David Morgan-Mar’s Irregular Webcomic Kickstarter is only 800 bucks away…

…with 31 hours to go. As I’ve said before, he’s a good dude. I’ve tossed in [- in fact, I just upped it a little]. Won’t you?

Irregular Webcomic’s @dmmaus is a man of good character, known to me. Back his Kickstarter.

David Morgan-Mar is a web-cartoonist (Irregular Webcomic, Darths and Droids) who is doing a Kickstarter to fund his first book of Irregular Webcomic; he is a Good Fellow who I remember from the Before Times. Please note that because he is Australian, the Kickstarter is priced in Australian dollars. It’s considerably less in American money.

Please force @CUnderkoffler to have to write for Unknown Armies.

The Unknown Armies Kickstarter is so close to being able to force him to do that.

So, so close. Just five hundred bucks more.

…Annnnd the Unknown Armies Third Edition Kickstarter.

THIS one I knew about, starting yesterday. THIS one I knew I wanted, no question. THIS one I logged on to back. Unknown Armies is an amazing game that never generates enough content to satisfy me. I can’t wait to get these books.

A last-minute note: KULT: Divinity Horror RPG Kickstarter’s final hours.

I somehow missed this for the last month: they’re coming out with a new edition of the old-school RPG KULT. You have less than half a day to back it, not that it needs it. Really, I have no idea how I missed this…

The OLO Smartphone 3D Printer Kickstarter.

I’m not kicking in, because I don’t need a 3D Printer that can print small things using your smartphone and it’s a little expensive for indulge myself.  But this is pretty cool technology, don’t you think? Materials science keeps on going on.

The ‘The City of Lightning: a Girl Genius Graphic Novel’ Kickstarter.

Interesting question: do I want the medal, or do I want the book? I maybe want the medal more than the book, for once. Which is weird, I know. Not very like me.

Day Six of the 7th Sea Kickstarter / Wife’s Present Pledge Drive.

goal-thermometer-newWell, it’s been going pretty well. With the latest batch, and assuming that all the family members pull through, I should be able to pay for the 7th Sea Kickstarter without going too far into future discretionary income territory. Certainly not the six months I was originally contemplating, to be sure.

Also: yeah, the cat is out of the bag.  Partially because my buddy Michael N. from comments was right, and partially because it’s not been the best of weeks and I needed a bit of a lift. Best way to get that is give somebody else a bit of a lift, too.  She was, of course, highly pleased – and, yes, planning to do whatever submitted write-up needs to be, well, submitted.

Anyway: tomorrow is the last full day of the pledge drive, which I guess means that it officially closes Sunday.  And, as always: thanks, folks. Much appreciated. (more…)

Day 4 of the 7th Sea 2nd Edition Kickstarter / birthday gift pledge drive.

goal-thermometer-newWe are definitely chugging along on the 7th Sea Kickstarter pay-for-my-wife’s-character’s-RPG-immortality pledge drive, here; although strict accuracy requires that I note that I tapped family members for this one.  You would not believe how difficult it is to shop for my wife… what am I saying?  Probably most of the people reading this are impossible to shop for, are involved with someone who is impossible to shop for, or both.  Admittedly, in our cases it’s largely the problem that people will find it difficult to accept that, yes, please, Amazon gift cards.  There’s nothing wrong with Amazon gift cards.  We dream about getting Amazon gift cards for our birthdays and Christmases.

But I digress.  I’m well and truly committed at this point: somebody snapped up the $500 pledge level I abandoned for the $1,000 one.  I hope that that person yelled Woo-hoo! when he or she noticed that the level was now open again.  It pleases me to think that I made the day of somebody that I don’t even know; it tastes of June mornings when the sun is up, but there was rain the night before and the breeze can’t decide whether to be warm or cool.

No Guts, No Glory: Day Three of the 7th Sea 2nd Edition Kickstarter wife’s present pledge drive.




goal-thermometer-new Much better day yesterday.  In fact, $400 out of $500 makes it a qualified success; I have a limited but reliable income stream that would guarantee whatever shortages remain.  My general thanks for everybody who contributed (you’ll all get personal ones later) .So… I guess that’s gonna get Mrs. Lane’s favorite 7th Sea character officially into 7th Sea Canon. Which is awesome.

…But, and to quote the lovely and experienced Mrs. Marion Ravenwood Williams Jones: that will get her there, but not in style.  What the hell: I never know what to get my wife for her birthday anyway.  A “full color, half-page portrait of your character in a forthcoming sourcebook, along with a full description of the character’s adventures and misdeeds” sounds like it might do the trick.  So: no guts, no glory.

The unfortunate goose egg that was Day 2 of the 7th Sea Kickstarter Valentine pledge drive.

goal-thermometerWoe! WOE! We are undone!

Yes, alas: no pledges yesterday.  I am sunk into the Stygian murk of existential despair and aggravated mopery.  …Which apparently primarily means “the action of committing a minor or petty offense such as loitering.”  ‘Aggravated loitering’ doesn’t really have the same ring to it, does it?  Makes me sound like some dude from the late Victorian period who just goes around complaining how his life is just like that Oscar Wilde play, man. …No, not the one about the fan.  The other one, with the cucumber sandwiches.

:pause:

So, yeah, Victorian hipsters.  Anyway, the pledge drive continues on none the less.  I shall endeavor, as they say, to persevere.
