Howdy! Since my schedule is not currently allowing for frequent comic updates, I added a randomized comic script if it's been more than 14 days since the last update.

I got a message from Brad McQuaid a few days ago asking about my willingness to give his new game, Pantheon, some GU Love. I said yes immediately. Sure, I may have stopped playing EQ years ago. And, Vanguard frustrated the crap out of me. But EQ was my first MMO love. It's the reason GU even exists. And since Brad is the primary name I associate with EQ there was no question in my mind about using GU to direct attention to Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen.
Well, I didn't want to mock the Kickstarter video. And, I didn't want to talk about the discrepancies between the quality of the concept art versus the quality of the in-game videos, since the in-game graphics aren't finished yet. So, the guys at Visionary Realms sent over some lore; and, I spoke with Brad for some time last night. He wants to see an MMO community playing a game like we USED to. A throwback. The Vision rising from the ashes like a phoenix is what we came up with. I think it turned out alright.
Anywho, my whole reason for doing this comic was to see if I could get you guys to hit up the Pantheon Kickstarter, chip in if you can, spread the word if you can't. Here's the Kickstarter link:

The Visionary Realms team are looking at other ways of sweetening the pot for contributors so keep an eye on it.
