“And as our heroes fight with all their might, facing danger beyond compare.. The minions of darkness close-in ever nearer from everywhere, with blood in their hands and hatred in their hearts..Even as our heroes fights, one of their numbers have have a momentary thoughts and wanders his mind to days of olde and what could be..He longs for his love, his friends and home and admonishes himself by thinking: ‘WHAT THE F**K AM I DOING HERE!’”
Damn, this poetic mayhem thing is more difficult than it seems! My hats off to the author of this new series. By the way, when are you guys gonna offer some merchandise like “Wizard School T-Shirt” or a goatsie Mug. You working on this or what?
Actually, that’s exactly the same question I ask myself every time I show up here…..
Good thing I never listen to myself
It’s getting better and better. and it’s second page! wow!
page 3/4: after months/years of struggle they were about to rid the world of the evil forces for ever…
page 5/6: then the power went out and our gamer-protagonist finds himself in a room of a shitty appartment in an even worse neighbourhood, still living with his mother. Having no life, no real friends, no education and no job.
You sir thiink you’re good in prognistication? We shall see then. We shall see…
This does look more awesome then every mmorpg ever though.
Also, every mmorpg that I tried was overwhelmingly unepic. I mean, computer rpgs have their flaws(powergrinding, repetitiv fetchquests, time-consuming crafting-system etc) and mmorpgs treat those as sacred laws of gaming.
It’s just so… boring.
1) that monster is so awesome that i cannot describe
2) did anyone else picture them fighting an epic battle while booby traps went off all around them? like, not in a safe battle area, but in the very same dangerous, bone-littered, mossy trap zone of doom? and like people getting crushed by giant indiana jones rocks or speared or legs snapped off while fighting the monster, and they can’t stop fighting because their buddies are relying on them?
’cause that’s totally what I pictured
3) fyi – from here on out, the comic is about them feasting and telling their kids/grandkids how epic this was, while the wives roll their eyes and whisper about what REEEEEALLY happened
The rhymes are a little easy, but otherwise this looks to be very good.
Warrior Monks/Wizards [Same thing, just different interpretations]
Giant Killer Skeletons
Brawny Dudes with Viking-Style braided mustaches
Yep–I can enjoy this!
what more could any of us want?
Breakfast in bed with a full plate of bacon, toast and fried egg. Then after a hearty meal, a full body massage-THAI STYLE! That is definitely what I want right now….
All I ever get is prunes….!
Prunes for Breakfast?
[Or is that just me?]
You know. . .I like this, but, I have a problem with it. I couldn’t just pick it up from last time like a typical comic. I had to go back and read the last page, and then this one, and I can tell that I’m going to have to do the same thing next week. With this in mind, I don’t think I’m going to “follow” it the way I did with all the other stories here. I’ll keep an eye on it and read it at the end. Poetry is supposed to flow, and this way it doesn’t. It WAS described as an eperiment, so there’s my $.02.
No problem, and appreciate the feedback – I kind of agree with you on the flow but it probably won’t be practical to publish faster just because of the amount of time it takes Barnaby. The painted style is pretty time intensive.
It looks intensive, but please pass it on that it is well-worth the effort- it looks fantastic, and it’s the major reason I’m reading, though the poetry is no mean feat either.
Another thing I feel I should say. Depending on the length, I might actually buy something like this as a graphic novel. Like I said–I DO like it.
Yeah–The Artwork here is High Quality!
Judging by the title of the comic I bet this is about nerds playing DnD
Is there any other way to play D & D?
I play it very, very, very poorly!
Actually–I’ve never played it all, come to think of it…..
Okay, I gotta’ ask–
Does anyone else have that song, “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia” start going thru’ their head every time they see the title of this comic?
The Night the Lights Went out in Georgia
He was on his way home from candletop
Been two weeks gone and he thought he’d stop
At webs and have him a drink for he went home to her
Andy wo-lo said hello
He said hi what’s a doing
Wo said sit down I got some bad news that’s gonna hurt
Said Im your best friend and you know that’s right
But your young bride aint home tonight
Since you been gone she’s been seeing that amos boy seth
He got mad and he saw red
Andy said boy don’t you lose your head
Cause to tell you the truth Ive been with her myself
That’s the night the lights went out in georgia
That’s the night that they hung an innocent man
Don’t trust your soul to no back woods southern lawyer
Cause the judge in the towns got bloodstains on his hand
Andy got scared and left the bar
Walking on home cause he didn’t live far you see
Andy didn’t have many friends and he just lost him one
Brother thought his wife mustve left town
So he went home and finally found the only thing
Daddy had left him and that was a gun
He went off to andys house
Slipping through the back woods quiet as a mouse
Came upon some tracks too small for andy to make
He looked through the screen at the back porch door
He saw andy lying on the floor
In a puddle of blood and he started to shake
The georgia patrol was making their rounds
So he fired a shot just to flag em down
And a big bellied sheriff grabbed his gun and said
Whyd you do it?
The judge said guilty in a make believe trial
Slapped the sherrif on the back with a smile and said
Suppers waiting at home and I got to get to it
They hung my brother before I could say
The tracks he saw while on his way
To andys house and back that night were mine
And his cheatin wife had never left town
And that’s one body thatll be found
You see little sister don’t miss when she aims her gun
D&d and role playing games in general are really awesome, provided you can comvince your friends and/or family to play.
So THAT’S what they’ve been singin’ all this time!
All I ever could understand was the chorus….
