Hey guys! We're back!

So here's how updates are going to work. I'm going to keep working on pages as usual. But instead of scrambling to rush out pages twice a week and relying on an ever-shrinking backlog of pages to fall back on if I miss a deadline, I'm going to just upload a page as soon as I finish one.

I hope that this means there will be a new page every 4-6 days. Updates will be a little more sporadic, but that means the page quality will be a lot higher since I'm not rushing.

Thanks for reading, and the support, and enjoy chapter 4!

As long as you keep updating, I'll keep reading! Your art style is fantastic and you do a great job with dialog and scene-setting.

Thank you! I don't intend to stop until the story is finished.

Having the blood of her enemies splattered over her hat is going to give Ms Colleen plenty of kudos down the pub.

One more reason to never bathe!

The blood stains are just going to be a chance for a change of fashion. Though I don't see Colleen getting too high end.

I really enjoy your comic. Take care of yourself so I can read the rest of it :P

If you need more time take it. This is supposed to be fun for you too.

Just because it's stressful doesn't mean it isn't fun :)

Gotta say I'm with the dwarf on this one. It's not that the other group turned Colleen down- they have the same right to choose who they go into hazard with as Colleen does- it's that they chose a fairly jerk way of doing so.
I eagerly await your next update, whenever that may come. Pace yourself and don't burn out, because I'd love to see how this story ends.

"If you're gonna kick someone out of the group, at least don't wait till they come all this way first" is one of the many lessons my friends and I learned by playing D&D.

“It’s better to fire the drummer before you go out on the road than it is to fire him in the fourth city along. Its MUCH better to be more careful who you bring on in the first place.”
...and I see the cute little witch with the big hat (from the tavern ) standing there in the road.

Everyone seems pretty blase' about that weirdness up at the wizard's castle; can't wait to meet that kooky character!

Lol; I'd forgotten about the extension on the lower left of the House of Judgmental Living Trinkets sign

Thank you for producing such an outstanding product. Art, characterization, pacing, all outstanding. I'm grateful you're doing this and don't sacrifice quality to rush. I thinkn your idea to post pages as you can is wise, and will allow you to use your premade pages as a reserve. thanks for the great strip!
btw.. do you do comissions, or have a portfilio?
Rocktopus 22nd Feb 2018, 12:22 AM edit delete reply
Thank you! Yes, I do have several external portfolios. I'm not currently taking commissions, but I do have a reward tier on my patreon which allows for a commission every month!

Just read through the entire archive. This is really great stuff! I'll definitely be following Marblegate from now on.

i kind of agree with the dwarf here. Granted I don't have the emotional attachments she does...

Which is kinda odd since I like playing paladins.

Lawful good doesn't mean lawful nice

I see you read ‘Sombulus’

Always thought the Law/chaos table should be replaced. Just because I am Lawful evil doesn't mean I don't Know how to conduct myself in public. I can be nice if I want to. . . But being a murder hobo takes very little effort.

Randulf is right!

Rule #1: Randulf is always right.

Always double check your wounds. Little cuts are more likely to get infected. Animal bites or monsters have lots of nasty diseases. Cat Scratch fever is not just a song.
Rocktopus 22nd Feb 2018, 2:57 PM edit delete reply
Wounds getting infected is something fun to surprise careless players who like to walk their d&D characters around with half health.

"You can't come in here?" "Oh ya why not we have money!" "Yes you have money but your bleeding on the rugs and I just washed them."
MajorDZaster 11th Feb 2019, 5:58 AM edit delete reply
And a long rest is supposed to fix that? I can't see how sleeping for 6-8 hours without apparently treating the wound would stop infection, but given how that's a full heal it ought to.

Funny enough I came up with a few uses for those judgemental living trinkets.
In the dungeon they'd probably do very well to distract an angry mob of monsters away from the party - would be helpful if they could speak in monster languages and one could keep them silent until use.

But lol most of all I would throw one of those things at Kimjack just to see what happens ^^'

Like I said earlier, if you could convince this guy to start making pells and punching bags for the local guard or Fighter's Guild he'd clean up. Imagine the motivational boost!

A 'You break it - You bought it!' policy might already be enough to keep his shop floating for a while.

I guess now we are going to see how the red shirts... err I mean the others adventurers are doing.

sounds like a solid plan, man. i think that's how things are done over at "Kill Six Billion Demons," and they've got crazy followers.

it's good to see you back, and rock on moving forward.
