This was a good time to change character perspective, right?

I think so, anyway.

Hey, since you scrolled this far down, check out our new shirt. It’s for the Thieves Can’t comic, but some Ramen Empire shirts will be coming fairly soon. Zach wanted to draw cute goblins, though, because cute goblins make everything way, way less stressful.

Shirt not your cuppa? Still want to show some support for the comic? Then consider a voluntary subscription over on our Ramen Empire Patreon. You’ll get access to the occasional book, podcast, and bonus art. It also helps us keep the lights on. Drawing in the dark stinks, so think it over!

I sat here refreshing all of twenty webcomics, and I didn’t think it would work.

I think I’m gonna form some really bad habits now.

So, I see they’re cleaning up after an RPG session…

Two girls, Add possibly Skyler, Scotty, and Cid.
Scotty strikes me as the sort who might not understand his character sheet. He also strikes me as the sort who might doff his armor in the back room of a bar.
Mei Li strikes me as the sort who might not understand her character sheet, being very possibly new to traditional RPG’s along with the rest of the culture hiccups.
I’m inclined to guess Mei Li for the thief. Scotty for the knight. Skyler for the barmaid, and that leaves Li Jing for the Tiefling. That leaves out Cid and Todd, but considering the scene change, I don’t think Todd and Skyler would have been occupying the same room just previous or else she’d not be hunting for him now.

I love this post, and you’re officially the first reader (that I’ve seen) to openly suggest the connection between RE an TC. <3

There are a small number of extras who could definitely be in your list, including --

Nameless Women's Studies Teacher
Small Goon from Bar Scene
Ping
Leo
Zhang (Wolfman / Gangster from Afterglow / DTT, who's been MIA for a good long time now)
Dr. Wolf

I'm probably forgetting a few.

That said, Zach says I'm not allowed to help anymore. :p

New Schedule, Kickstarting Thieves Can’t Issue One, and New Patreon Rewards

New Schedule, Kickstarting Thieves Can’t Issue One, and New Patreon Rewards published on No Comments on New Schedule, Kickstarting Thieves Can’t Issue One, and New Patreon Rewards

So, first and foremost, we’re trying to Kickstart a paper copy of Thieves Can’t, Issue One. This might be the only shot to get this sucker in print, and it’s definitely going to be the only guaranteed way to get it signed.

 

The Kickstarter is about 1/4 of the way funded inside a day, so I’m very hopeful about meeting the $1000 goal. It’s an all-or-nothing campaign, so if we don’t meet the goal, the paper copy won’t happen. That said, we’re still going to go ahead with a PDF even if it fails, and this will be a Patreon reward that all of our supporters get once we hit $250 / month on that venue.

Speaking of Patreon, we’re changing up the rewards we offer. We had almost decided to nix the Art Commission reward, but then thought better of it. You may have received e-mails about this. Apologies for the confusion. We’re now offering a Patron-only monthly online hangout, an art raffle, a way to buy space beneath the comic to talk to our readers, and a way to inject yourself or your tabletop character directly into a Thieves Can’t comic. Check it out!

The Ramen Empire patreon is a bit lacklustre right now, and will be getting a similar brush-up later this month.

Update Schedule

We’re now updating one of our comics every Monday, come hell or high water. This means Ramen Empire is off haitus. Thieves Can’t will update on the first Monday of every month, so you’ll know when to tune in instead of crossing your fingers and visiting the site.
