Happy wednesday, fellows. Looks like Chase is in it, now, whether he's up for it or not. Chapter 11 is almost done!

Something still smells very, very fishy :/
None of the involved would make these mistakes in my opinion. Tbh, not really sure what I mean by mistakes but they act kind of weird...

Also... Come on, Roy! You can admit for once that some people are just that skilled with their instincts ;)
But fine, detecting magic from someone that powerful probably really is that good, haha.

Slightly confused by the last panels. Did they arrive at the upper floors or did the reality around changed or something?
Not sure what the "Huh." is, haha.

Don't know about the "Huh" but I'm sure I got the last 3 panels, as follows:
- left: Bottom floor, the only way is up, there is no cellar (might be normal)
- middle: Middle floor, you can see the hand rail going all around
- right: Top floor, no stairs going further up
No change if reality needed

If Roy is correct (and not kidding about the natural detectives), there are 2 reasons why Chase is sensitive to Eldritch energy, the other one is: He was exposed to it during the confrontation with Jaunt in Innsmouth. That counts, doesn't it?

Again, they don't know this mysterious man is Nyarlathotep, so they're not marching to their deaths, as far as they know. Also, you might not know what Imemi is capable of, eheh.

In terms of the last panels - Chase is saying "Huh" in response to Roy positing the ability to sense Eldritch Manipulations being directly linked to good detective instincts. He's taken by the sensation he feels as he ascends the stairs.

I understand that the art was not super successful on this page, something I was pretty upset about, but the intent was to depict them climbing to the third floor, which is why the stairs stop going up.

Yeah, that staircase is really wide for a brownstone

Basically all of the proportions are off. I just got to a point where I was like "As long as the message gets across.." but I feel like I failed, there, too. Oh well. Can't win all the time.

Ahh. It makes more sense that Roy is handing out candy , not money. If Nyarlathotep just made his exit there would probably be a ton of eldritch energy floating around. I like the subtle shading around the door in the last panel.

Yes! Some candy bars, not cold hard cash, eheh. And if Chase has any kind of sense for this sort of thing, he would definitely feel it here, huh?

I'm glad you noticed it, I wanted to depict the source of 'dread', heh...
