The List! It’s Mine! ALL MINE!

Hello souls and the soulless.

Well, it’s happened! With the help of Kickstarter, I have in my grubby, little inbox…

THE KICKSTARTER BACKER LIST FOR GOBLINS: ALTERNATE REALITIES!

Thousands and thousands (more than I thought, actually) of names, with donation amounts, emails and home addresses! Some of those names are missing the home addresses, but that’s not an issue. We’ve got SOME way of contacting you and we’ll damn well use it.

This list is a big read and so far, I’ve only skimmed through it. I’m told that those who donated through means outside of Kickstarter, are included on the list.

What to do if you’re a backer.

Keep waiting. Before G:AR goes into production, we’ll be performing the massive task of making contact with EVERYONE to whom a reward is owed. Keep in mind, that we will not be able to give you everything that was promised to you during the Kickstarter (ie. tableclothes, working lightsabers…) . At the very least, if you were promised a copy of the game, you should be getting that much (more on that in a moment). There will come a time when we’ll say “If you haven’t been contacted by now, contact us and we’ll verify your backerness”. Keep watching this blog and/or my Twitter for that announcement.

What to do if you weren’t a backer, but you want to play the game.

Keep waiting. While the backers are getting their copies of G:AR, work will be going into producing the game for sale. Once that happens, you can buy your very own copy.

How is all of this possible? You never got the Kickstarter funds.

I’m not allowed to make an official announcement yet, but I… no. We… seem to have been rescued. Very soon, official announcements should be exploding like a Tie Fighter crashing into an asteroid. Keep in mind though… nothing has been signed yet. There’s just been talks and verbal agreements. So while I really think this is going to all have a happy ending, nothing I’m saying is guaranteed. But I’m continuing to do everything possible to get us there. But this whole thing could still crash and burn like a… like a Tie Fighter crashing into an asteroid. Have I used that metaphor? Sorry, when it comes to writing, I’m no Patrick Rothfuss.

Live boops.

You may have noticed that I’m live drawing on a nigh daily basis again. If you’d like to come and hang out with a growing number of fun, friendly gaming/comic geeks, pop in and you’re likely to see me drawing and muttering to myself. You’re also welcome to ask me stuff in the chatroom and I’ll do my best to answer. I’ll make sure to avoid live drawing those Goblins panels that are simply too spoilerish. These days, my time is split 50/50 between Goblins and drawing G:AR cards.

That vote button at the top of the site.

I’ve been neglecting that, but throughout September, I’m going to see if I can post something fun or a sneak peek, etc as close to every day as I can. So feel free to click on that thing once a day to see if I’ve placed anything new under there and help push Goblins back up into the number one spot. While you’re at it, check out the other webcomics in the TopWebComics list. There’s a lot of amazing talent there and you can always vote for more than one webcomic each day! The Sept. 1st sneak peek is something unintentionally phallic from the upcoming Goblins page (don’t worry, it’s SFW).

Thanks!
