Major Striker is continuing to play around with various Wing Commander comic possibilities. The sample below is a neat example of where he might go with the concept in the future. Click the image to expand the full strip. Striker's kilrah'hra have some fairly muted fur textures, so there's a picture of a more brightly colored Kilrathi to balance. Comments on the art style and ideas about where to go next would be appreciated.
Thought I'd take a stab at a little Wing Commander humor. It was more difficult to do than I thought it would be. I know I'm not that great of a cartoonist but it sure was a lot of fun to make. I have some ideas for some other strips, but I'm still working on those. Should give me the opportunity to practice though!
The Black Lance Headquarters would like to invite everyone to a special role playing session taking place this Saturday. Set shortly after the initial Nephilim invasion, the story involves a covert group within the Confederation dedicated to seeking out and destroying threats to mankind. Old and new players are welcome. The game is conducted in #Black-Lance on irc2.beyondirc.net. Drop by #Wingnut if you need help figuring out how IRC works prior to the event. Saturday's RPG agenda hasn't been completely set yet. It could end up being a mix of structured space combat combined with more casual shipboard character interaction. They meet at 9:30 pm Eastern Time.
We're gearing up for a campaign that has the scope to be absolutely huge, but we need people to play marines, technicians, engineers, turret gunners, communications officers, medical staff, cooks and especially villains.
This game is largely about character to character interactions. Flying and Marine battles can take place over several weeks and make playing that much more fun. The RPG also has a reward system. Your persona get points toward their rank for attending sessions.
For fans who like forum posting, the BLHQ uses a chat board for character diaries and casual exposition in the days prior to a session. This allows players to extend the scope of the story or catch up on a missed meeting.
