Nice save, Sev.

HI, early update today!! :D I'm heading out of town tomorrow so I'm gonna TRYYYYY to get to sleep before midnight.
It probably would've been smarter to just let the website post and go to bed but uh..... I DID THIS INSTEAD.

If you vote for Runewriters you get an extra doodle! This one answers the obvious question.



Vote Incentive for This Comic.

Comment by Toanovu

Oooooooooooh early update! AWESOME!

I like how the vote incentive answers the whole "what does the church think of necromancy" debate. (Or at least, what does this member of the church think, but I think we can assume this is the general consensus?)

Yeah, the exact feelings would probably vary a little but he's not too far off the consensus!
Raising the undead in Varænske is less of a vile, evil thing and more like just a gross, weird thing. Like, it'd be similar to the feeling of, I guess you can bring your anime body pillow into church, technically, but they'd really rather you didn't, that's just, weird,,,

Now I have a mental image of Jonan carrying around a body pillow and I can't get rid of it.

Haha, I'm glad I'm not the only one who saw him as striking a pose. Quick, someone Photoshop him onto a Vogue cover!

In all seriousness, though, he does look quite menacing.

It's meant to be a raptor but the skull's a little weird since I didn't look up reference while scribbling up the vote incentive xD

also this is a very accurate description of Jonan

I notice that his strategy for no one realizing that he can't talk is just towering over people, looking as threatening as possible.

Absolutely unrelated, but -- I love Jonan's outfit so much. I wish I was taallllll so I could dress like that without it being weird.

Does this mean Jonan is Mary Sue?

Omg let's not forget that he's the only one who has mastered all three branches of that life energy magic. He IS Mary Sue!

All we need to do now is to change his name into something more Mary Sue like. If you're feeling lazy, all kind of dots are always a good choice. For example: Jönân. Much better!

Yay! Sev is finally learning to keep his big mouth shut... so long as he has prompting from an angry, scowling necromancer.

"Then with a jealous squeel, the wicked witch burst from concealment - where she had been lurking surreptitiously!"

Honestly, I love how casually he just comes out from behind the curtain. "Yeah, I have been here the whole time, whatevs. I'm Jonan, I hide in your curtains whenever I jolly want to. BOO!"

Oooo, I see Xira peeking in there in the next to last panel . . . which means his beautifully timed entrance in the last panel is almost certainly an attempt on his part to help. I hope it works, because I actually, for some reason, really like Xira! Still, I kinda can't help but feel that Xira plus Sev plus Jonan trying to make a coherent and reasonable explanation together is probably a recipe for disaster . . . Waiting with bated breath to see what happens next week!

(Also, the vote incentive was perfect!)

Xira could probably do just fine, knowing what everyine else is thinking. But then, people might notice that his eyes are glowing, so that might be a problem. So I'm more worried about Sev opening his big fat mouth and sticking his foot in it.

So what you're saying is you think this team is not screwed enough? I dunno, with all the miscasts and notoriety they look pretty screwed.

I'm inclined to assume Xira was "listening" in Sev's panicked mental workout there, the poor sod. Quick, bust in to make it stop!
