This week’s Almanac are the Odaneois, the vanished nation of the Grande Vire. I’m playing a bit with history on this one. The Odaneois are based loosely (very loosely) on the the Stadacona. d’Artais is a conflation of Cartier and de Champlain. The original settlement at what would because Québec failed because of poor relationships with the natives. Poor relations due to the penchant of Europeans to kidnap the locals and force them to act as guides.
Btw, Kickstarter! We’re almost halfway. Oh man, I’ve got some lovely things to share with you in Volume 2 — sketches, maps, background information, and more. My thanks to everyone who has pledged so far. If you haven’t, please consider it. We need your help to get these books funded. The team has put together a selection of great rewards. Check it out!
Vivienne uncovers an intriguing tale on Chapter 10 Page 24. Maybe all that research will lead to more than just make-out sessions. Her finding leads to a blast from the past. To see who that is, vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics. If you can recognize who that is, then you’ve been reading for a while.
We’re over $4k on the Kickstarter campaign. I recently added two new tiers of rewards. Please consider supporting us in printing Volume 2 of Snow by Night.
If you haven’t been over to see our Kickstarter for Volume 2 yet, you might want to head over now. I’m telling a story about Paws-Tread-Lightly through the updates. So support Snow by Night and get a free comic! What could be better? What was that? Snow-by-Night has a brother?
What is Mathilde up to in the Harp & Trumpet? Rehearsing for their cabaret show, and Cabaret is the topic of today’s almanac entry.
Instead of pushing my own Kickstarter (I lied. Go see the cuteness of the bunny manitou in the latest update), I’d like to encourage you to check out Liz’s kickstarter campaign for Adrastus. If you like giant robots (and who doesn’t), this is a comic you’ll love. Give it a try.
It’s Jacqueline’s turn to take the stage, which she uses to visit the stage on Chapter 10 Page 22. And looks who she meets? It’s been far too long since we’ve seen you, Mathilde. To see a preview of the next page, please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.
Julie will be holding a livestream Wednesday night at 7 p.m. Eastern. She’ll be working on the final page of Chapter 10. Come see Julie’s work and what awaits us at the end of this chapter.
If you like our work, please consider supporting our Kickstarter. I’ve been releasing a mini-comic of Paws-Tread-Lightly as part of the updates on Kickstarter. We’re three updates in so far. I’ll post more pages as we get closer to our goal.
Jacqueline has a thing or two to say about Vivienne’s late night study sessions on Chapter 10, Page 21. Vivienne dismisses her warnings which doesn’t sit well with Jacqi. I’ve titled the next page “When Jacqi Met Mathilde”. See a preview for yourself when you vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.
In cast you didn’t see, we launched our Kickstarter campaign for Volume 2 of Snow by Night. We’re already 25% of the way there. When we hit $2,500, we get another update with Paws. Tell your friends. Give us your support. We need you to make this possible.
