Battlements takes place in a fantasy world all on its own. Sword-and-board! Wizards-and-warriors! Bears-and-battle maces! Legendary creatures and adventurers gallivant across the lands seeking fame and fortune. Follow Hector, Shane, Rail, and Gene as they try to make a name for themselves as adventurers while staying alive.

Before we go any further, who are we?
"We" refers to Jake Rieman and Vic Carlstrom, the two creative forces behind the webcomic. Jake is a professional illustrator by day, and also a professional illustrator by night (he draws a lot). He is responsible for the awesome art work of the comic. He does the writing with Vic to make a refined high fantasy romp. Vic is a graphic and web designer for a day job. He handles the other functions of the operation, like social media, postings, site design, as well as writing for the comic. He's also working on a few other components in the background that will be coming soon.

Why are you on Patreon?
We both work regular day jobs and do our work for Battlements in our free time. We would love for the comic to become self-sustaining. Funds from Patreon donations would allow us to update regularly and provide additional content. We want to share our process for art and writing with our patrons as we build out a world of high fantasy hi-jinks. This includes works in progress, sketches, and regular insights on how we craft the Battlements world. Some of our higher goals are to update and maintain the comic as a full color endevaour, create a creators' discussion either through YouTube or podcasting, and publish a set of RPG adventures that take place in the Battlements world for our readers with a gaming edge like us.

We can't thank you enough for reading the comic. Its been something we have been working on for a long time and felt it was finally time to give it legs to stomp around. We look forward to making the comic as incredible as we can to make an awesome adventure for our readers. Thank you for your support, and we hope to see you at a convention for some high-fives.
