Chapter 16, page 35 – Grace’s desperate attempt

Hello, "what the heck happened?" you may ask. The host I used for Merceneiress (Smackjeeves) completely revamped their service.  My subscription to their website hosting plan was "terminated."  They are no longer offering custom URLs and templates.  They have created a whole new site and mobile app for reading comics.  Each comic will have a new comic profile to provide "easier navigation."  They will be "introducing coins which will be used to purchase exclusive comic titles."  They got rid of their forum.  So I decided to move Merceneiress to a different host.  I already owned the domain "" from before I joined Smackjeeves.  Many former Smackjeeves authors moved to Comic Fury, which looked like a great hosting site, but I decided to create my own website.  I subscribed to Dreamhost and spent days learning, ComicPress theme, Comic Easel plugin to recreate the site.  After many hiccups and pulling out some hairs, I finally got the site up and have uploaded the entire archive.  There is still a lot of work to do on the site.  I will continue to update Merceneiress every Friday. I am sad that all of your wonderful comments from Smackjeeves are gone, but I hope you will continue to enjoy the series and please feel free to comment!

  1. Welcome back!

    1. Thank you!

  2. You have achieved a great deal in a very little amount of time. You are mighty!

    1. 🙂 Thank you!

  3. Nice to see you back, and so quick. I know the difficulties of wordpress, and must say I have never been as quick in learning it.
    There is also a positive side to this: I finally got to re-read the comic. Was a great trip.

    1. Thank you!

  4. I think congratulations are in order. Congratulations!

    1. Thank you!

  5. This is the best story I read. I admire you for your dedication to solve also this kind of mess.

    1. Wow, that is quite a compliment! Thank you!

  6. *hugs* yay! thank you

    So glad you’re back

    1. Thank you!

  7. Nice! Well done!

    1. Thank you!

  8. Don’t worry, have been going through the archive adding new comments (hopefully no spoilers, even when been tempted: comment on what has happened up to that page, not what is yet to happen)

  9. One thing during the re-swim: kept waiting for the in-world explanations for PeeTee’s physical changes, couldn’t find them or they were more subtle than was remembering 🙁

    Only got up to when Lil Tir and co first got to Saronia (and kicked Felena in the bread factory)

    1. The only in-world explanation I can remember was from Chapter 2, page 30. She changed again after Chapter 7, Chapter 11 and finally once again in Chapter 16. I think I mentioned the changes in the comments, but not in-world.

      1. That must have been it

        Thought one of them was after the taxi-explosion, just always remembered how cool it was how you came up with an in-world reason for her changing appearance when you updated the 3D software

  10. Oh, will you be bringing back the Cast page?

    1. Yes, hopefully soon…

  11. Change can be growth…you are the greater for it

    1. Thank you!

  12. It’s good to see you back. This is the best Web comic I’ve encountered.
    More on the next page, wherein Tirin the Younger is irritating the queen.
    Eric Hines

    1. Thank you! 🙂

  13. Maybe in future, they will train the guards to not wildly loose arrows all over the damn place, putting innocent (well, technically Zit-face is innocent) lives at risk

  14. There I was, wondering, why a great comic like this, doesn’t have a solid fanbase.

    1. Thank you, thov!!

  15. I too wondered by the lack of commentary (fanbase) throughout the comic. Started about 6 weeks ago and look forward to catching up!!

    1. Welcome and hope you continue to enjoy the story!
