This is almost not even a full update, but, first thing's first: There is a new wallpaper, but I am not attaching the picture of it to this update because it's based on a panel from OOTS #1000, which came out last night. If, for some reason, you haven't yet read OOTS #1000, go over to Giant in the Playground and do that right now. When you're done, you can head to the Wallpaper page there and check out the new wallpaper.
In other news: OOTS #1000! I hope everyone enjoys it and everything that's going on in the comic these days. I will be the first to admit that I didn't get very much Kickstarter work done in the last month or so, as I was focused on getting the main strip up to this point without too many delays—so the Workometer is going to be a bit anemic. Sorry about that.
I wouldn't even normally do an update at this stage except that I was able to dovetail the wallpaper and regular comic so nicely. And hey, everyone tells me that they want regular communications even if I haven't finished anything new, so...here you go!
There's one other announcement that you probably already saw on the site—and won't affect most of you because you already bought the paper books during the Kickstarter. But there was a small contingent of backers among you who wanted only digital material, rejecting even the refrigerator magnet to which they were entitled with a $10 pledge. To those people, I would like to mention that, after many requests from readers, I have begun releasing the existing OOTS books as PDF files (at that link) starting with Dungeon Crawlin' Fools and On the Origin of PCs. If you're a digital ascetic who eschews physical objects, you can now finally enjoy these previously paper-only products.
OK, that's it for this semi-update. See you next time!
