TOME: Heroes and Netkings by Kirbopher15
TOME: Heroes and Netkings
A promotional poster of the major TOME Season 2 characters I've been wanting to illustrate for a while. The idea for Alpha and the gang on one side and the Netkings on the opposite side was in mind from the beginning, but Zetto and Kizuna's profiles on the side came later. The artwork also turned out to work well for some of the episode preview images.

Major thanks to :iconheilos: for the amazing background artwork on the ;sanctuary region as well as Webmaster's room.
TOME: Execk by Kirbopher15
TOME: Execk
Username: Execk
Power: Machinations
Class: Mechanical
Location: Washington, US
Voiced by Jon St. John

Netking #5, head of battle system development and programming. Execk biggest contribution to TOME was the creation of the "Battle Grid" that encases nearly the entire virtual world's landscape. His confidence in his ability to play his own game may come off as a bit abrasive, but he seems like a nice enough guy...but perhaps he's holding back some of his skill for the sake of being polite. He battles by shifting his arm into various machines like a sledgehammer, an air conditioner, a taser and even a flamethrower!
TOME: Rubirules by Kirbopher15
TOME: Rubirules
Username: Rubirules
Power: Mirror Body
Class: Morphilogical
Location: Washington, US
Voiced by Yuri Lowenthal

Netking #4, head of character design. Rubirules created and manages the system that allows players to design anything they can imagine for their character model, with approval of course. Rubi fancies himself the court jester of the Netkings, as he loves to troll people, particularly with his not-so-great impressions of them. His power, on the other hand, allows him to perfectly imitate the look and abilities of any player that he reflects the image of off his shiny gem-like body.
TOME: Kindarspirit by Kirbopher15
TOME: Kindarspirit
Username: Kindarspirit
Power: Weather
Class: Spellcaster
Location: Washington, US
Voiced by Michele Knotz

Netking #3, head of the sound department and very proudly the "true identity" of TOME's system voice that greets players upon logging in and gives them tutorials on how to play. Kindy is undoubtedly the most expressive and communicative of the Netkings, having a bit of an actor's spirit within her. When something cute and cuddly is in front of her though, forget're in squee town. She battles by changing the weather into massive hail, tornado and lightning attacks by controlling the fight's background music!
TOME: Bitshrum (S2) by Kirbopher15
TOME: Bitshrum (S2)
Username: Bitshrum
Power: Boxes
Class: Animalistic
Location: Washington, US
Voiced by Todd Haberkorn

Netking #2, head of environment design. The creation of TOME's three regions (;Lavendera, ;MechCity and ;Sanctuary) were overseen by him. Bitshrum comes off as a bit of a show-off, but he's actually just a big goofball. His enthusiasm is always 100%, whether it's his excitement about the game he worked so hard on or a chance to finally face off with the players using his unique powers. He battles by summoning a variety of boxes that hold different properties, including ones that hold dangerous items inside!

As always, QUITE a bit to talk about!

First off and most importantly, I've finally decided to take a stab at crowdfunding, specifically for a second season on my webseries, TOME! I'm looking to raise $15000 to create a total of 6 Episodes. At the time I'm posting this, we've already raised over a 3rd of the target budget thanks to the gracious folks who have donated in the last few days!


I'm SUPER grateful for the amazing support we've gotten so far. The rewards we're offering seem to be enticing enough, with the promise of a background character cameos, voice requests from many of the show's characters and an exclusive t-shirts! Just as a head's up, I'll be doing a Kirblog for tomorrow making some general announcements regarding my YouTube channel, as well as covering some basic info about the crowdfunding campaign, so if any of y'all have questions, I can certainly give some answers when I record it! Lemme know your thoughts and I'll provide support in any way I can! Sunday we'll also be starting the first of a five eBay auctions for background character cameos that have speaking lines! Keep an eye on the GoFundMe page for updates, but here's the basic schedule:

(ALL Auctions Start/End at 3 PM EST. Dates subject to change!)
SLOT #1 - Begins Sunday, May 4th/ Ends Wednesday, May 7th
SLOT #2 - Begins Wednesday, May 7th/ Ends Saturday, May 10th
SLOT #3 - Begins Saturday, May 10th/ Ends Tuesday, May 13th
SLOT #4 - Begins Tuesday, May 13th/ Ends Friday, May 16th
SLOT #5 - Begins Friday, May 16th/ Ends Monday, May 19th

Regarding some of the other stuff I'll be talking about on the Kirblog tomorrow, I've been keep consistent with updating my YouTube channel 4 times a week for quite a while now! First of all, my unofficial spin-off of "Did You Know Gaming?" has now reached almost 10 episodes!

"Did You Know Voice Acting?" has been fantastic, fun and easy to produce. I've got plenty more in the works, including three particular installments this month that all nicely coincide with each other; more on that tomorrow. Thursdays, I've mainly been updating with "re-runs" of TOME Episodes and Shorts, but I've also been adding in these fun little Anime-style "Next Episode" previews at the ends of each one. Also, with the release of each one, I've also been updating the official website with commentaries on the full Episode videos! We're up to 06 now, with 07 coming out next week!

I also started a little thing called "FLASH-back Friday", which fans of my old Newgrounds work will appreciate the most. Basically I'll re-uploading (in HD) a whole ton of my flash cartoons from the 2000's that helped spread around my name online for a long time. Stuff like Parody Rangers, Rawest Forest...and much more to come this summer!

Then finally, I've been updating each Saturday with Kirblogs as per the usual! Here's a recent one I did all about the recent "Zero Suit Samus controversy" that arose after the Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/WiiU Direct happened a while back (followed by my updated thoughts about new and upcoming stuff about the game).

That's all the major stuff for now, but as always, there's much more to come. Thanks for stickin' with me as usual, folks! Stay tuned and hope you enjoy what's in store!!

If you're still doing the thing where people show you characters, and you turn them into TOME cameo's, would you please do one of these?……
If you want to use them in a fight sequence of some kind, then the bug one's power could be temporary invisibility, slight health drain, and reeaally loud buzzing. The rock guys could be throwing his star thing, and being magnetic.

Something I was wondering - what inspired the designs of the Netkings? Like, I know Bitshrum was based on the mushrooms from Mario, but what about the other four?

Hey there Kirbopher. Was wondering if it would be alright if I use the images a few of your TOME characters for a few works in GIMP. I don't exactly have the equipment to be drawing anything at the moment, so photo-manipulation is about the only other thing I'm good at right now. I'll make sure to give you all the credit for characters used. :)

Yo. Long time no see (if ya even remember me from the ol' TFS days, heh, I went by 'Baldur' back then). Actually started watchin' your new TOME series recently, and since I'm gradually easing my way back onto DA I just figured I'd tell ya that I'm real impressed with how far you've come, man. Seems like a whole 'nother era, those days of sprite battles and silliness. I've passed a glance at some of the others I recall from back then, and everyone's really grown since then.

But enough nostalgia! Just figured I'd drop a greeting on ya, and tell ya to keep up the good work, dude. I'll look forward to following season two as it is released.

Side-note: Totally had me wondering if the 'Kageryuken' thing was gonna make a comeback after you intro'd Thorment and then sealed the virus in the Drain Edge, haha. It's been pretty fun contrasting the TTA narratives against TOME's.
