The "Rule 34 Unlock"
We're at the halfway point in the Pin-up Calendar & New Art Team project, and just on the verge of hitting our only stretch goal, which is $34K to cover the art budget deficit in Book 3. That means it's time to announce:
As a thank you for erasing the art budget gap, if/when we exceed $34K, we will be sending extra rewards to all donors at physical reward tiers ($20 and up).
For no extra pledge money, you will now also receive a Prince Albert crest fridge magnet, matching the styles of our previous magnets.
Additionally, sometime in 2016 (we will not say exactly when), you will also get a special double-sized 24" x 12" poster drawn by Xin, called "Hippiemancer Jamboree." The printed version of this poster will be PG rated, but there will also be a NSFW version available for download to donors at all levels (including the $1+ level). This will be the first ever NSFW Erfworld art, which prompted one of our IRC channel regulars (isau) to call this the "Rule 34 Unlock." That's an Erf-quality pun, isau.
I love everything about this. I have the previous magnets and they are flippin' sweet (never really been a pin guy, but I like the Albert crest). And a bonus poster for my new bare-walled apartment? Yes please.
Epic puns deserve epic funds. 5th Erfworld Kickstarter, consider yourself the 4th I've pledged.
Lets see, Erfworld is a very interesting comic, but Erfworld is also horrible: We have eternal war, almost no one has free will, you can either be killed(disbanded) by your ruler at will without a chance of fighting back or have a nice countdown to death in form of upkeep. There is rape(implied), torture(shown) and constant violence and killing...
What I am trying to say is: Everyone who complains about NSFW issues should get their priorities straight. Fast.

Nah some of xins past work and the way the comic skirts around NSFW stuff has done that just fine. I think it's just the fact that it's irtually unheard of for anyone anywhere to do this sort of thing officially. It's always fan art normally.
Still glad to see no ones getting their panties in a twist over this.
I finally backed the kickstarter and look forward to getting my pin and magnet! I've also pledged and look forward to your continued work on this story. Rob, from the bottom of my heart as a longtime Erfworld fan (I've been reading since pretty early in book one) thank you so much for showing us your determination! I hope you leveled!
