Edit: The title of this blog originally called this a "trailer". That was my bad. Technically, this is not a trailer, but an animatic. Sorry about that.

For the past year or so, we've been working in secret (well, semi-secret) on Goblins the animated series. It's still a ways off from being released, but so much work has been done and those involved with this are all really excited.

The series aims to turn the comic into a professional, high quality cartoon. Co-writing it with me, are Matt King and Phil LaMarr (their names link to their IMDB pages) who will also be doing voice work in the show, along with a list of other big names voicing the various characters. Aside from Matt and Phil, I don't think I'm allowed to officially name any of the actors, the animation studio, who's doing the music, etc. At this point, I'd rather err on the side of caution since this whole thing has like... lawyers involved with contracts and percentages and lots of grown-up stuff like that.

Very soon, a sort of rough draft trailer will be going public. The animation has an unfinished look to it, but it showcases the talents of everyone involved, really well.

There is more info to come out about dates, season one, funding, etc. Follow any of us on Twitter to be kept up to date as new info comes out.

The Goblins Card Game

The reason for my slow updating lately has been because of this and The Goblins Card Game (otherwise known as Goblins: Alternate Realities) which as of yesterday, I'm super excited to finally be finished. Like 'Goblins Animated', the card game is still a ways off from going public, but after years of single handedly drawing hundreds of cards, designing, playtesting, and designing some more, I have a finished, balanced card game prototype. I know that a lot of you have a ton of questions about the game and I'm working on a webpage that will showcase the cards, the artwork, the rules, a FAQ and offer contact info.

My life is a swirly, crazy mess these days, but my goals remain...

1. Don't let down the people who are owed a copy of that game.

2. Don't let down the people who have attached their names to Goblins: Animated.

3. Don't let down the Goblins readers who have been so supportive for years.

I'm just glad that I can finally be open and public about goal number two! :)

So I'm back to working condition after my surgery. I have another one in April, but that's probably going to be super minor and won't cut into my work time. But at this point, I'm able to work without hindrance, so there's nothing stopping me from going back to posting updates every Monday. Thanks for your patience everyone and I hope you enjoy today's update. -Tarol

I had surgery on my mouth/face. I've been mostly in bed while healing. It sucks, but I'm getting better. Apologies for the lack of content. -Tarol

EDIT: The tutorial (which is over two hours long) is now up on YouTube. Due to a snow storm causing many power outages and me spending too much time this week on the card game (mostly the card game thing), there is no update today. However, I'm about to create some filler that I think some folks might enjoy. My plan is to live stream a tutorial on how to create an awesome tabletop RPG city, filled with quests and lots of stuff for the players to explore (and wreck). I will then upload that unedited tutorial onto YouTube. I'm setting up to start this right now. EDIT: I should mention that since I'm trying to create a fairly tight tutorial video, I won't be joking around or answering questions etc as much as I usually do. Though I will answer questions about the subject matter. Here's the link to the live stream. Here's the link to the YouTube video. The next Goblins page will go up on Monday, Feb 13th (and every Monday after that). Thank you! -Tarol And feel free to follow me on Twitter for the type of rambling that you could find at literally millions of other Twitter accounts!
