This was my first RPG experience, and I've played this, perhaps, too much. I would like to make a webcomic based on this in the same vein as 8-bit theatre, but I have not been able to make a single comic look appealing. Maybe I just need some help. I even made up new sprites in 16-bit to spoof it.

This game can be beaten in a few hours. If you never run once, you can max out your level as well and never have trouble with any fight you come across. Grinding is never a requirement.

Hey bro, do your comic. Don't worry about what it looks like. The cereal guy meme proves you can convey your thoughts in black and white stick figures. If you want to do a comic, just grab a sharpie and some copy paper and let it out. Writers have to write. You can scan it and put it on teh internets later. Do your thing.

Thank you for the encouragement, but I'm a bit of a perfectionist. I might start a comic as a blog at some point, but I don't have much in the way of plans right now. I do have the requisite sprites to start off with at least. Enough to do the first two chapters anyway.

You could start by doing what you can do. Did you not say:

"I do have the requisite sprites to start off with at least. Enough to do the first two chapters anyway."

So, what's stopping you from doing the first two chapters? Sometimes a creative project snowballs once it starts and gets better as it goes. Plus, you have at least one fan ready made.

Write now, I don't have much motivation to do it, even though I want to.
My novel, on the other hand, is progressing by leaps and bounds. What about you? Wanna help?

Help? You mean like a CYOA? No, I leave that stuff to the role-playing crowd. They come up with decent stuff, but I like stories that hang together a bit more, where the start and end have more symmetry because the same person wrote both.

I don't think you fully understand the concept of collaboration. We don't necessarily have to both pitch story. I have no problem writing the entire script for the comic and spreading endlessly. I'm sure that someday, I'll have someone working under me pulling the details together and pointing out questions. Probably my own kids though. ;p

Anyway, as far as the strip goes, I find spriting to be excessively boring and as for drawing, I'm not very good. So, making a sprite comic and putting sprites in their proper place, and so forth, I find it boring. I've tried it. Doing it myself, I couldn't pace it properly, the strips didn't particularly look good and I don't think I surpassed 100 strips.

Ironic, or so it may seem, I have no problem modifying a sprite sheet to look the way I want it to look, and I enjoy working with FLASH editors, but I'm not very good and have very little time to improve with work and such. I just remember a movie I want to do, too.

What does CYOA stand for?

Well, I remember that this was a pretty good game, and now that I have a Game Gear once again, I guess that I ought to try to find it again.

It's one of my favorites. I'm even using it as a model for one of my books.

Of course, the Al Karria character is female and meets a different end. Of course, those who haven't played won't know what to expect. ;p

I actually still have the game cartridge somewhere.
