Ah, that is indeed unfortunate. Though I think it would be a stretch to call Wulfgard low-fantasy, considering all the various monsters and magic stuff we have seen in this issue alone. :Then again, it certainly does have elements of low-fantasy, so I guess it depends how you define low-fantasy.

Personally, I love both high and low fantasy if it's done right. The high-fantasy LOTR will (obviously) always be the ultimate fantasy universe, however after studying the War of the Roses rather in-depth, I personally am not upset by the current focus on low-fantasy, and I really like the elements of both that are incorporated into Wulfgard. Oh, and I assume all the Imperial and Roman vibes I'm getting were also conceived long before The Elder Scrolls went for that aesthetic? :P

Yes, we've dropped the 'low fantasy' and 'dark fantasy' monikers that we used to throw around. We're just fantasy now. For the record, we started laying the groundwork for Wulfgard in 2005. :P So yes, TES had already been doing its Empire thing for a while. But I just love ancient Rome - it's probably my favorite historical period. So Wulfgard is sort of a world in the transition period between Rome and the Middle Ages.


I'll try to have a new comic page this weekend! :)
EDIT: Okay maybe not this weekend, but trust me - it'll be worth the wait, I think. :P

^I always like to see Greek and Roman elements in fantasy, instead of just Medieval Europe copy and pasted with Elves & Dwarves. I also agree that the Romans were a pretty amazing people. The Wulfgard setting is certainly an interesting one, especially compared to some the ludicrously cliched and dull settings around at the moment (Kingdoms of Amalur). Speaking of video games, I hear Obsidian are looking for a contract, maybe a Wulfgard RPG? :P
My comic, which I'd appreciate you reading:

Yeah, an eight pack!? An eight pack! I did not even know that was possible and I'm really scared to google it and find the truth; you just don't know what will come up.

These guys do look pretty cool, though, I was getting tired of the snobby royal people and their fake sense of decency. I also like that guy's axe.

Well, I think we’ve been waiting entirely too long for a new comic page, and that’s the truth. Sorry, Scorp, I know art takes time and really you can’t rush it, but this is unacceptable. Leaving me hanging like this? My backside more than likely has a crease in it from the edge of my seat!

 

In all seriousness, I might as well admit to being a really big fan of the Wulfgard comic. I love the style you use, Scorp, and the story is perfectly engaging. I’m constantly checking back for comic updates, and to be honest there just aren’t enough for my tastes.

 

It’s really great to see something original so lovingly crafted and I eagerly look forward to the progress of this comic, as well as the further molding of the Wulfgard theme and universe.

 

On a more recent note. Do you have any more updates to share?

It's true, I've been slacking way the heck off again. I could make any number of excuses, like lack of time, concentrating my Wulfgard efforts on helping Maegan finish the first novel, and the fact that I sold my main art tablet and then Samsung cancelled the release of the device I planned to buy to replace it... but those are still just excuses. In the end, I guess I really need more self-discipline. I still fully intend to continue the comic though. Maybe when I finally get that next burst of inspiration I'll bang out several pages at once and post them in a big burst to make up for the long lack of activity.

 

It's good to hear from someone who's interested. Helps get that old inspiration meter to sputter a little.

God an RPG? That would be very interesting. I'd love to see a NR RPG too though. Maybe a Wulfgard RPG is what's needed to spawn the interest in both series needed to launch all the stuff the Stebbins sibblings are making into big franchises? It would be great publicity.


Me at a library: Where is it? Oh! I didn't notice the book among all those books.

I'd buy it.
They've already got a world created, with landmarks, towns, geography, and a history behind it. They've got enemies, allies, a story and an art direction. All they need is programming and an engine and its practically done. I would definitely support a Wulfgard kick starter with the little money I have. I'll go on record right now and say I'd donate 150$ without even seeing a trailer.

Pff. They've got 200$ waitin' for them when they launch it. Be it book, graphic novel, film, or video game. The money's theirs.

Scorp, I don't even want to hear about these 'inspiration sputters' or... flutters, or... whatevers. I want to hear that you're jamming that gear-shift into high-drive and cruisin', full speed into progressive territory! So go ahead and feel free to get on that!

 

Yup. I know. I'm kind of bossy. I just want you to know I care about Wulfgard, and I'd love to see it go somewhere. :)

I don't know how to help you with inspiration, Saber-Scorpion, but allow me to roll a charisma check as I remind you that people are still interested.

 

I may not be the most  active of your forum members, but I've been a fan of your work since your days of making complicated and slightly-poorly-lit comics with Xerxes Fett.  Your work was a major talking point between me and those who would become my best friends over the years; as well as the inspiring standard by which I judge all other Lego art to this day.  As for your writing and drawing, your skill has increased as the years have passed, while your attention to detail and weaving of narrative have continued to delight and surprise.  G4M3 and Warrior Born's quality speak volumes (pun intended) of your creativity, and Wulfgard looks like it might make them pale in comparison.  From the looks of your characters to the lines they speak, you have achieved a delicate balance between referencing icons we love while showing original ideas that transcend mere fan fiction (not that there's anything wrong with that).  

 

Life and its random encounters will delay us all from time to time, but telling stories like this is something you are very good at, and I hope it continues to be something you love doing.  Let the inspiration strike when it will, and we will do our best to keep from gnawing off all our fingernails in anticipation.  :lego_hehe:

 

To summarize: We are still interested, please don't give up, and You. Are. Awesome.

Wulfgard was the reason I stayed on here after reading SWYBAA and looking over your Lego stuff. And only then did I find the forums. I still check the Wulfgard comic every two weeks, just in case.

I love every bit of the recent chapter, Scorp! Your choices for the look of the Dwarven empire are really lovely. The art is just as vivid as the previous chapters, and I'm getting excited to see where this arc takes us.

 

... I also get the feeling that when Brenna finally turns around, she's going to be sporting a gorgeous beard. :P

Splendid work, as always!  The irony of a dwarf calling himself diplomatic while wearing armor and clutching a warhammer amused me greatly.  As I said on Facebook, I was under the impression that Clan Firebeard were mountain dwarves.  Did they borrow the sand dwarves' word for the beetles?  I remember your notes saying that they were named after one of the southern/egyptian gods, but the mountain dwarves worship the Norse pantheon.  Seemed a bit out of place.

This human is rather partial to them as well.
