    Space Opera - The Drip Chronicles

    Welcome to the DRIP CHRONICLES: A Space Opera Adventure!

    Like all adventures on this forum, this comic is driven by reader suggestions. I can't promise to use every one, and I don't claim to follow any particular system of suggestion selection, but if you have a good idea, I'll try my best to use it.

    Click *here* to view the entire comic without unused comments.

    Click "Show" for incomplete summary


    You are Bob the Drip, intrepid space explorer.

    Coming out of hyperwarp, your spaceship hurtles through the vastness of space, toward a planet that no human has ever bothered to explore.

    What do you do?

    What's this? Fan Art?

    You're not sure what any of these controls do. You're not even sure how you became an intrepid space explorer. But damned if you aren't going to pretend you know what you're doing! You boldly pull the largest lever.

    You're not sure what that did.

    This signature has been hidden because it exceeds 80px in height. To be more specific, it has been hidden inside this spoiler tag.

    You briefly ponder how you are able to manipulate your surroundings without visible limbs.

    However, you suddenly recall that you are an intrepid space explorer, and that all the ladies probably want you. You do a dance of joy and forget whatever it was you were pondering.

    You are so caught up in your graceful dance that you almost fail to notice the proximity alarm going off.

    Ignore alarm, no matter what happens.

    No machine tells you what to do! You resolve to ignore the proximity alarm despite its increasingly urgent tones.

    It appears to be some sort of hatch-thing. If memory serves, you use this to ingress and egress your space vessel.

    You continue to ignore the proximity alarm.

    You are determined to ignore the proximity alarm no matter what.
    This precludes eating or otherwise interacting with any sounds it might possibly be making.

    Ingress your space vessel.

    You are already inside your space vessel and thus cannot ingress it.
    However, looking at this big rectangular door, you might be able to go inside it even more.


    You open the door, revealing the ship's locker. Hanging on the walls within the locker are your SPACE SUIT and ZAP GUN.

    You don your trusty SPACE SUIT and hold your trustier ZAP GUN. This is what being an intrepid space explorer is all about!

    You're about to try wearing your ZAP GUN on your head while wielding your SPACE SUIT as a weapon and simultaneously kicking your space vessel's propellant systems when you are suddenly and violently jostled.


    Oh dear. It would appear that you have crashed.

    You can no longer reach the ingress/egress hatch.

    Still in shock from the crash, you for some reason decide to balance your ZAP GUN on your head while wielding your SPACE SUIT as a deadly weapon.

    That's ridiculous. Snails went extinct eons ago, and you cannot afford SPACE WALNUTS.

    Don't mind if I do.


    You are still inside your SPACE VESSEL, balancing your ZAP GUN on your head and wielding your fearsome SPACE SUIT.

    Wrap SPACE SUIT around WAIST and consider yourself a WHITEBELT.

    You throw your ZAP GUN with gusto!

    The ZAP GUN fires upon impact, hitting the FLUORESCENT LIGHT on the ceiling.

    The light begins dripping NOXIOUS MERCURY.
