Everyone, thing wants something. Even if it's just to be left alone. So many do not even know what it is they want.

Everybody seems to know her name and use it so matter-of-fact...

Hi Caribouchat! The demon heard Telvarin call her by her name - is this a devious demon trying to seem friendly?

No way, he's too handsome to be anything else than a hero himself, and till now the story looks quite a classical one, so he should be a good guy.

I really like the Morrowind look of this comic, and by the way, I'm curious about your using Poser: how much time does it take you to make one page? Do you make up a scenery and position your characters and then take different "shots" of it?

Anyway, I'm looking forward to reading further...

Hmmm - makes mental note to include some demonically handsome/beautiful villains and some ugly heroes ;-)

I've actually never played Morrowind, but admiring some screenshots I agree with the comparison. Generally, when I'm working in Poser, I treat it like a film or TV set - construct a scene, bring in the characters, and render from different angles, moving the characters as appropriate and using different poses and expressions. When I have two figures talking in a single set, I can produce a number of pages quite quickly. However, if I want to do a scene with a number of figures, it's often necessary to leave it to render overnight or all day while I'm at work. Designing a new significant character or building a new set can take a while, as well. My average is three pages a week - just as well, really, that I'm well ahead with the plot! The page I'm working on at the moment won't appear until next year.

Lol. That would be another classical story (after all, there only are a handful of stories in all the world, all the pleasure is in *how* they are told!)

Thanks for your long answer. Very interesting. I don't play either, but I like the look of Morrowind universe, and I was happy to discover this new kind of comics -which looks more like a 'roman-photo', by the way (don't know the word for that in English). And I'm happy to know you've got a large buffer ;-)

You seem to be a pair, may I also ask how you share the work?

We'd probably translate roman-photo as photo-comic.

As to who is responsible for this, the vast proportion of the work, including the images and the story, are Janet's doing. Her husband Peter offers support, and was responsible for bullying her into posting it in the first place (so now you know who to blame!). He also edits her scripts, adds helpful comments, and handles the technical issues of posting and web interfaces, and gives general encouragement (and is typing this)!

Well, thanks to both of you!
