What is Drow Love?
DrowLove is one of the first RP groups on Tegaki-E. It is also the first linear RP on tegaki, with a running plot currently spanning over 3,000 posts. DrowLove is intentionally kept small and invite-only for reasons of theme and clarity. We also edit and upload our logs, in comic form, to Keenspace. There are currently six people and eight characters involved, ten if you count the animals.

"It is about a group of people (some of them drow) running around and fucking things up."—Yubi

"Drowlove is just one long knife fight."—Shea

"The warriors attempt to bed the dread pirate captain and avoid the fiery steel of that guy without a nose."also Shea

Why is it called "Drow Love"?
It was written on the very first post Bob made that would become the first RP thread: "Drow Love is Tough Love." We just took it because we needed a title. There's no deep meaning here, and it's not really a love story.

What is Drow Love about?
It's a serious D&D fantasy storyline about a ragtag group of adventurers travelling to the Underdark, plus comedy, violence, and a sappy romantic subplot. More "Drow," less "Love." :B

Is there a chat room?
Usually this is posted at the start of every thread, but we use the AIM chatroom "drowlove". It's always nice to hear from readers, so feel free to pop in.

This is a roleplay? Can I join?
No, it's closed. Unfortunately, even if we were looking for more players, we have something of a queue at this point. It'd be really hard to keep the "adventuring party" feel if we were as big as some of the other RP groups on Tegaki. We encourage anyone interested in Tegaki RPs to start their own, or join one of the other groups, though. It's a very different experience from any text or forum RP.

How often are updates?
Seven days a week.

Why did so-and-so character vanish?
The comic originated as a roleplaying thread, and as with RPs anywhere, people are going to enter and leave as they will. Continuity-wise, it bites, but it's worked out OK so far.

The abandoned characters and their players are Belle (chibisilverwings), Calien (Fishbrain), Crash (Musashi), Ember (lacewing), and Qilitha (dogstar). More recently, Fox (Felix's player) has had to leave due to creative differences.

Is the plot planned in advance, or is it all improv?
A combination of both. Unless it was something really awesome and cool and fitting, then it was totally planned.

WTF is wrong with the surroundings?! Things keep moving and changing in the background!
Nothing is wrong. You're imagining things.

What languages are being spoken? Does it correlate with the text colour?
At first that sort of thing wasn't standardized, so the colours changed willy-nilly. It's safe to assume that in the beginning with Arinae, Drea, and Flan they're all talking either Common or Undercommon.

Eventually, this detail gets smoothed out, like so:

There are variations on this, obviously, the most common one being a "rough" looking bubble indicating a different tone of voice. Square Common bubbles and round Undercommon bubbles might indicate a bit of an accent.

Are those things on Pyras' neck permanent?
No, she can take them off, but they're easier to draw if you make them look permanent.

How many damn belts does Flan have?
17, I think. How he has the patience to dress himself, I will never know.


Does he need to ingest it?
