      Rich Burlew said "I'm going to tell you now when the next update will be. The next update will be on February 22, 2017, the five-year anniversary of the end of the drive. I'll make a post that day even if I haven't finished O-Chul or a wallpaper or anything." Clearly this was a lie.

      Not to mention the tweet that a Wall Paper was being made right now implies that the O-Chul PDF has not been made (otherwise a new wall paper would be saved until the future to placate the backers later). Yet another example of poor time management caused by the change to the new art style.

      Maybe the philidelphia inquirer and daily news should be informed of this? If you know people in them, contact them.

      Woo! New monsters for every season!

      Question... where can we download spring and summer?

      This is completely ridiculous. We have been waiting five years for something which won't be what we asked for because it will be in a different art style which nobody wanted when they pledged money (and inconsistent with the previous sets of minis in that particular case). An art style which has in turn caused larger delays to both the comic and fulfilment of the kickstarter than any thumb injury, real or fictitious (and there is evidence of both) could ever accomplish. All because Mr Burlew does not want to continue the story and is only doing it because he wants to finish what he started (he has said that he changed the art style because otherwise output would be slower because he didn't want to do it and that sometimes he only updates because it's been a week since he did the last comic).

      Rich Burlew, if you see this message, either get a life coach to sort out your appalling work ethic or publish all your notes and future plot lines for the Order of the Stick in your next update and move on to a new story which you will have more investment in than Order of the Stick. Because you can't continue as normal.

      Rich, I formally release you from any obligation you have to me. I do not expect to see the.....you're free as far as I'm concerned. I'll buy your books. I promise. Just make good content.

      I hope whatever happened to you is temporrary

      I'm sorry but I'm not sensing much love for the "loyal fans" who supported this and who have been waiting well over four years (not with a patience package) and have not even had the courtesy of an email or update for well over six months.

      Any chance on an update? Even if it's just a "still alive" update?

      Any chance for an update, even if it's I got 1% of one thing worked on? Just to know the Kickstarter is still in your mind. August '15 to Feb '16 is a long time between updates.

    16. Spencer Nelson on February 14, 2016

      yeah...know he's probably still swamped though

    17. Christopher Moss on January 25, 2016

      So just out of curiosity, anyone else still waiting for their reward?

    18. Jason on January 19, 2016

      x monster minis summer pdf
      x haleo and julelan pdf
      x uncivil servant - belkar backer1 pdf
      x spoiler alert - therkla backer2 pdf

      still waiting for:

      monster minis autumn pdf
      monster minis winter pdf
      how the paladin got his scar - o-chul pdf
      julio scoundrel pdf
      dim sun pdf

      Just got my Whole Story and Box of Crayon! And it's awesome!

    25. Derek Tucker on December 22, 2015

      It has been a long time since the update. And a long time since any progress on promised rewards. Especially considering how well this project was funded, I expect more than what has been delivered so far and am beginning to be disappointed in Rich Burlew's follow through on his promises. I might feel differently if the comic was updated more regularly. But even that is sporadic. Please, Rich, step up and do what you promised. And give us an update.

      Huzzah! My crayon drawing arrived today and I couldn't be happier - a nice reversal of the damsel in distress trope - Elan is tied to a tree guarded by a dragon and Haley is coming to the rescue in her usual direct (ie arrow firing) fashion. Fantastic. Thanks Rich. Well worth the wait.

      You could just look at the last Workometer to see that spring/summer are completed and autumn has started to being made.

      I can't seem to remeber, or find, how many "monster for every seasons" there are out at the moment. Is it just spring and summer?

    41. Christian Steudtner on May 5, 2015

      It Kinari: I don't think Rich has any control about whether a backer is receiving updates via mail or not. If your settings are correct (i.e notifications on for the email address you expect them on) and you still don't get them, you should contact Kickstarter/your email provider about it.

    42. Missing avatar

      theangelJean on May 4, 2015

      Kinari, try checking your notification settings? Under "Me" in the top right corner of the page, the Notifications page in the drop down menu has a section for "Projects You Back" which allows you to change settings for each project individually.

      Hey Rich, thank you so much for your amazing work so far! Just wondering, what should we do if we stop receiving update emails? I never unsubscribed nor have I changed my email but I haven't gotten anything since Update #65 for some reason. I totally didn't realize this until today when a friend mentioned the Therkla PDF, which I never saw. I've checked my spam and trash and I don't see anything. Is there any way to get back on the email list? Thanks!

    44. Mikael Hansson on April 28, 2015

      yay! for updates. I have just started a RPG using the paper miniatures, and they where immensely popular!
      Would love to have more of them for characters

    45. Christian Steudtner on April 27, 2015

      Thanks for the warning! ;-)

      I sincerely appreciate even the smallest update.

    46. Rich Burlew Creator on April 27, 2015

      Hey guys--

      This is a mini-update about when the next update is coming. I have a few more crayon drawings that I want to get to the post office, and I have a wallpaper partially finished that I need to completely finish. Probably not this week, but maybe next week if all goes well.

      Thanks!

    47. Sarah Vee on April 7, 2015

      @Steve Ames - looks like the project you linked to (and another by the same creator) has been canceled/deleted...

    48. Steve Ames on April 6, 2015

      Mr Burlew, https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/441395185/heff-the-hig-pig-childrens-book-just-waiting-to-be… is using art from your Kickstarter, the thanks for pledging. Wasn't sure if you gave permission this is the only way I know to maybe let you know. If anyone sees this and has a more direct line to you, I hope they'll pass it on.
