    Haha, a callback already? How long ago was the ‘vampires do not buy train tickets’ chapter published?
    Is that tram pass made of paper? Is there still paper in the future? Actually, is there still paper now? I always use digital magnetic passes for my public transportation.

    Also, thanks for the reminder about the email, it totally slipped my mind!

    The reference was in chapter 1 pg 26, which was posted in July of 2011. And actually Karma made X go and buy the ticket, but they never used it.

    The trampass is made of a ‘smart paper’ substance. It is impregnated with certain polymers that it can be digitally ‘written’ to. It also can’t be torn and doesn’t wrinkle in people’s pockets. The one Karma has is a temporary, one use pass. Permanent passes are plastic cards with tap chips. You can also pay with your phone/smartlink.

    Actually, yes, there is still paper now. In Vancouver, BC, when you buy a one use transfer ticket for the skytrain, it is still made of paper.

    Uh, wow. I did not expect that much backstory to a train ticket. This sounds pretty cool!

    Haha, now I wish I could see X standing in line to buy the ticket, grumbling and glaring at the little old lady paying in small change.

    Losing a tram ticket wasn’t very good karma, Karma.

    Careful with that hand thing, I’ve noticed several webcomics get in serious trouble due to hand and wrist issues, just as a partial list, Order of the Stick(got cut), Paradigm Shift(carpel tunnel), and Keychain of Creation(carpel tunnel, on extremely long haitus, hopefully).

    So you should probably get that looked at sooner rather than later, would probably lead to less downtime in the long run.

    I know its pretty serious. I’ve had issue with it before. Unfortunately my day job revolves around me using the computer so its hard to break completely from doing anything with my wrist. I am splinting it at night, and when it is really bugging me. Icing it, taking advil or alieve when necessary. But it does limit the time I can hold the pen, so I’m trying to listen to my body when its had enough and not pushing beyond a point, which is just slowing me down. But then I get it to Che late, and her work schedule is all weird, and it cascades into next week. :/ Even a day late on my part can cause the comic to be pushed several days late.

    Hey Shadowsmyst,

    You should ice too(15 minutes on, 15 minutes off during waking hours, never when asleep). You say you think it is tendonitis(itis is inflammation). Inflammation treatment that works for repetitive injuries is ice, splint(as you are doing), elevate, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen can be extremely helpful. I hope these help with the pain and help prevent the worsening of your stress injury. Though do what feels right to you, I am no doctor(yet).

    I wish I could do more for you and hope your wounds heal soon.

    much love,
    Lycaon
    and I am sure Neuria, my sister, feels the same

    PS: Been long time reader and everytime I look at your artwork it puts the biggest smile on my face.

    Hey, Myst. You should try out this stuff: http://www.sombrausa.com/ I use it for my arthritis and we put it on my husbands back for his herniated disc. It tends to help out a lot.

    I’m hope your hands feel better soon.

    On note of the comic, I’m guessing Karma applies more then just a name to him and it works both ways.

    Does this mean he’s spent the good karma he got for buying a tram ticket?
    As for the poll, I’ve never RP’ed before but I would not be opposed to trying something new 🙂

    Wow, I hope you’re doing okay Che. I know about pain, I’ve been taking hydrocodone for 5 years now, 30mg a day. Bad back and leg pains all the time, pills are the only thing keeping me functioning…. allergic to mj or I’d move to a state that has medicinal mj laws and try it (makes me hurl).
    I hope you find something that helps you, not so you can get back to making this wonderful comic, but because someone with such a gift shouldn’t be in pain.

    Thank you for posting that link. I’m happy that there is news, and the news is good 🙂
    Does this mean that the wrist pain is gone? I hate to think that you are suffering for us.

    ShadowsMyst Reply:

    My wrist is better, most of things was family and friend drama coupled with some event obligations I had made about a year ago I didn’t quite expect to come down on my head like it did. There’s still family drama, but friend stuff is sorting itself out and event stuff is done for now.
