Almanac – Sun-in-Splendor

September 27th, 2012

The Sun-in-Splendor is this week’s almanac entry. This powerful manitou is the spirit of summer and the equal to Father Winter. Snow-by-Night has good reason to be afraid of this careless fire spirit.

Chapter 5 Page 11

September 25th, 2012

Our scene changes to the Harp & Trumpet with Chapter 5 Page 11, as Jassart and Blaise discuss the effects the manitou is having on their thieving. I’m also throwing in a small tidbit about the world in there. Chances are good that it will come up again in the story.

For today’s vote incentive, I wanted to share Brittany’s pencils for this page. She often writes humorous commentary for the action while she’s penciling. To see her take on the action in the Harp and Trumpet, please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comic.

I got the Intervention album up on our Facebook page. I was able to get 30 photos and provide commentary. I was using the camera phone, and I really need to hold the phone steadier when I shoot. I’m used to my SLR which has such a fast shutter speed that I don’t have to worry about it. This one… not so much. Anyway, go check out Intervention con report as a photo album.


Chapter 5 Page 10

September 23rd, 2012

Almanac Reference: Sun-in-Splendor

Mathilde and Snow-by-Night have a heart-to-heart in Chapter 5 Page 10. Well, that might be a bad turn of phrase when referring to the manitou. Mathilde asks the question “So what does your heart look like?” Kinda basic question there, Blaise. Our scene shifts back to the Harp & Trumpet on Wednesday. To see Brittany’s incredibly detailed depiction of the hottest saloon on Iniquity Row, please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.

Brittany and I spent the weekend at Intervention in Rockville, Maryland and had a blast. Intervention is a small convention that focuses heavily on creators so we got to spend a lot of time talking to our other webcomic creators. Silliness abounded, as well as some informative panels and amazingly geeky entertainment. I’ll be posting a con report / con photo album on our Facebook page later this week. If you want to head over there now, Brittany has posted some of the great art we received in trades from other creators at the show.


New Fan Art

September 20th, 2012

Hi everyone, Diane here! Instead of Eric’s usual Almanac update, today we have a new piece of fan art to add to the Extras page. Please take a look at the lovely piece by Christina Major here. You guys have no idea how giddy it makes me to see fan art of my favorite girl – though Snow-by-Night has been creepin’ up on that award. We’ll see if you agree in the coming pages.

Brittany and Eric are off to Intervention this weekend without me, so if you see them there, feel free to stop by and say hello, pick up our book, commission Brittany, or take them both to task for leaving me behind. If you can’t make it to the con, you can always help support Snow by Night by voting for us on Top Web Comics. We always have some kind of sneak peek of the next page up for you, so please vote daily!

Chapter 5 Page 9

September 18th, 2012

Almanac Reference: Giavere’s Gaze

Mathilde and Snow-by-Night meet on Chapter 5 Page 9. This is the manitou’s first meeting with someone other than Blaise and Jassart, and this could go poorly for all involved. If you want to see how much snow it takes for Snow-by-Night to form her body, please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comic.

It’s a busy couple of weeks for me. My thanks to Naty for covering the journal on Monday. I’ll probably be asking Diane to cover Friday’s journal as Brittany and I are headed to Intervention this weekend! This delightful convention makes up in awesomeness what it lacks in size. It’s a treat to meet a lot of other creators and they will be there in spades. If you are in the Washington, DC area, I recommend you stop by.

I also have a couple interviews that are up. The first is for Greyhawkery, a blog for the World of Greyhawk and all things Dungeons & Dragons. I’m a huge RPG geek, running games and even freelancing for WotC, and Greyhawk is one of my favorite worlds. Mort cast me into the Ring of Five Questions and dared me to write my way out.

In addition, Brian James and I were interviewed by Byron and Liz of Rho Pi Gamma. Brian and I wrote the book Menzoberranzan: City of Intrigue together. We had a great time chatting up a storm with the two, all while I tried to derail Byron’s agenda for the podcast. Liz is also the creator of another fine webcomic Adrastus.



Chapter 5 Page 8

September 16th, 2012

Mathilde is quick on her feet in Chapter 5 Page 8! I wonder how she and Snow by Night will get along? Something tells me pretty well once the shock factor wears off. You can see a sneak peak of Mathilde’s initial reaction by voting for us on Top Web Comics. I just hope Jassart doesn’t find out that Blaise spilled the beans to Mathilde XD.

And oh hi! I’m Naty! The new colorist! I took over for Brittany at the beginning of Chapter 4. I hope you’ve enjoyed my contribution so far, cause this is a super fun story to color. Sometimes it’s so fun Eric has to make me tone down the sparkles whenever magic happens. Painting all the snow is a fun challenge and always takes longer than you’d think…at least for me. Our latest review from the I Am Legend blog thinks our combined efforts are pretty cool, too. They docked us points in popularity, but we’re working on that. You, dear readers, can help us out by telling your web-comic reading friends to check us out. C: I mean, how many other web comics out there have pocket manitou?


Law of the Riverside Update

September 13th, 2012

Hello again! This is late night Diane, brought to you by the untold joys and horrors of the internet, and also random statements.

We’ve been hard at work reviewing our story and the constructive criticism that our readers bring us. In light of some concerns about Ald’s flashbacks not being clear enough, Naty and Eric have redone Chapter 3’s vignette, Law of the Riverside, for tonight’s update. Please take a look and let us know what you think!


Chapter 5 Page 7

September 11th, 2012

Almanac Reference: Peste

In Chapter 5 Page 7, an utterly defeated Blaise tells Mathilde all about his pocket manitou. If a pocket monter is pokémon, is a pocket manitou a pokéman? I’ll have to ask Diane. Speaking of Diane, my thanks to her for covering for me on the journal entry on Monday. I was under deadline and didn’t have time to swing over. You’re a trooper and a treasure, Dee, but not a treasure trooper. That’s looks like a scam.
