Happy Wednesday! :D And we're gonna get right back into Seia and Ophelia's face-off~

Ophelia is a green mage, which in the world of Archaiea means... she's a summoner! Summoners work in Archaiea in a very specific way, which we'll find out throughout this chapter. :) I hope you guys find it interesting and fun!

In other news: oh my gosh, a lot of people have been getting their books for The Lethian this week and that's been getting me all in a tizzy XD I really want to update the webcomic side of things for The Lethian, but I think I want to prioritise SF for a bit and see if I can clear out some of the to-do things for SF first before I get into that.

If you guys haven't seen it already, there is a freely downloadable art book available for The Lethian on the website. It has all kinds of awesome art compiled from other artists on Comic Fury (you guys are bound to find familiar styles and names from the book if you've been around CF long enough!) so please check it out if you haven't yet! <3 X3

Okay, enough rambling from me. See ya guys on Friday! :D

What is Seia's best? Does he have more equipment when he's at his best, or is he referring to the detrimental environment around him?
rufiangel 25th Jun 2015, 1:14 PM edit delete reply
Yep, Seia is referring to his state of equipment. XD; You'll notice in some flashback shots, Seia wears a blue-gold coat. That coat is significantly better in terms of magical protection than the casual vest-and-whiteshirt ensemble he has on now. But he didn't know he'd get attacked in Crystal Sands by anyone worthy of noting... XP

I was thinking we weren't going to see this fight, only have it implied. Should be interesting to see how this all goes.

A summoner, eh? Now I think of Rydia from Final Fantasy IV when she flipped out and summoned a Titan that accidentally destroyed her whole town. O_o
rufiangel 25th Jun 2015, 1:17 PM edit delete reply
Hahaha, yes, I think some readers did expect me to skip the details XD surprise! Lolol

Good thing there doesn't seem to be anything but more desert around these two... XD;;

My money is on Seia, because cici would kill you if anything happened to him.
rufiangel 25th Jun 2015, 1:18 PM edit delete reply
By "you", I assume you are addressing Ophelia ^0^ Cici-muffin wouldn't chop my legs off, right?... XD

*Puts (almost) all his monies on O for the win*

*Places some on the side on Seia to break even just in case. X)*

I have the battle music from Final Fantasy 10 in my head, but this lady is no Yuna...
rufiangel 25th Jun 2015, 1:20 PM edit delete reply
Oooh XD but yes, Ophelia is certainly no Yuna. But there may be one or two similarities... Maybe. We'll see XD

The Chessmaster
So... is the title of Silver Mage for Abel also because of his magical specialization? I'm guessing that he's probably either using a unique or almost-unique branch of magic, or good at them all to an extent nobody else is.
rufiangel 25th Jun 2015, 1:21 PM edit delete reply
Ehehehe, you're mostly correct! :D

We'll find out more about what exactly a Silver Mage is in this chapter :D

LOLOL Saari-nii :'''D

Poor Ophelia... Her face melted off in the face of sheer awesomeness (or terribad puns XDDD)
Crestlinger 25th Jun 2015, 4:55 AM edit delete reply
How to deal with a mage? Cast something like Beserk to make them only attack and you win if you have a summon that grants armour or takes damage on your behalf. Got through 80% of Final Fantasy 5 with that combo.
rufiangel 25th Jun 2015, 1:25 PM edit delete reply
Ahahahaha I ran with that combo loads, too! XD and the invisible-doom combo in FF6 sometimes because I'm cheap.

Berserk isn't a spell in Archaeia though, boo :<
Lukkai 25th Jun 2015, 9:50 AM edit delete reply
"Shoot the mage first!" ;)

Yeah, I'm a Shadowrun veteran. Why you asking?
rufiangel 25th Jun 2015, 1:27 PM edit delete reply
XDDD this tactic is what I employ in Dragon Age games - seriously, those buggers need to be cleared out asap for smoother sailing! :P (note: I always play mages in DA... XD)
Lukkai 28th Jun 2015, 9:49 PM edit delete reply
Same thing goes for Skyrim, really. Or ES Online, from what I've seen of it.

*places 50 cacao juice on Seia*

Ooooh, summoner! Hm... so by unique summons, does this mean summoning spells that Ophelia herself created, or is it like similar to Fairy Tail where summons are contracted to you so they are more or less exclusive to you (at least until the contract ends or says otherwise)?
rufiangel 25th Jun 2015, 1:34 PM edit delete reply
50 cacao juice, noted...! XD

(weren't you convinced I was gonna pulverise Seia? XD lolol)

Closer to the latter~~~ :) Exclusive contracts, pretty much! Hopefully it'll become more clear how these things work throughout this chapter! X3
Headgamer 25th Jun 2015, 8:29 PM edit delete reply
:o Green Mage.

I'm going to enjoy this. Here's to hopeing they both live (though I doubt there will be any convenient LCSs to break it up this time).
rufiangel 26th Jun 2015, 5:29 PM edit delete reply
Yay! :D I hope you do find it fun! And yes, I suppose Seia's a lot more stable than poor Kylie was... XD;;;
Seabiscuit 26th Jun 2015, 7:13 AM edit delete reply
Total and complete faith in Seia! Ohh, but a summoner!? Can't wait to see the details~

Heee, grats again on the book! I can't wait to get to reading it~ :D
rufiangel 26th Jun 2015, 5:30 PM edit delete reply
X3 Happy you have such faith in Seia, seamuffin!! <3 And yep, summoning magic in Archaeia is a thing! Hopefully people will find it an interesting thing XD

And thank you so much seamuffin! ;w;* <3 I really hope you enjoy it! Take care and rest up this weekend, ya hear? *hug*

I think his seal says the same thing as Kylie's. Still not sure what it says (too many unfamiliar symbols).
