Joining up with TS, that means old friends, new enemies. interesting possibilities there.

Edit: also, Kirby's quest for hats (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=109292) could sort of be counted as a backstory for both Grlump and Rae, seeing as they are both part of the main party and are (I'm just assuming this for Grlump, but it's entirely possible) the same characters, even though it was created prior to both of us joining ABR. I do plan on continuing updates again at some point, so it's just on hiatus for now.

Also edit. First time posting on the first page of a discussion thread, I think this means I'm officially "in".

It's called "double sarcasm", and it doesn't work without one of these " :smalltongue: ", because the internet is a strange place, filled with monotone and stupid, stupid people. So when you pretend to be ignorant, you have to be really, really obvious about it.

Some fun facts about Dylan Stryder for anyone writing a comic about him (*cough* Kumo *cough*).

- His real name is not Dylan Stryder, but Stewart Fogelman. Because no rock star is called Stewart Fogelman he of course uses a stage name. He has been known to physcially hurt anyone who refers to him by his real name.

- He secretly has very low self esteem. He hides it with his outbursts of anger. His entire life as a musician has been an attempt to make him feel better about himself. But it hasn't worked. He doesn't like his music all that much (though he'd never admit it). His self loathing stems from an incident he had as a child when he accidentally set fire to his parents living room carpet and got scalded for it. All he really wants is a hug from mom and dad but he'd never say so.

- He's an enviromentalist.

- And an alcoholic.

I like the idea of KQFH being Grlump's Backstory :D

Edit: I'm going on holiday this afternoon for a week, so may not have much chance to produce a comic for a week, so I don't mind how Grlump joins up with TS (If, of course, I'm acepted) and I'll leave it up to you guys if yo uwant. Will be interested in seeing the outcomes.

Some character traits that could be useful:
- Grlump likes food
- Normally quite a silent character
- Basic character here (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=109292)

Mostly random FFF:r questions.

The baddies are on what may or may not be a goose chase after the green key. Is team good going to find out about this as well, or is Salmon going to have one of his "visions" and then the group will move in a different direction towards X key?

Also, which team good characters are not going back on the airship?

and what the hell is the point of this post in the art thread?

That's a great one. Thanks for the share...

All the questions regarding team good may be a little hard to answer, as it appears that not a lot of the members of team good are really all that active.

It seems that the plot may be following the bad guys for a little while. At least until a member of the good team makes more comics.

maybe you should switch to completely opaque speech balloons, especially in wordy comics, they are more pleasant to read.

Kumo
2010-07-17, 01:18 PM
maybe you should switch to completely opaque speech balloons, especially in wordy comics, they are more pleasant to read.

I have them that way for two reasons.

One: I like them that way. Just seems more like sound to me.

Two: for when i make comics that have lots of scenery or people. Covering stuff up really ticks me off.

I could change the opaqueness from 50 to 75 or 80, maybe... lemme go see how it would look.

(im honestly more annoyed with the way his arms turned out... in some of the shots his cloak doesn't cover his arm and when he turns his head around it looks like his shoulder is where his neck should be)

EDIT: Yuuup. Definitely 80.

Threeshades
2010-07-17, 05:29 PM
Two: for when i make comics that have lots of scenery or people. Covering stuff up really ticks me off.

For that most comicmakers learn how to layout speech balloons so they dont obstruct anything important.
I think turning up the opacity wuld be a good start, the way they are right now, is just making the speech balloons harder to spot and makes reading them feel rather tedious. Also they look kind of unimportant that way, like a bunch of side notes.

Perhaps you should try an alternative to speech bubbles, Kumo. Maybe add captions below your panels so that you have an unobstructed view of the entire panel while still conveying what is said.

Emperor Ing
2010-07-18, 04:40 PM
Easiest thing to do is to make panels bigger and characters smaller. It also looks like you could use a smaller font.

I was going to make a comic yesterday, but I didn't get the chance to. Yesterday was my father's birthday.

I shall make one today. If anybody's commited to bringing ABR back to life, it's me. I've even said a while back, X2, that I've put all my other projects on hold just to keep making a bunch of ABR comics. ABR WILL see life again!

[EDIT] I'm confused. Would it be "brake into my own apartment" or "break my own apartment". Neither of those sound right to me for some reason, and I'm confused. I guess it dosen't really matter too much. You know what I'm trying to say.

It would be Break in this instance, as in to damage or destroy, as opposed to Brake, as in to cause cessation of or otherwise halt.

Considering that the comic won't be a Burlewian sticky-stick figure style if I ever get started on it, I couldn't have made it in two days without breaking the laws of space-time.

Not that I wouldn't do that, it's just that I haven't acquired the Pluty-Plutonium, stringy-string and snazzy hat to do it yet :smalltongue:

Hey Q, you are aware that Grlump is a gnome, right?

I was not aware of said situation.

I couldn't find any reference to his race looking through the discussion threads. I realize that I probably could've checked Kirby's Quest For Hats, since I remember hearing that the two characters are the same. I didn't think of it at the time.

I just thought dwarf because of the beard, the battleaxe, and the brown clothing. Those are typically associated with dwarfs, don't you think? So I guess Q made the same mistake as I did. He himself knew he was too fast to be a dwarf, so I guess it all works out. :smallwink::smalltongue:

Hey Grlump! You're back! That's great! :smallsmile:

Feel free to make comics for this epic one-on-one fight, if you like. I didn't really have your character talk, because I didn't know what he would say, and I only made him use his axe because I didn't know anything about him (I even thought he was a dwarf! :smalltongue:) so if you want to make a comic showcasing his true fighting abilities and personality, go right ahead.

@Zex: It's a common fallacy that your character needs motivation to join ABR plots (except maybe FI). In FFF:R, Fel's entire planned MO is that "she can't find the underdark, so she's joining the whole thing out of boredom, literally for the lulz." Thus, if you want, you can simply join a team because KP stole your ice cream when you were little, and you were just out for long overdue revenge.

He totally is... (And he DOES have bewbies...)


@Fay: You don't need motivation to join ABR plots =p.

No but having a character with goals is good.
I mean I'm gunna use Rae as an example...
How did he know about the first key? no one else did till Salmon and Leyroy went all trancy.
Why does he want them?
Does he know what power they have?

Whereas my character (Maestro) has very clearly defined goals...
Spoilered so that If you don't want to know his rough goals you don't have to read or accidentally see them.
Step 1: Kidnap Big Fish
Step 2: Get Big Fish to tell him where the mysterious "Keys" locking away the "Dragon Talisman" is that he had read stories and legends about.
Step 3: Gain access to the Keys.
Step 4: Gain access to the Talisman.
Step 5: Use the power of the Talisman to spread his magic music across the whole planet and bend everyone to his will.
Step 6: ????
Step 7: Profit!

Which reminds me... I should probably chase up Keris as he had a few comic ideas that meant I might have to wait for him to make a comic before making one myself... (In both/either 3FR and/or FI) :smallsigh:

As the other's have said, read through (At least some) of the archive of the plot-line you're interested in. Being at the moment either Future Imperfect or Fat Fish Fury: Reboot.

Think of a character concept and find a way to worm it into the plot. And that's it.

No but having a character with goals is good.
I mean I'm gunna use Rae as an example...
How did he know about the first key? no one else did till Salmon and Leyroy went all trancy.
Why does he want them?
Does he know what power they have?


I'll answer these:

He didn't know about the keys, but it's reasonable to assume that someone on the ship told him the reason why they were doing what they were doing.
He doesn't want the keys, he's just in this to have fun and see the sights.
And no, he doesn't know exactly what powers they have, but even if he did he wouldn't want it. Power corrupt, absolute power corrupts absolutely and all that. Also more mysterious reasons, but those would be spoilerific if I were to reveal them.

Dang Whippersnappers. In my time we didn't have no Reboots or Futures, we just had to read the archive's thousand and more comics and WE LIKED IT! :smallmad::smalltongue:

In the goode ol' days, when I actually made comic strips, we fought ancient evils up-mountain (Both ways!) and the evil manifested in the form of the shades instead of these round-down little Sovices :smalltongue:

I did read the 2000 comics, it really took 4 or 5 days to read all that.

hey, it was all you guys faults, you just said a vague "no godmodding" and such, and oh and by the way, your characters are kind of the powerful side themselves, and its a different format of roleplay than I was used to, all this combined sorta made me confused as to what passed for "too powerful" or "godmodding" mmmmk? you didn't speciafy whata theya werea.

and it wasn't turning into an electric monster! it was internal summoning a storm elemental and using its powers, the altered look is just a side-effect.
why? so that he looks cool duh.

I mean I COULD make a non-overpowered character who just snarks at everything now that I know what passes for overpowered here, but nyeh.

Rule 5: Don't godmod others, It's okay to have somebody else say things, but don't have them make any big decisions.

Rule 6: NO SHOWBOATING! in Improv every member is trying to make the rest of the ensamble look good, not to try to make themselves look good. You can still do awsome things, but don't completally overshadow everybody else.

Rule 7: Build Up, if your going to change the plot in a major way, Don't do it all in one post, start it, making it clear what your trying to acheive, if other people want to stop it they can and we dont have to vote your post non-canon.
--
Rule 9: Don't finish lethal or incrediably dehabilitating attacks against other PC's, start them and give the other person a chance to react, its not "I cut your head off", its "I try to cut your head off", it's up to them whether or not you succeed.

Rule 10: accept weakness, we are not all superman, we are not all invincible, its no fun if nobody loses anything.

Rule 11: Get over yourself, there are other people in this plot to, so don't plan more then one post ahead and then get mad when people don't feel like going with what you want them to do, I don't care how awsome it seems.
Amendments can be allowed, rules can be changed according to votes, ect.

My character's got a gun and can run, he works for a completely mortal Moonelf with a sword and works with a penguin with standard magic, a Kung-Fu guy with electric powers weaker than what the penguin could do and a sneaky Thiefling. How is that powerful?

Where should we know you didn't know what god-modding was? it's in the first post and written in higher detail in the FFRPG section.

Too powerful means you can railroad the plot if you feel like it just because you can explode anyone that disagree and god-modding means you

Hi Brighty!

there is many kinds of godmodding, just saying "godmodding" isn't enough, for example invincibility godmodding and mind control godmodding are two very different types, while super-speed godmodding is different from regeneration godmodding, I know what godmodding is you just didn't specify which one.

I consider super-speed, the ability to summon a space ship/airplane, a certain ponytailed person who can apparently use super clay to reach miles into the sky to pull my character down, a sword that can cut through anything, control over a tentacle-airship, very powerful, yes.

ok, how about summoning like last time, but only with non-living objects and nothing bigger than himself? the only reason he came down here is to snark at people. His backstory is that he spent too long on vacation and forgot what he was supposed to be on vacation from. that sound good?

All of them are bad, to put it in example form:

If your character were the best tap-dancer ever but otherwise weak and defenceless and I had my character who had never shown dancing skills before and had all kinds of other powers out do yours at tap-dancing it would be a Mary Sue moment and not god-modding (We still wouldn't allow it but that's another post) but if I drew mine out do your s and then had yours say "You've beaten me, here have my belongings" then it would be god-modding because I took your control of your own character from you :smallsmile:

Superspeed and no other magical powers, mind you. Crow can only do one other thing that constitutes as magic (which has nasty side-effects anyway) and both require specific items.
The Vendettamobile is a team-jet of sorts and can't do all that much so why is it a problem?
That was super-denim and I'll let Rae explain that one.
What sword?
That tentacle-thing is the first mate of Nitrine, the ship was team Good's team-jet.
It's all different characters who could by no means affect your character (except Rae) anyway so why is it them you call very powerful?

Yep, My character has 1 power really (well, he can do simple spells and add his power to other people's spells, but those aren't major), control over denim and the ability to summon it, he is a half decent fighter by his own rights, but yeah magic denim. Yellow denim, like the kind I used to restrain you is electricproof and can deliver shocks, and has the same capabilities as steel. I used my in-comic knowledge of what I could have seen your character do and attacked in the best way I could, which wasn't perfect, a still fireball, for example, could have easily burnt the denim. There were options, and more than the 2 I gave It's powerful yes, but not Gamebreakingly so.

EDIT: OOH OOH OOH! Me, Pick me Q! I'll make you a nice denim suit!

Are we having that overpowered discussion thing again XD?

I think a good way to summarize the whole issue is this: no one cares about how powerful a character potentially is. People don't care if Mr. A have time stop or shapechange if he uses them sparingly and don't dominate the plot with them. I'm actually left-handed and lazy genius both works, and even if he doesn't believe in trope shenanigans, you can let others win once in a while by:

1. Posting sparingly
2. Try not to interrupt attempted plot points such as a battle between team good and evil.
3. Avoid taking on everyone single-handedly.

Overall, it's not about the potential power of a character as much as it is about how you use them. I've roleplayed (freeform) with some of the most ridiculous overpowered things out there and have personally used many of those characters (in fact, Fel is very overpowered), and I was able to have fun with things like very, very weak child characters because they didn't try to dominate the roleplay at every single turn.

And now that I've said all of that...*disappears*

And I only got into it because you mentioned Rae. if you want to put something behind you, here's my advice, stay out of it, if you ignore something when people bring it up, they will eventually stop bringing it up. Apologise once and move on. Oh, and stop blaming us for "Not clarifying what constituted overpowered" or whatever, you say you read through the entire archive, dont you think that you should have gleaned a little understanding as to how much impact a single player could have in such a short amount of time with absolutely no buildup?

When I screw up, I fix myself, forget about it and get on with my life improved because of it, the end. I don't know why its hard for other people to get that.

So if there are people who still have a problem with me, they need to settle it and get on with their lives, cause if you bring it up, you clearly still have problem with me, settle as soon as you can and go back and do better things than bringing up mistakes and things some people would prefer to keep in the past.

I've always wondered how Pokéballs work. I always imagined that they erase the Pokémon's memories and so you're the first thing they see, and they think of you as their mother and always do what you say. Which is why the Pokémon forget their families that they're probably hunting for out in the wild where you first encounter them, and their families starve to death.



I actually wondered that myself, and my logic is that pokemon are actually more dangerous than they are shown to be, because if we have to capture them then it must mean on some level that they are a threat and have to be controlled.

Therefore Professor Oak, the inventor of the pokeball is the one who made a brainwashing system of capture, distributing them across the world as the chief way to capture and control pokemon so that they don't destroy all of civilization.

but then my logic led to me to think: wait, if Nurse Joys machine can instantly heal pokemon through the pokeballs then that must mean the technology on some level is compatible with it, that the design is specifically for the pokeballs. which means that Prof. Oak also designed it. why? because as pokemon battle, I think they start to revert and become more wild and healing them renews the brainwashing to keep them in control.

then my mind thought about nurse joy and officer jenny and why they are the same, which then led me to figure out that all the pokemon look the same as well, so if Joy and Jenny all look the same then they must be part pokemon because they look like and talk like humans but y'know all look the same.

so why would they be part pokemon? well if nurse joys all operate the pokemon center, and Oak designed the technology for centers healing tech then Oak must be connected to them, but since the pokemon centers are free then that must mean they are government funded, meaning Prof Oak is with the government. and if Prof. Oak has the funding of the government, Joy is part pokemon, and Oak is the leading pokemon genius in the world who designed the pokeball which brainwashes pokemon....

then that must mean Prof. Oak genetically engineered all the Joys and Jenny's
and is part of a big government conspiracy to mass produce a homing pokeball that adapts itself to the pokemon it is about to catch to ensure 100% success rate based off the info from the pokedex and launch it across the world, thus controlling every pokemon ever and becoming rulers of the world!

I would write a story about that, but I am busy doing more important things.

from the government of course, they perfected it and they gave it to him to work out a way to make it cheaplier and more efficiently.

The official Pokémon explanation is that they are testing you by battling you. If you can defeat them then you are worthy of being their friend/master.

The Pokéballs are made by this geezer in Silver/Soulsilver and Gold/Heartgold.
I can't remember where those games take place but you brig him apricorns and he makes you Pokéballs.

The games have a limited number of sprites thus explaining why the Joys and Jennys are identical :smallsmile:

Of course the truth is that the Pokémons are really running organised crime in the Pokéverse and have evil nefarious plans with the humans. Especially the Beautifly.

I thinking of getting a new background location for my next episode. Any suggestions?

Some sort of tropical beach somewhere? With the Sand and the Palm trees and the idylic sunset which you can stare at dreamily while the gently tide laps slowly at your feet.

Then you notice the KILLER SHARK!

So, uh... I'd like to start comic-making now, but I don't know the entire plot (but I am reading it), so...

In Future Imperfect, what would be some possible backstories for a genetically modified (think Jack Heath's Agent Six or Neo, minus the ridiculous flying stuff, but in real life), somewhat paranoid, man? :smallsmile:

Genetic engineering hasn't been discovered yet (the tech level is roughly that of the early 1900s, with some additions), but the Sovice nanomachines could very well serve the same purpose (they're the non-magical Phlebotinum of Avbaroy). You could easily justify it by declaring it a UNA/Sovice experiment. Are you going to be with the UNA, the ALF, another group of your invention, or a freelancer?

Though beware, FI's archive is fairly outdated. I'll bring it up to date soon though, and I'll make a comic that's going to provide some plot hooks. There are not really any short-term goals right now apart from giving back Lor Nae's emerald, my next comic should hopefully provide some stuff for the characters in Skornbail.

Mmm... for starters, I'm inventing a group which will serve as a secret freelance organization called FALCON working with a specialized form of Sovice nanomachines that work to rebuild DNA strands to create genetically modified soldiers to sell to the highest bidder. My character will be an escaped creation, and will probably be freelance, but working to bring down FALCON.

Interesting. I suggest asking Lyinginbedmon about the specifics, he's the creator of the Sovices. Your character would be most likely to acquire help from the ALF, as it'll be in their interest to remove such an organisation to prevent the UNA (who have a lot more money than them) from using them. That's just the most obvious option however; I'm sure there's a way of allying the UNA against FALCON.

Alright.


EDIT: Are there icebergs somewhere in the world? :smallsmile:

Mmh... Well, Avbaroy is largely tropical/temperate but Lockutas (a country that was magically frozen centuries ago) is now being fixed to its original climate, but there's going to be lots of melting ice as it's a long-drawn out process, which means lots of floating icebergs.

Here's the map (http://www.kinogo.com/victor/maps/worldmap3.png), though lots of Laurasian countries are place-holders, so feel free to ask me to replace one by a nation of your imagining.

Well, the Sovice didn't really appear until 15 years before FI, so I would suggest changing the "34 years ago". Other than that, it's fine, although they seem very modern... Perhaps they're from Schizotec, the nation where most of the non-Sovice advanced technology comes from?

Sure. And yes, they are very modern. And sure, Schizotec would be a good starting nation, but, of course, there would be exceptions.

The "Sovice Territory" areas are mostly uninhabited deserts, the UNA control pretty much the entire world.

then how are the Sovices getting any resources? sand ain't much of anything, so either they are getting it from the UNA or trading.....

or do the Sovices use their nano-robotic trick to transmute sand into other forms of matter to get their matter or for some reason do the Sovices not need resources?

also why is it that big gulf thing in the Sovice territories circular? did a meteorite come down and make it like that?

Deserts aren't just dunes of sands. A lot of them are rocky, and there are plenty of resources to be found there. And IIRC, the Sovices can absorb almost anything.

The UNA was founded by the Sovices, they're highly connected.

Some 2500 years ago the Great Cataclysm happened. Some believe it's a meteorite, but no-one is quite sure.

Lord Raziere
2010-08-07, 12:29 AM
huh, just curious.

hey maybe it would be better if I tried FI instead, I'm more of a "serious" guy than a "silly" guy anyways, and a bleak hopeless fight against a technologically superior regime sounds cyberpunk to me and I like cyberpunk. yea, forget the "gather the macguffins" plot, fighting against the Sovices and UNA sounds like my cup of tea, the high chance of death just sounds like a good environment to try to do something sufficiently audacious, cause if you can pull off something like that in that kind of setting.....

that and the plot actually sounds real. and of the FI comics I read so far.......I don't see many people dying aside from mooks. I'm not worried.

There's Armanea (http://abr.wetpaint.com/page/Amarnea), who was of near-Modern Earth technology, yet like Schizotec, it was completely isolated from the rest of the world until the UNA was established in 1526. At that point most of the world was at roughly Late Medieval in terms of tech, so any nation that is technologically advanced has to be isolated to explain how their knowledge didn't spread to the rest of the world.

Hmm... how about this organization stole a whole bunch of information from Armenea's libraries, all to do with modifying genetics and stuff? :smallbiggrin:

Or maybe the lab people were given the information by the UNA to help with their research... :smallamused:

Softwind is probably where your character is, because that's where most of the dunes are. There are three other deserts: Harshrealm (rocky with flash floods), Helina (volcanic) and the Eternal Ruins (also rocky).

As a hat collecter myself (yes, that is one of my hobbies. Collecting hats.) I would love it if somebody I knew could make me any single hat I would ever want.

I guessing this somebody would want to be paid, and not just in cameos, which is where I'd probably turn the offer down. :smalltongue:

Actually, I do know a custom hat store. The only problem is, they don't do designs or anything like that. So when I was making a Mario hat and a Luigi hat for myself to add to my collection, I had to get my parents to sew the letters on. It cost a lot to get those hats made, too. Like $80 a hat.

The next day, dollar stores are selling Mario Bros. hats for like, $3 bucks each. :smallfurious:
