Wolf Hunt

(PERMANENT HIATUS)
Webcomic exclusively devoted to the forum game of [url=http://comicfury.com/forum/viewthread.php?id=2797]Werewolf[/url], and all sequels thereof. When the wolves attack, it's a bleak day...when neighbor turns against neighbor, who's safe? Nobody. Anything goes, Hilarity Ensues, and you never quite know what's going to happen next...

Though a wonderful look into site culture of the time period, the comic is not planned to update anymore.
[url=http://rhr.thecomicseries.com/]Red Hood Rider[/url] is what does.

Just a few things:

Okay, for starters:

You might remember in a previous Blog, "Spirit of the Analyst". Instead of a short story, I'm thinking I can do it as filler some time in the future.

 

Other notes: I've sent out PM's to all the players in Game 2 who I don't have appearances from. So, I should be getting a lot of PM's, soon. :P For reference, there are 18 players in Game 2. 7 of them (Anti, Jacob, Finger, and Ice, plus Tobar, Shaggers, and Ferix) are returning; no problem there. An eighth I have drawn already. (Salty. Cameoed in Game 1.)  I got a response from Skrael (who I have *mostly* drawn) and Geek in-thread, plus a PM from Jimi. That left 7 people I still need to hear from.

 

Also: I have basically laid out three different layers: Players, Avatars, and Characters. Players are who is playing in the game. Out of character moments which do not related to the current game are most likely Players talking. Avatars are the overall characteristics of a player throughout games. For example, I'm constantly a Mad Scientist--that's my Avatar, literally. :P Any time someone comments on a previous game, that's an Avatar. Characters are those for a specific game--after all, every single village is slightly different from the last. So, every game has unique characters, most games however have returning avatars, and those avatars all have a player. Some avatars can change through games. (For example, when Linden switches from a Mod to a Player, I'm planning to switch her Avatar. Same for Ice when he begins to mod; he'll change from Keiichi to his current avatar when Game 7 comes.) Players, however, almost never do.

It basically boils down to this: Players are mostly meant to be who the person really is. I will take some artistic license on that, of course, considering it's impossible for me to know everything about every player. :P Avatars are who they are percieved to be. They're features of that person frequently showing up in a game. For example, Sarge and Custard, Antihero and drinking, and me as a Scientist. Characters are how they act in a specific game.

 

Related to this, I'm thinking of making a new page, which features links to all the Players' Webcomics, or profile if they want that instead. (Profile can be useful if they 1: don't want their comic advertised for some reason, 2: don't have one, or 3: Have multiple and don't want any one specifically linked.)

 

Also: Disclaimer:

I am only human. I am one person, trying to run a webcomic of something which has been a large part of ComicFury for a while, now. I might make mistakes.

Or unpopular decisions, or maybe I portray your character wrong. Perhaps I'm telling the story in a fassion you do not like. Or maybe, my art just sucks. :P I can also get a bad case of writer's block from time to time. (Heck, I'm suffering from a minor case of it right now.) Most or maybe even All of these problems would be fixed if I had co-authors who'd contribute. There's nothing which says the comic has to be written in the style it is right now. Heck, me borrowing Anomy's drawing should be proof enough of that. I mean, look at Wolfie Town, the other comic based off of our Werewolf games. Both meager and Tamdrin run it, and the quality is vastly superior in my opinion to anything I can make.

So, if there's anything you think I could do better, you need only say so and I'll get it done. More than that, if you think there's something which can be CONSTANTLY done better, and don't think I can deliver, ask to become a co-author. There's nothing stopping you; I'd accept any help I can get. ;)

New update!

I now have A new update!

 

Anyway, Skrael reminded me that I need to go around and collect appearances for the, oh, thirteen or so other characters I need to draw. If you read this, send me a PM to save me the trouble of PM'ing you. ;)

Spirit of the Analyst: Poem

Dedicated to my behind-the-scenes work at trying to deduce the wolves. I'm going to make a short story out of it, which this poem is basically the shortened form of.

 

Oh, I nailed the game,

The last time,

So it’d be the same,

Of course, right?

 

Turns out I got some town,

And I really got them down.

So I thought I was good,

Then I became wolf food.

 

Oh, not really a big surprise,

After all, that is what I,

Really had desired,

But I kept going and tried.

 

Now free since I died,

This game was mine.

Of course it’d be,

After what happened, surely!

 

Naturally, it is harder than that,

And I am wishing I had just sat,

Down and let it all run free,

Because I’ve been broken, you see.

 

I'm crying on the inside,

Sick of all the lies,

Can't find the wolves who hide,

Stuck behind my pride,

Oh how I've tried,

Even though I died…


Oh, how bad I am,

Couldn't even find those damned,

Wolves I tell you,

Have beat R_B_New...

 

Then came around day two.

Time to start anew.

I began my signature style,

That is that I began to analyze.

 

Until I got a faithful PM,

A remnant of my living days,

I was not expecting him to say,

“Yes, I’m a wolf, my friend.”

 

Now he’d stolen my fame,

I’d get from breaking the game.

Obviously, things were not the same.

Since outside knowledge would be lame.

 

…Or would it?

Consarnit!

 

Oh, why?

It’s just I…

Want you to DIE,

CUR-SED EDI!!!

(And SUPERPie)

 

I read Skrael as town,

‘Cause wolf with edi again,

Would put her down.

So I knew she was a friend.

 

Then came the next night,

Where we put up no fight.

Now I’m getting annoyed,

After so many rules were void.

 

I'm crying on the inside,

Sick of all the lies,

Can't find the wolves who hide,

Stuck behind my pride,

Oh how I've tried,

Even though I died…


Oh, how bad I am,

Couldn't even find those damned,

Wolves I tell you,

Have beat R_B_New...

 

Come day three,

We now can’t see.

I knew Linden had a role,

Shame we lost an old,

 

Veteran come back,

When I knew seer’d die.

The two happened to coincide,

Throwing town off the track.

 

Soon came Sarge,

I thought town Large.

Not my living comrades;

Thought he was bad.

 

He met his end,

In front of old friends.

Gotta love custard vats,

Humor plenty, that.

 

I myself was thinking,

Jake, Pie, and/or Jimi.

Until I got info and ‘understood’,

Not a wolf, Jake Gristwood.

 

I'm crying on the inside,

Sick of all the lies,

Can't find the wolves who hide,

Stuck behind my pride,

Oh how I've tried,

Even though I died…


Oh, how bad I am,

Couldn't even find those damned,

Wolves I tell you,

Have beat R_B_New...

 

Come day four and I knew,

Antihero would be something.

Though I didn’t know he’d say “Boo”,

I knew he was in for a killing.

 

Worse yet was their choice of lynch,

I knew Hedge was town, call it a hunch.

I was no closer than I was before,

Which is to say, rather poor.

 

Furthering my humiliation:

Begging for help beyond the grave,

Where I won without it last game.

Oh, I could see the degradation.

 

I'm crying on the inside,

Sick of all the lies,

Can't find the wolves who hide,

Stuck behind my pride,

Oh how I've tried,

Even though I died…


Oh, how bad I am,

Couldn't even find those damned,

Wolves I tell you,

Have beat R_B_New...

 

Let’s not even speak,

Of the blasted missed kill,

Answers I did seek,

But all for nil.

 

Yet again we lynched a lead,

Role who I had a town read

On, of course, ‘cause I knew,

With info available from guess who?

 

Needless to say,

I began to break.

Wouldn’t you after all,

When so far you’d fall?

 

I was supposed to be a master,

Analyst who’d find the killers.

Yet here I was, stuck as before,

That does leave me wanting more.

 

I was trying over and over,

Crying due to those destroyers.

No matter what, I could not win.

Yet I said, “but, maybe if I try again…”

 

Fat load of good that did me.

Looks like I would never see,

My precious prize, to keep on,

Going and surprise, again finding the noms.

 

Every day that I tried,

Saying something every night.

No matter what I did,

I would always miss.

 

I'm crying on the inside,

Sick of all the lies,

Can't find the wolves who hide,

Stuck behind my pride,

Oh how I've tried,

Even though I died…


Oh, how bad I am,

Couldn't even find those damned,

Wolves I tell you,

Have beat R_B_New...

 

Now we’re really screwed.

With Jnvn now dead.

He was my favorite dude,

Until he was filled with lead.

 

And another one of my reads,

Brad I knew was on my team.

Found himself a bad case of death.

Now it looked like the town would rest.

 

…Eternally.

Oh, dear.

 

I sent in my super-analysis.

Just one of my many tries.

My grandest taking days to compile,

Again which I found useless.

 

The more and more I seemed to try,

Further and further I damaged my pride.

Never could I find my answer,

This other wolf destroyer.

 

Hint after hint, fact after fact,

Clue after clue, death after death.

I couldn’t win, or strike back.

And soon, it’d bee too late; game set.

 

I'm crying on the inside,

Sick of all the lies,

Can't find the wolves who hide,

Stuck behind my pride,

Oh how I've tried,

Even though I died…


Oh, how bad I am,

Couldn't even find those damned,

Wolves I tell you,

Have beat R_B_New...

 

Finally a bit of a break,

The wolves drove a stake

Through their ally and my suspect,

Gristwood the framer, now dead.

 

They knew by now they would win,

That was how, I knew it’d been,

Too hard of a time for me;

Victorious I would never be.
 

Yet on and on I kept the march,

I had to in order to keep my heart.

Why this madman keep it going,

Well he hoped he could still win.

 

It was all the poor man could do,

Even though at heart he knew.

After everything, he was truly,

Powerless to do anything.

 

Knowing his best weapon would fail,

He tried but could not prevail.

And by the time only two guesses remained,

He finally gave in and took to luck.

By lord, oh how I’ve sucked.

I’ve simply been terrible at this game.

 

I'm crying on the inside,

Sick of all the lies,

Can't find the wolves who hide,

Stuck behind my pride,

Oh how I've tried,

Even though I died…


Oh, how bad I am,

Couldn't even find those damned,

Wolves I tell you,

Have beat R_B_New......

 

Obviously not fully chronologically accurate, but, eh, close enough. ;)

Help!

To be quite honest, I'm, uh, stuck. I can't figure out how to write comic # 5. I've been trying to plan it out for nearly six hours, by now (as you can't draw something you don't have planned out, first), but nothing is sticking really well. This naturally means I won't be able to update until I get some help, though I might throw in a filler comic or two. "Already?!?" Well, if you actually, y'know, COMMENT, and give me ideas, feedback, etc., basically, allow me to get unstuck, then I won't need to. :P

But as it is, the only way I can get unstuck is to draw random stuff and hope it's inspiring. :P

(COMMENT, people, COMMENT!!! >_< I'm not greedy for comments. I wouldn't ask for them unless I seriously DID think I NEEDED them. Okay? *sigh* I'm doomed... :P)

I'm back!

...And currently working on comic #4, once I get something to eat. I was busy with 7, but now that it's near an end, I have more free time available. Anyway, for starters, I decided to advertise my comic.

http://comicfury.com/forum/viewthread.php?id=3651

So, if you have any general comments, I believe it's supposed to be there. Comic-specific comments, obviously, would go on the comic they belong in.

...Speaking of which, to Ice: that comment also reminds me of Kristy's comment not to spoil the results. Rest assured, it will be as storyline-based as the actual games. Meaning, it'll follow the comments in there. Whether that counts or not, you decide. :P

The comic will mainly be humor-based, because of this. And it'll be a little hard to tell the story, but I think I can work it out. Like I said, when I get two or three more comics uploaded, I think you'll have a good idea of how the comic will go. I am struggling with it a LITTLE. Whether to put in Linden's story, whether to stall further with the two pictures on the front page, and how to continue on after Ice's death scene. For now--because it's the only one I've got thought out (well, enough to actually draw)--I'll be working on Ice's death scene. I can always reorder it later. :)
