Well.  Hey.  Remember this: nashoba-hostina.deviantart.com…  and this: nashoba-hostina.deviantart.com… from back in 2012?  I had a reason for that little side-note.  See what I did there? Side-note? Piano? Music?

 

 

READ THIS BEFORE COMMENTING OR CONTINUING READING THE COMIC:

If you read this comic, you understand and agree to the following conditions and warnings:

 

Discretion is advised.  Eldritch is for mature audiences, and will contain violence, gore, and mild nudity, along with adult situations, themes, and language.  Some pages will be marked as such on sites such as Deviantart and may be unavailable to minors.  The author takes no responsibility for anything unsavory anyone, may think, do or say should a parent or guardian let them read this comic.

 

The author (SMG Nashoba Hostina ) has everything planned out, and if something does not immediately make sense, it will later.  If there are questions about what will happen, answers will not be given until the issues come up in the natural course of the plot. Furthermore, if something is “Wrong” it is often because some mistakes are intentional, to allow the pages of the webcomic and the eventually published version of the comic to be easily distinguished. 

 

In addition, the author has done a lot of work and research and has a lot scripted and planned.  This means that ‘requested storylines’ and suggestions have no place in this comic whatsoever.  It is the author’s policy to decline all such submissions.   This policy is intended to prevent any misunderstandings regarding intellectual property rights.

 

In short, do NOT send requests, share ideas with, or make suggestions to the author at any time, in print or otherwise.

 

However, in the event that you ignore what is written above and insist on making requests, suggestions or sharing ideas in any way whatsoever regarding this comic: be aware that in doing so you are giving the artist this idea, along with non-exclusive, royalty and compensation-free rights to utilize, reproduce, sell, disclose, and distribute the suggested content in any form and at any time she sees fit, in the comic or otherwise.

Although, the Author generally tries to avoid being exposed to such unsolicited suggestions, and once a note, conversation, or other means of communication swings that way, she makes all attempts to remove herself from the situation.  Please do not be offended should the author not read your letter in its entirety because of this.  However, should the author’s content in any way resemble that of a suggestion or other form of content, unless it is credited in the artist’s comments, the similarities are purely coincidental.

 

Eldritch and all of its specifics are © Nashoba Hostina, and is not in any way Public Domain.  Thus, Eldritch is not an “Open Source” world any more so than Star Trek or Lord of the Rings is.  However, regarding fanart, fanfiction, and such:  The author is always flattered when folks take the time to draw a picture of one of her characters for her.  However, if you choose to do fanart, please, make it clear that the characters, world, etcetera are Nashoba Hostina’s creation, and kindly link back here, or to the comic’s blog.  Then, whenever you post Fanart of Eldritch, please let the artist know! Under no circumstances should any content derived from or inspired by Eldritch be used for financial or material gain of any sort, or to spread messages of hate in any way. No fan-made work is ever to be considered canon. 

 

Eldritch, in part or in whole is not to be distributed without the author’s permission.  Should permission be granted for the redistribution of any part of her comic, the use of her work is never to be used for financial or material gain of any sort, or to spread messages of hate in any way. The author reserves the right to insert additional requirements that must be adhered to at any time, both before and after the posting of any such content, and may withdraw permission to use her content at any time.  The only places where this comic will be found in its entirety will be its blog: eldritchcomic.blogspot.com/ or here on the author’s deviantart page. 

 

As a courtesy to your fellow readers, please do not make predictions about what will happen in the comments section of these pages.  Saying that you think you know what may happen is fine, but actually stating what you think will happen is not.  If you happen to be right, that means you’re spoiling the other readers, and no one likes That Spoiler Guy.  In a similar vein… be nice to one another, okay guys?  Please?

 

This comic is free for anyone to view, so the author must have a day job to support herself.   It takes supplies and LOTS of time to make Eldritch, so she cannot afford to do art all the time.  Thus, Eldritch is done on the author’s free time, which means page quality will vary.  In addition, updates may be missed if the author has a busy week or becomes ill. Should an update be missed, it will be at least a full week before more content will be posted. The author apologizes for the inconvenience.

 

The Author is not liable to you, nor to any party claiming through you for any aggrievance real or perceived that you may experience as a result of reading the comic, or these terms and conditions.

 

The author apologizes for the length of this dreadfully boring disclaimer/ terms of readership. However, making a comic is hazardous and downright scary, and she is just trying to protect herself.

 

This disclaimer and all prior forms of it are subject to retroactive change.

 

And, finally… If you don’t like the comic, don’t read it!  No one’s forcing you to look at this :3  Go outside and play or something!

 

Thank you for reading!

It seems that vampires lead to snarly werewolves. He better plan a good tune or else it'll hurt all the sensitive ears in the room.

Psst... Todd? The cause of Faith's transformation might be the one who deceived her at a certain dance...

Faith: "The piano!  We can use it to judge him!"
Todd: "Good idea!" *CRASH*
Faith: "What the hell, Todd?"
Gaoth: "I just had it tuned, too..."
Todd: "Well, you suggested testing him with the piano..."
Faith: "Not by dropping it on him!"
Sam: "Medic..."

Well, that certainly came in handy now. At least to prove (or disprove) his innocence. I do however think that he suspects something rather embarrassing from it, as he didn't seem to happy about it, yet not exactly nervous. And facepalm... because it is late in the night and he just wants to go to bed already. Also, I have to congratulate Faith... I would have forgotten about the piano with all that stuff happening since Halloween.

I've never read the part of the comic with the piano somehow. :o
How did I miss this?! Must reread everything now! Reading 
Not that it's a bad thing to read it again Meow :3 
(I always feel like whenever I finish reading something, there is something I missed, and when I reread something, there is more than I remember. Confuzzled x_x)

I'm very curious to know what the piano will play for Sam. He's definitely scared and nervous, maybe jumpy music? Or sad because of the ghoul event he caused (indirectly?), and making him feel guilty? Oh Noes! 

Does it change whenever the current intent/feels of the person change? Or is it like their overall being? (Like...a defining characteristic of them. I think tragedy for Seamus, given what happened with his life, hence the sad music on page 34 Halloween)

oh, and Gaoth's description for vampires: That's what I thought of him sometimes. :s

As for how the piano works precisely, perhaps that's another story for another time.

Would this be something of a "Chekhov's gun" type of situation or just really good foreshadowing, either way still love the comic.
