Happy Thursday, folks! :)

Last shout out for Morgenstern's awesome horror-flavoured anime RP sequel KS, Gratuitous Anime Gimmick:ORDER:


Less than three days left to get in on it, and as of writing this it's super close to getting funded - go tell your friends and make senpai's dream come truuuue :D <333

EDIT[11/19/2017]: Morgenstern's KS successfully funded yesterday and I'm so happy for him! :D <3 There's less than a day left so if you haven't already pledged, do it quick!

Okay that's it from me - I'm actually nursing quite a bit of a cold atm so I'm gonna have an early night. -v-)/ Cheers, thank you for reading! I'll catch you guys next Monday~

Hey guys, sorry for dropping the ball again. This weekend was not a productive one as I had things going on at odd times, so I ended up not getting enough time (or energy) to work on the comic page.

I am considering either uploading quite late tomorrow night, or missing the Monday update and uploading a double-page on Thursday instead. I'll try to do the first one though, because I'd rather do that than make a long wait between updates.

Again, apologies for dropping the ball. I know it's never fun for readers when the webcomic creator misses updates frequently. :< If it's any consolation though, this week marks the last week of a major project at work and starting next week I should have more energy, possibly more time and less stress in general so that's good, right? <3 ;v;*

Anyway, thanks for being the best readers anyone could ask for and always just being so darn patient and understanding. I appreciate you guys so much. <3

And now, to bed. OTL

P.S. I did update Friday Flare last week by the way, but it's a tiny one XD; hopefully still interesting, though?

OKay, sorry guys, no update tonight. If I can't do a double by Thursday I'll still do a single but hopefully I'll do a double. Thanks for understanding. u_u

Sorry folks for constantly delaying the next update. I'm just not feeling it, it is bad, but I think if I chip at it all week I'll get there by the weekend; sorry this is happening!! I hate motivational crises. ;__;

Oh, puppy is having a break-through

*lol* @alt text... =)

Edit: random fact: Regen is german for rain... ;)

Oh, that's a cool bit of trivia. :D So it doesn't regen in Archaiea, it Aquafalls? XD

Thank you Matt <3 I think I'm starting to feel better on the motivational front lately :D I appreciate your support!!

Meanwhile, Cain's thinking, "Well, they can't blame this one on me." ;-)
Gilrandir 17th Nov 2017, 12:19 AM edit delete reply
Depends ... is Gareth on Cain's side? ("Dammit, healer! Can't you do your job? DPS is getting crushed over there!")

Remember: DPS's job is to do damage -- usually not a problem, Tank's job is to take damage -- sadly almost never a problem, Healer's job is to keep everyone up -- so, if anyone drops it is obviously because the Healer isn't doing their job! ^_^

(Disclaimer: Leroy Jenkins made me post that. My apologies to all the dedicated and skilled healers out there who have borne the brunt of unjust criticism from party members who failed to equip their clue that day. ^_^)

@Gil: Ahahahaha XD

Man, it is *rough* being the healer sometimes! I totally get it. :'D
rufiangel 4th Dec 2017, 9:43 AM edit delete reply
@KAM: They can blame him for just standing around in the wrong area though, clearly XD

I never thought I'd ever look at a regenerating wound and think eeeeew XD

You did the fuzzy bby though! Huzzah! Though...beating it is not going as well for everyone else :,D Be careful, guys, we don't want you all meeting the same fate as Gareth... wherever he may be.
rufiangel 4th Dec 2017, 9:46 AM edit delete reply
I kind of always found regen scenes a bit gross though XD


I would like to think I'm getting better at drawing the Behemoth but I also think I'm maybe getting lazier too, it is hard to tell XD oh well, somewhere along the way I'm learning *something*, I'm sure... thank you though dear <3

Apparently, @rufiangel has spun the Big Wheel o' Plot Complications and landed squarely on the space everyone dreads: "Rocks Fall, Everyone Dies." ^_^

Or maybe not. Perhaps Sir Bradley has a plan to rise from beyond the gravel. (Ooooh, spooky! ^_^)
rufiangel 4th Dec 2017, 9:52 AM edit delete reply
LOL, all the Goldra in the pun jar please sir XD

But yes, well, like I've said before: only one way for this to go right, and a loooot of ways it can go wrong. It's just statistics XD

Puppy's breaking containment! Rampaging puppy isn't going to do anyone any good. :( Keeping up healing, barrier, and damage is going to be a juggling act.

rufiangel 4th Dec 2017, 9:53 AM edit delete reply
Exactly right, megados. -v-a It's a complicated situation hampered by a lot of factors. I'm glad you're able to read the situation immediately though - I hope that means it's clear what they're up against! ;v;*)/

I wonder...does this universe have combo attacks between two people? Like....maybe an icequake or frostslide? XD I dunno, just spit ballin' ideas here!!
rufiangel 4th Dec 2017, 9:54 AM edit delete reply
Icequake... frostslide...? *takes notes* Fascinating, please tell me more! XD

Did Kylie accidentally send the monster into a wall and now its free? That's what I'm assuming she's all "Crap" about.
DLKmusic 17th Nov 2017, 8:47 AM edit delete reply
I think she's looking at the break in the barrier is her fault because she attacked instead of fortifying the barrier.

Unfortunately, this wasn't a gamble, she could attack to slow down the regen, or fortify the barrier, and either one would have bad results.

with any luck they can distract the thing before it actually gets out.

rufiangel 4th Dec 2017, 9:55 AM edit delete reply
Yep DLK, you got it in one! -v-)/

Cain does get there but as you've seen on the next page, he really should've stuck to his spot XD oh well!

Bwahaha, the worst thing in RPGs is those critters that insta regen all their health so fast~
rufiangel 4th Dec 2017, 9:57 AM edit delete reply
Right? XD What should take 1 minute to kill takes 5 because they keep peskily healing themselves, sneaky little buggers. At least they eventually run out of MP. Well, sometimes. XD;

When dealing with behemoths of all types ALWAYS BE WARY OF THEIR COUNTERATTACK!
rufiangel 4th Dec 2017, 9:57 AM edit delete reply
That's excellent advice, Crestlinger! They'd do well to heed it :'D

*hugs Rufi* thank you for keeping us posted...

...and please take care of yourself also...

rufiangel 4th Dec 2017, 9:58 AM edit delete reply
Thanks Mjkj, I appreciate your concern. X3

I think I probably *should* try to exercise more often, now that you mention it... XD;;;

@rufiangel, don't beat yourself up over this. You know, and I know that if you're not in the zone, work quality suffers. (At least that's how it works for me) Take your time! :D
rufiangel 4th Dec 2017, 10:05 AM edit delete reply
Yes, that is so true. To be honest I'm not really happy with a lot of the art I've been churning out while under the demotivated fog, but if you ask me to go back through the archives and dig up all the pages I drew while horribly demotivated, I could dig up a LOT and they're all pretty bad XD;;; ultimately it can't be helped - I make compromises and choices to just doggedly keep at it even if I don't 'feel' it, so... maybe one day in the future I'll tweak some of the baddest art XD lol.

Thank you so much for your patience ;v;***

LUKE: "Hey! Uncle Owen! That R-TIST unit has a bad motivator."

OWEN: "Hey! What're you trying to pull here?"

LUKE: "Hey, Uncle Owen! What about that one?"

OWEN: "Yeah, all right. We'll take that one."

You, @rufiangel, are 'that one'. We'll take you. ^_^ It's all good.
