Summary
What is a Contract?

It is a deal signed between a mortal and a higher being, one that lasts for life. It is a trade-off between a mortal, who gives up his solitude and allows the higher being to live off his emotions, and a higher being, who gives up her power for the mortal to use as he wills. The signing of a Contract happens the moment two compatible souls meet - sometimes willingly and sometimes not, and begets a Contract Card that symbolizes the bond between mortal and immortal, allowing the mortal to wield his partner's abilities as magic.

Many are the ones who seek Contracts, and there are some who find Contracts without meaning to. Sometimes Contracts may bring joy, and sometimes Contracts may bring sorrow. One thing is for sure, however... The moment you sign this deal, your life will never be the same!

Interesting summary. Stupid bandwidth won't let me see it, though. :smallyuk:

I second that. If you want me to temporarily host your images PM me :smallbiggrin:

EDIT: Nevermind, they are working

"Demon Summoning for Dummies" eh?

This is going to be interesting. :smallamused:

I like the little katakana gag. :smallsmile:

Maximum Zersk
2009-12-22, 08:34 PM
You mean the fact that translating the katakana would be too ambiguous?

It could be translated:

Pray 'n Play

Play 'n Pray

Pray 'n Pray

Play 'n Play

Flying Banana 'n Fencing Donut

:smalltongue:

Looks promising. I'll be folowing this, make sure to register it as an Active webcomic if you haven't already. :smallbiggrin:

I haz a feeling that this will be awesome.

Ichneumon

I WILL be following this, to the bitter end.

Finally! I will so be reading this :smallsmile:

Thou art truly most awesome, and so art thine art, and thine webcomic. :smallwink:

Yay for Faustian Contracts! Books "for Dummies" for the win!

Sanguine
2009-12-23, 01:03 PM
This looks awesome. Can't wait for strip2.

Weimann

Nice. This might be worth following.

Ichneumon

Wrong, this is worth following.:smallwink:

All hail Elagune.

See? This is another way Elagune can make us all feel bad with the might of his overwhelmingly awesome drawing skills. :smallbiggrin:

Elagune
2009-12-24, 06:18 AM
New page up. It might be a couple more pages before you guys start getting the hang of the world and the real beginning of the story, but please keep on reading - I'm still figuring things out as it is.

Ichneumon
2009-12-24, 10:25 AM
I love how you contour big black areas with white lines, like the "vampire"-like character in the second comic.

Hyoumu Yau
2009-12-24, 10:40 AM
Yay! ^___^

The aristocratic/vampire-like character is totally cool, I like such characters :smallbiggrin:
Although some of the facial expression (or at least the way the eyes are drawn) in the second half look a little bit strange to me, it's awesome nevertheless.
It's a shame I can't hug you :smallfrown:

You've done it again Elagune.

You've created something so great, that I can do nothing but worship and envy your talent.

Where's the fan-club :smalltongue:

Crafty Cultist

From your OotS manga thread we have already seen your artistic capabilities. if your story half as good it'll make this a must-read.

Do your best. you have my support

Cizak
2009-12-26, 04:58 PM
Hmm... as you said yourself, I don't really get the story. But (for now at least) I'm just sticking around for the art work. :smallsmile:

Elagune
2009-12-27, 01:39 AM
New comic up. I'm just hoping the opening pages keep the reader's interest enough before I get into the explanations about the world.

Heh, Lemonade. :smalltongue:

Hyoumu Yau

Probably. What else could be roaring there?

Heh, Lemonade :smallbiggrin:

As awesome as ever:smallwink:!

Exceeded bandwith.....


Perhaps make a seperate account for this webcomic?

My photoshop account rules are shaky though...

New page up. I'm using a temporary solution, so hopefully the images work now.

So... they're using magic cards to cast spells? in America

Ichneumon
2009-12-31, 11:07 AM
Are they using magical cards? If so, it's awesome.

Tobi_goodboy

reminds me of the 'greed island' arc of HunterxHunter--fused with 'Devil's Candy' (an amazing oneshot from 'the rising stars of manga' volume 1).

i cant wait to see more!

We haven't seen anyone cast any spells yet, which gives me the impression that the card is the expression of the contract (like Negima) rather than any particular spell.

At the start of the fourth one, the vampire used a card called "burst" to open the door :smallannoyed:

Athaniar
2010-01-01, 09:49 AM
Also, a card is in the comic's logo. As for the comic itself, it's awesome.

X2
2010-01-01, 11:02 AM
I'm just upset I didn't do this card thing first. I like stuff like that...

Hyoumu Yau
2010-01-01, 11:15 AM
Yeah, the idea with the cards is awesome. Good to see something original in the fancomics :smallwink:


And doesn't sparkle like a girl toy.

I'm not religious, but.... Amen,brother :smalleek: Let's hope that will never happen.

Cizak

Don't know if you read the "The Q's Comic Review"-thread by The_Q, but just wanted you to know that you were the runner up for the "Artwork of Awesome Reward" (http://i47.tinypic.com/xciqv9.png)(next to last panel).

EDIT: Just noticed that you spelled Laurence's name differently in Page 1 and 4. Might wanna fix one of them to the correct spelling.

great work, keep it up.

Elagune

New page up at last.

I'm trying something new out right now. Probably going to use SAI Painter to start drawing, although all the effects and such will be applied in Photoshop.

Sanguine
2010-01-14, 12:48 PM
Love that last line. :smallbiggrin:

Cizak
2010-01-14, 02:40 PM
Gotta say I love your idea about using cards to cast spells :smallsmile:

Tenshiro
2010-01-15, 01:09 AM
Quite exquisite and AWSM.

I hope nothing of concern happens to Tome from Page 1 since starting with Page 4 it seems to have been discarded...
<Tenshiro whistles innocently and walks away only to return on the next 5 pages posted and certainly not sooner, for obviously he is not the stalking rabid fanboy type when it comes to manga.>

Post Scriptum: MOAR! NAO! Pleash?

I can't help feeling like this is a mix of Yu Gi Oh and Shin Megami Tensei. This is both awesome and curious.

Keep it up, this is looking pretty good.

Tobi_goodboy

metal spell? can i assume there are fire, water, air, and wood spells as well?

banthesun
2010-01-15, 08:29 AM
metal spell? can i assume there are fire, water, air, and wood spells as well?

Or "the dark element" metaphor or technical term for the mage schools?

Or that vampire could just be a tosser, and the elements don't really mean anything, he did just steal that kill.

The Chinese element system is Fire, Water, Earth, Wood, Metal. I don't know where you got Air from.

Favourite line so far

"Will the cavalry please shut up?"

Though imho, would sound better as "Will the goddam cavalry please shut up?"

Silverraptor

Please don't. You can't bump other peoples fan comics. Only those who make the comic can bump a thread.

Elagune
2010-04-09, 10:27 PM
Ah, sorry guys. This thing has been discontinued.

I've started work on another manga which is much better planned-out than this one. It can't be put into the fancomic section, though, because it's been hosted by another site. Please do check it out, though. The link is in my signature.
