Don’t cry.

Dear faithful comic readers,

I regret to inform you that I’ll indefinitely be resigning my post here.  Due to lots of things, I can’t draw the comic anymore.  It has been fun.  Thanks for playing :)

*EDIT*

Apologies from the artist, it’s gonna be a crazy couple weeks irl guyz.  By now I’m sure you all know about my show, but as things will be slowing down in life next week while it’s all set up, I’ll try to get a comic drawn next week sometime.  Thanks for your patience everyone!  <3<3

Happy Belated

Posted by Wes Decker on April 21, 2009

Well, here we are. It’s been a whole year. More than that, in fact, as our official one year mark was last week. So, sorry about the late comic in both that regard, and also in the sense that this is Tuesday. Oh well. I think I’ll survive. Will you?

Wow. One year. A year of doing this. Granted, we haven’t pumped out a new comic every week, but still. It’s more work than you’d think. And I have the easy part! Artista does all the work. She even goes so far as to make strips visually funny when my writing more or less sucks, which is more often than I’d like, but c’est la vie. I think my writing has improved over the past year, and Artista’s art has gone from wonderful to +1 enchanted wonderful or something. Point is, she’s talented, and if you agree with me, leave a comment here for her, or check out her art blog things. I’d also like to send shout outs to Wednesday and Switzerland, who are here to step in when I fail in the bloggering. Switz was kind enough to toss up some filler words yesterday while we were waiting for our anniversarial comic. In the realm of filling in, sometimes both Artista and I have, you know, lives (OR NOT LOL), and fail to get something written or drawn each week. That’s where Cassie has tended to step in. She likes to send me her doodles and whatnot, so of course I slap them up on my website and take all the credit for them. Just kidding. I only take half.

We’ve come a long way. The site is looking cleaner and better than ever. I’m really happy with our current layout and design. However, we’re not entirely where we wanted to be a year in (no shirts, no domain, no money), but that’s really okay. We decided long ago that we would write, draw, produce, and support a Roget’s House of Mystery comic for as long as it remained fun for us, and no longer. The fact that our ADD-addled minds have stuck with this for a full year is remarkable, in my opinion.

So, here’s to another year for both the fictional and actual gangs from the House that would be called Roget’s.

May the Force be with you.

Yaaay stalling!

Posted by tehartista on April 21, 2009

Haha, I’m sneaking in here too before Phoenix has a chance to post a proper blog. *feels sneaky* Everybody come see my show the first week of May! More info at my blog linked up top :D (Shameless, I know.)

PS: Photoshop, though it slows down poor Vera, is truly awesome.

Well, thanks for ruining the surprise, Switz. LOLJKTHX for stalling for us. While we wait for the big birthday celebration, here’s a picture of Aquaman having tea with a shark, courtesy of Cassie. Fantabulous.

stalling

Posted by switzerland86 on April 20, 2009

the one year anniversary is upon us, and clearly we weren’t really ready for it here at RHoM. We’re working on getting the comic up ASAP (and by we, i mean Artista and Phoenix). i guess what i’ve done to help is scribble a possible T-Shirt design during my Physics class (and that one is unfinished, much like my Physics Homework).

Still stalling here…

the Sharks are crushing my soul.

Stupid Internets

Posted by Wes Decker on April 13, 2009

No blog this week, due to incredibly limited internet access at the moment. I promise we’ll get something big for next week, both in the comic and blog realms. Ta ta for now.

You couldn’t drive a wheelchair,

PS I am so excited to play D&D this summer.

Titles Can Be Hard To Think Of

Posted by Wes Decker on March 23, 2009

Sorry for the delayed comic, folks. I had it all ready to go last night, but it was late and I frankly was in no mood to blog. So here we are today! Yay. I’ll maybe think about writing a blog beforehand, but we’ll see. Anyway! Apologies for the SUPER NERDY jokes in this week’s comic, but they were too juicy to resist. Besides, I think you can get the gist of the point of the stuff. Yeah.

So, the Player’s Handbook 2 came out last week. It was pretty exciting, as it marked the return of many classic classes and races to 4th edition, including gnomes, half-orcs, bards, druids, and sorcerers. I was especially looking forward to bards, as they had always been my favorite. I think it must be the “jack of all trades, master of none” aspect that appeals to me. The bard is able step into any of the traditional roles of the party, and temporarily fill it. Of course, the bard can never do the job as well as a class who is designed for it. 4th edition revitalizes the bard somewhat, giving him more usefulness in certain roles, while taking away some of the versatility found in 3rd and 3.5 editions. Also revitalized is the sorcerer, which was always a close second favorite. Basically, to sum up, I really want to play a campaign. Possibly over the summer.

Now that the rest of you have returned from skipping over that long, daunting paragraph, one which Artista will inevitably sum up as “blah blah, bards, versatility, blah blah”, we can get back to reality. Or at least as close to reality as one can achieve over the internets. Stay safe, everyone. I’ll see you next week.

I never thought I’d be happy to hear anything that sounds like Creed,

PS Beware the dread gazebo.

“Free” Is Just Another Word For “Socialist”

Posted by Wes Decker on March 15, 2009

37watchmen2

Go see Watchmen. Seriously.

No blog or haiku this week. I leave you, instead, with a poem by Rudyard Kipling. This poems reminds me of a dear friend, who just recently has gone home. We’ll miss you dearly, John.

It’s a trap,

Phoenix


“If”
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream–and not make dreams your master,
If you can think–and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!”

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings–nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much,
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And–which is more–you’ll be a Man, my son!
-Rudyard Kipling
