Chapter starts on page 1939 in case you're lost.
Back to our regular schedule now.
Regular schedule meaning daily pages still, for clarity.
Surprise chapter dropped out of nowhere. Nice. Also nice to see Veda get dunked on after all that, even if she'll be fine in the end.
Regular daily releases continue let's goooooo!
I hope the creepy evil lady's alright.
Huge exposition drop in one day rather than drip fed over weeks? You truly are the best of us Neo.
Keep up the good work!
You mean to tell me dropping an entire chapter was planned? Damn, I'm impressed.
Well this is a great start of the week.
Also glad that this chapter drop wasn't a mistake
Damn, I didn't know those paintings were hiding something so ominous.
Wow, what a surprise!
Reading this chapter reminded me of the time I first stumbled onto your comic (APTGG at first to be precise) when I could binge read it all in one sitting - great experience!
Holy cow, two months worth of pages! Thanks a lot! What a nice surprise.
I see why you did it though, this was a huge & exciting "exposition dump", reading it in one go was probably the best way to experience it.
Man, that's way beyond what most artist do (tho i guess the artstyle helps in that). Cheers man! Amazing stuff.
Damn I thought the rss was bugged and checked just to be save. (Because i had that with some feeds in the past that they just sometimes spit out a bunch of old ones at once.)
I am still holding out hope that the arc will separate Noah from the empire because I am seriously getting tired of him being an henchman for Veda or the empire. The trouble is if he could Noah just would stop doing anything if he got out of the situation.
Oh a massive posting. For a minute I thought I went into a coma for several weeks.
Haven is a haven no more.
Whoooah Neo this is awesome! And to think APTGG had long hiatuses and breaks.
Woah, that's a big bombing of 60 pages !
And with very good storytelling ! Congratulations, Neorice, and thank you !
Ah I missed binge reading this comic. NOOOOOOOO MALHART! Awesome chapter!
Cool! It was a really nice surprise being able to hop in and discover an entire chapter had been posted. Good stuff!
Thank you, Neorice!
Did anyone laugh at the further foreshadowing of Veda's true form/nature when she noted that she has met many people the same length as her?
I love it when things get just slightly more heavy handed, and you know the payoff is coming.
Holy mother of God. That was fantastic.
I love Noah and this situation is a great shakeup for him and this whole thing ! It might change everything if Veda doesn't survive or lose the empires support
"I'll just casually drop 60 pages. No big deal"
Yooooooooo this is not what I expected. Both amazing you just dropped the entire chapter at once but also it had me hooked on every panel!
So apparently it's Christmas in July!
Whew, that was something alright!
Wow. Thanks for all the pages at once! I kinda hope Veda is dead.
Daaaaaamn what a twist
I don't understand why the empire hasn't evacuated haven long before now. How can they be so strong that it won't interfere with the propaganda to allow a "terrorist cell" to practically run the city, but so weak that they can't allow anyone to know that they need to evacuate.
Wow, that was a RIDE.
@Neo - What brought the update-a-palooza? Not that I'm complaining.
Holy shit! When I checked my RSS reader I was ready to swear there was some bug in the feed. But you gave us 60 pages of sweet exposition. I really wanted more Noah content as well so this was a dream come true.
I don't comment often, but this was impressive as all hell Neo.
I don't think we need more evidence that mr. Rice is the most generous webcomic artist of all time
I also wonder what's the average length of Veda's species. I think we will see, she's too good a villain (?) to lose prematurely. She also had dreams, and now almost the means to realise them.
Thanks for multi-updates.
@Agent_Cook I don't think he has Andrew Hussie beat yet. Close, though.
I think the bigger issue is that you just plain can't evacuate a city easily on short notice, and she had nobody on hand who even had the authority to do it, regardless of willingness.
This actually makes perfect sense.
The Empire probably reacted to the scenario very quickly, given the rampant violence involved. Their initial observations probably suggested destructive magic, so they may've gone searching for an expert in magic (like Malhart) to handle the problem before they really knew much more.
If Malhart managed to shut down the problem quickly enough by painting the city, then the Empire may've wanted to keep potential culprits in the city, within Malhart's painted area, rather than risk spreading the problem elsewhere. Maybe they could've come up with a clever plan if they had more data on the exact nature of the problem, though it's unclear how much they knew.
Note to other readers : Chernyl d'aryl was mentionned first page 1212
Iâm really interested to see whether or not the entire city counts as a âdreamâ for the purpose of Noahâs powers to work, and if he will finally be forced to use his power when he escapes this dream, in the same way that he was forced to use it after he escaped the elf
Long time reader, first time commenter and... wow... that was a power move.
Not just uploading an entire 60 PAGE chapter, but uploading it in-between daily updates, just... wow. And at first I said "oh, this makes sense, it's mostly exposition and Veda's talking a lot" but then, nope-huge WHAM of a thing.
Noah's my favorite, I can't wait to see where this goes.
Quick, Back to Burke for happiness!
I guess Malhart's death is inevitable to juxtapose how a ruthless b* Veda is, but I liked the old chap.
Also, why I get the feeling that these nightmares and the pandemonium monsters (tethered to provide magic powers) are connected?
Have to comment just to give huge kudos for the massive drop!
Though I am now convinced you are a madman, but hey it is important to be yourself even if that self is is nuts!
That was a lot of stuff happening in one go... Thank you for the chapter, Neo. And I do so hope that Malhart will be okay, at least for a bit longer... maybe at least long enough to talk with Noah one more time...
What a treat! You're the best neo!
Also, Dun Dun Duuuun!!
This was awesome! Really liked this chapter and thanks for sharing so much with us at once! <3
And thanks a lot for still having daily update! *.*
