It's been a while since my last entry. Working on this and that, dealing with this and that, looking for this and that. You know, busy busy.

But what's everyone's opinion on kickstarter? I've heard some people love it, some people hate it, but I've never really payed attention to either argument before.

The reason I'm asking is because I'm penning a tabletop RPG and I'm wondering if I should go pro with it, kickstart some cash, and hire an artist for the rule book.

The RPG is a simplified DnD based project, using a d10 (10 sided dice) as the main dice for skill/ability rolls. It's set in an alternate 1950, where in 30 years ago a cult of magic users opened a portal that lead a race of sentient insects to invade earth. Neither side won, but the bulk of the insects withdrew the bulk of their forces. Small bands roam everywhere, though, and mankind is few in number and struggling to rebuild. Earth culture is still visually reminiscent of 1920's flapper culture, with elements of dieselpunk.

But I'm not sure if I ultimately want to do a kickstarter to produce pro, or if I just want to go indie and produce the rules for free, potentially without art or maps yet. I do consider the art to be an important part of a tabletop game, as it helps set the mood a lot better imo.

I'll have you know I've been likened to a chubby Chris Hemsworth (as Thor). :3

You don't suck Vacuity, just because you don't have an avatar doesn't mean you're a terrible artist. You're a master artist.
