Sev makes so many awesome faces on this page! I think the fifth panel is my favorite. Also, Jonan doesn't seem to need sign language or writing to communicate wordlessly...

The vote incentive is awesome, but it just makes me more curious! Do the runes on the runewriters' scalps correlate to the runes they use to cast? Are they tied to the activation phrase they say? If a runewriter did shave his or her head, could you tell what kind of runewriter he or she was from the markings? Do the hair clippings change color (from brilliantly colored to the base color) after they are separated from the runewriter? Could a normal person tattoo runes on their head to give the impression that they're a runewriter? The world is too interesting, gah! Also, I love Sev and Jonan's response to the third question. XD Thanks for answering the questions about the last page in the vote incentive!

Ahhhh thank you! I REALLY ENJOYED DRAWING HIM THIS PAGE I WON'T LIE.
I enjoy doing the little Q&A sessions and I felt like a lot of the smaller details wouldn't come up in the story, so hey, why not! :"D Most of the further curiosities just make me think it's time for Runewriters fanfiction to come into being and answer these important questions.

I love how in panel 3 Jonan is acting all "I'm not not-speaking because I can't, but because I'm friggin' Jonan of Rusanne and it is bellow me to talk to you."

Sorry for double-posting, but I got a question:
Could Sev magically change his hair colour? We know he can change skin colour.
posted at 5:16pm on March 25th, 2013
The only reasonable conclusion, of course! IF HE'S WEIRDLY QUIET DON'T QUESTION IT YOU MIGHT MAKE HIM MAD.
But as to the question -- Sev can't currently, though there are shapechanger runewriters who can. Blotting out the visual manifestation of magic would be a pretty intense disguise-type spell, whereas his skin-pattern-changing spell is an extremely beginner rune. He focused more on turning into animals than on disguise. :")

I would save so much money on hair dye if I were a runewriter. That's all I learned today.

The question is -- WHAT KIND OF RUNEWRITER. (I would want to be born with shapechanging powers but I'm pretty sure the green hair would look weird on me.)
I did once meet a man with Jonan's exact goatee in real life! The man who owned it told me it was a LOT of trouble to keep it looking like that.

We're all so proud of you, Sev! Ahahaha, this page made me laugh more than many of the pages prior, which is SAYING something! XD I LOVELOVELOVE the fact that Jonan totally got them in with the power of his reputation and MENACING STARE ALONG.
Also, I totally see the, "Ehhhh...>.>;;;" look on Jonan's face where Sev asks if he's 'famous' here, too. Can't WAIT to find out what that might imply. And why Tarith is gasping, of course.
As for the vote incentive, THAT IS SO SUPER INTERESTING! I personally highly approve of you explaining the whole thing with the hair tips being colors as "Beats me! Magic is weird." EXACTLY. Also, yes: bald runewriter is officially awesome. AND this totally explains how you would know if you were a runewriter early on. The signs all over your scalp would probably be a clue to everyone who ever knew you. Unless you're like a baby that was born to some people at my church recently, who has a TON of hair on her head, but I guess that would get colored and...I'm rambling, I'll stop now. Greatpagehaveaniceweek :D

DON'T UNDERESTIMATE JONAN'S GLARE MAN. Hahahahhaha I like that you put "famous" in quotes.
BUT OH MAN I think the baby-with-full-head-of-hair would probably throw people off at first if she happened to be a runewriter; the colour comes in when you're very small, and before you really start being able to cast, but I don't thiiiiiiink it happens right away. (I'll have to check my notes on this, THERE AREN'T ANY BABIES IN THE MAIN CAST SO I MAY HAVE FORGOTTEN EXACTLY WHEN THIS HAPPENS)

I'm trying to imagine how many menacing sounds Jonan can make with his lips stuck shut. I'll bet there's a way for him to manage a decent growl.

I'm attempting it now, and it works for me if you do it kinda deep in your throat! Jonan's kind of a tiny guy to be growling, though. Like, he's tall but that's about it.
(Runewriters Fact: I audibly act out all of Jonan's "dialogue" while scripting.)

He's SO famous he's concealing his hair as you speak, Sev. Nice try Jonan, but I think they're still going to know its you, what with the perky horse corpse. Very cool incentive, by the way; this whole hair color system is way neater than any of the other methods of marking casters I can think of, really nicely fleshed out.

Really, they do have a necropony with them! I totally forgot. Hehe, try to blend in with that. :D
posted at 5:15pm on March 25th, 2013
Hahahaha, what, everyone carries undead ponies with them, right? I mean, I take mine with me everywhere, I don't know about you guys.
(and ahhhhhhhh thank you very much! :"D )

the vote incentive brings up the question of wigs though in a medieval tech world, they might not look quite as realistic...... though, magic
posted at 3:19am on March 26th, 2013
NAW THAT'S A GOOD POINT ACTUALLY wigs would work just fine. Though, yeah, you'd have to get a nice one if you need it to fool a guy whose main job is examining people's hair and making sure it's not magical. Get one made of someone else's hair, though; keep a hood up or something so he doesn't ever see the whole thing, and you're golden.
I can only think of one kind of runewriting that could make wigs (shapechanging magic applied to objects rather than living things) so that's probably not a super common process.

Jonan's ankle doesn't seem to be bothering him anymore. Did he get it superfasthealed or is he just pretending it doesn't hurt like shit?
posted at 2:24pm on August 16th, 2013
He still has the cane, it's just not visible in any of these panels. c: (and in panel 2 he's not walking so he can take his weight off that leg)
....But yeah, playing it off is a factor too. He's done that before., haha.
(P.S. thank you so much for all the comments you've been leaving! *u* )

I noticed that when I got to the next page but I was embarrassed about oopsing in the comments. *nervous chuckle concealing wounded pride*
He's tough for a skinny, almost-vampiric necromancer who probably doesn't stay injured for very long. But I feel pretty bad for him since he can't scream... or even say "ow holy shit" for that matter.
(P.S. I though I might've started getting annoying and was thinking of stopping. T~T Just let me know when you'd like me to shut the flute up, and I totally will brosis)
