Okay, I think I have a system now for putting these out like this. It makes it easier for you guys too to see all three on one page. Until Patreon allows multiple images per update. SECRET BASE NOTES: Originally Maggie was fighting a dude with a bow staff on this page as they teach her that she has to be good at fighting with anything. Somewhere along the way I came across an amazing "stick fighting" video and I recalled I used to do something similar with friends in high school. But now I know the name of the martial art from the Philippines known as "Eskrima." This video at around the 1:40 mark, the master and student are going so fast it's almost comically planned, but it's real. Turns out this was filmed at a place not too far from where I live. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b3RfzAyfsmk The general idea of Eskrima is being able to defend against any melee weapon, usually at very close range. You'll still have to wait a spell for the final dialogue of the story, but the general idea is that a little time has passed, maggie has a little baby bump now. These pages are different days of training, probably spanning a 3-4 day period.
