Welcome to our Role Playin Gamer Kickstarter to Kickstart Role Playin Gamer the Webcomic http://www.roleplayingamer.com the ongoing Console Rpg Webcomic about the main characters and their Role Playin Adventures and their love for Role Playin Video Games, Role Playin Book Games, Role Playin Card Games and Role Playin all around, an endless world of Role Playin.
Our Kickstarter Goal:
To Fund the Creation of the Webcomic Strips for a year and an Art Print Comic Book 100 pages(100 at start - 130 pages depending on Stretch Goals) with Role Play Section like many D&D books.
We want to Kickstart a fund for a year or more of Web Comic creation mostly 3 panel gamer like strips, a first run print book of the web comics and bonus creator artwork ranging from 100 pages to 130+ full color with some Black and White Drawings and other random media if we reach our stretch goals, web maintenance and design, back end server administration, and the occasional advance web comic video games, videos and more web comic media forms with bonus digital interactive goodies including random flash interactive comics and much much more of the main stream popular 3 panel gamer strip type Web Comics for many classic console RPGs games and series and many more RPGs video games, ccgs, D&D type rpgs, freeform and so much more.
Check out some of our strips, see more at http://www.roleplayingamer.com
We also want to produce an artbook with all the comics in it from the first year about the first 50 or so comics, and some more extras bonus comics from Mike and Gywneth and behind the scenes artwork on Role Playing Artwork, Production and Development Artwork, Creator notes and more, a real collectors item as it's the first edition print of our webcomic, it will become a rare piece of memorabilia, a one of a kind. They will both be signed and given a bit of a personalized thank you in the book for your pledge for the continuing creation of our webcomic.
Our basic base line goal is $5000 to meet the base line costs, because we enjoy making the series so much even that is enough to fund the Comic for a year and print a book. We would do it for free but it costs money and takes time away from earning money not making webcomics but it would be more fun to make webcomics for a living.
We hope with our intensives and stretch goal rewards, we can raise more and increase the quality and quantity of the webcomics and print book.
About The Webcomic:
"Role Playin Gamer" Role Playin Gamer has been in development since 2007 I have a ton of it developed, lots of art over the years, lots of possible story lines, video game concepts, hundreds of RPG web comic jokes mostly about console rpgs but all other rpgs too, video games, print book RPGs, and cards etc. I want to get Role Playin Gamer Kickstarted since it's awesome like old school 8bit and 16bit games and even still as awesome as the latest rpgs.
Role Playin Gamer the Webcomic is the latest collaboration of Web Comic Greats Mike Kirouff of Gamer Dater - http://www.gamerdater.com and Gwyneth Landale of Geeky Girl Comics - http://geekygirlcomics.tumblr.com/ Role Playin Gamer the Webcomic is a comedic webcomic about console rpgs mostly and other rpgs and video game and more that updates multiple times a week with 3 panel strips, rpg artwork, flash games and more, we have active forms and archives of our comic plus old comics of the same great quality.
Right now we don't have a day job and hope to turn our webcomic into a paying job like many other webcomics out there, we hope with it's monthly subscriptions options, merchandise commissions and even video games, rpgs and more we can turn our hobby into a paying job.
About The Book:
Depending on interest we will run a short run print or a large print of a book of Role Playin Gamer Webcomic Book Year 1 All the comics up to date in the book with Mike's and Gywneth's notes and extra behind the scenes and additional artwork from both Mike & Gywneth, other comics from Both and extras only in the book, a true collectors item. Will be printed on soft cover bounded 100+ pages or more depending on how far we go on the Stretch Goal on high quality paper 6x9 color with some black and white drawings and more media with all the strips to date and extras as described signed by both Mike and Gwyneth. There will be a small role Playin Section like D&D for the Role Playin Gamer Universe with the ability to create your own character in the Story with various stats and have a session with your friends as someone DMs the story based on the guidelines stated in the book with various original Role Playin Gamer characters and puns on old classics. $25 includes shipping in the US. $10 more $35 total for each book outside USA.
About The People Behind Role Playin Gamer:
Mike Kirouff has been writing, drawing and creating comics his whole life along with engineering other social media sites like Gamer Dater and creating Video Games like Final Phantasy 1: The Search for God & Dragoon Princess. I have been working on websites graphic design & video with many big names Mtv, EA Sports, ABC as you can see on my Design Website http://www.mikekirouff.com I have been drawing since I could hold a pencil.
My artworks have been retweeted by Wil Weaton of Startrek. and liked on Facebook by recent ISS Commander Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield.
Last year everyone got to know the mega giant Gamer Dater Mike Kirouff created, and seen as Unique Advertising such sites as Microsoft Paint Adventures and others, everyone across the internet talked about it on all popular forums, Penny Arcade, Something Awful and more about this awesome new Video Game Dating site and its unique amazing Advertising. There's even been some great reviews on the internet about Gamer Dater lately.
Gywneth Landale helps write stories and draw for Role Playin Gamer and also has her own webcomic as well, http://geekygirlcomics.tumblr.com and others coming out. Gwyneth is a writer and illustrator but mostly helps with writing on Role Playin Gamer and help Mike with this comic and others as well as Gamer Dater and other websites.
We have a wide range of stretch goals if we should get more Pledges than our basic goal if we can push our initial $5000.00 goal
$5000 - Thee 3 panel web comics updates a week, 2 in Color and 1 in Black and White and at least one RPG related art piece every two weeks at least and 1 flash multimedia / interactive / video game rpg every 2 months for a year. PLUS the 100 Page Art / Comic / Role Playin Book. PLUS BONUS THANK YOU DIGITAL HIGH RES KICKSTARTER RPG POSTER TO ALL PACKAGES!
$9000 - Three 3 panel webcomics updates a week, 3 in color and at least one related rpg artwork a week, or simple webcomic and at least one simple flash multimedia video, interactive or video game piece a month for a year and 15 bonus pages to make a 115 page Role Playin Gamer Comic Art Book Of Year One
$12,000 - Thee 3 panel webcomic updates a week in full color, two related rpg art pieces a week and at least 1 flash piece a month for 1 year PLUS The Role Playin Webcomic Artbook Year 1 to have 30 bonus pages in it bringing the content to 130 pages with extra creation content, bonus comics plus more AND Final Phantasy 1 the Role Playin Gamer Video Game RPG will have additional bonus content and become an advance online Role Playin Game with Online features similar to MMORPGs.
It would be great as to reach as high as $12k for a stretch goal to provide a real fund for the creators to create the comic for a year, artbook, games and more and create a bigger print book, it's by no means alot of money for a year of producing a webcomics full time, much of it is going to the production of the books, shirts and other reward package item bonuses, taxes and Kickstarter + Amazon fees but also to the production of the comic online and it's still a great start and can really fund the production of great webcomics of real quality for a year and better then being not be able to focus on the comic and on other projects to earn money, so it would be really wonderful and awesome to reach the higher stretch goals, that is why there is much more content on the higher rewards. It would be great for the creators too as they are wishing to make webcomics their professional occupation and have the webcomics feed them for a year as both are unemployed now and trying to freelance and make webcomics and video games their full time jobs for a career.
$20,000 TO BE UNLOCKED!
$1,000,000 Purchase of a Starship to take over the universe! (Perhaps Not But We Can Dream ^_^ )
