Returning to Darksun and comics... I have the colored version. I think of it as Vol 2. It is told from a Pyreen's POV.
I also changed how I did the comic. I normally plot and figure the script on junk paper, draw it, then add the words later. However I have terrible writing skills so I thought I would type up the script on the panels , print it, THEN draw it out and color it. It was hit & miss and more than likely why I stopped.
Another favorite project I did was the Stained Glass of the Dancing Dragon Dancehall. John Play enjoyed going here and had heard of rumors that the dragon depicted in the huge stained glass window was a Glass Golem. In the storyline of the Monsters of Rawk we discover this is true. Too bad for the assassin group- Motley Crue.
This is a picture of Mania attacking a lizardfolk type creature in Darksun. Something I explained in Strikeforce: Morituri is how there are many worlds and alternate versions of it. I also have a Megamania type character in each world and reality. He is known as Mania in Darksun, Mania in Siberys Seven, John Play and also Megamania in Strikeforce. Same basic character but with small twists due to the game world or environment in.
Due to little interest in Role Playing games, I stopped doing games at the Gamer's Grotto. I had however started the artwork for future mini-adventures already. Here I have Le Fiend. An elf that will do anything to succeed. He believes himself to be a great scholar and deserving of a great seat at Morgrave University.
I did briefly introduce him as someone watching the PCs travel into the swamps from a bridge.
One thing some of my players enjoy is the raw strangeness and absurdity of creatures and events I use. In this case.... a Sasquatch that aids the druid as they make a road to Yrlag, Shadow Marches. He loved Zigland's cooking and each night snuck out and licked the pans and pots clean. He even got caught up in a drinking contest and won (sure he wishes he didn't).
I have also created a series of maps. The idea was to make them interchangeable. In some cases that didn't work. Here I have the Broken Anvil Tavern from the first published Eberron adventure- Shadow of the Last war.
These are 22 x 22 one inch grid maps. I number and color code them for reference and storage purposes. These are RED A, B, C and D for instance. Red = Sharn
Where id it start for Storyhours...? The Creation Schema. I took a small company intro story and built it into a massive and epic level story. The Creation Schema was wanted by most every group known and unknown. House Cannith, Aurum, Lord of Blades, Vol and her Emerald Claw and Zulu-13 with a being looking to become a new god of chaos (whom is still active). Out of wood I created the real sized Creation Schema with each of its parts. I meant to paint it, touch it up with symbols and runes and so on and so on but never did it. Still, good to run the game and see this behind the players on a table looking to be finished.
