    Default My webcomic "Thieves can't"

    Me and a buddy have been making webcomics for years now and I recently started my passion project. Thieves can't, a 5e D&D comic with the best art I can muster, some great gags, and building into an epic adventure, I hope. I would love it if you would take a look and tell me what you think.

    Sadly I am new to the forum and can't add links yet :(

    Googling thieves can't or going to ramen-empire.com will get you there. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    That was much better in both writing and art than I was expecting, given the new-profile-timidly-asks-for-critiques introduction. Those usually lead to "you had to be there jokes" and mspaint stick figures, but here led to a solid comic I had even seen a few pages somewhere before.

    Not much to discuss, just a solid, fun, adventure style comic.

    Definitely agreeing with the above sentiment. Really good art, solid jokes, interesting characters... Already bookmarked, looking forward to seeing where it goes.

    Thank you for the kind words. I am good at the art but not so much with the self promotion.

    I second the above reviews. Maybe you could start by interacting enough in the comic until you actually can post image/link, and post link and example page from your webcomic

    I'm glad to see new comics; I had stopped checking your site.

    If you're new to here: "Ramin Empire" and "Thieves Can't" are two very different comics at the same site.

    RE starts at http://ramen-empire.com/strip/afterglow_cover/
    It is the story of a foreign student living with an American family. In the words of a famous fictional figure: "Not everyone is exactly who he or she appears to be". It starts with a film class, and learning english translation issues.

    Ramen Empire is about college students who make movies at Alexandria University, with a touch of the fantastic and supernatural sprinkled on top. Its main characters are a Chinese exchange student, a woman rebelling from her super-Christian father, and a cadre of wanna-be film makers. At its heart, Ramen Empire is a serial drama who’s thesis statement is to model what healthy and healthful relationships can look like, even in bad situations and moments of awkwardness.
    TC starts at http://ramen-empire.com/strip/thieves-cant/
    At the moment, there's only the introduction to the campaign, unless there's a section I've missed.
    So you'll insert the horse into the Large Hadron Collider next?

    Thieves Can't - not bad but not much out yet can't tell where it is going, the drawback with stories about actual games is that I am less invested in the story so they need good jokes instead.


    Ramin Empire - Like it so far, the second chapter really has much more weirdness.

    Seems to lack a proper comic only rss though. Well the main one will have to do I guess.

    I'm actually enjoying the rough style, honestly. It's more fitting to the "this is a D&D game" tone of the comic and the casual writing style. It's a nice surprise; thanks for sharing it!

    Hmm. Something's wrong.

    If you start at the beginning, and go comic by comic, you get the first chapter of Thieves Can't, at http://ramen-empire.com/strip/thieves-cant/

    This goes to http://ramen-empire.com/strip/thieves-cant-5/, and you never see another episode of thieves can't.

    I just found out that there is another chapter. If you start at http://ramen-empire.com/thieves-cant...ne-life-story/, you get a different set of comics, that continues with http://ramen-empire.com/thieves-cant...-kill-goblins/

    Ya, I can't figure out the website at all. Laughed at a few of the jokes in the first(?) section (where the two guys meet the two women), but have no idea if there's more or where to go to find it.

    Hate to say it, but the website would convince me never to return, even if the comic is good.

    Alright, here's an update that confuses me.

    http://ramen-empire.com/thieves-cant...ing-of-course/

    At first, I was thinking that this was the mother of the person whose house they are at, trying to provide some refreshments. Heck, the end of the comic looks like someone going home.

    And yet, it's supposed to be splitting the party -- not a case of real-life showing up in the comic, but the party is actually doing this.

    I am confused here.

    The Hag that they are coming across offers them refreshments, and the barbarian decides to straight up attack, for predictable results. The Paladin goes to help the Barbarian while the rest of the party decides to be good guests.

    Update on the Phoenix story in Ramen:

    Turns out that Phoenixes in this universe are not quite as nice as normally portrayed.

    New episode, and a look at what it means to be a curse or a blessing.

    It is one thing to suspend your disbelief. It is another thing entirely to hang it by the neck until dead.

    Verisimilitude -- n, the appearance or semblance of truth, likelihood, or probability.

    The concern is not realism in speculative fiction, but rather the sense that a setting or story could be real, fostered by internal consistency and coherence.

    The phoenix issue will stay down for a while, I guess.
