Random Encounter is a theoretical Web Comic idea by EdgeOfOblivion. Originally an idea for a game, that idea was eventually scrapped - between competing ideas for other games and a frustration with trying to make appropriate sprites, mostly.

The main reason for this? Almost all of the main characters are monstrous or otherwise non-human in nature. The story begins in a small mountain village of orcs and trolls, save for one adopted inhabitant: Anya, an abandoned Harpy raised by the villagers. When General Rubeus Dolmo, xenophobic leader of the King's army, is alerted by his scouts of the village's existence and a trove of stolen weapons used by the orcs' half-executed excuse for a local militia, he leads a force to assault the village and kill its inhabitants, forcing Anya and two of her friends to flee. With only a mysterious amulet bearing unreadable runes as their hint as to why Dolmo attacked or where to go, the trio sets out into the world to meet their destinies... but it may not be that simple.

As you can see, the story is rather thoroughly finished - that paragraph above is essentially the prologue, leaving you ready to jump into Act 1 Chapter 1. The problem is that story is all I have - I'm not a good enough artist to draw the comic myself. As such... I'm interested in any aspiring comic artists out there who are interested in working on a project and encourage them to contact me. Just... edit this page and leave a note somewhere or something.

A short character list (a full list would be quite long):

  • Anya: A Harpy orphan raised in a village of orcs and trolls. Optimistic, intelligent, and curious, she and her companions are born adventurers... which comes in handy when a lunatic burns their village to the ground. She has an Orphan's Plot Trinket that serves as their only clue of where to go next...

  • Gribbli and Gorbach: A slightly dense Fire Troll and a roughhousing Orc, Anya's childhood friends and companions when they flee their village after Dolmo's attack.
  • General Rubeus Dolmo: An Axe-Crazy Knight Templar who also happens to be the commander of King Oveirbon's military. He's also completely off his rocker... though this doesn't stop him from being extremely deadly in a fight. Sanity not required for combat skill, apparently. Has a sock puppet named Vincent that he talks to, and it talks back.
  • Callisto: A Blue Dragon exiled from Dracon, the dragon homeland.
  • Captain Durthar Hadaver: A dead pirate who still "lives" as a skeleton on his haunted ship, Fated Gold.
  • Alaster Tibegathshka: Hadaver's former first mate, who dabbles in Necromancy and now exists as a zombie. Goes by the name "Tibgawl".

  • Reinheardt D'Timaun: A showoffy Daunlyn swordsman.
  • Dorian: A Minotaur from the city of Labyrinth.
  • Ulrich: King of Dragons and ruler of Dracon.
  • Lugau: A Golem who serves the Dragon Monarchy. Contains the soul of a dead human monk.
... and a whole lot more...
