Prince of Sartar. Comic

Recommended Posts

So I thought I'd start a thread here for the excellent comic, so we can discuss what's going on, announce new episodes etc.

And here's a link to the thread over on rpg.net, for further reference

I've bookmarked that site in the past, and keep meaning to check out that webcomic but never have gotten around to it.

How's the writing? The visual appearance is stunning; there's something about the coloring, tones and vividness, that I find very appealing.

Have they ever considered putting out a printed version, either through POD or perhaps crowdfunding through a Kickstarter?

There was a printed version at Kraken, but not with the glossy paper it deserved! I have the webcomic on a rss-feed serving me fresh pages when they appear. WRiting is good. :)

 Moon Design said they will print a version once the series end. The one published for GenCon and the Kraken was a stop gap filler for the dedicated few who attended.

Yes, Chaosium will do a much nicer book for the comic once the story is further along. The promo version sold at Gen Con and at Essen is not what the finished product for distribution and general sale will be printed like.

I love the art and the depiction of Glorantha, it fits my vision so doesn't jar in anyway and I find the story easy to follow. It's not a tale that i'm 100% familiar with and i'm glad it's being told in this medium. I hope they do more like it as it's a great way to bring in new converts, compared to the (quite intimidating for some) Guide to Glorantha .

Kalin's art is fantastic and the story really captures a whole different aspect of life in Glorantha.  I've really enjoyed the distinct views of Gloranthan culture that it's provided.

I love Prince of Sartar. It's well worth checking out, even if you aren't into Glorantha. The visuals are stunning and the story is good too. There's a new episode (page) every week, and it's something that I always look forward to.

Thanks all! Although bits and pieces of the tale are going to be familiar to some, I guarantee that even the most die-hard Gloranthologist will find plenty of brand new material. 

I personally find Prince of Sartar (or right now it appears to be Princess of Esrolia) the most revelatory way Kalin and I have to explore Glorantha. We learn plenty of new things almost every page!

Yes. I can't see that kind of outburst ending well. I love the look the two Lunars are giving each other!

At first I thought they should surely look more shocked. But now I realise they are looking at each other with an "uh-oh, this isn't going to end well for this silly girl, oh well, we've seen it all before" kind of thing.

Don't assume HQG is a spoiler. This won't exactly follow it.

Excellent! I've been doing my best to try to forget the HQG examples, but it's even better if I don't have to worry about it.

Bigger when their weapons are in use.

Now think about the fact that they can be abnormally stealthy (Darkness, plus lead armor that doesn't clank) and that they *prefer* to attack at night. It's no question why the folks to the North in Peloria just lump them into various categories of "horrible monster" (digijelm, krjalki). It's also clear why Yelmalio (in spite of the fact that the RQ2/RQ3 versions of the cult offered such paltry magic for direct combat) was so popular among Darkness fighters - Catseye (12 hours) plus Sunbright (15 minutes, more with Extension) could easily spell the difference between utter devastation and a slightly fair fight for a group of human warriors opposed by a troll horde.

If anyone is interested, I wrote a review in my blog and I interviewed the artist: Kalin Kadiev:

http://elruneblog.blogspot.com.es/2015/09/resena-de-prince-of-sartar-y-entrevista.html

Yes, it's in Spanish, but there's the Translate button on the right margin, and Kalin's interview can be read in English at the bottom of the page.  ;)

I hope you like it.
