I know, I know. Lately, all I've been talking about is this Goblins: Animated campaign. Believe me, I know how that can feel. I've followed actors or comedians who for a time, talk non-stop about their new movie or book. I know how it feels to be tired of hearing about that one project so much.

That being said, this is something that I and others have been working hard on for almost two years. It all comes down to this moment and I admit, it's genuinely terrifying. I'm terrible at this business stuff. Promotion, marketing, demographics... it's just not me.

So this is me simply asking for your help. This is a chance for Goblins to explode into something massive, but I simply can't do it without you. If I can trouble you to throw in a couple bucks and pass the word out, that'd mean everything to me. It's up in the air as to how we'll do. As of writing this, here's where we are...

However this all turns out, my goal is to be able to focus a lot more of my time on the comic. I understand that I say that a lot and the updates are still slow these days. I also understand why the angry emails about the slow updates are written. By creating Goblins, I've essentially asked you to feel some level of passion toward it. So it'd be hypocritical of me to blame those of you who are angry about the slower updates.

Whether you're able to support Goblins: Animated or not, I'm really thankful to you for simply reading my work. Thank you.


If you have any questions or concerns, you can reach me through my Twitter or my email.

The Indiegogo Goblins: Animated campaign!


First and formost, I want to offer every ounce of thanks that I have, to those that jumped in to support Goblins: Animated, over at Kickstarter. Thank you so much!

We've looked at the campaign and listened to the feedback we were getting from you. We decided that the best thing to do, was to cancel this campaign and restart it over at Indiegogo, with some much needed improvements. With these improvements, we're very confident that we'll be able to bring this cartoon series to life.

So please stop on by to help us make this a reality!

Thank you!

Edit: The title of this blog originally called this a "trailer". That was my bad. Technically, this is not a trailer, but an animatic. Sorry about that.

For the past year or so, we've been working in secret (well, semi-secret) on Goblins the animated series. It's still a ways off from being released, but so much work has been done and those involved with this are all really excited.

The series aims to turn the comic into a professional, high quality cartoon. Co-writing it with me, are Matt King and Phil LaMarr (their names link to their IMDB pages) who will also be doing voice work in the show, along with a list of other big names voicing the various characters. Aside from Matt and Phil, I don't think I'm allowed to officially name any of the actors, the animation studio, who's doing the music, etc. At this point, I'd rather err on the side of caution since this whole thing has like... lawyers involved with contracts and percentages and lots of grown-up stuff like that.

Very soon, a sort of rough draft trailer will be going public. The animation has an unfinished look to it, but it showcases the talents of everyone involved, really well.

There is more info to come out about dates, season one, funding, etc. Follow any of us on Twitter to be kept up to date as new info comes out.

The Goblins Card Game

The reason for my slow updating lately has been because of this and The Goblins Card Game (otherwise known as Goblins: Alternate Realities) which as of yesterday, I'm super excited to finally be finished. Like 'Goblins Animated', the card game is still a ways off from going public, but after years of single handedly drawing hundreds of cards, designing, playtesting, and designing some more, I have a finished, balanced card game prototype. I know that a lot of you have a ton of questions about the game and I'm working on a webpage that will showcase the cards, the artwork, the rules, a FAQ and offer contact info.

My life is a swirly, crazy mess these days, but my goals remain...

1. Don't let down the people who are owed a copy of that game.

2. Don't let down the people who have attached their names to Goblins: Animated.

3. Don't let down the Goblins readers who have been so supportive for years.

I'm just glad that I can finally be open and public about goal number two! :)

So I'm back to working condition after my surgery. I have another one in April, but that's probably going to be super minor and won't cut into my work time. But at this point, I'm able to work without hindrance, so there's nothing stopping me from going back to posting updates every Monday. Thanks for your patience everyone and I hope you enjoy today's update. -Tarol

I had surgery on my mouth/face. I've been mostly in bed while healing. It sucks, but I'm getting better. Apologies for the lack of content. -Tarol

EDIT: The tutorial (which is over two hours long) is now up on YouTube. Due to a snow storm causing many power outages and me spending too much time this week on the card game (mostly the card game thing), there is no update today. However, I'm about to create some filler that I think some folks might enjoy. My plan is to live stream a tutorial on how to create an awesome tabletop RPG city, filled with quests and lots of stuff for the players to explore (and wreck). I will then upload that unedited tutorial onto YouTube. I'm setting up to start this right now. EDIT: I should mention that since I'm trying to create a fairly tight tutorial video, I won't be joking around or answering questions etc as much as I usually do. Though I will answer questions about the subject matter. Here's the link to the live stream. Here's the link to the YouTube video. The next Goblins page will go up on Monday, Feb 13th (and every Monday after that). Thank you! -Tarol And feel free to follow me on Twitter for the type of rambling that you could find at literally millions of other Twitter accounts!

The next Goblins update comes Monday, January 2nd followed by every Monday after that. At least this is the current plan. You see, I've been lucky enough to hire the award winning artist, Cheyenne Wright who among other things, colours the popular webcomic, Girl Genius (written by Phil and Kaja Foglio). The fact that Phil Foglio's 1980s comic 'What's New', is one of the main things that got me into drawing a Dungeons & Dragons themed comic in the first place, is kinda surreal to me. Goblins has four parents. What's New, Wormy, Heavy Metal Magazine and Elfquest. Anyways, if you'd like to take a quick look at Cheyenne's colouring, click here. So with Cheyenne's help, it is my strong hope that I'll be able to keep up with at 'least' a once per week update schedule. For now, it's every Monday. If this works out, we'll see how it goes from there. Cheyenne is apparently made of art-magic and can colour pages faster than I can type the words "Cheyenne is apparently made of art-magic". Whether or not we can update more than once per week is based purely on my drawing speed. With the new colourist, comes a new look to the art style. I adore what Cheyenne is bringing to the pages and I hope you all will too. Sometime in January, I'll also be working with my new tech wizard, who will greatly improve the look and feel of the website itself. So look forward to massive, visual changes in the website, as well. With a bit of extra time, I'm really hoping to FINALLY finish my work on the Goblins Card Game (which I have barely touched in weeks), as well as a few other responsibilities I have, connected to Goblins. As always, thank you for everything! -Tarol My Twitter Cheyenne's Twitter
