About this project

We have a stretch goal :D

First of all thank you all for supporting The Oswald Chronicles, all of you are awesome :D Okay, this is a first for us. The project is doing well and we want it to continue doing so, so we’re going to be offering our very first stretch goal, which will be unlocked at $2500 and with another 10 days to go I think it’s both reasonable and doable. Once we reach that goal we’ll be giving to all backers a new Oswald story called “What My Eyes See I Cannot Tell,” as a  PDF download, it is a prose story that takes place during Oswald’s time in dream when he is the Emperor of the Mar. So please if you can help us spread the word and make this happen. Thank you all again you’re the best :)

In the continuing saga of The Oswald Chronicles, Oswald finds himself trapped in a war between Kobolds and Orks, while discovering he is able to manipulate magical gems. An ability that only the Queen of the Orks has ever been able to do.

Each book will be limited to 250 copies and will be signed and numbered.

For the first time we will be offering virgin covers to this series. What that means is that the covers will be printed without any logos of text on them, so the art will not be obscured.

 

Note: If you wish to receive these covers for the first 3 issues but you already own the first 3 normal covers just add 15.00 to your pledge level and send me a note and I'll add them to your order.

 

Another first for us is the introduction of Scribe covers, allow me to explain: Normally Daphne does the heavy lifting with her awesome sketch covers and I always feel bad that there isn't more I can do to help out, so here was my solution a Scribe cover where I will write a segment of a new Oswald Chronicle in script or long form depending on how I feel at the moment. 

Now is this a gimmick I would say so, but it's also a chance for anyone to see my writing process at its most nascent. The excerpts you will receive will be my actual chicken scratch/scrawl and it is how I normally work when writing prose, it allows me to flow through a story easier. 

A little clarification: when I write on a computer I tend to overthink what I'm doing and I attempt to make every line perfect and this can sometimes really eat up time, but I found that by picking up a pen and a pad I can just write and not worry, of course when I have to type it all in is when all the real fun happens, no not really, but it does allow me a second go around on the story allowing me to edit as I type. 

Don't worry I will be keeping copies of the covers for transcribing. So if you think it would be fun to own a piece of my scribbling for a future tale, please feel free to pick up a copy. 

Please note that there is no guarantee that the segment you get will make it into one of my prose pieces since on rare occasions sections do get edited out as a whole, doesn't always happen but one can't be certain. 

Below is a sample :D
