The Cast

Joel, Matt, Andy and Craig are the founders of the Doomed Legion gaming club. In high school there was a need for a gaming club with a focus on miniatures and wargaming, so they filled that niche. Andrew stumbled upon their group and quickly inserted himself into their circle. Erin happened upon the group in a similar way, but got her gamer stripes by showing off her sewing and building skills. Magda is Andrew’s sister, and initially attended their game events because Andrew needed someone with a car, but she eventually became part of the group. Nina is a long-time friend of all the guys, a hard-core science geek and gamer, but unfortunately she doesn’t show up that often because she always lives somewhere else. Akemi is a ninja, and world-traveler, every now and then, she’s also a penguin. Jim is Andrew’s friend, also a hard-core science guy and he is very serious about his roleplaying. Amy, Matt’s wife sometimes shows up, and some characters come and go, as is common in life.

Questions

Q: Is this based on real life? “I heard so-and-so say that last week, this must all be true!”
A: This comic is mostly fictionalized. All the people shown here are based on real people, and while many real things are chronicled here, they are exaggerated and made larger-than-life for your enjoyment.

Q: What is this “doomed legion”?
A: The Doomed Legion is a gaming club based in California, we are a group of 20-somethings who spend much of our free time playing games and brainstorming new adventures, ideas and shenanigans.

Q: How do I buy a print/get pricing/request something else from you?
A: Don’t be shy, email me, feel free to negotiate, the worst that can happen is I’ll say ‘no.’ I may post a link to allow people to buy specific things, but right now it’s by request only.

Q: Where is your merchandise? I want a book/cards/games/poster/stickers!
A: Look, I only have two hands and three jobs, I have plans but no feedback yet, so email me what exactly you’d buy and I’ll try to have it made.

Q: I heard there was something called Doomed Legion Games, what is that about? Did you run something at a convention?
A: Doomed Legion Games is a company Joel started. Currently there are some original games for sale on the DLG site, we also sometimes run these games at various conventions in California.

Q: What is with those glasses?
A: This is metaphor. If you don’t get it, don’t worry about it.

Q: Are you making fun of aspergers/epilepsy/ADD/OCD?
A: No, some of our group have these issues, mostly mild, and sometimes it’s just how things are. If we can’t laugh at ourselves, what’s the point?
