More of that little two-person D&D game I play about two lost robot children.

Clancy is a golem made to look like and act like and believe itself to be a ten year old boy, made of flesh and clockwork. He has no idea that this is the case.

24-52 aka Twen is an alchemist’s assistant golem made of a toy soldier and alchemists’ chalk, who has run away and is trying to pass as a normal living person. Sometimes this works better than others.

Little Clancy is oblivious enough that he hasn’t figured out that either of us are golems, and just thinks Twen was being awfully silly when the snow and cold made all his metal joints lock up.

24 was very close to guessing that Clancy was a golem but then dismissed that as impossible. After all, Clancy eats and sleeps and bleeds and acts like a ten-year-old kid who thinks all monetary transactions should be in candy.

NostalgiaQuest: The Dark Dragon (DragonBoy)
Drawing all my characters, from middle school on, in their latest incarnation, from memory.
The Dark Dragon (NICE NAME DUDE, WHERE DID YOU COME UP WITH THAT) was a villain who isn’t complicated but is still hard to draw. I think he had some kinda bargain-thing going on with King Khat because I apparently can NEVER have straightforward villains in my stories, ever. He can’t exist outside of shadow, so after escaping the dragon dimension he just kind of hangs out in King Khat’s shadow and plots, as best I recall.
I don’t remember what his deal was, either. 
He also got this exchange at one point, which I was awfully proud of in highschool —
King Khat: Are you threatening me? Ha! I’m not afraid of you. You can’t even leave my shadow. You are bound to it.
Dark Dragon: Funny….. so are you.
—and… no actually, I still think that’s awesome.

NostalgiaQuest: Red Thunder (DragonBoy)
Drawing all my characters, from middle school on, in their latest incarnation, from memory.
The name seemed cool at the time. So did all those scales! Hnnnnnnng. 
Red Thunder was Kamaro’s best friend, who lived in the dragon world. For some reason he was keeping Kamaro’s ability to transform into a dragon a secret, though I’m not sure how he expected him not to notice? He was also involved somehow in the circumstances that made Kamaro what he is, though I REALLY DON’T REMEMBER THAT BIT WELL AT ALL and I’m not 100% sure I ever knew what was going on there.
I’m not sure if you guys have noticed, but every non-villain character in this story was based on a colour of the rainbow. There’s no in-story reason for it, but that’s how I initially made them — I was home sick with a fever, and bored, and thought to myself “I’m going to make a bunch of characters, let’s start with the colours of the rainbow!” So, for future reference, if you ever want to make a bunch of REALLY DISPARATE WEIRD CHARACTERS, just let a bunch extremely saturated colours inspire you. c:

NostalgiaQuest: Zevulka and Cloverpawz (DragonBoy)
Drawing all my characters, from middle school on, in their latest incarnation, from memory.
NOPE THERE’S MORE CHARACTERS IN THIS STORY WHY DID YOU THINK WE WERE DONE
Zevulka was a genetic experiment to create a real, live Pokemon-like critter, because apparently people in this town have nothing better to do! He was mostly a success, except that instead of saying his name to communicate, he mostly complains and swears a lot in perfectly comprehensible English.
He is rich off of endorsement deals and a pretty successful stint in marketing, and is now mostly retired, where he spends his wealth indulging in various weird niche hobbies, like y’do. His private collection of Egyptian artefacts occasionally tours museums but mostly stays in his mansion, and if you’ve been paying attention to the other NostalgiaQuest entries for this story you can probably guess that he joins the party (rather, yells at the party until they join him) after he’s robbed by an absurd supervillain.
He’s sort of snarky and doesn’t really want to save the world; he just wants his stuff back. I’m sure he warms up to everyone eventually. Kind of.

Cloverpawz, meanwhile, is a flying green guinea pig for no adequately explained reason. It is Zevulka’s “exotic pet” (seriously, that’s all the explanation that exists anywhere) and just follows the party around, being adorable but silly and useless like guinea pigs usually are.

RUNEWRITERS - FILLER

Had some family stuff come up at the last minute and couldn’t finish a page this week — so I thought I’d show you some of the concept studies I’ve been doing to tide you guys over! 

They don’t have a cruciform church floorplan because their religion doesn’t really have cross symbology - they have diamonds all over everything instead. If you look at the gravestones in Jonan’s cemetery in earlier pages, the “crosses” there are actually basically diamonds on sticks. c:

Sometimes I just randomly get an idea that I have to spew onto paper for a couple days even though I’m not 100% sure what it even is.

The cat zombie’s name is Travesty and the bird’s name is Edgar. The jawless possum is my favourite but I haven’t come up with a name for it yet.
