Gosh SOMEONE'S touchy about a miscast spell.......

AND THAT'S THE END OF CHAPTER TWO OH MY GOSH CAN YOU BELIEVE IT. But fear not, everyone! There will be more of the Agorath Order yet, and alllllll will be explained in time~ :")

Voting will, as usual, get you a silly doodle! This one is KIND OF LONG and has another Q&A with questions from the comments section! Confession: I love doing these.

So someone said "The best answers are the ones that rewrite the questions." Well this page does just that. So. Many. New. Questions.

What kind of mind magic distorted his face? Was it mind magic at all? So mind magic applies to vegetative nerves as well - of that doesn't seem insanely overpowered at all. Or wait, is that some sort of telekinesis? Can Esra really undo this miscast or is he just "ballsyly lying" again? And who is this Artist? I think he was mentioned before? Like in a "By the name of the Artist" manner or something?

But at least the vote incentive answers a few other ones :D

I think the artist is a god, or possibly literally the actual artist of the comic, who created the world and basically is their "god". Thinking too deep?

Oh man, so many questions, this is awesome! And I'm not gonna answer aaaaaany of them yet~~! :D

Oh, but since I have a freakishly precise memory of my own archive, the page you're thinking of is that infamously texty one. :")

Do the symbols of your runic script have a translation? It looks a little bit like Futhark, but not quite. Is it a common script or your own invention?

Looking forward to Chapter 3!!!

I was wondering that too. But maybe this was covered before, or wasn't it?

Thanks! It is my own invention! -- though I was heavily inspired by Futhark when creating it, most existing runic alphabets that I could find didn't have enough letters in their alphabets for what I wanted. :")

The rune-speech is basically just magic words. You could imagine runewriters yelling "Abracadabra!" or some Harry Potter Latin and you'd have the basic gist!
But each runewriter does have his own specific, consistent phrase -- if someone had the inclination to work them out for some reason, they can indeed be translated.

HHMMMMMMMmmmmmmm now I begin to understand...a little. OH GOODNESS END OF CHAPTER 2

XD I love that you totally referenced my whole concern about him caring more about bloody bootprints than dead bodies in the Vote Incentive. Although he has basically only confirmed my suspicion that he STILL doesn't care much about the actual lives of the people who used to inhabit those bodies, which in turn confirms that I would totally not enjoy being part of this organization.

Ahahahaha thanks! I seriously love doing those Q&A doodles whenever I can get away with it without gettin' SPOILERY. :"D
(Though it's true, I think Esra totally missed your point.)

I just want to know why he's calling them plagiarists.

Reply by VioletArrows

He called them that in the previous comic too. Whatever magic they're doing, he doesn't see it as legitimate magic (I suppose as opposed to the god-given, innate magic that runewriters use.)

Omg end of chapter two!! Come so far, and I'm so hooked!=) Now to a change in scenario, and maybe a new character, since chapter two got us Jonan? And I look forward to seeing their interactions, what with their weirdly impaired comunication...

I just have to say, I've been reading your work since you were doing TNH, and just... You just keep getting better! I don't know exactly why, but this page makes me say, "Dang, awesome!" :D Keep up the great work, I'm excited to see what happens in the future - and way to go on consistently improving as you have!
