More character previews for the upcoming Chainmail Bikini webcomic:
Meet Chuck, the old-school player.
Meet Casey, the GM.
The comic launches tomorrow. I know this will be a tough jump. Most comics take a few strips to “grab” you so that you’ll come back. They introduce the characters and set up the plot, so that you want to know what happens next. Most DMotR readers arrived a little over halfway through the thing, which means they had ~70 comics to get into it. Now we’re starting over. It will be interesting to see how many readers follow and how the audience changes. I also hope that the jump from comments to forums doesn’t spoil the fun we’ve been having in the comments. I know that forum registration is an annoying hurdle, and that some people won’t bother. (I’m always slow to join forums, because signing up is so tiresome.) There are upsides and downsides to everything in this move.
Still, if we have half the fun with Chainmail Bikini as we did with DMotR it should still be a good gig.
Hope to see you there.
