I say it depends on two things.

1. How said elements interact with the mechanics
2. How said elements interact wit the story

In the case of Pokemon it's elements are almost exclusively a gameplay thing, with the story part being that every major trainer focuses on one type but the main supporting cast and champions usually have balanced teams. In series where the elements have more story importance (think Last Airbender) there are usually less elements as each has a backstory and philosophy to go along with them.

Level 30 Psychiatry has been running since 2012 but has recently stalled due to burnout and other real world factors. CidYoshi from End Boss's World is currently lending a hand but to keep both comics going we need to bring in a new person so do some lineart.

If you're looking to do lineart on an ongoing comic featuring a wide variety of video game characters on a semi-weekly basis, then we'd welcome you on our team with open arms.

You can choose to work on the gag-a-day Level 30 Psychiatry which has a variety of different game characters show up or the on-going comedy of End Boss's World which focuses on a more regular cast of Robot Masters from Mega Man.

My comic team is down a Line Artist so if you're still offering your services we'd be happy to have you on boards.

There's Level 30 Psychiatry a gag-a-day affair with game characters on the psychiatrist couch and there's End Boss's world, an ongoing comedy about a level boss trying to make his way to the top of the evil pile.

As I see it, everyone loves a good redemption arc but nothing is quite as sour as a bad redemption arc.

Pokemon X & Y has one of the clumsiest redemption arcs I've ever seen involving a character who catch 22's you into setting up an ancient orbital laser for no real reason other than it gives him his kicks. Come the post game he turns around and brainwash an orphan into being a masked shapeshifting criminal for... reasons.

Then at the end out of nowhere and with little-to-no build up, he feels bad for doing so and the story ends on a "doing the right thing by turning himself in" story beat that no one earned. They set up a saturday morning cartoon mad scientist and we don't get the pay off.

Not sure I like the sub count and number of comics being removed from the sub tab. I was using those to keep score of how the comics were doing. The last update is a useful feature though so I'd say leave out the number of comics and re-add the sub numbers.

E-hero Vulven:I'd advertise more online but Project Wonderful is dead and I dislike Social Media. It's fake and feels like those mall stalls where salespeople try to shill their crappy snake oil products in your face. I need a partner to handle those things for me lol.


Well comicad.net fills a similar role to Project Wonderful if you wanna give that a shot. I've had good luck with it so far. Though they've got so many different ad sizes sometimes it's hard to keep up with the number of ads you need to make.

There's no shame in making your own TVTropes page (and other lies I tell myself so I can sleep at night) as it's right there in the site's goals. There's no such thing as notability so go nuts. As long as you cna list three tropes then you're gold.

Make sure you know your monster's weaknesses but the hero and audience doesn't. If the weakness is revealed too soon it'll make thing trivial and if the monster counters it too quickly it can feel like you've activated the "everything proof shield". Like how the monster in Bird Box
.

Much better with the contrast but still not a fan of the featureless void in the background.

Can we go full Geofire and have it be nothing but a repeating 'gator image?

Augh!

No, no, no, no NO!

GAH! I AM SICK AND TIRED OF THE BLAND FLAT COLOR REDESIGNS!
You hit almost all the website design tropes of the last 10 years that I personally despise.

This is horrible! At least put something in the white void around the important stuff and made the headers contrast more.

Edit: Sorry that I'm being harsh, website redesigns are just my personal bugbear. I will give credit for not removing features at random or putting existing features in completely different places for no reason .

Wait at least thirty years, then ask a historian and maybe hindsight can help piece things together.

The one thing that can be learnt right now is the simple lesson of "be prepared for any outcome" as the government wasn't prepared for the vote to go the way it did and that made things worse for everyone concerned, no matter what side of the issue they were on.

Considering Level 30 Psychiatry and End Boss's World take place in a world made up of other video game worlds there's bound to be someone who could stop them easily but of the main cast I'd say White Mage and Black Mage have the most experience, having been part of the team that defeated Chaos previously. Though I'm not sure how effective they'd be without Warrior as their tank.

Though if that villain somehow managed to get Dr. Gardevoir mad, heaven have mercy on their soul.

Sapphire Pokedex entry: "Gardevoir has the psychokinetic power to distort the dimensions and create a small black hole. This Pokémon will try to protect its Trainer even at the risk of its own life."

Ouch, sorry about that. We've all made an online purchase that went sour (Kickstarter mostly to blame in my case) so you'll find you're in good company here.

Hello and welcome to all the new members.

I'm Guybrush20X6 and I'm the writer of Level 30 Psychiatry, a comedy about a talking Gardevoir providing therapy to a fused world of video games, and it's spin-off End Boss's World, about two Robot Masters trying to prove themselves as independent villains.

Looks like we're getting a lot of new competition in the talking Pokemon department ^_^

White Mage thanks to being on a diet and being alergic to tomatoes.


Which one of your characters is most likely to loose their money on lottery tickets?
