Here's those two messed up ones.  I'll have to remember when I post GIFs that the 1st color slot needs to be free.

Anyway, on with the hype: 

Mj-M-1 will be available soon.  It's a personal serial.  If you look back on the first image, the mock comic cover, that's how the mod should be thought of, as the first issue of a comicbook (but with UA combats & some exploration).  When or if the next ish should ever come out, who can say. 

With this mod, I am beginning the epic adventure that I envisioned when I first came up with my superhero character of Major Mystery.  I used him before for my UANL mystery challenge mod "Superdead" because he qualified for that through name alone, but that adventure was rather atypical.  This mod more fully explains his standard modus opperandi, and fixes some fictional rules that his story-universe follows.  I've also given him a bit of an artistic face-lift.

You may note the "scary bones" frame set.  I converted my "Bamboo" frame set because everybody seemed to be using it for bones, so I figured, if they want bones, give 'em bones.  Ya'll can grab those from the mod when it's up.  It should be easy to change the hue of the bones, too.  If you have any trouble, just let me know. 

There's lots more cool art in the mod, too.  Hopefully, you will find it fun to play, as well.

Mj-M-1 is now available at the UA File Archive: http://frua.rosedragon.org/new.htm 
  :D

I also ULed a fixed version of my first Major Mystery mod "Superdead."  If you played through the original without encountering any bugs, you can, of course, ignore this one.   :P

Oh man, it is so unfair that I've got class on Saturday - till 6:30 tonight.

Okay, maybe if I don't sleep at all tonight, I can finish Ben's new mod, play this one which I am very excited about, and finish putting FRUA on my laptop which is running Ubuntu (thank you DOSBox). :D

And don't forget, once you guys get done playing both these modules (and perhaps even Glen Sprigg's unfinished module), we have a place here on the forums for new reviews.  I'm sure we'd all love to hear feedback.

Yup, assuming my FRUA continues to work, I'll be playing both next week. I have too many raids in WoW this week to even attempt it.
