@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.
@  Ezra : (26 October 2019 - 05:49 AM) I think it's because a lot of newer FE players didn't frequent forums growing up. And those that do probably end up on Serenes.
@  Elwood : (25 October 2019 - 07:30 AM) I would love to revitalize this place I'm just not sure how that would be done. I mean with how main stream FE seems to have become I'm honestly surprised we don't have more members.
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 08:04 PM) tfw u not coming here results in not seeing a PM from last month T_T ok gonna try and check at least every couple weeks now even if there's nothing here, lol...
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 07:54 PM) I come here almost never because I've fallen out of habit and basically just accepted the forums are dead :( it's neat you come here every day tho
@  Elwood : (27 September 2019 - 05:52 AM) I still come here everyday because this is still my homepage in Firefox! XD
@  Ezra : (25 September 2019 - 03:07 PM) I also miss the days the forums I used were more active :(
@  Fire Blazer : (15 September 2019 - 05:39 AM) I do kinda miss the days these forums were active :(
@  Ezra : (29 August 2019 - 04:14 PM) *BOX!!!*
@  kirant : (19 August 2019 - 12:49 PM) Huh. Bothammer time.

Premise
Like in my previous comic thread, I really do not have the desire to hack, but I do want to write and tell a story. Traditional literature really isn't for me, and I am really into comic books. This story has pretty much nothing to do with FE. The only thing FE related is the graphics. I still want to use the characters and settings that I created for Devourer of Worlds. However, I will just be putting them in a new setting. I plan on releasing an issue every month or so (possibly every other month). It's tough to find time to get this done, but I will try. Regardless, I hope you all enjoy.

Background Information
The Knights of Shadow are a stealth unit of the army of the Kingdom of Vesta. They are led by Ace, The Dark Knight. This group consists of warriors of different backgrounds and strengths: Ace's brother, Austin; the royal knight, Bruce; the master assassin, Talia; the sly thief, Quartz; the sharpshooter, Artemis; the fiery mage, Pietro; and the time traveler, Axus. Together, they fight to protect their country as well as the entire continent of Amyria.

So far, so good! I personally love what you did with the rope-sliding panel- that was pretty darn cool. I can't wait to see where the story goes!

lol. Honestly, this was also one of my favorite parts of the comic. Making it was pretty fun too.

I'll keep trying. As opposed to a normal FE game with 40 characters, hopefully the smaller cast will allow me to characterize them more and hopefully give them more significance.


Anyway, progress is decent. I'm probably going to be pumping these out a little slower than intended. Probably every other month at this rate. I've been busy and have barely started writing the script for Issue #2 as well as the general plot progression for the next few issues in the arc. Hopefully the lack of updates won't be a turn-off. I apologize if it is. My free time will vary for the rest of the school year as I prepare the students for the remainder of the year.

By the way, how is the logo? Too plain? Perfect? Any suggestions to improve would be welcome. In addition, would people like to see a cover for each issue? I might try doing that if people want to see it. I don't know though.

The logo's fine, if a bit on the plain side. I can't see it being a problem, though. As for covers, sure! Hopefully they don't slow production TOO much. tongue.gif
