Mikhail Quest

"A brief exchange in the old commands thread about whether or not Asotil had unknowingly taken a bite of the poisoned apple inspired me to illustrate a little (non-canon) update demonstrating the speed at which poisoned apples work. It was inspired by a comment left by the user Mikhail."

Quill-Weave: Research

"I decided I was going to win a T-shirt design contest. For some people this would involve making a really good design. For me, it involved asking thousands of readers to vote. Whoops! This update was created as a reward for anyone who signed in to rate the designs, and occurs concurrently with this update, except from Quill-Weave’s point of view."

Prequel: Precede

"Working on merchandise caused some delays in the comic, so to make up for it I decided to make a small sidestory showcasing Katia’s trip to Cyrodiil. I messed up hard, though, and the “small sidestory” became the comic’s single largest and most complicated page to date."

Crowdfunding Receipt comic

"When the T-shirts and other physical goods from the first crowdfunding campaign were sent out, every package contained a short black-and-white “receipt comic” with slightly different scenes depending what items the person received. The version depicted here was the one included with the “Everything” pack. As for how it fits into the overall story, let’s call this it “non-canon, but feasible”."

Aggy: Pass down

"Getting over-ambitious with Katia: Infiltrate led to a long hiatus. Whoops! Toward the end of that hiatus, I posted this riveting look at the ancestral guardian’s life (in the figurative sense) before meeting Katia."
