#388 | Chapter 11, Page 4 Posted by: Clownfish Studios , December 7, 2014 Can’t we all just get along? Share! Tweet Insectoid ^ No, Kneon… evil will always be evil. 😉 And this will probably lead right into the events Mia saw in her second dream. Marlena H. Yes, but what leads to Mia getting a haircut? Is Rhen trying to disguise her as a boy? And of course, she’s gone home, so she has to spend some time there. It’s been a while since we’ve seen Earth. Insectoid Ooh, good point. But of course, time flows differently in Belatyr… Cynthia Carolina Hoekstra Mia getting a haircut? Dream? What are you guys talking about? Stampers Saverem I really do NOT like these people….! zgrssd Then that means they are good villains. Stampers Saverem Yep, it do! Da’Zlein Well, you could have a likeable villain if you understood what their plan was and/or any of them had an ounce of charisma, but for now they are just immoral jerkoffs Gallie Can I get a triple Dun-Dun-DUNNNNNN? Elaina, Then and Mia in these guys crosshairs? Triple danger for the crew of the True North! DarthEowyn Just to be sure, now we will have to pay to be able to see the comic in color? Or is it just that you don’t have the time to do the coloring at the moment? Kneon The latter, I’m afraid. I’m busy playing catch up, freelance and some other stuff. The Patreon is pretty much defunct for now — I’ve already contacted backers about that. We might return to some sort of crowdfunding option at some point, but for right now we’re not going to pursue it. We’re technically still “on hiatus” and I’ve only posted pages of Chapter 11 because our “birthday” was in late August. Stay tuned! DarthEowyn I prefer it to be the latter, no prob with that. Cheer up! AniMatsuri What? I was wondering where all the Patreon links on this page went. Sorry it didn’t work out. Not enough supporters? Kneon Oh no, that wasn’t the issue. We didn’t have the campaign up long enough to be able to determine whether or not we’d have enough supporters. There’s stuff going on behind the scenes with Shadowbinders that we can’t really elaborate on right now. But for now, something like Patreon might not be the best course of action for us. Stay tuned. 😉 namaste What’s up with these tribe legends? And why/how can Mia be a mage? Only direct and first born decendents can be mages, and the ring came from her grandfather so the ‘same gender’ thing is out to. Maybe magic works differently on earth, like time does. Only time moves differently in both worlds, and the amount of time passing is never the same, whereas this would have rules or something. Adam Billman Time seems to move at an 14:1 ratio Belatyr:Earth (from Chapter 3, Page 40). So for every generation that passes, approximately 14 pass on Belatyr. Because of how little information we have about her family’s past, it would be premature to assume that Mia is not descended from mages. In fact it seems almost certain given the existence of the book about Belatyr. However, I doubt that Mia’s mother has ever been to Belatyr, which leaves either the grandmother, or perhaps a great-grandmother. This would mean that if Mia is descended from Mages, her bloodline has been out of Belatyr for 28 to 42 generations (about 420 – 756 years depending upon the average age parents have their first child). This could also be different if the amount of time flow was different at different times. Of course another option is that she is not descended from mages and that the ring simply grants its wearer magical powers. This is possible, though I would like to know how her family came to have the ring, and if the ring was made specifically for them. This is a comic about magic and steampunk technologies though, so I should probably stop reading into it. Scarsdale From I’ve read her “missing” father was a mage due to the ring that traveled between the worlds and when the clown was purging her father hid on earth for a while, long enough to start a family and have a life here but once he disappeared his ring was in hiding and once she found it she gained the same or similar abilities but does not know how to control re-read the strip from the beginning and you will see it clearly like i have Adam Billman Just discovered this comic and am sad that you are not actively updating it. You are probably busy, but this potential fan would like you to make more comics. Also, awesome comic. The artwork is interesting and the story is also. Blrzr Fblixn Nice line art and shading. Awful color palate. Blrzr Fblixn Palette. Sorry.
