Daughters of the King Page 4

October 30th, 2011

Almanac References: Belle, Coquette, Ouais, Sherbourg, Sing of Apples

Page 4 of Daughters of the King is up. Girl meets city; city meets girl. I tried to imagine what it must have been like to walk down the gangplank to a horde of frontiersmen who haven’t seen much in the way of women in years. I figured mass chaos.

To see one of the hazards of dating in colonial Aradie, vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

Daughters of the King Page 3

October 25th, 2011

Page 3 of DotK is up. In 1662, the Daughters sail the ocean blue. Shazzbaa based the ship off the Golden Hind – the galleon that Sir Francis Drake used to sail the Atlantic and the Pacific in the Age of Discovery. Since the greatest sailors in Corthis (Snow by Night’s world) are from the Freeports of the Kennard Reach, and the Freeports are based off of England (if England developed as a confederation of city states instead of a monarchy), it seemed only appropriate to have the ship be of English design. Besides the Golden Hind is a beautiful ship.

This week’s vote incentive is the panel where boy meets girl for the first time. Check it out when you vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.


Daughters of the King Page 2

October 23rd, 2011

Almanac Reference: Saronne

The second page of Daughters of the King is up. This story of love on the colonial frontier is an homage to the 770 women who immigrated to New France under royal sponsorship. The program was called Filles du Roi. They even have a non-profit organization La Société des Filles du roi et soldats du Carignan. It’s things like this that makes me love this time period so much.

This week’s Almanac entry is the inner planets under Astronomy. This covers the two luminaries of the Sun and the Moon as well. Some of you may recognize the order of planets as being the Ptolemaic model. Nuts to you, Neoplatonists!

Daughters of the King Page 1

October 18th, 2011

Almanac References: 1667, Aradie, Clouddrift, d’Accord, Maman, Sherbourg, Silver

This week I’m starting a vignette titled Daughters of the King. This short story (it’s 7 pages long) was written by our editor Amy Menge and illustrated by the immensely talented Shazzbaa. For those of you who don’t know her, Shazzbaa is the creator of Today Nothing Happened and Runewriters. She’s a graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design and an avid gamer. I was overjoyed that she was willing to do this project for me, and the results were everything I hoped for. Please enjoy our tale about love on the colonial frontier.

Oh, for the vote incentive, you can see the Daughter of the King herself. Vote for Snow by Night on TWC.


Chapter 2 Page 28

October 16th, 2011

Almanac Reference: Giavere’s Gaze

Chapter 2 page 28 is up, and this completes Chapter 2. The trap is sprung and the merrie little doe is caught. Brittany is busy drawing Chapter 3 “Heartless” as we speak.

Until that gets started, I have a fantastic surprise for you. The chapter 2 vignette is drawn by the incredibly talented webcomic artist Shazzbaa, creator of Today Nothing Happened and Runewriters. She has illustrated the vignette Daughters of the King, which tells the story of the brave women who traveled to Aradie. This 7-page short story was written by my editor Amy Menge. The first page goes up on Wednesday. It’s beautiful, and I can’t wait to share it with all of you.

For a preview of Shazzbaa’s lovely art, please vote for Snow by Night.



This week’s Almanac entry discusses the outer planets that orbit Corthis. These are more than distant celestial objects. The philosophers say “As above; so below.” The planets have spheres of influence that affect daily life in Japethe and Everique. The entry discusses the outer three planets of Elus, Zenos, and Pyra.
