Sorry for the long, long pause between pages. Grad school + real life came up with some drastic results to deal with. We'll be breaking again so that I can build a buffer before we start with the next chapter (which is already written and sketched and has been for months).
As for the page, the bit at the end actually has some "effects" in the world. It's one of the ways to cast magic, though Orphi isn't using it much here.
