Link to Main Thread (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?p=11298086#post11298086)FAQ:
What is Omnitopia: The Playground?
OTP (This is the official acronym, by the way) is a webcomic set in a fictional MMORPG that ended up becoming the most popular online game of all time. I think of it as a mixture of every game genre known to mankind. Players can start their own empires, they can explore the planet, they can turn evil and start blowing stuff up, basically, it's the perfect game.
Now, the premise of Omnitopia: The Playground is that the users of the forum have created their own server for Omnitopia. Nonsense follows, a Guildocracy is formed, people start exploring the world, and more nonsense follows.

What if I want to appear in the comic?
The answer to that question is extremely simple. You simply post on this thread, and say something along the lines of "I give permission to appear in this comic." I'll proceed to add you to the Permissions given list.
If you want to appear in a specific way, like as a villain, also include that as your post. The appearence of you in the game will be your avatar, or an edited version of it if it's not one of the twelve races in the game.

What if I don't want to appear in Omnitopia: The Playground?
Again, another simple answer. You simply post on this thread, and say something along the lines of "I don't want to appear in this comic." I'll then add you to the Banned from including list. If you decide in the future that you do want to appear, let me know and I'll add you to the correct list.

Akrim is then revived, as a ghost, by the Lord of Shadows. Thoughts?

If it doesn't work for your plot I could be a Wereraptor as well, given it was my original avatar.

Maxios appears in the comic as a moron, in a comic relief/Ralph-Wiggums type role. Maxios, early on, sets up the Guildocracy (which eventually becomes the server's largest country, another Minecraft server joke, which will be common) and joins the Adventurer's Guild. Despite his moronic appearence, Maxios is very cunning (and at one point in a comic strip I have planned) reveals he has a Master Plan.
The reason I had myself take the Ralph-Wiggums esqe, moronic, role is that I figured that I might offend someone if I have somebody else take that role.

Cool idea man.

1. Stick Figure isn't one of the races. But, you can be Morphed into one, so your character will start out as human, but will quickly be cursed into becoming a stick figure.
2. Thanks. Zexion helped come up with several elements of Omnitopia (the setting, that is) as well, so I can't take all the credit.

This reminds me of a fan comic that was being run when I first joined the forums. I think it was called In the Playground, and it was run by Elrond - it used people's avatars and characters and set them in a scenario.

This does look like it will be awesome!

To Shadowlord: Thank you :smallcool:

To Grlump: I once read The Playground. It was a pretty cool comic, but it's a shame it ended. Also, thanks

To Akrim: Alright, I'll fix her appearence.

To Ashtix: Since Turtle is a race you can be morphed into, your character will start out human. But, after activating a trap, your guy's been cursed into becoming a Turtle.

To Smuchmuch: You'll appear as a gunslinger who tries to become a Cyborg.

The Lord of Shadows has a focus on necromancy. While all the other players are off looting, or exploring, or even *gasps* working together, the Lord of Shadows is busy building his undead army.
After Akrim "accidently" gets pushed off a mountain by Grlump, the Lord of Shadows revives her and turns her into his undead minion. Eventually, a player discovers the Lord of Shadows' plans to conquer the GameWorld with his undead army, and warns the others.
The Lord of Shadows and his sinister horde retreat far in-land. Soon, after his horde grows ten times the size it originally was, he attempts to unleash a zombie apocolypse onto Omnitopia...
As you can guess, the Lord of Shadows is the villain of the first main story arc. Thoughts?

The group tries to find the Metropolis, the one city that always spawns on, but halfway through the journey the group splits in half.
The first half, led by Maxios, starts their own kingdom [The Guildoracy**] and the other half continues their quest. Azuyomi joins the Guildoracy, and becomes a member of the Council of the Five Heroes. Thoughts?

To Superdark: You're not late. The main thread will start soon, as soon as I finish the first three strips of The Playground and a few templates.

*-On the minecraft server, I started a merc group called the Adventurer's Guild within three hours of joining.
**-After finding a ripe area, the guild made their own city "Fort-Town". I became the Baron of the guild-kingdom, the Guildocracy.

My thoughts are...

HELL YEAH!

Though, I know this might seem much, and I don't want to be needy or nothin', and you absolutely don't need to do this but... could you possibly make a short character sheet for basic units in his army? And now that I think about it, I feel like a douche bag. Still, I have to ask, so I can get a general feel for what they're like.

Droid army? you mean robots? if you know the game Mardek i would like if you base my army on the ANNUNAKI. if you dont, just google search that.

and i think undead shouldnt have only one picture, especialy zombies, as some might not have limbs or heads.

ALSO: my charecter portrait request appears in the avatar request. if you want you can make it.

Maxios

1. By the end of the first story arc, the undead army is 25,436 undead monsters.

2. Not Creepers per say, but there will be a creature very similar to them.

3. Chefs are in the game, and so is cake.

4. Alright. You'll have an army of Annunaki look-alikes.

5. That's the base Zombie image. There are other images of zombies, some with missing limbs, missing eyes, even missing heads.

Each main story arc will last about three chapters. Each chapter will consist of 25 or more strips. The chapters in the first arc will be:

In the Beginning...
The Betrayal...
The Apocolypse...

Main villains in the story arcs, unless killed, will reappear with recurring roles.

Looking good so far. I probably don't need to say that the following criticism is meant to be constructive:
1. You've probably made the mouths different from OoTS on purpose, but I for one prefer that style. In this I think the flat lines make their faces seem vacant and emotionless and they seem to talk in a King Jovox yelling monotone.
2. The arms are held strangely, sort of cowboy-style.
3. They always look directly at the reader. This looks especially strange when running from a zombie, for instance. I would recommend moving the eyes to the side.
4. I'm really entering the realm of nitpicking on this one, it's not so important: The brain on the zombie is as big as the head; there would be no room for a skull or skin.
Keep in mind that if I started listing the stuff you're doing well we'd be here all day.

1. I tried to make the mouths like OoTs as much as I could. The flat lines mean their mouths are shut and they're not talking.

2. I'll work on that.

3. I tried having their eyes to the side once, and it looks extremely weird.

4. You have to remember, this is set in a video-game. Therefore, all zombies must've been mutants or something while alive, and because of it, they have to have brains the size of paper plates :smalltongue:

Much better. Tone down the font size, and this is just a nitpick but why is it that the color looks a little... I don't know, spotty? Anyhoo, it's almost perfect, and I'm liking it. Maybe it's just my computer, or maybe you can try amping up the resolution of the picture? I would use the OoTS resolution as a guideline, and try to get as near to theirs as possible.

I would advise the unnecessarily tedious work of grabbing the background color and all the little blemishes that appear right next to different colors, paint over with the background color. This would require zooming into at least 350% or so. I would also advise you to use a different color for the POP, perhaps going with just normal black, because right now it's clashes with the background. I dunno though, you do what you think is best.

Actually, keep the color and just use Comic Sans, bolded. You'll be good with that.

I really like what you have so far!
I just have a few nitpicks.
1st, the arms are a bit too long, and a bit gorrila-ey.
2nd, the legs look kind of awkward with both of them so straight. If you make one foot angled a bit and then curve the leg it looks a bit more action-ey. I have no idea if that made sense, but if you look at OOTS you can see what I mean.
Other than that it looks fantastic, and I can't wait to see more :smallbiggrin:

fizzybobnewt
2011-06-28, 09:54 AM
What I meant about the flat mouths was that I think you should make them as thick as the other lines and curve them up or down a little, depending on the mood of the character. Or, if the character is running from zombies, I would just use an open mouth. I was also going to say how I make OoTS looking mouths, (you're using Inkscape, I presume?) but Grlump likes yours, so never mind.

Anyway, I'm probably taking too much responsibility for your art.

Just got into reading this. It's looking like a pretty nice start. :smallbiggrin:

Room for one more? If so, sign me up for Warblade/Psion, mix of the mental and the physical. Race... well I'll just let you pick one based on the first part of my name, should be obvious enough. :smallwink: Role preferably as a solo villain, eventually aiming for redemption.


- - -

On a sidenote, have you considered the implications of making this comic like it's an MMO? (At least that's what it is looking like, forgive me if I'm wrong.) Life and death come to have different meanings, even if you cannot come back after dying (they could be like "screw this game, I'm gonna fight that dragon and if I don't survive I'm just quitting"). Aside from that and resting/eating/drinking (for which a game can have mechanics, but most don't), it largely would go the same as a normal comic.

Just curious. :smallsmile:

Okay. A mix of mental and physical would be the Spellblade class of the Shapeshifter race.

The comic is indeed set in an MMO. I've given immense thought over PC Death. When a player get's killed, there's a 5% chance he'll come back as a zombie and a 10% chance he'll come back as a ghost. Priests, if high enough level, can cast a spell to bring back PCs to life or change their condition from zombie or ghost to normal.
Certain spells in the Necromancy spell tree allow players to bring back other players to life...as a ghost or zombie. A certain upgrade allows the Mage to set it so unless the revived player does exactly as he wants, the Player will die once more.
Resting/Eating/Drinking are in fact in the game, in an optional hardcore mode. The Giantitp Server does not have Hardcore Mode activated. The setting of the game often comes into play. At one point, there will be an ENTIRE story arc revolving around the newest expansion pack unleashed: Invaders from the Second Dimension.

I'll add you all to the permissions list in one moment. However, there's one slight problem. The permission thread is for characters going to be PCs. I will include the talking pen, but I'm sorry to say that you'll have to come up with another character, Leaking.

GuyFawkes
2011-07-02, 12:01 PM
Ooh! I would like to be a part of this please! I hereby grant thee permission to make me into V of V for Vendetta clone that uses two pistols(instead of two blades, basically his class would be gunslinger)! I requested this for my avatar but no one has picked it up yet, maybe you can make it yourself? I'd really appreciate it, and if you would allow it I'd be using it as my avatar. All credits will be given of course. :smallbiggrin:

I also have a suggestion for his personality but feel free to ignore this.
For his personality, he'd be like a total ripoff, trying to fighting evil and being good at it. He also tries to imitate the way V speaks but he fails at this miserably. Also his race is a mystery, even he doesn't know himself since he has been wearing the Guy Fawkes mask as long as he can remember and hasn't tried to take it off ever. You could maybe use this as a running gag. :smallbiggrin:
Love what I've read so far! Good job man! Keep it up! Take everyone's suggestions into consideration without of course giving up your own style, and this would only get better and better.

Maxios
2011-07-02, 01:23 PM
To Ashtix: Don't worry, I'll add you and the others to the list in one moment.

I give you permission to use me. Must be a Death Knight who uses a guitar to cast spells and wields a sword (It can be any sharp weapon from a meat cleaver to a katana) I have no idea how to describe my avatars race. Mansized Dracolich maybe?) Meh, I'll leave that up to you, but either way he should still have this: Prone to excruciating bursts of pain before turning into a real dracolich upon severe emotional/mental breakdowns.

Lither
2011-07-07, 12:52 AM
I give you permission to use me as an evil villain who can't quite grasp the fact that being an evil villain means being evil.

Welknair
2011-07-10, 11:14 AM
I give you permission to use me in the comic. I'd prefer if he were to act like I do. You know, rational, smart, occasionally funny and generally competent. My avatar is some sort of Ranger/Rogue/Dread Commando/Fighter-thingy. Mostly I stab things or shoot them and then they're dead.

Salbazier
2011-07-11, 04:41 PM
Whoa, this is fun. You sure you can handle this many Playgrounder appearing in the comic. I sure give you permission to use me (more like I request you to make me appear in the comic) :smallbiggrin: (just make it a spellcaster of sort)

Maxios
2011-07-13, 10:32 PM
List updated

Ramsus
2011-07-21, 08:09 PM
I give you permission to use me in the comic. Preferably as a Beguiler style spellcaster (so lots of enchantment and illusion spells but knows other stuff too).

Optional stuff: Often not really being where he's shown as speaking from and occasionally impersonating the Server. Will side with heroes, villains, or NPCs depending on what would be most amusing. Possibly all of them at once. Took a weird trait (from some special edition of the game perhaps) that causes beneficial items to act as if cursed for him and cursed items to act as beneficial.

I give permission to appear in this comic. :smallbiggrin:

You can give "me" any class you want as long as it doesn't rely on spell-casting alone (like a Ranger or Paladin) or isn't a spell-caster at all (Gunslinger, Thief, Fighter etc).

Moral alignment isn't a big issue, but "I" do want to be ruthless anti-hero, a jerk with a heart of gold, possibly a Heroic Sociopath or Guile Hero (the heroic version of the scheming Magnificent Bastard). He - or I - should have a soft spot for Good- and non-evil-aligned monsters, but not be a monster himself (otherwise it wouldn't have much impact, I think).

PS. The "H" in my user name stands for "Hammer". It's what Marcus means in Latin, if you wonder. :smallsmile:

The Mad Hatter

Mira_Man
2011-09-11, 11:44 PM
I give you permission to use me in your comic thusly:

I must appear as a gender-ambigous elfin ranger with multiple personalities including, (but not limited to); a bellgerant bowman, a pacifistic dual-weilding swordsman, a priest of a CE war god, the nun of a LG deity, a nymphomanic singer, an eight-year-old girl, a ninety-nine year old man, an obessed libarian and an illeterate monk.

Assuming it is not to much trouble.

NOTE: None of the personalities are aware of each other, nor do they have different names, i.e. they all have the same name.
Enjoy.

Hello, I just found this comic but I already think it is an amazing idea!

I give you, Maxios, permission to use me in your (awesome) comic! :smallsmile:

I must appear as a strange looking man, who appears seemingly out of nowhere to help people in their time of need. (not always actual danger, sometimes moral dilemmas as well and such) He helps both the heroes and villains, usually in strange ways.

He is also known to be a prankster and will often leave surprises (both funny and annoying) lying around, when he is in prank mode he wears a troll face mask.

I give you permision as I would like to appear too. Would like to be a 16 years old Party tank Crusader (or a Paladin that fits the neutral-good alignment if there's no crusader) that uses Leeroy Jenkins tactics (and yells "leeroy jenkins when rushing in) but goes through out of sheer defense. Also likes stomping undead like Isaac Clarke.

Permission (request) to appear granted (pleaded). I want to be a blackguard (or deathknight type thingy as this has been thrown around by a few others, think anti-paladin, you know, knight with dark unholy magics) who is likely NE on the alignment grid, but thinks of himself as N, he just does whatever he sees as most practical at the time, which may or may not involve face heel turns (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FaceHeelTurn), mercenary work, or selling his sword arm/soul to the highest bidder.

I am fine with being a lieutenant to a villain, possibly even being a villain of my own eventually, but I do not want to be genre blind (unless blinded by greed, or over rationalizing something, like religion, or artifacts, or planar stuffs, etc...). Actually, humor rocks, do what is funny!

Dark Elf Bard
2011-12-20, 12:31 PM
I will give you permission to make me a satyr rogue who will probably fall in love with the first female character he sees. Being extremely handsome for a guy with goat legs, the female will probably fall for him as well. This satyr is nice to everybody, but especially to his girlfriend (if he gets one). He will not cheat on her, ever.(By the way, I love your work, Maxios.)

I'd like to appear in it too, should be fun. If possible, as a wizard-scientist responsible for the creation of some weird monster.

Permission granted to depict me as a drunken irish pickpocket who is hopeless at pickpocketing and yet tries to anyway.

I grant permission to have me appear as disgruntled, gunslinging werewolf action hero. (Duke Nukem-esque)

I give my permission to appear as an irritable, morally-ambiguous cyborg mage, generally trying to keep reality in working order-and probably beating the crap out of the odd arc villain in the meantime.

I give permission to appear as the somewhat mental tank-like character who says helpful, albeit odd, things most of the time. And I want to be carrying a huge arse sword. Preferably, many jokes come from an excessively high HP pool.

As long as my OTP counterpart is wearing a beret and has the Union Flag being the colour scheme for the armour (Or clothes, or whatever), I am happy.

I give permission to use me as a villain that has very high mental stats but low physical ones, preferably with jokes made about my weakness physically. I would also like to always wear a black cloak that hides my race which will never be revealed. I would be a mage that almost exclusively uses time magic like time stop, celerity, and slow. I would pretend to be a good guy and, try slowly gain power for myself through schemes. Also please don't make me a very minor character.
