Let the dead rest until they are needed again. It is no use to deny it any longer. I have to put Vampires Suck on indefinite hold for now. There’s a number of reasons why, and I’ll try to sum them up fairly quickly.

One thing is the internet as a medium in itself. You’ve seen me contemplate in earlier commentaries how the need for proper updates and a fair amount of content each update makes longer storylines challenging. After my first creative breakdown, I started the Chronicles of coffee and cigarettes, adjusting focus from the setting to those who (ab)use it. These were short gags presented as strips. But I don’t want to make strips. Or gags for that matter. At least not now.

VS evolved into something I find much more interesting creating – a story. Some of you, who play any edition of WoD, realise this as well. It’s not about how shitty or badass your character is in a game mechanic balance perspective. It is the drama that inevitably will surface because everything you touch will turn to shit. Life’s still a fucking joke, but everyone doesn’t get it, and others don’t find it particularly funny.

Continuing on what has been done is troublesome. I could start making proper ‘zines altogether out of VS, but there’s simply too much backstory only available online. And then there’s my conscious decision to direct VS to those already familiar with the Masquerade-setting. A proper shift in medium would require a full re-boot, and probably to drop the universe by White Wolf altogether.

But I assure you that the vampires have not returned into the shadows forever. They are always present, and the great resource material for classical Victorian horror can be applied within a multitude of settings. But VS as it is and has been, will not be for quite a while. I am deeply indebted to you all for giving me these 4 years.

Thank you so much,
I love you.

THE PUBLICUM SPEAKS OUT

that actually demands this stupid idea of a strip a week.. [well if someone is stripping now that is a complete .. mm anyway] .. those that like this, they are subscribers, and will get a ping each time this wonderful place updates.. so who cares, if it comes once a week, once a month.. or comes a couple of fun strips one week and then it goes a couple of month and just one strip comes.. and then a few weeks fly by and a just one fun sentences shows up.. only a week later be followed with a strip each day.. and then silent for a.. well ye get the idea.. each time this page updates its great, wonderful, always looking forward when it happens. But hey, that has to follow your creativity, your flow of mood and spark mate.. don't feel the pressure of those fk heads out there, who says something has to blow out ever damn week... they suck.. ye don't peace mate

part of what makes a webcomic a webcomic must be the hiatuses. every good one i ever read had them and, frankly, they do add a share of tension. you should be doing this for fun, not for "the audience". well, not alone. i mean, if it helps, "the audience" wil probably be here, drooling. but no pressure! i have saliva for ages. anyway, have fun in prague! and that said, what the hell. allergic vampire! gonna see how many freebies i can ask from my GM.

Yeah! For vacations. Also: the antics of the original cast = excellent, however I also enjoy the new cast. Do what you do. Just, please, don't make my poor wittle vampiric bunny mind wait years for updates. I would explode with expectations.

I like the series better as it is now, actually; your Vampire the Masquerade-jokes are way more entertaining than the original plot usually was.
