Hi I’m Josh. And I’m Jean. And we are Full Runa! Well, part of it. You see, being ‘Runa’ is about being part of community, however, when this narrative adventure started, it was just the two of us. We met when we were little kids, and ever since, we've shared an irrational and unhealthy passion for stories and storytelling. We got into everything, from books and videogames to movies and theater, and while we enjoyed every second of it, something was always missing.

In the end, we both became writers through very different paths, building stories of the wildest kinds wherever and whenever we could. That, along with our ill-advised obsession with narrative, gave us a very particular perspective on storytelling, one that fits perfectly with the magical world of transmedia! A world where tales cannot be bound to a single piece of writing, a world where stories manifest themselves in whatever way they can; images, audio, text or video. That’s what transmedia is all about: one universe, many mediums, and an infinite number of stories.



Years ago, when we started studying narrative, we found a massive amount of phenomenal characters that were ruined by the tags they carried. “Fabulous”, “tomboyish”, “addict”, “hero”. We always felt that it was a mistake, a shortsighted attempt that instead of easing stereotypes, replicated them. So when we started writing, we decided that our characters would be defined by one single word: Human, with all the depth and complexity that such a word entails. Imperfect and yet lovable, like a dog with untamable hair.

So after years of fluttered hair, we got here. After thinking and rethinking entire universes, we decided to start Full Runa Studio as a means to share the stories we had in our heads with others who want the same thing we want, with other ‘Runa’. This is where YOU come in. We started working in our universe and our stories years ago, and we are now ready to share the first few with you; three of them, to be precise. The comics ‘Mama’ and ‘Tiny Thorns’, one dark and gritty and one light hearted and easy to enjoy, and a novel, ‘The Lost Thorn’, which explores what we’ve come to call the Full Runa Storyworld, from the perspective of a depressive mage in a decadent 22nd century world.



With your help, and if you like what you see, (the comic that is, not Josh or Jean). Actually, never mind, if you think any of us is cute and want to patron that, go ahead. But even if that’s the case, we will still use your money to help Full Runa grow. Every dime we get will help us maintain our world, keep the stories we already have running, and allow us to work on more stories in every imaginable medium.

Keep in mind that we’re not working alone, a group of awesome people is collaborating with us, visual artists, voice actors, filmmakers; friends from all paths of life that we've made around the world and that are now betting on Full Runa out of passion. You would be supporting them too, all of us. We are, before anything else, a community. We are Runa.



By supporting us, you become part of that community. You become ‘Runa’, and earn the sincerest thanks from some guys whose dream of making art for a living you just helped further.

Signed,

Jean & Josh

Creating content is not cheap, we all have lives and expenses and we really appreciate you taking part in promoting art this way. At this level you’re individually covering a good part of the cost of a single issue of your favorite story, and collectively you’re helping us maintain the diversity that you see in our studio. This is the most impressive thing you can do, you’re bringing smiles, giggles and sighs to a group of amazing people who love art. We’re not talking about ourselves, we’re talking about all of you, our Runa brothers and sisters!

Here you will get all the previous rewards, your name will be featured in ALL of our content and you will also get to send in a question for Jean or Josh to answer live each month (or anybody else from the team if we can get them on the livestream).

“I don’t think you make art for yourself. I think you make art because because you don’t like the world you see with your eyes, and you don’t like others to be trapped in that world. I think you make art because you found enjoyment in the littlest of things, and you want to share that tingly giggly feeling with those around you. I think that Patreon gives everyone that chance to share, to both creators and supporters.” -Josh

“I think you make art for the glory of Our Lord and Savior Raptor Jesus.” -Jean

  • All our previous rewards
  • Your name will be featured in every single one of our products.
  • You will be able to send in an open question for Jean or Josh to read live on the stream.

At this level you will get a Deluxe Digital signed copy of the novel “The Lost Thorn”, available only to Patreon subscribers. Josh will sign and scan a new page and include it in the file you’ll receive. We’ll also give you a shout out in our livestream plus all the previous rewards!

“The Lost Thorn is the novel that started Full Runa as a Studio, and the one that set the groundwork for the sprawling universe where our stories take place. The novel is a big chunk of myself: to me it’s like a jagged mirror, and sharing it with someone, while signing it by hand, is the most personal way I have of saying ‘thanks’.” - Josh

“While neither Josh nor I consider ourselves… I don’t know; qualified? To critique the work of anybody else but our own, we understand the feeling of wanting feedback from someone you can trust. So for those interested, we don’t mind saying a few words regarding what impression we got from your writing or… anything really.” - Jean

  • All our previous rewards
  • A Digital Deluxe copy of the novel “The Lost Thorn”. (Individually autographed)
  • Critique of a visual art piece or an up to 2000 word piece of writing. A handful of thoughts.

This is… just amazing. We didn’t know what to give you as a reward here, so while we were talking about this, someone said ‘Let’s do a swimsuit calendar’. So that’s what we are doing! At this level you get all the previous rewards plus a custom-made swimsuit calendar for the month coming after your contribution for Full Runa. You also get the rewarding feeling of emotionally scarring our lead writers, photographers and pretty much everyone else in the Full Runa offices.

“Wait what? I didn’t agree to this. What do you mean it’s in my contract? Oh God…” -Jean

“Being half naked properly reflects the way I work most of the time, so I see no issues with it.” -Josh, while unnecessarily taking off his shirt.

  • All our previous rewards
  • You get a custom made swimsuit-calendar featuring a member a Full Runa
  • Note: Jean & Josh are the only ones bound by contract to do this, so they are likely the only ones to appear.

We know way too well how hard it is to start a project without big corporate investors or massive following so, in a sense, we'd like to give that back to the community that has supported us. At this level, not only will you get all the previous rewards, but we’ll also help you promote yourself or the content you produce. This is not meant for big corporations or fancy enterprises, this is meant for you, our Runa, the talented underdogs trying to claw their way up. Of course, we will ask you to have a short chat session with us to discuss how we will do it.
“I may even consider the time-tested sign of gratitude of naming my first-born after you.” -Josh

“A stable, rule-abiding partner will peacefully get you to the top. We're in for the rollercoaster ride.” -Jean

  • All our previous rewards
  • We'll work together to promote you and your content.

We can afford non-expired ramen and tuna for our daily diet! (Protein is important for those thong calendars).

At this point we’re covering only the most basic Full Runa’s operative costs. However, the fact that we ARE covering some costs is reason enough to celebrate. We’ll hold a special livestream event, centered around interacting with you guys. Maybe even play some video games! And we’ll give you a tour of Josh’s and some other victim’s creative process when working with the Full Runa Storyworld. You can send in your questions and we’ll answer them live!
