Respectfully, she survived a fireball and then spooked Remus enough that he didn't realize he was jerking back off a ledge. That's not exactly breaking stone golems into pieces, much less overcoming the mansion's built in magical implements that allow Detritus to teleport people, create illusions, and control the golems. We don't know what tools he has in that room exactly, but they are apparently capable of transferring souls and god knows what else.
People seem to be forgetting there was a THUD before Remus fell off the ledge along with an Ergh reaction after the THUD. Nibbly did more than scare Remus.
I am of the believe that was the sound of him stumbling unto the railing which due to the previously sustained damage, broke under his weight. Besides Nibs scared Remus pantless, even if she pushed him I do not think it required great force to knock him down the railing while he was backtracking fearing for this life.

Seems like the last pages, Tom has had problem to get the scene and dialogue just how he likes leading to small delays. But you are correct Tom schedule has been inconsistent the past months. In any case I kinda prefer these bursts when we are dealing with action scenes like fights or when there is not much narrative going on. If there is a multipage fight with minimal dialogye It would be very slow to get each scene once a week, better if he draws all of them and then releases the whole sequence in a short burst over a couple of days. That being said this is actually not an issue for any future reader.

Regarding the fast updates: I wonder what's in store for today.

Seems like a buildup for a joke, like a chibi version of Nibbly in a bedroom as a joke.
If it moves but shouldn't: Duct tape. If it doesn't move but should: WD-40. With a hammer everything fits, and if it still doesn't fit: bigger hammer. If it can't be fixed with a hammer it's an electrical problem.

Did anyone pick up Remus' mana crystals after his fireballs and fall? I see no sign of them in Sythe's hands or around his neck and he has no pockets, same with Nibbly. BTW, has Sythe ever shown any skill with magic (even a witchlight or candle-lighting spell)?
No, but Sythe's a keidran, and they need a charged mana crystal to use magic as well as training. He could have great potential as a magic user, but if he had no training and access to crystals, it'd be untapped potential.

Nah, we've seen from multiple angles that the railing in that area behind Remus was flat gone from Clovis' fireball strike, there was nothing there for him to stumble into, just open air. That THUD was certainly something solid striking Remus, not the other way around.

As for the delay, Tom rewrote two of the previous pages (1138 and 1139), splitting it from one page into two.

I think some of us were of the opinion that the thud was the heel of his foot hitting the base rail that the railing was once attached to. We could be wrong, but that's what we were thinking.

Anyone else notice Nibbly squeaked twice when asked a question?

You know I haven't seen how Carver in that thought image shows three out of focus but distinct Basitin looking at him.

Maybe a hint Carver is actually going to enjoy his spin of island of bare ankles?

Considering Clovis current state of mind and the fact he failed his mission getting teleported to the other side of the world is the best thing that could have happened to him

Better to live another day on a veritable island paradise then be torched or poisoned.

I just came back here to say I just noticed that.

I don't think I'd want to leave if I was him, between Clovis killing more of his allies than his enemies in this chapter and being surrounded by Amazon waifus it's pretty clear which fate is more preferable.

We don't know for sure yet that western basitins run around bare-ankled, the view wasn't low enough. And that little detail would mean nothing to a keidran.

Yeah bare ankles for keidran standards not so much, but basitin... Also going on his side art will link when my battery is recharged... Hopefully.

Edit: links to deviantart hinting at Western basitin wear

Even if he end up a prisoner on the basitin isle he is still much better than back on mainland.

We also have seen traditional Western Basitin attire courtesy of Maddie
