    The Order of The Stick Kickstarter Thread

    For those of you not aware, The Order of the Stick, the best webcomic that puts stick figures in a D&D inspired world, has a kickstarter project going. The general progress of it is amazing! From the looks of it, The Giant will be able to reprint every OOTS book in the library and then some!

    Awesome, thanks for pointing this out. I only ever read the comic by following links from ENW so I didn't even know this was going on!

    Yeah I've been following this since day 2 and it's nothing short of awe-inspiring. From having an initial aim of reprinting the third volume (War & XP's) with a fundraising goal of $57.750 for a minimum size print run, the fund now stands at a staggering $413,000+ at the time of writing, enough for Rich Burlew to be able to put the entire OOTS collection (all 4 compilations + the 2 print-only prequel books) back into print.

    For just a $10 contribution you get a Roy fridge magnet, and 7 pdf mini-stories of 8-12 pages or so each (1 initial one, 3 more from the fund hitting bonus story goals along the way and 3 from the $1250 pledge rewards all being bought). Pretty amazing value.

    And it still has 18 days to go!!

    It's astounding. I'm hoping that he somehow hits $1M, although I don't think that's possible. But look at the trajectory on those graphs!

    Is there any chance of this making it's way onto the EN World front page? I mean as news of the gaming community goes, this is a pretty impressive achievement. As for hitting the $1 million mark, I wouldn't rule it out and sure would be nice to do it, cos that would take this to the number 1 spot for the most funded project in Kickstarter's history!

    Can't do it myself as I'm just off to Warwick Castle for a medieval banquet for a friend's 40th birthday. But if @Piratecat or someone wants to post it (in text sixe = 3) on the front page, go for it. Just post a new thread in the news forum; needs an admin, I think. Try to catch typos before posting, as it pushes out to the mobile apps pretty quickly sometimes and edits don't get updated on them.

    The images work fine for me, it's kind of fun seeing the mini-comic that comes as part of each new graph, esp since a couple times Rich has posted a new graph we've actually been off the top of the previous one. Closing in on the half a million mark now!
