Some guidance

Salutations, and all of that other nonsense. Just making a quick post to update on some things, and get some feedback on other things.

Update/question: The way things are going with LG:r’s writing are needless to say very slow. So slow I haven’t even began sketching pages! But I do have other stories pre-written, these are lore-based stories that go over the creation of Freya according to one of the four tribes, or the beings known as the “Yakori.” Either way, this year they’ll both be done, but I was wondering (and here’s where the feedback bit comes in): Should I do one of these pre-written stories, whilst working on LG:r?

Get in contact whichever way you want, via Twitter (@PulsivePanda), or an email to my assistant at Ask_Pulse@hotmail.com, I suggest Twitter because it goes directly to me. But whatever you have, I s’pos. I’d advise not commenting on this post, as I rarely check these comments (as most of ’em are spam). Anywho, a simply “yes” to doing the pre-written story, or “no”, would help me here quite a bit. Hell, if you want to go a step further, you could also add on which of the two stories you’d like to read. That, too would help me a lot.

LG:r will come, but at the moment it’s looking like it’ll be a huge first issue. I’d just like to get my arse in gear, and do something, whilst being productive to Freya.

 

Update: If you’re going to Anime North, I’ll be there on Sunday. I’ll be the guy with the cane, and the trenchcoat. Oh– and massive amounts of tentacles slithering from under said trenchcoat. Say “hi!”, say “bye!” If you do say “bye!” you might obtain one +10 Cane of Smiting [4], to the groin area.

Lame Game goes offline for now

Hi hi, everyone. I think it’d be not only professional (because apparently I’m THAT now), but also fair to people that keep tabs on me to update them on what’s been going down lately.

Lame Game in it’s current state has been scrapped.

As much as it pains me to do this, the way LG was going was just too over the place. I kept saying “when it’s done I’ll just revise it.” But I only have so much time to dwell on one story, LG is only meant to be a small part of a small era in Freya. And as such, I can’t spend ten years after it’s done still revising it. I just can’t. As a storyteller it’d be awesome, but as a world-builder (and so to be builder of other worlds), I simply don’t have the time to do that.

Lame Game will be coming back, but instead of weekly posts, I’ve decided to post ’em in issues as Lame Game: Redux because I’m the master of titles, obviously. LGr will pick up the story I NEED to tell, so that other stories based around it can be introduced. Introduced so that this era, the “Fall of the Dakri”, can finish and so that I can move onto another era/story that happens in Freya. These stories need to happen so that future stories can happen, so that future stories can happen…. I’m treating Freya like Earth’s history, there are things that happened that allowed this to happen, which lead to the creation of this, that started the era of that. Except I’m doing it at different times, with different tribes, that believed in different things.

Anywho, when will LGr’s first issue be done? I’d love to say the end of the month, but I can’t at all make that promise. There are so many things going on, and so many things I need to fund, that I honestly can’t be sure. All I can really say is if not at the end of the month, then near the middle of June.

 

I want to get LG done right, I want to build Freya up the best I possibly can. I want to help other people build up their worlds as well, but that’s another topic completely.

Fyur Ball will not be posted with issue two

From the title of this post, and if you follow me on twitter. You can pretty much get what this is about, Fyur Ball, the comic that was coupled with Lame Game’s first issue. Will be dropped, in issue two.

I thought about it, and I’ve come to the conclusion that Fyur Ball doesn’t fit with a lot of people. Not everyone knows what’s going on, as I tried to fit five pages of FB into the first issue, and had to wrap it up as best I could so people don’t flip a shit when I went on break. The story was rushed. If you also read my other posts, you’ll know I’m not a fan of rushing. That’s why I tried to remake a few pages of LG #1, and that’s why I added page ZERO, to the original issue as a prequel. To cover my flaws with the story.

Back on topic: Fyur Ball will be put on hold, until, and this is just a guess. After LG issue #3, because 2, and 3 are joint, and it’d be a dick-move to take a break between them. So Fyur Ball will return as a COMPLETED story, a mini-story consisting of 25 pages that show the adventure of Phillip unleash the powers that come with being apart of a certain blood.

 

If you seen the post I did earlier, for the LG #2 cover, you’ll have known that I was dropping FB for a while. This just gives some reasons why.

Thanks for reading, and LG #2’s first page will be posted on Tuesday, enjoy!

The Dakri Capital

The Dakri are a sub-race in the world of Freya, they are a cross from tribe Dak, or “The Hunters“. And the Ri, or “Beings of Advancement.”

The origins of these people started when the Ri grew a hunger for becoming gods, so they set up a giant craft to fly across Freya to look for life, and destroy it. They happened upon a tiny island of people with the knowledge on how to kill any being with ease, the Ri shortly found this out. During a very quick war that lasted a few minutes (…Really), a blonde adventurer happened upon the battlefield, brought a mirror from her satchel to the commanders of each race. They were both confused by the technology, the Dak commander thirsting to use it for power, the Ri overlord thirsting to research it. The blonde adventurer made a deal with them; stop their war, and get along as one race. They accepted.

The Ri were utterly disgusted by the filth the savage Dak lived in, the forest they called “Kuurhak“. So they made another deal, if they were to be one race, and treated as equals, they’d have to live on the craft in which the Ri came on. They also agreed.

Although… Not all of the Ri, nor the Dak accepted this insult. Some banded together, and created weapons to destroy the craft. Using the Dak’s knowledge of weapons, and the Ri’s advanced knowledge of technology, they created weapons ahead of their time. Anything from a gun that can shoot mechanical Zhloms that go specifically for the eyes, to hover boards with rocket-propelled blades, they were the cornerstone of weaponry. Until the newly formed Dakri set up the “D.G. Specialists” Program, which not only built the walls around the craft, they built the A.T.P.O.C.U.E. (Anti-Terrorist Pulsating Optimal Cannons. Ultimate Edition) “At Pocue” because “Pocue” was the name they gave the rebels, so this was kinda of a big middle finger to them. And they’d see this middle finger everywhere they went, because if they went near the craft (Which, took up around 70% or so of the island) they’d be blasted like the faulty Zhloms they tried to fire at them!

The Pocue traveled underground, where they waited, and continue to wait now.

The Dakri, now satisfied with this victory, set up a proper government. But never named the craft, citizens called it “Kuurhak”, because it meant “home” in Dak.

The craft stays afloat even now, as the Ri have crystals that never run out of energy (As they say, but the truth is, they have so much energy that it’s not at all noticeable.) These crystals are now lost, as is the Ri homeland, as when they left, they left everything there but a few of their prisoners. The A.T.P.O.C.U.E.‘s that are around the perimeter of the craft are now mostly nonfunctional, as they were never tended to after the Pocue went underground, leaving them utterly defenseless.

The city in modern times, now are corrupted. Crime is dealt with in a way inhuman, in arenas. The Dakri government pits it’s law-breakers against each other in brawls to the death, no matter what the crime was whilst selling tickets under corporations and promoting against it while obviously funding it due to the arena being allowed to use Ri technology, and traditional engravings that signify justice, peace, and goodwill. Which is ironic, to say the least. The arena is held in the middle of the city, next to the central dome, the heart of Kuurhak.

This wraps up the Dakri origins, if you have any other questions send them to Ask_Pulse@hotmail.com and my assistant Veta, will modify this post with a response.

EROSGAIA – Why it never happened

‘Ello chaps, and chappettes!

The reason this post is even here, is because I want to go over something that’s been chewing on my knee for quite some time now: “Why I only did one page of Erosgaia, then pretty much said ‘Eff it’.”

So WHY did I just stop Erosgaia, when it’s introduction wasn’t even completed? Well the answer isn’t exactly all that simple, to be honest. It wasn’t a matter of just not having the time, what with me having to finish up Fyur Ball/Lame Game issue one. Or was it that Samantha Gunner needed to be started. Those certainly factored into why it didn’t happen, but there was something else…

I just felt it was too serious for me.

To support this, let me go over the story, and characters.

Eros Gaia.

Age: ??

Sex: Male

Species: Demi-God

Behold, my half-ass’d attempt at streets.

Originally, a statue on top of a tower owned by a long generation of Gunners. (Yes, THOSE Gunners) Becomes a actual person, when Lisa Gunner, takes her anger out on the statue, after a depressing week of being chased by the Dakri military because of her bloodline. As she watches the statue she used to tell all of her stories to, when she was younger, crumble before her eyes due to her own rage. The rock turns to black goo, morphs into one puddle, and shifts into a human-like figure. Eros Gaia is all he can remember, and thus is named that by her. The adventures they have afterwards involves teaching Eros about modern life, as he slowly regains his memories, which, sometimes can be thousands of years old. This was supposed to be my poor attempt at a humorous love story, as they would grow slowly together.

Lisa Gunner.

Age: 29

Sex: Female

Species: Guhn’har

Look at all them triangles!

Born, and raised as a Gunner. Lisa learned all of the rules of her blood, and obeyed them as such. Often depressed that she couldn’t keep a boyfriend very long, due to the rules of her family. She goes out on a rampage, and is then chased by the Dakri military for a whole week. When she arrives back at the Gunner tower, to lay low. She watches the city, whilst tending to her wounds. Inside she thinks of everything that’s wrong with her bloodline’s rules, the military, the four tribes, everything. She unleashes her anger on the statue beside her. Thus giving birth to Eros Gaia. Lisa tries to kill Eros many times, but because of his species, he cannot be killed unless he wishes it.

This comic idea would have basically no end, as Eros cannot die. And Lisa has so much to teach, this was going to be somewhat of a gag-strip-a-day comic. I did not do it, because:

1 – I am not funny.

2 – It does not fit in, with the Gunner story: Because of this, and the fact that in Freya, there is no such thing as a Gunner tower. Nor is there any sort of Demi-God, this just didn’t fit in. Also, after Samantha’s story, this wouldn’t fit in AT ALL. (Not giving spoilers)

3 – Way too serious: Like, just look at it. A mortal that falls in love with a person that can’t die. Not only is that far too “Twilight-esque” for me to touch with a ten foot pole, but that’s way too depressing for me to write jokes for. That, and I doubt I’d want to continue the story anyways, once I get a few pages in.

4 – Morals weren’t in the right place: I base each story off of a moral, and build around it. Eros is the god of love (Citation needed), Gaia means Earth. Basically, the title means “Love Earth”, this would make it so the story would be based off a giant-ass metaphor. Not exactly anything to learn from, just, something you should know by now. Love Earth.

Either way, Erosgaia will not happen. I don’t think it’ll ever happen, I’d love for someone to pick it up as their own. But I don’t see very much potential in it, it’s just way too serious, and that alone would destroy the concept of it being funny.

WELP, that’s it. Now I can go back to working on Samantha Gunner, and not worry about this devil trying to guide me into doing this horrible, horrible idea. (Also, did you notice Lisa is wearing Samantha’s jacket? Lil’ easteregg for ya)

Queen of Hearts

Hell-OH everybody, how was your December? Words cannot describe the level of awesome mine was, what with me getting all of the pages of Lame Game done, wrote more of the plot for Samantha Gunner, and even remade the cover! Would you like to see said cover? OF COURSE YOU DO! That’s what this whole post is about, the unveiling of that cover, and that cover alone.

Now, this cover will not be replaced at ALL. Nor will it be tinkered with (Aside from the title-text), whatcha see now, is what will be, forever.

Prepare your anus….

….Is it prepared?…

….It better be….

Taa daah

Well there ya have it! The new, and final version of Samantha Gunner’s cover. How do ya like it? Could it have been better? Tweet me some feedback! I love feedback, shows me exactly HOW I fucked up. And WHY I fucked up. ALSO: I sent two of these covers as prints to certain people, given the mail-people are slow as a turd dipped in molasses sliding down a iceberg, I don’t think they got theirs yet. It’s just some of the perks, of being on my good-side.

Merry Christmas!

Pulse is in your twitterz answering your inquiries

Seems last blog post, I forgot to fondle- I mean. Touch, on some matters…

Zeek, and POD‘s twitter profiles will NOT be updated: I found it was very un-canon to have the two have twitter, what with it could not only exploiting future plot points. But it also doesn’t make a lick of sense, having her have tweetdeck, but not a whole mess of technical doo-dads. So unfollow them, or else.

Pulse, has signed up, for twitter: YES, she has! You can find her twitter profile at – https://twitter.com/#!/PulsivePulse She will answer your questions there, if you don’t want a Ask Pulse page after you. Or you can just chat with her! She’s a swell gal, I’m sure you’ll get along beautifully.

You can ALSO look on MY twitter, for Pulse’s twitter background, here if you like it, and want it as a desktop background.

That is all.
