Dreambound Thread

Welcome to the Dreambound thread, where I'm going to be posting all of the episodes I make here. This comic used to be called Cloud's Forum Adventures, but I changed its name when its namesake grew too inactive for it to be worth it to remain open. You may remember a series about the protagonists fighting an evil army called the Nightmare Legion; that's still a thing. I was working really hard on that saga, and I made so many chapters that I grew tired of the storyline and was burnt out for around a month. But now, I'm back, but I'm remaking some of the older episodes, but with some added panels and most of all, new lore. The name Dreambound comes from a few things - one, it's a reference to my favorite game of all time (which is probably easy to guess), and second, since a lot of the comic's plot revolves around psychological powers, possession, and such, I decided to give the comic a much more fitting and "magnetic" name. Its old name didn't really detail anything that was going on in the plot, and I hope that this new name will fix that.

But that's not all I've changed. I have listened to people's feedback and have spent the past two months refining my drawing ability. Characters are now more expressive, and I've practiced drawing scenes with more movement. As such, characters will feel more alive rather than just static images. We're going to have a steam group pretty soon which will post updates on the release of new episodes, and you can also receive a Dreambound Newsletter by PMing me. So with all of that said, let's get right to it: the episodes. Or, in this case, the episode, because it's the only one I've released so far. But don't worry, there's more to come.

Motivation is a weird thing. It's what drives me to create new episodes, but it's not necessarily reliable. Comments and views, but especially comments, help to up the motivation. Basically, if you're a fan of the series but there haven't been many new episodes lately, it's likely because I'm lacking motivation. So if you want to see some new episodes, post here. If you haven't noticed from the other two locked and closed threads, I teeter between making the series and not making the series due to this. Other than that though, I have nothing to say except enjoy. As always if you have questions, comments, or whatever, post them here and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.

I'm also bringing back CFA Subscriptions. They don't cost anything at all this time, though. All you have to do is PM me saying you want to subscribe, and I'll then add you to a list. Each Sunday, you'll receive a short Dreambound newsletter with the newest episode, and maybe some other cool stuff too. I'm not sure if I'm going to make a list of subscribers public or not, but yeah. If you're interested, please PM me.

Also, the reason I double posted here is because eventually the OP is going to get too long to fit into one post.

Good to see that there's still some interest still floating around here despite the cancellation business. There was actually a chapter that came before the episode I've already posted, but I'm remaking it because...its speech bubbles were square, rather than oval. Yeah. So that's coming. Basically, Chapter 1 (the current episode will be changed to Chapter 2) and Chapter 3 will be coming out by next Monday. I may also add an extra panel to Chapter 2.

Good to see this back once again! I think the name change certainly wasn't a bad choice, I liked CFA as a name but Dreambound sounds cool as well. The first chapter was made really well, too, and I quite like it. Good job on this so far!

So I've been very busy lately, with hardly any time to attend to DreamBound. Today was the final nail in the coffin, as my flash drive broke, and with it went all of my schoolwork, art, forum images, and DreamBound episodes, character drawings, concepts, scripts, and pre-drawn assets I used in every comic episode. As such, the series is sadly going to be put onto hiatus until I can muster up the motivation to recover all of this, or until the flash drive's fixed. However I don't want this thread locked just yet, as I'm still seeing if I can somehow attach the broken USB thing into the base of the flash drive.

I'm still working on this. Just be patient and something will come. Eventually. For now, here's a desktop background I drew.

It's over. My flash drive broke, all episodes lost. There's no longer any interest in this comic, so I will no longer waste my time by making it. Bye.

Um that's debatable

Well that was dramatic. Maybe you should reconsider that decision? I like your comics at least :S

I'm going to be finishing what I started. DreamBound will be returning soon. The plot will be a heavily revamped Nightmare Legion saga. Except this time around, two unknown voices have began telepathically communicating with Cloud, who cannot identify the voices. One voice tells him to do nothing but good things, and the other voice tells him to murder and do generally bad things. It's going to be up to you guys to decide which voice becomes more prevalent.
