What's the current status of Prequal/Kazerad?
Is it dead or what?
If kazerad finished the indiegogo, why hasn't he resumed work? I was under the impression that he felt better after november
I am not dead! I am just behind.
I'm still finishing up the last of the Indiegogo stuff. Today, though, I'm just playing a game. I'm sorry.
I am playing a Neverwinter Nights 1 module with a group of friends. For added bonus fun, we decided that each of us would pick a fictional character, we'd run a randomizer on the set, and then each of us would have to build our character based off someone else's pick - and roleplay it over voicechat. I got Strong Bad.
I feel that this is an idea that only the real Kazerad could/would come up with.
>I feel that this is an idea that only the real Kazerad could/would come up with.
Not necessarily, but presuming that this might be considered proof is certainly an idea that only the real Kaz could come up with.
>Kazerad is too busy being a smug cunt about GG on his tumblr, writing pretension rant after rant while shoving his credentials on everyone's faces.
I don't /think/ a bachelor of the arts constitutes shoving your credentials in people's faces. Like, it's more of an apology and a warning that you will have to bring things down to my level. The number of people who lashed out with "OOOH we got a mister SMART MAN with his COLLEGE WORDS" was disconcerting, though.
>wait wait wait, what happened to Cider?
He's okay for now, though going light on art for a bit to keep from sending him back down. It's not holding me up or anything, though; that's just me.
I'll check it out.
Man you lied, the other thread is just porn.
>Is that the scientist from back to the future? How many people played
Seven, but the time was mostly spent dying. I don't want to be that guy who goes "games are too shallow these days!", but seguing from modern action-RPGs back into NWN is an interesting challenge. Splitting up and skipping through dialogue and stuff mostly led to horrible death.
Katia wasn't my addition to the pool, it was someone else's. We knew she was going to add Katia, and we just accepted it. She was statted out by someone besides me so don't take it as canon; a lot of things just don't translate well from TES to NWN.
I don't think I can post my own submission here: http://foxmage.com/Char_Jelly.png
Re: pic related, it felt weird not making him a wizard but apparently there's been a lot of discussion about his class and abilities. Like, this is something nerds have been arguing about since the 1970s.
Isn't that the game that has, like, Anal Circumference as a stat?
Re: pic related, I was trying to find those cheesy, over-rendered DnD portraits for every character. The closest I could get for Rolf was some fantasy AU picture I found on Deviantart.
But yeah, that's the party. One of the players put it well by saying it was like "some 13 year old's horrible fanfic".
You see, this is how it starts. Now a bunch of nerds are going to have a cordial discussion with well-defended points and there is nothing we can do to stop it.
>the other thread is just porn
>Now a bunch of nerds are going to have a cordial discussion with well-defended points and there is nothing we can do to stop it.
No they aren't Kaz this is /co/. People don't even read the comics they talk about on /co/, let alone have intelligent discussion.
FATAL is a great piece of reference material for making calculations that might crop up during any game.
>Did anyone record this? How far did you get? I have not played NWN in years
We're not that far; we only played for a little while before Gandalf had to go, and then a little further before the person selected as the module's main character had to go too (and it couldn't continue without her).
It was mostly us learning (or re-learning) the nuances of the game, getting used to not splitting up, and discovering how far we could/couldn't take roleplaying. We eventually just sort of fell into doing it as a joke, e.g. Katia's player putting on a falsetto and saying "I have experience with this" when she loses all her items, or Daring's reacting to dungeons with "jesus fuck, you guys, a dungeon! I can't wait to massage myself all over the walls for traps and secrets." Personally, I committed myself to breaking Strong Bad off from the group to loot side-rooms and then selling the items to them.
Okay okay, there were SOME questions. They were mostly just labeling issues though, like with the hero/antihero thing. It was one of those issues like where you could remove everything but the ultimate reductive label and everyone would agree.
>I don't /think/ a bachelor of the arts constitutes shoving your credentials in people's faces
>Like, it's more of an apology and a warning that you will have to bring things down to my level
>Or, you know, he is actually modest?
Alright, maybe I was just being cynica-
>The number of people who lashed out with "OOOH we got a mister SMART MAN with his COLLEGE WORDS" was disconcerting, though
A bachelor degree is a degree from a career from 3 to 6 years. In most cases, it's used to refer to a short-term career, be 3 or 4 years long.
There's no real equivalency from country to country: some have "bachiller", in others all careers share a similar degree classification so they're not really separable, etc.
I dunno if you're even there but well, the more you know...
You can't exactly "invent penicilin" while "having no idea".
Penicilin was an existing organism, it was just its effects that were discovered and made useful, which needs conscious decisions and effort to realize.
>>Katia accidentally invents penicillin by being moldy
And then she accidentally invents a way to turn penicillin back into bread and as a result is immediately suffocated as a Khajit-sized baguette forms around her.
>Two years ago, get into reading the TES books.
>Love the Decimus Scotti books, Barenziah series, the 2920 saga, and other lore books. Also enjoy the Pocket Guide to the Empire, both editions.
>A random thought of a group of characters trudging through the wilderness pops into your head while raking the leaves.
>Start developing what is essentially a TES fan story (fanfic, technically) with characters of your own creation.
>Over two years, gets more serious, albeit slow. Plots are developed, characters get depth and personality, each person has an arc, etc.
>Plan on writing and illustrating this comic myself, post it online while making it clear I want no money or profit.
>Can't into the majority of Michael Kirkbride metaphysical lore. Every time I try to read any post about it, the gears in my brain stop working. It's just so dry to me.
>Don't care much for Morrowind. While immersive, I just find myself getting bored.
>Still haven't completely played Skyrim or Oblivion with all of their expansions, using my free time for art or internet instead.
>Can't into the majority of Michael Kirkbride metaphysical lore
But that's easy. All you need to know about Elder Scrolls lore is that everything you know about Elder Scrolls lore is wrong.
Aswell as being a /co/ meme for cat characters based off a shitey Garfield newspaper alternative, it was slightly more specifically referencing this sugoi motherfucker draw that somebody else did
What would you guys say to a Prequest inspired ms paint adventure about a Halo ODST? pic related
I'm fucking awful at drawing, but I'm just brainstorming
It would definitely be aimed toward Halo fans, and it would take place on the MSPA forum, in the cradle of course
I think prequest is a great comic, but i'm not an elder scrolls fan, or a d&d player
in fact, I prefer sci-fi, and that's why I'm brainstorming this
PLS NO STEAL COPYRIGHT (R) (C) 2552
What do you mean by inspired? User Command driven? Character focused? Humoristic, tragic, aliased art style?
I dont think any of that fits the Halo universe, which is pretty much dragon ball meets starship troopers nowadays.
You mean RU?
Nothing about Katia is black and I'd hardly call her being able to telekinesis blue. When has she ever shown blue tendencies? Where is her desire for knowledge outside of a handful of spells? Her main motivation is rooted in emotion and wanting to improve herself through freeing herself from her past life and mistakes (red), not self improvement through study and expanding her knowledge and skills (blue).
Katia is yellow, obviously
I have never played halo.
nigga, you draw that?
I'm wasting my time on this shit in pic related?
I'll keep trying, it's not finished at all yet, and I'm sorta busy
Word of advice mate, if vectors give you trouble just ditch that and go free handed until you feel like you have a comfortable spot between premade assets and new drawings, dont be afraid of being different.
True, our group ignores or re-invents a large portions of the rules. Whatever gets the laughs gets the job done. The books are just a basic structure and even that can be heavily modified.
You should, its always nice to get new players.
Practice without guidance is useless. Browse /ic/ for some tutorials. Andrew Loomis' books are often mentioned. Also here http://imgur.com/a/8eHzD#oPR3woL
SAI. Gimp is more for Photo editing. Sai is purely drawing. Also wait until you have the tablet. Fast strokes will give you clean lines if you don't have a steady hand.
Ok, thank you
I've uh, never really used sai before, I mean, my friend give me a zip for it, but I've not touched it ;_;
I heard from one of those furries who are totally not me that you can see it at
Do you have any clue what you're doing?
Because if you don't you have no prospect of getting better in the traditional sense as you won't spot, correct and learn from any mistakes.
I can't do it, myself Kaz. I have a BS in Psychology, and reading any anti Gamergate stuff is just too depressing/infuriating that I just ignore it. It lowers my opinion of people in general, and that says a lot from a person who really enjoys the anon culture of 4chan. They spout out numbers and figures and shit in general like it's fact, and accuse anyone of asking "where's the proof" of idiocy and bullying and all sorts of other things. Can you imagine if Psychology was like that? If you just pulled numbers out of your ass and then didn't provide your sources? You'd be completely laughed out of the field, and considered a quack/fringe liar. But when they do it, it's fact. That's why I hate Anita's videos. She pulls her "research" out of her ass, and the few things she actually cites are from known fringe researchers. It's fucking ridiculous. Not to mention her credentials don't qualify her to make such sweeping statements without proof anyway, not that anyone has those sort of qualifications except people like Einstein or Hawking, theoretical physicist types. There's nothing theoretical about numbers though; I need sources from real, peer reviewed studies to consider an argument. I can't take it on faith, and if I did, my degree wouldn't be worth anything.
I minored in counseling as well. There's a creed that I work by that within that field is considered common sense, but tumblr would like to be the opposite.
"You have to prepare your patient for the world, because you can not prepare the world for your patient."
I don't, I just play with friends. This is also like the first time I've played in four years.
>NO WEAPON FINESSE
>Kaz jesus fucking christ what the fuck are you doing?
She can take it at 6! Keeping the design in-character, Exotic was more important and rogues can't take it at level 1. Until 6, she can simply be the only party member who can stand in a room full of archers without dying, which is fitting.
Part of the reason we ran based off fictional characters was to keep us from getting too over-optimized. If we played really well, it'd probably be too easy and our tactics of "constantly split up and lose the other party members" might actually work.
I didn't mean to be dismissive of people who can't afford a college education, and looking back I guess >>68803483 is right that it would come across like that.
The part that confuses me, though, was that in the original context I wasn't using it to say I was more /right/ than anyone else. I brought it up to say it might be harder to lie to me, because that was basically the specific thing I studied. I don't know; I'm at something of a loss to better ways to say that.
Kaz kaz kaz.
Why do you bother with these gamergate people? It's like every post you make you're surprised that you can't get through to them. You've spent more time observing them than most other people do before rightfully dismissing it as sheer and utter mod insanity, so what are you getting out of it? You must realize that nothing is going to change or get better?
Also WORK ON THE COMIC PLEASE HOLY SHIT ;_;
kaz, update when? At least tell us you've been working on the next few updates at once or something. If you're building another game or experience thing then okay, but I remember you telling us like last month that the update was mostly done.
I dig the flat colour thing. Try and make your shit more shiny, lighter colours and all that.
Best of luck in the future, you should go to >>>68738063 for if you are actually sure in wanting to draw comic things
brainstorming, getting help ect
what kind of.. pics, do you want
pic related? lewd?
I think a lot of physics laws are destroyed in this picture.
>I'm just really, really bad at drawing ;_;
>I practice all the time, I just keep telling myself I'll git gud
>Roughly, aprox, whatever, I'be been trying for about 4 years
Your words, not mine. If you've been practicing for four years and still consider yourself to be "really bad" at drawing, you are doing something wrong i.e. you don't know what you're doing.
That can be corrected by reading books or hiring a tutor.
What else there is to say?
though I suppose she has done a hell of a lot for the couple days she's been here
She's gotten mauled in a well, had a dance off with a nord, got mugged by sigrid, burnt down a church, got new clothes, chased down a hooded faggot, struck shady dealings, met a ghost and subsequently learned even more magic.
This is what a bad citizen looks like.
>People passionately rally for reform
>Come across typical opposition, trying to conserve the old ways they profit from
"OH THEY'RE ALL THE SAAAAAAME".
Passivity. Laziness. Unconsciousness. Decrepitude.
Was the biggest mistake Kaz made innovation?
Since the HTML 5 thing updates have gone to shit. It's like that whole EIEO thing with the oil industry. Innovation is so much harder when you don't just work on techniques you already know and improve them.
Consider that one of the things that have kept you interested in Prequel was EVIDENCE of Kazerad's activity, even if it wasn't activity on prequel.
Even that has gone to hell, apart from a few posts on /co/.
The argument isn't insane or broken. After all, ethical policies withing journalism are hardly new, and opposition to regulatory measures isn't either.
Just admit you're a non-committal douche and move on.
Soon we will be analyzing and deconstructing her long winded thoughts on a ten second span basis.
Could katia's internal avalanche of screaming motivational voices, self doubt and garbage divagation make her chim? She's gone through entire years of meditation in mere hours.
I write about manipulation and misinformation a lot, whether it's on my personal blog or in fiction. When examining evidence in something constitutes "taking a side", I feel like I am kind of obligated to argue for that side for a bit. I'll get over it soon; this same thing happened back during post-911 islamaphobia, only then I was arguing with extremely conservative Christians.
Like, I'm really not the type of person to take sides in things, but evidence-vs-faith things always get to me. I know one can't "win" them in the sense of swaying your opponent, but if you are in the less exclusionary group and can get your opponent to isolate start dismissing everyone who disagrees with them as an enemy, then you at least solve the problem in the long run.
It's pretty much to that point, after which there will just be waiting.
you probably havent done shit in these two years to understand just how significant they have been for many of us, even in terms of being in 4chan, everything has changed forever.
'I think we can all agree, the future has begun.'
I'M HERE IN KVATCH, GOSH I NEED A DRINK.
GOD DAMN, I FUCKED AN ORC I'M SUCH A WORTHLESS SLUT. IS THAT A UNICORN?
I CAN'T BE A WIZARD, BUT THE TALKING LIZARD WOMAN IS RIGHT, I NEED TO FOLLOW MY DREAMS - I'M GOING TO BE A WIZARD.
I FUCKED UP A SIMPLE JOB AGAIN AND NOW I'M A +1 AT A DINNER PARTY! EVERYONE IS NAKED AND WAITERS ARE RACIST.
NOW I EMBARK ON MY ADVENTURE WITH THE DRUG ABUSING LAW ENFORCER!
ALL THAT OBVIOUS FORESHADOWING THAT THE MAGE'S GUILD HERE IS SHADY AS FUCK HAVE PASSED RIGHT OVER MY STUPID YELLOW EARS AND NOW I'M NAKED AGAIN! TIME TO BURN DOWN A FUCKING CHURCH.
NOW I GOT FREE GEAR FROM AN UNDIGNIFIED ORC AND I'M GOING TO BEAT UP A CLERIC, AS IF BURNING UP A CHURCH WAS NOT ENOUGH.
NOW THE GHOST OF DARK-ELF KAMINA MADE IT SNOW AND I CAN MOVE SHIT WITH MUH MIND! BITCHIN'!
>END OF EPISODE 1
>NEXT TIME ON PREQUEL BALL Z: KAI
we're heading towards some kind of singularity where as the updates become less and less frequent, the threads occur more and more often.
soon /co/ will just be prequel threads, and then all of 4chan.
and then to get the update, Kaz will make us rig the 2018 presidential election.

And to think I assumed they were exaggerating when they called you a calculating, unpleasant spergbot.
But do go on.
>implying anyone who doesn't make calculated plans aren't retarded
Okay anon. People who plan ahead and think critically are literally worse than Hitler. We totally agree, and we think acting purely based on emotion is the only way to resolve any problem.
Im on a car heading home now, do you think i can just quit u bby?
15cm and a couple big balls
Like the size of a peanut, thats thr size of the last thing i shat
>He's okay for now, though going light on art for a bit to keep from sending him back down
can you tell him to chill out with the memespeak when he comes in here? it'd probably reduce the vitriol
also he probably is legit bipolar, pills time
Do you guys ever go to the other boards and get surprised at the bump limits there? I've gotten so used to 500/250 that it seems weird any other way. We do storytimes typically over a thousand images long within an afternoon. The christmas swap event alone lasted 40 filled threads and /co/ already has a rather high volume of threads that reach 500. It's weird going to faster boards where the majority of threads get 12 responses and then die, and then a few get 200 and die. Or the slower boards where an auto-sage this big would ensure that a single anon could keep a thread alive for years on end. It's an interesting aspect of board culture anyway. Would you guys change it at all?
Also cats. Cats are good. Gotta keep discussion about cats.
I think somebody I followed posted katia in a reaction pic on tumblr once or twice and I was curious and reverse googled it.
I was cautious, though. I am forever wary of furry porn OCs.
Then I figured out it WASN'T a furry porn OC, and that the comic was pretty good.
I'm an idiot, no beer here, just wine.
/co/. Saw the million threads of "update when" that came up during the big hiatus between '13 and '14. Eventually decided to try it out.
do that kind of swimsuits even have a name
when i was hyped for skyrim, the tes threads on /v/ discussed prequel too
it think that was when it was still in the mspaforums
skyrim was shit but without the hype i probably would not have found prequel as early as i did
He's probably being ironic about it, though.
>mfw I haven't seen the pics yet
Shit, I thought you were rusing, but I asked Kaz about it on Skype and he sent me the whole set. Didn't know the guy had it in him.
Here's to hoping he'll have a few commission slots on his coming Indiegogo.
i drew a picture
>tigers love the fuck out of the water
>cats can swim
>several cat species are adept at hunting water prey
>leopards hunt and kill crocs
You know what this picture needs?
I think he said he was going to draw Katia for first 12 that donated $50.
I was number three. Haven't gotten anything in mail, but then again I'm in rural Texas and I think he be East Coast.
