Most of all, I want the Fools to go "where fools fear to tread." I hope this makes sense to someone other than myself for whom it makes little or no sense at all.
I worry about "Where fools fear to tread" because it is, in my experience, that the foolish fear no place.
It's hard to really classify how we look at the comic exactly. I have heard it described as "fantasy", but the traditional definition of fantasy involves elves, quests, magic runes, etc. Tales of Pylea or Tales of the Travelling Gnome come to mind when I think fantasy (and then there are also flat versions as well). It's certainly not a gag comic, per se, but we do view it as a comedy with a dominant storyline. And when it comes to being historical, we alternate between doing ridiculous amounts of research and completely ignoring the known facts (the rule of thumb is we never let the truth get in the way of the story).
I really am not exactly certain whether we are a pseudo-historical dramatic comedy or a comedic drama.
