October 2, 2006 (Blue Springs, MO) – Baeg Tobar (, a premiere online, shared world community of creators of fiction and art, is pleased to announce the launch of their newest Web comic. Unlike most Web comics, “The Broken Mantle” features not only regularly updated panels, but sections of prose accompanied by a splash page of art. This hybrid of prose and comic is a new format for the Baeg Tobar site. The story, developed by writer Daniel Tyler Gooden, tells of a mechanical man’s search for an ancient city and a veteran explorer’s hope to find his way home from the lost continent on which he finds himself trapped. Illustrator Rick Hershey, founder of Empty Room Studios and creator of Steampunk Musha RPG, and colorist Ramiro Diaz Legaspe provide the illustrations. “The Broken Mantle” updates every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, beginning on October 9th, 2006.

“My favorite storyline has always been of the fallen empire,” said Gooden. “This type of story has too many incredible possibilities not to get excited about writing it. I'm glad to be given the chance by Baeg Tobar.”

Hershey also expressed his enthusiasm for working on the project. “After reading Daniel's script and having the chance to get Ramiro to color my lines, I was hooked. So far, I’m enjoying every minute of it.”

“The Broken Mantle” joins Web comics “The Fall of Pileaus” and “Stoneteller” on the Baeg Tobar Web site. These are the newest projects for the Baeg Tobar site, which currently hosts six serial novels that are updated with new chapters once a month.
