This week’s illustration is from A Peacock Among Pigeons, on Kickstarter After a week filled with some really amazing projects, this week seems a little more chill. So I’m going to take five minutes out to look at a project which isn’t remarkable–or even necessarily likely to succeed–but I do like the way they’re handling things. ..
Tabletop role-playing drama and action in a galaxy poised on the brink of war… Vanguard – Varmisk Fallen Kickstarter ending 4/9/15 Fair warning: This product isn’t for everyone. Indie tabletop RPGs (TRPGs henceforth) are a segment of a section of a percentage of the population, and a TRPG that steps outside the mainstream is going ..
A whimsical children’s story of a unicorn trying to find its place in a mythical world… The Grumpy Unicorn Kickstarter ending 4/10/15 Just a short callout for an adorable project, with children’s books it’s easy to write a post that’s longer than the book itself. So keeping it brief. The Grumpy Unicorn is a story of ..
A game of enchantments and intrigues in the shadow of Stonehenge… Wizards of the Wild Kickstarter ending 4/9/15 Imagine if you will… The evening of the longest night. Each star is perfectly clear in the chill air, and the moon climbs inexorably toward its zenith in the sky. As the shadows of Stonehenge’s ancient monoliths shorten, ..

A little anime, a little space opera, and a lot of epic. Space Ramblers Indiegogo campaign ending 4/9/15 Space Ramblers–soon to appear on a web browser near you–is a massively epic space opera–it’s got swords, it’s got blasters, it has dragons, it potentially has the end of the universe, and may, possibly, have strange ..
A savage world of pantherine warriors and reptile foes… Tribes of Kai Kickstarter ending 4/10/15 A picture is worth a thousand words. Really. I’m trying to find a way to talk about this project that isn’t just pointing at the kickstarter page and shouting “LOOK! LOOK AT THE CATS!!” It’s challenging. In a world that ..
A bound collection of lust in the desert and love beyond the afterlife, featuring the jackal god Anubis… Anubis: Dark Desire Anthology Kickstarter ending 4/5/15 [Note: I usually try to use thumbnails that represent the kickstarter project, but as the original comics were B&W and hard to find, and the Kickstarter anthology is full color, ..
This is not one of my usual posts. Well, it is, in that I’m going to be rambling about funding platform features, because that’s why I’m here, but this week, this is a direct ask for someone I care very much for. But first, a dubious little landmark in my life–my 40th birthday is coming ..
