Yeah, you don't need to be traumatized too, Xira; that wouldn't be helpful.
And I'm increasingly concerned by this madghost.

I think a madghost is valig reason for concern. Madness and ghosts are pretty concerning separately, but combined? freaky.
Btw I love how fitting your username is for these pages :D

Ms. Shazzbaa, I think you are very good at pacing for a webcomic. There always seems to be something going on even when you're expositioning at us (the last few pages with the talk of ghosts and stuff). In print it might seem too fast and jumbled, but since we have a week between each page to digest what's going on, I think it works better.
I'm kind of comparing to another webcomic (not that I think you are directly competing) which has some pretty action oriented subject matter, but basically only three action sequences in almost five hundred pages :v

Oh my gosh, thank you so much!! Keeping everything at a good pace with a page a week schedule and making sure there's enough on each page is something I work really hard at, so this means a ton! ;u;

Xira is catching on fast. Smart boy. And Jonan, master of gently waking up girls!
And I really love the vote-incentive! :D It is exactly what I suggested would happen, in a comment on the previous page.
Also nice job on panel 1. I can't look at it, because I makes me freak out after a few seconds.

xD the mental image of a mind-cupboard full of spiders was too perfect to resist!
(also omg I'm sorry but also thank you)

(don't be sorry, the freaking out was meant as a compliment. I don't have any phobia or anything, but that panel is just really well-done nightmarish)

Aaaamd suddenly the black glowy stuff makes sense when thinking back to Iavin... I suppose Madghosts aren't restricted to a single component of mind magic. Which actually makes me quite curious to see more of the other types, eg hellhounds

What if aberrants were actually Runewriters, and the madghosts used to be witches?!?!

I wonder what is Aember doing during all of this. Sleeping?
Is Jonan trying to get Tareth to move up from the bed? Maybe show her to Sev so he'll snap out of it?

Sev is hallucinating, and somehow still thinks to be sarcastic. #goals

xD SERIOUSLY, I would love to be composed enough to be snarky while dealing with One Thousand Phantom Spiders instead of just, probably, crying?????
Also I keep going between the pages and it seems like Sev is being somehow scooched/slid/puppeteered forward, aka towards the door-that-is-not-a-door-it-is-a-facestealer and I REALLY HOPE it's just a Perception Is Tricky / scene composition thing and not a Madghost Delivery And Takeout.

OH LOL I'll go ahead and ease your fears on that, Sev is not moving, Xira's just kinda moving around him and composition is hard
so, yeah, nothing to worry about! :D everything is fine and dandy

OKAY EXCELLENT THANK YOU. I am so glad it wasn't intentional (and don't think any less of your skill for it being unintentional -- definitely a challenging bit to portray cohesively left to right, between five bodies and two beds)

Given that I have actually had a nightmare where I was being swallowed alive feet-first by a snake, I was distinctly troubled by the prospect of Sev being caught in a similar scenario.

Very much appreciating Tarith's bedhead, nice I'm not the only one that wakes up with hair going every which way. XP
