NEWS & UPDATES

2017/01/18 - (Re)launch!

-----------------------------------------
This page has a bit of an obscure easter egg which felt right at the time I put this together, so I went for it. If it looks unfamiliar, try searching for Megaman Legends "Adventure Tour".

So Happy New Year again everyone! Time to kick off the new year after a long break with the second-half of Chapter 4!



2016/12/28 - It always stems from the same factor: Motive

-----------------------------------------
One of the elements which I found a little underwhelming about the original game was the complete lack of mention of the Mother Lode (or Great Legacy) despite being introduced right at the opening crawl (this applies to all versions of the game too, so it wasn't some dub-induced addition). Even though there is mention of undiscovered treasure on the island according to the current scene in the game which this page is following, it felt like an afterthought as it was glanced over so quickly in the conversation. As for this adaptation, their crash landing and seemingly accidental discovery of this island has definitely gotten Rock and Roll's attention.

So this will be the last update of this year! I would be taking at least a 2-week break before the second half of Chapter 4 continues. See you all in 2017!



2016/12/21 - An offer that can't be refused

-----------------------------------------
Even with the lack of a clearly established global order, the life of an adventurer/Digouter must be terrible. Unless you or your group has made a name for themselves, you're treated as outsiders at best and thieves or even air pirates at worst on first sight. Not to mention unless you're that good at the job, your funds are basically in the red all the time (keep in mind that this is even without a mechanic who consumes copious amounts of funding on R&D and maintenance).

This is the week before the holidays begin, but one more page coming next week! So just for the weekends: Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!



2016/12/14 - This isn't Philantropy

-----------------------------------------
One of the biggest criticisms I give about Roll is that in the game she is more or less presented as a character that revolves completely around Rock, and isn't given much development of her own standing besides being Rock's partner. On the other hand, this can be sort of handwaved by the fact that the storylines focused on Rock and his destiny (for lack of a better word), and partly being the sort-of norm for video games at the time (except not really, as many SNES/SFC games have proven).

At any rate, given Roll's presumed pragmatism and responsibility for family expenses, I want to take this chance in this comic to give her some focus and driving motive as her own character beyond a cute face (as important as it is!).

Anyway! Homepage updates!
First, a big thanks to MLT, Space Apollo, and Buster Cannon from the MMLS forums for recommending some tweaks to the comic browser, and for helping me to troubleshoot some ongoing bugs with the mobile comic browser issues (mainly on Chrome) over the weekend!

Also in other holiday news, RMDL would be continuing its weekly schedule throughout the rest of December! It's the season!



2016/12/07 - Just like a flowchart

-----------------------------------------
Nothing seems to get gramps down, I believe. Maybe except for his overprotectiveness of his family members.

Coming back to drawing Amelia and Roll after some time, I was actually a bit curious how they would turn out having not drawn them directly for quite some time. What do you readers think?
