    Phil, were can I find your interview with the Rogue Council (the fansite not the actual group of disembodied mage’s of course)?

    This piece of work has eluded me for some time and I’d like to see if I can find it.

    By the way, thanks for your great advice on writing, it’s really been helpful.

    P.S. Good luck with your work on the Mage 20th anniversary edition, I really look forward to seeing your work.

    Take care and all the best.

    Hey Satyr,
    Recently I came across mention of your webcomic, Arpeggio. I liked the description I’d seen, but the site is offline. So, I checked it out on the Wayback Machine, but it looks like most of the panels weren’t saved. After more digging, I ran across your LiveJournal, which hosted the first five pages. Again, I like what I see, but I can’t seem to find it hosted anywhere (though since “arpeggio” seems to be a relatively common word, neither it nor “arpeggio webcomic” help much with Google).
    Is there anywhere you’re still hosting it? Or failing that, is it stored somewhere publicly available, like or Dropbox?

    • Satyr says:

      Thanks, Durpady. And sadly not. The cost of hosting the comic became too expensive, and with no money coming in, money still going out, and the realization that Bryan and I could not continue the comic due to our other commitments, I decided to just take it down altogether.

      That said, we ARE considering making the Arpeggio archives available once my Patraeon campaign goes live. There just needs to be some kind of income to offset the cost of keeping the comic online.

  4. Satyros;

    we, on behalf of the artist Otacílio Melgaço, are contacting all those who acquired some of his works through the Bandcamp. In order to establish a closer link.

    It´ll be an honor to receive your manifestations in the form of reviews, comments, questions, suggestions etc. Everything will be forwarded directly to the composer/multi-instrumentalist and will have a reply also by the own.

    Welcome, Mr. Brucato.
