Hey guys, happy Thursday! :D

This page wraps up this scene, and we have one more 'cutscene' left before the dawn brightens upon a new day.

As a side-note, I just really wanted to shout out to this:


RPG World was my favourite webcomic way way back, and it always broke my heart to not be able to find the old archives or know what happened at the end. Ian Jones-Quartey always said if someone else wanted to pick up where he left off, they could... and so a pretty awesome writer-artist duo have! They've really stayed true to the series and you can really tell a lot of love has gone into every detail, from the writing, to the art, to the website design. If you liked RPG World before or you're new to it, CLICK DAT LINK ABOVE, I promise it's amazing beyond amazing <333

Okay enough fawning on my end XD have a great Thursday, hopefully catch you on Friday (or over the weekend) for Friday Flare!

Ish a sketchy doodle~

Have a great weekend, and catch you guys on Monday! <3

So I'm guessing Cain is either trying to be a convincing lair, or he somehow really doesn't know he is a Silver Mage, but obviously Madou thinks something is clearly up.

Geez, that look Madou gives him, too. *shiver*

Me thinks he's going to use that information for something down the line.

Interesting thoughts, MST3K! >3<

What Madou says and what he's really thinking may not align, this is true :'D

Oh, so he really is a silver mage... O_O XP

@alt text: you forgot the ace of stars... ;-P

rufiangel 8th Aug 2016, 3:19 PM edit delete reply
Is he? XD;
mjkj 8th Aug 2016, 6:09 PM edit delete reply
Ok, maybe he is just a silvery mage - or maybe a platinum mage... =P ;)

Madou you creepy.

I feel like I don't know you at all /(;_;)\
rufiangel 8th Aug 2016, 3:20 PM edit delete reply
Aww Azure-rin, don't be sad, no one seems to really get him XD it's probably for the best ;D
Lamelle 4th Aug 2016, 6:50 PM edit delete reply
Gah I love Madou so much O.O he's so awesome and I never know what he's planning xD That gaze tho >.> ominous xD
rufiangel 8th Aug 2016, 3:21 PM edit delete reply
Aww Lamelle, I'm glad you like Madou even when he's being so weird and ominous XDD <3

This little scene may have raised more questions than answered any, sorry XD;;; <3

Maybe he knows, but with Kylie confiding in him that her mom was a Silver Mage that was killed by another Silver Mage who wanted to know a specific spell and caused Kylie great mental trauma. I suspect Cain knows of who that Silver Mage may be as well. Possibility even Cain's brother, or his magey helper whom we already have met.
rufiangel 8th Aug 2016, 3:23 PM edit delete reply
Actually, Kylie has not confided in anyone yet about her mother being a Silver Mage. XD;

Cain. Yer a terrible liar.
rufiangel 8th Aug 2016, 3:24 PM edit delete reply
Aw, is he lying, though? XD
MizuNoRyuu 8th Aug 2016, 9:42 PM edit delete reply
*Puts on artist glasses*

Cain's upward painful stare at the sky means either of two things. "Oh god he's onto me." or "Oh god what if he's right?!"

*Takes off artist glasses. Realizes I can't see. Puts them back on.* I think it's the former.

Cain has that fake smile again.. long time I haven't seen that one.
rufiangel 8th Aug 2016, 3:24 PM edit delete reply
Now that you mention it, sis... it really has been a while! O_O I didn't realise, lol. Poor Cain.

Re: Alt-text: Looks like Cain got the Ace of Clubs upside his head...
rufiangel 8th Aug 2016, 3:24 PM edit delete reply
Aww, he looks remarkably intact for such a whack XD
Kat 5th Aug 2016, 3:54 AM edit delete reply
Hmmm how does one know that type of things, I wonder?
Aaaa it's been a very long time since we've seen Cain's "fake smile"...and that face in the last's so loaded with meaning I can't interpret it x'D :S
rufiangel 8th Aug 2016, 3:26 PM edit delete reply
Abel did say it just came naturally to him XD;

That look will make a lot more sense later on, I promise <3 ;D
Crestlinger 5th Aug 2016, 5:38 AM edit delete reply
Bargaining chip with Abel? Possible.

W-whew.... D:
That fifth panel... Gosh. That expression is chilling!
But Madou is still the best~~

(Awww gosh, I looooved RPG world! I saw the fan continuation on here, but didn't get to reading it, yet. It's pretty awesome there's -finally- a place that has the archive, too!)
rufiangel 8th Aug 2016, 3:28 PM edit delete reply
Aww seamuffin XDD I'm glad you still like him even when he's being all chilling and stuff XDD (is it because he's chilling)

(Yep!! :D I've been catching up over the past few days, still remember how I felt the first time I read it and feel all those happy nostalgic feels <33 X3)

Cain with them feels... Hmm I have just the thing. I'll be back with said thing tomorrow. X)

What thing were you thinking of, D? XD;;
CiciEnixa 6th Aug 2016, 10:50 AM edit delete reply
Ace of spades, diamonds, hearts... now we just need a club. *bonks Madou with a literal club* First of all how dare you, Madou? Second of all how DARE you, Madou?! Poor Cain, bringing out the fake smiles...

I don't suppose I can hope for happy fun times in the last cutscene? XD
rufiangel 8th Aug 2016, 3:30 PM edit delete reply
I was just asking for this joke, wasn't I XDDD

To be fair, if Madou doesn't dig this deep then this plot will remain utterly unfathomable for quite a while yet :'DDD yes he is my plotdigger LOL (also Madou doesn't care about Cain's feelings HAHAHA jk... maybe)

And of course you can hope for happy fun times! XD If by happy fun times you mean loud and hyperventilating noises anyway XD
Spelledeg 6th Aug 2016, 11:26 AM edit delete reply
Oh mannn, that is chilling. Cain knows more than he's letting on, but I think Madou knows more.

Maybe he's a silver mage without the chains, or is capable of that level without them?

But danggg. Mads, u dig too deep.
rufiangel 8th Aug 2016, 3:31 PM edit delete reply
Fufufu ;D maybe maybe, Spelluru~~

Madou has no respect for boundaries XD

Aw, Madou, you're breaking Cain. Dang, dawg, innaprops.

Madou can be Inaprropriate Incarnate. XD


I've been having fun poring through the archives again, I still remember following it extremely diligently back in the day <3 XD
Outlaw 8th Aug 2016, 7:05 AM edit delete reply
Holy snap crackers that 5th panel...!
Madou, man, what are you doing?! Why are you such a confusing character?!

Poor Cain... Don't let him get to you, dude. You're an awesome dude and I for one love ya.

Excellent updates, my friend. Can't wait for the update tomorrow!!
rufiangel 8th Aug 2016, 3:33 PM edit delete reply
Madou is just a confuddling man XD

And aww Outlaw, I'm glad you support Cain! ;3;* he certainly could use it <33 XD

Thanks so much Outlaw for always being so awesome and sweet with your comments, it really encourages me to keep at it!! ;3;* <333
