Glad to see you started adding Half-Orcs to the class pages. :)
All I ever really wanted was reprints of the earlier volumes so I could have them at an affordable price. Everything else is a bonus.
I was in the Design Museum in London today and it mentions kickstarter as a way to fund people to make things, that they have designed. It has a number of categories, including comics, where it lists the number of campaigns (8000+) the number successfully funded (4000+) and the all time highest campaign, The Order of the Stick Reprint Drive.
Then I got this e-mail on the tube home.
Eerie ... I was just needing some giant spiders, scanned through the spring and summer AMFES collections and confirmed my recollection that there weren't any there. "Hey," I thought to myself, "I should check and see if the autumn collection came out, and I missed the update."
See, this is what I get for not obsessively checking my e-mail hourly for kickstarter updates from Rich. :)
I had no idea it is nearly 5 years! I love all the comics and reread the books repeatedly, it just never occurred to me.
Thanks, Rich, for the updates and a Happy New Year to you and everyone else here.
You've filled in over 10 circles since your last report and I'm glad to hear that the originally pledged O-Chul story is nearly done. You've got over a year before Winter 2017/18 ends. Getting that done would be my new year's resolution for you to do next year. My one for you this year would be try to get as many of the paid for extras done as possible. I'm thinking of the Mystery Box, the last backer story and the non-patience crayon drawings. I'm due a patience drawing but I'm happy to wait until next year. After all, I haven't even finalised which characters will feature.
Wow! I may be a little strange but that is one of the best Christmas presents for me. :) Thank you!
Thanks for the New Year gift. More monsters! These will be used in my D&D 5th Edition game
Thanks for sticking with project (pun intended). It's projects like this that more than make up for the failed ones.
Sometimes I wonder why the community around this particular Kickstarter remains in general so supportive and positive, considering the protracted 5+ year fulfillment timeline. I think the answer is that like myself, most people are approaching all of the remaining deliverables as nice additional bonuses on top of stuff that I paid for. I got my print comic book and sticker sheet long ago, and any PDFs that occasionally show up in my email I react to as a pleasant surprise.
Which is just to say, I appreciate that Rich is still working away at this and continues to chip away at fulfilling the (let's be honest, quite ambitious) long list of stretch goals this Kickstarter generated. Look forward to an update in February, big or small.
Also, I really like the idea of picking a day in advance for a post! I hope more kickstarters adopt that idea.
Ditto what Alfredo says. A masterlist of all the links would be an awesome (in the figurative and literal sense) 5 Year Anniversary post.
Hi Rich, Thanks for all the hard work. :) Hope you are having a great day!
Hey all, some of you may have noticed that the Line Art file was unusually large at 1.2 GB after being unzipped. I've figured out the problem and updated the files on the server. Just download them again and they should be a more reasonable file size. You'll know you have the newer ones because they'll say "_v2" on the end of the file name. Thanks!
Why is the Autumn Set of Monster Mini's noodle people instead of stick figures? It's inconsistent with the previous sets. Shouldn't the four sets have a consistent art style? I didn't pay $10 for noodle people. I paid for stick figures and so did your fans, especially any with mental conditions like OCD who will likely have anxiety because they're not the consistent style. This is especially bad as you have included the much criticised "Underbite Xykon" as his mini. Surely they'd have been quicker to draw too?
Great, thanks for the quick reply! I think that's the one I was missing. Still think that it would be a good idea to create eventually a repository of all the rewards links for easy access.
Now, to check some monsters...
Woohoo! Adorable folded monsters!
Sorry, that #44 was just the line art version for Sprint. The color editions were in update #38.
@AlfredoTarancon: This is the third monster set; the previous ones were in updates #44 and #65. I'll probably do a repost when all four seasons are finished.
Always happy to see a new book! It's great to find a mail from this project. Downloading now :D
One thing... with 5 years in the making, could you make a post with all the materials in one place? I have the feeling I'm, missing things...
For example, how many monsters manuals are there supossed to be? 2? 3 with this one?
Thanks for your hard work, please take care of yourself and don't overexert yourself (: Happy new year!
Woot! Keep up the great work!
Am likewise amazed that it's been five years. Am looking at the full set of signed books on my shelf and have fond memories of my first Kickstarter, that just keeps on giving! (Have also purchased the pdfs from Gumroad to avoid inflicting wear and tear on the physical books.) Happy new year Rich and to all the OOTS fans still haunting this KS page!
Rich, you're the most dedicated project creator I've ever seen on Kickstarter. Thanks for sticking with it.
Five years?? Wow, it's the Kickstarter that just keeps giving! :)
wow, five years already? That's amazing! Thanks for all your great work :)
