I Miss Zogonia


Dragon Magazine General Discussion


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules Subscriber

I've got "Slice of Death", which has kept me from total withdrawal, but its not the same. I miss the monthly antics!!

Tony Moseley's Zogonia site has been blank for some time. Anyone from Paizo heard from him since Dragon went bye-bye? Any chance of him and Paizo teaming up for a sequel to "Slice of Death"? Domato's Delvers wouldn't give up without Kev stabbin' something....

Osirion

You and me both man.Love to see some new stuff.Kev was just the best i think I DM'd him once.

Cheliax

We need more Zogonia. Perhaps, a new compilation called "A Slice of Life."


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Modules, Tales Subscriber

That was one of my all-time favorite strips. I was hoping that when James announced the 10 pages cut off from the adventures in Pathfinder, that the "side trek" mini-adventure would still leave a few extra pages.

To be filled by...either a new Kyle Hunter strip, or the continuation of Zogonia (my preference) or Mt Zogon. Hell, even 1 page of Tony's stuff would do!

Cheliax

All in favor of seeing at least a page of Zogonia in Pathfinder say: aye!

"Aye!"

All those who oppose:

Pulls knife to perform backstab

I'll add an "Aye!"

(Kev would probably add 2 Eyes, and a spleen too... but then Dindil would need them back when Domato raises him)

Yes, more Zogonia!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Modules, Tales Subscriber

Well, if it wasn't obvious from my last post, here's an enthusiastic "Aye!".

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

I don't know what had caused Tony to leave Dungeon before the end of the mag's run, but if he were willing and able, I would submit more "Ayes" than a gallion with hydra sailors.


I'll add an 'Aye', and so will my 3 friends, the hecatoncheires.

Andoran

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I'll add an aye - Zogonia was definately my favourite comic.

I'd love it if any of the paizo crew could shed some light on Tony's current activities or whereabouts.


I totally miss Tony and Zogonia. I thought he had a website, but I haven't been able to find it recently.

I miss Kyle's Downer, too. And Dork Tower.

I'd love to see all of the comics back somewhere in a Paizo product.

The only site I was aware of was this but its had all the strips taken down for quite some time. I did some searching around and there's not much info out there. Even the wikipedia pages on Zogonia and Mount Zogon were deleted! ("Non notable"? Who are these guys!)

If I was the suspicious sort, I'd be getting, well, suspicious that there is a plot to bury this comic.


I loved "Mount Zogon," even more than "Order of the Stick." Sometimes I flip through old issues of Dungeon just to read it.

Cheliax

Aye!

Andoran RPG Superstar 2008 Top 32, 2011 Top 16

And Aye for me also. I not only miss the comics, but also Tony's quirky, funny comments on the website.

Silver Crusade

Aye! I miss Zogonia too.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Aye!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules Subscriber

AYE! I miss them mightily! ::curses digital initiative!::


This hasn't been posted in for quite some time. Whatever happened to Zogonia? The site is down still.

Andoran RPG Superstar 2008 Top 32, 2011 Top 16

I check the site every few months hoping that maybe it will be back - but so far, nothing. I haven't heard anything about what if any future plans there are for Zogonia and Mt. Zogon, or for new projects either.

It would be great if someone at Paizo could contact him and let him know his fans are waiting for something to read, laugh at, and buy.

Qadira

A hearty AYE here. Unfortunately Tony's website had not been updated since the end of the Mag.’s run. Don't know the specifics.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Modules, Tales Subscriber

Yes, I would love it if someone in the know would let us know what's happened to this strip and Tony in general.

The same goes for Kyle Hunter and "Downer". I know the latter is probably WOTC's property, but I would go nuts if he did something similar w/ Paizo!

Especially since Paizo (shakes fist at Paizo) decided not to publish the 2nd volume of Downer...

Look, I can still draw! Getting Paizo's Harrow illustrations out the door was so grueling that I pretty much stopped drawing for a year. Now that I've settled in to Impact, and those 12-hour days are becoming more rare, the creative juices are returning. I'm going to start posting more illos to Flickr, and give up on my grandiose plan to save the world with an elaborate illustration web site.


Ahhh, Zogonia. I missed this one so much that the idea of creating a fansite that collected all of Moseley's works that was not published in Slice of Death crossed my mind a year or so ago. The book was a killer, easily one of the funniest comic I ever read.

I suppose Tony took his website down because it could lower the sales of the book. A better move would have been to remove a certain percentage of the strips that were published in the book and continue the adventures of Domato's Delvers and Galeena in his spare time as a webcomic. Maybe after a while he could have done it full time, who knows.

Still missing it...

Not sure how I missed this post, Snorter, but a belated thanks to you for it. I don't have a Facebook account (and never will, sorry...), so thanks for the quote. I'd ask what "Impact" is but this is already a threadjack, so I'll find out some other way.

As for Zogonia...sigh...not sure I've ever laughed so hard at a d&d-based comic. Truly a loss not to have this around any longer!


I'll add an aye! Domato's Delver's really delivered the laughs

Andoran

(sigh)
still no official word from Paizo?
c'mon guys, whats the deal?
Make a deal for another Zogonia book!
pleeeeeeeese.

we loves us some more Tony comics.


Aye!!


Aye! I love Zogonia dearly.


I miss Zogonia too, and especially Mt. Zogon. I would love another book.


Mt. Zogon was hilarious.

I am not sure the Paizo staff still checks on this part of the boards,

but I would really like to know what has happened to Tony and the comics, they both rocked so hard.

I also miss the quirky dice game Tony designed and put on the site, it was great and I really want to play it again!

Update me on the dice game. What was it exactly?

I read an editorial in... I think Knights of the Dinner Table?

Someone had tracked Tony down to make an offer to publish another book, and he basically said he was out of the biz and had dropped off the face of the earth so people would leave him alone. Something about the industry had rubbed him the wrong way and he just wanted to forget about being an illustrator.

It's sad, but he was pretty adamant that it wasn't open for discussion. I only wish I could remember where I read this...

Damn. I've never thought of this industry as one that eats its young, but I guess there are casualties along the way. I'm sorry to hear this.

Hum. That sounds a lot like Dave Trampier's story. Confusion as to who, or burnout repeating?

Are you sure this wasn't Dave Trampier's story? Because, according to Dragon #359, Trampier was tracked by Jolly R. Blackburn (of Kenzer & Co. - publishers of KotDT) for a compilation of Wormy comics, and was told to be left alone, just like in your report.

Cheliax

I wish we hade more info. I miss Zogonia.


Zogonia was a lot of fun. It's sad that he may have been burned by the gaming industry. I hope he picks up the pen again some day.


The website is still blank, but it's still there. I don't know if that means anything.

I always enjoyed reading the new Zogonia and Mt. Zogon strips. I had kind of forgotten how much I missed them until I looked at "Slice of Death" the other day and remembered.


Arise old thread, from the depths of Forum Hell itself!

....The Zogonia website appears to have expired.

That's a real loss...I truly loved Zogonia and Mt. Zogon.

Correcting myself over a year later: You may be right. Sorry for any confusion...


Find me Tony Moseley!

Make with the funny pictures!

-Ben.


Are there any updates here? I came across a Zogonia Facebook page operated by Open Gaming Magazine, but it seems to have petered out as of August 2013.

A cursory internet search turns up some posts made by Tony Moseley in 2005/6, nothing more recent. I would love to see more Zogonia/Mt Zogon.


Love zogonia and Mt. Zogon!!
