Dude the Great – Title

NAV is on break. It will return June 17th.


And thus starts the Dude short story. This will run Mon-Fri until June 17th. I hope you'll enjoy it!

EDIT: Also, the April Hangout for NPC+10 will be tomorrow (April 26th). Check here for details and RSVP. Thanks!


As for the results of Annie's polling, quite a few figured out they can vote multiple times and it was quite amusing seeing the two main camps (remembering sky vs random glitching) go at each other. Luckily, it was easy to get rid of all the duplicate voting, so here are the more unbiased results:

A more color diverse pie chart.

A more diverse color pie chart.

Ironically, the two camps ended up neck to neck, with remembering sky winning by a handful of votes. However, since the win was so close, I think I shall try to pull off doing both ideas at the same time. I already have a good idea of how to do it and I think it will turn out really funny. But it's going to be a long while before I focus on Annie again. Must get Reality pages done! I'm almost up to five pages done so far. Yay!

There were also quite a few awesome ideas people gave in the 'other' option. Here are a few of my favorites:

Thanks everyone for participating!

That is one really badly designed pie chart. (I’m not really criticizing, as I already know what the outcome is, I’m just really making a statement) I hate pie charts with the key represented by colour coding as a rule. I have some degree of colour blindness, so many shades kind of blend together, and there are only so many colours which really stand out from each other. However, with this particular pie chart, not only does it have a colour code key, but all those colours are varying shades of blue (yes, they could be in the pink/purple range… Read more »

I’m not colorblind and it was still difficult to me, the shades of blue really are too close. Luckily the results are in clockwise order, so they can be read as a list!


It still doesn’t help that you have to figure out where the chart STARTS. I only figured it out because I knew who won from the comment and could therefore assign the highest percentage to the winning answer. However, reverse-engineering the pie chart is definitely not the goal.


Wen are we going to find out wat happend to the atmosfeer? Becouse I hav sum theerees.


Dude the Great :D, how modest.
I like his hat, and I hope the entire series is white-on-black.

Did took me a while to figure out he is standing on a peak, and not in shallow flowing water.

I voted for the sky, but that was just a pseudo-empathetic impuls (P-thetic), spur of the moment. I’m sorry now. Annie shouldn’t get any hand-outs. Obviously she hasn’t suffered enough and this is no time for a break. And just to make it complete: When she seems to be coming to terms with her new life and little bright spots start to appear she will by random chance get a choice that will effect Kleya quite profoundly. In the minute before she makes that choice she will find out that the cause/source of the ruination of her family/home/world is (probably)… Read more »

There is no such thing as “Enough suffering” for characters. You can ALWAYS make them suffer more.


I’m seeing a trend in the results. The two most popular options and several of the play up her misfortune. The difference is that the one about the sky is more tragic and the one about the glitch is more comedic.


D***it. I’m going to go laugh hard for a while now, because “Dude the Great” is a stick figure. And this reminded me of “Is it supposed to be stick dudes?” from Dot Dot Dot. (And of course the soundboard where you can just have it go “Stick dudes!” over and over and over….XD)

Ah yes….good times. I might just go watch that again.
(Stick dudes!)


I must say of the “Other” options, I really like the one “It was the last color she saw before everyone died.” It’s a rather interesting one, and I like it.
I also like the Blue-Yellow Colorblind one. These two more for just interest, than anything.


Yay! Aneeka picked my ‘other’ response. Sorry it was too logical for the rest of you.
