Webcomic description

This Rogue Isle refugee was rescued at a young age by hero mercenaries; Even so, Nayreia never cared much for the superhero world but it was a world determined to ensnare her; Trapped in a web of treachery spun before she was born, she continues to find herself under attack from super villains she has never met but all claim to know her. Despite this, she endeavors to shine light on the shadows of her past while claiming the strength to fight and carve out her place to belong.

Original character story based in the City of Heroes universe; Narrative influenced by in-game roleplaying and player community interaction; This comic is a living project of bringing my character's writing to life and chronicling their journey.

Been awhile, huh?

Hope everyone's been doing well! Still fighting the good fights in the Rogue Isles/Paragon City!

A lot has happened since the last comic page, wowza! For those playing on Homecoming: City of Heroes, my content creation, the Dr. Aeon Strike Force went live!
It was a labor of love and I hope those who played it found some enjoyment in it. If you're interested in my own commentary on the process, I posted a Dev Diary about it a few weeks ago here:
Dev Diary - Dr. Aeon Strike Force: Mission Science, Concept to Content!

While I had some time over the holidays to work on this comic page, I still can't commit to a regular release schedule with my other pending projects, but I do want to update the comic as time permits! We'll see how things develop.

Thanks for being readers and see you all in the City!

(Poison flicks her acid blood onto Valtrosi's the right side of Valtrosi's face)
Valtrosi: "GRARGH!"
(Valtrosi flails about and claws at his right eye.)
Valtrosi: "GRRAHAHA!"
(Poison looks at Valtrosi with apathy.)
(Valtrosi's mask burns away revealing grotesque skin and a cybernetic eye. Machinery flickering behind it.)
Valtrosi (laughing): "Excellent. Truly, excellent."

As some of you may know, I recently had the incredible opportunity to join Homecoming’s development team as an artist/writer. As a creative type, there is nothing more exciting than being involved in helping create the future content that will continue to move the City of Heroes game world and narrative forward.

The difficulty in this comes with the commitment of myself, the time available for said commitments, and all efforts undergone being fueled purely with volunteer hours.

My comic work, Fragmentary Veritas, occupied an important place in my life, as the creative outlet to express myself in the context of the game that was so crucial to my development as an artist/writer. With this chance to bring that creative energy to the game's future itself and making new content for its players to enjoy comes with it the difficulty of the limitations of time.

The web comic was something I dedicated a large portion of my free time to doing, and it often exceeded those allowances and I have poured hundreds of hours into it over the past months making it happen.

Unfortunately, this is causing a strain on me between learning the multitude of systems to be able to contribute worthwhile results as a game developer and finding time to draw and create the comic. The development tools are powerful but creating new content takes time, especially so as a novice developer on the team.

For this reason I’ve made the very difficult decision to put the Fragmentary Veritas comic on hiatus for the time being, while I focus my efforts on creating the very best new content I can for the entirety of the Homecoming player base to enjoy in the future.

I won’t be going anywhere this time; I’ll still be around in the Discord and to do role playing events, but the time commitment of creating new comic pages (each one is usually over 10 hours of work a week) is something I believe will be more valuable investing in content development efforts that everyone will get to enjoy.

This is a good chance to thank everyone who’s supported the FV comic so far, both to everyone who was a reader and the Veritas Mercenaries who participated; While I don’t have a timeline on when I might get back to the comic project, it’s something that has been crucial in defining who I am today.

I hope everyone looks forward to playing the future Homecoming: City of Heroes story/mission content I’m putting my all into creating for you!

So busy these days! @.@ Photo finish! So we'll be doing Wednesdays from now on (banner update coming shortly), needing to figure out my productivity schedule as I work on new City of Heroes stuff.

We're almost to April! Hot dang!

See you all in the City!

-TRANSCRIPT:
(Poison punches Valtrosi in the chest.)
Valtrosi: "Your little hand will sooner break then damage my armor!"
Poison: "Well, I guess I'll have to break my hand, then."
(Poison unleashes a flurry of punches; Afterwards her hands drips with green blood. Valtrosi is unphased.)
Valtrosi: "Most amusing! Is this the result you were anticipating?"
(Drops of blood from Poison's hand drip onto the deck and dissolve little holes in the surface.)
(Poison flicks her hand upwards sending blood shooting forth.)

(Poison looks at her broken sword and sheathes it.)
Poison: "I don't need a sword to beat you."
Valtrosi: "Oh? Are you going to hit me with your bare hands?"
(Valtrosi strikes a pose begging to be struck.)
Valtrosi: "Ha! Very well! Give it your best attempt then!"
