Chapter 48 : Cover

Chapter 48 : Cover

Postby Kern » Tue Jun 30, 2015 5:43 pm

It's finally there, a new chapter focusing on the Beldrobbaen clan. The cover represent the theme of the chapter , thus have fun deciphering what will happen.

Fixed --- Now on the size of the cover, it's not a new format. This was our usual break-the-archive-frame kind of effect, however Kite beleived it would look bad if the towers to the side were used as a frame for the cover. This normally would be debated and tested, though the cover is already 1 day late.
And this is a sponsored chapter by Khora. What does sponsored means ; it's not like a commission, he or anyone can't dictate the story, this is not a fanfic , this is a normal chapter with two editors instead of the usual one. He approached me with the desire to have the Beldrobbaen be given their own chapter and i had a story plot that could fit, so it works out. My goal is to keep this as a standard chapter, albeit one with cameos chosen by the sponsor, thus the lack of cameo offers before this chapter began. It also mean this chapter has a fixed duration: 40 pages to be exact. Will i make it 40 pages exactly? That i don,t know, at least not yet. This one thankfully has only one central character and a 3 arc plot. Much shorter than say the previous two chapters. In the end the sponsorship is a nice things Khora did to help us with something, so thank you khora. Does that mean the next chapter will be sponsored? No, i already declined another sponsorship offer for Nalsarkoth. The next chapter will be the Kyorl.

AWESOME! MOAR WAES.


Love seeing more of her, again. She's my second or third-favourite character... depending on much much I want to punch or high-five Kiel on a given day.

I'm excited like everyone else to see Waes, and a chapter revolving around her, but that cover has me worried.

I hope she doesn't get infected with the flower poison, or getting eaten by an escaping Demon God, or hope that her clan manage to survive, but just as everything else, those hopes are going to be crashing down a dark pit, just like those tiny drows on the cover.

By the war, I think I recognise Verthandi in the mix, but can anyone guess who's the one holding a sword ?

And speaking of decyphering the hidden meaning of this cover, Is Waes trying to collect the red particules ? It could mean that she's trying to salvage the remnants of her clan...

it kind of looks like someone launching a squad up into the 9th tower with wind and blood sorcery.

Sorry to disappoint you, but that's not the 9th Tower, just the main upside down tower of the Beldrobbaen.
But, I must confess, it looks like they're both falling and rising.

The cover looks awesome, guys! Thank you, Khora, for sponsoring what is sure to be an awesome chapter! I kind of wish the fans didn't have to pay extra to get a look at the other clans, since the main archive focuses so much on the Sarghress and Sharen that I would probably be at risk of getting sick of them if not for this chapter.

Though that being said, I do hope money won't be enough to justify making WaesxKel cannon, since realistically I'm still pretty sure that their opposing ideals would be a source of conflict, not romance.

since the title of this chapter is "Old Blood"... I would say blood, but what could it mean in terms of symbolism...
"Blood will be spilled ?" (as if it hadn't been before, ha ha...)

The strange thing in this cover is Waes' gestures toward the blood falling down... Does she contemplate it ? Or is she trying to collect it ?

Waes, please don't be insane and infected! :U But really, it's wonderful to get an entire chapter about the Belds. Even if spiders creep me out. I just killed one infact, it was sitting on top of my desk exactly at eye level, but it hadn't been there a moment ago, you see I dropped a pen and went down under the desk to look for it. Then I look up and its. Just. There. Crawly, icky and creepy and a few inches away from my face. We both jumped. Evil things. *Shudder* I swear they're getting smarter!

I think the red drops are pulling double duty as blood and flower petals.

....Well, maybe. I don't see much reason to wipe out the Belds, as they are more or less irrelevant politically do to their refusal to interact with the outside world much, not to mention lacking the military and economic resources to do much if they did try.
