This strip is blatantly copying the scenes in Iron Man I where Tony Stark is captive and constructing his first Iron Man suit (I believe it is called the Mark I, hence the title). I originally planned to do this strip about 5 weeks ago but could not seem to either find the screengrabs I wanted or couldn’t find the time to sit and scroll through the movie to do some quick sketches. Well I finally got both! If you are curious, Here are the two main screen grabs I used: Here and here. May I present to you… Sugar Punk Armor version I.
As you can see above, we have instead of the usual strip a pic of the BBW in all his full-blown glory. I am actually on vacation. There will also be a Fourth of July strip on the 3rd in lieu of the normal storyline but the usual strips should be back starting around 7/11. If there are any delays, I’ll keep ya’ll posted. More exciting things to come so stick with us for a grand show!
Things are going very well. We did not roleplay the session last week which has given me a little more time to ensure that everything is set up. We will be re-doing one of the first adventures I did with the shards characters. Its not one that we’ve put in the comic, but I’m going to reset the characters to their original power level and see how my “leveling” system works after the adventure.
So I won’t get to do the adventure I really want to do, BUT I will get to see how things are turning out. Most of the characters are finished, but I’m dreading making Dorothy, she’s always been so complex :). I’m especially excited about this version of Cinderella. I’ve always felt that she had flavor, but was never on the same power level as the other characters.
So things are going well. I don’t have the content ready for the site yet but I’m VERY excited about this whole thing. The Numenara system seems absolutely perfect and I’ve had to make only the slightest tweaks to make it all fit in. So if you’re interested in this type of thing keep a watch out :).
So life has been interesting for me lately with being moved to a Swing shift and a few other things at work. It has cut into my time considerably. On the plus side though Shards RP will be coming back with a vengeance.
A system called “Numenara” released by Monte Cook has caught my attention and I have started to convert the characters over into the Numenara system. So far Velveteen is done and it was actually quite easy with a few minor modifications. We should be running a private session on Saturday to see how this system holds up for fun and roleplay.
If the roleplay is successful I will post the character sheets of all the characters used during the session. I may also record the session for audio only since Jade will not be present and wants to hear what is going on :).
