Oijua Board of Doom

Dr. Inviticus’s is such a party animal! Knowing what he did, he STILL went to Kalisoma Springs. Remember the first entry in the Doctor’s journal, the one Darwin read through on page 28? It spelled doom for the Doctor, heralded by the arrival of the Feasting Worm. What ever occurred while he and his friends were at Kalisoma, it kept him from updating his journal any farther, his ultimate fate a mystery.

Script Frenzy starts April 1st. It’s a writing challenge to complete 100 pages of script in 31 days. I’m Foobar_Zen on the site if anyone wants to add me as a writing buddy. Script Frenzy is the time of year I work on developing the Altsad scripts. It’s as much fun as a person can have without getting a Tetanus shot.

For those of you who read my blog posts, I have a special bonus for you, the world premier of the title for issue 2 of Altsad; “The House on the Fault Line” . The release of this issue will be different than from Issue 1, I plan on having a primary cover as well as several alternative covers, each one should be poster worthy. There may also be other bonuses as time allows. As the script is finalized and Issue 1 gets closer to the end, I’ll post a small blurb about it’s plot, followed by as many teasers as I can.

Until next bloggings,

Churning Butter

This isn’t about butter, I’m sorry. I wish I could say it was about bacon, but that’s not true either. However the taste of this post, may leave you with a healthy after glow.

More about Kalisoma Springs unfolds in this week’s comic. We now see how it came to be built, nestled over the canyon that the Feasting Worm lives in. The worm’s psychic energies fueling all sorts of madcap entities and paranormal happenings. The story isn’t done yet though, there is still a bit about what Dr. Inviticus and his crew found as they explored the house. You’ll have to tune in Monday to find that tidbit out.

Last Friday I posted the first of many The Malarkey Brother’s comics. It was a full spread, where normally I’m hoping to keep them in a 3 panel format. I hope you enjoyed it, I have plans for many more of them. As a beginner artist I’m hoping it gives me the opportunity to explore making comics in black and white.

You may have noticed the lack of verbal posts lately, life’s been very busy. Friends, life tasks, and calamities, are all I can use as excuses for my tardiness, I won’t bore you with further details on those issues, but I do want to share that I’ve been researching attending Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in Savannah, Georgia. They offer a Master’s of Fine Arts with a specialization in Sequential Art. Going to be traveling down there in a few months to check out the University as well as to attend their first comic convention. The tuition is quite expensive, so I may end up waiting and applying for a job with them and then transferring down, that way I can take a class a quarter for free and skip taking more school loans. It’s the same thing I did to get my MS in Computer Science, and it works well, although it takes longer to get through school. I much prefer to lose that time over accumulating debt, especially in some place warm year round. I’ll keep everyone updated as things develop.

Until next week’s postings,

Meet Kevin’s Roommates

*FOR EYES ONLY*

I’m writing this for my own safety. A dedicated record of the beings who will probably in some way bring about my downfall. There are three listed here, in descending order of potentially causing my doom. They are the villains to my super-barbarianism.

– Darwin

Allison Skancel

Aliases: Darwin’s Public Enemy Number 1, Kevin’s Roadie, and sometimes aliases starting with either the letter ‘B’ or ‘S’.

Bio: A wealthy heiress, who enjoys buying people and shoes, she became one of Kevin’s roommates just so she could get into his panties. Hatred of her may be the one thing that could possibly bind Kendra and Darwin together.

Super Powers: Banshee Death Talk, Mass of Cleavage, and The Ability to Afford Assassins.

Ronny “Hotdog” Fiveo

Aliases: Hotdog, Rumble-Belly

Bio: A big-city transplant who won the local hotdog eating championship, he loves puppies, Allison’s boobs, and long conversations about fictional martial art moves. Kind of heart and gullible, he is often taken advantage of by both people and literature, and may be the only man alive to have read all 24 parts of the handbook: “How to Be A Ninja and Fight Crime”.

Super Powers: Lifting Heavy Objects and Destroying Logic

Steve

Aliases: Creepy

Bio: Having suddenly appeared one day without anyone really knowing where he came from, he is the most mysterious of all of Kevin’s roommates. He rarely speaks, and when he does it’s as short as possible. Oddly enough, sounds of a dog barking can often be heard coming from his room late at night.

Super Powers: Vanishing Into Thin Air, Looking As If He Could Kill Someone, and Making All The Peanut Butter Disappear.

Read a Gaming Book in Public Week

When was the last time you’ve read a gaming book in public? Never? Well change that right now. It’s Read a Gaming Book in Public Week. Find your closest geek friend and beg, borrow, or buy a gaming book from them and then go out to your nearest public place and revel in your geekiness. Remember the people staring at you are just envious, they wish they were reading that book too.

My Name is Steve

Steve joined on with the Brother’s Malarkey when they needed them most, as the swarms of horrible Slimblines an even smellier cousin to Crablins, were threatening to overwhelm the party. The Slimblin’s acidic sweat had already eaten through the parties weapons and only Oscar’s fists and Vincent’s magic held them back. Although the Brother’s would never admit it, Steve’s archery skills saved them all that day.

As the brothers got to know him, and got over their own hatred of humans, they found him to be a recluse more at home in silence than with conversations. They only thing that seemed to break Steve’s shell was his love of non-human woman. After Dromar caught Steve in bed with a distant Dwarven cousin, the infamous rogue Elhondra Thunderthighs, the party came close to fracturing but Oscar managed to broker a deal that would see Steve stay on as long as he began the five-year process to marry Elhondra.
