    Gangsta-Mind-Flayer's "anywhere you can go..." line reminded me of that song (here with a topping of appropriately silly videogame antics courtesy of YouTube's unmistakable brand of humour)

    With musical accompaniment or without, this strip is, as they* say, "made of pure win".

    Mike, any word on the Rusty plushy doll? Christmas is coming, and I need to drop some majorly subtle hints on my girlfriend.

    PatchTogether doesn't really have a specific score or number of votes... they'll just tell you when you've reached the right point. Judging by other plushes that have been accepted, though, I think I'm halfway there. So, probably not for this Christmas, sadly.

    Makes sense, this way they can adjust the target number according to the figurine or plush design. A Kirby-like plush is probably going to need less votes than a more complex model like a rust monster with extra magnets and metal rods.

    Howbout a cast splash page? Rusty, Cube, and Mimic in the foreground, with a lineup of the girls behind them. Maybe throw in a few villains on the sides if you have room.

    You know, I see the Princess beating people, and I chuckle. There's been tons of hand to hand fighting. Yet, seeing Presti bashed by V'inny bothered me; the feeling came unbidden. Am I unusual with this? Was this intentional with the artwork?

    Protagonist Identification Syndrome. You cheer for the Princess because she's the "heroine". You feel bad when Presti gets clobbered for the same reason.

    I see you purchased ad space on Project Wonderful. Its good to see mimic on a banner.

    Also, nice invention of a new word. Mustelidecapitation is a rather nitch word, but pretty descriptive in that nitch.

    As far as mailbag goes...


    Dear Rusty (and co):

    This world needs more t-shirts featuring swashbuckling cubes getting it done. Could you please poke Mike and make this happen? Thank you.

    I'm loving this. It's rare to see both good art and funny jokes in a strip, especially fantasy-based. I must admit, though, that I can't read a single line of Mimic's dialogue without hearing it in the voice of Clamps from Futurama. Not that I'm complaining.

    Have you considered a Kickstarter to fun the plushes, since apparently Patched Together won't approve it?

    I don't think I have the audience size that Mr. Burlew has to pull that off. I guess it's worth a shot, though. Especially since PatchTogether hasn't produced a new product in months.

    The big problem is that most custom plush places have a minimum order in the thousands, while PT was just a few hundred. I don't think I'm going to get a thousand pre-orders right now.

    You don't need a fanbase as big as the OotS one to pull it off. Seriously, the entire fanbase was almost enough to be the number one most funded project ever.

    Also, I don't get why Madeline dumped wisdom. She loses her spellcasting! Unless she's a Pathfinder paladin. And her sense motive checks are worse.

    Sadly, I don't have a pattern for this plush. I've been contacting a few other custom sites, and most of them are pretty strict about creating the prototypes and patterns themselves. Which makes sense, since they're the experts.

    Most of the places I contacted wanted a pretty sizable down-payment before they even started prototyping, and I'm not sure how much I'd raise on Kickstarter without at least an actual photo of the product. It's this weird catch-22 of needing the product to get the money, but needing the money to get the product. I'm going to keep trying, though, and hopefully make it work. Maybe some sort of multiple goal thing on Kickstarter, I dunno yet.



    (And Maddie's dump stat is Int... but mostly, she just never considers that others might be lying.)

    If you mean the ones that do the prototyping: No, they don't get any rights to the character or the design of the toy. They're just making the actual product as a service I pay them for. Most of these places aren't interested in the tedious processes of order-taking and individual shipping anyway.

    Hey guys,

    I haven't given up on the plush Rustys yet. I'm still taking estimates and all that. In the meantime, I'm running a mini-contest on naming some new villains so check it out!
