Chapter 13 Page 4 reveals that Cienan likes to make deals. He’s made one with Pénélope and he’s made another one with someone else. If you want to see a hint of how Cienan makes the sprite a body, please vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.
Ooh I like where this is going.
My guess is that he’ll be using the Aether that the vault stole from Jassart. And perhaps from each and every one of us who played the puz… HOLY C–!! O. O
Well played, Cienan. Well played, Myth.
Cienan thanks you for your support.
…Oh well played.
Trust me, Penelope does NOT want to look like me.
The Department of Readers’ Safety protests the lack of warning or fine print in the puzzle!
Three guesses who the other deal is with, and the first two don’t count *caw CAW caw*
Cienan’s amusement with Pénélope is quite endearing.
The rest of it is very ominous though. I wonder what he means with Jassart giving her a body. And that vote incentive.
For a while, I thought they are talking about a body hijack.
I feel like they’re somehow talking about stealing Jassart’s body but I kinda feel like that won’t be a thing. Maybe Viv?
Also, what are the green glowy flames that look like more Penelope creatures and keep following these two around in the basement but aren’t ever actually speaking?
I’ll come out and say it–Cienan is far craftier than I’ve been giving him credit for. I’m starting to like this guy more and more, knave though he may be.
So here’s a question did this guy never really finagle/manipulate, finipulate a word can we make it one, Blaise because he knew Blaise was basically a decent person and Jassart wasn’t and it’s one of those everyone gets what they deserve dealies?
Or did he think Blaise wasn’t worth the trouble or didn’t have the ruthlessness he needed?
Usually in these sorts of tales it is a matter of you have to let/help the person trap themselves (which works out usually as a matter of they ‘get what they deserve’ but not because the manipulator cares as much as because that is what works…)
con jobs work best on people willing to be crooks, pretty hard to go to the police after and explain how you were doing something illegal and suffered.
Ye olde alchemal kickstarter.
I…just like these guys more and more with each page >:3
Can’t wait to see the real plan unfold *o*
