I’ve been reading Nahast from the start and have happily followed it through thick and thin. The thin would be those months where author Alejandro Melchor gets caught up in other commissioned works.
Nahast was born back when Alejandro was busy working on a demanding d20 D&D 3.0 schedule producing supplements for Mongoose Publishing. It popped onto my radar because I’d read a lot of Alejandro’s work and liked the idea of a “d20 compatible” comic. The idea, I think, was that the fantasy comic would grow to provide the backdrop for a valid d20 campaign world.
Of course; anything could happen and we might yet see a Nahast RPG.
The premise is beautifully simple. An impressive warrior woman comes to the city in order to start an academy and teach a bunch of new female students the arts and craft of the sword.
This automatically gives the comic a long cast list. So far Nahast has kept its focus and not been pulled off in too many directions. We’re still just pulling back the curtain to see what possible obstacle awaits for our good looking heroes.
Nahast has travelled around a number of webhosts in its time on line. Currently it’s at Spiderforest. It doesn’t have a picture embedded RSS feed but I sign up just to know when I should go back and visit the site.
