What is a Tool?
It's the highest term of respect, of course. We reserve it for readers and fans of Erfworld who pledge their support to the comic and the website, so that we can continue making more Erfworld.
What is the Toolbox?
Where the Tools go. A special section of the site, just for supporters.
How do I become a Tool?
You pledge a recurring subscription fee of $3 a month. Sign up right here using the following form and button. In the text form please input your current Erfworld.com Forum name, or if not signed up yet enter your desired Forum/Toolbox name and we'll use it to set up your account:

And, um, what's in it for me? What's in the Toolbox?
Inside the Toolbox, you will find a lot of random extras related to Erfworld. This includes lost panels, audio podcasts, scripts, and a wallpaper of the month.
On top of that, Tools get access to an archive of much larger (1200px wide) images of the comic, at a lower compression. They're very pretty.
And you'll get to browse the site ad-free when you are logged in.
Finally, there's a private Toolbox forum that's only visible to Tools, and Tools will have a special forum badge when they post.
Is that everything? Did you save the best for last?
What a softball question. Yes, we DID save the best for last! Here's the golden ticket:
All of your subscriber fees become store credit.
What, seriously? Every dollar?
Every dollar. $3 store credit a month, or $36 for a year.
So if you plan to buy the book, for example, sign up for the Toolbox today. By the time the book is available, it will be like getting it very cheap or free. And in the meantime, you get to play in the Toolbox.
Um, what if I cancel?
If you cancel your Toolbox subscription, you'll have 90 days to use or lose your store credit, or sign up again.
Well, right now you should be aware that the process of assigning your store credit is manual, because we're still in beta. So it may take 24 hours or more before you see your store credit appear. We'll work on streamlining that, going forward. Right now, once you get signed up you will have accounts made at the forum, store, and main site using the same Toolbox ID you submit above. To enable access to all of the sites you'll need to reset your password to each site by using their "forgot password" system (unless you've already went ahead and signed up and are using the site) so that you can enter your own new password. You can help us speed up the process of sign ups by actually making forum and store accounts using your toolbox ID, but this isn't required.
Thank you for supporting our dreams.
