Here's a little picture that we did for you, to celebrate Halloween! Hope you enjoy it!

It's a game - Guess who everyone is, and why I chose that class/race for them!

I've had this image in my head for almost an entire year now. Sylene had barely even been introduced at this point, and Chad was non-existent. But the others, we'd pretty much planned what they were going to be. John was the most surprising of all! We knew he'd be a human-"something" but didn't finally nail it until the night before I started drawing this. (Thursday)

I also have each one singularly, I'll probably post them later on tomorrow. I want to say that these are "Wow-like" and not actually supposed to be identical to wow, although some components definitely are very much like WoW indeed. Also, sorry if you hate wow. We don't play it any more, but once upon a time, we enjoyed it a lot.

PS
The Gnome warlock's mask has two front teeth missing and appears to be wearing glasses through the mask.

What makes the whole picture is John's determined expression.

@Marvin Lacroix Maglaqui - Thank you ;)

@ArtistXXY - It was 2:02pm for us too, and I think she included the Bunneh shirt because it's going to be part of my costume ;)

@Jacob Gristwood - You wouldn't believe the rep grind ;)

@Linden - We were initially thinking of doing him as a Paladin or Warrior or something, but then we thought that he's typically so ridiculous, that this outfit would suit him perfectly... And so June opted to make him look like he fit in... Or was trying hard to pretend that he did :D

Pretty much that. :P
Anyway, will you still have something for Monday, or is this an early Monday one?
Also: RZ looks like he's wearing Skorne's equipment from Gauntlet Legends / Gauntlet: Dark Legacy. Was this intentional, or coincidental?
Edit: Come to think of it...
RZ: Skorne. Beth: (Blue) Valkyrie. John: (Yellowish) Wizard. (Need food badly! :P) Red Guy: not the Warrior, but the Minotaur, the Warrior's secret character. (That might make John the Jackal instead. What were the Valkyrie and Archer's secret characters, again? I can't remember.) And Sylene is the (green) Archer.

Yay, I love that game! :D (Tell me I got it right, please, please, pleeeease... I want to know that I'm not the only guy who owns and still plays Gauntlet Legends and its sequel/remake Gauntlet: Dark Legacy. A bit of a nerd, I suppose. :P)

@VampireWombat - Thank you :D

@ranger_brian_new - Unless otherwise stated, Monday and Thursday are "Canon Updates". Anything else is a bonus and doesn't affect that regular updates.

It is actually modelled after the Tier 6 Warlock Helm from WoW, except with R.Z.'s glasses and the two front teeth missing ;)

I really enjoyed playing that game with friends ;) Legends, anyways.. I don't think I saw the other one...

You didn't miss much. ;) I unfortunately only have the PS1 version of Legends, which sucks because it's limited to 2 players. In a way, that makes the sequel/remake Dark Legacy (PS2) better, because it can have 4, and has a lot of extra content, but it's way too easy in comparison. So, it's fun for a while, but without even trying, I got 100% completion...by myself...in a week...without the cheat codes.

Gauntlet Legends is so much better. I kinda envy those who have Legends on a console system which CAN support 4 players, 'cause 2 player (while still entertaining) just isn't the same. ;) (I believe there is a version which can do 4, plus there's always the original arcade coin-eater version of Legends. Obviously, I own neither.)

Can you tell me where Sylene got her costume,
I want to wear it tonight!

I now suddenly magically remember the names of the secret characters! (AKA, I looked them up on Wikipedia. :P)
Warrior-Minotaur (as mentioned),
Wizard-Jackal (as mentioned),
Archer-Tigress (I don't think I unlocked her, ever),
Valkyrie-Falconess (same, I think).

RZ looks like he's using Skorne's blast attack. (His weakest attack, by the way, if I remember. This is Legends; I never beat it--couldn't find every Runestone; I got into the Cathedral, but that was it. So, final Skorne might have a weaker attack in Legends, but in Legacy, he doesn't.) John looks like he's about to throw a potion. Sylene doesn't look like anything, but Beth might be...I dunno, maybe using one of her turbo attacks?

@moizmad - Some bosses in WoW.. Months of grinding high level raids..

@ranger_brian_new - It's WoW based, so it cant be perfect :) The Jackal was pretty awesome :)

I like it!

For multiple reasons, I thought I was done with WoW. Then Cataclysm was given a solid release date of December 7. Now i'm sitting here redownloading and reinstalling all the patches on my new computer. It's taken almost 24 hours of WoW sucking up all my bandwidth and making it nearly unbearable to use the internet for anything else. Cata better be good.

@geekgrrl - I don't think you have to play it to appreciate the drawing :)

@Kevin - I am done... June has expressed an interest, but I've been playing Team Fortress 2, and I'll wait for Diablo 3.. I'm soooo done with WoW :)
Ant (Guest) edit delete reply
Beth - Blood elf priest
RZ - Gnome warlock
Chad - would say Tauren Pally but not out yet so Tauren warrior.
Selene - NightElf Hunter
John - Noob :P Actually no idea really prob same as him. Could be a mage

Was distracted by Beth's cleavage
Ant (Guest) edit delete reply
you can never be done with WoW...you will be back....:P

nearly 6 years on and still playing. 6 level 80s :D

I think you nailed them all, Ant.. Except Chad might be a DK, I forget.

And I can safely say I'm done... Every time I think back on my time there, I tend to only remember the bad stuff at the end, so it's very unlikely that I will go back... I already did the "leave and come back due to friends getting in on it" thing, but at this point, I've seen too many friends who dragged me into it ditch it themselves, so again, just more emotional baggage keeping me away :)

@Ant I was >< this close to making him a mage. A) Because he's squishy, and B) because of his high INT (IE brains)

@Magravan please say you remember good times with your nerdy wife playing a game together ..........

Not anymore ;)

June was talking about wanting to look into it, so maybe she might at some point... Not sure... If she gets into it, she might drag me back into it, but I doubt it.

My last memories of it weren't too good...

I like WoW! I have actually been planning these images for around a year now. :)
Mariska edit delete reply
I've actually been tabbed out of WoW reading these. I stumbled across an image taken from an earlier comic, and fortunately enough the creator left a link to the full site in one of the comments. :D This Halloween picture was a delightful surprise to say the least, and I'm enjoying reading the comics as well.
