    Update -- 24 Hours to be become a backer and so many cool extras!

    Be sure to check out the Kickstarter for the comic if you haven't in a while. LOT of great unlocks have occurred! Myself, @Indi2 and @rild are on standby for any questions that you may have!

    Summary:
    • ALL $9 and above tiers will receive digital copies of issue #0, #1 AND #2!
    • ALL $9 and above tiers will receive a community in-game cloak unique to this campaign!
    • ALL $19 and above tiers receive a print copy of issue #2! (Excluding the full digital $34 tier for those trying to save on shipping costs).
    • ALL $19 and above tiers receive an enamel collectors pin! (Excluding the full digital $34 tier for those trying to save on shipping costs).
    • ALL $19 and above tiers will receive an in-game painting unique to this campaign!

    • NOT UNLOCKED: at $5000 (only $700ish away!) puts me back to work! I'll write up a multi-page journal of Arianna's travels in issue #0, #1 and #2 to become an additional part of comic #2! It'll be a great insight into the mind of Arianna as she flees her world with Christopher through the Rift, becomes separated from her beloved, and meets her new friend Gemma along travels in New Britannia.
    • ADD-ONS: many add-ons have been unlocked already such as patches, an alternate cover, and an 8 page process zine, and many more!
    Only 24 hours left to become a backer! It's a great time to get in on this campaign--so much value has been unlocked for those interested!

    Good question @Grimace2

    We have been thinking the cover art would be the most appropriate for the painting. However, we'll let our artist @Indi2 decide what fits best.
    Obviously we want to alter the art as little as possible. Another possibility would be one of Indi's large watercolor panels.

    oh, also . . .
    BREAKING NEWS - this just in
    • All $34 and above tiers will now receive a second (different) exclusive painting
    Happy to have the opportunity to offer another reward to our generous backers, and to see more of Indi's art inside Shroud :)

    We hope this will motivate a few more folks to pledge for Content Space and contribute their own creative ideas to this publication.

    This is approaching Extreme RAREs territory.

    There are a few in game items I can remember missing the opportunity to own (Hearth of Britannia Cabinet, some expired items from the add on store).

    I will not miss this opportunity.

    I'm voting that it be the water color of the bridge at Ardoris... very beautiful. Being a watercolor, it might fit the theme of other paintings in the game, perhaps? What'cha think, @Indi2 ?

    The iconic Ardoris bridge?

    I like that idea.

    Hey Cici! Rild is putting together a Kickstarter update in the next few days (his workload has been really heavy), but we've accomplished a lot toward printing and are in the final stretch. All of the ads have been laid out, the enamel pin is done, badge designs have been sent off, the process zine proof is currently in the mail to me for review, and all that's left is layout of a few pages in the back that we should have the final info for by Tuesday of this week (there's some sizable special bonus material that will be going into the book as well - I don't know if it's been announced yet, so I don't want to spoil anything) - then the main comic will go out for a proof for me to review (usually a few weeks on initial proof printing) and make changes to, then it's going out. :) Watch for the KS update by Tuesday as well!

    @CICI Hey there CiCi! As for a publication update, that is a VERY good question because I too am excited to get my hands on the first comic that I've ever written! @Indi2 and @rild are on the publication side of the house but the last time I talked with them they said they were on track for full on-time fulfillment. I think they just had one or two pesky physical rewards that took a little bit longer than expected to get back from the manufacturers. All digital rewards and physical rewards are coming out at the same time. I'll let @Indi2 and @rild chat about that stuff more specifically though.

    I'm JUST about to post a really COOL update on the contest thread this morning. We've picked the winners! So sometime later this morning be sure to check out...

    https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/f...ters-of-the-sota-comic-2.141391/#post-1142955

    I'll include instructions on how to receive your prizes, since some prizes come from Indi, some from me and some from Ben ;). Grats to those winners! (Working on that thread now!)

    CICI I sorta wanted everyone to see it in print first, for full effect.

    Packages will begin shipping next week!
