Munny has his moment in the spotlight today and it looks like he does pretty good (I don’t think he even needed that +3 from the DM). It does bring up that I do actually roll each roll made in the comic. I had a scenario set up or each possible outcome, after all, Munny has botched rolls like this before. Luckily for everyone Munny aced it with a 16 (+3) and everyone wins.
Next week marks the 50th Sidekick Quests comic… but it is also April 1st. I have a huge page planned for the 50th comic as a way to celebrate one full year of Sidekick Quests but I also can’t ignore a good April Fool’s page. So next week will be a gag strip and two weeks from now will be the climax of The Mystery of Moon Stone! Please stay tuned for both!
Also… Big News. I will be publicly play-testing the Sidekick Quests RPG this Saturday at Nerdy Stuffs in Spanaway, WA. You can check out the Facebook event page for it here: https://www.facebook.com/events/145192772314131/ If you are near Spanaway I hope you come. I will have a few quests set up, some free handouts and I might even be taking commissions.
I also will have some other big news regarding Fiendish Fan-Made Fridays next week as well. And when I say big news, I mean BIG NEWS!
This week Squink turns into SQUONK! In the World of Adventur Seelie and Unseelie faeries exist and certain circumstances (like a curse from a mystical Moon Stone) can cause one to turn into the other. Luckily for Benton whether his faerie companion is a Seelie Arkan Sonney or an Unseelie Jimmy Squarefoot they still share a bond strong enough to crush a little Red Cap.
Also my addition to my favorite single month long art blogs ever, March MODOK Madness should post today. You can go look for it at http://marchmodokmadness.blogspot.com/
One full page of combat! Everyone gets to do a little bit today. But in the end… something, um, well SOMETHING, happened to or tiniest, most pinkish troop member! Next week learn what terrible fate befalls poor Squink, Benton’s Arkan Sonny Faerie Pig Companion.
I’d also like to announce that I will be participating in International Tabletop Day on March 30th. I will be running some games of Sidekick Quests the RPG (the Playtest) at the gaming store Nerdy Stuffs at 115 176th St. S., Spanaway WA. If you are in the area I urge you to come by.
This week brings some new info for long time readers. First up we now know Benton’s Middle and Last name. Arthurian is a family name. In the future hopefully I will explore that. Secondly, it is revealed that Benton’s Mentor (Rena the Ranger) is actually Gephanie’s mother. This to we will explore a lot more in the future.
Next week it is a full page of combat with Redcaps. One character will CHANGE FOREVER (or for at least a little bit).
Hey everyone. First off let me apologize for the lack of a comic last week and the lateness of this week’s comic. Two weeks ago I learned that my father would be going under emergency surgery and ever since then my life has been tipped upside down and put on hold. Luckily I have been very fortunate that I’ve been able to pause in order to be with my parents during this difficult procedure. Unfortunately it meant that I had to stop working on almost everything immediately and I am only now beginning to pick up the projects I left dangling last week. It also means that I have had to cancel my appearance and table at Emerald City Comic Con this weekend. I was hoping to announce the release of an open beta of the Sidekick Quests Roleplaying Game there but all of those plans are currently on hold. I hope everyone can bare with me while I slowly get back up to speed. Thanks. See you next week at the normal release time.
