Nov 7, 2017 - Say What?

Postby WearsHats » Tue Nov 07, 2017 9:27 pm

Hmm. Not the epic battle I was expecting. I guess that was a minor monster, not a warped kilk or pit demon or anything.

Thunt says next update is back to the GAP.

Also, there will be a big announcement tomorrow about the animated series.

Well, at least he's not all MinMax-y (early version at least) and asking if they at least got full XP for the encounter, since the monster fled. :lol:

I liked the world building with the Suck Badger, but I think that the dialogue regarding Bowst's curse was unnecessary.

Aaaaand the surpise announcement? They've moved the animated funding from a place (Kickstarter) where if you fail your goal, you don't get no monies - to a place where you can (IndieGoGo).

They have no plan beyond pizza table talk, their funding projections show zero research, Hunt can't or won't keep any kind of schedule, and you fans have already been ripped off twice (Temps Fate final page, anyone? CCG? No? Hmmmm...).

Who wants to bet they take the money and run? And you never see a single cell of animation. Any takers? I'm looking to make some bread on this debacle too, you know.

That's a load of crap. Yes, Indiegogo allows flexible funding. But they're not doing that. It will still be a fixed funding campaign. They're moving because Indiegogo has promised them better support and publicity, to help bring in more backers.

Thunt has spent the last four years working at his own expense to make up for Evertide having taken the money and run. Including from him. Matt and Phil are experienced professionals with reputations to maintain if they want to keep working.

I know Thunt thinks he's being clever and "world building" by having multiple characters say things like "sonovacrap" and "scwillion" and so on.

Just feels like it would work better to have those kinds of things are character specific quirks, not society level common phrases,

When you read it, it doesn't feel like world-building, it feels like an author who doesn't know how to make his characters sound different and have their own voice.


And Thunts better than that.


But *shrugs*

RocketScientist already gave you the link to the first tweet.

I'll quote the rest here too:

You Kickstarter/IndieGoGo rant has also been rebuffed already, and you could've had it easier doing so in the Goblins:Animated thread, instead of in a comic update page.

I'm honestly surprised that Thunt went for KS in the first place, after he had such a hard time getting the backer list from them after the Evertide incident.

I bet the guy who took Thunt's money and ran is laying broke in an alley somewhere by now...

As for today's page... Ward's right, Bowst. Might want to stop triggering that curse until you knock yourself unconscious and fall into the pit...

He does have a point though. Take it from someone who really never gave a single flying fuck about Thunt personally or all the stupid drama that surrounds him, and only ever cared about the free webcomic thing: dude seems sketchy as fuck. And weird on top of it.

That includes Thunt.

These rules have been made clear. Further violations will have consequences, and making throwaway accounts will not help.

This is a lot of chat, but may lead to Bowst breaking. (remember the forecastings Fumbles gave?)
Nobody on the team went out of their way to help Bowst.
I would be very grumpy in his place too.
And on top of that, he has to punch himself everytime when he uses the word "what". Which is not helpful, when you want to repeat "what" others said when using sarcasm to point out how much they helped him.
And as a reply, he learns that Ward would even love to see him die.

Yes, this Bowstring is now bow-taut. And if you tauten it a bit more, it breaks.

Me fears this page is mainly used to show that the snapping is imminent.
And it may lead to Forgath getting into serious trouble (as if falling from a bridge was no serious trouble), hence Fumbles is so sorry for Minmax.

1) I'm with AXIS about the Schwillion thing, but I really like that everyone says "Sonofacrap." Maybe I just don't like Schwillion. :p

2) I'm surprised "throwaway" is the first throwaway account...

3) I kind of [read: really] hate Bowst. I don't know why Idle has stuck with him as long as she has, as all he does is complain and "woe is me!" If he breaks in the next page, I won't shed a single tear when Forgath shoves him into the hole. He's really going to need some major character growth for his eventual demise to matter, IMO.

If he dies before meeting Minmax and MM isn't the one to kill him, I'll be quite sad.

Bowst has to die.
Narrative dictates it.

Forgath then has to do his curse duty adding to the tension that is forgath in love but with a goblin girl.

That might even be the love fueling hate prophecy part that everyone thinks is tailored to minmax and kin (wouldn't that be a nice Thunt-Style twist?)

If that happens: remember someone called it!

Someone is talking about Idle. She isn't a goblin, but was partially cursed to look like one. Plus rabbit.

I thought she was an elf. If you go back to where Fumbles nearly kills the elf girl, you can see that elf ears look similar to goblin ears.

Idle is an Elf. panel 4. That should end the discussion.
(Although the rest of the page will fire any discussions up, because apparently the Cursewalk changed her more than just some visible Ears. - So, please discuss away.)

Yeah, okay... Elf that looks Goblin-ish...
The point is: its again unconventional, interspecies love.
And for a stereotypical dwarf an elf seems almost as unlikely to fall in love as a goblin.
The point stands still valid: love triangle that gets resolved as bowst breaks, or he breaks because of it. is the love that fuels hate.

He thinks that Bowst is in love with Idle.
He guesses, that because Forgath and Idle are imtellectually such a better match, Forgath might take over the duty of "daily sex" with Idle (one of he curses).
He guesses that this love between Idle and Forgath fuels hate of Bowst on Forgath, and that this leads to Bowstring breaking.


Would be a very different resolve ofmthe forecasts that previous suggestions on this forum.

I'll see if someone is correct...

So I've been wrong before, but at this it is very hard for me to buy that the serpent prophecy doesn't refer to Kin and Minmax. I know that prophecy always turns out to mean the opposite of what it seems to mean, but not only does the prophecy seem to have been fulfilled, Fumbles said it directly to Minmax then said he was so sorry. Was he apologizing for the pain Minmax will feel when Forgath kills Bowst? And if Forgath kills Bowst over a love triangle, would that be an unreliable bowstring? Hmm.
