I started roughing in some shadows last yesterday as I was winding down for the night and came to the realization that the placement of the leftmost knee is way off. I'll have to get that adjusted before moving forward.
Since so much of this page is supposed to be in darkness I'm suspecting that the colors should be fairly quick to knock out.
The cast shadows however I can already tell are going to be quite the challenge to figure out, since her lantern will be the primary light source.
Story wise at some point she ends up dropping her lantern after a massive gust of wind forces her to hunker down to avoid being knocked off the stairs, its then that they realize the paranormal nature of this particular space when shortly after her lantern ends up cracking her upside the head when it lands on her from above.
It's an encounter that would have more than likely had led to their deaths had they not been accompanied by an Necromancer Elite.
At some point Standard starts to question why things have gotten so much harder to endure since they let Vampire Join up with them.
Also of note is that this is one of the rare times that Standard isn't accompanied by her banner. She left it with Orphan due to it not being a practical weapon to use in right quarters. She isn't unarmed though. Her over sized plate bracers each hold 3 Dirks sheathed on the underside. 2 each of Silver, Steel, and pioneer era Ceramic. Each having varying levels of effectiveness against the myriad of monsters that inhabit their world.
