Here’s Wandering Fortunes chapter 18: At Odds and Endings. Alden and his friends have been imprisoned for discovering corruption in the city, but even if they manage to get out of jail can they escape the cold arm of the mafia? Plans have to be made, and Top’s a wild card–which might work in their favor.
If you like this chapter and want to read more, you can help me out at my Patreon or Ko-fi. A dollar a day keeps the–wait, sorry–a dollar a month keeps the… thing… thinging. I dunno. gimme money.
For the first time in about a year a new character profile is on the website–Chillone, the ruthless snowble in power in New Zhopolis. They’ve just made their first appearance in the most recent chapter, and they’re a big meany jerk. Well, a small meany jerk.
In other news, my Patreon has updated–goals are no longer based on money but on how many patrons I have. The first goal is just ten–I’m already 20% there!–but an excellent goal to reach is 100, where I start a comic series (drawn by good artists who aren’t me!) where you get to email characters and then they’re all confused because who the fig is emailing them asking about their personal life, well better answer the question, but not replying to it via email, no, let’s just speak the response out loud as if the sender is right there.
I promise it’ll be better than that made it sound.
Species profile for the snowbles are up. They are creatures of snow. Weird, huh? They’re basically mean snowmen. Some are large and in charge, and others are small and very in charge. This is not your normal species!
Normal in autumn
A plain look, puffy and gray
Then comes the whoa whoa wait what is this
There are more syllables than normal, what the—
Okay calm down, just keep going like everything’s fine
Then comes the winter, with cloudy swirling snow and hail blizzard
The weather warms, the snow melts, the rain drops start falling
A head of water like the drops all around
Then the sun shines and heat bakes the earth
A sunny head, then returns
Plain autumn Castform

Chapter 7 of Wandering Fortunes is now up. The Obsidian City, New Zhopolis, finally appears! Big city! Tall buildings! Dim lights! Innumerable residents! Numerable but still a pretty high number of species! Subways, districts, roads, vehicles, orators, scam artists, grumps, racism, and jerks, jerks, jerks!
Wait, somewhere along the line that took a turn for the worse. Will the big city turn out to be all that it promises to be? Or will it turn out to be more than that and it turned out we just didn’t hear its promises right the first time?
As always, I post these chapters early for $3+ patrons on Patreon, so this chapter has been available for a couple weeks now and patrons will be able to see more of Alden and his friends’ adventures in The Big City in just a couple weeks. Even if you give just one dollar though you still get to see things early, as I post weekly updates that include a snippet of work much further ahead. You can take a look at a bit of chapter ten already!
