Weaponry - Call of the Siren ~ VOTE
The vote is now open! Please vote by commenting on this post before April 24th at 12:00am. Remember that your vote on Patreon will be multiplied by your support tier. 

Arrow - Testifies against Siren as having broken the Pyrate's Accord by hexing a member of Weaponry Academy; all four schools erupt into suspicion and arguments.

Blade - Discovers the Dreadnaughts have broken the Pyrate's Accord by smuggling weapons onto the boat; a fight breaks out between Weapons and Dreadnaughts as the Hawkers try to keep the peace, while the Sea Witches try to slip away unnoticed.

Gun - Discovers one of his brothers is being held captive by the Sea Witches and learns from him that two of the schools have been working together to try to topple Captain Trebuchet's preeminent rule among pirates. 

And whichever choice you pick will also select who will narrate the next chapter as well!

Weaponry - Call of the Siren ~ 37
Thought we'd end this chapter on a climax ;)

Wow! Can you believe we made it to the end of Chapter 6 already?? Only 4 more chapters to go (and 4 more bonus origin comics too)!

After feedback from readers, I've decided not to make the Origin Comics exclusive to Patreon, but I will be releasing them there first. I've also added Extra Votes to the Patreon perks, so during the Vote (which started last week for the Patreon supporters and will start next week for all other readers), Patrons will be able to maximize their votes based on their tiers.

This means, for $1, your Vote counts double; for $2, your vote counts triple; for $5 your vote counts for 7; all the way up to your vote being worth 100 ballots for the highest tier. Remember, your votes will shape the direction of the story and the tone of the next chapter. The winner of the vote will also narrate the next chapter, making certain events become part of the canon story and other things no longer possible.

If you aren't able to pitch in for Patreon to maximize your votes, you can still tell your friends about Weaponry! Get them to read the story, and get them to vote before the deadline. This comic couldn't happen without your support, enthusiasm, and involvement, so thank you in advance!

Thank you for reading!

Weaponry - Call of the Siren ~ 36
I can't believe we are almost to the end of Chapter 6 already! I haven't made nearly as much progress with Chapter 5 print as I'd like, so I continue to fall ever farther behind, oh dear.

However, I have some exciting content planned for the remaining print volumes, and we'll be enjoying another Origin bonus comic as well before starting Chapter 7. Since I didn't have a Patreon prior to Chapter 6, I think I might offer the bonus comic exclusively there, with only a single panel preview elsewhere, or else give the Patreon subscribers early access to the bonus comic. Thoughts?

I also want to give the Patreon subscribers the choice for the Origin comic: Gun or Blade?? Consider this an extra vote that you could get say in!

Thank you for reading!

So I have decided to take a back seat to the art on my comic. I think you will all be reeaaally impressed by our new artist! Don't worry though, I'll still be writing for the comic!

He keeps his lube in the supplies closet!
Shrapnel is a very physical, intimate lover. He's the kind of man who can't get close enough, and that's precisely what Arrow craves most. They are so well suited, sexually.

Thank you for reading!

Hello, hello, hello!

After a mad-cap pace and gruelling schedule, which may have permanently bloodshot my eyes I am happy to report:

Legend of the Quill is ready for print!

For those of you who read First Born, this is the next book in the Ul-Zaorith world, and the start of an epic high fantasy trilogy!

The book clocks in at just over 440 pages, and is illustrated by yours truly. It will be released at this time only in soft cover. The selling price is only $25 and you can pre-order your copy here: www.astracrompton.com/legendof…

If you're outside of the Victoria area and would still like to order a copy, please send me a message and I can get a shipping estimate for you. I will be basing my initial order numbers off of the Pre-Order interest, so if you want one, now is the time to get in on this great deal! I'll be signing and doing a sketch in each copy for the Pre-Order, and you'll get a limited edition bookmark to go along with it, so please do order a copy!

For those who aren't familiar with Quill:
This is an epic high fantasy, in the tradition of saga stories. If you like books like The Malazan Book of the Fallen, or Lord of the Rings, or The Eternal Champion, you will probably like my book. It does contain some scenes that may be too graphic for young or sensitive readers. Buckle in for magic, sword fights, ancient prophecies and mischievous Demons -- all set in a unique and fresh setting with new races and cultures for you to explore. I've spent 15 years building this world, with history, languages, maps, flora, fauna, gods and magics, so I truly hope you'll take a chance on me and read The Prophet's Tale, Book One: Legend of the Quill.

History records that, just days from now, a tremendous upheaval took place as the ground cracked and broke apart, tornadoes spun counter to their nature, and even Godzilla bowed as you appeared upon the Earth to grace us with your art. And so it is wished upon you to have a Happy Birthday on that day....and a most excellent cake. :D (Big Grin)  Have your cake and eat it too
