Revamped Prologue - updated and complete

Okay, Seth and I have legit reworked this prologue like maybe . . . 3 or 4 times now. I read lots of advice where people said don't have an info dump, you don't need a prologue, focus your beginning, etc. etc., and then we just ignored all of it?? Because teenagers are dumb, I guess. But this . . . will hopefully . . . be the very last time. A few pages have been added, some dialogue adjusted, all of the old man and kids are gone. I'm much happier with it now, I hope Seth is too, and so, I hope, are YOU.

Breakin' Stuff

In an effort to get the Val'Cielle admin page working again, I will be adding and removing a bunch of strips.

Please don't worry, as we will hopefully be returning to our ordinary radio silence shortly.

Server Switcheroo

Just a quick bit 'o news; I've migrated the comic over to the new fancy-dancy server! You shouldn't notice any difference, except maybe the pages load a little teeny tiny bit faster, because this server has more memory.

Mostly it'll just help me retire the old server and get it off of my credit card. YAY!

For anybody interested, I moved us from my old Ubuntu 8.10 VPS with 512MB RAM to our new Debian Squeeze VPS with 675MB, both of which are hosted with Linode. :)

End of Chapter

I forgot to post a page last week, I think, but here it is this week, and it's also the end of the chapter. I haven't gotten very far in the next chapter yet, and I have a convention to go to in a couple weeks, so chances are I won't until I come back from it.

I'll try and make a post when I'm back with a better idea of how the chapter's going and when I might have it up.

Character Reactions

It's been awhile since anyone's posted a news entry, so I guess I'll do so! Character creation is a very personal thing, I feel like; you get to know them and craft them in any way you like, and the best characters have reasons for behaving so, and are plausible. From the slightly external viewpoint that I have with these characters, being that I am something of a secondary creator, for some reason I really like Toben, possibly the best. Maybe I feel like her motivations are the clearest, or that I can relate to her? Ooorrr, maybe I had a role playing character kind of like her in college.

He was crazy like her, always rushing in first. No fear, no second-guessing. Maybe I was playing the person I wanted to be? No second-guessing... Or maybe that was the easiest character to play. Never having to worry about what his reaction would be in-charater, it was always "CHARGE!" Even when I knew it was a terrible idea, he was still running in, head of the pack.

So anyway, even though she's got no magic and no fancy weapon, she's still all about getting shit done. Her group isn't the best at organizing things or planning, but whether they're in or not, she's going to first! Good job, Toben, on being brave and leading by example.
