For those who didn't see it, the cast page went up yesterday. Just go to the main Erfworld comic page and click on the question mark icon at the top in the navigation bar.

Wow, I love it! They seem crazy enough for any good storyteller. Well done guys. Oh, and i love the Jetson's reference.

I liked the "Knowing what he/she wants."

These characters seem interesting. I can't wait for the comic, or a daily updating. :smallwink:

I like the fact that Ansom has a bigger head and stereotypical perfect comicbook eyes. Awesome.

Sizemore Rockwell, eh? Nice one, Rob. References to obscure yet awesome local bands (http://superbigcool.com/assrockers/index.shtml) can only add to the intrigue of the comic. I can see where the earnest dweeb look comes from, but you could have at least given him a fu manchu.

Heh, I borrowed only your names. I could never hope to capture the quintessence of Durt Sizemore and Riff Rockwell in the same character. The character comes from another source entirely. :smallwink:

I like it. Particularly Jillian. :smallbiggrin:

I see something inspired in Final Fantasy, though. Being a FF fan, I really find this very cool. :smallsmile:

Can't wait for the big premiere tomorrow. Yay for daily comics!

My only problem is Jillian's tagline:
"I never stabbed anything that didn't stop being an immediate problem."

So, don't stop being an immediate problem around Jillian or you will be stabbed. That's kind of scary. Things start becoming immediate problems just out of a sense of self preservation.

I have to admit I don't know any of the other works(given that I finally got DSL this spring you may imagine I'm quite new to webcomics) but the cast page was amusing enough that I'm looking forward to erfworld now.
(Is it there yet? Is it there yet ?)

The cast looks quite interesting, though a bit small of yet. I'm assuming that these are just the characters that appear in the first six comics, and that the cast list will expand as we meet more characters. Eagerly awaiting the upload of the first strip.

Hmm

Some of the descriptions reminded me a bit of Kingdom of Loathing, but I don't mind that. I love KoL :smallbiggrin: (The familiar feeling might also come from the fact I've been playing a lot of it lately.)

The castpage actually made me curious about Erfworld, so that's a good thing.

(For those who don't know the game KoL (http://www.kingdomofloathing.com))

Looking very good. This has reassured me immensely and I'm actually looking forward to the comic proper.

Those here who have played Rob's card game Get Nifty (http://www.getnifty.com/) will recognize the succinct and telling style of the Strengths and Weaknesses lists. And the mature, Times Roman font and generally proper spelling and grammar is evidence of seriousness of purpose, for those who need reassuring.

Hooray! Can't wait for the first comic!

:smallamused: Wanda Firebaugh looks awesome heh.

Also liked the knowing what he wants weakness and knowing what he wants strength.

Ooh, I like Jillian and Wanda, it's just good to see a sense of humor as a weakness, and hack-slash-carve-stabbity-chopchop as a strength.

"Scary hand puppets"? Could it be that Lord Stanley is an Orthodox Banjoist...or perhaps has heard the call of Banjulhu?

Hurray for the Arkenhammer's occupation. But can she reverse the polarity of the neutron flow?

Yes, I think the Arkenhammer is a girl. Go figure.

One of her strengths is heaving lightning, so I bet Arky can do anything that involves polarity. :smallbiggrin:

"Weakness: Sense of Humor" means she doesn't have one, I think.

Yeah, that character Jillian seems a bit too uncomfortably familiar to me. :smallwink:



And I have never been one for these kinda 'diet' coke posts, where one basically says nothing really that original or intellectual... beyond throwing laurels about for whomever.... But I do feel the need to say:

Good job guys, I am really looking forward to it.



Now, I have just made my first brown nosing post ever... I feel vaguely un-clean. :smallredface:
