I'll wait and see on the RPG. It could be good, although I'm hoping they play up the abstract/philosophical side of things while still having a decent set of mechanics to it.

Honestly, this does seem like shilling. It might not be, sure, but that's giving this thread the benefit of the doubt, which is precisely what shills take advantage of.

Good art, but weak story, okay world, bad characters, terrible dialogue, and it's altogether a little too far up its own ass. Not a game I'd play, because you can't really use the one good aspect.

I know the artist posts here, and while I can't say for certain that they're not the one making all the those begging and shilling posts, I don't really think they are, because at the very least the art is good enough for me to extend the benefit of the doubt. I'm hoping they also don't get discouraged by the people calling out those posts that seem like shilling. It's not a great comic yet, but there's potential.

If you really wanted to be honest, you'd be the first one to point out that a webcomic initially runs on advertisements and requires a fanbase before it can try to monetize itself in other ways.

It's dishonestly ignoring that which makes people think you are a shill. You might not be a shill, but you are certainly acting like one. You can deny the former, but you can't deny the latter.

I dunno, man. I like the writing under the comics. It's one of those comics that you really get more out of it if you read the attached posts.
I know some people get all hysterical about it ("how dare an author want to expand their universe beyond what's on the fucking page!?") but from my point of view, it's a wonderful aspect of online writing : you can do whatever the fuck you want, so why limit yourself? And for a reader like me, it's like instant gratification : I read the comics and its evocative names and things and I can just go with the flow or look it up, whatever.

It's certainly got that oh-so-serious vibe to the writing, but for me it works.
I'm not sure how to phrase it, but it's like the opposite of Dresden Codak.
DC makes me feel like I'm missing something. And no matter how fucking far back I read, I'm still left with basic questions.
Here with K6BD, it's like I know I'm not supposed to get it all, but a lot of it is evocative enough that it makes me want to know more.

Like when L5R came out, and all you had was the flavour text on those cards, and look what happened! A whole universe sprang forth (not super original, I'll grant you).

That's the feeling I get when I read this comic and its attached writings : possibilties. Makes me want to play.

No, it's not all that far from Dresden Codak. It's not quite the same level of pretentiousness, but at times it gets very close.

I'm writing the RPG using the Powered by the Apocalypse system, since it's really smooth to play.

Here's an example martial arts playsheet for you nerds. It might not make a lot of sense to you if you aren't familiar with the system (and there's some stuff I've written in for the KSBD rpg in particular such as the +internal stat) but you guys may get a kick out of it.

Exquisite Limb

The multiverse is filled with strange and ascetic practices. Some will go to any extreme seeking some terrible source of power. The practitioners of Exquisite Limb styles have found that extreme, and then bound it inside their own body.

Weapon styles - You are proficient with your limb, empty hand, and one weapon of your choice.

Gain: Exquisite Limb

Choose a limb: Hand, Arm, Foot, Leg, Head, Finger
- It cannot be completely destroyed or severed in any way
- It counts as a weapon of your choosing (for example, club, spear, etc, but does not give you proficiency in that weapon), therefore you are always considered armed. You cannot be disarmed.

Choose 1 method
-Replacement with technology
-Runes or tattoos
-Grafted
-Blessed or cursed
-Possessed
-Ritually imbued with power

Choose 1 downside
-Your limb is deteriorating slowly
-Your limb requires constant maintenance or rituals
-Your limb is intelligent
-Your limb is profane or offensive to some group
-Your limb was stolen from a powerful being
-Your limb is a terrible burden (physical, mental or existential)

Choose a condition on which your limb is charged.
This is up to you and the GM to decide (for example, you must feed it blood, you must reload it, you must say secret words to imbue it with power). You can charge your limb a number of times a day equal to (+internal). When your limb is charged, mark ‘charged’ on your character sheet. You cannot ‘save’ charges and must recharge your limb each time you empty the charge.

>So how come I don't get that from K6BD, with its crazy religious text like bullshit writing?
>Perhaps it helps I have no idea who the author is or whether they take themselves as seriously as their writing?
Totally this.
It seems to me the convoluted philosophical, theological stuff is part of the world's ascetic. It takes place in an ancient divine kingdom that has turned into a slum. Demons and angels are all over the place, quintessential nothingness and the greater psycho-gnostic impressions of the number blue are part of everyday life. It's taking something "too deep 4u!" and stretching it out to use as a table cloth for crazy monster fighting adventure.

It's does seem to have "deep" lore but not in the philosophical sense. K6BD gives the sense of a world with layer's and conflicts beyond what we are seeing. The writer has given the impression that world can hold up on it's own even without the story or the audience. The philo/theo stuff is just a really cool dressing for the set and presentation.

I think it's a really neat perspective that should be expanded on more. Taking crazy metaphysical mumbo-jumbo and using them for the sake of FUN and not broody serious business.

Reading K6BD I get the impression of:
>A couple of Tibetan monks drinking beer and watching dragon ball z inside one of their temples
>an elder monk walks in
>he says: "fuckin A"
>he lights up a joint and joins them

That was me you were replying to, and I just had the strangest idea reading your reply : the esoteric mumbo-jumbo in K6BD is a bit like the techno-babble in Star Trek and other sci-fi!
And like techno-babble, some authors will take it too seriously (Dianetics?) and some will wield it for great justice, as long as it doesn't break the rule of cool. That really explains a lot, now I think of it like this.

I haven't touched this webcomic in a long while, so things may have gotten much better since and I admit my opinion may be outdated and stale.

From what I remember though, I feel like the author wanted the setting to be so large, alien, and incomprehensible to the lead character that it makes no sense from her perspective in the narrative. And I'm not saying that is necessarily a bad thing. It makes sense for her to be completely out of her depth, and for everything to kind of blurr together into an incomprehensible nightmare. It would've honestly been stupid to have her (Ally or something?) suddenly come to grips with being dumped in such a hellish landscape without warning and start learning the way the multiverse worked in a day or two.

What I find is detrimental though, is that nothing is ever really explained to us, as the readers, in the comic. Beyond of course "This is a thing here. We won't explain what 'this' entails, or when/why/how it came to be, because it's just a super special thing that happens in this setting just like the other 500 names you saw, and all of the important characters already understand it."

It's just irritating and doesn't feel mysterious at all. As far as I made it, there was no semblance of foreshadowing involved either. It's just rubbing things in your face as a constant barrage of terms with no context and in my opinion simply gives off this really irritating quasi-elitist vibe. Almost as if we the readers don't deserve to be privy to what is going on in the universe. And yes, I read a lot of the early annotations. I just found they were never really enough to give you a feel for just what was going on, it felt like I was getting half-baked teasers. Add that to the fact the novelty of the broader setting wore off very quickly as someone who is vaguely familiar with Malfeas, and it wasn't very satisfying. I wanted to know what was going on with the more unique aspects, but I was constantly kept waiting, slogging through (what were honestly rather boring) plot points that didn't seem to be moving the story forward. It was just "Hello, I am Weird Denizen 1, enjoy your trip to WD2. Plot Important Weird Denizen 1 will show you WD3 as well, and you will bump into PIWD 2 shortly."


So all in all, I suppose I would be interested in playing an RPG set in this universe, but only if a second reading and the content that I missed was enough to make me really love what made the setting unique. It would take quite a lot to want to risk the mechanics being clunky and irritating when I could just get into Malfeas for the same flavor without the mediocre writing I remember from the comic.

The writer of the comic actually rewrote the early parts and added an extra page or two so that there would be more setting exposition and a better explanation of the setting for both the readers and Allison. So you might like it more now.

Speaking for myself, i thought that the fact that everything was an incomprehensible nightmare for us as much as Allison was a selling point. It was interesting to see all this crazy shit going on with no explanation and being forced to put the pieces together. For the most part the world makes sense and stands on its own, even when very little of it is explained, so it gives the narrative a properly frantic pace when things just move on and happen without anyone bothering to stop it all to provide exposition. There was a certain magic to it that i think was compromised when the writter decided to add more exposition. Frankly exposition is boring, and if your world is good enough you really don't need it. See Mad Max Fury Road, there's basically a small opening narration and beyond that you get the world as is, and it works magnificently.

But it sounds you're having the same feeling I get from Dresden Codak, so I can really get where you're coming from.
But as I just said above (>>42521537) I really got the feeling the author weren't taking themselves too seriously about the whole esoteric-babble, so I never really got pissed off about left in the dark (too much). Just curious enough to want to know more and to dream of a RPG setting. And lo! here it comes!

Uh, the angel which was created genderless is developing the identity of a gender.

It isn't a main character, but is fucking boss all the same.

Hardly the same in any context as a transsexual human. That said, the creation so expressed in the setting is vast, there may well be tranny characters in the future. I'm not bothered by that.

The problem this did create though is a lack of stakes. It's something I do have an issue with in my story. When there's no stakes or the reader doesn't understand them, they often get detached from the story, which was a problem I definitely have with the first part.
