18) What do people wear? What's in fashion this year?

Victoria being a major city, there's lots of different styles. None of which I'm very good at drawing or explaining. Kids wear their school uniforms mostly during weekdays, adults (depending on what job they have) usually go for suits and jackets and those not at work a variety of casual clothing depending on.

image

When it comes to The Paranormal Investigation Unit, where the series protagonist has just recently found work, I really kinda liked that old noire style and 50's maybe (look I don't know when I just know I likes it!) style of clothing. It's pretty uniform there, which the secondary reason for making it fairly uniform is to make the main and supporting cast stand out more. But also because they're "field agents" and have a Little bit more freedom in choosing their gear.

From the offices of The Paranormal Investigation Unit:

Seeing a piece of art that I like is usually what first gets my attention. But it’s not why I subscribe. I’ve read some atrocious stuff with wonderful art that I’ve either unsubbed to or never subbed in the first place. I’m trying to check out things with more of a concept that intrigues me, even if the art doesn’t immediately appeal because I’ve found some incredible stuff that’s either grown on me or where the writing/narrative stuff has more than compensated for the art. And those are the ones I stick with for a longer period of time.

I will say that I rarely ever unsubscribe. Just because I know that even if I’m not keeping up actively with my reading the extra +1 number I provide might help give a bit more attention to a comic. Or that I might wanna come back to it later.

11) What level is technology at?
It's modern day. So you'll have your "tablet" level of Tech. Nothing too surprising.

12) Is there magic in your setting? Do people believe in magic? Is there a prevailing religion or spirituality?
This however, is the thing Victoria is known around the world. since about the mid 1900's, the supernatural has become less of a myth and more of an accepted part of reality (or "the natural world"). And the city of Victoria, for reasons hitherto unknown, is especially flagrant with this. Which is why it's become dubbed "The Home of the Strange" around the world. No other major city really compares.

In the fictional version of the UK, this is of course attempted to immediately regulate. which means you need a license to practice supernatural/paranormal arts (this has landed my protagonist in some situations so far). But also a special Agency calld "The Paranormal Investigation Unit" that investigates, builds knowledge and also tries to contain threats where needed. This is a national agency and while the largest Agency is based in Victoria, it exists around the country (and the world in various forms).

I thought long and hard about how to apply the whole "there's magic in the world" to my setting. And how it would impact everyday life for people who are "kinda" used to having the supernatural be a part of the world. Or at least having accepted it. This is why the Paranormal Investigation Unit, for instance, is not some shadowy organization that works in the dark. They're essentially a public facing authority, not exactly law enforcement, but they work the same way in that they work on all kind of levels. From direct contact with the community to high-risk investigatory and preventative work. But you can essentially walk into their offices.

Other things have formed around a world/city that has so much supernatural around them. Themes of shops, markets and Tourist attractions are all there. Gotta make a dime you know. That stuff is the kind of thing I try to put in the backdrop too.

13) How long ago was the most recent war that affected your setting directly? What effects did this war have on your setting?
World War II happened in this fictional version of the world too. And wouldn't you know it, around the same time that public perception of the supernatural started to become more accepted. ;)

14) What does a typical dwelling look like?
Anywhere from this:
image

To this!
image

15) What foods are common in your setting? What is considered a delicacy?
I love the UK and used to live there. But I would not consider much of the food I had there a delicacy. I did like Fish n' Chips and English Breakfast and you can get those in Victoria just fine. =P

16) How common is recreational drug use? Which drugs do people use the most?
There's a problem with alochol for certain, and depending on whereabouts in Victoria you are. Anything from cannabis to heroin. It's a major city after all. There are also some interesting variations on addictive substances that come from more paranormal sources.

17) How common and severe is crime? How effective is law enforcement (if it exists at all)?
Victoria has crime aplenty, both everyday and more White collar stuff. Law enforcement is also aplenty, but as evidenced in some chapters, a bit corrupt (or maybe infiltrated by more cultish elements would be more fair). Law enforcement has to work alongside The Paranormal Investigation Unit when there's suspected criminal misuse of the supernatural variety though. Or at least, they're meant to. Doesn't always work the way it's intended.

In Champions of Far’aus, something actually goes well for Skye & Flamel.


Not sure what the context here is, but the character's looks immediately puts a smile on my face. And some nice top down perspectives to boot! Nice work!

Timely (maybe?) intervention! In today's update of Voidchild!

So cool seeing how much everyone's characters have developed since their first outing!

My main character, Mary Walker, when she made her first ever appearance in my comic Voidchild:

And one of her most recent appearances that I feel came out real nice:

What's changed over the years? Well, I learned proportions and shapes for one thing. =D

5) What are the local plants and animals like?
Well, when it comes to "normal" flora and fauna, Victoria is home to the essentials. Birds, foxes, mice and rats. Depends on where in the city you're at of course. But there's also the supernatural stuff of course. As for plant life... outside of the city parks, you'd have to trek outside to get more of the english countryside to look at. =)

6) Which industries are dominant (manufacturing, logging, etc.)? Was this different in the past?
Around the outskirts, there are some steelworks and other industries. But Victoria is more a place of business. Some have made a trade off it's reputation as a hotspot for supernatural activity. For instance, one of the main villain runs a trading company called "Galileo Mercantile" which is part front, part real deal. They deal in all kinds of acquisitions, and some of them being more supernatural in nature than their other wares.

7) What currency is used, if any? Is the value of money stable, or is it subject to wild fluctuations (think post-WWI Germany)? How is the economy doing in general?
A few pounds will get you far enough in Victoria.

8) What political system is in place (democracy, oligarchy, monarchy, etc.)? Is the system steady, or at real risk of being overthrown? Is there a prevailing political ideology/philosophy (libertarianism, conservatism, liberalism, etc.)?
Short version, democracy. Long version is complicated and it'll get into that eventually. O_o

9) How equal are the inhabitants of your setting? How easy or hard is it to change one's social standing?
About as hard as it is in real life. There are definetly pockets of class struggles in Victoria and areas of deprivation reserved for lower class. The supernatural element has influenced this in some ways, as some areas that seem more populated by the paranormal become less desirable to the upper class and sometimes a blessing for those less fortunate.

10) What is the total population of your setting? Do people live close together, or are they more spread out?
Victoria is home to just over 1 million people. More if you count the county in which it resides.

I’ve managed to get in ok so far, but I am on EU-hours which are prob less populated. Few hours ago was when I first noticed it being troublesome on connectivity.

Some rubberbanding has been had but I still can’t believe despite some issues that I’m able to play this game again. Thanks a bunch for flagging this here. There might not even have been a Voidchild comic if not for CoH. It’s amazing what kind if role a game can play in life. :)

Steven-Vincent:
Makes you wonder why anyone would have canceled this game....

It's been fun though. My scrapper is now level 5 despite all the map disconnects and so on.


I've been wondering that for years. And my old grav/ff controller is now at lvl 6. I'm gonna have to set a daily gaming limit for myself with this. I realized how starved I've been since it went away and I've got a bloody comic to draw!

4) What is the climate like? Are there frequent extreme weather events or natural disasters? If so, is the populace prepared for them?
The climate of Victoria is generally a bit... cloudy with a chance of rain. They've got some real issues with fog that sweep in from the coast (some natural some of it less so). They're generally spared from "normal" natural disasters but some may be caused as aftereffects of less "natural" disasters.

How vague that all was, I realize. =D

So I haven't been able to read up on all the details on this, but obviously I have that COH-craving. From what I understand, I need to be able to find and download a client with I24 released using the original COH-client? and those aren't available?

I realize there are more steps to this, even if I should find some way to acquire the I24-version and that I can prob find out what those are through the reddits or discord?

What about COV? I can't really remember how those two clients meshed and worked together? Is the red side playable through these means?

Internal Success
I started out only a few years ago and didn't know crap about drawing/art. And now I'm able to free-hand draw a full page on my own. Varying quality maybe, but I feel what is probably a disproportionate amount of pride over this! I'm still on my mission of "Learning how to draw" but so far I consider this a success!

External Success
Any interaction with the comic makes me happy. But Comments of the sort where people speculate, react to emotional scenes or connect stuff that happened way back in the early chapters to current events are def my favourite. The idea that someone got invested in something that I cooked up in my head and translated into art is pretty boggling to me.

Subs
I'm not actually sure about this one. Over on WT, I have over 500 subs, but not readers that are nearly as active as on here. And at what number do I reach the success? 100? 1000? Also, I've found obsessing over subs (whether I'm getting or losing) generally makes me feel poo-poo and tends to suck the fun out of comicking. That is not to say that subs don't make me happy and that I don't want them, more that I'm unsure whether I should use it as a metric for "success".
