So Danielle and I have to go away until Monday(ish), Sept 12(ish). I was determined to finish the page before we left, but today has been all about laying in bed moaning the moans of the ouched. I was and am still quite ill. Which will make this weekend interesting. Anyways, I REALLY don't want to have you folks wait until mid September for this page. So I'm doing something I don't really do and posting it without colour and even without a lot of the inking. This is a big page. I've been laying the groundwork for this very moment for over a decade. I hope you like it. Also, I won't be able to live stream on September 9th. As always, thanks for reading. -Tarol

Here's the most recent stage of the live stream schedule... Mondays ('try not to die' day) - 2:00 PM PST EDIT: I won't be running any old D&D stuff today. I'll have to wait until next Monday to start that. Today's stream will just be drawing. I dug up boxes, binders and briefcases containing a lot of my homemade D&D adventures. Some of them dating back over 30 years. Periodically, I'll take a break from drawing, and run the chatroom through simplified bits of my old dungeon crawls. See if you can do better than the adventurers who went through them back in the 80s and 90s. Warning: Some of these adventures that I'll be using, are really bad. They date back to when I was 10 years old. Wednesdays (theme not yet established) - 2:00 PM PST Fridays ('free loot' day') - 2:00 PM PST Fridays are when I'll run the Giveaway Clock. When that thing counts down to zero, I'll randomly select someone in the chatroom and mail them a piece of Goblins merchandise. Thanks! -Tarol

I'll be going live at 2:00 PM PST today. Untitled-1 I'll be drawing and at various points throughout the stream, giving away some Goblins tshirts. So come and hang out with other awesome folks. This is a great place to ask me questions and share your opinions about the comic. Or you can just lurk silently and see if you win a tshirt. XD The streaming schedule is now... Mondays - (starting time not yet established) Wednesdays - (starting time not yet established) Fridays - 2:00 PM PST Thanks for being awesome! -Tarol

Live Boop I haven't made the official announcement yet, but there will now be a regular schedule for my live drawing. The streaming days will be... Monday/Wednesday/Friday (I'll work out the best times for each stream asap) Tonight's stream is starting crazy late and this won't be the norm. Tonight I'm (finally) finishing the newest Goblins page. However, the visuals of this page are not very spoilery. It's the dialogue that'd be spoilery, and you won't see that on the stream. Warning: I have gotten a comically small amount of sleep in the last few days, and I know from experience, that I can seem a little... intoxicated if I'm sleep deprived enough. I've made a fool of myself before (more than usual even :P ) so to avoid this tonight, I'll be fairly toned down. I'm happy to answer questions, etc while I'm drawing. -Tarol

Two or three years ago, I ran a Kickstarter with a small gaming company called Evertide Games. Our goal was to raise $30,000 to create a Goblins card game called Goblins: Alternate Realities. We raised over $180,000 which the head of the company stole and disappeared with. Since then, I've been working two jobs. Drawing the comic and creating the card game. It's been rough and it feels surreal to say this, but I'm seriously almost done the card game. So I've been spending the last couple weeks burning through the last of the work on the game. I know this sucks for those of you wanting the comic to update, but just imagine... in (hopefully) another couple weeks, I'll be working ONE job for the first time in years! The comic can update faster! I can do crazy things like leave the house for non-essential reasons! So I've hired NaniRoxy (who happens to have his own webcomic called SwitchOut) to write and draw two guest pages for me. While these pages aren't canon, they're gorgeous and awesome. The second guest page should be appearing on or around July 14th. After that, I'll be back to work on the comic with the work on the card game (again, hopefully) behind me. As far as the release date for the game, that's still unknown. I've been in talks with people and I'm optimistically hoping to be able to provide a copy of the game to the backers who were promised one all those moons ago. I'm also hoping that the game will be available to purchase for everyone else. I've gotten my hands on the Kickstarter backer list (which was tough, since that legally belonged to Evertide as the KS was in their name) and if/when the time comes, I'll start the task of going through the thousands of names to make sure that the information is up to date and accurate. If you've moved, don't sweat it. We'll find each other. We'll make this happen and get you your game. For now, the focus is on finishing the artwork (which I'm proud to say, is hundreds of cards covered in original art), playtesting and design of the game. Later on, will come the 'hunt down every backer I owe a copy of the game to' phase. I want to stress that nothing is guaranteed at this point, but it's looking good. It's looking like this might actually happen. What amazes me so much, is the overwhelming support I've gotten from the Goblinites. When I held my breath and made the announcement that the money was stolen, I honestly thought that might be the end of my career. I expected a lot of hate and anger but instead, I got love and support. This is the reason why I've been working on this game like I have. The years of effort I've been putting into it is a direct reflection of your support, trust and patience. And now that I'm almost done this phase of the process, I'm genuinely proud of what this game has become. It's creativity and fun over profit and product. It's something I'm honestly excited about handing over to you. Thank you. -Tarol NaniRoxy's Twitter Tarol's Twitter
