Happy Friday! :D I hope you guys are having a marvellous start to your weekend, so far!

I've been really happy to continue to see responses for the SF Christmas giveaway! Thank you so much ♥ Aside from granting me the opportunity to thank you guys with free stuff, it's really been aiding my market research! XD

Again, for the bonus question, the chapter summary page might be helpful :D (It's completely optional, though!)

[Note: The giveaway is now closed. Thank you for your participation! :)]

So far, the giveaway Rufi mystery packet will have:
- The Lethian if you haven't already gotten it!
- Leftover pre-order exclusive bookmarks for The Lethian~ (I think I only have one full set left; the rest are Jason and Linda XD;;)
- SF Stickers!
- Free DLC!
- A Nemi and Michael postcard print!
- A Nemi and Michael mug :D
- Other stuff yet to be finalised? XD;

I'll be collecting answers until Sunday (December 6th), and will announce winners next week. :D Thankyew for taking part~~!

I'll be away this whole weekend on a church retreat, but Monday's strip should go up on time - another 1.5 page update~! :D

Have a fabulous weekend, and catch you guys on Monday! <3

This might be the most number of happy faces in a page I've seen XD See what you do to your characters, rufi?! Look at that Madou grin <3

And YUS, we're finally gonna know stuff! Don't ruin this with your obscure fairytales, Madou!!!

XDDD Hey, they have had their happy times! And plenty more happy times to come, I promise ;D



Also... this is Madou we're talking about, I can make no promises XD

Oh no, mad-ou is smug again =S

*comforts Nemi*

PS: enjoy your weekend :)

Isn't he always?

And I think we never really learned Nemi's reason for going there, or did we?
mjkj 5th Dec 2015, 12:22 AM edit delete reply
We learned the kijin had some problems with the danrir there and she left Fel for the astorian plains to get some official help afair...
Lukkai 5th Dec 2015, 9:34 AM edit delete reply
We don't know any details though. Only that she had to travel to the plains because of something danrir did. Not what it was and why exactly she was going there.
rufiangel 7th Dec 2015, 2:52 PM edit delete reply
We'll learn more about Nemi's reasons for heading to the Astorian plains in the next couple of chapters! :)
rufiangel 7th Dec 2015, 2:51 PM edit delete reply
I did enjoy it, thank you Mjkj! <3

And yes, Madou is always smug as a bug in a rug. XDD

Panel 6 makes me think of a police line-up.

"Are these the adventurers that attacked your husband and looted your cave, Mrs. Monster?"
rufiangel 7th Dec 2015, 2:53 PM edit delete reply
Ahahahahaha! XDD Amazing comment - this could be the basis of a game I feel like! LOL

"granting me the opportunity to thank you guys with free stuff"

I can't put my finger on it, but something about that business model seems off...

rufiangel 7th Dec 2015, 2:53 PM edit delete reply
XD It's my way of thanking readers for reading at all! <3
Headgamer 4th Dec 2015, 9:23 PM edit delete reply
O good. Let's hear what Madou is hiding. Or at least a bit of it ,
FYI if I haven't been relying much it's because my iPad is on the blink and it's horribly hard to type.
rufiangel 7th Dec 2015, 2:54 PM edit delete reply
Indeed, let's find out what Madou knows...!

No worries Headgamer, I appreciate that you are still reading, always <3 I hope your iPad blinkage gets fixed though :'D
Seabiscuit 4th Dec 2015, 10:06 PM edit delete reply
Madou is the absolute best part here, as he is on any page he's on. *nods* I say this totally unbiasedly

And holy shit, he better spill in the next page, hahah! Super hyped to hear what that idiot is trying to do!
rufiangel 7th Dec 2015, 2:55 PM edit delete reply
Ahahahaha oh seamuffin, you're gonna like the next couple of pages I think if Madou just being there improves it XDDD

Btw, yep, it looks like Madou is finally opening up his yap! :D
Stever 4th Dec 2015, 10:21 PM edit delete reply
Looks like their little fellowship is ready for action.

Have fun on your retreat. I miss doing things like that now that.
rufiangel 7th Dec 2015, 2:56 PM edit delete reply
Ahahaha, fellowship of the thing XD

And thanks, Stever! :D I did have a good one~ <3 Hope you can go on one when you need it in the near future~ :D

I wonder what Lenna will decide on doing. After all she said she would help Cain with the research. And that he needed someone to attend to his curse.
rufiangel 7th Dec 2015, 2:59 PM edit delete reply
Hmm, well, Lenna did say she'd let him know what she gets after looking into the research more deeply. :) And the research is kind of dense, so it might be hard to do on the go.

(spoiler alert?) Lenna does happen to have a little leaf sprite around that speaks Archaiean... who may have the ability to contact the party whenever... ;)

Hey! Listen!
Lamelle 5th Dec 2015, 12:19 AM edit delete reply
hahah! I love how everyone has the biggest smile and Kylie is like: well then. there you go.

I do hope Madou has something to tell that isn't super cryptic and vague x)
rufiangel 7th Dec 2015, 3:00 PM edit delete reply
Ahahaha XD Kylie can be very chill! ;)

And Madou, not being super cryptic or vague? :'D Wellll... Icanmakenopromises
Jarvi 5th Dec 2015, 2:09 AM edit delete reply
Of course Nemi isn't going to leave them ^^
It may not be entirely her choice, it might be because she'll have to do it to protect them or something.. but she won't leave them :D

And Madou, yes, we're listening :3
rufiangel 7th Dec 2015, 3:01 PM edit delete reply
I guess it depends on why Nemi has to go to the Astorian plains in the first place~ ;)

And everyone, gather 'round to hear what Madou's about to reveal...! ;D
MST3KFan 5th Dec 2015, 5:20 AM edit delete reply
Why do I get the impression that Madou will give info in a confusing and/or riddle like fashion? Not just give a straight answer...

And Nemi...don't leave! You're the team's adorable mascot!
rufiangel 7th Dec 2015, 3:01 PM edit delete reply
You probably feel that way because up to this point, Madou has hardly ever given a straight answer to anyone XDD so I don't blame you!

And Nemi was on her way to the Astorian plains to begin with, so priorities, I suppose? :'D
TheD-Wrek 5th Dec 2015, 8:08 AM edit delete reply
Love that group shot. Print/poster worthy.

Or a desktop wallpaper perhaps? :D
Lukkai 8th Dec 2015, 12:05 AM edit delete reply
XD I can't help but look at the picture of Kylie there and hear her saying "That's 1'000 Goldra if I'm going to accompany you until there!" XD

Matt Knab
Woohoo! We officially have a full, well-rounded party of five!
rufiangel 7th Dec 2015, 3:05 PM edit delete reply
Ahahaha <3 yep! Madou just kinda... stuck, I guess XDDD

*Leena remains silent.
rufiangel 7th Dec 2015, 3:05 PM edit delete reply
Lenna doesn't seem to have much to say on this page, ne. XD
HeSerpenty 6th Dec 2015, 5:51 AM edit delete reply
Woohoooo I'm all caught up--- sorry for the lack of commenting Ruf, I hate commenting on my phone and that is where I read all your updates XD.

Can I just say... I really hope Jinn goes bye-bye and Mikey comes back eventually? I MISS MIKEY! no like Jinn >__>. HE RUINED MY SHIP *sobs*

Also.. it will be hard to imagine this group without Nemi!!! I will be sad when she goes X'D
OO yay time for some maybe answers about Abel... I need to know more about him XD. And Cain. As usual your storytelling is spot on!!
rufiangel 7th Dec 2015, 3:08 PM edit delete reply
Don't you be silly Serpy-kins, you don't need to apologise for a lack of commenting! *hug* :D I appreciate every comment you do take the time write <333 And I totally understand not liking to comment via phone! XD

Jinn does seem to have bought the reader's eternal hatred for his unforgivable sin of bothering Nemi XDDD we'll see how the whole Jinn and Mikey situation evolves ;D

And thankyew Serpy-kins ;3;* <3 I'm always relieved to know when the storytelling is working!! Hopefully people will find what Madou has to say... uhm... not too strangle-worthy. You'll see what I mean. XD

Chris the Blue
Gah, I love you so much Madou!
I'm glad he's part of the party now! Even if it results in there being a... 5-member party.
That just ain't right, to my FF instincts at least.
rufiangel 7th Dec 2015, 3:09 PM edit delete reply
Lolol Karda! XD I'm glad you like him so much, even when he breaks the convention that way ;D

(I'm always pleasantly surprised to see how people react to Madou; he certainly exceeded my expectations XDD)
Centcomm 16th Dec 2015, 11:03 AM edit delete reply
And you have my .... dagger. *looks at mile*

lol yay the fellowship is togather !
