It's coming!

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...

Okay, wait. Start over.

Last year, I annouced that I was looking for a webcomic artist for an RDI-sponsored project. Well, it never took off, and the project has been on the shelf for six months.

Until now.

I have a new artist (who, unlike my prior artist, apparently has no life ), and have the first completed strip in my hands, with several more due shortly.

The idea is to stockpile a minimum of a month's supply before strip #1 goes live, so that we do the best we can to avoid the webcomic cliche of not updating on time.

So, keep your eyes open. Right now, I am very tentatively looking at early June to launch the new RDI webcomic.

Feel free to question or speculate... but this is all the info I'm giving out right now. Keep an eye on this space as I will keep you posted.

Good thing you didn't have me do it. You may have noticed the lack of updates with my own webcomic


Unless the word is 'peak', in which case you should disregard what I just said.

Can we at least have a plot summary or the names of the main characters?

tidbit #1

The comic will be D&D related. The main idea is that we'll be following a group of gamers, as well as the storyline of the characters that they are playing.

Watch this space as I will introduce the various characters here.

Steve is the group's sarcastic, conniving GM. He has grand designs for the games that he runs... which frequently devolve into something less, thanks to the antics of the group.

Steve has been friends with Ray, Brad, and Rich for years - dating back to high school. The others members of the group are new to him.

Rich is a dyed in the wool gamer who willingly plays whatever role the group needs him to fill (and is good at it). While not an over the top player, Rich does love to develop elaborate backstories for his characters, and will retell stories of past gaming session at great length, if allowed to do so. A genuinely nice guy, Rich has earned more than his fair share of dice showers due to his awful tendency to utter some of the most terrible puns ever spoken by any human.

Hot tempered, Brad is what some would poltely call a "good old boy" - others might simply brand him a redneck. While gaming, Brad would certainly be a munchkin if he were comfortable enough with the rules to mix/max that well. Brad loves to play big, strong fighter types (stereotypical barbarians, paladins, etc - those that require little thinking) that carry huge weapons. The more damage, the better!

A prototypical "real roleplayer", Amy loves to immerse herself into games through her character's personality and story. She is every DM's dream - a player who enjoys reading about the campaign setting, and who commits even the smallest detail of the game world to heart.

Amy puts a lot of thought into her character's development, motivation, interests, and such. As a result, she tends to get annoyed with the guys for their lack of serious attention to the game.

The grizzled old guy of the group, Tim possesses a warped sense of humor. While Tim lives to throw the proverbial monkeywrench into the DM's plans, he'll settle with harassing other players.

Tim is a smart player, with a systematic approach to in-game problems. He keeps detailed maps of the adventures in an effort to avoid any "we forgot where that was" moments.

Tim has a preference for playing wizards.

Ray is... different. Some might label him an oddball or loony, and pretty much anyone can see his munchkin tendencies. Ray will participate in the plot very seriously, but if he becomes bored, he will not hesitate to bring things to a screeching halt with insane humor or rules lawyering.

While Ray enjoys gaming, he seems to enjoy disrupting the game equally well. He is perpetually late to everything, and is known to be very particular with new character concepts.

No need for that. I haven't given the staff sneak peeks either.

This thread has one purpose: to tease the comic, and to raise awareness for it.

Wait, aren't those the same thing?

How about telling us who the artist is? Or at least if he is a member of the Inn or not?

I can do that. That artist is TL Jackson, aka lolkat. He is not currently a member of the Inn, though I expect that will be corrected before we go live.

concept art

Next week, I will begin posting concept art of the characters. I'll do one every few days, leading up to launch.

It would be cool if.....

the comic was done 'Doonsbury' style, where instead of a contemporary commentary on real life in the world, it would be a comical contemporary commentary on the games and activities of the inn with members as characters.
