This comic is about the son of the Evil king, who seems to be incapable of actually being evil, no matter how hard he tries. My current story arc should go for about 120 strips and I hope to continue past that as well!

New strips on update on the main site on Mondays and Thursdays.

Looks veryly goody-good and original, I'll follow closely :smallsmile:

*hits head against comic* Owie! Not that closely :smalltongue:

It even have a (Possibly future) good character who uses necromancy, I've always liked those (Even those like Tsukiko) :smallbiggrin:

Hm. Not quite 12 hours and 36 minutes, more like 6 hours and 30 minutes, but it'll do. So there is no neutral land in Aerir? Or is it a percentage so small, like, so the main character and a few companions. And I like the fact that chaotic good is bigger than lawful good, and the opposite is for the evil.

Not to be nitpicky or skedaddle but in the banner the 'evil' guy counters Bolster Truth with Dismiss Lies. Dismiss means to banish or ward off and dismissing lies is essentially the same as bolstering truth...

Essentially the spells should do as they say: making truth stronger and removing lies, respectively.

So they would be complimenting each other... That could actually be funny to see their reactions to :smalltongue:

So I can steal a cookie and it will be somebody else who did it or nobody at all despite that?

that's what would happen if there was no truth.

There isn't an absolute truth but there is partial truths of varying reliabilities. Like saying the sky is blue: It's true because we see it like that but it's also false because some creatures see it as another colour.

As such it is both true and false, making it a partial truth :smallsmile:

And technicaly "blue" is not a definitive property, because nobody can prove that people see the same "blue" and that some people might see "our" "blue" as "our" red or orange. :smallamused:

Isn't it a bit too early to have a TvTropes page? There's only one comic now, I would have suggested to wait until this series proves to survive the first two months (the mortality rate of Giantitp fancomics is very high, very few last past a dozen strips).

That was my pointy-point, it's subjective but since at least one person, if not all humans, sees it as bluey-blue (which is also a subjective truth as you pointed out, but getting into such skedaddle will just make the point shellier to get across) then it's blue, even if it's also grey since dogs see it that way.

Also, six year old mind? You sure that wasn't a typo or are you really a six year old?

'Cause, that would be kinda cool :smalltongue:

Again, there is technically no "bluey-blue" because everyone could interpret it in a different way and nobody would know. :smallamused:

Just because there isn't any way to know how it looks to everybody doesn't mean it's not there. Besides; the point was that it's a partial truth, not an absolute one. Blue is both blue because that's the name we give it regardless of our individual perspective and not blue because another species' members registers blue as what we what we have named "grey"

Now go back to your comic before we end up arguing about the existence of cheese! :smalltongue:

About this... I found it when I was trying to google a pic that had a continuum of color swatches between blue and green. The point of that pic was that there was a point in which it started being more "Blue" than "green," but people disagreed on where exactly that point was. I couldn't find it, but this was the next best thing. So... idk my bff Jill.

Yeah, it's a bit messy.

If the intention was to get across that they are blocking out the viewers, perhaps you could try some static, as you would get on old televisions?

And unlike the people who think it came out of nowhere, myeh. At the very best, there could have been a comic between this one and the one before, which featured an ominous speech bubble, before Whatsherface Plane Shifts away. I dunno, I don't see what kind of thing you were hoping for :smallsigh:

She planeshifted to the place where the green voiced thing is if I read it correctly. How could it be featured before she get there and talk to it?

I personally had no problem with the last panel, someone (apparently us)
was scrying on them and the green voiced one block it thus creating multi-coloured static. Makes perfect sense to me :smallsmile:

Mmm... partly correct. NO MORE HINTS FOR YOUSAS! :smallamused::smalltongue:

I personally had no problem with the last panel, someone (apparently us) was scrying on them and the green voiced one block it thus creating multi-coloured static. Makes perfect sense to me :smallsmile:

Personally, I feel that if you have to clarify something, you may as well have not bothered anyway; nevertheless, it's all a learning experience. The comic should be able to stand free of it's creator; the art should support itself.

Zexion
2010-09-12, 11:42 AM
If you are serious enough about your webcomic to give it its own website, itís not a fan comic anymore. You should leave the updates/images on your own site and start a discussion thread in the Webcomics forum instead. If itís an OOTS-style comic, we waive that requirement because any comic using the OOTS style is obviously a fan comic, and is welcome to post here.
