Hey, considering that this page marks the end of this arc, now's probably the time to let you know that this web-comic will be on hiatus.

I had already planned on putting this web-comic on hold for one month once this arc ended. I do not, however, want to make any promises I can't keep. For this reason, the hiatus will be indefinite.

Thank you for staying with me on this journey so far.

I mean, someone getting their character killed so bad they don't want to make another character at all/vaguely in the same region as that GM? That does sound like something worthy of getting hung up on. It's like someone dying in a world where people can't die.
Rastaba 8th Jun 2019, 12:15 PM edit delete reply
Minor corrections. People can die in their world. They simply have the power to make death more of an inconvenience by resurrection and basically reincarnation as they see fit. As such the idea someone just chooses to stay dead...yeah, I agree. Definitely sort of thing to get hung up on and reasonably so.
Halosty45 8th Jun 2019, 12:56 PM edit delete reply
People don't die. Characters die, and they get resurrected or people make new characters.

And the only way to free them all is to go 20 and pass a dongeon.
Kittoradra 18th Jun 2019, 9:06 PM edit delete reply

Technically, epic levels start at 21. 20 is the ceiling of the "normal" level progression
Snowtwo 12th Jun 2019, 8:33 AM edit delete reply

Awww. That's sad. I really hope this doesn't mean comic death as I have really enjoyed this series so far.

Man, wouldn't it be a gut punch if this were the last comic?

DT doesn't seem like the kinda guy to go out on that note, though.
fellow 23rd Jun 2019, 6:26 PM edit delete reply
Well, this comic does tie up a plot thread,(I.E what's the deal with eli and the grave), and a bunch of other stuff got resolved earlier. So there's at least some closure. DT might not have the time and energy to see this comic all the way through, or might be considering other projects.

The other gut punch is that Raxon was last online 52 minutes after he made this post according to Comicfury. RIP the dude.

One day late to say, but I mark this as month 2 of waiting for update. ;-;
YetAnother 8th Sep 2019, 10:54 AM edit delete reply
And another month passed by...
Still in bookmarks, still check almost every day.
Memo13 8th Sep 2019, 8:23 PM edit delete reply
Same, almost everyday..... I miss you.

Who else is still checking this on a regular?

And me

Me too.

I still check in pretty regularly.
Silentgod 12th Oct 2019, 11:47 AM edit delete reply

At least once a month.
Spare Parts 22nd Oct 2019, 12:55 PM edit delete reply

I only check in on tuesdays, thursdays and saturdays.

Hello all those still waiting.
Silentgod 8th Nov 2019, 12:12 PM edit delete reply

Gah, you beat me to it. How dare. Also hello.

We wait in unending vigil.

It's not over until DT says it's over. Threfore, this hiatus shall come to an end eventually.

Always watching, always waiting
Keeping watch until it's changing.
Our presence you may forget
Yours we'll never, you may bet.
Malroth 7th Dec 2019, 5:58 AM edit delete reply
So should we use this opportunity to start up a Pathfinder campaign of our own?
YetAnother 7th Dec 2019, 7:34 AM edit delete reply
Hit the wrong button, meant to reply here, not start a new thread.
Memo13 8th Dec 2019, 11:40 AM edit delete reply
Ive switched over to 5e at this point.

Silentgod 8th Dec 2019, 2:11 PM edit delete reply

I am up for it, but where will be heading if enough are interested?
Malroth 9th Dec 2019, 1:10 AM edit delete reply
Options I know of from worst choice to best.
This thread:
Pros, Easy to find
Cons, Rude, Hard to read, No notifications, no dice enforcement, turns can take days
Comic Fury Forums:
Pros, Moderately easy to find, you're already regiestered.
Cons, No dice enforcement, community based on comics not gaming, publicly viewable game
turns can take days
Giant in the playground forums:
Pros, Dice enforcement, gaming community
Cons, You might not be regiestered, publicly viewable game, turns can take days
I have a Dischord Server with a dice bot.
Pros Private game, turns can resolve quickly
Cons Difficult to do anything involving tactical positioning, I don't have a working mic, My stubborn refusal to "herd cats" aka be the guy who works out the schedule.

Roll 20:
Pros, Tactical map, online character sheets, dice,
Cons, Slightly overwhelming because of all the useful options.
YetAnother 9th Dec 2019, 5:52 AM edit delete reply
I vote roll20. Who has subscription? I canceled mine only because I'm broke, it gives really nifty perks.
Zilfallion 10th Dec 2019, 6:09 AM edit delete reply
My vote is probably Discord for RP, and Roll 20 for combat encounters. Not as big of a fan of Roll20 for chatting and being able to read back, but the tactical map is really useful.

-"My stubborn refusal to "herd cats" aka be the guy who works out the schedule."

That's always the worst part of GMing.
Silentgod 10th Dec 2019, 2:22 PM edit delete reply

I vote Discord, I am already RPing on there.

Invalid or Expired already. Did you make sure to set a long duration or permanent when you made invite?

Is there still time to join the campaign?
Memo13 27th Dec 2019, 9:37 AM edit delete reply
Is there still time to join the Discord and creepily watch the game?
Malroth 3rd Mar 2020, 10:56 PM edit delete reply
Game is currently full at the moment but anyone is free to show up to the OOC channel and hang out friday nights.
YetAnother 7th Dec 2019, 7:32 AM edit delete reply
I ain't that good at PF rules, but why not?
Or do you mean making a spin-off of this comic?
Silentgod 8th Dec 2019, 2:13 PM edit delete reply

Another month goes by and I am still here. Waiting. Along with many others.
Memo13 8th Jan 2020, 9:02 AM edit delete reply
Even with Malroth's game going and DragonTrainer being in it, I still feel required to post monthly. How is everyone's new year going?
Silentgod 10th Jan 2020, 3:35 AM edit delete reply

Pretty decent, had to work late the past two weeks. So my sleep schedule is shot to hell as a result. Even had to work until 3 in the morning on New Years.
Desolist 27th Jan 2020, 12:36 AM edit delete reply

Oof hang in there dude. I know the feeling
Spare Parts 4th Feb 2020, 5:55 PM edit delete reply

And our watch continues...
Silentgod 8th Feb 2020, 11:26 AM edit delete reply

Another month passes by and as the last guy said, our watch continues.
Memo13 9th Feb 2020, 12:02 PM edit delete reply
I was slow on my watch this month

And so we wait, ever faithful.

Don't mind me, just doing my monthly check-in.
Malroth 7th Apr 2020, 4:14 PM edit delete reply
I'm still alive and still checking this thread twice weekly how about you guys.
YetAnother 8th Apr 2020, 10:50 AM edit delete reply
Playing PF with comic author, but you probably already know that, being our GM and stuff.
fellow 8th Apr 2020, 11:59 AM edit delete reply
This webpage is in my history tab. So long what I see here doesn't actively bother me I'll check regularly out of habit.
Spare Parts 9th Apr 2020, 12:45 PM edit delete reply

I still check in here thrice a week. Is the game going well?
Malroth 12th Apr 2020, 4:54 AM edit delete reply
Can't really answer that one objectively being the GM and all. Nobody is being a problem player, haven't had any one call me out on being full of crap. Party seems to get along, Party doesn't have any obvious roles that they're missing.
Halosty45 16th Apr 2020, 12:20 PM edit delete reply
Sounds pretty good for bringing together a bunch of pseudo-random people.
AliaDragontooth 5th May 2020, 10:15 AM edit delete reply

"the game"
The Bard here Malroth is great can't complain. Party is super helpful when i ask for advice.
YetAnother 14th May 2020, 5:07 PM edit delete reply
The only downside is possible timing: game takes place very late evenings for rest of the party, and very early morning for me.
Spare Parts 16th May 2020, 5:55 AM edit delete reply

I feel ya. I am in the process of setting up a one-shot between Europe, Canada and Malaysia...

Happy 1.5 year. \(o.o)/

Just leaving a note to remind myself I did check in before the end of 2020.

Note that this does not represent me demanding the strip start again. I appreciate free entertainment... but I also appreciate that life is life. If DT can't do it, he can't do it. Even if he just got to a point in life where he simply doesn't want to do it, I understand.
