View Full Version : So let's try out one of those interactive comic things

2014-06-08, 08:08 AM
Frankly, I have too much time on my hands right now and I'm doing nothing with it. Literally nothing. So let's try one of those comic things and see if I can actually keep a project going. I used to be so motivated!

SO. You're a kobold. Fate hates you and you are not a sorcerer. Or any kind of spellcaster, actually. That's not fair at all!

Here's you, in your pixelated glory:


Your pants are good camouflage in the snow. Too bad only the pants are.

Are you:

An unarmed swordsage?


A totemist?


Probably because you hate me and want me to struggle with particle effects forever. You gnomebellied son of a gnomish gnome.

Perhaps... a psion? You'll show them by being tier 1 anyway!


(You're all rigid and blocky because psions are into crystals. Makes sense, right?)

Or, I don't know. Something else? You probably want to be a MONK or something. You jerks.

FYI you probably won't be something else.

Also. What is your name?

What is your quest?

Not sure I'm into the particle effects (they don't fit the style by being not-blocky. Kinda like introducing spheres to Minecraft), but I support the effort here. :smallsmile:
(I suggest introducing a hook of sorts to get started; not be completely "iunno, do whatever".)

They're absolutely terrible, but when [kobold] is not 70% of the image it doesn't look nearly as bad. Also, something something weird soul magic?

Fair enough. Your goal is to punch Kurtulmak for not letting you be a sorcerer. How do you begin this quest?

1) Go beat up harmless wildlife in the forest until you learn how to beat up harmful wildlife.

2) Go try to make a rival and mooch off of his EXP-gaining ways.

3) Or you could go to a tavern. Pretty sure kobolds have taverns, too.

(P.S. Hey, neat, GenGame! I used to love that, then it got all hard-to-navigate and mixed in with other stuff and I stopped. I should go catch up with what you're up to.)

(Yay! ...wait, oh no! D: I hope the site is easier to navigate now. The archive is on the left of the site for all comic stuff. The order being GenGame (stopped), GenCrawl (stopped), GenCrawl Gaiden. Vermillion is vaguely inbetween and CotF (non-interactive) is currently on hiatus due to another artist learning the ropes to take that over.)

I would vote #2, nothing like being a semi-inept rival to the actual hero (I was always curious what rivals like Gary in pokemon did when you were not fighting them)

Let's be a Psion who undertakes the rival task and name him tuktuk

You guys took way too long! I... kind of wandered off, defeated, and then just now decided to start it up again in a slightly more formal manner. And then I thought to check here.

So, uh, yeah. http://screwyoukurtulmak.wordpress.com/2014/06/18/0-1/

Same idea, but rebooted with a more focused origin.
