1116 Dorktastrophe.

I’m just about squared away and back on track with everything. At least compared to how I have been. I’d rather be getting each batch of pages done in a more timely manner, but I’ll settle for close to it.

A friend of mine started doing game commentary videos. His channel is here if you’re into that sort of thing. I bring it up because his second series of videos made me want to play something I thought I was done with: a zombie game. I’ve been sick of zombies for a while now. I was into them YEARS before they were a thing. Back when you’d try to explain Resident Evil to someone and they’d just kind of look at you. That’s not to say I’m some kind of zombie culture elitist. I’m glad people are enjoying the concept now, but I just had a really long head start on getting sick of it all, especially when the series that started my enjoyment of the idea have done a hurricane kick over the shark, burying their combat knife in its nose as it leapt out of the water at them. I gave RE 4 a halfhearted try. I actually finished RE Zero, which has the same amount of zombies with no calories… Never quite got through the Wii version of Dead Rising.

Anyway, long story short, State Of Decay, as played by Jeff, looks incredibly fun. Fun to the point where I’m actually considering getting it. So that speaks well for his playing, I guess. Fun fact, Jeff was almost a main character in this comic back when I first started it. I think there’s a post about it on my tumblr. I’ll have to look in a bit. Found it!

That’s the look of a woman who knows she has a big pay-off coming.

Oooooh! I just thought about this! You know what I hope it is? I hope it’s a date! A really big, fancy kind of date! Hah! It would be all kinds of come-uppance, and Thomas kind of owes her, already.

I know I read that part a month or so ago, but I decided to check your link anyways. The art was so different back then! O_O

@Yawnitz: That almost has merit…until you think about Carol. I don’t know that she’d be too happy with Thomas going on a date with another girl…no matter what he owed or how little he thought of it.

I played the demo of State of Decay and bought it soon after. I highly recommend it. But Resident Evil 4 is one of my favorite games of all time so take that as you will.

Was the Neutral Good to Chaotic Evil a Dark Souls reference?

I’m pretty sure it’s a D&D thing, though it may have merit in more things that I know.

Before anyone jumps down my throat, no, I have no first hand experience that would give me an answer. I’m just pretty sure my boyfriend has mentioned this before, but he’s engaged in several types of rpgs and other things that my gaming limitations don’t leave me inclined to attempting.

It’s a D&D thing There are two planes in that game- the good-evil plane, and Order(Law)-Chaos plane. Chaotic good people would be superheroes, Lawful good people the police (for the most part), Lawful evil would be most corrupt politicians, cops, and other authority figures, and Chaotic evil would be the Joker. Neutral good are people who will help others if it is either a) convenient for them, or b) the wrongdoing really gets to their core.

Now now, we all know that Chaotic Neutral is the best alignment ever. It is just vague enough to allow you to pretty much do whatever you want, because you are “out for yourself”.

You should be careful, though. I’ve seen many a C-N players slip into C-E. It can be difficult to be out for yourself, but not at the expense of others.

Not so much for me. I would define MYSELF as Chaotic Neutral, I mean its in my username here. I know that I wouldn’t go murder-y on folks just to get my own way, and it leeks through to my characters, tho I know that a good player “separates what they know from what their character knows”.

wait a sec. Thomas’s ex gf is a writer, right? she should know it’s ‘whom’ and not ‘who’ should i blah-blah…

I’m going to chalk this one up to being tongue-tied at the idea that Snow White actually wants Dawn’s autograph.

It goes something like this:
“Who- (*To whom! You know what, just say whom) Who should I (dammit!) make … etc.”

Yeah, if she’s a writer of dryly written scientific journals and text books. Writers who know when to break grammar rules tend to have more natural dialog.

I love all the references you put into your comic Crave. Whether they are intentional or just by accident.

Ok so first of all lawful good is anybody that won’t break the laws of thegood for any reason. lawful neutral is the same but they follow the laws of who ever owns the area good or evil. Lawful evil follows evil law. Neutral good follows their good moral compas. Neutral neutral does anything that helps them in any way. Neutral evil follow their evil moral compas. Chaotic good is we’re they do random crap but they are a good person. Chaotic neutral is we’re they are random and they walk that fine line of good and evil. Chaotic evil is random evil.

Lawful: follows the law
Neutral: doesn’t care
Chaotic: is completely random
Good: your actions must be good
Neutral: if it suits you then you do it
Evil: your actions must be evil

Well, that’s not ENTIRELY accurate. Lawful Evil are generally just people who follow the law, but twist it to their own purposes. Like a lawyer defending someone he knows is guilty, or a corrupt king. They don’t follow ‘evil laws,’ they just make the laws suit their own needs.
