As Hardin walks through the recently-conquered Ermehn camp, we can see his journey is just beginning – and the same can be said for “Beyond the Western Deep”! This is the end of Chapter 1, and will the final page posted until July 6th.


Don’t fret, though! Rachel and I will still be posting weekly on midnight Saturdays, same as always. Instead of pages, we’ll treat you to concept sketches and doodles along with some fun background on the world of the Four Kingdoms that doesn’t relate to the story of Quinlan, Dakkan, Hardin, et al. Also, should you have any questions about the world that you’d like answered, please send them our way, either in the comments or through the website e-mail.

And if you have any fanart or fan works you’d like to have displayed on a weekly update post, feel free to send that our way as well. The e-mail is thewesterndeep (at) gmail (dot) com.

It’s been a fun ride so far, but the adventure is just beginning! In addition to Chapter 2, Rachel and I are continuing to pursue a print publication for Chapter 1. We’ve had a few interested parties thus far, and we’ll update you all as news comes in. In the meantime, things are looking good in the world of the Western Deep and beyond. We’re honored to have you all along for the ride!

Remember, Chapter 2 will begin July 6th! Until then, enjoy our weekly history/teaser/art/Q&A posts!
