> Lily: Freak out after noticing a real countdown has started on the cruxtruder!
There is now a wiki page for this adventure. The last bits of this will be added tomorrow morning, and i will update it periodically, though readers are welcome to add to it, and i ask that you keep any edits as concise and relevant as possible. The OP will be updated to reflect this.
The scheduled hiatus is, as i've mentioned several times previously, due to me moving out of the house featured in the adventure into a new one. I will be drawing things in the meantime and updates will resume at the earliest possible moment in time.
->Rob: Find out what the Shrek head's deal is
Out the window, you can see something shining off in the distance getting closer. As it does, the Shrek head thing starts buzzing and flashing more and more.
Lily kindly passes you your telescope from your bedroom windowsill so you can get a better look.
Let's see here...
You're no astronomer, but you're smart enough to realise that the icing on todays tiered cake of fuckassery and weirdness is hurtling towards your house.
This is not a particularly surprising development, but it is an alarming one.
Officially On Hiatus
Your regularly scheduled updates will continue when it is possible to do so.
Please take this time to discuss things about the comic you're interested in, or ask me questions in the meantime, as i will still be able to access the forums, if not upload images.
Since forever. Unless circumstances/laziness dictates otherwise, i will put up SOMETHING every day. Which is playing merry hell with my sleeping patterns may i add, so part of the hiatus is for me to catch up on my sleep. Also so i can plan out [REDACTED] and the characters in [REDACTED]. I've pretty much got the EoA1 flash and the first intermission down pat, but i realised that i'm going to have to plan months ahead instead of weeks and days because my handling of chronology in Act 1 is pretty shitty. Thankfully, i'm thinking of ways around that issue which [REDACTED]
So much stuff i want to say but can't. Still got my computer and internet available until tomorrow, as it turns out, but hiatus will continue regardless.
Now if you'll excuse me i've got to figure out how i'm going to fit my bed in my new room.
Oh. Well, because we live in different timezones, your "today" is not the same as mine.
And because you don't always update at the same time every day, there are some days where it looks like you update twice, and some where you don't at all.
So from my point of view, your updates have never been regularly scheduled.
No you can't see me doing it.
Oh joyous of fucking joys. A flaming mass of space rock. Or a meteor in layman's terms. Alternatively, it could also be labelled as quite simply "Imminent Death".
Your arms drop to your sides. You aren't entirely sure how to proceed. From the vibration in your jeans pocket it is apparent that you're being messaged by Lily.
->Lily: Pester Rob
Oh. Oh dear.
You are frantically praying to whatever forces may be listening that your new friend survives this. But you will be DAMNED if he dies without you trying to prevent it.
( LONELINESS -12, SCIENCE! +10 )
->Rob: Brace For Impact
Your HEAD is POUNDING, your LEFT EYE STINGS like crazy from staring at the strobing Shrek sphere, you're playing a game with a COMPLETE STRANGER who has control over your house and you're about to be hit by a METEOR.
This is the most FUN you've had in YEARS.
->Rob & Lily: Accelerate.
No update tonight because there's just way too much work to be done on this next update, maybe not tomorrow either, i'll see what i can manage.
As a point of interest, are there any broken images on page 7 or is it just me? Because i find my inability to see correctly linked panels disconcerting.
->[S]Rob: Gaze Into The Mirror
Ok, so this is proving to be a pain in the ass to prepare for since i cannot acquire Sburban Countdown without going for illegal stuff. Which in turn i can't do because a) It's fucking illegal and b) Torrent sites are blocked by my ISP. I'd just buy the album except i really am that broke. I think there's like £3.58 on my debit card, and i don't have a credit card because i don't have a job or spend enough to warrant getting a credit card.
I'll have to get creative with this, but something i've been thinking of has been affirmed by this corner i've gotten myself into. I am simply unable to rely so heavily on outside sources for audio, and it'll be a lot easier to just use audio specifically made for the purposes of this adventure. I can't make heads nor tails of the software involved though and i'm not really all that skilled with the writing of music ( Where unlike with drawing where i've got latent undeveloped skills, i just don't have any at all blah blah blah ).
With that in mind i'd like to recruit any interested musicians out there to work with me on this. It will be a volunteer only basis since as i said before i'm broke. Work will be credited where used and you will retain creative ownership of material you create to do whatever the fuck you want with.
What i ask of volunteers is:
-You can make music that is of a high enough standard that both you and myself are comfortable releasing it.
-You are able to get the tracks done in a timely manner ( I won't be too strict with deadlines, but i will get agitated if you vanish for weeks without notice for example )
-That any details about forthcoming updates related to the tracks i ask you to work on are kept confidential. No leaks about plot twists or what have you.
-You are capable of collaboration, since i will be happy to have more than one person working on sweet tunes.
-You are aware that you do not have to chain yourself to me, nor i to you, this is ultimately a partnership. Which means we'll be working together for as long as all parties are content to do so.
All private correspondence that you do not wish to be public on this thread concerning this, please email to email@example.com or send via PM on this forum to my account. I am happy to discuss anything you might want to talk about concerning this.
I'm still going to be drawing the flash in the meantime and trying to figure out how i'm supposed to get a hold of the track, so keep an eye on the Progress Percentage in my signature. There will come a time where i can't be clever about it though, so this is really important.
Edit: Acquired Sburban Countdown track.
Don't worry, I think it was fine the way it was. I liked Rob's hero mode pose at the end.
>Do a little dance.
You are now the Nomadic Adventurer. You have been wandering around for hours and the initial excitement of exploring a new world quickly fell off when you realized there was nothing here. Imagine your surprise ( You don't need to imagine it, you still feel it ) when you found this peculiar structure. The hatch was already open and you have invited yourself in. Hopefully you don't encounter a disgruntled occupant.
What will you do?
