And that's this story arc, and the second book of Swords and Sausages, complete! Woo! \o/
What will happen to Silver, Kiela, and feral Tor? The story will continue in the next volume: Swords and Sausages: Side Quests!
Thank you everyone for the tremendous support in bringing this set of chapters, which ultimately took eight years, to realization! It means the world to me ^^
So, what's next? My thoughts are a mess right now, but the plan now revolves around printing the second book of Swords and Sausages. This includes:
- A bunch of extra "epilogue" montages to follow this page
- Touching up art for the 194 pages (!) since chapter 9
- The book cover art
- Book layouts, etc.
- An epic thank-you picture, featuring everyone's characters. I haven't added any installments to the contributors' pictures since 2019, so I feel really guilty letting it lapse! More details for submitting character information to follow
- Setting up a pre-order or crowdfunding system
- To have all this done by Christmas...?!
It's another mountain to climb, albeit not as huge as the eight-year one we're on top of, so I'll be staying busy!
Until the next update, cheers! o/
