About Prophecy Failed:
Prophecy Failed is a webcomic about a group of people trying to prevent the downfall of their country by going to a place and doing a thing, based on a vague prophecy. Their party includes the prophet herself, who just happens to a naive eleven-year-old, her guardian (a foreigner who, despite having no attachments to the country itself beyond the well-being of the prophet, is determined to succeed), a bard more or less along for the ride, and a bitter ex-soldier who several years ago lost her job to the same conspiracy.
PF is kind of a personal project fueled by things that interest me, i.e., a fantasy land almost completely devoid of fantastical things, conspiracies, history, utterly nice people, jerks, et cetera. I’ve always written pretty much for my own entertainment, but I am terrible at self-motivation, and so I decided the best way to get the story into a format to share it with other people would be to turn it into a webcomic. That way, I could take the entire story one page at a time and not get overwhelmed trying to do it all at once.
I had the vaguest idea for PF sitting around for some time before I actually started getting the world and characters together. I started fleshing it out in 2007, and it debuted on the internet in June or July of 2009. As for the the future, only time will tell.
Or will it?
Only time will tell.
