Like every year with the first comic, I'm making "predictions" again for what will happen in the coming year -- of course they aren't predictions because I know of course what will happen, just teasers to get people to discuss. Which may or may not happen in this forum thread ;)

My three predictions for 2007 (as will be posted on the next comic update):

1.) Somebody will leave the comic for a while.

Actually, this was almost in the 2006 predictions, but then I reworded it (see below), which was good, because I didn't manage to advance the storyline far enough during one year.

2.) Somebody will leave the comic forever.

I hope that character's fans won't be too disappointed....

3.) Somebody will be an unexpected squire.

You'll never guess this one.

Let's see how many of those actually come true during 2007 (it's hard for me to estimate how much I'll manage to advance the storyline during one year). No worries about #1, but #2 and #3 will be at least in the second half of 2007. Although I am planning to cover quite some ground this year.
Since the comic began in November 2003, only half a year has passed in the comic world. I'm trying to cover about a year in 2007... well, we'll see what happens.

For the record, the 2006 predictions:
- We'll see an unlikely couple. ... Helena and the Baron, of course.
- Vincent will see his armour again. ... He did, when he met Edgar.
- Somebody will be forced to leave the village for a while. ... That's the one that's basically repeated now in 2007, but in retrospective, it could have referred to Vincent I guess, who is still away from home.

1) This can't be Vincent or Spiky. The baron and Siron are pretty key elements in the story too. But since Roland has been misbehaving so much recently, I say he'll get sent to the army/navy/mountaineering troops to learn some discipline.

2) And the character who is going to leave the comic for ever is Helena. This makes Roland bitter and he'll find a way to blame it on the baron (this happens right before Roland is leaving). During his extended leave, Roland will grow bitter and start plotting assassination of the baron.

3) I have a feeling that this will be Costin. Not based on any fact though, just a feeling.

Lets see how much of this will come true during this year :)

For first i agree with Negation mostly; but i think it might be Spiky missing for a while too.. i would not be suprised if she wandered off somewhere. Happy Currious Creatures Hurray :P

Second is either: Helena, Stella, Mule (sniker... well he is a character), for uknown to me i feell like it can be Roland too(boo hoo)

And the third for same reason as Negation: Tonio ... i dont know, dont ask me why xD

*crosses fingers* Hope that at least one of the following is good(yes i know thats not a contest xD).. and sorry for multiple choices in 1 and 2 but all following characters fit in there for me :P

I'm still not sure whether I'll reach both those in 2007 ...

Heh, I got that one pretty much completely correct :)

Time is running out for this to come true still. But I still vote it being Helena who will disappear from the comic completely.

the question is... who will leave forever? maybe the theif? if he gets caught it is harakiri time! or , if we're getting REALLY far fetched, roland's sister perishes and this leads our spiky-haired self-zapping knight into some kind of rage-mode! wich the theif exploits for his...revelution...
VIVA LA REVELUTION!
hnyehehehe!

Let's see, my guesses on 2 and 3 since 1 has happened already.

I'd say Stella. Somehow I think we'll see Jonquil again and she hasn't been seen since 2006 anyway.

As for an unlikely squire, Tonio. Since technically he did get caught 3 times and his life is forfeit as a thief it makes sense to change careers.

It will be interesting to see what happens.

I've been thinking about this just last night as I'm planning out the strips for July and onwards ... I'm not so sure anymore if I reach both missing predictions in 2007 still. Well, if not, then there's only one new prediction for me to come up with for 2008 ... ;P

So, any prediction on when or if we'll ever see Juriaan in the comic?

Yeah. The original plan (when SHD-WK was still in the early planning stages) was to have Juriaan a main character, but as the story began to take shape more, I decided to leave him out altogether, the main reason being that I did not want to discuss religion within the webcomic at all, and with Juriaan (a priest) as a main character (and Vincent an atheist), that would have been difficult.

However, current plans require Juriaan to show up at one point, so the prediction is yes, it's quite likely, and if I don't change these plans again, then it will happen before Predictions 2&3 of this thread, so - likely this year still :)

The priest/doctor at Dragonore. (He is listed on the characters page, I checked :))
Hasn't been mentioned that often though.

He is on the current vote incentive picture at TWC, by the way :)
