Happy Wednesday, dear readers! :) I hope you guys are having an enjoyable middle-of-the-week so far!

With this page, our brief glimpse into how the other side is faring draws to a close, and we'll be back with our regular party members next update. I hope you found it interesting enough!

Just a reminder: there are three days left to enter the fun little contest Headgamer started in the forums!

Enter your rescripts here and please: have fun XD <3

As a side-note, if you guys read The Lethian but haven't left a review for it anywhere yet, I'd really appreciate one on Amazon or Goodreads. ;_;* And for those of you who have: thank you so so much!! <3

And with that, Wednesday's a wrap. See you folks on Friday!

Hey guys, so sorry for the late update! It's nearly 1:00am here and I'm knackered so I'm going to bed without finishing the strip. However, I'll be up and early to try and finish it off.

Here's a countdown timer to the next update XD; (I hope it works!) I know timezones can be tricky so hopefully, this helps!



Thanks for your patience, dear readers!

Ahahaha, assuming of course that Abel is indeed up to no good... ;)

I'm wondering what Abel's done to earn such loyalty. Interesting to see things from the other side.

I think for Sho it was basically save him from slavery.

Of course, he basically is a slave to something else now.
rufiangel 11th Sep 2015, 1:11 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Yep! It does seem like Abel has done something to earn their undying loyalty, doesn't it? ;)

I'm happy to know that you found this part interesting! <3 Thanks Matt!

You know, I've been wondering something for awhile now, and I don't think it's ever been asked or told- what does "serpamia flare" mean?

Also, it could just be my imagination, but Ren looks regretful in that second-to-last panel, there...

rufiangel
Gosh, has no one actually asked me this in the comments before? Wow! XD

It's the name of a spell. ;) I believe we might hear mention of it some point before the chapter is out...!

As for Ren, he does seem pretty resigned, doesn't he? Hmm. >3<

Hm... Jumping the Emo bandwagon just a little here, aren't we Ren?

And starry Sho. :D Oh my God.

Dude, I've been trying to get Ren off the emo merry-go-round for ages, he just refuses to get off the dang thing! :'D

And a thought just occured to me:

If it's true that those accessories only break easily if the bond isn't strong.
And yet we know that Ren is quite devoted to Abel.
That has some obvious implications.

Pretty sure that's what's going through Ren's mind at the least right now. And Sho even calls it out.

One sided devotion is an entirely different brand (or level?) of loyalty. Though of course, what appears to be blind loyalty might seem pretty foolish to others... XP

Serving one-sidedly can get a little awkward if the person turns around.

XD I guess Ren and Sho can flank Abel on either side ;D

Ughh. I was hoping his faith was wavering there for a bit.
Man, Abel is just so gross. He doesn't deserve monopoly!

They say Monopoly kills friendships. We can all hope that it can kill blind devotion, loyalty, and stupidity as well, I suppose ;D
rufiangel 11th Sep 2015, 2:16 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Gosh, if Monopoly can do all that, we should all be playing Monopoly with our enemies XD
rufiangel 11th Sep 2015, 1:29 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
XDDD ahahaha seamuffin <3 lolol

It does seem like Ren is determined to follow Abel, eh? >_>

Monopoly is probably not very enjoyable when you're gross :'D ahahahaha

I could see them playing a nice game of "Hungry, Hungry, Hippos" instead. X)

...and was that a twinkle in Sho's eyes? XD

Hahaha XD I'm sure they'd be very competitive ;D

And yes it is lolol XD

Ren is an interesting creature ;)

Two new places to add to the map, or at least a ballpark of where they are.

Ah, I should probably point out whereabouts Aen Luce is next time I update the map, though it might take a while... ;P

Dat eye twinkle killed me XD

Ah, such devotion. Sho, I don't care how nice Abel was to you guys before, PLEASE realize that he isn't doing anyone any good right now. Sho makes a pretty good pep talker for someone who doesn't really talk much, that I'll admit. I just wish he was giving pep talks from the good side...
rufiangel 11th Sep 2015, 2:24 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
XD I'm happy people are enjoying the twinkle in Sho's eye <3 lolol

I'd surmise from Ren's emo statement in the last panel that they might actually already know... ;)

What would the Archaeia version of Monopoly be like?
Go to Dungeon. Go directly to Dungeon do not collect 200 goldras.
Lari Oasis 350 goldras
Would aquafall be one of the options in Chance?
rufiangel 11th Sep 2015, 2:26 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Ahahahaha! Sounds like a great adaptation KAM XD

I'd say that Lari Oasis would probably cost considerably more than that though ahahaha XD;;

I was looking at template of Monopoly https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Monopoly_board_layout and figured Cain's city (which I couldn't remember the name of) would be the most expensive square and Lari would be second.
rufiangel 12th Sep 2015, 10:22 AM edit delete reply
rufiangel
Ooooh, how fun XD

The Holy Capital, huh... yeah, that might be the most expensive. Maybe. XD Pretty good guesses! Lari Oasis is small, but it is very prosperous, that is true. :)

Upset or sulking, he says while Abel looks to be out of his mind. >.< I guess he composes himself when others are in his presence.

Edit: Whaaat? This is the latest page? :O I wanted to read more!

not sure if "upset" is quite the word you're looking for here.
