Title: No S#!+, there I was…
Post by: The 6th Rogue on Oct 05, 11, 04:18:17 pm CDT
Years ago Dmitri and I had a long discussion about the rise of webcomics and I offered to write one which he would do the art for.  One thing let to another and the years passed and we never got much further than the ideas stage.  Instead of just deleting the file I'll be publishing the scripts for the strip here for you to read and "see in your mind's eye."  I had envisioned the art style to be similar to What's New with Phil & Dixie by Phil Foglio (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phil_Foglio) but feel free to imagine it any way you want.
 
Here, without further adeu are the scripts for the webcomic that still ain't:  No S#!+, there I was…

Strip 0 – AKA The Teaser Strip

Panel one
Description – Parchment Strip over the top of the panel “Why we LARP…”  Art Style Change – use your Fantasy/Dragonlance style of artwork like the picture of you and Ana in character on your website resume instead of the cartoon art style.  Ron and Dmitri, with steel and bow drawn, are surrounded by a group of slavering demi-human monsters.  Both our heroes wear determined looks and are drawn side by side ready for battle.
Dialog - NONE

Panel two

Dialog - NONE

Panel three

Dialog
RON: Hot damn but I love a good fight.
DMITRI: Ron, I told you…NO THEME MUSIC!!!

Strip 1

Panel one
Description – Cartoon Geof and Ron in business casual attire staring at the reader, office cube farm background.  Ron has a cup of coffee in his hand.

Dialog
GEOF: I’m Geof, AKA Dmitri, the artist.
RON: I’m Ron, AKA Ron, the writer.  This strip, “No S#!+, there I was…” is about a group of people that you see everyday but don’t know are among you.
GEOF:  These are people in your office and professionals in all sorts of carriers that secretly or overtly…


Panel two
Description – Dmitri and Ron, same positions, in medieval garb with Ren Faire street and buildings in background.  Dmitri staring into the cleavage of a buxom cartoon Anna in garb with just his eyes, still face forward.  Ron’s coffee is replaced with a frothing flagon.

Dialog
RON: Attend Renaissance Festivals in costume.
GEOF: It’s called ‘GARB’ nitwit.


Panel Three
Description – Dmitri and Ron, same positions in King Arthur style SCA garb.  Two SCA knights are fighting in the background.  One has just brained the other with rattan so hard his helm is reduced to an accordion and the rattan has started to split.

Dialog
GEOF: Take part in meetings and events of the Society for Creative Anachronisms.
RON: Or any of it’s offshoot organizations…or anything else that goes on both the FBI’s “Unauthorized Militia” and “Questionable Organized Activities” lists that doesn’t involve firearms.
ACCORDIAN HEAD: LIGHT!!!


Panel Four
Description – Dmitri and Ron, again in the same positions but Ron is turned to walk out of frame fuming mad with a boffo sword in his hand, garb is changed to LARP style garb, less historically accurate, more fantasy and meant for getting dirty in the woods.  Dmitri is holding up a obvious bean bag and pointing to it while smirking at the reader

Dialog
RON: (word bubble is smoldering) Then there’s LARPing…
GEOF: That’s short for Live Action Role playing where D&D freaks spend a weekend camping, pretending to be their characters, beating each other up with padded weapons called boffo and hoping they don’t hit Ron in the head with a “Fire Blast” since head shots tend to be against the rules and make him spill his drink.
RON: I’m gonna show that gimp what a light hit is SCA style…

RON: latex vs. duct tape.

Panel four description – same as panel one but Coworker’s eyes are bulging out and he’s dropped his coffee.
RON: (oblivious to Coworker's panicked state) I'm saying that not only is duct tape more durable but there's a feeling of satisfaction you get when you use it.  Latex?  FAH!  What the hell does Dmitri know?  Waste of money.

Panel two
In bold text over the top "WHAT THE PLAYERS IMAGINE"

Panel four
In bold text over the top "WHAT EVERYONE ELSE SEES"

Description – Geof is walking out of frame.  Ron, looking miffed, has the remote in hand and is pointing it at the TV set.
Dialog
GEOF: That crap?  That’s all just weepy homoerotic bullshit.  Not worth a real man’s time.  They put that in the film so the broads would line up around the corner to see it.

(metaphor – she doesn’t see things straight) and her posture is one of a babbling idiot. Instead of a word bubble the dialog is written directly behind her filling the whole frame with inane babble.
Dialog
WENCH: Well I heard from Trimileah that Dmitri said that Lunk told him about Fred saying Sally thought she said that you were cute and that you didn’t even give her a second thought when you bought beer last night and she was two people down the bar from you and looking at the back of your head hoping you’d buy her a beer so she could sleep with you and then Jim heard from Brian who told Mike that James over heard you say…

Description – Same as panel one but Ron is thumbing over his shoulder with one hand and rubbing his face with the other.  The drink is sprayed all over the stock between wench and Ron and the flagon is upturned and sitting on one item of stock.

GEFO:  BANNED!?!  Dude, you went once two years ago.

Panel two
Description – Ron at his computer desk on the cell phone staring at the monitor.
Dialog
RON: Yup, I got challenged to a duel as soon as game started.  I figured between the kendo, staged combat training, stunt man certs, fencing lessons, martial arts and other stuff over the last 20 years it’d be no issue.
GEOF: (over the phone) Yeah, and?
RON: I went totally Batman on his ass.  I must’ve hit him 80 or 90 times in a three minute round.  He just kept saying “block,” “dodge,” parry,” or “no effect.”  After it’s over he tells me I’m real good but since I’m first level and he’s 38th all that didn’t do anything and he just killed me and robbed my corpse.  Real smarmy about it too.
GEOF: (on the phone) No one told you it was a XP based LARP, not a skill based LARP?  You lost your cool didn’t you?

Panel three

Dialog - None

Dialog
RON: No matter what type of medieval event you can attend you always run the risk of meeting up with a self appointed authority on what is considered “period.”

Panel three
Description – A peasant washer woman by a stream washing clothes with a rough bar of soap.  Dialog text is written on a parchment.
Dialog - Soap was originally invented in the lands that became France sometime in the 700’s.  Although the techniques in making it have been refined over the last 1200 years it was found to be widely in use within a century of its invention.  More so in warmer climbs since getting wet in the winter is not the best of ideas.
