If Gajin Manga didn't go "under" as it were, I would have made a similar suggestion to you a little while back. The only reason I waited till now was because it's just a good idea when putting up fiction in this format to have a decent amount of material to start with.
    Oh, I don't like doing personal projects to a schedule. I find that I'm usually pretty good at keeping myself motivated. Schedules that are too strict usually end up making me rush things and I really hate that - comics are built from the ground-up, after all, and the beginning is the second-most important part for attracting new readers, since that's what they'll be looking at once they hit that 'First' button.

    I do intend on doing something like 2 pages a week or similar. Nothing too rigid, but something that the readers can expect. I personally think one of the reasons OotS is such high-quality is because Rich doesn't really adhere to a strict schedule.

    Hmmm... the majority of my readership seems to be on this forum, although there are some commenters on the Drunkduck site that seem to like Thaumaturge. I've been featured already! Wonder how I should continue building readership...

    sorry...
    Anyways from what I got I think Nomen is suitcaseman and he's looking to join the tribe for one of two reasons:
    1.Running away form past wrong doings, to him or by him
    2.Looking for something to help his stutter or self-a-steam issues
    He walked into the head tent or building or what-ever and saw le interesting woman.
    And a few other theorys, but most of them involve quantum physics.

    Excellent artwork on the last few pages, Elagune. I am both intrigued as to Nomen's history and awed by the people and symbols of his home. Can't wait to see more.

    For those of you interested, the Drunkduck people apparently have a podcast where they talk about the comics that are on their site. Thaumaturge was recently featured, so they're discussing it during this week's podcast! It's right near the beginning.

    I wasn't given a notification or anything, so I just found out today. Take a look!

    It would seem that there appears to be a negative to having the author so established in a forum before hosting, we talk here rather than on the site, so it looks like the comic is less viewed than it is.

    Though I wonder what joke "fell flat"? I can only assume it was the evolution joke, which I found hilarious.

    I tried, you can't. You can hide which member you are, but can't post as a guest. But Elegune can put up comments, as the creator of the comic, and a member.

    Quick update on the condition of the comic right now.

    I've done two more pages already, and my pace is making me think that starting off with once a week is going to be too slow. What do you guys think of having updates twice a week for now?

    Also, I've picked up volumes of Dragonball, Rurouni Kenshin, and One Piece. Nothing quite like having my most inspirational manga around in paperback form to get a guy motivated!

    Updating every three days or twice a week would be good.

    Besides, if you truly went from 1/day to 1/week immediately, I think I might go into withdrawal.

    So you can upload your pages months in advance, as soon as you make them, but no-one sees them until a standardized date?

    Two pages a week sounds great! Will you pick two days out to update on?

    At the moment I've set it so that every Saturday and Wednesday you guys will get new pages.

    A side-effect of this is that I might forget to announce in this thread when they're up. If I do end up missing doing so, I'll be much obliged if you guys can give a link to the new page!

    One small thing Elagune: the word should (probably) be "Reagent" not "Regent." A regent is someone in control, while a reagent is a component used in a reaction. Unless of course the card is governing or controlling, which I guess works, but regent tends to be only applied to people.

    I'm a long time lurker in this thread, but I'd like to say that I enjoy this webcomic. It's very well paced with good graphics and plot. Currently one of my top ten (which currently lists more than ten).

    Anyway how long would you want us to wait before posting a link to the new comic? I don't really want to steal your thunder by posting before you can.

    Thunder theft.

    But about the previous page, last panel -- I'm not familiar with the convention of giving a bump to people to show embarrassment. I'm more used to see it as a "family friendly" consequence of violence. If it didn't magically appear and disappear, I'd have thought Nomen hit her.

    Oops, good thing you pointed it out. Can't believe I missed this.

    This version of the page was never supposed to make it there. Hitting people doesn't fit in with Nomen's character.

    Haha, yeah. I figured it's time to get serious with my webcomics. That means advertising too! Also, flabort. I wasn't aware you were Canadian. The script's not to difficult to decipher, by the way. At least the artist of this piece managed to.

    Chapter one is completed now, and a new page is going to appear every Wednesday and Saturday. This schedule is pretty slow, though, and I think I'll be able to bump it up to Monday, Wednesday, and Friday instead come Chapter 2.
