Huh? No you’re not. Gaius Atrum is that guy right there. You met him up on the battlements yesterday while you were exploring the town, and he sort of freaked when he heard you used to be a cultist. He’s doing it again now that you’re pointing at him.

Anyway, as endearing as he was yesterday, you have more important priorities right now.

You greet Gaius as politely as you can. He regains his professional composure, stands a safe distance away from you, and rather sternly asks what you want… you cultist.

You ask him if he’s seen that elf in the red robe around anywhere. You’ve been having some magic problems lately, and you are looking around for any mages who might kn-

That elf in the suspiciously cultist-like attire, he asks? That same elf who has been waiting out front for his no-doubt cultist friends to show up, presumably to do bizarre and probably unruly cultist things? Things an admittedly cultist-like individual such as yourself would quite possibly be involved in? Why would you be looking for him? Are the two of you… up to something?

With an exasperated deadpan you explain that you really are just looking to get some magic help. You assure Gaius that you are no longer involved in any cults. Your cultist years were a long time ago, and they mostly just involved wild yet harmless parties – nothing to get paranoid about. No cults here. You haven’t even-

He cuts you off again and tells you that’s exactly the sort of thing a secret cultist would say. He is on to you and your cultist plans. And there is no chance in hell he is going to willingly help you locate your “cultfriend“, as he hears the kids are calling them these days.

Right then. You ask him if he at least knows any other non-guild mages in town who you could speak with.

Even if he did, he explains, he certainly wouldn’t direct a terrifying, living, breathing cultist to them.

This conversation is unbelievably stupid and going nowhere.

Yeah, this mage-search has been kind of a bust. And all this ragging on your cultist past is kind of starting to piss you off.

You tell Gaius that, as much as you’d love to continue this interrogation, you have important things to do. So you’re just gonna head back into town and… do them.

Alright, he says. But he’s got his eye on you. He’ll know what sort of strange, cultist things you and your friends are up to. He’ll uncover your cultist conspiracy.

You tell him one last time that he’s being ridiculous. You aren’t a cultist, or involved in any conspiracy. You’re just gonna go try to earn some money repainting a sign, then maybe talk to that counselor guy about the recurring, monochrome nightmares you’ve been having since you were a child. It’s nothing a guard captain has to be wor-

A…are you mocking me, cultist? Who have you been speaking to? Which one of your cultist spies is feeding you information?

Feeding you information? You tell him that you have no idea what he’s talking about, but he’s kind of starting to scare you now. You’re gonna go into town and find a guard who isn’t-

Don’t play dumb with me, Khajiit! Y-you know what I’m talking about!

Who told you about my nightmares?

For what already feels like the millionth time, you tell the paranoid guard captain you have no idea what he’s going on about. You’re not involved in any kind of cultist conspiracy and you don’t know anything about-

Wait, what did you say?

  • Fabhar

    I’m starting to think her nightmares are caused by one of the Daedric Princes. Vaermina, to be precise. She’s been known to cause horrible nightmares, after all, and they certainly seem supernatural – especially if someone else is having them as well. Perhaps that glowy voice that appeared in her most recent one is one of the Khajiit deities/Nine Divines are trying to help. I have no idea which.

    • Speaking of Vaermina, Have any of you played the Morrowind Horror Mod?

    • Hellbud khajjit

      Concidering that katia fainted at akatoshes altar, also is the first khajjit apparently, I’m guessing katia is a hero!Or a cultist destined to destroy the world.Either way the deadric and the divines are screwing about with katias fate.

      • Hellbud khajjit

        Also, what if when katia was a cultist she was worshipping Vaermina?Everyone knows Vaermina holds a grudge!

        • roxo

          That’s an interesting thought but Katia mentioned she mostly had wild parties while in her cult so if she was in a cult worshiping Daedra it probably would have been Sanguine.

          • Krekker

            Considering her past, the former moniker “slutcat”, and her affinity with the drink…
            Yeah, almost definitely Sanquine.

  • dumb

    I just realized we’ve been in Kvatch for over a year and it still hasn’t burned down. God, is this adventure going anywhere?

    • Today is only the 2nd day in Kvatch. You should be glad that two full length updates came in a short span of time, and the adventure is starting to be picked up now that the holidays are over, Don’t be rude.

      • LFT3.0

        He’s right though, it has been over a year since Katia first got into Kvatch and nothing has happened beyond a few random events that have nothing to do with her original purpose of being there. The fact that this is the “2nd day in Kvatch” doesn’t mean much because it’s been over a year of real time since anything has actually happened plotwise. Some of us want to see Katia move in and do something right rather than the entire thing just be a hugbox for people in the forums.

        It’s not rude, there’s nothing rude about it, and the whole “you should be glad” thing also doesn’t work because as much as people want an update, people want even more for the update to actually mean something. I used to anticipate updates like crazy, check the website multiple times a day, discuss the comic in threads all over the Internet, now it’s just becoming a circlejerk and the only reason Kazerad continues to take suggestions from these people is because that’s the “format” of the comic. We want the sad main character of one of our favorite comics to succeed, just like we would want anyone else to succeed in the same scenario.

        • Insane Randomness

          Ja’Khajit! Patience! All shall be revealed in time…

        • Woodledude

          He’s right, you know. The claim that these events have no pertinence to the “main storyline” is incredibly unfounded. The whole point of this story is, in a way, detailing the events in Katia’s life. ALL of these events have had some impact on her psyche, most of them major. Did you really think someone with an addiction to alcohol and a long, unsuccessful life behind them could just pick themselves up in a day and just be fine? The fact that she’s having so much trouble doing the simplest things is in part what makes the story so very entertaining. And I think we both know that the reason you’re complaining right now is because you’ve enjoyed the story at some point. Wait a while, and I think you’ll start to see some connections being made. Very important ones.

        • Evil Argonian

          Okay, so go find another comic to read in the meantime. Don’t whine about it here. And yea, it was pretty rude.

          Yes, and that someone is you. It’s not on everyone’s minds. I’m just happy to read this comic as it updates, and if you’re so self-absorbed in such grandoise id as to believe what you think should be embedded in the mind of the common human being, then you’re the sort of person I’d dearly like to avoid forever, as you’re clearly a small-minded simpleton.

      > Kvatch … still hasnโ€™t burned down.

      And our protagonist is:
      a) having problems with uncontrolled fire
      b) attempting to see a red-robed cultist, which probably means daedra worshipper and Cult of the Mythic Dawn.

      Give it time. And probably not long.

      (The amount of burny, burny death around most oblivion gates is pretty limited. Except Kvatch. Perhaps Katia will be responsible for the burning, but not the daedra?)

      • Katia ( Care ! still taking this name ! Katrina is my 4the name anyway!)

        OMG !!! I just found out katia had his fire thingie all along ! ยจ*stupid me*
        This has so absulotely nothing to do with this post, that I HAD to share this to everyone
        (who most likely already knows this).


    • swarly

      you realize that we will probably never see kvatch burn down because the great gate opens up after the hero escapes from jail. Since this is prequel and the starting spell if fireball which katia has this series will probably end with her going to jail.

      • Woodledude

        The fact that she’s also learned telekinesis, to a degree, leads me to believe otherwise, though it would be interesting, especially if Kazerad were to then go through the Oblivion storyline. Then again, it would be far more interesting if she weren’t the hero. ๐Ÿ˜›

    • Anonymous

      No, it’s canon that all playable races in TES games have 5 fingers. That’s just a cartoony way of drawing hands. It’s easier than drawing all 5 fingers. Should Kazerad one day choose to draw Katia’s hand in extreme close-up and in high quality (like the one time when she examined the ring she looted), I think he would draw all five fingers. Maybe. Or maybe he would choose to stay consistent.

      • Jirky-Kake

    Where is this going? Is this guard gonna become another significant character in this story? I would laugh if he was secretly one of the blade and is with the emperor when he escapes though the cell. Just a random thought.

    • Kharn V’endrall

      well, on a quick search of Kvatch and its inhabitants, Captain Gaius Atrum is not actually a person noted to have lived at all TES lore, making him an original character. According to the uesp wiki, Salvian Matius was guard captain during the Oblivion Crisis.

      but that’s just something to note lore-wise… which means this guy, yeah probably going to become an important character. (perhaps briefly, who knows)

  • M

    So the captain has bizarre nightmares too? Now that is interesting… And explains his funny personality.

    • Brock

      Katia had nightmares about evil kings and is now afraid of royalty.

      Wanna bet this guy’s been plagued by nightmares of cultists?

    This will probably end with Katia being attacked and maybe jailed, but the captain may be the way to end those nightmare. She has got to investigate further.

  • theplunderking

    Well… now we are starting to see some plot movement again. Think i just kinda experienced a double take there. I had one of those “oh shit” moments. As a side note good to see the update speed increase too. God knows i couldn’t do something like this though. To lazy to do all that work lol. Good work on this one and because i still have a past suggestion stuck in my head i have doubts that “prequel the animated series” would work out that well. Now if the story ever does come to a conclusion, than a video game in the style of hard rain/the walking dead would better reflect the whole “reader suggestion” thing kaz would be aiming for.

    • So your comment about ‘Prequel: The Animated Series’ caught me completely off guard since, for a moment, I too figured the same. Funny thing about thoughts is: with some critical thinking they tend to get out of hand… So might as well share everything I came up with, eh?

      I believe that you’re absolutely correct that an ‘episodic’ animated series format would be a bad approach. Don’t get me wrong: It is actually quite possible to pull off. However since each episode would have to be able to hold its own I fear that they’d have to drastically simplify the already laid down, very good character development in favour of numerous shorter subplots. Hence while it technically could work, I feel there isn’t much to be gained compared to all that could potentially be lost. If done badly it would severely diminish the whole story’s value, and the last thing I’d want is for it to fall behind on the more ‘serious’ parts which make up half of Katia’s personality.

      Now, a much better solution would be a ‘progressive’ format like the one usually associated with (good) adventure-fantasy animes. This way the focus is on the characters’ growth and the plot can be refrained from going too far off into the weeds. Nevertheless, there’s a catch… well… there’s a couple of ’em, but this is the most important one: You would need a roster of ‘equally developed’ protagonists to bounce the plot off of. ’tis important cause otherwise there wouldn’t be enough material to keep the story from becoming too one-sided, stale and/or unintuitive. Bluntly put, so far we’ve already missed a few very significant opportunities to bring in more main characters and doing so this far into the story arch might be considered too late. While it does get away with it in webcomic form, on screen it would prolly get burnt for it.

      IMHO, the best possible alternative would be an animated feature film. Since Katia is the main focus of this anyway, it isn’t as necessary to put as much thought into the other characters as would be required in the other forms. They will still need to fill a role (minor or otherwise) to provide context to the heroine, but essentially it is much easier to get away without having to do a lot of explaining. Plus the main protagonist’s development is easier to direct depending on which characters you emphasise and when. As such it seems to be the only way a screen based on ‘Prequel’ would ever be properly presented. I firmly believe that there’s already enough material to form an engrossing, well rounded storyline. Hell, if I knew all the spoilers about what will happen next (mystery-wise) I would’ve probably already tried my hand at writing a synopsis, just for kicks…

      I also wanted to add something about the ‘video game’ comment but… currently I just can’t seem to word it right…
      Oh well; it would be digressing from my main subject anyway. Hope reading all that wasn’t too boring for ya? ;P

    hmm this is an interesting twist, Ma’iq thinks that we may soon have a full fledged story here. Well more of a story then watching an errand-cat fail repeatedly.

    • Kharn V’endrall

      Hmm… This one thinks M’aiq may be on to something here. Perhaps Kharn should wait a bit longer before hope is lost.

      • nathan

        hmm perhaps Maiq is on to something, or perhaps the skooma is getting to Ma’iq again… Most likely a good combination of the two.

        • Ma’iq The Liar

          oh dear, Ma’iq appears to have developed a multiple-personality. Definitely went too hard on the skooma.

  • Nirassi

    Huh. Gaius is having nightmares and he has fear of cults, so his nightmares are probably about cultists.
    Katia is having fears and nightmares of royalty. Cultists. Royalty.

    Mythic Dawn?

    Emperor Uriel Septim VII?

  • Ask the Anti-Cultist about his nightmares.

    P.S. How's the eye?

    • Kazerad

      Holy crap, WordPress can do code tags? You guys teach me something new every day.

      • Andross

        Of course.

        It’s just only Aura Star has been the smartest one here, who knows how to use them.

        I haven’t because I just don’t give a shit and am still reeling from the incredibly fuckin slow updates.


      • You mean this site is actually a wordpress blog?

  • Warm Sands

    Just as a temporary reprieve from the endless barrage of suggestions and commands, I wanted to let you know that you are quite adorable, Katia! I believe in you!

  • the arlmer bloodline

    wow i love prequel and katia can’t wait for more awesomeness. ๐Ÿ˜€

    • the arlmer bloodline

      also i wonder if katia has full mental and bodily control code, may come in handy one day.

  • Terashi

    Wait, it really ends here? I figured since this started in 2011, it would have a lot more updates than this.

    I’m not trying to be rude, I’m just a bit… disappointed, I guess. I was really hoping there’d be a lot more.

    Nevermind that. I’ll shut my mouth and wait happily, politely, and patiently for the next update.

    • Terashi

      Also, this comment system could use a ‘preview comment’ button. *facepalm*

      Only ‘patiently’ was supposed to be italicised, to politely emphasize the word, not the rest of the sentence. That makes it look like I’m emphasizing the next update getting here like a douche.

      That was not my intent, and I apologize.

  • Kyle Hyde

    Updates do take quite a while…. and this is a really interesting update. Don’t leave us hanging, bro

    • Rage Inducer

      Err… not 100% sure on this but updates happen every sunday… these last few weeks were an exception t that because, lets face it, who’d make a web comic on holidays. The last two posts were somewhat on time.

      • Kazerad

        I try to update weekly or faster but sometimes I miss.

        Like now.


        • egg brother

          i dont mind. no need for excuses. your comic is awsome. no need to rush.

        • moom241

          I DO MIND! You have made a slight misstep, and for that, I hate you.

          • egg brother

            wow, harsh dont you think?

        • Galen-Ra

          Do not fret Kazerad, I am most pleased with your updates. Not all here hate you!

        • egg brother

          i will admit, i found this page 2 weeks ago and it was on this page. so i started at the begginning, read up on it all, and got back to this page

  • Rage Inducer

    HAH this post had me laughing from the very first pic. I love it because someone commented that Katia should point back at him in the last post so he’ll freak out and… that’s what he’s doing. Nice one Kaz !

  • Terashi

    The website really needs a link to the forums. I have no idea how to get there.

    • Terashi

      Umm, you know what? Wow. Nevermind.

    • Person
      • Terashi

        Yeah, thanks, but there’s a link to it in the ‘leave a reply’ box.

        I felt stupid for not noticing it there. >.>

  • reeja

    The story is amazing, it takes a while to do something like this. But is this really the end of the story or is their an update? If there are still updates it should update coming soon at the end. By the way what about her first task from …lizard lady…qym? Katia still isn’t done with her mission yet. Oh and if you find competition any time soon and it ends up being me, on second thought I’ll just advertise your story, but I’ve got to see if its legal to give free advertisement. P.S. By advertising and competition, I’ll make a completely different story, but make it for the people of the world, like you did, and I’ll say if you like this story try ‘making a cat cry: an adventure, if its legal. Man, I really need to read a book about laws, for once. -reeja ๐Ÿ™‚

    • reeja

      OK, so theirs nothing wrong with free online advertising is fine, you just half to say yes or no. So, what about plagiarism?

      • reeja

        Plagiarism, that’s a tough one to get around… Ok, I now know what I’m doing, so what about the free advertising on the internet? You might find a competition later in the future, but good luck! -reeja ๐Ÿ™‚

  • That Other Guy

    Okay, so, not to sully the cool dramatic sketch-like artwork, but shouldn’t his big triangular shoulder plates be covering his shoulders, not the other way around?

    • Terashi

      Weird stuff happens in nightmares.

  • egg brother

    i have a feeling the skull of curruption has something to do with this…

  • Twilight-Kun

    well, all caught up now, keep up the good work

  • Larekko12

    You have nightmares like me? Say it Katia. Look shocked and even vulnerable.

    A mage is only a human until he casts. And they die to a claw to throat from stealth as easily as any if you’re quick. Not that you should anyway.

  • Larekko12

    Like really no killing it’s bad and you won’t be good at it without a lot of work.

    • Zerithos

      Or you just invent the machine gun and go freakin crazy.

    • Terashi

      Or you just purge everything with magefire.

  • Dousiq

    Or it could be a total bloody red herring and has nothing to do with Katia and or Sigrid, he’s just a paranoid ass who has nightmares because he’s paranoid

  • Regina

    Inquire what he means by HIS dreams…

    • Regina

      Or not. It would be GRREEAAAT to spend another year in Kvatch with no actual plot movement….

  • TheBurningFox

    Monochromatic dreams aside, What is he talking about, and was there a golden light for him too?

  • TheUnbrokenKhajit

    The slowness is palpitating the tension!


  • Dragon

    That guy seems to have a crown for a beard, now that he and nightmares are somehow connected.
