What is going on?

I know it looks awesome, but what is happening, you ask? Well this comic is about the Classic Module, The Keep on the Borderlands by Gary Gygax written back in the 70’s.

After Mr. Gygax died in ’08, I reflected on how important Dungeons and Dragons was to my life. I started playing when I was 10 with the Basic D&D red box set. I played a 6 year Advanced D&D campaign starting as a Freshmen in High School. Even when I went for years without playing, I always loved the process of a table top RPG game, and being a Dungeon Master. I decided the best way to honor Gary Gygax and the effect D&D has had on me was to bring together the Original Rules I started with, my favorite campaign setting, Mystara, characters from my High School campaign who are important to my inner mythology, then play through adventure and draw the campaign from the point of view of the characters experiencing them. I thought it would be great fun to even roll out the fights and skill checks. Yes, that is playing Dungeons and Dragons by myself, but it’s fun for me to have to take the time to write character reactions to bad rolls. Additionally, that means no character is safe, and every fight has the potential to be lethal.

I hope that you enjoy the comic. I have the whole story written and I’m just trying to get the comic written and finished so the Internet can read it. It is actually a lot of work to get this much comic done and I’m drawing everything myself and learning as I go. You can follow me on twitter or instagram. I would like to be able to draw this full time and get to all the other stories I would like to tell. If you would like to help me reach that goal, check out my patreon page.

Thank you for reading! I hope you enjoy my comic.
