Why even pretend there is even a slight possibility that this isn't going to happen.

He's not Black Six the administrator of BZPower.He is a fictional character I made who wears a Black Six on his chest whose name sounds a lot like BlackSix the administrator's, and also is probably gone mad with power. Poor guy.Anyway sorry for the delay folks, trying to get a flash to you - hoping it will be up soon.

Bulltop is based on Black Six, Ray is based on InnerRayg, Brian is based on Makaru, Hannah is based on LehvakLah, and Andrew is functionally indistinguishable from McSmeag.

Bulltop is based on Black Six, Ray is based on InnerRayg, Brian is based on Makaru, Hannah is based on LehvakLah, and Andrew is functionally indistinguishable from McSmeag.
Well, it is important to clarify that there are two types of characters we are talking about here - Players are like me, Makaru, LehvakLah, and this guy up here ^. Their characters are all either written directly by them or sometimes written by me with their signature of approval - it's roleplaying. Bulltop is based on Black Six, but Black Six is not playing - everything written that is attributed to his character is by me or one of the other story contributors and is not seen by him before it is posted. Now, he does read the comic and he is a good friend of mine IRL so I try to play it somewhat close to his personality, but with the ordinary cartoonish overexaggeration you'd expect of such a silly enterprise.So that's the deal. There's eight total players, six of which are staff and two of which are special guests. HOWEVER, there are other characters you'll be meeting down the road who are based on members, and while it will hopefully become pretty obvious who they are, they won't be directly referenced as that member and that member will have little to no real influence on what happens with the characters.

omg SNORE ALERT wow ray

 

actually i wouldn't call any of this "role-playing" - the characters are facsimiles of us and our friends (some are nearly-identical to the actual person; others have some major differences) we've been pretty carefully crafting a narrative with specific discernible plot and character arcs and recurring motifs and themes (many of which haven't been introduced yet).  there's some element of immediacy and interaction in it, but that's through the readers more than us. this isn't role-playing any more than richard ii is "monarchizing"

 

So that's the deal. There's eight total players, six of which are staff and two of which are special guests.

 

five and three, not six and two :/

Wow I can't believe I missed the black six.How long does it typically take you to make a batch of these updates?
It really depends on the update. I'll be honest, if it's just me writing and drawing I can have a good five to ten panels done every night no sweat. The delays happen because this is a collaborative effort, and for some reason not everyone is as lucky as I am (read: unemployed) to have so much free time . So if say Makaru's writing an update, he's gotta write what he wants to happen, send it to me, wait for me to finish drawing, then I send it back to him to approve everything, and assuming there are no alterations we then post it. There are rarely no alterations. This process usually takes at least a couple days, but in practice usually ends up being more like a week. Then there are the chatlogs. Oh goodness the chatlogs. They usually take at least a couple hours to get finished, and obviously they have to wait until both parties are available which is often not the case. Then they have to be edited, formatted, and coded for the forums.I do so hate chatlogs.Luckily all these delays do give me time to work on flash animations. That's why there's about to be a pretty big couple of ones all together at once.

Nerd to the rescue! It's rather dark, and a lot of the text is obscured, but here's what I can make out:

...free us from ou- -ondage. an-

 

More to follow. I'm gonna download the first frame which doesn't have the captchalogue in it and try to find more text.

This is totally worth my time.

Dashed stuff is behind the alien guy. Stuff in parentheses was guessed based on the text around it.
 
Edit - Looks like the next panel has some text too, but a lot of it is obscured by Brian, the alien, and the computer.
