And I return. Many apologies for the huge delay. Life got crazy but not in a bad way. I started my new teaching job, and I got a puppy! I am having a blast with both, but they are huge time sinks. I'm starting to get a handle on things again time management-wise, so hopefully updates will get a bit better, but they may be spotty for a while yet.

A lot of you anticipated something along these lines. Mina takes a very methodical approach to things. Anything that might tap into the more monstrous side of her or her subjects is avoided as much as possible. We'll have to see what Joan thinks of all this.

Both Mina and Archie are mildly sunlight tolerant. They won't burn up, but it weakens them considerably. Archie gets to be there for the signing of the contracts because he is the super bureaucrat (and has the most recognizable hand).


re troblsomtwins829: Sadly, I've removed that option for out dear vampires. They're going to have to go a little darker to survive.

re man in black: As much as she tries to avoid that fact.

re Onasaki: They're a little wary of volunteers. That often is a warning sign of some odd mental issues.

re Xylas_Incarnum: yup, pretty much

re Arrikanez: Looks like you and Mina are on the same wavelength.

re StellaFrost: I hope Mina's solution lives of to your high expectations of her.

re Kadtie: Drake is looking a little nervous about the direction the conversation is taking.

re Eva Emaria: I agree about the animal blood being a cop out, so I've made it not an option here.

re Imola: yeah, it started off so strong, but the updates have certainly trickled over the past few years.

I meant... 10 years and we still don't know what the devil the title means. :P
(Also we've changed so much I guess...)

Welcome back! Glad to know you were just busy! *hug*

As for the page: I was anticipating it was going to some darker method. :)

And the only reasons the blood of other types of Solfidians wouldn't work is probably pride and that various mythical creatures have rather... potent other effects tied into their blood...

Like dragon blood granting immortality being one such, I remember something about acid like blood being a property of another being but I can't remember what it was. Basilisk?

Can't remember, I only seem to remember how to kill things more or less quickly these days.

Ooooo... What effect would Aylis' blood have, I wonder? -Curiosity stirring-

Kadtie, October 19th, 2015, 8:33 pm

That is actually a really good solution. Unique too, as far as I can remember. I went through a "vampire phase" in high school and read all the vampire books in the library. It fits Mina very nicely.

If I could replace taxes with blood, I'd do it in a heartbeat.

Is it possible for groups to infringe on other's tropes?
The use of the word tithe makes me think of "the good neighbors" and I'm wondering if any of those tropes could start inflicting the vamps with interesting storylines.
Being forced to grab a guy from the surrounding villages every solstice to test a couple's love sounds like it wouldn't exactly be a hit with this group.

The solution does indeed live up to my expectations. I was concerned about the imprinting. Now I see that Mina has thought of that as well. She really is a wonderful leader.

I hope you're coming back soon. I've missed your updates. This story is just so amazing!

Arrikanez, January 24th, 2016, 11:02 am

I hope you come back...

StellaFrost, January 28th, 2016, 5:08 pm

I hope you come back soon, Dai.

I wish the forum was more active still with the champions too.

Every now and then I come back to re-read your comic and I still love it after all these years. <3 Hopefully everything is alright with you, and I am eager to see where the story goes from here. You are very talented.
