This will be the 14th chapter (not counting Chapter 0), and there are about 7 more to go after this. Chapter 21's working title is "The End"!

The cover depicts the surviving mercenaries that Ceres mentioned in Chapter 12. Some fought the Scorpian Demon before it left them to go chasing after Ceres and the crown. There have been three demons so far: the bug, the bear, and now the scorpian. Just likes bugs and bears, there are real scorpians in this world, a bit like giant scorpions, but this one was a demon.

Viveka, Lares, Jocastia, Saqr, Stefan, Morpheu, Dolph, Wilda, Zafirah, Ethe, Linde, and Serpa... you've seen glimpses of about half of them throughout the story, but you certainly haven't heard their names. Try to guess who is who, and in which pages you might have seen them. Based on their names, what do you think their powers are?

Standing in front of them is some guy... oh wait, that's the spirit of Mephis that we saw taking over a guy on the ship in Ceres' dream! Mephis was the bad guy necromancer from an earlier chapter obsessed with soul-stealing.

I think the guy whose body he took over... is named... Bob? Something like that. I can't imagine it matters.

The Elven is a fantasy fiction webcomic set in the fantasy world called Theelven (Thayl-vehn). The plot takes place on the lost continent of Valdeterra (aka Thevalde, /Theh-vahl-day/). 7 races of elven explorers, two from each race, are split into three groups, searching Valdeterra for good places to colonize. While they are exploring, they face the dangers of the unknown, potential saboteurs, the elements, and their fears.

Each is under the influence of a translation spell which allows them to understand the languages of their fellow explorers. Each is also responsible to their separate home nations, and must not build any structures and above all must not get emotionally or romantically involved with each other.
