My plans are somewhat shaky right now. What I have so far is meager, but lots of stuff is flying around. The old guy is a major character, but the interviewer is not. Unimportant characters speak in that shade of green. The gold-haired guy belongs to some evil organization (no idea what it should be), yet I do have a scenario in mind where the team boss or an admin reprimands him on the fact that he refuses to wear the uniform. His eyes is mangled due to some incident, but I'm not quite sure what it is yet. I'm thinking something to do with the main hero. The water drop egg is to bear a fakemon legendary from the sea, related to Kyogre and drawn to Earth by some as-of-yet undetermined connection.
The current strip will be posted first thing on the first page, so that readers who have been reading the strip don't have to search the thread for the latest issue. Of course, all completed issues will be linked to below. Don't expect me, however, to actually keep working on these strips unless somebody is nagging me, because I have a nasty habit of procrastination. If you want your character in the strip, you'll have to acknowledge that I'll be controlling major character development and even have some control over looks. That being said, if you want to submit your character's looks, I'll be making the spritesheet, since I don't want any sprites inconsistent with the design messing up the page.
