Hams, hags, and troll fats! Sorcery and savagery! Talking cats! Loot! RPG is a fantasy webcomic ready to enter the world of print.
Thanks to all my awesome backers and everyone spreading the word, I've met my fundraising goal in only 16 hours! Unbelievable! My mind is still blown...but I've got even bigger plans for RPG, so I've set a new fundraising goal of $10,000! Watch the videos below to find out more!
CURRENTLY IN OUR ADVENTURE...
Our Warrior has successfully conquered the ferocious Gatekeeper and defeated a rolling boulder trap on her way up the Wizard's Tower! However, the Wizard has now unleashed a powerful magic blast on Level 3...
Become a BACKER * to help decide the Warrior's fate!
Level 1: THE GATEKEEPER
Level 2: THE ROLLING BOULDER
* Becoming a backer immediately enrolls you in this Kickstarter RPG, where you can help determine how the story plays out! You will also gain the ability to see the true ending of each scenario!
RPG is a high-fantasy webcomic that pays tribute to the conventions found in well-loved roleplaying games from yesterday and today. The comic follows Alyth, a farm girl who finds herself cast in the unlikely role of world-saving hero when her village is destroyed. She journeys all across the land of Hyberia and battles fearsome monsters, loots every dead body she can, acquires party companions, visits taverns, levels up, and completes quests both large and small as she attempts to foil the forces of evil.
Plain and simple: I want to bring RPG into the world of print and if I meet my Kickstarter goal, I can make that dream come true. Pocket Hams and Troll Fats: RPG Collected, Volume One will be 150 pages of RPG goodness, comprising pages from the website as well as the story, previously found exclusively in the pages of Womanthology, that details B'lue's origin, introduces new party members, and much more!
The money raised will go toward printing and production of Pocket Hams and Troll Fats AS WELL AS a brand-new 48-page sketchbook full of drawings, secrets, and lots of peeks into the making of RPG. While the $2500 will help me achieve that goal, I've got even bigger goals and dreams in the works should I surpass that amount: I'd love to expand RPG further, launching into the realms of animation, gaming and beyond! There are limitless stories I can tell and untold avenues to pursue with these characters that I love so much, so thank you for helping me make it possible.
The Level 1 Gatekeeper has been defeated! Onward to Level 2 and...
Level 2 has been unlocked, and so has the reward!
