Prologue retirement
posted by Ypsilenna @ 4.12.2017, 20:08

I wrote a new reader's guide and I moved the prologue to deleted scenes in the process. Now the comic starts from the cover of chapter 1 and the new reader's guide takes the place of the prologue. In case if you still want to read the prologue, it's here.
I was about to do it a bit later, but I decided to move it today. The poll from my previous post is now closed, thanks for participating.

Prologue chat

Hello, dear friends!
There are some things I would like to talk over. Yesterday I started to think about the prologue and there are some changes I would like to make. Of course I could just do them, but I want you to tell me what you personally would prefer.  Okay, so let me start:
Some of you might know that this current comic is one of many reboots and it's the only successful version. I started this comic way too early and I went through many hardships trying to make it. The way the prologue looks now was more like a draft so that i can sketch the basic concept for you to know what is going on. The thing is, the second chapter is about to end very soon and it opens the plot called "The tale of Parent Time" where the backstory of their world is going to be shown. It's a secondary plot that does connect with the primary plot but it has lower priority and will be used as an intermission between parts of the main story (to connect with it by the end of the comic).
Since the backstory is going to be displayed better in the secondary plot, the prologue becomes obsolete. It was already optional, but now I'm considering dropping it. I was thinking of putting a small text guide for newcomers somewhere instead of it. Of course I won't delete it forever, it will still be accessible is a separate place containing deleted scenes (I considered making a new website for it but i may as well just make a gallery for it).
The prologue matches the actual comic way less than I thought it will. The art sticks out, breaking the fourth wall might have not been a good choice and generally it feels a bit off to me. I know some people who actually liked that part of the comic, but i also know that some people may find it mismatched and unnecessary so feel free to suggest which way to go.

This month I made a dedicated wiki for this comic. Beware, there may be minor spoilers out there.

Hi all! Today I added push notifications to my website! I will use it to notify my readers about new pages and blog entries. I hope you will find this useful :D
If you find it too spammy or annoying you can always disable it through the icon visible in bottom right corner.

Alternatively you can use RSS feed as you always could (thought I can't include blog entries there due to ComicFury not using this option) for less popup-y notifications.

The free Project Wonderful ad box I offered has been disabled by them due to low website performance during hiatus months. I won't re-enable it just yet. I might do so when I'm fully back and the website gets traffic again. 

[EDIT]: I did some tinkering around the website and it seems it's already 100% completed. Feel free to contact me in case if you find any issues or simply want to suggest something!

New website layout
posted by Ypsilenna @ 15.10.2017, 17:20

The new website layout is almost ready (98% kind of ready).
I just need to do some small tweaks but more or less it's what I wanted to achieve. I'm planning to start updating the comic again around halloween, stay tuned :)

Hi everyone.
I'm gradually starting to feel better. I think I might start coding the revamped site layout before I continue to progress with the story though.
I've just been inspired by the chat I had with my friends and the new website layout is going to be something like a mixture of MMO website and probably a space atlas (I still have to think about that).
I got excited about crafting a new template, I can't wait to write so many things about the comic, character classes and the world. 
Feel free to leave suggestions below!
