The Starcaster Chronicles 07.00

April 8, 2020 by Tim

So… I’m finally taking a vacation. I need a break. I need a little break for me, for my state of mind, and also I need a break because with the quarantine in place, our kids are home all day. The schools are shut down for who-knows-how-long. Our district has set up a distance learning program to continue class from home, and it’s a lot. It’s a big adjustment, and I don’t want it all falling on my wife’s shoulders while I work.

Fortunately, I’ve had The Starcaster Chronicles #7 tucked away for a while for this very reason. I’ve been waiting for the “perfect” time to use it for some time off, and I can’t think of a better time than now.

So starting today, and for the next month and a half, I will be updated five days a week, Monday through Friday, with pages from Starcaster issue 7. It’s been a while, so if you want to catch up, the previous six issues are here. If you dig the Starcaster Chronicles, and want to support its creation and catch up with issue 8 which is almost finished, as well as be involved with the voting aspect, the Starcaster Chronicles Patreon is here. Patrons get four new pages each month.

I almost literally shouted in joy when seeing this page. Except it’s 2 AM and I have a four-year-old and a wife who’s trying to sleep.

Five freaking updates a week for a month and a half of Starcaster. Hell yeah.

Yeah, at first I got very sad that Tim is taking a break thinking there would be fewer or no posts for a while. Then the 5 days a week statement, he could have said nothing and most of us would have never known. instead, it feels like he is going to be working in overdrive.

Quarantine break: translation, too freaked out with the wife and kids but I refuse to descend into alcoholism.

Awesome! I had been thinking about how its been so long for this. Its always been a great story, really excited to see the next chapter now. It makes sense but it must be hard to put in the effort to finish something large like this, while still doing normal upload and just sit on it, not sharing it for awhile. Enjoy your break, glad we are able to get extra content to view during it πŸ™‚

Well, he has at least shared it and hasn’t had to sit on it completely, because the patrons were getting a few pages every month πŸ˜‰

Hooray! I was wondering what was happening with this. Wish I could have voted, but I understand why.

They escaped that cornering and he’s been wanting to get it off, but a space-battle broke out around this station and Space-Kore (read Goblins plz) has just now prevented their escape by crashing into the hanger.

Wow. You *finally” un shacked from its prison called Patreon. Took a pandemic for you to do it. It’s what it is. Something to help pass the time while in self isolation. Seriously though, a pandemic for us to be able to read it, kind of sad.

Since he was saving it for use as a vacation, I am sure we would have seen it closer to summer time when the kids were out of school. Instead of sass, you could have supported the project via Patreon and been in it sooner.

I don’t know about you, Nuna, but I’ve been able to read it this whole time. I just pay a couple bucks a month. To an artist. Who makes his living making art. That I mostly consume for free. If you don’t like it, take a hike. Artists need to make money too, and so the fact that Tim keeps the vast majority of his current AND back catalogue free, while only charging a very small fee to see the little bit extra early is pretty fair. And stop getting all tight over “oh I can’t justify being a patreon,… Read more »

Calling me entitled is crap. I was stating how I feel about his choices. Having a opinion is being entitled. I just think it’s in poor taste to release it in a time like this. It’s finished you have available. Instead of sharing it when we’re in the right place to read. He goes and decides to release during a pandemic. When there are more important things to worry about. My opinion which I have the right to have. I wasn’t acting entitled. Freedom of speech dumb ass.

If you’re not in the right place to read it, you don’t have to read it right now. Pretend that he *did* go on hiatus, wait for him to ‘come back’, and read this comic when it’s right for you. Problem solved.

Freedom of speech does not protect a person from the consequences of their words. In fact, freedom of speech in the American context only applies to government. The First Amendment, in terms of speaking out with controversial opinions, will not protect a person from being fired from their job, losing friends or significant others, or even being vilified by the general public. The First Amendment, however, prevents a person from being ARRESTED for an unpopular opinion, unless it crosses the boundary of hate crimes. So don’t quote freedom of speech, unless you actually know what it means. So don’t call… Read more »

While I’m a patreon, and get these, getting to re-read them will be fun! Enjoy (if you can) your time off. Here in Wyoming, they’re thinking of just calling it a school year for now, and then extending next year to catch the kids up. My two are all grown, so no skin off my nose either way.

Just update us from time, so we know you didn’t die or anything, lol!

OMG Yaaaaaassssss!

Quick question, Tim – will you still tell us the results of the already closed polls? Just out of curiosity?

Hope you enjoy your well deserved break!

Like the WTF swing from the last page my first thought was ‘Heh, is this what his Skyrim character would look like?’

I’d actually looked back at this Patreon and thought “I wonder if Tim will remind people about it to give it another spike of interest.”
Here is that time. Really excited to catch up with this, then finally get on that Patreon to catch up. Thank you to all the Patrons that already signed up and kept this passion project alive!
