I'm heading down to gencon, and this blog has my schedule.

Also, if you live around Indianapolis, I'm doing some off-site events where you can see me too.

Furthermore: This blog has news you might not have heard elsewhere.

In closing: Draccus!

We're in the final hours of our IndieGoGo fundraiser, and as I type this, we've already raised more than $220,000 dollars for charity.

It's gone really well. More than 6000 people have come over and bought something cool in order to help make the world a better place.

So first, I'd just like to say: thanks for being awesome.

Second, a reminder that today is your last chance to get in on the action. The chance to win a cabin on the JoCoCruise is a limited-time offer, obviously. Ditto with ordering t-shirts in colors other than black.

What's more, some items won't be for sale in the Tinker's Packs later: like the Litographs shirt or some of our bundles....

Third, if we do sell these items later, they'll probably cost a little more. With the IndieGoGo we do bulk shipping, which is cheaper. But we can't do that with individual orders from the Tinker's Packs.

Just wanted to let you know...

Thanks again for helping out everyone.

I did a podcast with the lovely folks at Tea And Jeopardy and had a blast. It's nice to occasionally pretend I'm a gentleman (having tea in the late cretaceous period.)

We have chosen winners for our t-shirt contest and launched our summer fundraiser which contains many delicious geeky things.

Remember, our IndiGoGo is only running for a week, and we only have limited supplies of some of the items. So if you want to grab this stuff, the time is now.

Share and enjoy....

For the next couple days you have a chance to vote on which t-shirt designs will become a reality in the June 1st fundraiser.

Even if you're not into t-shirts, you should check this out. The designs are beautiful...

Ugh, I had a design stuck in my head, but never had the time to get it finished. I might draw it up later just because :)

And yeah, those are gorgeous!

Wherein Pat shares the first episode of a new podcast he's doing, and asks for help finding a name for it. Because he's an idiot.

Amusing thing is he asked himself that question :) 
People should really stop asking, it'll happen when it happens

If you're only going to watch one video today....

Well... let's be honest. If you're only going to watch one video today, it should probably be the Fallout 4 preview.

But if you watch TWO videos today. You could make this one the second one. Y'know. If you're in the mood for a laugh...

We've got a beautiful new poster in our summer fundraiser.

Check out the Indigogo for the chance to grab this and many other delightful pieces of geekery.

Even better? All proceeds go to charity.

A couple days ago, the Worldbuilders team showed me this picture that had shown up for the t-shirt design contest.

I looked at it for the space of a short breath, then shrugged. "What is it?" I asked.

"It's an apple that thinks its a pear," they told me.

And my heart absolutely broke. Imagine the sound of a person makes when they see the most adorable kitten picture ever. That's the sound I made, times a thousand.

There's still time to get in on the design contest if you're interested. Details here:
