Nice work on the rain -- that's something hard to pull off well in an artistic medium. And Natalia is back!

I do have a question, though...is Crezure supposed to be set in an alternate Earth, or an explicitly fictional world? If the latter, it's a bit jarring to have a real-world, brand-name automobile show up. If the former, where is the city located?

Thanks :D

And in answer to your question it's an alternate Earth and it's supposed to be on the upper west coast. Somewhere between north Cali and Portland Oregon. Fictional city. It's more like an alternate reality of a present/futuristic day but if people had magic in a semi cyberpunk setting. I wanted flying cars personally but I was vetoed.

I had been wondering about the idea of the car being in the city since its a present day vehicle but honestly Joseph would resurrect the beast from the dead if he had to. We've gone through about four different settings of this story and he always has that car. It's a beloved creature to him, and would likely kill anyone who tried to take it away from him. So I let him keep it.

Clearly it's the characters in charge of this story. We just do what they tell us. ;p

Thanks for the clarification. I've been playing the 'Shadowrun Returns' game recently, and the Shadowrun setting does remind me a lot of Crezure (cyberpunk plus magic, although Crezure as a setting is not depressing as Shadowrun-Seattle so often is!). It will be interesting to see what other real-world things slip into the story.

The persistence of the Mustang across different settings reminds me of the 'Takuro Spirit' car from Stephen King's 'Dark Tower' series; the nonexistant make and model was a subtle sign that the characters had wandered into a parallel reality, and an unpleasant one at that.
