Almanac – Saps

June 22nd, 2012

Hello, Diane here. Sorry for the late update – since Eric and Brit are off to HeroesCon, they left me in charge yesterday, but I got an emergency call late in the night and went to the hospital for a close friend. I dropped straight into bed when I got home, and completely forgot the update until Eric texted me this morning.

So, here we present our next Almanac entry: Saps. I’ve known what a lot of the weapons on our Weapons page are ever since I started playing D&D in elementary school, but reading the details and history about each one always absorbs me. Eric’s a fanatic about research, and it really shows in his writing. Take a look for yourself!


Chapter 2 Page 2

Almanac Reference: The Heavens

Chapter 2, page 2 is up. We will be switching to two pages a week starting next Monday. As I mentioned earlier this week, Brit has had some family emergencies that have prevented us from going to twice a week at the beginning of the month. She asked me to post the following:

Dear readers, I am sorry to say that the twice-a-week posting of chapter two will be delayed due to karma hitting me full force in a very short amount of time. The saying, “when it rains, it pours,” is an apt description of the deluge I got hit with.

Within a week or so I have lost a dear Aunt, my family’s dog of 17 years had to be put down, and my Mom ended up in the hospital (she’s ok now). I’m usually not one to wave personal problems as an excuse for missing a deadline but circumstances have forced me into an uncomfortable position. Take a week to put myself together and delay the twice-a-week posting or start posting and run the risk of missing an update down the road. After a long discussion with Eric we’ve decided to take the former and delay the dual update schedule for a week or so. We will move up to two posts a week as soon as possible. Again, I’m sorry for the delay in the two pages a week update schedule. Thank you for being understanding and reading Snow by Night.


I love my artist and agreed to delay switching the update schedule for a couple weeks. Fortunately, we’re now back on track. Thank you for your patience and readership.

*edit* Whoops. Forgot to load the new vote incentive on Top Web Comics. It’s up now. So see a preview of what Blaise and Jassart see when you vote for Snow by Night.


Chapter 1 Page 16

February 15th, 2011

Almanac References: Blessings, Dommage, Miller, Rook

Page 16 is up. I had a lot of fun making Brit draw this page. She kept sending me comments about it. You can see some of them on the Twitter feed. You may notice that Jassart uses the term “gloire.” This term will be defined in next week’s Almanac entry, but essentially gloire is reputation. It’s a bit more nuanced than that and will play a huge role in Snow by Night, but that definition will work for now.

I’m going to give another plug for Ricky and Brittany. They will be in the Artists’ Alley at Katsucon. Ricky is selling his incredible art while Brittany is selling her fine jewelry under the name Bad Carrot Studios. Stop by, say hello, and peruse their fine wares.

Chapter 1 Page 15

February 9th, 2011

Almanac References:  Liaze ToupinMilled, Riverside District

Page 15 is up. It’s a new day, and Jassart is beginning his investigation of the thief who is causing him so much trouble. The first place he starts is with Liaze, who runs a hat shop in Lower City of Sherbourg. She also has quite a number of secrets as you’ll soon see.

In other news, Ricky and Brittany will be attending Katsucon on Feb. 18-20. They both have tables in Artist’s Alley. Ricky will be selling his excellently drawn art while Brittany will have some exquisite handmade jewelry. Drop by and say hello if you’re attending.

I’ve also added a new panel from page 16 as an incentive for voting for us on Top Web Comics. Please give us a shout out on the poll.


A Raging Review

December 24th, 2010

A few months ago, I did some work for Raging Swan Press, called Pazuzu’s Fury, which details a particularly nasty group of harpies for use in fantasy role-playing games. Yesterday, we got a 5-star review on Paizo. I’m positively beaming. The reviewer particularly liked my story see of “The Ugly Duckling.” What is an ugly duckling among harpies? Read the review on Paizo to find out. Or better yet, buy Pazuzu’s Fury from Raging Swan. It’s $2.99 for the pdf. An excellent deal.

Parental Guidance

November 18th, 2010

A few readers have asked me whether or not Snow-by-Night is suitable for children. That is a difficult question because what is really being asked is whether Snow-by-Night is suitable for my child. Since the answer is dependent upon each individual child that is something that parents will have to answer for themselves. However, I can give the following description to help with the decision:

Snow-by-Night is a fantasy story that may include mild language, cartoon violence, tobacco use, alcohol consumption, thievery, sexual innuendo, philosophy, moral dilemmas, and folklore. Parental guidance is advised.
