Because I’ll be at Gencon, the next two updates will be Altsplanations. Any time the progression of the comic is slowed, it bothers me. However, I haven’t been to a convention in two years (not including VCON, which is figuratively in my back yard) and it’s time I go.

As I mentioned in my previous blog entry, I won’t have a booth but I will be playing Goblins: Alternate Realities quite a bit. Recently, I discovered that there are limited seats to four official G:AR games. I thought it was just going to be Danielle, myself and Evertide Games sitting around playing the game in some dank corner somewhere, but apparently it’s all scheduled and stuff. Anyways, click here to grab a seat at one of the games. You’ll have to sign up/login to a Gencon account, first. If the games fill up, we’ll most likely be playing the game in some open gaming area, so come and find us anyways.

EDIT: Those who come and play with us get a free promo card from Evertide Games.

As always, thanks for reading.


The New Site Layout, Gencon

“The layout looks off centred to me.”

Do you have an ad blocker on for my site? If so, that’s almost definitely the problem. If you turn off the ad blocker, that should fix the issue. Also, 100% of my income is currently coming from ad revenue so…

Yoda-hulk“Guilt leads to ad blocker turned off. Ad blocker turned off leads to paycheques. Paycheques leads to eating.”

Don’t feel bad though. A lot of folks have it turned off for the old .com site, but didn’t think to turn it off for the .org site.

“Do you get money if I click on the ads?”

Only click on an ad if it genuinely interests you. Please don’t spam click anything as that doesn’t help anyone. I get teeny-weeny micro payments when you just see an ad and that adds up. So just by reading my comic, you’re helping me out.

“Why are you STILL stuck on the .org site? It doesn’t take almost three months to transfer control of a domain to someone.”

I get a lot of emails about this. All I can say, is we’ve been having technical difficulties.

“But what kind of technical difficulties could…”

topmen“Technical. Difficulties.”

“Um… okay. Are you going to be at Gencon this year?”

Yes, Danielle and I will be at Gencon, though we won’t have a booth this year. Instead, we’ll mostly be in the gaming area playing Goblins: Alternate Realities with anyone who wants to join us. We’ll be playing other stuff too and making asses of ourselves (as is the custom at such events), but mostly we’ll be playing G:AR. Look for two 8 foot tall, Goblins banners in the gaming area and a bald guy repeatedly saying “why can’t I ever win this, it’s MY game!”.

We’ll also be at…

The Com Before the Org

Right now, my site is posted at www.goblinscomic.org . It used to be posted at www.goblinscomic.com, but as most of you have figured out and commented on, there are technical difficulties getting my domain back from the individuals who currently have it. At the time of writing this, if you try to go to the .com site, it simply redirects you to the .org site.

Due to technical difficulties THAT ARE NOBODY’S FAULT, the transfer of the domain is having its share of hiccups. So just to be on the safe side, I’m asking all of my readers to bookmark www.goblinscomic.org while you can. If all of the issues are worked out, I’ll let you know and have the .org site redirect all traffic back to the .com site. However, if things don’t work out, the .com site will just stop working and you’ll be all “where are my goblins?”.

Let me state again, that there is no one to blame right now. Everything is cool. Just tech difficulties. Kay?

So bookmark www.goblinscomic.org and change your RSS feed as well. If things fall apart, I’d hate to see you go without your Goblins (and me without my ad revenue /nervous laugh).

As always, thanks for reading my comic at www.goblinscomic.org
