The comic was hosted on drunkduck up until 2012, at which point it moved to Mangamagazine, also known as Inkblazers, and updated there at a somewhat regular pace until the author abandoned the comic in favor of other projects.note
The comic then remained sitting undisturbed within Mangamagazine for about a year or so until, in early 2015, the site itself went down for good, taking hundreds of webcomics with it as a result.
Fortunately, however, a mysterious fan who goes on by the name of "Sanctaphrax" on the Giant in the Playground forums has saved all the 138 pages in a dropbox file. You can find a link to it either on the original thread or here on Tv Tropes.
Tropes found in this webcomic include:
- Big Eater: Our protagonist, in typical manga style. Justifed by near starvation, so only time will tell if this a habit.
- Conservation of Ninjutsu: In the second chapter. After a quick fight, Kentucky's Dragon revealed himself.
- Exact Words: Alive is not unharmed.
- Functional Magic: Thaumaturgy, as one might expect. Seems to be theurgy so far, but there hasn't really been enough to be sure. Seems to work by poker rules...
- Possibly more like (Elemental) Device Magic, with elements of Rule magic - The cards could be argued to be simple devices used in rituals.
- Gratuitous Latin: The protagonist's name is "I don't know my own name" in Latin!
- Mind Rape: An example of forbidden Psychosophy.
- Power at a Price: None of the listed subtropes fit, but Thaumacard creation (and therefor purchase) is expensive!
- Sue Donym: Only time will tell, but it's been theorized that Nomen Nescio is pulling a Ulysses on us.
- The Gambler: Sophy uses cards to manipulate the elements, so every sopher has a trace of the gambler in their battle style.
- The Goggles Do Nothing
- This Cannot Be!: The first major fight is quickly ended from the unknown hero's skills, and the first villain says "Impossible" to pronounce his belief of the other's skills. Not a pure example, as the villain survives (So far).
- Whatevermancy: Averted. Magic uses "sophy" (phyrosophy, etc) instead.
- The Wild West: Vagas is this, but themeparked and fantasy. If the giant cacti in the background didn't tip you off, the fact that pretty much everybody in town wears a cowboy hat probably will.
