Frequently Asked Questions
Why an Angband webcomic?
For a few reasons. Firstly, I like and enjoy Angband and have been playing it for some years now. Secondly, I really enjoyed the first (and now sadly defunct) Angband comic, and was inspired to make my own in a similar style.
Who are you?
I'm me. Who are you? Though more seriously, I'm Roger Barnett. For more details, please send me a postcard. Or a bunch of flowers. Or some chocolate. Or a puppy. No... not a puppy actually, I'm not hungry.
Are you going to lose interest after a few strips of this comic?
Hopefully not. I've built a large backlog of strips, so that even if I don't draw a strip for months, there'll still be fresh comics appearing as regular as clockwork. If I do decide to stop the comic, I promise you a proper ending.
When do you update?
3 days a week - Monday, Wednesday, Friday. A new strip should appear at midnight-1am (GMT) on each of those days. I've had to drop down to 3 days a week due to pressures of impending thesis.
Can I link to you?
By all means, and with my blessing. If your own site is interesting and relevant enough, you might even get a link back
Didn't that comic on that date violate the rules of Angband?
I'm being rather loose with some of the Angband 'physics' - though I'm mostly following what happens in the game, at other times I'll take liberties.
Guest comics? Fan art?
Are you serious? If someone is insane enough to make them, I'll put them up. Hell, I might not even be sarcastic! I'd be flattered though :-)
Who hosts the comic?
That would be Retrosnub, a thoroughly nice company.
How can I contact you?
You can e-mail me. firstname.lastname@example.org is a good place to start. If you put "Angband" in the subject line, it's less likely to be slaughtered by spam filters. Or, you can chat to me on IRC. I'm found at #angband on irc.worldirc.org, under the name Calamarain.
