Wayward Kickstarter - Nystul's Infinite Dungeon - Mike's Shirked Responsibility is Returned to Him

Woe unto you, self proclaimed Wandering Wizard, he that tried and failed to secure land for a Castle, lost his claim to Dwarven kinship, misplaced his Cairn and now has had title and responsibilities for his Infinite Dungeon (yet to be completed) returned unto him. The Infinite Headache is yours and yours alone.

Yes, tho hast failed in your attempt at "passing the buck" whilst failing to provide said bucks for services rendered.

Let it be entered into the Tome of Kickstarters: Failures and Fuck Ups, that Nystul's Infinite Dungeon has landed back in your lap. While we appreciate your work on the key to said dungeon, perhaps it wouldst be wisest to pay your workers for their services.

So it is written!

From an update in the comments section of Nystul's Infinite Dungeon - Kickstarter:
The Last Infinite Dungeon Update 
Posted on August 1, 2014 by Administrator  
It is with a sad heart that I, Jason Yarnell, president of D3 Adventures, must inform all of you that as of this moment, D3 Adventures has returned the IP for Nystul’s Infinite Dungeon to Mike Nystul. 
The property has, from the beginning, incurred one unexpected roadblock after another. The most recent of these concerned a lack of payment for a completed chapter. I was not made aware of this issue when D3 Adventures picked up the IP, and as of this date, the writer has not received the promised payment. 
This is an unfortunate set of circumstances, and this decision was not made lightly. D3 Adventures promised that we would release the Nystul’s Infinite Dungeon in a timely manner, and was able to produce an ashcan copy for the backers. However, in the end, the various unresolved issues proved to be too much, and holding on to Nystul’s Infinite Dungeon was simply holding back on D3 Adventures’ transition into a more productive company. 
From this point forward please address all questions and concerns for Nystul’s Infinite Dungeon to Mike Nystul.


  1. Wow. This cluster just keeps getting worse for Mike. Wonder if he's learned anything at all from the experience?

    1. That Nystul's Magic Aura was aptly named perhaps?

  2. I'm glad I never backed this. For free, I get more amusement than I could have ever gotten from a finished copy of Nystul's Infinite Dung-gym.

  3. I wonder how much accidental hate mail old Mike Nystul from early Fasa and Battletech fame gets due to this r-tard.

    1. Aren't they the same person? That's the impression I got after 2 minutes of googling.

    2. According to Mike's entry in Wikipedia, they are one and the same.

  4. Nystul's Infinite Crapstorm isn't released yet? He just announced in the updates he's working on a 17x22 dungeon that will be out "any day now". Surely 2+ years is an entirely reasonable time period for this masterpiece.

  5. At some point mike should just take out a loan and ise it to return all money. Release everything he has ever done for free online. Join a monestary and spend his remaining years praying for forgiveness.

    1. Monasteries won't take you if you have outstanding debts. So he'd have to pay those off first.
