Wayward Kickstarter - Myth & Magic Player's Guide - Last Spotted April 26th, 2016

Ah, yes. The Myth & Magic Player's Guide. Not to be confused with an actual, for real, in the hands of the gaming public, Player's Guide. For most, it's still a myth.

Well, that's not 100% correct. I do have my copy (after Tom was nice enough to share my full name and shipping address in the comments section - oh, you so silly Tom!)

See, Tom's a lawyer (alternative spelling - "Liar" - is not approved but may be considered accurate in some circumstances) As such, Tom does the absolute minimum to keep legal repercussions at arms distance.

In other words, Tom is playing the vast majority of his backers.

You should also know the last communication from Tom was this:

Five months ago today. Comments since then from the backers? Still waiting on their shit.

Oh, I forgot, Tom is a "Tax Lawyer" by day. That means that, according to him, it's always tax season and he's always overwhelmed.

No worries, right? I mean, I'm sure he declared all of his tax liabilities for his 2 Kickstarters. It's not like he spent the money and there's no cash left to ship product. That would never happen.

BTW, his last communication prior to March 23, 2016 was this bit:

I may have been unfair with Gareth, as Tom is possibly the most distasteful project creator I've dealt with on Kickstarter. He must be a hoot to have as a lawyer: "No worries Mr Smith, I've told the IRS we'll be ready for your Audit on Tuesday. Now excuse me, I'll be out of the state for the next 13 months. Don't worry, I'll email. "


  1. Guys like this are why I self-identify as an "attorney" and not a "lawyer."

    (Difference? You never hear "attorney jokes," only "lawyer jokes."

  2. I was one of the lucky ones to get mine... Oh wait, I wouldn't call it lucky now. I have 4 copies taking up space on my shelf. Anybody want one?

    1. Yes, I'd actually love one, if you're serious. If so, send me an email to tim dot huntley at icloud dot com and we'll figure it out. :)

    2. Yes, I'm serious. I'll email you shortly.

  3. We've been cleaning out the garage and I found a box with a couple copies. When I received my 4, I gave one to my brother. We ran one session and then I threw them in a box.
    The wait and negativity really tainted the game for me (that and the insane numbers). I'll check but I think I have 2 copies if anyone wants one.

  4. Still waiting in overseas (Germany) for my copy. Never got a reply after April from this #$%.

    I would love to get a copy for a fair price though. Just contact me at cyric@gmx.net. Thx!
