Synnibarr Lives!!!!!

I had a whole blog post written up and ready to go, and I'll probably put that up tomorrow, but then I saw this.

My first reaction was to laugh - seriously?  Synnibarr??????  Well slap my ass and call me Shirley, Kickstarter has officially jumped the shark!

Then I read that author Raven c.s. McCracken (still don't really quite get that name) apparently suffered a house fire, which caused him (?) to lose his home, his pets and the artwork for the original book, and I felt bad for having laughed.  Then I started looking through the Kickstarter page, and hell - he's got an introduction from Dr. Richard Garfield, inventory of Magic: The Gathering!  And there's all kinds of other stuff being offered too!

And he's askign for $55,000 - I'm not sure how long it's been up and running, the first update was put up 4 days ago, so my guess is that it hasn't been too long, but there has only been just under $2,000 donated thus far.  To be honest, I'll be shocked if it makes it, but who knows?  Kickstarter is a magical place, where anything can happens, and people become rich beyond the dreams of avarice!  So what the hell, I threw some money at it.

So kick in, and help out!  According to Raven c.s. McCracken (LOVE that name!) there has been a "complete redesign and update", so what's the worst that can happen!

Only $53,000 left to go, so get to donating!!!

  2. Kickstarter is awesome; you can get some great stuff you really want to see made, and if you don't just ignore them. Like I will be doing with this.

  3. But what does the c.s. stand for? And why in lower case?
