If you haven't heard, this year we're introducing a large new interactive event! To set the stage, we've had Guest artist Amelie Belcher make us a gorgeous 20 page manga.

If you haven't seen it yet, check it out here.

We'll be releasing a lot more than just the manga in the next few weeks. There's lots of events and ways you can participate planned, but can't discuss those just yet since they contain story spoilers.

But let us know what you think of the manga or anything else about this event we've released thus far!

I'm just really excited about the staff cosplay/interactive concept. Is it like a scavenger hunt?

I don't know how much I'll be able to participate but it's a terrific idea

I think the team numbers might be a bit skewed toward Tomo, what with the emotional attachment to the fact that she is the mascot. Also, anyone else see the KU vs. KSU imagery? It is a mythical bird versus a large feline...

Well, for the KU vs KSU thing, I think that's probably just a coincidence. :P There are four gods that rule over the cardinal directions in legend, and those are the tiger, the dragon, the phoenix, and the turtle, I believe. So the story is based off that, rather than trying to call forth images of midwestern sports teams. xD

I'm skeptical that Tomo will be all that popular since at the trivia competition, no one even knew what her name was.

Plus, Byakko is cooler.

I dunno, even if they didn't know her name before, they still probably knew the mascot was a phoenix! Byakko may be cool-looking, but Tomo is just outright awesome. :'D

I think your opinion might be a bit biased. X'D

Either way, at most, Tomo can only have 4000 attendees in her faction. That's all the tokens we're making for each faction.

This is a really out-there question and not even really mine, just something a friend mentioned... but will any of the faction challenges revolve around boffer battles or something similar? It seems like a lot of cons used to have boffer tournaments but then they fell out of style (my guess liability?)

Just uh. Throwing it out there.
