The latest incentive page is an art swap with Spying With Lana, one of the sexiest ladies in webcomics!

It's sad that some people are twisted enough to be true monsters - assassins for hire, murdering whomever asked, if the price is right - heedless of the consequences for other people, sometimes even in the thousands or millions. Unlike assassins for hire, many villains, criminals or even murderers have standards or lines they won't cross.

Violence usually begets more violence. Inkahrah may have cared for Sellah and possibly her husband. But she did not empathize enough with King Stollo or the princess to care about taking their wife/mother away from them, to say nothing of the possible impact on Port Leamarone or the Minkie kingdom and people. Did she stop to consider how that "job" might take King Stollo down a dark, dark path or the lengths king Stollo might go to for revenge? Did she consider the consequences her line of work could have on her own family?

I don't mean to rant or ramble. But I get tired of shows, movies and people romanticizing outright butchers, demons and other dark, nepharious characters and villains. Despite how fiction portrays them, assassins are not to be admired. Nor are blood-sucking vampires, ninjas for hire (another type of assassin) or heartless pirates, with or without handsome looks, cool-looking weapons and clothes, supernatural abilities or swashbuckling. I can't understand how many seem to want admire or empathize with the villains of stories.

Inkahrah's karma came knocking. I have no sympathy for her. It's just sad that little Sellah had to pay for her consequences. (It sure sounded like her husband knew what she did for a living, which would make it difficult for me to feel sorry about his fate.)

Anyway, I seriously question how much Inkahrah loved her daughter. Consider how her spirit-form led Sellah to follow in her footsteps in becoming an assassin and then led her to her re-death in the earlier chapter in order to persue her twisted sense of revenge against King Stollo and the Vang Gaer. Reread this page and then see if you still feel sorry for Inkahrah:

Post-death Inkahrah manipulated and frequently berated Sellah and didn't seem to have much consideration for her wellbeing. But maybe that was the death talking?

"But maybe that was the death talking?"
Or maybe they have a Pet Cemetery thing going on? heheh

So we already know that Inkarah is going to ask the spirits to trade her life for her daughter's. But at what cost?

Thanks!
But we already know that Sellah lives, at least until the end of Chapter 16, so it isn't all bad.

She got a bit too greedy. Sadness.

*edit: Seems to me that this foreshadows something about the 'strange connection' between Sellah and Inkahrah.

This is likely how Inkahrah became a lingering spirit able to interact with the world to a certain degree. It was the Spirit Well's doing. The question is whether Inkahrah knew that would be her fate or whether she was unaware of this consequence.
