Does anyone think somewhere in the future Zorain will get a familiar? Because if he does it would allow Zorain to have an ally unaffected by the time loop. Honestly I doubt the story will go down this route but I wanted to bring up the possibility.

The author shot that possibility down. Unless Zorian knows absolutely how the loop functions and how his link with Zach works, he wouldn't risk anything that might pull him out of it. Aka nothing permanently altering his soul in any way.

Here's a Q&A I posted on jcafe...

the dead/missing mages are soul magic specialist and the 3rd time traveler use soul magic. I think we already got a good idea what happen to those guys.

i like him to go kill the gray hunter and give baba the egg.

btw anyone else think Novelty might not be dead?

The Matriarch doesn't strike me as the type to put all her eggs in one basket type and Novelty was recently assign to baby sit the young ones.
Two big IFs here. if Novelty was in one of the egg chamber at the time of the attack and if the Red Hood guy didn't find all the egg chambers.

I wouldn't be so quick to assume it was Red Robe's doing. I doubt he shows up every loop to eliminate the evidence, and what happens to his victims is kind of obvious. They'd just drop dead all at the same time with no injuries. Also, some of them disappeared before the loop actually started. The only one that seems could've been his doing is the priest.

The grey hunter seems to be on hold for the immediate future, since Zorian really doesn't have the expertise or a clever plan for killing it yet. He needs to trial run some ideas at the end of his loops first.

I assume it to be Red Robe's doing as well. We know now that Red Robe is not someone at the school, otherwise Zorian's absence would have been noticed. Which means Red Robe is not a student or otherwise. That leaves him as being a mage with unknown affiliations outside of helping out the invasion. I think it's very likely that he was in a position to know about Zach being put into a loop for training purposes so he took advantage of it. If he knew the loop was going to happen ahead of time it's not unreasonable at all for him to have killed people before the loop started.

Wasn't his plan to figure out how to enchant a rifle and just shoot it? Not the cleverest of plans, but it is a plan.

His killing strike seem to be soul kill. That's why a lot of people and all thelocal spiders die at the start of every loops since then. He only need to kill once.

Except he still doesn't have a plan for acquiring a rifle with a high enough caliber, the expertise to enchant it, or the marksmanship skills to actually hit the spider from a decent range. So still not really possible in the immediate future.

For some reason I always imaging these people talk with british accent, and somehow it's suit them perfectly.

The marker for the time loop and the bit of Zach's soul obviously. Looking back, you can see some of the influence it could have had on Zorian, but it was pretty subtle. Not much more than normal character development in the face of something of such a huge scale. I'm kind of curious how Zach was affected by Zorian's soul fragment instead.

As for the chapter, Zorian is making progress with his mind reading! Transformation magic still seems pretty interesting, but has very pronounced drawbacks for some of the forms. Seems like for fighting, you'd want to stick to some kind of half-form unlike Lukav did so that you could use your hands. Although Zorian is obviously better off than some of those saps since he would at least probably still have access to his psychic magic. Not as good as having his full toolkit, but still less vulnerable to mages. Ideally, you'd need to have a decent range of combat spells to a completely reflexive state or be able to attack and defend with unstructured magic to make the most of it though. Really interesting to see how much Alanic will be willing/able to teach Zorian. Is he going to be another Xvim/Silverlake, or be kind of cool like Kyron?

Alanic seems like Xvim's long lost brother. Why does Zorian attract these types again?

Spoiler for Ch 31:


Wonder how this restart will go with such an explosive first week. So many loose ends to tie up, I often forget we're only in the second arc.

It's extremely likely Red Robe is related to the assassination attempts in some way so I'm worried we might get a run in at some point this loop since wouldn't he notice if his assassinations failed for the first time in probably hundred+ loops. Or maybe he won't notice since it's something that's worked so many times that all he does is the initial set up for it at the start of each loop.

Then again this is only the second loop since the big run in show down they just had so I guess another run in might be too soon, definitely too soon for Zorian to stand any kind of more effective chance.
