Hey everyone!

Sorry we took so long, but the page is finally shaded properly and is now available for your viewing pleasure!

This page marks the end of Chapter 6. We have some really big plans for Chapter 7 and we can't wait to share them with you!

For Patrons: Thank you all so much for your support! While we take some time to build a buffer of pages for Chapter 7, we plan on keeping you updated with exclusive content. Here are a few things we have planned for you:

  • - The series of new journal entries is starting up next week, exclusively on Patreon!
  • - We'll be posting previews of Chapter 7 as we build the buffer
  • - We'll be sharing more bonus content like art timelapses


And don't forget that we're always available to chat on Slack! We'll be posting a few things there and answering some of your questions too! If you're not a patron and would like early access to all these goodies, as well as the new journal entry series, please consider supporting us by becoming a patron on Patreon!

Thank you all and have a wonderful November!

Hey everyone!
Sorry for the delay on today's page. Karina couldn't get the shaded/final version of the page done on time, so we decided to just post the flats in the meantime.

You can expect an update with the full-coloured version soon!

Have a wonderful week :)

Thanks for not just leaving everyone waiting. The comic looks really good even as a flat. I look foward to chapter 7. Feel free to take your time though, there's very little need to rush :)
(You really need a smiling or happy emotion image that fits better though...smirking works though)
Keep up the good work!

So, maybe this is just me, but what is Kat's problem? She's like either completely untrusting or totally fine. There's no middle ground. Malleck was totally evil but then he didn't fuck them over once and he's the best guy ever (whether or not that's true is kind of irrelevant). The pirate is just the biggest douche until he tells her about his childhood dream to find magic, then he's basically her bff (that tried to murder them multiple times). Yeigir has been a long time companion, but FUCK him for choking her when he was possessed or some shit. You can't forgive that kind of thing! (and no, I'm not referring to the ropes, that's a sensible precaution, but based on her expression she's still pissed about it possibly hours after the fact).

That is to say, I find Kat's characterization very inconsistent. The pirate's too, but he doesn't get as much screen time so it's not as blatant. I'm very interested in the world of Aikonia and the lore behind it, but I'm finding the characters in the story proper (vs the prequel in the academy) to be either inconsistent or flat. I'm also having some difficulty with the plot. It seems kind of without point or focus right now, but perhaps that's an effect of the slow pace (which I'm not criticizing because sometimes you just aren't capable of dedicating lots of time to what I assume is not the primary source of income for anyone involved with it.)
Hi there...
October 24th, 2016 at 3:52PM
She doesn't necessary look angry though. She looks more unsure of what to do. She has to be uncertain about the best decision to make since she is asking for help. In the previous page, she certainly did look angry though. I guess she composed herself...
Hamkonia
November 2nd, 2016 at 1:23PM
I'm with hi there on this one. The look on Kat's face isn't that of someone who is furious or betrayed; it is that of someone who is apprehensive and is desperately trying to figure out what should be done next.
Regardless, why are they going to Malleck? The pirate is probably one of the top 10 magic experts in the world, and that's not considering that he is the only one they can talk to without going 4 weeks to find someone. He should have a better understanding. While it looks like they already tried to figure it out with the pirates info it doesn't explain why malleck is their next choice.

Well i suppose it is nice to see that while the updating of Aikonia itself is now kind of a standstill at least the artists are replying to comments. So it's not like it's dead. More like... in stasis. Just don't do the whole update twice per year (see also: vg cats and firmanproductions which is actually dead now) schedule or people will lose interest. Maybe you should post an official schedule change once everything gets organized.

Was that really the least offensive way to make that comment?
Hamkonia
November 2nd, 2016 at 1:17PM
I didn't mean to insult or offend anyone, my apologies if I did. I was just speaking my mind, and while I should have given more thought to the way I said it, I had no intention to be condescending or anything. The artists know what they're doing and whatever they do will most likely be fine. I just didn't want to see this comic (which is one of my favorites) fall into oblivion or anything.
Now that I'm thinking about it in depth that will most likely not happen, I've probably just been browsing the comments section too much. I wish I could change some of my comment like should to could and the like...I can see how those things could make me seem rude.

He's one of the original members of the adventurer crew. That page does need updating, but we won't be removing characters that were considered main characters, even if they died.

It's the same with Syd, he didn't do much and died very early in the story, but he's still featured among the council members.

Also can we PLEASE not have Patreon exclusive journal entries?
I'm okay if it is something like a choose your adventure on patreon and normal Aikonia is the results, or if there is a week or 2 lag between them (like GamerCat does)...but I really don't like it when an entire section of a series (or a spinoff) is solely for "premium", especially when the orginal one was free.
Reply to this comment
Hamkonia
November 8th, 2016 at 4:45PM
Wait! I have an idea!
When you reach the 250 tier (or maybe 400), release the new jounral entries on normal Aikonia. This will allow you to 1. Raise money for patreon 2. Give people the information they crave even if they don't (I can't say "can't" because it is like 5$) donate. 3. Give those who DO donate the feeling that they are, in fact, getting something big out of it, even if it will become free later on. It's a win-win-win. Please consider this as a way to make both the Patreon people and the free people happy :)
Andrew-David
November 8th, 2016 at 6:53PM
Hey! Thank you for the suggestions :)

Although you have nothing to worry about, we've clearly stated on the Patreon page that the milestone will bring along a new journal series and that series will be available to patrons one month before being posted on the Aikonia website. This just means that non-patrons will be about 4 pages behind our patron supporters, that's all.

Although we like what you suggested and we might use that for some other semi-premium content!

yeah, learn to use the developer console, it's very useful for non-developers too. like, on those sites that block an entire page with a modal dialog to force you to do something (like registering) in order to continue to read, you can press F12 (may be Fn+F12) to open the console, select the elements blocking the page and hit Del to remove them.

Moe (google firmanproductions.com)
paranatural
Kiwi Blitz
Aikonia- oh wait.
Gamercat (not just for gamers)

You should google these as [title goes here] comic with the exceptions of 8 bit theater and homestuck, which are really famous.

I've been reading this comic since it started. Back then it was supposed to be a promotion for a videogame that apparently was being designed. Not only did such a videogame never arrive (failed project I imagine), but now even the comic seems to have been on a terminal stage for 1 or 2 years. Sad state of affairs really, it's good that I'm used to web-artists being a dissappointment.

Actually, we posted this page on November 4th, 2016. The comic has been on hiatus for 5 months, not "1 or 2 years." We've all been very busy with our personal lives, so working on the 7th chapter of Aikonia is impossible right now, unfortunately, but we've been posting the new journal series on Patreon every Thursday.

As for the game: We've posted several times about it either in blurb entries, on social media, or on our blog throughout the years. It was moved to the back-burner when the comic grew in popularity and became its own thing. We transferred the comic’s ownership to the Aikonia team (Corina, Karina, Ira, and myself) in an attempt to separate it from MADSOFT and not have the company interfere with the comic.

When the Aikonia game project is eventually brought back, MADSOFT will indeed be in charge of developing and publishing it, but it will no longer be what it originally was. The comic is now leading the charge and the game will be based on the comic and its universe, rather than the comic being nothing more than promotional media for the game.

We're sorry that we can't put our lives on pause or magically fix whatever obstacles are in our way for the sake of providing you with *completely free* comics. If you'd like to help us out, supporting us on Patreon would be so much more helpful than complaining.

I'm seconding everything that has been said by Andrew-David here. We're all just extremely busy trying to get and 'keep' our lives in a stable place, whether it be via our day jobs, personal responsibilities, and/or managing the gauntlet that is the US government assistance programs -- that last one is specifically only me, though! Things are rough now for everyone and Aikonia will come off hiatus when that has changed for the better.

If any fans and readers would like to keep up with my current happenings, stay in contact with me, or otherwise know what Karina is up to, you can find me at Tumblr @Riftytale .

I've also recently launched a Patreon of my own that gives Patrons early access to my SFW personal/commission art, full-resolution versions, priority updates on gamedev projects, exclusive timelapse videos, and more for as little as $1/month. There's some pretty sweet perks for the higher tiers, as well, though!

You can find it @ https://www.patreon.com/karinamweber/
