Webcomic: The Burned
A traveler and volunteer at many orphanages around the Nameless World, Hunter is a nice guy who just wants to do his best to help who he can. After a near-death experience as a child, Hunter was left with a Burn, not through fire, but given to him by the god Pyro. The burn has granted Hunter power over shadows, and has given him a stronger ability to help those in need.One day, a terrible mistake marks the beginning of the biggest event in the history of the Nameless World. Orphiritus, a minor god and assistant to the god of the forge, Takeo, accidentally drops fifteen powerful weapons from the god's realm, Tengoku, into the place now known as the Plains of Fire. The fifteen sacred weapons hold within them incredible powers that, in the hands of one of The Burned, could boost their powers to the levels of the gods. Many burned, originally kind people, have become corrupted at the idea of holding such power, and have begun to seek out the sacred weapons in hopes of ruling the world.Not knowing what would come of his death, Pyro, creator of the Nameless World, enlists Hunter's help in collecting the fifteen sacred weapons. With the assistance of gods Pyro, Takeo, Manami, Shizen, and Shibou, along with friends he meets along his journey, Hunter attempts to collect and return all fifteen sacred weapons before the world falls into chaos.The Burned is a fantasy webcomic created by Hunter Kirizaki, drawn by Sentia Shinou and colored by Sarall.The creators lost interest, and have cancelled the comic.
