Well I've got a lot of spare time on my hands between now and Saturday when I start my new job, so I had to think of a way as to not be bored out of my skull :)

So I devised Stick Wars. It's a parody of the OOTS characters in the Star Wars universe. There will be 5 strips in all, this first one being the shortest.

I'll post one a day, the final one being on saturday, as long as everything goes to plan. Here is Episode 1! Enjoy :)

Each time I try to look, it loads partially and then goes to the little x thinga-ma-bobber. No good. :-/


Oh, but if I view it while making a reply, I can actually view it.

did you mean to spell "wookie" incorrectly?

Estrogen
2005-07-06, 01:50 AM
Yes :) Hope that's ok with you, I would've asked first, but I wanted to get it up before I went to bed.

Of course, I have suddenly now gotten a second wind.

I hate irony >:(

When you are done you may want to send it the the fan art section as well.

You mean Emperor Xykon, surely? This is episode IV vintage it seems, not prequel era (and thanks for that!).

But, but V would look horrible in Golden!

It would clash with V's hair...

EvilWalks
2005-07-06, 07:58 AM
V would make a good C3PO. Genius, but without the abbility to ascertain gender.

Who will play Luke?

The Glyphstone
2005-07-06, 08:04 AM
V-3P0, perfect.
Belkar-D2, I guess.
Or Durkon-D2.

EvilWalks
2005-07-06, 08:08 AM
Belkar D-2
Dur-wan

Estrogen
2005-07-06, 10:26 AM
All of you are wrong :) Expect Episode 2 sometime later this afternoon.

wolf_mage
2005-07-06, 11:19 AM
I would have expected Belkar to be Luke. You know, struggles with evil/dark side and all.

And Durkon has to be R2-D2 or C-3PO, because he looks like a robot in his armour.

Starla

Belkar can't be Luke.



He's not blond.

Belkar doesn't have a struggle with evil/dark side because he has no light side to struggle with the Evil Darkness. ;)

I just want you to know....


I hate you all.

I'm the biggest SW freak here. I've got a 1976 Chewie action figure, and I was born in 1982.

And I can't see the stupid comic...(not stupid like that Ullii...I love your comic.)

Estrogen
2005-07-06, 10:59 PM
Wukei, I'm gonna save it in GIF format and see if you can see that. I'll edit this post in a minute once I've uploaded it.

Lilly
2005-07-06, 11:19 PM
From what I can gather, Wukei may have a problem seeing things that are hosted on imageshack.

Wukei: You said somewhere that you can't see any of Sneak's avatars, can you see anything else that is hosted on imageshack?

Wukei
2005-07-06, 11:21 PM
Actually, I was gathering that same thing. No, I have not been able to see anything from imageshack. It is an evil evil program and I hate it >:(

Thanks, Ullii, for being so helpful toward me and trying your utmost to make it where I can enjoy your mini-series. ;)

Me too, it's a really recent thing. Like, yesterday or today recent. I wonder what's up...

Estrogen
2005-07-06, 11:26 PM
I had them all stored on my own webspace at first, but my server has gone down AGAIN! I know of another image hosting website. I'll try that out and see how it works. Expect another post again shortly.

...uhoh.. this leave Durkon to play ... Luke :o ???

Estrogen
2005-07-07, 12:38 PM
Yea, I know I mixed the two time periods. And I have a very special role for Durkon. It's already been guessed :)

Well I had pretty much the worst night of my life, last night. Last week, I was sick, and the day after I got better, I got really sick again. Yesterday wasn't TOO bad, but I don't know if I'm gonna be able to make Episode 3 today. I'll keep popping tylinol, and hopefully I'll feel good enough to make it. Episode 1 took 5 hours, and Episode 2 took 9 hours to make, and Episode 3 is as long as Episode 2, so...

Well anyway, I'll make it as soon as I can.

And I'm really glad all you guys are enjoying this :)

Nice job!

I had a similar idea, and made Rich a guest strip (a little too late for Sprained Wrist Theater, though) from it. You can check it out here if interested:

Ulii, yours is excellent, but I have to admit Seidaku's had me laughing out loud ;D

Peregrine
2005-07-07, 03:26 PM
I'm with Gorby. ;D Seidaku's is more like an OotS strip, putting all the gags together, but Ullii's has the appeal of a multi-part strip (and Yokar!) and I can't wait for the rest.

I had a similar idea using Lord of the Rings, but I wonder if it wouldn't be too derivative now... errm, even more derivative than being based off OotS and LotR, that is... :P

Kelmon
2005-07-07, 04:04 PM
Please, you two, stop doing more comic strips - or do you want to put Rich out of business??? ;D

Seriously, they both made ma laugh really hard - especially when the both "new" Belkars are introduced. Great work!

Mad_Max

I bet Yokar could have kicked the Emperors butt in Episode III. ;D

That is great Seidaku, it looks just like Rich's work! It'd be great to see more of your work. Ulli yours is great to... hehe Yokar is exactly the opposite of Yoda (Yoda, the Jedi Shrink)

EDIT: I really need to proofread my posts, e.g. It'd be great to see more you.

Thanks for all the positive comments, guys! I'm glad you enjoyed the strip. I'd be more than happy to create some more comics in this vein (assuming Rich takes no offense, of course), if people would like to read them. I have at least a few more ideas on how to exploit Star Wars d20 OotS style ;-)

As far as mine goes;

I've got scripts made, but I am waiting to hear back from Rich before creating the comics. They're his characters, and I don't want to use them in more fancomics without permission.

Read Heir to the Empire, Dark Force Rising and The Last Command By Timothy Zahn. Then you'll know what a noghri is. Plus they are the BEST Star Wars Novels since Ep. 4,5 and 6.

Must have more Stick Wars........ ;D

The Glyphstone
2005-07-11, 06:29 AM
Oh, that noghri. That's also the name of a abberant race from Lords of Madness, so I was confused. Oddly enough, Belkar would fit as that kind of noghri too...

short gray killing machine, only aspect belkar doesn't fit in is the fact that they're all fanatically loyal to the current generation of Vader's kids.
Plus the fact that they aren't raving homicidal maniacs. And have a very strong honor code. And they have good senses. And they're very good at stealth. And they're much better in a fight (yes, Belkar's not bad, but definitely not noghri-level).

Well, they're short. And favor daggers. But those are really the only resemblances.

more similarities than ewok, which is true to my statement and I am still right.

more similarities than ewok, which is true to my statement and I am still right.
Ewoks are also short, and use daggers. So no. Belkar is no more similar to a Noghri than he is to an Ewok. Far less so, in fact.

Ilaun_Undil
2005-07-12, 09:31 AM
ewoks are short , but cute. Belkar on the other hand, not so cute. However he might make an ugly ewok though.

evileeyore
2005-07-12, 08:45 PM
Don't forget Ewoks are nasty viscious. Remember they wanted to eat Han, Luke, and Chewy.

Just like Belkar wanted to harvest the Goblin's kidneys for resale on the blackmarket.

Plus Ewoks took out the Imperial Scout forces on Endor like a bunch of furry sociopathic ninjas, just like Belkar killed the Goblin Ninja in single combat and the Hag with a "Death From Above" Battletech manuever.

Ewoks have short tempers and like to poke things with spears. Belkar has a short temper and likes to poke things with daggers.

Ewoks are hard to understand and natural scouts. Belkar is easy to understand and has trouble finding the exit sign.

Ewoks don't wear shoes. Many of them have short capes that blend into their surroundings.

Ewoks are furry. Belkar is fuzzy. They are both short.

Plus Ewoks would be a shoe in as Rangers.

So I would say there are a lot of things that Belkar and Ewoks have in common.

I have a very very special offer for you all *turns off salesman speech* I have a website with more space than I have any use for, if you want I could host Stick Wars and the extra sprained wrist theater w/ no problems. I haven't had any problems with it yet (aside from an annoying page editor) so it should work.

Let me know what you think...

Wukei
2005-07-14, 08:38 AM
Wow, JD, that'd be so cool.

I'd host people, but I can't even get life-for-death.com to work for me!

2005-07-14, 10:56 AM

Are you saying you get infinite hosting from freewebs? 'Cause I've had experience with it. You can't hotlink with it, but otherwise, I guess there is no limit. Though you can only upload one image at a time unless you pay :(

Why don't you motivate other people to sign up for freewebs accounts? Get more satisfaction when they rely on you? Or do you want to save freewebs the webspace?

Kulatu
2005-07-15, 02:26 AM
As far as I know you can host anything on freewebs, but there is a 50 megabyte limit. I think.

I hate redundancy.

Also, I just now noticed that in episode 2, V tilts the cup of milk when si/the hands it to Yokar. Does this mean that the cup was not full, since it would've spilled out being tilted that way?! Or maybe they use futuristic can-cups that don't spell when that happens. I dunno.

I've read Ricks comics for a long time now, but I just recently figured that there is a forum too. Then I found The Stick Wars. And now I just have to check this forum every day if the latest comic would've been posted. Good work Ullii, you got me. Just cant wait for the next Stick Wars, but hey, the animatons that Sneak pointed out help a little.

Ok, here's the deal

I had all my money stolen from out of my bank account somehow, as I may have mentioned before, I'm not sure. Anyway, the last few days, I've been on phone with the bank, going to the bank in person over and over again, kicking teeth in trying to get my money back. The bank, for some reason, is having a lot of trouble with it, and my rent is due very soon, and i'm out of groceries, and it's been overall very stressful. Everyone I've talked to so far has been an immigrant (which I'm totally ok with) who cannot understand or speak a word of freaking english (wich I hate very much), and all of them are accusing me of attempted fraud, trying to get money back that I actually spent myself. None of these half-wits can seem to get it through their head that if I had spent $3,500.00, I would HAVE THINGS TO SHOW FOR IT! And I have no idea how I'm going to pay my rent, because I JUST got a job.

So skip to current events, the bank's investigative branch claims that they are "looking into it", and my landlady has assured me that we'll be able to work something out, and my parents are comming out on sunday to buy me groceries, so i'm sure everything's going to be OK.

That said, I work at 6am.... it's 5am now... I haven't slept yet... work is gonna suck lots... drinking lots of coffee....... prolly gonna sleep as soon as I get home.... parents comming on sunday..... work monday and tuesday....... I'll work on it during monday and tuesday when I'm not working, and it'll hopefully be up tuesday or wednesday.

Sorry for the waiting guys, I'm SOOO sorry I'm taking so long, and I'm really flattered that you've stuck around :) I promise I'll do it as soon as possible.

Ullii must be a Capricorn. Capricorn's stars are out of alignment right now. This wouldn't be so bad for any other sign, due to the fact that stars being out of alignment go from 1-2 days to about a month. However, Capricorns are the children of Saturn, and therefore unfortunate enough. But their star alignment can be out for up to 40 years.

I feel sorry for you, hun. *gives her cookie to Sneak*

(I have no true belief in this system. All that I've said was in sem-jest. However, for those that do believe in this system, I actually do know about it and can tell you that that's the actual rules for Capricorn and its alignment.)

I was reading through this and I absolutely love this comic you drew. You are very talented in Illustrator, props on it. Only one thing that bothers me, haley has no midrift. In starwars, every female Twi'lek has there midrift showing. Even the jedi one in episode 2 & 3. Otherwise excellent, hope you do more.

Bank troubles? There's an old text adventure named Bureaucracy that was written by Douglas Adams that was inspired by his attempts to get his bank to recognize his change of address. Playing the game requires you to deal with such horrors as bank tellers, airline food, conspiracy theorists, Muzak, stamp collectors, and every other minor inconvenience you've ever experienced blown up to ridiculous proportions.

You can find it on some "abandonware" web sites - it (along with a good FAQ for some of the very obscure puzzles) might help relieve some stress.

You may be right about the movies; I'll have to take your word for it. However, in Star Wars d20 (which I was parodying), there are instances of female Twi'lek who are fully clothed. Check out page 23 of the Power of the Jedi sourcebook, for instance.

Of course not Seidaku, you are very talented! I love your comics very much! Good to know that the food poisoning wasn't too serious.

Bit of an update, got the groceries today. Good news: I'll have enough money for my share of next month's rent. Bad News: My roommate still doesn't have a job, and has spent the last of his money of a bottle of 95% proof Alcahol called Everclear. So I've given him one week to get a job or else he gets kicked out. He's a good friend, but I need a roommate that can pay their share. I mean, I lost ALL my money, and I still managed to get a job and get enough for my share this month, AND $100 of HIS share!

Conclusion: Things getting better, although that might just be the booz.

Bank News: I called them again for an update on their progress, and they knew nothing about it. After I finally got to speak with someone who could speak fluently in a language I can understand, I found out that I have to go back to my old town, which is my home branch, in order to sort all of this out. My old town is a 1 1/2 hour drive away, and I don't have a car, and I can't run 100 Km/h so I'm pretty much screwed.

For the record, NEVER do business with CIBC. That is the name of the bank. CIBC. Tell all your friends to burn down every CIBC they find.

With matches.

Was really sad to learn about Rich being in the hospital. I wish he would have told us what it was that made him collapse, but that's his choice. Good to hear he's feeling better, and hope it isn't too serious.

Well I have a few things to do tomorrow, but I should be able to make the strip. I have learned, though, not to make promises :) so no promises.

Thanks for all the kind words, and I'll talk (via text of course) to you all tomorrow :)

Ah, Everclear. That made Freshman year so much more enjoyable. All the kick of twice its volume in vodka, and for about half the price. Too bad it tasted like rubbing alcohol.

Yeah, this is pretty offtopic...oh well.

And it's at the top of the page. Oh well. I hope your situation gets cleared up soon. Just so you know, I've banked with Chas all my life (well, for the two years I've has a checking account) and never had a problem, even with their emphasis on internet banking, which is naturally rather unsecure.

The last two weeks have probably been the most skitzo weeks of my life.

From everything going down the drain very quickly, to what has happened now. Ok I'll explain:

I went back to my hometown to deal with the bank, where they told me pretty much that I'm screwed because there's no way to prove anything due to all of the purchases being from places in my area. This resulted in me being very pissed off, to say the least. I had to get a job very fast, and I got one at 7-eleven, where I spent a few days in training before they told me that I'd start off on part time for a few weeks, even though I was hired as full time, and the boss knew about my money and debt situation. Last tuesday I looked at my schedule and found out that they had changed things around, and my next shift was the friday of the NEXT WEEK!

Well, I wasn't very happy, and neither was my landlady, so I started looking for a new job, going to all the hotels in the area (i live near an airport, so there's lots) and asking for a nightshift job, because my roommate got a nightshift job at a hotel about a week ago. I never heard back from them, and got shoed away when I went to talk to them, so I was feeling pretty depressed.

After comming home from trying to get an interview at the Holiday Inn accross the street, I sit on my computer, and I get a message on my MSN. I accept the invitation, and the guy on the other end introduces himself as the Human Resources Manager of a Web Design company in the UK. He says that they came across my portfolio, and were impressed, and wanted to take me on as a graphics designer.

(my portfolio: www.jamiepeters.net)

That was on Friday. By the way, there is Insane money in graphic design!

So my friend Thomas calls me and asks if me and my roommate Brian want to go on a Camping-Roadtrip to BC (British Columbia, Canada) for the long weekend. I accepted, and we left on friday evening, and just got back now. It was really good for me, and got me really excited about moving to Victoria BC in two months from now.

So I'm still going to get a night-shift job here in Calgary for the next two months, then October 1st when my lease expires, I'm moving. Hopefully this job works out, and I'll make lots of money, because it would be just what I need, plus it's my DREAM JOB! Also, I got two seperate website contracts from word-of-mouth which I'm working on now, so I'm rather busy. Not to mention I still owe my friend Nick a website for his Artwork Portfolio.

Stick Wars... what will I do. I really don't see how I'm going to be able to make them. Don't expect them any time soon, at lease. I'll do them if I have some free time, and post it here, so just keep an eye on my sig, and if it says Episode 3 finished, you'll know I've finally done it.

I'm really sorry for all of this; it's been really hecktic, and with these new prospects for the near future, I can't see myself with a lot of free time in the next while.

You can throw tomatoes at me now :-/

I'm sorry..but it took over a month to figure this one out?
Why can't it just be on hiatus?

I believe there are a number of webcomics and at least one manga that have sporadic publication--they make no pretense of having a schedule.

Stick Wars is (as I see it) fundamentally a vehicle for inside jokes combined with crossover humour. Its audience is going to be fairly selective. If Ulli wants to do a couple of comics each quarter, I think that's fine.

Yokar still slays me.
