I'm currently in the middle of a Halloween-themed arc I started a month ago! Woo! Get on my level!*

*Don't get on my level. It's not a great level.

MAN, I was in one heck of a funk when I made that post. Sorry for my comments - carry on.

The guy who makes Friendship is Dragons here. It's really early in the morning and I can't sleep, so I'm going to shoot down your idea without mercy. Sorry.

I don't think there's any such thing as a "community" tabletop roleplaying campaign, as if it were a service or obligation to the group. It's always between a handful of friends, or at least a gathering of sufficiently like-minded strangers. You know, people who share a mutual understanding that they'll go the extra mile to commit to this kind of thing as a hobby. You're not going to find that group by standing in the middle of a general public crowd and shouting, "HEY, WHO WANTS TO START UP A PATHFINDER CAMPAIGN?!?!?!"

What's so special about a group of webcomickers playing an RPG, anyway? It's just like a group of anyone else playing an RPG - they put their day job behind and just enjoy playing as someone else for a while. Literally nothing different or special would come out of it. So starting a roleplaying forum for purely ComicFury roleplayers seems a bit silly. Better to just find a group and then figure out amongst yourselves the best way to transmit information.

Asking for, of all things, a webcomic to come out of it is just plain greedy. To say nothing of the effort that would have to be put into it, what guarantee is there that the content of the campaign will be worth making a webcomic about? There's a saying that "A D&D campaign would not make a good movie/book, and a movie/book would not make a good D&D campaign," or something along those lines, and it's a saying for a reason. Even for those of us that make comics about D&D and be as true to the subject matter as possible, the fact remains that we're making stories here that, at best, reflect the most important parts of D&D - not actually simulate the experience to 100% accuracy. No matter how compelling the campaign for the players, there will always have to be some retooling of what actually happened to make a cohesive story, and at that point it's not really about the campaign, is it?

TL;DR: Start a Pathfinder game with your friends because Pathfinder is a fun game, and because roleplaying is an incredible social experience. NOT because you want to start a popularity movement. Goodnight.

In the new format, [v:comments] in the comic display page just gets "1", no matter how many comments there are. [l:comments] in the comic archive loop still works just fine.

Nowadays, I also abide by the rule of "If it's my work, I don't create the page nor edit it." It's surprisingly easy to tell when an author is describing their own work, if you know what you're looking for.

I treat gaining a TVTropes page as an accomplishment. If someone with no obligations took the time to make one for the comic, then something has clearly been done right. If an edit is made to cover a certain event in the comic, that must have been significant enough to be noteworthy. It's an opportunity to watch how strangers on the Internet describe, perceive, and analyze the comic.

Also, not really an active enough wiki-er to make a habit of editing public pages. *shrug* Still, it's a nice source of views - about 1 in 24 visitors per day.

YES! I was bumping up against that limit a couple of times (only by a few KB). I should be JUST DANDY from here on out.

Y-Yes... I'm talking about the comic display. That version isn't working for me.

Hmm... Got it to work in the comic archive...
<li class="archivecomic">[l:number]. <a href="[l:comicurl]">[l:comictitle]</a> - [l:comments] Comments</li>


but not on the comic display. Apparently,
<h3>There are [comments] comments:</h3>

isn't the correct way of doing it. I get the feeling it recognizes the variable, but it's replaced by nothing on the page. So the result is:
There are comments.

Can I get a little help here?

I'd like to count the number of comments there are on each comic page and display that number. "There are X Comments" or something like that. At the very least, I want to know: How would I go about doing this? Thanks.

Not zero, but not terribly large, either. My script buffer is 6 (two weeks worth), but I only have about one or two comics complete at any one time.

Decided not to bump this thread for Thursday's update, not sure why. Not that it hurt, though - I seem to have rolled a natural 20 on my advertising attempts.

Anyway, Friendship is Dragons is up to comic number 4!

Ever read Shamus Young's DM of the Rings? Ever read The Comic Irregulars' Darths and Droids?

Well, yeah. This is like that, but with ponies.

Friendship is Dragons

A screencap comic of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Equestria is a custom campaign setting for Dungeons and Dragons, and the mane six are Player Characters. How will a party of six roleplayers fare in a world where the usual hack-'n'-slash high fantasy has been replaced by pastel-colored ponies?
