Unfortunately my own talents are with writing traditional stories, not sequential art.

However I might suggest that you write out the entire story as you have it, then see about adapting and distilling that into a visual-oriented media format.

Lady Myst? Any suggestions?

I divide up a piece of paper into up to 9 sections (depending on how small I'm willing to go) and draw out the storyboards for each page, rather than trying to script the comic with words. Make sure you read any dialogue out loud to make sure it seems natural, and remember that a good story will make up for less-than-perfect artwork.

First, click this link to give me Shifter-Coins.

Then, feel free to read the first two chapters of my book, Blood Moon: The Blue Vampire, by clicking here.
You can also visit the grave of my old webcomic, Linnyanie, or the wasteland of my DeviantArt page.
