…And that’s pretty much it. No doubt to Shaenon’s perpetual bemusement.
*Monster of the Week is pretty boss, too. This is just one example of why.
If the Kickstarter gets to $18.5K, they add Cthulhu & the Mythos to the movie (which the Jack Chick website itself will tell you is real).
Again: I feel that this is a good Kickstarter to back, and I have done so.
…but this is what really sold me on the concept:
“Colin McComb will issue a video apology for the most embarrassing work of his career: 2nd Edition D&Ds Complete Book of Elves.” I checked with my wife – she’s the AD&D DM of the household – and yea, indeed, that work was remarkably bad. Apparently, and according to the book, there was no better way to spend one’s life than to be an elf; failure to be one was a cruel, cruel fate.
Well, I guess that explains the Thalmor.
(Stands for ‘Open Game License.’)
Since the Hillfolk Kickstarter is now funded at 50K, Robin Laws will presumably be releasing the game system for public use.
Which means that I have a personal side project to work on, now. Heh. I haven’t done amateur gameworld design in years, thanks to various things; this should be interesting.
It’d be totally sweet if the GUMSHOE RPG went Open Game License, so that I could do this supplement that I’ve been letting coagulate in my head for the last week or so.
Totally, totally sweet.
Said complaint is in regard to this project (Benign Kingdom Fall 2012*); I understand that Kickstarter would probably not mind taking PayPal, but I think that PP is missing a bet, here.
*I read at least two of the webcomics involved, so I figure that I have a 50% chance at the $15 level at getting a print copy of the book from an artist that I know that I like. Plus, these people need to eat and none of them have smashed me in the face with their politics recently.
I honestly hope that this doesn’t spoil it for Myq Kaplan: I like a good dose of meta as well as the next pers… wait, no, most people actually aren’t into meta. I like a good dose of meta.
Well, it got you to click through.
Been thinking about this story – the title (“Bikini-clad Ohio woman is begging for boobs on Akron street corner“) says it all – and it’s interesting to see what the line is. Because panhandling for breast implants (which you apparently need a license for*) is obviously a bit weird. But isn’t this the same principle as Kickstarter? Or, ahem…
…a PayPal button?
