Gofundme ends on Thursday! I’m running a gofundme to help raise money to get those Yeld books to the very patient Kickstarter backers that have been waiting for them. In return for a small donation I’m offering a digital version of the brand new Yeld game expansion Town’s & Territories. For a larger donation you can get a piece of original Yeld art from the book. You can check out the gofundme here. If you don’t have the Yeld game book yet you can get the digital version here (and the expansion as well).
Never thought of that. Why not?
Nobody wants to go to that crazy world where they use paper as money instead of something more reliable like eggplant.
Give Jake More Snakes
a.k.a. shoot her out the toilet to earth
Hey Jake, do you know yet if you will be at ECCC in Seattle this year?
I won’t be, unless I end up with a surprise waitlist table. If thats the case I’ll make an announcement. I do plan to be at Sakuracon this year. I couldn’t get a table, but I’ll be running Yeld games in the gaming room. Or thats the plan. I’m still working out the details.
Can you be a snek people foster carer?
I don’t mean anything bad by this, I adore the comic, but if I may ask, is Modest Medusa anywhere near its endgame. I remember you, Jake, said something earlier about Modest going to school being the final arc, but now its supposed to lead up to a conflict with the prince or something?
When I started the comic I had no real plan, but that changed pretty quickly, and by the time I got to strip 50 I had what I thought would be the full series planned out. originally that was Season 1-4 (although I had thought that would just be 3 seasons). But by the time I got that far I realized I had a much larger story I wanted to tell. At that time I thought of Season 4 as the half way point. I may still be.I’m not sure. I find that while I have the big moments in my story planned out, the characters keep presenting endless amounts of small moments, and I’m hesitant to move to fast for fear of missing them.
Oooo… As Yeld changes people from Jake’s world, does it work in reverse? Could Shut Up keep her hands/arms if she went to live with Modest & Co.? That could resolve a lot for her given her wish not to become a snake is based on her dreams (which seem to require her arms/hands) versus the fear of becoming like her mom. At the least, she could spend a part or her entire childhood being an adventurer in another world.
So far we haven’t seen anything to suggest that. But who knows?
There was that page where Knight of Chains enters the portal back to earth and steps in as a human
So some strange effect of going Yeld -> Earth is plausible I’ld say
I probably shouldn’t have included that sequence in that way. The sequence was supposed to represent that he had a chance to return to his world, but he didn’t feel like he belonged there. I should have made it clear that his transformation back to human was more more metaphor than fact, and that by that point he had already lost his free will. He was never actually going to be able to choose to return home on his own or regain his original form for more than a moment. if I was going to re-do the sequence I’d show him struggling and failing to maintain the human form.
