The AP has become one of my favorite pieces of media. Please keep up the great work; it’s much appreciated!

My one critique would be that Motemar needs more spotlight. I think it was a mistake to have an NPC (Casey) outshine him even in his limited specialized roll as a killer. Even outside the killer role, Casey is getting more stake in the story, and that seems like a lost opportunity. Looking forward to the next chapter, where it sounds like this will get a course correction.
