Guest Strip: "Eight Years Later"
Posted: Tuesday August 5th, 2008 by

Talk about timely submissions. I didn't do a comic last night because I misspent my time yesterday, and then kept nodding off at my desk before I'd even started one last night. So I was going to post some more random artwork I did a couple months back. But this submission is awesome and was just sitting there waiting on me when I woke up this morning.

Here's what Carl had to say about his submission:
Hey Woody,

Define Irony: Spending sixty-seven levels taking sadistic joy in pounding Fippy Darkpaw into the dirt at every opportunity, only to have your ass handed to you on a platter by a gnoll pup a few moments later.

I don't know how long it's been since you checked in with Ye Ol' Everquest but Sony recently jacked Blackburrow into the 70 - 80 range as part of their Living Legacy campaign. [more info] The zone hasn't been redesigned any, all the graphics still looks the same, but everything's exponentially more powerful and there's a few extra mobs that look like rejects from an episode of Gargoyles floating around. Riftseekers, I believe they're called. I suspect they're handing out steroids and PCP just so they can see how many people get caught at the entrance. And to top it all off, they're dropping some very decent gear - at least from my perspective (I'm still wearing a Qeynos Badge of Nobility) - in order to further entice the masses to flock to their deaths. So far it seems to be working.

Sony hasn't said how long this is going to last. Last month it was Lower Guk that got a boost. I'm hoping it's going to be a shifting thing, perhaps with lower level dungeons getting a temporary boost every once in a while. When I saw this, I just couldn't resist the comparison to your first strip way back when blackburrow gnolls were great for practicing disarm as handing them sword couldn't really improve their odds any.... Ouwy.

Well, the artwork in this submission is awesome. And I appreciate Carl bailing me out, even though he didn't know that's what he was doing. So, to help me say thanks, I encourage you to visit Carl's DeviantArt Page: *SCOm1359AP.

Psst! Carl... I think those page views and people watching you are fixing to go up.
