    Default Bloodfire; the comic [page 5 up]

    This is Bloodfire, an OoTS-style, DnD-based comic. The action takes place into the homebrew world of Theneria, a place much like but at the same time very different than the Forgotten Realms.
    The standard DnD races and monsters pretty much fill the world but Theneria is a wilder place; large cities are far between, monsters are more numerous, adventurers are rarer and the humanoid races have, for the past millenium, been recovering from a Great War that nearly wiped them out.
    In this world, four emerging heroes will run a race against the sands of time to ensure a Big Bad Profecy doesn't come to pass. Bear with me; it's far less chiche than it sounds.

    Warning: Humor will usually extend beyond the DnD universe. So no, the blond, pink-wreathed, sword-bearing dude is not a caricature of any DnD character.

    Additional Warning: I'm a stats-nut; I even have sheets for my characters. So feel free to engage in level/stat geekery.

    Shouldn't this be under fancomics?
    Homebrew: The Guardian | Combat Pragmatist
    Animorphs-styled morphing rules for the Fate Core system!
    Coming Soon(?): WarMunchies, a candy-based wargame | Pokemon Four Suits

    The best answer is always to ask your DM.
    Unless you're the DM, in which case you should talk to your players.

    I'm not really sure... She wouldn't get the thread approved since she doesn't have any comic... This sounds more like a warm up for a comic yet to come.
    It's BACK!

    Also, please put the comic in a spoiler, it's all streen-stretchy as it is.

    OK, reduced the comic size a bit; I want to be keeping the last page unspoilered.

    Any comments on art and writing style yet? This is my first attempt at a comic and I want to improve.

    Dunno what's going on with the text. It looks just right in Inkscape but when I export as bitmap and put up at photobucket, it ends up fuzzy and hard to read.

    Contrary to the common misconception, making a stick comic isn't that easy. Case in point, page 4: Four thousand one hundred and eleven objects.

    Or maybe I'm just doing something wrong.

    What's with the "sort of"s? Is she a warlock or something?

    Cool. The text is still a bit small, but I think it's better(?).


    And as said, please spoiler it.

    Balial, I like it so far. If you'd like, I can try to help you get the quality up a bit higher, to the level of my strip. (Not that mine are that much better, mind you; if you saw my first-ever comic, you'd feel much better about your own.)

    I think I'm getting the hang of it. Actually making the comic larger vastly improves readability and I'm getting better at the stick-figure thing, too.
