s near death played out in the home game, but I wanted to do something that captured that uncertainty, without dragging things out for months on end. Next page, we’ll flash back a bit as Toby fills in Ophelia on what she missed.
We’re now at the end of the action for the big scene that began almost two years ago. O.o (thanks taking a year off.) You should go all the way back to Chapter 10 and see how it all reads now that you don’t have to wait a week or months between pages.
In other news, I’ve been working on the Savage Worlds setting a lot in the last couple of weeks. I’ve made some major updates to the world map. Take a look:
Our heroes are in Clorencia City, in the heart of the Great Republic of Roumion, in that northeastern continent. Thorton came from Irone, in Orulon, that large southeastern continent. The Mysterious Black Metal Object comes from San Khotal, on the continent of Noriun, and Grandpa found it on the broken remains of Melas, in the center of the map.
And thus ends our geography lesson.
If you haven’t joined the FB group, you should do so asap, as it’s been pretty busy lately.
Ill be at Archon in Collinsville, IL this weekend. Come say hi! I’ll be running a Clockworks game on Sunday, from 11am to 3pm, and I’m in panels on Friday and Saturday. Because of Archon, next week’s page might be a bit later in the week, but I should be able to finish it between Tuesday and Thursday. I’ll try to get some line art drawn while I’m at the con too.
