Grow

JGray
By JGray

Some of you guessed it. The word of power obtained from the oddly erotic Garden of Epic Manly Poetry was, in fact, a way to grow the trees.

Except, these are trees growing on a world that's one giant tree. I suppose that makes them branches? Think about that for a little while. Or a long while. I like it when you think about Mysteries of the Arcana. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!

Just a reminder, but a publisher I work for is running a Kickstarter to fund a run of 12 books. If the project gets funded, I'm in charge of the line. So, please consider donating to it! Not only do I get paid if you do but I get paid to create books about strange topics like rains of frogs and household magical items that aren't particularly useful to adventurers! Seriously, please consider backing it. I'd really appreciate it.

See you Thursday!

Word of Power

JGray
By JGray

Due to the serial nature of webcomics, it has been a few months since we last saw the word of power. For those who don't remember, Theresa received it after making up a haiku in the Garden of Epic Manly Poetry.

There's been some speculation about what happened to the acorns the viquirrels need to help them sleep through the winter, including an idea that they sold the nuts to get some guns. They did not. The two tribes went to war because there weren't enough acorns as winter approached. If you looked closely back when Chrys and Theresa hiked across the battlefield you can see hints of the remains of the trees.

Finally, I am not someone who likes doing the whole promoting thing. I'm a horrible salesperson. But the Letters from the Flaming Crab Kickstarter could really use some help. We've stalled at about halfway to our goal. Letters from the Flaming Crab is a Pathfinder-compatible RPG line that aims to put out one book a month, each time on a different and somewhat unusual topic. If the Kickstarter gets funded we can afford to pay writers. Also, if the Kickstater funds, Flaming Crab can afford to pay the guy in charge of the line's development. That'd be me. It would be nice to get paid for my work there so, please, consider giving us a dollar or two.

Thank you! See you Monday!

A New Month Arrives! Fight!

Happy February all! I think I was in my mid-teens before I figured out how to spell that word right. February. Not Feburary or Februrary. Or something with an 'e' in it somewhere. Truth be told, I'm a terrible speller. Also, my handwriting was so bad my teachers just flat out told my parents to get me a computer.

So, Chrys's plan for peace isn't going well, is it? And Theresa's introducing a little bit of information from our world. Of course, she's overly cynical. Occasionally our peace talks do work but only after years of conflict. Look at how long it took the end the "troubles" in Ireland, for example. And while things look promising between Columbia and FARC that could all still collapse.

I'm not going to make a big speech but I will remind everyone that Flaming Crab Games is holding a Kickstarter to fund their Letters from the Flaming Crab line, which I'm in charge of. 12 Pathfinder-compatible game books, 12 unique topics. Please consider backing us. We're just over halfway towards our goal of actually being able to pay the writers and editor (which would be me).

See you Thursday!
