Inspired by @NeoScum: a zine about Legacy of Adam, the children God left in the shadows, and the insurmountable weight they must carry to Be Good.
I crawl out of my hole, as I do, periodically, to offer this: what I have been working on over the summer and most of the fall
I am forever hungry for more lore about Legacy of Adam, and in lieu of concrete facts, this is a collection of speculative experiences based on what we do know and what we can extrapolate from that. It was also a chance to dig into some character backstories a little bc I haven’t ever really gone this far back with these guys before.
You can download it for free right here. Enjoy, and please heed the content warnings on the itch.io page/intro page in the zine!!

.........AND WE'RE DONE! Thanks for sticking with me while I posted this very slowly
If you want more of this content then 1) stick around because I eat, sleep and breathe NeoScum but also 2) go listen to NeoScum! It's a (very canon-deviant bc frankly canon Shadowrun blows) Shadowrun actual play podcast that I have both laughed my ass off and cried at for literally entire five minute scenes, and the people behind it are just really great human beings who are a joy to figuratively be around. I really cannot recommend it enough (and you will have the full context for this comic.............)
(the starter page directs new listeners to jump in at like episode 5 or something but I am ADAMANT in my recommendation that people start with episode 1 for chronology's sake and also because there's a running joke established in episode 1 that has grown into a huge side plot point so you GOTTA)

What the hell, take two pages because the first one isn't particularly interesting and I drew some really good forestry for this thing

(This page looks so weird to me compared to later pages as I got way more comfortable with how I wanted to draw Zenith lmao)
WOOGH ok here it is... the big one...
This is a comic I started way back in January and finished in, like, April? I've never worked so hard on anything in my goddamn life LMAO and the feedback I got from it from everyone was so heartwarming
This whole thing is based on Zenith's mass confusion hell dream from the episode where Tech knocks everyone out to get them out of a shoot-up (I forget which episode it is specifically) because I just love to take heart-wrenching concepts and run with them. Posting pages individualy over the next few days cuz I can't (to my knowledge) shuffle them around in a multi-image post to arrange them in a way that's best readable, starting w/ this cover page. Enjoy
