Interests
A number of readers have been suggesting for some time that I set up a Patreon page for Outsider, and I have finally done so. My hope is that it may allow me to create pages on a more regular schedule. If you're interested in the comic, I encourage you to take a look. If you're not familiar with Patreon, it's a recurring payment system that allows users to pledge small payments per page of content. It's not like Kickstarter, in which there is a one-time pledge to reach a certain funding goal; rather, it's ongoing.

If you have ideas for pledge rewards that you'd like to see, I'm open to suggestions.

(I won't be spamming regular Patreon ads here the way some folks do; I just wanted to let y'all know that the page exists.)

I was wondering, based on the drawing of Tempest Loroi do seem to have a form of art in their culture but do they sing as well?

And if they do, do they use their voice or their Sansai somehow?

Also if you think I’m asking to many questions do let me know, I’ll stop.

The Loroi do have art and music, but they don't have any tradition of vocal song.

This is the only thing I've ever considered becoming a patron for, but I only have a small income. This is an awesome comic, and I hope you all keep it up. Great job!

From what I have seen Loroi and humans seem to have very similar body language, if this is the case then I have two questions.

-are there any differences that would be notable

-why do Loroi still need body language? Does Sanzai not convey emotions or moods?

From a storytelling perspective, since most of the Loroi don't speak, it's important that they have non-verbal cues that the reader can understand. So it would defeat the purpose if Loroi body language were radically different from ours.

From an in-story perspective, the Loroi are an offshoot of civilizations that have had ultra-tech for a very long time, and there is strong evidence that they've been at least somewhat genetically altered (they do, after all, look suspiciously like humans). The fact that they have conventional speech and body language suggests that either they developed conventional communication before they developed telepathy, or perhaps that they are not naturally evolved at all.

So someone who is very good at cold reading could follow most of a Loroi sansai conversation. If Alexander is smart he does not let them know that, at least not at first.
