Webcomic: Rumors of War
In the wake of the War of Thessalonian Independence, also known as the Third Trojan War, a magical society struggles to right itself as it sinks into a period of decline. The palatial estates of the bronze age demigods are abandoned as a people return to a lifestyle from a simpler time while fleeing the onslaught of iron age pirates, slavers, and marauders.

Rumors of War is a Sprite Comic that follows the events surrounding a group of heroes in a City of Adventure, and falls somewhere between an Alternate History and a Historical Fantasy. The comic has been on hiatus since July 2011, and the full archives can be found Its story is episodic in nature, and at present spans some 500 pages across 5 story arcs.

Probably best described as a a Situation Dramedy, or perhaps a Forensic Drama with magic (in mythical Greece!).

The pages themselves are formatted to resemble screen caps from an SNES-era video game, and so the action is carried by questions, questions, mysteries, talking, questions, questions, questions, and more questions.
