One of the best monetized webcomics in existence is Drowtales. They are experts in squeezing every penny possible out of the web while still keeping the comic fun. One of the things they do is virtual role playing where readers pay to play characters in a Drowtales comic. I was thinking that I would like to give this a shot with a bit of a twist.
Basically I would like to get about 5 player to run through a story where their action in the story would be made into a bi-weekly comic page (at first). The story would be set in the blade bunny universe, which as we know can include anything and everything we damn well want it to include. The details of how this would have to be worked out with players. I am assuming that it would be some sort of email back and forth or perhaps a private group to discuss how the story would progress.
Now the twist on all this is how I would like to pay for it. Instead of asking the players to pay the comic adventure would be posted for free and the readers would be asked to support the adventure. After all quality role-playing is a skill. We want people who can tell a story not just engage in Mary sue fan fiction. In fact the readers will get the option of tipping player when supporting the comic allowing the players to earn a percentage of the money donated.
If your interested drop me an email [email protected] and tell me about the character you would be interested in playing.
This might all blow up in my face but if you can’t have fun and do weird things online what’s the point.
I just a head’s up that I am delaying the next page because I want to talk about it a little bit and have asked Erwin to draw some visual aids for that discussion. The visual aid will not be ready till Monday so I am postponing the page till then.
Another month and another free pinup with an appeal for donations. I must say this has been going rather well all things considered. While we are not breaking even last month my expenses were cut in half over all. That is a big relief on a number of fronts so thank you so much for your support. You are making it possible for me to continue to share this comic with you.
This month we are doing some alternate reality bunny pictures. The first of the two images is from a strange plane of existence where ninja girls in skimpy outfits get cold. What and odd and distopian universe. It was drawn by Dimaz Wahyu .
As always I give you the pinup for free and then ask you to donate to support the comic. As long as I make a net profit off of this we will continue have pinups and wallpapers with out restriction to accompany my begging.
Here is the image:
And here is the begging. Please donate anything you can to help keep this comic running. Just select a tip amount bellow and hit the buy now button. Thank you so much for your support.
So today I talk about update schedules. A new side project I am thinking about working on. Writing beginnings and endings. And the evils of English teachers. I’m sort of all over the place on this one.
