I have this theory about intelligence. It's an over-simplified theory but here it is...

There are three basic levels of intelligence. The first level consists of people who are not smart enough to know anything about the complexities of the universe and the deep suffering humanity has endured since its beginning. These people, unaware of the dark or disappointing aspects of existence, take blissful pleasure in small, insignificant things like a sunny day or a blueberry waffle. They spend their days with dumb looking grins on their faces, talking about unimportant, simple pleasures.

The second level of intelligence is made up of people who are smart enough to have a notable understanding of those complexities of the universe and that deep suffering that humanity has endured. With their grasp on the bleakness of existence, they see no emotion in a sunny day, knowing full well that emotions are nothing more than chemical reactions in our brains, triggered by our environment to help dictate our actions in ways that might benefit our species. They fail to see the point in that blueberry waffle, knowing that at any given time, uncounted people around the world are dying of hunger caused by corruption.

People within the third level of intelligence are also aware of these detailed and dreary points of our world. They understand the moral failure that so much of our planet endures. They know about the distant, permanently undiscovered details of the universe that are so vast and numerous, they masquerade as a great, black emptiness to our simple, mortal minds. Yet, these people who are completely aware of the dark or disappointing aspects of existence, have the extensive intelligence that is needed to take blissful pleasure in small, insignificant things like a sunny day or a blueberry waffle. They spend their days with dumb looking grins on their faces, talking about unimportant, simple pleasures.

As always, thanks for reading.

Working on the new site look now, expect bunches of things to not work properly for the time being.

Thanks for your patience.

The good folks over at GeeksOn have interviewed George R.R. Martin, Gina Torres (Zoe from Firefly) and Joss Whedon, but in their latest episode, they're stuck with me.

Slow day.

Check it out.

As always, thanks for reading.

For all of Thursday, I'm once again doing a 100% guaranteed responce to everyone and anyone who tweets at me.

Here is my Twitter account.

Also, if you haven't gotten an email from me regarding your donation yet, fear not. There are still quite a few more "GIMME LOOT" emails for me to respond to. And thank you SO much to everyone who's been donating! I hope you like the loot.

As always, thanks for reading.

In order to give some much needed attention to long overdue responsibilities like recreating/updating this "mostly functional" website, finally getting the visual-play-by-post Tempts Fate 9 game up and running and building up as much of a buffer as I can, Goblins Book Four will begin here on Monday, November 9th. But fear not, on every Monday between now and November 9th, I'll be posting a bunch of my concept sketches of scenes from Book Four, some with their text included, so you can have an idea of what's coming. I won't show anything spoilery, just think of the sketches as teaser trailers.

The recreated Goblins site will look cooler and contain a bunch of new features like an RSS link, a cosplay photo section (so email me pics of you in your Goblins costumes!), D&D tools and more. I hope you like it.

So to sum up, here's the schedule...

Monday, October 26th ~ Book Four concept sketches
Monday, November 2nd ~ more Book Four concept sketches
Monday, Novemeber 9th ~ Goblins Book Four launches!

As always, thanks for reading.

Well... Crumbs & Pennies. :(

I've been working my butt of on this last update, but it's taking a very long time. Too much detail. Anyways, I'll have it live as soon as it's finished. For now, I'm crawling into bed.

As always, thanks for reading.

This next update is the last update of Book Three and the last update of the Brassmoon story arc. Under the vote button is a sneak peek of a panel from that update.

And to everyone who has been pre-ordering Book Two, I offer my loudest, most obnoxious thanks ever! I really appreciate the interest that you're showing in the Book. Since this is Keenspot's first experience with publishing Goblins material, they're looking at how much interest there is and using that as a gauge to see how quickly they can invest in things like Goblins plushies, animation, etc. Your pre-orders make these fun things happen faster. As a thank you, here's what I'll do...

When Book Four starts updating, I'm going to be giving this site a much needed overhaul. Things like an updated fan art page (thanks to the artists for their patience), RSS link, D&D tools etc will be added. I was going to save a map of the Goblins landscape as a bonus in my next PDF downloadable book, but if the Book Two pre-orders pass 600 (this includes orders of both the softcover & hardcover or the combo pack), I'll instead add it as a permanent part of the revamped site for free.

As always, thanks for reading.

Well, after a delay at the printers, Goblins Book Two pre-orders have finally begun. Hooray! To anyone who pre-orders a copy, Thank you SO much for your support! The more we impress Keenspot with pre-orders, the faster they'll start making other fun stuff like Goblins plushies!

Last Thursday, I did 24 hours of answering every, single Twitter message I received. The whole thing was very fun and due to Twitter's ability to create quick responses, didn't taken much time off my hands at all. So I've decided that every Thursday will be Respond-to-all-Twitters-Thursday. I may still respond on other days, but not to everything. I'm not ignoring you, I'm just not always going to be looking at my Twitter account.

So this Thursday, hit me with questions, comments or goofy stuff. You are 100% guaranteed a response. If you don't already know, this is my Twitter account.

Also, I'm hoping to find the ending to Book Three into next week's update.

As always, thanks for reading.
