Kitsunemori on sale!

As I expected, no payment for my book materialized by the end of the deadline I set. I actually didn’t have any hope of it happening; these people have been leading me on for a year and a half, so it’s time to make good on my threat: as soon as I have some time, Kitsunemori will be on sale through my store section, at a lower price than it sells on online stores.

Now… should I go the extra mean step and actually advertise it on PW ads on RPG-related sites?

[EDIT] Well, it’s up now; get it while it’s hot! :)

Up and running

I’m officially a member of the team now, times two! I finally have my site redone and completely switched to Spider Forest, as well as officially joined Palace in the Sky. And all just in time for my birthday! Though the best present will be getting to not worry about php and html tomorrow. Thank you very much KEZ, Ran and MV for all your help. I would be lost without you.

Go EE, after 5 years finally on a nicer server, and in about 50 comics will reach the 1000 mark. A good year indeed!

Hitting them were it hurts

A year and a half ago, I wrote half of a RPG book called Kitsunemori for a small company called Dog Soul Publishing, mostly the rules part as it was a d20 (D&D) add-on, plus outlined the second half with the worldbuilding stuff, which I was unable to write due to time constraints. I also did 12 illustrations for the book, one of them the cover image.

So far, I’ve only seen $100, and that only covers 5 illustrations, let’s not mention the royalties, as the book won an honorable mention at last year’s Ennies Awards.

So, as I finished the last sections of Nahast’s new digs here at SF, it ocurred to me that I could sell my PDF author’s copy through my webcomic. Still, my very annoying personal ethics won and I sent an email to the publishers, a husband-and-wife team, telling them of my intentions, and setting a deadline for a reply (on several occasions, weeks or months went by before they replied to my enquiries). This morning I got an answer from the wife half of the company, telling me she’ll have some money for me by the end of next week, deposited in my PayPal account or as a donation in Nahast’s tip jar.

I still plan to sell the book on my own if the pay is not satisfactory. I gave them plenty of leniency after their last (and only) payment, but I kind of need every cent I can scrounge up.

And yes… I’m a bit cranky… Full moons screw up my sleep cycle and this month was a “You Will Toss and Turn for Eternity” day… °_°

On the progression in technology….

While doing some tests for a project I’m involved with, I got thinking about the progression of 3d stuff for the hobbyist.  So as a way of putting things into contrast, I’m going to put up three images, two from 2005 and one from 5 minutes ago.  The first two are from Keenspace Summer, and Keenswim from back then…

And now for five minutes ago…

Things have sure come a long way in 3-4 years haven’t they?
