I’m off until next Sunday. I haven’t got the wallpapers done yet, but I’ve got the map I promised done. You can view it right here.
As you have surely noticed, there is no extra update today as the final $15 of the goal were not met in time. However, one generous fan in particular also noticed this and made sure that such a debacle will not be repeated next weekend. The goal of $250 has been met! Fortyfive predicted that it would take at least another month for this to happen and so he has torn the drive tally in half to express his displeasure. Unlike Fortyfive, though, I am quite thrilled and very grateful to all of you who donated. Forty-nine days of uninterrupted labour is the least I can do to thank you, so a few more things will be popping up in the Extras section shortly. I’ll be drawing three more wallpapers to cover the party members currently missing from that page. I’ll also be providing you with a little map of the area surrounding South Crossing, the city in which most of WSWFG has thus far taken place. No fantasy story is complete without a map, after all.
I’ll do my absolute best to have these things ready for you by next Sunday morning, as I am going on YET ANOTHER vacation to the Canadian wilderness, where internet is hard to come by. As before, updates will continue uninterrupted. Any of you playing or following Dwarf Dungeon will be disappointed though, as that WILL be going on hiatus until I return since it’s impossible to build up a buffer of a game.
Thank you once again, everyone. You guys are awesome.
As you can see, you got a Sunday update. Thanks for the donations guys! Just $35 more to finish off the drive. Will I get it before the weekend, or will I finally get a day off? We’ll see.
I’m drawing a few more wallpapers as a little gift to the readers, and I’ll see if I can come up with something else to go along with them. If you guys have any ideas for stuff you’d like as a post-drive gift in the future, send me an email or post on the forums. I’m open to suggestions!
Thank you once again, everyone!
To celebrate the 200th page of Will Save Worlf for Gold, I give you a gnome being devoured by rabid squirrels.
I’d also like to mention that although you guys have been very generous with your donations (thanks guys!), and although there is currently no real danger of failing to meet the final goal by the deadline (like two months from now), there won’t be an update this Sunday unless another $25 of donations comes in soon. You guys wouldn’t want me to be able to take a day off, would you? Of course not. That would be silly.
Finally, you might notice that the left hand sidebar has a nice-looking image instead of ugly text links now. That image will redirect you to the forums, where I’m currently running a dungeon crawl game. It’s too late to sign up to play (unless somebody drops out), but the game’s presentation makes it a bit like a user-driven comic, so give it a look if you’re into that sort of thing. Plus anybody can vote in this thread to give one of the three teams free items. Help your friends! Confound your enemies! Brush your teeth…?
Not much else to say. Thanks for reading, and extra special premium gold thanks to everyone who donated. It means a lot to me!
This last vacation wasn’t as nice. Mold in the bathroom. Accident with utility knife, stitches needed (not for me though). Oh well.
I’ve tried something different in the last panel of this page, a different colour for the door and window in this interior area. Having it black always bugged me before but I couldn’t seem to find another colour that looked really good; I think this very light blue fits though. I guess that makes up for the boring backdrops on the last few pages. I really should have made that city skyline lower. I might actually go back and correct that… we’ll see.
This post doesn’t seem to have a point so far so I guess I’ll just say thanks again to everyone who’s donated? This drive is going slower than the first one, but that’s fine. I’ve still got lots of extra pages to draw and enough money to cover my TCAF expenses. Looks like I’m going on Sunday by the way. I have no idea if anyone wants to attempt to make contact with me to say hi or kick my ass or whatever.
Thanks for reading, guys.
