And so begins Chapter 2! Completely different from Chapter 1 I assure you! What? No its totally not the same page as the first page of Chapter 1! I mean look! Adventurers! And I pulled no punches, I have a subscriber cameo on this first page!

Sarge from the webcomic "The Descended" by ranger_brian_new is the guy in all red armor! Check him out here!
http://descended.thecomicseries.com/

Not only that, but many background characters will be my own cameos from past D&D campaigns. The chick that Sarge is shootin' the breeze with is Lex, the halfling upfront is Biggs, and the rough lookin' elf behind Skirmish is Carric. They are all from my past webcomic, "The Comic of +1 Awesomeness"! Check that here if you like!

And look! Shading! I know I did some here and there at the end of Chapter 1, but now its officially a THING! Let me know what you think. Slowly, but surely I'll build upon the art until it hits a sweet spot! Also, the page size has changed. Its a bit bigger now!

Next update on Friday!

EDIT: I reduced the height and width by about 100 pixels. It was a bit too big!

Skirmish using his tail as a belt on his little jedi master robe is a nice touch.

ooh I am excited about chapter two

Now I can't stop seeing it as jedi robes. Now there'll have to be a spin-off starwars chapter with Skirmish as Yoda and Goredamn as Anakin but he actually wants to be Darth Vader instead of just angsting into lava. Are you happy. Look at what you've done.

Also I'm excited too for chapter two. I'm glad to see excitement cause I'm doing a lot of different things this chapter than the last (as I say it on a page that directly mimics another)(I relish in the irony).

Registering as an adventurer? I'd have thought an evil guy like Goredamn would have done it under the table!

He would have but there's not a lot of room under that table.

Ba dum tss!

Registering is second nature to Goredamn. I mean, how different could this be from the DMV?

The art department was given extra funding this chapter. In funding I mean shading, perspective focus, and... uh... a lot more time? Yeah!

Thanks! I can't wait to get this chapter out there, its got some really neat stuff!

I am loving the art, it looks a lot better than in chapter 1 already! I can't wait to see how this venture turns out. Skirmish is so adorable X3

OHBOI OHMY! Thanks! I just hope the addition to the art doesn't slow page completion down too much. This venture will be a grand one, that is, if it doesn't get cut short by adventurers cutting down our evil duo!

You should make 2 shirts to sell, one with the good alignment emblem and one with the evil!

*Big yellow text floating into space*

-Alignment: The Goredamn Strikes Back-
It is a dark time for our "villain". Although his dungeon has been destroyed, Ghaston Fel has driven him from the realm he knew and now had him pursue adventuring to inact revenge.

Evading certain death on many occasion, the unwilling ally Skirmish led by Goredamn has established a place in line in the remote Registry of Making Ventures.

*Now the text is too fast to keep up so you just listen to the awesome theme and pretend you know whats going on*

Thanks! The shading should spice things up a bit from now on. That shirt idea is cool! Once I establish more characters, maybe a group of the evil aligned on the evil emblem shirt, and vice versa for good? Make them black and white? Oh the possibilities!

Dude, check out this card game! The FIRST thing I thought of was... "Man THIS should be an Alignment game!" Jsut replace the "Boss Monster" with "Dungeon master"

Wow! What a cool card game concept! I can totally see an Alignment version of it. Tim and Dave would be adventurer cards that would go to a dungeon with the least loot and Goredamn would be a Dungeon Master that always has all of his card effects backfire on him!

Thanks, Centcomm! I love finding places for the cameos. Sarge worked great here for contributing to the lack of red on the main panel!

Oh, wow, wasn't expecting his cameo to be so early. :P

And, hey. Adventurers must have at least a slightly lower standard than Dungeon Masters, 'cause Tim and Dave were adventurers, and clearly, Goredamn can match at least them!

First cameo! Sarge's red armor is a good distinct feature of the character, it fit well in a page without much red!

Adventurers are more plentiful than Dungeon Masters, so Gordy could have a better shot at this! Y'know, just as long nobody knows his master plan and that he's got a monster behind him.

Knowing Goredamn, probably back to the pub! Though, he does have Skirmish now and two heads are better than one!

You have reached the sweet spot- the shading and details are just gorgeous! Perhaps this is a sign for more fortunate events to come for our new adventurer?

YES! I'm glad you noticed the perspectives since I actually had a layer dedicated to colored lines for just that. I usually don't do that, but it really does help in the long run.
