Happy Monday, guys! :)

Haha, do you guys remember there are two kinds of levels? There's a level of skill, and a general (standard) level; it's pretty literal. You can think of it as: one measures your knowledge and execution of skills (which does not have to be strictly field-related), the other measures your ability to apply your skills and other general abilities in the field (and to a lesser degree, in some off-the-field situations).

If people are curious I can post the skill levels of the party, too, so you can see how Cain's skill level is, as Kylie puts it, 'insanely high'. Though of course, sadly, his general level... XD;;;

Thank you everyone who participated in the 'guess Cain's level' game! <3 It was fun to see the crazy range everyone guessed, but of course, (as I knew would be the case) several people guessed the level correctly. Congratulations! :D

I realise it's no one's fault which timezone they're in (lol) so I know it's not very fair that the first person who guessed 39 gets the free sketch. I didn't think this through. XD;;; Sorry... but soon there'll be another thing where free things will be abound, so please keep an eye out for the next fun thing <3 X3


(Hawk and Avery Cross also guessed it correctly and win virtual cookies <3 and I guess everyone who said 'just under 40' XD)

KAM, please go ahead and either leave your sketch request in the comment section or you can PM/email it to me however you like! :D thankyew <3

Again, I love all of you guys so much for participating in the guessing game XD thanks for playing! *squishily hugs everyone* <333

I have some super cute fanart for you guys today, too! <3 Behold, by the one and only Karda the Green Chris the Blue, of the awesome Telly Savants webcomic fame...


<333 I love it so XD every detail, the cheesy pick-up line, and those expressions, ahahaha <333 Thank you so so much, Chris <333 *hugs* It's a fun ship to be sailing on! XD

BTW! For this week and next, I'm going to try a different update day.

The next update will be on Thursday, 6:00PM (UTC +8). Next week as well, I will update on a Monday and Thursday and see how that feels. You guys can let me know how it feels, too!

I hope you dear readers enjoyed today's page, lol. Hopefully it gave a little something to both people who had faith in Cain, and those who didn't XDDD

That's it from me! See you guys on Thursday!

Heh, Cain. Always the dumb dumb.
Especially at panel 8. He's just totally embracing his dumb dumb-ness.

It's been a while since Kylie called Cain a newbie.

Wow, great :D

Ugh, Kylie is back to scary in that panel... XD

Though neither level was represented by the number of arrows in the jar... =(

Edit: yes, I remembered that there are two different levels - but the important one was the general one which allows them to enter...
Yes please, show us both levels of everybody, pwetty pweese O_O <3 *hugs*
As for the update times: I hope they will work out for you...

So he's got book-smarts, but not street-smarts. ;)

I'll admit I forgot about the two levels. That also explains how Nemi can be so good at theving, but have a lower LV.

In any case the results were as I expected. Cain was just under the bar and it will probubly cause plot. I guessed Cain would split ways, but it looks like Kylie is going to put him through some training instead. I wonder if something will happen during the training or the delay in the parties arrival will cause the plot.

Dangit XD Cain you were my wee chicken of good levels!!! Why did you floop?!

Ah, Kylie, summoning her Inner Seia XD Please be gentle, he's not gonna get better being haunted by that face, Kylie. And oh, looks like Mikey got to keep the seals. I wonder if he would've been allowed to keep it even if his examiner wasn't very pleased with him ;D

I like all the little characters in the 3rd-to-last panel. ...If Kylie and Cain fought, it would be extremely one-sided. Well, actually, Kylie would take the offensive and Cain the defensive. Hmmm, what kind of defensive spells does Cain know? Buffs, certainly. Huh, now I'm interested in seeing them fight! XD (but of course I don't want to see them hurt each other; they've been thru too much together and I love both of them! <3<3<3)

He's pretty strong in defense. Back when she went all super nova he was the only one who could approach her, and it was because he was healing and shielding himself as he approached. Anyone else getting close to her would have died.

Well, I got the "one" part right... lol
Nef 24th May 2016, 3:16 AM edit delete reply
So, you can cram experience... And Kylie is about to cram a crapload of it into him... Not sure that would be a pretty sight.

I'll brace myself too... I loved this side of Kylie a little too much.

Cain, you is in for it now! XD

Cue the 80s montage music!

Oh hey look at that. A little of both extremes.

But man, this page really had me in stitches.
