Dungeons of Sunnydale is an Interactive Comic written by tiresiasArchivist and later by Crono30067. Based off of games such as Rogue, DnD, and others, it tells the story of 0001, a beardless dwarf roguenote ., as he travels through a dungeon.
Originally written by tiresiasArchivist as a side project, it was later abandoned, whereupon it was picked up by Crono30067 in FANFICTION MODE, and was soon elevated to canon. Also, now the original author is drawing fanart.
After it ended, some people started working on making it into a real game.
The comic features examples of:
- Alternate Self: 0001 has a total of four other selves (from 0002 to 0005), while Amelia has at least 2.
- Alternate Universe: There are a ton of these. A list of them can be found here.
- Cerebus Syndrome: Kinda.
- Chekhov's Gun: The second save point.
- Genie!Karkata's last wish.
- Chekhov's Gunman: Drizzle Fo' Shizzle the Drow Pimp.
- Creative Closing Credits: The ending credits feature a count of how many times each user posted in the forum thread, as well as some users getting achievements. The credits end with The Drow Pimp looking over Hexane's Derse.
- Deadpan Snarker: Karkata. Also, 0003.
- Fantasy Character Classes: Some of the characters in Sunnydale have more standard classes, like Rogue and Magic Hero, but then you have classes like Bearserker and Professional Map Grabber.
- Five-Man Band: 0001 is the leader, 0003 is the lancer, Amelia is the smart guy, Amoria is the big guy, and Karkata is the chick.
