Dire Antiquities

April 10, 2011 - Back to Meatspace

Done building ship!

Bwargh! Well, now we are finally introducing some of the characters. We'll be seeing a lot more of Gavin and Amanda in this chapter, as well as what kind of world they are living in. Hopefully with some dialogue heavy pages, we can expedite the plot a little bit. I've been itching to draw some of the action panels that come up later.

So a buddy o' mine convinced me to try out that new MMORPG "Rift". I'm pretty impressed, so far. I've never felt bored with the gameplay, and there's always something to do. If anything, it's rather challenging (although I am kind of solo playing at the moment). I imagine that the dungeons are a bit easier with 20 man raids.

Lots of chatter on the interweb comparing Rift with WoW. I honestly never got into WoW, so I can't really make an informed comment either way. But, for now I think I've found my new time-sink and maybe some inspiration for the comic. After all, Dire Antiquities is sort of a satire of MMORPG's and DnD.
