I wasn't too happy with Courtly Manners 2. Back when it ran, in May of 2005, I was tired of the series in general after the mammoth The Rite of Serfdom storyline. I was struggling to make schedule, and if I recall correctly, I was struggling to meet my other commitments. Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan had been nominated for a Clickie award at the first Clickburg convention, a Dutch convention dedicated to webcomics, and I was invited to speak there. I didn\'t get a whole lot of joy out of these things, because they happened right in the middle of a period when I was feeling down on my output and was in fact not producing the quality that I was aiming for. The attention that the nomination got me was largely wasted because it put this sub-par output in the spotlight, over storylines that I thought were better. It was, in short, not a good time for me and it shows.
It was for this reason that when I moved the website over to a new CMS and a new host, Courtly Manners 2 got quietly buried. Three and a half years on, though, I can be a little bit kinder towards it - for what it is, a slapstick romp, it's mostly OK. There are some good verbal moments and it's as funny as anything else with the Baron von Fieffelfalsfaffel in it. So, er... here it is.
