Hey guys, sorry, no real time to write anything. Rushing off to go out of town for a couple of days. Will try to upload everything on time, catch you later, have a great Wednesday!

Okay, after I got back from the trip I realised ho shnapps the page is SUPER bright, which is normal but I think the lack of contrast made the page pretty darn hard to look at. I've tweaked things a bit so the ice stuff is a little easier to differentiate from the background, adjusted the colours on the summons because I messed up the first time (used the wrong colours so it was too light) and I also added Seia's incantation for his spell (which I deliberately didn't put in earlier because I didn't have time :'D). Sorry for all the belated tweaks!

Who needs levitation?

When you have ice elevators, you don't need no levitation~ <3 XD

Have a great time, Rufi *hugs*

Oh, he already smashed one? Awww....
(green down, purple and yellow as well as green eyes and brown eyes to go)

...but that look in the last panel - priceless ^_^

Awww thank you Mjkj! I totally did X3 <3 *hug*

Seia didn't smash it, at least, not literally XDDD he did avoid its attack though~!

And yep, you are quite accurate in your assessment of remaining summons, sir ;)

Ophelia's a little surprised Lex's time's already up... maybe she isn't used to summoning 5 summons at a time?

Hm, Ophelia doesn't seem particularly concerned. Does summoning not take all that much... mana? Spirit? Anyway, what I mean is, is Lex a small enough summon that it getting owned is not that big a deal?

especially that last panel she looks slightly panicked, I think its more of a , she didn't expect him kill it so easily.

Awww, don't worry, Lex didn't die! He just went back home XD
rufiangel 2nd Jul 2015, 9:39 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Mmhmm. Ophelia's not freaking out... yet? XD

Summoning takes mana proportionate to the summon's level of skill/power and the duration of time it can stay out, and so on :)

Lex is a pretty strong summon but she probably only set her disc to summon him for a short amount of time - just enough to have him blast that one shot really powerfully XD;

And miss.

Blast that one shot and miss, obviously.

Yeah, she might want to work on the settings on Lex's disc... :P

That's pretty much what it is, I bet they did all the plays and performances in the Lethian Guild without the need for a stage, they just iced it all the way ;D

And I know, it's SO BRIGHT >___> I did not realise it was this bright until I saw it on my phone! My bad, I was rushing this page too much and I think I messed up a bit on the filters. I'ma try to fix it and reupload a better page later XD (but yes, sunglasses would be good)

I did have fun outta town! :D Now I'm back home X3 <3 thankies, seamuffin <3

was lex the one keeping the barrier up then?
rufiangel 2nd Jul 2015, 9:41 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Nah, Lex just vomited something like a laser before he went XD

The barrier is Silyk's ability :) (the one that looks like a butterfly/moth~)

Oooh, that'd explain Madou a lot too XDD

Lukkai
He's probably drunk so much, his body is by now producing that stuff on its own to some amount.

Imagining multiple Madou-types in one room is scary... :'D

Please don't abuse mage dope potions people

Are the spells and summons verbally spoken like in anime, or is it more like a thought? If it has to be pronounced aloud, you can just freeze the summoner's mouth and be done with it.

Of course, now he has to do more, because he waited for her to get all the monsters out...
rufiangel 2nd Jul 2015, 10:00 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
In Archaiea, the summoning 'incantation' is inlaid within the discs so all you have to do is invoke the correct disc. A verbal cue may not strictly be necessary~ though I think you can 'mute' summoners the same as muting mages with an anti-mana seal.

Sometimes, when things are turn-based, you can't help it! XD;

Hehehe...did someone underestimate Mr. Untouchable? You just KEEP underestimatin him, Missy!!!

(you're so good at making this feel like I'm watching a fight sequence on a TV show or something <3)

rufiangel
Ehehehe, she might've thought she could get him with Lex at least a little bit, yep XDD

He seems nonplussed. I don't think he sees the critters as a real threat.
rufiangel 2nd Jul 2015, 10:03 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
He does seem rather calm~ either he views them as lame threats, or maybe he's just that confident... ;)
Lukkai 3rd Jul 2015, 8:09 AM edit delete reply
Lukkai
To me it seems more as if he has a plan and decided it's not worth fretting over anything. Instead concentrating on doing what has to be done.
