Special thanks to The Giant for partial inspiration and website hosting.
Special thanks to Zarah for helping me with the formatting and image hosting advice.
Special thanks to Phase for coming up with the title.

I update once every week on Sunday, or more if I have excessive amounts of free time that week. Regular updates will begin on Sunday, September 6.

Looks pretty good. A little overdone though, as we've seen adventuring parties fifteen-billion times before in fan-made comics.

The new style is certainly refreshing.

Also, why are the Orcs and half-orcs always the idiots. There are smart Orcs too, you know. The one in my comic is intelligent.

Just to be picky, in comic number 3 it should be "the artist" not "the animator". The comic isn't an animation after all.

I based it on a recurring joke me and my brother had about Krusk, the orc in the player's handbook. I was gonna name the characters Krusk, Regdar, and all those people, but decided against it.

Plus, barbarians don't need intelligence, and Half-orcs/orcs get a -2.

So the orc in your comics has 16 tops, and Paladins don't even need intelligence. They need Wis for casting, Cha for turning, Str for attacking, Con for living, and maybe the lightly armored ones need Dex for dodging. They are NOT the skillmonkeys.

On a different note, I already have a lot of the jokes planned out for the next ten pages, so expect the best, and if it's not funny, then sorry.:smallamused:

Good point. If I see an error in the comics, I will go back and change them.

I'll change that after the contest, though, so that I can stick it in at the same time as the Title and Special thanks update.

Non-stickfigure, didn't brickwall do that?

Lyinginbedmon
2008-03-30, 10:33 AM
I suppose technically speaking we could say that Brickwall's comic isn't "on the forums", since it's hosted on DeviantArt, which gives each image it's own page, rather than a filehoster and just posting the comic or a link to the image, as virtually every other comic does..

Szilard
2008-03-30, 10:35 AM
Guess your right, maybe.
I think I saw this comic somewhere else, did you post it in the webcomics forum?

Bayar
2008-03-30, 10:41 AM
Looks good. But try not to break the 4th wall. That is the main reason why comics lose fans. they re-use gags and stereotypes.

Waiting for a new one now :smallbiggrin:

Yeah, but someone told me to move it here. It gets way more views way more quickly.

On the webcomics forum, it had 300 views and like 5 responses after 4 weeks.

Here, it has 11 views and 11 responses after an hour.:smallsmile:

Also; New comic will be up in like 30 mins, tops. I'm adding the speech bubbles, and the formatting is all done.

Green-Shirt Q
2008-03-30, 12:11 PM
In page 4, the first panel, the speech bubbles are pointing to the wrong people. I think. If they are pointing to the right people, that would make these characters quite confusing indeed.

Wreckingrocc
2008-03-30, 12:21 PM
*Pulls out a 'Men In Black Memory Flasher', puts on sunglases, and flashes everyone*

Sir, you must have been reading it wrong then. The bold, 16 font speech bubble is clearly pointing to Grogg, and the normal, 12 font speech bubble is clearly pointing to Kent.

Szilard
2008-03-30, 12:39 PM
Takes of sunglass. Yes that was an illusion created by the sun being refracted by Venus's atmonshpere.

Wreckingrocc
2008-03-31, 06:38 PM
Okay, I got two characters that will be a couple of important NPCs that the story will follow at certain periods of time. They're basically the 'Comedic Relief' characters (not really since it's all supposed to be funny. They are Kobolds who end up altering the plotline without actually encountering the characters. Here they are:

They look cute, but shouldnt they be a more light color, one with yellow and red? Unless they are Swamp kobolds or other deviations of the base race.

They're forest Kobolds, but I did try the light color; it looks a little tacky. These are based on my cartoony paint versions, and I wanna know if I should change to a realsitic style to see if it looks better :smallbiggrin: Does it?

Also, I've posted the Monster Manual's image of a Kobold. I think the skin is a little darker than Rich Burlew's Kobolds.

dallas-dakota: Seconded. And making them larger gives us a better view on the art:smalltongue:

Check.

2008-04-01, 07:42 PM
Heh. I like it so far. One thing, however: Try not to overuse Grogg. He's really funny, but if he's your only source of humor, he'll get old fast. Not only that, but he'll overshadow your other characters.

Of course, it's only four strips in. It's looking great so far.

DarkCloud
2008-04-01, 09:27 PM
It's okay, but Grogg is too overblown- he's so in your face that it's annoying and difficult to see why the others even put up with him at all... either tone him down or make him indispensible... right now he's so stupid that I'd be worried to have him at my back, personally.

Devigod
2008-04-02, 02:39 PM
If Grogg were a bog, we would be in one harsh marsh!

Okay, not working, let's try another. Hmmm... If Grogg were a bog, we'd be 6 feet in some serious swamp soup.

Heh. Yeah. Mockingbyrd7 and Darkcloud nailed it. I third the opinion.

Wreckingrocc
2008-04-02, 07:50 PM
Yeah, Grogg won't be appearing in the next like, three issues because of his idiocy. After he learns to fight (see what I mean when I post it), Grogg becomes amazing, and the characters put up with him because he's a moron (i.e. convincing him that his platinum is silver so they can trade for it all)

Good idea.

(The ranger knows how to scent areas around the camp and hide the camp, so they'll be safe. It'll explain it better in the next comic involving Grogg and Avir.)

Or should I change the comic?

I see tentacles, sectioned eyes, and a bulbous main body/head, so I'm going to say whatever is up there is likely physically reminiscent of octopods.

Catharsis
2008-04-08, 03:56 AM
Three little things--

1) Nice spider indeed. :smallsmile:
2) The spell (ray of enfeeblement?) could use a bit more contrast. In the first reading, I didn't see it at all and thought that nothing happened in that panel.
3) What does indeaded mean?

Dallas-Dakota
2008-04-08, 08:55 AM
...I'm arachnophobic :smalleek:

Szilard
2008-04-08, 09:35 AM
indeaded- v. to have made indead.
indead- n. opposite of undead.
undead- n. a being previously dead brought back through evil means.
So indeaded is basically that they killed the spider.:smallsmile:

Wreckingrocc
2008-04-08, 04:59 PM
Yeah, I updated #8. Thanks for the criticism. It really helped :smallbiggrin:

I kinda cheated on the spider though. I used 'Google Image Search', copy+paste, then traced.:smalltongue:

I made the spell (supposed to be magic missile) look more contasting and I aimed it at the spider's head instead.

Indeaded was supposed to be a made up way to say 'Killed', but, Szilard, did you assume that or is it a real term?

Thanks for the Spider compliments, too. I did the eyes/hair myself :smallbiggrin:

Szilard
2008-04-08, 06:46 PM
No, I made that up, I assumed indeaded was the opposite of undeaded.

Wreckingrocc
2008-04-09, 03:52 PM
Sorry to the fans (Do I really have any fans?), but comic #9 will be delayed due to large amounts of things to do. The next one should be up Saturday, and for all those people who for some reason like knowing what to expect,(Not what material is in it, just what it's about):the next comic will be about looting the spider. Yes. It has loot. Look it up in the Monster manual.But between now and then, feel free to debate anything about the comic (or anything not about the comic if it means keeping this thread up there on the Arts & Crafts Forum for the sake of extra views/fans:smallbiggrin: ).

Okay, for my Webcomic secret Easter Bunny, the person who had me didn't make one. To compensate, Onasuma (the host) made a short one for me. Say thank you to Onasuma, everyone! (Crowd: Thank you, Onasuma!)

Slice n Dice by Onasuma
http://i119.photobucket.com/albums/o151/pal153/Sliceendice.png

Also, as a side note: Surprisingly, I based Grogg on a recurring joke me and my brother had about half orcs and barbarians, long before reading OOTS. The name is a coincidence, too, as you may read in a later issue.

Onasuma: For an on-the-spot guest strip, you did great! :smallsmile:

If my Secret Easter bunny ends up making one, I'd have two! :smallbiggrin:

The fourth panel was really confusing, what with all the speech bubbles, but I think I worked it out.

Oregano
2008-06-26, 07:37 PM
Yer, the fourth panel was hard to follow, I assume you read this comic downward rather than across to the right like most comics?

Wreckingrocc
2008-06-26, 07:42 PM
Well, I couldn't figure out how to do it, so I assumed connecting panels would connect in time. To clarify:http://img47.imageshack.us/img47/441/diagramcr2.png
Should I redo it?

Oregano
2008-06-26, 07:47 PM
It's not that hard to figure out when you realise something's wrong but I would recommend redoing it, but if it's being read downward you only really need to move the top right bubble down a bit I suppose. It may be better to lose some of the dialogue if it's too cramped.

Wreckingrocc
2008-06-26, 07:56 PM
I redid it. Thanks for the heads up, you two. :smallsmile:

Sorry about the double post... I'm returning home today after being up north for two weeks without my desktop (which has inkscape). My laptop is a mac, and though there is a mac version of inkscape, it requires x11, which my mac self terminated because it thought it was a virus. I can't download a new one because it didn't delete the record of it still having it, etc.

Anyway, expect a new comic tonight if I get lucky, or sometime tomorrow otherwise. Sorry to keep you all waiting :smallfrown:.

Well, I didn't end up finishing the comic... 2 more panels to go. I'd post what heppened so far, but you kinda need the full thing to get the joke(s) in it. I'm sorry. I have been in Japan for 2 weeks, and now I'm going up north... Sorry. I'll have it posted in about 2 more weeks.

...Ok. I had a brief stop back home, and I was able to finish comic #14. It's been a while since anyone has posted here, but it hasn't been TOO long. At least, I don't think it has :smalltongue:

Comic 14 is up nonetheless, though! Better yet, I have an official posting schedule I will try to follow. Starting Sunday, September 6, I will be posting a new comic once every week on Sunday. If I happen to finish an extra in advance, I will keep it as a coushin for if I forget to make one on a later date. If I have several finished at once by Sunday, I may sometimes post more than one comic. As soon as I can get my own laptop (or bootcamp for our mac, as the x11 version of inkscape is hopeless), I will be able to post on vacation and while up north.

Thank you to everyone for waiting so long. I am sorry I am so slow and have so little access to my computer :P

Clearly he's trying to reduce the amount of numbing the little kid takes in relation to violence.

Alternatively, he's increasing it because he'll think people stabbed in the face bleed clown faces :smalltongue:

What the.... Imageshack deleted the file. It's still 'there', but the image is now gone. I'll reload it when I get access to my desktop (Monday Night).

Well, I'm very close to a month behind schedule, and I'm gonna make a new comic soon (if I don't procrastinate again.)

Sorry to keep everyone waiting again.

The Randomizer, however, has made a really freakin' sweet guest comic for the back-to-school secret santa. Enjoy!http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll246/EmperorIng/SDending.png

Double post :P

Anyway, the comic is finally done. Only a little more than two weeks late! Enjoy!

What made her think an eagle could hold a full-grown man in mid-air?

And she calls herself a ranger!

hmmmmmmmmmm.........sorry this doesn't seem funny, I see nothing but a bunch of stereotypes and a normal adventure story, there isn't really anything about it that makes it funny, unique art will get you nowhere if your jokes are no good, and theres little character interaction, not a lot of depth.

I apologize if I sound like a jerk, but that is all I see in it.

OotS has made it the past one hundred strips without being funny.

SnD is sort of a different sense of humor. It's either very funny or not funny. Or it's not funny the first time through, but funny when you look at the random stupidity in the character's logic and plans. The major issue is lack of development, though (I think). Each one takes about six hours to do, and each only has 8 panels. It takes a very long time to do, and you can't rapid fire jokes when each panel takes forty five minutes to make. I have many ideas, but it may take a while to actually get to the pace where I can churn them out. (Chapter one was originally supposed to have about 20 pages, but at this rate it's looking like it's going to be at least 30).

mmmmmmmmm...........mistake.
if you didn't reply to that, I wouldn't have to argue with you, I hate arguing its not productive.

OOTS has been just as funny as it has always been, its just that everyone else has let little details ruin the whole experience for them, I have not, and I know the whole arc is necessary to the plot, if I were in Rich's position I would done this subplot just like this regardless of peoples opinions.

as I have focused on the good things that has been happening in the comic recently, I have not let the little details ruin the experience of reading the comic, and I'm satisfied with how its going, I look at the big picture, and the big picture with OOTS is: good, I look at the big picture of Slice N' Dice, and I read bland.

I know this is a difference in opinion, not fact so I will refrain from arguing with you any longer as it might get the thread locked, and while I might not see the humor in it, someone else does, once again I apologize if I sound like a jerk when I say Slice N' Dice doesn't seem funny to me.

good day.

I give Slice and Dice a ranking of Needs Improvement. I rank my attitude toward the comic as Cautious Optimism. I rank Trizap as Troll Wearing Lipstick. I rank Nameless Grand King of the Pixies.

I rank this post Unnecessarily Random.

That is all.

*Sigh* trolly trolly Troll. You don't destroy the PHOTO, you need to destroy the negatives and any copies that had been made. of course nowadays, now that everybody has digitial cameras, a picture can be stored in hundreds of hidden places all over the world within seconds.

I'll make a new one soon. The only problem is the length. You can't do much with 8-panel comics, but when the art takes even longer... Six hours per 8 frames is rough. Once I get better and begin to be able to reuse images, it should improve. My planned jokes will get funnier than my improv, though.

Hey TnD, what's up? You're comics are coming along fine, I'm impressed. I'm working on my own, but they're not quite done. Actually, I've just started! :smallbiggrin:
Please note the purpose of this post is to give you a heads up that cousin chucks created an account!

Awesome!

I'll try to make a comic ASAP. I have been on vacation for four days without internet. I have a ton of homework tomorrow, and I have karate, so I probably won't be able to do it for awhile. Expect it by this Sunday, though.

I'm not entirely sure what she just did but certainly she's a crafty one

She jammed the spear between the doorknob, the torch, and the wall. Now, the door is jammed, and the kobolds are trapped inside. The spear is thick and sturdy enough that the kobolds cannot hope to force the door open without help from the outside. I'll probably make that more clear as she explains it to the group in a later comic. I made record time, though. This one took me less than 2 hours :smallsmile:

It might be more clear if in the last panel she wasn't standing in front of the door and spear. It would be more easily noticed that she jammed it there, and that she wasn't just standing there holding it or something.
