Tears & Pain is the Story of the Planet Etherian, her Denizens and the different ages through which they exist. Currently is the the Age of Rhiannon, also known to the scholars as the fourth Age. in this time a despotic Queen has risen on the Daenerian Continent. Ruling from her Island Stronghold Rhiannon, also know as the Red Queen seeks to conquer, and eliminate the non human races of Etherian. Normally the Elves and Dwarves would ignore a short lived human queen for “Kingdoms come and go, and humans die so quickly.” (Elthaan, 431 AR) However, Rhiannon seems to be immortal, a fact most disconcerting to the longer lived races.
The Current Storyline focuses on a group of Outlaws *According to Rhiannon anyway* who seek to pull down the Queen and end her rule. They also seek out the child prophesied to be the one who can kill the Red Queen.
The Comic updates Mon. Wed. and Fri. and is a humor/drama based strip. it is written and drawn by Thorne a long time fantasy addict, who has been working on this story in his head since he was 13. Currently Thorne is a full time Student pursuing an AA Degree with absolutely no idea what Thorne wants to do afterward.
Thorne refers to readers of the comic as “Painkillers” a name that reminds Thorne that when the pain of the comic gets to him, Thorne’s painkillers are what keeps Thorne going.
Thorne also signs off most of his correspondences with “Good Travels” a small Gesture that means that wherever life takes you, whatever path you travel, may it be full of prosperity.
Thorne also finds it amusing to speak in third person.
