Originally a guest comic for Kelly Aaron's web comic. This is also the comic that convinced me to try my luck at my own comic. I really couldn't think of what media to start with. I hadn't drawn anything in years. I tried using a Wacom Bamboo pad but simply couldn't get used to it, so I was left with hand drawing images via pen & ink and scanning them in. All the color is done with photoshop layers and screenshot backgrounds blended with a photoshop film grain filter to help them blend with the character images a little better. Overall I was satisfied with the outcome. The whole image took me about 3 weeks to do due to my limited free time.

I'm still currently experimenting with different character styles, hence why you'll likely see face/hairstyle changes among Sara and Kleeyo in each comic for some time. That, plus I simply have not yet developed the skill that would allow me to draw the same character multiple times from different angles and still have them look the same. I hope to acquire that as the comic goes on.

This comic also serves as a good introductory setting my my characters, including showing their jobs and the relationship between the two.

Exit question: Do you think a 3rd faction like the Argent Crusade would survive if it became an actual cooperative only all racial-encompassing player faction? Or is a faction war ultimately essential for a game named world of WARcraft?

I think a 3rd faction would make perfect sense lore-wise. I'm sure there are people out there on both sides that are tired of fighting and just want to work together to try to make things better for everyone.

Game-wise ? That's probably a different story. I'm guessing the mechanics needed for three factions would throw some pretty big wrenches in many aspects of the games. Especially battlegrounds.

I found you're comic through WoW Eh? and really enjoyed it. Look forward to many more.

Looking at how the Forsaken have been acting, I can easily see them breaking off from the Horde, and being at odds with the Argent Crusade. It would make perfect sense in terms of lore; Garrosh isn't too terribly happy with Sylvanas' recent actions.

The logistics of implementing such a change in-game would be a nightmare, however. All Forsaken characters would have to be given a free race change if they wished to stay in the Horde, the Horde in turn would probably gain a race, and there would have to be some incentives for the two new factions to be populated by players.

Very plausible lore wise. I'd expect that to happen if any Warcraft games come out after WoW (i.e. another RTS)

I'd imagine if the Forsaken broke off from the horde, the blood elves would as well, since Sylvanas, being a former Silvermoon High Elven general, acted as a mediator between the horde and the Blood Elves that founded their allegiance in the first place. When I first heard the Belfs were going to be a Horde race, I was rather confused how that could be, then I played the belf quest line that takes you to Undercity to meet Sylvanas and then to Orgrimmar to meet Thrall. It made sense after was all because of Sylvanas. It gives the belfs/forsaken that extra tie.

Glad you made a comic series: I loved this guest comic when it showed on WowEh. I can't help it, I'm a sucker for tauren ladies. ...Don't look at me like that, they're just so dang cute! Yes I am taking my meds. No, none of them are for psychosis.

ANYWAY. Lore wise? The Argent Dawn/Crusade would be my choice. It would be awesome if they had a mechanic in-game that would allow people who don't care for PVP to pick a "neutral" Argent affiliation and so could visit both Alliance and Horde. Imagine the incongruity of seeing tauren or trolls in Stormwind or Dranei in Orgrimmar. But while that would be nice, it would probably make the game mechanics insanely complex and most people would probably pick that instead of the two 'main' factions, so I don't see it happening anytime soon. Still, at least there's fun comics like this to tide us over on that. ;)

Looks decent, nice artwork, nice though, well done; but the grammar errors are driving me bonkers.
Proof read your material please :-)
