Damnit, Sev. I could accept the Hunters knowing more about aberrants than you, or a town guard knowing more about runewriters than you; but when a random innkeeper knows more about magical nonsense than you... it really hurts your credibility.

It makes sense. I mean, piecing together what I can of his backstory, he hasn't been given much of an opportunity to learn anything outside of either his home country (can't remember the name) or his current home in the village.

Which brings the question: what is the education system like? I've asked about religion, politics, etc. But are there colleges? Elementary schools? A place where Runewriters learn about Runewriting history?

Oh my goodness, the faces in this are amazing- Sev in the third panel... and the fourth... and everyone in the final panel. Just too good.

WHAT! This whole time I thought that the innkeeper was an awesome, sexy, big-sized badass lady with an eyepatch, and on this page it suddenly looks like he's a guy? She totally looked like a woman on the previous page, and now she has sideburns and more round, less sharp and badass face in the last box she appears in.

So it really isn't a cool woman? *tears*

Wait, that's not a woman?

Yeah, I totally missed out on the sideburns in the second panel with the innkeeper on the previous page. :D She totally looks like a badass warrior innkeeper on the last panel on the left (on the previous page), though. Since we get rarely characters like that (in general in the media, not in your comic - we've already seen that cool city guard), it was so awesome to think for a moment you put in a character like that.

No worries, a lot of people missed that! He's half-trader (like Xira, the other person that lots of people mistook for a lady), so that's probably contributing. x3

I try to put lots of kinds of people in RW! ;u; Whenever there's a new minor character I like to see it as a chance to try something new. There will be plenty of time for ladies who are much more badass than the inkeep, haha!

I've actually always thought Xira was a guy. :D

Oh cool! I'm looking forward to seeing the traders' hair! Is the innkeeper's hair more from his traders' or other heritage?

It's okay. I'm sure these facestealers are like lightning and never strike the same place twice. So everyone is sure to be fine! Because everything is sure to go well for our protagonists. Right? Right? (I'm scared.)

Also, I like the design of the innkeeper.

I mean, the innkeep seems confident...ish? it's probably fine. I'm sure it's fine.

(ahhh thank you! *u* )

I mean, it's not like anything bad ever happens to protagonists, right?

HA! Xira and I are the same kind of non-confrontational - "we've already paid," "eh, the food is here - let's just eat it and be on our way," "no need to cause trouble or draw attention to ourselves just because things aren't exactly as hoped for." I . . . might be willing to just forget about the money, though, in order to NOT be at inn with a possible facestealer lurking nearby . . .

Add me to the "wait the innkeeper isn't a lady?" bandwagon. Even with the sideburns, they still look like a lady to me... ah well.
