The irony in doing a Lovecraftian webcomic is that I want to remain as laconic as possible while still engendering a sense of Lovecraft's atmospheric verbosity. The chapter narration is perhaps my refuge of that, though I've noticed in my scripting that it slowly begins to disappear, but manages, in fits and starts, to continue on. Only future chapters will reveal what becomes of the opening narration.
This is the first actual "episode" chapter, even though the continuity still recognizes its presence and what is mentioned here will have ramifications through the entire story.
That's a free font I picked up from HPLHS, by the way.
