Happy Monday!

Wow, today's strip took a while. I hope it looks alright!

The Internet was down for me today so this strip didn't go up nearly as early as I wanted it to (usually I upload on noontime on Mondays to make up for the weekend wait). Good news is that the Internet is back (YAY) so here we go!

Who is that ghost?, obviously you changed Lindt chocolate for Toblerone... Whyissat? (...and here I was (at first - until I read the text) wondering about the amount supporter 5 sent you to get the amount from 3 boxes to 20...)

rufiangel 26th Jan 2015, 10:50 PM edit delete reply
XDDD Sorry for the confusion! I just thought I'd switch it up a bit. If I do get more support, I will change the chocolate currency. :) (All depends on what I feel like that day XD)

Yeah, all is good - I survived... :D

I now know, so I will look at the text first ;)


PS: I agree with alt text - he was about to reveal the epic mystery and ghost thingy here interrupted - now we might never know what he was about to say...

I wanna say "called it!" but I didn't actually comment on it.

Dang my lurkerness.

Awww, I'll still let you say it. *gracious smile*

Woahcreepy. That eyeball in the chest is seriously yikes.
rufiangel 26th Jan 2015, 10:52 PM edit delete reply
Sarethhhh :D

Haha, that was the core of the mob design ;D (it was a coin toss between a nice big eye or a nice big mouth)

As it is undead, go go Cain heal spam.
rufiangel 26th Jan 2015, 10:54 PM edit delete reply
Hehehe, I can totally see why you thought so! :)

Unfortunately this mob is not an undead mob. I know, it's confusing. I hated it when I was on RO and tried healing random mobs that so LOOKED like it should be undead but it wasn't (so all I did was actually heal them lol). XD;;
Seabiscuit 26th Jan 2015, 11:06 PM edit delete reply
Holy BALLS that thing is CREEPY! But very awesome. Those FINGERS! That eye!

I just love Cains freaked out expression in the second panel.:D
Also Michael is damn badass!


Oh my god that game was senseless sometimes
rufiangel 27th Jan 2015, 2:00 AM edit delete reply
Ahahaha yayyy! XD I'm glad the mob comes across that way!! (Was a wee bit worried I'd made it too 'bizarre' if you know what I mean. XD)

Cain is totally freaking out, yes. XD;;; He would have panicked more ('HEAL MYSELF A ZILLION TIMES FOR NO REASON' mode) but when he has party members to ground him, he manages to avoid that. XD;;; And yay for Mike getting a chance to do his tanking thing properly :D <333

Re: RO, I KNOW RIGHT >__> I played this game a lot (and even now, every now and then, will boot it up)... I think the general world/atmosphere/2D-cuteness will always have a special place in my heart, but omigosh, yes. XD;;;
Allzephyr 26th Jan 2015, 11:23 PM edit delete reply
So this thing has nothing in its sockets, but a giant eyeball in its chest. Clearly they are up against a moron. And how rude of it to interrupt story time. Hmph.
rufiangel 27th Jan 2015, 2:13 AM edit delete reply
XD Yeah, this thing must have a really low INT stat! ... *koff*

If I'd drawn it more close-up, you'd be able to see that there is something inside that part that looks like a head. The bit that seems like a face (with the eye sockets and mouth) is more like a husk, with something dark stuffed within and sewn up so it can't escape. You can see whatever this dark stuff is bleeding out of the sewn mouth and eye sockets when Kylie cuts the eye core in the last panel of this strip.

And now you know. XD;

WOO! Now THAT is a quick and efficient fight right there :D TIME FOR REJOICING, CAIN, FOR YE HAVE DONE WELL!

rufiangel 27th Jan 2015, 2:15 AM edit delete reply

*hugs the little bouncing rejoicing Cain tightly*

I really want to do something with this adorable thing but I don't know what >_> mount it on my wall, yes, but what else can I do? Hum. Please let me do something with this Cici, it's too cute not to share. XD;;;

(Thankyew for making this wonderful little thing ;w;)

XD He's all yours ;D

>.> I already Tweeted him btw... nyahaha

I must now brainstorm ways to utilise this little bouncing Cain to take over the world

WHAT?! I reached the end and have to wait like everyone else?! Nuuuuuuuuuuuuuu! QAQ

This comic is great so far though! It pulled me along all the way through in one afternoon! XD I just couldn't stop! I am so inspired to draw fan art right now, omgyouhavenoidea! <3
rufiangel 27th Jan 2015, 3:14 AM edit delete reply
Awww geez Alicia, I can't believe you caught up in one shot like that! XD;; (Though when Saari-nii said he did too, I realised that probably the archive just... asks to be binged... XD;;; oops.)

Thanks so much for your kind words and encouragement, Alicia!! ;w;* I really really appreciate it! Also, so excited and yet so sorry about the fanart thing XDDD;;; <333 butyouknowi'llneversayno>.>

*hugs* <333 Thank you for reading!! It's an honour!

EGADS what the heck is that thing?? Lololol I think I'm with Cain on this one XD

Man its a good thing you update three times a week! Otherwise I might go crazy >__>
I love and admire how you can do so many pages in one week and they all look so consistent and fabulous. Teach me your waaays T^T XDD
rufiangel 27th Jan 2015, 11:46 AM edit delete reply
XD Cain has a legit reaction to this mob, unlike his reaction to the baby batmole from chapter one!

Awww I'm glad I can update thrice a week too! :) Just because I am an impatient person XD;;

Thank you for saying they are consistent, you are too kind XD <333 uhmm... I think if you are as lazy as I am and shade in only one colour on multiply then ... it does cut down on production time quite a bit XDD
Lukkai 27th Jan 2015, 9:10 AM edit delete reply
Dang, that thing is spooky!

And I... I think that's the first time I noticed Nemi's knee pad.

There are four different flavours of Toblerone in bars around here, by the way. Also I see we completely agree on Lindor chocolate balls. Relatively expensive they are. But oh so tasty!

I'll admit, Switzerland is a good home country for someone who likes chocolate. (^_^)
rufiangel 27th Jan 2015, 11:49 AM edit delete reply
Hahaha, no worries; Nemi started wearing them in chapter four, and only when she was in battle mode, too. She took them off in the cave at the start of chapter five and put them back on again the next day.

We have milk, white, dark and... almond, I think? in HK for the flavours of Toblerone. :) (Yellow, white, black and blue packages, anyway!) It's a popular bar around here! <3

Dangit, whenever I visit Switzerland I'll be hunting down choco factories and trying to eat/learn all their secrets. <3
mjkj 27th Jan 2015, 8:11 PM edit delete reply
Yeah, Switzerland has many good chocolates - even the simple ones in supermarkets are better than most here...

rufiangel 27th Jan 2015, 11:25 PM edit delete reply
Oh really! Where are you at, mjkj? :)

(And pleasu check your CF PMs if you can, thankyew ;w;)
mjkj 28th Jan 2015, 5:42 PM edit delete reply
I am from Germany :)

Lukkai 28th Jan 2015, 10:21 AM edit delete reply
Same Toblerone flavours we got then.

And should you ever plan a visit to Switzerland, drop a line! I can surely give you some tipps on both good chocolate and places worth a visit in general.
And lucky me we've got a very good confectioner in town. Their chocolate is on the expensive side. But it's also absolutely awesome!

And I'll admit that my knowledge pretty much comes down to watching Anthony Bourdain and similar shows, but I hear HK is no shabby at all culinary-wise. So you've got a number of points going for your place as well, don't you. ;)
Lukkai 28th Jan 2015, 10:23 AM edit delete reply
Oh, and I couldn't resist. And advert for one of our supermarket chocolates. (Frey is the chocolate company of the Migros supermarket chain. One of the two market leaders in Switzerland.)
mjkj 28th Jan 2015, 5:41 PM edit delete reply
*hmmmmmm* Frey *dreams*

It is a pity they do not sell it here...

It's battle time! Cast your buff spells and watch heads fly!

Hehehe, yep! :D Well, this particular mob went down quick, but... XD; yes, it's battle time next page for a li'l bit!

Hum... translucent but not intangible. Lol, why do I think there is more where that came from.
rufiangel 27th Jan 2015, 11:24 PM edit delete reply
XD That's... a pretty good guess! XD;;

(Btw, Headgamer... >_> do you not check CF PMs?)
