– Sorry to keep you all waiting again. Its strange how quarantine during this epidemic has distorted my sense of time. I’m very used to not having a regular schedule, and getting up at 6am one week and 6pm the next. Part of that is having to work around the schedules of normal people and businesses that are open at normal times. I may work all night, but my bank and doctor is only open 9-5. But these days a lot of people, businesses and institutions have given up normal hours, and suddenly I’m scheduling video calls at 4am or waiting to talk to a printer on the phone at 11pm or some ridiculous thing like that. Its thrown my whole non-routine out of balance, and I’ve found myself losing days. for example, last Friday I was sure it was Thursday, and all weekend I was 1 day off.. I spent all of Yesterday working on a new Ghost Kiss story (for real) before realizing it was Sunday and I should have been working on a Medusa page!
– I think this is the first time the Arsenal of Winter has been explicitly referenced in Modest Medusa? You can find out a little more about it in Ghost Kiss and the Yeld RPG.
So what the fuzzy snek is saying is… Winter is coming.
Sounds like a sidequest upcoming 🙂
“Among the judges or the dance regiments.”
… I’m suddenly reminded of one of my Final Fantasy Tactics units. (“Judges” are a thing in the second game.) Her main Class is “Dancer,” but she also likes punching people.
I have some unusual Class mixes. I love them all~
Uh huh. Judges and Dancers are FF inspired Jobs in the Yeld RPG ( in a book we’re working on, not yet released).
Anything like the Hunter class from FFTactic Advanced? Would feel fitting if there was a class that captured monsters to make them battle for them, especially if there are any modules you include that have Modest herself appear as an NPC
After all, the Pokemon jokes could go for AGES
Sadly, no. We decided to avoid pets (Except for the Shepherd’s Sheep) because they really complicate combat and slow down the game. We do do something like that eventually though. We have a few ideas but they need tetsting.
“Judges and Dancers are FF inspired Jobs in the Yeld RPG”
Oh, hot dang! That’s pretty fun! But uh… how does Yeld RPG “Judge” class work? I can’t imagine every battle in Yeld is monitored and given restrictions…
(Then again, I don’t understand how every battle in Gran Ivalice was monitored and given restrictions, so…)
Its not the exact same thing. Judges in Yeld can pass laws on the spot that restrict or benefit everyone. for example, at the beginning of their action they can declare “No acts of violence”. For the rest of the round non Friends or Monsters can take actions that will result in their opponent losing a Core die.
Ooh. That… actually works well.
Now, implement it into the comic in a reasonable and logical way~
I’m not sure if we’ll see Judges in the comic.maybe eventually?
It must be dangerous if someone who milks ghosts doesn’t want to go there.
Milking ghosts isn’t that dangerous, as long as you have the right stool. And warm hands.
::remembers what the arsenal of winter is::
Wait, the Arsenal of Winter? O.O
“Winter is coming!”
-Elsa Agnarsdottir, Drottning Arendelle
Well, some of the tales are true. You know how people are, always making stuff up.
Oho this is where it pays off to do your extra credit reading!
Waits, the Arsenal of Winter is ins Ghost Kiss, toos? >@.@@.@<
