The list of encounter cards is complete. :)

Since then he published at least two loot cards (the gnomish "crossbow", and the "scalemail" shoulder protectors).

I deleted some previous posts, to reduce the multi-posts. And they're not actual anymore anyway.

Where? I don't see one missing...

I think he's stating a preference for the construction "...done with the art."

Paladin is like a barbarian but with a parameter? That sucks :(

Barbarian is attack only (axe symbol), paladin is both our either attack and defense (half axe, half shield)?

Thunt confirms on Twitter. Paladin is attack and defense, barbarian is attack only.

Wears' new avatar reminded me to update this thread for anyone observing it...

The same way Batman made it back to Gotham in ten minutes in Dark Knight Rises.
Also, pulling G:AR all-nighters will mean less time for Goblinscomic, so expect slow shading and updating....
But I assume (and hope) that if G:AR is out of the way and mind of THunt, he will feel more refreshed and less guilty, thus become more productive.

Don't forget this from three days ago:
@Thunt_Goblins: @hataroni After I finish shading the current page, I'm thinking about taking 2 or 3 weeks off Goblins to focus 100% on G:AR.

He's not the one making the game. He's doing the development, but printing and selling are being handled by a gaming company. That company is putting up the money, out of their own pockets, to print the game, advertise it, and ship copies to every Kickstarter backer (even though they had nothing to do with the Kickstarter campaign and got precisely zero of the money from it). They're being very generous and very patient, but they can't wait forever. Thunt was pressuring himself months ago, saying he was overdue and he couldn't make them wait.

Ugh. I wish there was a workaround for this. I suppose the backgrounds he needs are overly complex?
