Extras and Support


I've been meaning to write a newspost for over two months now, but every time I've tried to start something gets in my way. Most notably a downright unbearable sinus infection that developed after coming back from Megacon. After dealing with that for a month or so, the leftover remnants of it spurred into an ear infection that I had to deal with for almost another two weeks. I'm pretty sure I've lost more time to illness this year than I have over the course of the last several years of my life. My immune system is notoriously batshit insane, but I guess all of my luck reserves finally ran dry and something had to keep me humble.

What about the rest, you might ask? Pure, unbridled lethargy, I might respond. It's a killer.

Anyways, let's recap some stuff you might have missed!

For Vast Error's 12th anniversary festivities, we tried desperately to get [S] Murrit: REW/FFW. out the door to no avail. It was a fickle beast that tried to elude us in every way it could, but we were thankfully victorious a few days later. Since then you'll notice we've been in something of a SCENE SELECTION, which is that aforementioned narrative device that I said everyone would be pleased with a few posts back. That seems to be the case so far! It'll also include those ~50 pages that were originally supposed to come after [S] Incursion. I'm glad I waited on that, because the scene we have planned currently is far stronger than what I had planned back in 2021. HOPE YOU ALL LIKE LONG SHOUNEN-STYLE FIGHT SEQUENCES! This comic is actually at LEAST 1/5th secret action manga. The only difference is that the gay people aren't implications in our work- they are so extremely real. I can only hope they will get realer still as we go along. That's my pirate dream waiting for me at the end of my ninja way.

There were also a few other check-ins we made on currently unfinished and unreleased VE projects. Such as the long-awaited walkaround, Wartorn Trails, Reruns, Thaumatrope Pt. 3 and even the Adventure Map of all things.

But most importantly was the announcement that RUN WITH SCISSORS will be joining the DCRC family following a full site rework/rebrand sometime in the not too distant future!

Really feels like I can't go one newspost without mentioning it, but it coming to the site is going to mark a turning point of sorts. I don't know how to tell you this, but DCRC was never planned to just be a place for VE to rest. If it was, it would have never been made in the first place. The plan with the site moving forward is for it to be a hub for like-minded creatives to be able to share their own strangely unique stories that can't be done anywhere else. Where that takes us? Who knows! But this is only the start of many future collaborations. New stories unbound by medium that are helmed not only by me, but by other team members and extraordinary talent who deserve a place without creative limits or labels. Except the DCRC label- that one is cool.

On the subject of breaking the artistic bank, the VEMT has put out two (relatively) new releases! Magnum Opus and Faux Dramatica are both up on the comic's Bandcamp and the DCRC Music Player, respectively.

If you have the spare time, give the release stream VOD for Faux Dramatica a watch. Rom did an impeccable job making the stream an experience unlike anything else we've done for the comic before. We occasionally stream on the DCRC Twitch channel if there's something interesting or important to show off, so feel free to follow that if you want.

And since we're nearing the middle of the year, I feel a little beholden to give a general kind of look through of what's cooking behind the scenes.


P.S I am going to be at Colossalcon in Sandusky, OH from May 31st-June 4th! Hanging in the artist's alley, signing autographs, doodling, taking pics, selling buttons and prints, you know how it goes. All of you are required to come out and give me your finest Repitonian representation. One of you have to do White Noise eventually; it's a matter of when, not if.


The news is that I will be attending Megacon from March 30th to April 2nd, yet again poised deep into the swampy, mouse-controlled sweat central of Florida: Orlando.

Joining me as my entourage this go around will be our very own Tyson! You may know him from the sakugabooru recognized animation that portions of our comic are now well regarded for. Rick and Chase will also be joining as per usual too! They're very good sports about basically letting us piggyback with them and hog their booth whenever they aren't efficiently speedrunning through setup in the artist's alley.

Speaking of art! The con-exclusive buttons got tossed out like cheap cigars wrapped in hotcakes, so we might do something similar this time! What exactly will that be? Perhaps... come to the con to find out? At worst, we will definitely have some milquetoast buttons for fans who are less quick on the draw and worthy of our grace.

Haha, just kidding. We love you guys! Not you, though. You know what you did.

Also, if you're an astute watcher of dates, you and your fellow impatient cohorts have probably recognized that Vast Error's twelve year anniversary is fast approaching. No, don't trouble yourself reminding us, we could never forget. We're working ourselves to the bone in the background and have been for the past couple months. If last year was a breather, then this year is going to be yet another high-octane roller-coaster of drops, announcements and shit to clean out of your pants.

Clear your schedule for the day! Actually, clear your next two weeks. We're about to get CELEBRATORY.


Time to interrupt your patient waiting with some "News" and "Announcements". As you can see by the progress bar above, we are ticking right along. Finalized assets are dropping in, and are being slammed into the animation timeline just as quickly. Stuff Is Happening. Here, have some teaser proof of Stuff Happening:

The plan is to release the animation and then take one last buffer for a week (give or take) in order to start going hard on thumbs and sketches. After that? We will be back to our 2-6 day update schedule for the foreseeable (by which we mean probable) future.

Speaking of Stuff Happening, we've actually got some pretty exciting news for you all! Specifically: news regarding the website. The one you're probably reading this news post on.

After a number of years talking about it, we're finally moving ahead with the DCRCv2 site rewrite.

We've made a publicly available Patreon post detailing the site's history and the planned changes coming with DCRCv2 that you can read right here.

And finally, on a smaller note, we've opened the DCRC Wiki back up to account creation. If you've been itching to make an account to update the DCRC Wiki with info about how ██████ and ██████ ███ in Snowbound Blood: Volume Twelve, now's your chance.


I'll be attending Holiday Matsuri from December 16-18th (this weekend!) in Orlando, the heart of the Devil's Armpit AKA Florida.

I'm piggybacking yet again with our good pals Rick and Chase of Run With Scissors fame for some Meet N' Greet action. If you can brave being in temperate weather during Winter, you should come see us!

I haven't been to a convention in over six years, and I've never been to one as anything more than a guest, so this will be very new to me! If any Vast Error fans want to push their luck, I'll be armed to the teeth with throwable merchandise like FREE CON-EXCLUSIVE BUTTONS and will forcibly placate them with crudely drawn doodles of their favorite characters holding each other tenderly in a metacanonical embrace. Keep an eye on my Twitter throughout the coming days for more information!

Here's some other stuff to consider while you slack off through the holiday season:

1) Did you listen to our Hollownull album? You should have. Also relisten to Corporate Holiday Hits again. Tis the season.

2) New merch will be available to pre-order at [email protected] on December 16th too! This will also be when our Redbubble finally closes for good. Restocks and send offs will happen between January and February.

3) The upcoming animation is nearly 50% complete! It's already been about two months since the last update, but this has wound up being more jam-packed and technically complex than anything else in the comic with the exception of EOA2 (maybe).

Just keep being patient! Good things always take time.


Oh yeah, it's animation time. We haven't a major one since Incursion, and I think this is really the only way to collect all of the broken probability shards left in the wake of all this Alt!Murrit mania. We have more animators and artists than ever to bring these spectacles to life, so we're aiming to really play with the visuals and formatting on this one! Much like how the comic's art style evolves in eras over time, I feel like this will mark the start of the next generation of animated troll goodness. You should be very, very excited.

This is also going to be the final appearance of True Murrit in this act! So I hope these latest sections of the comic gave you enough of the definitive funny hentai fish to last you a while. As for less definitive funny hentai fish? You'll just have to wait and see...

Alright, let's mosey on down the list of what you can expect from DCRC for the rest of the year and beyond.

THE COMIC - After the animation, we'll back on schedule with consistent updates every few days again. From here on, the comic is mostly going to be progression, progression, progression- shoveling plot coal into the narrative tank engine and chugging along, full steam ahead.  A3A1 hasn't been easy on me! When Sova talked about the middle of a story being the hardest to write for, she wasn't kidding. It's no small feat to string a story along the way VE needs it to be done. You're constantly worried about putting things up too early, or too late.

This half of the act is really meant to be about expansion to the initial acts setup above all else. Fleshing out the main cast, their relationships and the functions of The Game and The Hyperthetical at large. I like to look at it as a slow build of information and tension until everything comes together and collapses in on itself. But I do think we could do with a little more balance. So we're going to focus on the (relative) present moving forward, and try to work in jumps and backstory more intermittently into that rather than separating them in big chunks. We actually have a very neat framing device for this after the animation, and I think it'll please just about everyone.

SNOWBOUND BLOOD - We really wanted Vol. 12 and the epilogue to be out much sooner, but it hasn't panned out exactly the way we had hoped. There have been a lot of roadblocks keeping the game from being finished as initially intended, and there wasn't much to be done about it on our end. There hasn't been many updates because there hasn't many developments, I'm afraid.

Vol. 12 is fully written and most of the assets are complete, but the epilogue is very behind schedule. Because of that, instead of releasing both at once, we're going to drop Vol. 12 as a standalone release in the very near future and try our best to put out the epilogue in early 2023. The OST will also be released on our music platforms when the epilogue is out. I'm sure that's disappointing to hear, and we want the game to be wrapped up just as much as you all do. We really appreciate your patience!

THAUMATROPE - Currently on break with no definite return date. Haustoria commentary is in the works and will be sold when it's completed. Xam made an extremely robust fantroll creator in the meantime! Do yourself a favor and check all that out. You might find some familiar looks in there!

MUSIC - We're currently working on a Halloween album! Or, as the repitonians call it: HOLLOWNULL. Unlike the Yulepassing album, this one is a concept record! It features Serpaz as the leading lady, it takes place in a bizarre probability, and will have some writing and voice acting attached. That's all I'm willing to say about it!

After that, the next record will be Volume 6. But after Volume 6 releases, we're going to pump the brakes on major volumes for a while again as the comic builds a backlog. 2023 is looking like it's going to be a year full of side projects and solo albums! Speaking of, Reminders Of You is still in the works! Don't worry, we haven't forgotten about it.

MISCELLANEOUS - The WALKAROUND is still being written and designed. It's been strong progress, but the comic will still need to take a break so we can work on it full time when its moment comes. RPG's have a lot going on! RERUNS is going to be internally overhauled before we get back to it, but it will still happen eventually. It's just not a high priority. WARTORN TRAILS is still in pre-production. We'll be handling its release differently compared to its predecessor, more on that when SBB wraps.

Site development, updating the adventure map and flash restoration are being worked on very slowly because we can't dedicate time to it over actual comic work, but it's always on the list. We might also do another Cast AMA and give you all a little something for the holidays, but no promises.

There are a couple other announcements that I could make here, but they would be better saved for their own posts down the line. For now? Enjoy your ALT!PAUSE.
