Defiant Elk claims his opponents’ valor on Chapter 13, Page 27. Blaise has opinions about it. Elk tells him to stuff his opinion. What is Snow up to during this? Please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics and find out!
So this page. I spent a long, long time thinking about this page. It’s subject matter is controversial, and I didn’t want to walk into it lightly. So I talked about it with historians and native artists. I did research. In the end, I decided to include it, because it is setting up important events later in the story.
Also, this practice did happen, and to remove it entirely would be a form of erasure and an embrace of the noble savage stereotype, which I’ve worked hard to avoid. Toothy Kit and Defiant Elk are both protagonists, but they have their flaws. They are grappling with radical cultural change that is upending their way of life.
Finally, I am drawing upon the spiritual reasons why the nations of the northeastern woodlands scalped in the first place. Elk isn’t doing this for a bounty. That would happen in real history as the colonists sought to manipulate the natives for their own gain.
If this page is offensive in anyway, please accept my apologies. This page is important for later events and was not a casual decision.
The Morantine scout fails his duty for the last time on Chapter 13 Page 26. Blaise, how did you get up there so fast? Did you parkour through the panels? I want that superpower. For a sneak peek at what victory brings, vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.
Snow-by-Night makes quick work of the Morantine scouts on Chapter 13 Page 25. Enraged manitou are dangerous things! Where is Blaise during all of this? Vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics and see his handiwork!
This daemon isn’t going down easy on Chapter 13 Page 24. Snow-by-Night expounds on the attributes of water. There will be a demonstration of those attributes shortly. See for yourself when you vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics!
We’re back from GenCon, but I still haven’t recovered yet. We all have a great time, but sleep suffered. We greatly enjoyed our run through True Dungeon. We played some D&D, Dragon Age RPG, Phoenix Dawn Command, and more. We also met a lot of wonderful people who stopped by the table in Author’s Avenue! Thank you everyone who stopped by! We’re looking forward to next year when we’ll have Volume 3 published!
Kill the daemon! Snow-by-Night suffers the Morantine counter attack on Chapter 13 Page 23. Does brass disrupt Snow’s incarnation? Hmmmm. Interesting. You can see Snow’s response when you vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics!
We’re off to GenCon tomorrow! Since the entire team (and I mean all of us — Julie, Diane, Steph, AND me) is going, we’re going to take a short break from posting pages until next Wednesday August 10. I’m sorry for the mini-hiatus in the middle of a fight scene. If you’re coming to GenCon (and probably about 65,000 of you are), please come by and say hello. We’re in the Author’s Avenue at Table AA-I. We’ll have Snow by Night, Riven Seal (Julie’s comic), and Final Arcanum (Steph’s comic)!
