Questions about the state of Confabule are circulating into Stikmanz HQ, with good reason. Due to an error by the original design team, an unfinished, unarchitected version of the website was public for a time when it should never have been. After some back and forth, we were finally able to have the site in its unfinished state made private. Some few have wondered why the site was up, albeit in an embarrassing state, but then went away. The short answer is that the site remains under development and should never yet have seen public light. It is our hope—mine and Amanda Kimmerly’s—that we shall be able to launch the site soon with the assistance of a new developer. Our plan at this time is to keep the site private until we are satisfied that it does what we wish and represents our vision in an acceptable manner.
Questions about the website, however, are not the same as questions about Confabule, the company Amanda and I have begun. That entity, Confabule LLC, is operational. It is the venue through which the book Amanda and I co-authored, The Way It Grows: An Introduction to Dvarsh, has been released, and more projects are in the works. These go forward even as we continue shaping our eventual web presence.
If you’d like to find out more about Confabule and our plans for near, middle and far futures, come by Wizard World Austin Comic Con, November 11-13 at the Austin Convention Center. Look for Amanda and me at the Stikmanz table in artist alley. We’ll have books, postcards, dice and our own informative selves on hand to grabble with questions about reality.
