Because sometimes, you feel the urge to just totally confuse anybody that might walk in without context

and if I hear one Skyrim joke you're all fired

I didn't think of Skyrim until you mentioned it.

He's got the equivalent of a really slow bullet in his knee.
Starcat5 20th Jul 2013, 4:23 PM edit delete reply
Starcat5
What? When did Shrapnel get married? ;p

Taking "a bullet to the knee" is the Scandinavian equivalent to "The Ball and Chain" over here in the US. And considering that Skyrim is based heavily off of Scandinavian influences, that means nearly every single guard the more Chaotic Evil players killed off in that game left behind a widow and who knows how many children.
fwtrump 21st Jul 2013, 1:25 PM edit delete reply
No no, I killed the widows as well. The kids on the other hand I decide to merely torture rather than get a mod to fix... Must leave some alive for the next generation of genocide. What? They are calling me the dragon-born? You expect me to side with the non-dragons?

Ow. Oooooow. I know Shrapnel's a robot n' all and probably can't feel his leg being ripped to bits but the idea is cringeworthy.

So, Go and the kart were already shrunk and now the kart is returning to normal size?

Or it's going to shrink now, shrinking Shrapnel with it?

Man! When is the next update? XD
Tobias7 17th Jul 2013, 10:29 AM edit delete reply
I get it now :) I was thinking Go was going to use the lightning on Shrapnel, but it is the reverse. He shrunk himself, which is why Go looks weird in Panel 4 and Shrapnel looks like a giant in Panel 3. Now it's wearing off and Shrapnel has...shrapnel...in his knee that's going to get really big.

what I would actually like to see is that wall of text without Go in front of it, there are some interesting things there :)
also, love this idea, just love it :D terrific job Morg!
model S 18th Jul 2013, 3:16 AM edit delete reply
so would I. I want to see the entire thing, no panel borders or go or computer blocking it. because I bet most if not all of it is accurate to some degree and that just sounds fun.

Hey, someone remembers the feather powerup from Super Mario Kart. Neat.
5007 18th Jul 2013, 9:06 PM edit delete reply
While not a defensive item, I found the feather to be quite useful in dodging attacks (by hopping over walls) or in accessing the shortcuts.

I wish they'd bring it back.
BlueMario 18th Jul 2013, 10:03 AM edit delete reply
Hey morg? Is there any chance we could get the whole text of what's in the background of panel 1? I want it for reasons.
Morgenstern 21st Jul 2013, 6:50 AM edit delete reply
Morgenstern
Sadly I lost the original text when I rasterized the layer, because I am a Photoshop wizard

Alot of it was diced up half-statements anyway, though
5007 18th Jul 2013, 8:58 PM edit delete reply
If Shrapnel were in an argument...
*puts on shades*
... he wouldn't have a leg to stand on!



YEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!
Tobias7 18th Jul 2013, 9:21 PM edit delete reply
Like everyone else I was expecting Go to use items directly, but it just occurred to me that the wall of text explains that wouldn't be as easy as you'd think. For example, the Star isn't a real Star, it signals something to the other karts.

Well...I'll grant you that it's a novel use of power-ups to win a fight, surely there were more effective things he could have used?
Shrapnel may be minus a leg now, but you can bet that won't stop him.

Yeah, but I bet a punch to face of a legless automaton afterwards would do something.
Scootaloo 21st Jul 2013, 10:38 AM edit delete reply

I initially thought that the kart was going to shrink *after* it landed in his leg, thus shrinking Shrapnel as well. This theory was provided by the fact that I thought Go was landing far off in the distance in the 4th panel. It's a little hard to tell that he was actually shrunken because of the perspective of the road.
Tobias7 21st Jul 2013, 8:05 PM edit delete reply
I thought that too, I first thought that the noises at the end were the lightning striking Shrapnel. Somehow though I like this version better :)
Guest 21st Jul 2013, 4:12 PM edit delete reply
I am incredibly glad you're still working on this comic, Morgenstern, after all the trouble and hardship. The story is an incredible amount of fun and fuckin' well written. And your art suits it best from all the artists we've seen so far. Keep up the great work.

Remember Shrapnel (King BB) fights are ridiculous and this one is supposed to be crazier than the first, So I'm sure its gonna be a visual masterpiece
the_unchosen_one 22nd Jul 2013, 8:34 PM edit delete reply
Its been mentioned by one person that being down a leg won't stop Shrapnel. I feel the need to remind everyone:
Shrapnel piledrives people off cliffs
Shrapnel can be hit by a truck
Shrapnel can self-destruct, be knocked to only a head, and (with help) be revived
Shrapnel is able to fight and be a gentlemen at the same time

Im fairly certain, he'll keep fighting without his leg. Like the Black Knight from Monty Python and the Holy Grail

Shrapnel is basically this universe's Wolverine. He tears through your attempts to stop him, and if you manage to, he recovers and comes right back for more. Although, he is much more gentlemanly. And that makes him the ultimate villain.

Wait I just thought of something: what if Go is using several items at once? First the lightning will wear off, then a second item will take effect (like the Mega Mushroom, perhaps?)

Shrapnel could be in big trouble!

Yay, thanks for emailing me those pics! And I bet you could pull off a Martello cosplay, it doesn't have to be fancy, my Go outfit sure isn't. You could do Martello from this arc pretty easily, just get some cargo pants, a black t-shirt, tape/glue/paint the swoopula on it, and get a nice koopa hat. I'd go with the koopa hat from another arc though to be a bit more Martello-y

Bamboos have slightly different names in the US. Our versiob of the fun went off the market years ago. Now we have the bamboo splash, which is $80 usd and comes with art rage studio, the bamboo connect which is the same hardware and price but comes with sketchbook software (art rage is better) and the bamboo capture which I $00, has four customizable shortcut buttons on the board, pen AND touch input (use your fingers for zooming and panning, you can disable this whenever you want) and the software is Photoshop Elements 8.

I own a capture for work and portability while I have a cintiq 12wx for home.

Anti-wacom hipsters have found a liking to the monoprice tablet. Don't know the specifics, but its $50 and said to be pretty decent.

The last scanner I bought was a Canon canoscan for $50 but that was 11 years ago and it still works.

you know Morg, if you don't actually WANT to do this comic anymore, you should tell us. Not wanting to draw can be solved by finding another artist, but if you don't want to do the entire comic anymore than that's it. Obviously your devoted followers waiting for your next post are not enough to motivate you to draw a comic once a friggin' month.
Honestly, there are a lot of people here waiting for SOMETHING. At this point, just a small drawing about a game you're playing, a blog post about further planning, ANYTHING.

Personally I wouldn't mind it if you just spoiled the entire story and everything you were planning, but I doubt anyone here would agree with me on that point.

I agree, though I do think whether or not you spoil it should be up to you and not just a consequence of quitting the comic. On the other hand, if you still WANT to do the comic and plan to go to a VGCats schedule I think you should tell us. Seems to me like this comic is heading either for VGCats schedule or ending though, unless Cammiluna feels up to it as she's the only one of us capable to do the drawing. Your decision Morg, but I think if you do choose the VGCats schedule, we're already the most patient fanbase on the internet.

And I think thegreatandmightone is right Morg, if you decide to continue it as a VGCats schedule, or even if you decide to end it, maybe we could change Mushroom Go into more of a community. A style other than Comic and comments, but a more dynamic style where you and we could post about life, it's not the comic, it's the incredible community people have. Not the chatango thing which was cool, but maybe we could move to another site that's more community oriented. I love even hearing about what games you are playing to be honest, but Mushroom Go without Morg is worse than Mushroom Go without Go :P

I don't mind the VGCats schedule, and I also happen to like how convenient it is that our community is formed in the comments section. (In fact, this is quite possibly the longest chat section we've ever had considering that we're now in the white space of this page.) In my experience, though, forums tend to be confusing, and more often than not, things tend to be lost in the tide of people that comment endlessly over time, so I really like the way how our comments are linear and chronological. Not to mention, it's easier to spot Morg when he's down in the comments section anyway.

Since this is gonna be a community-based thing now, might as well try and contribute instead of telling what I think is wrong.
So everyone interested in the adventure thingy should reply to this with their thoughts and what kind of race they want the main character to be. Also gender.

I wanted to quit like, a year ago and everyone told me I couldn't

I don't want to draw, ever. Like, at all. I can't stand it. I can't just "find" an artist, either. They do not fall out of the sky with all talent intact, decide to draw for free and keep a consistent schedule and never leave. I tried paying Obfuscobble and I couldn't even keep him around. If nobody draws it the comic's dead in the water, and I said that a year ago when I also offered to diverge the plot. Everybody was like "no, no, give it time, maybe things will get better."

Spoilers: they didn't

If you guys want updates about my vidya games or what I think about cats or whatever then great, I'll set up a Tumblr and we'll have a hootin' good time. If you're waiting for updates about the comic you're going to be waiting for a long time, possibly forever. I said all that a year ago, too. I could get screencaps if we want to see me be a total ass about this. Thedandmom's brief foray into the artwork didn't suddenly reinvigorate my urge to draw, though it did nudge me to force out a few more to keep from looking like a total jackass (i.e. quitting, unquitting, and then quitting again a month later). As it stands I'm still in I just want to be done mode because nobody wants to or has time to draw this, including me. As much as I love the plot and would love to continue it there's physically no way to make it work and I've said all this before, several times I think

If people want me to spoil the story then great, I'll do it. I don't care. I wanted to do it a year ago and everybody said no. If you want some sort of community thing then I don't know what to tell you; I'm not much of a forum running sort of guy. I wouldn't know where to start.

Funny thing is, I kind of know where you're coming from. In my circle of friends, I am (by default) a DM for D&D, for all intents and purposes in that I have a decent grasp of the rules and make for a decent actor.

It's draining. Anytime I get a few sessions into a campaign, I suddenly don't want to do it anymore. I want to be a player character, but no one else wants to learn how to DM. Never. I love the stories I build up for the campaigns, but it's just something I can't do because the PCs are exhausting to be around and creating encounters and preparing to improv for what they mess up gets tedious.

So I understand where you're coming from. And if quitting will help put your mind to rest on it, please do it. I love Mushroom Go, by all means, it's the reason I have great friends like Cammiluna and Amaaré now, and it was one of my top favorite webcomics. But it's entirely unfair to force you to do something that makes you miserable. If Mushroom Go has to continue, I want it to be because you love doing it as much as we love reading it.

However, if a person's tumblr is linked t their twitter, every tumblr post gets tweeted, and that's how I follow my friends posts. Tumblr in that case is sorta used like an extended twitter for when 140 characters isn't enough.

In my opinion, MuGo having to end? Perfectly understandable. I was one of the people who, while upset, was in support of Morg quitting when he said he needed to the first time around.

But declaring it dead? No.
1- MuGo will never die; that's what the internet is for: keeping things alive after they end

2- Morg, I still say don't spoil it. On the severe off chance that someone ends up showing up again, if you had spoiled it, they wouldn't be able to sneak anything in like you like to do. Everyone would know where to look.

3- WHATEVER you DO decide to do, Morg, good luck with it. End MuGo if you need to, which I believe you do. Just don't say it's DEAD, or spoil it.

I do vote for spoilers. I know that you had some great stuff in store for us, and I don't want to live with the knowledge that I'll never get to know it.
Just a month ago, I had a friend spoil Bioshock infinite for me because I knew I was never going to play it. BEST DECISION EVER. Just knowing of the genius that was written there, without even experiencing it myself, was already a huge addition to my, well honestly, life.
I feel the same about MuGo. If I'm never going to experience everything at any pace, just spoil spoil spoil away.

If there are people who don't want the spoilers, just post them somewhere else.

Morg, thanks for your reaction. Also thanks for keeping up with all our bullshit/motivation for all this time.
I got the fact that you hated drawing the first time, that was why I was so surprised as to why you took up drawing again either way.

I can't see from the eyes of someone who doesn't want this spoiled. So I won't try. I just want this hole filled.

I'll try to help you see from the eyes of someone who doesn't want it spoiled (though if Morg wants to, it's up to him). What if 10 years from now, Morg has a good job with enough money to go out and hire real illustrators and decides it's time to do it? Or what if he decides to write a story and wants to use one of those ideas directly? It would be easier for him if those ideas aren't out there anywhere. So why I don't want it spoiled isn't really for Mushroom Go, but for future Morg. I also was way more against it a year ago, I think before it would have been a rash decision but he's had enough time to think about it.

On the other hand, perhaps closure would be better for Morg. It's really up to him, and yeah maybe we did go a little overboard a year ago, sorry Morg.

If you need to stop drawing the comic, that's fine. Don't keep doing something you don't want to do.

But maybe see if you can find someone else to run it before you spoil it, perhaps? Cammiluna comes to mind, but if she's too busy or whatever..

Yeah, you should ask Cammiluna first, she's got the talent and the desire, if she doesn't have the time or energy that's fine but if she does, she's definitely talented enough. And I'd be up for pledging some money to her for doing it too :P I could probably spare $20 a month.
Torchlight 12th Sep 2013, 6:25 PM edit delete reply
I've been lurking here since almost the beginning. I rarely comment. I've perhaps commented ten times or so in the entire run I've been here. This is one of those times when I can't stay silent, because I love the MuGo universe, the characters and the setting. It'd be a terrible thing to see MuGo stop completely, so I'd like to propose an alternative to you, Morg, if there's the energy and the drive for it. MuGo could be turned into a fanfic serial. There's certainly the writing talent there if Tempting Transfinity is anything to go by, and it'd certainly be a good read. There's nothing saying that MuGo needs to continue as a comic if there's no artist willing and able to produce a page every few weeks. In addition; as a written serial there'd be more leeway as to when to update. It'd be ready when it's ready. I also like the Tumblr idea, because let's be honest... You're a funny sod, Morg and if you did just do ramblings on video games via Tumblr, I'd still read it. There's also a thriving (NOT THAT THRIVE) community here, so if you did go the Forum route, it'd be damned easy to pick a community member or group of community members to moderate on your behalf.

It seems to me that there are really only two options left at this point in time based on what I can see. If Morg decides to reveal all spoilers, then that is the end Mushroom Go. All of us will read it, all of us will post about it. and then we'll all move on to the next thing, with MuGo staying with us as a fond memory of better days. If we decide to prolong it for an indefinite amount of time, this chat will go on. For how long, no one will really know. It could be days, months, years, decades; no one really knows except Morg. Could we really wait that long without losing interest? I don't know. And as far as I can see, Morg really doesn't want to do this anymore. I don't know what he's thinking. I don't know what he does every day. The only things I can say are based on what I can see. I'm not saying that he's sick of Mushroom Go. I think what he's sick of is having it be a constant reminder, an insipid weight lifelessly dangling above his head, laden with guilt and continuously bleeding with angst, and having it serve as the chastened ghost of a project he never finished, hauntingly morose and persistently indignant with repentance, or more accurately said, a perpetual deadline, to be frank. I feel as though the more we try and shrug off the responsibility of the future of this comic onto Morg under the guise of "freedom of choice", the more we confine him to this narrow path in order to please us, his loyal fan base. To put it simply, we need to kill this cancer that is plaguing Morg. There is no point in continuing something that has already died in your mind. Doing so would be pretentious and inconsiderate. When you've come to a point where you must lay something to rest, better to bury and be done with it than to let it stagnate and rot in the recess of your mind. Although you would want most of all to see it off in its most glorious form, sometimes we must come to terms with the reality that some things we must let go of, no matter how many may deny its departure. Sometimes, one of the most difficult things to say in life is goodbye, especially to something or someone we love, but when all's been finally said and done, it's time to move on to face another day.

Tobias7 13th Sep 2013, 10:43 AM edit delete reply
It really comes down to how Morg feels, whether he wants closure or the possibility of doing things in the distant future, and I'm guessing you're right that he would prefer closure.

Well Said Baratone.
Ive followed this comic for a long time and have enjoyed every page. I would love to see it go on but I understand if it needs to end. Personally I would like closure or a written novelization of the adventures of the Chainless. Morg you are a terrific writer better than most I have read. Whatever you choose to do I'll support it.
Futurevgd 15th Sep 2013, 3:41 AM edit delete reply

I see another option.
Give us the abridged version of the story, and let us take over your world. To clarify what I mean, I mean open up your universe. Let us expand on things not previously touched on. We can fill in all the minor details and work on other things. I actually think this would keep the community together as well. Every fan being able to submit a different part of the universe, in hopes that it becomes canon. I guess, sort of like SCP. Clearly we would still be working in the confines of a Mario universe, but it has already been reimagined in greater detail than I've seen in most Mario games. There is the sense of something much larger happening here, and opening the universe, your universe, would let us explore that.
I don't know about the rest of you guys, but I think I'm pretty good at writing stories and would love to do so with MuGo. This does have some disadvantages, primarily that it is your vision, and we would be playing in your sandbox, so to speak. From a writer's perspective I can see how that would be hard to handle. To let someone you barely know have control of my universe? Terrifies me. It really does. But from the same writer's perspective, I can see the benefits. It would release the enormous pressure on you, while appeasing (hopefully) the fans.
I'm not talking about rampantly changing everything you had in mind. In this system, you could set yourself up almost like an editor in chief of all our work. Nothing would become canon without your say so. But that too has it's disadvantages. You could try and read through every submitted work, and try and keep it all in order, but that wouldn't alleviate any of the pressure you are feeling now. If you choose this system, you would likely have to have a group of editors under you to screen the various submissions, and see if they break canon.
A system like this would be a little difficult to implement, and would probably require forums of some kind.
Morgenstern, this is your vision, but it doesn't have to be your burden.
RADDman 15th Sep 2013, 12:29 PM edit delete reply
I see this as really viable. Maybe he can tell us the rest of his vision (meaning reveal to us where this was all going and how it'd end), and as a community we all write the story as a fanfic novel or something. That way we keep Morg's vision and get our closure by giving ourselves this closure. I'm totally up for it :)
Guest 17th Sep 2013, 12:49 AM edit delete reply
If you scroll up, you can see that I already offered to do such a thing, so I cannot do anything but wholeheartedly agree. I would love to work on this world.
Of course, I wouldn't want to do anything to contradict anything canon, so I'd need the full story first ;)

I've always seen Martello as a bit more a snarky type, a bit of a curl in the lip sort. as for the closeness of the "form-fitting" shell pieces. I think they could use a bit more definition. Make 'em look like a helmet and shoulder guards.

Hey friendlios who still read the comments section! I'm making this post to keep you in the loop about our comic. Currently we do have a rough idea for a plot, and it will take place in the mario universe, specifically the PAPER MARIO universe.

So my question is to you guys whether you would enjoy an art style more like MuGo, or one that is closer to the actual art style in the paper mario games? Sound off below!
Tobias7 8th Oct 2013, 4:55 PM edit delete reply
I'd definitely prefer the MuGo style art.

MuGo art style I suppose, but I'm on the fence honestly.
Baratone 9th Oct 2013, 12:12 AM edit delete reply

I actually think something besides the MuGo style of art would be better for a paper mario comic. I feel like an art style with a sharper feel to it would be better suited for that particular subgenre of the mario universe.
Baratone 9th Oct 2013, 12:49 AM edit delete reply
Baratone
It's mainly because the game gives off such a different feeling from the main franchise, one that's a lot sleeker in design and comes across as very silly, with a lot of tongue-in-cheek, witty humor and characters that are very loveable and compelling due to their innate individuality and personality that really shines through during the game. It'd be interesting to see what you guys come up with by playing around with the idea a bit to see if you could get a feel for the kind of interpretation you want to achieve. For me, the world of Paper Mario was a very fun, immersive world to mess about in, and as a result, I have many fond memories of it. To balance a helping of wholeheartedness with the occasional serious tone is a challenge that was met quite well with the original, so I'm interested to see where you guys go with this.

fuzzy3158
I don't necessarily agree with this. We've already seen that the MuGo style of comic is very capacle of carrying a couple of jokes every now and then.
It really depends on what kind of story you're going to be writing. If it's sort of dark and somewhat combat based while being in the paper mario universe, you're better off keeping the current style. If you're going to make a lighter, more gag-driven comic, I'd say you're better off changing the art-style to something more similar to paper mario.

I suppose you're right. I shouldn't be imposing my ideas on them since it is their comic. In fact, I agree that a Paper Mario comic in the style of Mushroom Go would be awesome to see, and I'm looking forward to them pulling it off.

MORG! READ THIS!

Since you have decided to end this lovely comic, and Swizzermon, star and I are working full force to get ours up and running, can you give us some more details about Fabes.

We want to make sure we aren't ripping off any of your ideas.
Morgenstern 11th Oct 2013, 12:12 AM edit delete reply
Morgenstern
Oh, no problem.

Originally, he was a knight of the Beanbean Kingdom. His services were mostly applied to keeping the peace, and eventually he grew restless, feeling that his talents were being wasted when he should be out fighting evil and whatnot. Eventually, he left, become a self employed sort of wandering detective--looking into bad guys that had gotten away with their crimes, and bringing them to justice himself.

This was meant to mirror Martello--she was a nearly-soldier that didn't feel she could bear the weight of the task, while Fabes was an elite soldier that aspired to greater things than his role. Martello sought a lower road, Fabes a higher one. Both roads lead them to their own personal senses of freedom and, eventually, crossing swords.

Fabes made a pretty impressive career out of hunting escaped criminals and solving unsolved cases, showing an impeccable talent for getting into the heads of those he hunted. While the opening arcs involving Fabes would make him out to seem almost obsessive in regards to Martello--learning her entire history, every detail of her past, understanding the technology she implements, even keeping up with where the crew of the Chainless had shopped and what they were purchasing... this was actually pretty normal for Fabes. He buries himself in his work, becoming utterly oblivious to anything but the hunt. ...Which was going to make for potential interactions with Hyatt, his Goomba lady friend, who is in love with him but can't get his attention beyond his work. Eventually, Fabes' growing obsession with capturing Martello would drive Hyatt's jealousy to the point of bloodlust, and Hyatt would end up nearly murdering Martello on several occassions.

...And nearly murdering McCoy, after discovering how much it would bother Martello. Hyatt's a whole different bag of cats, though.

Fabes is an exceptional swordsman, and could easily take down any individual member of the Chainless--at least, at this point in the story. For more over-the-top fights (i.e., Fabes fighting McCoy I was looking forward to) Fabes often gets magically buffed by Hyatt, who can communicate/transmit spells via his necklace. I... think that should about cover it.

Oh, and the MINUS engraved in his belt is a reference to legends of the Minus World--the idea of being trapped, forever, in an unending chase surrounded by monsters. Fabes doesn't really trust any of the people he works with, but he'll overlook minor evils for the sake of stopping the larger ones. He doesn't trust Fungus at all, for example--Fungus still refuses to take his mask off, and Shrapnel has likely been reprogrammed by Fungus for some nefarious deed. Fabes knows that Hyatt has done some pretty terrible things... but he'll operate with this ragtag group for the sake of, say, bringing in Martello. Fabes has no friends, only associates. Swimming forever in a self-imposed purgatory, never knowing when or why he'll ever stop, surrounding himself with nothing but enemies... Minus.

In retrospect, it might be faster for me to break down all the little secrets and events and what-would-have-beens of Mushroom Go on a by-character basis, rather than listing out each of the things that would have occurred in sort of chronological order. I haven't really decided yet, but this is turning into a pretty huge honkin' Wordpad file.

RADDman 22nd Oct 2013, 2:36 PM edit delete reply
The way you worked in the Minus World glitch into this as a philosophical concept (kinda along the lines of Plato's Cave or the Utopia) is really clever. Stuff like that is what I've always admired about your work. Heck, I even included it in my own massive crossover project (/r/FictionMultiverse on Reddit). I chose this portrayal of the Mushroom Kingdom, which in the FIction Multiverse (a world where most works of fiction, if not all, coexist and even affect and connect with each other), is a realm of Wonderland that could only be accessed by a pipeline under Brooklyn.

(Admittedly, Mushroom Go only has a small mention in there ... but I could do something more with it if some fans here can give a little help with that subreddit)

Fuzzy3158 31st Oct 2013, 3:48 AM edit delete reply
the way it went with the updates really reminded me of my relationship with my dad. In the beginning things were reasonably periodic and good. Then I started seeing him less and less and he got some new girlfriend who's rich and he pretty much moved out of the country to Germany and I never got to see him again. In the end my mom told me the truth about him not actually being my biological dad.

What I'm trying to say is that I'm used to disappointments and you can't really force someone to do what he doesn't love doing. Getting your hopes up every time only adds to the crushed feelings.

Nowadays, I pretty much still check the site daily because the other 3 guys are working on stuff and I'm excited for it. Also Morg's text file.

Yeah me too. I wonder where Cammiluna's been, I met her in person over the summer at Otakon and it was fun :)

For anyone who still checks the comments, we've updated Ecksistence twice. Go Check it out at: http://ecksistence.webcomic.ws/comics

Cool! Looking good :) fyi you should probably give out links to your comic as http://ecksistence.webcomic.ws
The way you did it was a permanent link to comic number 2, the way above is a link to whatever is the newest comic.

Hey, hope you still read these! I was really sad to see the comic end like this, but I think I understand, I've given up on a few projects myself.
In any case, don't stop drawing, or writing. Better yet, don't let Mushroom Go die! Occasional drawings of the characters, occasional un-realted comics, or even just staying in touch with your fans would be cool.
I know you're against having others carry on the comic, but are you against people drawing strips of events as they happen according the the MG Mega-guide-thing?

Anywho, good luck with whatever you're working on now.

Pesei, I hate to burst your bubble, but Mushroom Go is dead and buried. We're pretty much waiting for the eulogy, which is a complete spoiler of the story with all clever implications and secrets Morgenstern has hidden in the story.
We in this case appears to be just Tobias7, me and GreatandmightyOne. So yeah.

I still do like the idea of fans creating mini-comics/fanart from the eulogy though.

i come to check the comments daily. I've been doing so since comic 50.
Pesei 13th Dec 2013, 12:32 AM edit delete reply
Oh, I know. It was just some encouragement for Morgen to keep writing and drawing, that's all. I know about the spoiler release. Asking if he'd be cool with people making short strips, but from the looks of it he isn't.

From the looks of it, he has apparently completely forgotten about MuGo. It's probably still somewhere in the darkest depths of his mind, now forever a could-have-been and a never-was.

I've been coming about once a week for a long time now, but never really had anything to say. I'm just looking forward to at least learning what was planned, even if the comic itself won't be coming back.

Who was that? someone commented but there was no trace of it. It just disappeared, must be nothing I guess :P

I must confess I don't think the word file is ever going to come. R.I.P. MuGo, Its been fun

I decided to post a comment for the first time just to say that I am very sad that this is dead Y^Y,

Can we like make somewhere to chat (That isn't Chatango) because If this dies completely I'm really going to miss talking to you guys.
Tobias7 23rd Dec 2013, 12:38 PM edit delete reply
Come over to ecksistence, as well as this chat. By the way Guest, who are you?

I'm mildly embarrassed that I posted as a guest. I posted that because some people don't read Ecksistence and I'd like to keep hearing from them.

So I've been lurking here every now and then. I don't think I ever actually said anything about the death of this series so here I am now. I am really sad to see this go, It was my favorite webcomic to keep up with and the story development was excellent. I can't wait for the big story reveal whenever that may happen, but I still want to say it had a good run. There are 4 completed storys and that's not bad. I just want to know if this website will remain here as an "archive" or if it will eventually be taken down. I want to be able to come back and re-read the comic. I may just go through one day and save all the images on my PC.

Happy Christmas btw, and thanks for being such awesome people!
