Ormond has always been based somewhat off of Dismas, the Highwayman from Darkest Dungeon. Reynauldo takes his name from Dismas’ partner, and is a cross between Shovel Knight and the Crusader. I like the idea that they both riff about a game they play together.

Also, I am more than slightly psyched about the expansion pack that’s coming out for Darkest Dungeon.

I’VE BEEN MAKING A D&D CAMPAIGN FOR A WHILE AND YOU JUST GAVE ME THE BEST GODDAMN IDEA.

Sorry to see the updates slowing down. Hope all is well with you guys.

“ARE THERE ANY VILLAINS THERE?”
“Yea”
“I totally did! You asked me if I wanted any equipment before this adventure and I said no but I need material components for all my spells so I cast ‘Mordencaiden’s Pet Hag”
“You can get to know the villain but you don’t get to KNOW the villain”
“OKAY BUT IF THERE ARE ANY VILLAINS THERE I WANT TO DO THEM”

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.
