What's New

17 Sep 14

It's been pretty grim lately, but maybe not all hope has been lost. As we move on from the tribunal arc, maybe something positive can be working in the background. Find out for yourself in Chapter 6 of Tico4. We'll see if I can't get Kazuya to do a belated illustration for this one. Stay tuned.

Those of you who have been following the blog are aware that I've recently had a new story idea that's been holding my attention. I've developed it enough to add it to the list, so enjoy the teasers for The Celestial Kingdom: Volume 1, Volume 2 and Volume 3. If you're wondering why these are in the Fifth Empire Cycle, it's because they take place during the Fifth Empire period and center around a dynasty of pretenders to the throne. More of the lore at some later day. Be on the lookout for the next chapter of Tico4. Stay tuned.

Again I have a picture of the mascot with no real thematic connection to the chapter at hand. I used to completely avoid doing this, but one of my readers took note of her prolonged absence, so now I don't go more than a week or two without having her fuzzy face grace this page. Anyway, on to the main event. We've got Xenomachos' Chapter 1 of TTWC1 up for you. The plot thickens. Speaking of thickening plot, look forward to something a little more hopeful in the wake of the tribunal arc of Tico4. Stay tuned.

I'd love to say that I've got a magical eleventh-hour turnaround for you, but I think we both know things aren't going to go that pleasantly. Here's Chapter 5 of Tico4, bringing a close to the tribunal arc of the story. Expect more twists and turns, plots and plans to come. Stay tuned.

Ayame of the Iron Wall braces herself for the coming onslaught. That or she's just resting her chin on the leg of my drafting table. Anyway, here's Xenomachos' Prologue of TTWC1. We'll see how you like our new lead. Next week we wrap up the tribunal arc in Tico4. Stay tuned.

Things get worse for our gang in Chapter 4 of Tico4. When writing this, I was amused at how similarly a lot of these sections end. I suppose you could say there's some thematic continuity there. I'd like to say things are going to be looking up, but that'd be a lie. Rough sailing ahead. In other news, look for us to kick things off with Xenomachos in TTWC1 next week. Stay tuned.

From her perch on high, the mascot calls her faithful to arms for a new holy war. In completely unrelated news, here's Gamaliel's Epilogue of TTWC1. And that'll do it for the Archbishop. Next time we'll pick up with the celebrated Xenomachos the Iron Wall. He'll serve as an interesting point of comparison to Duke Cronos as a completely different sort of military leader. Stay tuned.

I tend to bend the interpretation of these pics to thematically tie in to the week's chapter to the point of abuse, but I'm not even going to try with this one. Here's the mascot giving Lord Vader a kiss. Chu. Also, ater tormenting you a bit with the previous entry in the series, I've got some real meat for you here in Chapter 3 of Tico4. Look forward to some courtroom drama ahead. Stay tuned.

Unfortunately for the Army of Light, they won't be facing Dragons this lazy in Gamaliel's Chapter 5 of TTWC1. We've just got one more chapter left and we'll bid farewell to the Archbishop. Similar to what I did for Duke Cronos, I plan on dedicating a blog post to review his character once we're done. After that, I'll be introducing you to Xenomachos the Iron Wall. And while I teased you last time, next week you'll actually find out what happened to our boys and girls in Tico4. Stay tuned.

You may have come here looking for answers, but all you get is the mascot's casual indifference. Admiral Mfume isn't finding much more luck in Chapter 2 of Tico4. Don't worry, though, you'll find out what's become of our leads in the next chapter. Stay tuned.

The Army of Light has a lot of vermin to clear out in Gamaliel's Chapter 4 of TTWC1. Look for some answers on what's going on in Tico4 next week (or perhaps some red tape runaround). Stay tuned.
