Fire Emblem: Dawn of Darkness - The Comic Series

Recommended Posts

Okay, I'm finally getting these up! I just wound up being so busy the past couple days. >_< But the gang has found Azura at last and they're all together now. ^^ The characters we've met so far, that is.

Comic 26: Where's Azura?

Comic 27: Inside the Cave

Comic 28: Azura's Discovery

Hmm, I wonder what these ruins have to do with anything? We'll see! Also, as comic 27 shows, I will sometimes do three panels per row rather than four. Sometimes I just can't have a number of panels divisible by four due to how the dialogue is spread out, so yeah.

Btw, if you noticed, the title of comic 27 answers the question in comic 26's title. lol

Gah, sorry for taking awhile with this again. >_< It turned out that for some reason, I never saved a complete Photoshop file for comic 30, so I had to take more time to update that one. It also had a lot of mugs to replace.

But anyway, we continue as Azura and company explore the hidden ruins she found.

Comic 29: The Ruins - Part 1

Just to clarify, the reason Marc and Leona have mounted overworld sprites despite that they left their horses at the cave entrance is that I didn't feel it was necessary to make new sprites that I would only use one time. Plus, viewers might not be able to tell that they're an axe knight and lance knight if they happen to find this comic without having looked at any of the others featuring them.

Comic 30: The Ruins - Part 2

Comic 31: The Ruins - Part 3

Hmm, things are starting to get interesting, it seems! Also, this ends chapter 3. ^^

I apologize for leaving this hanging yet again, I'd been away over the weekend and hadn't really had much of a chance to update at least three comics. Plus I had to update some more mugs first as well as a couple battle sprites because two new characters debut in comic 34! ^^ And we see chapter 4's battle already!

Comic 32: An Odd Story

Comic 33: Galden is Invaded

Comic 34: Bryan and Skye Charge

We're getting pretty close to where I originally left off, btw. So shortly, updates will slow down again because I'll be going back to making new comics to continue the series. I'm still not sure what I'll do about dialogue bubbles though, since FEPlanet's dialogue bubble maker tool is still down along with the site's other spriting tools.

What will Azura's mother tell the gang, I wonder? We'll find out soon enough!

Geez, lately I just can't stop taking my sweet old time here. But in my defense, these next two comics had a lot of mugs to swap out, especially comic 36. So it was going to take a bit more time regardless of what else was going on.

But now Bryan and Skye introduce themselves and relay some interesting info to our heroes. We'll be seeing a lot of these two from now on, btw! Bryan is my favorite character in this story as well, and we'll see why in some future chapters. ;)

Comic 36: Bryan's Information

Oh, and don't worry, the next few won't take nearly as long to update. I just need a little break. xP

Next three comics! Toldja they wouldn't take as long. ^^

We finally meet Azura's mother! There's some Marc and Leona humor as well. lol Ike also overhears a whispered conversation between Bryan and Skye.

Comic 37: Antsy Marc

Comic 38: Mother Hen Moment

Comic 39: Overheard Whispers

And with that, we've caught up to where I originally left off. This means that the series will now be put on hold, as FEPlanet's bubble maker tool is still down and I haven't figured out what I'm going to do about dialogue bubbles now yet. When I do find a solution though, I'll only be posting one or two comics at a time from this point on since I'm no longer updating old ones, but making completely new ones from scratch.

Okay, I'm reviving this. I just got tired of waiting for FEPlanet to fix its crap and FEditor is just a bunch of mumbo jumbo to me, so I finally made a new comic using a different font for the dialogue. I still got it to be pixelated and have that light shadow though.

Comic 40: Lorelle's Confession

Next time: Lorelle tells the rest of what she knows!

Oops, I forgot I made this thread! xP But I finished a new comic the other day, and here it is.

Comic 41: Lorelle's Story

dod_comic_41__lorelle_s_story_by_great_a

We now see how Azura came to be raised by Lorelle. If this were a game though, this part would use some CGs rather than normal conversation backgrounds. One CG would show Lorelle finding baby Azura on her doorstep and another would show baby Azura herself with the pendant.

Okay, I have no idea why I let this go a long time without an update again... But here's one! :)

Comic 42: Her Mother's Daughter

Heh, Bryan's not a very social guy, is he? He might seem kind of rude, but we'll learn more about him soon enough. :)

I forgot about this after awhile... And it's been a little over a year. :/ But I'm picking it up again! I'm not one to abandon in-progress stuff like this forever. And from now on, I think I'll try to do one to two new comics a week for this, depending on whether I've got the necessary sprites ready.

Next comic is done! I would've had it done sooner, but that Photoshop issue I made a thread about happened. I figured out how to fix it though, so all is good now. :)

Comic 44: Escorts

 

dod_comic_44__escorts_by_great_aether-da

Just a talk between Ike and Bryan about escorting Azura to Aracion, Talgria's capital, and of course, Marc and Leona jumping in at the tail end. It's a bit long, and I could've split it at Bryan's "Oh, he definitely is" comment, but this whole thing is actually half of a bigger scene, and the latter half is honestly better off NOT being split, so I would've ended up with two short comics and one long one and that's just awkward to me. If I have to split up scenes, I prefer to split them up as evenly as possible.

Hmm, looks like a lot of the spoiler tags broke in the forum upgrade. I don't have time to fix them all though, so they'll just have to stay as is (aside from those in the OP, since they're going to get longer and longer).

But here's the next comic! I know I said this conversation was only going to be two comics, but even though I said this half would not be split, I changed my mind and split it anyway. I figure since the tone changes completely to be more amusing after this, the amusing moments ought to get their own comic. :P I don't know why I said before that it wouldn't be split here, but...it is. xP And it's pretty short. But oh well.
