I loved this comic. I read it at least like 15 times through. And at the end every single time, I am disappointed. Ian left us at the climax of the adventure. Right before the Final Boss. For gamers like us, that's just...wrong. You don't play through the entire FFVII to just quit before Sephiroth! This comic made me laugh, made me cry. The most intimate moments were the sad parts: when Reka was killed, when Cherry raged over Diane's kissing Hero, everything else. It's the only comic that captured my full attention when reading it. It was a whole new world with Hero. Ironic that I finished my first read the day after Ian's last post.
Is anybody a good enough artist to take up Ian's part? My friends have told me that I can draw pretty well (I might upload some sketches of RPG World later), but I'm afraid of doing anything like was Ian did. He was like a god in the webcomic world.
Rock on, RPG World. You'll always be the greatest comic ever.
Also, does anybody want to make a facebook group/fanpage for RPGWorld? That'd be intense.
aaaand there you have my 2 minute sketch of Diane: websurfer09.deviantart.com/art/Diane-RPG-World-Comic-149146575
also, remember this guy? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FEpNbkzachY
*hands you a cookie* i'd agree that an ending would be nice, but without ian's input it could end up waay off the intended origional ending.
Personally, I don't think there even was an intended original ending. The way things seemed to go off the rails towards the end left me to believe it wasn't nearly as well thought-out as it was earlier.
I played through FFVII and quit before Sephiroth. On at least two different occasions.
I SO understand that...
I've finished my loose-end list. If you want me to mail it to you or post it just say so. (Also, Did anyone else not notice the stuff about the Tataschore and Zeinachinian before?) It's quite a list. The only loose end I think would need a bit of imagination is the relation between Reka and Galgarion.
Galgarion killed reka's father. Or DID he? A guy with a black mask ganged up with a group of monsters to kill Reka's father. ''You cannot escape the mask'' said the guy with the mask. According to Detestai, Galgarion visited South City as part of his plan and came back with an evil mask that seemed to take him over, making him MORE evil. Then reka researched about the mask and found Galgarion was wearing it, so she went after him. Then when the party arrives at Galgarion's lair he says he doesn't know her, although he admits he feels as if they had met, although she doesn't remember him. Then in the forest he affirms he didn't kill Reka's father, and kills her for the sake of making hero less powerful. We KNOW Reka is going to revive thanks to the time machine, and according to Machine Guy's explanations, she should appear right where the party is. I need your opinions on this!
Well, I already have written a large message, so I'll leave it at that. Don't forget to mail me for the loose end list!
I was looking at a random ad for a Snuggie, and I have concluded...
Galgorion wears a Snuggie!
OMG, where did he get a black one?

Here Lies RPG World R.I.P.
Well this sucks. I LOVED this comic! Sure, it wasn't the best drawn web comic but that wasn't what was SPECIAL about it. The REAL artistic genius (and i do mean GENIUS) was in his story and how he told it! He made the characters REAL, with REAL emotions! Unfinished or not, this will ALWAYS be my favorite web comic.(and i've read ALOT of web comics)

Maybe RPGWorld deserves a fan-reboot?
I'd honestly love to pick it up this comic. I still love it. Even if it never updates again by Ian's hand it would still be so. Ah well. Cult classic am I right?
I'd probably start it off:
Black panel: 3 years later...
=> Next Panel =>
Shot of what looks to be the RPGWorld Game casing in a bargain bin. Two voices are arguing and we see a female hand touch upon the case with a used sticker on it.
Unknown female voice #1: So are you sure you want to your boyfriend -that- for his birthday?
Unknown female voice #2: Well yeah... I can't really afford anything else and he's been raving about this rare game no one can find anymore
=> Next Panel =>
A very excited scene and yet again we only see hands, some wrapping paper that has been torn almost gleefully away from the case.
The Boyfriend: OH MY GOD! No WAY! Hoe'd you -find- this? I've always wanted to play this!
Girlfriend: Oh I just had a hunch and got lucky. Seemed like the someone traded it in. Guy said he was playing 'nockFork' or something like that now.
=> Next Panel =>
We see Disc 1 now inside the PS1 and the male hand is about to close the lid.
Boyfriend: Oh thank you hunny! I promise you'll enjoy it. Even if it -is- a little old it was a favorite I watched my friend play.
Girlfriend: *laughs* I'm happy if you are sweetie.
=> Next Panel =>
We see the start screen. The arrow is set to New Game.
Boyfriend: I am I promise! Geez I'm just shaking with anticipation here!
