Happy... Friday, guys! XD;;; Sorry, it took a while to get this one done. I hope you guys enjoy it!

I'm behind on comments again, sorry guys -v- there's been a lot going on this week. I'm going to be on a retreat for most of my weekend starting Friday night, so I may not be able to do Monday's page on time, either. I'll provide a better estimate and update on when the page will be up later this weekend~

I feel like I'm forgetting something but I'm frazzled and sleepy so maybe I'll recall it next time XD;; sorry!

Thanks so much for reading, and catch you guys again soon!

So sorry guys, I accidentally bruised my drawing hand so I'm taking it easy on the drawing front for a couple of days :') I'll update on Thursday! Apologies for missing another Monday update :<

Another update to say I'm super sorry, but no update today, either. My hand has been kind of funky all week. -_-;; It's not exactly so bad I can't draw, but it's just... weeeeird. I don't know how else to explain it. (As a side-note it's actually both of my hands that are being weird lol) It's getting better, no worries there, but just not getting 100% better just yet.

I'll attempt to take until the end of this week to slowly work on the update so that by the time the updates start again next week, there'll be no delay like this! I apologise for taking this sudden break when we're in the midst of action -___- terribad timing!

Different colours to signify a different feel, I guess you could say? XD;

Sooooo, the defender is a Lethian paladin who happens to know Kylie's moves?? what are you not telling meeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Also, I just noticed Gareth is almost as cold as Kylie......and she *knows* something about the puppy that I'm sure will wreack havoc in a page or two

I probably wouldn't call him a paladin, though it's certainly got some similarities, fufu. As for knowing 'Kylie's moves', I guess that's something that's not as clear as I would like! :P

Kylie is a Lethian Knight, but if you want to look at her 'base class', she is a 'Knight'. Moves like 'Ten Thousand Needles', 'Trinity Slash', 'Heaven's Wrath' and 'Merciless Moon' are all Knight-class abilities that are not specific to Lethian Knights, let alone Lethiaces or persons. This is why Kylie can still use these moves even without her Lethiace being active, because these use Kinetic Energy. Every move Kylie knows, Seia can do as well. Sir Bradley also knows some of the moves that Kylie and Seia know, as he also has the same Knight-class base.

It should be noted that each knight-class ability takes advantage of certain stat strengths; Ten Thousand Needles is accuracy-based, while Merciless Moon is more strength-based, for example. Therefore different knights will pick up different techniques based on their personal strengths and focuses in their training.

I hope that explains some of it XD

As for Gareth, he's *extremely* chill, let's put it that way XDD

Now imagine if JRPGs had that much blood in them back in the 8-bit and 16-bit eras. LOL

rufiangel
I think those probably had more blood in it than the early 3D JRPGs, now that you mention it >___> weirdly enough...

Little mercy shown for big scary monster :P

I sometimes surprise myself with the amount of gushing blood in this comic :'D

I wonder if it has some kind of regeneration ability instead of high defense?

As big as it is, I suspect you're onto something there. In addition to being somewhat separated from its summoner, which would normally probably give it some help, possibly with healing, or entoughening or something. I suspect its HP is through the roof, though.
rufiangel 21st Nov 2017, 2:18 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
You are correct that it has a regenerative ability that compensates for a relatively low defense stat. -v-*)/

Though it *does* have tough hide - we just have lots of high-level characters attacking it, too XD

Oooo! Nice opening salvo; I wonder what kind of results they will get! ;) A couple of Merciless Moon slingers is bound to help!

Merciless Moon slinger... sounds like a drink XD

With a name containing the word 'merciless' though I'd be scared of its contents! :'D lol

And THIS is where things going too well means I'm expecting it to have some special effect with the wounds. Like maybe forming mini-monsters or something.

Ah well, it's still just a puppy. *Scritches puppy doggo's chin.*
rufiangel 21st Nov 2017, 2:22 PM edit delete reply
rufiangel
If mini fluffy puppies came bursting out of its wounds, I'd have to say that'd be a preeeeetty sufficient distraction and certainly nobody would be able to attack those in good conscience... XD dangit, that's pretty effective actually!

They mostly are on the front line! Especially the case when you don't got any green mages on your side in a battle where elemental black magic is useless XD

Stay Tuned for the next episode of "How the Behemoth Falls"

This week's Lethian attack is brought to you IN STEREO, thanks in part to generous donations from the world guild, and from viewers like you who make such quality programming possible...

And then Cain heals the behemoth. Whoops! 8-o ;-)

Good luck with your retreat. If it devolves into a Lord of the Flies situation try not to be the one in the cooking pot. ;-)

He'd be sent off the field if he did that, for sure XD

I somehow managed to avoid being in the cooking pot! Phew :P thanks KAM!

There's a little bit of that, too, now that you mention it... but it's not a huge difference, it just means the regen *could* be even faster? XD;
