Here we go, Friday's update is up now~

By the way, do you guys like tabletop gaming or general role-playing? Some awesome readers have started up an RP based in the world of Archaiea (and SF) in the forums, which you can check out and join here~ I believe they've just started character creation. Feel free to join the forums and just hang out in general, because these people rock and they are really really fun :D <3

(There is a closed RP I have been running as well, but it's on hiatus due to all the craziness IRL.)

Next Monday's update will most likely be late, because for one thing, it's a double-page, and for another, it's #400 so I will be attempting... something, and for a third, that's the day I'm flying back to Hong Kong (homeward!) so ... yeah, it's all a bit hectic so I just ask for your continued patience with my inconsistent updates as of late. ;_;* *bows low*

I hope you guys have a fantastic weekend~ See you guys next week!

Aww, this is actually kinda hard to see. Poor Nemi...

But, wooo~ Glad to hear you're going home soon! You get to open your x-mas gift now. XD

(Totally not a severed horse head) :3

Awww D~! That Pikachu... XDD

All of the characters have 'skeletons' of sorts in the closet, but I'd say out of the group, Nemi's isn't so bad. You'll see what I mean once it gets explained in-comic. XP

And I can't wait to open up the box to find the not-a-severed-horse-head <333 ;3;*

That's right! The head is still attached!

Hey. Hey Jinn. What if you can actually talk to Michael right now but he's ignoring you because you were mean to poor little Nemi? (I know it's probably not the case but ya know :,D) I hope Nemi's siblings really can fend for themselves. If the Danrir really are as nasty as she's suggesting...

*eagerly awaits Rufi's return with magical banners and mountains of choco*

Yes everyone, please do join the RP, especially if you want to explore some more of the Serpamia Flare universe <3 Even if you've never RP-ed before, Robert and everyone do a lovely job guiding you through the adventure, so come join us!

Ehehehe, fun to see the speculations on how Mike is taking the situation so far XD

And you've seen what Nemi's like. XD;; I'm sure her siblings are capable enough if push comes to shove. I think. I hope. >_>

*happily dreams of mountains of choco and smexy-marshmallow-Dust-banners*

(and yay for plugs XD <3)

Mike saved your silly kitty ass Nemi in a very protective way that Ren could only dream of! Don't believe Jinn with what Mike feels <x_x>

Jinn needs some serious water spraying.
rufiangel 23rd Nov 2015, 10:45 AM edit delete reply
LOLOL Saari-nii XDDD Poor Ren, he gets burnt even when he's not around :'DD

The annoying thing for Nemi is that even if she beats Jinn up, it's Michael's body she's beating up so XD
Jarvi 23rd Nov 2015, 5:37 PM edit delete reply
Hahah I tend to be a bully towards characters, I knoow ^^' But on the other hand, if you finally decide to give Ren some comfort in Abel's (even if I hate that guy) or anyone else's arms, I'll be the first to support that ;D

And as for Nemi... no beating Michaels body! She needs to learn the most effective skill for such situations - "ignore asshole" x)

Wow Jinn rude. Poor Nemi......

I'm totally interested in an RP but idk if I have the time for it what with holiday craziness and all =_=;
Prayformercy 22nd Nov 2015, 7:09 PM edit delete reply
It generally comes down to posting your actions in a small - medium writeup as well as rolls, then our DM (Robert) comes in with his actions in reply, then when you get a chance post yours.. etc
So long as you can check in and post something every few days odds are youd be ok if you were at all interested in joining :D

You can take a look at the other adventures in the forums to see what i mean.

Oh wow thanks ^u^ It's been so long since I've RP'd at all I don't remember how to do it lmao. I'll look these over later and see if I can spare enough time to join in.
Prayformercy 23rd Nov 2015, 7:16 AM edit delete reply
np, if you have any other questions about anything just post somewhere there or feel free to send me a pm. Hope to see you around on there :D
rufiangel 23rd Nov 2015, 10:46 AM edit delete reply
Yeah, Jinn - from Chapter 1 - has shown he isn't afraid to say what he's thinking out loud. XD;;

And yeah, re: RP - feel free to do it at your leisure! :D No pressure~~

Awwww, poor Nemi... *huggu*

I hope he will be civil this time...

...wait, who is Fel???

PS: have a good trip home. *hugs*

CiciEnixa 21st Nov 2015, 9:28 PM edit delete reply
Fel is one of the Kijin settlements, if I remember correctly from the RP. What I can't recall for sure is if "Fel and Nines" are both Kijin communities or if it's the warring Kijin and Danririn.
mjkj 21st Nov 2015, 10:09 PM edit delete reply
Thank you for the clarification. I was thinking she had left a (boy)friend back home (with name Fel)... ^_^'

rufiangel 23rd Nov 2015, 10:55 AM edit delete reply
Awww, thank you Mjkj :D <3 I will endeavour to do so!

I recognise (and totally understand) that because it's been ages since the references to Fel, no one will remember what/who/where it is. XD;;; Thanks, Cici-muffin, for responding and filling in that blank!

For your further reference, when Michael mentions the 'main conflict' here he is referring to the territorial disputes between the Kijin and the Danrir that Kylie and Cain mention here. The first reference to what the main conflict zones are called is on this page is where Ren talks about truce talks between Fel and Nines and on this page, Nemi states that in Fel, all kinds of injustice happen every day. In other words, Fel is Kijin territory, while Nines is Danrir territory, and the two continue to war against each other for more.

From inference, you might be able to tell that Michael and Jinn are not from Nines, but Nemi is from Fel.

I know all these references are very difficult to recall and string together coherently when I only release so many pages at a time, so I thank you in advance for your patience XP

Nemi, Niko, Nero & Naru.

Sounds like a law firm. ;-)
rufiangel 23rd Nov 2015, 10:56 AM edit delete reply
Lolol, I thought law firm names were just two names XD

Like, Nemi & Niko. Or Nero & Neru. XD
KAM 23rd Nov 2015, 9:43 PM edit delete reply
Depends on the law firm and how many partners they have, I believe. At least in the USA.
TheMentalist 24th Nov 2015, 5:19 AM edit delete reply
I've seen a law firm of: Bartlet, Johnson, Johnson, Johnson, Smith, Smith, and West.

It's all about how many partners, and how they relate to each other. Kinda crazy to have that many people in one firm at equal level, but whatever.
Allzephyr 22nd Nov 2015, 12:09 AM edit delete reply
A... an SF rpg? I'm actually bordering on giddy right now. Sadly, I've already got other engagements, such as preventing my party members from looting/punching/annoying the general population of our existing game, including themselves.

Which reminds me: Jinn you great big d***head, turn your ugly, racist face away, get it out of Mike's head, and shove it up your arse. No one wants to talk to you.

Pardon my Irish, and please, don't worry yourself too much about the updates.
Prayformercy 22nd Nov 2015, 7:13 PM edit delete reply
its a very small time commitment if you were at all interested :D we basically make posts with our actions and rolls on the SF Forums whenever we are able to throughout the week.

Its nothing like normal Rps/DND adventures where you sit down with the group for hours at a time. As a result things can possibly move rather slowly, but its nice when you are busy with school or other things to just log in, post your rolls/actions and move on with your day!

Can follow rufis link and take a look at the other adventures weve finished / are in progress!
or these links here :D

Oooh, it's good to know you're having fun RP-ing already! XD <3 But yeah, like mercy says, if you do feel like a not-so-heavy commitment, the SF forums are highly accommodating XD;; (they've been so kind to me :'D)

And ooof, Jinn... you've got your work cut out for you, if you want to have any readers care a jot about you XD (if ever!)

And thank you so for your continued patience and understanding, Allzephyr ;3;* I really appreciate it!
Allzephyr 24th Nov 2015, 1:27 PM edit delete reply
Hm, put like that I might have to look into it. T'would be a pity to miss out on the fun.
TheMentalist 24th Nov 2015, 5:20 AM edit delete reply
Yeah, our RP is rather casual. Glad you like the idea!

It's more like you make a post or two every day or two type of deal, with a few actions (or if everyone is going crazy and has free time, it can move faster.) Usually just a handful of posts from each every week though.

Awww man, I feel so bad for her.

Ehhhh XD yeah, she won't be taking any more insults lying down, now that she's had some time to think!

And oh wow! Page 400 is next!? :O Can't wait to see what you have planned! Don't stress yourself to much! We can wait! Because those who wait for something good, does not wait in vain

Ahahahaha yesh XD there maaay be a pattern there ;D

And thank you Lamelle! <3 Hopefully you guys will find it fun :D (and if you don't... I'm sowee in advance... :'DDD)

Man, poor Nemi...just can't catch a break with Jinn possessed Michael.

And page 400 coming!? Awesome! The wait will be well rewarded.
rufiangel 23rd Nov 2015, 11:02 AM edit delete reply
Yeah, Jinn doesn't seem to be keen on giving her a break >_>

And thank you MST3K! >w<*)/ I do hope you guys enjoy the next update :D <3

The Chessmaster
Wait a second... he can't talk to Mike, but he said all that stuff about how Mike was feeling? So either he just got some vibe about it from being in Mike's body and went on the whole rant about it without Mike's permission or even knowledge, or he just said it without even knowing if it was true. Either way, I can't see Mike being too happy about this if he ever finds out.
Lukkai 23rd Nov 2015, 3:50 AM edit delete reply
Well, Nemi for one does not really seem to believe that Mike is actually feeling the way Jinn described.
rufiangel 23rd Nov 2015, 11:05 AM edit delete reply
Yeah, Jinn doesn't seem to be able to communicate with Mike. So what *was* that all about? Hmmm... ;P

Maaaybe ;D if I make it too easy for them, though... *insert ebil cackles here*

And little girl is totally priority in terms of time consumption, I understand <3 Remember, you gotta get her to make you breakfast and teach her how to flat and shade your comics the moment she learns to hold a pencil, aiite? ;)

Really looking forward to the double page update!
