It`s been a whole year. Many of you took part in the previous contest, with your fanarts, fanfics and designs. Some of the designs presented have already appeared in the regular plot, others will do soon (veeery soon)

While other comics in the top 20 of Smackjeeves have hundreds or even thousands of followers, this comic doesnt have even 100, and it doesnt need them. If Eatatau! is where it is, is because of you, because or your visits, because everyday thousands of people around the world come here and read this crap, this crap that i draw because I love it and because you tell me that you like it. Is not because i can make a living out of it (I`d love to) but because i love to read your comments. I love to read when you laugh with the character`s jokes, when you suffer when they suffer, when you shout at them as if they were living beings, when I realise that you look at your screen and see more than bits and pixels, you see characters, you talk to them, you get involved with them, you feel them. I dont have words in english nor in any lenguage to express how grateful I am to all of you for that comments. Besides, as you know, im not good in english, so just let me say "thanks". TT^TT

And to thank you, as to celebrate the third birthday of Eatatau!, i wanted to do something different, something special, and above all, something to involve you, people, in it.

So, there it is!"The event cart" Everyone who take part in the contest will have a chance to get it and change, maybe forever, the course of the plot.

Whoever get it, be wise, because with great power... well, you know. ^-^

Thanks and peace.

Good question somebody sent me to my mail, so im copypasting it here for everybody.


Sorry to bother you but I just wanted clarification on the Fanfic contest.

Under the [basis] section you mention "theme related to Eatatau", but further down in the comments, and I quote "Eversor- You can write about whatever you want, if you check the previous contest`s entries you can see huge deviations. So, feel free to make whatever you want, the most interesting, the better. ^^"

Does this potentially mean we are permitted to conceive a plot/environment/characters, with no relation in any shape to the current plot/environment/characters in your own comic aside from the universe itself? If so, how far can we venture around the eatatau/40k universe and how extreme can our ideas be within a believable level?

Oh and if a fanfic piece exceeded the limit of two sides by a relatively small amount, how does that effect the entry?

Thankyou for your time.


When i said that to eversor I meant it, but this is still a contest of Fanpics and fanfics aboout Eatatau!. This means that you can write anything involving something concerning Eatatau!. This means, for example, writting a love (or sex) history involving Shashiva and Aetherion, or about one side mission of any character, or so... One of the first fics i received was around the rape, killing and vore of Shashiva. Although quite extreme, that is still considered an Eatatau! fanfic. ;)

This means that you cant write (well, you can, but not for the contest XDDD) a history about a necron trying to get back an orb from the orks, because, although related to warhammer, its would not to Eatatau!.

If you would want to write a story about Durchii or COFCOFDarkfalleneldarsCOFCOGH, you could write the story around one (or more) of the eldars of Hebradanahast that appeared in the main plot of Eatatau!. For example, around Drazzt, Kashira, some shadow warriors...

Also, you could write about things i didnt show yet, as, for example, how was Selene created and a little about her life, or what happened with kor`la`s father after/before he met Johnson...

Of course, this is "unnoficial" and wont change at all the main plot or background of Eatatau! (well, if i like it a lot, maybe... ;)...)

The best thing you can think in is. "I know nothing about warhammer, only about Eatatau. What can i write about?"

After all, Eatatau! is a personal and totally original universe no way related to that copyrighted game!!! XDDDD

2- If the fanfic exceeds a little is not so big deal, but more than half a page is not considered "a little".

Oh, BTW, for the spanish talking readers. You can write in spanish, but as this is a contest by votes, if you write it in english (or in both lenguages) probably you will have far more votes. ^^

Cool. It's like Money in the Bank for a webcomic. Wonder who will cash it in and for what?

Raven Coldheart (Guest), September 12th, 2012, 9:34 am

Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolute. :D

Now I will write a fanfic, because I can't draw. -.-'

Eversor (Guest), September 12th, 2012, 9:39 am

Do the fan-fics have to stick to the storyline or are minor deviations allowed?

I'm thinking about writing a fan-fic about a scene that happened in-between the comics.

Skarsnia (Guest), September 12th, 2012, 9:41 am

yay a new contest! maybe I will draw a pic if I have enough time. (orcish of course ;D)

True_Darius, September 12th, 2012, 9:44 am

Eversor- You can write about whatever you want, if you check the previous contest`s entries you can see huge deviations. So, feel free to make whatever you want, the most interesting, the better. ^^

Skarsnia, remember, its a Fanart contest, so it has to be around Eatatau! (Not warhammer) ;)

the "shadow warriors" are called mandrakes in the human language and there is probably a kabal called shadow warriors.

No comic strip this week x.X

Silent Supporter (Guest), September 13th, 2012, 9:35 pm

Been reading your comic for almost a year now and I have to say, this comic has got to be more popular than your number of followers suggests. For what it's worth, I know a lot of people who are fans of 'that which won't be named' and I've pointed them all to this site.

And every one of them has been interested after the first page.

Skarsnia (Guest), September 16th, 2012, 8:58 am

yep I remember. but when I draw an orc with one of the characters of eatatau, it counts. or not?

True_Darius, September 16th, 2012, 8:59 am

Well... yeah, i guess. XD

Henry91, September 17th, 2012, 4:12 pm

If you want more followers...
Just make a few short stories about Angry Marines, Knights Inductor or Emprahsque for instant 1d4chan following. :P

True_Darius, September 18th, 2012, 7:20 am

I just know about the angry marines :P

Lorcan (Guest), October 23rd, 2012, 5:00 pm

Last minute I know, but you said to post questions here. Working on a fan-fic entry right now. I know you said two pages max, but here's my question.

If I write a longer story, can I enter it in parts as seperate entries? Since you said we could enter up to 3 stories, can I enter 3 stories as one long fiction divided into 2 or 3 two page chapters? :D

True_Darius, October 23rd, 2012, 5:39 pm

You can, but people will vote one out of three, so basically you will be splitting your votes into a third (and no, they wont pile up) So I think it`ll be better to write a short one for the contest, and leave the long one for another time, or sending it as a regular fanfic.

Lorcan (Guest), October 23rd, 2012, 6:07 pm

Ah. Okay. I managed to write the first chapter and am pretty happy with it, so I'll just send in that and send in the rest another time.

Henry91, October 27th, 2012, 7:11 am

You (The reader, not just Darius) should totally take a peek at Knights Inductor (Reasonable Marines) and the Writefaggotry around them and The Emprahsque, it's epic.
And like the Angry Marines - excellent fuel for Non Sequitur gags. :3
