Well. It appears this won’t just be a leisurely jaunt through a quaint little storybook town. Whoever could have guessed? Now, who wants to hear a little more about Sy’s backstory? Personally, I live for backstory. It’s my favorite part of any character’s development. Suffice to say that this chapter has some especially juicy tidbits about what Sy got up to before Arc 1.

I hear from people who are caught up with the serial that wildbow is getting much better at pacing. Help him improve even more by donating on PayPal or Patreon.
