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.

1) A totally original beginning
2) Casters are balanced, right?
3) Social Encounters: Redhead beats Blond.
5) Mr Mysterious.

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.)
