Shroud of the Avatar has its very own comic now

Art is a very difficult medium to work in, and praise should be offered to those who take up the challenge of presenting story through visual mediums.

Do you want more supplemental material to round out your Shroud of the Avatar experience? Do you occasionally walk into your local comic store and flip tables while demanding a Shroud of the Avatar comic? Because if so, that would be insane. It would also be totally unnecessary, as a Shroud of the Avatar comic now exists, and nowhere in this announcement is there reason to believe it came into being due to the sheer number of flipped tables along the way.

The comic is available in both print and digital editions and tells the story of a farmer and his wife who moved to the country from the big city run into some trouble with the local law enforcement and wind up fleeing toward a fabled magical world. No guesses on what that world turns out to be. If it sounds like the sort of thing you’d be interested in, check out the preview on the official site.

PurpleCopper You should really check out Log Horizon, then; it’s exactly what you’re describing.  Available as manga or anime.

racccoon Oh stop it.  Your PCMASTERRACE bullshit sounds so silly and immature when you’re talking about a virtual world like SotA.  Since when have these kinds of games ever been about graphics?  This bad graphics meme is almost trollish.

When they get the game up to scratch with a new engine then it would not be necessary for them be comical.

For those too young to get Eliot’s “farmer and his wife who move to the country from the city” joke, I present to you a link to the theme song for the 1960s TV show “Green Acres”.

Wait `til the singing starts. All will become clear.

And now you know why your elders are so damn weird. :-)

Not a comic, but hilarious and relevant anyway. :P

PurpleCopper That’s the premise of Order of the Stick, though it’s about D&D and not MMOs.

PurpleCopper actually they have said in Eve that capsuleer ships can have crew but in a smaller scale.

Ooh, I’d like to read a comic where the characters acknowledge that the entire world is governed by gameplay mechanics. 
Eve Online did a pretty good job, what with the lore behind respawning and crewing an entire ship by yourself.

Undoubtedly inspired by Mo.
