The world this comic is set in is tentatively known as Aeorn (in
The main storyline is currently based in Torren, a large continent
that is mainly made up of terrestrial anthromorphs. Humans and
other species also live in the world but tend to stick to their
respective realms - those you will learn more of as time goes
The world is gradually evolving over time from a generic Fantasy
world with elves, dwarves and similar, to a world with its own
linguistics and traditions - snippets will appear on site as they
appear in the comic or occur to me - these will vary from costume
to language, deities and traditions. The words Elf and Dwarf
will gradually be phased out all together but for the one occassional
biggoted character that wanders through the script (Anders the
Persian Cat - see inn of green silences arc)
As with most medieval and semi such worlds - wars and petty skirmishes
abound, plots seeth, and your wet clothes are always damp in the
creases when you try to dry them out by the fire (that or they
get slightly charred - Like my boots...)
How did it all begin:
The concept for Gone Astray began with, and continues to
be inspired by various roleplay groups that I have been
involved with in the past with the occassional bad pun I can't resist.
Originally the main characters were drawn in a picture as a birthday
present for a friend in the group, each of the individuals loosely
based around the personalities of our own characters - that picture
should be found in the gallery but isn't - I'll have to rescan it.
The characters evolved further into a series of skits and pun
sketches that mainly revolving around the suicidal paladin who
was a part of the RP group at the time. After collecting a large
swathe of different sketches and ideas around the seven characters
I decided that they deserved a strip and here is the ongoing product.
The realms travelled here are strictly from my own imagination,
but as my mind is crammed full of many sci-fi and fantasy fictions
there may be some familiar places or parodies on existing worlds.
I'll create a map for the interested as I get time and experience
in such matters (and invent a few more locations).
