Ice Queen Fiction: Summer's End

July 23rd - via: kickstarter.com
So You've Died And Been Conscripted Into An Undead Army's comedic tone is probably going to be more broadly popular, but I the tragic inevitability of Summer's End is my favorite of all the fiction I commissioned for Dark Lord.  (Read More)

The Great Transcriptening

July 22nd - via: kickstarter.com
Someone pointed out to me that my videos don't have transcripts. It occurred to me this was a dumb oversight, because I read these things off of scripts in the first place. They existed as written documents before they were videos. So here is the... (Read More)

Another stretch goal come and gone. This project's middle-slump has been way less slump-y than most Kickstarters, so I think we just might make it to $10,000, and the other three light realms mentioned in the video back on the 8th: The elves of... (Read More)
