My, talk about stakes. xD And nice of her to refill herself there. :P

Well, somewhat expected. And that treat.
Now it looks like Nara had been right with her gut reaction when she first met Aurele.

But something doesn't add up: If Senya's group knew about the Rule of Ten, how come they got burned?

Because they ran into another group, the one Aurele expected. She told that while exploring the first incinerator area together with Danathar

I mean, wouldn't they hastily move away from that group or split up their own group like Aurele did? Or didn't they have the time when the other group literally ran into them?

You've seen how quickly Fluffy's vision changed as soon as Aurele's aura disappeared and they've been marked as targets. Whatever happened between those two groups - happened very fast.
Plus, by the fact that Senya and her companion managed to get out of the blast zone in time could give a hint that they realized what was going on and tried to spread

I've probably said it before but as Grandma said "if you don't ask you don't get"...
Is there any chance of instead of two pages once a week we can have one page twice a week ?
It's a long time between updates...

Interesting sneaky recharge, did we see her buying the crystals in the town ? I forget.
The others would have done well to pick a few up although Rasmiel still has her 'spare batteries' with her ;)

I'd vote against it. As it is now, we get short scenes of 2 or 3 pages.

Sadly that's not gonna happen. Doing a page each three days is way too taxing, I can't focus on any other things. And if there comes a day when I need to do side work (The one that actually earns me for a living and the one that doesn't leave me any time to draw), then I might not be able to do anything in time before an upload day. I've done that for years prior to changing to weekly schedule and I hated it.
A week period is a much more forgiving deadline. I am able to dedicate 2-3 days to power through the comic pages and be free to do other things the rest. The situation would be different if my Patreon ultimate goal has been reached and I didn't need to fight for survival... that's not happening any time soon. Being poor sucks and money is my greatest issue. No money - no freedom.

As for the crystals, I've mentioned Aurele wanted to go shopping in Kifort, but she could also prepare way before the adventure. I've established the dimensional pocket spell and the ability to recharge energy this way long ago, so it would only make sense to show experienced mages to use these methods in action.

Oh well, I asked :)

I assumed she had equipment since this wasn't her first trip in.
I just remembered the shopping scene and wondered if the others bothered to pick up anything useful like they should have or if they were too busy thinking about what they were going to get instead of making sure they could get it.
Spare spearheads and crystals don't take up that much room...
