Mid-Season Finale
Wow, it's been three months now.

And it's been even longer since this comic, wherein Snipes goes on a spheal about wanting to make something of himself. Leading the Net into a new era is pretty noteworthy, right?

A lot of people tell me that Snipes is unlikeable as a character, including the guy I based him on. I think that's because I haven't spent much time developing him. We don't know his wants, his desires, his weaknesses.

At any rate, if I had to describe Snipes' flaws in one word, I'd have to say "pride". I'll leave it at that for now.

As for the comic... well, I have a pretty intense internship at the moment. I do not think I can even pretend to devote any amount of time to this anymore. It's usually the art that slows me down, so if someone is willing to draw, send me an application (with portfolio or similar) by message through my Rooster Teeth profile.
I wrote the first four panels of this comic about two months ago, then set the whole thing aside so I could focus on finishing my three final projects. Now that I have time to write my comic again, I seem to have forgotten what I was going to write.

So, instead of wasting another three weeks trying to recall the script, I just decided to cut the exposition short and get back into the plot.
Long Time Coming
As many of you may know, I'm a busy person. I have three different semester-long class projects on my plate, along with a graduate level Probability course and the neverending post-graduation job hunt (also Pokemon).

It is therefore with mixed emotions that I hand off Folks of the Forum to CrazyTrain. I trust that you will all find him as adept at handling this comic and its established history as I do.

Happy April 1st, everyone.
It's two conversations about the same topic. The two characters are unrelated (as far as we know so far), but they conveniently happen to be delivering exposition to everyone involved.

And the vampire isn't possessed. She's "spellbound", i.e. her captors are using magic to keep her from turning into a bat and escaping.
Question
Just to clear something up here, is the professor dude with the grey hair and glasses talking to the guy he has tied up AND those in the prison cell via the vampire girl? Or are they each separately telling the story to their respective groups? I'm confused because they seem to be saying things together-just cutting from between each room when doing so-and because vampire girl looks like she is possessed.
Hmm… when was the last time I posted a comic again?

Hang tight, everyone. Only one more exposition comic to go.
also
as said before it's okay for the wait (no one's as sloth-like as scott ransoomair)
i see said the blind man`
nice exposition as to what happened it now sort of makes sense...well except obvious questions
Something About Molasses
Yay, first update of 2011! I apologize for the sloth-like speed of updates here. It's taking me longer than I thought to get each panel done, and college coursework is ramping up. Perhaps it's best to think of Folks of the Forum as an iterative project that I share my progress on with you guys, rather than a formal webcomic with regular updates.

[/shame]
oh well
sure it took over 2 months but hey that's better than vgcats
Win
>< worth the wait Rec, bought me plenty of lolz and actually made an account to comment :) keep up the great work
Part 1 of 2
Woo! We finally hit Comic #100! To celebrate, I decided to write a quadruple length scene! So much is happening right now, it is nigh impossible to fit it all into a standard sized comic, let alone a double comic. Barely managed to meet Smack Jeeve's file size requirements, too.

Go me... -_-
worry not
don't worry i'm pretty sure we'll be busy with thanksgiving and all
The Stage is Set
Comic #100 is on the horizon. This one will take a while (though I doubt any of you will notice any particular delay). In the meantime, why not satisfy yourself by perusing the archive and seeing if you can guess what's coming?
i see certain hyrule symbole on the box
i know this was like watching dodds get thrown out for a couple weeks...which i think happens more often so you're excused for that
Been Long Enough
Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down...

Would you believe it, I got 95% of this comic done on the way to PAX. Finished the other 5% just now while everyone else I know is getting drunk as a group. I never get invited to any parties. >_<

I'll level with you guys. It's been an uphill battle getting these comics out. More and more "must-play" games have been coming out that I, as a prospective game designer, really ought to play. My creative energy and thoughts are going towards the design of Leet Wars. Free time is becoming more and more scarce as my Electrical Engineering coursework consumes me (and my Game Design minor is no cakewalk, either). And honestly, I fear that viewer support has waned to a trickle. I do know that the one-year point is the hardest part of the process for any prospective webcomicker, but that doesn't mean I don't like it. It *does* mean that I should fake that I like it, though. My fellow PAX-goers tell me that I am a bit of a worrywart. >_>
That's because my comic's art is heavily based on Order of the Stick's art. The differences should be minimal.
also i've been reading giant in the playground games which looks strangely similar to this...and my head hurts realising the small differences
I think that means your good. Just at the wrong times.
