And here's the update! Sorry for the delay, everyone, I had things to take care of on my return.

Hoooly cow what a trip! Exciting contacts were made, confidence was boosted, I feel as though I'm starting to enter the community, though I am just scratching the surface.

I saved your comments from the temporary page!

SigPig! - I have not read it, but looking at it I think I'll like it quite a bit, thank you for introducing me to it!

Taily! - You got it exactly, haha, all the different feelings you can have coming back from a con on one picture.

Jak! - Hey! One could argue this is the perfect time for a vacation! Also maybe JACK forgot he was dead, JEEZ. For real though, I'm really not a con-going sort of person, and this one was actually very small, but it was full of people that were into the sort of thing I'm doing already, so it was totally appropriate. I hope you can come attend a bigger con at some point, though!

Cent! - For real :D And thank you!

iddqd! (God mode activated) - It was a pretty great time, sorry, I can't really dissuade any jealousy there, haha!

joey! - Heh, yeah, I wanted Hugh's bus to be ramshackle as can be, it's super duper simple though I may slowly alter it's appearance so it looks a little better over time because I feel I took it a little far.

WHEW - thank you guys for being so awesome, I'm happy to be home and catching up on my much reduced buffer! :)

Be well!

Sooooo many potential sanity checks just kinda hangin' out in that statuary corridor...

Hahaha!

I'm actually really sorry to say I haven't ever played CoC - I never knew anyone that wanted to get into it. I've played plenty of Fantasy Flight games like Arkham Horror and Eldritch Horror, Mansions of Madness and Elder Sign. They're all great :)

"iddqd! (God mode activated)"
Huge props! :)

Hm, hard to judge like this when the story is still pretty much in its early stages but it looks like Jaunt found his nemesis. Someone who operates outside of his usual predicted cosmic moves (or some such).
I REALLY like the room interior and you did good, son! That must have taken hours...

Hey, the props belong to the owner of the name, haha ;)

I think the answer to your analysis lies in the name of the chapter.. it had an obvious meaning but also a secondary one that I figure will become clearer as time progresses, heheh.

In terms of the BG, not hours, really, but it was definitely a time investment. I was happy with how it came out, so thank you! :)

Thanks for making me check the chapter name again!
Brilliant! The name is from Jaunt's perspective as well now that I think about! It could not be as clear back then.
And I think I get what I am supposed to at this point :)

Oh damn Taily. Soon as I saw that panel I knew you'd go crazy for it. Chase had such a smouldering-sexy looking face in Jaunts recollection.

And this is why you don't look down on humans. We tend to be very good at making those who want us dead bleed for it on a bare minimum... so long as we are aware of them wanting us gone anyways. Surprise attacks and making us disappear still works quite well so long as we're not expecting anything.

let's see... Rock salt, crushed and in shotgun shells, check; ancestral silver, needs to be restocked a bit but otherwise accounted for Cold Iron bullets, check; Wood bullets and slugs made from the types of wood vampires are most affected by? check. firearms that use simple parts to avoid breaking at a wrong moment? check.

Holy Hand grenades... let's save those for later, but they're in stock.

Indeed - the idea is that humans are wily enough to survive a lot of the time, but in the end who will outlast whom?

Inevitability has someone in it's crosshairs, only time will tell~

And my my, that's quite an arsenal. Right out of buffy, haha!

Yeah, well, we humans tend to bribe Inevitability a good bit and cheat enough to force the outcome of who survives whom in our favor.

Oddly enough that's off the top of my head for ammunition that's good against supernatural beings. Most of that is taken from bits and pieces taken from The Dresden Files in addition to other places.

Oh right, lever action rifles and lever action shotguns are probably some of the most reliable firearms in existence. Simple yet robust. Revolvers also tend to be in that category.

whenever I'm down, I just look at my trophies from supernatural battles I fought
and I feel better
5/5 exposition that is actually fun to read because it's well written and placed in expressive panels

All of my trophies are second place trophies :(

Thank you, though, I try not to have too much exposition but I do my best to tell two stories when I do, what's being thought and what's being done.
