    Default Murphy's Law

    So yeah. I'm making an OOTS-style webcomic. It's comedic, yet an ongoing storyline. It starts out with a multiclass Fighter/Paladin named Lloyd Zephyr looking to organize an adventuring party, and quickly mushrooms from there into something much bigger...

    So, yeah...Enjoy!

    MURPHY'S LAW

    They won't show up for a while. She's the last character to join the party. But it will be a long story arc.

    What did you like about this comic?

    Oh, and Astrid is a Neutral Good goddess of my own creation. Janine is Chaotic Good.

    Nice comic so far. You've done well making the characters dynamic rather than overly copying and pasting like a lot of fancomcs do. The jokes are also funny so far.

    Critique:

    What you could improve on is composition, especially with regards to the text/ speech bubbles.

    Some of the text looks a bit cramped up, and sometimes you haven't arranged it in a way that enforces how the character is speaking. For example, in the very first panel you could have split the text up into sentences and had the speech bubbles in the centre, since him talking is the only thing happening.

    You also don't need so much of the horse in the panel, especially if he's not doing anything. It just leads it being visually confusing when characters overlap.

    Do you plan out the panels before you start drawing with vectors? Doing a quick sketch might help.


    Keep up the good work! I'm looking forward to seeing more.

    Thanks for the input.

    Yeah, I'm still working with Inkscape. I'm really not sure how to do some of the finer stuff yet.

    I have the panels planned out in my head before I do it. I've got the next comic all planned out.

    Yes! Five webcomic makers I almost sorta kinda know!

    Is Remus going to be a main character? Deceptively useless animal companions are the best.

    Yes they are. I find it provides for a greater range of movement. It may be OOTS-style, but that doesn't mean I can't take some liberties to fit my own preferences.

    Apparently I haven't said anything yet, but I'll be watching this comic.

    Also, I almost got Murphy's Law mixed up with Godwin's Law when trying to remember what the title meant. Now I'm wondering how a webcomic based on Godwin's Law would work...
    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.

    By the way, you should set up your first post the same way I set up mine. Putting direct links in an archive and posting the newest one in image form. Otherwise, eventually the thread will slow down.

    He's actually a full orc.

    I'll probably do that around comic 6-8 or something.

    If so, then his strength would be 12 since he gets a +4 to strength and the standard starting stat is 8.
