And we are back to comics. Like I said on the patreon preview, I thought it’d cool to come back from a break in the comics by fading from black. It won’t make tons of sense for archive divers, because they’ll be able to read the last comic and then this one instantly, but I think the experience of waiting for updates definitely affects the art itself.
When I was listening to The Adventure Zone (The Balance Arc) while it was being released, it felt different when I hit the end of the episode. It was special, but tense. On a second listen, the story is more cohesive and compelling, but that tension and the special tone of the end of an episode is greatly dampened. I know there’s no wait.
Segue! If waiting isn’t your bag, you can read next week’s comic right now on patreon. Click on the cut-away panel below and be whisked away to the future.
Also, I am super happy to announce that our store is back online. The attentive among you noticed that I’d taken it down and replaced with with the old Ramen Empire Gumroad store. There was a technical issue preventing people with gmail addresses from getting their links when they bought PDFs. My good friend and resident tech wizard, Prahb, realized that this was because I was spoofing my own gmail address to send these download links.
Download links will now come from a nifty new shop.yesthievescan.com address. I’ve gone ahead and put all the Arcana Check splat books up there as “Pay What You Want,” so head on over and stress test the heck out of this for me.
While I’m talking about the store, I want to point out that we’re doing a limited run of the campaign map from Issue #1 & #2. We’ve made 150 of them. That’s all of them that we’ll ever make. They’re glossy, heavy-duty photo-quality paper posters, 2′ by 3′. Scope it out while you’re over at the store grabbing PDFs, or check it out right here:
