Belfry is forgetful, accident-prone, and not really ready for responsibility, but a snap decision to take in a young, abandoned creature will change her life forever.
In Treehollow, Belfry is well known as the bat with a heart of gold and penchant for accidents. All the residents love her and fear her in equal measures. So of course when she literally stumbles across a strange creature who seems to be some kind of abandoned kit, she wants to care for it… but is she truly up to the task? Or will it die a horrifying, accident-related death?
Tamberlane is rated PG for non-sexual nudity, comedic violence, and references to salty language. It's an ongoing webcomic which you can read here for FREE!

Risks and challenges
The comic is already done, the files are already completed. Make That Thing is incredibly experienced with fulfillment and I've finished 5 previous successful crowdfunding campaigns.
That said, I can foresee two possible delays:
1) I have chronic pain and fatigue and sometimes I can't get to things as quickly as I'd like. Thankfully this is mitigated almost entirely by putting most of the work on Make That Thing! But I do still have some hand in fulfillment, namely to sign & sketch books, and to mail boxes of Book 1 to MTT.
2) As with any project like this, manufacturing can be delayed. Some of this is so that we can get the best possible products to you. And some of this is just human error. Rest assured, we'll alert you of any delays!
Still, I did successfully fulfill the first book Kickstarter with fairly minimal delays, so we should be good this time around too!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
