So that's everything right? Well yes, but actually no.

Those are the clues that they found but for readers their where some fourth wall braking clues. Most of them I didn't expect readers to find as they are often convoluted.

First the twin twist:
The title "The Thieves of all kingdoms" and the name of the inn "The obedient animal kingdom" Both can be worked into the acronym "T.O.A.K" which in turn and be used to represent "Two of a Kind".

Next the twins hair was reversed. The one doing the bad deeds has half a head of hair well the one laying to people had a whole head of hair. Half the truth vs whole truth.

And finely many people called out the overly friendly nature of the Innkeeper. Good job! But here something else, The Innkeeper has the same eyelash design as Arua. This was done to try and create a feeling of trust through familiarity with the reader. But It didn't work on you all!

The Inn is trouble:
The fist clue is again with the name of the inn. "The OBEDIENT animal kingdom" This was opposite of what the inn was up too.

Next Pickles! Well Pickles is a good name for a basset hound it is also a insulting term for an Orc among the kingdoms.

Next the toy Pickles brings out of the cellar changes color from Green to Red. This just signals if help is needed or not. The toys can also be seen on the small table when Tirea goes down there.

Again Pickles shows another clue. When Tirea is in the cellar Pickles appears from under the barrels in other words entering the cellar from the secret door.

Next the cellar has two different stone work on the walls. You got the thin stones on three of the four walls but the fake wall to hide the kitchen uses stone blocks.

Next when we see the cooking outside we can see the chimney to the kitchen. This just shows that yes this place has a kitchen.

With the cook we can see in the corner of the panel something that looks like grapes. However these where drawn to look like nightshade berries.

Odds and ends:
A few more clues added to show something was up. Both Times Cer'veja was drugged his hood wasn't up to show he was sneaking. Normally with Cer'veja when he is sneaking I draw the hood up as visual communication to the readers.

Also in that first drugged sneak page the we see his foot slip a bit. Just showing Cer'veja isn't at the top of his game.

And finely the noisy rope! Lots or readers latched on to this one. But it wasn't Tirea with the noisy rope, it was the evil twin grappling on the chimney to get out and steal stuff. The same coloring was used in the other two times we saw the grapple to indicate it was the same devices making that sound.

Those are all the clues I can remember, I had fun writing chapter and learned a few more things along the way.

This story was packed with double the suspense!

...What?

During first week of May: 05/02/21 - 05/08/21, GRATZ pulled in 97 votes, average of 13.85 votes/day ending the week at #181 on the Top Webcomic List.

For Week 2: 05/09/21 - 05/15/21, the comic slid a bit with 86 votes, average of 12.29/day, and ended at #182 on the list.

Week 3: 05/16/21 - 05/22/21, GRATZ had 85 votes, averaging 12.14/day, and ended #175 on the list. While statistically down, I attribute the improvement in ranking to the steady voting, as opposed to other titles on the list.

I didn't catch any of the clues, haha, but I appreciate all of the background thought into them! Maybe Pickles just being in the cellar was the one I caught.

Panel 4: Should that be 'proving' or 'providing'? Or 'provisioning'?

Panel 4 should be providing and Panel 8 should probably be walled off.
