Aquapunk
« on: 23 Apr 2020, 19:28 »

Came across and have been binging the science-fantasy webcomic Aquapunk lately. It's pretty good and deals with some heavy subject matter. It takes place on an alien planet and the main cast are from a serf caste. They're also sentient animated stone armor with no memory of who they were when they once living.

The one thing I'm having trouble grasping so far is what Eieron means in pages 127 and 128 when he says that the people of the town they're going to expect people like them to be something they're not.

Also, the comic comes with a fairly developed conlang called Sennan. Don't worry, the comic is primarily in English. Sennan usually shows up in terms of endearment, insults, cursing, or magitek item names.

Though, sometimes Lo forgets to include the translation footnotes.
