My 72nd submission to DYOS X. [link]

This comic helped me understand the art of proper lighting in movie-making. The map's native lighting was too dark for simple post-production adjustment, so I fiddled about with lamp entities to get a legible picture. It's short, but colourful, so I don't think I'll throw it in with the scraps.

As with the Avatar Wars climax, the nuke in the last panel is a third-party addon. I turned up visibility to capture the full detail, but I'm not entirely sure how far it was from where I was standing. It was at least a couple of kilometres at any rate; those things are full scale.

The witch's line in the opening panel is taken from this Faulty Logic comic.
