Welcome to Orthanc, folks — AKA the Orclands!

I can never resist dropping a “I have a bad feeling about this…” every now and then. If my memory hasn’t failed me, this is the second time in the series (and the first instance in Book 2) where I’ve used it. Not the only Star Wars reference in the series either.

I don’t know what it is about these four characters… but I find them some of the easiest in the series to write for. We change scenery next week and are introduced to some new characters…

Looks like someone familiar is headed this way.

It’s been a while since we last saw this bunch. I wonder where they’re headed…

Cover: Into the Orclands

So… I wasn’t able to build as much of a buffer as I wanted (only the first 5 pages, not included the cover) of Chapter 8 is fully complete; however, I didn’t want to wait much longer to begin posting again. The good news is pages 6-8 are fully colored (you can check them out on Patreon now) and just need to be lettered. And, as always, if you want to read way ahead… the entire script for Chapter 8: Into the Orclands is available for download on Patreon (along with tons of other in-progress art, concepts, and more).

Please leave any comments or questions you have about the story so far and I’ll try my best to answer. :)
