Awesomeness. Hope Garadaine enjoys that sword! I liked the stables scene. :wink:

The campfire scene was cool, too. The lighting was really good.

And now, good sirs, I must return to Dametreos. Farewell!

Great job, I really enjoyed it.

One question that's been bugging me since the preview pics came out a few months ago. Is that a centaur in the city square on page 9? :?

Okay Tony, that took you way too long, you overdid the teasing, and if you weren't an admin- if you weren't THE Admin, so to speak- I'd have deleted a ton of your posts...

But you do yourself a great injustice when you say that this is really a rather boring chapter- because I enjoyed it immensely!

Here's to Chapter 10! May it be up by Christmas!

Hear hear!

I loved the bit with Drakon and Kullvox. By the way, wherever did you chance upon dark grey hair?

Thanks for the comments, everyone! I'm glad to see you all seemed to enjoy it.

Yup. I stole... *cough* borrowed the design from brickshelf user shinji-o.

http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=44855

I fell in love with the design the first time I saw it, and bought 4 or 6 (don't remember) pairs of double-peg-legs at Brickfest 2003 specifically for that purpose.

I guess I'll really be in trouble when the time comes for me to step down, then, huh? ;) Tell me, would you rather I not posted teasers, and instead remained absolutely silent as to the status of the current chapter, only to speak of it when it is released... however long that is? ;)

I always got mixed reactions when I didn't post a chapter with a lot of action or digital editing, so I'm always wary when the time comes for one. I'm glad my fears have thus far been proven wrong on that count.

As for chapter 10... It will once again follow a different character than Garadaine, and you all have already seen the main location for the chapter, as its already built... so who knows, maybe by Christmas indeed...

It only came in one set:

But I never bought that set. Ahh, the joy and wonder that is Bricklink...

Hihi, Drakon only had three :P ... And that sword is a great gift, but who made it? :wink:

And the dragon.. The dragon, will it eventually become his his pet?

Not necessarily silent as the grave...

But there's no need to put up somewhere around five threads for a single chapter...

A hint when showing off the Ulmaris MOC, or the baby dragon mods keeps the story out there, and doesn't infuriate the fans like this...

*Reminds self not to sound authoritative, since he sits about three rungs down the ladder from the one he is berating...

I'm the reader of stories- not action adventures. This chapter had a good element of humour, and was an enjoyable read. Any good story needs portions like that. And all of your pictures are so clean and sharp that they're a joy to look at even when there's nothing spectacular going on in them.

Besides, this chapter had all the cameos. I got to see my fig in there!

Wasn't in the fig headgear accessory pack as well? (btw I commented on your chap on Lugnet and won't bother you with a double post...)

God Bless,

Great work Tony. I liked all the cameos. I found Nathan's cameo quite interesting.

I also liked the who horse-parting the crowds scene. I see Santis, but where's the other Jellybeans and Vikings? Would be really cool to see those guys appear in Ikros.

Ah... So it was Shadow Walkers. I still thought it was chicken... :wink:

Anyway... This was a simple chapter, but easy on the eyes. I hope Chapter 10 is up sometime by next year.. :wink:
... Sorry. Can't help myself.
