Lesbian horror film director, Final Girl columnist and Ghostella’s Haunted Tomb creator and Womanthology contributor Stacie Ponder needs your help to make her dork dreams come true. Ponder, who also penned the AfterEllen.com column Toosday Tunes, has fashioned a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a print edition of her webcomic, RPG. As Ponder puts it, “the comic follows Alyth, a farm girl who finds herself cast in the unlikely role of world-saving hero when her village is destroyed. She journeys all across the land of Hyberia and battles fearsome monsters, loots every dead body she can, acquires party companions, visits taverns, levels up, and completes quests both large and small as she attempts to foil the forces of evil.”
Dorky, right? Please watch the below video and help Stacie bring RPG to life.
