That weapon bracelet has been around for a while, hasn't it?

Working on bringing updates back up to a once a week schedule. Also reviving the communication stuff that had gone dead during the long hiatus. There will be some lovely fanart popping up soon that is overdue for sharing!


re Eva Emaria: Footwork is so important though. All the bladework in the world won't do you any good is you aren't where you need to be (plus its pretty decent exercise for us modern folks)

re pfmoi: its a big old world outside of that little village.

re man in black: Time for drill sergeant mode!

re Imola: Being a jerk is an asset when doing drills.

re Arrikanez: hopefully she'll learn enough to use the sword safely, but she won't be battling vampires anytime soon.

re StellaFrost: Hey Stella, Sorry but I can't find the forum pm. Could you try again (Smackjeeves PM or I'm still getting things like that up and running after the long hiatus. Opportunities for Sierra to pop up will be soon!

re Xylas_Incarnum: It is pretty foundational training at this point :) Drake touched on it a bit, but even with years of training she wouldn't stand much of a chance against Solifidians with any superhuman physical traits. A lot of this is to get her out of the "danger to herself and others" category with such a potentially dangerous blade. She won't be having and dramatic battles anytime soon, but there may be some clever uses in the future.

re WinterGold: I've got a tumblr (Daidaishar there too) but I mostly use it to repost random things I find funny so I can find them again. You can feel free to contact me there if you like. I've also got an email set up for this comic: I've been neglecting it a bit during the long hiatus, so I've got a few fanarts that need to share from there too. I'll probably be posting those soon too.

Yeah, I'm a natural staff fighter, so when they had me doing stuff that felt weird, it made me go, "Whaaaa?" So yay, validation.

Oh boy, Joan hit a nerve. Don't hit those, that gets ugly!

He doesn't want to talk about it

.... I want to say the best way to deal with being physically weaker than pretty much everything you might be faced with is to be prepared to kill everything and anything with cheap tricks but that seems like something that'd require a drastic personality shift to learn.... and a far more scumbag type teacher to learn from.

I read the backlog from the last fight with the Red Cross back up to now...

Drake didn't have the Bracelet until after they arrived in the vampire castle. >.>

EDIT: Actually looking back in the archives, it does show up. However, it's like the bracelet hides inside Drake's human form unless he wills it to be visible. Am I close? >.>

Also, Daidaishar, if you need inspiration to get back on a good schedule, after this chapter you might consider checking in on poor Kyle, and this comic's been going on for like... 12 years. Jeebus.

It's hard to believe the entire journey has barely been a few weeks, from the beginning of the comic.

I think I see what you mean about my question about dragon slaying blades being answered...

I sent it again via email this time.

Arrikanez, October 19th, 2017, 2:58 pm

Hrrrm. Something tells me that's not something Drake's just going to talk about. Something's up with that bracelet. Maybe something dangerous? Who knows.

Anyway - I did have a question. What about the RP that was going on between the people in the forums? Is there any interest in continuing that?

Be still my heart! Oh I am so happy to see you back! I almost forgot how much I loved these characters. I just might go back and read it all from the beginning again.

My husband has been studying fencing and kendo and various other sword fighting styles this past year to come up with lightsaber fighting techniques for a book he's writing. He has had me help him test things a few times to see if they would make sense to someone, like myself, who doesn't know the first thing about sword fighting, and he tells me repeatedly every time that it is ok for me to hit him with my saber, but I still can't. I just don't want to hurt him. I imagine it would take a while for someone actually learning to fence to get over that.
