    Default Yet Another Fantasy Gamer Comic, by Rich Morris

    Anyone else following this?

    Yet Another Fantasy Gamer Comic

    It's sometimes "Not Safe For Work" but quite funny. Some of the strips are actually quite similar to OOTS's humor.

    Yes. I think there may have already been a thread about it here. The author manages to make the sketchy, unfinished look work. I liked that the "Rules of Love" he recently quoted are genuine.

    This strip has its moments, but it's often preety bland. And Arachne is annoying example of "evil is kewl" trend.

    The good outweighs the bad in this strip I'd say. For anyone who likes OOTS and doesn't mind the adult themes, I think it's definitely worth a read (I went through the entire series after I found and read a couple of strips). Not as exceptional as OOTS, but rather good nonetheless.

    Not to mention there is a new one almost every day.
    Scetchy or not, its still good. And if you crank out a comic every day, I dont mind having them not inked.

    I think it's a very good comic. It's funny, it's quite good at longer story arcs, and it has good variety so that no character steals the spotlight for long (indeed, it doesn't seem to have a "main" character any more). It has some highly original characters, like Bob the Beholder's family, and it does the "evil, from their eyes" bit better than the Goblins comic does. And, a good point for a webcomic (imho) is that it has an excellent track record of getting a new post every day.

    I give it eight Sticks out of ten. OOTS would get the full ten by definition, 8-bit is a seven at the moment (although this varies with time), CAD gets zero, and DD is somewhere in the negatives. While it's probably not safe for work because of the occasional boobies, I wouldn't call it "adult content" really.

    I certainly like this comic, and it's really fun to read. Some of the jokes and panels can be a bit exasperating, but overall enjoyable.

    I think I know what you mean with the "evil is kewl" thing, which I find equally annoying (although I like many fictional villains.) But how does this apply to Arachne? She got pretty royally pwned, losing the King of Drostardy AND Clover, who are now happily married to each other. And Arachne was dumped by Princess Dewcup! She has had a lot of humiliations and setbacks.

    I am a big fan of YAFGC, I'd say it's second only to OOTS in overall quality and I eagerly look forward to the daily updates.

    Yes, the moment when it turned out that king of Drostardy doesn't give a damn about Arachne was preety humilating to her, but that's just once- and through the rest of the comic we see Arachne constantly owning someone or otherwise. Well, maybe I'm exagerrating here, but I got that impression. Still, the rest of the comic is preety good.

    Wonderful comic. Jokes are good most of the time and the artwork is okay, even without colours.

    Just discovered this comic via this thread, I think it's really good so far. Not as good as OotS, but definitely one of the better web comics out there.

    For a comic that has so many good moments, and a nearly daily posting rate, not too many people seem to talk about it.

    Yoo Hoo! Over here! Hey! There's a funny strip over here!

    There. That should get some attention.

    Well, let's start a conversation: What do you think of Louie's plan? The Rings themselves seem quite powerful, but heavyhanded when directly commanding their hosts. And neither Louie nor the four-armed snake goddess look like they actually have a plan beyond: "Get 'Im!"

    And of course, Louie's Ring is the One Ring, and he is currently wearing it. Who will be this story's Gollum?

    However, exactly this is the problem. I don't see them do anything but getting control of the caves. And not even that. Plus, it's pretty obvious any rebels against it win by default by the power of plot.

    I was wondering why the Illithid was so complacent about Lewie's takeover plans, I would have expected some criticism (well, the "can we have their brains" joke would not have worked then, of course). Why didn't Lewie make a Ring for the Illithid anyway? They don't work on Mindflayers?

    My choice for the Gollum would be Arachne, simply because it would be the most amusing. No idea how she would find herself in that position though.

    Very nice comic! Thanks for introducing me to it. Reminds me of Fredrik K.T. Andersson's work, AND links to his comics. I like the author's style. I'm thinking of going though the archives a few times just to see how he draws various stuff - because the strips aren't inked or coloured, it's excellent learning material.

    I rather like the couples he's created.

    Um, I'm confused... Helldeathdoomfire Volcano is in Start of Darkness. And the only hobbit adventurer in this strip is Clover.

    No one seems like a good pick for Gollum, although Arachne seems to a bit... fragile... at the moment.

    I hate reading more into a post than was intended, but I'm not sure if you were making a joke or not.

    I don't mind "once in a while". When "once in a while" turns into situation 75% of the time evil proves to be more cool, badass and overall better than good, it's annoying.

    Sorry, I meant to say that more in a "In nearly all our media, the good guy wins" sense. Which I guess is untrue to an extent. Pretty stupid comment, now that I think about it

    And the world itself is plagued by good and evil pretty equally, its just that evil catches our attentions, and more importantly, our news. When was the last time you heard about a kindly couple on the news? When was the last time you heard about kidnappings, murders, and arsons? Now, when was the last time you saw a kindly couple, and when was the last time you saw a murder?

    I'm actually seeing this strip kind of like Bob's father sees goblins:

    "Goblins are evil, Dad!"

    "No, we're Evil son. Goblins are just sorta bad."

    No one in this strip is really evil. Just naughtly, mischievous, and with poor impulse control. And maybe bit hungry.

    Looks like I might have to take back what I just said. The strip has taken a serious turn to the dark. King Lewistrom is definately Evil, with a capital E, and Kali doesn't seem to care that killing EVERYONE will result in no new dead and/or undead.

    We went to extreme "Good," on the "Clover becomes Queen (technically Baroness, I think)," now we are actually exploring what Evil really means.

    Any thoughts?

    Well, it looks that the author decided to turn from light-hearted gags to something more serious. I'm curious as to how it'll work out.
