Hey everyone! I just wanted to give a little update on how everything's been going, and I have some exciting news!

Now that voting is out on the Nuzlocke Forums, I can announce that OBT was nominated for Best Other Adventure during their end of the year extravaganza! For those of you that frequent the forums or their Discord server, you can vote here for your favorite runs. There's a lot of fantastic competition this year in the category, including Milos From Home and Genesis which are two of my personal favorites. Thanks to everyone who nominated OBT! If you aren't a part of the forums, I recommend that you join them and read some of the nuzlocke runs there! There's many talented artists and authors on the platform, and you can catch up on some other fantastic adventures while waiting for OBT to return.

As far as personal life, I've managed to save up enough money to stay in school! With the help of a financial aid award I was extremely lucky to be a part of, as well as the folks who were kind enough to commission or donate to me, I got to the cutoff and am now registered for classes in the spring at my university. The overwhelming support I've received has been amazing, you all brought me to tears with the positivity you've brought forward and the help you all gave. I really, truly, couldn't have been able to do it without you all. It was a really tough time for me, and I really wasn't sure if I'd be able to make it through, but I did! And now I'm excited to be working on OBT again. Updates are set to start posting on Patreon in January, and hopefully can be released publicly again in February! January patrons who are in the $10+ are also going to be receiving a little bonus gift in the mail from me for their patience, so if you want to be a part of that, be sure to join before January 5th!

That said, I'm back to being broke even though school is paid off (it took all of my savings to pay off the remainder of my tuition even with the award u,w,u), so commissions are still open! I will also soon be posting adoptables on my DeviantArt, as well as posting completed commissions there, so you can check my page every once in a while to see what I'm up to during this hiatus.

In the meantime, have you read the fancomic Clash of the Poke-Characters? The latest chapter, Tussle in Treasure Town, features Rune fighting against Gamma from The Stars Shine Bright and Milo from Milos From Home, can you guess which from this trio of amnesiacs will win? It's a very fun comic, be sure to check it out!

Thank you all again, and I hope to see you in February!

@Mopruk: LMAO
@Glamoew: You're in luck, you can commission a character sheet for $50 once I reopen commissions!

I finally am starting a buffer back up again for OBT! This page was supposed to be lazy, but then I got really excited and put more effort into it, especially since this is the first time we meet our guildmaster and DM, Griffin McElroy. I didn't mean to make him Griffin, it just happened. That said, there's still some inconsistencies left over from not sketching things out properly, but it's not noticeable and doesn't impact the story so I'm not worried about it.

Gee Malachi, in denial much? Or maybe he does have a point after all?

Hey guys! I had meant to update this closer to the beginning of November, but as some of you know I ended up getting a little wrapped up in antibiotics and illness, so I didn't really get around to doing it until now! I have lots of exciting things planned this month for my Patrons, and I hope you all are just as excited as I am! Patrons are what help keep me afloat during the really tough times, and every shift I don't have to take is more time spent on the comic! So really, thanks to all of you for your help in supporting OBT! And of course, if you aren't in any financial position to help, I appreciate the lovely comments you all leave. They make my day, and the emotional support is just as wonderful.

More info about some old and new features below!

Previous Features:
-Donor Credit: Regardless of what tier you decide to go with, you will get credit as one of my donors on OBT's main website host, Smackjeeves!
-Commission Discounts: Depending on your tier, you can get a variety of discounts on your commissions! Just be sure to remind me when ordering a commission.
-Cameo Priority/Interactive Cameos: You get bumped to the top of the list for a cameo submission of your choice! Interactive cameos get a slightly more prominent role than being a background character, and may chat things up with our heroes. While I can't give characters major roles in the story because of creative conflict, you will get to see them in action! May take some time to appear since I want characters to appear in the story organically.
-Trivia Tuesdays ($5+): Get access to little factoids about characters and the world that you never knew, accompanied by illustrations!
-Pre-Release Pages ($5+): You can get access to up to 5 pages ahead of the public schedule!
-Early Bird Pages ($20+): For a bump up in cost, you get access to all pages as they're completed, past the previous 5 page limit!
-Monthly Postcards ($10+): On the 5th of each month, I'll be ordering postcards for all of my current Patrons! I decided to order a little after the beginning of the month and just so any stragglers who want to pledge can have some time to do so before I start ordering. For the time-being, these postcards are limited edition, so don't miss out!
-Speedpaints ($10+): Every Monday, I'll be posting a new speedpaint! These can be from streams, pages, or warmups that I've done. A must-have for an exclusive look into my process!

New Features:
-Art Giveaway: On the 15th of this month, I will randomly select two lucky supporters of OBT to win free art! You can read more here on how to enter. There will be two prizes this month, a full painted, complex background commission with up to 2 characters (at a $90 value), and a single painted character commission (at a $30 value)! If you want to participate, make sure you follow the instructions on the post there for a chance to win!

Stretch Goals:
-$50- Reached!: OBT can finally stop being a financial strain for me! Hiatuses usually happen because I have to put the comic aside and work to afford paid subscriptions to art programs and advertising. By reaching this goal, the comic is no longer a financial burden.
-$100: For $100 a month, I'll begin hosting Patron-exclusive streams where I'll regularly stream future pages of OBT as well as other bonus content! If I have the time and energy, after each stream I am willing to take requests as well. Streams will occur at least twice a month as long as my irl life gives me the time/resources to.
-$150: At $150 a month, OBT will update on a Tues/Thurs schedule! As it currently stands, OBT is looking to take 10-15 years to get completed as it's only a hobby for me, but if we updated twice a week, that cuts that time in half to 5-8 years!
-$500: Once we reach $500 a month, I'll be able to update OBT on a Mon/Wed/Fri schedule! That cuts projected time to complete OBT down to 3-5 years!
-$600: The first time we hit this goal, it will trigger an automatic Monster House Marathon! The MHM is an event in which I publicly update OBT on a daily basis for a whole month while also sprinkling in a bunch of extra content! These are always really fun, I hope to do another one soon!
-$700: At $700 a month, I can quit my job to update OBT on a Sun/Tues/Thurs/Sat schedule! That cuts projected time to completion down to 2-4 years!

(And for those curious about OBT updating, don't worry! We'll be back next week for sure!)

no buffer? no problem
shatters all of my bones

On the bright side, my worst midterms are over so I can start pumping content back out! I've caught up quite a bit on Inktober, so patrons can expect to start seeing those uploaded pretty soon! I also have finally received the latest shipment of postcards, and those will be distributed starting tomorrow! The crowd on this page was fun to come up with, I'm especially fond of the ponyta/mudbray subspecies and the skrelp.

on edge doesn't begin to describe it
whoops, this page accidentally got posted a day early! some of you might have been lucky enough to see it before i switched it back ;)
eavesdropping isn't polite, runey-poo

-Mina the Kirlia and Flare the Monferno by Skyfoxfirebreather

there was no feasible way i could draw diglett any way other than canon without getting weirded out

you lucked out diglett, no anime eyes for you today
it's painfully obvious what order I drew these pages in for the buffer
((this one was first))
they're the best of friends! that's why she walked away without him
very responsible of maelstrom to keep malachi on the road to plot, how considerate of her!
