Normally quiet and calm, the taste of salt causes this Pokemon to go off-the-shits feral.
A painted sunset stretches across the sky of a cool summer evening, and the world is dying. Only Malachi, a partially evolved Shinx appointed by "Maelstrom", is able to help save it. Though, when he finds an amnesiac Alolan Vulpix he names Rune washed ashore, he finds they may be involved in something much greater, much larger, and much more sinister than either of them bargained for.

[Reboot started May 25th, 2017 |
Originally started December 16th, 2014]

A Pokémon known for its harsh gaze and sharp tongue. Despite its rough exterior, it is friendlier than it looks.

She's like a sea urchin. Tough and prickly on the outside, but delicate and easily wounded if hit the wrong way. Please handle gently.
Shoot I forgot to comment last time I was here! I am very very VERY happy to see that OBT has finally made it over to the new forums! :D I'm really excited for this comic, especially since it's the only dungeonlocke I'm currently aware of. That new prologue was- WOWZA! I can't wait to see more!!!

It's here! Your art is always so aesthetically pleasing, with those pastel colors and soft squishy shapes and that papery texture that goes under everything. Interesting that you're redoing chapter 1, refreshing the reboot of sorts, but if it makes you happier with your story then I am all for it. It'll be interesting to see what you've changed, too.

🔹UPDATE!🔹

After a million years I finally got enough free time with uni to update!


@Pika Aaaah thank you so much! I'm very excited about how far I've come.
@MouseWithADinosaurTail Aw, thank you!
@Dee Happy to finally be on the forums again! I'm hoping to update more regularly soon.
@Hallow Aw wow thank you! I'm so excited about how far this comic has come, and I can't wait to show off some of the changes in the story!
@Kadew I'm definitely excited to show off some of the changes I've made! The script for chapter 1 got a nice new coat of paint to give characters some more personality and tweak some aspects of the story.

The facelift! It's here! Comparing it to the old start, there's a lot the same about this very first page, but also, so much different. All that artstyle and composition improvement aside, the change in voiceover is really standing out to me. Last time was just Malachi's internal struggle against his weenieness. Now we have mysterious blue boxtext speaking of champions. It really sets an entirely different tone. I'm extra excited to see what else you've changed, now!

i am SO interested in how malachi is going to interact with this power throughout the story and how he will eventually explain what's going on.. or if he even knows what's going on! cant wait to see how the reboot (is this technically the second one now?) handles... well, everything

Okay but how did I miss this thread though?? I love your comic! I believe I've been following it either on dA or smackjeeves for some time now, but guess it's time to move my comments over here! :D

And you're remaking the first chapter? That's like the perfect opportunity for me to come in here! \o/
I hope you'll have fun doing it! That prologue LOOKS SO FUCKIN AMAZING I SWEAR- like, that water and thunder panel??? holy crap!!
Compared to the old first page, this one looks soooo much better as well! Your improvement is gosh darn awesome?? And the tone is very different too… I'm excited!! :D

((if it wasn't obvious already, imma follow this thread))

Autistic writer who starts more things than she finishes. Hyper asexual Twitch Plays Pokemon lorewriter. Rather be a happy shill than an angry critic.
The artwork is fantastic, the narration is intriguing, and I like how Malachi is more of a Luxcio/Shinx fusion than one of either (although I will admit that when I first read this comic, I didn't realize he was a dude). Looking forward to seeing where you take this!

🔹DOUBLE UPDATE!🔹

Because I love you all so much (and also forgot to post a nearly finished page lmao)




@Kadew I'm excited for all the deviations I get to show off as the chapter rolls on! Some stuff is somewhat significant retconning, with some tweaks along the way since I'm able to make them.
@Hallow Oh Malachi and Maelstrom have.... Interactions, for sure :3c And it's a sort of pseudo-reboot! I'm just redoing Chapter 1 since there's some stuff I wanted to retcon, when I have time I may update Malachi's design in Chapter 2 to match his new design since previously he leaned waaay too much into Luxio/Luxray territory instead of Shinx.
@Rubombee Aaaa thank you!! I was just gonna reupload the old chapter 1 pages and then realized the new forums would be the perfect opportunity to get the new chapter facelift out before I release it on other mirrors!
@Dee Aw, thanks! The colors have been fun to work with.
@Trollkitten Aw thanks! I'm definitely excited about working on this.

I like how Malachi has to deal with the Guild not recognizing whether he's a Luxio or a Shinx. It just feels so real.

An ordinary dairy product. Dislikes conflict, and does whatever he can to bring happiness to others.
Kinda digging the shift to making Malachi a bit more frustrated and irritated over how I remember him reacting before.

Oh dang this is a Malachi redesign. I like it a lot! Feels a lot more like awkward middleground rather than smallish luxio. Redoing him in all of chapter 2 sounds like it'll be a pain though, if you end up going that route.

the relatability of these three pages . is so high. malachi here is like my brain when pokemon games ask me if im a boy or girl im just like " i dont feel like this rn"

I absolutely love how his face turns from like, optimism to confusion to extreme disappointment on the first page - you absolutely nailed that!

Ooh! I like how he's sparking in anger--and was the talking Relic part of the previous version? I"m intrigued... very intrigued 👀

Oh, wow! You have such a beautiful art style! It almost reminds me of a storybook! Explorers of Sky is one of my favorite games ever. I’ll definitely be watching this!
