I notice that in the last panel, the book spines are oriented in the French fashion rather than the American one 😉
We have both in our house 😉
Good catch. I’m kinda of embarrassed to say that I actually googled book orientation for that section. I figured that it might have changed over the years, and I wanted the guy who had this place to use an ‘older’ way
Most excellent story and art, Mr. Roden! I discovered this comic a couple of weeks ago and just caught up from the beginning. Awesome work! I love a well developed backstory and world. You have mentioned at least once that it is based off an RPG. Which game system did you run?
Initially it was a modded version of AD&D 2nd Edition…later we ended up using the WoD Storyteller system. I still have character sheets and game notes for the system around the house somewhere.
Cool, I’m an old D&D gamer, cut my teeth on D&D Basic and the original black cover Traveler back in the early 80s, migrated to AD&D, then Iron Crown Rolemaster and Spacemaster ( which would have done well for this world you’ve created, as it included high fantasy spells, monsters and swords with high space opera . Everything from spells and swords to blasters and AIs). Kudos on your great story!
Thanks. My RPG background is pretty similar (substitute MERP for Spacemaster) and add in a hefty dose of Cyberpunk 2020 and Gamma World.
Glad you like the strip BTW
Most definitely! Cyberpunk 2020.. I never had a character live much more than 5 or 6 sessions in that game:)
Holy crap! You mean there are others who’ve played MERP? Most of the gamers I talk to, I have to explain what it is. Then they ask if it’s based on LotRO.
Yes, I was a MERP player. I think I still have my copy of Cirith Ungol and Shelobs Lair around here somewhere. ICE made great modules back in the day. It’s a shame they no longer have the Middle Earth license.
Some interesting names on the spines…Skinner twice…Dr Moreau.
