19 (who?)

Okay so first off, Happy December! My fav month of the year, the cherry on top of 2012. Happy Holidays to all! Be sure to keep up with the Newgrounds Advent calender this month, particularly this next Wednesday, December 5th, when Kirbopher, Nylocke and Rockoon from TOME all celebrate their favorite Holidays!

Speakin' of Nylocke, there's a lot of important Nylocke-related topics to talk about! Considering how his color scheme looks like Christmas up and barfed all of him, it fits pretty well, so I AIN'T COMPLAININ'. First and most importantly, his fantastic voice performer, Martin Billany, as well as his lovely wife Marianne Miller, are gonna be doing a very special livestream "Card Games for Charity" on Saturday, December 8th. There'll be a ton of awesome guests joining in every hour, all for the purpose of raising money to help out those affected by Hurricane Sandy. All of Martin's charity events have turned out really well, but this one's gonna be bigger and better than any before and you should totally be there! A few friends of mine from the area were very heavily affected by the hurricane, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Any amount is welcome. :]

I'm currently working on a lot of TOME stuff, between a couple of the usual freelance projects. However, since the show's resurfacing with Episode 05, I really wanna move to the next level in 2013 with the show by all aspects. Before the year is up, I'll hopefully be releasing a new short that will take place a little bit after Episode 05. In the meantime however, I've already been making some good progress on Episode 06, which focuses a whole on...YOU GUESSED IT. NNNYLOCKE! MASTER OF FINALLY GETTING THE SPOTLIGHT. (As if he didn't already constantly own it.) I'm still working a few things out in production with it, but stay tuned, there's gonna be a very cool piece of audience-participation on this next Episode. I've got a few conventions in February of next year, so I'm aiming to have 06 ready for showing by that time.

AND LASTLY. Thanks to the fine folks at Level Up Studios, plus the fact that these apparently sold very well at Youmacon last November, the Nylocke "WHOOSH!" T-Shirts are now available for purchase from their site whenever you want! I also wanna pan interest on future TOME merchandise, or even just other T-Shirts. If there's a demand for it, maybe we can do it!

Thanks a bunch folks and stay with me! Happy Holidays!

Wait, Nylocke isn't the main focus in the other episodes? :trollface: (I kid, of course)

Seriously, though, I am looking forward to episode 6 and see how you plan on giving him the spotlight. Also, I really enjoy the little shorts that you post every now and then. It allows minor characters to be introduced (like Serpentine) or for character development.

I've noticed how quickly you have breezed through so many of the old episodes as far as the plot is concerned, I am wondering how you are going to treat the Gemini Tournament. Do you plan on having single matches every few episodes, or will more than one be shown? Also, do you plan on having certain guest players show up as contestants again?

Guessing I'll have to wait to find out, but I am sure it will be worth it.

Yes, I'm officially unreasonably excited about this series. Well done, Kirb, well done.

The new Nylocke is totally my favourite character. And I think I know who the mysterious guy in episode five is~

Help for Sandy? I'm in. basically I have a week to figure out how I can find a way to donate. This will be interesting. Having friends in the East Coast basically means that this is PERSONAL.

You're joking. T-shirts? Aww man! I know what I'm putting on my Christmas list! 8D Something tells me that any and all TOME merch will sell really well. I think TOME is already almost as big as Homestuck.

I could totally see people wanting outfits from the gang for cosplay purposes, or novelty items like their weapons or wigs. Actually I could see myself buying little phone charms of them, that would be really cute ^^

Funny thing- I have a habit off pulling of Nylocke's quotes using my alternate name- Ryocker. XD It can get pretty funny, pretty fast. ^^ considering Nylocke's a lovable ham anyway. :D
