In the land of... uh... Pylira or however those people pronounce it. There's a terrible evil spreading across the land. And a group of totally weird people join together for faith, friendship, and tons of dirty lucre to defeat the evil that is tainting the world.

'Wait a minute... this sounds a bit familiar. Oh yeah like every other adventuring group in the universe.' You might say but these people work for considerably less than an average group and they call themselves:

THE DISCOUNT ADVENTURERS

This fancomic updates 1 to 3 times a week. Unless we are super busy, if we are we'll make a special explanation just for you, the viewers! Constructive criticism is welcome. And also compliments are welcome, since I am officially neurotic about how I do my comics and the comments. :smallbiggrin:

I am the other guy she mentioned. Each person that works with us helps with the ideas, and some more than others, at times. Evil Mustache and I are the only people in our group that have a user here. And yes, my avatar is one of the characters in this.

Is that guy with a grey shirt who has had his pocket picked supposed to have a knife through him?

Draconi Redfir
2010-05-04, 09:59 PM
no, those are his pockets folded inside-out.

Then I would suggest adding pants to his outfit to make it more obvious, and perhaps straighten out his legs if he is laying on the floor.

Oh, and if you haven't noticed, the main characters in the story are all in this and are the character's with hair.

Thank you for the advice. :smallsmile: Hope you enjoyed the pilot comic all the same.

It looks to be something good in the works. The tall style is looks a bit off, though. Try making the stroke thicker to offset that. And your female body needs quite a bit of work. The rogue looks like she's just got ridiculously huge implants.

bcbbb
2010-05-05, 06:51 PM
oh, and by the way, updates will be posted by either me or evil mustache, if it is by me, look at the last page, and if it is by evil mustache, it will be on the first page, so sometimes you might want to check both.

It certainly looks like it was made with discount art software.

...Okay, that was uncalled for. I apologize. It was just a zinger too precious to pass up. :smallfrown:

Anyway, while the art certainly isn't bad, it could be improved. Like, the squwigily lines for arms for that guy in the corner? Just seems untidy. Plus everything else everybody else previously mentioned.

As for story, I just hope this isn't an OOTS clone where the adventurers have no reason for adventuring with each other and have no motive for adventuring. And relies merely on D&D jokes that have been used over and over again. And fourth wall breaking. Is it just me that's beginning to get cheesed off by that kind of story? I hope not.

bcbbb
2010-05-05, 07:18 PM
it'll be different than that, but at parts similar, and there are going to be more non-d&d jokes.

Also about That Guy With His Pockets Turned Out, isn't his pockets a litle... um, high up? It looks like his pants go up to his belly button or something :smallconfused:

He's an old guy. :smallamused: But don't worry folks I'm almost done with the second comic and have taken in all of your criticism (including pants and rants) to add in a few new things that I hadn't previously taken into account.

Thanks for everything ya'll!

on the origin of pc's spoiler.
do you know why haleys prison number being 24601 is significant?

Of course!

It's the number of Jean Valjean in Les MisÚrables! :smallsmile: That's what I know, unless you have another meaning for it.

But thanks for reminding me Traker. If people haven't seen it yet, the comic is updated! The link for those to lazy to go up to the top down here.

One tiny problem: a sorcerer with negative charisma would be unable to cast a 0-level spell, much less a high-level one like Destruction.

CrimsonAngel
2010-05-08, 11:48 AM
Yeah, it's like their main stat.

Lord Raziere
2010-05-08, 11:52 AM
yea, either that guy is a wizard or you'll have to switch that stat to negative wisdom.

1. I don't write the comics so technically I have no input into what they tell to put in.

2. I will tell the people who write it immediately. Meanwhile enjoy sight of some blatant foreshadowing!

Ssh! Let the nice people figure it out for themselves.

It's a mime, how can it not be a villain?

Evil Mustache

Touche, good sir, touche. Half correct. He's... a talking mime! DUN DUN DUN! :smallbiggrin:

Great comic. Not one of the top five, but it's definitely up there.

that's only because it is just starting. it will get better. oh, and by the way, we will not always follow every D&D rule or spell, because we make up our own.

Yes, you're right.

and really, if we are only on strip 2 and considered good, i think that is a good sign.

bcbbb
2010-05-19, 06:45 PM
since we did not update the comic last weekend, we will post 2 this weekend. we have not said this yet because this is the first chance that anyone has to post on this thread.

i've been wondering what happened to you guys. i'll be waiting!:smallbiggrin:

bcbbb
2010-05-20, 06:15 PM
yeah, and like i said, we are sorry for that, but it was just because no one was able to post it then. also, if you have questions about anything with this, post them or send an email to my user-linked account. it is the official comic email and address is discountadventurers@yahoo.com.

Evil Mustache
2010-05-22, 12:15 PM
Sorry for the wait up everybody! I've been busy with testing, studying, and a few hobbies of mine which I love but have taken up most of my time.

Hope you can forgive me/us with these two strips!

You should, er, work on your speech bubble order...

You should, er, work on your speech bubble order...

Yeah I know. I actually looked up a couple of days ago how to make a speech bubble and learned a much more helpful way how to make them.

But anyway. A new comic. With a totally over used title about a guy who got bit by a radioactive arachnid.

#5 Wizardy Senses Tingling! (http://i740.photobucket.com/albums/xx46/Evil-Mustache/Discount%20Adventurers/5WizardySense.png)

In other news, I will be making an announcment about the comic. No I'm not stopping it, jeez! Stop jumping to conclusions! What are you, Miko?!:miko: So... yeah... just don't jump too far from the farm yet. And because I don't have enough to do already I'm making it in comic form. Yeah. Be happy I'm so nice. :smallmad:

Thank you all for agreeing with me. :smallsmile: AND thank YOU CrimsonAngel. They look so... so... elegant? No... Fantastic? No... but they do look AWESOME. For lack of a better word. Frendel looks so cool with his accordian.

What's up with the danceing, bent swords?

What's up with the danceing, bent swords?

Ah yes... my attempt to show him throwing a sword. I was watching a lot of Hercules from Disney and Herc bent and threw a sword. My attempt at making an inside joke... to myself. So there.:smalltongue:

CrimsonAngel
2010-06-04, 10:00 PM
Inside jokes were the only person who gets it is the writer are.... not so good.

Evil Mustache
2010-06-16, 12:15 AM
:smallsigh: Yeah...

Anyway! After enjoying my first weekend in summer vacation and ignoring the comic I had a wake up call. Involving the rest of the writers rappelling down with helicopters and many swords. Now, I have worked many hours on this comic. And here is:

#7 It Happens Every Few Days (http://i740.photobucket.com/albums/xx46/Evil-Mustache/Discount%20Adventurers/7ItHappensEveryFewDaysOrSo.png)

Honestly I feel Condor's pain. The same thing occurs everytime we meet to talk about the comic.

Evil Mustache
2010-06-28, 03:41 PM
Okay. Explanation time. Last weekend I had a family matter to take care of so that excuses my leave of absence. Second, Saturday I finished the comic but on Sunday when I was going to publish it my internet failed. ALL DAY. :smallsigh:

So here is the newest update. :smallsmile: Yay...
