What? Me Worry?

As was pointed out, Mandrake comes from a cyberpunk culture. The fae there have learned to adapt their illusions to thermal imaging systems.

Someone's still gonna die, though...

For those of you interested in Silver City, the superhero webcomic by myself and Keith, the second page has gone live for the public! Patrons got to see the page a few days early but now everyone can read it. It looks fantastic, if I do say so myself.

As a side note, yesterday was my birthday! Yay me!

See you Monday!

Now For Something Different

Kludge sure is being bossy there! Seems like he has a plan, though. Maybe we'll even get to see if Mandrake survived long enough for the end of lockdown to matter soon!

Or maybe not.

Don't forget, Keith and I are running a Patreon to fund our superhero webcomic, Silver City (and, indirectly, future chapters of Mysteries of the Arcana). The first page is already up at the Patreon site to view!

And for fun? Here's my fridge pickle recipe:

1. Gather together cucumbers, garlic, fresh dill, hot peppers, distilled white vinegar, distilled water, salt and a mason jar.

2. Crush 1-5 garlic cloves (to taste). Put in jar with two sprigs of dill, one sliced up hot pepper and a tablespoon of salt.

3. Cut up the cucumbers into spears or slices as desired. Fill the jar to the top with cut up cucumbers. It is important to fill the jar.

4. Pour in white vinegar until about 1/3rd of the jar is full. Fill the rest of the jar, to the very top, with distilled water.

5. Shake the jar vigorously. Put it on the counter for 12 hours. Shake it again and turn it upside down. Put it back on the counter for 12 more hours.

6. Take a test taste of the pickles and then put the jar in the fridge. It should be good for about two weeks in there.

See you Thursday!

Armless or Haaaarmless?

Poor armless Surgeon. How will the poor thing practice "medicine" with no arms? All those neat toys yanked off thanks to the now deceased (re-deceased) patchwork twins.

I'm proud to announce that the Patreon campaign for Silver City is going strong! We're up to $61 per page. For those who don't know, Silver City is a new webcomic from Royal Road Studios (aka Keith and I). It is written by me based on Keith's concepts and illustrated by Keith. The idea's pretty simple: a world in which superheroes are new, where powers come with disadvantages and where there's diversity in the population. Eventually, we'll get a website up and running but, for now, pages are being posted over at the Patreon. The first one went up this week and patrons got the first read but we've made it public for all of you to check out, too! Please read the page and consider backing us. Even $1 per page can make a big difference. Especially since Keith is giving me credit towards future Mysteries of the Arcana chapters based on how much we raise in the Silver City Patreon!

We have a complicated but fun relationship. :)

See you Monday!
