I've always told myself that school comes first, play comes second. As of right now, I'm doing my best to uphold that promise to myself. With dueling digital design projects dukeing it out over a batch of worm-ridden 7404s and programs breathing heavy, angry bits down my back, I'm trying my hardest to keep my head above the metaphorical waters of recursive calls.
With that said, please accept my heartfelt apology when it comes to the comic. I know I am not being fair to you readers or to my co-author, but my selfish means are the only way to keep my sanity (and my grade) intact.
When I get the chance I will go back and redo the comics I missed, so don't worry too much. Everything will be okay.
Also, if you are a fan of Dungeons & Dragons, please check out our forums. Art is working on a pretty sweet module based on Jill's favorite pen-and-pencil RPG, Pitfalls & Penguins. It's looking really wheat right now!
Ok, I did Zach's part of the comic for this week's comic, did my part for next week, and made a new TDiS for you guys. Suffice to say I'm pretty tired for drawing at this point. Whew.
EDIT: TDiS Updated. I am a comic making machine. But don't tell anyone, consequences are dire.
Because ZaB isn't actually part of the story I replaced the comic with this one. That means you get to continue your comments from where you left off. Lucky you.
I haven't seen Zach. If he doesn't show up sometime today I'll finish up the comic Sunday. If I have to do Zach's part on JaB there won't be a TDiS Monday because I'll be spending the time I would of spent making TDiS doing Zach's job.
EDIT: It is officially Sunday. Zach is still gone. I'll knock out the JaB tonight. There probably won't be a TDiS Monday. Hopefully I can continue it next week.
There's a new The Day it Snowed for you back in the usual place. I plan to begin updating TDiS again on Monday. So enjoy that!
I hope you enjoyed our silliness this fine weekend. JaB resumes next week as usual.
So Art and I have a few differences. He thinks some things are funny, while I think old people falling down is funny. That said, we just can't seem to work well together.
Don't get me wrong, Art continues to do quality work, but the heart just wasn't present for the past few comics. We've talked about it, and decided it would be best for us to take some time apart. Art will be revamping The Day It Snowed, and I will be in charge of Jack of All Blades. I have made several changes to the site, as it is now based loosely on me and things that happen as I go on a quest to save the world.
Art has assured me that his site will contine to update, and I assured him that I will keep this site alive for as long as I can. There are no hard feelings between us both, and you can expect many collaborations and swaps in the future.
With that said, I wish to welcome you to a world of Fantasy and Intrigue, where fact meets fiction, truth and reality spoon, and the world melds into one giant band of adventure. This, my friends, is Zach! of All Blades
