Awesome, you could include that in the “official” rule book.02/05/2018 at 05:51 #89781StroezieParticipant
That looks cracking!

I think the example is very good, though may need direction arrows or some-such for some people to figure out which box should be read next.
Pack as many examples as you can into your rules, it’ll be very good thing in the long run!

Yaay, she wins! Did she just take the 1 point of damage?

Yessss, good to see she gave those thieves a bit of what for!
Bloody bandits, always skulking around riffing through people’s stuff.

4 hits?!?! That’s quite a bit, out of the 6 she started with. I’d call that serious!

are the images big enough do you all reckon?
They are for me, but it wouldn’t hurt for them to be a bit bigger IMO – say 20-25% bigger

Ya, looks good on the CA site.

This is great.
Are you getting into making comics as well?
Also I like the new walls, I’m gonna steal the idea.
Tired is enough.

Only comics in the sense of comic style game reports.
The walls are actually very old, and are made from spaghetti and toilet tissue.
😐19/11/2018 at 15:02 #104077
Really well done Mike! Especially the bit with Erland standing over the chief, really like how you did that.
Ok, you need to play more games and make more reports, love it!

Cheers dude, I was trying to find ways of making a single figure in a static pose seem more varied and animated..
I have the next 2 games planned, just need to play them and then comicify them.

Deeply inspiring as always. Looking forward to the next installments!20/11/2018 at 00:18 #104121telzy amberParticipant
Excellent work28/11/2018 at 20:14 #104705
Thanks for the kind words travellers!
Book Keeping Time.
So experience in Burning Sands works around the vanquishing of foes.
“After a game add up the total starting Vitality of the Villains defeated. Once this total is equal to the sum of the heroes own three stats you can exchange these for an experience point.
So Erland who has P3, W2, V6 has a stat total of 11. Characters can buy an ability for 4 experience points.”
So in “Dinner For Wolf” Erland defeats 6 wolves with V2 which gets him 12 points.
In “Ambushed in the Oasis” Eydis defeats a bandit chief of V3, and 4 bandits of V2, making her total 11 points.
In “A Chance Encounter” Erland defeats 3 bandits of V2 and the bandit Chief of V3, so he gets 9 points, Eydis defeats 6 bandits of V2 each and gets 12 points.
So the totals so far are:
Erland 21 points.
Eydis 23 points.
Their stat totals are 11, (P3, W2, V6) so for every 11 points they can get an XP.
So Erland has 1 XP and 10 points in his pool.
Eydis has 2 XP and 1 point in her pool.
Once they accrue 4 XP they can buy an ability, or for 6 XP they can increase Prowess or Wits.
An average game should see you get about 1 XP.27/02/2019 at 10:41 #109998
How times have changed.
Before Erland and Eydis removed the bandit threat.
Just 6 months later.27/02/2019 at 14:46 #110005
Quite the change, it’s almost a bustling metropolis now. And prosperous enough that some can now afford paint and new homes!
I wonder what sort of shenanigans our dynamic duo can get up to now…?

Well done AB, and well done Erland. If it doesn’t get said often enough, this is some very innovative showcasing of products and the genre that goes with them.27/02/2019 at 17:42 #110021
Ya, what he said! Very well done. Loved the flying pottery as well. Some poor fool is going to feel some pain once our hero gets ahold of him!

Must chime in to agree with the previous two posters. Very well done in every way! You’ve really mastered the comic book style, it must be said, and while the jar-tossing sequence is right up there, my favourite photo is when our hero is first seen standing in the gate – “Ayee, he is strong, this one!”28/02/2019 at 11:36 #110059
I am learning with each new comic, so hopefully they will get better.
Foul Sorcery next!28/02/2019 at 16:46 #110080OldBen1Participant
I love Erland’s new look. Great read as well.28/02/2019 at 20:01 #110086greg954Participant
Another cracking instalment, very well done. Tell me…….now that Erland has finished sunning himself in the desert. Where’s Eydis all this time?28/02/2019 at 22:57 #110095Ralph PlowmanParticipant

“Or is Simurgh simply living up to its name afterall?”
What does Simurgh mean?
Simurgh, like all the names have been chosen especially.
There is no coincidence, maybe there should be a prize to the person that can identify all the names and their meanings?
😀01/03/2019 at 13:41 #110153Ralph PlowmanParticipant
Utuseb appears to be a real place in Namibia.
Apart from a restaurant in London, Simurgh appears to be a mythical Iranian bird.
I’m missing something…01/03/2019 at 13:54 #110155
Simurgh appears to be a mythical Iranian bird.
Often associated with the Phoenix, which we all know will rise from the ashes reborn, and ascend to glory!
Praise be to Apis!
Erland, Eydis, Ekwensu, Apis, Ali Durust, The Tribal queen Oya, Crom Ogun, Kibuka, all names with meaning.
Kalan Al Kishtar however is an old RPG character! 😀01/03/2019 at 16:02 #110160Geof DowntonParticipant
A doctor I once worked with used to talk about Ekwensu, usually disparagingly, so I suspect he’s a Nigerian god or spirit of Bad Things. Apis is the Egyptian sacred bull. Other than that I’d have to cheat and use Google!
One who puts on his armour should not boast like one who takes it off.

IIRC isn’t Simurgh an Iranian/Persian mytho similar to the Pheonix, but seen as healing bird? I remember reading something about it being a symbol used in Byzantine times as well.

I’m also wondering where Eydis is. I like these comics, very slick.
