The Vault Door

February 10th, 2016

I have a special surprise for everyone today. Diane put together a mini-game of the Vault Door using art by Julie and Steph. Can you help Jassart get through the vault door? The mini-game is based on the 15 Puzzle that’s been around for more than a century and a half. We made it a bit larger, and instead of numbers, the tiles form some sort of design. Bonus points if you recognize what that design is.

Solve the Vault puzzle, and you’ll get a prize! It’s a special wallpaper by Julie. Please don’t share the link to the prize with others. Make them solve the puzzle to win it.

While the puzzle will be linked between pages 17 and 18 on the site, it’s not necessary to solve the puzzle to continue the story.

Let me know what you guys think. If you like this sort of thing, I can do more of them in the future.

Jassart finds the Vault on Chapter 12, Page 17. Unfortunately, it’s locked. And locked in an unconventional way.

Wednesday’s update is my surprise that we’ve been working on. I can’t wait to share it with you. (Evil laugh) No almanac  update on Friday as I’ll be at Katsucon (see below). The next page on Monday is a scene shift. Guess who makes an appearance? To see, please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

KATSUCON this weekend! This is a fun convention. I particularly like how it’s a 20 minute drive away. Diane and I will be there at the Snow by Night table (G12). Steph (E17) and Julie (O11 in the Dealers hall) will be there too. If you liked Kristin’s artwork from the most recent vignette, she’ll be at table D10. Come by and say hello!

Jassart comes across a creepy chapel on Chapter 12 Page 16. What do those statues mean? What’s with the paintings? What is Cienan in to? So many questions! Jassart makes another discovery next week. Vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics to see what it is.

It’s Valentines Day in Washington so that means Snow by Night will be at KatsuCon on Feb. 12-14.


No Almanac update this week as I’m working with Diane on something top secret to share with you next week. I think you’re going to like it. I’m really pleased with how it’s turning out.

Jassart is shadowed as he ventures past the ornate door on Chapter 12 Page 15. And that shadow is messing with him. Tsk tsk, Jassart.

Almanac – Aradie Map Update

January 29th, 2016

I finally got all the snow out of the driveway and off the sidewalks and I had some time to work on the maps. So I present to you the updated map for Aradie! Now with a scale, compass rose, and more places labeled.

Finally digging out of the snow from the weekend. I dug a sledding shute for my daughter. I posted a video of a ride down the hill to the Snow by Night Facebook page.

Jassart finds a mysterious door on Chapter 12 Page 14. Such a lovely door. There’s surely nothing sinister behind it. Or is there something sinister behind Jassart? To see what the sinister is behind him, please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.
