    "The really unforgivable acts are committed by calm men in beautiful green silk rooms, who deal death wholesale, by the shipload, without lust, or anger, or desire, or any redeeming emotion to excuse them but cold fear of some pretended future. But the crimes they hope to prevent in the future are imaginary. The ones they commit in the present--they are real." --Aral Vorkosigan

    Ooooh, let's see.

    There is Galaxion. Which was a pity since it was a decently well thought out comic about space explorers who actually care about doing a good job (rather than just sleeping with the natives like Kirk).

    Then there is Dumnestor's Heroes, which I don't think is anywhere anymore. The same author also wrote The Interstellar Tea House and abandoned it too a few years later. There was another she abandoned at the same time as Dumnestor's Heroes, but I can't remember its name. They were all interesting in their way.

    I'm surprised nobody has mentioned "Elf Only Inn", but then again it was always rather weird. It got really weird at the end and I guess the author just never figured out where to go with it.

    It's hardly dead, it's just resting. The author put up a new page just last month, although it's a one-off and not a continuation of the main story, which hasn't updated in... over a year? Still, the slow, erratic updates are part of the charm.


    Personally, I'd like to see Polymer City Chronicles return.

    Not sure if orphaned or revived or maybe even finished ... Copper is a whimsical non-continuous comic about a boy, his dog and their imagination, from Kazu Kibuishi, creator of Amulet, Daisy Kutter and Flight. Each episode is pretty much stand-alone and drawn in a beautiful page. It used to update once a month, then went on hiatus for a while. The webpage says it started updating again in 2017, but since there are no release dates there for any of the comics, I can't actually tell how long that lasted. There's apparently a printed collection, but I don't know how many of them are in there. And going back and reading, I can't actually tell which ones are from before the hiatus and which are after. But it's beautiful! Go read it.
    I'm pretty much the opposite of concise. If I fail to get to the point, please ask me and I'm happy to (attempt to) clarify.

    Ava's Demon is back, baby! Not a huge surprise, as has been discussed upthread, but still enough to make me happy!

    I disagree that Rob was exploring every nook and cranny of the world building. What he decided to explore was Magic Links. The volcano was cool, but linking became far too common, and used way too much for power escalation, which led to the sentient towers, which became the new escalation method after all the thinkamancers croaked.

    I'm a big fan of all the world building that has nothing to do with links. It's even been my pet project to work on making an RPG/wargame out of it (something Rob specifically asked fans to do).

    I lost all my information after Erfworld went into lock down, but I recently got access to my old rules, and I copied them down to another website.

    I've worked out the system of how units are created, how basic combat goes on, how to work mass combat, how specials work. All sorts of things, and it all fits extremely well with canon. Currently, I'm working on a city builder and writing down how sides work. I've put a lot of work into the thing, and it's well over 50k words at this point.

    the website seems to be down, so i can't even link it, but "Jack of all blades" (later "Jacq of all blades") was a fun one that i enjoyed but sadly dropped off right at the climax of two giant shape-shifting goo monsters fighting eachother.

    Alright, fine, a specific subset of the world. My point was that the focus shifted from a specific story told in fictive world to the world itself.

    In fairness, you reached the point where if you did not risk a link, you lacked the power level needed to compete. Parson raised the stakes for nation survival, so now power levels go up.

    It does not help that we then find out that the Thinkamancers actually know more about linking than has been publicized, and apparently can do it safely, so now we have a massive power level increase and potential risk of disclosure of "serious state secrets".

    Erfworld was, put simply, one massive power level jump after another. The Thinkamancers wanted to change things, so they gave a scroll to Wanda/Stanley that would change things up by bringing in a new player. This resulted in Gobwin Knoll doing things differently, completely changing the terrain of 7 hexes, becoming the focus of what was otherwise an "Independent, all of Erfworld serving agency" into a focused-on-one-group massive force, which then resulted in more power growth.

    You went from 100's, if not a thousand different sides, to two main sides -- and power levels going up on both sides. With the Thinkamancers trying to be a third side, only to be mostly wiped out as a side, and finally reduced to just a bunch of semi-independents.

    Looking back, it all boils down to one bad decision made by the fool (Jack). When he could have had a serious negotiation with the other side on being defeated, Jack assured him that it would just be a false negotiation. Later, Jack decided to take action that wrecked Parson's plans.

    Parson was so different that Jack's behavior went from "normal, helpful", to "the cause of everything that happened after that".
    Not "fire at". I never used the word "at"

    Welp, just read another one. With the Halloween season upon us, I started reading Shifters Redux, a comic about werewolves and vampires. The art's pretty good, and the story was interesting, but the last page was posted in December, 2018. Still, it has apparently come back from hiatuses before, so maybe it will again. This makes me 0 for 2 with werewolf webcomics being on hiatus.

    EDIT: Okay, couldn't sleep last night, so I also read the entire pre-reboot comic Shifters: The Beast Within. Wow is the pacing totally different! The original goes through plot beats so fast I regularly thought I was somehow skipping pages. This improves a lot after the first few chapters, but those first few... Ambushed by vampires! Vampires are real! Your best friend's a werecat! Now you've been bitten by the vampires, and are transforming! All that happens in three pages (and not long pages either) without any setup beforehand. I definitely prefer the Redux's willingness to take its time, build up tension, and show what's happening. The Beast within does have its strengths too, though; for starters it's a lot longer, making it through way more arcs and ending on something that's at least kind of like a narrative stopping point. I also like the very Alucard-esque design for Maverick (though I wish they'd clarified what the hell he was at some point) and to a lesser extent John.

    I guess technically I'm 0 for 3 now, too.
