After losing track of time in the village, Jenna rushes back to Korinth in hopes she did not miss her appointment with the armorsmith. Along the way, she stumbles upon former Scientists from the Institute. She learns that they developed a way to travel between dimensions and realms without the need for gates or portals. Will Jenna use this moment to go back home and leave her life at Erywon behind?

I needed to split this chapter into two separate chapters as quite a bit happens between Chapter 10 and Chapter 11. I apologize if this chapter feels short but this was only one of two places I could split the chapter. The other would have ended up with a 23 page Chapter 11.


BUT holy cow these two chapters is a struggle. Not story writing, but just dealing with computer issues as CreationKit stopped working in August which messed with my original timeline to release this chapter.  Then with work starting to ramp up, I’m back to doing screenshots late at night.

:O Holy Moly Wow That was :astonished: Awesome.... Well done on the drug effect and the timing of me reading it after eating THC chocolate bar. :mrgreen: I really felt that scene messing with me I almost freaked out. :sweat_smile: That scene was very well done I felt that one. :heart:;):thumbsup:

Loved how you turned the drugged sex into a mystical spirit-within experience : it makes it so much deeper (without pun ^^) scenaristically, as the mystery thickens as soon as some parts are uncovered, and so immersive since you can the within-self world into completely unseen things until then. And you can still intertwine it with regular sexual content, paced by Jenna's orgasms. Compliments on the atmosphere of those districts, which mix wonderfully regular slums/markets with high tech, and allow for visually very efficient lighting effects. Nothing to say on the layout and comic effects which seem mastered. Some of the images of the second part aren't fullscreen btw, but that's minor. ANyway, awaiting for the mystery to unfold ! Great chapter ! :D:thumbsup:

The length felt about right, don't worry. As for Creation Kit, it's not like that thing worked without 50 error messages in the first place, isn't it ? XD

It understand completely how it feels to be delayed by technical issues though. :classic_wink:

As always, with a pretty original setting, interesting themes and ideas!
How do you call it? Tripolar disorder? And if they all have sex - is it considered masturbation or not?

This is the most annoying thing by the way. I almost lost all my inspiration while working with it -_-

Funny enough, I would have to look away from those panels as well as I may have done too good of a job because I could also feel my eyes start to strain looking at the drugged effects too :P

Manic I think may be the best term?
But yeah, there's probably some Freudian, psycho-sexual analysis to determine if your multiple personas orgasm is considered masturbation :P

 

But thanks so much for the comments as the original setting as you mentioned back in chapter 1 is tricky to do.

I realized that I mentioned back in chapter 1 that I was going for a Numeneria style theme, but at the same time didnt show enough scifiDecor around the city. So yeah, I was aiming for a cyberpunk style theme in the market, hence the noodle shop and billboards of half naked women.

 

I also got the quantum idea from the AntMan movie:

Thanks!  I think it was a way for me to handle some character development/arc for Jenny. Originally, the  multiple Jenny thing was not part of my larger story outline. Weridly, I got the idea of the drugged part from a scene in the recent Netflix Dark Crystal series :P

I did my best to work around the incomplete areas of my scene because I wasnt able to use CreationKit to finish up spaces/cells. In Part 2, you will notice that the rooms and hallways have no ceiling.

Great work! She's a bit too naive for my taste, but I get where you were going with it.

I really do hope they make it back home within the next entries, it's time to rebuild the order and fight Neve and the Darkness she brought!

I've done it. I'm FINALLY caught up! It took me a while, but I wanted to take my time on this work of art. Seriously, your story is phenomenal.

 

Ascension: First of all, I have to compliment the atmosphere of this story. You have some of, if not the, best screenshots on this site. Not directly in terms of graphical quality (though that's still excellent), but just in how much each image captures. The emotion in expressions, the blood effects, the framing of the action. My goodness, you are a fucking master of the comic style. This extends to Horizon as well.

 

As for Ascension specifically, I really enjoyed it. The world felt refreshing and new; I completely forgot it's 'technically' Skyrim. There were a lot of characters to digest, but the focus on Jenna was just right. I could follow her arc well even amidst the many others taking place.

 

All the action and horror was seriously intense too. So many chills ran down my spine, I lost count. And so many death's were fucking gruesome, holy moly. The only issue I had at first was that the Paladin's never really won. I found it hard to validate their capabilities, but I understand why now. They were always meant to lose and the story was supposed to be hopeless and bleak. Because of that, to me, the story feels like it really begins with Horizon.

 

Horizon: Where to begin? Well, I never expected a Sci-Fi setting. I don't know how much of it you made yourself and what came from mods (well, all of it came from mods, but you know what I mean), but it's so well done. Great job. The focus on Jenna in this is exactly what I wanted to see. By focusing on her, rather than bouncing between multiple characters, the aftermath from Ascension can really dived into. 

 

What I specifically love about Horizon is the hopefulness that exists despite the hopeless setting the heroes find themselves in. They found a new purpose, new friends, and are finding a place in the world. But with all that, the uncertainty of their future is always present.

 

Then Jenna's curse came along. Up until this point, the pace was pretty slow, but that's not a bad thing. I actually appreciate the time taken to get Jenna and Gabrielle situated. If it was too fast, it would not have felt natural. So when the curse? (Idk what to call it, tbh. I'll stick with curse), came along, I knew that reprieve was over. I really want to see how Jenna develops as a character with it. She's young and naive, but has been shown to be incredibly capable.

Overall, this story is fantastic and superbly executed. Extremely sexual for sure, a bit much for me, but the sexuality is integrated into the story line well. I'm excited to be able to read the entries when they release now! :D

All I can say is the Sister Order Assets from Book are not completely discarded and forgotten.
