A gray banner reading PROLEGOMENON.

Gardener-B pauses, putting his free hand to his chin in thought.

GARDENER-B: how did this all start? aw, jeez. i don't really remember!

GARDENER-B: now, even though i'm the caretaker, there were a couple of people that disagreed with how i manage things.

GARDENER-B: they've instated their own rules about the garden. simple stuff. no doubling back on your own timeline, no moving people around to places they shouldn't be, big universe-impacting things that should be avoided.

GARDENER-B: they've called themselves the officials. i think mia mentioned them! they're kind of uptight.

GARDENER-B: they micromanage the place while i just tend to it. i don't mind what they do, though.

GARDENER-B: now, i tell you this because jenna and pedro broke one of those big rules the officials had. the officials punished them by making them live between flowers here!

GARDENER-B: not only that, but they've been tasked with their own duties. jenna maintains all the little timelines so they don't get mixed up, and pedro helps guide people between these flowers.

GARDENER-B: those two are called observers. there's a third, but i'll get to him later. there's also an operator, who also disagreed with how the garden was managed and decided to go for a more... hands-on approach. i'll also talk more about that later, since that's not important right now!

After this update, PROLEGOMENON is officially on hiatus again while I figure out moving across the world! If you'd like to support me finanically through this time, my Kofi is available there. Plus, I always have commissions open. Thanks for the support and enjoyment of my funny little comic, and I'll see you guys on the other side! -Beckett

And we've finally wrapped up Episode 2. I hope you're all enjoying this comic so far, and I am so sorry it's taken SO long to get to this point. The story is finally underway! -Beckett

We're in the home stretch for wrapping up Episode 2, finally. Sorry for missing the last couple of updates. Again, you can get news on if an update is going out or not over on the official Tumblr blog, the Discord server, and my Twitter. Have a good one. -Beckett

It's already on the warnings list, but I figured I'd mention it again for this particular chunk of story - going deeper on the subject of being in a video game here. If that's rough for your brain, then probably proceed with caution. Cheers! -Beckett

This is semi-spoilers, but I've updated the characters page once more. With this, we've FINALLY met our main cast. It's only taken a year and a quarter. -Beckett

Hey guys! Nothing actually Prolegomenon related, but I did want to throw this announcement in here too for anyone interested. An older project that I made about... five years ago this October (jeez!) is getting a redux pretty soon, so if you like ghosts, houses, and ghosts in houses, you should keep an eye on this Tumblr blog for any updates relating to that. The original story content is also available on this blog, and it's still pretty fun even without the touch-ups I'm adding to it elsewhere, so check it out. Thanks. -Beckett

I've taken the liberty of fixing up a few things on the site, just some regular maintenance - touching up the not found page since the image got broken somehow (yikes!), and adding a few characters to the characters page too. Another gentle reminder that I'm also saving up to move out soon, so if you like what I'm making here and want to show it, even just $3 on my Kofi can make a world of difference for me. Additionally, my commissions are open too, so if you want something more personal, don't hesitate to contact me! I hope you guys enjoy this update and are staying safe. -Beckett
