Kickstarter: Order of the Stick Reprint Drive

Order of the Stick is a great web comic by Rich Burlew and follows a party of adventurers in a D&D campaign.  Yeah, you say, so what?  Well, he has a huge amount of gamer humor, plus the characters are more or less aware that they’re operating under the D&D rules.  He upgraded the characters to 3.5 and 4, and all of a sudden they’re aware that they have new feats available.  They also make decisions to multiclass, etc.

It really is a lot of fun.

The third book, War and XPs, has been out of print for a while, so Rich started a Kickstarter project to fund the printing.  He set his goal pretty high at $57,750, and in 24 hours had $47,000 committed.  He’s now at almost $70,000 with 1700 backers and another 28 days to go!  So the project is funded, we’ll see what else gets funded!  If the money keeps climbing, it might fund reissues of the other OOTS books, which would be awesome.

The project is at:

I love Dork Tower!

I’ve met John Kovalic several times at San Diego ComicCon, I’ve enjoyed his humor for more years than I care to think about.  But today’s comic was wonderfully timed in relation to Monday’s WotC D&D announcement!
