Title: Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan: Headsmen
Post by: reinder on January 09, 2006, 01:24:55 pm
I haven't used the Xepher forums to promote and as they don't seem to offer an obvious place to do that, I don't think I'll make a habit of it. But I'm very proud of the new storyline that just started on the website today, so just this once, I want to give you all the song and dance in the hope that you'll take a look at it:

The Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan story The Green Knight's Belt (http://rocr.net/index.php?p=GKBcover) has ended and, as promised, the follow-up is a new story that I've been working on since the end of November. Headsmen (http://rocr.net/index.php?p=20060109) has started today. I hope people like it - it's very unlike a typical webcomic in that I've really worked hard to give it some production value. For the first time in a year, I'm publishing a freshly-drawn webcomic in colour!

Headsmen is set just days after the events in The Green Knight's Belt, with Kel taking a different role from the one we've seen so far. In the stories from the 1990s, we saw Kel as a surly, put-upon character, but considering what we learned about her background in stories like The Rite of Serfdom (http://rocr.net/index.php?p=20020923), she must have initially considered being with the Gang as a step up from working for the Green Knight. Also, she can't have had much of a notion how the human world worked in those initial weeks in the forests near Dungil Fens. This story, then, is intended as a bridging chapter between The Green Knight's Belt and the stories that follow it. I'm having a ball making it; I hope you'll enjoy reading it.
