All of next week is SPECIES WEEK. Wooo.

I'll be releasing on an automatic schedule. My ability to comment is going to be pretty limited.

I changed the ruled line a bit on this page.

I'm kinda out of time. This is the last real page until New Years.

We are dedicated.
We will be right here.
And thank you very much.

(And have the kind of holiday
that suits you best!)
Nightsky
He seems to have a strange way of speaking. Probably related to his oversized nose.

Also, for some reason I keep thinking of Jumba from Lilo and Stitch when I see him. Probably the similar body type (actually, definitely that), even though there's no other similarities. :P

I kept expecting him to do a big *SNORT* with a snozz like that, while he talked. lol.

Love the detailed light and shadow on this page.
I'm getting the vibe that he is scared, nay terrified, that Iri is hunting HIM. Makes me wonder if he is a 'bad guy' or just a guy.
Have we ever had a description of exactly what Iri is a hunter OF? We have seen her hunt a 'bad guy' warlordess who turned out to be a psycher, and a genetic abomination. So I'm wondering if this guy is dead, or just mistaken as to Iri's job description.

You won't know for sure until next year! DUNDUNDUNNNNNNN
Also, how many types of psycher are there? We have seen future sight (Iri), pyrotechnics (warlordess), teleportation (Iri with Swordysword) and hiding (for lack of a better word, from warlordess). Possibly physical performance enhancement as well, but not positive.

Well, those are kinds of powers, not kinds of psycher.

In terms of categories, most psychers are either biomorphic (bug monster), dimensional (Iri), or electromagnetic (warlordress).

There's usually some overlap, but fundamentally you'll tend to be much, much better at one than another.

Things are made a little more complicated because there's a drug that enhances biomorphic powers, but none for enhancing the other kinds of powers. This means that someone with a big talent in another field might still become a biomorphic psycher.

Home from basic training and the first comic I check in on made me sad then the next made me pissed off, View I'm happy to see that your world continues to be awesome. Thanks for all you do.

You'll have to ask me again next year, I've got no time to even do this comic until then.
Hooray cliffhanger! Whether intentional or not it is appropriate. :P

Also: Bad bodyguards are bad. :P

Besides,
Ms. Iridium Lake
Is this Galaxy's example
Of the concept of herding Cats!
Meh.Aloe
I have to admit that for a brief moment I forgot, for some reason, that it isn't their job to guard Iri. >_< But still! People randomly disappearing from their party! Not a good body-guarding sign! :P The herding cats bit is true though, and it comes from an expert. :P

fantastic lighting effects. This page doesn't look as good as the previous page but the light beams helps make up for it.

I've never played Crys... Kris... Chrkiysyysis... however you spell it. What are the Ceph's salient features, besides being technobugs?
VlRGlL
Technosquid. They wouldn't be able to traverse on land normally so they build bipedal suits or just build a vehicle around them. By themselves they are fragile but with the suits they can be very fierce opposition. They also have a insect like caste system with higher and lower castes having differing physical characteristics. But what I'm asking is will you have a species that physical aren't bipedal so they just build them or have a hive mind?
view
All of the sentient species here derive from the same tree, so the closest you get are whale-like species.
VlRGlL
Wait all the space faring sentient species have a common ancestor?
view
Why did you think they were all humanoids that breathe the same atmosphere?
VlRGlL
Wow these species must be spread out so far and they must have been separated for tens if not hundreds of millions of years. I thought you just had star trek syndrome
Sheela
I see Garbage .. from the future !!

Spaaaaace Garbage! XD
