D&D 3.5 is a terrible system, literally made by nerds trying to get back at the jocks that physically beat them up in childhood.

D&D in general is a pretty terrible gaming system that doesn't deserve the momentum it has built up over the years that keeps sucking in newbies.

Pathfinder is literally the same game as D&D 3.5 with a few balance tweaks and a handful of tweaks. It doesn't really do anything to resolve the real issues with D&D's use as a system for anything outside the Wargame genre. Don't get me wrong--if you like hack and slash dungeon crawls, D&D is great at giving you those. But if you want something with more focus on characters and/or telling a story together as a group, you're better off looking toward something with more of a narrativist focus, like Fate. I haven't been able to play it yet, but I'm also intrigued by Shock!

Makes you wonder whether they're like this 'cause they're just like that now, or they've been effected by the timewarp in some manner, like Ryan and Amy.

Though that would imply that the reason Sonny wouldn't come out of his room earlier in the storyline was due to impled puberty induced flatuence... which I didn't even know was a thing.

So, since I've been bored at work lately and since it's author always puts reference links to older comics, I've been shotgunning through the archives of El Goonish Shive.

Anybody else read that webcomic? I started on that way goddamn forever ago, it was just about the literal third or fourth webcomic I ever started reading.

It's got some flaws, the cast is huge by this point, I'm not even sure who the main character is supposed to be, it's more like an X-Men sized core ensemble, and some of them have enough backstory and development by this point to have justified them having their own comic, the ever-expanding magic system is really really convoluted (as implied by "ever-expanding,) and it's so chock full of gender-bending/size-changing/animal-hybrid transforming that I'm reasonably sure that at least some of the writing process goes something like:

"Yes, Pickle?"
"I'd shuur like me a little tickle!"
"Well alright, Pickle."

Still, the art's improvement is something to behold, and despite the stuff I mentioned before, I really like the characters, and exposition-marathon aside, I think the setting has a lot of potential. Anybody else think so?
>> No. 218299
I read it, and it is something of an unusual case among the comics I follow. On the one hand, I can't really recommend it to anyone because, yeah, it was not very good. The art was blegh, the writing was poor, and the author's fascination (if not outright fetish) with transformation shone through like a lighthouse. It had all the markings of someone who doesn't know how to make a comic trying to make a comic. So why do I still read it?

Well, partially it's because of all those markings. Isn't that why we like webcomics? Thanks to the internet, anyone with the drive can make their comic available to the public without needing a ton of investment or a major publisher with which to sign? And, although the comic was pretty crummy, it got better. Much, much better. The art is leaps-and-bounds above what it used to be, the main characters are very sympathetic, the story arcs are original and interesting, and the world, although quite complicated, has a logic to it that remains consistent. Really, it has all the markings of being a quality webcomic that is marred by the fact that it only got that way after years of being little more than something some guy on the internet made in his spare time.

I just remembered how much less I can tolerate from webcomic creators than artists in other media.

Meh. Sorry you've had that problem, but... welp, I haven't. Two of my favorites, which I would highly recommend to fantasy fans, are Tales of The Questor and Elf Life. The latter is written by a guy that can be nice and can be a major asshole, and whose political beliefs come up once in a while in a wh... look he canceled Elf Life for a while to devote all his time and energy to political cartoons I disagree with. Suffice to say, while I love his comic, he and I would not get along. Tales of the Questor is a truly underrated gem, with fun characters, an interesting world, quirky humor, and generally clever writing that regularly puts a smile on my face. And the guy who writes it is so lacking in social skills that any day now he's likely to be reclassified as some sort of walking skin disease. Separating the art from the artist is just part of life.

Yeah dude, the comic inspired by Empowered and Strangers in Paradise, that introduced a girl dying from ALS as a main character way back in chapter 1, went and started having serious moments.
>> No. 219289
A handful of comics manage to avoid that, but yeah, I've quit more comics than I can remember because they lost the lighthearted tone they started out with. I'm sure in plenty of cases the writer just gets a bug up their butt about doing something "serious", trying to force it onto the comic they're already working on, rather than creating a separate story where it'd be more appropriate, but mostly I think switching to drama is just an easy out for when a writer suddenly has trouble maintaining consistent comedy. That's not to say good drama is any easier than good comedy, but coasting along on bad drama seems to be more readily eaten-up by people than coasting on bad comedy.
>> No. 219293
Spinnerette was no more intended to be purely lighthearted than Empowered, which was a direct inspiration. He worked out the character origins before the first issue. We didn't get the full stories until later, but he wasted no time hinting at Mecha Maid having ALS and foreshadowing Tiger’s origin (old man was murdered, passed on his powers to Tiger, but his superhero life resulted in his wife leaving him with their kids because she couldn’t handle being afraid for him all the time).

He worked things out well in advance because this wasn’t your typical “write and draw it as you go along” comic. He had to go out and get artists to draw it issue by issue. He needed a lot worked out in advance. If it’s not your cup of tea, hey, whatever floats your boat. But if you think he started writing something light then changed his mind, or let attention go to his head or something, you just weren’t paying enough attention. Comedy mixed with drama was pretty much the plan all along (or more specifically Strangers in Paradise-inspired relationship drama superimposed over a superhero inspired by Empowered only where the other heroes aren’t such dicks all the time).

I've heard "you started cute then got serious damn you" thrown at Empowered, Spinnerete, and Little Victory. Scratching my head at the author-and-logic-contradicting assumption it was ever going to be anything else in every case.
>> No. 219294
Yeah, I always thought similar. I put Classic in capitals because this pattern was a lot more widespread during the phase when everyone and their dog ran a webcomic basically as a hobby and predictably a lot of people just plain couldn't come up with new material or got bored/tired of having to do so constantly. These days (at least from in my experience) it's less common because there's simply less webcomics and more that start with a point in mind.

Of course sometimes the results are awful even if the author did plan ahead of time. There's such thing as bad ideas. Isn't Shortpacked/Willis's other comics like this or just first case? Because man that's the first thing that comes to mind when I think of terrible internet dramedy.

Spinerette can clearly get a bit narmy, but there's little overlap on the venn diagram of legitimate problems with the comic and things people complain about. It definitely strikes me as one of the comics that gets disproportionate hate from /co/ due to a perception that it's "pandering to tumblr" or some shit.

>> No. 219379
I think that their existence might have depended on the train arriving on the rails they sabotaged. They have this purple aura around them because they were stuck in a paradox, where they came from nowhere but their actions still affect the timeline. Now that their conditions for existing are not met AND they don't do anything important, they're disintegrating.

They sacrificed themselves to ruin their teacher's good memory. Truly the most noble of motives for suicide
>> No. 219380
But their attempts have just been thwarted. And it can't be that their existence depended on the train being sabotaged since they wouldn't have existed in the prime timeline to begin with.

My thinking is that they've spent too long in the past without coming back. Grumpaw did warn the girls not to stay in past whatever time he gave them, and I don't think the boys have been paying attention to that--it might also explain that energetic discharge the girls got when they touched them.

>> No. 219398
No, they doomed themselves when they sabotaged the train. The train arriving from that rail on time was something that led to them being born in the first place. Their grandparents might have met there, or something. When they destroyed the train, they got stuck in a paradox because now they have no origin but still leave a mark on the timeline by sabotaging the train. Even though the girls saved the train, the original conditions are not identical, so they still don't have an origin, but now they aren't doing anything meaningful either (since it's now the girls' "fault" the train was diverted). Therefore, they are being devoured.

This is a nicer, softer version where they still exist in present time.

...I think the fitting point to say she ate humble pie was immediately after the flashback ended. That's not what's happening here.

What's happening here is that she's been telling the truth, but getting hit with backdraft over 1: past lies told (and present attempts to avoid confessing this), and 2: the present truth leading her onto a pair of landmines (Duane's struggling religious convictions and the people that he's lost).

You know, there are some comics on slip shine I'd actually like to read, but there's no way I could ever justify dropping money for the whole package.

>> No. 220629
Here is the thing

Josh has made a working business that supports these artists

The chances of them "making it" on their own without him are slim to none, most artists aren't able to hack it. Oh sure they'd be making commissions and other stuff. But long form quality porn comics? Nope.

So yeah Josh may be a bit of a tool but you're just using that as a justification not to give money to artists you like, because on internets that is the path of least resistance.
>> No. 220630

The guy who created Slipshine. Douche extraordinaire.


Sorry, but wanting to support artists I like is counterbalanced by NOT wanting to support douchebags and hacks. Especially since let's be real, Lesnick probably sees a bigger cut than any individual artist.

how is it entitled to not want to give money to an artist you dislike
>> No. 220658
Yeah, I mean we all earn our money so it's up to us what it gets spent on.

Personally I don't get a slipshine subscription because it would only be for two comics by Skulloar and Cheezyweapon (yes I know but his insanity is something to behold) and both are people who often post pieces of their art on their blogs.
>> No. 220667

It's called 'voting with your wallet', and most people do this. Because of how Slipshine is set up, I can't use my wallet to vote for the artists I want without also voting for artists I would much rather vote against.

As a result, where normally there would be two considerations in whether I whip out my credit card - 'do I want to support this artist' and 'is this good value for my money' - there's only one. And if you're like me and only care even slightly about a few of the comics involved, Slipshine is not good value for money.

Where'd he get that round scar on his chest? It's been a while since I read through Unsounded and I can't remember if it happened to him during the story or if it's still unexplained. It's too conspicuous to not be at least tangentially important in some way...

It's not come up in the comic yet, but that's what remains of his wedding brand. In Alderode, when you get married, you get tied together through their weirdass khert, so that you can feel their heartbeat and the general direction they're in from you. The wedding brand goes out if one of the partners dies or leaves the country.

It hadn't been brought up yet, but it probably will in the future.
