Hi, my name is Black Hell, I'm from that tiny country on the most southwest place of Europe.

My real name is Mauro, which a Italian name, Meaning Moor and Shield. I am currently 15 years old, and i like M&M's. :3
I hate when people won't listen to me and ignore what i say, specialy on Real Life. (On internet i don't bother.) And when people have this image of me last year and as much i change, they still bash and attack me couse of whatever i did in the past.

I found Drowtales by browsing Newsground, and after watching a flash animation about how "smoke kills" I was going to close the window, when i saw something about a anime-like flash animation.
I opened it, just to be the last one, and saw a episode of Pink Limonade, where this girl burped. (Was it Pink Limonade? Yup. Pepper was in there. Pepper reminds me of a girl that has some affection for snipers...)

In the end of it, his site was indicated, so i (Already amused and curios.) went to it.
After browsing a bit, i think i saw a Drowtales animation and saw it. (Since i can't remember, this might have happened as well: I saw the link to the Menssage Board, and it got me to here) Well, it amused me (Or not) and i went to the site.

I read the first chapter (The renewed one) and then the fourth, and went on to the 7th chapter (i believe) until i discovered the forum.

And after some misunderstandments (Like posting a "Hi!" thread in the "World setting Forum") I finaly got here.

Couldn't find a better way to spend my time and start being anti-social. *beer*


(This is to compensate the bad start. Sorry Kern (IF you ever read this post. Wich you won't, i bet.) and sgt. Granite.)

Just a few lines about comic interests and how you encountered the site would have been fine. :P Going into name and age is going a bit too personal in details I think :-P

Since when were you a new reader Black Hell? XD

You know, it was actually pretty funny how I found this site. One of the guys in my dorm and I were browsing Newgrounds, and we found the 4th birthday animation with Chiri, Shan, and Kyo. I found it most amusing so I looked it up on my own machine. I followed the link and ended up here.

btw, I'm hardly a new reader. been coming round here for well over a year and going strong.

A little over a month since I joined, but i found this website through an ad on the webcomic Rob and Elliot. So pretty much pure accident, since it was only up for a week. The picture of Ariel on it was so cool I couldn't resist.

I found this comic while bored and web-trawling for comics when in college. It wasn't very good. I went away. Wandered back through later after being annoyed by the ads. I was really bored, so I figured why not? Couldn't be any worse than that Barbarian comic. It had gotten a lot better. Been on the forums for over a year now...

Here's to Kern's persistance and hard work.

I found DT about 3 years ago when i saw an ad for it on Mac Hall- Ian even mentioned it on the front page- as luck would have it, I was reading Salvatore's books then, so I decided to give DT a shot. Initially I saw the banner and was unsure whether or not I would like it (it was the one that had a smiling Ariel holding a very large scythe) I doubted a web-comic that apparently was focused on a young girl would have the testosterone content that I preferred (although the fact that she was carrying a weapon and the comic featured drow in it gave me hope for wanton destruction and slayings in the comic). Though I generally prefer the heavy on ass-kicking "Conan" style fantasy stories, I still was enraptured by DT and it's "realistic" portrayal of drow. I was amazed- definately one of the best comics on the internet story and art wise, even in 2003 when I found it, and even more so today. I joined the forums about a year and a half ago to partake in a discussion of military tactics and weaponry.

Err, I'm not a new reader. I hope I don't get things thrown at me (such as empty forum accounts). But I shall post here so I will never make this sort of post again.

I found Drowtales in the winter of 2004. I stuck around, and decided I liked the way Kern drew and coloured eyes. In fact, I was fascinated by it. I had never encountered a webcomic that updated more than once a month, as well. That too was fascinating. So I stayed, and Drowtales became something like a drug. Which was a bit odd, because I knew absolutely nothing about any sort of drow, before I came. Oh, and Drowtales inspired me to start drawing manga-style people and try doing comic pages. Before that, I only drew extremely embarassing dragons, birds, and furries.

Since I started in Chapter 9, I thought Chrys'tel was the main character for a bit. First impressions, y'know? XD This was the first page I remember reading:

I figured "why not?".
I've been personal on the chat, so the diference is none. >:3
Besides... This is my third home. (I spend more time with you then with anybody else. Makes me anti-social, but hell, i like DT forum like i never liked any other site.) Oh, make it the fourth. i just found a new (And hidden. :3 ) villain HQ. >:3


I'm not?
:S ?
But somebody said i was the Eternal Newbie of the forum. :3 (I like that tittle anyway.)

Hehe, joking aside, i made that post to compensate the bad start. Makes me sleep better at night and have less shivers when i randomly remember it. :)

Anyway...
>:3 >:3 >:3 >:3 :v oooooooooooo
Waka waka waka waka waka.

I'll stop the explenations and keep the thread clean for the newcomers... ...Right...
... About...
... Now!

I was looking for a forum to RP at after mine was shutdown due to some odd circumstances. None the less I stayed for a month till I found out about the comic, read it, enjoyed it, and well... here I am, 10K+ post, and most of it in chat. I also welcome new people in chat with fruit. :3 (< I love this new emoticon! =D and this one too > :v )

Way back in 2004 I had been bored and was looking up "drow" in google to see what all the fuss was about in fantasy fiction. This was the first link that came up. Glad I clicked it.
