oh, right, yeah, the thing where you try to watch Xira cast....... that we definitely never did..... riiiight......

Okay gang! Sorry for the lateness on this one but now I have AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT!


After this update, the update schedule for Runewriters is changing in a kind of big way -- I'm gonna try moving to "scene" updates! This means that instead of getting out one page a week, I wait until I've finished 4-5 pages and post them all at once as one "scene."

The main reason for this is that, to be honest, I can't quiiiiiite manage weekly updates right now. I thought over it a lot, and I think constant short hiatuses or skipping updates every couple of weeks aren't great solutions for you guys or for my mental health; I think updating in scenes is gonna be the best way to make sure you guys are still getting satisfying updates!!

If you like this plan, then thank my dear friend and constant encouragement Steph!! She's the one who suggested it!!

BUT if you kinda prefer seeing the pages as they're finished and don't want to wait, I've got an option for ya -- I'm gonna try posting pages early, as I finish each one, on patreon for $1 backers!!

This is super new to me so we'll see how it goes!! I'm excited to try and I hope this will be a good solution for everyone! :D

NOW MY QUESTION FOR YOU IS: when you get an update of four pages at once, would you rather see them posted as individual pages that you click through, like normal? Or would you rather have them all as one long post, like this two page update? I've been giving it some thought but I'm interested to hear you guys' preferences!

OKAY I THINK THAT'S EVERYTHING!! Feel free to ask if you have any questions! If you want to be alerted to the next update, you can see a link to the Runewriters Discord, Twitter, Tumblr, Deviantart, and ComicRocket right above this post -- updates will be posted in all of those places!! thanks as always for the patience and support you've all shown so far while I work this out!! I really truly could not ask for better folks reading this comic, and I'm extremely grateful for you all! ;u;

I think one big page with everything is better and would keep us from being spoiled.
Alternatively if it's not too much work you could set up a special "last update" page that points to the first page of the most recent update; that way people could bookmark it and not get spoiled either.

I'm reassured that it seems like Xira won't inadvertently spill any secrets through the mindlink (I mean, I know he doesn't have any and all his actions motives and thoughts are always transparent as high-quality glass), but now I'm curious: how would it work if -someone else- were to try to contact him at the same time? Like several phones on the same line (everyone hears everything), like several chat channels (completely separate) or like people calling, one your cell and the other the landline (if you're not careful, some of what you say could spill over on the other line)?
But, well, I'm sure it won't happen. Xira has been so long-term-thinking and organised and all till now.
