Newgrounds gets it first, as usuall.
Well this thing took a long faffing time. If I could have, I would have split it into two episodes. But there didn't seem to be a very good stopping point so... meh. That musical bit ate up some time.

I liked this episode greatly, partly because of that awesome song, but mostly because it sets things up for Ichabod that I just know you're going to use later. This episode and the one before it were both about Ichabod, even if only a little.
For me (I have no idea if this was your intention, but it makes Ichabod a deeper character if it is true) this episode establishes a bitterness and resentment within Ichabod that I don't think can just go away. Kajortoq literally blamed him for the Brom Bones incident from the previous episode, saying it wouldn't have happened if he hadn't been feeling bad, as if he's just never supposed to show depression.
Based on how nervous he was when he asked Wrip out in the first place, we can tell he doesn't ask girls out often, and this may have even been his first time. If the first time he asks a girl out (a close friend, no less) and she humiliates him, that's going to leave scars.
Then the guy she actually loves falls victim to the sleeping sickness (I can't spell what it's actually called) and he figures out how to save Vinkle. Did Wrip ever apologize to either Ichabod or Vinkle for the race? Did either Wrip OR Vinkle ever thank Ichabod for saving Vinkle's life? In the end, only Kajortoq thanks him for his work, and his expression says it's a hollow victory for him.
Ichabod reads signs and omens with 100% accuracy and never once has he been thanked. Hatfield would have let loose a swarm of Chupacabra had he not dragged the group to town.
It seems like Ichabod puts forth so much effort to help others and gets so little in return and this episode really brings that out. It has to be eating him and he doesn't appear to have anyone else to really talk to about it. I can easily see this playing in at some point, I just don't know how, or if, you will choose to go that route.
This may be one of the most powerful things ON Newgrounds.
That final song brought tears to my eyes. Absolutely amazing!
I didn’t understand a thing, but It was still very entertaining, prove of awesomeness.
Awesome as always.
This version of this song is amazing. i had never heard the wayfaring stranger before this version and when i went to look up what was done by artists in the industry they couldnt even touch the haunting beauty of this song. would it be too much to ask for a mastered version? i would love to use it during a D&D game.
A CARD BATTLE of magnanimous proportions!
