Goblin Quest

Grant Howitt writes some really great games. I've been especially enchanted by Goblin Quest and Doctor Magnethands

Goblin Quest, in particular, struck me as a game that deserved some lavishly-illustrated professional production. I'd toyed around in my head about contacting Howitt and offering my services to do exactly that, but then the incredible Calamity Jon Morris mentioned that he was interested in turning his amazing Goblin books into a game of some sort. As much as I wanted to illustrate Goblin Quest myself, I wanted a copy illustrated by Jon even more. A short twitter conversation later, the two made a love connection and now they have a bouncing baby Kickstarter!

The kickstarter is funded, the game is written and extensively playtested, Jon is literally the best qualified human being on the planet to illustrate it, and now the stretch goals are pinging away. I begged Grant to fit me in somewhere. I'll be illustrating one of the stretch goal variants, which, I believe, as already been funded. I can't wait to get started!

omigodomigodmoigodseriously, Jon Morris is the best

You have nothing to lose and a wonderful gaming experience to gain!
Go! Fund! Hurray!
