Skirmish Unboxing Contest Winners

The unboxing contest concludes- time for prizes!  
I couldn’t choose just one, so I’m changing the rules of this contest at the last minute. Dictator-for-Life Dave has spoken. Instead of one, I decree TWO winners. They were both simply too good- Lord Kiyo with his Puppetmaster entry, and Zeph with his 90’s Commercial entry. Loved them.  
And more decrees! Every entrant is getting a runner-up prize, because they are fabulous people who deserve it.  
Kiyo entered earliest, and gets to choose the Skirmish character we feature. Then I’ll send him and Zeph an exclusive Skirmish shirt featuring that character! (Message me with size and color preferences.)  
Everyone who entered will get a sticker of this exclusive design, because I was blown away by everyone. Kickstarter-Message me with your latest delivery address.  
Check out all the entries, and feel free to use ‘em if any friends are curious just what this Skirmish thing is all about.  

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tlSnhKnHvJg Lord Kiyo- Puppetmaster. I’ve never seen this done with a plush before- it was equal parts creepy and adorable for me.
  • https://www.deviantart.com/the-diamond-paw/art/How-To-Unbox-Skirmish-761466563 Diamond Paw- Pure magic, quite literally! The white gloves were a perfect touch.
  • https://www.deviantart.com/yaminokitsune/art/Skirmish-debalage-entrance-761858806 YaminoKitsune- X marks the spot, and the commentary on this treasure hunt makes it a fun one..  
  • https://twitter.com/Foxyverse/status/1034509464420933635 Mancoin- Whip has found an alternative use for the packaging materials.  
  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=U_TGCbkEKkQ Zeph creates the best Dreamkeepers commercial I’ve ever seen! Still jazzed from the soundtrack and cool camerawork.  
  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIlojYmjPbE&feature=youtu.be “Because nobody likes Tinsel-” I lol’d.

I’ve been distracted printing Firebrat, but Wave 2 Skirmish merch is next on the docket. We’ll update with news at least monthly until it’s delivered. Skirmish games are now for (limited) sale publicly at http://www.dreamkeeperscomic.com/skirmish.html so if you have friends interested or Christmas gifts on the mind, this is the place. We put 30 in stock for sale, over half are already gone.

13th Annual Dreamkeepers Halloween Fanart Contest



Bursting from the rotten ground, thirteen years to the day, it rises again. The Dreamkeepers Halloween Fanart Contest is upon us!

For the 13th year, we have something exceptional in store. The Grand Prize Winner of the “Best Art” category will receive a Collector’s Edition Dreamkeepers Skirmish boxed game set, signed by Dave, Liz, and the game developers Michael & Spencer.

Grand Prize winners in the other categories will receive a plush Whip to mollify their terror, or a signed Hardcover Prelude Collection for battering ghouls. Winner’s choice.

Runner-ups get a Dreamkeepers button pack or Troika sew-on fabric patch. And everyone- every last entrant- gets a free Trick-or-Treat sticker. But be sure to claim your prize via e-mail by November 15th, or it vanishes like a ghost!

Catch entry instructions and rules here: http://www.dreamkeeperscomic.com/HalloweenRules.html
Sample terror from the first Twelve Years here: http://dreamkeeperscomic.com/Halloween.html

And now for some Grave News.

This will be the last year to enter submissions for the Writing Category in the Halloween Contest. We’re considering an entirely separate contest for Dreamkeepers fiction in future years, so we’ll retire the Writing Category from the Fanart Contest in 2019. Ye be warned!

And for more Grave News- we’re having a first-ever sale on Amazon! Hardcover Prelude Collections, normally upwards of $50, are over half off. Volumes 1 and 4 are going for $13.00.


Why a suddden sale, you ask? Amazon has switched to monthly billing for their long-term storage fees. So we’re clearing inventory, and going forward will have much smaller batches of books available at any given time. Volumes 2 and 3 are already out of stock on Amazon.

Get ready for a month of chilling art, comic fun, and high-quality games. Let the contest begin.
