In time, the boldest adventurers gathered their courage and descended into the darkness below in search of power and glory. They found other things waiting there for them as well. Few are those who enter the Delve and return. Fewer still are those who return with anything worth showing for their troubles.
Nevertheless, an entire industry has sprung up around sending hapless fools down into the Delve, filled with dreams of gold and loot. Getting into the Delve is simply a matter of completing a few safety courses and passing a verbal exam (the written exam was discontinued after overwhelming complaints from the ‘Fiters’ guild).

|Comic: Shot from the hip|
|Shot From the Hip was born as it lives - spontaneously. It was inspired by old campfire stories that we told as a kid, where one person tells one part of the story, and then the next person picks up where they left off, and so on. After a few rounds, the story turns into something completely unrelated to what the first person was going for, but is still totally awesome. So that\'s what we decided we should do with a comic. Tams and I each created two(ish) characters to use in our world, and we are bound by honor to not reveal to each other what\'s going to happen next in the story. Every time I draw a page of the comic, Tams has no idea what I\'m going to draw, and vice versa.
Not only is this a fun project to do, but it\'s also a great tool for us to explore and develop our comic-drawing skills. Without having to worry about scripting and plots and whatnot, we can focus strictly on our art and technique, which is a unique sort of thing here. Also, as the creators, we get just as much excitement about seeing the next page as anyone else. Because neither of us knows what\'s going to happen next, we\'re both reading and contributing to the story as it happens.
In other words, it\'s AWESOME. Cause I get to READ it and DRAW it. YEAH!!

|"There are three schools of magic. Philosophy, Science, and Engineering."
- Paraphrasing Robert A. Heinlein (1980)
Prodigy engineer Penny Copper works in a repair shop haphazardly run out of an old man's house. Rick Burning Sky was a prolific robotics expert who left behind his former life to fix broken laptops. An engineer and sorcerer, Symbol works with mechanical golems to defend and support the city. Or - he used to.
